could have been perfect, but the whole night out with the cops plot thread is completely over the top in a way not in keeping with the sustained brilliance of the rest of the flick.

too bad. still plenty of priceless shit in it. i liked it better than knocked up.

I loved that whole bit, but it did go a little too far. Still, I think it is justified by setting up "You just cockblocked McLovin!" which is maybe the most stupidly perfect exclamation in the history of filmed comedy.

I thought it was hard to root for/sympathize with Seth (Jonah Hill). After we saw it, my friend and I actually argued over whether the audience is supposed to believe that Jules is even potentially interested in him. I argued that it seems more like she's taking pity on him. Thoughts?
