New in Theatres · March 16, 2012

Raunchy R-rated comedies are taking on ‘The Lorax‘ this weekend. Though it could prove to be poor scheduling since the target audience will most likely be out getting hammered in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day! But, hey, there’s still Friday night.

But, if you’re looking for a comedy that doesn’t involve high school or subtitles, there is Jason Segel’s flick about a sweet 30-year-old stoner who can’t get his shit together and still lives with his mother .

But, wait! There’s more! If you want some campy cheeseball movie in the “so bad it’s good” genre, the limited releases offer up some Nic Cage and a movie with a premise along the lines of  “Thunderdome meets Dance Dance Revolution”! Friggin Awesome!!

They thought the streets were mean. Then they went back to high school.
