We get it Judd Apatow – you love your annoying wife and your mildly charming kids and their kinks and quirks and complaints and you think Paul Rudd is a handsome version of you and you need to put all of this into a movie.  Well, a funny thing happened on the way to me automatically hating this movie – I DIDN’T.  In fact, I really really liked it.  It was funny.  It’s actually the best thing Judd Apatow has done since The Critic + The Ben Stiller Show.  I dreaded seeing this movie, but now I could sit thru it 40 more times.  Mind you, it’s not thighly creative, and his kids are awful at acting, and his wife is really really really annoying, but Paul Rudd is probably the most lovable actor alive, and the movie is funny.  And that’s that!  Oh, yeah, nice try trying to revive Graham Parker’s career.  Stop trying to be the Quentin Tarantino of unappreciated music acts.  But oh, yeah, Hollywürst, please put Albert Brooks in EVERYTHING going forward.  He’s not the most lovable actor alive, but who doesn’t love Albert Brooks?  And, oh yeah, Hollywürst, take Chris O’Dowd out of EVERYTHING going forward.  Thanks!

Everything about Drive is so f%cking cool – the 80s snyth pop, the toothpicks, Albert Brooks‘ nice-guy-asshole asshole nice-guyedness, that satin scorpion jacket, the lighting in the elevator on Carey Mulligan‘s adorable face, the use of the Risky Business fontRyan Gosling‘s clenched leathered fists, Christina Hendricks 8 seconds of screen time, balancing the audio between the police scanner and the basketball game, that creepy rubber face mask, Bryan Cranston‘s limp, Nino’s delicious menu, Oscar Isaac‘s sudden fall, strippers watching hammer time, Ron Perlman‘s annoyingness properly used, handshakes, hand holding, and pretty much every single choice director Nicolas Winding Refn made to make Drive drive

What about the script?  It was aiiiiight, but this baby’s all style (AND DETAILS!!!), and has enough substance that you should substance abuse this

This is what all 5 Fast & Furiouseses should have been

Get out of your dreams and into a car to see Drive!

Drive-ing Map: thanks to Movieline, when now know where all of Gosling’s pit stops are, including where Nino/Vincenzo’s Pizzerias is/are!
