Netflix first announced a Green Eggs and Ham animated series back in 2015, and now, the dream has become a reality. The series will finally arrive this fall, and in anticipation of that, the streaming service has announced the full cast. They’ve also provided some first look images in the form of character posters. The animation looks to be appropriating Dr. Seuss’ famous style, albeit with a glossier finish.

Isn't It Romantic Interview - Todd Strauss-Schulson

Isn’t It Romantic? is in theaters right now. The story follows a New York architect named Natalie (Rebel Wilson) who works hard to get noticed at her job. But more often than not gets relegated to the sidelines, sent out for coffee instead of presenting her big ideas for her firm’s clients. Life takes an odd turn when Natalie gets knocked unconscious and wakes up in her own romantic comedy. It’s both an unsettling nightmare and a hilarious dream.

Director Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, The Final Girls) has created an vibrant romantic comedy world that emulates all of the genre’s tropes. But it’s also a love letter to romcoms, packed with a big beating heart that it wears on its sleeve. In order to bring this cinematic, romantic world to life, the filmmaker immersed himself in dozens of romcoms in the span of two weeks. In fact, he watched every romantic comedy made between 1988 and 2007, and it shows.

We sat down for an interview with Todd Strauss-Schulson where he talked about the extensive preparation for the movie that no one asked him to do. Plus, he discussed attempting to decode the genome of romantic comedies, making a meta comedy without feeling like a spoof, and bringing to life a scene that he’s dreamed about since he was 10 years old.

The Package trailer

When I walked out of Universal’s teen comedy Blockers earlier this year, it seemed clear that actress Geraldine Viswanathan had a bright future. She was one of the funniest performers in a film full of funny people, so I’m glad to already see her popping up in another movie in 2018.

This one is called The Package, a Netflix teen comedy about a group of friends who go camping in the woods during spring break. But they soon realize that they need to save their idiot friend, who has accidentally cut off his own dick. Yep, all of a sudden that title makes sense. Watch The Package trailer below. Read More »

When We First Met Trailer

Plenty of movies take a cue from Groundhog Day and feature a character who gets stuck in some kind of inexplicable time loop. Edge of Tomorrow, Source Code, Run Lola Run, and most recently Happy Death Day have all used the time loop formula to tell a story, and now it’s time for a new romantic comedy to give it a shot.

Netflix has announced a new movie called When We First Met, which finds Adam Devine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) as a guy named Noah who stumbles upon a photo booth time machine that allows him to go back in time in an effort to win over the heart of his best friend Avery (Alexandra Daddario), who is getting married to someone else. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

game over man trailer

Workaholics, the quintessential Comedy Central slacker comedy that helped to launch the careers of Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson, went off the air last year, but its creator-stars will grace our screens once again in a hilariously dumb Netflix action-comedy.

In Game Over, Man! Devine, Holm, and Anderson team up once again — but instead of getting into office-related shenanigans, they’re pitted against bonafide terrorists who threaten a hotel full of hostages, their potential video game benefactor, and worst of all, Jamaican-American musician Shaggy.

Isn't It Romantic Movie

Over in New York City, production has begun on Isn’t It Romantic, a new romantic comedy starring Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine, Liam Hemsworth and Pryianka Chopra. The film is directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (pictured above on set with Rebel Wilson), who brought us the horror comedy The Final Girls, and he’s bringing some of the same meta cinematic style to the table.

Isn’t It Romantic follows Rebel Wilson as Natalie, a New York City architect who works hard to get noticed at her job, but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. Her love life isn’t faring any better as a lifelong relationship cynic, but when an encounter with a mugger knocks her out cold, she wakes up to discover that she’s stuck in the kind of romantic comedy that she hates, and she’s the leading lady.

We asked Todd Strauss-Schulson to tell us why he was drawn to Isn’t It Romantic and why audiences should be excited to see the movie which sounds like a romantic comedy version of The Final Girls. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
