Mike and Dave are two brothers who can't help but compete with one another. They're best friends and do everything together, but when it comes to playing a lifelong game of one-upmanship they're both in it to win it. When their sister announces that she's marrying her partner in Hawaii, Mike & Dave's mum and dad are instantly horrified by the possible antics their sons could get up to.
In a bid to calm their potential actions, it's suggested to the boys that they both bring a respectable date to the wedding. Someone they can present to their families and show a completely different - and more mature - side to their personality.
Alice and Tatiana are two girls who could actually rival the brothers and any of their past behaviour, who see Mike & Dave on TV talking about their search for a partner and decide that they're just the girls to accompany the boys to the island wedding. Their plan is successful but Mike and Dave soon figure out that there's more to the girls than they first thought.
There's nothing clever about this deliberately rude and vulgar comedy, but certain audiences will find it absolutely hilarious. Never afraid to head straight into the cheapest, nastiest gag, director Dan Mazar and writer John Phillips throw their odd-couple stars into a series of riotously awkward situations, usually involving nudity. And even if it's not as funny as it ought to be, at least there's some meaning to the chaos.
Zac Efron plays Jason, a bright young Atlanta lawyer who takes after his workaholic father (Dermot Mulroney). But Jason's grandfather Dick (Robert De Niro) remembers a more interesting Jason, before ruthless ambition took over his life. So after Grandma's funeral, Dick asks Jason to drive him down to Florida a week before Jason is due to marry the high-maintenance Meredith (Julianne Hough). Jason quickly discovers that Grandpa is intent on sowing some very wild oats, detouring their journey through Daytona at spring break, where they meet a couple of girls (Aubrey Plaza and Zoey Deutch) who are up for pretty much anything. What Jason doesn't know is that Grandpa is doing all of this to remind Jason who he really is, and to show him how to enjoy life instead of control it.
The script sometimes lays on this message rather thickly in between a series of deliberately jaw-dropping gross-out sequences. Predictably, drugs and sex abound, and most of the jokes are so corny and ludicrous that they're not remotely believable. Everything that happens strains to shock the audience, which means that nothing is actually very shocking. But while the story has no tension at all, it also manages to grab hold of the audience simply because the characters are so vividly played by the fearless Efron and De Niro. Neither role is much of a stretch, but they dive into even the yucky and/or naked moments with gusto, developing some chemistry in the process.

Dick Kelly has never been able to unwind, he's a retired army general and even though he has a foul-mouth, he lives a rather subdued life - well, far more subdued than he's like. After being given a new lease of life, Dick convinces his grandson to take him away, what Jason doesn't realise is Dick is planning a wild weekend at Daytona beach. The only problem with this is Jason is one week away from getting married to his bosses daughter and is perhaps one of the most unlikely people to ever visit somewhere like Daytona Beach.
On the way Dick and Jason make a few new friends. Dick is desperate to sow his wild oats whilst all Jason can think about is getting the trip over and done with. Jason despondently remarks that most grandads would be happy with 'toffee and socks' - alas not Dick.
Dirty Grandpa was directed by Dan Mazer who produced many of Sacha Baron Cohen's movies including Bruno, Borat and The Dictator. Mazer is also set to direct upcoming movie The Flash starring Ezrz Miller.
After her sister Shannon returns to Fresno, California following her stint in rehab for sex addiction (which in turn came after she was fired as a schoolteacher), Martha takes it upon herself to help her get a fresh start. She invites her to stay with her and gets her a job as a hotel maid in Fresno Suites where Martha also works. It isn't long before Shannon relapses big time, and her failure to maintain responsibility results in her accidentally killing a hotel guest, who also happens to be an Olympic hammer-thrower. She manages to persuade Martha to help hide the body, but before they can get very far they are discovered by a couple named Ruby and Gerald - and they want $25,000 in three days to stay quiet about the incident. The only option they have is to commit more crime, and so they rob a sex shop in order to flog the stock and make up the money. They're hardly professionals and they'll be lucky to escape this mess scot free, but maybe Shannon can finally learn to think about others before herself.

