It’s a rare treat when the Screen Junkies team does an Honest Trailer for one movie let alone four. But their latest honest trailer is for Pirates of the Caribbean and they don’t just stick to the first film or trilogy. They go all the way up to On Stranger Tides, the billion dollar success no one remembers a single thing about.
Besides the sheer volume of films skewered here, the Pirates of the Caribbean Honest Trailer does a great job poking fun at the insane notion that pirates – one of history’s most violent and terrible groups – could be Disneyfied. My favorite bit is probably where they trailer shows that death is literally impossible in these movies as men are stabbed, shot and worse, and never ever die.
Check out the Pirates of the Caribbean Honest Trailer below. Read More »

PBS has announced everyone’s favorite blue…thing, will star in his own special called The Cookie Thief, co-starring Rachel Dratch. Read more about the Cookie Monster special below. Read More »
Paddington is a PG-rated family film about a talking bear who moves from the jungles of Peru to London. That premise, based on a popular series of children’s book by Michael Bond, is obviously silly. Yet writer director Paul King‘s adaptation is so on the money, so well-done, so deceptively simple, heartfelt and flat-out entertaining, it make movies with far more plausible plots seem silly by comparison.
Below read the rest of our Paddington movie review, which talks about what the movie does right that others should take note of. Read More »
If you grew up in the Eighties, Chris Columbus‘ 1987 comedy Adventures in Babysitting was one of your go-to films. It starred Elizabeth Shue as a babysitter who winds up getting into some crazy situations with three kids she’s supposed to be babysitting. The film did okay at the box office upon release but became a staple of sleepovers, parties, and TV viewing after that. For many, it’s one of the definitive kid adventure films of the Eighties.
Rumblings of a remake of the film has been around for the better part of the decade. On this very site, Peter got very, very mad about Raven Symone potentially starring in a film called Further Adventures in Babysitting back in 2007. Well, Raven has aged out of it but the idea stays the same and now that movie is actually happening. Disney has announced Further Adventures in Babysitting, an Adventures in Babysitting remake, will be coming soon to Disney Channel. Read More »
