Anyone else looking forward to this film? Jack Black and Mos Def reenacting loads of films because the tapes got wiped.
i hope somehow gondry transforms him. i did hate jim carrey before eternal sunshine.
the one film where I don't find him excruciatingly annoying.
until he drop kicked that dog of a bridge in anchor man (I secretly think school of rock is a good film too)
saw a clip recently and thought it looked magic.
When is it out?
But doubt it will be.
Far from perfect but it is so inventive and infectious that I couldn't help but love it.
is funny as hell and since the patchy Human Nature Michel Gondry is brilliant. I'm 'cited about it
It looks ace. God bless filmmakers with at least a couple of original bones in their bodies.
and my heart sinks. The only thing worse than him is any film with a cheap fat 'whacky' sidekick ripping off his act.
And I'm looking at you 'Reaper'.
but he's great in this. He's reined in just enough and has a great chemistry with Mos Def.
I was dubious but always liked him in High Fidelity...
I have no issue with him, except when it comes to Tenacious D and then I cringe.
I loved 'School of Rock' for it's childish charm, he was the only decent element in the otherwise abhorrent 'High Fidelity' and I'm sure he'll pull off this film. It's inventive and enigmatic enough to work perfectly.
cant fucking wait to see it
its great but that the script is terrible :-(
i'll still watch it though
Two films that i am looking forward to this month star Jack Black, this and Margot at the weeding, Be Kind looks great but with Kaufmann-less Michel Gondry films there is always something lacking at it's core. Great concept though.
but that it'll be all about the setpieces and sketches with little/no real plot.
still can't wait to see it.
take a shit.
so jack black is fine.
it wouldn't actually be poo, it would be burlap cutouts or something
my crap is as big as a grain of rice."
also, hasn't this been on the verge of theaters for forever now? annoying
to see Black to be in a film directed by Gondry.
After watching the trailer i really, really want to go and see it. I hope it is genuinely good. And that Jack Black isn't annoying.
It's not like Adam Sandler with punch Drunk Love, I don't know what you're all complaining about.
I'm kinda looking forward to this, but I won't rush to see it.
but that was several years ago so i could be completely wrong about it
is a bad film (I like it)- I'm referring to an irredeemable actor turning in a good performance in a trendy director's film.
He's an absolute moron, a money grabbing moron.
barring Punch Drunk Love, are any of those films considered good films.
is entertaining too. "Excellent" is maybe a bit too much though!
How could anyone think this?
and who else thinks it's fucking amazing?
*puts hand up*
this is just quite good. mostly because all the funny bits are in the trailer, and jack black is a bit annoying.
Although obviously waay better concept and probably more original. I really hope this film is good cause its been AAGES since we had a good buddy/feelgood film.
Saw an advanced screening of this tonight and it's fantastic. I couldnt stop laughing. Beautifully filmed as well. Pure Gondry.
