Way, way back in the 2000s, MTV released Clone High, a hilarious animated series about clones of historical figures all attending the same high school. The series came from creators Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and back then, Lord and Miller weren’t the big names they are today. But now things have changed – Lord and Miller are in high-demand and it looks like they’re using their newfound powers to bring back Clone High. The Clone High reboot will be “re-imagined” by Lord and Miller, along with Clone High co-creator Bill Lawrence.

Not convinced yet? How about this: in the first few minutes of this movie, the speedboat, which is named Lay’N Pipe, has sex with a souped up monster truck and gives birth to a baby speedboat, which has monster truck wheels mounted to its undercarriage. I hope you’re wearing your life preserver, because this movie gets weird. Read More »
