Adam’s Hilarious Jewish Movie Pick: In a World

In: Adam, Movies
in-a-world-movie-review

Now this is one funny movie. Basically a sitcom premise for the big screen, In a World follows the neurotic and unaware of her own gorgeousness Lake Bell as she attempts to break into the apparently very male dominated arena of trailer movie voice overs. You know, the guys who say: “In a world where men and women have to fight for survival etc etc..” Well, apparently this “world” is quite commanded by sexy sounding men who do NOT want to give up any screen time to a lady. Lake Bell takes issue with this. The daughter of one of the most famous movie voice over artists, Lake lands job after job as she burrows into this exclusive career to the dismay of her coworkers and acclaimed father.

An odd but fun premise for a movie, the real meat is in the relationships Lake has with her family, her clients and the odd duck who has a crush on her. Lake plays alongside some C-List names including Fred Melamed, Rob Corddry and Michaela Watkins who all play comedy to the max in their respective roles. Each character seems completely consumed by their own world and issues to the dismay of everyone else around them, but in classic american film style: deep down everyone is essentially a good person and cares for one another. It’s sweet, it’s damn funny and it’s definitely gonna give you a laugh: watch this one with a date.

If a professional hockey player can become a world-caliber figure skater in a matter of months, why can’t cricket players from India play in Major League Baseball. After all, it is the movies. However, the latter is actually a true story and the basis for Disney’s upcoming film, Million Dollar Arm, starring Jon Hamm as sports agent J.B. Berstein.

Berstein is inspired to stage a reality sports competition in India in an attempt to discover cricket players who might have major-league worthy fastballs. Through the contest, Bernstein enlists Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and brings them to the United States to train with baseball coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), with the intent of ultimately having the cricketers become contracted by a Major League Baseball team. During their stay, Singh and Patel adapt to an American lifestyle while under the care of Bernstein, who is simultaneously shaping his own personal life. Eventually Singh and Patel both get signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. In other words, the perfect live action rags-to-riches Disney tale.

Lake Bell and Alan Arkin also co-star in the film. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Million Dollar Arm hits theaters May 16, 2014. Check out the trailer below. I have to admit, I got sucked in and looking forward to checking it out.

If you’re like me and love a good movie where the female lead or leads find their inner strength and fight back against the “bad guys,” just as Jennifer Lopez does in Enough or Ashley Judd does in Double Jeopardy, then I think you might like this movie.

The first trailer for this new thriller titled The Black Rock has just been released, starring Katie Aselton, Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth. In the movie, the women play three childhood friends that embark on a weekend getaway to the isolated island of Black Rock, a remote island off the coast of Maine. Shortly after they arrive, the girls discover that they are not alone.

Expecting to be the only people on the island, the women are caught off guard when they come across three guys who are on the island to hunt. One of the women recognizes one of the guys as the brother of a guy she went to high school with. After a disturbing incident occurs later that night, what was supposed to be a relaxing and fun little getaway for three friends quickly turns into an absolute nightmare that will propel the women into survival mode and beyond. The film hits theaters on May 17, 2013. Check out the first trailer below!

I don’t realize just how much I miss Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, until I see her pop up on some show or online video. When Mullally guest starred on an episode of “Happy Endings” this season as Penny Hearts’ mom, memories of her comic genius on “Will & Grace” came flooding back. While not the greatest daytime talk show host, there is no denying that Megan is one fine comedic actress. Some network needs to snatch her up and give Megan her own sitcom to star in immediately. Perhaps, the following video can provide inspiration for a new show.

For Funny or Die’s newest video, they’ve enlisted Megan to play the eccentric Peggy Dvorak. This acting coach teaches aspiring starlets the fine art of being cool. She takes these girls in and instructs them to throw conventional wisdom out the window and to become cool renegades. Toss out that boxed set of “Sex and the City” (guilty as charged) and trade them in for NPR (National Public Radio). Also an offense in Dvorkak’s teachings is listening or singing to Ke dollar sign ha aka Ke$ha. Again, I’m guilty as charged. What’s their punishment for committing such a heinous crime? Watch the video and you’ll find out.

Scream 4 Loses A Cast Member

In: Donovan, Movies

Filming for “Scream 4” just got underway, but the producers have already faceing a major hurdle. One of their actresses has dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with their current gig. Now the producers are scrambling to find a last-minute replacement for said actress.

31-year-old Lake Bell broke the news via her Twitter account. She tweeted: “Scheduling conflicts with my current gig means I cant do #Scream4! (Hey horror bloggers, I know who the killer is…) #i’llnevertell”. Bell has appeared in the feature film “It’s Complicated” and the legal drama “Boston Legal“. The scheduling conflict is probably due to the untitled Ivan Reitman project she’s currently attached to.

The brunette beauty was supposed to play Deputy Judy Hicks who works with Dewey (David Arquette). Here’s what the casting call revealed about the character:

“A police officer, decidedly sexy but a bit off, she knew Sidney from high school. Didn’t make a big enough impression for Sidney to remember her. Likes her boss, Dewey, perhaps a little too much. NAME CAMEOS PREFERRED;”
