In new comedy Good Boys, three sixth grade boys (11 / 12 year olds) ditch school and embark on an adventure that involves carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to get home in time for their first kissing party.
Directed and co-written by Gene Stupnitsky, Good Boys is co-produced by Seth Rogen and stars Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon…
As a fan of Rogen and Superbad (2007), I simply have to watch this one. I’m just hoping that this long three minute trailer didn’t show too many of the jokes.
Midori Francis, Enid-Raye Adams, Chance Hurstfield, Millie Davis, Benita Ha, Lina Renna and Vicky Lambert also star.
Long Shot is the latest comedy starring Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron and Alexander Skarsgård.
Directed by Jonathan Levine, Rogen is Fred Flarsky, an unemployed journalist who decides to pursue his childhood crush. The only thing is, his childhood crush is Charlotte Field, one of the most powerful and unattainable women on the planet.
Rogen and Theron together seems surprising somehow, yet I definitely do love them both separately so I hope this really works.
Andy Serkis, Randall Park, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aviva Mongillo, James Saito and Ravi Patel also star.
Starring James Franco, Seth Rogen, Dave Franco, Alison Brie and Zac Efron – to name just a few, The Disaster Artist is a drama / comedy that tells the real life story of writer/director Tommy Wiseau. Wiseau is the man behind what is often referred to as ‘The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies,’ The Room (2003).
Directed by James Franco, The Disaster Artist chronicles the troubled development and eventual cult success of Wiseau’s film…
I’m hoping that this will be great considering how odd and entertaining this trailer is. I’ll tune in also because the James Franco / Seth Rogen partnership has never, ever let me down.
All I need to decide now is whether it’s worth trying to watch The Room before seeing this movie, or not.
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 moviefor the smartly written filthy, fun dialogue and the general madness of it all.
I remember watching Neighbors (2014) and not liking it enough to write anything meaningful. I wasn’t in love with the Neighbors 2 – Sorority Rising trailer either at first, but it grew on me after a week.
Fast forward to now having seen the sequel, the film suffers from the dreaded sequel disease of repetition. Though certainly not to the levels that My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2did this year, suffer it certainly does. As per the original movie, this one too was directed by Nicholas Stoller.
None of the performances by the stars including Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Dave Franco or Chloë Grace Moretz were bad. I just wasn’t much amused. In fact I’m quite certain that most of my laughing happened during theNeighbors 2 trailer.
Try as I must, I managed to find something I enjoyed about the movie and that is the message(s) at the end – however forced they may have felt.
I’m starting to wonder why it is that I seem to find myself enjoying Rogen’s Newer work less and less. I wasn’t even able to make it through the first third of The Night Before (2015) before needing to bail because I didn’t buy into any of the character’s actions. Am I simply getting too old and therefore no longer the target market? Have I watched so many of his movies / movies in general that very little is new to me any more? Has my taste simply changed…?
All I know at this point is that whatever the answer, thank goodness for the early work.
Neighbors 2 is the sequel to Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron’s Neighbors (2014). The latter being a movie about new parents who are forced to live next door to a loud, partying at all hours type of fraternity. In the second instalment, again directed by Nicholas Stoller, the young couple’s new problem is the Sorority next door…
I must admit that the first film isn’t one of my favourites of Rogen’s comedies, even though his character’s reaction to the baby/ condom scene is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in a film/ trailer. It’s up there, not to far from the pooping in street scene in Bridesmaids (2011).
I’ve decided that, like a young so and so who must not let their past failed relationships stop them from getting involved in something that could be amazing, I’m going dive into Neighbours 2 – Sorority Rising (2016) – with reasonably more than average expectations. Call me foolish…
