Part of the 2013 Off-the-Wall Film Series featuring comedies starring Kansas City native Paul Rudd. Rudd shot into the comedy stratosphere playing Peter, a painfully uncool guy desperate to strike up a friendship with the hip Sydney (Jason Segal). The film was noteworthy for Rudd’s off-the-charts comedy improvisations. With Rashida Jones. This title is recommended for adult audiences only.
