Hi, Jana here,

Awesome news! The tag-team duo that brought us ‘Bridesmaids‘ is back! Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are taking celluloid for another spin. ‘Bridesmaids‘ became a slightly unexpected hit on a global scale for being a female-driven comedy. The upcoming flick is going to team Wiig and Mumolo  as writers again, but they will also produce, star and Wiig is going to try her hand at directing the project which is going to be a first effort for the comedian. TriStar Productions is backing the production and they have described the film as the story of “best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depths, which were, perhaps, not too deep to begin with.”  No release date has been set.

Film Review: ‘Blended’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Blended movie (2)

If twenty years ago, I were to tell you that when I mentioned the name Adam Sandler, you would have turned your nose up and scoffed, you probably wouldn’t believe me. There was a time when Adam Sandler’s name was the first thing you thought about when the subject of comedy came up. With his unforgettable characters on ‘SNL‘ to his hilarious comedy albums to his early films like ‘Billy Madison‘ and ‘Happy Gilmore‘, we all laughed our collective asses off at these films at some point in time with Sandler’s unique brand of humor.

Jana B. here,

 

Will Forte

Fox is adding to its stable of fantastic television shows with ‘Last Man on Earth‘. Funnyman Will Forte (‘Nebraska‘, ‘Magruber‘, ‘Squirrels To The Nuts‘)  created and will star in the show. Executive producing and directing the pilot are the duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller from ‘The Lego Movie‘, ‘Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs‘ and ‘Clone High‘. This project is expected to produce 6-10 episodes and is part of Fox chairman Kevin Reilly’s plan to bypass pilot season altogether and go straight to series and cast projects outside of the traditional January-April pilot cycle.

 sasheer-zamata-michelle-obama

Big news from Saturday Night Live. Sasheer Zamata is the newest regular cast member to be signed to the NBC comedy staple. There are six new comedians being added this year. Instead of focusing on Zamata’s laughable qualities, the focus is on her sex and race. There has been massive criticism that the new batch of SNL cast members lacks not only minorities, but specifically the inclusion of Zamata, who is African American.  Lorne Michaels has been looking into black female comedians for some time now. Kerry Washington’s guest hosting episode saw her run ragged running from skit to skit playing a number of roles from Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce. Of the six new comedians coming on board this season all are white but Noel Wells who is Hispanic-Tunisian. There are only 2 African-Americans already anchored in their positions on the late night sketch show.

Film Review: ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES

Almost a decade later, we have received a sequel to the cult comedy hit, ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy‘, which might have not performed all so well at the box office back in 2004, but has become an instant classic on home video. In these past years, we have seen nearly every actor from that film become super stars with a giant fan-base that has been quoting their dialogue from their film all those years ago. Well, we’re here with ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues‘, and I’m here to say that there are enough gut busting laughs for three entire feature films, and I expect this sequel to boast huge ratings and numbers at the box office come this holiday.

Emile Hirsch to Play John Belushi In Biopic!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 28th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

2013-02-13-9576-11047_Emile_Hirsch_IMG_x900

It’s confirmed. Emile Hirsch has been cast as John Belushi in the untitled biopic from Steve Conrad.  This is HUGE news. I would have never guessed this in a million years. I guess Emile is going to put on some weight, but I do think he is an amazing actor, and can pull this off. Conrad wrote the script as well.

Misty S. Delivers Her Thoughts On ‘Grown Ups 2’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 11th, 2013

Misty S., Here….

grown-ups-2-1

 

Adam Sandler, the founder of Happy Madison films, has used the same formula for every movie that he has ever done. He took some of his unknown buddies that have all started in his first movie “Billy Madison” and every movie since, combined with his ‘Saturday Night Live‘ buddies and throws in some big guest appearances for added entertainment to create a comedic movie that all will love and flock to go see in the theaters. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t. This time, though, it did better than I expected it to. ‘Grown Ups 2‘, the obvious sequel to ‘Grown Ups‘, came and delivered, even with all the press and hype to it. This movie is not really a sequel since it can be watched without seeing the first one, but when one does not know what to call a “sequel”, just add a #2 to it. Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock and Kevin James have the chemistry and natural banter, like they had in the first one, that makes the movie ebb and flow without hardly any slow or unfunny scenes to sit through. There are, however, the same jokes that you see in all of the Happy Madison films and even on ‘Saturday Night Live‘. This is the type of film that when you walk into it, you are already knowledgeable of what is going to happen.

Misty Here….

Admission-Movie

Over the years, we have seen Hollywood recycle the same old storyline for their romantic comedies, where we see an unlikely relationship between two people go through its ups and downs over the course of two hours. As a woman, I know how cliche and unrealistic this is, however I still enjoy the happy ending Hollywood usually provides when I leave the theater. I usually enjoy the warm, fuzzy feeling I get when I leave the theater.  ‘Admission‘ did not disappoint in that amorous feeling as Tina Fey and Paul Rudd did great jobs in the lead, lending plenty of jokes and heartfelt moments.

