Martinis and Popcorn: Side-splitting Laughter
Get ready to laugh this weekend, Socialite Life movie lovers.
Expected to lead the box office, begrudgingly acknowledged by the MacGruber group, Shrek Forever After (Shrek 4) is the final installment in the franchise, giving Cameron Diaz another chance to show off some killer Bad Teacher stems at all the premieres.
A sequel with a point, critics are embracing the idea of Shrek having a major green mid-life crisis that leads him to make a deal with Rumplestiltskin in hopes of a little spice, turning his world upside down.
Yes, “spice” might sound awkward for a children’s film, but this fourth installment is meant for the adults in the audience, full of jokes that will fly over the top of tots heads. They want everyone to laugh: children, adults, baby mama’s — everyone!
Shrek Forever After will definitely pull in some numbers and Hollywood knows it. The green ogre has a star on the Walk of Fame to prove it.
But still, let’s not forget MacGruber. After all, Ryan Phillippe has been all over the place trying to promote this film.
Based on the SNL skit, MacGruber is hoping to not swing and miss like many of its SNL predecessors.
And holy sh*t, Val Kilmer is in it. Remember him? And he even says he’s happy to be part of the crap film he knows it is.
“I’m proud of how bad this film is,” said Kilmer to The Wall Street Journal. Kilmer plays a nuclear
warhead-possessing villain named Dieter Von Cunth. “In fact, I can’t believe
I just called it a film. It’s a two-hour skit.”
