The protagonist of this film, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a down on his luck 20 something who is in a dead end job delivering pizza's. Jesse is fantastic in this role, his natural energy really lends itself to Nick's manic state of mind.
Nick's best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari), is a bit high strung, but he means well. Aziz plays the nerdy teacher really well, his nervous energy is very much needed. There are several scenes where Chet tries to help only to make things worse.
The antagonist of the film comes in the form of Dwayne (Danny McBride). The first time I saw Danny McBride was in the K-Swiss commercials as Kenny Powers and I thought he was the dumbest guy ever. After watching him in a few other movies I think I can finally appreciate his brand of humor. Which is good since he is the exact same character in this film that he always plays. His father is a huge douchbag and treats him like crap; which is what sets the entire crazy plot of the movie in motion.
Overall this was a great film, and if you are a fan of stupid guy humor then this film is for you. . If you are offended by strong language then I would recommend that you steer clear of this movie though.
I rate this film four out of five smiley Mike heads since it is very well written and never predictable. It was a bit too stupid humor though for me to rate it five smiley Mike heads.
