Role Models is a solid comedy. Two men take on a "big brother" assignment, as a plea bargain, to avoid going to jail. Foul language abounds, but it is appropriate and serves well as a comedic vehicle. This is a story of friendship, redemption, family and identity. The characters are well developed and consistent. I'm surprised at how much I liked this movie. The trailers do not do it justice. Good solid performances, a strong script and many laugh-out-loud moments for me. (not for the prissy) Well done.

Can I take my 14 and 12 year old boys to this one? Or will that make me a bad mama?
Franki~Oooo tough call. Depends on how you handle vulgar language in your household. When my kids were that age, I'd let them know ahead of time that it's OK to laugh at swearing and sex jokes, but don't repeat them in "polite company" aka, little kids, Grandma and your teachers. The message of positive self image and support is strong in this movie.
That's good news! Maybe I'll take them. In our household, vulgar language is something that mom does, but kids don't cuz mom can't get suspended from school or grounded. ;)
Franki~Glad to help, enjoy!!
