The last time Aubrey Plaza and Zac Efron got crazy together, it was with Robert De Niro in the dreadful Dirty Grandpa. However, in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, they have Workaholics star Adam DeVine and Pitch Perfect leading lady Anna Kendrick to help out. Plus, it helps that the script comes from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the scribes behind the hit comedy Neighbors and the sequel coming this summer.
A new Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates red band trailer has arrived, featuring Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza scamming the hell out of our title characters, who are desperate for some respectable ladies for their sister’s wedding. This actually doesn’t look half bad. Watch the new trailer below. Read More »

One of the recurring themes of 2016 is going to be Zac Efron, comedy star. The High School Musical alum has not one, not two, but three separate comedies coming out this year. The first, Dirty Grandpa, has already come and gone, and this summer brings Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.
Efron leads the latter as the titular Dave, while Adam DeVine plays Mike. As the title suggests, the Stangle brothers need wedding dates. Their hard-partying ways have ruined every family gathering, and their dad (Stephen Root) figures a couple of sweet girls will help keep them in line at their sister’s wedding. They end up with Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Anna Kendrick), who turn out to be much, much more than they bargained for. Watch the first Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates trailer after the jump.

A film with Anton Yelchin, Zooey Deschanel, Aubrey Plaza, John Hawkes, Frank Langella, Alia Shawkat, and Ciarán Hinds shouldn’t be flying so far under the radar. The Driftless Area premiered last spring at the Tribecca Film Festival, where it was met with mixed reviews. Based on the trailer for the surreal crime love story, it’s easy to see why.

Old men saying inappropriate things and college girls saying overtly sexual remarks back to them is always hilarious, right? That’s what Lionsgate seems to think with the Dirty Grandpa red-band trailer, which shows off the R-rated side of this road trip comedy.
Zac Efron is about to get married, but since his grandmother just passed away, he’s helping out his grandfather (Robert De Niro) by driving him down to Florida. But what was supposed to be an innocent bonding trip has turned into a spring break of debauchery, as all the old man wants to do is get laid. Sounds like a crack-up, right? Wrong.

Johnny Knoxville already brought us the wild antics of Bad Grandpa with his trusty Jackass crew, preying on the clueless public with hidden cameras and prosthetic genitals. Now Robert De Niro is trying to get in the geriatric tomfoolery game with Dirty Grandpa.
The new raunchy comedy from director Dan Mazer (I Give It a Year) sees the iconic star of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas as the grandfather of Zac Efron, the uptight grandson who is tricked into driving through Daytona Beach during the insanity of spring break. Now the first Dirty Grandpa trailer has arrived, delivering pretty much exactly the kind of debauchery you’d expect. Read More »
Comedians Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel have collaborated with each other countless times, at various venues, in several different mediums. Maybe you’ve seen them on their MTV sketch show Human Giant, in any of the dozen movies and TV shows they’ve appeared in or at the UCB Theatre doing their show Crash Test. If you’ve seen the latter, then you’re going to love this news.
Paramount Digital Entertainment is bringing a new Crash Test comedy special to Vimeo on Demand, and it’s not just a recorded version of one of the shows at the UCB Theatre. Instead, this comedy special was recorded on a moving bus and at various tops that the Crash Test vehicle made in Los Angeles, and there’s a ton of awesome special guests.

When the time came to make my most-anticipated list for 2015, there was no question that Hal Hartley’s new film Ned Rifle would take a spot. Just as Richard Linklater created a surprising and unlikely trilogy of films, here Hartley completes a three-film cycle that follows the story of a garbageman whose profane poetry wins the Nobel prize and changes the world, thanks in part to the influence of a hedonistic novelist. The two previous films, Henry Fool and Fay Grim, create a sort of alternate world defined by absurdist, deadpan humor, odd espionage and literary superstardom.
In the Ned Rifle trailer you’ll see many of those elements at play, along with attempted patricide, hero worship, young love, religion, and James Urbaniak running down everything that makes an audience happy. It’s great! Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
I’ve been way more interested in the Grumpy Cat television movie than I have any right to be. But something about the ridiculousness of the first Internet meme turned movie and the perfect voice casting of Aubrey Plaza has captured my imagination. We posted the Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever trailer last week, and it sadly looked like the quality you’d expect from a Lifetime Network movie — I almost deleted the scheduled recording off my DVR.
But Aubrey Plaza appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and talked about the film, which has prevented any rash DVR decisions on my part. Plaza has me interested in the film again, after claiming the movie will blow people away because it is “the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen”, calling it “so confusing, operating on so many levels of irony that I can’t even tap into them all — and I think Lifetime is only maybe tapped into one level.” Plaza also discussed working with Grumpy Cat and having to deal with her large entourage and management group. Watch Aubrey Plaza’s funny Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance embedded after the jump.
