Indeed.

In my opinion, he isn't funny. He's overated. BUT; I have enjoyed movies he's in; Superbad, Knocked Up etc. The films were funny, Rogen wasn't that funny.

i don't mind seth rogen, just like i don't mind his movies. 'the hangover' was alright but nothing special, '40yo' was just a little bit worse, pineapple express was funny the first time but has little replay value. bro flicks are doomed to be shallow and crude and you can definitely squeeze some humor out of them, but they aren't instant classics like a lot of 'bros' claim.

rogen actually acted really well in 'funny people' though, and once you adjusted to his awkward character actually performing stand-up on stage, he had some pretty golden moments. he's nothing like the next jim carey or anything, mostly because a lot of his success is second hand off of judd's success, but he's not terrible.

and it isn't the case that most people like him because he's fat and ugly and anti-ashton. just like it isn't the case that most people like biggie because he's fat and different, just like it isn't the case that most people like obama because he's black and different. just like it isn't the case that most people like _______ because he's ______ and different. jesus it's amazing how hard one guy can try to apply his narrow polarized pessimistic view of a complex world when it just doesn't f*cking fit. lol
What does Seth Rogen and the Hangover have to do with each other? Just curious...

i'm not the biggest fan of rogen as an actor. i don't dislike his delivery style, but i don't mind it especially with guys like danny mcbride killing it alongside him.

i do think movies like superbad and 40 year old virgin are hilarious though. without judd appetow we'd still be getting american pie movies and the like.

it's the more raw language and subject matter that has kinda made these movies groundbreaking in terms of mainstream american comedy.

that said, seth rogen is a very gifted writer. he co-wrote superbad and pineapple express. he also did some writing on the ali g show back in 04 - which i didn't know, but i'm extremely impressed by.

but his movies are mostly funny because of the dialogue (he writes) and the greatness of guys like danny mcbride and craig robinson. i can put up with rogen to get more danny mcbride. "i made you guys dinner the other night. fish tacos!"

Rogen isn't funny; I never got the "fat guy is funny because he's fat" thing. Chris Farley barely pulled it off. The rest of these guys, Rogen, Jonah Hill, suck.

But at least they're funnier than Will Ferrell. I never got that guy; haven't laughed once.

So you didn't laugh at all during Anchorman?? Never laughed at "More Cowbell?" Never laughed at his Harry Carey impression (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=haAhdtDmsOw)? Never laughed at the Spartan cheerleaders? Never laughed during Taladega Nights? You're saying you could sit through BOTH Best of Will Ferrell SNL dvds and not laugh once?

If that's the case then I think it's an issue with you, not Ferrell lol

Superbad, Knocked Up, 40 Year Old Virgin, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno are all good comedies.

The rest of his movies that he's had a prime hand in, meh.

I'm kind of the same way when it comes to movies with Ferrell. I don't find him funny in movies that he stars in (I hate Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, etc.), but enjoy him when he has smaller roles like in Old School and Wedding Crashers. His SNL stuff is funny too like Harey Carey and the Celebrity Jeopardy skits.

Another actor who appears to be headed down the path of "Just not funny to me"? That short dude from that movie filmed in Vegas. It had Tyson and he knocked dude out. The tiger in the back of the car. The guy gets tasered "In the face!". Sorry, cant think of the movies name. But that short dude in it just isnt funny to me.

That's how it goes every single time. Ashton Kutcher was way funnier as Kelso than anything Seth Rogen has ever done, but Kutcher gets the hate from internet dweebs and Rogen gets the love. There was a thread about that Zac Efron kid playing Robin in a Batman movie, and everyone was like "I won't see it." I bet nobody has even seen this kid act, and they're butthurt because he's a teen idol.

Rant without much thought? Dude my farts are more profound than anything you've ever contemplated. GTFO silly redneck who tries to fit in as a "regular guy" but doesn't have a lick of culture, aptitude, or savoir faire




As for this, a lot of movies actually disappoint because they're confined to a strict Hollywood time limit and forced to end the story too quickly. Titanic was captivating from start to finish, it had action, drama, emotion, cinematography, it was an EPIC.

Indiana Jones..... is for 14 year olds. I honestly can't even believe I'm having this conversation with a grown man, this is EXACTLY what I'm talking about when I say you don't have taste, and you don't have a damn clue what you're talking about. It's not like "back and forth insult banter" I mean you REALLY dont have a clue what you're talking about. Fret not however, for you are the majority. The dumb, generic, get-in-where-you-fit-in nobody that makes up the public at large. Mr. Redneck.
got damn, why you gotta be so mean?
anyway, that's exactly how i feel. and its not even the internet dweebs but fat slobs in general.
