Probably helps that he gets shot in the face in it too, lol. But yeah he is kind of funny in it and a bit different. More like a clueless airheaded fellow unlike most roles he played.
Haven't seen American Beauty or Fight Club in a really long time but I liked both. Both are maybe a bit pretentious and trying hard to be "deep" but both seem entertaining either way as movies as far as I remember. Theyre like mid life crisis movies or something.
