Charlie Day on the Most Difficult Part About Being Groped by Jennifer Aniston: ''It's Fiction!''

21 November 2014 5:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Safe to say Horrible Bosses 2 star Charlie Day doesn't have a problem with the fact that his co-star Jennifer Aniston plays a sex addicted dentist.  E! News caught up with the 38-year-old actor at the Los Premiere of the Sean Anders-directed film, the sequel to the hit 2011 raunchy comedy, and asked him to dish on the most difficult part of being groped by Jennifer Aniston (oh, and he also spilled on his friendship with Zac Efron, but more on that in a minute!).  "The fact that it's fiction!" he told us on the red carpet. "That for me it's a fiction...She's getting paid to do it!"  Still, he added with a smile, "It's not the worst thing in the »

Hannibal Buress Joins Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg in 'Daddy's Home' (Exclusive)

18 November 2014 11:49 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hannibal Buress is joining the cast of Daddy's Home, the Paramount-Red Granite comedy starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. Buress, a stand-up comedian, recently drew attention for his remarks about Bill Cosby's resurfaced rape allegations during a performance in October.  Sean Anders and John Morris are directing the film, which centers on a mild-mannered easy-listening radio executive (Ferrell) looking to become the best stepdad possible to his wife's two children just as their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives on the scene. Buress will play a sarcastic handyman who, due to circumstances orchestrated by Wahlberg’s character,

Movie Review – Horrible Bosses 2 (2014)

14 November 2014 10:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Horrible Bosses 2, 2014.

Directed by Sean Anders.

Starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey.

Synopsis:

Dale, Kurt and Nick decide to start their own business but things don’t go as planned because of a slick investor, prompting the trio to pull off a harebrained and misguided kidnapping scheme.

I will say up front that Horrible Bosses 2 is a strong contender for the best straight up comedy of 2014 (not counting movies like Birdman that also contain dramatic overtones) for one simple reason that many sequels can never get right; the ability to create something fresh while also remembering what brought them to the dance in the first place. In this case, Horrible Bosses 2 decides to shake-up the formula by having our three lovable morons attempt to go into business for themselves and become their own bosses. Not so surprisingly, »

‘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’ Too Dumb to Be Funny

14 November 2014 3:36 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com 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. »

‘Dumb and Dumber To’ isn’t too bad

Dumb and Dumber To

Written by Sean Anders, Mike Cerrone, Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly, John Morris & Bennett Yellin

Directed by Bobby FarrellyPeter Farrelly

USA, 2014

 

Once upon a time, the Farrelly Brothers constructed sight gags capable of reaching new heights (or depths, as the case may be).  Right about the time Brett Favre was murdering comedy in There’s Something About Mary, however, they abandoned their bread and butter in favor of a “comic spaghetti” approach.  Meaning, they throw as many gags at the wall as possible and see what sticks.  Thanks to the comic chemistry of Carrey and Daniels, Dumb and Dumber To is just sticky enough to justify its existence.

It’s almost impossible to remember what a sensation Dumb and Dumber was back in 1994.  Not only was it the driving force that introduced Jim Carrey to the world (along with The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, »

'Dumb and Dumber To' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Silly Sequel

13 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's hard to believe that it's been 20 years since Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels (who, it should be noted, got billing above the one-time box office titan) donned ridiculously bad tuxedoes and charmed the world with the non-stop stupidity of "Dumb and Dumber." But, this being the Hollywood of 2014, which is desperate to revive any property, no matter how old or irrelevant, just because of passing name recognition (there was, we should remember, a "Red Dawn" remake), Harry (Daniels) and Lloyd (Carrey) are back and dumber than ever in "Dumb and Dumber To."

In this long-overdue sequel, Harry and Lloyd are attempting to track down Harry's long-lost daughter, since he is in desperate need of a kidney transplant. So, of course, a wacky road trip comedy ensues, and plenty of gross-out humor is to be had.

But does this movie scratch that "Dumb and Dumber"-related itch that you've been »

Review: 'Dumb and Dumber To' is a gentle but genuine Farrelly Bros comedy

12 November 2014 9:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It feels like only ten minutes ago I was writing about the work of Sean Anders and John Morris. Oh, wait, it was. November is a big month for the comic filmmakers. They're the writer and director behind "Horrible Bosses 2," and they wrote the script for "Dumb and Dumber To," the twenty-years-later sequel to the first film by Pete and Bobby Farrelly, who are once again directing, with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels returning to their roles as well. I had to go back after seeing "Dumb and Dumber To" and see the first film for the first time since it was in theaters. While I love rewatching movies, I also see so many new films every year that there are times I just never quite get around to seeing something a second time. It's been an interesting 20 years for the Farrelly Brothers, and in that time, I've gotten »

Watch 9 Horrible Bosses 2 Clips Featuring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Christoph Waltz, Chris Pine and Jamie Foxx

12 November 2014 8:33 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We just saw Nick (Jason Bateman) unknowingly step into a sex addiction group therapy session and the guys go at it with Kevin Spacey’s Dave Harken in prison, but now it’s time for seven additional Horrible Bosses 2 clips.  They’re not all big winners, but the “kidnaping” gag from the film's trailers works wells and the chemistry between Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis still packs the power to entertain and put a smile on your face.  This new batch of clips also includes some material with Jamie Foxx as Nick, Dale and Kurt’s personal murder consultant Dean "Motherf*cker" Jones and Christoph Waltz as Burt Hanson, the investor who steals Nick, Dale and Kurt's big idea, but it’s Chris Pine as Burt’s rather unhinged son, Rex, who looks to be one of the more promising supporting characters on the roster.

Review: 'Horrible Bosses 2' has funny pieces but is even more mild-mannered than the first

12 November 2014 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On the one hand, I respect anyone who can devise a formula that works for them and for an audience, and while I wasn't a huge fan of the film, the first "Horrible Bosses" seemed to connect with audiences three years ago. The appeal of that film, and one that seems like it's pretty smart in its universal appeal, is that we have all had bosses we hate at some point. Watching characters we like get one up on people we hate is something that seems enormously easy to enjoy. My problem with the first film was that it felt like it never really embraced its premise. It wasn't mean enough, and I guess I hoped we'd see them cut loose in "Horrible Bosses 2" and really go for the dark humor the first film promised but soft-pedaled. After all, they were adding to very game performers in the form »

Film Review: ‘Horrible Bosses 2’

12 November 2014 12:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At the risk of suggesting that “Horrible Bosses 2″ has a compelling reason to exist, it’s worth noting that the movie does function, on one level, as an anti-capitalist revenge fantasy aimed at the excesses of the One Percent. Mainly, however, this inane and incredibly tasteless sequel qualifies as an excuse to bring back those hard-working funnymen Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis for another round of amateur-criminal hijinks and semi-improvised vulgarity, jabbing away repeatedly at some elusive comic sweet spot where blatant nastiness and egregious stupidity collide — and very occasionally hitting the mark. Warners’ Thanksgiving-weekend release should rack up solid numbers in line with its 2011 predecessor’s $117 million domestic haul; if you laughed at the word “rack,” you should get in line now.
