Role Models (2008)

Role Models
Unrated Edition





Trailer

I knew nothing about Role Models other than that there were some references to KISS in the movie. I just didn't know that these references were going to factor in big time with the plot throughout. Take away the KISS connection, I still found the movie to be quite enjoyable for what it is. But adding the KISS stuff in it definitely elevated the movie higher than it should be because at the end of the day, it's a movie that you can't take seriously.

The plot itself isn't original. You take a couple of guys going through their mid-life crisis, get busted and end up having to do community service as "Big Brothers" to a couple of kids. Along the way, everyone teaches the other something of value that ends up changing their lives for the better. A feel good story with 'dick and fart' jokes is the simplest way to describe the film. Role Models may be anchored by Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott, but the real stars are of course Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Bobb'e J. Thompson. They own this movie and they make it fun to watch, Thompson in particular. Add Elizabeth Banks and Jane Lynch and you got a movie worth checking out. Definitely worth a Rent.

What? You didn't really think for one second that I wouldn't post these scenes did you? Shame on you! Anyway, these scenes are awesome. I haven't been able to pick a fave out of the bunch yet because each one works in their own way. But I will say this, when Paul Rudd starts singing Beth, I did get misty eyed, even though I knew this scene was coming as far back as the beginning of the movie once I realized that Elizabeth Banks character was named Beth.

what's funny is for me, I'd seen this probably on tv a year after it came out...so about 2009 or so...and I wasn't as HUGELY back into KISS at the time I don't think...for sure the last 3-4 years has been a huge come back for me with the band.....it's possible even something like this movie might have put them back on my radar funny enough...but I for sure wasn't KISS crazy when I saw this like I am now.

:)

good post...super fun to see!

Paul is our age on the nose...so I am guessing he was way more connected to KISS than Seann

I would agree to that.

Also, Bobb'e J. Thompson as Gene Simmons ftw!

yeah that kid is awesome

so weird to think when I saw this I wasn't as huge into KISS....I am trying to think now, what the date was or what really got me back into it...I am sure talking with you brought it back 10 fold...but I know getting the vinyl...but before that I was downloading a lot of clips...I remember buying KISSOLOGY 3.....time flies....glad I am back with a passion for the band,

I gotta say I look at photos of Zeppelin now...and it's like...yawn.

I love seeing Page's guitar...

but I never ever realized seriously how **** ballsy Gene was breathing fire all these years...I was looking at a ton of photos of him breathing fire.

that dude is CRAZY.

seriously...that is some deadly ass sh*t right there...and the blood...not dangerous...but man how shocking and disturbing...it's easy to take it all for granted.  I don't anymore, they worked for it.

funny story...something I read said about a year in Paul was complaining to the management (with Gene there) that Gene was showboating and "overacting" on stage...he said when people would tape the band of take photos, it would always be of Gene.

gene said flat out "I think you are under acting"

and thus...he won the argument management agreed, and Paul didn't have a leg to stand on....and we have Paul shaking his ass and dancing etc now.

I had heard the same statement years ago, but I do believe that it was also in the book your loaned me as well and that may be where you heard it first.

you're right it was the book.

I read it here and there...just open a page and read a few paragraphs.

that was it...2 days back I'd read that/

Gene was right though...why should he hold back...seriously...just look at him breathing fire photos...it's **** insane what that guy did 250 nights a year...for lets see...how many tours??

wow.

No one else in the band had the balls to step up when it was asked of them who wanted to learn how to breath fire. Gene steps up, he can do whatever the f*ck he wants as he earned that right.

I honestly can't believe how many times he's done it...it amazing he doesn't have mouth cancer or lung cancer etc.....I can't imagine all that toxic **** being in your mouth night after night, it's so gnarly.

or that he's hasn't seriously hurt himself, he's lucky he doesn't drink or do drugs...sobriety clearly helped him maintain what he does over the years.
