In what sounds to be just a slightly different take on Horrible Bosses with slightly schlubbier dudes, Jason Sudekis is in final talks to john Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig,  and Owen Wilson in Loomis Fargo. The film, directed by Napoleon Dynamite‘s Jared Hess, follows the true story of an armored car driver who was in on a heist, was betrayed, and then was dead set about getting even with his cohorts.

Deadline called the film a “comedy” in its headline, then a drama in the first sentence of its article. GET IT TOGETHER, DEADLINE! I can’t imagine a scenario in which this is a straight drama, but I could see some Bottle Rocket-type elements to it that could blur the line.

Here’s to hoping that this film is a little more Napoleon Dynamite than Gentlemen Broncos. Or better yet, something better than both those films were.

For his feature film debut, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has made probably the furthest thing from Mad Men. Starring Owen Wilson as a horny weatherman and Zach Galifianakis as the crazy guy, Are You Here seems to hit all of the marks you’d expect in an Owen Wilson/Zach Galifianakis buddy movie but, since its Wiener, this movie will also feature a plot and emotions.

After his dad dies, Galifianakis inherits everything and gets into a legal battle with bitter sister, Amy Poehler. Rather than  just murdering a giraffe like he did the last time his father passed away, he leans on Wilson for friendship and support as the legal battle intensifies.

Meanwhile Owen Wilson spends the film trying to get on top of the dad’s young, hot widow. Despite its creative pedigree, it is an Owen Wilson movie after all.

Longtime sexual icon Owen Wilson has made the logical leap to producing premium television, and in a way that is hilariously consistent with his Royal Tenenbaums character, Eli Cash.

Wilson will get a producer credit for WonderWorld, a new Starz series that will examine the seedy, gangster-laden world of porn in the 1980′s. There’s no indication he’s appearing in the series, so you’ll just have to continue having your weird fantasies.

WonderWorld will follow two button-down FBI agents as they crusade, at Ronald Reagan’s behest, to rid the world of pornography. Oh man, they are gonna be so bummed when they learn about the Internet.

The whole thing sounds like it’s really up Starz’ alley, and with the deft production hand of Own Wilson, how could you go wrong?

The casting of Owen Wilson, Steve Martin, and Jack Black against the backdrop of competitive bird watching had me excited to check out the trailer for The Big Year. But only because I assumed it was a new Wes Anderson film. But then I saw the fat one fall down and realized my mistake. The Big Year is actually the latest from Th Devil Wears Prada director, David Frankel, and follows three men in various states of crises as they take a year off in search of birds… and perhaps, themselves.

I would like to do the same but instead of birds, I’d go in search of McRib.

Boring, stupid, and full of bad creative decisions.

The post Review: Cars 2 appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
A lot of people think Cars is Pixar’s worst movie. I disagree. I think A Bug’s Life is far worse. Cars 2 is a real contender though. It’s boring, stupid and full of bad creative decisions. Aw man, now I’m going to have to watch Bug’s Life again and see if it’s still worse than Cars 2.

Cars 2 is about the world of international superspy cars. While Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is in a race, Mater (Larry the Cable Guy the Voice Actor) gets mistaken for an undercover spy. Finn McMissle (Michael Caine) and Holly Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer) take Mater along on their mission assuming all the way that the dumb tow truck act is his cover.

New ‘Cars 2′ Trailer Ends With A Douche

Okay, bad creative decision #1: Making Cars a spy movie. The whole point of Cars 1 was to slow down and appreciate life. Now it’s a busy generic caper. Bad creative decision #2: Cars with guns. Something about this feels wrong to me. It’s not exciting, for one. Also once you put guns on cars, they’re not even really cars anymore. They’re toys and gadgets but less of a story, and much less of a movie.

Lightning becomes the B story to all this nonsense. You hardly see him race at all! Of course he doesn’t believe Mater’s spy stories so they argue and Lightning makes Mater feel bad and then Lightning feels bad for making Mater feel bad. They tack on this message of friendship but it’s got no heart.

3 photosI Wish 'Cars 2' Looked As Awesome As Its Poster Art

The plot that ties Lightning’s race to the spies is ridiculous too. Miles Axlerod (Eddie Izzard) is testing out his new alternative fuel via this international race. The villains are oil drillers who want to sabotage the clean alternative fuel. Bad creative decision #3: Political message in a Pixar movie. I know it’s all environmentally conscious to support alternative fuel, but come on. This is not the way to educate kids on driving a hybrid.

