Mrs. Tiki and I went to see Funny People Saturday night. Funny People is Judd Apatow's (40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) latest bromance starring Adam Sandler & Seth Rogen. This isn'[t intended as a review of Funny People, but I will say this. It's funny, with serious relationship undertones, then funny again.
On to the two movies I can't wait to see (both featured as trailers during Funny People).
This is a Jon Favreau written, Peter Billingsley directed ensemble comedy starring Vince Vaughn. What more do I need to say? Yes, THE Peter Billingsley (Ralphie from A Christmas Story). You might have noticed him in The Break Up, alongside Vaughn, Favreau, & Jason Bateman. Throw in Kristin Bell, Kristin Davis and the hot but psycho wife from The Heartbreak Kid for the cheesecake and you have a good start. Kristin Bell, by the way, is wicked funny also. The premise is four married couples at a tropical island retreat (Hmmm sound like a Jenna Jameson plot), "Problem Island" as Vaughn's charachter describes it. The hilarity ensues. Watch the trailer at joblo.com.
Opens October 9th!
First off, this movie has maybe the coolest website ever. I have been peeping at it for months now. www.d-9.com Get ready to experience a multi-layer website that will blow you away. For the movie, it is an epic Peter Jackson (The Lord Of The Rings) adventure about aliens segregated into District 9. I am thinking I will need to go alone or with another Sci-Fi fan because it is not Mrs. Tiki's style. So get your applications in now to watch it with me! Opens August 14th!
