Every now and then I do a Games You Should Play or Movies You Should Watch feature. Now I’ve decided to make a small twist and make a list of 6 Movies You Should Avoid At All Cost.
The reason for this is not that you should stop going to the movies, it’s just that it looks like there are so many bad movies being released in the next few weeks and months it’s almost depressing for movie lovers like myself. For some reason, they are all comedies. Maybe it’s just me that has run out of a sense of humor?
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (Trailer)
Synposis: From the producers of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up comes a comic look at one guy’s arduous quest to grow up and get over the heartbreak of being dumped—if he can only make himself start Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Struggling musician Peter Bretter (Jason Segel, Knocked Up, How I Met Your Mother) has spent six years idolizing his girlfriend, television star Sarah Marshall (Kristen Bell, Veronica Mars). He’s the guy left holding her purse in paparazzi photos and accidentally omitted from acceptance award speeches. But his world is rocked when she dumps him and Peter finds himself alone. After an unsuccessful bout of womanizing and an on-the-job nervous breakdown, he sees that not having Sarah may just ruin his life. To clear his head, Peter takes an impulsive trip to Oahu, where he is confronted by his worst nightmare: his ex and her tragically hip new British-rocker boyfriend, Aldous (Russell Brand), are sharing his hotel.
The Hottie and the Nottie (Trailer)
Synposis: Nate Cooper (Joel David Moore) has been smitten with Cristabel Abbott (Paris Hilton) since he first laid eyes on her at the impressionable age of six. But before he could try and snuggle up to her at nap time, or maybe send her a valentine, his family moved away. In the intervening years there have been other women in Nate’s life, but none who could measure up to Cristabel. Convinced she’s the only girl for him, Nate decides to move back to L.A. and track her down. The good news: she’s still single and stunning. The bad news: there’s a reason she’s still single. Cristabel’s still best friends with the same ugly little girl Nate remembers from first grade, JUNE PHIGG (Christine Lakin).
Synposis: A religious charlatan (Foley), his mild mannered nephew (Ward) and a gang of bosomy commandos face off against Osama bin Laden and the Taliban in an epic battle that will determine the fate of the world in POSTAL, the latest film from controversial director Uwe Boll (“BloodRayne”). Boll roasts an entire herd of sacred cows and smashes taboos to smithereens in this over-the-top and hilariously subversive critique of modern day America. Inspired by the notorious videogame of the same name, POSTAL is a jaw-droppingly original spoof of contemporary culture and an equal opportunity offender, lampooning religious extremists, minorities, bureaucrats, immigrants, cops, women, the Holocaust, gun nuts and more with evenhanded abandon.
You Don’t Mess With Zohan (Trailer)
Synposis: In You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, a comedy from screenwriters Adam Sandler, Robert Smigel (Triumph the Insult Comic Dog), and Judd Apatow (Knocked Up), Sandler stars as Zohan, an Israeli commando who fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream: becoming a hairstylist in New York. Dennis Dugan directs.
College Road Trip (Trailer)
Synposis: Choosing which college to attend can be the most exciting and thrilling time of a young woman’s life…unless your overprotective father isn’t quite ready to let you go. In the Disney family comedy, COLLEGE ROAD TRIP, Melanie (RAVEN-SYMONÉ) is eagerly looking forward to her first big step towards independence when she plans a “girls only” road trip to check out prospective universities. But when her overbearing police chief father (MARTIN LAWRENCE) insists on escorting her instead, she soon finds her dream trip has turned into a hilarious nightmare adventure full of comical misfortune and turmoil.
Trailer Park Boys (Trailer)
Synposis: Widely regarded as one of Canada’s greatest comedy shows to hit the airwaves, Trailer Park Boys is now launching in the U.S. with, TRAILER PARK BOYS: THE MOVIE, produced by Hollywood comedy maestro Ivan Reitman. For seven years Julian, Ricky and Bubbles have been entertaining fans across Canada as the Trailer Park Boys in the irreverent TV smash hit centered around a group of trailer park residents living in the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park. The film finds pals Julian and Ricky serving an 18 month jail sentence for ATM robbery. Upon their release, they return to Sunnyvale trailer park to plan for the largest heist of their long, unsuccessful criminal careers-The Big Dirty, a scheme to steal vast quantities of untraceable change. But before their plan can succeed, they will have to outrun helicopters, survive shootouts, and face down drunken Trailer Park management in a deadly game of Sunnyvale Chicken.
