Movie Review by Zara
December 16th, 2009

OK, this movie is good for a couple of reasons and bad for many.

Firstly, since I'm a big Jason Schwartzman fan, I hate seeing him look this fat and bloated and flat out stupid and creepy. It was one thing to be a little eccentric like in RUSHMORE, but the entire time that he's playing out this role of the guy who is going to turn in the douchebags who are cheating, it's just plain creepy and wrong. Save for the last scene where he's singing, I wanted to get a crowbar and beat him over the head until he shut up.

Jaime King (here still James King) stinks as always. Devon Sewan is still that guy who can be just a little bit cool but has this look about him like he'd set your dog on fire if you weren't paying close enough attention to him.

Nah, the best parts come from the bit players, oddly enough two people who have had more success on television (and ended up together again on his current hit show), Laura Prepon and Jason Segel. Segel is still young, long haired and reminding me of Nick from when he was on "Freaks and Geeks" and plays the role with some edge to it. Prepon just flat out gets a chance to be a total freak. So at the end of the flick when the two of them hook up, even if only in my mind, that scene made sitting through a (honestly, rather painless) hour and 26 minutes not all that bad.

Yeah, hearing Prepon call Segel a "c*cksucker" was priceless.

Oh, and yes, there's a brief cameo with Cameron Diaz, for those of you who are still into her. But don't watch the movie if that's your only reason for doing so.
