Melbourne, May 4: Some people know straight away which movie to watch while others can't narrow it down to less than 10.
The actors and directors whom News Ltd surveyed found it just as difficult as News Ltd movie reviewer Leigh Paatsch, who had 100 choices to play with for his '100 Must See Movies' list.
'Dumb and Dumber' made the cut for being the movie that kickstarted the "gross out" genre and the Aussie films on the list included 'Gallipoli,' 'Don's. »

Blood, urine, semen, saliva, sweat – they’re all a little disgusting, which of course means they are regularly depicted in movies. Most of the time, the appearance of these liquids is ridiculously childish toilet humor, but on rare occasions a film makes use of human bodily fluids to great effect. It’s these movies we’re focusing on for the 10 Finest Uses of Human Bodily Fluid in Cinema History.
For this article we’re going to look at 10 different bodily fluids – sweat, vomit, breast milk, nasal mucus, saliva, menstrual blood, urine, tears, pus, and semen. And, perhaps not shockingly, there are a lot of movies covering these liquids.
The following fluids won’t be covered in this article, but these scenes deserve mentioning in any article about the stuff that oozes from the human body.

"I've been acting for 36 years just so I could do that speech," reveals Jeff Daniels in a video chat with Gold Derby. "As they say, 'Didn't leave anything in the locker room with it'." Referring to the opening five minutes of the pilot episode of "The Newsroom," which debuted last June on HBO, he called it "not the greatest country in the world speech," which introduced his character of news anchorman Will McAvoy to the viewers. After a long and varied film career in such movies as "Terms of Endearment," "The Purple Rose of Cairo," "Something Wild," "Dumb and Dumber," "The Hours," and "The Squid and the Whale," Daniels now has his first regular series role. The reason? Creator and head writer Aaron Sorkin. "A friend of mine said, "With Aaron, wait 'til you see what you get to say. And that speech along with a lo »
Do you remember that scene in Dumb and Dumber where Jeff Daniels licks a frozen metal pole and finds that his tongue gets stuck to it? Then to free him, he has his head pulls backwards with his tongue stretching like a rubber band? Remember that scene? Well the movie 21 And Over basically does the same joke, but instead of a tongue getting stuck to something and being stretched, it’s a man’s penis…not that it could be a woman’s penis…but the point is that one scene pretty much sums up the level of humour in 21 And Over.
From the writers of The Hangover, expectations are suitably high, but the question as it is with so many filmmakers, have they followed up their hit with another hit, tried to recreate past glories, or gone off on some weird path with something totally unexpected?

Don’t you just look at some people in movies and think, “Damn, they’ve really got it made”? They might not be a millionaire or a rock God or a superhero, but just an average Joe who seems to have a cushy little life with their comfortable job.
The problem, of course, is that in reality, these people would never, ever get employed in their chosen field – or probably any other job position – by anyone. We aspire to them because of their uncanny abilities not to get sacked, and the incredulous manner through which they manage to coast on their idiocy, their obnoxiousness, or their flat-out incompetence.

Here’s that sequel to Ace Ventura: Unlikely Gun Control Advocate we’ve all been waiting for!
Jim Carrey made waves last Monday with a Funny or Die video called “Cold Dead Hand,” which spoofed the pro-gun advocacy of the NRA and the late Charlton Heston. After Fox News’s talking heads spent the rest of the week raking the Golden Globe winner and his liberal ideas over the coals, Carrey shot back with a statement that called the network “a last resort for kinda-sorta-almost-journalists,” “a media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams,” and perhaps most damningly of all, »

He is more used to sparring with fellow stars on the big screen – but Jim Carrey has found a more provocative target: Fox News. The Dumb and Dumber star has traded barbs with the right-wing Us news channel over its apparent opposition to new gun-control measures. According to i, Carrey released a statement describing Fox News as a "media colostomy bag that has begun to burst at the seams and should be emptied before it becomes a public-health issue". Ouch! That stinker was prompted by Fox News commentator Greg Gutfield describing Carrey as "probably the most pathetic tool on the face of the earth … This video made me want to go out and buy a gun". Let's keep it to a verbal-only shootout please, chaps.

This week sees the release of break-out, blockbusting comedy, Identity Thief. The film reunites director Seth Gordon with his ever-likeable Horrible Bosses lead, Jason Bateman, whose mild-mannered businessman Sandy Bigelow Patterson becomes the victim of the hapless titular criminal. Once he decides to travel from Denver to Miami to confront the deceptively harmless-looking culprit (played by Bridesmaids scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy), hilarity ensues. To celebrate Identity Thief reaching our shores, we at Thn have selected our top five classic comedy duos.
The awesome director of genuine classics, The Warriors (1979) and Southern Comfort (1981), Walter Hill, played a masterstroke by pairing gruff sourpuss Nick Nolte with fast-talking comedian Eddie Murphy in the early eighties. 48 Hours sees Nolte’s hard-nosed cop, Jack Cates, reluctantly teaming up with Murphy’s wise-cracking criminal Reggie Hammond, who’s temporarily paroled to help Jack track down a killer. Murphy was »

While the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber and the 1980 horror classic The Shining probably won't ever appear on a double bill at an independent movie theater, it doesn't mean that the two movies can't fit together. In fact, the folks at OfficialComedy have created a mash-up clip that takes one of the more frightening scenes from The Shining, the one where Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) hunts down his wife and child with an axe and utters the movie's most famous phrase, and blended it with a scene from Dumb and Dumber where Harry (Jeff Daniels), well, becomes indisposed.

