Watch The Charming Trailer For ‘Together Together’ Starring Ed Helms

Ed Helms seems like a pretty likable dude, right? From ‘The Office‘ to ‘The Hangover’ his comedy work has always been solid.

So it’s nice to see him getting a leading man role in the upcoming surrogacy comedy, Together Together.

The movie, which was written/directed Nikole Beckwith, has Helms playing a single 40-something who hires a young loner (Patti Harrison) as his surrogate.

The two strangers come to realize that their new relationship quickly challenges their perceptions of connection, boundaries, and the particulars of love.

‘Together Together’ premiered at Sundance to mostly positive reviews. It looks like it’s going to be one of those movies that’s impossible to dislike, which kinda describes Ed Helms perfectly.

The film will get a theatrical release on April 23 before being released on digital platforms in May.

Check Out The Hilarious Redband Trailer For ‘Father Figures’ Starring Owen Wilson And Ed Helms

Owen Wilson and Ed Helms are trying to keep the outrageous, Hangover-style comedy alive with their latest film, Father Figures. The movie was originally titled Bastards, but the studio decided to change it. We’re not why, since Father Figures kinda gives off a more wholesome vibe, and as you can clearly see in the video below, there is nothing wholesome about this movie.

The two stars play twins Kyle and Peter Reynolds in the comedy. Early on in the film, they discover their mother (thanks to the free love of the 70s) doesn’t know who their true father is.

So they decided to narrow the search down to a few options, and then set out on a road trip to meet with the candidates. Terry Bradshaw, J.K. Simmons and Christopher Walken play the potential fathers. Katt Williams also stars as a hitchhiker/possible serial killer.

Father Figures is set to hit theaters December 22, 2017.

Owen Wilson, Ed Helms, And Katt Williams Star In Road Trip Comedy ‘Bastards’ Check Out The Trailer Inside! (VIDEO)

Are you ready for another generic, R-rated road trip comedy? If so, you’ll want to watch the trailer for the upcoming comedy film Bastards. There hasn’t been a lot of marketing for this movie, but that might be changing soon as we near its release date in January.

The first trailer was released this week, and while there are a few funny moments, it’s basically the same style of comedy Hollywood has been releasing ever since The Hangover hit box office gold.

Owen Wilson, Ed Helms and the always entertaining Katt Williams star in the movie. Wilson and Helms are playing brothers, and Williams plays a homeless man they pick up during their road trip to find their biological father. And since this is a Hollywood movie, we’re willing to bet Williams’ character somehow leads them to their father, and teaches them how to love each other.

Bastards was written by Justin Malen, who is currently one of the hottest screenwriters out there. His first feature film Office Christmas Party will hit theaters in December, followed by Bastards in January, and then he has the Baywatch remake next summer.

Check out the official synopsis and trailer below…

Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Owen Wilson (“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Zoolander 2”) star in Alcon Entertainment’s comedy “Bastards,” under the direction of Lawrence Sher (“The Hangover” films).

The film marks the directorial debut of the veteran cinematographer. Helms and Wilson play Peter and Kyle Reynolds, two brothers whose eccentric mother (Glenn Close) raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out to find their real father, learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.


Movie Review: Vacation (2015) – The Laugh Out Loud Moments Are Gone


The Griswold family was a staple of my childhood. Watching Chevy Chase as everyman Clark Griswold, as he took his family on European vacations, family vacations, Christmas vacations and even a Vegas vacation was one of my first exposures to comedy. So I was thrilled when they decided to revamp the series, focusing on Clark’s now adult son Rusty. I was so excited. I was excited like that time I got flowers at work on Valentine’s Day.

And much like that time, it ended in disappointment. Just like those flowers, this movie was not for me.

Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) is a married father of two, who is planning a family trip from Chicago to California’s Walley World for Memorial Day Weekend. His goal is to fix the first vacation from the original family vacation movie, where they wound up at Wally World only to learn it was closed. They break the fourth wall early on for skeptical audiences.

“You want to redo your vacation?” asks wife Debbie (Christina Applegate). “My vacation had a boy and a girl,” Rusty retorts. “This one has two boys. And I’m sure there will be plenty of other differences.” That was cute, but then they just wouldn’t stop! “I’ve never heard of the original vacation,” says Rusty’s son James (Skyler Gisondo). “It doesn’t matter,” insists Dad. “The new vacation will stand on its own.”

We get it, ok. Let it go. Breaking the fourth wall requires surgeon like precision, not bashing us over the head with it over and over again.

Of course, the road trip is filled with peril and calamity. That’s where the similarities end, because this time, the laugh out loud moments are gone, replaced with fist fights and curse words. When someone isn’t swearing or fighting, it’s just dead air, like the movie was directed by a poorly maintained radio station.

Rusty Griswold never had a good vacation, not even once. The filmmakers could have seized on this as the overwhelming theme of the movie. Instead, they insisted on referencing the old movie to bring back shades of nostalgia to an audience who knew and loved the originals.

The problem is this movie is nothing like the originals. Not even the poorly done Vegas vacation, which was a shameless cash grab. That’s right, this movie doesn’t even compare to the worst of the franchise. I felt like they wrote a basic outline of the script, and then told the actors to improv. The problem was that Ed Helms is the only one who knows anything about improv and even he didn’t bring it in this movie.

If you want to revel in nostalgia, I highly recommend watching the other family vacation movies. Those actually provided the ability to laugh, even at incredibly inappropriate times (like the whole dog getting leashed to the rear bumper and forgotten). Chevy Chase made Clark Griswold both likeable and annoying in one fell swoop. I thought Ed Helms would be able to do the same for Rusty, but honestly, it was an outright fail.

The First Red Band Trailer For The New ‘Vacation’ Film Has Been Released! (VIDEO)

We have a special treat for you all this Friday. The red band trailer for the Vacation reboot has been released, and it’s actually not that bad.

One thing you’ll notice right away are the references to the original film. The trailer even begins with footage from the original 1983 comedy. And then we jump straight into raunchy town, which makes sense considering this is the red band trailer.

Like always, we’re not going to ruin the trailer by telling you everything that happens inside of it. Just watch it for yourself and be surprised.

We will tell you that this film is filled with some pretty big names in the comedy game. You have Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Charlie Day, Nick Kroll and Keegan-Michael Key. With a cast like that, you have to expect a lot of laughs.

And the fact that the studio decided to release this film in the middle of summer proves they are confident in this project. You can catch Vacation in theaters July 29, 2015.

The ‘Vacation’ Reboot Will Be Coming To A Theater Near You Sooner Than You Think!


Excited for the reboot of the classic comedy franchise? We have some good news for you. Warner Bros. is moving the release date from October to the prime summer date of July 31.

This announcement proves the studio has high hopes for the film, which stars Ed Helms, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Christina Applegate, and Charlie Day. Original cast members Beverly D’Angelo and Chevy Chase will be making brief appearances in the movie.

Ed Helms has the lead role as Rusty Griswold, the now grown son of Clark and Ellen Griswold. Christina Applegate will be playing his wife, and Leslie Mann co-stars as Rusty’s sister, Audrey Griswold.


This film has been described as both a reboot and a sequel to National Lampoon’s Vacation. The IMDb page for the reboot reveals Rusty will be taking his own family on vacation.

“Rusty Griswold takes his own family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.”

John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein will share credits for directing and writing the movie.

Like we mentioned above, this new release date proves everyone involved with this project is confident this thing will be a massive hit.
