    I think the people who criticize his "comedy" are one's who appreciate actual comedy. What amounts to set up observational humor and gay/fat/retarded jokes is as low brow as you get. His stuff has always been a tier above Adam Sandler and with The Interview, he seems to go full Sandler. I take that back, all he needs is the product advertising that Sandler gets away with and he will be a near mirror image of him.

    The only thing ive truly enjoyed him in is when he guest appears on The League as Dirty Randy. But that of course is not his writing and is a complete 180 from his character in his movies.

    Sandler isn't at all a fair comparison. He's marginally more funny than any of the post-SNL crowd from the last couple decades but none of his films are as good as even the worst of the non-Apatow stoner crew. This was also better than something like A Million Ways to Die in the West, staying in the "low brow" (which I think is pretty pure) humor department.

    I'm pretty particular when it comes to comedy though. I don't see where a show like Brooklyn 99 made it passed pilot. I tried watching that tonight, because my brothers think it's hilarious, and couldn't find a thing to laugh about. It felt completely flat, like all of Samberg's schtick, even though I agree with his take on camp and if you're going to do camp I think it should be naive, still, it was simply not funny at all.

    Comedy is just so subjective.

    Actually Rogen and Jason Mantzoukas who plays Rafi have co-written many of the Dirty Randy Episodes.

    Im willing to bet he only helped write one episode and that would be the mental hospital one. The rest im sure he simply had some creative improv..
    That character is just so far detached from ANYTHING we've seen him do and i do know that much of that character was written before they even brought in Seth to play the part.

    Well, as i said i put him above Sandler for the longest time. This movie really puts him on that level though. Half the movie was "this is how gay people act, this guys acting gay, okay now laugh" at best its junior high humor, at worst its bigotry.... and even worse its an Adam Sandler flick.

    What originally looked like a comedy I'd enjoy, turned into a flick I don't want to hear about anymore. All the hype surrounding it has made me sick of it before watching it

    I actually enjoyed it more the second go-around, the first time I had no idea what to expect so was kind of apprehensive throughout. It's right up there if not better than pineapple express and similar flicks imo.

    The movie pokes fun at tabloid journalism and world ridiculous enough to use said journalists to incite a coup. Little did the filmmakers realize The World wasn't satisfied with being satirized, it had to prove that it's more ridiculous than most things you could make up.
