Role Models

David Wain's critically lauded comedy stars Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott as a pair of irresponsible salesmen who find themselves acting as very unlikely role models for two wayward kids.

Danny (Rudd) and Wheeler (Scott) make their living promoting a high-energy drink to pupils as a wholesome alternative to drugs. The job fits perfectly with uber-slacker Wheeler's rock'n'roll lifestyle, while cynical Danny, whose focus is his girlfriend Beth (Elizabeth Banks), feels underused and that his life is dribbling away.

However, neither man can find the motivation to grab life by the scruff - until, one day, they crash their truck and are given the choice between jail or community service.

They choose the latter, becoming mentors to a 10-year-old breast-obsessed lad called Ronnie (Bobb'e J Thompson) and teenage roleplay gamer Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who plays McLovin in Superbad).

It's difficult to tell whose behaviour is worse, the children or the 'adults', but a hilarious battle of wills ensues, which will have a meaningful outcome for each of the quartet...
