We are big Paul Rudd fans here, although I don’t think we really realized this until seeing I Love You, Man earlier this year. Twice. Sure he was always on our radar, shining in flicks like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up, and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy… Heck, I’ve even liked him a good deal since I was a teen when he played Paris in William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, and who can forget Clueless? (I haven’t a clue! Ha!) But despite all of these factors, our stance towards Rudd was essentially that his appearance in a movie would be a welcome and happy surprise, but he wasn’t really a motivating force in terms of getting us to actually go see a movie. And then we saw I Love You, Man and got to thinking that Paul Rudd is genuinely a funny dude and maybe we need to watch more of his stuff and should get pro-active about doing so. This is how we came to rent Role Models. (more…)
