Unless it's City Slickers III Norman's Revenge I don't care.

While watching that trailer, one thought kept going through my mind:

"This would be so much funnier with Albert Brooks in Crystal's place"

Billy Crystal and Bette Midler are looking terrific for mid 60s.

And I really can't recommend highly enough the first 20 minutes of Before the Devil Knows You're Dead for any Marisa Tomei fans.

I think they are real, and they are spectacular.

(Director gets his revenge though and makes you watch naked Philip Seymour Hoffman)

Ugh, by "neurotically best" you mean "terrible stereotype from the 80s"

The good: you get to see Marisa Tomei naked.

The Bad and the Ugly: you also see Philip Seymour Hoffman naked. The dude can act but I don't need him ruining my Marisa Tomei fantasies.

"Mr. Saturday Night" was the best movie you never saw

"And now, the star of our show, the kamikaze of comedy! Fasten your seat belts, put on your crash helmets; because here he comes... Mr. Saturday Night... Buddy Young, Junior!"

It's not funny, it's not fun.

This. The trailer was pretty "meh" up to that point, but that's where I Xed out.

For some reason, everybody in Hollywood thinks "ow my balls" is hilarious. Nobody outside Hollywood does. Anybody struggling with this concept should ask themselves "suppose we replace that scene with the kid punching the wife in the breast -- is it still funny?". If the answer is "no", don't go there.
 
2012-09-17 08:40:33 AM
I'm going to watch this and probably like it. So there.

you know why they think it's funny? Jersey Shore. Toddlers for Tiaras. Any moronic 'ghost' program.

Hollywood has Americans pegged as morons, and they're not too far off.

Eh, movies about parenthood are one of the lowest rungs an actor can sink to because they are so formulaic.

Also, trailers show the best material in movies -- if getting hit in the balls is one of the best gags, just imagine the comedy gold from the other 100 minutes that wasn't worthy enough to be in the trailer.

I love Billy Crystal, but he's pretty much been in only three really good movies over the last two years: Monsters, Inc. (2001) Analyze This (1999) and City Slickers (1991)

Not "Forget Paris". It would not have been half as good without him.

It's a shame that guy's talent is wasted on a soccer mom movie.

You Are All Sheep: Hollywood has Americans pegged as morons, and they're not too far off.


There are a lot of smart and interesting movies out there but you aren't looking for them. Instead you're going to movies starring the extremely bland Billy Crystal, watching someone get hit in the nuts and then getting annoyed because it isn't King Lear.

In the same way I don't think Don Rickles's or Dean Martin's humor would kill it nowadays, the audience for a short, neurotic Jew comedy is getting smaller and smaller with each passing year.

YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH.

His reactions alone are still hilarious.

If it's not Running Scared 2, I don't give a fark.

However, since Gregory Hines is dead, it could be a dual sequel to both that Running Scared and the one Paul Walker did.

Unless it is Father's Day 2, i'll pass.

does anyone rightly care about what billy farking crystal is doing these days? seriously, i mean is ANYONE worried about Billy's work?

he had a brief moment in the sun and made a few movies that whipped males could relate to.

no one cares any longer.
 
2012-09-17 05:31:07 PM
Might actually be funny if Bette Midler wasn't in it. I can't stand her.

What? You were spewing another diatribe about BIG HOLLYWOOD and it's obvious you don't look at anything other than the ones that are spoonfed people with huge media blitzes.

So yeah, your problem with BIG HOLLYWOOD is you.

And here I thought Woody Allen had patented the "Jewish neurotic" on screen.

Unless this trailer returns Billy Crystal to the unborn state, headline is wrong.

We're not going to those movies.

I just torched your pathetic straw man and burned it to the ground.

Now what are you going to do?

Besides shout angrily at empty chairs, I mean.
