Review: Movie 43

Movie_43_PosterStar power is no match for tasteless, offensive and unfunny comedy.

The “Movie 43” wraparound features Dennis Quaid as a lunatic with an abysmal script who forces Greg Kinnear’s movie producer to buy the piece at gunpoint. Coincidence? Probably not, as almost each and every sketch of this comedy anthology is so silly, nauseating and degrading it seems like the only plausible way the producers could manage to recruit so much top-notch talent.

Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet make it through better than most. Jackman will likely never live down having a pair of testicles dangle from his neck for the sake of this movie, but between the giggle-worthy visual and the duo’s charm, “The Catch” is easily “Movie 43’s” finest few minutes. Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber’s “Homeschooled” is another portion that at least respects its leads, but breaks down entirely when the scenario drivels on and right into a strange and unsatisfying conclusion.

Interview: Writer-Directors Jon Hurwitz And Hayden Schlossberg Talk American Reunion

Not only do Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have the pleasure of seeing Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle turn into a very successful three-film franchise, but now they get to have a hand in a different series of films, something that had a great impact on them when they were first kicking off their career, American Pie.

After a nine-year hiatus, the whole gang is back to celebrate their high school reunion and Hurwitz and Schlossberg are behind the wheel dictating the action. Similarly to what they just did with A Very Harold & Kumar 3D ChristmasAmerican Reunion finds its roots in the idea of seeing where these high school stereotypes wind up when they’re in their 30s.

While celebrating the release of Harold & Kumar round three, Hurwitz and Schlossberg took the time to talk a bit about American Reunion, how they got the gig, how they worked on that and Harold & Kumar simultaneously and more. Check it all out for yourself below.

Johnny Knoxville Talks Jackass 3-D And Untitled Comedy

With Birth of Big Air making its big debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, the boys of everything and anything insanely dangerous, Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine, came out to support their latest project. The film is part of ESPN’s “30 for 30” series, 30 documentaries celebrating 30 different trends, people or occurrences in the world of sports. This film, directed by Tremaine and produced by Knoxville, focuses on the man responsible for inspiring the mega ramp event at the X Games, Mat Hoffman.

After chatting with me today about Birth of Big Air, Tremaine, Knoxville and Hoffman took some time to provide a brief glimpse of Jackass 3-D. Naturally, Tremaine and Knoxville assured us that round three will be just as traumatizing, if not more, than the first two. They’re in the midst of shooting the film right now, thankfully in 3D rather than relying on a post-production conversion, and in the words of Tremaine, there will be “poo-poo, pee-pee, throw up” galore. And why is Hoffman in on this conversation beyond the fact that he happens to be promoting Birth of Big Air? Because he’s making a cameo in Jackass 3-D! It’s a quick part of the interview that’s easy to miss, but Tremaine provides a nod of confirmation around the 35 second mark.

Knoxville also shared a little about the untitled omnibus comedy that’s been getting loads of attention. The cast boasts names like Elizabeth Banks, Gerard Butler, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloe Moretz and many more. The film will be comprised of 17 different shorts created by various directors including Griffin Dunne and Bob Odenkirk. Knoxville confirms he’s wrapped his segment, which was shot by Brett Ratner and features himself and Seann William Scott.

Red Carpet Coverage: Cop Out

Monday night I had the pleasure of covering the red carpet for Cop Out on behalf of MTV. Check out all of my video work included in these articles:

1. Cop Out Cast Say Working With Bruce Willis Is ‘Awesome’

As if anyone needs confirmation that working with Hollywood legend Bruce Willis is awesome, his Cop Out co-stars are spreading the word. And having the chance to work with him on the Kevin Smith-directed flick, which opens this weekend, was a dream come true.

2. Tracy Morgan ‘Would Love’ To Remake Jaws, Doesn’t Want To Jinx Knoxville Comedy

Producers of the upcoming vicious fishies flick, Piranha 3-D, are positioning their film to become Jaws for the 21st Century. If an unsourced rumor floated on the Internet earlier this month is to be believed, the studio behind 1975’s Jaws is determined to have their shark-infested-waters classic remade to become the Jaws for the 21st Century, possibly with Tracy Morgan in the lead role.

3. Cheer Up, Bruce Willis!

We are a little worried about Cop Out star Bruce Willis. In the last few days we’ve noticed that he seems to be a little down about something. MTV News has had the opportunity to meet up with Willis several times recently, as he’s been promoting his new Kevin Smith-directed buddy comedy, Cop Out. And with each interview it becomes clearer that Bruce seems to be going through some existential crisis.

Review: Planet 51

I don’t care how mature you are–everyone loves a good cartoon once in a while. Sometimes you just need to leave the adult world behind and relax with some youthful hilarity. The problem with Planet 51 is it’s not youthful, it’s infantile. Planet 51 is so inane that not only is adult enjoyment unattainable, even younger audiences will be on to its lack of intelligence and novelty.