The pseudo-foreign locations look great, especially a Tokyo of cars. The Monte Carlo and London settings look nice too, though you lose so much color in the 3D version. Along with those artistic visions come immature cultural stereotypes too. Japan is full of fast talking anime characters on video screens.

Cars 2 is the most childish Pixar movie too. There are so many pee and poop jokes and car farts. It’s still lowbrow even if you call it leaking oil. Mater basically gets off in a Japanese bidet. It’s fine if kids like this but they’ll outgrow it. They like Toy Story and Up too but they keep watching them and buying the new special editions every time they re-release.

The short before the film is a Toy Story short, which is also silly but it has more inspired jokes than Cars 2. At least the “Toy Story Toon” helps me deal with Toy Story 3. I don’t have to accept that as the final word on Buzz and Woody, because we could always see them again in short form.

Today a new trailer for Cars 2 dropped, exciting fans of unnecessary sequels the world over. There’s talking cars, spy action, Michael Caine, and America’s Favorite Funnyman Larry The Cable Guy.

From what I can tell, this trailer does have some new footage in it. So if you’ve been clamoring for a few extra scraps from the Cars 2 table, you’re welcome. You only have a month and a half left to wait for the whole thing, since the movie is coming out on June 24th. Memorize the date. Or, you know, don’t.

Cannes Review: Midnight In Paris http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/cannes-review-midnight-in-paris/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/cannes-review-midnight-in-paris/#comments Wed, 11 May 2011 18:24:30 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211559 May be a love letter to Woody Allen’s favorite era and its greatest artists, but it’s superficial and dull.

The post Cannes Review: Midnight In Paris appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Midnight in Paris is one of the gimmicky Woody Allen movies, as opposed to the straight relationship/one-liner movies or the occasional serious ones. I like those, like Annie Hall, Purple Rose of Cairo and Mighty Aphrodite that shatter the fourth wall. The only problem with Midnight is it’s not funny like the previous examples.

Gil (Owen Wilson) is a frustrated writer, successful in Hollywood but he really wants to be a novelist. Yes, another whiny, self-loathing writer character. He’s in Paris with his wife Inez (Rachel McAdams) planning their wedding. When the clock strikes twelve, Gil is able to visit the past and meet famous literary and artistic figures.

It’s a good idea, modern day Woody Allen surrogate hanging out with highbrow pop culture figures. They just don’t make any jokes. Ernest Hemingway (Corey Stoll) has tough love wisdom but it’s not funny. Zelda Fitzgerald (Alison Pill) is an oversensitive lush and F. Scott (Tom Hiddleston) is so modest it’s hard to get much out of his appearance. Maybe if I paid more attention in high school English I’d get it.

‘Midnight In Paris’ Trailer: Now It’s Owen Wilson’s Turn To Imitate Woody Allen

The real story is that Gil falls for Adriana (Marion Cotillard) in the past. She’s one of Pablo Picasso’s lovers, but of course the temperamental artist doesn’t appreciate her like modern day romanticist Gil. It’s not quite as typical as the usual older man/younger muse relationship Allen loves to write about, and there’s also nothing moving about it.

Don’t cry for Inez though. She’s pretty awful in the typical “why are they together in the first place” way of romantic comedies. She only does what she wants and even complains if gifts aren’t to her liking. Gil just babbles to try to keep her satisfied, and there’s no wi buried in those frantic rants.

The only payoff for Gil’s trips to the past are when he’s able to tell off a know-it-all snob who keeps lecturing the group about art. Otherwise, Gil just makes excuses to explain why he’s out all night. He gives artists their own ideas, since he’s from the future and knows the great works they haven’t written yet. You know, like Marvin Berry in Back to the Future.

The ultimate point about our obsession with so-called Golden Ages is obvious, and Gil still babbles his way to that conclusion. Midnight in Paris may be a love letter to Woody Allen’s favorite era and its greatest artists, but it’s superficial and dull.

Some projects get stuck in Development Hell, and others get stuck in Development Super Hell. Super Hell is worse than regular Hell, just so we’re on the same page.

