Review: Super Troopers 2

It's been 16 years since Broken Lizard exploded onto the scene with their stoner-comedy Super Troopers. Ever since then, they have had ups and downs in terms of their movies but for the most part, their comedy has always tickled me in jus...

Zac Efron is magical in first look images from The Beach Bum

What can be said about The Beach Bum that these first look pictures of Zac Efron can't beat? It's written and being directed by Harmony Korine, the one responsible fro writing cult Kids, as well as writing and directing Spring Breakers...

Super Troopers 2 gets a new red band trailer

The original Super Troopers remains one of my favorite comedies of all time. It strikes a perfect chord of raunchy, slapstick, and joke-driven comedy that still makes me laugh until I hurt even after watching it multiple times over the y...

Super Troopers 2 gets baked, and trailer!

Super Troopers the original was left in a basket on our doorsteps all the way back in 2002. Probably around the same time some of you were delivered to your parents by giant, lice-ridden birds. In other words, it's been a while. But&nb...

Review: Sausage Party

Do I want to start eating dirt? Perhaps, as an individual who already entertains questions on whether or not I’m morally comfortable (in spite of a true appreciation for) eating meat, I should have more deeply considered whether or no...

 
 
Neighbors 2 Review photo

Review: Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

In my long tenure here at Flixist I've carved out a niche for myself. If you see a review for a Seth Rogen film or a sequel to a comedy, chances are it's my words you're reading. So little did I know I'd stick around here long enough for th...

 
 
 
Night Before Review photo

Review: The Night Before

When Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produce a film, you pretty much know what you're going to get. As the duo have made their way through the romantic comedy, high school buddy film, stoner comedy, old Hollywood existential, superhero story, ...

 
 
Ted 2 Review photo

Review: Ted 2

Say what you will about Seth MacFarlane, but the man knows how to stay in business. Despite many critics noting a decline in all of his television programs and his last effort A Million Ways to Die in the West died a million ways in the box...

 
 
The Interview Review photo

Review: The Interview

After a crazy couple of weeks of Sony hacks, full on terrorist attack threats, cancellations, and a last minute reneging, I sort of forgot that at the center of all this mess was a comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. Under normal c...

First Red Band trailer for The Interview has some jokes

After watching this latest Red Band trailer for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's latest film, The Interview, I think I'm okay with its push from October to December. There are some good jokes here as the trailer reveals more of the plot, but...

 
 
A Million Ways Review photo

Review: A Million Ways to Die in the West

Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut, Ted, was a welcome surprise. It was a mix of a charming friendship, un-ironic love of the 80s, and gratuitous amount of raunchy humor. Like the best episodes of MacFarlane's Family Guy, it managed a fine...

 
 
Neighbors Review photo

Review: Neighbors

I had completely written off Neighbors. Coming off of Seth Rogen's last starring role in This is the End, the first trailer for Neighbors underwhelmed me. I've gotten used to Rogen acting, writing, and directing his own films so I was a lit...

Nick's Flixmas: A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas

Harold & Kumar? You mean to tell me a stoner comedy threequel is part of the Nick's Flixmas lineup? And it's part of the Twelve Days of Flixmas (the twelve best Christmas films ever)? Why yes because I just think it's that entertaining....

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 gets a 2014 release date

While Hot Tub Time Machine may have not been the best comedy, it performed well enough on home video to warrant a sequel. Production on the sequel began last Summer with John Cusack dropping out and Adam Scott filling in as Cusack's son. Sp...

 
 
This is the End photo

This is the End getting re-released in theaters soon

This is the End was the best film of the Summer hands down (Fast & Furious 6 notwithstanding). It brought the biggest surprises, biggest laughs, and most memorable moments (that finale had to be the greatest thing I've seen in years). S...

Flix for Short: The Real World: This is the End Edition

This is the End is one of the funniest films of the year so far if you're a fan of Seth Rogen and his gang. Even if you're not, you're still going to find yourselves laughing. A good gauge of how funny This is the End is going to be to you...

 
 
This is the End Review photo

Review: This is the End

I've been harsh toward This is the End from the very beginning. First batch of trailers painted the film as a "Hey look at [enter famous name here] acting wacky!" sort of comedy, but as the trailers rolled on and hinted at the bigger pictur...

Trailer: This is the End (Red Band)

This new Red Band trailer for This is the End has enough new content and hints of plot (it seems to be a biblical apocalypse) to help you figure out what kind of movie it's going to be. It's filled to the brim with comedians like Seth Roge...

Trailer: Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie

Kevin Smith may not be able to figure out what the hell he's doing with the Clerks franchise, at least he's got an idea for Jay and Silent Bob. Well to be more precise, Jason Mewes has got the idea (since he's producing it himself). Fair w...

MGM wants Hot Tub Time Machine 2 to exist for some reason

Despite being borderline awful (with a few admittedly funny bits from Craig Robinson), Hot Tub Time Machine performed well enough on "home video" that MGM is considering producing a sequel. Right now, talks are extremely early (so there's n...

Trailer: Scary Movie 5

Here you go everyone, the moment almost no one has been waiting for. Ever since it was announced that a fifth Scary Movie was going to be made without Anna Faris, then Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen were stunt casted for some reason, and ...

Trailer: John Dies at the End (Red Band)

I had some former knowledge of the book John Dies at the End by David Wong, and I knew that it was essentially batsh*t insane, but this is the first trailer I've seen for the film adaptation, and woo boy is it ever wacky. I don't even...

Jay and Silent Bob are getting an animated film in 2013

That's right, good old Paul Revere Kevin Smith himself is set to release a Jay and Silent Bob animated feature next Spring! It's being produced by Jason Mewes (Jay, otherwise known as the Snoochie Boochies guy) and will most likely be ...

Trailer: High School

Look out, it's another high school movie with possibly the most simplistic name ever: High School! Oh wait, they're doing drugs? Oh, so it's High School, since they're getting high...yep, still a boring title. This 90-minute romp follows t...

Trailer: Austin High

Austin is best represented by films like Slacker and Dazed and Confused. This city I love and live in really is full of stoners, deadbeats, and crazy people. Stereotypes exist for a reason, after all. Yet, I think things aren't quite as cr...
