THE FARRELLY BROTHERS TO MAKE MOVIE OF GOP CONVENTION

HOLLYWOOD – The Farrelly Brothers are to return to gross out comedy with a film based on the 22016 GOP convention.

The team who brought us Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal and Dumb and Dumber To are to make a motion picture based on the Republican Convention which closes in Cleveland tonight.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about their new project. Peter spoke first:

We came down to the convention as we just wanted to soak up the vibe but pretty soon we just started filming. The original idea was to use that material as research material basically. And write a script off of that, exaggerating and what not for comic effect. It turns out that we can basically just use the footage we have. There is nothing that we can think of which is grosser or more comic than what we witnessed.

Bobby added:

If anything, we have too much material. I don’t know what’s funnier, Ted Cruz getting booed or Melania Trump copying Michelle Obama’s speech! Perhaps it’s Ben Carson insisting that Hillary Clinton is inspired by Lucifer, or Chris Christie performing some kind of mock trial of the former Secretary of State. It was sick and crazy and that’s coming from the guy who was involved in Movie 43.

The Republican Convention concludes this evening with a speech from Donald Trump.

HAROLD LLOYD SUES JIM CARREY

HOLLYWOOD – Silent comedy star and bespectacled accident prone icon Harold Lloyd today began legal proceedings to sue Jim Carrey.

Jim Carrey, along with the Farrelly brothers and Jeff Daniels, are accused by Harold Lloyd of using his name in two movies which he deems ‘harmful to my reputation as a comedian’.

Star of The Freshman, Safety Last and Girl Shy, Lloyd spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec:

When I first encountered the characters Lloyd Christmas and Harrold Dunne in Dumb and Dumber I took the names to be an affectionate tribute to my comedy even though the film itself was based on lewd humor in poor taste, rather than my death defying stunts. I didn’t really understand the reason they would name check me but it is nice to feel you are being recognised so I made no move. However, things changed when I saw the ineptly spelled Dumb and Dumber To. This was a genuinely awful film. About as funny as a child’s freshly dug grave. And I felt I ought to take action to disassociate myself from this dross before it irredeemably damaged my career.

But didn’t you die in 1971?

Yes, and the fact that I’m issuing this law action  from the beyond the veil that those who living call life speaks to how strongly I feel about the issue. Even kicking the bucket didn’t hurt my reputation as much as these nincompoops have. I’m sorry about the blue language, but Heavens to Betsy they have me worked up into a lather.

The case is due to be heard in the West Hollywood courthouse later this month and if it succeeds could as the first postmortem case of intellectual property rights lay a dangerous precedent. Steve Martin for one will be following the case closely as Phil Silvers, Spencer Tracy and Peter Sellers are thought to be considering a class action lawsuit against the famously white haired comedian.

Jim Carrey, Bob and Peter Farrelly and Jeff Daniels refused to comment.

H.P. LOVECRAFT’S MOVIE REVIEWS

ARKHAM – In a new feature, the Studio Exec is proud to present esteemed horror short story writer H.P. Lovecraft and his eldritch movie review column.

Greetings.

Never in the history of mankind has an invention as insidious and powerful as the magic lantern show called cinema been allowed to perpetuate its foul secret dealings without let or hindrance on the unassuming and innocent unknowing masses of humanity. Few have endeavored to unveil the secret meanings held within its depraved offerings, lest they flee from the darkened cavern of the movie house raving and gibbering and complete stark raving insane! But I who have unveiled the mythos of Cthulhu, I who have gasped at the hidden angles of the dream house of Kadath and climbed the Mountains of Madness; I who have sat through all the Fast and Furious films, even the ones without Vin Diesel, am now willing to deliver to the world my findings, hopeful that they will serve as a warning to humanity that no one else strive to go where I have trembling gone…

Dumb and Dumber To

Harold and Lloyd return after years of exile to the light of day. Lloyd has journeyed into the cavernous depths of his own insane mind and Harold has visited him on a weekly basis and now they must once more confront a civilization they no longer understand, but now without the distraction of comedy. Bravely the filmmakers have done away with all humor and left us to regard the horror of existence in all its disturbing reality. Watch at your peril for few can regard a work such as this without finally losing their minds!

American Sniper

Not nearly racist enough. The swarthy savages, whose simpler minds and primitive appetites make them perfect disciples of the Elder Ones and their evil scheming, are dispensed of with admirable elan by the bearded fat one from The Hangover. But for why the despair?

Selma

Not enough tentacles.

Padington

The bear talks! And yet this uncanny horror is served up to humanity as a children’s film!? This malignant beast, the burning eyes of his ‘hard stare’, his horrendous maw dripping with foul gooey marmalade, far from being cuddly is more diabolical than the devil himself. An arcane horror from the darkest regions of Peru, brought to the light by the folly and hubris of the manifold pretenses of ‘science’ now stalks London, causing mayhem wherever he roams, though thankfully pursued by the ever reliable Nicole Kidman. I cheered for Miss Kidman throughout the film, but like many lone voices of reason, crying out in the wilderness of most arcane horror, she is treated with utter dripping contempt and ends the film covered in animal feces for the entertainment of fools and little fools, also known as children.

