Zoolander 2 review: “Hysterical and completely bizarre.”

10 February 2016 9:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Zoolander 2 review: Can Stiller’s second shot at the ridiculously good-looking male model break the curse of the belated sequel? Zoolander 2 review

Comedy sequels are one of the trickiest things to pull off. They either come too soon and are too similar, such as The Hangover movies, or they come too late and feel very forced. Being 15 years since the original Zoolander hit screens it would be fair to assume that Zoolander 2 falls into the latter bracket. In some ways it arguably is, but it is also hysterical and completely bizarre.

We pick up 15 years from the last film and are quickly informed how Derek Zoolander’s (Ben Stiller) Centre For Kids Who Can’t Read Good collapsed soon after opening, killing his wife (Christine Taylor) and injuring his friend Hansel (Owen Wilson). With Zoolander and Hansel both in hiding the world’s pop-stars are dying with specific looks on their faces. »

Review: Profoundly unfunny 'Zoolander 2' faceplants on the runway

10 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I wanted to laugh last night. Hell, I needed to laugh last night. And Zoolander 2 failed me completely. Brutally unfunny, visually off-putting, and filled with cameos so embarrassing I am bruised from holding a cringe for a full half-hour, Zoolander 2 is every horrible decision you can make with a comedy sequel wrapped up into one nigh unbearable film. There is a single shot in one scene of Olivia Munn, and I couldn't tell you what she was playing or what role got cut down in the final film, but that one last errant useless shot, left in instead of being totally excised with the rest of her part, sums up the way the entire film feels to me. It feels like it was thrown together in a blender and just poured into a cup indifferently, no matter what ended up blended in there. So many jokes fall so »

Beautiful Girls 20 Years Later: Where Is the Cast Now?

9 February 2016 9:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Twenty years ago this week - Feb. 9, 1996 - the romcom-dramedy Beautiful Girls first opened in theaters. The film centers around Willie (Timothy Hutton), who returns home for his high school reunion in a small Massachusetts town. It's funny, it's heartwarming, and it features one of the better ensemble casts of the 1990s. In honor of the film's 20th anniversary, we're pulling out the yearbook and looking up the film's cast to what they've been up to over the past 20 years. Timothy HuttonHutton won Best Supporting Actor in 1981 for Ordinary People when he was only 20. To this day he's the youngest-ever »

Someone brilliantly re-cut 'Dumb and Dumber' as an Oscar-winning drama

26 January 2016 11:08 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jeff Daniels is already in one Best Picture nominee this year, The Martian. But what if he had a second ace in his sleeve? I give you the re-cut, Oscar-worthy trailer for the devastating drama Dumb and Dumber.  Oh, the tears are falling. Thank you, Mashable. To be fair, Lloyd Christmas is "overcoming the odds" by pulling off that haircut, cooperating with Harry Dunne, and surviving a movie's worth of idiotic hijinks without perishing. You know else appreciates the deep integrity and heartwarming drama of Dumb and DumberJon Hamm. Check out our interview with the Mad Men star, who admitted he's seen the movie dozens of times.   »

I Really Miss The Days When Jim Carrey Was Funny: Watch This Exit from Letterman

23 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

For those of you in the right generation (and we’re not talking Mr. Popper’s Penguins generation) remember how unbelievably funny Jim Carrey used to be? From his days at In Living Color to his triumphant beginning of Ace Ventura, to comedy classic Dumb and Dumber, there’s a reason this guy used to make $20 million a movie. And it’s not from him playing serious roles like on The Truman Show or even the heroin addict in The Deal Pool. It’s because Carrey was an original. He utilized a brand of comedy no one had ever seen before. It was the

Dumb and Dumber Recut As a Drama Reveals the Poignant Friendship of Two Lonely Men Who Just Happen to Have Terrible Haircuts

22 January 2016 7:32 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Could there be any funnier movie than a serious drama in which the only comedic element is every character having terrible hair? Not in a David O. Russell "explosion at the wig factory" way, but intentionally? Mashable's artful dramatic recut of Dumb and Dumber certainly makes the case for the idea. Their new trailer turns the Farrelly Brothers' film' into the tale of one man's heartfelt journey to find love in a lonely world, but oh, you can't recut Jim Carrey's baby bangs! Astronauts on the International Space Station could identify Dumb and Dumber as a comedy based on that bang length alone. »

8 Famous Movie Scenes That Were Created By Complete Accident

3 January 2016 2:21 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New Line Cinema

Everyone’s heard of famous movie moments that were totally improvised. From Harrison Ford suggesting Indiana Jones shoot the black-robed warrior in Raiders Of The Lost Ark to Jim Carrey’s “most annoying sound in the world” scene in Dumb and Dumber, there are a whole host of classic moments that were totally made up on the spot.

But the moments on this list are different. While they often include elements of on-the-spot improvisation, they weren’t scripted as being improvised. There was no director telling the actor that morning that they’d need to come up with something, and there was no time to prepare off-screen. These were moments that spawned from complete and utter fortuitous chance.

From an actor breaking a bone on set to a wasted extra chucking a prop at the lead actor’s head during filming, these are famous moments that were created by complete accident, »
