DADDY’S HOME 2 – ONCE WAS ENOUGH

Sorry to say Daddy’s Home 2 is nowhere as entertaining as the first one – and the first one was merely tolerable. The idea of dad vs stepdad was interesting the first time around, despite the lack of subtlety and overacting by Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. The second movie is like the first, but on STEROIDS. Bigger budget, worse script, cornier acting, and more special effects. Will Ferrell falls down a lot, but never gets hurt. Mel Gibson’s stereotypical character was a poorly written obnoxious bully – not a good comeback. Mark Wahlberg looked appropriately embarrassed much of the time – so did the audience…

“DADDY’S HOME” IS SMARTER AND FUNNIER THAN “SISTERS”

Daddys-Home-new-pos#2Ccut

Wanna take a break from the holidays and have a few laughs this week? Head to your local movie theater and see “Daddy’s Home.” We hate to admit it, but Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg’s comedy leaves Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s “Sisters” movie in the dust. It’s not that Tina and Amy aren’t as funny – they just have a lame script to work with. Surprisingly, Will and Mark’s movie is not only entertaining, but suitable for kids. Translation: it’s less vulgar than “Sisters.”

WILL FERRELL AND KEVIN HART MIGHT BE THE PERFECT COMEDY TEAM

AG065396_01hartcut
If Kevin Hart would be a little more careful about who he stands next to in photos, it might not be so glaringly apparent that he is uncommonly short. But then, his challenging height is probably one of the reasons he’s funny. Kevin, who claims to be 5’4”, costars with 6’3” Will Ferrell in “Get Hard.” Will plays a prison-bound hedge fund manager who asks Kevin’s businessman character (who has never been in jail) to prepare him for life behind bars. A few descriptive terms tossed around are racist, homophobic, and raunchy. Sounds like Will and Kevin’s fans will be happy.

ROBIN THICKE AND WILL FERRELL – MORE RICH PEOPLE ASKING FOR MONEY

Now, this is getting out of hand. According to Page Six, Robin Thicke and Will Ferrell are appealing to the public to help them raise $100,000 so they can make a music video of a song they did together for “Anchorman 2.” That’s what it will cost for both guys to clear their schedules and fly to the same location to film. Do these two busy celebrities really expect fans to pool their money and finance the project? It’s difficult to muster up any financial sympathy for a pair of multimillionaires, but never underestimate the foolish generosity of die-hard fans.

ANCHORMAN RON BURGUNDY IS IN HIS GLORY IN NEW YORK CITY

“Anchorman: The Legend Continues” follows 1970’s newscaster Ron Burgundy’s move from San Diego to New York but little else is known about the story. Will Ferrell is writing the script and he’s sometimes funny, but often a big disappointment like Adam Sandler. At least you can count on the visuals to be very amusing – this had to have been the worst decade for men’s fashion – afros, mustaches, big glasses and wide lapels. Plus the movie has an impressive number of A-list cameos. Above, Paul Rudd, Will Ferrell, David Koechner, and Steve Carell cross the street in Manhattan in all their finery.

THE OTHER GUYS: WILL FERRELL’S REDEMPTION

Will Ferrell can breathe a big sigh of relief because “The Others Guys” is set to be number one at the boxoffice this weekend. Opening day was 13.2 million and that’s expected to reach over 35 million by Monday. Will had a lot to lose because his last movie “Land of the Lost” (a real stinker) was a monumental flop. Salary negotiations for his upcoming films depended on how “The Other Guys” fared this weekend. Now his CAA agents can demand top dollar for Will again. Insiders agree that the fact that Will and Mark Wahlberg went all over the country to promote the movie made a big difference. They even had an online contest and the Galaxy theater in Chesterfield, Missouri won the honor of having a second red carpet premier of the film with the stars in attendance. (photo above)

SACHA BARON COHEN AS SHERLOCK HOLMES: IT'S ELEMENTARY

basil%20sherlock.jpg
willcut%20sacha
If they were still alive, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, who played the original Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, might be surprised and delighted at the actors selected to reprise those roles today. “Knocked Up “ producer Judd Apatow has cast Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat) as Holmes, and Will Ferrell as Dr Watson in his new comedy. The pair met when they costarred in “Talladega Nights.” We predict Sacha will be delicious as the showy detective who was a master of disguise and deductive reasoning, as well as an occasional coke-head. And if Will can muster up an English accent he should be fun as the fussy, protective, right hand man Watson.

WHO WILL BE STANDING IN LINE TO SEE WILL FERRELL'S SEMI-PRO THIS WEEKEND?

willcutheidi.jpg
Will we be the only people NOT rushing out to see Will Ferrell’s new comedy Semi-Pro when it opens this weekend? We’ve been bombarded with publicity for this sports comedy and have to admit some of Will’s 70’s outfits ARE amusing. (That’s him above with Heidi Klum in a Farrah hair-do) But the ad campaign is such a turn-off, it just makes us want to run the other way. Does anybody else feel like this or do you predict the movie will be a big hit?

Happy New Year

2007 seems to off to a good start with Will Ferrell and his wife taking home a baby boy, Swchartzenegger out of the hospital, and generous Oprah opening an academy for girls in South Africa. It can’t all be Paris falling down the stairs, right?

Just Dad

Here’s some insight into Will Ferrell from 2004: He may be a bigshot in Hollywood but on weekends he’s just a dad. Will’s wife Viv is an auctioneer and recently she presided over the ultracool LA Modern Auction in Santa Monica. Sitting among the hipsters and serious vintage collectors bidding on Eames and Panton furniture was Will – with his four month old baby Magnus on his lap. The Blades of Glory star wasn’t there to buy – he was just happily watching his wife work. And halfway through the event Will had to take a break in the parking lot to change Magnus’s diaper. Looks like a metrosexual to us.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
