Director: David Wain

Running Time: 99 mins

Role Models is an American film about two travelling energy drink salesman who end up driving into a protected statue, and being forced to do community service by looking after some young children.

Although this was a totally typical comedy movie, that was very predictable and everything, it was still very enjoyable! I loved almost every single character, as it seemed that this entire world that these people lived in was the most dysfunctional ever.

I also found the story of the fake kingdoms and countries absolutely hilarious, and the king of the country, Mr Chow from The Hangover, was fantastically funny, especially how he tried to pretend that a local burger joint was his own palace.

It may seem like a bit of a cliché, but the little kid, Ronny, who just swears his head off and acts like he’s about 17 was one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, and in some scenes, I was nearly falling off my chair with laughter.

Overall, I’ll give this 7.3, because it was very funny and entertaining for me to watch, however the story was very predictable and normal.
