Incredible supporting performances that deserved better.

Okay, so here's the thing -- I watched this film over a week ago, and I'm still thinking about it. Why? Because I get riled up over films that are SO CLOSE to being good, but just... aren't.

The Late Bloomer definitely falls into this category. There are bits of dialogue and interactions between characters which are genuinely top-notch comedy, and the supporting cast put in one of the best ensemble performances I've seen in ages. Seriously. Kumail Nanjiani in particular is fantastic, and J.K. Simmons continues to be the best supporting actor in Hollywood right now.

Buuuuuut... there are six writing credits listed, and it's likely that therein lies the problem. The moments of brilliance are almost completely overshadowed by other bits of writing which are, at best, trite, and at worst completely cringe-worthy. The last twenty minutes or so of the film legitimately don't even make sense, and are among the worst I've seen all year. It really feels like something that was cobbled together from different people who had different ideas of what the film should be, and maybe some of those people were... incorrect.

So yeah, I wish this film was as good as it could have been. A lot of inspired performances and great dialogue that deserved better than what this ends up being.

I didn't laugh once...and it doesn't take much to make me laugh.

First of all I love "stupid" sort of funny stoner types of movies. I can appreciate raunchy sort of humor. The problem with this movie is it just doesn't deliver. I'm a Kevin Pollak fan... and I think he was going for some sort of "American Pie" type of humor here...but it just misses the mark. Lot's of potential and a pretty good premise but just failed to make me actually laugh. I thought the lead actor was sort of meh in it...he did an OK job but wasn't very likable.... and had they done a few things differently I think it could've been funny. Some people probably will say this movie would only be funny to a certain type of person...but I'm that type of person...and it literally didn't even induce a smile. It's not that it wasn't well acted...because it was (kinda)...but they just didn't push the envelope far enough with this one. This is one movie that could've really used some extra raunch to make it funny. The relationship between the main character and his friends doesn't have any chemistry...the guy who is supposed to be the comic relief is just...not funny.... there is nobody likable in this film and that's sort of a problem in a movie where you're supposed to be pulling for the lovable loser...he isn't lovable... he is most certainly a loser...but ...I dunno this movie had a cool enough premise to be funny...they just failed miserably at making it funny in the slightest. Waste of a good cast. :-/

Fell for the trailer. Don't let the trailer rob you.

Epic failure. The movie's premise had so much potential. I cringe just thinking how the end result turned out to be.

If you are looking for a comedy, this is not it. I didn't laugh once the entire movie. Poor performances, except for J.K Simmons, lame and generic screenplay. Jokes are not funny. This movie is trash. Please do not watch it. Wish I could give a zero, no option on this site though. Not exaggerating.

I have noticed a common trend in movies like this, Neighbors 2, Bad Moms, Horrible Bosses 2, Mike and David Need Wedding Dates, is that they rely heavily on dick jokes, overuse cringe comedy, awkward situations and characters, seriously who are the writers and directors, I want to throw tomatoes at them. Crap after crap after crap. This movie was the last straw.

Seriously guys, this is garbage. I regret watching this. Only good thing about this movie is J.K Simmons, everything else is trash.
