Rent-a-cop Ronnie Barnhardt (Seth Rogen) is tasked with keeping the peace at the Forest Ridge Mall, but when a flasher strikes, Ronnie has no gun and no power to stop the exhibitionist. A rivalry ensues when the police send in Det. Harrison (Ray Liotta) to crack the case. Can Ronnie bring the flasher to justice before the well-armed Harrison does? Anna Faris also stars in this darkly comic effort from writer-director Jody Hill.
This movie is a dark comedy. It is Taxi Driver meeting The Cable Guy. Seth Rogan plays a true sociopath. You feel sorry for him one moment and the next he is just scary. With the exception of the woman who serves coffee and one police officer in the background, there is not a likeable character in this movie. I can not recommend this movie to anyone except if you enjoyed both Taxi Driver and The Cable Guy. Like I said it is a dark comedy. I liked it because if validated my decision years ago to stay far away from these people. I am giving it a solid 3 stars.
