Rated R · 86 minutes · 2009

Seth Rogen plays a man so unnervingly insane that it’s sometimes hard to figure out whether you should laugh or scream at him. His complete lack of stability gives the film—a hilarious effort from director Jody Hill—that wonderful and somewhat scary vibe that anything can happen. The funny-film rulebook was thrown out the proverbial window here. Rogen plays Ronnie, an obsessive mall security guard who takes it upon himself to become the protector of a perfume-counter girl (Anna Faris). When his bid to join the police force goes awry, Ronnie gets even nuttier, as does the film. The movie is quite fearless and certainly isn’t for everyone. It pushes the limits and scores big, if somewhat uncomfortable, laughs. Consider it a nice companion piece to Pineapple Express.
