Trailer Park: “The Switch,” “Lottery Ticket,” “Vampires Suck,” “Piranha 3D”

We’re just a few weeks away from September, which is terrifying because where the hell did the time go? But also nice because all the hooligans will be back in school and, at least between the hours of 8 and 3 p.m., the streets will be safe.

I’ll admit that the Black Eyed Peas joke made me chuckle, but it just seems silly to parody a movie that is already so ridiculously silly half the time. That paper-cut scene actually happened! That’s not parody. That’s just mimicking. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
