Coffee Town (2013)
Starring: Glenn Howerton, Steve Little, Ben Schwartz, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Groban, Josh Perry
Directed by: Brad Copeland (Coffee Town only)
Synopsis: A lovable misfit uses a coffee shop as his office, but when it’s in danger of turning into a bar he enlists the aid of his lovable misfits friends to foil the company’s plans.
Best part: Any movie that pays tribute to the BMX dance scene in Rad is aces in my book.
Worst part: The whole break-in of Coffee Town seemed a bit unnecessary when they could have accomplished what they were setting out to do by just throwing bricks through the windows and spraying graffiti on the building.
Chad: “You wanna be straight, shove it up another guy’s ass. That’s straight.“
Nudity: Josh Groban’s balls.
Overall: Nice little comedy with this the first attempt at making a movie from the people at College Humor. It basically plays kind of like an extended episode of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, a comparison that can’t be helped because of Dennis Reynolds being the lead, but that’s a good thing. It’s sharply written, with consistently funny scenes, likeable characters, Adrianne Palicki in workout clothes, coffee, Newport menthols, crime, a gunshot wound, BMX, chocolate milk and Josh Perry, an actor with Down Syndrome who steals the show, like all actors with Down Syndrome do because they are awesome. If you’re a fan of Always Sunny (and if not, why not?) check it out.
Score: 7.5 laptop lap burns (out of 10)
