Let’s Be Cops: Did You Know … ? Here’s some fun trivia about Let’s Be Cops, starring Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr. and Rob Riggle. In the film, when Ryan (Johnson) and Justin (Wayans) make the decision to dress up as cops for a costume party, they take it to another level. As people start to mistake them for genuine cops, things get real, and they find themselves in the middle of an actual case. • Director and cowriter for Let’s Be Cops Luke Greenfield got the idea for the film when a costume designer gave him an authentic Los Angeles Police Department … Continue reading →

Dumb and Dumber To Movie Review

20 November 2014 11:49 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Dumb and Dumber To Director: Bobby Farrelly & Peter Farrelly Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathless Turner, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French. Dumb and Dumber Two or Dumb and Dumber Too? Either way the intentional typo reiterates the stupidity of our protagonists who are back after two decades. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have aged badly but more than their farcical out of date “dumb play,” the true problem of ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ lies in the script, drenched with language and coarsely vulgar gags. Twenty years since Dumb and Dumber’s first adventure, Harry finds out he has a daughter who was  [ Read More ]

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill crack up in '22 Jump Street' outtake

19 November 2014 9:17 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It turns out you weren't the only one who couldn't stop laughing during "22 Jump Street." Star Jonah Hill also had a hard time keeping a straight face, as evidenced in a new outtake featured on the film's new DVD and Blu-ray. Co-star Rob Riggle's bug-eyed prisoner routine makes Hill giggle so hard that he can't even finish one sentence, much to the amusement of Channing Tatum and Dave Franco. The best part of the video is that it shows the action from four different angles simultaneously. It's like film school, only the dirty words are bleeped out. Watch it on Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("The Lego Movie"), "22" also stars Ice CubePeter Stormare, Amber Stevens, Nick Offerman and Jillian Bell. The DVD and Blu-ray release also includes deleted and extended scenes, featurettes, audio commentary with Tatum, Hill, Lord and Miller, and "The Dramatic Interpretation »

Following Scoop: Michael Ealy Cast as Ryan Hardy's Next Nemesis

18 November 2014 3:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

We have a hunch that Almost Human‘s idealistic Dorian would be disappointed in Michael Ealy’s killer new role on The Following.

Ealy has been cast as a “brilliant, chameleon-like” murderer who’ll test Ryan Hardy’s limits, TVLine has learned.

The role is a leap from the actor’s last series-regular gig as an innocent, caring android in Fox’s cancelled sci-fi drama. His other TV work includes Common LawCalifornication and The Good Wife.

As previously reported, Hunter Parrish (Weeds) and Zuleikha Robinson (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) will join Ealy on the Fox thriller’s Season 3 cast roster. »

Hulu orders Billy Eichner comedy “Difficult People” from producer Amy Poehler Eichner and his "Billy on the Street” head writer Julie Klausner originally filmed their pilot about a pair of difficult friends for USA. “Peter Pan Live!” changes the “Ugg-a-Wugg” song so it won’t offend Native Americans After consulting with a Native American consultant, the “Peter Pan Live!” has changed “Ugg-a-Wugg” to “True Blood Brothers” and removed any phrases like “the brave noble red skin” from the lyrics.

Luther Remake Gets Pilot Deal at Fox

18 November 2014 9:14 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Detective Chief Inspector John Luther may soon put down stakes in the United States.

Fox has given a pilot commitment to an American adaptation of the popular British drama Luther, Variety reports.

Like the BBC original, Fox’s series would center on Luther — played by Idris Elba in the U.K. — and his travails as he solves crimes.

Luther creator Neil Cross will write the pilot’s script and executive-produce the project alongside 20th Century Fox Television, Chernin Entertainment, BBC Worldwide Productions and Elba.

As of now, however, Elba is not planning to reprise his Emmy-nominated role in the American Luther. »

Rob Riggle Comedy Pilot Lands at Fox

17 November 2014 6:29 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The ubiquitous Rob Riggle is planting his flag at Fox.

