Arrested Development star Jeffrey Tambor stopped by a radio station yesterday and announced the Bluth family may be getting back together to make a movie: “I talked to [executive producer] Ron Howard and he hinted that there???s a push to get the movie made.”

As an avid Arrested Develpment fan I’ve decided a movie can go one of two ways:
1) Try and be a mainstream hit, but have to explain every inside joke to the non AD fans thus making it unfunny to both nonAD fans and AD fans alike.
2) Be a very small release flick and pick up right where it left off, without any explaination about Bob Loblaw or other random characters who actual AD audiences would understand.
Personally, I’m pushing for option 2.

Aww! What was the previous pic? I haven’t updated in a while. That’s a pig, by the way. We ate it for Christmas. After it sat out on the table all night in Miami. Ahh, Cubans.

Not, not at all. Venison is much more tendon than regular beef if prepared properly.

No. 19 jujubees says:

For some reason it’s on G4 around here. I guess I just thought that was a channel for gamers. I guess they too can not deny the greatness of AD. I love when they have a marathon.

No. 20 jujubees says:

ohhhhhhhhh stm, that was one of the best episodes ever. I wonder if Tobias will discover himself in the movie?

No. 23 sexyback says:

Tobias should revisit his days as an analrapist for the movie (for you non-fans, don’t get your panties in a twist… it’s a cross between analyst and therapist. HA!).

Aaaahhhhhh! I luv the Bluths! And if the don’t make a movie of AD it will be the biggest little mistake they ever made.

If David Cross doesn’t come on board, they should throw in the towel. Or in this case, cutoffs.

Potential producers, directors, returning cast, and Ron Howard (with his comments on being a good commentator), MAKE THIS HAPPEN! PLEASE!

No. 30 Holla says:

This was the most underrated show ever. Too smart for the general population, assh***s. God I hope they make a movie, it ended much too soon and had so much more potential. And poor Will Arnett hasn’t gotten any gigs better than this and he deserves better! I’d sell a kidney for this movie to happen.

No. 31 SeriousStyle says:

Whitney, it would just be cruel to toy with us. I hope you’re aware of that.

Lindsay: How do you think I feel? Bob Loblaw???s a handsome, professional man and I???m only used to… well, none of those things.
Tobias: Okay, Lindsay, are you forgetting that I was a professional twice over ??? an analyst and a therapist. The world???s first analrapist.
Lindsay: Yes, and you were almost arrested for those business cards.
