If you wanted to turn a bland PG comedy into an R-rated comedy, you'd
probably do it by adding some nudity and profanity. That appears to be
what this 2008 comedy did. The story itself could have easily been told
minus both, and either way what you get is a tame and mildly amusing flick
that's been done a million times before. For the unrated Blu-ray version,
they added 2 minutes and 6 seconds that doesn't appear to have made it any
Danny and Wheeler are two salesmen working for an energy drink company.
They give lectures at schools where they exhort the kids to abstain from
drugs, and instead fill up on the company's energy drink (although the
drugs would probably be healthier).
One day, depressed over their dead-end jobs and hopped up on energy
drinks, they wind up wrecking the company truck and destroying a statue at
a school. The judge gives them a choice: do jail time or spend 150 hours
of community service in a mentoring program. It shouldn't surprise you at
all that the kids assigned to the pair are the munchkins from hell, so it
truly is a case of the asinine leading the idiotic.
Adam Sandler, who did a similar movie, might have pulled this one off.
Unfortunately, Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott only managed to produce a
boring and predictable movie, happy ending and all, that is only worth 101
minutes of your time if the alternative is to watch grass grow
