The actress and filmmakers, who previously collaborated on last year’s gripping horror crime drama, ‘American Mary,’ reunited to once again prove that when a compelling and dynamic female character sets out to  [ Read More ]

Anna Kendrick could be joining Ben Affleck in the Gavin O’Connor directed thriller ‘The Accountant’. As reported by Variety, Kendrick is in early negotiations alongside J.K. Simmons to star in the film set to chronicle Affleck in the role of a “mild-mannered” accountant by day, who turns into a lethal assassin by night.

Dumb and Dumber To Movie Review

Title: Dumb and Dumber To Director: Bobby Farrelly & Peter Farrelly Starring: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Kathless Turner, Rob Riggle, Laurie Holden, Rachel Melvin, Steve Tom, Don Lake, Patricia French. Dumb and Dumber Two or Dumb and Dumber Too? Either way the intentional typo reiterates the stupidity of our protagonists who are back after two decades. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels have aged badly but more than their farcical out of date “dumb play,” the true problem of ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ lies in the script, drenched with language and coarsely vulgar gags. Twenty years since Dumb and Dumber’s first adventure, Harry finds out he has a daughter who was  [ Read More ]
