RYAN: It's all about the funny this weekend at the movies. Let's begin with the big screen adaptation of the late 80's/early 90's TV show 21 Jump Street comin' at us, with the likes of Oscar nominee Jonah Hill and former stripper Channing Tatum.
CAROLINE: I think you just said all that needs be said about this film.
RYAN: I'm not a huge fan of either actor; and I wasn't born yet when the show was on so I've never seen it.
CAROLINE: Haaaaaaaaa, as if! I never really watched the show either. The trailer is mildly amusing but it looks like a broad comedy so we'll have to see if audiences are in the mood this weekend. I also kind of wonder if all the good jokes are in the trailer.
RYAN: Will this movie do for Jonah Hill what the TV show did for Johnny Depp back then? Make him a sex symbol?
CAROLINE: Yeah, no. Is it me or has he already gained a lot of the weight back? Here's the trailer:
RYAN: Next we have Jeff, Who Lives at Home with Jason Segel, who we know is the modern man behind The Muppets.
CAROLINE: I didn't see that yet, but this one looks a bit more my speed. And we love Judy Greer and Susan Sarandon who costar.
RYAN: I like the theme of this film - it's an indie comedy about a coupla brothers and it looks like there's a lot of heart.
CAROLINE: It could be funny or boring, but the cast is promising. Check it out:
RYAN: Up next is another indie comedy, this one with Will Ferrell, Casa de mi Padre, which is Spanish for House of my Father.
CAROLINE: This just looks like the typical, over-the-top, cheesiness Will Ferrell keeps doing... but randomly in Spanish. It's a novel idea at least.
RYAN: I like the costars, Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, who have worked together often; but this style of comedy is not really our thing.
CAROLINE: We have a low threshold for Will Ferrell in general. All the movies this week are rated R so it's not even like there's a more general audience option.
RYAN: The other options still look better than this one. Here's the trailer:
