We're all about having a little evening fun here at NextMovie, so long as we're able to get to bed at a reasonable hour. That's not too much to ask, right? We just want to be able to get a little bit of beauty rest before the next day begins.
That's why we have a great deal of respect for the characters of the following nine films - even if, you know, they're in movies and they're not real, and the movies were almost definitely filmed over the course of weeks instead of just one night.
The mustache isn't just facial hair. It's an art form, one few are able to master.
In honor of Movember, we salute some of the finest examples of the mustache in cinema, from Robert Pattinson's bizarre turn as Salvador Dali in "Little Ashes" to Tom Selleck in just about everything. The extreme levels of testosterone may make you feel a little woozy, but that's all part of the awesome.
Browse the most masculine gallery ever and wish you could grow a mustache as mighty.
Andy Warhol famously said, "Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets," but clearly he never saw "Monster's Ball." If uncomfortably awkward love scenes don't bother you, this weekend's indie offerings may be just for you.
Check out "The Sessions," featuring an oft-naked Helen Hunt as a sexual surrogate trying to pleasure a disabled virgin (John Hawkes). And, if that's not enough, there's also "The First Time," which highlights a laughably awful (or realistic, depending on your experience) adolescent deflowering.
From the comedic to the absurd to the downright depressing, here are 12 cringe-inducing sex scenes we've compiled for your viewing (dis)pleasure. Get More »
We met him as epic dork McLovin, but in the five years since "Superbad," Christopher Mintz-Plasse has built an admirably diverse resume, playing a nerdy super-villain ("Kick-Ass"), a nerdy dragon enthusiast ("How To Train Your Dragon"), a nerdy vampire ("Fright Night") and... okay, it's not that diverse. But it's really fun.
With his return to the world of voice acting in stop-motion kids' thriller "ParaNorman," Mintz-Plasse finally throws off the shackles of nerd-dom in his role as dimwitted school bully Alvin. When we spoke during this week's press blitz, we asked how it felt to turn the tables — social-hierarchically speaking — and why certain roles beg for a second life while others should be laid to rest forever.

No, we don't mean it that way! Get your mind out of the gutter, pervs. In honor of the new movie "Savages" (July 6), we're obviously talking about how it seems like the best star vehicles have three wheels.
Occasionally, a fourth wannabe will try to awkwardly insert himself into the ménage à trois (witness poor Ernie Hudson in "Ghostbusters"), but history's proven that a triad has always struck a chord with audiences. So, sticking with that agreed-upon equation, here's a list of nine trios that prove that, as Schoolhouse Rock taught us, three really is a magic number. Get More »
With only a few leading roles under his belt, 27-year-old Jonah Hill has secured his place as one of young Hollywood's top funnymen by crafting characters who are crude, horny yet eerily relatable to most audiences.
His recent move to dramatic fare like “Moneyball” -- and his even more dramatic weight loss -- hasn't robbed him of his comedic talents (see "21 Jump Street" trailer); and with "The Sitter," we see Hill in his usual form. Yes, he shot it before losing the weight, but we mean his knack for being playfully offensive while also portraying a lovable guy next door.
In only six years, Hill has compiled an impressive number of funny moments on screen. Here we take a look at his top nine (warning: some videos are NSFW). Get More »
As we're all aware, Hollywood movies don't just play in U.S. theaters; they get released all over the world. And they make big bucks all over the world, too.
But obviously, the rest of the globe doesn't necessarily speak English, so the titles we're familiar with here get translated abroad. At times, something gets lost in translation. Hilariously so.
Can you guess which movie "If You Leave Me, I Delete You" is? How about "Santa Is a Pervert"? In honor of the Israeli title for "Puss in Boots," i.e., "Shrek's Cat" (ooh, Puss wouldn't like that one), we re-designed posters for 15 twisted title translations that made us laugh in multiple languages.
We at NextMovie don't condone drinking to excess. No sir. Nuh-uh. Alcohol is bad, mmkay?
That said, while watching people get drunk in real life isn't always a barrel of laughs (ever been to a St. Patrick's Day parade?), watching people in movies get drunk can be downright hilarious.
They fall on their faces! They say and do crazy things! (Bless you, Will Ferrell, you are indeed going streaking.) They're far more entertaining -- and infinitely more clever -- than your buddy Joe after he's broken open a bottle of tequila. Get More »
Everyone has their own personal favorite genre, but comedy is arguably the most universal. Have you ever met someone who's said, "I don't like to laugh"? Neither have we.
The past decade has seen filmmakers like Adam McKay and Judd Apatow rise from obscurity onto the A-list, while actors like Seth Rogen and Zach Galifianakis have gone from esoteric television shows to big-budget movies.
But enough talk. Read. Argue. Yell at us. You can debate the order of these films all you want, but you can't deny the humor of any of them. Get More »
Ever since Jonah Hill nailed his breakout role as an under-sexed, alcohol-seeking teenager in the mega-hit comedy "Superbad," he's been a hot commodity in Hollywood, lining up several projects at a time.
Hill recently spoke about his upcoming film "21 Jump Street," a comedic take on the '80s cop show starring Johnny Depp -- and told MTV News he's hoping Depp will make an appearnace.
"It would be awesome if he did it," Hill said, before jokingly addressing Depp. "Just do it, dude. Don't be an a--hole. Just be in the movie."
Check out MTV News to find out what Hill had to say about the rest of his upcoming films.
