Will Ferrell's 'The House' Performs Poorly At Box Office On Opening Weekend


Will Ferrell

He’s been one of the most consistently successful comedy actors of the last two decades, but Will Ferrell’s reputation has taken a bit of a hit this week with the news that his latest movie, The House, has enjoyed the lowest opening weekend takings for any of his major films in 18 years.

Distributed by Warner Bros. and opening on a wide basis in 3,134 locations in the U.S., the new comedy looks like it will only take around $9 million at the American box office. If projections are correct, that will be the worst performance for any of his films that have seen a first-week release in over 3,000 locations – and, against a reported $40 million budget, that’s a significant underachievement.

The House Trailer


It is every parent's dream come true when their child gets into college - especially when it's the one they've been hoping for. Scott and Kate Johansen are therefore thrilled when their daughter Alex gets into Buckley College. They only problem is, there is no way they can afford the school fees after spending the entire fund. Instead of telling Alex the truth and breaking her heart, they decide that they're going to get the money together no matter what they have to do. A solution arrives in the form of Frank, who introduces them to the world of illegal underground casinos and they decide to band together with their neighbours to make up the thousands of dollars worth of tuition by building the casino in the basement. They make terrible criminals and they run the risk of going to jail for a long time, but how far are they willing to go for the sake of their child's future?

Johnny Depp Named Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor For Second Year In A Row


Johnny Depp Will Smith Channing Tatum Will Ferrell George Clooney Julia Roberts

Capping off a rather horrid 2016 for Johnny Depp is the news that he’s been judged by Forbes to be Hollywood’s most overpaid actor for the second year in a row, following a handful of big-budget disappointments at the box office this year.

The 53 year old megastar topped Forbes’ annual list of actors whose movies have underperformed at cinemas compared to their budgets, after his much vaunted sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass flopped at the box office in comparison to its predecessor.

The Boss Review

Bad

Melissa McCarthy brings another of her improvisational alter-egos to the big screen with this energetic comedy. The first cause for pause comes because this is a reteaming with her filmmaker husband Ben Falcone, with whom she made the bizarrely unfunny Tammy, as opposed to the filmmaker Paul Feig who directed her to box office triumph with Spy and The Heat and an Oscar nomination in Bridesmaids. Yes, there's a significance difference.

This time she plays hugely popular financial guru Michelle Darnell, whose stardom ends abruptly when she is sent to prison for four months for insider trading. When she's released, everyone she stepped on as she rose to the top turns their back on her, and her nemesis/ex Renault (Peter Dinklage) is still determined to get revenge. The only person who will talk to her is former assistant Claire (Kristen Bell), so Michelle moves in with her family. Unable to restart her business, she also takes over the Dandelion Scout troup of Claire's daughter Rachel (Ella Anderson), pushing the girls to take aggressive measures to sell their cookies.

As always, McCarthy throws herself into the role, creating a vivid character who indulges in a lot of outrageously silly slapstick. As with Tammy, the humour centres more on abusive interaction and humiliation than actual wit. McCarthy and Falcone strain to get laughs from physical wackiness rather than anything based on the character, so the movie only ever feels mildly amusing thanks to its high energy. But there's nothing engaging about Michelle, and it's only in a few cute-warm scenes with the terrific Bell that the film springs to anything resembling life. Thankfully, her scenes with the likeable Tyler Labine (as a potential boyfriend) have a loose humour to them. And Dinklage is surprisingly amusing as the sputtering cartoonish villain, while Kathy Bates generates a few sparks as Michelle's sassy mentor.

Will Ferrell Will Not Be Playing Ronald Reagan In Controversial Comedy


Will Ferrell Ronald Reagan

Earlier this week it was reported that Will Ferrell would be portraying former US president Ronald Reagan on the big screen in a ‘comedy’ which would focus on politician's struggle with Alzheimer’s, during his final days. However a spokesperson has now confirmed Ferrell will not be starring in the film after all and he never intended to.

