Fuckin' Eminem… He just had to inspire Sandler to prolong the film.
I wouldn't say that the Marin County detour is unnecessary, but 1. an Apatow family variety hour is and 2. Funny People is at heart a bromance between Sandler and Rogen. Sandler's ex and her husband are character development devices, not characters who need to be developed.
PS… Judd did shorten it. I saw a three hour, forty five minute version. [source]
That's 25 minutes longer than The Godfather: Part II.
I'm guessing Judd shortened Rogen's conflict with Jonah Hill and his relationship with the girl from Parks and Recreation.
» Ken Jeong appeared in three of the six trailers that preceded the film.
» MySpace? Really?
» Best shirt: Rogen's Zankou Chicken one.
» Salvatore Romano! Rachel Menken!
» Eric Bana's head is distractingly small.
