Fred Armisen and 50 Cent star in “Zero Dark Fiddy.”
There’s no doubt that Katheryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” was a fantastic film filled with stirring performances by Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt, Kyle Chandler and everyone else. There’s no doubt that the film deserves all the accolades it’s been receiving. However one thing that everyone (even Congress!) can agree on about “Zero Dark Thirty” is this: It’s not very funny. In fact, we may not have LOL’d even once.
Luckily Jimmy Kimmel set out to fix that with “Zero Dark Fiddy” starring rapper 50 Cent (despite what you might have heard, that’s “Fifty” not “Fiddy”) as a Marine on a mission determined to find Osama Bin Laden who is played by Portlandia’s very own Fred Armisen. 50 Cent heads out armed only with the intel of a pumpkin spice latte delivery and a pair of lethal gun-chucks. It’s a fight to the finish with more than a few laughs, which is more than we can say about “Zero Dark Thirty”
