    i dunno, not like i watched for the em part, but i didn't find it as bad as people made it sound like it was ..
    People definitely exaggerated their reactions just because it was Eminem, no question

    It was a decent scene

    Yeah BUT don't go in with high expectations because the film's flaws are very frustrating

    It's very encouraging. I've liked his other films, and Undeclared, and Freaks and Geeks, so my hopes are high. Also, Sandler is excellent in dramatic roles.

    Haven't seen this yet, but heard Eminem was the worst part of the whole film.

    i liked the movie .. sort of seemed to be a bit long, and it's not a typical apatow film, but it has alot of funny parts .. i liked em's scene alot though, cause when he yelled out

    'hey ray. got a fuckin problem?'

    i lost it for some reason

    FINALLY saw this last night...I agree was a lot of what Swizz said a few posts up. Overall I did like it but they could've shaved like 20 minutes off in the middle. Everyone's performance was damn near perfect.

    Em yelling at Ray Romano was funny too..I actually forgot he was in it.

    ^Good review...I'm definitely interested in the movie, but I think the length and what I've heard about the meandering final act is what's going to keep me out of the theater and waiting for the DVD.

    lol wtf are you talking about? Saw this a few nights ago, but I'm pretty positive that one of the last scenes of the movie has them making out on his car...

    Did you watch this movie? How could you say Seth Rogan was barely in it? Regardless of the film being more dramatic, Rogan's character was in a huge percentage of the scenes...

    Anyway, I don't know, I think this film came really close to being absolutely great. I loved the tone it struck and the effortless switch from comedy to drama, and there were some aspects of the movie that really hit home for me. I also think it was very well-written, communicating a lot of messages and themes without being completely heavy-handed or horribly manipulative. It also features some fantastic performances where you wouldn't expect them - Sandler, Rogan, Bana, Mann, and Schwartzmann are all uniformly excellent and give some of the best work of their respective careers, along with many other great supporting performances and an impressive array of cameos. But goddammit...why not another re-write or two? There's a point in this film where it just starts feeling directionless, as if Apatow isn't sure where he's going with it or how he wants to end it...but he'll figure it out eventually. The final act doesn't have anything wrong with it, really......other than the fact that we've already been watching this movie for an hour and a half and we're ready for a resolution. It's just unnecessarily long and this is a problem that kills the film's chances of being as effective as it could have been.

    I still recommend it if you're a fan of the actors or of Apatow's work. There's a lot of great stuff here, but I think there's enough wrong with it to significantly effect its quality.
