We laugh with cancer. Not at it.
The "Funny People" soundtrack list acts as the backbone of the film's appealing character. If you're a fan of The Beatles, in any way, shape, or form, then this soundtrack…
These ten funniest comedy duos range from classic duos who have stood the test of time to news partnerships that are just getting started. Some of these comedy duos made…
“I hate Adam Sandler movies.”
I used to get pissed off when I’d hear someone say that. First of all, it should be “Sandler’s movies,” not “Sandler movies.” Not that I’m a grammar Nazi, but come on! Second, what‘s not to like?
When pressed, most Sandler haters would reply with something along the lines of “his movies are stupid.” Of course they’re stupid. Most comedies are. But Sandler’s don’t pretend to be anything more. If you want something “intellectual,” go whack off to Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I prefer to laugh.
Paramount must realize the colossal turkey they have on their hands with G.I. Joe because now they're trying a new marketing approach… targeting dummies. A few weeks ago they directed their efforts on the Jersey Shore , now the LA Times is reporting that the advertising is focusing heavily on mid-America. The film is apparently embedded in the Kid Rock concert tour and advertising on giant screens in the Mall Of America. The message of this campaign being, it is your patriotic duty to see this movie. All right, fine. I love my country so I'll see this movie. Even though the post-traumatic stress will probably leave me a shell of my former self.

Seems like 9 times out of 10, the headliner on a feature film comedy has his or her roots in the stand up comedy circuit. Think about the mega-bankable big…
Judd Apatow has a knack for finding women that manage to be very funny and incredibly hot at the same time for his movies. For Funny People, he has found Aubrey Plaza, and up and coming actress and comedian who plays Seth Rogen's love interest in the film. She also stars on the small screen in NBC's Parks and Recreation. As a small side note, her Sarah Silverman impression is dead on.A word from Aubrey: "Wilmington is pretty small. There wasn't a ton to do there, but it definitely made me more creative because I had to kind of find my own thing to do, which is why I started making weird, funny videos."So growing up in a small and boring town is the secret to creating a hot and funny personality… Very interesting. Check out more photos of Aubrey after the jump!
George Simmons in "Re-Do" from Justin LongThis clip from a movie inside a movie features Adam Sandler playing George Simmons as Craig the workaholic in the high-concept comedy Re-Do. In an effort to start over, a wizard turns Craig into a baby with an adult head. I don't know who this wizard is but I certainly hope he gets his wizard license revoked for such blatant and inexcusable wizard malpractice. I guess we'll never know since the film isn't really real. And just in case you're interested in purchasing the first season of 'Yo Teach' you can get it at the NBC Store.
