Role Models Review

 

Tech Wolf brought over Role Models this past weekend and we really enjoyed it.  I would give it a 9 out of 10.  A definite owner with plenty of rewatchability.

This is a great movie about fandom, passion and embracing that which makes you happy in life no matter what others might think.  Add in KISS to the mix and it rocks! 

It brought back fond memories of when I hung out with members of the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) and battled in arms with them.  It also brought back the nights of the Vampire LARP (Live Action Role Playing).

Likes

  • Acting:  including the child actors both Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Augie Farques and Bobb'e J. Thompson as Ronnie Shields did a great job
  • Funny and entertaining
  • Irreverent but not disrespectful
  • Fandom
  • KISS references

Plot / Story: 

The world's least-likely mentors, Danny (Paul Rudd) & Wheeler (Seann William Scott) must put aside their selfish, sarcastic and party-driven ways in order to give two odd, foul-mouthed kids invaluable wisdom about life, love and heavy metal.
