Review: TAG Isn't It

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we get old because we stop playing.” That is the quote that validates five childhood friends to sustain a high-stakes, no-holds-barred game of tag for a lifetime. George Bernard Shaw originally said...

Sundance 2018 Interview: David Wain Beautifully Dreams A FUTILE AND STUPID GESTURE

[David Wain at Sundance 2018. Photo credit: copyright 2018 Zach Gayne.] The biopic or docudrama is one of the most fascinating, if not tickling, film genres. Unlike most other genres, whether a biopic succeeds with flying colors in capturing, or...

Review: CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS: THE FIRST EPIC MOVIE Doesn't Stink

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, as fun as it is and wants to be, is an all-too-obvious case of "the emperor has no clothes." Or in this case, “the super-hero has quite limited clothes”. Perhaps he left them in...

Review: VACATION Is A Trip Worth Taking

Vacation, a continuation of sorts from the series of National Lampoon associated flicks from the 80s and 90s, is far better than it has any right to be. The trailer, for one, looked appalling - a series of hackneyed jokes...

Ed Helms To Wear The Badge In Paramount's NAKED GUN Reboot

Paramount is going to reboot their Naked Gun franchise and Ed Helms (The Hangover trilogy) is going to portray the role of Frank Drebin, once portrayed by Canadian comedy legend Leslie Nielsen. Thomas Lennon and R. Ben Garant (Night at...

Review: THE HANGOVER PART III Is Barely a Comedy

Remember how The Hangover Part II was a lukewarm rehash of The Hangover, almost beat-for-beat the same story, with little originality? Todd Phillips evidently heard our complaints and has addressed them in The Hangover Part III, which is nothing...

Interview: ScreenAnarchy Talks to HANGOVER III's Ken Jeong

Ken Jeong may often play a lunatic on both big and small screen, but in person it's quite disarming to see just how calm and considerate he comes across. While he got his big screen start in Judd Apatow's...

Who Gave That Man A Giraffe? First Teaser For THE HANGOVER PART III Arrives.

There's really not much point in saying anything about this. By this stage of the game you are already fully aware of whether you have any interest in another Hangover movie from Todd Phillips et al. All there really is...

JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME Review

Jason Segel and Ed Helms experience a wild day of self-discovery and low budget indie cred in the Flying Duplass Brother's "Jeff, Who Lives at Home". Segel is Jeff, a thirty-year old softhearted stoner, content to an existence of...

Jason Segel And Ed Helms In The Trailer For The Duplass Brothers' JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME

Never having been a particular fan of the Duplass Brothers - not that I dislike them, I'd simply never seen one of their films at this point - their latest effort came as a pleasant surprise at the tail end...

TIFF 2011: JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME Review

Jeff's life, it must be said, has not turned out the way he may have hoped. Thirty years old, a bit overweight, and unemployed, Jeff (Jason Segel) lives in his mother's basement where he spends his days smoking a bong...

Cute PSA Hypes the Upcoming CEDAR RAPIDS DVD/Blu Ray Release

Fox PR passed along this cute PSA for the June 21st DVD/Blu release of the Ed Helms comedy, Cedar Rapids. This is a title that, for various reasons (disinterest not among them, actually) I was unable to catch during its...

THE HANGOVER PART II Review

Years ago, while visiting a local wolf sanctuary, I noticed how the captive wolves tended to do nothing but meticulously pace their pen, the exact same path, the exact same way, over and over again. Maybe the first time...

CEDAR RAPIDS review

The new comedy "Cedar Rapids" strives to be many things. It presents itself as a fish-out-of-water comedy, but is actually an underdog freak show of sorts. It presents itself as the latest quirky "mini-major" indie comedy, vying for that...

CEDAR RAPIDS: An Innocent Man in Rowdy Middle America (Review)

(The film opens tomorrow in limited release in Toronto, New York, and Los Angeles.)With its crude humor, abundance of stereotypes, and naive-beyond-belief protagonist, played by Ed Helms, Cedar Rapids is as likely to provoke rolled eyeballs as it is to...

Sundance 2011: Ed Helms Takes The Lead In CEDAR RAPIDS

It's taken him a little while but I think it's safe to say that over the past several years Ed Helms has been on the road to becoming one of the consistently funniest men in America. The key to his...
