Chris Rock Remaking France’s ‘First Star’

Posted: January 13, 2010 at 2:25 pm   /   Local, Movie News

Chris Rock has caught a little flack for remaking 2007’s Death at a Funeral, since the original is only a couple years old, and was critically very well received.  No one could really understand why anyone would want to remake a film so new already in English. At least this remake that he is planning […]

‘Grown Ups’ Teaser Trailer starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James, and Rob Schneider

Posted: November 17, 2009 at 2:31 pm   /   Local, Movie News

This feels like an early 90s reunion of SNL, with the exception of Kevin James. It is hard to believe that Rock and Sandler once worked together on the popular sketch show, and even harder to believe they were let go. Now, both Rock and Sandler are two of the biggest names in comedy. Spade […]

Adam Sandler to play ugly woman.

Posted: October 28, 2009 at 11:53 am   /   Local, Movie News

Ok, what Sandler really is doing is playing two roles in his next film, Jack and Jill. He will play both title characters. I can’t imagine Sandler being a good looking woman. Apparently $49 million dollars will be going into the budget to correct this problem. Just kidding of course, I’m sure it will be […]

Marlon Wayans to star as Richard Pryor in Biopic?

Posted: October 8, 2009 at 11:13 am   /   Local, Movie News

That is the word on the street I guess. Originally Eddie Murphy was attached, but I think Wayans might actually be the better choice. Murphy as one of the highest grossing film actors of all time would be hard to disassociate from Richard Pryor in a film like this. I’m still not sure I like […]

Funny People

Posted: July 30, 2009 at 11:30 pm   /   Local, Movie Reviews

Judd Apatow’s latest is his lesser effort to date, but is still quite funny at times it just drags on a bit to long and doesn’t hit the emotional highs I think it was going for. George Simmons is a comedy superstar. He lives the life of celebrity, alone, in a large mansion paid for […]
