Did you hear that The Inbetweeners is getting a sequel, despite the boys saying that making a second movie would kill the franchise? We wonder what changed their minds? Could it be that they found a unique and different story to tell us about Jay, Will, Simon and Neil? No. It’s because they know it’ll make them a LOT of money and they want to milk this cash cow for all it’s worth. To celebrate this money-grabbing attitude, here are our top ten cash cows of cinema…
It can’t possibly be because of the latest Meet The Parents movie, can it?
Big Momma is back for a third joyless excursion into ‘let’s-all-laugh-at-the-silly-black-woman-because-it-doesn’t-count-as-racism’ territory, which now features a second ridiculous fat-suited goon – now with extra rapping!. I hope Martin Lawrence spends his evenings thinking about how he’d be more use to humanity as fertiliser, sobbing onto his immorally inflated bank statements.
Like watching a rhino bathe in pure, unadulterated Jack Daniels, it’s heartbreaking to see such delicious potential go to waste. Little Fockers attempts to shake the final dregs of comedy from its dried-up franchise, but its brief moments of light only serve to make us long for the days when its actors had material worth their while.
Back again for more incredibly annoying characters – here are the people you wish you could reach through the screen and slap in Top Twenty Most Irritating Movie Characters of All Time Part 2!
You know the kind of movie characters that just get on your nerve so badly, you spend a large part of the film wanting to throw acid/lava all over their possibly smirking faces? Well to clarify exactly who deserves that fate, here are the Top Twenty Most Irritating Movie Characters of All Time Part 1!
John C Reilly and Jonah Hill plod happily through comedy/drama Cyrus; it’s just such a shame that their material never quite matches their obvious talent. Though a few moments of great dark humour lift the storyline, dreadful camera work and a lack-lustre ending drag Cyrus’s high flying stars down almost to amateur level.
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.
