Robert Hoffman steals show in “Aliens in the Attic”

Well it seems that the Hollywood critics are figuring out what we already knew.  Robert Hoffman is a comedic genius.  Check out the praise he receives for his alien-controlled, kung fu fighting, laugh inducing performance in the new family comedy “Aliens in the Attic”.  Good job Robert!

Robert Hoffman under the alien's thumb.



 “…the movie belongs to Robert Hoffman. Playing Tisdale’s two-faced boyfriend, Hoffman, a classically trained dancer, literally throws himself into the scenes in which the aliens use him as their personal remote-controlled errand boy. The extraterrestrials get title billing, but Hoffman steals the show.” – Glenn Whipp,  The LA Times

“Robert Hoffman, who… seems to have an incredible gift for physical comedy.” – Joshua Tyler, CinemaBlend.com

 “Responsible for evoking most of the laughter here, Hoffman (Step Up 2 the Streets) shows off his exceptional ability for physical comedy during hilarious sequences when “Ricky” is taken over by the mind-control thingamajig. Hoffman’s dance training certainly must have come in handy for this role. But he’s also quite funny in scenes where his character secretly mocks his girlfriend’s dad (Nealon), makes belittling remarks to her brother (Jenkins), and finally realizes what’s been happening.” – Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk

Hoffman is a major find. Previously best known for the Step Up sequel, he gives a physical comedy performance here that shows great promise, as he spends most of the movie subject to the whims of an alien video-game controller that makes him literally bend over backward to humiliate himself.” – Luke Thompson, E! Online

“Hoffman’s wild contortions had the young tykes in our audience convulsing with laughter.” – Pete Hammond, BoxOffice Magazine


“The sole bright spot is Robert Hoffman, who has the smarmy smirk of a young Jay Mohr, and is more than game as Tisdale’s boyfriend (and eventual alien punching bag). Poor as the jokes are (they mostly involve Hoffman falling down, or getting hit in the face) he dives into them with gusto…he’s the best special effect in the picture.” – Stephen Whitty, The Newark Star-Ledger


“In the film’s best gag… Hoffman, a dancer and actor, contorts, flips, twists and jerks his body all over the set.”– Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter


“some genuinely funny physical comedy … by Doris Roberts as a doting grandmother who becomes a high-flying, butt-kicking martial artist and Robert Hoffman as Bethany’s sleazy overage boyfriend. Latter is especially hilarious as his jerky character becomes a herky-jerk puppet.” – Joe Leydon, Variety


 “Hoffman steals the picture…”– Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

Russian models, big birds, and money

Bleep. Bleep. I roll off the cushion and onto the floor. Another night spent on the couch. I couldn’t even make it up twenty steps and down the corridor to my room. I forgot to charge my cell phone because I fell asleep and will have to charge it at work in the AD’s room because I have only one outlet near my desk and my computer will die if not plugged in for five minutes.

I can only hope Andrea doesn’t need to send me any urgent text messages today. “Russian models, big birds, and money” and “Go home”, just another day at AA Films. Up late baking cupcakes again. I figured we needed a team moral booster, considering the stress level in the office has been at the orange mark all week. Nothing screams stress-free like a devils food cupcake with AA Films colored M&Ms on them.

Boyband arrived this week. I am happy to say, Ryan Pinkston’s mother and Andrea our planning our wedding. The anticipated meeting between Ryan and I involved him in rainbow suspenders and a belly shirt and me getting ready to audition a man, for what would later sound like a porn tape.

Anyway, Ryan is adorable, and I’m thinking this may work out, considering I am in constant communication with his mother. Speaking of communication, I have had the privilege of dealing with a certain phone company, for the past three weeks and have yet to fix the phone lines or the internet. But hey, I should be grateful, we now have two phone lines, oh wait, they’re all static!

Lesson of the day: How to send a package:
Step 1. Call a company to pick-up a package.
Step 2: Tell operator to pick this package up at specified address.
Step 3: Make sure someone will be there all day.
Step 4: Wait for the phone operator to say, “okay, someone will come by.”
Step 5: Confirm the address, number, and pick-up time with the operator.
Step 6: Make sure everything checks.
Step 7: Pick-up does not occur.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 1-6 with Step 7 as result.
Step 9: Repeat Steps 1-6 with Step 7 and 8 as result.
Step 10: Call a certain phone company to complain because clearly you can’t get through to the shipping company either and while the shipping company was having trouble processing your request the three times you made it, you were listening in on alien signals from the phone line, which still has yet to be fixed!

I think I will bake cupcakes again tomorrow as I find we are slowly moving into the red zone.

Rob Russ

There was a local kid who auditioned for We Got The Beat. His name was Rob Russ. He was awesome. I wasn’t sure where exactly he fit in the movie, so in true AA FILMS fashion, Andrea and I decided to create a role for him. He’s super funny and he will stand out in the movie. I’m wondering what audiences will think about our cast. We have a good number of roles being cast out of Hollywood, but we are also casting the majority of supporting roles locally. What do people want to see? All known talent? A mixture? I love seeing new people on screen. It makes me feel like I am doing more than just making a movie, I’m also giving unknown talent a chance to do something they love.
