The comedy will be available on Blu-ray and DVD October 22 , but our friends at 20th Century Home Entertainment have a copy available to give away to one of our readers. All you need to do is tell us which of the following is your favorite of the following films and why. Tell us no later than 11:59 p.m. Monday, October 14. The decision of the ComicMix judges will be final and the contest is open only to United States and Canadian readers only. The Internship reunited two of the central members of the frat pack, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. The guys from the frat pack have been creating comedic gold for years now. In honor of the home entertainment release of the newest frat pack film, let’s take a look back at some of the greatest moments from the pack. In The Internship, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson team up to crash the digital world in this laugh-out-loud buddy comedy you’ve been searching for! Trying to reboot their obsolete careers, old-school salesmen Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson) talk their way into an internship program at the state-of-the-art Google campus, vying for a handful of spots among tech-savvy college students who are half their age and twice as smart. The competition is fiercely funny as Billy and Nick break all the rules in a hilarious quest to land their dream jobs! Wedding Crashers Wedding Crashers, the film that proved Wilson and Vaughn had perfect comedic chemistry, brought the laughter and good times. To this day, men still dream of crashing a wedding with John and Jeremy. Maybe they can’t fulfill their dreams, but everyone can rest assured knowing the rules of wedding crashing; “blend in by standing out” to “be gone by the sunrise.” Zoolander Zoolander is certainly one of the most memorable frat pack movies with Will Ferrell playing a crazed fashion designer and Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller taking on the role of two pretty boys. The Blue Steel look developed by Derek Zoolander will go down in movie history. Wilson and Stiller were hilarious as they portrayed self-centered models obsessed with perfecting their hair and their runway walk. Anchorman Ron Burgundy is arguably the best character that Will Ferrell has ever played. He is a legend, a ladies man, and a role model for friends like Brick and Champ. In a moment of sheer brilliance, Anchorman brought together six members of the frat pack for a street fight between anchormen. Five of the frat pack guys were representing various news channels and carrying weapons such as a trident, a wooden post, and a chain. Old School  Many people consider Old School to be the golden ticket that brought the frat pack together and placed them on the map as the big names in comedy. Ferrell, Vaughn, and Wilson were hilarious as they went back to their glory days and reminded the audience why college is exactly where you want to be. This classic comedy is one that can be enjoyed for generations to come. Dodgeball Who doesn’t love the idea of watching grown men and women dressed in uniforms and playing intense games of dodgeball? (Especially if two of those men are Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller.) In the movie that taught us the five D’s of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge, we got to witness another perfect moment between members of the frat pack. Dodgeball may have only had two members of the pack, but it definitely makes the list of the greatest frat pack movies! Originally published on ComicMix as Win a Copy of The Internship

Wes Anderson‘s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty continues to look amazing. I’m fairly certain the last time I was this enthused for a Ben Stiller film was roughly 1992. It’s already screened to critical acclaim, so I think we’re in for a good time with this pic. The post New ‘Walter Mitty’ Trailer Looks Super-Fun appeared first on Robot Mutant.

Dustin posted the first trailer for the worrisome adaptation of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty some months ago. The name "Ben Stiller" did not exactly inspire confidence in the project, and Dustin found himself wondering if the appeal of that first trailer might be nothing more than the inescapable pull of the music by Of Monsters and Men. The second trailer is out now, and I think we can say more comfortable: It's just the music. Here's the trailer, which manages to give away the entire plot of the movie in fine form, and notwithstanding what could be an epic heel turn by Adam Scott, it looks really bad. See here's the problem with it. It completely misses the point of the short story. Yeah, I know it seems to draw more on the film adaptation from 1947 that gets put on top 100 lists of movies, but I just don't care for a couple of reasons. First, it's been 66 years, stand on your own. Second, the movie missed the point too, and was lambasted by James Thurber, the story's author. I heartily acknowledge a complete bias towards the author on matters like this. In the story, the fantasies are not real. This movie give Mitty a real adventure to go along with his fantasy. The point of the story was that he not only made everything up, but that each scenario that plays out does so by spinning the mundane surroundings into the fantastic. He doesn't look at a fancy picture of the Himalayas and imagine he's there, no, Walter pulls on gloves and is transported into a hospital, pulling on surgical gloves. He leans against a wall smoking, and is transported to a firing squad, having his last smoke when lined up against the wall. The story's magic is in the way Mitty transforms the mundane into the fantastic, not that he looks at pictures of the fantastic and pastes himself in there. And the second part is the heartbreaking irony of the tale: even in his fantasies, Mitty always loses. That's the real heart to this story, that the escape is not an escape at all. But you know, staple some thoughtful music on there and it'll probably get nominated for something.
