How To Be Single Review

Very Good

There isn't much originality in this rude female-led comedy, but its observations on single life are a nicely updated twist on the Sex and the City formula. The film is also often very funny, keeping the energy levels high while refusing to go down the usual narrative route in each of the loosely intertwined plot-strands.

It's set in New York, of course, where Alice (Dakota Johnson) is newly single and starting a new job. Her colleague Robin (Rebel Wilson) takes her under her wing, teaching her how to be single in the big city. Alice's sister Meg (Leslie Mann) is a maternity doctor who's suddenly feeling the need to have a child of her own. Then just as she becomes pregnant using a sperm bank, she meets the outrageously charming Ken (Jake Lacy), who she thinks might be too young for her. Meanwhile, Alice's neighbour Lucy (Alison Brie) is flirting with the womanising local barman Tom (Anders Holm) as she looks for her perfect man.

Yes, this is another movie in which women define themselves by their aching need for a man. This kind of undermines the "you have to be happy on your own" message, although at least the three main romantic-comedy plots don't fit into the usual cliched structure. The film is packed with frank, girly conversations, exploring how it feels to be single in a society in which coupling up is seen as the ultimate goal. So while commenting on every possible aspect of sex and relationships, the script also tries to say that it's perfectly fine to remain happily unattached. Thankfully, the cast is grounded enough to balance the comedy and romance in realistic situations. Johnson, Brie and Mann all deliver funny, revealing performances as smart women who make silly decisions. Wilson, by contrast, is mere comic relief in the same role she always plays.

Dakota Johnson Laughs Off Brush With Wardrobe Malfunction At People's Choice Awards


Dakota Johnson Leslie Mann Alison Brie People's Choice Awards

Dakota Johnson laughed off her flirtation with wardrobe malfunction at the People’s Choice Awards last night, saying “it’s not like everybody here hasn’t already seen my boobs!”

The 26 year old American star, who shot to fame after appearing as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey last year, was accepting her award for Favourite Dramatic Movie Actress at the awards ceremony on Wednesday night (January 6th) when a hug from presenter Leslie Mann apparently damaged her dress.

Reaching behind her back to fasten herself back in to her silver Armani crop top dress, Johnson gamely made light of the brush with embarrassment, exclaiming “Leslie just broke my dress!” before referencing her famous role.

How To Be Single Trailer


When Alice finds herself single after her last relationship comes to an end, her friend Robin takes it on herself to remind Alice how to play the field and have fun! Robin knows if Alice gets caught up in a lul it'll take her much longer to recover, so she teaches Alice a few tricks to have fun and cheap nights out.

Whilst Robin means well, Alice's views on how to get over her breakup differ to her friends but eventually she comes to realise that Robin might have a point - so much so that her new way of life might just help a few more of her friends too. How To Be Single is a lighthearted take on a group of female friends who are all trying to deal with different life issues.

How To Be Single is produced by Drew Barrymore and is directed by Christian Ditter.

Trailer For 'Community' Season Five Hits The Web [Video]

Community will at last be back on our screens in the new year and to celebrate the long-awaited return of the Greendale Seven (whose numbers have admittedly declined since the start of the show) an all-new trailer has been released by NBC. Marking the return of series creator Dan Harmon to the helm, the new trailer is a cinematic feast, coming across more as a movie trailer than a promo for a television series.

It seems as though Joel McHale's Jeff Winger has finally been able to reignite his law career after spending four years at the community college, only for it all to come crashing down as soon as he could get things moving again. The pop culture references are right here just as you would expect, with Abed (Danny Pudi) comparing Winger's return to Greendale with season nine of Scrubs, posing, "It could be like Scrubs season nine - a revamp, a do-over."

The Kings Of Summer Review


Excellent

This is the kind of American independent comedy-drama that restores our faith in the cinema, combining a talented cast, witty direction and a razor-sharp script to reboot the coming-of-age genre. It's an original approach that completely wins us over; even the film's slightly too-wacky touches are genuinely hilarious. And it's all grounded in realistic characters we can identify with, especially when they're in amusingly awkward situations.

The story centres on Joe (Robinson), a teen who is fed up with the way his widowed father Frank (Offerman) takes out his grief on anyone at hand. Joe's sister (Brie) has already escaped, moving in with her goofy boyfriend (Cordero), and now that school has let out for the summer, Joe decides to build a bolt-hole in the woods. He finds a collaborator in his best pal Patrick (Basso), whose inane parents (Mullally and Jackson) are so annoying that he has broken out in hives. Then Biaggio (Arias), a strange kid no one really knows, joins them to build a secret cabin where no one can find them. And they love this independent lifestyle so much that they never want summer to end.

