Tyler Labine has kept us laughing out loud throughout his career, both on the small screen with television shows like Reaper and in theaters with movies like Tucker & Dale Vs Evil. Now, he gets one of his biggest roles to date in writer/director Rob Pearlstein’s Someone Marry Barry.
In the film, Labine plays the title character, an obnoxious and politically incorrect man who seriously lacks a filter between mind and mouth. As much as his friends (including Damon Wayans, Jr., Hayes MacArthur and Thomas Middleditch) care about him, they have long since grown tired of his disgusting antics and decide to find him a wife so that she can deal with him instead. However, Barry ends up finding the love of his life on his own in Melanie Miller (Lucy Punch), a woman every bit his match.
Recently, we had the chance to sit down with Labine for »

Sometimes, two great performers are all you need to make a movie engaging, and in the romantic comedy "Someone Marry Barry" that's the case with talented comic actors Tyler Labine and Lucy Punch. And just in time for Valentine's Day, we have a clip that highlights the start of a raunchy relationship. In the film, Labine plays the titular Barry, whose boundary-free antics has been making life a living hell for his three best friends, so they come up with a solution: set him up with a girl who will tolerate his rude, obnoxious behaviour. But they get more than they bargained for when Barry starts seeing Melanie, who is equally unguarded with her thoughts, emotions and bodily emissions. And in this clip, we see how famously the pair get one as they say goodbye at the end of their first date, with a conversation that covers such topics as masturbation and yeast infections. »

To be fair, the sorta-raunchy rom-com "Someone Marry Barry" is shamelessly and unapologetically up front about how much it owes and rips off from the Judd Apatow oeuvre. And we're not just talking about the four-bros-with-women-and-life-problems premise. Whether it's nodding to the speed dating sequence from "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," or even the detail that the titular character lives off money he earned after falling into an open manhole (not unlike Seth Rogen's Ben from "Knocked Up" who received a settlement after his foot was run over by a mail truck), it's clear writer/director Rob Pearlstein—Oscar nominated for his 2004 short "Our Time Is Up"—has spent some time watching a very selective batch of movies. And as we saw last month with "That Awkward Moment," if you don't understand what makes Apatow's films work, the results can disastrous. And while "Someone Marry Barry" is missing some key ingredients, »

Networking. Audience outreach. Opening up new markets. They sound like key words in an Mba program catalog, but those are three of the mandates of European Film Promotion.
Founded in 1997, Efp is an international web of orgs from 34 European countries promoting and marketing the continent’s cinema around the world. But the challenges that Efp faces go beyond putting up a stand at Berlin. Reaching new and young audiences, creating opportunities for producers to initiate co-productions, supporting marketing and sales and finding audiences for European films in emerging markets are its priorities.
The sexiest program that Efp backs is Shooting Stars, which spotlights 10 actors and puts them in the middle of the international film business at the Berlinale through panels and meetings with casting directors, producers, directors and the press. There’s also a Shooting Stars channel on YouTube.

Squirrel to the Nuts
Director: Peter Bogdanovich
Writer(s): Peter Bogdanovich, Louise Stratton
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
The past decade has seen director Peter Bogdanovich mostly in front of the camera rather than behind it, his last directorial effort being 2001′s The Cat’s Meow. Needless to say, we’re always excited to see anything with his name on it, especially considering the screenplay was co-written by his ex-wife Louise Stratton (which is its own special story). A fantastic cast and a plot that sounds vaguely like a spin off of Bullets Over Broadway, this promises to be one of 2014′s comedic highlights.
Gist: A married Broadway director falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and works to help her advance her career.

Tonight the second season of Kroll Show premieres. This means all your favorite characters from the first season will be back, because Kroll Show, unlike other sketch shows, focuses on telling longer stories about a handful characters, as opposed to self-contained or topical sketches. This season, for example, one of the girls of “Publizity” gets pregnant, canine plastic surgeon Dr. Armond gets involved in a murder mystery, and Bobby Bottleservice moves into “Gigolo House.” All the while Gil and George (Kroll and John Mulaney) just want to put too much tuna fish in front of people. Here, they pull that classic prank on Ben and Kate’s Lucy Punch. There’s entirely too much tuna fish. »
