Posted by LiveFor on February 5, 2010

Directed by Kevin Smith (Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Clerks, Mallrats), Cop Out features two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card who find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner-against-crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.

Kevin Smith directs “Cop Out” from a screenplay by Robb Cullen & Mark Cullen (TV’s “Las Vegas”). The film stars Bruce Willis (the “Die Hard” films), Tracy Morgan (TV’s “30 Rock”), Adam Brody (“Mr. & Mrs. Smith”), Kevin Pollak (“Tropic Thunder”), Guillermo Diaz (TV’s “Weeds”) and Seann William Scott (“Role Models”).

Cop Out – Trailer for Kevin Smith’s new one

Posted by LiveFor on December 31, 2009

This is the trailer for the film that used to be called A Couple of Dicks. The studio got cold feet about that so now it is called Cop Out. Personally, I think that is a bit of a cop out…ah I see what they did there!

Looks like it could be fun and good to see Smith getting to direct more big names after Zack & Miri Makes a Porno (that was a great film). Smith didn’t write this one though, that honour goes to Rob Cullen.

Two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner-against-crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.

The film also stars Seann William Scott, Adam Brody and Michelle Trachtenberg.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The film is out on 6th February 2010.

By the way if anyone knows Street Pete can you ask him why Bruce Willis looks so much like him.

Role Models, 2008 – Movie Review

Posted by LiveFor on November 19, 2008


Director: David Wain
Starring: Seann William Scott, Paul Rudd, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Elizabeth Banks, Jane Lynch
Running Time:
Score: 6 / 10

This review by the Critical Critics – they’ve got a great site.


I can’t help but think I’ve seen Role Models before. My reasons for thinking this isn’t because I’ve actually seen the movie before. It’s because the cast of this idiotic buddy film is the same as every other crude, idiotic comedy in the last few years (thanks for that, Judd Apatow). After awhile, all these movies just start to blend into one another . . .

Seann William Scott basically reprises his American Pie role of Stifler, just with a name change. He’s now Wheeler, a live for the moment, obsessed with boobs guy who loves his dead-end job as the mascot for Minotaur energy drink. Paul Rudd roughly redresses all his latest characters as Danny, Wheeler’s best friend and coworker, and a guy stuck spinning his wheels in the proverbial mud of life. When Danny’s girlfriend Beth (Elizabeth Banks) dumps him, he spirals further into the abyss, dragging Wheeler with him — they lose their job and very nearly their freedom. Luckily, Beth is an attorney and she manages to get their 30 day jail sentence reduced to 150 hours of community service working at a Big Brother type organization — Sturdy Wings.

Wheeler is paired with an out of control 10-year old boy named Ronnie (Bobb’e J. Thompson), who curses like a gypsy and has his own obsession with boobies. Danny gets handed Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), a hopelessly dorky teenager obsessed with L.A.I.R.E. — a real-world recreation of Dungeons & Dragons — complete with foam swords and fanciful medieval wardrobes.

Armed with these scenarios and the demented stylings of Jane Lynch (she plays Gayle Sweeny, founder of Sturdy Wings), the writing team of Paul Rudd, David Wain, Ken Marino and Timothy Dowling were easily able to churn out mostly funny situations that required little thought on their part. After all, it never gets old watching a miserable guy try and understand a kid in a cape running around pretending to be a great knight. It gets even better when we see there are hundreds of people like this — all of them taking their fantasy pastime way too seriously (I especially got a kick out of King Argotron (Ken Jeong)). What does get old though is the constant barrage of cursing coming from little Ronnie. Initially the shock and awe of hearing a child curse so much was good for a laugh or two but the humor quickly drains away; it eventually led to my asking, “Why doesn’t someone just smack this kid in the face already?”

It isn’t all just shits and giggles though — there is a heartwarming side to Role Models as well. It’s the formulaic case where the teachers learn from their students — Wheeler comes to the realization he’s got a lot in common with Ronnie and that when he abandoned him at a keg party, he reinforced Ronnie’s social problems brought on by his father leaving the house; Danny stops trying to change Augie, decides to remove the stick from his own ass and let loose going so far as to join Augie in the final battle for the crown of the realm.

You’ll find that there is nothing that breaks new ground in this comedy though — you’ve seen all that Role Models has to offer in one form or another in plenty of films. Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott do work well together but I firmly believe these guys can be paired with just about anybody and manage to make even the most nonsensical buddy film amusing. For me, I figure it’s probably a good time to start the infusion of some new blood into these comedy types before they become completely stale — it’s not quite there yet, but it is definitely on the horizon.

Role Models – Red Band Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on September 16, 2008

Danny and Wheeler, two salesmen who trash a company truck on an energy drink-fueled bender. Upon their arrest, the court gives them a choice: do hard time or spend 150 service hours with a mentorship program. After one day with the kids, however, jail doesn’t look half bad.
Surrounded by annoying do-gooders, Danny struggles with his every neurotic impulse to guide Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) through the trials of becoming a man. Unfortunately, the guy just dumped by his girlfriend (Elizabeth Banks) has only sarcasm to offer a bashful 16-year-old obsessed with medieval role play.
Meanwhile, charming Wheeler tries to trade in an addiction to partying and women to assist a fifth-grader named Ronnie (Bobb’e J. Thompson) redirect his foul-mouthed ways. It would probably help if Ronnie’s new mentor wasn’t an overgrown adolescent whose idea of quality time includes keggers in Venice Beach.
Once the center’s ex-con director (Jane Lynch) gives them an ultimatum, Danny and Wheeler are forced to tailor their brand of immature wisdom to their charges. And if they can just make it through probation without getting thrown in jail, the world’s worst role models will prove that, sometimes, it takes a village idiot to raise a child.
