For Ellen Review


OK

One of those mopey independent dramas that drifts through a mere hint of a plot, this film is worth a look for its unusual setting and a superb central performance from Paul Dano (last seen in Looper). Filmmaker Kim focusses so closely on him that everything else on screen kind of fades into the background, turning the movie into a deeply personal odyssey. Although there isn't much more to it than that.

Dano plays an aimless rocker named Joby, who travels to a snowy town to settle his divorce from Claire (Levieva). She's so angry with him that she won't even see him for the sake of their young daughter Ellen (Mandigo), preferring to talk through lawyers. And since she knows Joby is deeply in debt, she makes a cruel offer: he can have half the value of their marital home if he signs over sole custody of Ellen, whom he barely knows anyway. But this isn't an easy decision, and Joby can only get so much help from his inexperienced lawyer (Heder). As part of the negotiations, Joby gets to spend two hours with his daughter. And then he has to make up his mind.

Dano is superb as the hapless Joby, who finds it so difficult to concentrate on his life that he's about to be thrown out of his own band. As a result, his life seems to be one mess after another, leading to this key moment when he needs to snap to attention. So it's especially intriguing that we can feel the internal pull toward his daughter: he wants to be a good dad, but is terrified of doing something wrong. And the film finds a lively counterpoint in Heder's comically clueless lawyer, another grown man who is painfully ill-equipped to face the real world.

Napoleon Dynamite To Become Animated Series


Napoleon Dynamite Jon Heder Efren Ramirez Aaron Ruell Jon Gries Jared Hess

The cult comedy film Napoleon Dynamite starring Jon Heder is set to become an animated series, reports MTV News. The 2004 indie favourite about a small-town kid became an instant hit when it was released, and Fox have now confirmed that they will be showing six animated episodes from the new series.

It was reported back in May 2010 that the network were planning to develop the movie, with Heder, Efren Ramirez, Aaron Ruell, and Jon Gries all set to provide voices for their original characters. Jared Hess, who co-wrote and directed the movie, is taking up the role of executive producer and writer on the animated series, while 'The Simpsons' executive producer MIKE SCULLY has also joined the team and will act as a producer. Currently, there is no word as to when the series will be broadcast, but reports suggest that 'Napoleon Dynamite' will become part of Fox's new Sunday night animation scheduling which currently shows 'The Simpsons', 'Family Guy', 'American Dad', and 'The Cleveland Show'.

The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004, and despite its modest budget, grossed $44.5 million worldwide, quickly developing a cult following.

When In Rome Review


Grim
Despite its over-the-top zaniness, this romantic comedy manages to keep us entertained with its starry cast and a nutty plot. If only the filmmakers had resisted the urge to exaggerate both the humour and the sentimentality.

Guggenheim curator Beth (Bell) is organising an important museum event when she has to dash to Rome for her sister's sudden wedding, where she begins to fall for best man Nick (Duhamel), who rescues her from a few embarrassing moments but lets her down romantically. In a funk, she swipes some coins from a fountain then ends up being stalked back in New York by the lovelorn guys (painter Arnett, wannabe model Shepard, street magician Heder and art patron DeVito) who threw them into the water.

When In Rome Trailer

Heder Drops Out Of Ferrell Sitcom


Jon Heder Will Ferrell

Jon Heder has abruptly pulled out of starring in an upcoming sitcom produced by Will Ferrell, citing "creative differences".

The Napoleon Dynamite star was signed up to play a computer geek who moves back to his small hometown to live with his parents in the untitled series, set to air on U.S. network Comedy Central.

But he's now dropped out of the project - just days before production was due to begin this week (begs29Mar10).

Heder's rep tells EW.com, "Comedy Central, Gary Sanchez Productions and Jon Heder have mutually decided to part ways over creative differences with the character. Jon wishes the show nothing but success, and is very grateful for the opportunity."

Heder's Twin Dilemma


Napoleon Dynamite Jon Heder

Napoleon Dynamite star Jon Heder fears his identical twin brother is wrecking his image as a nice guy - because he refuses to pretend he's his famous sibling.

Dan Heder is a spitting image of the actor and he's always mistaken for his brother.

The more famous Heder says, "If you meet me on the street and I say, 'No, it's not him,' it's probably him... People ask, 'Can I get your autograph?' And they'll ask him and he'll say no and it makes me look like a jerk.

"They'll say, 'Whatever, you don't have a twin.' They think it's the worst excuse."

Surf's Up Trailer

Followed by a camera crew to document his experiences, Cody leaves his family and home in Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Off.

Monster House Review


Excellent

Every perfect and picturesque neighborhood - at least in the movies - has one: that creepy old house that fuels the nightmares and serves as the centerpiece of the double-dog dares for the local kids.

DJ (Mitchel Musso) has made the house his mission. He's set his bedroom up as home base to watch old Mr. Nebbercracker across the street, an irate curmudgeon (voiced by Steve Buscemi) who steals any balls or bikes that find their way into his yard, chases after kids to keep off his lawn, and, presumably, thinks the music kids listen to today is nothing but noise. Within an hour of DJ's parents leaving for the weekend, Nebbercracker is dead (from a heart attack during an apoplectic moment at finding DJ on his lawn) and DJ is finding out that the old coot might not have been the most dangerous part of the creepy old house, because the house itself is starting to... eat people.

The Benchwarmers Review


Good
ESPN.com columnist Bill Simmons recently wrote how he thought Jon Heder was at least six years away from starring in a movie with David Spade and Rob Schneider. A hair under two years seems about right to me. Napoleon Dynamite, Heder's big break, is amusing when you catch it playing remote roulette, so you can watch an absurd bit or two at a time, instead of as one, long shtick-ridden mess. With that said, Heder, with his impatient drawl and goofy charm, is a living, breathing recurring character.

So he's perfect a fit for The Benchwarmers, the latest Saturday Night Live alumni comedy from Happy Gilmore, Adam Sandler's production company. Heder does his spaz routine, gets his laughs, and moves on. The same success applies for Schneider and Spade, two guys who should never shoulder a whole movie unless a studio exec has lost a bet. In The Benchwarmers, Schneider (never the world's funniest actor) plays it straight, and Spade's cutting remarks come at amusing intervals. The result is a movie with a nice number of laughs and an encouraging message.
