COMEDY DAY: JENNIFER ANISTON & JASON SUDEIKIS IN "WE'RE THE MILLERS"! SHIRLEY MCLAINE, ALAN ARKIN, CHRISTINA RICCI IN "WILD OATS"! GEMMA ARTERTON IN "THE WRIGHT GIRLS"! TRAILER FOR "LOLA VERSUS" WITH JOEL KINNAMAN

Well, people, it seems we shall deal with some comedies today. First of all, "Deadline" reports that after HORRIBLE BOSSES Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis will join forces again in WE'RE THE MILLERS. The story of the film will see Jason Sudeikis (the role was first meant for Jason Bateman) playing a pot dealer who hires a fake wife and two kids in order to create a fake family so that he can smuggle 1000 pounds of weed cross country in his RV. Jennifer Aniston will play the fake wife, who is actually a hooker, good Lord, while the two kids, yet to be cast, will be juvenile delinquents. Colour me scandalized! :)
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
If you are in the mood for some crazy comedies, here's an original one: according to "MovieWeb" two Academy Award winners, Shirley MacLaine and Alan Arkin will join forces in WILD OATS. The
story of the hilarious comedy revolves around a retired widow (Shirley MacLaine) who hits the jackpot when she receives a Social Security check mistakenly made out for $900,000 instead of $900. She and her best friend (Jacki Weaver) then take off for Las Vegas, only to become media sensations and fugitives from justice. It is interesting that the rest of the cast also has some well known names such as Christina Ricci, Christopher Walken, Bill Pullman, John Corbett, Maria Bello... The third comedy for today might have gorgeous Gemma Arterton (PRINCE OF PERSIA, CLASH OF THE TITANS) in the lead role. Titled THE WRIGHT GIRLS, the story of the comedy will revolve around two young actresses who live together, pretend to be best friends and are co-stars on a successful television show. In reality, they detest each other and go to extreme and violent lengths to do one another in when they end up competing for the same movie role.

And the only trailer me has for you today is also kind of a comedic one. It's for a romantic comedy
LOLA VERSUS in which Greta Gerwig (who is, beside Kristen Wiig and Steve Carell, one of the greatest mysteries for me, since she seems to have no acting talent at all with her frigid facial expressions and expressionless approach, but still gets leading roles?) plays Lola, a 29-year-old woman dumped by her longtime boyfriend Luke (Joel Kinnaman, looking better than ever! As you know he is our new ROBOCOP, and was supposed to play the first knight in ARTHUR AND LANCELOT epic) just three weeks before their wedding. With the help of her close friends Henry (Hamish Linklater) and Alice (Zoe Lister-Jones), Lola
embarks on a series of desperate encounters in an attempt to find her place in the world as a single woman approaching 30.

  1. Never heard of this Great Gerwig. Gemma Arterton looks like Gina Gershon in that one. Replacing Bateman with Sudeikis? That's...odd.

    1. not sure we needed to hear about her at all :) Bateman is rather busy, has at least five future projects, so he probably didn't have time for this one too.

  2. Wait a minute, did my Dezzie just dis Wiig? *sigh* She made me laugh throughout Bridesmaids...but, I will respectfully disagree with you since you are not a fan of all American comedies and I am very easily amused LOL =P

    I'm glad to see Jennifer and Jason paired up together again although the story seems rather played.

    I really happy to see Walken again. He's one of my favorites!

    1. LOL, sorry Elsie, but I just have zero admiration for comedians with blank faces and no expression such as her, Carell, Tina Fey and similar, I don't get what's funny about them. I mean I could act like that too :)
      We do like Jens and Jason :)
      I'm not entirely sure that Walken is in the cast, it's possible that Arkin has replaced him, but I'm not sure :)

    2. Oh no...sorry to hear about Walken =(

      Also sorry to hear that you rattled off all the comedians who make laugh LOLOL =P

  3. Gerwig is new for me but I'm not sure the movie is for me. I'd like to see some pensioners escape with a bunch of cash though.

