Super Fun Night: Internet Dating

             Kimmie Boubier and Friends try Internet dating in an all new Super Fun Night                                      © 2013 Nine Entertainment Co.

Rebel Wilson and Co seem to be settling into their roles and accents a bit more now with tonight’s’ Super Fun Night’s second episode (actually third when you count in the original pilot).  Rebel’s American accent is less knives down a blackboard and more Madonna flitting between London and Los Angeles.

So, tonight’s episode is entertaining!  In an attempt to widen their social circle, Kimmie, Helen-Alice and Marika try internet dating (involving a new three on three format) and with some online profile enhancement from Kimmie, the girls find themselves on a date in a trendy club (where food is served in jars) but not as who they would like to be (insert Russian accent here)

There’s some funny interaction between the girls and their dates as they try to keep up the charade, a kicker of a line from Kimmie involving the TV show Pretty Little Liars and keep an eye out for a magical little dance right at the end involving Kimmie and a glass jar!

Super Fun Night airs tonight 8pm on Channel 9


Sharknado Bites into Aussie Screens

Ian Ziering and Tara Reid star in Sharknado

So as to not blindly lead anyone into thinking they’ll be in for an edge-of-your-seat masterpiece film, Sharknado will never win any awards (well, any of the good kind).  The premise of the film should clear that up for everyone:

“When a freak hurricane swamps Los Angeles, thousands of sharks terrorize the waterlogged populace. And when the high-speed winds form tornadoes in the desert, nature’s deadliest killer rules water, land, and air”

Yep, a movie about a shark filled tornado.

So let’s talk Sharknado.

You’ve got 90210 star-cum-Chippendale Ian Ziering in the lead.  He’s supported by Tara Reid (nuff’ said) and then there’s former Baywatch actor Jaason Simmons playing Australian character Bazz Hogan.

There’s some overtly dodgy special effects and while the acting is not gag-worthy-bad, it’s clear in some scenes, most of the actors involved may have approached this with a tongue-in-cheek method.

That said, this made-for-tv movie has clearly eared it’s cult status even before it aired in the USA.  The social media buzz behind this little film was nothing less than impressive and when you have a movie concept as ridiculous as this, it was open season on Twitter, which saw users send the movies title into one of the top trending topics upon it’s premiere – a feat never achieved by a made-for-tv movie.

Sharknado is premiering tonight on Foxtel’s Universal channel.  Perfect.  Friday night with a movie that’s made for a drinking game.  Apparently, every time Tara Reid is shown on screen simply for her bosoms, you take a hearty gulp.  Another one to take note of is having a drink every time a shark is killed by something other than a gun (spears, chainsaws and bare hands all count towards a drink)

The best bit about the whole thing?  Shaknado has already been pegged for a sequel.

Sharknado premieres tonight on Foxtel.  Universal channel.  8:30pm.
