This was a terrible discussion of a terrible movie. I'm assuming that they're all white, because this is whitest, most juvenile throw-back film one could possibly make. The last gasp of a (thankfully) dying genre.

No. Mainly the people that don't like him are uptight.

Saw the film and was really, really disappointed. A great cast and a funny basic story , then they turned it over to a bunch of 19 year frat boys from UCLA. Hard to enjoy a film that flaunts it's vulgarity like a badge of honor.

I agree he's talented, but deserves being made fun of. 'What comes around, goes around' type of thing.

I think Seth is hysterically funny, very talented, intelligent and creative. Having graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, (RISD) the finest art school in America, makes him even more impressive.

He pokes fun at literally everybody. Ergo, should be able to handle it when it comes back at him.

Even though I agree with the Cosmos comment, I think he should stick to science. I find his comedy lazy and repetitive. But I guess what more can you expect from a damn manatee

He gave us the reboot of Cosmos...all is forgiven...

I find none of his work offensive, only ridiculously funny. He is probably the biggest and the funniest mainstream comic genius we have today, and his body of work is nothing short of pure gold. He picks on people, mostly religions and the religious, and they hate him because they probably feel they are the only ones allowed to pick on others. This was, to me, the funniest movie in decades!
