I had hoped that we as a society had gotten past the idea that a good movie can be made from a Saturday Night Live sketch. Yes, we have The Blues Brothers and Wayne's World in the plus column, but on the flip side we also have turkeys like Superstar, A Night at the Roxbury, It's Pat and god knows how many others. While there were a few minor laughs in this red band trailer, I'm pretty sure MacGruber, Will Forte's MacGyver parody, will fall into the latter category. We'll find out for sure on April 23.
Comedy drama starring Demi Moore and Parker Posey as sisters who must care for their father (Rip Torn) now that his health has taken a turn for the worse. This one is from the director of Teeth. Posey is worth seeing in just about anything and the rest of the cast is pretty good too. This will be out sometime in February.
No, this is not the long-awaited Miley Cyrus biopic. John C. Reilly plays a man who has finally found true love in a woman played by Marisa Tomei. The conflict comes in the form of her creepy son played by Jonah Hill. Looks like this could be pretty funny. No release date yet.
