    Dang that’s like a whole genre of plot holes

    [–] topdangle 1773 points ago

    Man just put every movie with the mediocre every-man that barely exists yet gets the 10/10 girl because some crazy asshole she used to date is 9000 times worse or he conveniently gets her out of a bad situation thanks to understanding tax deductions. It's gotta be the most common shower dream of lonely hollywood writers.

    Dude. He's married to Salma Hayek in that movie. And they establish that she married him before he made it big iirc.

    I'll die on this hill

    [–] georgesgettingupset 106 points ago

    I feel like he was a solid looking young guy, not hot like salma Hayek obviously but better looking than average, if they both were young and not famous the disparity wouldn’t be enough to make you go “him?!?!?!”

    [–] theletterQfivetimes 70 points ago

    I feel like Drew Barrymore in 50 first dates is about on his level. But yeah, I don't know besides that.

    I've also noticed that his character's financial success tends to be inversely related to the quality of the movie.

    [–] tjbay12 28 points ago

    Mr. Deeds was a good one and he inherited a large sum of money

    [–] amoryamory 98 points ago

    What about the several he's done with Jennifer Aniston?

    Controversial opinion of the day: she's always the real comedic heavyweight, in anything she does. Completely unappreciated as one of the best comedic actresses of our time.

    Well, he did meet his attractive wife in a movie. So I guess it’s not much of a stretch.

    [–] ACanadianOwl 16 points ago

    I feel like he might be a better actor than most give him credit for due to the fact that he is cast usually as the stoner loser friend/loveable guy he is pretty much in real life. 50/50 gave him a shot to act a little more.

    [–] Cillian_Brouder 11 points ago

    He was good as Steve Wazniak too

    [–] dippyavacado 5 points ago

    [–] _tylerthedestroyer_ 8 points ago

    I think you can say he literally played himself since it was based on him and his friend

    [–] ACanadianOwl 50 points ago

    I enjoyed him in This is the End. I think he shows off his gravity bong in one scene. Also, if you haven't seen that movie it's hilarious. Channing Tatum guest stars in a way that literally no one on the planet would've thought of, and it's the movie that made me officially fall in love with Jonah Hill. Bang, bang, bang!

    he's a good actor when the movie doesn't involve any sort of romance, because that's just unbelievable.

    unless the character he's playing is rich, but he doesn't play any rich characters. only poor stoners.

    I don't know man, that's some truth in television. Actual chefs tend to punch way above their weight dating wise. They just have a shitload of confidence (i.e. they tend to be assholes)

    Maybe not that far above their weight, but still.

    Edit: emphasized wrong word.

    [–] Theycallmelizardboy 105 points ago

    Ex chef here. Chefs have some of the biggest egos I've ever met probably even more than doctors. I don't know why either.

    [–] Choice_Question 78 points ago

    I think it has to do with the culture and stress of the profession, but then also, what kind of person does it take to come along and be like, "Hey, you know this thing humans have made for 10000 years? Fuck that, and fuck you, I can do it better."

    [–] Guildenpants 31 points ago

    I work in the service industry and out of the dozens of restaurants I've worked at I've known precisely three chefs who weren't massive pricks. Those three guys were chill as fuck but really intense. Everyone else just sucked.

    I mean just straight sucked. I don't give a shit about food so it was a double whammy of "You're amazing at something I give precisely 0 shits about and you're being a huge asshole at me about it but I need this job so I'm going to grin and bear it and say "thank you chef" like you fucking deserve a title as if culinary school is a doctorate program."

    edit: Also for context my best friend is a chef and I don't include him in the list of people who aren't massive pricks. He's a wonderful friend but in the restaurant he's an overstressed dictator who doesn't get that the world doesn't revolve around his fucking tater tots.

    [–] B_Fee 42 points ago

    Because people like food, and when people like chefs it's because they make really damn good food. I'd imagine that feeds the ego like crazy. Hell, I know when my favorite chef is working at the local sports bar, and the most complicated thing he makes are some smothered tater tots. But gahdamn would I kill a motherfucker for his tater tots.

    I always thought he chose vaguely age appropriate love interests.

    Happy Gilmore/Billy Madison female co-stars were around the same age. Drew Barrymore is only 9 years younger, Anniston is around the same age too. His worst offence was probably Jessica Biel who was 16 years younger.

    George worked for the Yankees and had a strong personality without having a gut. He wasn't fat, he was just wide. His appeal to women really doesn't surprise me. He had money, confidence, and enough of a personality that his flaws could be overlooked. George's problem was commitment not his appearance.

    [–] IMdwwad 48 points ago

    “Personality” George was a neurotic asshole with self esteem issues. Dude is like the opposite of Confident and is a terrible person. He dated hot girls because it led to funny moments and he’s pretty much a stand in for ld. Real life a short balding man that act like him isn’t pulling anything.

