A new movie called Bell Bottoms was released on August 19th. The film is about teens trying to save their town from a corrupt business person who wants to close down the local factory. The movie stars rapper-actor Ice Cube and Jamie Kennedy and features guest appearances from Stan Lee and Drew Carey. Bell Bottoms is writing and directed by Kevin Smith, who co-starred in the film as the local drug dealer. The movie is releasing through various platforms like iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube Movies, Vudu, Google Play and Xbox Video.
What is the movie about?
There are so many famous movies out there about gangs and violence or the lifestyles of troubled teens. There is a reason why we make films. I wanted to make a genuinely fun film. The first thing I want many people to notice when they see the movie is not much violence. I wanted to make a movie that my kids would like. It’s not going to be gun-toting or graphic. I wanted to make a comedy, but it isn’t the “It’s a movie for kids” kind of comedy. It is the kind of comedy I like to watch when I want to watch a movie. And the real celebrity of the film is these kids who are trying to save their town.

In any case, hopefully, some of these movies will tickle your funny bone and perhaps serve to take your mind off of the harsh and depressing news that’s been plaguing the media for the last few months. The Academy can’t possibly count all the movies that have come out since Oscar weekend, but hopefully, they’ll have a few to include in the “Best Of” list. These are some of my personal favourites, so let me know yours in the comments section below.
