In new comedy Father Figures, Owen Wilson and Ed Helms play fraternal twin brothers who just found out that their father is in fact very much alive, contrary to what their mother (Glenn Close) had told them their whole life. Directed by Lawrence Sher, the brothers set off on a road trip to find their dad…

I think there’s some hope that this will be a movie I can watch and enjoy. I certainly hope so; since the concept isn’t particularly ridiculous.

J.K. Simmons, Kat Williams, Christopher Walken and Ving Rhames also star.

Father Figures Release date: December 22nd, 2017 (US); February 16th, 2018 (UK)…

WONDER (2017): New Trailer From Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay…

In Wonder, the latest movie from Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay and Owen wilson, August (Auggie) Pullman is a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade at a mainstream elementary school for the first time…

Jacob Tremblay is such a great young talent. He along with Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson are great reasons to watch this movie. It also helps that the film is based on R.J. Palacio’s bestselling book of the same name. I don’t recall the last time I watched Wilson in a non-comedy role so this should be interesting.

Wonder Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US); December 4th, 2017 (UK); January 8th, 2018 (GER)…

Daveed Briggs, Millie Davis, Sonia Braga and Emma Tremblay also star whilst Stephen Chbosky directs.

ZOOLANDER 2 (2016): The Things I Loved…

Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrell, I’ll start by confirming that without question, the original Zoolander (2001) movie is better. The story in the first movie seemed so much simpler in comparison and I found that I loved every single cameo, including Paris Hilton, Billy Zane and especially David Bowie.

The cameos in Zoolander 2, particularly the ones from the world of fashion are disappointing on account of dodgy acting skills all round. Valentino, Tommy Hilfiger, Anna Winter and Marc Jacobs – along with Justin Bieber all did the best they could of course but I was still left wanting.

Overall, nothing was half as annoying as Kyle Mooney’s Don Atari. The character’s extreme and irritating hipster ways made it hard to see why he had to be there at all.

I enjoyed the use of a soundtrack that definitely seemed more at home in a superhero movie. Will Ferrell’s Jacobim Mugato, my very favourite character from the original film is the one I couldn’t wait to see again, and what a joyful reunion it turned out to be. I remember laughing particularly loudly at his line about the number of square meals fed to Derek Jr., a character played very well by young Cyrus Arnold.

I’m a big fan of the original Zoolander movie and this sequel, though not an improvement on the original, I found it worth it for the handful of jokes that do land and for the opportunity to reminisce about how happy I was to have come across the original film in the first place.

Watch it, especially if you loved the original and you’re as curious as I am. Should you watch just one of these movies, please let it be Zoolander (2001).

Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer and Laura Dern are the stars of Wilson, a Craig Johnson directed comedy about a middle aged misanthrope who gets the surprise of his life after reuniting with is estranged wife…

Based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, I want to see this because I rather enjoy Harrelson in comedy roles. His part in 2011’s Friends With Benefits is one of my favourites.

Cheryl Hines and Margo Martindale also star.

Wilson Release Dates: March 24th, 2017 (US)…

ZOOLANDER 2 (2016): A Teaser Trailer For Ben Stiller’s Return As Derek Zoolander

Written by Justin Theroux and directed by Ben Stiller, the teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 has arrived and a tease it absolutely is!

The sequel also stars Owen Wilson, Olivia Munn, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, billy Zane, Fred Armisen, and Christine Taylor.

I can’t wait to see Will Ferrell as Mugatu. His performance in the original Zoolander (2001) film is one of my favourite Ferrell portrayals. Time to re-watch it, also to remind myself of Derek Zoolander’s impressive patented poses; Blue Steel, Ferrari, La Tigre and of course, Magnum.

Happy Zoolander 2 🙂

Funny and bearded Actor Zach Galifianakis, best known for his excellent turn in the Hangover (2009) movies as the somewhat unhinged Alan, is back.

This time Galifianakis comes with Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson and Kate Mckinnon in Mastermind – a very promising new comedy due this summer.

I’m most excited about Galifiniakis, of course; but also the character played by Sudeikis.

My fingers are crossed that this movie is filled with more great lines and scenes not yet shown in the trailer.

Mastaminds a.k.a. The Bank Heist (2016) Release Dates: September 30th, 2016 (US)…

THE INTERNSHIP 2013: Better Than You Might Expect

Starring Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and several other  known comic actors, I found The Internship to be good light-hearted fun – which also happens to highlight the importance of effective team work and being good with people.

The Internship is a movie that’ll speak to anyone who has ever had to start over as well as any underdog.

If all that still hasn’t convinced you, how about the fact that the setting is Google’s US Headquarters? Also the character played by Josh Gad was a pleasant surprise. However unsettling his facial hair.

Happy The Internship 🙂
