Movie Review – Dumb and Dumber To (2014)

19 December 2014 12:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dumb and Dumber To, 2014

Directed by The Farrelly Brothers

Starring Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Kathleen Turner


20 years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry’s newly discovered daughter, who was given up for adoption.

Fans of Dumb and Dumber have been clamouring for a sequel for a long time. The original is thought to be not just one of the funniest comedies of the decade, but possibly of all-time. It was a box office smash and came out at a time when anything Jim Carrey touched turned to gold, but those times have changed. Carrey hasn’t released a decent comedy since Bruce Almighty and his co-star Jeff Daniels has moved on to serious dramas and impressive performances in TV shows like The Newsroom. Twenty years is a long time.

In short, Dumb and Dumber To is embarrassing. »

El Rey Network Cancels Matador

30 November 2014 11:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The original action drama series, Matador, which launched on El Rey Network in July, will not return for a second season. The show was created by Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and ended its 13 episode run in October. Despite initial high hopes for the drama – the pilot of which was directed by network founder Robert Rodriguez – low international sales apparently played a significant part in the network’s decision not to renew. In a statement regarding the cancellation, El Rey Network explained its choice.

“Ultimately, it was a business decision but to be clear, we were very proud of the series on every level – creatively it hit the mark and we are gratified that it celebrated diversity in front of the cameras and behind the scenes. We want to thank everyone involved, from the extraordinarily talented cast and crew to the amazing production team. We appreciate all that they have »

Peter Farrelly on Dumb and Dumber To, Being an Auteur, and Staying PG-13

14 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In 1994, the Farrelly brothers Peter and Bobby came out of nowhere with Dumb and Dumber. Over the next 20 years, they made a name for themselves as champions of lowbrow comedy with movies like Kingpin, There's Something About Mary, and Hall Pass. Now the brothers are going back to the well with Dumb and Dumber To. Vulture spoke with older brother Peter about the movie, making PG-13 movies, the possibility of a Kingpin sequel, and if he and his brother consider themselves auteurs.Why make this sequel now?The stars aligned. We didn’t want to do a sequel right after the first one because we didn’t want to become just the Dumb and Dumber guys, but about five years after the first one came out, we started thinking. It was around the time that they said, "Hey, let’s do a sequel for Something About Mary." We thought, Meh, »

Amanda Bynes' Very Own Show Premiered 15 Years Ago – And Et Was There

16 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Back in 2001, we talked to the rising young star on the set of Nickelodeon's 'The Amanda Show.' What went wrong?

It's hard to believe but October 16 marks 15 years since The Amanda Show -- starring a then-13-year-old Amanda Bynes -- first premiered on Nickelodeon.

Airing from 1999 to 2002, the All That spin-off show turned Bynes, now 28, into a star.

But clearly, it hasn't all been smooth sailing from there. In the last month, the troubled actress has made daily headlines with erratic behavior, explosive allegations and – on October 10 – a return to being held at a psychiatric treatment facility, potentially for up to a year.

Video: Amanda Bynes' Psych Hold Extended to 2 Weeks, Hit 'Breaking Point' With Abuse Allegations

Both Bynes' mental health struggles and trouble with the law are well-documented, but when did it all start going south for the troubled child star?

Let's take a look back at a timeline of her troubles »

Are You Here Hitting September 30th

10 September 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Matthew Weiner of Mad Men fame is coming you way with his feature film writing/directing debut, Are You Here. The bizarre-sounding story is brought to you with a cast you might expect isn’t difficult for someone with Mad Men under his belt to get into his film.

Ben (Zach Galifianakis) inherits a sizable fortune when his father dies, despite the fact that Ben lives off-the-grid and had been estranged from his father. Steve Dalls (Owen Wilson), a womanizer and local television personality, is a friend of Ben’s, and decides to join up with Ben to fight the legal battle brought by Ben’s sister (Amy Poehler), but there’s a lot more going on than that. Check the trailer below for more of an idea of the ins and outs of friendship that are explored in this one.

The comedy certainly has the talent, including an impressive supporting cast, »

Highlights from Daniel Radcliffe's first Comic-Con

30 July 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

“There are two facts that tend to amaze people,” says Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. “That during my whole life I’ve only spent four weeks total in L.A. and that I’ve never been to Comic-Con.”

Thanks to the fantasy thriller Horns (out Oct. 31), in which he plays a young man who sprouts devilish protuberances from his head, the actor made his first appearance at the San Diego fanfest on July 25. A few moments after leaving his inaugural Hall H panel, the 25-year-old shared some of the highlights of his trip.

Jason Sudeikis in Talks to Join Heist Comedy with Galifianakis, WIlson, and Wiig

26 June 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Jason Sudeikis is in talks to join Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, and Kristen Wiig in a heist comedy to be directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite). Sudeikis has worked with all three of the other stars before, appearing with Wilson in Hall Pass and Galifianakis in The Campaign. He worked with Wiig for several years on SNL and was visibly emotional when she bid her farewell to the show. The project, which used to be called Loomis Fargo, is based on an original screenplay by Emily Spivey, but a new script was written by Chris Bowman and Hubbel Palmer. There is no title at the moment. 

