Stranger Than Fiction was not dramatic! It was f**king awful, but not dramatic!

In terms of Will Ferrell, I like Step Brothers, Anchorman isn't great. One film of his I love is Everything Must Go, while it still has some comedic parts it's actually a very moving film about someone rebuilding their life and Ferrell is brilliant in it (imo)

Michael Cera has really stuck to the one type of roll, saying that he's still great in Arrested Development.
He'll be 50 and still be awkwardly moping around in a hoodie.

Again Will Ferrell is the same type of roll in most things but stranger than fiction was more dramatic.
Jim Carey used to be the same but some of his best films are probably the more serious ones.

In Superbad I just don’t like the main characters. They’re needy and entitled, and I find it just falls a long way from the humour which made The Inbetweeners so enjoyable.

As I said, I once liked it.

Certainly not defending the film itself here, but aren't the best comedies where you don't like the characters? How many of the great comedies have likeable characters? There's often one or two that are less annoying to highlight the faults of the others and that's it.
Thinking of any comedy of I have ever liked, most of the characters could be classed as needy and entitled!

Good point.

Maybe I just don’t like the “nice guy” character Cera played, and Jonah Hill was reprehensible in his arrogance. Maybe they did get to the nub of the point that people like them can still be fairly unpleasant.

oldschool has aged better than anchorman mainly I think because anchorman is played to death on the tv.i never really thought Superbad was funny...but then I found hallpass hilarious and still do..all down to personal taste.

I have only watched a couple of clips from it, supposedly the funniest bits, and it just isn't my type of thing. 

My thinking was more that if you had to choose a character to have as a friend, or to have a pint with, from comedies and sitcoms you like, it would be quite difficult and it would rarely be the main character that would be chosen.

It has to be done well though. There is some bad stuff out there and it does seem to be peddled to the type of **** willing to pay twenty quid for guacamole on toast.

I don't get it. 

Pulled Pork is 1 of the most healthiest sh*t out there but I don't think it makes me any less/more cooler if I have it or not.
