Tommy Lee Jones Told Jim Carrey ‘I Cannot Sanction Your Buffoonery’ While They Were Making ‘Batman Forever’ — Watch
In case you were wondering, that bizarre Jim Carrey interview from a few weeks back wasn’t an anomaly. The man who brought us Ace Ventura and the Mask still believes that none of us exist and nothing matters, though he does seem to take it all in stride during his appearance on “Norm Macdonald Live.”

After joking about the fact that “every once in a while, somebody you really admire hates your guts,” Carrey reveals two people who weren’t fans of him: Chuck Jones and Tommy Lee Jones.

Jim Carrey To Play Tormented Children’s TV Star In New Showtime Comedy From Michel Gondry
Jim Carrey is reuniting with his “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry to star in a new half-hour comedy for Showtime. “Kidding,” which has been given a 10-episode order, will represent Carrey’s first series regular role in more than two decades.

“Kidding” stars Carrey as Jeff, also known as beloved children’s TV personality Mr. Pickles. Here’s the logline: “A beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him – [Jeff] also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality’s family – wife, two sons, sister and father – begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.

Director Spike Jonze Was Up For Ace Ventura 2 and Jim Carrey is Kicking Himself in the Ass For Not Hiring Him

I had absolutely no idea that director Spike Jonze (Her, Where The Wild Things Are) was up to direct Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura 2. It's true, though! According to Carrey, the director came in and "pitched all kinds of shit." Ultimately Jonze didn't get the gig, but Carrey has regretted not hiring him ever since.

Carrey shared the story at the Toronto International Film Festival (via ScreenCrush) where he was promoting the new documentary he did with Jonze’s called Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond. Here's what he said:

“I’ve been wanting to do something with Spike forever. I was stupid enough to turn him down to direct Ace [Ventura] 2, cause I had no idea who he was. And he came in and pitched all kinds of shit, and he was about to take over the world and I didn’t know it. I was like ‘I don’t know,

Jim Carrey wouldn't let Spike Jonze direct the Ace Ventura sequel

The two Ace Ventura movies aren’t remembered particularly fondly these days beyond how much fun it is to say “do not go in there” when exiting a room, but 1995's Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls could’ve almost been a bit cooler than what we ended up with. That’s because famously hip dude Spike Jonze made a pitch to…

Jim Carrey, Behind the Mask: The Actor Explains His Viral Red Carpet Interview, Painting, and Life Beyond Slapstick

Jim Carrey, Behind the Mask: The Actor Explains His Viral Red Carpet Interview, Painting, and Life Beyond Slapstick
Jim Carrey likes to mess with people. Using 100 hours of behind-the-scenes footage from Milos’ Forman’s 1999 Andy Kaufman biopic “Man in the Moon,” Carrey and director Chris Smith created “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond,” a documentary that details Carrey’s aggressive Method approach to portraying Kaufman and his abrasive, lounge-singing alter ego Tony Clifton. It shows that Carrey baffled everyone on set and beyond it, crashing parties and workplaces in character as he burrowed so far inside the role no one was sure he’d come back. Pitched somewhere between a punchline and psychosis, the result was one of his most remarkable, lived-in performances in a career filled with jarring slapstick creations.

“It was a choice as an actor to have Andy come back and make his movie, to push me aside,” Carrey said during an interview in Toronto to promote the documentary, which Netflix recently acquired. “I was wondering

Spike Jonze Almost Directed ‘Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls,’ but Jim Carrey Turned Him Down
Countless potentially great director/movie pairings never came to pass, from David Lynch helming “Return of the Jedi” to Cary Fukunaga tackling “It.” Here’s another for the list: Spike Jonze and “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.” Jim Carrey — who, you may have noticed, waxed philosophical on the red carpet yesterday — revealed that the “Being John Malkovich” and “Her” auteur almost made his directorial debut with the comedy sequel during a Q&A in Toronto today.

Celebrating the movies of Keanu Reeves

Kirsten Howard Feb 17, 2017

Keanu Reeves, as much as any actor of his generation, has left a legacy to be proud of. We take a look back at his career.

Much like his character in the John Wick films, Keanu Reeves is a man with very little to lose.

Often maligned for his lack of range as an actor, or dismissed as merely a vaguely goofy action star, every misstep that Reeves has taken throughout his career has come from an enviable ability to consistently take risks. Despite every effort to pigeonhole him, Keanu Reeves just won’t be told what he can and can’t do.

Movie Review – The Brothers Grimsby (2016)

The Brothers Grimsby (aka Grimsby), 2016.

Directed by Louis Leterrier.

Starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Mark Strong, Rebel Wilson, Penélope Cruz, Isla Fisher, Gabourey Sidibe, Scott Adkins, Barkhad Abdi, Annabelle Wallis, and Ian McShane.


A football hooligan tracks down his long-lost brother, a spy for MI6, and they end up on the run from a terrorist organisation.

