They're called gags for a reason, folks.
The idea of gross-out comedy is nothing new: Since the dawn of modern cinema, filmmakers have tried to capture audiences' "yucks" along with their yuks. Beginning with 1914's silent feature "Nell's Eugenic Wedding," in which a character eats soap and then repeatedly vomits for supposed chuckles, bodily fluids, nudity and innuendo have been trotted out for an uncomfortable laugh.
This weekend sees the release of "Movie 43," perhaps the granddaddy of all gross-out movies, consisting of several comedy shorts strung together to make an aggressively raunchy full-length movie. Boasting some of Hollywood's top names — Emma Stone, Hugh Jackman and Elizabeth Banks, to name just a few — performing unspeakable acts, some wide-eyed moviegoers may find the flick tough to stomach.
They say the best way to acclimate to a new experience or overcome a phobia is to face it. "Movie 43" doesn't come out in theaters until this weekend, so we can't show you more than the trailer right now, but we can condition you with the most gag-worthy gags in recent memory. Without further ado, please enjoy ("enjoy") the 10 gross-out movie scenes that haunt our dreams. Get More »
All too often, the scariest part of Halloween is coming up with a brilliant, budget-friendly costume — especially if you've waited until the last minute again (really, when are we going to learn?).
But now that All Hallows Eve is almost upon us, there's no avoiding this monster-in-the-house any longer.
That's why NextMovie has prepared a simple list of easy-to-assemble ensembles sure to save you from squandering your precious Saturday afternoon in line at the local Halloween pop-up shop.
Admit it. You've had relationships that turned into horror shows. The screaming, the crying, the panic, the knife-wielding ... well, we can only take this metaphor so far.
'Tis the season for horror, romance and comic hijinks in equal measure. Love a good scare? In honor of Halloween, we've reimagined six romantic comedies as outright horror movies — courtesy of our friend Old Red Jalopy. Get More »
Apparently, single people love "The Hangover" and "The Notebook."
In the wild and wooly world of internet dating, sites are in constant search of some kind of quantifiable algorithm to get people off their laptops and into each others' laps.
Some say the way into a man's heart is through his stomach, but real men know the way into our hearts is through our favorite movies, something those dauntless romantological theorists at eHarmony Labs have looked into deeply, with a thorough illustrated charticle to prove it. Get More »
Manly men like action movies. And steak. And watching oiled-up gym rats wrestle until one is pinned down and submits to the other's brawny powers. (We'd say that men "love" these things, but manly men find that word too submissive.)
So, when Sylvester Stallone gathered some of the biggest names (and biceps) of the action star pantheon together for an epic ensemble piece entitled "The Expendables" back in 2010, he forged the manliest merger since the X chromosome collided with the Y. And on the heels of that triumph, "The Expendables 2" will be flooding theaters with testosterone yet again on Aug. 17. Get More »
The fiery actress, who also appears in NBC's hit series "The Office," married longtime boyfriend, writer Michael Koman on Saturday. The couple tied the knot in New York City in front of family and friends, according to People. Get More »
This Sunday, two movies will enter the MTV Movie Awards Arena. Only one will survive.
Actually, this trailer mashup has given us a new appreciation for just how epic and dangerous Annie's (Kristen Wiig) task as the maid of honor in "Bridesmaids" really was. Sure, Katniss' life was at stake at all times in "The Hunger Games," but Annie's journey was a pretty perilous one, too — especially on the plane to Vegas.
Donald Sutherland sets the ominous tone as both "Bridesmaids" and "The Hunger Games" fight for a Golden Popcorn Award on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
It's always sad when your favorite star leaves your favorite TV show, but when that star is "Bridesmaids" superstar Kristen Wiig and the show is "Saturday Night Live," well, let's just say that mixed feelings don't even begin to describe it. More Wiig movies? Great. Less Wiig every weekend?
Well, that's something even Mick Jagger is moved to tears over. Get More »
Katniss Everdeen may have survived the Games, but we'll have to see how she fares against Kristen Wiig and her band of crazies — or, rather, ladies — as "The Hunger Games" and "Bridesmaids" lead the 2012 MTV Movie Award nominations with eight apiece, including Movie of the Year.
That's not a typo: The usually dominant "Twilight" series and its 2011 entry, "Breaking Dawn - Part 1," nabbed only two nominations (Movie of the Year and Best Kiss), while movies like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," (six noms) "21 Jump Street" (six) and "The Help" (four) fared better and will have more chances at bringing home Golden Popcorn statues.
Judd Apatow, Hollywood's godfather of raunchy and sophisticated humor, is responsible for producing last year's breakout comedy "Bridesmaids." So it's no surprise that this year's best bet to succeed the wedding-centered laughfest is "The Five-Year Engagement," yet another marriage-minded, Apatow-produced movie.
Written by Jason Segel and his screenwriting partner Nicholas Stoller, who also directed, "The Five-Year Engagement" follows Tom (Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt), a San Francisco couple whose engagement is postponed again and again when Violet is offered a postdoctorate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
The plot might sound like dozens of stereotypical rom-coms, but here are five reasons "The Five-Year Engagement" could be this year's "Bridesmaids." Get More »