Will FerrellWill Ferrell will not be playing Ronald Reagan after all.

A spokesperson for Ferrell told Deadline: “The Reagan script is one of a number of scripts that had been submitted to Will Ferrell which he had considered. While it is by no means an ‘Alzheimer’s comedy,’ as has been suggested, Mr. Ferrell is not pursuing this project.”

Ronald Reagan's Children Slam Will Ferrell's Intention To Portray President With Dementia


Ronald Reagan Will Ferrell

One would think that, in this day and age, we'd have learned that there are some things not worth making a joke about. The children of former US President Ronald Reagan have lashed out at recent reports that Will Ferrell is set to portray their father in a comedy about the politician's struggle with Alzheimer's.

Will FerrellWill Ferrell shamed for his upcoming comedy

Patti Davis wrote an open letter to Ferrell on her website yesterday (April 28th 2016) branding the actor 'ignorant' for his intentions to turn her father's turmoil into a comedic movie called 'Reagan' in which he stars and is producing with writer Mike Rosolio. She also explained more fully about how the ordeal affected her and her family.

Zoolander 2 Review

Good

With virtually the same blend of wit and idiocy as the 2001 original, this fashion-scene comedy is funny enough to spark some solid laughter in between the gags that fall flat. The punchlines are simple and the characters paper thin, but this world is so ripe for parody that the rather awkward mix of in-jokes and satire can't help but hit the bullseye every now and then.

Things haven't been great for top supermodel Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) over the past 15 years. His reading school collapsed in tragedy, sending him to live as a "hermit crab" in the wilds of northern New Jersey. And with a facial injury, his cohort Hansel (Owen Wilson) has retired in the wasteland of Malibu. Then Italian designer Atoz (Kristen Wiig) summons them to Rome, just as Interpol agent Valentina (Penelope Cruz) is investigating a series of popstar murders that seem linked to Derek's past. Teaming up with Valentina, Derek and Hansel track down their old nemesis Mugatu (Will Ferrell), reconnect with Derek's long-lost son (Cyrus Arnold) and discover a sinister conspiracy.

Stiller directs the film as if it's the next instalment in the Da Vinci Code saga, complete with shadowy secret rituals and ominous chase sequences. But the dialogue remains utterly ludicrous, as this "ridiculously good-looking" duo go through their individual existential crises, clueless that the world has moved on without them. Stiller and Wilson reprise the hang-dog charm that made the characters so likeable the first time round. Although this time Derek gets some emotional depth, while Hansel plays the action hero. Ferrell and Wiig camp it up to the rafters in their colourful roles, while Cruz vamps through the film in bombshell love-interest mode. Her deadpan performance might actually be the funniest thing in the movie. And each scene is packed with big-star cameos, some of which are genuinely amusing.

Mark Wahlberg Talks Teaming With Will Ferrell Again For 'Daddy's Home'


Mark Wahlberg Will Ferrell

In comedy Daddy’s Home Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are reunited, five years after they first paired up for action-comedy The Other Guys. In the film Wahlberg plays Dusty, a father competing for the affections of his children with their stepfather Brad (Ferrell). But although the pair are on-screen rivals Wahlberg couldn't be happier to work with Ferrell again.

Comedy legend Will Ferrell spoke exclusively to Contactmusic about his new movie Daddy’s Home, in which he stars alongside Mark Wahlberg. Out on December 25th in the US and the following day in the UK, it concerns a father and a stepdad who compete for the affections of their child.

“There’s so many blended families now, whether it’s a stepmom or stepdad,” Ferrell said of the movies premise. “The dynamic of that, and how it can be tricky at times, and then at other times it can turn out to be a good thing, it’s fun to examine that as a comedy.”

Daddy's Home Review

Good

An odd mix of sentimental family warmth and gross-out antics, this comedy doesn't have the courage of its own convictions, which means that it's not quite funny enough to keep the audience fully entertained. That said, there are just about enough laughs that hit the target, and the big-hearted humour is surprisingly endearing, with larger themes that resonate even when the filmmakers get bogged down in the strained rude jokes.

