Justin Long - 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip' premiere at the Darryl F. Zanuck Theatre at Zanuck Theater at 20th Century Fox Lot - Los Angeles, California, United States - Saturday 12th December 2015
Redfoo talks about some of the ups and downs of working with three mischievous characters, Simon, Alvin and Theodore. Constant practical jokes and partying can become tiresome even for the likes of Redfoo!
Alvin, Theodore & Simon have spent their lives living with Dave, their adoptive father and they've never been happier. None more so than Dave, who's happily in a relationship - when the three Chipmunks think Dave's about to propose to his partner, they have feelings of doubt as to if they want new step brother who loves nothing more than antagonising the Chipmunks and decide there's nothing left to do but journey to the other side of the country and stop Dave from proposing to his Doctor girlfriend Samantha.
Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip is released in the UK 12 February 2016.
Having literally gone from rags to riches, Alvin, Simon and Theodore didn't think their lives could get any better - and they certainly didn't think it could all go downhill. Their best friend and father figure Dave has met a woman, and while the chipmunks are happy to have a new face in their lives, they're super worried it could mean the end for them. Dave is going to Miami to propose and is planning on leaving his furry friends at home in Los Angeles. But after a serious misunderstanding, the guys believe that they are going to be abandoned forever. And so, they set out follow Dave to the sunny city to stop the proposal and save their friendship with Dave - while gaining yet more fans with their spontaneous musical exhibitions along the way.
The pair were dating for two years
Is it the season for relationship endings? Perhaps so, as another celebrity pairing bites the dust. This time the romance that has ended is Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long who had been together for two years. US Weekly has reported that the two will be walking the red carpet solo from now on.
Amanda is now a single girl out on the town again
A source told the publication that it "happened a few weeks ago" and added that "he [Long]'s really heartbroken".

Alvin, Simon and Theodore are preparing to embark on more mischievous adventures; venturing out on a road trip to New York, throwing star-studded parties and doing what they love best - singing! But meanwhile, they have some serious business to attend to. They are convinced that their friend Dave is planning on proposing to his girlfriend, before leaving the chipmunks to fend for themselves. It's all a huge misunderstanding, of course, but these musical rodents have a good reason to believe they might lose their buddy; it's not as if they make life easy for him. Thus, the chipmunks - led by Alvin - set out to travel cross country to meet Dave in New York and convince him not to propose. Not only are they worried about being left alone, but they're also not loving the idea of their potential new stepbrother.
With clips from more than 200 teen movies made in the decade after 1995's Clueless, this lively kaleidoscopic documentary entertainingly traces how America has depicted the teen experience on screen. The film's structure feels a little deliberate, and it of course is looking at a portrayal of puberty, not the real thing. But it's inventively edited by first-time feature director Charlie Lyne, with a snappy pace and some seriously interesting observations along the way.
These 10 years are significant because they marked an expansion in the style of coming-of-age movies, encompassing genres from comedy to sci-fi to horror to explore the clashes between high school factions of jocks, nerds, burnouts, artists and mean girls. Taken together, these films paint a vivid, perhaps exaggerated portrait of adolescence, including key rites of passage, the mob mentality, and the various things that feel threatening to the "herd" (like smart kids or loners). High school is the time when teens experiment with alcohol, partying, rebellion and sex, while facing up to peer pressure and their own mortality for the first time. And ultimately, everyone must navigate this emotionally overwrought period on his or her own.
The film breaks down this experience into five chapters: fitting in (as either a maverick or conformist), acting out (challenging the rules), losing yourself (developing your own identity), toeing the line (being forced to obey the rules) and moving on (growing into an adult). This kind of makes the movie feel like an academic thesis, especially with the somewhat overwritten narration (voiced by teen star Fairuza Balk). But the movie is packed with telling connections between this vast variety of movies, all of which reflect reality without ever depicting it too honestly. Thankfully, Lyne's editing is knowing and often very funny, putting scenes together to say something completely unexpected.

