RED BAND TRAILER: BAD WORDS Directed by & Starring Jason Bateman

“BAD WORDS” Red Band Trailer is disgusting & offends to no end.  The callus remarks made in this movie trailer make us all sit back & wonder, ‘When did we as a society become so disgusting?’  It comes out in theaters March 14th.  I, for one cannot wait. It’s got a real Bad Santa vibe.  All my friends know I love Bad Santa.  When it comes to really smart comedy, no one delivers a line better than Jason Bateman. It’s great to see him sitting in the director’s chair.  This should one very funny movie to watch out for in the new year.  Follow me on Twitter @MovieInterview.

The Change Up Movie Review

With all that’s going on in the world today, why not laugh it up!?!  The Change Up is that movie.  The premise is a retread. Two people switching bodies.  I know lots of people are overly critical.  If they had things their way, there would be no more Cop movies, buddy movies, romantic comedies, westerns, etc. It’s been done before. I say, so what!

Ryan Reynolds plays a slacker named Mitch.  A bachelor who engages in sex, lots of it.  Mitch likes it weird & he likes it often.  His post 2am booty calls are just the most vicious passion clashes imaginable. Basically, he’s a stoner with a boner.  His married buddy Dave (Jason Bateman) is just that: Married.  He’s a workaholic lawyer who’s got a wife & three young kids.  The youngest two need to get fed & changed in the middle of the night.  These daddy/kiddie exchanges are worth the price of admission alone.

One night, the guys hit a local bar & relive glory days with a few too many shots. While relieving themselves in a fountain, they blurt out, “I wish I had your life.”  Voila!  The next day, the pair have permeated each other’s body.   Mitch, in Dave’s body becomes a responsible lawyer & Diaper Guy in the middle of the night.  Friggin’ hilarious.

Dave is now sporting Mitch’s body.  Instead of changing diapers in the middle of the night, he’ll most likely be changing condoms.  Yeohhhh! You won’t believe Mitch’s day job & what Dave has to do to keep his boss happy. No spoilers here. Dave’s legal assistant, Sabrina (Olivia Wilde) adds a real layer of sexiness.  As shown in the trailer, she goes out with Mitch’s exterior, but it’s Dave on the inside.  Y’see Dave, always admired Sabrina, in a “You’re-so-scorching-hot-keep-I’m-gonna-keep-my-distance-because-I’m-married” kinda way.

The Change Up is the perfect movie to disconnect & enjoy.  Is it Midnight In Paris?  Not by a longshot & it doesn’t want to be.  I thought Midnight In Paris was terrific.  But, so is this. It’s a sometimes childish, always raunchy Rated R comedy that doesn’t apologize for what it is.  Loosen your tie, drink an ice coldy & laugh it up. It’s just a movie.

Since Mitch dates a lot on a budget, he needs to save money on movies.  That’s why he’s got the Film Freak iPhone app.  Just search Film Freak.

Horrible Bosses Movie Review

Here’s what I’m diggin’ about “Horrible Bosses.”  It’s true to itself.  Do the math. Three guys, one problem: They hate their bosses.  Dale (Charlie Day) is ridden by his horny, dentist horrible boss, Julia (Jennifer Aniston). Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) takes lumps from his heir, horrible boss, Bobby (Colin Farrell) & Nick (Jason Bateman) has served eight years jumping hurdles for his hideous, horrible boss, Dave (Kevin Spacey).

When the work place becomes too much to bare, these dimwits decide to take drastic measures.  Things unfold, but the jokes aren’t obvious.  They’re like slithering snakes in the grass, waiting & all of a sudden they strike!  It happened quite a lot. Lots of laughs.

I’m 100% done with supposed comedies that are really funny in the 2-minute trailer. Y’know the ones.  Where you find yourself in the theater gasping for any laugh that wasn’t already shown in the previews.

“Horrible Bosses” delivers good old-fashion fun at the movies.  For me, standout performances came from Kevin Spacey & Jason Sudeikis.  For the record, there’s no Jennifer Aniston topless scene.  Hey, don’t shoot the messenger.

If your Horrible Boss hasn’t given you the raise you deserve, never fear.  The Film Freak iPhone – iPad App is here.  Money’s tight & this is the movie app that saves you money on movies. Just go to the App Store & search: Film Freak