One of those unlucky Super Hell projects is the remake of 1947′s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty starring Danny Kaye. Over the years, Fox’s proposed reboot has collected more comedian interest than a hot asian girl at a stand-up club wearing a tight Ghostbusters t-shirt. Jim Carrey, Owen Wilson, Mike MyersWill Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen have all circled around the title role at one point. Now add Ben Stiller to the list.

After writer Steve Conrad penned a completely new version of the remake script, Stiller expressed interest. With Stiller on-board, Fox will scramble for a “cinematic director,” hoping to get the cameras rolling this Fall. Walter Mitty is based on a famous James Thurber short story about a mild-mannered daydreamer who imagines himself in heroic situations. I suspect this new version will contain more fart jokes in those daydreams than in any previous adaptation. (Deadline)

Woody Allen has done it again. The trailer for his latest, Midnight In Paris, has debuted and this may be his most ludicrous plot yet.

In the film, Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams play a young, engaged couple spending time in Paris. Wilson’s character develops a fondness for wandering alone around the City Of Lights. He then finds that he prefers to do that over spending time with Rachel McAdams. See what I mean? That’s less believable than Sleeper.

The two posters released today represent the yin and yang of cinema. The id and ego. Highbrow and lowbrow. They’re, like, totally opposite, man. First up is the Fast 5 poster. Featured on that poster are a lot of bald men who look very angry with whoever is looking at them on that poster. Tyrese Gibson is so mad that you’re looking at him that he is seriously considering shooting you. And I don’t blame him. Stop staring. It features the people more than the cars, which is a first. Can Paul Walker and Vin Diesel sell more tickets than Japanese sports cars? We shall see. (Movie Web)

Now, in this poster for Woddy Allen’s latest, Midnight in Paris, there are no cool cars of any kind and Vin Diesel is literally NOWHERE on the poster. In fact, the only person on this poster is Owen Wilson, who has been proven by scientists to be the exact opposite of Vin Diesel. Also, you’ll notice a pretty strong Starry Night motif in the sky. As best I can tell in the Fast 5 poster, there are zero nods or references to Van Gogh paintings. However, if you should see one, please put it in the comments. In fact, the only thing these movies have in common is my desire never to see either one. (Playlist)

Review: Hall Pass http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-hall-pass/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-hall-pass/#comments Fri, 25 Feb 2011 15:11:41 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29725 It’s not golden era Farrellys like Kingpin but it’s good.

The post Review: Hall Pass appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

I went into Hall Pass thinking I’d have to accept the stereotype and appreciate what comedy could be mined from it, if any. Personally, I don’t have a desire to not be in a committed relationship. But, I know there’s this public fantasy about getting a free pass, so that could be funny. The film actually has a clever perspective and good values.

Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are married men in a rut, or two separate ruts to be accurate. Rick’s wife Maggie (Jenna Fischer) hears about hall pass from her friend Dr. Lucy (Joy Behar). It’s actually designed to make the men appreciate their wives when they inevitably try and fail to seduce young hotties.

Already this is a pro-relationship movie. It’s manipulative but the idea is to reinforce the value on monogamy. The misguided intention of that is funnier than any bickering opposites attract rom-com. Rick doesn’t want the pass. I’m with that. Fred’s more eager when his wife Grace (Christina Applegate) follows suit but you know he’s going to learn his lesson. Sudeikis is the ultimate comedy buddy. He’s the perfect instigator but never obnoxious.

The big joke is not to have a raucous wife-free party, but rather that these guys are total posers. Just the introduction of “Day 1” is hilarious. Then the delays and the setbacks take up half the week. The film doesn’t overstay the premise. They do the joke and then cut to the next development. Old guys get tired, boom. They suck at the bar scene, boom. The guys who want that party fantasy may be disappointed, but it speaks to me.

The group of friends is really funny. Flats (J.B. Smove), Gary (Stephen Merchant), and Hog-Head (Larry Joe Campbell) make a classic group of funny companions, even though they unfortunately disappear halfway through. The plot kicks in a little with Rick’s real prospect, Leigh (Nicky Whelan), but it’s always on point. These guys get into hilarious trouble trying to cash in their hall pass.