COUNTDOWN TO 2014 OSCARS BEGINS BY MISTAKE

HOLLYWOOD – The countdown to the 2014 Oscars has officially begun, following a mistake.

The New Year is here and is often the case some confusion follows in the wake of too much good cheer and celebration. And it was so in the Academy of Motion Pictures and Arts when the countdown to this year’s Academy Awards, or Oscars as they are informally known, was officially initiated. So much so that it accidentally began to the 2014 Oscars and not this year’s 2015 Oscars. An unthinking keystroke means that by the Academy’s own secret rule book the entire 2014 ceremony will have to be replayed before the 2015 one can take place a month later.

 

A spokesperson for the academy was distraught:

We’re going to have to listen to all of Ellen’s terrible jokes and we’re going to have to try and reconstruct that awful selfie. All the awards will have to be announced and the winners and losers will have to feign surprised delight and barely concealed hatred. Steve McQueen is going to have to do that stupid up and down jumping thing he did.

I think it’s just called jumping.

Yeah, well, he’s going to have to do it again. It’s going to be a logistical nightmare and the viewing figures will suffer, almost certainly.

And what about the Oscars in 2015?

I think it is going to be a tight competition between Pompeii and Dumb and Dumber To, with Left Behind being everyone’s dark horse possibility.

The Oscars 2014 take place on the 22nd of February, 2015.

DUMB AND DUMBER TO SPELLING FAIL

HOLLYWOOD – Film makers Bobby and Pete Farrelly were left red faced yesterday when it was revealed they had misspelled the name of their own movie Dumb and Dumber To.

In a mishap worthy of their two moronic characters Harold and Lloyd, played by Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey, the title printed on all the promotional material and even the title sequence of the film itself was either missing a W or perhaps missing another O.

Jim Carrey, whose career has been plagued by mistakes of late such as Mr Popper’s Penguins, was relatively sanguine:

This kind of thing happens all the time. It’s a simple typo that wasn’t caught and the whole thing repeated itself. Yes, it’s a little embarrassing for a huge studio picture like this to make such a foolish error, but no one got hurt and if the film ends up losing money because of it, it’s still going to do better than The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.

Jeff Daniels, however, was less forgiving:

I beat Bryan Cranston to get an Emmy! For The Newsroom, of all things. I’m a serious actor and I expect the same level of professionalism from all those around me. Some people have even suggested that it is some kind of joke! That is arrant nonsense. We deal in sophisticated wordplay and political satire. How is misspelling a word funny? In what way? It’s just carelessness. Care. Less. Ness.

Meanwhile, Bobby and Pete Farrelly tried to brush the whole debacle off as some kind of misunderstanding:

The title Dumb and Dumber To is not a mistake. It is a joke. We misspelled the word deliberately because that’s a dumb thing to do and the film is called Dumb and Dumber. You see. It’s kind of… I mean, it IS funny, isn’t it?

Dumb and Dumber Two is currently in theaters.

DUMB AND DUMBER 5 ANNOUNCED

HOLLYWOOD – Following the successful reuniting of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey vehicle Dumb and Dumber To comes the news that work has already started on a third film, provisionally entitled Dumb and Dumber 5

We spoke to Dumb and Dumber star Jim Carrey about the new film:

While we were making the new film we were having so much fun me and Jeff and we said to the Farrelly brothers hell we’d love to do another. And they said they couldn’t because they wanted to do a sequel to their Three Stooges movie because it was such a huge hit and we said that wasn’t a huge hit, and they said no they’d been joking. That’s the kind of fun we were having!

So Dumb and Dumber 5 will be… 

The thing is people will say Dumb and Dumber 5, but surely this is the third film, and it is, but we’re using 5 because they’re so darned stupid that they can’t count! Do you get it? Yeah.

So how is it working with… 

No, I mean the thing is there’s the first film then this second one and then the next one should be called Dumb and Dumber 3 but it is actually Dumb and Dumber 5.

Are you at all worried about being typecast as… 

Of course, we were kicked around Dumb and Dumber 4 but then someone said, what about that shitty film that they tried to pass off Dumb and Dumber: When Harry Met Lloyd? And we all went yeah and so Pete and Bobby got together for about an hour and half and they came back with Dumb and Dumber 5 and the room burst into spontaneous applause. It was… genius.

Dumb and Dumber 5 will be released in 2015.  

JIM CARREY DISSES MR POPPER’S PENGUINS

HOLLYWOOD  – Jim Carrey announced via his Twitter feed that he was withdrawing support from Mr Popper’s Penguins, ‘because it was a pile of shit’.

The film – which came out in 2011 –  was largely seen as a ‘vacuous malodorous stench filled lump of virulent puss’, The New York Times.

Director Mark Waters expressed his disappointment:

Jim is a wonderful actor, but he is Canadian and they are treacherous when it comes down to it. Don’t get me wrong, some of my best friends are Canadians. But still they should be wiped off the face of the Earth.

The announcement comes only minutes after Ace Ventura (as he likes to be called) announced he would not be supporting Kick Ass 2 in which he appears, due to its violence. 

Speculation is now rife that Jim Carrey is going back through his filmography and trying to distance himself from all the crap he’s done. The process might well take weeks.

Dumb and Dumber To is in theaters.
