Ken Jeong's Life Would Probably Be Just Like His Show Dr. Ken If He Hadn't Become Famous

23 September 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ken Jeong is enjoying the best of both worlds with his ABC comedy, Dr. Ken. The actor, 47, who is a licensed medical practitioner, plays a doctor on the series who is interested in getting into comedy. "This show is essentially what my life would be like if The Hangover had never happened and I stayed at the Hmo I worked at," Jeong tells People in this week's issue. In one episode, "my TV wife said, 'Ken, I support you doing comedy,' and it was basically words that my real-life wife had said to me. There are so many moments »

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

The Lego Batman Movie is set for release on February 10th 2017 and sees Will Arnett joined in the voice cast by Michael Cera (Superbad) as Robin, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Batgirl, Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes (Spectre »

The First Trailer For New Comedy Bastards Arrives

16 September 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Please enable Javascript to watch this video

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson are men in search of answers in the new trailer for the upcoming comedy film, Bastards. The project is the directorial debut of The Hangover cinematographer Lawrence Sher, and is the first feature-length script from Justin Malen (Trophy Wife) to reach the big screen. With high stakes and hijinks, the movie sets itself as some comedic relief for the new year, with its post-Christmas release window.

The winning elements of this trailer include the way in which the collection of older men approached by Peter and Kyle Reynolds recall their mother (Glenn Close). These wistful memories, dripping with lust, serve to teach these young siblings a valuable lesson – that the image they hold of their mother is not the only version of her that ever existed.

While it is doubtful that Bastards will emerge as ‘Comedy Of The »

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms are two figures that have found great success in the area of R-rated raunchy comedies, with films like Wedding CrashersThe HangoverHall Pass, and We're The Millers on their combined resumés. Now they're set to combine their formidable comedic forces on Bastards, a film that will serve as the feature directorial debut of The Hangover cinematographer Lawrence Sher and was written by rising star Justin Malen (Office Christmas Party, Baywatch).

You can check out the brand-spanking new Bastards trailer right here:

The premise, about a couple of brothers on a road trip to find their biological father, is simple and effective. The cast of supporting players, which includes J.K. Simmons, Katt Williams, Ving Rhames, and Glenn Close, is promising. In short, Bastards looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Bastards will arrive at a theater near you on January 27.

Owen Wilson & Ed Helms are Brothers in Trailer for Comedy 'Bastards'

15 September 2016 7:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Who your father is, or isn't, is totally irrelevant." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for the comedy Bastards, starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms as fraternal twin brothers who go on a search for their father when their mother reveals she doesn't know who he really is. This is the feature directorial debut of a cinematographer who has worked on tons of comedies like The Hangover and The Dictator. Also starring Katie Aselton, J.K. Simmons, Terry Bradshaw, Glenn Close, Ving Rhames, Ryan Cartwright, Katt Williams, Retta and Bill Irwin. This looks like your standard goofy comedy with lots of dirty jokes. Here's the first official trailer for Lawrence Sher's Bastards, direct from WB's YouTube: Upon learning that their mother has been lying to them for years about their allegedly deceased father, two fraternal twin brothers (Owen Wilson & Ed Helms) hit the road in order to find him. »

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms Unite as Brothers in Bastards Trailer

15 September 2016 6:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two brothers go on a quest to find the father they always thought was dead in the first trailer for Bastards, arriving in theaters January 27, 2017. Ed Helms (The Hangover films) and Owen Wilson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Zoolander 2) star in Alcon Entertainment's comedy Bastards, under the direction of Lawrence Sher. The film marks the directorial debut of the veteran cinematographer, who had worked on The Hangover trilogy and, most recently, War Dogs, starring Miles Teller and Jonah Hill.

Helms and Wilson play Peter and Kyle Reynolds, two brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father, learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know. This R-rated comedy was originally in development at Paramount Pictures five years ago, before it shifted over to Warner Bros., »

Ed Helms and Owen Wilson are ‘Bastards’ in First Trailer

15 September 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After being a go-to cinematographer for a good amount of today’s comedies (The Hangover trilogy, I Love You, Man, Garden State), Lawrence Sher has now taken a different gig behind the camera: director. His debut as a helmer will be arriving early next year with Bastards, teaming two of his past collaborators, Ed Helms and Owen Wilson.

The Warner Bros. comedy follows them as brothers who only recently figured out their father in fact didn’t die when they were young, as their mother (Glenn Close) told them, but is alive and well, although unknown to them. With J.K. Simmons and Terry Bradshaw playing potential fathers, the first trailer has now landed, which sells about as decent of a comedy as we can expect to receive in the early months of the year.

Check out the trailer below.

Bastards opens on January 27, 2017.

Owen Wilson And Ed Helms Look For Their Long Lost Dad In First Trailer For ‘Bastards’

15 September 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I’ve always been interested in comedies with a little bit more on the bone than a lot of laughs and something that speaks with some emotional truth,” Lawrence Sher, a longtime cinematographer turned directors told USA Today. “Particularly as we reach middle age, we often look to our parents and our family as to what the hell went wrong here.”

