Wrong Reel

In anticipation of the theatrical and digital release of his new animated feature film Cheatin', Wrong Reel sits down with Indie Animaton legend Bill Plympton and executive producer Adam Rackoff to discuss Plympton's career to date and where it is headed. Full disclosure, Wrong Reel co-host James Hancock is one of the executive producers on Cheatin' so any notion of objectivity is completely abandoned. Cheatin' begins a nationwide tour on 4/3/15 (see www.cheatinmovie.com for screenings) and will be available on Vimeo On Demand 4/21/15.

Will Ferrell's latest outing "Get Hard" (directed by Etan Cohen) might not be his strongest vehicle but we used the film as an excuse to dig into the career highlights of one of the greatest comedic performers of his generation. Kevin Hart manages to shine in the movie as well, but we're all hoping he and Ferrell get hooked up with better material in the future.
