Have you met Margo Roth Spiegelman (Cara Delevingne), the most contemptible Wes Anderson character to not star in a Wes Anderson filmc Well, she's the object of desire for one Quentin Jacobsen (Nat Wolff), or "Q" as he's constantly referred to in Paper Towns, a film so easy to hate it's almost as if it was created for that specific purpose. Adapted from the novel by John Green ("The Fault in Our Stars"), the hope here is to mimic the success of the previous adaptation, but there isn't even an inkling of the humanity, romance or humor found in The Fault in Our Stars to save this film from its loathsome self. We meet Q at the tender age of nine-years-old as his 18-year-old self tells us he believes in miracles. Every one of us receives at least one miracle in our lifetime he says and for him it's when »

Everything Wrong With the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer *Nsfw Language
With the touted release of the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer at Comic-Con last week, Cinema Sins is back to break down everything that's "wrong" with this new footage. This five minute video, »
Jon Hamm first obliterated his Don Draper austerity with guest appearances on "30 Rock" and "SNL," but the "Mad Men" alum plays his zaniest character yet with a voice role in "Minions." As Herb Overkill, the snazzy British husband of supervillain Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock), Hamm gets to be rambunctious, silly, and even a little diabolical. We caught up with Hamm to discuss meeting Bullock, trying new things in film, and the fact that he's seen "Dumb and Dumber" a thousand times. "Minions" opens in theaters July 10. »

Tracing a Taoist priest’s foray from his hermit-like existence into the secular world, Chen Kaige’s “Monk Comes Down the Mountain” is an uncharacteristically lightweight martial-arts caper with a touch of Zen (and sin). Told in the old-school tradition of wuxia serial novels, the film’s simple fable of good and evil unfolds with wondrous visuals that recall the stylistic chutzpah of Chen’s “The Promise,” but absent that pic’s kitschiness. The feast of fighting styles on display will easily woo core Asian genre fans and conquer ancillary markets, and despite the gloomy fates of equally virtuoso martial-arts movies like “Wuxia” and “Reign of Assassins” in China, domestic B.O. looks encouraging; “Monk” took in $7 million on opening day.
Based on a widely read martial-arts novel by author-helmer-scribe Xu Haofeng (“The Sword Identity,” “Judge Archer”), who co-wrote Wong Kar-wai’s “The Grandmaster,” the film is set in Hangzhou during the turbulent 1930s. »

Jim Carrey did not hold back his anger over vaccinations on Tuesday when he unleashed his wrath on Twitter. “California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines. This corporate fascist must be stopped,” the “Dumb and Dumber” actor wrote. Carrey was referring to the controversial law that was passed earlier in the day by Gov. Jerry Brown eliminating the state’s previous exemptions from vaccinations for personal or religious beliefs. The new ruling requires mandatory vaccinations for nearly every school child in the state.

Although it premiered to very mixed reviews and seemingly disappointing box office back in 2012, it appears there’s life in The Three Stooges yet. An independent production team is reuniting Larry (Sean Hayes), Curly (Will Sasso) and Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos) for more comedy madness in a sequel.While Dumb And Dumber duo Peter and Bobby Farrelly were the co-writers and directors last time, realising a long-held dream to bring the characters to a new audience, Variety’s story on the sequel makes no mention of either. Instead, Cameron Fay has been hired to write the script, which will apparently have more of an action comedy slant this time, with producers C3 Entertainment looking to add a big star into the mix.“With Sean, Chris and Will back as our Stooges, and Cameron writing, this next film will be a truly unique blend of fast paced action with the hilarious mayhem of The Three Stooges, »
Lionsgate’s big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series may not have reached the dizzying heights of the company’s other Ya juggernaut, The Hunger Games, but the property has still managed to carve out an audience of its own to warrant Lionsgate seeing the series through to its two-part conclusion, Allegiant.
With little less than a year until the arrival of Part I, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the studio is on the verge of snapping up its first new addition to the anticipated finale: The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels. It’s understood that the part reserved for the Dumb and Dumber star is a key role, one which will stretch across both installments.

★★☆☆☆ Twenty years after the release of Dumb and Dumber (1994) Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) return with another dose of malodorous humour in Dumb and Dumber To (2014). Lloyd has been in a fallow state for two decades but now he's back and itching to go on another road trip with Harry whose just discovered he has a long-lost daughter with the one time love of his life, Fraida Felcher (Kathleen Turner). The pair sets off to find Penny (Rachel Melvin) just as she heads off to a big science symposium to give an important speech on behalf of her adoptive father Dr. Pinchelow (Steve Tom). Two ineffectual and methane-loving knights in shining armour, the pair follow Penny to the symposium.

