In the last decade, no one wears the “endearingly lost and confused” mantle like Seth Rogen. The fuzzy view goes somewhere between “I do not want any trouble, boy” and “I do not know how I am actually here”; in 2015, Rogen is on screen as an avatar for you. Overgrown human child. That’s Stoner Stoner’s Peter Pan. If you’ve started enjoying the window before, you’ll probably enjoy most of The Night Before. Or Joseph Gordon-Levitt is here and doing things.
As in all films written or produced by Rogen and partner Evan Goldberg, The Night Before is gathering around serious relationships blended with substance-fueled escape plaques.
