“Undeclared” Ep. 7 and 8, “Addicts” / “God Visits”

“Undeclared” is now airing on IFC, and we thought we’d take this opportunity to revisit the show that further cemented broadcast television’s inability to recognize the genius of Judd Apatow. Every week, Matt Singer and Alison Willmore will be offering their thoughts on two more episodes. Episode 7 Addicts Written by Jennifer Konner & Alexandra […]

Reconsidering “Anchorman”

As I walked into 92YTribeca for a special screening and panel discussion of the 2004 film “Anchorman” last night, I asked one of the panelists, my friend and IFC News contributor R. Emmet Sweeney, if I was in the right place to complain about how “Anchorman” is a terrible, overrated film. I was making a […]

Recommended: Will Ferrell and Adam McKay Celebrate IMDb

As part of its 20th anniversary, the Internet Movie Database has been presenting a series of exclusive interviews with actors and filmmakers about their work, careers and, yes, how much they love IMDb. Turns out Kevin Spacey really digs it, though it sounds to me like Oliver Stone might think IMDb is actually a person. […]

Recommended: It’s The Effing Catalina Wine Mixer (T-Shirt)!

There are those that say that Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and John C. Reilly’s 2008’s comedy “Step Brothers” is a funny movie. And then there are those who say it is the greatest movie — nay, the highest achievement of art and human expression ever in the history of civilization. These people are correct. You […]

Toronto 2010: “Everything Must Go,” Reviewed

Reviewed at the 2010 Toronto Film Festival. It didn’t take long to start pondering the irony of writer/director Dan Rush’s surname while watching “Everything Must Go,” an adaptation of a Raymond Carver short story that would’ve been best left that way. Instead, it is a 95-minute opportunity wasted as Will Ferrell mopes around the front […]

“The Other Guys,” Reviewed

“The Other Guys,” the latest collaboration between director Adam McKay and star Will Ferrell, is a film about excess. It juxtaposes the excesses of our unregulated financial sector with the excesses of the buddy cop movie, two uniquely American pursuits that collide in one surprisingly clever story by screenwriters McKay and Chris Henchy. There’s a […]

Video: Seth Rogen and Will Ferrell Cross Paths at Comic-Con

Red carpets are weird under optimal circumstances, but they’re especially bizarre at Comic-Con. Instead of just covering one movie and interviewing its stars as they walk down the carpet from one end to the other, most Comic-Con carpets are organized — like the presentations in Hall H — by film studio. So all the Marvel […]

Del Toro, Hill Haunt Hall H: Comic Con 2010 Day One, Part One

“The first rule of Comic-Con is to show up in your own costume, and I can see as I look in the hall, not a lot of people in costume,” Will Ferrell said as he surveyed the audience in the San Diego Convention Center’s cavernous Hall H on the first day of Comic-Con. It was […]

Owen Wilson, from comedic great to Great Dane.

Every decade has its comic icon. We envision Cary Grant as the shining light of the ’30s and ’40s, Rock Hudson for the pre-’60s transitional period, no one as the emblem of the hippie age (who could afford to have comedic icons then, aside from dabblers like Richard Pryor?), Robin Williams in the ’80s, Pauly […]

Live From New York, They’re SNL Movies

This week’s “MacGruber” is one of the best “Saturday Night Live” movies ever made. Of course, given the competition, that’s not saying very much. It’s not easy to take a five minute sketch and turn it into a 90 minute feature and we know it’s not easy because almost every time Lorne Michaels and the […]
