Surprise Hit 'We're the Millers' Is Getting a Sequel

The comedy We're the Millers was a surprise hit when it was released last summer, and now, it's being turned into a franchise. THR reports that a We're the Millers sequel is in the works, with the movie's four stars – Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Will Poulter, and Emma Roberts – expected to return although no deals are in place. The original's director, Rawson Marshall Thurber, is also returning, while a new writer, Adam Sztykiel (Due Date, NBC's upcoming midseason sitcom Undateable), is being brought on.

The first movie starred Sudeikis as an experienced pot dealer who hires Aniston, Poulter, and Roberts's characters to be his fake family so [...]

Watch Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston in the Trailer for 'We're the Millers'

Here's the trailer for the new Jason Sudeikis/Jennifer Aniston drug smuggling comedy We're the Millers that sees them playing a pot dealer and a stripper who pose as a family with two fake kids to sneak a bunch of marijuana over the border. Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball), the movie also stars Ed Helms, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Tom Lennon, and Ken Marino, which is a better cast than any drug smuggling comedy I've ever heard of.

Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston May Play a Weed Dealer and His Hooker Fake-Wife in We're the Millers

We're the Millers, a comedy about "pot dealer who pulls together a fake wife and two kids to pose as an RV road-tripping family so that he can smuggle 1000 pounds of pot cross country," may finally be getting its leads: Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston. The movie, written by Wedding Crashers writers Bob Fisher and Steve Faber, initially had Steve Buscemi attached as the lead way back in 2010, but I'm also into the idea of this pairing. Sudeikis as a dirtbag weed dealer driving cross-country in an RV? Yeah, I'm on board.

Horrible Bosses Review Round-Up: Like 9-To-5, But With Even More Golden Shower Jokes

Adam, don't read this post! Okay,  guys, just let me know if anyone wants to go see Horrible Bosses with me; I'm hoping it'll have some good tips. Good MURDER tips.  The Horrible Bosses reviews are in, and in addition to being mostly positive, many of them are just bulging with the repulsive overuse of the word "naughty." Writes Roger Ebert, "Horrible Bosses is funny and dirty in about that order," adding that "[Kevin] Spacey is superb, but the surprise for many may be Jennifer Aniston. Her career has drifted into such shallows that it's possible to forget how good she was in a film like The [...]

Jennifer Aniston Turned Down SNL for Friends

Did you know that, before joining the cast of Friends, Jennifer Aniston was offered a spot on the cast of SNL? Adam Sandler told Oprah yesterday that he had recommended Aniston for the role: "I remember being on the ninth floor where Lorne Michaels' office was, and seeing Jen come in," Sandler recalled. "I was like, 'Oh, my God. There's Aniston. Is she about to be on our show?'"

Aniston said she turned down the offer because the show was "a boys' club. They thought I was making a huge mistake."

Instead, Aniston signed on for the hit NBC sitcom Friends, she said, and "did alright."

Joked Sandler, [...]

Jennifer Aniston in Talks to Star in 'Mean Girls'-Esque Movie 'Mean Moms'

Jennifer Aniston is "in early talks" to star in Mean Moms, a Mean Girls-esque big-screen comedy being directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller, who served as SNL's in-house director from 1995-2006, Variety reports. Although the comedy is not a sequel to Mean Girls, it's based on the same set of advice books for parents by Rosalind Wiseman. The plot follows a mother of two who moves to the upscale suburbs and meets a bunch of very competitive parents, and the studio is expected to be looking for big names to round out the all-female cast. The project, originally announced last summer, will mark the feature directorial debut of McCarthy-Miller, who, in [...]

Jennifer Aniston has joined the cast of a new comedy called She's Funny That Way from veteran director Peter Bogdanovich, Variety reports.

They should change its name back to that in addition to changing [...]

The Red Band Trailer for Wanderlust is Heavy on the "Lust"

The red band Wanderlust trailer is out, now with 100% more Joe Lo Truglio butt, goat-milking ejaculation analogies, and Paul Rudd giving himself a sex pep talk in the mirror. Whew. That's a lotta red band material. Hope they left some surprises for next Friday when the full movie comes out in theaters. Until then, let's all drink some strong tea with hallucinogenic properties and sit by the fire to wait.

First Horrible Bosses Trailer: The Wackiest Murder Fantasy Ever

Here's the first trailer for Horrible Bosses, the new comedy that features Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis scheming to kill their three god-awful bosses, played by Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston and Colin Ferrell in a pretty sweet bald/combover cap. Looks pretty good, if just for the scene in which Charlie is trying to pick up $15,000 worth of cocaine off a rug while high on cocaine. It hits theaters on July 8th. [via]

A Tale of Two Adam Sandlers

Here's the first trailer for Just Go With It, a new romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Brooklyn Decker. This is the second of two upcoming Sandler movies we know about, and they seem pretty different. But really, aren't they pretty solid representations of the two types of movies Sandler is up for these days?

The Complete Guide to Everything: Modern Art

This week we’re talking about something neither of us is qualified to talk about in anyway whatsoever: Modern Art! But before the conversation gets all hoity-toity we discuss Tom’s love of summertime and seasonal beers. We also discuss the merits of possibly just putting MSG on all the food you eat to make it delicious and Tom recounts the time he ruined a turf soccer field by bleeding all over it.

As far as artists are concerned, we cover everyone from Banksy to Hanksy, making stops in between to discuss graffiti as an art form, adults who skateboard, Miley Cyrus, @Horse_ebooks, Sting’s real meaning behind The Police’s ‘The Bed’s [...]

Wanderlust Trailer Plays Like a Beautiful Wet Hot/State Reunion

The trailer for Wanderlust is out and it features (in addition to stars Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston) Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenny-Silver, Kathryn Hahn, Justin Theroux and Alan Alda, all of them directed by David Wain. The whole thing looks kind of like a hippie-er version of Wet Hot American Summer, but co-produced by Judd Apatow. Who else watched this and now wants to immediately move to a commune with me?