Filmmakers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer ran out of gas a long time ago as aggressively madcap movie spoofers. (Not that they had much in the tank to begin with – remember, we’re talking about the pair who gave us “Vampires Suck,” “Disaster Movie” and “Meet the Spartans.”) But they’re still spinning their wheels, even while stuck in a rut, and continuing to produce lamely unfunny drivel such as “Superfast!,” a low-octane goof on the “Fast and Furious” franchise. Much like “The Starving Games” (2013), heretofore the nadir of their careers, their latest opus is receiving only a limited theatrical release — during the opening weekend of monster hit “Furious 7” — concurrent with its VOD debut. But, really, some theatrical releases can never be limited enough.
This time out, Friedberg and Seltzer keep their freewheeling pop-culture digressions to a minimum, preferring to concentrate almost exclusively on the primary object of their affliction. »

After profiling "thirtysomething" creators Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, "X-Files" creator Chris Carter and others, the AOL original series "Inspired" has turned its attention to the Farrelly Brothers. As co-directors of such classics as "Dumb and Dumber" and "There's Something About Mary," Peter and Bobby Farrelly rank among the most prolific and enduring comedy filmmakers around. More recently, they've been behind remakes of "The Heartbreak Kid" and "The Three Stooges," as well as the sequel "Dumb and Dumber To." In the upcoming episode of "Inspired," the writing-directing team explains how after nine years of writing without ever getting anything produced, they were able to write and direct one of the most successful and beloved comedies in history, "Dumb and Dumber," and helped make Jim Carrey one of the biggest stars in film. Check out two exclusive clips of the »

As brands scramble to make sense of Snapchat and its value as the fastest growing mobile app, Hollywood may already be ahead of the curve. Universal was one of the first to see potential in the platform’s growing audience. Snapchat’s first two ads were trailers for the movie studio’s “Ouija” followed by “Dumb and Dumber To.” Since then, movies such as “The Duff” and “Pitch Perfect 2,” plus TV shows including “Girls” and “Pretty Little Liars” have made strong plays on the mobile messaging app. But the 2014-2015 awards season may have shown the social platform’s »

The duo sang their hearts out – and tickled many funny bones – on such beloved numbers as Sonny & Cher’s “I Got You Babe” (complete with hair-flips), Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers’ “Islands in the Stream” and Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville’s “Don’t Know Much.” Dumb and Dumber fans, meanwhile, »

Things aren't always as they seem… Someone posing as Jim Carrey attended the Czech Lions Ceremony, which is equal to the Academy Awards in the Czech Republic, and completely fooled everyone! Jan Sverak, a film director who actually oversaw the entire event, explained that he was tricked by the hoax and apologized to viewers for the mix-up. "We have become very likely the target of a very elaborate hoax. I'm sorry," he told a crowd of reporters shortly after the ceremony aired. Even the show's host, Lucie Vyborna, thought that the man pretending to be the Dumb and Dumber star was real and insisted that Carey was in attendance at the Czech show. "Of course the »
What's leaving Netflix in March? Well, the streaming service is expiring a slew of movies and TV shows, with a big chunk of the departing titles belonging to the Cartoon Network -- you'll see those say bye-bye at the end of the month. From what we can tell, that's about it in terms of TV exiting Watch Instantly.
As for movies, the clock is ticking for favorites "Dumb and Dumber," "Fright Night," Desperado," "Seven," "Pretty in Pink," "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion," and "The Muppet Movie," which will all be pulled in the monthly purge.
Here's the complete list of titles that will vanish from your streaming list (pending any sort of meddling time-travelers). And, just so you're not left empty-handed, here's a list of what's new on Netflix in March 2015.

When Jared Leto hit the red carpet at this year’s Oscars, people couldn’t help but notice that his long, luxurious locks were on fleek. Alas: "This is the last night you'll see me with long hair," he told Et. "This is my going away party for my hair."
Also, that he bared more than a passing resemblance to Jesus Christ.

Jared Leto is basically just Jesus through an Instagram filter.

Major wardrobe drama! Did Jared Leto just steal his look from Harry Dunne? The Dallas Buyers Club actor showed up to the 2015 Oscars sporting a tuxedo that looks eerily similar to that of Jeff Daniels from the classic film Dumb and Dumber. From the silk lapel down to the powder-blue shade, it's a full on Who Wore It Better moment. This is the actor's first Oscars appearance since his big win last year for his portrayal of Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club, but it seems like his suit may have stolen his thunder a bit. Of course, Leto is no stranger to being in the fashion spotlight. He's worn many a sharp suit in his day (including last year's white-tux-and-bowtie number), and his signature »
The medical drama will be introduced this season on the 19th episode of “Chicago Fire.”

Coming off one of the busiest weekends in years, the box office is going to quiet down significantly this coming weekend.Hot Tub Time Machine 2, McFarland, USA and The Duff are all opening in at least 2,500 theaters, though it would be surprising if any of these took in over $15 million this weekend. Therefore, the top three spots should once again belong to Fifty Shades of Grey, Kingsman: The Secret Service and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.Coming off a massive $85.2 million debut, Fifty Shades of Grey seems poised to take a dive this weekend. Word-of-mouth is mixed, die-hard book fans likely already made it out last weekend, and romantic movies tend to fall hard coming off Valentine's Day. About Last Night (2014), Endless Love and Valentine's Day all fell at least 70 percent on this same weekend, while the Twilight sequels and The Fault in our Stars had similar second weekend drops. »

While I understand a filmmaker’s want to go above and beyond when creating a sequel, Hot Tub Time Machine 2 suffers from a serious case of “youngest child” syndrome. Steve Pink’s original time-traveling period-piece is a rather funny endeavor, only because it’s executed with a sensible craziness that boasts decent helpings of immature yucks to balance out some seriously rad 80s humor.
The sequel, trying to live up to its big brother’s legacy, essentially runs around with its dick in its hands for 90 minutes, craving the same adoring attention without exemplifying any of the previously successful methods. It’s basically Dumb And Dumber To all over again – take everything you thought worked from the original, and repurpose it a billion times over before absolutely killing whatever nostalgic enjoyment might have been attainable. Welcome back, gang!
