Film Review: ‘Father Figures’

Twins don’t have to look alike, but in the dithering and maladroit road comedy “Father Figures,” Ed Helms and Owen Wilson play bickering brothers who are fraternal twins, and the casting doesn’t sit right; the two actors never convince us that they were baptized in the same physical or spiritual DNA. Helms is Peter Reynolds, a proctologist (are you laughing yet?), divorced and lonely, with a teen son who hates him. He’s supposed to be a miserable uptight crank, but since Helms comes off more like a Teddy Bear nerd, the characterization doesn’t quite parse. That said, he’s a major pill next to Owen Wilson, who is cast as yet another whiny-cooey-voiced Owen Wilson king of mellow — a dude who lives off his residuals from having served as the model for a sketch on a jar of barbecue sauce.

These two were raised by their devoted single mother, Helen ([link

Young Sheldon Review: Meemaw Tries (And Fails) To Teach Sheldon To Bluff

Young Sheldon is giving another familiar name in Sheldon’s world a new face. The only person Sheldon loves more in the world besides Amy and his mother is his Meemaw. First played by Academy Award nominated actress June Squibb on The Big Bang Theory, Meemaw is known as the person with a bit of a stronger hand who guided Sheldon. Yet she still had that sweetness about her every time she called her grandson ‘Moonpie’. Meemaw’s younger version is played by Designing Women‘s Annie Potts with equal parts hilarity and wise cracks. She has no nonsense answers for Sheldon, which

Film Review: ‘Amanda & Jack Go Glamping’

Film Review: ‘Amanda & Jack Go Glamping’
It was London everywoman Bridget Jones, in her most recent screen outing, who skeptically gave us cinema’s definitive verdict on “glamping,” that irksome term for upmarket camping in a fixed, fashionably furnished tent: “Calling him Gladolf Hitler,” she opined, “wouldn’t suddenly make us forget all the unpleasantness.” It’s not a view that is challenged, nor a quip that is remotely improved upon, in “Amanda & Jack Go Glamping,” a thin, sparkless romantic comedy that takes satirical aim at a host of current hipster-culture targets, before concluding that merely identifying them is droll enough.

Headlined somewhat bemusedly by David Arquette and Amy Acker, as a couple seeking to cure their marital doldrums at a rustic Texan retreat for the quinoa brigade, Brandon Dickerson’s scruffy Austin production has a communal, homemade quality of its own — though you’d gladly trade that for a few more laughs, not to mention a couple of extra character layers.

David Arquette & Amy Acker in 'Amanda & Jack Go Glamping' Trailer

Gravitas has debuted the trailer for an indie titled Amanda & Jack Go Glamping, which is playing at the Austin Film Festival this month. For those who don't know, the word "glamping" is an amalgamation of "glamorous camping", essentially describing luxurious camping in which you go stay in fancy places - in this case, a "yurt". David Arquette and Amy Acker stars as a married couple who decided to go "glamping" in hopes of reigniting their spark for each other. Of course, things get weird and crazy, and yeah you know how these films go. This also stars Adan Canto, Nicole Elliott, Daniel Ross Owens, Chris Carpenter, Gustavo Gomez, and June Squibb. It's not really my kind of indie comedy, but it might be up your alley.

Poster and trailer for comedy Amanda & Jack Go Glamping starring Amy Acker and David Arquette

Ahead of its release next month, a new poster and trailer have been release for writer-director Brandon Dickerson’s upcoming comedy Amanda & Jack Go Glamping which stars Amy Acker, David Arquette, Adan Canto, and June Squibb; check them out below…

With his marriage on rocky ground, dejected one-hit author Jack Spencer (David Arquette, Never Been Kissed) agrees to go “glamping” with his wife, Amanda (Amy Acker, Marvel’s “The Gifted”), in search of a spark. When they realize they’ve been double booked with honeymooning hipsters and the handsome, eco-friendly landowner, Nate (Designated Survivor’s Adan Canto), enters the picture, a romantic getaway turns into a group ordeal. Jack must learn to get over himself as he dives deep off the grid into a comedic exploration of love, failure, and relevance with some help from miniature donkeys and the sage wisdom of local Jude (Academy Award® nominee June Squibb).

Amy Acker and David Arquette Go on a Camping Trip From Hell in 'Amanda & Jack Go Glamping' Trailer (Exclusive)

Amy Acker and David Arquette Go on a Camping Trip From Hell in 'Amanda & Jack Go Glamping' Trailer (Exclusive)
There's not much in the way of glamour in Amanda & Jack Go Glamping, an upcoming rom-com in which David Arquette and The Gifted’s Amy Acker star as an unhappily married couple taking a much-needed vacation at a "camping" resort. As you can see in the movie’s trailer, exclusively debuting on Et, there are plenty of hipsters, llamas and one shirtless Adonis of a landowner (Adan Canto), though.

"We are supposed to be saving our marriage," Acker’s Amanda laments to her downer husband at one point in the preview, while Arquette's Jack taunts back, "You are not staying here for us. You’re staying for Magic Mike."

The romantic comedy marks a reunion for Acker and writer-director Brandon Dickerson, as she previously starred in his 2011 drama, Sironia. Amanda & Jack Go Glamping was loosely inspired by Dickerson’s own experiences at the very same glamping retreat, Green Acres, and the movie

Father Figures Trailer Has Owen Wilson and Ed Helms on a Dad Hunt

Father Figures Trailer Has Owen Wilson and Ed Helms on a Dad Hunt
Perhaps you haven't heard of Father Figures? That's because when the first trailer dropped more than a year ago, it was called Bastards. The team behind this comedy wised up, changing the title and giving you some time to forget. Now, they have cobbled together a new trailer, for better or worse, and here we are.

Arriving from Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment, the latest footage from Father Figures promises a Christmas comedy that will bring you back home. The movie opens on December 22, and it stars two heavy weights in the genre who've not been so busy lately. The movie teams the great Ed Helms with the always welcome Owen Wilson for the right amount of charm. It doesn't really matter how good or bad the script is, these guys will probably carry the material pretty far on their own.

Ed Helms-Owen Wilson Comedy ‘Bastards’ Changes Title to ‘Father Figures’

Ed Helms-Owen Wilson Comedy ‘Bastards’ Changes Title to ‘Father Figures’
Warner Bros. has decided to lose “Bastards” as the title for its Ed Helms-Owen Wilson road comedy, opting instead for “Father Figures.”

The studio is keeping the Dec. 22 release date for the Alcon Entertainment production.

J.K. Simmons and former pro football player Terry Bradshaw, who is playing himself, are potential father figures to Wilson and Helms’ characters — who are brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father.

The brothers’ mother Helen Baxter (portrayed Glenn Close) admits at her wedding that she stretched the truth about their father dying when they were young. “I’m not sure who your father was,” she says in the first trailer for the film.

Ving Rhames, June Squibb, Katt Williams, and model Jessica Gomes — who plays the love interest of Wilson’s character — also star.