Aubrey Plaza - Aubrey Plaza laughing with a friend while out shopping in Beverly Hills - Hollywood, California, United States - Thursday 28th May 2015
American actress Aubrey Plaza who is best known for portraying the role of April Ludgate in the hit comedy series 'Parks and Recreation' was snapped on her cell phone while out shopping at The Grove in Los Angeles, California, United States - Thursday 26th March 2015
After seven seasons, it’s time to say our teary goodbyes to Pawnee
It’s all over for ‘Parks and Recreation’ sadly, as the acclaimed series ended its seven season run last night, with final episode, ‘One Last Ride’. The comedy had received numerous accolades during its tenure on NBC, as well as amassing a devoted fanbase and helping elevate the careers of stars Amy Poehler and Chris Pratt.
Amy Poehler aka Leslie Knope
Appearing on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ immediately after the final episode ended, the cast along with the show’s co-creator Michael Schur, dished on some of their storyline pitches which didn't end up making the final series.
When a priceless painting is stolen with the presumable intention of being sold to fund terrorist activities, England needs a hero. Enter, Mortdecai. Lord Charles Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) is a well-known and barely liked art dealer. He is also on the verge of bankruptcy. Well, 'on the verge' may be a little too generous. Mortdecai's extravagant lifestyle ensures that he is in desperate need of money - so much so, that he is willing to take on the job of tracking down and returning the painting. Or, perhaps, he'll steal it himself when he gets the chance. Either way, he'll have to get his hands on it first, and that is going to be far from easy. Or safe.

Without Aubrey Plaza's voice, Grumpy Cat was considerably grumpier and a bit more mysterious.
Tardar Sauce, better known around the internet as Grumpy Cat might look like the most annoyed, over-it-all animal to ever walk the earth, but don’t let it ever be said that she isn’t good to her fans – or the press for that matter. Ahead of her new movie – Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever – the perpetually dour cat hit San Francisco, did 11 interviews with various news outlets and, of course, a meet and greet with some of her 7 million+ devoted fans.
She might only have one facial expression, but it's pretty priceless.
The event was intended to coincide with Macy’s Holiday Windows, an annual event where adoptable cats and dogs are showcased in the department store's windows. Tardar Sauce (which, bar the borderline slur, might be an even better name than Grumpy Cat), even posed – posed – for some photos with her adoring fans. Forgetting the fact that she only actually has about one pose, this might be the cutest thing you’ve read all week.
Christmas is entirely overrated and Grumpy Cat's new movie will show you why.
Good morning (depending on your time zone), it’s time for some inner conflict re: Grumpy Cat’s upcoming Christmas movie. If you haven’t heard of the furious feline, crowned ruler of the internet, I’ll chalk that up to your internet privileges being a bit recent and send you off to get learned.
Introducing Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat.
For the rest of you... here’s the new trailer for Grumpy Cat’s Angriest Christmas.
Watch the trailer for 'Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever'.
Grumpy Cat is graduating from the computer screen to the television screen when she stars in a Lifetime movie entitled Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.

Shia LaBeouf is well-cast in this freewheeling combination of comedy, romance and action. He plays a scruffy guy with no plans and nothing to lose, lost in a strange culture while falling in love with the wrong woman. It's not a particularly original premise, and much of what happens feels wildly improbable, but the characters and situations are so entertaining that we can't help but hold on for the ride.
It opens in Chicago, where Charlie (LaBeouf) watches helplessly as his mother (Melissa Leo) dies in hospital, asking her what he should do next. Then there she is appearing to him, telling him to visit Bucharest. "That's weirdly specific," he replies, but he follows her advice, and on the flight over has another encounter with a dead person. This one asks him to look up his daughter Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood) and give her a message. Of course, Charlie is instantly smitten, but tries to ignore the fact that Gabi's psychopathic husband Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen) looks easily capable of murder. As does the mobster club owner Darko (Til Schweiger) Charlie has a run in with while out on the town with his youth hostel roommates, two chucklehead Brits (Rupert Grint and James Buckley).
As the title suggests, Charlie feels like death is inevitable for him, especially now that he seems to have caught whatever that kid from The Sixth Sense had. LaBeouf gives Charlie just the right mix of hapless loser and quick-thinking resourcefulness, and his chemistry with Wood is tetchy and fun to watch. Meanwhile, the scene-stealing supporting stars Mikkelsen, Schweiger, Grint and Buckley add a terrific mixture of comedy silliness and dark peril. This seems to be director Fredrik Bond's main goal here: to blend genres from grim drama to sweet romance to goofy slapstick to Taken-style action violence.
