In Captain Underpants – The First Epic Movie, Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch are the voices of two mischievous elementary school kids. Directed by David Soren and based on the popular books by Dave Pilkey, the two very naughty fourth graders hypnotise their principal into becoming their comic book creation, Captain Underpants…

I’m intrigued enough to see it. The only question is how distracting it will be that Kevin Hart is voicing a fourth grader and he sounds exactly as his real life adult self.

Nick Kroll, Jordan Peele and Kristen Schaal also star.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Release Dates: June 2nd, 2017 (US); July 21st, 2017 (UK)…

SAUSAGE PARTY (2016) Movie Review: Filthy Goodness…

Finding out the truth about one’s existence isn’t just a journey important for humans. Frank the sausage from Shopwell’s supermarket has heard some extremely disturbing news about what happens after he and his fellow food product friends are chosen and taken out of Shopwell’s and into ‘the great beyond.’ So begins the mad food horror / comedy / adventure that is Sausage Party, the latest from writing partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Starring Rogen, Michael Cera, Kristen Wiig, Nick Kroll, Jonah Hill, and many more, I found Sausage Party entertaining and definitely filthy. It’s the clever and well written wordplay that makes the comedy. The film’s general look and animation style is another personal highlight. I particularly love the walks of Teresa Del Taco and Frank’s girlfriend Brenda. Yes, we’re  talking about animation here but the sexiness is really, undeniable. Then there’s the  villainous Douche who is nicely played by Nick Kroll (probably my favourite of his roles, ever).

There’s no writing about Sausage Party without mentioning the, let’s say… ‘good times’ that happen towards the very end. WOW! That’s a great word for it.

After thinking a few times, ‘How on earth are they going to end this?’as the movie played, I’m not mad at what actually happens at the very end – because how else could they have wrapped it up, really? Especially since food is ultimately for eating,  potatoes need peeling and no one should ever take ill treatment.

In terms of the things I was at odds with, Sausage Party features some commentary on religion that feels a little odd and out of place. However, at the same time it makes some sense for a world where food both talks and thinks. Nevertheless, it still didn’t quite fit somehow.

 Watch this movie for the smartly written filthy, fun dialogue and the general madness of it all.

MY BLIND BROTHER (2016): The Thing I Liked…?

My Blind Brother is a movie about the relationship between two brothers (one of whom is blind) and how their lives are further complicated when a girl comes into the picture.

Starring Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate, Adam Scott and Zoe Kazan, I found My Blind Brother generally quite dull. It felt like a lesser version of a good movie about the relationship between two brothers (one of whom is blind) and how their lives are further complicated when a girl comes into the picture.

As you can imagine, sibling rivalry comes into play in this story but the general element of dull just reminded me that I’m unfortunately completely over watching Nick Kroll play ‘loser’ characters. Adult Beginners (2014) was quite enough in that regard, thank you. Looking on the bright side as one must, I did find Adam Scott mildly entertaining as the entitled blind brother. But that’s it.

MY BLIND BROTHER (2016): New Trailer From Adam Scott, Jenny Slate, Nick Kroll, Zoe Kazan…

The theme of new comedy My Blind Brother is sibling rivalry between two brothers. There’s rivalry in their sporting activities and romantic lives. Directed by Sophie Goodhart; Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate, Adam Scott and Zoe Kazan are the stars…

There’s a reasonable chance that this movie will be at least moderately fun. I’ll give it a chance because of Zoe Kazan. She’s not even the main character so, good luck to me.

My Blind Brother Release Dates: September 19th, 2016 (US)…
