"That was a great dick. That was a great dick. That was a great dick. " The "Workaholics" guys use some unusual interview techniques when Seth Rogen and Zac Efron audition to be the fourth member of their cubicle in a new Comedy Central video. Adam, Blake, and Ders are wild as ever, getting Efron to show them his package and then chanting their approval afterward. "This is the LeBron James of cocks right here," Blake says. Rogen then struts his stuff, getting a much different reaction.

*** (out of four) The laughs trail off in the adulthood vs. frat boys comedy “Neighbors,” and the emotion is plopped on top like bananas added late to pancakes . But still. This is a funny-ass movie. And yes, the use of the term “funny-ass” is completely justified here. Directed by Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “The Five-Year Engagement”) and featuring a better-than-usual use of Zac Efron and Dave Franco, “Neighbors” stars Seth Rogen as the flab taking on the aforementioned muscle.

"So where was I? Nervous? Don't be. This isn't about you. " With that, Ricky Gervais was off and running Sunday as host/roastmaster of the 69th annual Golden Globe awards, putting Hollywood's A-listers on notice but also referencing the hype he's gotten for hosting the ceremony. "Tonight you get the world's biggest comedian, hosting the world's second-biggest awards show on America's third-biggest network," he said in his opening monologue during the ceremony that aired on NBC. "Sorry, it's fourth.

Zac Efron promised to strip off his shirt if he won the Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, and Rita Ora made sure he followed through. "I don't know what to say," Efron told the crowd after his seriously impressive six-pack ran away with the award for his shirtless scenes in "That Awkward Moment. " British singer Ora ripped open his shirt and Efron, at first shy about flashing the audience, took it all the way off and flexed. The crowd at the Nokia Theater in L.A. went wild.

**1/2 (out of four) The people behind “The Guilt Trip” should feel proud, not guilty, for the places the comedy doesn't go. During an eight-day, cross-country road trip, Andy (Seth Rogen) and his overbearing mom, Joyce, (Barbra Streisand) don't, say, accidentally eat pot brownies and stay out all night. They don't hit a deer. The script from “Crazy Stupid Love” writer Dan Fogelman affectionately incorporates some Jewish humor without turning Joyce into a caricature.

You've got to hand it to Disney. When the company bought Lucasfilm and the "Star Wars" franchise, the bigwigs knew they were getting a license to print money. The world of "Star Wars" geekdom already was aflutter with the thought of a new trilogy starting in 2015, but now comes word that the Mouse House also will produce stand-alone films featuring classic "Star Wars" characters. First up will be movies starring Boba Fett and a young Han Solo, ew.com reported. (That sound you heard was of a million geeks emptying their Darth Vader piggy banks.)

Is the stage being set for a bad romance? Earlier this week, Channing Tatum talked about his new onscreen wife in "The Bitter Pill," which recently began production. And it's not the usual suspect either -- his lady love will be played by Rooney Mara. Huh? While Tatum met his real-life wife, Jenna Dewan, on the set of "Step Up," we don't really see the spark here. Check out where Channing and Rooney rate on our rankings of recent odd TV/movie couples, from most to least likely. damoran@tribune.com | @Redeyedana Ryan Gosling and Blow-Up Doll ...

In "Prince Avalanche," an artsy loner (Paul Rudd) and an immature doofus (Emile Hirsch) work together to repair roads in the middle of nowhere. Adapted from an Icelandic film, it's a slow and funny drama that director David Gordon Green says splits the difference between his quieter work ("George Washington," "All the Real Girls," "Snow Angels") and more crass studio comedies ("Pineapple Express," "Your Highness," "The Sitter").  At the James Hotel, the 38-year-old filmmaker - who recently completed...

*** (out of our) Road comedies can go wrong in so many ways. Look at last year's “The Guilt Trip,” which star Seth Rogen essentially has disowned: The characters were crummy travel companions, and broad stabs at humor swung hard and usually missed. As Rogen said, “We shot that movie in the format that plays on airplanes only.” In “We're the Millers,” however, a fake family's wild, drug-smuggling RV excursion becomes occasion for a funny trip with people who are fun to hang with even when they...

** (out of four) Even without James Franco and Danny McBride threatening to ejaculate all over each other, “This is the End” would be an aggressive, misguided demonstration of self-love. A comedy in which Franco, McBride, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and more familiar faces play themselves confronting the apocalypse didn't inherently have to be a Hollywood ego-fest. In brief moments, the film (co-directed and co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the scribes behind the awesome “Superbad” and hilarious...

Dave Franco's a good sport about it, but really, we can all stop asking the actor about his big brother James. He's had enough. “I mean, that happened three years ago,” says the younger Franco, whose new movie “Now You See Me” opened Friday, with a laugh. “More than that. Ten years ago. I love and respect him so much, and when I was first starting out, it would be weird if people weren't drawing the comparisons and mentioning his name every time they brought me up … Maybe two or three years ago, I made a conscious decision to distance...

Apropos of nothing, Craig Robinson is singing R. Kelly's “I Believe I Can Fly.” The Beverly native best known as Darryl Philbin on “The Office” is in the next room prepping for an interview about “Peeples,” his biggest chance at flying - er, being a leading man. (Actually, first he entered the room saying, “All right, RedEye, baby! Now this is for real.”) Obviously, the higher stakes haven't diminished his personality. When prompted, the die-hard Sox fan doesn't hesitate to revive his rivalry with Illinois native and Cubs...

***1/2 (out of four) “You used to get it in your fishnets; now you only get it in your nightdress.” -- Arctic Monkeys, “Fluorescent Adolescent” The crushingly true drama “Take This Waltz” does not include the above song, but both get right to the heart of Margot's (Michelle Williams) problem: She has not lost the love from her 5-year marriage to Lou (Seth Rogen), but the excitement has turned into a routine as familiar as eating the same food for dinner every night.

*** (out of four) For years, Ari Graynor (“Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist,” “The Sitter”) has proven why she deserves far more than mediocre movies which push her considerable lovability - even when playing a drunken mess - to the fringes. At last, the actress gets the shot at stardom she deserves. In both moments of real drama and drama exaggerated for comic effect, Graynor and Lauren Anne Miller (Seth Rogen's wife, who co-wrote the script) lend “For a Good Time, Call” tons of charm, even when the story...
