We’ve all chuckled when a terrible movie throws out a line of dialogue that seems to sum up our own dismissal of the film perfectly. That idea is the inspiration for a video that uses dialogue from some of the worst films of 2014 to review the films themselves.
While there’s a movie or two in here that might not quite be among the year’s worst (Monuments Men is too optimistic to really hate, I’d argue, even if it does squander a great cast and premise) there’s nothing quite as apt as seeing dialogue from A Million Ways to Die in the West, Dracula Unbound and, yeah, Winter’s Tale (above) repurposed to talk about the films themselves.

Facing the vengeance of not one, not two, but three women scorned would probably be pretty rough on most men. But after everything Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has been through as Jaime Lannister on this past season of Game of Thrones, some hormonal sabotage, a bit of professional betrayal, and a swift kick to the balls should seem like a walk in the park.
The Other Woman stars Coster-Waldau as a charmer with an oblivious wife (Leslie Mann) and at least two equally uninformed mistresses (Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton). But when the three ladies catch wind of what’s going on, they decide to team up to exact their revenge on him. Nicki Minaj and Taylor Kinney also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

IFC Films has released the movie trailer for The Other Woman, a film adaptation of Ayelet Waldman‘s novel “Love and Other Impossible Pursuits”. The comedy/drama stars Natalie Portman and “details the story of a woman’s difficult relationship with her stepson.” The film co-stars Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Daisy Tahan (13, Nurse Jackie) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under). Directed and adapted by Don Roos, writer/director of two underrated movies Bounce and Happy Endings, and the man who wrote the screenplay adaptation of Marley & Me.
I find it slightly suspicious that both the poster and trailer were released on the same day it was revealed publicly that Portman is pregnant and engaged to Benjamin Millepied, who served as choreographer on Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan and was Portman’s dance partner in the film. Almost seems like this indie film was trying to latch on to the gossipy news break. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and was met with slightly positive reviews. It was only recently revealed that IFC Films will release the film in limited theaters on February 4th 2011, following a Video On Demand debut on January 1st 2011.
Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

There’s all sorts of Natalie Portman gossip news today. She’s engaged! She’s pregnant! But let’s leave the details of that stuff to others, and focus on her work. With some of her best acting yet currently being seen in Black Swan, there may be more interest in Portman than ever — hence her appearance on a couple dozen casting shortlists over the past three months.
In 2011 she’s got Your Highness, Thor and No Strings Attached set for release. But before those three will be The Other Woman, formerly called Love and Other Impossible Pursuits. The film hits On Demand on January 1 and theaters February 4. The new poster is after the break. Read More »
