Arrested Development : Database Project

Hello Arrested Developers,

Since many days I've got an idea and I think it could be interesting for AD fans.

So there is my idea :

Like a lot of AD fans I like to collect videos, images and some other stuff about Arrested Development but it's difficult to find everything on internet. On a website/a blog or a forum we could put all these things we have about AD like interviews, making of, scan of press articles, etc...

If you're interested to set up this project with me, you can contact me here : or let a comment here, you can also send me your contribution directly.

So what do you think ?

Year One - Cera & Cross

Year One with Michael Cera and David Cross is in theather since June 19th and the critics aren't very good. I've made for you a selection of critics from the website The Metascore is 37 out of 100, that's mean "Generally Negative Reviews".

80 The New York Times Manohla Dargis
A thoroughly, sometimes gaggingly broad and sly conceptual laugh-in.

75 San Francisco Chronicle Mick LaSalle
Year One has one joke, but it's a good one, played for many variations over the course of an often very funny comedy.

67 Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman
This is just silliness run mildly wild.

63 Baltimore Sun Michael Sragow
At best it's a bit like Mel Brooks' "The History of the World Part I" (except Ramis stops somewhere in Genesis); at worst it's like a Scary Movie-type parody of John Huston's "The Bible."

50 Variety Ronnie Scheib
Lacks seismic guffaws but elicits many mild smiles.

50 USA Today Claudia Puig
The humor, largely centered around bodily functions and bathroom habits, is almost exclusively sophomoric.

42 The Onion (A.V. Club) Josh Modell
Year One isn't dreadful; it just isn't nearly as funny as it hopes to be.

40 The Hollywood Reporter Frank Scheck
A lot of comedic talent founders in this new Harold Ramis comedy that doesn't exactly recall his glory days of "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day."

38 New York Post Kyle Smith
Its script isn't worth the papyrus it's inscribed on.

33 Christian Science Monitor Peter Rainer
The people who made Year One seem to think that all you have to do to make a hit comedy is get a bunch of jokesters together. But where are the jokes?

30 Washington Post Michael O'Sullivan
A lowbrow, only fitfully amusing comedy.

25 Boston Globe Ty Burr
Any good will the movie generates, though, is grated right back off by Black, whose obnoxiousness has lost whatever charm it once possessed.

20 New York Daily News Joe Neumaier
During all of the film’s oh-so-long 97 minutes, Year One, barely earns a snicker.

12 Premiere Robert Calvert
We loved this movie the first three times we saw it, when it was called "Life of Brian," "Wholly Moses," and "History of the World Part 1."

0 LA Weekly Robert Wilonsky
Unbearably painful from shrugging start to outtakes-laden finish, Harold Ramis’ half-assed, hare-brained return to writing and directing makes Mel Brooks’ equally muddled, soporific "History of the World, Part 1" look downright majestic by comparison.

Michael Cera: What I've Learned (Esquire)

New few words about the movie in Esquire, Michael Cera talks a little bit about it but once again there is no real news...

Arrested Development never felt safe. Even the first season, we did thirteen episodes, and we thought we'd never do a back nine. So I never thought in a million years we'd get to make three seasons. I was happy we got that far. I thought it was really good, and I'm really proud of it. I don't think we made a bad episode.

Well, maybe. People want to make a movie. There are articles on the Internet that center me out as the reason it's not being made. I don't know where that stuff comes from. It could always fall through, but I think everyone wants to make it.

I got recognized from doing the show once in a while, by a type of person I could spot. I could tell when someone was an Arrested Development fan. They were normally very polite, and it was intimate. It was like a club. They would say things like, "Can you believe it? We couldn't save it." There was a real sense of teamwork. But when Superbad came out, there was no way to know. It was the hugest thing I'd ever done. Suddenly I had drunk guys coming up to me, high-fiving me, grabbing me, which was different from having a nice conversation with somebody about this show we both loved.

The New Jersey Scene ?

There is the update that I've been waiting all night !

corpse_was_a_good_man told us a little bit more about this famous scene. So I let you read the post he left on IMDB :

"So we showed up at the theater. Our job was to be audience members giving a standing ovation behind will arnett delivering a line (that no one could hear)

Mitch was on set the entire time... for most of the 5 hours we were there we did some incedental crowd shots and multiple shots to be composited for audience cloning..

No cameras were allowed, couldn't get much for you guys. I really only witnessed 30 seconds of what will be the final movie.

Anyway, feel free to ask any questions.. (arnett was the only original cast member on set, just to set that straight right now, and i didn't recognize anyone else who was being focused on."

