No…Travis Bickle: Mall Cop.

Because the first time I saw this trailer I kept getting the feeling that this was supposed to be Taxi Driver redone as a Judd Apatow-style comedy.

Maybe that’s a sign I need to get out more…

“Because the first time I saw this trailer I kept getting the feeling that this was supposed to be Taxi Driver redone as a Judd Apatow-style comedy.”

According to Seth Rogen on The Daily Show last night, that’s exactly what it was. Or, at least, how he saw it: a mall security guard who really thinks he represents goodness and justice.

Things that made me laugh:

The mime shotgun and the lady wincing. Very Reno 911.

Things that made me sneer in derision:,

The way Rogan talks: that arrogant, low, FOR JUSTICE! way of speaking. Man, would that get annoying for 2 hours. Dude, it’s funny where appropriate, but not all the damn time.

The flasher at the beginning and the over-the-top reactions from the women about *gasp* A PENIS!! EEK! Shows a middle school mentality. I really hope he’s not the only “villian” because then I would have to wax philosophical about how finally, the antagonist of one of these hetero-male-centric comedies is now, in fact, an actual penis (gay!). O, the unfortunate implications.

The rape jokes directed at the blonde (here and in another trailer). She’s oh-so-rapeable.

The blonde. Good lord. She wasn’t even funny. Here’s the perfect woman, guys: super-hot, dumb, easily frightened. She gets shitfaced on a first date, leaving her vulnerable for some fun (the RAEP again! Oh, you guys, HAHAHA.).
