Early Twitter Buzz: Observe And Report

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:

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.

johnnymeatworth: Observe And Report is a work of f***ing genius. Seth Rogen is a Travis Bickle for our times. Pass it on.

evilry: Observe & Report is funny, awkward & shocking at times; but also a bit hyperbolic. Good not great, but the ending is one to end all.
