Hello, My Name Is Doris Trailer


Since the loss of her mother, Doris hasn't really had much companionship. She has her best friend and work colleagues but love has always been something that's alluded her. She once had an offer of marriage but knowing that this would separate her from her mother, she declined.

After meeting the new director of art at her place of work, Doris automatically feels a connection with him. Sure, John might be a few years her junior and into very different things to herself, but Doris has a niggling feeling she can't leave alone. Doris might be a little bookish and bespectacled but she decides to explore new methods to attract her man.

Along the way Doris befriends some of John's friends, who at first might seem entirely different to Doris but in actuality have a lot of similarities. Doris must find a way to balance her new and old friends and also win her man. Hello, My Name is Doris actually started out as an eight minute short called Doris and the Intern, written and directed by Laura Terruso. Director Michael Showalter instantly saw the potential in the initial footage and started work on a large scale version of the film.

Justin Bieber Left 'shaking' After Prank


Justin Bieber Ellen Degeneres Wendi McLendon-Covey

Justin Bieber was left ''shaking'' after being pranked by Ellen Degeneres today (20.02.15).

The 20-year-old singer, who was recently unveiled as the new face of Calvin Klein underwear, freaked out when a lookalike model jumped out of a box wearing boxer shorts, a blonde wig and copies of the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker's tattoos while discussing his upcoming Comedy Central Roast to celebrate his 21st birthday with the chat show host.

The visibly rattled Canadian heartthrob cowered in his chair when the impersonator emerged from the box, which was disguised as a table, and shouted: ''Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my gosh. Don't do that to me! Oh my God, why me?! I'm the prankster! I'm the prankster why are you doing this? I thought we were together in this.''

'Think Like A Man Too' is finally set to hit the UK and, after the hilarity that ensued with the first 'Think Like A Man' movie in 2012, we have to admit we're excited. It would seem that the couples we wanted to live happily ever after are looking pretty solid with Michael (Terrence Jenkins) and Candice (Regina Hall) planning their upcoming nuptials in the romantic city of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) and Kristen (Gabriel Union) are already married and trying for a baby, while Bennett (Gary Owen) and Tish (Wendi McLendon-Covey) struggle to regain the spark in their relationship.

Blended Review


OK

Even with its inane script and limp direction, this film is watchable simply because Drew Barrymore is present to humanise Adam Sandler. How she does this is a mystery, but the fact remains that he's annoyingly unlikeable without her. And history proves the point: Sandler's best-ever performances were in two films opposite Barrymore, 1998's The Wedding Singer and 2004's 50 First Dates. Although this movie isn't quite in that league.

They play Lauren and Jim, who meet on a disastrous blind date and vow never to see each other again. But they end up inadvertently sharing a safari holiday to South Africa when Lauren's best pal (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and Jim's boss cancel a holiday with their five kids. Which is handy since Lauren has two energetic sons (Braxton Beckham and Kyle Red Silverstein) while Jim has three needy daughters (Bella Thorne, Emma Fuhrmann and Alyvia Alyn Lind). Of course, the children are happy to have same-sex role models along, even if Lauren and Jim can't bear to be around each other.

There isn't a split-second when we don't know exactly where this plot is heading, even though the script veers wildly between wacky slapstick mayhem and sappy lesson-learning sentimentality. Every scene is carefully concocted to elicit either laughter or tears, and the manipulative filmmaking occasionally works. Although the movie's funniest moments are offhanded gags that feel improvised between Barrymore and Sandler. The child actors are all decent, carefully cast so each each simplistic character can have his or her corny journey to some sort of personal discovery.

Cuban Fury - Alternative Trailer


Bruce Garrett is a self-doubting, overweight office worker who has very little luck with women - as his co-worker never fails to remind him. When his new boss shows up and he finds that she is a beautiful woman named Julia, he desperately wants to impress her but can't see himself having any assets that she could want in a man - that is until he sees her displaying her moves at a salsa dancing event. It sparks an old passion within Bruce, who used to be a budding dancer aiming for the UK Junior Salsa Championships when he was 13-years-old before some severe bullying ruined his performance confidence forever. He decides to take up the sport again by attending salsa dancing lessons ahead of an upcoming show, however his co-worker also has his heart set on Julia and his moves could seriously threaten Bruce's wooing plans.

