Kelsey Grammer And Martin Lawrence To Star In New Show Green-Lit By FX


Kelsey Grammer Martin Lawrence

FX have green-lit a new comedy series starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence, with the network announcing the news of the new series this Wednesday (June 19). The pair will star as two Chicago lawyers who, despite being poles-apart in their personal and professional life, develop the unlikeliest of friendships.

Like the Charlie Sheen series Anger Management and the planned George Lopez sitcom coming to the network soon, the series will follow the 10/90 rule that guarantees a series a 100-episode run, providing the first 10 episodes of the show are a hit. Again, like Anger Management, the series will also be produced at a speedy rate, ensuring the full set of 100 episodes are completed within a relatively short period of time between each other. The network will still air individual seasons at a conventional time, rather than airing all 100 episodes in one push.

The show will mark Lawrence's return to television on a regular basis for for the first time since his sitcom, Martin, ended in 1997. As for Grammer, whose most recent starring role in Staz's Boss has won him much acclaim, it will mark a welcomed return to comedy in general; his last comedic roles coming only briefly during 2012 when he played 'himself' on 30 Rock for two episode and reprised his role as Sideshow Bob on two episodes of The Simpson. Both actors are clearly excited to work with each other as well, with the Grammer and Lawrence each releasing gushing statements about their co-star following the announcement of the new series.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son Review


Terrible
It's astonishing that there's a third film in this deeply unfunny series (I skipped Part 2). But at least it's undemanding to watch, with its by-the-numbers plot, paper-thin characters and cheesy sentimentality.

After witnessing a murder, FBI agent Malcolm (Lawrence) takes his 17-year-old rapper-wannabe son Trent (Jackson) undercover with him: Malcolm again becomes Big Momma, while Trent enrols in a girls' performing arts school as Charmaine.

While Malcolm plays housemother while seeking evidence needed to lock up the Russian killer (Curran), Trent hangs with the girls, falling for a musician Haley (Lucas). And the school maintenance man (Love) falls for Momma.

Death At A Funeral Review


Weak
If you've seen Frank Oz's 2007 British comedy, it feels rather pointless to watch this almost word-for-word remake. Sure, the setting is different, but the uneven mixture of slapstick and sentiment are still here, so newcomers might find it diverting.

Aspiring author Aaron (Rock) is preparing his father's funeral amid all kinds of distractions. His novelist brother Ryan (Lawrence) jets in from New York, but won't help at all. His wife Michelle (Hall) is pushing him to move out from their mother's (Devine) house. The boyfriend (Marsden) of his cousin (Saldana) has just accidentally been given a hallucinogen. Uncle Russell (Glover) is on the rampage. And a small man (Dinklage) has something shocking to announce.

Through all of this, Aaron's hypochondriac best friend Norman (Morgan) tries to maintain some semblance of order. But he's useless.

Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins Review


Good
In the growing list of potentially humorous backdrops, the African-American family reunion is rapidly becoming an overused archetype. Everyone from Tyler Perry to Red Grant has utilized the setting for their combination of slapstick and cultural satire. Granted, it gives a filmmaker ample opportunity to splatter a broad spectrum of larger-than-life personalities onto an equally oversized and recognizable canvas, but the tendency toward stereotypes and sentimentality often ruins the insights. At first glance, it appears that the new ensemble comedy Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins will fall into that same clichéd category. But looks, as we all know, can be very deceiving indeed.

Having abandoned his Deep South roots for big city fame, Roscoe Jenkins (Martin Lawrence) is now Dr. R.J. Stevens, TV self help guru, media mogul, and fiancé to supermodel Survivor winner Bianca Kittles (Joy Bryant). When his parents (James Earl Jones and Margaret Avery) announce a family reunion for their 50th wedding anniversary, Roscoe is reluctant to go. Seems he still carries sour memories of life with siblings Otis (Michael Clarke Duncan), Betty (Mo'Nique), and adopted "cousin" Clyde (Cedric the Entertainer). Guilt eventually brings him back home, and after nine long years, things haven't changed much. The same old rivalries exist, his father remains aloof and critical, cousin Reggie (Michael Epps) is a no-good hustler, and high school crush Lucinda (Nicole Ari Parker) is as hot as ever. It will be a trying four days -- if he survives that long.

Wild Hogs Review


OK
Prior to my screening of Wild Hogs, the theatre played an advertisement in which two identical cars "sumo fight" on an elevated circular stage. Each car is distinguished by its performance. One charges forth, its engines roaring healthily, its nose forcing the other back. This other, its engine squealing pathetically, submits to the force of its opponent until eventually plummeting from the edge of the stage. The difference between the two cars? The first was running on superior fuel.

This car reminds me of Wild Hogs. Ostensibly, Wild Hogs is the same model as every other middle-of-the-road road movie; a hybrid vehicle that mishmashes middle-age crisis comedy with fish-out-of-water, city-slicker slapstick. However, its charismatic and effortless cast, and the occasional bit of wit, see that it performs better than the usual Hollywood dross regularly offered up as comedy. Hence its box office success.

Open Season Review


Grim
There was a time, not too long ago, when there was one great computer-animated film per year, and that was it. Then, seemingly overnight, there were a dozen computer-animated films every year, and every single one of them had to do with an animal trying to find its home. This year is no exception; Over the Hedge, Ice Age: The Meltdown, and The Wild have already been released and there's still at least two more coming out before the end of the year and probably four others that escape my mind. Tacked onto this ever-growing list is Open Season, the latest from The Lion King director Roger Allers.

In a small rural town where camping and hunting are daily parts of life, Boog (Martin Lawrence) has a damn good life...99 for a grizzly bear, that is. He does a show with his friend, park ranger Beth (Debra Messing), and has a nice little bed and three meals a day in her basement. Then one day, Boog frees a deer named Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) from the hood of dumb-as-brick hunter Shaw's (Gary Sinise) truck. Elliot considers this an act of eternal friendship and begins to follow Boog around everywhere, eventually causing Boog to lose his show with Beth. Without a home or means of livelihood, Boog is sent back to the forest with Elliot. Here, Boog must find his inner bear (did I just type that?) and Elliot must find the courage to stand up to head buck Ian (Patrick Warburton). All of this happens while the pair are also trying to find their way back home and attempting to not get killed by Shaw.
