The Era of Cera

Love him or hate him, it appears George Michael Bluth is here to stay.

The boys of Super Bad, and the Year One poster

and finally George Michael himself.

So what is it about Cera that keeps us coming back for more or in some cases, begging for less?

The title is awesome! Cera is so awkwardly cute.

What I like about Michael Cera is that, whatever it is he's doing, it never really feels like acting. On the downside, there's a certain sameness to everything, but on the upside, I'm so charmed by him that it doesn't really matter that I'm seeing the same kind of thing over and over again.

Arrested Development - great. Superbad - great. Juno - great, but comeon kid, show some range.

He's got about three films left before it officially wears thin and people will be screaming for his head.

I love Cera. He could stretch a bit, but you have to wonder if some of that isn't him being typecast more than a lack of range. I can just hear a director/producer saying. "Different can be good, but I love your schtick. Can you give me that? Trust me, no one will EVER get tired of it!"

He was the #1 reason I'd even consider seeing Year One.

@Reel Whore, I was really excited to see Year One till I started reading the reviews, and then I lost my drive... I still kind of want to see it though.

Year One has its cute Michael Cera moments but it's definitely a guy flick with all the gross-out humor.

Thank goodness for the second-run theater here. I'll give this about two more weeks in major theaters and then I can catch it there for $1.50. I'm catching a lot of this summer's movies there due more to quality than cost.
