The Verdict: How much longer can Hollywood possibly expect us to be surprised or charmed by the uncanny ability of geeky, hopeless characters portrayed by Michael Cera to awkwardly stumble into romantic success, seemingly with very little trouble? Has another actor scored more times onscreen in the past two years? Did Freddie Prinze Jr. ever have it this easy? Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist seems sort of cute, so whatever. But if you need any more proof that Judd Apatow has completely turned the world upside down, here it is: In this movie, Jay Baruchel plays a bully.