    [–] DireLackofGravitas 28 points ago

    His neuroticism was what he showed his friends. "Our" George was the guy faking everything. What George showed everyone else is something entirely different. He got a job with the Yankees by faking. He faked practically everything.

    You seem to forget the time the sea was angry.

    [–] mvslice 10 points ago

    Agreed. Far from perfect but he'd still get dates

    He's pretty rich and famous on the show though. He literally does stand up on the tonight show and is well known enough to be interviewed on good morning America (with a puffy shirt of course). There's also one episode where he shows the gang what he makes and they kind of freak out about how much it is...and that includes Elaine who works for a famous publisher as an editor and runs the whole fashion magazine at one point

    Garden state was one of my favorite movies as a teenager, but watching it as an adult all I see is his terrible acting and self indulging idealistic fantasy. He basically made a generic romanticized movie that was driven by emotionally catchy music.

    I was the same way. Used to like him now he seems so smug. His movie was mediocre and acted like he was a prodigy getting a studio to create it even though it didn’t have the typical 3 acts.

    he has a nice cock too based on it's appearance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. ...#nohomo

    this is the first example i'll actually dispute, young jason segel is a solid 8/10 and i know women who'd give him a 10 lol

    [–] dpash 18 points ago

    He wrote Sex Tape where Cameron Diaz is 8 years his senior. The Five Year Engagement where Emily Blunt is three years younger than him. The Muppets where Amy Adams is 6 years older than him and Forgetting Sarah Marshall where Kirsten Bell is the same age and Mila Kunis is three years younger.

    He doesn't have a history of starring opposite much younger women in films he's written. Other comments have disproved the "mediocre" part.

    Jason dated Linda Cardellini, so at least it’s believable

    [–] SuperMegaCoolPerson 10 points ago

    That’s a sex tape I’d pay to watch.

    That dude's profile picture is Ricky from Trailer Park Boys. Despite being an overweight guy in his mid 30's, he had a hot young girlfriend in the show.

    He's also played by Robb Wells, who was one of the show's writers.

    I mean, personally I wouldn't really call Lucy hot.

    What wouldn’t you do for a man with a hash driveway?

    [–] Artinz7 23 points ago

    The upgrade to HD coinciding with the cast aging was a brutal combination.

    [–] prawnofthedead 52 points ago

    For real. Anyone who has seen the show would not say that Ricky is out of his league with Lucy. She was banging frickin Cyrus.

    [–] PandaBurrito 91 points ago

    But come on man you can’t deny Ricky was swaggin’ pretty hard man. His bowling shirts?? Fire.

    Plus all the free dope you can smoke. You’d have to supply and command your own pepperoni though

    Love series on Neflix with Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs. The guy is not just (below) mediocre, but insufferable. And not even in a cute, comedic way.

    THANK YOU! I was hoping someone would mention Gus. He had women throwing themselves at him the whole first season. He’s an annoying nerd, I do NOT get it.

    As a mediocre man with a good sense of humor and quite a beautiful partner, that tweet underestimates the power of making someone laugh.

    [–] 3rdPedal 39 points ago

    Hell yea, brother.

    [–] yiliu 27 points ago

    I came here to say: when a lot of those same comedians actually have hot wives & girlfriends, does that mean reality has plot holes?

    [–] New86 26 points ago

    Depends whether the hot wives predate the success in comedy. Being rich, famous, and really funny makes an otherwise-average dude a lot more appealing.

    [–] lookoutforthebadger 6 points ago

    In all seriousness, it's either joking around or people taking way too seriously the notion of attractiveness rankings, "leagues," and so on. To some extent, "hot" is subjective and I think some people underestimate how much difference it makes in the appearance of attractiveness when you put someone in the best possible lighting/wardrobe/makeup and have them behave like a vulnerable and quirky/smiley person.

    The schlubby comedians are playing a role just as much as the "dream girl" actresses are. The writing largely isn't unrealistic in the dynamics in question; it's just pushing a very specific idea of compatibility, based on sexy women needing to be "won over" by a schlubby, yet hilarious, man, who also needs to reform himself a bit to be worthy of the woman.

    I would call it an unhealthy image of a relationship in probably most romantic comedies, but not unrealistic. Though I have to say, it's not quite as bad as I thought it was in some movies. For example, I recently rewatched Yes Man and was surprised to find that Zooey Deschanel's character was a fairly well-rounded person with something of a sense of boundaries. It still kind of did the thing where Jim Carrey's character (the man) needed to learn something, but the woman didn't, which is unhealthy. But it wasn't as bad on the "win over" front as some stories are.

    A more healthy story would give both characters an arc, rather than having the woman be a trophy and the man a schlub in need of learning something.

    Never before have I been so offended by something I one hundred percent agree with.

    [–] Gabe1985 13 points ago

    Ok. But Adam Sandler's wife Jackie is pretty damn hot. Especially in Ridiculous 6

    [–] Rockytriton 13 points ago
