Four Lions Movie Review

Surely to be one of the more controversial movies of the year, especially in this Tea Party-led society we suddenly live in, Four Lions is about four British Muslims who, disillusioned with the western world, decide they’re going to wage jihad against their country. In other words, they’re going to blow some sh*t up. Oh, […]

She’s Out of My League Movie Review

There’s unfunny, and then there’s painfully unfunny, and the new R-rated romantic comedy She’s Out of My League falls somewhere between the two. A derivative of Knocked Up, about an awkward young man who finds himself with a much hotter girlfriend, the movie is two hours worth of forced dialogue and flat jokes. Stay away. […]

Nurse Jackie: Season One DVD Review

For years, HBO was the preeminent leader of high-quality television. No other station, and especially no other premium station, consistently produced expertly done and engaging shows the way they did. Think Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Deadwood, Big Love, Entourage and Carnivale. These are some of the best shows ever made, and are considered as […]

The Hangover Movie Review + Repeat Box Office Winner

The Hangover repeated its dominance at the box office this weekend, taking in another $33.4 million; the R-rated comedy is now on pace to rake in approximately $175 million, against a budget of $25-$35 million. The people behind Land of the Lost (biggest flop of the year?) and Terminator Salvation are shaking their heads in […]

Taking Woodstock Movie Trailer

Taking Woodstock comes to limited theaters on August 14, 2009, and looks like it could be an enjoyable late-summer event. A comedy about the unsuspecting hosts of the famed Woodstock event, the movie stars some recognizable-but-not-well-known actors, though stand-outs include Emile Hirsch and Imelda Staunton. Watch the Taking Woodstock movie trailer here:

Mike Judge’s Extract Movie Trailer!

Mike Judge is behind a little movie you may have heard of called Office Space, which can only be described as one of the biggest cult film I can imagine. If you work in an office, you’ve probably seen, liked and related to the movie. Needless to say, Mike Judge has some comedic clout…

Sam Mendes’ Away We Go Movie Trailer

Watch the funny new movie trailer for Away We Go, from director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Revolutionary Road). The film is a notable change from Mendes’ other bodies of work as it is, in fact, a comedy and presumably doesn’t include one of the main characters dying at the end. Watch the […]

Movie Trailer Review: The Great Buck Howard

I just watched the two-and-a-half-minute movie trailer for The Great Buck Howard, which stars Colin Hanks and John Malkovich, with a guest appearance by Colin’s father, the little-known actor named Tom Hanks. The movie is about a washed-up performer who is still living in his glory years until his new, youthful manager helps get him […]

Soul Men Movie Review

Soul Men comes to DVD next Tuesday, and of three big names in the film – Bernie Mac, Samuel L. Jackson and Isaac Hayes – only Jackson lived to see this comedy released to theaters. I’m not sure that Jackson was the lucky one. After all, Jackson most likely attended the premiere, which means that […]

Zack and Miri Make a Porno DVD Review

It’s funny: of all the successful comedies of the year, one of the funniest, which combined the likes of Seth Rogen with the director who made his kind of comedy possible in the first place – Kevin Smith – flopped. One shouldn’t have been surprised, given that Kevin Smith has hardly been a box office […]

Kristin Bell Takes Her Shirt Off in Fanboys

The long-delayed Fanboys finally comes to theaters next Friday, and here are a few video clips recently provided by the studio. The first one features Kristin Bell taking her shirt off… sort of.

The 10 Best Comedies of 2008

2008 was a good year for comedies, and this coming from a guy who rates comedies as the least desirable genre. I actually do really enjoy comedies, but I like action flicks and depressing dramas much, much more. But in the absence of really great dramas, this genre rose up to truly deliver…. In Bruges […]

The Green Hornet… A comedy?

Fans were already apprehensive with the casting of Seth Rogen as The Green Hornet, one of the world’s oldest superheroes, and now they have a reason to be downright upset. With the hiring of director Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer), it sounds like the movie is headed back towards being more of a […]

The Tick Has Returned!

Anyone remember watching The Tick, which starred an idiotic but good-natured superhero (named The Tick) and his brainier but not quite so confident sidekick, Arthur? The show was hilarious, and while it has been canceled a few times, it never seems to die completely. The lovable superhero is back on the Minisodes Network, which takes […]

Watch 10 New Drillbit Taylor Clips

I’ve posted ten new clips for Drillbit Taylor, the new Owen Wilson movie. As I’ve calculated out, this probably means you can see about a third of the movie sitting in front of your computer… legally. Drillbit Taylor opens this Friday, and is the first major film release for Wilson since his suicide attempt last […]
