Most — nearly all, in fact — of this video from the “Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen“ is pretty funny.
It starts off as a spot-on parody of “Apocalypse Now,” which starred Sheen’s father, Martin, and includes a cameo from dad as well. But there’s one line from Martin Sheen, about 35 seconds in, where the line between comedy and real life gets a little too smudged.
After Martin admonishes his son to get out of the pool and watch his face and chases a couple girls away (still funny), he turns partly away from the camera, shakes his head and says, “When will this ever end?” Aaand, we’re out of the moment and thinking about Charlie Sheen’s problems, and we’re guessing that’s not where Comedy Central wants us to be.
