Two childhood friends who are stuck for ideas concerning their dwindling cash supply resort to making a porno film, but soon realise their true feelings for each other.
This film is probably one of the very few exceptions in the genre of rom-coms, for the reason that it is actually watchable by guys and indeed that it is a pretty hilarious movie! It had me in stitches for a good one hour, the story is unique and the acting is great especially from Rogen and Justin Long who plays a hilarious if short role. The laughs fell off towards the end and the romance took over slightly too much which felt rather unbalanced which in turn let it turn into more of a romance than a comedy. This was this films worst point for me and I felt disappointed when the credits rolled that it wasn't finished up in a better way, perhaps with a tad more comedy and perhaps with some of the loose ends tied up. Apart from this aspect everything else about this movie rocked! It was extremely laugh out loud the first hour, a few bits and pieces of full-frontal nudity and sex scenes were also a welcome addition but didn't play too big a role to make it feel seedy. A great watch for a few laughs albeit a fairly disappointing ending.
Pros - Heaps and heaps of laughs for the first hour, sex and nudity a plenty! Awesome acting throughout both from a porno perspective and that of film :P some of the best parts are when the classic porno stereotype is ripped off! A great comedy with just enough romance to make it not too soppy.
Cons - The ending! I don't know what happened, they maybe ran out of funding so could finish it up as they wanted, got lazy or didn't know how to finish it, i don't know, it just didn't seem right. Hardly any comedy present and bucket loads of puppy romance was a disappointment, and then the abrupt ending which leaves you with questions and no answers. Luckily enough this movie is still worth the watch for some of the classic laughs during the first hour which is the only thing that keeps this one afloat for me. Give it a watch, guys will love the first half, chicks will love the second...win win i guess!
3.5/5 Jandals = A porno with plot!
