Ok folks do you need another reason to love Rainn Wilson? Dwight is my alltime favorite character on The Office for being the most ridiculous, intense worst co-woker ever. He was also all too good in season 4 of Six Feet Under as the creepy mortician Arthur. So I was dancing the happy dance when The Rocker arrived Monday from Netflix.
I had high hopes for this over the top 80s metal band parody staring some of my favorites from recent sitcoms: Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm), even Howard Hessman from WKRP was in this movie!
Aside from the many dick and fart jokes and the over the top outfits that always seemed to be the most unflattering, channeling Will Ferrel's mojo found the movie was a bit of a letdown. We wound up watching Jim Gaffigan's latest standup we had Tivoed afterwards and THAT was way too funny so the night was not a total loss.
My favorite line referencing why people go to Waffle House, "it's 2 am, but it's not too late to make one more major mistake tonight... the sign with it's burned out letters looks like a ransom note". HOTPOCKET!!!!
