More than four decades have passed since Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong appeared in a cloud of smoke on the national stage taking their irreverent, satirical, counterculture, marijuana-addled lifestyle to audiences everywhere.
In most romantic dramas or comedies, the audience can be fairly certain the two leads will end up together happily ever after. That’s not the case in Like Crazy, which is one of the more untraditional love stories I’ve seen in a while.
When I saw the previews for Our Idiot Brother, I immediately wondered if Paul Rudd was envious that his co-star Steve Carell got to be the “schumck” in Dinner for Schmucks while Rudd played it straight. I guess Rudd got the opportunity he was waiting for as Ned in Our Idiot Brother.
