Fargo: the Next Generation? Perhaps, if by that you mean “brisk, violent, and largely unsentimental about the depths of human folly.” It’s also the least preening of Summer 2011’s many raunch comedies, content to spend its time among the genuinely raunchy. A would-be white-trash criminal mastermind (Danny McBride) straps a bomb onto a slacker (Jesse Eisenberg) and forces him to rob a bank — all so he can hire a hit man to kill his lottery-winning jerk of a dad. With Aziz Ansari. 2011.
