Two Comedians Eat, Drink, And Bust Balls In 'The Trip'

It's kinda like going on a 70-minute road trip with two hilarious British friends. It's exactly like that, actually. The Trip is essentially a movie about two comedians hanging out. Shot as a BBC miniseries, a camera crew followed around Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, as they adopted amplified versions of their personas for the cameras. (Think "Curb Your Enthusiasm," but good-natured.) The miniseries has been boiled down to a 70-minute documentary/feature that follows the duo around as they tour England, eating, drinking, and doing nothing in particular. No word on when, if ever, the full series will come stateside. In meantime enjoy some killer impressions over dinner. The Trip hits theaters June 10. "She was only 16 years old." (Watch it. You'll see.)

Steve Coogan And Rob Brydon Give Us More Michael Caine Impressions

It's for the sequel to 'The Trip'. It's for The Trip To Italy, the sequel of sorts to The Trip, which saw the two comedians, in a pseudo-documentary format, travel around, eat, and not do much else. It was originally a mini-series, then was edited to become a feature film. They're back at it in Italy, where the food is better, and the Michael Caine impressions are less delighting, but still very, very funny. "YOU WERE JUST SUPPOSED TO BLOW THE BLOODY DOORS OFF!"


They're Making A Sequel To 'The Trip', Which Is Reason Enough To Repost The Michael Caine Conversation

It refuses to get old. Like a BBC-commissioned Dorian Gray. The psuedo-documentary/road trip comedy The Trip seemed low-budget and pleasant enough that stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon wouldn't need much to be convinced to get back in the saddle. The film will once again start as a six-part series on BBC, then get that footage condensed to the good stuff. Etc, etc, etc. HERE'S THE MICHAEL CAINE CLIP.


Watch Miley Cyrus Trip Balls

Normally we don't cover gossipy stuff, but I couldn't resist posting Miley Cyrus doing bong rips and getting eeeeeeeeeff'd up. Normally we don't cover gossipy stuff, but I couldn't resist posting Miley Cyrus doing bong rips and getting eeeeeeeeeff'd up. According the TMZ, the video was shot in Miley's L.A. home five days after her 18th birthday. They also claim that the smoke filling the bong is not marijuana but the natural herb salvia which is legal in California. Whatever she's inhaling, it's doing it's job. Even better, Bush is playing in the background. Poor choice. Gavin Rossdale is such a mellow harsher.


Get Charmed To Death By Chris Pratt In Seven Minutes Of 'SNL' Promos

Macklin, you son of a bitch. In case you didn't know that Chris Pratt is an awesome, funny, and delightful person...HE IS. And rather than go through the many, many examples supporting this thesis, you can just watch this extended video of all the SNL promos Chris Pratt did for his upcoming hosting of the show's 40th season premiere. He's just about the most natural person in front of the camera. The comedy that most actors strive for, as well as their work to portray a level of comfort while being filmed. Ole' Pratty's got that in spades. I mean, who else can make seven minutes of video and have all of it be charming. It's a gift. A gift from him to us. WE LOVE YOU, STARLORD!


First Two Minutes Of 'Rio' Makes Me Reconsider The Ethics Of Bird Hunting

Here's a preview of the animated movie 'Rio.' The upcoming 'Rio' version of Angry Birds for iPhone sounds more promising, because maybe I'll get to destroy these fowl pheasants. Fox just released the first two minutes of their upcoming animated film Rio. The overly cheerful singing, the obnoxiously bright colors, the cute wittle baby bird who's just wearning how to fwy... Now I wish I was a bird, so I'd have the claws to claw my god damn eyes out. If you're really into The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland, and not in a let's-get-high-and-laugh-at-how-retarded-this-is way, then this 3D movie is clearly for you. Rio is directed by Carlos Saldanha, who did all the Ice Age movies and Robots. So after this clip, that's really bad sign #2. However, a few promising elements are soaring above the mess of bird shit. The cast includes Jesse Eisenberg, Neil Patrick Harris and Anne Hathaway. Also, the plot doesn't sound too terrible: “A nerdy macaw who leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio de Janeiro. He embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, learning to open himself up to all that life has to offer along the way.” Actually, the coolest sounding news surrounding Rio is that Rovio is making a Rio-themed sequel to their Angry Birds iPhone game. I'm an Angry Birds addict, so the thought of using these cloying birds as living weapons to destroy pigs in towers has me excited. Sexually excited? Let's not go there, but yes. Wait, I just read a little further and apparently you use the original Angry Birds to rescue the characters from Rio. So... now I'm thinking it's time to take my 28 gauge out of the tool shack, cause I'm declaring this bird season. (/Film and TheWrap)


Set Aside Four Minutes To Watch This 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' Clip

Looks like it took on some elements of 'Bourne'. One of the most anticipated films of the year is inching its way to theaters, and we've got an early four-minute look at what we're in for with Captain America: Winter Soldier. It's nothing unexpected or surprising, but it looks pretty fun nonetheless, and it seems to be even more stylized than the original. So take a gander, and see if the slightly new direction this franchise has taken makes it more or less appealing to you. If you're a fan of the Marvel universe, though, you've probably already made up your mind.
