Although it’s not for everybody, there’s a significant amount of charm running through this harmlessly juvenile comedy. As he would later prove with “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Andy Samberg proves to be a charismatic, generous leading man, willing and able to cede the spotlight to his equally talented co-stars, who each manage to have a number of stand-out moments. As a matter of fact, the cast is largely why so much of this movie works: There seems to be a lot of natural rhythm and warmth among the players that it establishes a sense of trust between the movie and its audience. Among a number of laugh-out-loud moments, there’s a particularly hilarious scene set to John Farnham’s “You’re the Voice” that begs to be watched over and over.
