Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –
1) It’s a treat for Team Apatow fans. Full of pop-culture references as they are playing fictionalized versions of themselves roasting each other.
2) Cameos: Rihanna, Emma Watson, Michael Cera, Channing Tatum etc.
3) Music: Gangnam Style;  final heaven scene with Backstreet Boys is a real show-stopper
4) Craig Robinson and Danny McBride stole the show.

 

Cons –
N/A
