The new Seth Rogen R-rated mallcop comedy Observe and Report premiered at SXSW earlier tonight. The reviews will be pouring in from Austin, after the party’s come to an end later tonight (and we’ll give a roundup tomorrow), but for now lets check in with the 140-character buzz on Twitter. Seems like a lot of people thought it was hilarious, insanely quotable and somewhat shocking/awkward, but a couple people didn’t think it was that funny, and even one supposed Seth Rogen fan s tweeted about walking out. Lets go to the tweets:
lola0813: OBSERVE & REPORT report: Fucking awesome. Incredibly funny & smart.
MattDentler: Observe And Report may be the craziest studio movie of the year
thekeller: OBSERVE AND REPORT…. the hardest i have laughed since superbad. one of the funniest movies ever
jennyjacob: “Observe and Report” – not so funny. Left early and I’m a Seth Rogen fan.
jamesrocchi: Observe and Report: Travis Bickle, Mall Cop. Funny, scary, don’t quite know if you should root for Rogen.\
rejects: Alright fine. Observe and Report was dark. Not too dark, but dark. It was also very smart and very, very funny.
More after the jump.