This is the Farrelly Brothers’ best movie since There’s Something About Mary. I know, I know, even better than Stuck on You. They’re more subdued here. It’s not about crushing pussy or penises stuck in zippers. The penises here are tame compared to Forgetting Sarah Marshall or Walk Hard. Fake chow funny because it makes sense (I’m opposed to it, ladies, but I get why it exists.) Jerking off illustrates the mature feelings of a married man. The joke is the reactions to it, not a cum shot. Okay, there are two poop scenes but the first is somewhere I’ve never seen it before, and the second is earned with character.

It’s not golden era Farrellys like Kingpin but it’s good. Fischer and Applegate have thankless parts. They’re really the cutaways to have the serious relationship talk. They give some counterpoint to what’s going on with the guys, but it’s not funny or perceptive.

There are two scenes where characters’ embarrassing conversations are caught by surveillance. That’s redundant and not that funny either time.

Hall Pass is the first real comedy of the year. It’s worth staying for the credits for another scene with Gary and Hog-Head. There’s a blooper near the end of the credits that’s not great but it pays off the jerking off joke. And there’s a final blooper and dedication which you should also stay for, because come on, you’ve already gotten to music credits. Honestly, after The Dilemma The Eagle Unknown Just Go With It, Never Say Never and all the January movies I didn’t see, it’s relief.

It’s understandable if you’ve been underwhelmed by the last few films from Peter and Bobby Farrelly. We all feel it. That’s why high hopes are pinned on Hall Pass. When watching the trailer, I got the sense that the film’s jokes were just too raunchy for general audiences. This new red band trailer shows that I was right.

But just because they’re raunchy, doesn’t mean they’re funny. Also strange that Owen Wilson only has about four lines in this trailer with most of the attention going to Jason Sudeikis‘s take on a role that typically goes to Dan Fogler. I’ll have to wait until we see the film before officially calling the time of death on the Farrelly’s comedy skills but I’m prepping our 40 oz‘s for sip-pouring all the same. (IGN)

BREAKING: Woody Allen has made another movie. Perhaps, more importantly, his latest film Midnight in Paris (alternate title: MidNite in paris 2k11) has been selected to open the Cannes Film Festival on May 11 of this year. In case you don’t know, the movie is a romantic comedy set in Paris, and was described by Cannes festival director Thierry Frémaux as “a wonderful love letter” to the city. Oh wow, way to turn a creative phrase, Thierry.

Anyway, the movie has a typically Woody Allen cast full of standouts, including Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion CotillardKathy Bates, Adrien Brody, and a cameo appearance the wife of the President of France, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy. I hope she speaks English and knows how to pronounce “Dostoevsky,” otherwise she’s doomed to fail in a Woody Allen movie. (via Deadline)

There are all kinds of weird fetishes out there, from furries who dress up in animal costumes to eproctophiliacs who get turned on by farts. (Note to Hollywood producers: why no eprcrocto rom-com starring Jennifer Aniston, who loves to smell Jack Black‘s farts?) If you prefer tailpipe to tail, these odd turntable videos to promote Cars 2 will be auto-erotic entertainment for you.

Meant to mimic the way cars spin in car shows, I think anthropomorphizing the cars makes this YouTube outing feel a little creepy. Especially because they’re turning slowly and there’s no music. No distractions. Just you and the car. Imagine getting inside Holley Shiftwell, clutching her, driving her insane as you press firmly on her… brakes?

And not coincidentally, I’m putting the breaks on this line of thinking.

Cars 2 zooms into theaters June 24th and features the voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Lovable Cable Guy and Michael Caine. (Collider)

‘Apes’ Will Muscle-In On Your Thanksgiving http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/apes-will-muscle-in-on-your-thanksgiving/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/apes-will-muscle-in-on-your-thanksgiving/#comments Sat, 15 Jan 2011 02:19:09 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17034 Fox Studios is switching up 'Apes' and 'Penguins.' Scheduling movies sounds like running a damn, dirty zoo.

Fox is switching up Apes and Penguins. No, that’s not a line from Madagascar 4: Mo’ Monkeys, Mo’ Problems. It’s Twentieth Century Fox switching around their 2011 schedule of movie releases.

The studio’s Planet of the Apes origin story, Rise of the Apes, is moving from June 24th to November 23rd. That makes sense, because Thanksgiving reminds us about how we took over this land from the Native Americans, so it makes karmic sense that we’d see a movie about apes taking over the world from us. Shame us with a big screen analogy, Fox!

