Dr. Teeth Covers Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Jeff Goldblum Used to Be Shirtless: Links You Need to See

By

There was always a suspicion that Dr. Teeth — lead singer of Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem, the house band on The Muppets — was just biding his time during his residency on The Muppet Show. With his purple hat and gold tooth, this was clearly a worldly muppet who had been there and done that, and The Muppet Show gig to him was surely just another paycheck. The A.V. Club brought to our attention a new Adam Schleichkorn mash-up that runs with our suspicions of what Dr. Teeth would really like to be doing: covering Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

Bombs Away: 12 of Film’s Most Welcome Failures

By

We try not to make a habit of cheering failure (really, honestly, promise, we don’t), but we couldn’t help getting a little warm and runny inside when Battleship laid a big egg at the beginning of the summer, since the movie beat is filled with tales of great movies that no one sees, and terrible turkeys that make a fortune.

The first month of the year is traditionally the dumping ground for Hollywood studios, the month in which they unload the films that aren’t quality enough for the Oscar-courting fall, but not commercial enough for the lucrative holiday, spring, and summer seasons. January is where bad movies go to die, and where studios hope we won’t notice them. They’re usually right; viewers either tend to catch up on the prestige pictures that are going into wider release, or just stay at home and watch football. But our nation’s film critics, fat and happy after the holiday feast of smart, highbrow entertainment, are often subjected to the sugar crash of January dogs, and as a result, their reviews often pack a little bit of extra vitriol. After the jump, we’ve assembled the ten worst movies released in the month of January — according to the reliable aggregators at Rotten Tomatoes — along with a few choice words from the scribes who sat through them.
