I knew going in the film would be sophomoric and silly, but I went anyway. James Franco is a pretty good actor and Seth Rogen has proved himself in Freaks & Geeks and 50/50 so I thought this film had a shot at being interesting. It's OK, but not great. There is a certain amount of amusement in famous Hollywood people playing themselves and making fun of themselves or the personna they've developed, but the movie misses. The elements are there, but it didn't come through in the script or the execution. Yes there are a few laughs and a few surprises and every member of current Hollywood royalty has a role or a cameo appearance; but wait for cable. Other than a few imaginative moments, I was bored. The last 15 minutes make the film worth viewing - but on the small screen.
I can see Rushdie's stuff adapting well. Lots of plot to play with.
which one is "new york" and which one is "hoopz"?
"already assumed chalky"
english, motherfucker! do you speak it?
Only reason to see is this movie is that Rosario Dawson is completely naked.
"So why, in the midst of breaking so much ground, is Scott-Young reviled among so many women of color?"
It's very interesting to watch the popularity of her shows in that for as much as there people complaining about the content, there are millions are viewers tuning in, talking about her "characters" as if the know them throughout social media. There must be something good about this since the numbers are there, right? Honestly the 'drama' of her shows are no different than any other reality show--White or Black. However, I do think it points to this DESIRE for more diversity on TV, more about life from the African American perspective.
These shows are so tacky.
It's funny to hear this lady defend her product. She knows and well all know how much scum it is. But she didn't start the scum party so she figures why not get it while the gettin is good like most everyone else.
Can't blame her I guess. People tune in.
already assumed Chalky
do u actually know any? the feeling is probably mutual.
GOD I HATE WHITE PEOPLE
I've met these guys. They have come into the store where I work on several occasions and they have been nothing but respectful. The absolute shitty part about this article is the writers clear disdain for the twins. Big deal they want to be rich and famous. For me, their worst crime is doing coke and even that only hurts them.
When I read an article I just want the facts not you opinion which is what this article was.
Finally found that deer on the wall... http://www.theivorycompany.com/cat-17-1-17…
A friend of mine saw them standing outside Center Stage the night of that Die Antwoord show, trying to convince the door guy that they were on the guest list. What a couple of hillbilly losers.
having these two morons on the front cover of creative loafing is a shame and embarrassment to the city of atlanta.
mcpoyle brothers. yep. jason x nailed it.
They bragged about being in the movie Spring Breakers but then in the movie James Franco is pretty much mocking people like them the whole time. They have no lines at all. It seems the only reason they were in the movie, was to have them on set so James Franco could get a first hand look on what type of people he is making fun of. It's the most absurd, ridiculous, hilarious movie I've seen in a while.
Too bad the guy Marky Mark blinded during a hate crime won't be able to see this flick. Or is that a blessing in disguise? I've never liked this prick since I found out about that.
A stunt bump and a stunt lump? Marky Mark's rhymes are still the wackest.
