Watching now, just started
Watched this when I got up this morning. I really loved it a lot. So many cameos. David Wain does no wrong.
Will Forte nailed it as Doug Kenney
Oh man, totally forgot about this. Excited to watch tonight
This was fine
Yeah this was okay. I enjoyed it but probably won’t watch it again.
Really excited to watch this!
Sad to see lukewarm responses. A new Wain film is always something to look forward to, and the subject matter of this one had me even more intrigued. I'll still probably watch it this weekend, but I'm bummed there's not more enthusiasm for it.
I really liked it, but it feels very rushed, it's kind of ugly (everything is so bright and fake looking) and a lot of the impersonations are pretty off (I had to keep reminding myself that McHale was playing Chevy Chase). Still, it's insane how many people are in this movie and it's a lot of fun (even while depressing)
This was immensely enjoyable! Forte was really really great in this and really loved how Wain got
Paul Rudd in this.
"You play tennis?"
Definitely missed that. Who was he?
He was in the high school yearbook. He was "the nobody"
Hahah had to pause it and google Paul Rudd’s yearbook pictures at that point. Thought that was awesome too.
I enjoyed this. I bit more dramatic than I thought it would be, but it was a good deal of fun.
Yeah I liked this a lot, thought the cast was great, enjoyed the scope of everything covered, etc. It may not be the ideal biopic in a sense, but it was definitely interesting and definitely a fun watch
I wasn’t too into this except the narrative structure and meta parts. Joel McHale’s Chevy was pretty great, though.
This was enjoyable in part because of the killer cast. I’m a stickler for biopics being as accurate as possible but at least this took a meta approach by addressing actors not looking like their real-life counterparts. McHale at least nailed Chevy’s delivery as long as I pictured a younger Chevy in the scenes. Casting Martin Mull as an older Doug was interesting in order to put the legacy of the magazine into perspective. I agree in saying this feels rushed, as it seems the documentary came out so soon ago.
I thought Jon Daly did a great Bill Murray
I thought the Murray monologue with the piano was great and pretty close, but other than that I just saw Daly with a mustache. I like that they made the joke that none of the actors really look like the people they are portraying, but I was never really immersed.
The ridiculous wigs/bright lightning just kind of spoiled it. I thought Domnhall was great but I couldn't get past his ridiculous fake hair
Domnhall easily the best part of this movie
I didn't know that was Domnhall until I looked it up after the movie, so I'll consider that a success.
Same here. Plus I was totally unfamiliar of Beard before the movie
Netflix's new National Lampoon movie has an extremely subtle Mad Men crossover
I thought this was enjoyable, not as funny as I was expecting though.
Got about half way through this last night. Really enjoyed what I saw. The fourth wall stuff was great.
