Revisit Your Favorite Dog-Shaped Van In New TV Spot for 'Dumb and Dumber To'

25 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

They're back! Harry and Lloyd, played by original stars Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey, have returned for "Dumb and Dumber To" (a whopping twenty years after the first movie), and judging by a new TV spot, the silliness has not only returned in a big way but looks like it might be even more effective than the first time around.

The little teaser starts off with the super annoying "Mockingbird" song from the original film, before running through brief details of the film's plot (Lloyd and Harry go on a cross-country mission to track down Harry's long lost daughter) and giving us a whole bunch of goofy nonsense. To quote Lloyd: I like it a lot!

Original filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly return for the sequel, which also stars Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle and, in a cameo role, Jennifer Lawrence (playing a younger version of Turner's character). Maybe »

Stars and Science Align for Stand Up To Cancer

6 September 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the late afternoon of Sept. 5, celebrities, researchers and others interested in fighting for our health merged at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for the fourth biennial fundraiser for Stand Up To Cancer – an event that executive producer Gwyneth Paltrow called a “labor of love for the entertainment community.”

The one-hour event, which started at 5 p.m. in Los Angeles, was aired commercial-free on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. It also aired on broadcast and cable outlets in the U.S. and Canada and was streamed live on both Hulu and Yahoo. (Mike Myers assured the audience of this during his segment when he said technical difficulties wouldn’t allow him throw to next presenter Ben Stiller, who was in Toronto. “Evidently, lightening has struck something in Toronto, because I am doomed never to have a live telecast without controversy,” the comedian said, referencing his time on stage with Kanye West »

‘Let’s Be Cops’ Review

28 August 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr., Nina Dobrev, Andy Garcia, Rob Riggle, James D’Arcy, Keegan-Michael Key, Jonathan Lajoie, Tom Mardirosian, Natasha Leggero | Written by Luke Greenfield, Nicholas Thomas | Directed by Luke Greenfield

There are few things as quietly distressing and disappointing to the film fan as seeing people you like and admire feature in movies that are total turd. Such is the case with Let’s Be Cops. I really like Jake Johnson. If you read my Frightfest review of Creep you’ll probably have noticed that I spent about a third of that gushing about Safety Not Guaranteed, the Johnson-starring offbeat dramedy in which he is really good as a louche journalist. He is also really good in New Girl. So good, in fact, that he pretty much carried the show for the first half season it takes to get used to how annoying Zooey Deschanel is in it. »

Let's Be Cops review: Let's not...

28 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Luke Greenfield; Screenwriters: Luke Greenfield, Nicholas Thomas; Starring: Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr, Nina Dobrev, Andy Garcia, Rob Riggle, James D'Arcy, Keegan-Michael Key; Running time: 104 mins; Certificate: 15

The arrival of Let's Be Cops, a comedy about two no-hopers who don uniforms, buy a used squad car off eBay and pose as police (hijinks naturally ensue), could not feel more ill-timed considering it comes in the same month as the fatal shootings in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent civil unrest. With blanket media coverage questioning the competency and culpability of police, do we really need to be seeing a film that treats the job as a lark? Does anybody really aspire to be a police offer right now?

Awkward timing, however, doesn't really disguise the fact that Let's Be Cops is an absolute stinker from start to finish. If the Jump Street movies are shining examples of how to successfully »

Let’s Be Cops Review

26 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In a summer that seems to be lacking in truly great, original comedies, Let’s Be Cops certainly has the potential to break the mould and offer something a little different. With a host of great weapons in its arsenal, including two rising stars in Damon Wayans, Jr. and Jake Johnson, we also see them joined by the talented leading lady Nina Dobrev, and a revered Andy Garcia as the film’s chief antagonist. The premise itself is the stuff of comedy gold – two ne’er-do-wells from Los Angeles dress up like cops and use the power that comes along with the position to do everything from smoking marijuana in public, getting into trendy night clubs, and turn the tables on those who’ve wronged them in the past. But halfway through this film, it simply becomes all too familiar.

Let’s Be Cops Review

25 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Luke Greenfield.

Cast: Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr., Rob Riggle, Andy Garcia, Nina Dobrev, James D’Arcy, Keegan-Michael Key.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 104 minutes.

Synopsis: Two friends attend a costume party as cops and quickly realise they can pass for the real thing. After a few pranks they soon become involved in a serious and dangerous case.

Let’S Be Cops is a one joke movie, luckily it happens to be a very funny joke. With Johnson and Wayans Jr. coming fresh from a few successful years on hit TV show New Girl (granted Wayans Jr. has been more of a guest star), it’s time for these two funnymen to break into the big and beautiful world of movies. Although Let’S Be Cops is far from perfect, it’s a simplistic film that allows the two stars to demonstrate what they are capable of.
