I actually like raunchy R-rated comedies quite a bit, so please don't take this criticism as coming from someone who's offended. I'm not. I'm just not laughing. I'd still go see The Wedding Ringer when it comes out in January, but it won't be based off this trailer that's for sure. When I started this post, I hadn't actually seen anything from the film yet (including the earlier trailer) and this red band trailer on its own had me almost ready to write the whole thing off. But then I went back and watched the green band trailer and actually laughed. There, I saw a movie that had some jokes and a sense of character. Here, all I see is every possible use of "fuck" at the marketing team's disposal, dumped into a trailer with little or no context. So I'm almost posting this as an experiment. I'm including the »

The Wedding Ringer has debuted an outrageous red band trailer chocked full of new footage and R-rated language just in time for the holiday season.
Josh Gad stars as Doug Harris, a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: He has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.
The diverse supporting cast is rounded out by Affion Crockett, Jorge Garcia, Dan Gill, Corey Holcomb, Ken Howard, Jenifer Lewis and Cloris Leachman, who gets the trailer started in an unexpectedly hilarious and vulgar way. »
Watch out, it’s another wedding hijinx and hilarity movie. And of course this one is about a groom (Josh Gad) who needs a best man for his wedding because he basically has no bffs. So he goes to Kevin Hart, who just happens to be in the fake best man business. Perfect. While it’s “strictly a business relationship,” you know these two are gonna be bromantic besties by the end of the film. Directed by Jeremy Garelick, the filmmaker behind Vince Vaughn’s underrated dramedy "The Break-Up," maybe there’s mild hope for this one to be more than just January comedy filler. The movie also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman, Jenifer Lewis, Mimi Rogers, and Olivia Thirlby. Here’s the official synopsis: Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two »

Earlier this week, Yahoo announced that season 6 of "Community" would get some much-needed new blood, with Paget Brewster and Keith David joining a cast that's lost Donald Glover, Chevy Chase and Yvette Nicole Brown in the last few years (not to mention prominent recurring players Jonathan Banks and John Oliver). Now, sometimes, late-in-life TV show cast changes and/or additions can be a death knell. "The X-Files" without Mulder (and then Scully) just isn't "The X-Files," and nobody much liked either Doggett or (especially) Reyes. Ditto "The Facts of Life" trying to swap in Cloris Leachman for Charlotte Rae, or "Welcome Back Kotter" thinking they could survive without John Travolta as Barbarino. Other times, though, a cast change can be just the shot in the arm a veteran show needs. "Law & Order" most famously made a science out of swapping actors in and out of its cast, but lots of »

Groovin’ High: Hawkes Nuanced Performance Elevates Albany Memoir
Despite taking home the best cinematography prize for Christopher Blauvet (who also provided superb camerawork on Kelly Reichardt’s 2013 title Night Moves) after its premiere at Sundance and snagging Elle Fanning a Best Actress award at the Karlovy Film Festival, Low Down is otherwise a rather unremarkable treatment of a slipping down life, bright lights dimmed by the self-induced depravity of drugs and alcohol. Told from the perspective of the teenage daughter of jazz pianist Joe Albany, the film is the first time feature from Jeff Preiss, heretofore a music video director (Mariah Carey’s “Emotions”) and a documentary cinematographer. Perhaps this explains why much of the film feels concerned with superficial detailing of a vintage time and era rather than it does as a chapter in a young woman’s life growing up with troubled yet notable parental figures.

In a night of top notch performances, with Jonathan Bennett and Michael Waltrip delivering their best dances yet, it was the always-entertaining Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson who really won the evening.
While they might have had the dance to beat, it wasn't the highlight of the evening! Check out the best, worst and weirdest moments from this week's Dancing With The Stars.
Jonathan Bennett was told he was in jeopardy, and then immediately had to get up and dance to Pitbull's Men In Black 3 song "Back In Time." So, in the vein of Men in Black, they donned government issue suits and Jonathan delivered his best performance ever. Sure, the set designers might have confused Men In Black with The Matrix, but it was pretty spectacular.

