    Rudd and Scott hail from different universes of movie comedy, but manage together here just fine, particularly since each takes a different path. show more

    Sometimes a shamelessly stoopid, proudly profane R-rated comedy is all you want out of life. Role Models more than fills the bill. It's killer funny. show more

    Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times

    The kind of comedy where funny people say funny things in funny situations, not the kind of comedy that whacks you with manic shocks to force an audible Pavlovian response. show more
