Review: Office Christmas Party

The grand holiday tradition happens on a yearly basis. You gather your friends and loved ones. You pop open a bottle of wine. You silence your phone, sit back, and hope that this year’s Christmas comedy is as good as the last. Let&rsq...

First trailer for Office Christmas Party delivers on title

It's basically a new holiday tradition that an R-rated Christmas comedy comes out every year now. R-rated comedies are so hot right now, and Christmas is a great time to juxtapose tradition with sex jokes. Last year we got The Night Before&...

 
 
Review: The Family Fang photo

Review: The Family Fang

All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way... well, unless you're an unhappy family in a movie, in which case you're pretty much alike. Distant/absent parents. A dictatorial patriarch. A strange childhood wh...

First teaser trailer for Disney's Zootopia

While I still miss Disney's 2D animated style since Winnie the Pooh was great but not a film to end the legacy on, Disney's been hitting it out of the park with their CG efforts. They've found quite a groove with Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, and...

Review: Horrible Bosses 2

You know when something is funny you just have to do it again, right? That's the logic with Horrible Bosses 2. The original film actually had an appealing cast that worked well together pulling the film out of cliche and into funny. Seems r...

This trailer for Horrible Bosses 2 has more jokes

I've been against Horrible Bosses 2 from the beginning. Comedy sequels rarely work, and if they do it's almost like a miracle. Every trailer I've seen for this film has a few jokes that make me laugh, and a few that rub me the wrong way.&n...

 
 
Leave You Review photo

Review: This is Where I Leave You

The dramatic family comedy. A staple in our modern day film scene. Throw is some folky pop music and a few stars and you've got yourself a big giant cliche ready for the theaters. There are ways to do it right, though. If you can pull your ...

See This is Where I Leave You early and free

Indie comedies with an all star cast? Sign you up, right? OK, how about This is Where I Leave You with Jason Bateman, Tina Fey and a plethora of other people you enjoy laughing at. Perfect? Good. Grab the passes then and enjoy yourself...

Trailer for Horrible Bosses 2 has some jokes

Horrible Bosses 2 is the latest in a long line of comedy sequels that shouldn't exist. Maybe it'll be the one good one out of the bunch, but it certainly has lots against it. For one, the title doesn't seem to make sense anymore as now the...

First 'Horrible Bosses 2' trailer looks kind of promising

Horrible Bosses wasn't the perfect film, but I enjoyed it well enough. After some of us here being less than impressed with the plot for Horrible Bosses 2, I am happy to say that at least the first trailer looks more promising than th...

 
 
 
Bad Words Review photo

Review: Bad Words

Bad Words is Jason Bateman's directorial feature (although he's technically been directing television for years now), so there's plenty riding on the film to see if Bateman's truly got the chops to make a future out of it. While Bateman dir...

SXSW Interview: Jason Bateman (Bad Words)

Taking place after the roundtable interview with Kathryn Hahn, Jason Bateman strolled in immediately grabbing the room's attention. Good thing I was no longer too nervous to speak as Bateman had plenty of knowledge stored away about his dir...

Horrible Bosses 2 plot synopsis is...meh?

I have a real hard time getting excited about a Horrible Bosses sequel. Don't get me wrong, I loved the first one, but did we need a sequel? Did Harold and Kumar need a sequel? Did Taken? No. They were fairly perfect ideas that wo...

 
 
Identity Thief Review photo

Review: Identity Thief

Jason Bateman. I love his work in Arrested Development, and some of the secondary characters he has played because he can be funny in an almost serious manner. The problem is that he hasn’t changed his style of acting practically ever...

Trailer: Identity Thief

I love me some Melissa McCarthy, almost to an unhealthy point, but this new trailer for Identity Thief doesn't bode well. I was able to write off the first trailer for the flick as goofy since I was still in love with McCarthy's goofy pers...

Trailer: Identity Thief

Melissa McCarthy deserves to be in more things. Not just as a rough ancillary character like in Bridesmaids, but a leading lady. While she's sort of funny in CBS's Mike and Molly, she's more subdued in that show. I love seeing her act in a...

Identity Thief posters label Jason Bateman a sucker

My life gets very few moments of serendipity. I know Identity Thief, a flick about a guy named Sandy (Jason Bateman) whose identity and credit card information is stolen by Diana (Melissa McCarthy) and then comedy happens, exists but I can'...

Red Band Trailer: The Change-Up

It seems like we get a new body switching comedy every two years now, doesn't it? The last one I remember was 17 Again which after a quick Google search, came out... yep, two years ago. And Leslie Mann was in that one too? What the hel...

Movie Debate to the Death! Favorite Jason Bateman film?

Last week we gathered up a few spotlights and shined the light on Kevin James. When asked which of his groan worthy films was the worst, we surprisingly had a winner emerge: Grown Ups (4 votes) -- Winner? Loser! Paul Blart: Mall Cop (3 vot...

Horrible Bosses receives new photos and plot update

In the past we only had one picture to tide us over on Horrible Bosses, the upcoming comedy with Jason Bateman and two other characters that undeservedly don't get the side character spotlight much in their career. What's more intriguing is...
