Movie 43 Header- Leslie Libb, Justin Long, Jason Sudeikis

It’s hard to describe a movie like Movie 43, because there is no actual place to start. The comedy is a collection of shorts and skits directed by – take a deep breath now – Patrick Forsberg, Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Tusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk, and Brett Ratner. If you thought the directors list was big, just wait until you see the cast list.

This hilarious red band trailer features comedic acts that can only be described as vulgar, disgusting, provocative, offensive, and other repulsive adjectives you can think of. But it’s all for the sake of comedy, and this red band trailer reveals that Movie 43 has the potential to be a daring comedy. Check out the trailer and the actors involved below.

The film stars so many people, that it’s impossible to fit them in this opening text. Take a deeper breath than the one you took before, as this is the cast of Movie 43

Surprise! Ricky Gervais Set To Host Golden Globes Yet Again

Ricky Gervais Golden Globes

Either comedian Ricky Gervais has some incredible mind control superpowers, or the Hollywood Foreign Press has a very, very short memory.

It’s being reported that Gervais will be returning to host the Golden Globes on January 15, marking his third time on the job in a row.

The amusing thing about all of this is that Gervais has gone out onto the stage the past two years, drink in hand, and thrown down viciously hilarious performances, laying waste to any and everyone in sight. Nothing sacred, no celebrity safe. Yes, he’s faced a whole lot of backlash for his reckless approach, but he’s also won over a sea of fans who appreciate someone in Hollywood calling it how it is…laughing till it hurts along the way.

Steve Carell & Ricky Gervais The Office

Check out the video embedded here below of Michael and David’s humorous interaction from the opening of tonight’s episode.

For those of you not aware, Gervais played David Brent on the original UK version of The Office and his character is who the Michael Scott character was based on.

Ricky Gervais To Meet Steve Carell In An ‘Office’ Cameo

Yes, another story about Ricky Gervais! Yay!

I know you’re all thrilled, and this one will be the last for a while, promise…unless of course something else big enough to cover comes up tomorrow, of course.

It’s being reported that Gervais will have a cameo appearance on NBC’s hit comedy series, The Office. According to Vulture, Gervais will have a brief encounter with star Steve Carell, who’s soon leaving the show after seven solid seasons.

For those who don’t know, Carell plays the same role on the show that Gervais played on the original BBC series of the same name, which Gervais created. Since the American version has become so popular, there’s been many occasions where Gervais has thrown bitter fits at the success of others based on something he created (assumed to be completely staged for comedic purposes), including this past Sunday during the Golden Globes where he and Carell had a brief confrontation that many people were talking about.

Ricky Gervais Explains Random Disappearance During Golden Globes

The recent Golden Globes are getting a ton of attention due to the controversial (sorta…it’s not really all that bad — has anyone even seen South Park?) hosting job by comedian Ricky Gervais.

Most notably, Gervais took major shots at some questionably nominated films and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association themselves…during their own awards ceremony, nevertheless. Due to this, it was immediately said by one member of the HFPA that Gervais would not return as host, nor would his work ever be nominated. Unless they were bribed effectively enough, of course.

Apart from all of that drama, a mini-mystery arose during the program where Gervais disappeared for about an hour or so, sparking conspiracy theories that he had been fired mid-show. This was not the case, as it turns out, as Ricky explained what happened.

Ricky Gervais Banished From All Things Golden Globes, Including Future Nominations?

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is at it again, folks.

Just one night after putting on yet another mediocre-yet-entertaining ceremony, it sounds like the organization behind the awards has minimal sense of humor, and wants to punish the best part about their show of the last two years: the host.

Last year, Ricky Gervais made his hosting debut at the Golden Globe Awards, and pushed so many buttons that many (myself included) thought that they would never bring him back. Shockingly, they quickly announced that Gervais would be back again, showing that they’re okay with some comic jabs. Of course Gervais would have to up the ante this year, and that he did…but apparently he crossed the “line.”

Click on over for a quote from a Hollywood Foreign Press member, and to see a video of the Gervais opening monologue that has celebrities and suits so very bitter this fine day.

68th Annual Golden Globe Awards: Who Won?

The 68th annual Golden Globe awards ceremony was held tonight, and as always, we like to share with you the all of the big winners.

We know very few people even take the Globes seriously anymore, but if anything, it’s a good way to get a loose feel at what direction the upcoming Academy Awards might go in. And surprisingly, this year’s event was pretty entertaining. Host Ricky Gervais was hilarious yet again (he should really just host every year), and some deserving winners were crowned like Boardwalk Empire, Trent Reznor, and so on. Yes, there was a little too much Glee, but overall a decent show.

A bit of controversy did however arise at one point. It became apparent that Mr. Gervais had disappeared and had not returned in over an hour as Twitter collectively scratched its head. Then, as if nothing had happened, he returned! Quite strange.

You can see the entire list of winners by clicking on over to the other side. All winners have been bolded and starred!

Globes

When the hilarious British comedian Ricky Gervais hosted the 67th annual Golden Globes ceremony this past January, it was one of the better hosting jobs we’ve seen lately (Doom Discussion: 67th Annual Golden Globe Winners & Losers).

His work was also incredibly sharp and may have pushed a few boundaries here and there (including a few jabs at broadcasting network, NBC), so it was thought that despite the popularity, he probably would not be back.

In a surprising turn-of-events, NBC has proven that success is far more important than personal feelings, and it has been announced that Gervais will return to host the Globes yet again next year. With 17 million viewers (up 12%) in his first hosting go-round, none can argue that the move doesn’t make all the sense in the world.

Blu-ray Review: Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian

night at the museum: battle of the smithsonianNight at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
Blu-ray Edition
Directed by Shawn Levy
Starring Ben Stiller, Amy Adams, Owen Wilson, Hank Azaria, Christopher Guest
Fox Home Entertainment
Release Date: December 1, 2009

I’ll be honest, when I found out the exhibits at the Museum of Natural History would be coming to life on screen once more in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian I wasn’t all that enthusiastic. I figured the “magic” was already revealed in the first movie and that this sequel would just be more of the same. Let’s face it, the first film, which starred Ben Stiller as Larry Daley, a night guard at the Museum of Natural History in New York, was a hit, so why mess with a perfect formula? That’s why screenwriters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant were smart enough to stick with what drew audiences in initially — the inanimate exhibit figures coming to life at sundown and Larry fighting villains attempting to gain control of a powerful object — while making it much more than just a simple repeat of its predecessor.

The sequel finds Larry out of his museum night guard duds and into the role of CEO of Daley Devices, the company founded to sell his inventions, like the The Glow-In-The-Dark Flashlight and The Unloseable Keyring. The successful Larry decides to visit his old place of employment, the Museum of Natural History, the setting of 2006’s Night at the Museum, which is now closed for renovations and its famous exhibits packed away in crates to be sent to permanent storage at the Smithsonian Institute’s Federal Archives in Washington DC. After hours, the figures come to life and Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) explains that the Pharaoh Ahkmenrah’s Tablet, which is what animates the figures at sundown, won’t be going to the Archives with everyone else. While the situation is dire for his friends, Larry is distracted by his phone’s incoming messages and all of his business ventures to do anything about it.
