Today in Spectacular Anti-Hilarity
It’s a slow night for movie news folks, at least good movie news. But that won’t stop me from trying to cut into your viewings of “30 Rock” and “The Office” to present 55 seconds of pure, unadulterated hell.
I speak of a new clip from the upcoming Jack Black and the Emo Muppet comedy, Year One. Now, you’d imagine that, were a movie studio to release 55 seconds of uncut footage from its movie, that they’d probably want to go with a funny clip, right? Unfortunately, from the looks of this clip, Year One has one less funny part than I do.
Trailer Addict: Congrats on scoring the exclusive on this. It’s a shame it’s no goddamn good. Take a gander at the Jackal dance:
One of the summer’s other highly anticipated comedies is Sacha Cohen Baron’s follow-up to Borat, Bruno. It’s pretty much the same movie, only Bruno is prettier. And gay. And just these still images, alone, are enough to make me kind of sick of it already. Why do I get the sinking feeling that Sacha Cohen Baron is of the Mike Meyer’s school of acting: EVERYTHING IS FUNNIER WITH AN ACCENT.
