The new movie from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant looks pretty good. Let’s just consider this their apology for Ghost Town and Tooth Fairy.
The only words I understood in that were “Cemetary Junction” at the end.
or Cemetery. Dammit.
Mumblecore = barely tolerable film trope
British Mumblecore = agony on an epic scale
If I see this movie it will be on DVD with the titles on.
You don’t have to understand what a man is saying to find him sexually attractive. Unfortunately, this is how I ended up having a three-way with Bob Dylan and Ozzy Osbourne )-:
Are you hitting on me?
That depends. Do you have an impenetrable accent or drug-induced speech impediment?
I can understand Brits fine, but I was definitely contemplated putting the captions on while watching In the Loop whenever the Scottish swearing-champion talked.
Really? Peter Capaldi (the guy you’re talking about) has a rather normal Scottish accent. I thought other people would understand him fine… (I’m Scottish.)
I loved In The Loop, but I think part of my problem with this video was the thick accents and also the crappy YouTube quality of it. Perhaps in theaters Cemetery Junction will be more intelligible?
I think it’s Invention of Lying that warrants the apology.
there arent enough words to apologize for that. ghost town was a dumb little movie but the invention of lying was probably the least funny thing purporting to be funny that i have ever seen.
Least intelligible video since, what, Friday? Needs more roller-skating shadrack.
Because this trailer bored me, I’m gonna go Offtopicgum. Did you know that Ricky Gervais was in an 80′s band? Called “Seona Dancing”? How about a 80′s dance band movie spoof, Mr. Gervais? Cause that would be the besssssssssssst arrrrrrouuuund…..
Dammit, where’s the “upvote infinity” button??
When they work together, it’s gold. When they work separately, it seems to be more up in the air. Therefore I am really looking forward to this.
im as dorky midwestern as they come, and i’ve never spoken to a british person in my life, and i could understand them just fine.
maybe you guys are early onset hearing lossgum
Same here (except I’m from the East coast), but I do watch a lot of British film/television, so that’s probably attuned my ear to the accent. Maybe the other monsters stick to American entertainment?
Twonationsseparatedbyacommonlangugegum. Looks great. Everything Stephen Merchant says makes me laugh.
What they were saying was irrelevant. “All the Young Dudes” is film shorthand for “This is a movie about disaffected teens.”
It’s also probably the “Solisbury Hill” of this upcoming decade.
Or “Back in Black” for less aggro types.
“Let’s just consider this their apology for Ghost Town and Tooth Fairy.” You forgot the Invention of Lying.
Maybe I’m missing the joke. Did Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant have something to do with Tooth Fairy?
Are Gervais and Merchant the British Happy Madison?
I’m anticipating a Ricky Gervais backlash. I’ll collect the bets for when that will be.
