You like a little kink with your comedy?
Party Down (2009) Yup. I’m recommending Party Down again. Besides being one of the best comedy series of the last decade, this short-lived sitcom also starred Martin Starr and had an orgy themed episode in season 2. Also streaming is that episode’s inspiration, »

Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt have signed on to co-star in Todd Rohal 's latest, an outlandish yet poignant comedy about a pair of battling brothers who attempt to honor their ailing father by taking a troop of boys on a last ditch camping trip that goes wildly wrong. The film marks the first time comedic foils Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt will be sharing the big screen. Joining the team for the ensemble comedy are Rob Riggle, Maura Tierney & Patrice O'Neal.
The still untitled film is written and will be directed by emerging comedic auteur Todd Rohal, hot on the heels of the Sundance success of his second feature film, The Catechism Cataclysm. The film, which is loosely based on Todd Rohal's experiences growing up, begins production this week.
If there’s one iron-clad rule in marketing, movies or otherwise, it’s “Sex Sells.” If there is another ironer-cladder rule in marketing, it’s “People Notice Boobs.” Or to take the advice one step further, “Boobs boobs boobs.” You are now all licensed postermakers. The new sideboob poster for Sarah Michelle Gellar’s show Ringer got me thinking (first about boobs and then) “What are the all-time most blatant uses of boobs in posters?” From posters entirely centered around the lead actresses’ cleavage to subtler posters that still go out of their way to make sure those boobs are clearly noticeable, here’s a list of The 30 Most Blatant Uses Of Boobs In Movie Posters: 1. Cruel Intentions 2. Romance And Cigarettes 3. L.A. Confidential 4. I Know What You Did Last Summer 5. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer 6. Bandidas 7. Step Up 8. Step Up 2 9. Blue Crush 10. Beowulf 11. Tomb Raider 12. Tomb Raider »

Although John Waters only makes the occasional, fleeting reference to his movies in his new book, Role Models still offers an oblique insight into his filmmaking career. Allegedly, Waters is writing about the people who have influenced him the most in his life, but his chapters are structured more like an autobiography than portraits of the artists as who they really are.
Waters is one of those filmmakers whose careers you can divide very cleanly in half without any argument by anyone: The first half being his “dirty” movies from Hag in a Black Leather Jacket (1964) to Polyester (1981); followed by the second half of his more “respectable” work beginning with Hairspray (1988) to his last film, A Dirty Shame (2004).
However, the one thing that’s been truly consistent throughout Waters’ entire career has been his unbridled ambition toward mainstream acceptance. While that ambition is hidden beneath layers of filth in his pre-Hairspray films, »