Will Ferrell plays Brad, a guy who can't have kids but has always wanted to be a dad. So when he marries Sarah (Linda Cardellini), he enthusiastically dives into the stepdad role with her children (Owen Vaccaro and Scarlett Estevez). Then just as they're finally warming to him, their biological father Dusty (Mark Walhberg) turns up, clearly determined to win his family back. What follows is a battle between a too-nice dork and a super-cool biker, competing for the affections of both Sarah and the kids. Brad gets some terrible advice from his boss (Thomas Haden Church), while Dusty recruits a handyman (Hannibal Buress) to back his side.

There's plenty of potential in this premise, but the filmmakers refuse to make the decision about who the film is aimed at. It's too vulgar to be family entertainment, but it's not edgy enough to properly appeal to adults. So it sits there genially, occasionally sparking a burst of laughter or a knowing smile. But the plot never makes any sense, mainly because to make it work the filmmakers portray Brad as a complete and utter loser until the moment the movie needs him to be the good guy. All of which is painfully predictable, complete with shamelessly sappy moralising. Thankfully, the cast can play these kinds of characters effortlessly, and both Ferrell and Walhberg add details that keep the audience engaged.

Johnny Depp Tops List Of Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors For 2015


Johnny Depp Denzel Washington Will Ferrell Liam Neeson Will Smith Adam Sandler

Johnny Depp has received the unfortunate honour of topping Forbes' annual list of Hollywood’s most overpaid actors.

The MTV Movie Award nominations have been announced and you know what? It’s so refreshing to see some different movies thrown into the mix!

Anchorman 2: How Does The Sequel Weigh Up To Anchorman? [Trailer]


Will Ferrell Paul Rudd Steve Carell

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has to be one of the most eagerly-anticipated sequels in memory with the near decade gap between the upcoming release and 2004's The Legend of Ron Burgundy serving only to heighten the fan mania surrounding the franchise.

It has been a long wait but the release of The Legend Continues is only two days away and boy, do we know it. The 2004 movie may have been released to comparatively low fanfare but the sequel has been promoted for months on end with a seemingly never-ending stream of teasers, trailers, clips and in-character public appearances from Will Ferrell, AKA Ron Burgundy, and his hapless news team.

Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell has been on an extensive promotional tour as of late, in support of his new forthcoming film 'Anchorman 2 : The Legend Continues'.

The 46 year-old has gone to every effort in his promo duties by attending certain events as the protagonist of the film, 'Ron Burgundy'.

What Are Ron Burgundy's Most Hilarious Publicity Stunts Ahead Of The 'Anchorman 2' Release?


Will Ferrell Adam McKay

As this is written, Will Ferrell and co. are probably getting ready to terrorise another part of North America with their brand of dysfunctional comedy, as the Anchorman 2 publicity train keeps on rolling. In the build up to the release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, we've heard of and seen some funny stuff, so much so we decided to make a list of our favourite bits!

Anchorman 2
Burgundy and his moustache have been working hard ahead of the film's release

His two most recent stunts are some of his best, which gives us the feeling that the bumbling Ron Burgundy will be 'reporting' up and down North America, and possibly even further afield, right up until the new Anchorman in released later this month. After enjoying "Winnipeg, the Paris of Canada" this weekend, Ron could very well be showing up somewhere unexpected later this week, but considering how good his previous stunts have been, he will have to pull out all the stops to match.

Ron Burgundy Joins Canadian Curling Trials In Winnipeg, Canada [VIDEO]


Will Ferrell

Ron Burgundy travelled north of the border this past weekend to lend a helping hand to the Canadian curling team.

The character Will Ferrell created stopped off in Winnipeg, wearing his trademark 'Anchorman' red suit accompanied with his well-known thick moustache, and even had a go at the winter sport.

Team Ontario skip Glenn Howard gave the news anchor a quick tutorial and then hit the ice, the Canadian Press reports.

