In his review for the film Observe and Report:
History will attest that the most frequently occurring character in the comedies of this decade has been the self-inflated blowhard who is actually a pinhead, but in the hands of man-child Rogen, Ronnie is several degrees to the right of a blustering Ben Stiller or Will Ferrell.
We watch in shock as this wannabe cop engages in date rape, hard-drug abuse and vigilante mayhem that seems derived from repeated viewings of “Taxi Driver.” Some of the slapstick is brutally funny, but the laughs are like involuntary confessions elicited by a taser.
Date rape, hard drug abuse, and vigilante mayhem. That pretty much identifies what conservative thought is. If you’re an unthoughtful film critic.
