“Cuddle Club” Trailer Goes Viral
27 May 2011 7:47 PM, PDT
Newcomer actor/producer threats Noah Baron and Ross Willett created a shot-for-shot re-imagining of Fight Club. Add their film “Cuddle Club” to the list of impressive trailer re-cuts circulating the web. This is apparently the first brick to be laid on what should be a long and winding, yellow-brick-road to comic wizardry. Said Boston transplant Noah Baron, “The last 48 hours have been amazing and we’re looking forward to releasing some more projects in the near future. This is just the beginning. ” Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk has already tweeted the trailer on his blog. Wouldn’t be surprised if Daniel Tosh has a little fun with this on Tosh.0. The trailer is even more impressive if you watch it side-by-side with the real Fight Club trailer. You can watch “Cuddle Club” on Funny or Die by clicking here.

Hungover from The Hangover?
25 May 2011 8:59 PM, PDT
I’m feeling a bit hungover from The Hangover: Part II. I’m less pissed than the Thailand Foreign Ministry after Todd Phillips shat all over the city of Bangkok. There was so much build-up and buzz for the second film in the franchise that the film inevitably was set to disappoint even before its release. The script is a lazy regurgitation of the original.
Everything about this new script is just plain lazy. A monkey was substituted in for a tiger. Gunshot wounds replaced tazer wounds. A tattoo on Stu’s face took the place of his previous dental deformity. Alan’s roofies were switched out with muscle relaxers and Adhd medication. Justin Bartha’s character was once again a plot device – why isn’t he allowed to have fun with the other guys? Oh that’s right, he’s not funny. »
