    OK, so not 'hardcore' as such, but there is a fight scene. Sorry if this isn't what you had in mind when you carried out your Google search.

  • We throw together a load of Curb promos and somehow that's OK

    TV Video | Ed Williamson | 24th June 2011

    Larry's back. And this time he's in New York. Everyone has known this for months. Think that'll stop us cobbling together some promos and calling it news? We've met before, right?

  • Ricky Gervais' new sitcom creates excuse for 'small person' gags

    TV Video | Matt Looker | 22nd June 2011

    Gervais is returning to TV (have you seen The Invention of Lying?) with a brand new sitcom based on the life of vertically challenged actor Warwick Davis. Let's hope it doesn't come up short! I wonder if it will reach the 'heights' of Gervais' previous telly work? Hahahaha - midgets.

  • Ricky Gervais roasts Hollywood at Golden Globes

    Movie News | Matt | 17th January 2011

    Whatever you think of the giggling comedy hamster, you have to admire a man who publicly mocks A-list stars powerful enough to have him disembowelled live on air, no questions asked.

  • Xmas Competition Bonanza! (Part 2)

    TV Feature | Kirsty Harrison | 7th December 2010

    We promised you more exciting gifts, and much like Santa and his bulging sack of goodies, we always deliver. In fact, were better than Santa, because we don't give a damn how you behave the rest of the year.

  • Cemetery Junction

    Movie Review | Ali | 16th April 2010

    Ricky Gervais goes serious? Hmm. I love The Office, I love Extras and I love Ricky full stop (it's the laugh). But as his career wheel has started turning and the David Brent act has worn thin, Gervais clearly has his eye on the long game - that means cutting back on comic exasperation and showing himself capable of something with soul. Hence Cemetery Junction, Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant's first directorial effort; a coming-of-age comedy set in Gervais' home town.

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 2nd February 2010

    Behold, the first trailer for Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's Cemetery Junction. Do the dance! Do the dance! Hint: he doesn't do the dance.

  • The Invention Of Lying

    Movie Review | Ali | 27th September 2009

    Ricky Gervais went about making his way in Hollywood the right way. He refused to appear in Any Old Comedy and stated he was looking to build a long-term career in movies - he wasn't just out to make a quick buck. Of course, all that went out the window when he called so-so supernatural comedy Ghost Town, "One of the best scripts I've ever read," then shopped himself around town in a series of cameos for best friends Ben Stiller and Christopher Guest. Hardly the hard graft he spoke of.

    Movie Review | | 26th March 2005

    I'm starting to forget what real humans look like, it's been so long since I've seen one. Firstly, the fact that it's half term here at university and the campus is more deserted than a Peter Andre concert doesn't help matters. And secondly, the last three films I've seen have been completely computer generated. The Incredibl...
