There’s no denying that the ‘size zero’ culture has taken over the entertainment industry, and there is now an increasingly huge amount of pressure on film and TV stars to conform to Hollywood’s idea of perfection. But that idea is changing all the time – skinny was in, then curvy was in and now they just can’t make up their minds.
Jack Black is attempting a serious role?! About time.
Development of an Arrested Development movie is no longer… arrested! Michael Cera – presumably bored and/or racked with shame from appearing in several cackhanded comedies over the last year – has revealed to stateside magazine US Weekly that he’s been on board to appear in the planned movie.
Jack Black and Michael Cera go through the motions in this pre-historic comedy. The touch of producer Judd Apatow is clear to see, but sadly this film lacks the magic of his classics such as The 40 Year Old Virgin or Knocked Up. Instead, we are treated to an hour and a half of poo jokes, Jack Black’s comedy faces and a rambling trip around the bible. We deserve better than this.