Despite an interesting premise and plenty of gross-out moments, 'Tusk' never quite fulfils its own potential.
The idea for Kevin Smith's new horror movie Tusk starring Justin Long was born from a podcast and most critics agree that it should have remained in its infancy. Long plays a podcast who is targeted by a sadistic killer while attempting to land an interview with a misanthropic adventurer - an original idea for sure, but Tusk never fulfils its potential.
"There's too much forced winking in it; everything is a goof, a lark, a Smith-style in-joke for the in-crowd," said Stephanie Zacharek of Village Voice.

Wallace Bryton (Justin Long) has a job that most could only dream of. He spends his working days travelling around and discovering interesting people whom he then interviews for his radio podcasts. It's a voyage of education and cultural vibrancy - though it rarely occurs to this adventurous wanderer that it could be a little dangerous. He decides to travel to an isolated area of Manitoba in Canada to meet a man with many stories of his own adventures at sea, including being rescued from a sinking boat by a walrus. However, Wallace finds himself drugged at the man's house within hours and spends the next few terrifying days being tortured into behaving like a walrus while this mysterious Mr. Howe (Michael Parks) prepares to perform a gruesome and disfiguring operation involving a carefully prepared pair of ivory tusks. Meanwhile, Wallace's girlfriend and colleagues are getting seriously worried about where on Earth he's got to.

She's back! Get ready to relive your teens.
Get ready to check out the trailer for the upcoming Veronica Mars movie ahead of the film's release in just a few short weeks. After an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign, pretty much the entire team from the 2004 was rounded up for another murder mystery. Rob Thomas ('90210'), the TV series creator, directs the reboot, teaming up with co-writer Diane Ruggiero.
The Fan-Funded 'Veronica Mars' Movie Is Almost Here!
The film sees Kristen Bell reprise her role as the unbeatable Veronica Mars, only she has walked away from the crime-solving part of her life by becoming a top-notch lawyer and making her father very proud. However, her new start is interrupted when she is summoned to her hometown of Neptune to attend a high school reunion.
Veronica Mars spent her teenage years as a private eye alongside her detective father. Despite achieving a private detective's license at the age of 18, she plans to walk away from that part of her life now having seemingly had her fill of solving grisly murders. Now older and wiser, she has made it as a formidable New York lawyer, to the immense pride of her father. However, her new start is interrupted when she is called back to her hometown of Neptune during a high school reunion. Her former boyfriend Logan Echolls has been accused of murdering someone for a second time, despite her proving his innocence to a first murder as a teenage sleuth. Will her eye for detail and supreme intelligence prevail once again and help her solve another mystery, or has she lost her touch?

The filmmakers make a serious mistake by aiming this educational epic at very young children, because they've undermined the considerable skill and artistry that have gone into making it. An astoundingly trite script overflows with goofy slang and lame jokes that make the film virtually unwatchable for anyone over the age of 5. And the dialog tries so hard to be hip and cool that it already feels badly dated.
It opens on a rather awkward framing story about a palaeontologist (Urban) who takes his niece and nephew (Rice and Rowe) to look for dinosaur fossils in rural Alaska, at which point we are taken back in time to see what life was life in the Late Cretaceous Period. Enter Patchi (voiced by Long), a young pachyrhinosaurus whose best pal is a talkative bird named Alex (Leguizamo). Patchi also has an annoying big brother named Scowler (Stone) and a love-interest in Juniper (Sircar). As the young pachyrhinos grow up, they have a series of adventures along the path migrating north and south with the seasons. Vicious predators chase them, and both Patchi and Scowler take a shot at leading the herd.
The plot is fairly simplistic, but it's a decent tool to teach us about the various animals of the period. The dialog is another story altogether, packed with inane observations, stupid gags and lazy one-liners. By comparison, the required poo, vomit and snot jokes are genuinely witty. And a considerable amount of real information about the period and the creatures gets lost in all of the idiotic patter.