Along the way, the film takes a wonderfully honest look at the horrors of adolescence. Joe's and Patrick's parents always say the most embarrassing things imaginable, so getting away from them is like a blast of freedom. And there's a very strong female lead in Kelly (Moriarty), the girl Joe fantasises about even though she has eyes for other boys. Robinson and Basso are excellent in the lead roles, playing characters we can easily identify with and root for. Arias is hilarious as the rather ridiculous Biaggio, making the most of a role that's perhaps the film's only false note: he's just too nutty to be believable.

Lego - Teaser Trailer


Emmet is just a regular little Lego guy with an average and uneventful life. However, that's all about to change when wizened mystic Vitruvius mistakes him for the amazing Master Builder and enlists him on a mission to save the plastic building block world from being glued together by an evil adversary. He has no choice but to accompany Vitruvius, Batman and an attractive by feisty female mini-figure as they track their nemesis down before havoc can be wreaked upon the world, despite being dangerously unprepared and certainly unskilled in anything surrounding life and death matters. Will Emmett surprise himself and live up to the overwhelming expectation? Or is Legoland doomed to be enveloped in adhesive?

Based on the popular toy that has absorbed both children and adults for 64 years, 'Lego' is hilarious animated movie directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ('21 Jump Street', 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'), and Chris McKay ('Robot Chicken'). Lord and Miller also co-wrote the screenplay alongside brothers Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman ('Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu', 'Hotel Transylvania'). With a star-studded ensemble cast playing a variety of well-known Lego mini-figures, the film is definitely set to be a hit all round when it comes to screen on February 14th 2014.

Is 'The Kings Of Summer' A Ready-Made Summer Comedy Hit Or Cliché Ridden Flop?: Review Round-Up


Nick Offerman Alison Brie Megan Mullally

The Kings of Summer isn't exactly a title that will have many hanging off the edge of their seat in anticipation, it has some critics commenting that it could be the the surprise hit of the spring/summer indie-box office line-up. Still, a good proportion seem to agree that the film fails to light up the cinema screen and is one of the indie-flicks to stay clear of, at least until it comes out on DVD anyway.

Watch the trailer for The Kings of Summer

The film follows three teenage friends - Joe (Nick Robinson), Patrick (Gabriel Basso) and Biaggio (Moises Arias) - who decide to spend their summer building their own house in the middle of the wood, living from the land and enduring a parent-free summer of a lifetime. With a father-son relationship undertone that Time Magazine's Mary F. Pols says make the film "really work" as a multi-faceted comedy-drama. Publishers such as the USA Today and New York Times also agree that the film "tackles youth with off-kilter charm" and is "embellished with clever cinematic flourishes" respectively. If you're still a little apprehensive about going to see it, the film also stars ultimate man Nick Offerman and the lovely Alison Brie.

Dan Harmon Could Be Returning To Community: Six Seasons And A Movie Here We Come!


Dan Harmon Alison Brie Joel McHale

Amidst falling ratings and some pretty lousy episodes until around the halfway point of season four, it looks as though series creator Dan Harmon could be returning to Community to help pen the script for the fifth trip to Greendale Community College.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the news on Monday, stating that Harmon is exploring the possibility of making a welcome return to the show he created. The show was commissioned for a fifth season the day after the final episode of season four aired, a series that was slow to start and had many fans and critics complaining that it had lost it's edge without Harmon at the helm. His replacements, David Guarascio and Moses Port, might still stop on if Harmon does decide to return to the Alison Brie and Joel McHale staring show, with the series creator joining the two as a co-writer or advisor.

Dan was fired from the show at the end of season third, following fallings out with officials at Sony Entertainment - who own network NBC - as well as cast and crew members, most famously Chevy Chase. Since his dismissal from the show he has been vocal on the subject when asked and during a radio interview with KCRW's 'The Business' last year, Harmon mentioned that he would only be willing to rejoin the show if Chase also came back. He also said, "Sony was always so bummed out about the way I wrote and thought, and they always fantasized about doing the show without me."

The Kings Of Summer Trailer


Joe Toy is struggling under the weight of his over-bearing single father Frank; his rules, curfews and sanctions are suffocating him as his independence is slowly quashed day by day during his summer vacation. In a bid for the first taste of freedom in his life, he grabs his best friend Patrick Keenan, an equally suppressed teenage boy, and takes him on a trip to the woods where he shows him where they will build their own house free from any kind of parental strain. Tagging along is a weird and unpredictable kid named Biaggio who they're too afraid to reject, and who thinks up an idea of a kidnapping to explain their dramatic runaway to their worried parents. While they struggle to live off the land and take care of themselves, their friendships are tested as they discover just how difficult it is to be independent, parents or no parents.

However, tempers rise and friendships are put to the test as they discover that true independence is almost impossible as even the kind of family you choose becomes just as restricting as the one you were born with.

The Five-Year Engagement Review

So they postpone the wedding and head to the snowy Midwest. There, Violet's career soars while Tom has little to do beyond making sandwiches in a deli and going hunting with his new friends. And before they can set a new date, Violet's sister (Brie) marries and has two kids with Tom's best pal (Pratt).
