Scott is a good actor who is best known for playing Stifler, the cocky friend everyone loved to hate in the American Pie movies. He is also funny in many different ways. Manny, the grumpy mammoth, Sid, the fast-talking sloth, and Diego, the clever saber-toothed tiger, are in danger of losing their home because of global warming. This funny cartoon movie has highs and lows, thrills and spills, laughs and adventures.
1. Ice Age: Continental Drift (2001)
The fourth installment of the Ice Age franchise is a delightful adventure that captures audiences of all ages. The film features stunning visuals and lovable characters.
After Manny, Sid, Diego and their friends accidentally bury Scrat’s acorn in continental drift, the Earth begins to break apart. This strands Manny’s family, including his mate Ellie and daughter Peaches, along with Granny and the rest of the herd on moving chunks of ice.
Despite having a few plot holes, Ice Age: Continental Drift is still a hilarious movie that features a good cast. It also showcases some impressive computer animation. The prehistoric world is brought to life through the details in each frame. The animation has come a long way since the first Ice Age movie ten years ago. The lookmovie film is a must-see for any fan of the series or Seann William Scott.
2. The Secret Life of Pets (2001)
In a bustling Manhattan apartment building, after the humans on two legs head to work and school, their pets start their own day. It involves hanging out with their buddies, trading humiliating stories about their owners and auditioning adorable looks for better snacks.
Louis C.K. and Eric Stonestreet voice Max and Duke, respectively, a pair of neurotic terrier rescues whose lives are upended when Katie brings home a giant Newfoundland dog named Duke. Bobby Moynihan lent his Saturday Night Live-tested comedy chops to Mel, a pug, while Dana Carvey and Tara Strong also voiced characters.
The movie is basically Toy Story with dogs, but it delivers laughs and heart in just the right amounts. Alexandre Desplat scored the film’s music. The movie is the first in Illumination Entertainment’s “Pets” franchise. The sequel hits theaters this summer.
3. The Hangover (2007)
After the success of the first movie, The Hangover Part II took us back into Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug’s world of drunken debauchery. This time the gang takes it to Thailand, where things are bound to get wilder than ever before.
While the plot may be a retread, the jokes are still fresh and hilarious. The film also pushes the envelope in terms of its level of raunchiness. The jokes are darker and more extreme, while the scenes in Bangkok are much more outrageous than in Las Vegas.
It’s a shame that this movie wasn’t as good as the first one, but the cast really came through with another great performance. Stifler is the standout character in this one, as always. He is one of the most obnoxious, over-the-top characters in comedy history. It’s no wonder he has a cult following.
4. The Hangover Part II (2011)
The Hangover Part II is much like the first movie but with more drunken debauchery. There are a few laughs to be had but the film doesn’t do enough with its cast or story to keep audiences interested.
Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott star in this comedy about two energy drink salesmen that find themselves with 150 hours of community service to complete. They are paired together to work at Sturdy Wings which is a big brother/big sister program for children in need.
The chemistry between Cooper, Helms, and Galifianakis (and to some extent Ken Jeong) is a lot of the reason that this sequel works. They all work well together and bring their A-game to this one. What this movie lacks is heart, though. Most of the characters are jerks and it’s hard to root for them.
5. Dude Where’s My Car (2001)
One of those sloppy, raunchy comedies that’s supposed to appeal to teenagers. Jesse (Ashton Kutcher from That ’70s Show) and Chester (Seann William Scott from American Pie) are dimwitted party animals who wake up one morning with no memory of what they did the night before.
They try to retrace their steps, but along the way they encounter burn out beat jocks, hot alien chicks and a pack of killer ostriches. Plus they have to score “special treats” for their ticked off twin girlfriends.
The DVD extras include a raucous commentary track featuring director Danny Leiner and stars Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott. The trio have a good time cracking jokes about the movie and their experience making it. Seven extended scenes are also included as a supplemental feature. A busy 5.1 soundtrack enhances the on-screen humor.
