Title: Best Night Ever Directors: Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer Starring: Crista Flanagan, Desiree Hall, Samantha Colburn, Eddie Ritchard Filmmakers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have been accused of plenty of crimes against cinema in their careers, so one might not think that their latest effort, “Best Night Ever,” would necessarily hold much surprise. As the writer-directors behind slapdash spoofs like “Date Movie,” “Disaster Movie,” “Meet the Spartans” and others — overwhelmingly critically panned, all — they’ve traded in creatively bankrupt, stick-poke, air-quote satire for more than a half-dozen years. And yet “Best Night Ever” is notable, in that it’s essentially the duo’s first nominally original, non-directly-referential screenplay. So does the [ Read More ]

Anything that happens in Vegas. Stays in Vegas.
Hilarious comedy “Best Night Ever” is another movie about a group of friends partying in Las Vegas and obviously things do go wrong.
This is the first original comedy from directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the team that directed spoofs like “Vampires Suck,” “Disaster Movie, and “Meet the Spartans.” However, this movie does sort of mock “The Hangover,” “Project X,” “Spring Breakers,” and “Bridesmaids.”
During the film’s press day earlier this week, actresses Desiree Hall, Samantha Colburn, Eddie Ritchard and Crista Flanagan joined Latino-Review for an interview in a limo. As we’re riding around the city, we talked about the crazy scenes, Las Vegas activities, shooting in public, cut scenes and even trying to order a salad from burger restaurant In N’ Out.

Serial spoofers Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (“Meet the Spartans,” “Disaster Movie”) hit rock bottom last year while scraping the bottom of the barrel with “The Starving Games.” But that hasn’t stopped the writing-directing duo from digging even deeper. Although “Best Night Ever,” their latest effort, is billed as their first “original” feature, this aggressively frenetic but dismally unfunny farrago plays like a found-footage version of “Bridesmaids” meet “The Hangover.” It seems painfully obvious that, instead of satirizing other, better movies, Friedberg and Seltzer have opted this time to merely imitate them. The end result could be their lowest grosser ever.
Shot semi-guerrilla-style in various Nevada and California locales over a three-week period, “Best Night Ever” details the girls-gone-wild misadventures of four young women during an ill-starred all-night bachelorette party in Las Vegas. Bride-to-be Claire (Desiree Hall) is accompanied by her snobbish sister Leslie (Samantha Colburn), party-hearty buddy Zoe »

Olympics Opening Ceremony: Rowan Atkinson causes biggest Twitter spike
Mr Bean launched as a live-action sitcom in 1989 and originally ran until 1995.
The new animated shorts will be posted to Endemol's Mr Bean YouTube channel.
In addition to online distribution, the new Mr Bean series will be shopped to TV broadcasters internationally from this autumn.
In 2012, Atkinson admitted that he is unsure if he will ever reprise the character for a new live-action project. »
Upon my initial viewing, the first of Season 5′s two episodes left me a bit cold. It seemed dark. And quite plotty. But as I revisited it this afternoon, I better appreciated the burden it shouldered, taking the ball from Season 4′s interim showrunners and scrambling back to the old playbook. (Like Britta, I’m lousy with analogies. I blame owls.)
Thus, a “reset” — or repiloting, as when a TV series reinvents itself midstream — was called for, »
