“I assume that this is the most dildo jokes that this theater has ever seen,” Rogen said, noting that his film was showing on the same stage where Dion's act usually performed.

“Again, I haven't seen her show,” he added.

The crowd of theater owners seemed to appreciate the R-rated antics, roaring loudly at envelope-pushing scenes that find a baby putting a condom in its mouth by accident, a hungover Rose Byrne being milked by Rogen and a panoply of pot jokes.

Byrne is the movie's standout, proving that “Bridesmaids” was no fluke and creating a character that is more than just one of the interchangeable pretty faces usually called on to adorn these gross-out flicks. It's also the rare comedy that offers up more male nudity than female — both Rogen's hairy back and co-star Zac Efron‘s sculpted torso deserve their own billing.

And yes there are dildo jokes aplenty. Better get cracking Celine.
