I didn’t see this film when it first came out because I thought it was just another churned out by Seth Rogen. Luckily, he’s only the lead actor, and this picture is actually written and directed by Kevin Smith of Clerks and Chasing Amy fame. Smith’s favorite actors appear throughout, along with his wicked sense of very wrong humor and snappy dialogue.

It’s a much better film than Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and is considerably better than anything Rogen has done, even though it’s basically a romantic comedy. If you’re still not convinced, you need to see this film to work out what a ‘Dutch rudder’ involves because I’m not going to tell you. And don’t Google it. That’ll ruin the surprise.
