Amy Schumer sparked controversy with her Ryan Dunn joke on last night’s airing of  The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. She addressed Dunn’s fellow stuntman and friend Steve O saying, “When Ryan Dunn died Steve-O probably was thinking it could’ve been him, with the rest of the world wondering why it wasn’t.”

Really? That started controversy? It wasn’t directed at Dunn and it wasn’t particularly that harsh. In fact, I made a similiar joke when I wrote Dunn’s obituary. Also, it’s a roast. That’s the point. It’s supposed to be gloves-off pot shots. If we were interested in watching famous people fart out watered-down yuck-yucks, we’d have watched Two and a Half Men instead.

Point being, the joke wasn’t over the line. It was more observational than it was malicious as it was the common reaction to the news of Dunn’s passing. Here are nine jokes that were much more harsh from The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen.

  • “You’re just like Bruce Willis — you were big in the 80s and now your old slot is being filled by Ashton Kutcher.” — Amy Schumer
  • “The only reason you got on TV in the first place is because God hates Michael J. Fox.” — Anthony Jeselnik
  • “Brooke Mueller is not very bright unless Charlie throws a lamp at her. … Mike Tyson, your opponents spent more time bleeding in the corner than Charlie’s ex wives.” — Jeffrey Ross
  • “Charlie, you claim to have ‘tiger blood,’ but after all the porn stars you’ve [had sex with], it’s probably Tiger Woods’ blood.” — Seth MacFarlane
  • “If you’re winning, this must not be a child custody hearing. The only time your kids get to see you is in reruns — don’t you want to live to see their first 12 steps?” — Jeffrey Ross
  • “Charlie still hasn’t hit rock bottom. He’s looking forward to it though, because he thinks there’s a rock there.” — Steve O
  • “Charlie Sheen is still alive! Charlie, you were amazing in Platoon. Your marriage to Denise [Richards] was kind of like her Vietnam because she was constantly afraid of being killed by Charlie … There’s no denying how famous you are. It was international news when you ruined the lives of those two girls living with you—you know, your daughters.” – Amy Schumer
  • “Mike Tyson, your opponents spent less time bleeding in the corner than Charlie’s ex-wives.” — Jeffrey Ross
  • “Charlie Sheen called his boss on Two and a Half Men a ‘Jew ki**’ and expected to go back to work. That’s crazy. If you could do that and keep your job, then everybody would do it.” — Anthony Jeselnik

‘Jackass’ Director Reveals Details On Ryan Dunn Tribute http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-director-reveals-details-on-ryan-dunn-tribute/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-director-reveals-details-on-ryan-dunn-tribute/#comments Sun, 31 Jul 2011 17:02:30 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=222785 Van surfing might finally see the light of day.

Jackass director Jeff Tremain hung out at the MTV cocktail party, even though the network did not present any new Jackass material at their Television Critics Association panels. Over a couple of Mai Tais, Tremaine told me that the tragedy of Ryan Dunn’s death will inspire a new collection of Jackass hilarity.

“We’re gearing up to do a tribute to Ryan,” Tremaine said. “That’s our next project. It hurt pretty bad. It’s hurt everybody but we want to celebrate his life and show everybody. We have just such an amazing bank of footage of him. We’re going to dig it all up so we’ll discover it too.”

The 'Jackass' Crew Pay Tribute To Ryan Dunn

The special will include never before scene outtakes from the Jackass movies and TV-show. Tremaine remembers one that would be the ultimate find.

“There’s always been the Van Surfing, him and Chris re-enacting a scene from Teen Wolf that didn’t go well. We’ll see if they’ll let us air it but it’s pretty funny. Ryan was riding on the roof of the van and the van was speeding towards a body of water, stopped a little bit short. He made it to the water but the water was only like five inches deep, slammed pretty bad.”

MTV’s new Teen Wolf series didn’t even do the van surfing. Actually, the Jackass team self-censored that one, and Tremaine is still on the fence. “We decided not to air that because we thought that kids might imitate it too easily.”

The Jackass crew will shoot new interviews for the special, which Tremaine hopes will air in the fall.

The Jackass crew put together this video as a tribute to their fallen comrade Ryan Dunn and screened it at his memorial service this past Wednesday. The second part of the montage is cut to “The Light Outlives the Star” by Roger Alan Wade. The touching song was written specifically for Dunn. “Ryan was really crazy about my cousin Roger,” said Johnny Knoxville, “He loved his music and really looked up to him. Rog’ was equally as crazy about Ryan and, like everyone else, was shook by his passing.”

The video does a nice job of showing the group’s camaraderie and how Dunn could be relied upon for his sense of humor and ability to keep the mood fun and light. It also points out that these guys don’t have many home movies that don’t involve punching one another in the groin, back, or head. Rest in peace, Dunn. (Dickhouse)

Roger Ebert’s 5 Most Controversial Statements http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/roger-eberts-5-most-controversial-statements/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/roger-eberts-5-most-controversial-statements/#comments Tue, 21 Jun 2011 21:40:33 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=217142 Thanks to the advent of Twitter, it's become even easier for him to stir up trouble.

