A comedy this unfunny hasn’t come along in a long time, it has to be seen to be believed.
The film stars Damon Wayans jr and Jake Johnson, the pair play best friends who attend a fancy dress party as cops.
After realising a few girls are impressed by the uniforms, they decide to become full-time pretend cops and buy a squad car on ebay.
They then get involved in real investigations and have to take on the Russian mob.
The premise is actually quite good, but the idea doesn’t stretch out to 104 minutes. The situations are unbelievable and it takes a lot of suspension of disbelief to even be passable.
This could have been a great series of 5-10 minute shorts online.
I’ve been a fan of Aardman animation for years, so I’m really excited for this Wallace and Gromit spin-off.
Viewers first met Shaun way back in the Wallace and Gromit movie ‘a close shave’.
Shaun the sheep has been a long running and successful tv series on CBBC and, was recently voted the nation’s favourite BBC children’s character of all time in a Radio Times poll. It has also launched the spin-off series ‘Timmy time’ aimed at the younger cbeebies audience.
The movie sees Shaun decide to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for! SHAUN’s mischief inadvertently leads to The Farmer being taken away from the farm, to the Big City…
SHAUN THE SHEEP THE MOVIE is currently in Production at Aardman Studios in Bristol and will open in UK Cinemas on February 6th 2015.

With the third and possibly final instalment of the Kick-Ass trilogy now out in comic book shops, fans have been wondering if there will ever be another sequel in the film universe.
Chloe Moretz (Hit-Girl) has been doing the press rounds for her latest movie, if I stay.
In one interview she was asked about the possibility of a Kick-Ass 3.
“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre. Kick-Ass 2 was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn’t help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie – but because it didn’t do so well, we can’t make another one.”
Here is the trailer for the sequel to the hit horror movie ‘The woman in black’.
Set in England, 1941 With London in the midst of the blitz, two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening when their arrival awakens the Woman in Black.

Legendary comic book writer Frank Miller has been doing the press rounds for his new movie Sin City 2: A dame to kill for.
In an interview with Playboy he was asked what he thought about Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
There’s a consensus that Daredevil and Elektra, two movies adapted from comics you wrote, were lousy. Do you agree with that opinion?
When people come out with movies about characters I’ve worked on, I always hate them. I have my own ideas about what the characters are like. I mean, I can’t watch a Batman movie. I’ve seen pieces of them, but I generally think, No, that’s not him. And I walk out of the theater before it’s over.
Does that include the Christopher Nolan Batman movies?
It includes all of them. I’m not condemning what he does. I don’t even understand it, except that he seems to think he owns the title Dark Knight. [laughs] He’s about 20 years too late for that. It’s been used.
Nolan’s last two Batman movies each grossed more than $1 billion worldwide. Does any of that money make its way to you?
No. If money’s owed me, I wouldn’t put it on him or any other author. To be sitting here whining and mewling and puking about that sort of thing…let other people do that.
A lot of Dark Knight readers think you love Batman and hate Superman. Any truth to that?
The Dark Knight series is all from Batman’s point of view. But if you look at Dark Knight 2, you’ll see a Superman who’s much calmer than the one in the first Dark Knight. Batman and Superman are dead opposites. I love Superman. Do I love Batman more? They’re not people. They’re only lines on paper.
Jackie Chan visited BFI Southbank for a screening of his film Chinese Zodiac and had an exclusive career interview with Jonathan Ross. The event was part of the British Film Institute’s A Century of Chinese Cinema season sponsored by Lycamobile, the largest global provider of low-cost international mobile calls.
The interview is a fantastic insight into the acting legend, and Ross even manages to persuade Chan to sing the song from Little Big Soldier at the end!
