It's hard to believe that it's been 12 years since writer/director Jared Hess brought NAPOLEON DYNAMITE to audiences, thus forever cementing the characters of Napoleon and Pedro into the annals of cinema.

Brace your boobies for the hilarious new Masterminds trailer

I can see why someone wouldn't take to Jared Hess ' (NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, NACHO LIBRE) brand of humor, but his latest movie looks stupid in the best possible way.

Black will...

Jim Carrey has been having a rough go of it lately.
