Will Ferrell Rules Out 'Anchorman 2'!

March 23rd, 2010 8:07am EDT
Will Ferrell
Will Ferrell has ruled out a sequel to hit film "Anchorman," because the all-star cast is too busy to sign up to the movie.

The funnyman had been in talks to create a follow-up to 2004's "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," and last year Ferrell revealed the "odds are good" for a second run.

However, after trying to book in the movie's stars, including Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, for a second film, the actor admits it's impossible to arrange.

He says, "I thought we were doing it. Now I've heard it's going to be too hard to get everyone together."

'Valentine's Day' & Other Movies With Star-Studded Casts

He
Ah, Valentine's Day weekend, the perfect time for Hollywood to embrace the mainstream audience by giving them cheesy and wonderful romantic comedies to prepare for the big day of love. This year the aptly named "Valentine's Day" is perfectly timed to get big notice, but one of the first things that impresses viewers is seeing the celebrity cast involved. It seems like almost every major actor is involved with this project, including Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Alba, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Garner, Patrick Dempsey, and on and on with at least ten other ...

'(500) Days Of Summer' & Other Films With Great Impromptu Music Scenes

December 21st, 2009 10:15pm EST
500 Days of Summer
(500) Days of Summer was one of the best movies of the year. The Golden Globe nominated film will be released on DVD on December 22nd

, and for those who haven't seen it - we recommend you check it out.

We especially love the musical scene where Joseph Gordon-Levitt charms the audience with his dance moves to Hall & Oates "You Make My Dreams Come True." His character, Tom, falls head over heels in love with Zooey Deschanel's character, Summer, and what better way to express his love than in song? When he thinks about her he wants to sing and dance and everyone else is as happy as he is...

Judd Apatow: His Career And Latest 'Funny People'

July 30th, 2009 10:38am EDT
Judd Apatow
This Friday marks the theatrical release of "Funny People," the Judd Apatow dramedy starring Adam Sandler as a terminally ill stand-up comedian. As the buzz around this film has grown, fans and critics alike have wondered if Apatow, who never met a penis joke he didn't like, was making a huge mistake by veering into "serious" territory. Pretty odd, considering that one of Apatow's most loved and respected works was the TV series, "Freaks and Geeks," a show that beautifully walked the line between hilarity and heartbreaking realism.

Although it may seem like he came from out of nowhere to...

The Best & Worst Of Jack Black

June 23rd, 2009 11:25am EDT
Year One
If only life were so simple as to allow enjoyable Jack Black be noticeably different than awful Jack Black. Perhaps the slightly thinner, slightly less beardy version of him could be the best version of him and the more unshaven and huskier version could be the worst version of him, or vice versa; something, anything, that would allow the audience to know what not to waste their time on.

Yes, if only life were this simple.

Sadly, it's not, otherwise I would not have recently lost 97 minutes of my life to Black's latest film, "Year One". While having its moments coming mainly fro...

Has Will Ferrell's Comedy Gone The Way Of The Dinosaur?

June 12th, 2009 10:17am EDT
Will Ferrell
Once upon a time, I used to think Will Ferrell was the funniest man alive. I watched him religiously as Alex Trebek in the "Saturday Night Live" celebrity "Jeopardy" sketches, chuckling as he suffered through the shenanigans of Darrell Hammond's Sean Connery.

Ferrell's impressions on "SNL" and wacky roles in movies like "Old School" and "Anchorman" perpetually kept me laughing. His characters had this special zany quality to them that made them extremely quotable.

I personally idolized his ability to make people laugh, and I respected that a man who studied broadcast journalism...

Spotlight On Kathryn Hahn

March 5th, 2009 12:22pm EST
Kathryn Hahn
There are those types of actors in Hollywood who have recognizable faces but their names seem to slip your mind. Remember when Philip Seymour Hoffman and Don Cheadle were those types of elusive actors? They were in every genre of movie and their face was recognizable, but you drew a blank on their names. Now Philip is an Oscar winner and Don is an Oscar nominee. Kathryn Hahn shouldn't be one of those actors anymore! Drill her face AND name into your head - Kathryn Hahn.

