Cannes: Larry Charles Teaming With Luke and Owen Wilson on Prison Comedy (Exclusive)

10 May 2016 3:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Borat director Larry Charles and the Wilson brothers are teaming up on a broad comedy that will co-star Martin Lawrence and Olivia Munn. Luke Wilson will star as Howie Summers, a man, falsely accused of a bank robbery, who, thanks to his criminally incompetent lawyer (Owen Wilson) finds himself serving a life sentence in prison. On the advice of his cellmate Slick (Lawrence), he finds a wife on the outside and marries the seemingly sweet, demure woman. When, shortly afterwards, Howie is exonerated, he suddenly finds himself married to a woman he barely knows. Luke Wilson co-wrote the

8 Movies With Ridiculously Long Titles

22 April 2016 7:13 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Some titles just grab your attention and these long-winded, verbose movie titles are certainly unique. Here are 9 movie titles that are hard to say in one breath.

Honorable Mention: “The Fable of the Kid Who Shifted His Ideals to Golf and Finally Became a Baseball Fan and Took the Only Known Cure” (1916)—23 words

 This one actually has the longest movie title ever written, but since it’s just a short rather than a full-length film, it doesn’t count. I’m not clear on what the plot of this was but it’s a short silent comedy about baseball.

 1.“The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” (2007)—10 Words

 This title pretty much sums up the whole movie. If you watch this, you will not be surprised by what happens to Jesse and who kills him. Actually, it’s a pretty good movie and has the best performance that Casey Affleck ever did. »

Grimsby (aka The Brothers Grimsby) movie review: grim indeed

4 March 2016 1:04 PM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A soul-crushing experience: lazy, cheap, lurid, and stupid. Painfully unfunny and pointless. Sacha Baron Cohen now panders to those he once rightly mocked. I’m “biast” (pro): once loved Sacha Baron Cohen

I’m “biast” (con): …but he has tried my patience lately

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Ten years ago, in Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Sacha Baron Cohen held up clueless white-male privilege, racist cruelty, and idiotic sexism (among other petty smallmindednesses) as worthy of ridicule. Seven years ago, in Bruno, he held up straight men’s gay panic (as well as other kneejerk ignorances and superficialities) as deserving of derision. The daring and fearless cultural critic that Baron Cohen was once would be appalled by the crass viciousness of Grimsby. He has made himself the target of his former self with a witless action »

What Borat Actually Did During The Never-Seen Nsfw Porno Shoot Scene

3 March 2016 10:42 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sacha Baron Cohen’s movie Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, which is the greatest movie title ever for a writer trying to make a word count, is full of the actor doing absolutely insane things in the guise of a completely lost foreigner. But there was one scene that ultimately was decided to be even too crazy for the film’s final cut. "Borat" joined in an actual pornographic film shoot. Sacha Baron Cohen was a guest on Conan when he told the story of the scene that he really wanted to include in Borat but eventually decided to cut. Borat needed money and so he joined the cast of an adult film. In the scene, Borat played the room service guy who "accidently" walks in on a couple who are having sex. He’s supposed »

25 great movie comedies that run for 90 minutes or less

2 March 2016 1:52 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Need a good laugh, but only got an hour and a half? Might we recommend this little lot...

I’m of the firm belief that films work most effectively when their runtime is 90 minutes or less. It forces an economy of story and dialogue which propels the film into its best self. No bloated middle, extended ending, or wasted stories here. This goes double for comedies. They should never outstay their welcome. But they seem to be getting longer, as we recently pointed out here.

So to refresh your movie comedy palette, here are 25 films that are 90 minutes or under. I’ve tried to avoid the more obvious ones, and shine a light on those comedies which might have gone a bit unappreciated over the years, but are well worth a hour and a half of your time. This lean runtime isn’t a guarantee of greatness of course, »

'Brothers Grimsby' Red Band Trailer #2 Is Definitely Nsfw

11 February 2016 9:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the March 11 release date getting closer and closer for Sony Pictures' comedy The Brothers Grimsby, the studio has released the second red band trailer for this upcoming comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen. This new footage features some bizarre situations and some R-rated language, which shouldn't be watched by viewers under the age of 18. In related news, Sacha Baron Cohen also stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, where he debuted possibly one of the strangest clips in late-night TV history.

Before the clip aired Jimmy Kimmel revealed that they couldn't show the whole clip on the air, since it is "extremely graphic," so what they did was show a portion of this scene that was safe for TV, and then cut away to show TV viewers the audiences reaction to the scene. Even Jimmy Kimmel and Guillermo Rodriguez went into the audience to watch this apparently outrageous scene unfold. »
