Classic Vaughn, Wilson and Ferrell comedy.

The plot is pretty basic for their type of comedy movies, and if you switch the Google setting with a gym you have got Dodge Ball, if you switch it with a fraternity house you have Old School (another Wilson, I know), if you switch it with a series of weddings you have got Wedding Crashers etc. It is actually all the same. The general concept works, it is fun, it is entertaining and if you like one you like them all. I like them.

My favorite performances goes to Owen Wilson for playing a bit more sensitive role than usual. The date setup was very fun but without all the slapstick humor. I also liked the performance by Rose Byrne and Dylan O’Brien.

I guess the most exciting part of this movie was seeing some of the inside of Google. I am not sure how close it is to the actual workplace, but it is not far from how imagined. I wish they had a job for me!

If you a into this comedy genre, you a in for a (classic) treat. It is fun, has got a wide series of puns and there are several strippers in it too.