Although Kathryn tends to gravitate towards comedic roles, she has a background in Broadway and television and made ...

'Eastbound And Down' Feels Too Much Like Another Ferrell-McKay Movie

February 16th, 2009 3:04pm EST
Eastbound And Down
The plot for Eastbound And Down reads like the next Will Ferrell/Adam McKay comedy: a superstar becomes too big for his britches, then crashes and burns. His only hope is to become a better person and get back to his winning ways.

The busted superstar in this case is Kenny Powers (played by Danny McBride), a power pitching closer that got the last out of the World Series at the age of 19 for Atlanta – they didn’t spring for any MLB licenses, so it's just "Atlanta." He signs a multi-year contract, and soon after trashes Atlanta when they begin to lose, so it's off to the only team that...

Of course, this is one of Chris Parnell's lines from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Naturally, I was (way too) excited to share this fact with Chris and, well, he (ahem) had no idea what I was talking about -- at least at first.

Regardless, Chris was nice enough to join me the day after his birthday and discuss everything from his time on Saturday Night Live, helping put YouTube on the map with "Lazy Sund...

Paul Rudd's Best Work… That You've Never Seen

Paul Rudd
In the mid-nineties a skinny, nerdy, somewhat sloppy guy burst into the shiny, chic, coiffed world of Clueless' Cher Horowitz and his quick wit and sparkling eyes managed to win her in the end. That guy was Paul Rudd, and he had tween girls all across the country replacing their JTT and Mark-Paul Gosselaar pin-ups with those of someone with a bit more character. Though Rudd has worked steadily ever since his "break-out" role in Clueless, he was often relegated to supporting roles in big projects with even bigger stars (like Romeo & Juliet, Anchorman, or Friends), burying his knack for dry...

Funny Film Cameos

Ben Stiller
A cameo used to refer to a famous person who made an appearance in a film as him or herself. Now actors play small parts as a character in a film for comic relief. Most cameos are non-credited due to the shortness of the screen time or because they are so famous they don't need a big credit. Some are publicity stunts. Others pay tribute to that actor's work in a similar role, but they are all for the most part hilarious. Following are 10 of film's funniest cameos in no particular order:

Judd Apatow Again Fashions Gimmick Into Gold In Uproarious 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'

It became nothing short of voracious upon learning it’s backed by producer Judd Apatow of "Superbad," "Knocked Up," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" fame (also with high hopes for his "Pineapple Express," which opens on Aug. 8, 2008).

The Frat Pack: Pledging to Make Audiences Laugh

April 7th, 2008 2:00pm EDT

A majority of comedic films released over the past 10 years have fallen into either one of two categories: stupid with borderline inappropriate humor or stupid with completely inappropriate humor. Occasionally, a comedy comes along that doesn't quite fit either of these descriptions (i.e., Wedding Crashers, which is completely inappropriate but far from stupid). But these films are few and far between.

However, it is important to note that the word "stupid" is not meant to have a negative connotation here. True, it is sometimes more satisfying to watch a comedy based entirely on witty ...

Point/Counterpoint: Should There Be A Separate Comedic Category For The Academy Awards?

February 13th, 2008 1:00pm EST
Think of your favorite comedies. Whether it be Monty Python And The Holy Grail, Caddyshack, Animal House, or recent films like Dumb and Dumber, Anchorman, The 40-Year-Old Virgin or Borat, they all have something in common. Each film boasts incredible performances, and the Academy has not recognized any of them. How is this fair? Bill Murray, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller - all the successful comic actors should get their due.

It is equally hard to create a great comedy as it is to make a gripping drama. The Golden Globes have a separate category for comedic perfo...

As a film junkie and music geek I always look forward to seeing what songs directors will put in certain scenes to create the right mood. Finding the perfect song isn't always easy. The song has to fit that key moment or it could ruin the movie.

Following is a list of songs that have really made a movie scene stand out. I'm sure you will notice two things about me: I love chick flicks and 80's movies. This wasn't an easy task. I found over 50 songs and cut the list down to 15 with a few honorable mentions.
