Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Channel LUCY in New DUMB AND DUMBER TO Posters

by     Posted 17 days ago

dumb-and-dumber-too-slice

Two brand new Dumb and Dumber To posters just popped up and rather than show Jim Carrey’s Lloyd Christmas and Jeff Daniels’ Harry Dunne in the middle of some crazy antics, like hanging with Butthole, sharing a bike made for one or driving that crazy dog grooming van, the pair is parodying Lucy.  Yes, the recent Scarlett Johansson release, Lucy.  It seems like an odd choice, but there are limited options when you consider that they can only pull this kind of thing with a Universal film.  Lucy is also fresh in our minds and one of the studio’s higher openers of the year, so it does make some sense.  Perhaps The Purge: Anarchy will be next.

According to the posters, the average person uses 10% of their brain capacity.  Hit the jump to check out what Lloyd and Harry accomplish using just 1%.  Dumb and Dumber To will make its way into theaters on November 14th and also stars Rachel Melvin, Kathleen Turner, Brady Bluhm, Laurie Holden, Steve Tom and Rob Riggle.

New DUMB AND DUMBER TO International Trailer Is Just as Comically Stupid with French Subtitles

A new Dumb and Dumb To international trailer has gone online, and it’s about as intentionally idiotic as you’d expect.  The follow-up takes place 20 years after the events of the first film, with Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) setting out on a road trip in order to find the child Harry never knew he had.  There are a few bits of footage that weren’t in the domestic trailer, and I think the movie could be entertaining.  I don’t know if it will be as funny as the original (comedy sequels rarely are), but I’ve already gotten some good laughs from these trailers.

Hit the jump to check out the new Dumb and Dumber To trailer.  The film opens November 14th, and also stars Rachel Melvin, Kathleen Turner, Brady Bluhm, Laurie Holden, Steve Tom, and Rob Riggle.

First DUMB AND DUMBER TO Trailer: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Are Back [Updated with Images]

Universal Pictures has released the first Dumb and Dumber To trailer for directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s comedy sequel.  The follow-up takes place 20 years after the events of the first film, with Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) setting out on a road trip in order to find the child Harry never knew he had.  As it turns out, that child is a daughter, and that daughter is quite attractive, enough to stir long-dormant feelings of love in Lloyd’s poor dumb heart.  There’s a whole range of comedy on display here, from dumb, to dumber, to downright gross, but it’s exactly what you might expect from the Farrellys. I just wasn’t quite expecting them to go … there.

Dumb and Dumber To also stars Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle, Rachel Melvin, and Steve Tom, and opens November 14th.  Hit the jump to watch the first Dumb and Dumber To trailer. [Update: We've also added some new images from the film after the jump.]

New Poster for DUMB AND DUMBER TO; First Trailer Premieres Tonight

by     Posted 83 days ago

dumb-and-dumber-to-poster

It only took twenty years, but this November we’re finally seeing a sequel to Dumb & Dumber.  The simple premise for the sequel, Dumb and Dumber To, has Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) setting out on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had.  The road trip premise structure served the first movie well, so I assume it will work a second time around.  At the very least, it looks like the guys were able to get the Shaggin’ Wagon back.

Hit the jump to check out the new Dumb and Dumber To poster; the first trailer will be released tonight on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  The film opens November 14th, and also stars Rachel Melvin, Kathleen Turner, Brady Bluhm, Laurie Holden, Steve Tom, and Rob Riggle.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were ahead of the fashion curve in the Farrelly Brothers’ 1994 comedy, Dumb & Dumber.  Twenty years later, the dimwitted duo is now ready to bring their colorful suits back into vogue with the long-awaited sequel, Dumb and Dumber To.  The first posters for Bobby and Peter Farrelly’s follow-up are more teasersthan anything else, but they serve as a reminder that the film is making its debut in style

Comedy sequels are very tricky to pull off, but directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly will be giving it their best shot with the follow-up Dumb and Dumber To this fall.  The first official image from the film has been released online, and I can’t stop laughing because it’s just so dumb—which is the point.  Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their roles from the 1994 film as Lloyd and Harry set out on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had.  It’s a simple premise, but the real promise of this film is seeing Carrey and Daniels back in the roles that helped launched them to superstardom.

KICK-ASS 2 Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 243 days ago

kick-ass-2-slice

Continuing the story not far from where the original Kick-Ass left off, the sequel Kick-Ass 2 finds its hero (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) teaming up with a group of ordinary citizens looking to rid the street of the criminal element.  Meanwhile, the recently orphaned (at his own hand) arch-villain Red Mist/The Motherfucker (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) plots revenge on the self-made superhero.  And Hit-Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), in what seems like training ground for her role in Carrie, gets to experience some good old-fashioned high school teen angst.

