Ben Stiller is the "Godfocker" in new 'Fockers' Trailer

Ben Stiller is the
Do fans of projectile vomiting and fans of The Godfather travel in the same circles in other countries? Because, from what I can tell from its international trailer, these are the two primary demographics seemingly being marketed to in the second Meet the Parents sequel, Little Fockers. Actually, I guess any self-respecting Godfather fan wouldn't see a comedy just because it heavily makes reference to the 38-year-old classic by playing bits of Nino Rota's score and having Ben Stiller's character labeled "The Godfocker." Especially if it looked as terrible and bodily fluid-filled as this.

In addition to the awfully unrealistic splattering of lasagna puke there's far-reaching squirting of blood during a turkey-carving scene. And in addition to the Godfather parody there's a too-on-the-nose Jaws spoof involving a ball pit. Hopefully the trailer isn't giving everything away and we can also look forward to poop, a Star Wars gag,

From Small To Silver: Moving To The Big Screen

In honor of this week’s The A-Team, we decided to look back at some of the best and worst films based on TV shows. The A-Team, which hits theatres June 11th, stars Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

Based on the 1980’s television show of the same name, the film tells the story of a group of Iraqi War veterans who are framed for a crime they didn’t commit. Now fugitives on the run, they try to clear their name while finding the guys who set them up. This is one of my most anticipated films of the summer as I’m a huge fan of both Neeson and Cooper.

Let’s look back at some great and not-so-great big movies that come from the small screen.

I just want to clarify, the films I’m talking about are not films that use the

The Decade's Ten Biggest Flameouts

  • Pajiba
One of my favorite things to do in Seriously Random Lists, inexplicably, is to look back at forgotten actors and actresses who, inexplicably, fell into the cracks of the Hollywood studio system and, essentially, disappeared -- I call it the Rae Dawn Chong Effect (formerly the Shelley Long Effect). We're dealing here with only a decade in time, so most of these names -- I suspect -- will still be familiar to most of you, and a few of them still exist on the fringes. But if you compare where they were during the first half of the decade with where they ended up, it's clear that the Rae Dawn Chong Effect has taken hold, and soon they, too, will completely fall into the rabbit hole, never to be seen again, except in straight-to-dvd offerings and as patients in medical dramas.

Review ‘Everybody’s Fine’

Everybody who has been fretting over Robert De Niro’s career of late can collectively exhale a sigh of relief. After carpet bombing the cinematic landscape with stinkers like The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Hide and Seek, Godsend, and Righteous Kill, De Niro finally settles into a nice little film devoid of gimmicks and action. Playing the widowed patriarch of four grown children, De Niro gives a quietly nuanced performance that grounds the film, and makes you remember why you liked him to begin with.

Everybody’s Fine tells the story of a very ordinary family and the events surrounding a holiday gathering. Frank Goode (Robert De Niro) is recently widowed, and has made plans to have all four of his grown children visit him for Christmas. He prepares the house, buys the groceries, purchases a new grill, and awaits their arrival. One by one each child calls and

Seinfeld Knocks Former Sitcom Co-stars
Jerry Seinfeld has made barbed jibes at the expense of his former sitcom co-stars at a surprise comedy club appearance. Guests at the Comedy Cellar in New York's West Village were astonished when the millionaire comic took to the stage. And after a 20-minute stand-up routine, Jerry invited questions from the audience. In reply to a question about a Seinfeld revival, Jerry quipped, "Yes, when all of our careers turn to s**t, and two are down already." His comments were aimed at actor Michael Richards (Kramer), whose sitcom was axed after a poor critical and audience reception, and Jason Alexander (George), whose turn as Boris Badenov in the recent The Adventures Of Rocky & Bullwinkle, doesn't seem to have been the wisest choice.
