Jason watches THE NIGHT BEFORE

Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, and Joseph Godon-Levitt made a Christmas drug comedy that doesn't know if it wants to shock and amuse or if it wants to tug at your heart strings. Ultimately it does a little bit of both, and packs in a ton of celebrity cameos, tacks it to a tenuous "A Christmas Carol" based plot, and never really commits to any one tone. It was mostly fun, but ultimately forgettable. Unless it's secretly one of those movies you can watch over and over again and find all the little hidden nuances. It's quite possible the team behind it was smart enough to do that, but for now I'm not sensing this as being a film I'll have much desire to revisit.