Boston College Celebrates Anchorman 2 With 'Ron Burgundy School Of Communication'


Will Ferrell Steve Carell Paul Rudd John C Reilly

The Anchorman sequel is almost here and if that's not exciting enough for you then the news that top Boston university, Emerson College, will temporarily rename its school of communication 'The Ron Burgundy School of Communication' will send you into full-blown, movie-quoting overdrive.

Congratulations Anchorman Fans: Your Constant Quoting Led To 'Anchorman 2'!


Will Ferrell Steve Carell Paul Rudd Christina Applegate

By making a film with so many quotable lines, the public couldn’t resist but repeat them to each other on a daily basis; the Anchorman team basically guaranteed themselves a sequel, even if they didn’t quite know it at the time.

Anchorman 2The cult hit returns for a sequel

“We’ve never made a sequel to any of the films we’ve done because we’ve been anti-sequel. Why not explore a new idea instead of revising something that you’ve already made?” the film’s star, Will Ferrell, told Screen Rant.

Paramount Announces 'Anchorman 2' Super Ticket, Possibly The End Times


Will Ferrell

Remember when George Lukas and Steven Spielberg essentially predicted the End of Cinema as We Know It? Paramount seem to be gearing up for that apocalypse with a lapse into mega-deals, most recently an early release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, according to a report by First Showing.

The promotional stint follows a similar offer for a World War Z mega ticket from earlier this year. That offer included a ticket to a 3D showing of the film two days before the theatrical release, a small popcorn, one HD digital copy of the movie when it becomes available, a pair of collector’s custom RealD 3D glasses, and an official full-size limited-edition movie poster. Now, with the return of Ron Burgundy pending in December, Paramount have teamed up with AMC Theatres and Fandango for a nationwide offering of the program.

The Anchorman 2 trailer - a new full-length offering - is the talk of the internet and we're gonna go ahead and join the discussion. It seems Adam McKay and Will Ferrell have carved out a nice little angle for the new movie, set in a world where glorified and sexualized round-the-clock news is taking over from traditional, serious forms of journalism.

In a bid to pull in the ratings, Ron Burgundy and his team of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kid are taking things to the extreme.

The sub-plot here is that Ron is fighting his own battle against his wife and rival Veronica, who is rooted in the traditional accepted forms of journalism.

The MTV EMAs Will Have Ron Burgundy To Anchor Them After A Performance From Katy Perry


Katy Perry Will Ferrell Macklemore Justin Timberlake Lady GaGa

Katy Perry is one MTV darling who just keeps coming back – this time she will be at the EMAs (European Music Awards), almost three months after performing at the oh-so-scandalous VMAs back in August, the good folk from MTV have announced. On 10 November, Perry will take the stage in Amsterdam to perform 'Unconditionally' – the second single off her third album, Prism. The EMA audience might be in for an even bigger treat than those who got to witness the singer’s performance of 'Roar' at the VMAs, since Perry has mentioned in previous interviews that 'Unconditionally' is actually her favorite track off the album.

Katy Perry, iTunes Festival
The 'Roar'singer's schedule is fully booked these days, most recently with an appearance at the iTunes festival in London.

This is a return to the EMAs for Perry, who got to host in both 2008 and 2009. The same cannot be said about the other lead performer, however. Ron Burgundy, the 70s news anchor and lead character in Anchorman, was recently announced as the other lead act of the EMAs. Of course Will Ferrell or rather, Ron Burgundy, is sure to bring some class to the event, if only by bringing his perfectly quaffed hair to the event.

Chrysler And Paramount Team-Up To Make Will Farrell's Ron Burgundy Sell Cars [Video]


Will Ferrell

Will Farrell's prowess as a car salesman has already been exploited to great effect through his Eastbound and Down character Ashley Schafer, and upon seeing how well the blonde-haired comic creation is at shifting vehicles, the Chrysler group have decided to enlist Farrell themselves in a new marketing partnership. Farrell's Anchorman character Ron Burgundy will instead be providing the car selling nous, with Chrysler and Anchorman studio Paramount Pictures teaming up for a multi-platform marketing campaign for the 2014 Dodge Durango range.

