I've seen Observe and Report, that "other" mall cop comedy coming out this Friday, and let me tell you, it's got some serious balls... In fact, I'm surprised Warner Bros. even let Seth Rogen and Foot Fist Way director Jody Hill make a movie like this. But when you allow funny people to take chances, more often than not it turns into comedy gold - which is exactly what happened here. Even if co-star Anna Faris wasn't so sure when they were filming.
There's a scene in Observe and Report where loser mall cop Ronnie Barnhardt (Rogen) takes the department store makeup girl, Brandi (Faris), out on a date. Twelve (or twenty) tequila shots later and they're back at her place for a decidedly unsexy sex scene. Faris told Starpulse.com, "Jody [Hill] was like, 'Okay, you guys are having sex and you're going to have some vomit come out of your mouth, you're passed out and your boobs are jiggling all over.' I was comforted by the studio. I was like, there's no way [they'll let this slide]. There's no way. I'll do it, sure, because I don't want to be a stick in the mud but there's no way this is going to make it in the movie."
Well, it did - and now that she's seen it, Anna is happy she agreed to take the scene all the way: "I'm grateful, I'm grateful... I'm grateful that the movie is unapologetic."
Check out Observe and Report in theaters this Friday and see what she means.
