The day that turkeys develop the ability to wield knives, the human race is doomed. World War T?
Who’s next? Barbara Walters?!
What do The Muppets, Ali G and Flight Of The Conchords all have in common? Apart from the occasional bit of humourous racism, we mean? Why the STICKY TOUCH of James Bobin, of course! Co-creator of Sacha Baron Cohen’s most famous character, creative brain behind the Conchords’ TV success and director of The Muppets – how on earth has this bloke stayed under our radar for so long? Probably the racist stuff, to be honest. CHEAT SHEET!
Australian cinema has given us some cult classics over the years, proving that the country’s cinematic output isn’t all Baz Luhrmann. The Castle, now being re-released 15 years after it was made, is perhaps the best of the bunch. Hilarious and touching – just get it, it’s a ripper! (That’s Australian for “good”).
Steve Carell and Paul Rudd don’t so much star as blackhole in Dinner For Schmucks; a deeply unfunny comedy so stupid it makes Kenan And Kel look like The Importance Of Being Earnest. An army of talented cameos only highlight the ludicrous, all-encompassing foulness of this creation, and the only reason it scrapes a half-star is that Flight Of The Conchord’s Jermaine Clement manages to steer clear of the worst bits as a vaguely amusing goat/artist.
