Danny (Paul Rudd) and Wheeler (Seann William Scott) are two thirty-something best friends who market energy drinks to high schoolers, promoting the beverages as a faux legal high.  When the duo witnesses their promotional vehicle being towed, they attempt to break it free, damaging the tow truck and almost injuring a police officer in the process.

As punishment Wheeler and Danny are forced to mentor teenagers Ronnie (Bobb'e J. Thompson) and Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), a trash-talking street kid and role-playing obsessed nerd respectively.  Hilarity ensues as the men struggle to bond with the boys -- or else endure a thirty-day jail sentence.

Role Models was nominated for an MTV Movie Award and a Teen Choice Award.  The picture earned $92 million at the box office, tripling its $28 million budget.
