The second full trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' is here, and it features some seriously amateur kidnapping maneuvers, as the guys try to put together a foolproof plan to help Chris Pine's character get revenge on his dear old dad, played by Christoph Waltz. If these guys can't even spell "kidnapping" correctly, we don't see this thing turning out very well.

The 'This Is Where I Leave You' trailer sells a movie that could be unbearably sentimental, or genuinely warm and touching, or funny. It's almost impossible to tell from two-and-a-half minutes of footage. However, you're unlikely to find a stronger cast of likable, funny people than this, and director Shawn Levy is certainly due for a little redemption after making nonsense like 'The Internship' and 'Date Night.'

‘Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary' Review: Everything Is...Pretty Okay

Yes, it’s a little odd that another LEGO movie is coming out so quickly after the release of, well, ‘The LEGO Movie’ – that also features an animated LEGO mini-fig voiced by a well-known celebrity. In this case, it’s Jason Bateman (as opposed to Chris Pratt) and this is a documentary (or, as they are calling it, a “brickumentary”), not a narrative feature.
‘Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary’ (which premiered this week at the Tribeca Film Festival) is a sort of companion piece, as opposed to direct competitor, to the aforementioned ‘The LEGO Movie’ – especially considering that ‘The LEGO Movie’ is mentioned quite a few times over the course of this film and we even see the shooting of a particular scene. (Funny, if you don’t want to be spoiled on how ‘The LEGO Movie’ ends, you probably should avoid ‘Beyond the Brick.’) Also, it’s endlessly fascinating.

'Bad Words' Review

“I’m not that good at a lot of stuff, especially thinking things through.”
Nope, Guy Trilby (Jason Bateman) really isn’t so good at thinking things through, but the bad choices that pepper Bateman’s directorial debut, ‘Bad Words,’ go so far beyond misplaced common sense that Guy’s early and wholly understated confession about his decision-making style is perhaps the last actually relatable bit of the entire film. A black comedy with a black heart, Bateman’s ‘Bad Words’ knowingly attempts to push the envelope of unlikability, littering the big screen with pintsized victims and one heck of a mangled word-centric competition. Often funny by virtue of its shock value and Guy’s clever wordsmithery, ‘Bad Words’ still doesn’t feel quite so great going down, but it at least announces Bateman’s directorial sensibilities loud and clear, and there’s plenty here to mine for future projects.

It seems ever since 'Bad Santa' any film that features adults acting horrendously around children must have the word 'Bad' in the title. Joining 'Teacher' and 'Santa' is 'Bad Words,' which Jason Bateman directed and stars in as a 40-year-old man who competes against children in a national spelling bee.