Jim Carrey is seriously having himself quite a week. First we premiered the brand new trailer for the hotly anticipated hardcore superhero sequel "Kick-Ass 2" yesterday, which co-stars Carrey as club-wielding psycho Colonel Stars and Stripes. And then last night was the world premiere of his new movie "Burt Wonderstone," which sees Carrey facing off against Steve Carell in a battle of comedic heavyweights.
Hey, for a dumb guy, Carrey's career moves this week sure seem smart.
"Dumb and Dumber," of course, is the cult classic 1994 comedy featuring Carrey and Daniels as two of the stupidest people in world history. The film was a massive hit when it came out, earning nearly $250 million worldwide (which, adjusted for inflation, »

"We're talking about it," Carrey told Access Hollywood. "Jeff [Daniels] and I are really excited about it and hopefully next year we'll be able to do that."
Carrey reportedly dropped out of the sequel last summer, but Daniels confirmed two months later that the film would go ahead with both he and his co-star attached.
Bobby Farrelly revealed to Digital Spy last year that the sequel will be set 20 years after the first film, and will feature either Lloyd or Harry's offspring.
Jim Carrey's movie career in pictures: »
Once upon a time, "The Shining" was recut to look like a family comedy, and so began the art of the recut trailer. It's since become a common part of the Internet landscape, but credit should always be paid to the originator, which is why a mashup of Kubrick's classic with "Dumb and Dumber" is a truly decadent, demented pleasure.
When you pair a maniacal Jack Nicholson with a gastrointestinally-challenged Jeff Daniels, what you get is movie magic, as it turns out! All you need to do is add an ax-wielding, blood-hungry villain with some really stupid, classic potty humor, and you have on your hands a viral video destined for greatness.
Now, if only we could find Jim Carrey »

The Dumb and Dumber star, who plays Colonel Stars in the superhero sequel, said that his persona and physical appearance are radically different from his previous roles.
"It's going to be fun. It's different for me. They called me up and said we want you to play this ex-Mafia enforcer, Sam DeStefano-style. So I looked at myself in the mirror and went, 'Ok, might have to do some work'," he told Fandango.
"I got my own make-up guys together and we just started experimenting and it's amazing how little you have to do to completely change your personality. We came up with a guy that no-one is going to recognise as me. It's so far away from anything that you've seen. It's really fun."
Sam Raimi's sumptuous prequel has cast a spell on audiences, putting an end to a dismal period at the Us box office
Finally 2013 has clicked into gear. After stops and starts, false dawns, a slow first quarter and some truly awful films, it has taken Sam Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful to get things going with the third biggest March launch in North American box-office history. This prequel to The Wizard of Oz is good multiplex entertainment and looks sumptuous. Plus Franco is not as irritating as he has been, which goes a long way towards making Oz as winning as it is.
An estimated $80.3m opening weekend ensured that Oz ranks behind only Disney stablemate Alice in Wonderland ($116.1m, 2010) and The Hunger Games ($152.5m, 2012) in the March pantheon. It looks like it will take years before any movie can overtake The Hunger Games. Even Oz's worldwide »

The Ace Ventura star said that he thinks Stone would be a great addition to the cast of the comedy sequel, reports E! Online.
Dumb and Dumber co-director Peter Farrelly, who will helm the follow-up with his brother Bobby, is also said to be keen to land Stone, saying that she would "knock it out of the park" in the role of a "young, dumb girl".
Carrey said of her potential casting: "That would be great. That would be awesome."
Dumb and Dumber To is the sequel to the 1994 comedy starring Carrey and Jeff Daniels (Looper). Bobby Farrelly confirmed to Digital Spy last year that Carrey and Daniels were both on board for the picture.
Now, Carrey - who is currently starring in "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" - says he's definitely back in - but there's still no start date for the comedy.
"I'm ready [to start ...

Getting the go-ahead to make the sequel to Dumb and Dumber seems like a pretty smart move, but for some reason it's not happening yet. Although Jim Carrey had dropped out of the follow-up to the Farrelly brothers' 1994 hit in June, he says he and Jeff Daniels still want to see it happen. "I'm ready," Carrey told me last night at SXSW's opening night premiere of his new comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. "There is a script. It's fun. Jeff and I are raring to go." So what's the holdup? "It's administrative," Carrey said, adding, "The green light committees have to have their way." Writer-director Peter Farrelly said earlier »
Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer, a pair of CAA agents with clients like the Farrelly Brothers and "Paranormal Activity" writer/producer Oren Peli, have joined Resolution, the new firm from former ICM Chairman Jeff Berg. Kanter has been at CAA since 1989 and represented such clients as "Rescue Me" co-creator Peter Tolan, "Tommy Boy" director Peter Segal and Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the comedic minds behind "Dumb and Dumber." "I'm thrilled to join Resolution and am looking forward to playing an integral role in building a full service agency from its inception," Kanter »
