Despite being known for as “Judd Apatow’s five-act movie,” Rogen’s performance is nothing short of genuine.  As an up-and-coming comic trying to make ends meet by working at a mall deli with RZA, Rogen’s trademark humor came out in Ira’s standup, but the real performance was when Ira went back to face real life.  We all felt bad for Ira as he tried to start a new relationship, butted heads with his roommates and fell quickly out of favor with super star George Newman (Adam Sandler).
