One could argue that Michael Bay and his Transformers franchise have done enough to ruin filmmaking just by existing. But we can badmouth the director and his penchant for big, mindless blockbusters, lingerie models and endless explosions all day long. It doesn’t change the fact that his movies are successful, and he’s a very intense and efficient director, pulling off some impressive work, even if it lacks a substantial story.
But now his Transformers are getting out of control as they’ve started venturing into other movies where they don’t belong. Autobots and Decepticons are ruining scenes from some of your favorite movies, from Inception to Forrest Gump to Jerry Maguire and more. They must be stopped. Watch the Transformers ruin your favorite movies below. Read More »

Recently, I was walking on Hollywood Blvd. and saw the above billboard above the street. It was obviously some kind of joke, but there was no hint at the punchline. We know Brett Ratner has been thinking about Rush Hour 4 for a few years, but not with Sean Combs and Byung-Hun Lee. And what’s the connection to Face/Off? Could this be an ad? A short film? Turns out, it’s a Funny or Die skit.
In Rush Hour 4 Face/Off 2, Combs and Lee are in the Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan roles, but that’s not really the joke. It’s in lots of weird references to Face/Off where this video finds its humor. This is a very odd video. Check it out below. Read More »
If you celebrate the entire Mike Judge catalog like we do, you’re going to want to watch this latest video from the Funny or Die team. They got Michael Bolton – the real Michael Bolton – to reenact scenes from Judge’s comedy Office Space. Of course, in that movie, actor David Herman played a character named “Michael Bolton,” which set the stage for numerous jokes about his name. Many of those you can see here, with the real Bolton awkwardly digitally inserted into the film.
It’s a short, super funny video, mostly because the Office Space scenes are still so great. Check out the Michael Bolton Office Space video below. Read More »
The East Coast of the United States has been stuck in a bit of a deep freeze over the past few weeks. Many inches of snow, subzero temperatures, and no one to blame. Or is there?
In Harlan, Kentucky (not quite the East Coast but still) they’re blaming Queen Elsa of Arendelle, aka the Ice Queen star of Disney’s hit film Frozen. The Harlan City Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for Elsa because of the snow.
In other Frozen-humor news the co-stars of The Duff, Bella Thorne and Mae Whitman, have shared a behind the scenes video from a live-action remake of Frozen, created with the help of Funny or Die. Check out two Frozen jokes below. Read More »

As True Detective zeroes in on a female lead, Funny or Die is here to show HBO what they could do with two female leads. Specifically, two extremely small female leads played by Kate Mara and Ellen Page.
In the True Detective parody Tiny Detectives, Mara and Page prove to be every bit as tough, determined, and grizzled as Rust Cohle and Marty Hart ever were. But they face all sorts of challenges that Cohle and Hart never had to, because they’re just so damn short. Watch Tiny Detectives after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Funny or Die has been sorry a lot lately. Now they’re apologizing for a fake hoverboard video. After the weirdness with Jerry O’Connell a few weeks back, the site has admitted the HUVr viral video released on Tuesday was, indeed, a ruse.
The mythic Back to the Future Part II prop has been on wish lists since 1989 and despite prop replicas and real life scientific attempts, we’re no closer to zipping around in the air like Marty McFly than we were 25 years ago. That didn’t change yesterday, despite a “company” called HUVr releasing videos starring the likes of Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk and Terrell Owens and showing real, working hoverboards.
Had history finally been made? No, it was a prank; now Funny or Die has capped it off with another funny video. Check it out below.

Shia LaBeouf would be proud of Jerry O’Connell. LaBeouf got national press Tuesday for the opening of his contemporary art installation #IAMSORRY. The “show” features LaBeouf in the paper bag he wore to the world premiere of Nymphomaniac in Berlin, sitting quietly while fans talk to him. Wednesday, in the space right next door to LaBeouf’s in West Hollywood, actor Jerry O’Connell set up #IAMSORRYTOO, which featured the Stand By Me, Jerry Maguire and Sliders star in a bag that said “Super Famous,” and willing to talk about damn near anything.

As Breaking Bad sprints toward the finale, the theorizing over how it’s all going to end is only getting more intense. Vince Gilligan and his stars have been dancing around the big spoilers for months now, and at least one is getting tired of keeping all these secrets to himself.
Dean Norris, who plays DEA agent Hank Schrader, has posted a new video on Funny or Die in which he “spoils” the ending of Breaking Bad. Here’s a clue: According to him, it’s titled “Hank Wins” and was written by Norris himself.
Hit the jump to check it out. Ironically, the video doesn’t contain any real spoilers for anything that’s happened so far, so even those of you who are still struggling to catch up can watch with impunity.