There’s a fine line to tread when it comes to making an action comedy.  When it’s successful, the result is Ghostbusters or Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.  When it’s not, the result is Kick Ass 2.  Hit the jump for my review of the film on Blu-ray.

Universal Pictures has set a firm release date for the comedy sequel Dumb and Dumber To.  The pic will open in theaters on November 14, 2014, where it will square off directly against the Brad Pitt fronted WWII actioner Fury.  It will also face considerable competition the following weekend where The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 will be unleashed just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels both return for the Dumb and Dumber follow-up, which also sees Peter and Bobby Farrelly back in the director’s chairs.  The official logline is as follows:

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To.  The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, take Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given.

Laurie Holden (The Walking Dead) and Rob Riggle also star, with a few surprise cameos planned as well.

It’s really happening, you guys.  Production is underway on the sequel to Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s 1994 comedy classic Dumb and Dumber, and the first images of Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels back in character have been revealed by none other than Carrey himself.  It’s pretty amazing that, nearly 20 years later, those costumes and haircuts bring Harry and Lloyd right back like they never left.  Carrey and Daniels look excellent, and I really can’t wait to see this thing in theaters.  The Farrelly brothers return to direct, the story picks up in Rhode Island 18 years after the events of the first film, and The Walking Dead’s Laurie Holden recently landed the female lead.

KICK-ASS 2 Review

by     Posted 1 year, 17 days ago

kick-ass-2-slice

We make excuses when we’ve done something wrong, and Kick-Ass 2 is full of excuses.  It thinks it can excuse its misogyny because it has Hit-Girl.  It thinks it can excuse its misguided notion of heroism because the costumed characters occasionally do a non-violent good deed.  It thinks it can excuse the juvenile antics because it’s occasionally morose and “serious”.  And the action is a poor excuse for what director/co-writer Matthew Vaughn provided in the first movie.  Kick-Ass 2 writer-director Jeff Wadlow is all too happy to seize upon the violence and quirks of Vaughn’s film and discards anything that played up the joy of playing a superhero.

New posters have been released for Kick-Ass 2 and 300: Rise of an Empire.  The new Kick-Ass 2 poster continues the trend of just providing close-ups on the lead characters, although on this poster, the photoshop effects have smoothed out of Hit Girl’s’ face to an unsettling degree.  As for the 300: Rise of an Empire poster, it’s for Comic-Con and will presumably be given out at Legendary’s booth on the exhibition hall floor.  The poster proclaims, “Fear us!” to which I can only respond, “No.  I’m not afraid of the tragedy-mask-on-steroids.”

THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 1 year, 63 days ago

incredible-burt-wonderstone-steve-carell-steve-buscemi-olivia-wilde-slice

Man, what the hell happened with this movie?  This one could’ve been a new comedy classic.  The Incredible Burt Wonderstone has a cast of capable comedic actors playing new and old school Vegas magicians, which sounds like a perfect recipe for splitting the sides of audience members wide open.  The over-the-top goofiness of stage conjurers and the laughable edginess of “street” magic are ripe for satire, but even so, Burt Wonderstone is an uneven comedy that see-saws between perfectly tolerable and hysterical.  Will Warner Bros.’ Blu-ray release win over our home video hearts?  Find out after the jump.

TOP 5: WHITE HOUSE DOWN, THE CONJURING Set Visit, THE HEAT, Jim Carrey Declines to Promote KICK-ASS 2, 2013 Saturn Awards Interviews

by     Posted 1 year, 64 days ago

Well said, Matt Goldberg. In the opening sentences of his review of The Heat (linked after the jump), our Managing Editor/resident film reviewer dropped some serious truth regarding female lead films, their often unfair characterization as “the female [insert hit movie here]“, and how ridiculous it is that it has taken this long to get our better halves at the forefront of a genre that has been around for years. I say this not because I feel like Matt needs my approval and/or defense, but because it’s thoughtful writing like this that makes me both a proud contributor and eternal fan of the site.

All high-fiving aside, this week’s Top 5 includes White House Down interviews with Jamie Foxx, Channing Tatum, and more, Dave’s The Conjuring set visit recap, The Heat interviews with Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, and director Paul Feig, Jim Carrey‘s announcement that he won’t be promoting Kick-Ass 2, and interviews from the 2013 Saturn Awards red carpet with the likes of Joss Whedon and Shane Black. A brief recap and link to each makes its home after the jump.
