Vince Vaughn used to be a comedy god- up there with Ben Stiller, more marketable than Will Ferrell, less cheesy than Owen Wilson. But lately, we have realised that he is less comedy hits, more comedy misses and much less likeable on screen. Whatever has happened to everyone’s favourite funny man? We look at the rise and oh so calamitous fall of this fast talking, wedding crashing comedy supremo.
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!
Everybody knows Christmas is a time for cinema, but this year there aren’t many fresh festive treats being served up. So in the spirit of charity and knowing what it’s like not to want to talk to your family, we’ve scoured the charts for December and found the films most likely to placate your clan for most of the festive season. Did someone say ‘eye-popping CGI and childish plotlines’?
OK, we admit, news is fairly thin on the ground today, but for those who thought Meet The Fockers was just freaking hilarious and not at all crap and tired, good news! There’s a trailer out for the even more funny and not at all tired and crap sequel: Little Fockers! Fockers, do you get it? Yeah, cos… oh you remember that joke from the first two films? Oh yeah.
Now we here at bestforfilm are all a bit partial to a bit of Adam Sandler (some more begrudgingly than others). Yes, he finds himself perpetually playing the same zero-to-hero role, but if it the down-on-his-luck-loser-inevitably-finds-success-and-the-girl formula ain’t broke then why fix it? (And truth be told, the less said about Señor Sandler trying to break out of his mould, cough Punch Drunk Love, the better.)
Crimety, people are getting banned from the cinematic event of the year left, right and centre. First a Hurt Locker producer is dis-invited for vote-mongering, and now it seems like Sacha Baron Cohen has been given his marching orders too. At least they have each other.