Meanwhile, Fox must have a lot of faith in the Jim Carrey comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins. They’re moving it from August 12th (the Baltic Avenue of summer movie spots) to June 17th (pure Boardwalk, baby). Let’s hope Carry’s penguins don’t… slip up!

Do you get that joke? It’s a joke about penguins being slippery.

Other notable mentions from Fox’s new calendar:

- The Sitter, a new “R”-rated Jonah Hill comedy, gets bumped from July 15th to August 5th. (Ouch.)

- What’s Your Number?, a new “R”-rated Anna Faris comedy, got moved from April 29th to September 30th. (Meee-ouch!)

- The Big Year, starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson as bird-watchers, officially has my attention starting Oct. 15th. (Deadline)

That strange, omnipresent force that compels Woody Allen to make movies has struck again, and the result has been picked up by Sony Pictures Classics. This time, the movie is called Midnight in Paris, and it’s probably about a writer who’s traveling in Paris when he has an existential crisis or something. The cast, as always for a Woody Allen movie, is impressive: Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, and Adrian Brody are the biggest names in the cast, which also includes French comedians Gad Elmaleh and Manu Payet.

Sony Pictures Classics is also interested in the latest documentary from Super Size Me McAuteur Morgan Spurlock, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. It appears to be kind of a documentary-about-a-documentary depicting Spurlock’s attempts to get sponsors for his movie, etc. Expect a fun moral about the evils of advertising and corporate sponsorship. Spurlock himself recently told The Hollywood Reporter: “Everywhere you look it seems like something’s being brought to you by some sponsor or some corporation. So we said, ‘Why not make a doc that looks at that and have the brands actually pay for it?’” Brought to you by Toyota! (IndieWire)

Woody always shows up at the right time.

Apparently there was a rumor going around Twitter today that Owen Wilson had tragically pulled a Sonny Bono in Switzerland. I must not follow @gullible. The whole ordeal stemmed from a fabricated story on the site Global Associated News:

“The actor & novice snowboarder was vacationing at the Zermatt ski resort in Zermatt, Switzerland with family and friends. Witnesses indicate that Owen Wilson lost control of his snowboard and struck a tree at a high rate of speed. Owen Wilson was air lifted by ski patrol teams to a local hospital, however, it is believed that the actor died instantly from the impact of the crash. The actor was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident and drugs and alcohol do not appear to have played any part in his death.“

Very funny, pranksters, but the real joke here is the improper use of the ampersand in the first sentence. I guess if we can’t expect people to know the difference between a “&” and an “and” in current writing styles we can’t expect them to discern between reality and poppycock. Anyway, Owen Wilson is very much alive, as is Charlie Sheen AND Adam Sandler, who also had death rumors circulating this past holiday weekend. This could all change soon though, as Charlie Sheen is bound to get out of bed. (TheWrap)

Brooks lost most people after Spanglish so they probably won’t like How Do You Know either, but I appreciate a romantic comedy where people talk about what’s actually going on.

The post Review: How Do You Know appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

I still like James L. Brooks movies. He lost most people after Spanglish so they probably won’t like How Do You Know either, but I appreciate a romantic comedy where people talk about what’s actually going on. To me that’s smart.

Lisa (Reese Witherspoon) is a star baseball player cut from the USA team. She moves in with Matty (Owen Wilson), a womanizing MLB player. George (Paul Rudd) is a businessman getting in trouble with the government (they explained all the details and it’s as convoluted as real business, so it’s probably accurate). His father Charles (Jack Nicholson), who put George in charge, tries to manage the scandal in his “Jack” kind of way.

Doesn’t sound like a whole lot, because it’s just a movie about people relating to each other. Lisa and George just meet each other at bad moments in their lives and that makes the time spent interesting. There’s no constructed encounter where polar opposites have to work together.

Lisa is definitely a woman written by a man. She’s so in touch with her feelings, she articulates exactly where she is in a given moment to make good decisions. She even tells herself to be honest with herself while making mistakes so at least she gets a takeaway from the experience. Brooks forgot to take away reason and accountability this time.

George and Lisa ordering drinks reveals each characters’ perspective. She doesn’t need the crutch and her frustration totally stops his neurosis. Just don’t indulge it. George still does indulge and keeps announcing he has a thought throughout the movie. Thankfully, this is a movie where empty words don’t work. He’s got to get to a real place.