The script is based on the true story of a disgruntled armored car driver who stole nearly $20 million from his company’s vault. When his comrades double-cross him, he is left alone and on the run, and his thoughts turn toward revenge.

Jason Sudeikis Joins Untitled Heist Comedy With Zach Galifianakis And Kristen Wiig

26 June 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The best kind of career is the one where you can be funny and relaxed amidst a group of other funny actors with no pressure necessary. The expectations on Jason Sudeikis are that he become one of this generation's comedic leading men, but it seems like he's absolutely chill with having this sort of comedic character actor career where he can enter a movie with a sensible shirt, crack some jokes, then cede the spotlight to others. And with his next project, Sudeikis is not straying far from that formula. The Wrap reports that Sudeikis has joined the untitled heist comedy that is set to star Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson (Hall Pass reunion!). Galifianakis plays an armored truck driver who plots with a team of associates to rob his company of millions. When his partners double cross him and leave him stranded in Mexico, however, he must »

Jason Sudeikis In The Crosshairs For ‘Loomis Fargo’

26 June 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s the night of the tough-to-type surnames as comedy star Jason Sudeikis is to appear alongside his Campaign compadre Zach Galafianakis and Kristen Wiig in a crime drama formerly known as Loomis Fargo, currently untitled. I would have thought this is being changed due to parallels with Fargo and it isn’t clear if it’s a place or the main character’s handle. Either way, the “true” story follows an amateur heister who is betrayed by his fellows before plotting vengeance from Mexico. The actor will play an assassin, presumably a highly affable one based on his turn in Horrible Bosses (the sequel to which, inexplicably, is on the way).

Just as Wiig has been showing her serious side in The Skeleton Twins, so We’Re The Millers lead Sudeikis is getting a chance to broaden his horizons and by the looks of things director Jared Hess is »

Jason Sudeikis Heading For Heist Comedy Loomis Fargo

26 June 2014 3:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sometimes – even in Hollywood – fact is funnier than fiction. Thankfully, in the hands of talented filmmakers, such realities give rise to projects like Loomis Fargo (though the name may change) – which then attract incredible casts. With Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite) at the helm, this Relativity Media production boasts a script by Emily Spivey, Danny McBride, Jody Hill, Hubbel Palmer and Chris Bowman, and is based on a very real heist story.

The tale centres on a reserved man named David, who ekes out his existence driving an armoured truck full of cash every day. He engages in flirtatious banter with the object of his affection – colleague Kelly – and bides his time. Life is quiet and uneventful, until Kelly lures him into a heist scheme that would bag them $20 million. Doing the job, he finds the group hanging him out to dry – so David is soon on the run, and out for revenge. »

The Flickering Myth Reaction – Dumb and Dumber To trailer

12 June 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth writing and editorial team give their thoughts on the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To….

It may be 20 years after the original, but Harry and Lloyd are back for Dumb and Dumber To, the trailer for which was released yesterday.

But what did our writing team think?

Ozzy Armstrong: I might be one of the few people born in the mid 80’s who didn’t enjoy the first film so a sequel seems completely redundant to me. Besides not liking the first Dumb and Dumber, I’m not a massive a fan of Jim Carrey either – so that probably doesn’t help.

As far as the trailer itself goes, I’m assuming that all of the “funny bits” were on show. This only makes me think that the end result will most likely be a big steaming unfunny turd of a picture. In short, I really couldn’t care less. »

Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie Agree To Start 'Sleeping With Other People'

16 May 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After playing second banana on R-rated comedies like Hall Pass and Horrible Bosses, Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis proved his worth as a leading man in his own R-rated laffer, We're The Millers, which took the concept of a family road trip comedy and made it wild with strip teases, loads of drugs, and some male frontal nudity. Hot off the success of that $269 million hit, Sudeikis is saddling up for another crude comedy, and this one will be a raunchy rom-com. Variety reports out of Cannes that Sleeping With Other People has gained financing through Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, which will producing the pic alongside Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez banner. This will be the first film made under their new sister company, the Jessica Elbaum-led Gloria Sanchez Productions.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon Reviving Project Greenlight at HBO

30 April 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Project Greenlight is coming back, folks.  In the midst of the reality TV boom of the late 1990s/early 2000s, HBO got in on the fun with a filmmaker-centric reality show called Project Greenlight.  The show offered an inside look at the filmmaking process, as a contest chose a director and writer to bring an original feature film to fruition.  The brainchild of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, the series ran from 2001-2003 on HBO and then for a third season on Bravo in 2005.  After nearly a decade off the air, though, HBO, Affleck, and Damon are reviving the series for a new season.  Hit the jump for more. Per THR, Affleck notes that Project Greenlight was ahead of its time, and they figured this was an opportune moment to bring it back “now that technology has caught up to the concept.”  Indeed, the advent of digital filmmaking has made »
