Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
We've all found ourselves making the Friend Zone Face when a girl shoots us down with some variation of "I love you...but not like that." For most of us, it's a bump in an otherwise smooth road--but what if your entire life was being trapped the Friend Zone?
That's the hellish question raised by "Ladies Man: A MADE Movie" (based on the MTV series "MADE"). It's the story of Toby, a guy whose shoulder girls cry on...to complain about guys whom they actually have sex with. We brought you the trailer yesterday, and here's another taste of what to expect when the movie airs tonight at 9/8c on MTV.
Quentin Tarantino's movies are pretty much for guys. Sure, "Kill Bill" and "Jackie Brown" feature badass women, but Tarantino understands the male psyche like few other filmmakers. Such is the case with MTV Movie Awards nominee "Django Unchained." But even though it's geared toward guys, not all the characters follow Guy Code. Here's an inventory of who upholds it...and who completely breaks it.
1. Django (Jamie Foxx)
The titular slave is a fiercely courageous man able to overcome his brutal past while keeping a cool head and still seeing the good in (certain) white people. Sold away from his beloved wife Broomhilda, Django's one goal is to make it back to her…though if he rights a few wrongs along the way, all the better.
2. Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz)
This German dentist and bounty hunter is a deeply moral follower of Guy Code who earns his living from rescuing slaves and killing wrongdoers. (Yeah, he hasn't exactly made a buck from dentistry in awhile.) When the good doctor hears Django's sad tale of Broomhilda, he becomes determined to mentor the man and help reunite the lost lovers. What a guy!
The MTV series "MADE" is all about people transforming their lives. Nothing can transform your life more than learning Guy Code, of course, which is what makes us excited to watch "Ladies Man: A MADE Movie."
It's the story of a loser trapped in the Friend Zone, who becomes determined--upon arriving at college--to win the Mr. Olympus Pageant, his golden ticket to convincing ladies that he's a stud. The competition is fierce (specifically, the dick frat boy wearing a necklace above), and our hero doesn't have much time to amp up his physical fitness, knowledge of women, social skills and every other quality a guy needs to get laid.
Check out the trailer, and then watch the movie Tuesday at 9/8c on MTV.
There's a good chance you've so far avoided the 2013 MTV Movie Awards nominee "Magic Mike." Buff, scantily-clad male strippers prancing around to "It's Raining Men" probably just isn't your thing. (Well, not much, anyway.) And, that's fine, but you're actually depriving yourself of a great movie with at least five good reasons to watch it.
1. Steven Soderbergh
You've surely enjoyed his past work. From "Out of Sight" to "Traffic" and the "Ocean's Eleven" series, his movies always feature top-notch directing and cinematography; the dark and moody "Magic Mike" is no different.
2. Guy Code Values
"Magic Mike" also features a story that honors loyalty and friendship above all...even if Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer are frequently exhibiting these values while oiled up in bikini briefs. Hey, at least it'll get your girlfriend in the mood.
It's a classic move for guys: You take an object, any object--a cucumber, a two-liter soda bottle, a misshapen gourd--and hold it to your crotch, as if to say, "Check it out, it's my dick," and your friends laugh, even though it's been done hundreds of times before.
It never gets old. Want proof? At last year's MTV Movie Awards, Joe Manganiello held the Golden Popcorn up to his package near a swooning Elizabeth Banks. It was a bold move, but well-received. Who will have the guts and charm to pull it off this year? Here are five trophy-humping hopefuls.
If you thought it was creepy watching Seth MacFarlane's Ted at the Oscars, you're totally unprepared to watch him act out the first Golden Popcorn golden shower. After the "dirty Fozzie," he's unstoppable.
2. Taylor Lautner
Nominated for Best Shirtless Performance, Lautner continues to be a "Twilight" sex symbol. But maybe he's ready to make the jump from teen heartthrob to Hollywood bad boy. What better way to do it than by wearing the award as a codpiece, skeeving out his entire teenage girl fan base who'll think he's "soooo immature"?
Film explosions rarely get the respect they deserve. Cine-snobs say they're trifling and extravagant, included only to appeal to those Neanderthals who giggle when they see things go boom. Well, we are those Neanderthals! And we can't wait for Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, because there are a bunch of excellent movies nominated across the 13 categories, some of which include 2012's best on-screen explosions.
Since big balls of fire don't yet warrant their own category on the show, we've taken it upon ourselves to assemble this list of nominees in GIF form. As Beavis would say, "Fire! Fire! Fire! Fire!"
Movie quotes are a way of life for most of us. They're a common cultural language, and the period at the end of a sentence. Nothing caps off a moment like a line from "Anchorman" or "Goodfellas." But some guys can be irresponsible, actually ruining great movies by endlessly quoting them. Here are some films you should stop quoting before your friends stop inviting you to hang out.
It's April Fools' Day, so we feel compelled to honor the Crown Prince of Pranks, Bill Murray. He's part actor, part comedian and part mythological creature who appears in the strangest places, doing the greatest things.
1. Bill Murray Rolls Up On The Club, RZA And GZA In Tow
He showed up at the Austin bar Shangri-La during the SXSW festival with a quarter of the Wu-Tang Clan. And then volunteered his bartender services, only serving shots of tequila, regardless of what anyone actually ordered. Let's be real though: If you're lucky enough to have Bill Murray pour you a drink, you just drink it and don't ask questions.
Like the tuxedo, the leather jacket never goes out of style. It can be dressed up with tortoise shell frames or down with a bloody undershirt. It's been famously worn by musicians, athletes, cowboys, young soldiers in love, Arctic explorers, Newsies, bookies, hit men, stunt men, Indiana Jones, James Dean, Luke Perry, mobsters, evil masterminds, literary misfits, brawlers with hairy knuckles, fat cats with cigars, the Planet Hollywood crew, Wu-Tang, Vegas snakes and various Tarantino lowlifes.
In its honor, here's five leather jackets from pop-culture to dust off and wear tomorrow.
Normally, having a job blows...but if you're a blogger assigned to interview porn star James Deen, then your workday's pretty fascinating. (What? You thought we were setting up a joke with "job" and "blows"? Nah.)
Here's the craziest stuff we discovered on the set of Deen's new movie "Saving Humanity," which also stars the smoking hotties Andy San Dimas, Celeste Star, Riley Reid and Sativa Verte.
1. They Have A Script
A pizza delivery guy might not have much dialogue, but feature-length adult films require scripts that can exceed 100 pages. The producers often release a hardcore version of the film and an R-rated version for those twisted guys who get off on plot points.
2. Fluffers Don't Exist
Apparently this career field is an urban legend. (No, it's not a victim of the U.S. economy--it never existed.) If the male stars have a performance issue, they just pop Viagra or similar drugs.
