Andy Dick

There are certain auteurs out there, like the Coen brothers or Paul Thomas Anderson, who have never made any sequels to their fan favorite films. They’re artists who are always taking on new challenges, always attempting to break new ground. Pauly Shore is the same way. I’m certain that somebody somewhere has been clamoring for Encino Man 2, The Son In-Law 2, and especially In the Army Now 2 for years, but Shore has been unrelenting, always committed to moving forward and exploring new territory. All of that is supposedly about to change, however. Shore was recently a guest on Andy Dick’s Internet talk show Andy Dick Live, and during their conversation the talk turned to their memories starring together in 1994’s signal-of-the-end-of-Pauly-Shore’s-relevance, In the Army Now. Dick was the first to suggest that it might finally be time to give their biggest fans exactly what they want by filming a sequel called In the Army Again. He even went as far as to suggest that in the film their characters should, ” …rescue Katey Parry (sic) from a USO show gone bad or something.” Instead of laughing off the concept like anyone with an ounce of sanity would, Shore responded by saying, “We just need a script and someone to back the project and I’m in.” Then, to make matters worse, FilmOn.TV (the company that produces Dick’s show) CEO Alki David chimed in and said, “I’ll back it if both of you star in it.”


Boiling Point

With what is being called a massive failure at the box office, pulling in just $25 million domestic dollars (or 12% of its budget), Peter Berg‘s Battleship is sinking, but not before firing a warning shot across the bow of stupid ideas. And by a “warning shot across the bow” I mean a giant, moronic cruise missile. Battleship wasn’t destined for failure – after all, almost any idea can be made good. If you ignored the title, the idea of a few naval vessels fighting off aliens sounds pretty cool and not altogether stupid. However, you slap the Hasbro logo in-front of the credits and include a sequence where a missile destroyer blindly fires into the ocean while a captain shouts out “J-11″ and the stupidity quotient rises exponentially.


Apologizing is overrated. And you’re celebrities, after all. Aren’t you supposed to say stupid things?



Kevin and Neil whip themselves up into a frenzy about how ridiculously awesome The Dark Knight is. Oh, and they do manage to mention Peter Dinklage as well this week.
