DVD Review: Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras

Stars: Nicholas D’Agosto, Arielle Kebbel, Regina Hall, Bret Harrison, Josh Gad, Danneel Harris, Carmen Electra | Written by Josh Heald | Directed by Phil Dornfeld

Three college pals, depressed with their current social situation, decide to venture to New Orleans in pursuit of the happiness that has thus far eluded them – boobs, beads and brews. What could go possibly go wrong?

Mardi Gras, also know as Mardi Gras: Spring Break in the Us, has quietly snuck out onto DVD here in the UK with no fanfare whatsoever (I couldn’t even find the UK DVD box art for this review!) whilst American Reunion has has a huge marketing push and a theatrical release. The difference between the two? The budget. In other words, Mardi Gras is just as good as it’s gross-out comedy big-screen counterpart and features a cast that it just as likeable – in fact I’d

Mardi Gras: Spring Break Movie Review
Title: Mardi Gras: Spring Break Director: Phil Dornfeld Starring: Nicholas D’Agosto, Josh Gad, Bret Harrison, Arielle Kebbel, Danneel Harris, Carmen Electra, Regina Hall, Becky O’Donohue, Jessie O’Donohue, Charles Shaughnessy A surprisingly well known cast headlines “Mardi Gras: Spring Break,” a dispiriting slice of purported comedy that provides little more than a thinly stitched together parade of nudity, and denigrates the current trend of Hollywood infusion into the city of New Orleans. Nothing about this loud, unsubtle and roundly unfunny stinker merits much attention or discussion. It’s the sort of film that no cast member would bring up freely of their own volition in any interview. Heck, I believe even Carmen Electra...

We have an exclusive clip, which finds the boys being introduced to the drunken masses of Bourbon Street, where Bump (Josh Gad) literally 'bumps' into a local beauty (Regina Hall) that refuses to lift up her shirt and lose her dignity for four cents worth of plastic. Check out the revelry below.

First Trailer for Mardi Gras

The first trailer for the comedy Mardi Gras is now available online. Starring Nicholas D'Agostso (Final Destination 5), Josh Gad (The Rocker and Trey Parker and Matt Stone's The Book of Mormon), Danneel Harris (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay), Arielle Kebbel (John Tucker Must Die), and Bret Harrison (personal favorite Grounded for Life) the film follows three college seniors who take a trip to New Orleans' iconic fare and inevitably find sex, booze, and apparently a "feces bomb." I'm not even going to ask. While many of Mardi Gras' above listed stars have moved on to bigger projects, I can't really generate any excitement for the flick mainly for one reason: Carmen Electra is in it. If there's one surefire way to lose my interest in a film, it's to either tell me "Hey, we put a classic horror character you like in space" or "Hey, Carmen Electra is in this movie.

Exclusive 'Mardi Gras: Spring Break' Trailer Premiere

Exclusive 'Mardi Gras: Spring Break' Trailer Premiere
MTV News readers, get ready to head to "Mardi Gras: Spring Break" in this exclusive trailer for the upcoming college flick!

The movie certainly lives up to the premise that the title implies: three college buddies decide to head down to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras for spring break. Mike, played by "Fired Up's" Nicholas D'Agosto (also appearing as the main character in this weekend's fifth "Final Destination" movie), is a whipped boyfriend, but all that is about to change when he runs into his girlfriend down on Bourbon Street.

Bret Harrison (best known for his television gigs on "V," "Breaking In" and "Reaper") plays virgin Scotty, who is in for the time of his life down in Mardi Gras. And Bump, played by "Love and Other Drug's" Josh Gad, is -- for lack of a better word -- a tool. A very, very naked tool.

Take those three

We knew there was a Charlie Sheen straight-to-dvd movie out there just waiting to be released!

You can’t keep Charlie Sheen down when it comes to his work on disc (as we pointed out here a few weeks back)! Sheen will be back on the DVD scene with the upcoming release of Guilty Hearts, a title that we hadn’t heard of before today.

Phase 4 will release Guilty Hearts on DVD on June 28 for the list price of $29.99.

Charlie Sheen and Anna Faris provide the commentary in Spelling Bee, one of the short films in Guilty Hearts.

Here’s the official synopsis of the film from the Phase 4 site: “Follow the lives of nine strangers living worlds apart as they look for love, happiness, success, and friendship against all odds. Carrying the burden of guilt, they must escape their pasts before they can move forward.”

The Hit List of 2010 - Part 1

While The Black List may be getting most of the press from entertainment news circles when it's announced in December, there's another compilation of the best new ideas and writing being offered to Hollywood movie studios and producers. It's called The Hit List (Thl), and it differs from The Black List in one fundamental way: whereas The Black List (Tbl) is a list of the top unproduced screenplays in Hollywood, several of the screenplays on that list have been purchased or are in development.

Take a look at last year's Black List (Part 1 is here, Part 2 is here) and here we are, one year later, and several of the scripts that made the 2009 list will be coming out in 2011 -- or have already been released (like The Social Network or Due Date). The Hit List is different in that it seeks to give attention to spec screenplays -- that is,
