Its opened ended and while I know that can infuriate people looking for closure (and worse, a message) its the truth about this shocking and original film. There is some brutal violence, use of heroin and even essentially a date rape. Give it a watch. Jody Hill introduced the film and told us it was not finished but it still was pretty awesome.
In fact, I would say if you're not offended in certain scenes, then there may be actually something wrong with you. I don't dislike the guy, he's had his moments but I think he is over rated as a whole. Usually in a mainstream film you can find SOMETHING redeemable but with Observe and Report it is such tried and true garbage that I would literally never choose to sit through it ever again. This movie had me wishing that I never wasted my time or money on it. This is a great movie that knocks you on your ass with its dark humor and is indeed offensive. This movie is hilarious. I'm only 17 years old. He also gains the confidence to pursue his dream girl, cosmetics associate Anna Farris (a hilarious supporting role, rather than the co-lead the marketing suggests). A bloke works at the mall, wants to be a police officer, goes about being a police officer, doesn't become a police officer, tries to get the girl of his dreams to fall in love with him, doesn't get the girl of his dreams to fall in love with him. Rogen is excellent as Ronnie Barnhardt, who is rude to most people, yet is still kind of likable and ia infatuated with Brandi (Anna Faris) the blonde makeup consultant, even having sex with her when she's virtually unconscious. Seth Rogen plays the head of mall security. Dark? Avoid this, watch Taxi Driver instead. If I wasn't so vehemently dead set against walking out of movies in an actual theater I would have spared myself the hour and a half of torture. But you will not get what you expect. The rest of the cast exemplified terrific comedic timing, especially Ray Liotta. It was not. I went in expecting a pretty bad but comfortably mindless movie filled with dumb humor and fart jokes.
I've watched this film almost half a dozen times so I guess I am part of the Observe and Report cult. Even when they don't work under Apatow, there is real work, wit and earned laughs in what they do, and here is a film that is a perfect example of how elemental film techniques can make a movie funny. This movie has taken different story lines from different movies and it's just meant kaput! What can I say? I got the dark and angry. I am ranking it 10 out of 10 to redress the unfair balance. The mall seems like the perfect metaphor for what has happened to American society.
It avoids lame attempts a comedy opting instead to be a real character study of a very sick and damaged individual.
I'm a big fan of Seth Rogen and Ray Liotta, and Anna Faris is one of the few actresses that can be both sexy and funny. The film has dream elements where he comes close to realizing his over the top ambitions only to be smacked in the face by societal regulations. On the con side however the plot was very similar to Paul Blart. Seth Rogen plays a hyped up mall security guard who wants nothing more than to be able to carry a gun and carry off Anna Faris' character a hot counter girl at the mall. Its almost as good in the way that Bad Santa was good. On a serious note, there are a lot of young men who cannot fit into society and find a deeper purpose for living. I went in to the movie theater to see "Observe and Report" knowing it was going to be a lot darker than a typical goofball comedy. Now is the film an indictment of a crazed society and its shiftless youth or is it a nihilistic celebration of recklessness and mental illness? Ronnie decides to take the case into his own hands. A disappointment in every way...made to shock but instead bores you to death and makes you want to run from the theater, Disturbing and funny, but maybe not funny enough, Expected one thing, but got so much better (spoilers), Not as bad as people have written..........give it a chance. He becomes territorial when veteran detective Ray Liotta begins investigating the two crimes, and unwittingly makes an ass of himself trying to show him up. But for those who are not fans of dark comedy you may hate it, it all depends on your taste. The characters that are supposed to be comedic are just annoying (the drunk mother, the slutty cosmetic girl, the lisping sidekick). Directed by Jody Hill. But when Barnhardt can't bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective is recruited to close the case. I can easily understand why many people were turned off by this film, Its easily one of the darkest comedies i've ever seen. But perhaps the darkest element of the story is Ronnie (Seth Rogen).
This movie is a laugh-out-loud spectacle. If he was retarded, how did he fill out all of the police forms and set up an interview so easily? An extremely outrageous inappropriate film filled with profanity and crude remarks plus an incredible soundtrack! Ridiculous. But it seems that the harder Rogen tries the worse things get for him. I'm a big fan of Seth Rogen, but this movie is just an insult to him and all he stands for. It finished and I thought to myself "That was it?" The comedy fell woefully short. The head of mall security, Ronnie Barnhardt (Seth Rogen), makes it his mission to catch the flasher.
It was funny, but it always felt like it could be funnier. Upon going into the theatre for "Observe and Report" on its opening day, I was under the impression that I was about to see an 18A-rated Mall Cop. I thought the ending was good, can't see what other people thought was so bad about it, yes it was a bit harsh, but all was OK. It is a boring, stultifying environment where banality is seen as the highest good and crass consumerism is the almighty God. Complete Garbage. Seth Rogan is on a slippery slope downwards. He dreams of shooting the bad guys and getting the hot girl (Anna Faris, a bimbo who works at a makeup counter at the mall). The mall cop catches the flasher and falls in love with the girl. His work divide audiences sharply, and even those who like it, like myself, have their reservations. After all, if it came out two months after another slapstick film like "Paul Blart: Mall Cop", it better not be the same movie. I was expecting this to be a gut busting, laugh out loud comedy. I gave the film a 7 out of 10 because of Seth Rogen's performance with a few noteworthy comedic shines from Anna Faris but most of all for the intelligent and hilarious dark humor the film contains. Most actors, if they want to have a lengthy career, have to prove their versatility (Johnny Depp, for example). Certain professions like security guard seem to attract nutballs, guys who dream of a police badge and a gun yet have to settle for chasing off skateboarders from the mall parking lot while carrying mace and at most a tazer. He then refuses to call paramedics for the gravely wounded perv opting instead to take him to the police station in his security guard golf cart. Very Dark and Very Funny, But That's Not All. Maybe I just didn't "get" it; yeah, that's it. Every scene that is supposed to be comedic falls flat and drags on and on and on.
