This might not be related, but I really wanted to have Old Dirty Bastard singing Buttercup at the top of the page for the weekend.

OPENING THIS WEEKEND (trailers below)

  • Piranha 3D.  Having a clever marketing campaign was one thing, but a movie called “Piranha 3D” tracking 83% on RottenTomatoes is an achievement on another level. Plus, it’s filled with gore and boobs and porn stars.  Heck, I’ll bite.  Get it?  Piranhas?  ‘Bite’?  Ow, hey, where’d this pie come from?
  • The Switch.  THE JASON BATEMAN DOLL MUST NOT BE TRUSTED.  That is all.
  • Lottery Ticket.  I respect the fact that they didn’t try to squeeze any whiteys into the cast to make it “more commercial.”  However, I’ll still be locking my car doors when I drive through its theaters.  I kid, I kid.  I’ll say this, I guarantee it will be funnier than Dinner for Schmucks.
  • The Movie That Shall Not Be Named.  Well, at least we know this guy liked it.

FILMDRUNK RECOMMENDS: Inception, Scott Pilgrim (though you might hate it), The Other Guys (to a lesser extent), Cyrus.

But really, who needs movies when you’ve got the Frotcast? (Subscribe on iTunes, subscribe to the non-iTunes RSS feed)
