I’ve got a pretty huge problem with this and I’m going to tell you what it is. Sure, Aziz is in it, and Aziz is very funny. It’s got Jesse Eisenberg, who is a very talented and charming young actor with a bright career ahead of him. Danny McBride: enough said. Nick Swardson has spent years building a devoted fan-base and is due to start getting larger roles in bigger movies. It was directed by Reuben Fleischer, who made Zombieland and is making a name for himself as one of the more unique and original comic directors of his generation. It was written by first-time screenwriter Michael Diliberti, and that must be very exciting for him, his first major motion picture packed with stars! But here is my problem: NO MENTION WHATSOEVER OF HOW DELICIOUS PIZZA IS? Pizza is basically the fifth character in the movie. I mean, here you have pizza as the centerpiece of the whole thing–it even provides the cute reference for the title–and yet not a single person turns to the camera and says “Hey! You know what? Pizza is delicious!”
Actually, maybe this is a good thing, because truth be told, I am tired of how so many movie trailers give away all the good pizza stuff right in the trailer and then you see the movie and you’re like, ugh, aren’t there going to be ANY pizza surprises? PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA!