Anchorman
Ron Burgundy doesn't have his news team to rely on in the ads

In a series of viral clips, some of which have already aired on television (as of Saturday, 5 Oct.), combines Burgundy's two greatest assets; his charisma and poetry-like mastery of the English tongue, to bring all of the Durango's unique selling points to the fore. Among these are the expansive glovebox, large enough for "two turkey sandwiches or 70 packs of gum," as well as the all new 360 horsepower engine, which must make other horses feel "pretty dumb."

The Campaign Review


Very Good

Will Ferrell's funniest movie in years, this is a silly comedy with a terrible sentimental streak, but the political satire running through it is dead on. In fact, the film's opening act is razor-sharp as it lampoons election campaigning with knowing jabs at corporate sponsorship, incumbent laziness and the difficulty of being an honest candidate. So it's disappointing when the film becomes soppy and stupid.

Ferrell creates a memorable comical character in Cam Brady, a five-term North Carolina congressman up for re-election. He's sure he will coast his way back into office, and is only mildly worried when naive local goofball Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) runs against him. Marty certainly isn't ready for the slick attacks orchestrated by Cam's campaign manager (Sudeikis). But two wealthy brothers (the underused Lithgow and Aykroyd) are bankrolling Marty's campaign in the hopes of turning the district into a Chinese sweatshop, so they hire a ruthless press officer (McDermott) to whip Marty into shape. And the game is on.

Even though the characters are cartoonish, what they do is eerily authentic. Cam is a smooth operator with strong hair and a womanising streak. He also believes he can do whatever he wants as long as he mentions "America, Jesus and freedom" in every speech. By contrast, Marty is camp and silly, with a plump wife (Baker) and kids, plus a pair of pet pugs that Cam instantly labels as "Communist Chinese dogs!" Their clashes are a riot of parody and slapstick, some of which is sharply pointed (neither says anything substantial) and some is just ridiculous (including a hilarious cameo from Uggy, the dog from The Artist).

Bachelorette Review


Good
It's easy to see this comical romp as Bridesmaids meets The Hangover, but there's a bit more to it than that. It's a genuinely silly film with a rather simple plot, as three women try to accomplish something urgent while impaired by alcohol, drugs and romance. But it's goofy enough to keep us laughing.

The trio in question are Dunst, Fisher and Caplan, high school friends who reunite in New York as bridesmaids for Becky (a cleverly against-type Wilson), a girl none of them ever really liked. On the night before the marriage, they're goofing around with Becky's rather large wedding dress, and they tear it. So now they have one long night to get it repaired. Along the way, they run into the stag night for Becky's groom (MacArthur) and his chucklehead friends (Scott, Marsden and Bornheimer).

Prior to the unopposed congressman Cam Brady's fifth term election, two affluent CEOs decide enough is enough after Brady commits a major public faux pas. They bring in a second candidate to rival Brady and allow them to gain control over North Carolina. Their candidate, Marty Huggins, though less charismatic than Brady but equally as much of an intellectual vacuum, is the na<ve local Tourism Center director who, with the help of his new supporters and a ruthless campaign manager, quickly becomes a genuine competitor incurring many more of Brady's public indiscretions.

Video - Will Ferrell: 'Sex Scenes Are Technical To Shoot'


Will Ferrell (Elf; Anchorman; Tallageda Nights) attends a press junket for his new movie 'Casa De Mi Padre' at the Regency Hotel in New York. Will reveals he learnt Spanish for three years at high school but did not complete the fourth year, after he was thrown out of the classroom for skipping a lesson. He also talked about how 'technical' sex scenes are to shoot and recalls a 'creepy' crew member watching the action while smoking.

Casa De Mi Padre is about two brothers who get in a war with a drug lord, while thinking of a plan to save their ranch.

