Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Grimsby' Gives Lessons on How Not to Get a Town to Like You

15 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sacha Baron Cohen's upcoming spy spoof, "Grimsby," is also a bit of a spoof of the real-life titular town in which it's set -- and residents are none too pleased with their portrayal.

Local media reports indicate that natives of Grimsby, England have been horrified by the way the town is being set up for the film. Though shooting is taking place in a small town just outside of London, not in Grimbsy itself, locals who have caught wind of the production say that producers are aiming to make it looks like the northern England port town -- but with run-down, offensive results.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that residents have seen the Grimsby stand-in filled with "gardens covered in rubbish, graffiti scrawled on walls, cars on bricks and boarded up shops. Pictures that have emerged from the shoot show characters urinating out of windows, drunks passed out on benches »

Everything mentioned from 2002 and 2003 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

19 June 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s been a dozen years now since 2002, but thanks to VH1′s I Love the 2000s, we can be reminded of what a great year it actually was. Serena Williams was the No. 1 tennis player in the world, Jennifer Lopez’s latest breakup was in the headlines, and zombies were the latest craze at the movies.

Clearly, much has changed in the world since then.

Of course, in all seriousness, VH1 also spotlighted plenty of other nostalgia-worthy phenomena hyper-specific to 2002 and 2003—like the return of the movie musical, Nelly’s evergreen musical reason to take your clothes off, and »

The Hooligan Factory Review

9 June 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

You can’t help but feel that not only are these cockney, Nick Love infused gangster flicks a thing of the past, but so is the opportunity to ridicule them. We’ve thankfully moved beyond the films that were genuinely of this ilk, and now the chance to parody them feels contrived and unnecessary, in a Britain that has since moved on significantly, and a whole culture that’s almost a product of a bygone era. Nonetheless, that hasn’t stopped Nick Nevern taking it upon himself to create such a film, teaming up with writer Michael Lindley to present The Hooligan Factory.

Nevern also takes on one of the lead roles, playing Dex – a former football hooligan who is released from prison, only to join forces with his old gang and pick up where they left off. On his first day of freedom he bumps into the opportunist Danny »

9 May 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Seth Rogen has had his fingerprints all over comedy ever since emerging on the scene as a teenager.

Taken under Judd Apatow's wing early in his career following "Freaks and Geeks," Rogen has had memorable supporting turns in "Undeclared" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" -- in addition to success as a writer -- before breaking out in 2007's smash hit "Knocked Up." Since then, the only way you could've missed him is if you've been living under a rock.

From his early collaborations with Sacha Baron Cohen to his surprising connection to "The Simpsons," here are 23 things you probably don't know about Seth Rogen.

1. Rogen was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1982 to Sandy Belogus, a social worker, and Mark Rogen, who works for non-profit organizations.

2. His parents met in Israel, and he has described them as "radical Jewish socialists" at least "in American terms."

3. It's not surprising, then, »

Muppets Most Wanted Review

17 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Given the deserved critical acclaim of The Muppets preceding endeavour, it was something of a concern to see lead star and co-writer Jason Segel opt out of the opportunity to get involved in their latest project Muppets Most Wanted. However who better to pass on screenwriting duties to, than the director himself James Bobin – as the man who co-wrote the likes of Flight of the Conchords and Da Ali G Show teams up with the returning Nicholas Stoller, to make a triumphant return into the eccentric, surreal world of Jim Henson’s most renowned creation.

Picking up moments where the last feature left off, Kermit the Frog (Steve Whitmire) is approached by a seemingly shrewd businessman named Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais), who hopes to tempt The Muppets into a world tour. However it soon transpires that he is in fact the sidekick to notorious villain – and Kermit doppelgänger – Constantine (Matt Vogel »

'Ali G: Rezurection' premiere: What did you think of Ali G's return?

26 February 2014 8:45 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If you were a fan of "Da Ali G Show," you should be more than happy to have it back on the air. "Ali G: Rezurection" has premiered on Fxx, taking the episodes of the original series, including those that never aired in the U.S., and putting them out there for a new audience to consume. Sacha Baron Cohen, who created and stars as Ali G, even recorded some new material for the show.

Considering "Da Ali G Show" ended in 2004, the timing on "Rezurection" is perfect. College-aged kids weren't even teenagers by the time it was over. Now they're a perfect target for Cohen's brand of humor.

What did you think of "Ali G: Rezurection"? Is Ali just as much fun as you remember? If this was your first exposure, do you plan on tuning in again? Sound off in the comments below.

"Ali G: Rezurection" airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p. »

Father Ted, The It Crowd and Peep Show are among the classic Channel 4 shows that will be removed from Netflix UK and LoveFilm Instant.
