I sat through Dewey Cox and told myself that I’d never see it again. However, that soon changed after a loved one decided to buy the movie when it came out on disc and I saw it again. You know, I thought, it’s not so bad. Just really silly.

I received Stepbrothers as one of my May Netflix movies and laughed sidesplittingly hard throughout the whole thing. I thought, maybe it’s just this funny because I’m a Will Ferrell fan. But no, there was something about the way one of the other character acted that really got me.

John C. Reilly. He’s your man when you want to watch something mindless and utterly ridiculous.

But today I watched the HD trailer for “Cirque du Freak,” Reilly’s latest movie, and I was a little bit disappointed. It didn’t seem silly…well maybe a little. The fact that he plays a role as a vampire in a freak show is silly indeed, but not like the other loveable goofball characters he has played in the past.

The movie revolves around a young boy who goes to a freak show, meets and vampire (played by John C. Reilly), and then decides he wants to become one and continue his life performing in the freak show. Strange, no?

Cirque du Freak is slated to come out October 23, 2009, so I guess we’ll have to wait a while to see how things turn out with this film. Check out all the movie details at IMDB.com.

All I’m saying is that I want to see more silliness from John C. Reilly. I crave it like a vampire craves blood…at a freak show.