This charming British comedy is about love, passion and following your dreams and has been produced by the producers of Hot Fuzz' and 'Shaun Of The Dead'. 'Cuban Fury' has been directed by James Griffiths ('Free Agents', 'Episodes') and written by Jon Brown ('Mongrels', 'After You've Gone'), and is set for release this Valentine's Day, February 14th 2014.

Blended Trailer


Jim and Lauren are single parents who, after possibly the worst blind date both of them have ever been on, part ways hoping that's the last time they'll ever see each other. However, when the restaurant manages to get their cash cards mixed up, Jim is forced to call at Lauren's house to correct the mistake. It's there he finds out that his boss has just broken up with Lauren's best friend ahead of their luxury trip to Africa, leaving the vacation up for grabs for any other takers. Excited, Jim and Lauren separately arrange to take their kids along on the safari, but are convinced their holiday is ruined when they unexpectedly bump into one another. Against all odds, however, the pair find themselves with more in common than they initially thought and start to bond over their beautiful surroundings.

'Blended' is the latest movie from comedy duo Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler who previously co-starred in '50 First Dates' and 'The Wedding Singer', with Sandler also among the production team. It has been directed by Frank Coraci (' Here Comes the Boom ', 'Click', 'Around the World in 80 Days') alongside writers Ivan Menchell ('Jonas', 'The Nanny'), Clare Sera ('Doin' It Yourself'). 'Blended' is set to hit cinemas on May 23rd 2014.

Tyler Perry's The Single Mom's Club Trailer


Feeling underappreciated and frequently undermined, many single mothers have to go through a lot to keep their children happy and to make sure they have as normal a life as possible. However, no matter how hard one might try, sometimes the children will inevitably get themselves into trouble and when five mothers of very different backgrounds are called into school when their offspring are found vandalising the school, they are forced to work together to organise and chair the upcoming annual fundraiser. The parents soon find, however, that they have much more in common than they initially thought and decide to set up a support group for desperate single mothers going through similar experiences. With new people there for each other, they help one another to find love again and get their confused and hectic lives back on track.

Cuban Fury Trailer


Bruce Garrett may not have much going for him being overweight, low in confidence and only attractive to the right sort of girl, but there was a time when he had passion and drive - as a 13-year-old dancer with dreams of winning the UK Junior Salsa Championships. However, that all changed after suffering at the hands of bullies who ground him so far down that he abandoned his performing future. Things take a desperate turn when his beautiful new boss Julia catches his eye and it so happens that she has a passion for salsa dancing too; seizing what could possibly be his only chance at true love, he brushes off his dancing shoes and sets out to fulfil his dream once again and win her heart.

'Cuban Fury' is a heartwarming British comedy from the producers of 'Hot Fuzz' and 'Shaun Of The Dead'. Directed by James Griffiths ('Free Agents', 'Episodes') and written by Jon Brown ('Mongrels', 'After You've Gone'), it's the story of how love can ignite long-buried passions in an instant - no matter what is there to hold you back. Very appropriately, it is set to hit UK cinemas on Valentine's Day next year (February 14th 2014).

 

Childless Wendi Mclendon-covey Draws On Friends' Parenting For Onscreen Roles


Wendi McLendon-Covey

Actress Wendi McLendon-Covey relies on her friends' experiences as parents for inspiration for her motherly roles onscreen because she has no desire to ever start a family of her own.

The Bridesmaids star portrayed a disgruntled mum in the hit comedy and plays the family matriarch in new U.S. Tv series The Goldbergs, but the 43 year old has no plans to have children with her husband, Greg Covey.

She tells People magazine, "Greg and I just had our 17th anniversary. I love other people's kids, but I know my limits. I don't feel like anything's missing."