There are some movies you watch and have absolutely no idea where to even begin assessing. The Brothers Grimsby is definitely one of those flicks; an extreme gross-out comedy putting things on-screen that no one ever needed to see (some of it is so disgusting I will probably never watch the movie again, even though I laughed quite a bit and liked it), but at the end of the day, there is a method to this madness. This isn’t like a modern Adam Sandler comedy where the shock value seems uninspired and lazy,

Jim Carrey and Hugh Jackman Get in Hilarious Impersonation War

Jim Carrey and Hugh Jackman Get in Hilarious Impersonation War
Three days ago, Hugh Jackman decided to share his impersonation of Jim Carrey's The Mask in an Instagram video that quickly went viral. The star of that 1994 classic has now responded, sparking one very hilarious social media war. Yes, as you will see in the photo below, Jim Carrey is The Wolverine, and he is threatening his impersonation opponent with some deadly cutlery.

It's The Wolverine Vs. The Mask in what will surely be remembered as a showdown for the ages (well, in actuality you'll probably forget about it before you get home from work tonight). They both wear yellow costumes, they are both impervious to injury, and they're both flamboyant and loud superheroes! And they obviously like taking the piss out of one another, using the world as their platform. Though, this is more on the funny side. Don't expect this jovial beef to break out in the

So, 'Kung Pow: Enter the Fist' is Getting a Sequel...

So, 'Kung Pow: Enter the Fist' is Getting a Sequel...
Steve Oedekerk's 2002 dubbed comedy Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is one of those comedies I'll always have to regret liking when I was around nine-or-ten years old. It's a sophomoric, slappy-happy rip-off of Woody Allen's What's Up, Tiger Lily written with all the sophistication and charm of two middle-school boys riffing on a copy of an old 1970s martial arts feature. It probably had to do with my love of kung fu -- something I still adore today -- and being of the right age. This is all to say, it's one of those black marks in my film-loving life from which I constantly atone for. It didn't make a dent in the box office, but I suppose it had a modern following on home video who clamored up its irreverence in a pre-YouTube era as I did then. Does that warrant the need to have a sequel

Ted 2 review

Mark Wahlberg and Seth MacFarlane return for Ted 2. This time, it’s actually more fun…

Comedy sequels are often pure tripe. For every 22 Jump Street there’s at least 40 of the ilk of Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. Ted 2 veers closer to the former, even though you might expect Seth MacFarlane to favour Jim Carrey emerging from a Rhino’s anus to anything resembling character development.

Surprisingly though, something about Ted 2 just works, and it arguably stems from the core plot itself. In the original Ted, the worn-out narrative of ‘my girlfriend wants me to grow up’ gave the film a fairly negative through-line. That, coupled with the relentless gross-out gags and consequence-free drug humour, culminated in a film that had laughs, but wasn’t particularly likeable. And that’s coming from a writer who has happily fallen asleep to Family Guy re-runs on BBC3 more times than he can remember.

The MTV Movie Awards never pretended to be the Oscars. This is the ceremony, after all, that one time handed a Golden Popcorn trophy to Friday the 13th slasher Jason Voorhees for his Lifetime Achievement.

DVD Review – The Rewrite (2014)

The Rewrite, 2014

Written and directed by Marc Lawrence

Starring Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei, J.K. Simmons, Allison Janney, Chris Elliot


An Oscar-winning writer in a slump leaves Hollywood to teach screenwriting at a college on the East Coast, where he falls for a single mom taking classes there.

Hugh Grant is an actor who seemingly can’t reinvent himself. Back in the late 90s, Jim Carrey realised that his comedy days were probably behind him after the mediocre success of Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and instead made the move to riskier projects like sci-fi dramas (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Minds) or psychological thrillers (Number 23). Admittedly, it was a mixed bag of results and he ended up going back to rubbish comedy sequels like Dumb and Dumber To, but it was a period when he felt as fresh as he did when he first burst onto the scene in 1993. Grant has never done this.

Movie Review – Horrible Bosses 2 (2014)

Horrible Bosses 2, 2014

Directed by Sean Anders

Starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey


Dale, Kurt and Nick decide to start their own business but things don’t go as planned because of a slick investor, prompting the trio to pull off a harebrained and misguided kidnapping scheme.

Getting a comedy sequel right is a very, very tricky task and its so often done wrong. For every 22 Jump Street, American Pie 2 or Wayne’s World 2, you get The Hangover 2, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, Son of The Mask, Men in Black II, Blues Brothers 2000, Porky’s Revenge etc. The ratio of bad to good is almost staggering. So the fact that Horrible Bosses 2 is actually half-decent is a miracle unto itself.

The first Horrible Bosses was quite the surprise hit among critics and rightly so.

This Jurassic Park/Ace Ventura Mashup Is Too Perfect!

If the Jurassic World teaser released over the weekend didn’t whip up enough excitement or nostalgia for you with its haunting, single-hand piano rendition of John Williams’ classic theme, then this mashup surely will. Jurassic Park and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls were released only a couple of years apart in the mid ‘90s, so the similar lighting and video quality make this mashup by What’s The Mashup all too seamless. Relive the shock and awe of both of these scenes now! I've also embedded the original scenes below the video.
