Ever since I heard about it, I’ve been itching to see it. The five of us showed up fairly early (circa 6:45PM for a 7:30PM show), and they were turning people away at the door. As happens with these advance screenings, they run out of room and not everyone who has a ticket can get in.
Luckily, I talked with Andy about this earlier in the morning, and Justin chatted with someone right before we left… and we were able to have some seats reserved for us. This is one of those fantastic perks that go along with working for a radio station.
All in all, a good movie. Not as great as I had hoped it would be, but worth seeing. In my mind, I was expecting to be laughing hysterically, non-stop for two hours. Which I guess… is a pretty unreasonable thing to expect out of a movie. But the first time I saw that South Park clip with someone else in the room… I had tears in my eyes.
Definitely some great moments, and some incredibly funny people. As much as it was vulgar and obscene, I’d argue that the movie offered up as much insight into comedians, and how they approach comedy.
Really huge thanks out to Andy and Anthony, who hooked us up with these tickets. We really get treated well and taken care of, with the work perks. Thanks, guys!