According to USA Today, Latifah will be taking part in a special ceremony on 11th September to honour the victims of the 9/11 tragedy.

The Other Guys Review


Excellent
A sharp script sets this fast and furious action comedy apart from other brainless summer movies. And it's played with such deadpan precision that it keeps us laughing from start to finish, even when things get bogged down by the plot.

New York cops Gamble and Hoitz (Ferrell and Wahlberg) have been relegated to unimportant positions by two teams of flashier detectives (Jackson/Johnson and Wayans/Riggle). But when Gamble arrests a millionaire investor (Coogan) for a minor infraction, he and Hoitz are plunged into a murky case involving a ruthless Aussie goon (Stevenson) and bribed city officials. Even their captain (Keaton) tells them to leave it alone, but Gamble can't let go and Hoitz sees this as a chance to stop being the "other guys".

The Producers (2005) Review


OK
I'll confess up front that I never saw The Producers on stage. Not that I didn't want to: I'm a huge fan of the original Mel Brooks film -- a movie I consider, bar none, his best work and one of the 10 greatest comedies ever made. (I even wanted to name my firstborn after Zero Mostel, but that's another story.) The Broadway show also earned critical praise the likes of which few stage productions have seen: 12 Tony Awards and a waiting list for tickets that spanned over a year.

In 1968, Brooks was at the top of his game. He was also at the very beginning of it: The Producers was his first feature film, and you can track the quality of his movies on a steady decline which stretches from the awesome Blazing Saddles (1974) to the middling Spaceballs (1987) to the awful Dracula: Dead and Loving It (1995), Brooks' last appearance behind the camera.

Continue reading: The Producers (2005) Review

Superstar Review


Good
It's time to see some new female faces in comedy. Sure there are lots of women comedians, but who else can successfully headline a big-time film other than Janeane Garofalo these days? I won't believe for a second that the talent is not out there. I just think some stereotypes need to be broken down first.

That's why Superstar, starring Molly Shannon, is a breath of fresh air. It's the first film in a long while to give a woman the freedom to "get jiggy" with all-out Jim Carrey-esque full body humor.

Continue reading: Superstar Review

Men Seeking Women Review


OK
For a direct-to-video movie, Men Seeking Women is far funnier than it has any right to be. Will Ferrell is a hoot and Grant Shaud is surprisingly effective as losers (of a gang of three, including Anthony Palermo) who bet $2,000 each in a desperate attempt to find love. They hope the bet will spur them to get off their butts -- and that starts with the personal ads and blind dates.

The scheming of Palermo's prototypical Italian is of little interest (he gets an old girlfriend to play nice with him), but Ferrell's ultra-loser, whose hearfelt appeal to the sky in the Hollywood Hills is met with jeers from the locals, shines. Shaud's dalliance with a married gal (is hubby a mobster?) is relatively lame, though his equally pathetic character is goofy enough to make his few scenes fun.

Continue reading: Men Seeking Women Review

Anchorman Review


Excellent
The full title of this film, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, is a sly reference to the documentary Pornstar: The Legend of Ron Jeremy and might indicate a subtle referential humor on the filmmakers' part. But that's about as inside as the jokes get. This film is more invested in making you laugh at flat-out absurdism than clever irony, and more often than not, it succeeds.

Anchorman launches us into the world of '70s broadcast journalism with local San Diego anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) as the poster boy for men behaving badly. His supporting anchors introduce themselves by breaking the fourth wall with all the casual gusto of their on-air personas. There's good-ol'-boy Champ Kind (David Koechner) with sports, ladies' man Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) in the field, and dumb-as-a-Brick Tamland (Steven Carell) on weather. They revel in their boys' club with gleeful ignorance of terms like "sexual harassment" until new reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) enters the fray. Improbably, Ron and Veronica hit it off until a series of events puts her in the co-anchor seat and professional jealousy rips them apart, sending Ron on a downward spiral.

