“Check out this unearthed 1977 letter from Clint Eastwood to film critic Andrew Sarris, wherein Eastwood thanks Sarris for his Village Voice article on the “Dirty Harry” franchise, titled “Is Harry Too Dirty?” Eastwood gets to expound on the perceived messages in his films, complaining that ones with anti-capital punishment agendas like “Hang ‘Em High” got little media attention, while vigilante crime classic “Dirty Harry” and its sequels — which are about, in his words, “concern for the victim” — results in Pauline Kael calling fascism.”

Title: Best Night Ever Directors: Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer Starring: Crista Flanagan, Desiree Hall, Samantha Colburn, Eddie Ritchard Filmmakers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have been accused of plenty of crimes against cinema in their careers, so one might not think that their latest effort, “Best Night Ever,” would necessarily hold much surprise. As the writer-directors behind slapdash spoofs like “Date Movie,” “Disaster Movie,” “Meet the Spartans” and others — overwhelmingly critically panned, all — they’ve traded in creatively bankrupt, stick-poke, air-quote satire for more than a half-dozen years. And yet “Best Night Ever” is notable, in that it’s essentially the duo’s first nominally original, non-directly-referential screenplay. So does the [ Read More ]

We’ve been hearing for a while now that different filmmakers want to make a female version of The Expendables, with at least two competing projects bubbling away in development. One of them – Millennium Films’ The ExpendaBelles – has a director in the shape of Legally Blonde/Killers’ Robert Luketic.And yes, the title – which sounds like something spoof addicts Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg would use to describe whatever rip-off mockery they're already working on – is apparently hanging around, still locked on to the script from Blonde duo Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah.There is also a basic plot line out there via Deadline, so get a load of this: “When America’s Navy SEALs are wiped out trying to penetrate the island lair of a deadly despot who has captured one of the world’s top nuclear scientists, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as the »
Though it’s an unwatchable disaster in all other respects, “Best Night Ever” boasts two accomplishments, which contemporaneously speaking, make it something of a cinematic milestone: it by far makes worse use of “found footage” than possibly any movie ever, and it answers yes to the question of whether or not filmmakers can score a movie exclusively with even-more-horrible ripoffs of Lmfao’s already-horrible “Party Rock Anthem.” A raunchy but admittedly earnest imitation of “Bridesmaids” and “Bachelorette,” the project marks the first “original” project from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the consistently untalented purveyors of spoof movies like “Date Movie, »

Anything that happens in Vegas. Stays in Vegas.
Hilarious comedy “Best Night Ever” is another movie about a group of friends partying in Las Vegas and obviously things do go wrong.
This is the first original comedy from directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the team that directed spoofs like “Vampires Suck,” “Disaster Movie, and “Meet the Spartans.” However, this movie does sort of mock “The Hangover,” “Project X,” “Spring Breakers,” and “Bridesmaids.”
During the film’s press day earlier this week, actresses Desiree Hall, Samantha Colburn, Eddie Ritchard and Crista Flanagan joined Latino-Review for an interview in a limo. As we’re riding around the city, we talked about the crazy scenes, Las Vegas activities, shooting in public, cut scenes and even trying to order a salad from burger restaurant In N’ Out.
“Best Night Ever” is out in some theaters in major theaters today. The film is also »

In Best Night Ever, the raunchy comedy from directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer and Blumhouse Productions, a bachelorette party turns out to be way more than anyone bargained for. Bride-to-be Claire (Desiree Hall), her sister Leslie (Samantha Colburn), the fun-loving Zoe (Eddie Ritchard) and quirky new friend Janet (Crista Flanagan) have a series of unexpected adventures during what quickly turns into the wildest night in bachelorette party history, all caught on tape. At the film’s press day, co-stars Desiree Hall, Samantha Colburn, Eddie Ritchard and Crista Flanagan talked about how they got involved with Best Night Ever, what drew them to this project, when they realized they all got along, how difficult it was to get through some of the scenes without laughing, all of the intense nudity, how far they’re really to go in the name of comedy, what Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer were like as directors, »

Serial spoofers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (“Meet the Spartans,” “Disaster Movie”) hit rock bottom last year while scraping the bottom of the barrel with “The Starving Games.” But that hasn’t stopped the writing-directing duo from digging even deeper. Although “Best Night Ever,” their latest effort, is billed as their first “original” feature, this aggressively frenetic but dismally unfunny farrago plays like a found-footage version of “Bridesmaids” meet “The Hangover.” It seems painfully obvious that, instead of satirizing other, better movies, Friedberg and Seltzer have opted this time to merely imitate them. The end result could be their lowest grosser ever.
Shot semi-guerrilla-style in various Nevada and California locales over a three-week period, “Best Night Ever” details the girls-gone-wild misadventures of four young women during an ill-starred all-night bachelorette party in Las Vegas. Bride-to-be Claire (Desiree Hall) is accompanied by her snobbish sister Leslie (Samantha Colburn), party-hearty buddy Zoe »

Jason (Zac Efron) is an asshole. Seriously, just ask his friends Daniel (Miles Teller) and Mikey (Michael B. Jordan), they say it to his face. Now I'm not going to go into all the ways he's an asshole, just a few instances pertaining to the plot of That Awkward Moment to get us started. To begin, Jason keeps what he refers to as a "roster" of women so he's never without a booty call only minutes away. You'd think things would change as he's just started a new relationship with Ellie (Imogen Poots), but despite their first encounter ending in a bout between the sheets (after which he ran out of her house, mistaking her for a high society hooker), she wants to take things a little slower if they're going to actually date. No problem, Jason will take her out, send her on her way, go home and have »

Later this year, Mel Brooks’ brilliant homage to the Universal monster movies Young Frankenstein turns 40. Having spawned a successful Broadway musical and inspired countless other spoofs, this send-up of the original Frankenstein films remains the gold standard against which many comedies are judged. Rightfully so. If only Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer paid more attention to what makes it good, we wouldn’t be plagued by so many terrible spoofs out there now. The Blu-ray of Young Frankenstein features Brooks’ frank commentary of the film, examining the contributions of co-writer Gene Wilder as well as many fond memories of the cast – most of whom are no longer with us. Brooks may have changed direction from filmmaking to work on the Broadway stage in recent years, but his expertise at making a timeless comedy is detailed here.