Scouts vs. Zombies is one living dead tale that won’t stay still. The film was recently pushed out of its March 13th slot by Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, with Paramount penciling in the coming-of-age zombie movie for February 20th. But now the film has shambled to another release date that’s fitting for the film, though it means fans will have to wait longer to see it.
According to Box Office Mojo, Scouts vs. Zombies will now come out on October 30th, 2015. Directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), Scouts vs. Zombies stars Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, Sarah Dumont, David Koechner, Cloris Leachman, Halston Sage, and Patrick Schwarzenegger.
The story follows “three scouts who, on the eve of their last camp out, discover the true meaning of friendship when they attempt to save their town from a zombie outbreak.” We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

Check out this week's best and most provocative options for streaming on the web. How many times have you seen "Fletch"? Add another hundred to it this month. Netflix "Arrow", season 2 Catch up on the second season before the third premieres tonight. We can never do enough to tell Katie Cassidy we're sorry about that "Melrose Place" revamp. "Jay Mohr: Funny for a Girl" One of the bright spots in the dreaded '94-'95 season of "SNL" was the appearance of Jay Mohr, whose salty, smirky humor is somehow more impish than Norm MacDonald's. Fun fact I often forget: He is married to Nikki Cox. "Raising Hope", season 4 Shhh, secret: We're running a list of the "50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 Years" feature next week.

Shaun of the Dead's Shaun (Simon Pegg) and Ed (Nick Frost) return in an animated form with the first clip from Phineas and Ferb's Halloween special, entitled "Night of the Living Pharmacists", airing Saturday, October 4 at 8 Pm Et during Disney Channel's Monstober block of programming.
We repoted in August that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost will voice their characters from the 2004 zombie comedy, but little was known about the story at that time. This episode centers on a new device created by Heinz Doofenshmirtz (Dan Povenmire), which accidentally turn everyone in Danville into "Doof-zombies" who run rampant all over town. While traditional zombies have to bite their victims, Doofenshmirtz's machine allows the transformation to be much easier.
Should I be watching Phineas and Ferb? I assumed it was a kids-only thing due to the rather goofy animation and the fact that it airs on the Disney Channel, but if Shaun and Ed from Shaun of the Dead are on it, it’s got to have a more mature appeal too, right? (Plus I’m mildly amused by the fact that the show features a pet platypus named Perry.) I’ve never seen a single episode of the show so I don’t really know, but the Halloween season special, “Night of the Living Pharmacists,” actually sounds like a lot of fun and it’s got Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in it as well. Hit the jump to check out their cameo in a Phineas and Ferb clip from the Halloween episode. According to IGN the episode is inspired by Night of the Living Dead and involves »

The episode is called "Night of the Living Pharmacists," and it is obviously inspired by the classic zombie movie, Night of the Living Dead. In the episode, "Doofenshmirtz's latest "-inator" accidentally turns the citizens of Danville into contagious Doof-zombies who run rampant all over town."
The episode also includes the voices of George Romero, Noah Wyle, Bella Thorne, Ariel Winter, and Cloris Leachman. The one-hour episode airs Saturday, October 4th at 8pm on Disney Channel. It looks like it going to be a really fun episode.

The latest trailer for upcoming comedy The Wedding Ringer is now out to view and comes with a surprising amount of laughs. Starring Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, it sees a best man for hire (Hart) who attends weddings to make the groom look better. His services are employed by Gad, who needs an entire entourage to fill out the roles of his groomsmen ready for his wedding in 2 weeks. Of course there are rules which include not becoming friends, but we’re sure such rules are there to be broken, as well as Gad learning a little about himself through this unreal experience.
Judging by the trailer, which hopefully isn’t all the best bits, this looks like a well balanced farce with enough funny lines and slapstick humour too. However, we’re also sure that the plot will develop in a very predictable way.

Doug (Josh Gad) has a dilemma: His wedding to Gretchen (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) is looming, but the nerdy guy has no best man. Enter Jimmy (Kevin Hart), owner of Best Man Inc, which provides just the deceptive service our hero needs. Can they pull it off — and maybe, just maybe, even become actual pals? Alan Ritchson, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers and Ken Howard star in The Wedding Ringer for director Jeremy Garelick, who co-wrote the script with Jay Lavender. Screen Gems opens the comedy January 16 for Martin Luther King Day weekend — the same holiday frame that Hart’s Ride Along dominated with a record-breaking opening this year.

If you could have any celebrity at your wedding, Kevin Hart would probably be toward the top of your wish list. The "Ride Along" star brings the party to life for "Frozen" co-star Josh Gad in "The Wedding Ringer" Hart plays Jimmy Callahan, an escort of sorts who offers his services as a fun-loving best man to grooms-to-be who lack social skills. When Harris (Gad) hires him, all sorts of shenanigans ensue, involving faked photos, "Goonies" lookalikes, extra testicles and flaming grannies. The latest trailer features a lot of footage not seen in the initial one. Watch the trailer here: It also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman, Jennifer Lewis, Mimi Rogers and Olivia Thirlby. "The Wedding Ringer" opens January 16, 2015. »