Misty Here….

26th American Cinematheque Award Honoring Ben Stiller - Arrivals

Martin Short and NBC are partnering up again for a new sitcom that makes Short a game show host. That is one character that Martin should have no problems playing. The show is written, created and stars John Mulaney and is based loosely on Mulaney’s life as a writer. Short will play the boss boss and Mulaney will write jokes for him. All you SNL fans will know Mulaney from his writing on the show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Two of the funniest actresses and comediennes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will join forces and host the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards.  “Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said NBC President, Paul Telegdy.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Hotel Transylvania’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Hotel Transylvania’ is a huge spectacle on the eyes.  With giant colorful monsters, swooping camera pans at every scene, and a somewhat decent voice cast, you’d think ‘Hotel Transylvania’ would be the perfect movie for all ages this Halloween.  However, ‘Hotel Transylvania’  relies more on the visual aspect with keeping little kids entertained to the fullest every second, that the story and characters get left buried underground.  With the other animated monster and zombie films that are out right now, this one ranks low on the list.

Looney Toons Are Returning to the Big Screen!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Warner Bros. is prepping a comeback for the Looney Toons on the big screen.  There was a Looney Toons film back in 2003 called ‘Back in Action’, and I guess with the success of the new Looney Toons cartoon series, they will be making another film.  Jenny Slate, the former SNL cast member will write the script which will be an animated/live action film.  You know, just like the last film was.

‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Returns As a TV Series At CBS!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

How long have we been hearing about a new ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ project?  Probably for the last 10 years or so.  Eddie Murphy, who plays the lead Detective Axel Foley has expressed interest in doing another sequel, but he has stated that he didn’t think the third installment was very good, and was holding out for a better script.  To me, that doesn’t make sense, because his films over the past several years have been awful, maybe with the exception of ‘Dream Girls’.  Instead of a film, we will get a tv series.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Campaign’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I had high hopes for ‘The Campaign’.  It seems like a flawless formula on paper by having Will Ferrell and Zach Galafianakis play bitter political rivalries for an upcoming town election.  Add director Jay Roach to the picture who is known for the ‘Meet the Parents’ and ‘Austin Powers’ series to make a brilliant comedic film.  Unfortunately, after the first half of the film, ‘The Campaign’ nose dives into unfunny and dull dialogue and story telling.  It was as if everybody had to finish the film in two days and they just put together the last part of the film in  matter of hours.  I was disappointed.

Hi Bryan Here….

My favorite stand up comedian of all time is forever Steve Martin.  His bits still make me laugh till this day as if I were hearing them  for the first time all over again.  I laugh so hard I hurt each time I listen to his recordings.  Not to mention his film career, but The Jerk, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Three Amigos are amongst the funniest films ever made.  So while Steve has hosted the Oscars numerous times and hosted SNL numerous times, Mr. Martin gives his long time friend Eddie Murphy some helpful advice on hosting the Oscars.  Enjoy.

Hi Bryan Here….

WOW.  This was a mighty mighty fun blu-ray set to get through.  Took a while as there are hours and hours of extras and commentaries to listen and watch.  It was great watching all of these again.  Some greater than others.  I haven’t watched all of the Superman films since that tin DVD box set came out several years ago.  Oh man do these newly remastered blu-rays look fucking beautiful in HI-DEF.  So, this particular review will be set up by film.  I will go through all eight discs of the set and outline everything you would ever want to know about them.  From the movie itself to the extras and the audio and video quality.  This is one hell of a set and Warner Bros. and DC went above and beyond the call of making one AWESOME home video release in Superman.

Bryan Gets A ‘Hall Pass’!!! (A Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Hall Pass‘ is genuinely funny movie at times.  I think it gets off track here and there, but most of the time it packs gut busting laughs, and that excellent raunchy Farrelly brother humor we have all come to known and love.  This film has a brilliant cast that includes, Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis from SNL, Jenna Fischer from the Office, Christina Applegate, Stephen Merchant, and Richard Jenkins.  I have to say that Sudeikis is definitely the best and funniest actor in the entire film.

Hi Bryan Here…

This is a couple of days old, but if you do not listen to Howard then this will be freshly new to you.  I highly recommend you subscribe to Sirius XM and listen to Howard. He is the world’s greatest interviewer and one hell of a host.  Click Here to Subscribe and find out more.  So, actor Bill Murray was on the show and talked about his party life, films, people he has worked with, and all sorts of other topics.  What peaked my interest the most, was his upcoming films.

Betty White to get her own Comic

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2010

Blue Water Comics will be shipping out another addition to their biography section in comics with the Female Force issue of Betty White.  It should ship in December.

Princess Diana and Michelle Obama have also been part of this Blue Water Comics series.

Betty White was on the Mary Tyler Moore show and the Golden Girls.  Now she is 88 years old and her career has just exploded.  She was a hit on SNL recently and has a new show called Cleveland.  Now she is conquering comics.  Should be a good read.