Other than George, it feels like people are talking to try to communicate, not just to announce how they’re feeling. After sex with Matty, Lisa is actually evaluating where she stands with him. She asks him to be more specific, because he’s just being generally positive. When she discovers his stash of new toothbrushes and womens’ sweat suits in all sizes (sweet move, by the way), she realizes Matty is a player. However, he makes a good point. If he’d put out one and hid the rest, would that make him a great guy? (Still no. He shouldn’t expect women of any size to stay over. That’s the wrong kind of thoughtful.)

The dialogue is still heightened where everyone is just a bit more clever and articulate than we actually are. Lisa tells Matty, “You have all the signs of a handful.” It’s a lot of sports metaphors, but those work. Lisa’s Coach Sally (Molly Price) advises her, “You fight low self-esteem, don’t give it the wheel.” Dramatic, but good advice.

It’s still ironic and sarcastic too. One of Matty’s teammates says, “I think I’m in love when I wear a condom with the other girls.” George toasts “to people who make toasts” and reveals, “I was a bartender when I was working my way through bartending.” During a fight, Matty says, “I’m not going to ask where you’ve been, but I get points for that, right?” Well, Matty, if you don’t get points with Lisa, you still get points with me.

Disney has dropped the trailer for Pixar’s Cars 2. Michael Caine joins the talking automobile cast as a British intelligent agent who gets into it with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) as they take part in the first world Grand Prix. First of all, the British government would never spend millions to train an Aston Martin to spy for them, and second, I have it on good authority that anything voiced by Larry the Cable Guy is banned from Asia. Aside from all that, Pixar has never screwed anything up. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first Cars, which I believe is the national consensus, but it made enough to warrant a sequel, so here’s hoping Caine can bring some class to the franchise by shooting rockets out of his nostrils.

Warner Bros. has dropped the trailer for Hall Pass. Directed by The Farrell Brothers, it follows two guys (Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis) whose wives give them one week off marriage to do whatever they want. Simple enough concept, so it’s clearly all in the execution, and I think we might have winner here. The awesome supporting cast is as follows: Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate, J.B. Smoove, Stephen Merchant, Richard Jenkins, Alyssa Milano, and Vanessa Angel. If the Farrelly’s can’t make this movie work, God help them.

Hall Pass checks into theaters February 25, 2011.

It appears he's had his fill of brie-stuffed croissants and scantily clad models, and is back in The States collaborating with Ben Stiller. At least, that's what Stiller said via his Twitter account. The question is, can you really trust the lead actor and executive producer on the film? And the answer to that question is yes. So for now, Zoolander 2 is moving along swimmingly with Jonah Hill still being eyed for the villain. No word yet if Owen Wilson will reprise his roll as Hansel, but Stiller has gone on record saying that the sequel couldn't be made without him. I assume that is due to Wilson being such an integral part of the Zoolander world, not because he has a penchant for spitefully burning down film sets. (/Film)

Early test screening reaction.

Universal Pictures has dropped a new international trailer for Little Fockers. The boner stabbings from the U.S. trailer have been replaced with references to The Godfather and Jaws, and of course, vomiting. So this movie has Viagra jokes, puke jokes, overused film references jokes, bleeding all over people jokes, and Jessica Alba. One out of five ain’t bad. Still no sign of Dustin Hoffman shoe-horned in to up the zany antics. Maybe after viewing this trailer he’ll agree to a pity cameo.

It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get “in” with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack’s suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam’s entire clan—including Pam’s lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)—descends for the twins’ birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he’s fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack’s final test and become the family’s next patriarch…or will the circle of trust be broken for good?

Finally, the douchebags on MTV’s Next will have some fresh quotes from a popular movie that they try to pass off as their own. It’s been announced that Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 scribe Justin Theroux will write and direct a follow-up to Zoolander. In fact, Theroux is heading to Fashion Week in Paris to "immerse himself on what is current in fashion." He’s absolutely NOT going for the wild parties, hot women, and mini-croissants stuffed with brie. Just in case you heard that was the real reason.

Jonah Hill is in talks to play the villian and Owen Wilson will hopefully reprise his role as Hansel, though he has yet to commit. But Luke Wilson wanted me to mention that he’s available, and will work for mini-croissants stuffed with anything. (Deadline Hollywood)
