'Jeff Who Lives at Home' trailer - Jason Segal attempts to soil my good name

You know, I’ve had a pretty good run with the name Jeff. Yeah, my initials JVC are the same as the major electronics company, but it could have been worse; I could have been named Michael Bolton. Still, it irks me to see the Duplass brothers try to ruin the good thing I have going. Their new film Jeff Who Lives at Home portrays we Jeffs as the type who live at home with our parents until we’re well into our 30s. It’s not true, I tell you! If I wasn’t pretty sure this would be a good movie, I might be offended.

New trailer for 'The Muppets' reveals its plot

I've always had a soft spot for Jim Henson and it looks like The Muppets might be a decent comeback for the theater gang. Assuming it doesn't get too cutesy and stays edgy enough to score some laughs, this could be one of the better November movies out this year. This new trailer shows the plot which seems to be that the Muppets want to make a comeback but Hollywood keeps saying their old and irrelevent (likely to pass them up for a shot-for-shot remake of Footloose...). 

The Muppets is directed by James Bobin, who is mostly known for his TV work writing and directing Flight of the Conchords and Da Ali G Show. It was written by Jason Segal and Nicholas Stoller, both of which have written some good Judd Apatow comedies in recent years.

The Muppets hits theaters Nov. 23, 2011. It promises to be full of celebrities and even has a new theme song, sung by OK Go

Has our bromance with Judd Apatow ended? A box office history from VIRGIN to GREEK

Judd Apatow has seen better days. A few years ago he couldn't go wrong with $100 million hits like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, and Superbad. Now his newest feature, Get Him to the Greek, can't dethrone Shrek Forever After, a deflated, three-week-old sequel that continues to top the box office because of the incompetence of every other new release that has followed it. The new comedy took in a weak $17.5 million in its opening weekend, despite being quite hilarious. What's the deal? Are audiences tired of Judd Apatow's foul-mouthed, bromantic comedies?