  4. Lola Vs looks like a funny movie! But I feel like I saw the whole movie watching that trailer!!

    Wild Oats reminds me of a news story I heard where a guy got 2 million dollars acidently put into his bank acount and when he spent it and got caught the government tried to put him in jail for 20 years!!

    1. I think that happens more often that you know, we had similar stories here as well, and around the world too :) So be careful what you do if millions suddenly appear on your account :)

  5. They need to do an Arthur and Lancelot movie where Arthur does Lancelot and it's Gwen that's all put out about it.

    And that pic of Jennifer Aniston looks really strange. It doesn't even look like her. The skin is really dark and so is the hair. It's like she went crazy in a spray tan salon. Oh well, I heard she spends $150,000 a year on beauty products.

  6. that Lola film looks cool...apart from reminding me of a Kinks song

  7. I think Lola Versus should be about Lola Bunny from Loney Toons...

  8. Wild Oats sounds like a good one, or at least I wish that would happen to me. I'd take the money and hide it in some off shore bank account then skip the country. Not my fault they were stupid enough to add an few extra zeros, give it back, never!..hahaha...Aniston as a hooker, when isn't she a hooker? oops did I say that outloud?

    2. he is sooo doomed, dahling, I kept him under control while you was in Eirie incognito planning our mission there. He basically ate from my hands, got him real tamed :)

    3. Cat, you naughty Pat, you do realize that the money could be a money saved for some kids surgery or something? You give the money back or give it to me for savekeeping :)

    4. Pfft all I hear it talk the cat will never go down from a couple of yappers..haha...NEVER! They screw up and the money is mine. If if was for a kid, the government wouldn't have it.

    5. you trust your government too much, Cat.

    6. I figure it all goes into their pocket, not to the kid.

  12. Wild Oats is the one for me. The story has great comedic potential and it will be fun to watch Shirley and Allen work together.

    The Cat is already causing trouble for us darling. He claims he's had you on the ropes while I was away. I know he's lying, he could never defeat you.

    1. pffft, that's just his wishful thinking, dahling, He did wanted to rope me up but I don't do SM and bondage, although I am playful and slutty generally :)))
      Did you got our castle prepared for his torture? In that little Irish village we talked about?

    2. I've got the dungeon all ready for him. The rack has been installed, the cat o' nine tails is ready and I've hired a beast of a dungeon master.

      And that cat scarred me emotionally today with that rhyme today. He's going to have to pay. I've threatened to turn him into poo then make him into a poo sandwich.

      Delete
    3. So you would make me into a poo sandwich, is a poo sandwich yummy? I think you've been hanging around Dez too much, his poop talk has melted into your brain. Bring it on, The cat can take anything the likes of you two can dish out.

      you didn't clean away the nasty spiders, cobwebs and rats? We need those to make him more comfy :) I bet the dungeon master is some ebil Brit :PPP

  13. I love Jason Sudeikis. I think he's hysterical!! I would definitely check that out. I'm moody about Jennifer Anniston. One minute I love her, the next she annoys me. Hmmm...

  17. HAHA I think I might like that one. I always think Aniston is value for money!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It's all possible in Hollywood: Jennifer Aniston as a hooker. I dare her to let Paul Verhoeven be the director! Today's 'comedies' are so not funny, Dez, or is it me?

    1. 'tis true, my Blue friend, comedy is no more...

    2. I really think they should stop calling them comedies. Here we are, spending more than the occasional buck on a movie that isn't funny or original. They should call them 'Occasionally Funny Movies', not comedies. I know, it doesn't sound catchy....

      Delete
    3. you know what I think, Randy? The old comedies were good because they were based on warm, kind humour not on superficial physical one and the comedians had talent and warmth (Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, Robin Williams, even Eddie in old days). Today's comedians don't know a thing about comedy, they're all cold, artificial, and JACK ASS is funny to them.
