The Best Presidential Movie Moments In Honor Of 'The Campaign'

August 10th, 2012 1:07pm EDT
The Campaign
Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis aren’t running for president in The Campaign, but they should be. If movie presidents have taught us anything, it's that presidents are prone to moments of pure awesomeness. Here are some of those moments - but first, a bonus clip from The Campaign:

Now back to our regularly-scheduled list:

The Simpsons Movie ("Arnold Schwarzenegger")

The Simpsons Movie takes a look at what could happen if we overturn the 200-year-plus rule that no foreign born citizen can become President of the United States. Influence from outside sources? Blasp...

Review: 'Extract' Is Funny But Not What Expected

September 3rd, 2009 9:44am EDT
Extract
"Extract" is not quite what was expected. Sure, it's funny. Sure, the awkward uncomfortableness of previous Mike Judge films ("Office Space," "Idiocracy") is here. There's just something, well, different. Certainly not in a bad way. There's just something a little more Grown Up about "Extract." If "Office Space" is the equivalent of a 25 year old human being, "Extract" represents that same entity at 38. And there are plenty of comparisons to be made to "Office Space."

Jason Bateman plays Joel (a mature and barely less disillusioned Peter Gibbons), the owner of an vanilla extract plant wh...

Dustin Milligan
Dustin Milligan, formerly Ethan Ward of the new "90210," (Sorry ladies, he says there's no chance in hell he's returning) co-stars in the new Mike Judge directed film "Extract" (full review tomorrow). We've seen the film, and Dustin does his best to steal the scene as male gigolo Brad from co-stars Jason Bateman and Ben Affleck - notorious scene stealers themselves.

Dustin discusses what it's like to work on a Mike Judge film, his childhood porn watching habits and figuring out why Kristen Wiig thinks he's a perv.

Mike: The production notes from "Extract" describe Brad as a "dull-wi...

Movies That Did Not Live Up To Their Potential

March 3rd, 2009 10:39am EST
Star Wars Episode III
Nothing can be more frustrating than something not living up to its potential. Movies are especially guilty of this. There's something about watching a movie that was on to something but didn't quite make it that can stick with you. Watching them unfold feels akin to a runner screaming towards the finish line only to fall and break their ankle thirty feet short. Films like these fall apart for many reasons be it last minute changes by a studio, unnecessary plot twists, or just good old-fashioned incompetence. For whatever reason, these movies are bad-they just didn't have to be. Here's a fe...

Two comedies sneak into the “Fall Movie Preview” even though they will be released before the official start of autumn on Sept. 23. Idiocracy (Sept. 1) stars Luke Wilson as Pvt.
