Trailer: Emmanuel Mouret's Fais-moi plaisir!

25 June 2009 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- What I'm seeing in the trailer for Emmanuel Mouret's Fais-moi plaisir! is pure Blake Edwards' The Party. His last two films, Change of Address and Shall We Kiss?, were released to art-house U.S. audiences, and this hybrid of comedy of manners/comedy of errors might also be headed the same way. Working with Frédérique Bel for a third straight project (she is the blonde girlfriend pushing him to cheat), the pic also features Judith Godrèche and Déborah François, who recently starred in Unmade Beds. Cineuropa.org translates the film's title as Please, Please Me!, this centres on Ariane (Bel), who believes that her partner (Mouret) is fantasizing about another woman. Hoping to free him from his obsession, she asks him to have an affair with the woman in question (Godrèche), who turns out to be the daughter of the French President! There follow several twists and »

Munich fest to honor Stephen Frears

29 April 2009 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Cologne, Germany -- The 2009 Munich Film Festival, which runs June 26-July 4, will honor British director Stephen Frears with a retrospective of his life's work.

Munich will screen Frears' entire oeuvre, from "My Beautiful Laundrette" in 1985 through to his latest, the period romance "Cheri" starring Michelle Pfeiffer.

"Stephen Frears is one of the Europe's most interesting and idiosyncratic filmmakers," Munich festival director Andreas Strohl said. "His name stands as much for small politically and socially engaged films as for Hollywood movies and intelligent entertainment."

The Munich event, Germany's No. 2 film festival after the Berlinale, will announce its full lineup in June. But Strohl did unveil this year's Open Air program, which will include comedy classics "The Blues Brothers," Jacques Tati's "Playtime" and "The Party" from Blake Edwards starring Peter Sellers, all screening under this year's festival motto "passionate destruction." »

Movies That Deserve a Second Life: Comedy Edition

5 April 2009 10:00 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Welcome to another edition of Movies That Deserve a Second Life. If you need a refresher on what I’m referring to by “second life,” check out the Action/Adventure Edition. If you’re caught up, read on to see what funny flics I felt were unfairly ignored/disliked upon its release or have been forgotten in the years since its release.

Comedy is almost certainly the most subjective of all genres. What makes one person laugh is guaranteed to make another yawn or wrinkle his/her brow. Some find juvenilia in poor taste while others bust a gut. Everyone claims to have a sense of humor, but almost no one enjoys every type of humor there is, from dry wit and pungent satire to bodily fluid gags and intentionally groan-worthy puns. Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that no one (besides myself) will be satisfied with every choice. »

The Party Remake Gets a Director

23 March 2009 11:39 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

A couple of years ago, in the wake of the success of Borat, there was an interesting rumour that popped up about the possibility of Sacha Baron Cohen starring in a remake [1] of Blake Edwards's The Party. Since then we've heard nothing more about the project, making it probably just another wacky rumour dreamed up by a gossip columnist looking for attention. This week, however, The Party has once again resurfaced, this time with writer/director Jonathan Kesselman attempting to set it up as an indepedent production. According to The Hollywood Reporter [2], MGM and Dreamworks failed to follow through on the project, leaving Kesselman to finance it on his own for $20 million. Kesselman previously wrote and directed The Hebrew Hammer, a Jewish-themed blaxploitation spoof that I have not seen, but heard good things about. Still, I have my doubts about whether or not this is a movie that can »

Jonathan Kesselman to direct "The Party" remake. As long as Steve Martin's not in, we're happy.

23 March 2009 | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Now that Steve Martin has effectively killed off one of the most iconic comedy characters ever, let's hope he has nothing to do with this remake.   Jonathan Kesselman,  helmer of Comedy Central's "The Hebrew Hammer," will now direct a revamp of the Blake Edwards' comedy "The Party."   Marco Garibaldi is producing under his Godfather Entertainment company.Apparently, this is a $20 million independently financed film that will be looking for cameos by various of high-profile Hollywood folks.In "The Party," Peter Sellers starred as Hrundi V. Bakshi, an oafish Indian extra on a film who is mistakenly invited to a high profile party and innocently turns the place upside down. The most memorable scene is by far the "Birdy Num Num" via the home's sound system which is hilariously heard by all attending.   »

Jonathan Kesselman to Organize Party

23 March 2009 | Comingsoon.net | See recent Comingsoon.net news »

Jonathan Kesselman, director of Comedy Central's "The Hebrew Hammer," will helm the remake of Blake Edwards' The Party that Marco Garibaldi is producing under his Godfather Entertainment. The project is a $20 million independently financed film that will aim for cameos by a number of high-profile Hollywood personalities. In Edwards' "Party," Peter Sellers starred as Hrundi V. Bakshi, an Indian extra who inadvertently is invited to a swank Hollywood party. Garibaldi, who has brought on Brandon Gibson and Jim Russo to help him write the script, will tweak the conceit, focusing on a blond Midwesterner whose appearance is changed by studio executives eager he fit a part. »

Kesselman Ready To Party

22 March 2009 11:30 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He's not exactly a household name, having last directed cult hit The Hebrew Hammer waaaay back in 2003, but Jonathan Kesselman has lined up an interesting job for his return to the big screen: a remake of The Party, originally directed by Pink Panther supremo Blake Edwards.The original movie saw bumbling Indian film extra Hrundi V. Bakshi (played by Peter Sellers) accidentally invited to an exclusive party instead of being fired when two memos are confused. This time, to avoid the dodgy racial politics of the 1968 film, the same role will be that of a blond Midwesterner whose appearance has been changed by studio executives anxious for him to fit a part.There's no start date or cast yet, although the film is aiming to enlist lots of high-profile actors in cameo roles. It's early days, but this might be worth keeping an eye on. After all, Kesselman has kept »
