Hell Baby
There’s barely a movie inside of “Hell Baby,” the directorial debut of Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. In some ways, this feels like a relief: the two comedians, best known for “Reno 911,” have developed a reputation at the studios as script doctors for hire, though one look at the final products (“Night At The Museum,” “Herbie: Fully Loaded”) suggests a fidelity to structure and propriety, and only the illusion of laughs. Maybe a shucking of structure was all that was needed: “Hell Baby” seems to prove that their previous screenwriting gigs were acts of condescension at heart, and that these guys couldn’t have a stronger disdain for moving a plot forward.

Barring a “Shaun of the Dead” or two the horror-comedy sub-genre has recently mostly been littered with Wayans-involved stuff like the “Scary Movie” franchise or this year’s abysmal “A Haunted House.” Now “Reno 911!” and “Night At The Museum” (really) writing-acting duo Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are making their entry into the pantheon with their directorial debut “Hell Baby.” A new red-band trailer has arrived below so make sure your boss isn’t looking and check it out.

Screenwriting duo and comedy mainstays Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon have increasingly become Hollywood's box office saviors, supplying the scripts for both “Night at the Museum” films as well as “The Pacifier,” and their success has allowed them a “one-for-them, one-for-us” status among the studios. Their more personal work has seen less fanfare however, ranging from the executive-mangled (“Let's Go To Prison”) to holistically mangled (“Reno 911: Miami”), but news arrives today that both men have decided to use their clout on their first co-directorial effort.
