I really wasn’t sure what to expect going into Observe and Report. I knew the director, Jody Hill, had something to do with Eastbound and Down, which what little I’ve seen, I think is hilarious. Certainly, I did not expect a Seth Rogen comedy to be so dark….or deeply disturbing.
Don’t get me wrong, there were some funny moments, plus the fact that Hill’s playing around with realities was interesting, fairly unique, and a bit more sophisticated than what I was expecting. But overall, the whole thing didn’t gel for me, and in the end, I was left feeling disgusted with the humanity portrayed on the screen as well as the brand I witnessed in the theatre itself.