That description of the scene brings me to my first idea, for me it's not a scene shot for the movie but more for a commercial. It's seems to be the most plausible idea...

New Jersey "filming" Update.

According to corpse_was_a_good_man on the IMDB movie board, the shouting is really happening on June 17.
The whole cast will be in New Jersey for the scene who's called "Watching a play".

On one side every person of the cast who have already talked about the movie say that there is no script "yet".

So what can be this "filming" ? In my own opinion it's a shouting for a teaser who will announce the official preparation of the movie. We can always imagine the whole cast sitting in a cinema watching the Arrested Development serie and the Ron Howard voice-over will say "Get Arrested on summer 2010 !".
Ok ok I'm actually dreaming a little bit, so let's consider all that stuff like rumors and just wait for more news because I'm very skeptical.

Our best hope it's to call Gene Parmesan for an investigation !

Interview : David Cross & Michael Cera talks about the movie !

In the MTV Movies Blog, on June 15, David Cross gives us a really short interview about the movie. There is no real news in that interview, Tobias you don't blow hard this time !

“I know what most people know,” Cross said, “which is there’s definitely a movie planned. A script has been ordered. Everyone’s on board to do it.”

“I think they’re just working out the deals — which, you got eleven cast members and writers and producers and all that — so I think that’ll take a little time, as it usually does. And hopefully we’ll be shooting something before the decade’s out.”

“There was an overall story that I’m not at privilege to tell you what [Mitch is] working on. The script could change from that point. I will tell you it’s a f–king great idea and I’m very excited about it. It really does seem like a logical next step from the show to the movie. If that idea is followed through, I think it’s pretty cool.”

You can read the whole article here : MTV Movies Blog

On Michael Cera also talks about the movie, but once again there is not big information in this interview, just a point of view...

“I think it will. Yeah. I don’t see why it wouldn’t. I don’t think it will happen for awhile.”

I then said a lot of the cast members have said Mitch is working on the script and maybe you’d be shooting later this year.

Michael then replied, “But there is no rush. I think he should take his time. I know it means a lot to Mitch. There is no rush, really. I don’t think.”

Just a funny poster I've found on Google.

Arrested Development Documentary : Final Trailer

Who ?


Rumor : Sit Down Shut Up back in June ?

According to Mitch Hurwitz, Sit Down Shut Up isn't officialy cancelled and the show will be back in June.

But the real question is when ? Fox didn't say a word about this return...

Read the IGN article :

May 19, 2009 - Don't let the fact that you didn't see it on FOX's schedule for next season fool you. Mitch Hurwitz would like viewers to know Sit Down, Shut Up is, in his words, "Not dead!"

Last night I spoke to Arrested Development creator Hurwitz at the FOX Upfront party, where he was in attendance to support Brothers, a new comedy he is executive producing. I mentioned Sit Down, Shut Up to Hurwitz, asking if we had seen the last of the show – the animated series was pulled from the air last week, before airing the fifth and final installment of what was intended to be its spring run.

Said Hurwitz, "No, actually! There is that presumption in the press, because they moved us to 7:00, because of Sweeps month and we weren't getting numbers good enough to stay on [at 8:30]. They moved us to 7:00, but then our content was too racy, so they had to pull us off of 7:00."

However, Hurwitz revealed, "We're coming back in June at 8:30 for the run of them. I'm going to lose all my credibility here, but they're good. They get really funny." Hurwitz was well aware of the expectations the show had going in, which reunited him with three of his Arrested Development stars, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Henry Winkler, but told me they never set out to make a show that would feel like Arrested, particularly since it was animated.

"The first couple [episodes] got trashed, particularly by the blogs and a lot of people said, 'It's nowhere near as good as Arrested Development ,'" noted Hurwitz, adding with a smile, "It's like, it's not trying to be, you know what I mean? You know what they didn't say about Family Guy? Nobody said, 'This is nowhere near as good as M*A*S*H! Why isn't this any better than Ally McBeal?!'"

"There's some really clever, funny things there and I think it's an acquired taste," Hurwitz said of Sit Down, Shut Up. "I think it's much like Arrested was at the start for a lot of people. But we'll see. If we get any numbers, we can stay in business."

So how many episodes will we see this summer? Hurwitz told me, "We've only aired four of them, so we have eight more."

As for what happens beyond that, Hurwitz remarked, "We've got a shot!", saying it was a funny situation for him these days, because, "I'm still working on them and everyone's writing that the show's cancelled and it's dead. And I'm still rewriting them and mixing them! It's crazy in so many ways."

So what do you think about that ?
