|1:55||I love, love, love setting new traditions.|
|4:07||Whimsical but determined, that’s a hard look to pull off.|
|7:53||How not to talk to pregnant people.|

|12:55||“It’s a concept album.” “What’s the concept?” “I’m still conceptualising that part.”|
|17:34||I can totally sympathise with ordering off the internet and not knowing what size of thing you’re getting. Not so much on the drug side of things though.|
|24:10||Can you party to Wrecking Ball?|
|34:32||The drug dealer said they’d be back. Psychic drug dealer.|

I’m not a huge stoner movie fan, it’s just not something I have reference to, and you know that’s exactly what you’re getting when Seth Rogan teams up with some buddies for one final night out. It was better than I thought it was going to be, although still a bit of a hot mess. The supernatural angle was only slightly there which made it more irritating than insightful, and I really feel like he could have said that Miley 90% forced him to propose which might have calmed her down a bit. Miley was by far the best thing in it. The less said about JF the better.
BUT I thought Jillian Bell’s character was awesome - supportive, enabling, understanding. They make a great couple.
