Second trailer for Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy

I really, really want to love this trailer for Tammy, but I can't find it in my heart to do so. It's got everything I'm supposed to love: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, PIE, but I've just been let down by McC...

Review: The Other Woman photo
Review: The Other Woman
by Matthew Razak

The Other Woman is a raunchy comedy that wants to be taken emotionally seriously while promoting the fact that woman are awesome and can easily take the lead in any kind of film. It basically wants to be Bridesmaids, but unlike that modern comedy classic it instead comes off as crass and completely insulting to the very female characters it wants to glorify. Falling quickly into tropes, stereotypes and comic cliches it veers dangerously into trouble as its attempt at female empowerment turns into the worst case of justice porn this side of a serial killer getting killed at the end of a horror film. 

It's a despicable film that clearly has no idea what it's doing as it contradicts its own themes constantly throughout its entire run, eventually landing in a big puddle of false feminism that would set the movement back years if anyone actually cared about the movie. Oh, and there's a pooping scene. Because when you're not actually funny you always run to poop.

The Grand Seduction gets its first trailer

I'm a big fan of Taylor Kitsch and of charming comedies so putting the two together gets a big thumbs up from me. That's the gist of The Grand Seduction, which finds Kitsch as a doctor who comes to a small town for a month, ...

First trailer for Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate

Obvious Child is one of the films I regret missing out on during SXSW. It stars Jenny Slate, in her first starring role (though she's played numerous, fabulous supporting roles), as a comedienne who's life takes an unexpecte...

Red Band trailer for Walk of Shame, starring Elizabeth Banks

As Flixist's News Editor, I've seen so many trailers they eventually start bleeding into each other. Premises start sounding the same, jokes sound the same, and then things stop being entertaining. And then there's Walk of S...

First trailer for Intramural, a sports parody featuring SNL cast members

I'm not the biggest fan of sports movies as they all tend to look the same. But every once in a while, something new comes along and manages to rock the sports genre with its uniqueness. Intramural might make it close to tha...

New 'Neighbors' red band trailers are hilariously raunchy

First official trailer for Jon Favreau's Chef

Chef is an interesting film. It's definitely Favreau's passion project, but it just doesn't quite gel completely. I saw the film at SXSW and while I liked most of what I saw, the majority of the film lacked Favreau's tradema...

Newest trailer for Blended is the saddest thing I'll see all day

I'm probably the only person left waiting for the end of the Sandler/Barrymore Rom-Com trilogy that started with The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. Those films were pretty great because they were made back when Sandler s...

Review: Muppets Most Wanted photo
Review: Muppets Most Wanted
by Nick Valdez

2011's The Muppets was a breath of fresh air since it was a reboot which never really felt like one. There wasn't a grand gesture to reinvent the characters, a notable lack of cynicism, and it was most importantly, fun. It was a reunion with old pals that sort of wrote itself into a corner. Their meta narrative of avoiding obscurity left them at a place they really couldn't continue from. 

That's where The Muppets...Again! Muppets Most Wanted comes in. In an attempt to return to their Caper days, Most Wanted tries to pretend The Muppets never happened by jovially throwing the original premise out of the window. By returning to their classic comedy, however, the Muppet gang may have gotten themselves into a worse situation.