Film critic Roger Ebert is taking a lot of flack for his controversial tweet in regard to the death of Ryan Dunn. Apparently, pointing out that drinking alcohol and driving over 100 MPH is a bad idea rubbed some people the wrong way. Granted, it was a dick move to post so soon after Dunn’s death. Dunn’s friend and Jackass costar Bam Margera said as much, replying “Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat fucking mouth!” Even Ebert himself has apologized for the timing of the tweet. But aside from that, he is sticking to his guns on Dunn, maintaining that “he drank, he drove, 2 people died.”

Regardless of your feelings on the comment, you have to admire Ebert’s willingness to speak his mind. And it’s even more impressive, considering the man literally cannot speak. But due to his opinionated nature, Ebert has often found himself at the center of controversy (No, I’m not talking about the fact that he gave Phantom Menace four stars). And thanks to the advent of Twitter, it’s become even easier for him to stir up trouble. With that in mind, here are five of Roger Ebert‘s most controversial comments.

“Video games can never be art…”

You could almost hear the rage building in the hearts of gamers as they read the headline to Ebert’s infamous blog post, “Video games can never be art.” The post consisted of Ebert bashing a medium of which he knew nothing, and had no desire to learn about. The response was swift, and surprisingly cordial. According to Ebert, only a handful of the nearly 5000 comments were rude. Most were well thought out, constructive criticisms. Ebert went on to admit the stupidity of commenting on the subject given his complete lack of knowledge, although he still believes he is right. At least when he acts like a fool, he admits it.

Rush Limbaugh should be horsewhipped…

In the wake of the 2010 Haitian earthquake, President Obama urged Americans to make a donation to the Red Cross relief fund. So that people could easily find a link to the Red Cross site, it was posted at the official White House website, whitehouse.gov. Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh called into question the need to visit the White House website in order to get to the the Red Cross, insinuating that money could be misappropriated, and those who donated could end up on the DNC’s mailing list. Ebert was outraged by the accusations, and commented in an open letter that Limbaugh “should be horse-whipped for the insult (he has) paid to the highest office of our nation.”

No American-flag shirts…

In May of 2010, Roger Ebert weighed in on yet another controversy that had nothing to do with film. At Live Oa High School in Morgan Hill, CA, five students were sent home for wearing American Flag tee-shirts and bandannas on May 5th (a.k.a. Cinco de Mayo) out of fear it would offend students who were celebrating their Mexican heritage. The move set off a firestorm of complaints in support of the kids who were sent home. Ebert disagreed with the support, tweeting that…

@ebertchicago Kids who wear American Flag T-shirts on 5 May should have to share a lunchroom table with those who wear a hammer and sickle on 4 July.

His tweet set off a firestorm of its own. Reasonable objections to his position were drowned out by a swell of hateful replies mocking Ebert’s cancer and subsequent facial deformities. Ebert replied to those mocking his misfortune…

@ebertchicago Dear TeePee tweeters making fun of my cancer: You want ugly? For that you have to look at a mind, not a face.

“TeaBaggers”…

In case you haven’t already figured it out by reading the previous entries, Roger Ebert is a bit of a lefty. As such, he’s not big fan of the Tea Party movement. In one particular tweet, he referred to its members as “Teabaggers” and “nutjobs.” When confronted about using a pornographic term to describe his political opponents, Ebert claimed he had forgotten “teabagger” had a pornographic connotation. Critics pointed out that he had used the term in his reviews as recently as 1998. In all fairness, it’s possible Ebert forgot what the term meant, considering he spent the past decad fighting cancer and having his entire jaw removed.

The Huckleberry Finn controversy…

Earlier this year, Ebert decided to chime in on the decision of NewSouth Books to publish a version of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with the word “nigger” completely removed and replaced with the world “slave.” As an ardent opponent of censorship, Ebert was none to pleased with the decision, and took to Twitter to complain, claiming he’d “rather be called a nigger than a slave.” Despite the context, it didn’t take long for the outrage to grow. Eventually, Ebert backtracked, tweeting “I’ll never be called a nigger *or* a slave, so I should have shut the **** up.” That’s a fair point. My only question is if you’re going to start dropping N-Bombs, why would you bother to censor an F-bomb?

R.I.P.

Aw dammit!

The Jackass crew have suffered their first casualty and miraculously it wasn’t Steve-O. Ryan Dunn and at unknown passenger died early this morning in Pennsylvania after his Porsche crashed following a night of drinking.

The likable prankster Dunn is best known for shoving a matchbox car up his rectum before receiving an X-ray in the first Jackass movie and for his appearances on several MTV shows including “Viva La Bam.” Hours before the accident, Dunn posted a picture of he and friends tying one on at the bar. It’s believed that he was drunk at the time of the accident and was absolutely not goaded by Johnny Knoxville to wear a blindfold while driving.

If this is true, it sucks to see someone lose their life in a way that could have been so easily prevented. And it really sucks to see them take somebody else with them. (TMZ)

‘Jackass’ Guys Talk Favorite Stunts http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-guys-talk-favorite-stunts/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackass-guys-talk-favorite-stunts/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The Jackass 3D gang recently sat down with Break to discuss their favorite stunts, both past and present. Toy cars up orifices and beards made from Steve-O's pubes seem to be up there on the list. The most interesting piece of information I gleaned is Steve-O feels it's necessary to save his pubes in his medicine cabinet instead of throwing them away. I guess it would be a sacrilege to not glue them to someone's face.  Check out the video below.
