So like I said, it's been a good year for comedy, and with this, Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder, you can give some of the credit to Danny McBride. He sort of seems like the indie Will Ferrell now, and is quickly becoming an MVP on the comedy scene. You can count me in as a fan now, and I'm looking forward to whatever he does next.
The Foot Fist Way isn't as great as Patton Oswalt would like you to believe, but it's pretty funny, McBride is incredible, and it includes violence towards children and old people, so it's definitely worth seeing. This movie is so bitter and hateful that Roger Ebert couldn't give it a positive review despire admitting that it was funny. If you have a dark sense of humor and don't mind unabashed misanthropy, this is your movie. If nothing else, it's worth it to see a man break up with his wife by pissing on his wedding ring.