The project, which is based on the Austrian comedy series Braunschlag, follows the quirky inhabitants of a small, struggling town whose mayor (played by Riggle) is prepared to do anything to save his community.

Steve Hely (The Office, 30 Rock, American Dad) will executive-produce alongside Riggle.

10 indie sci-fi films to look out for in 2015

17 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for some less mainstream sci-fi films in the year ahead? Then here's our list of 10 genre movies to look out for in 2015...

If you've been keeping an eye on next year's schedules, you'll probably already know about some of the major sci-fi films due for release in 2015. Ridley Scott will leave Matt Damon stranded on the red planet in The Martian. Colin Trevorrow will unleash a new breed of dinosaurs in Jurassic World. George Miller will be bringing us his belated Mad Max sequel Fury Road, Neill Blomkamp will show off his robot sci-fi comedy Chappie, and then, of course, there's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But what about the smaller genre films, the ones that don't have the marketing budget of, say, Disney's Tomorrowland, or the brand recognition of Star Wars? Those are the kinds of films we're focusing on here: the lower budget, »

New Dumb And Dumber To Movie Delivered Ok Laughs,Messy Plotline & More

15 November 2014 8:08 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Universal Pictures released their new comedy flick, "Dumb And Dumber To" into theaters this weekend. I just watched it, and thought it was ok with a few good laughs here and there. However, there was a ton corny as hell stuff the they through into the mix. But overall, it kept me entertained. It stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin and Kathleen Turner. In the new flick, we start out seeing Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels), visiting his best friend, Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) at Baldy View Mental Hospital for the past 20 years. Lloyd has supposedly been committed there ever since his doomed romance with Mary Swanson (aka Samsonite). Harry finally end up telling Lloyd that he can't come visit him anymore due to him needing a new kidney and needing to take care of that. From there, Lloyd reveals that the entire, past 20 years of »

New ‘Dumb And Dumber To’ Movie Received Mostly Negative Reviews From Major Critics

15 November 2014 2:55 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Universal Pictures released their new comedy film, "Dumb And Dumber To" into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the major,top movie critics. It turns out that the film really missed the mark with these guys, only garnering up an overall 35 score out of a possible 100 across 31 reviews at the site. The film stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin and Kathleen Turner. We posted blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Ty Burr from the Boston Globe, gave it a "less than stellar" 63 score to start things off. He stated: "Everyone has piled into this dumber, sillier, more consistently funny reprise with an enthusiasm that’s infectious, and not in a low-grade medical way." Sara Stewart at the New York Post, gave it a 50 score, simply saying: "From time to time, it works." Susan Wloszczyna from, »

Best and Worst of 'Dumb and Dumber To'

15 November 2014 11:23 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After twenty long years, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have finally reunited with the Farrelly Brothers for more fart jokes, bad haircuts and dead birds in the belated "Dumb and Dumber To." Was it worth the wait? Carrey and Daniels appear to be having a great time, and newcomers Rob Riggle, Kathleen Turner, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin and a surprise guest (hint: it's not Jennifer Lawrence, unfortunately) are added to the silliness with mixed results.  The comedy sequel is No. 1 at the box office this weekend, but the critics haven't been very kind. You know what that means -- it's time for another Best and Worst list.  Check it out below. Do you agree with our take on "Dumb and Dumber To"? »

Dumb And Dumber To Review

15 November 2014 7:07 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Beware: this review does contain very minor spoilers, including quotes from the film.

They’re back… and dumber than ever.

After the complete turkey of a 2003 prequel that shall never be discussed again as well as studio politics holding up production for what seems like eons, fans of the cult classic finally got what they’ve been craving for the last twenty years: an honest to God sequel to Dumb and Dumber.

The original film made good on a simple premise: two innocently stupid wastes of space and brain matter headed on a cross country road trip on a quest to find love, only to get accidentally entangled in an FBI sting operation to catch a group of high profile kidnappers.

