Dan Harmon Joel McHale Gillian Jacobs Danny Pudi Alison Brie Ken Jeong Jim Rash

Yahoo!’s planned foray into long form digital content was met with some confusion when the appointed executive producers of the new projects Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Mike Tollin (Smallville) made the announcement at Digital Content NewFronts back in April. However, after a Community revival was announced as one of the first projects, viewers’ doubts seem to have been assuaged.

The Way, Way Back Review


Extraordinary

An especially strong script gives actors plenty to chew on in this comedy-drama, in which writer-directors Faxon and Rash (The Descendants) take an observant look at the awkward connections we make with each other. Using sparky humour and emotion, the filmmakers and cast create vivid characters we can't help but identify with, even when they do all the wrong things.

At the centre, Duncan (James) is a 14-year-old who dreads spending the summer at a beach house owned by Trent (Carrel), the cruelly critical new boyfriend of his mother Pam (Collette). When they arrive, they meet gossipy neighbour Betty (Janney), who has a whole season of neighbourhood parties planned. And her daughter Susanna (Robb) looks just about as miserable as Duncan does. As he tries to escape, Duncan finds a local water park run by colourful misfit Owen (Rockwell), who takes Duncan under his wing and offers him a summer job. And being on his own gives him the badly needed self-confidence to talk to his mother honestly, take on Trent and maybe even ask Susanna out on a date.

Even though this is essentially a standard coming-of-age movie, the script never falls into the usual cliches. For example, when Duncan's first kiss comes along, it plays out in an unexpected, realistic way. This is a generous, honest comedy packed with terrific characters and resonant situations. Supported by the all-star cast, James delivers an impressive performance as a sullen teen struggling to face the world around him , growing up while remaining awkward and likeable. Meanwhile, Stockwell keeps us laughing with a lively party-boy turn that's underscored with sympathy. Collette beautifully layers the repressive, conflicted Pam. Carell goes nicely against type as the cruelly passive-aggressive Trent. And Janney steals the show with the most hilarious lines.

Jim Rash Moved The Way Way Back Shoot To Accomodate Steve Carell


Jim Rash Steve Carell

Actor-turned-director Jim Rash was so desperate to land Steve Carell as the lead in his new comedy drama The Way Way Back, he took the shoot to Massachusetts so the actor could work and still spend time with his family.

Rash, who won an Oscar as the screenwriter of George Clooney's The Descendants, admits he was willing to do whatever was necessary to secure the Despicable Me star's talents to portray Trent, the overbearing boyfriend of Toni Collette's character in the coming of age movie.

He says, "My writing partner, Nat Faxon, and I wrote a letter to Steve to chase him. He wrote back that he loved the script but wanted to spend the summer with his family. So we wrote him again and said, 'Well, what if we shoot in Marshfield, Massachusetts', where he was planning on vacationing with his family? So that worked out; the crew lived on the street where Steve spent the summer."

The Way, Way Back Trailer


Duncan is a 14-year-old boy struggling to fit in anywhere and dealing with all the problems that most teenagers are forced to deal with at some stage. His mother Pam has a new boyfriend, Trent, who happens to be a jerk with a keen interest in humiliating Duncan at every opportunity. As the summer nears, the family embark on a vacation at Trent's beach house where he meets their new neighbour's daughter Susanna who, far from seeing him as a socially awkward and embarrassing individual, warms to Duncan immediately. He also meets the unprofessional and extroverted manager of the Water Wizz water park, Owen, who offers him a job and some excitement on his otherwise uninteresting vacation and subsequently helps him grow in confidence and self-belief.

Jim Rash Denies Mocking Angelina Jolie's Leggy Oscars Pose


Angelina Jolie Jim Rash

Comedian Jim Rash insists he mimicked Angelina Jolie's striking, leggy Academy Awards pose as he collected the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay as a "loving tribute" to the Hollywood beauty.
The Community star and co-writers Alexander Payne and Nat Faxon picked up the award for their work on The Descendants at Sunday's (26Feb12) big event, and Rash raised a laugh onstage by copying the strong pose Jolie had adopted while reading out the nominees minutes earlier.
Flaunting her long right leg through the slit of her black velvet Atelier Versace dress, Jolie wowed the audience and TV viewers, but it was Rash's funny stance that became a talking point of the evening.
However, he insists he only meant to pay tribute to the Salt stunner.
He says, "I had just seen her pose and thought it was bold and fun. And you know what? We have exactly the same legs. (It was) a loving tribute and nothing but."
Rash tells the Washington Post, “It was just an impulse. I was just standing there and I thought (I'll stick my leg out). I hope it was OK. I hope she thought it was OK. It was a loving tribute."

The Descendants Review


Extraordinary
As with Sideways and About Schmidt, Payne finds clever ways to blend sharp comedy and warm drama to create a seriously involving and entertaining film.

And Clooney has never had a role that was quite as emotionally resonant as this.

In sunny Hawaii, Matt (Clooney) has coasted through marriage and parenthood, focussing on his career and managing the estate of his family, which is descended from Hawaiian royalty. But now his wife (Patti Hastie) is in a coma, and he has to take responsibility for his free-spirited daughters, 10-year-old Scottie (Miller) and 17-year-old Alexandra (Woodley). Meanwhile, his cousins want to sell off a gorgeous tract of ancestral land in Kauai. Amid all of this, Matt finds out that his wife isn't going to wake up, and also that she had been having an affair.
