Today, is the big day, what day is it? Yes, Easter weekend, but even MORE important, the new movie by Seth Rogen, Observe and Report hits theaters today. I wonder if it will be as funny as “The Mall Cop?”
AstroChicks is excited, Boston Globe, recently asked Jacy Nova, to give a soundbyte about Rogen’s appeal. What did she say about the loveable and sexy Aries dude? Well check it out, it’s in today’s paper.
The actor-comedian was popular as a super geek. Now he’s lost weight and gotten stylish. Could this new look hurt his career?
It says something about Rogen’s appeal, to men at least, that he has long embraced his own grossness, making good by being, as one “Knocked Up” character notes, the guy “with the man-boobs.” (He has even apologized to schlubby guys for his newfound svelteness, which he blamed on his upcoming role in “The Green Hornet.”)
It would be hard to imagine Hill getting Heigl. Rogen, though, is just-good-looking-enough to be credibly romantic, a smart woman’s funny valentine.
“He’s non-threatening,” says Jacy Nova, the editor/writer of the entertainment blog astrochicks.com.
Among her readers – who tend to be college-educated, 18- to 34-year-old women – Rogen is a perennial favorite, Nova says. “They’re getting tired of the player mentality,” she says. “The nice, geeky guys are coming back in fashion.”
But if Rogen’s banter, self-effacing and rapid-fire, is essential to his appeal, it’s missing completely from “Observe and Report.” Written and directed by Jody Hill, this movie is far meaner and flashier than Apatow’s work. And it marks the first time we see Rogen playing someone other than himself – not the underachiever, but the underdog.
You heard it hear first, geeky guys are back in style, and players are out. I will take a nice nerdy guy any day over some poser Hollywood dude. A smart girl’s Valentine. Yes, I like it.
Come on girls, go hit a comic book store, or an Apple store this weekend. Prince Charming is waiting for you.