A veteran who’s worked on comedies like “Garden State,” “War Dogs” and “The Dictator,” Sher’s transition from Dop to helmer is for “Bastards” a new “Wedding Crashers”/“The Hangover”—esque comedy starring Ed Helms, Owen Wilson and J.K.

7 September 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Luke Benward has boarded the New Line comedy “Life of the Party” starring Melissa McCarthy.

He joins co-stars Julie BowenMaya RudolphGillian Jacobs, Jacki Weaver, Debby Ryan, and Matt Walsh.

The film is similar in tone to the late Rodney Dangerfield’s 1986 movie “Back to School.” The only other details to surface so far are McCarthy’s character name, Deanna, and the description of Walsh’s character — he is “always wearing golf pants.”

McCarthy wrote “Life of the Party” with her husband Ben Falcone, who will direct the movie. Mike Disco (“Horrible Bosses”) and David Siegel (“The Hangover”) will serve as executive producers on the New Line Cinema film.

Bad Moms Review

30 August 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bad Moms is too maudlin for its raunchy convictions, and too coarse to be morally-decent, it’s a meddling, frustratingly indecisive lowbrow R-rated comedy that severely lacks the wit, charm and endearing characters found in writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s winning script for The Hangover. Formulaic when it needs to be button-pushing, and mild when […]

Sex, Drugs and Privilege: Inside Controversial New Movie 'White Girl'

30 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Near the start of the gritty New York drama White Girl, the film's teenage heroine Leah (played by Homeland actress Morgan Saylor) stops the Puerto Rican boy she's making out with from riding his hand up her thigh. "What kind of girl do you think I am?" she asks him flirtatiously. Immediately, we smash cut to her almost naked up against a wall, fully enjoying getting it on with the guy, in a state of blissful abandon.

This Sundance sensation, hailed by many as as a modern-day Kids, revolves around Leah's teasing question, »

War Dogs review – gun runners Jonah Hill and Miles Teller off target

25 August 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Todd Phillips’ excitable real-life story of two twentysomething dudes keeps telling us how bad arms dealing is but how cool they are

Todd Phillips’ smug bro adventure stars Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as two adorable twentysomething arms dealers having some pretty wild times in Miami and Fallujah. It puts an excitable spin on the true story of David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli: young stoner dudepreneurs who got rich brokering minor arms deals to the Us military and were finally busted for flogging dodgy Chinese ammo. (The movie is based on a 2011 Rolling Stone article about their exploits.)

With its generic hints of The Hangover (which Phillips directed) and the boiler-room machismo of The Wolf of Wall Street (which took Jonah Hill to the big league), this is a strangely tiresome film with little in the way of comedy, preoccupied with reassuring the audience of its savvy satirical credentials by »

Movie Review – War Dogs (2016)

24 August 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

War Dogs, 2016.

Directed by Todd Phillips.

Starring Miles Teller, Jonah Hill, Ana de Armas and Kevin Pollak.

Synopsis:

David Packouz (Teller) is a down-and-out masseuse, living with his girlfriend with few ambitions, and a baby on the way. At a funeral for an old school friend he bumps into his childhood best friend Efraim (Hill), and soon enough Efraim has him embroiled in his arms dealership. As the business grows, so does the danger, money and conflicts. All based on a true story.

They often say that those who can write great comedy can write great drama. The same can be applied to those who write mediocre comedy and, thusly, mediocre drama. Adam McKay showed how a pro could move from the silliness of Anchorman to the high stakes of Oscar-bait The Big Short.

Movie Review – Bad Moms (2016)

24 August 2016 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bad Moms, 2016.

Written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Starring Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Applegate, Jada Pinkett Smith and Jay Hernandez.

Synopsis:

When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.

The fact that writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore make a conscious effort to state their film’s title in excess of ten times throughout is a key indicator of just how remarkably false it is: an awkward and vapid droid carved from the entrails of the equally dour The Hangover franchise, Bad Moms is so disastrously unfunny and tonally misjudged that every time the leading ladies bellow out their newly-adopted branding, you can’t help but grimace.

‘War Dogs’ review: “An enjoyable, if somewhat unbelievable action/ comedy”

23 August 2016 8:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

War Dogs review: Miles Teller and Jonah Hill lead this enjoyable and extremely funny true story…

Our War Dogs review by Paul Heath, August 2016.

War Dogs is the latest film from Todd Phillips, the director of The Hangover trilogy, a series of films that thankfully came to an end back in 2013 after making a total of $1.4 billion worldwide. The last movie in that series is enough to make most cinema-goers to head for the proverbial hills when the mention of a new Phillips movie hits, but there’s one thing that you can’t deny this filmmaker for – his ability to execute a comedy. Here, Phillips turns to the likes of Scorsese or De Palma for inspiration and brings a very true story to screens, albeit mixed with his customary wit and laughs aplenty.