Continue reading: Anchorman Review

The Ladies Man Review


Weak
Ok. Where in the contract for an SNL cast-member does it stipulate that they will finance your ill-conceived film, no matter what it is? What kind of shyster agent dreamed that one up? And why does said movie ever have to be granted approval to be released to the general public?

These three questions, along with "How the hell does a lisping moron actually have game?" predominate a thinking viewer's mind as it wanders through the cerebrally deficient film The Ladies Man. But then your brain reminds you that you're not here for it. You're here so your brain can turn off for a long, long time.

Continue reading: The Ladies Man Review

Zoolander Review


Very Good
In Zoolander, the world's most successful, influential and intellectually-challenged male model Derek Zoolander wonders, "Is there more to life than being really really really good looking?" Obviously, the film's creator and star Ben Stiller asked a similar question when crafting a feature-length movie out of his hilarious VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards short-film subject: Can there be more to this film than being really really really silly? No, of course not, and it never aspires to be anything more.

Much like Derek, Zoolander is a sweet simpleton of a movie. It's not complex in either its social commentary or its comedy, and it never produces any gut-busting laughs (except maybe a scene when Derek's model roommates all die in a tragic "gasoline fight" accident -- a riotously funny take-off of Tommy Hilfiger ads). But it has a satisfying handful of strong chuckles, wild characters and performances, and mildly harsh potshots at the fashion industry to keep you amused. Better yet, this exaggerated version of the original three-minute skit is only blown out to an efficient 95 minutes -- just enough time to string together its goofball plot without exhausting the gag.

Continue reading: Zoolander Review

Bewitched Review


Bad
Heed my advice before seeing Bewitched: It may fly like a witch and twitch like a witch, but it's certainly not the beloved Bewitched.

While its trailers make you believe the small screen gem has been reincarnated from its TV Land graveyard, those expecting a proper big screen revival will be sorely disappointed. In fact, the sisters Ephron have carefully crafted a film that tries and succeeds at not resembling the original. Too bad the parts they took out are all the best bits. The finished product is new and different, but it's too predictable and remarkably devoid of anything entertaining or enduring.

Continue reading: Bewitched Review

Dick Review


Bad
In this new 70s comedy opening just in time for the anniversary of Woodstock, we follow characters Betty (Kirsten Dunst), and Arlene (Michelle Williams) on a wacky journey through Washington, D.C. following the Watergate Scandle.

The two are spotted in the White House by a gaurd who originally saw the girls at Watergate the night of the burglary. The two are taken to the infamous "West Wing" where they meet and fall in love with President Richard "Dick" Nixon, played by Dan Hedaya, and very well I might add. Unfortunetly Hedaya's very entertaining performance of Dick couldn't save this already ill-fated non-comedy.

Continue reading: Dick Review

Wedding Crashers Review


Good
About 20 minutes before the credits roll in "WeddingCrashers," something goes very wrong. It feels as if a drunken scriptdoctor stumbled into the party, demanded to know where all the clicheshad gone and insisted they be put right back where they belong.

Soon there are interrupted weddings, "I tried to tellyou but couldn't" apologies and an avalanche of other plot machinationsthat come close to ruining what is otherwise the bawdiest, most consistentlyhilarious comedy so far this year.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have an ad-lib-happy, almostHope-and-Crosby-like chemistry as a pair of buddies -- ironically talenteddivorce mediators by profession -- who spend their free time attendingweddings of people they don't know to score with girls they'll never seeagain. Almost the entire first reel of the movie is something akin to afilmmaking miracle -- one long, perfectly-tuned montage sequence of variousethnic weddings that just keeps getting funnier and funnier as it mixestoasts, dances, flirtations, made-up war stories, fake tears, and prettygirls caught up in the romance of the day and jumping our heroes' bones.

Story proper kicks in when the boys dare to crash "theKentucky Derby of weddings" -- the Secretary of State's eldest daughteris getting hitched -- and Wilson lays eyes on the middle daughter (talented,bright-eyed Everygirl knockout Rachel McAdams) as she's quietly snickeringthrough her sister's corny self-written vows.