The new film stays almost completely true to this premise stopping somewhat short of a Hangover Part II encore, but very much loses the innocence bit. There »

Movie Review: Dumb and Dumber To

14 November 2014 8:16 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

What more can be said from a title like this. Dumb and Dumber To simply says it all. The film really is not a heck of a lot different that it’s predecessor Dumb and Dumber (1994). Okay, so this is the deal, if you’re a fan of the first film, you will most likely dig the second. It’s that kind of humor, where you wince at the grossness of any given shenanigan, but you follow it with a chuckle. Personally, I think comedy has progressed in a much more extensive way in the last twenty years, meaning what was funny then just somehow is not as funny now. Or maybe it’s just me and twenty years on, my sense of humor has changed.

Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are back at again twenty years later. Heading out on a road trip to find Harry’s daughter, »

Peter and Bobby Farrelly Talk Dumb And Dumber To, the First Film’s Cult Classic Status, Their 3 Hour and 40 Minute First Cut, Directing on Their Own and More

14 November 2014 2:49 PM, PST | | See recent news »

In Dumb and Dumber To, Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels) are back and as dumb as ever.  It’s been exactly 20 years and Lloyd has to get snapped out of the comatose state that he’s been in, so that the two best friends can go on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had, in order to help him with the kidney transplant that he desperately needs.  The zany sequel also stars Kathleen Turner, Laurie Holden, Rob Riggle, Rachel Melvin and Steve Tom. At the film’s press day, filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why Dumb and Dumber is thought of as a cult classic, why people feel so fondly about two lovable idiots, whether they ever got close to doing this sequel at any other point in time, over the 20 years since the first film, »

‘Dumb And Dumber To’ Review: Pete Hammond On The Silly Sequel

14 November 2014 8:54 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It only took 20 years for the Farrelly Brothers to come up with a true sequel to their 1994 hit, Dumb And Dumber, but as I say in my video review above, maybe they could have waited a while longer.

The film stars Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey as the dopey duo, this time trying to track down the long-lost daughter of one of them for a kidney transplant. From there, as they say, high-larity ensues.

Other notable cast members include Rob Riggle and Kathleen Turner, working from a script whose many credits include the Farrellys, Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, John Morris and Bennett Yellin. The film is produced by the Farrellys, Riza Aziz, Joey McFarland, Charles B. Wessler and Bradley Thomas. Universal Pictures is distributing. The film hits U.S. theaters today.

Watch my review. Are you planning on seeing the movie? Tell us what you think of it.

Film Review: 'Dumb and Dumber To'

14 November 2014 8:26 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Walking into the screening for Dumb and Dumber To I was really nervous. Was I about to get Phantom Menaced? After all, the first film came out when I was 11 and instantly became a favorite of mine. It sits somewhere in my Top 5 Comedies, alongside Planes, Trains, and Automobiles and Blazing Saddles and a couple of others. Over the years, the original 1994 film has become a hallowed classic amongst the people that grew up with it. Now here I am, at 31, about to sit down and watch Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels revisit these classic characters in a new caper. Oh boy...

I have good news:

It didn't suck!

No, really, it didn't. Right off the bat, the laughs started coming and it was clear to see that Carrey and Daniels were giving their all to make this thing fly. Makes sense, too, considering they never had to make this at all. »

Film Review: ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Too Dumb to Be Funny

14 November 2014 3:36 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – “Dumb And Dumber To” is an exercise in diminishing returns. Jim Carrey and the Farrelly Brothers expend twice the effort for less than a third of the laughs. It benefits greatly from the enormous well of goodwill created by the original’s inspired idiocy.

But one can only suspend disbelief for so long and this sequel has problems that the warm glow of nostalgia can’t solve.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Picking up 20 years after the original, Carrey and Daniels head back out on the road to find the daughter Daniels never knew he had. The script – which is credited to six writers – uses the plot as the flimsiest of clotheslines on which to hang its physical gags.

It’s less a movie than a string of punchlines in search of a decent setup. Some work, but many many do not. The first time Carrey pulls an elaborate fake out routine on Daniels it’s mildly amusing. »
