Originally titled Parental Guidance Suggested, Extreme Movie is the very long awaited movie starring Frankie as Chuck, that he filmed a few years ago. For a while it was expected to go straight to DVD and was expected to be out sometime earlier this year. However it never came.
It has now received an ‘R’ rating from the MPAA and subsequently, Dimension Films have decided on a limited release of 50 theatres on December 5th (Which happens to be Frankie’s Birthday). However its very close to the 5th and there is still no trailer or much of anything.
The movie has been bought by Comedy Central so we may see it on TV sometime.
Leading Writer/Producer on Malcolm in the MiddleAl Higgins is supervising a new CBS comedy project called Things A Man Should Never Do Past 30. The project is inspired by Esquire contributing editor David Katz’s humorous book penned as a list of 500 rules of what a man shouldn’t do once he turns 30.
Higgins is set to serve as showrunner if the project is picked up.
Ron Corcillo, co-writer of the Malcolm in the Middle episode Future Malcolm, posted in our FORUM about his new web-based series appearing on Strike.TV called Daryl From OnCar. It stars Bob Clendenin, who appeared in the Hal Quits episode as Garkech. Daryl From OnCar is a tale of a renegade customer service rep who inflicts his will upon the life of an ordinary man.
Earlier this month Jane and family attended a local event to where Jane grew up. Jane is pictured with old school teacher (left) and her mother Evelyn Kaczmarek (right).
[Gloria Bartz] surprise presence at the event blew away that former student, TV actress Jane Kaczmarek, who remembered her former teacher as “Miss Raimann.” Kaczmarek said she hasn’t seen her teacher since second grade and reintroduced her to her parents, Ed and Evelyn Kaczmarek, who were also at the dinner.
Kaczmarek, a well-known TV mom from her years on “Malcolm in the Middle,” was in town with her three kids who were on a school break because of a teacher convention back in Pasadena, Calif. While visiting Grandma and Grandpa, Kaczmarek said, the kids enjoyed bowling, ice skating and playing gin rummy. Her appearance at the Park People dinner was her second fund-raising event during the long weekend home. She says her appearance was a result of an interview she gave in which she noted that one of her favorite childhood memories was playing at Jackson Park near the south side home where she grew up.
There was a large contingent from the Kaczmarek family on hand as well, including her aunt Ruth Wisniewski, Ruth’s husband, Al, and cousins Sherry Walberg and Lynn Steinle and their husbands, Dave Walberg and Tim Steinle.
She spoke to the audience about her Polish heritage, her family, and her fond childhood memories of Milwaukee County Parks.
“To this day, one of my favorite summer memories is listening to the Braves or the Brewers on the car radio and driving home from the band concert at Humboldt Park. Something just said happy, safe summer memories when you were in the car, with the Braves on the radio, coming back from Humboldt Park,”
“My children love Milwaukee. I brought my three children back [on this trip] and it’s kind of their favorite vacation spot, even when it’s 38 degrees and raining,” she said with a laugh.
Jane also recalled being a baton twirler, marching in the South Shore Frolics parade.
“Make the Milwaukee County Parks a real destination and a real part of your heart. My children will thank you, my grandchildren will thank you, and my grandparents from Poland will thank you,” she said, teary-eyed with emotion, to a standing ovation.
Jane joked that she was literally “here” because of the Milwaukee County Parks. Her father Ed Kaczmarek was a lifeguard at Jackson Park pool in 1948 while her mother Evelyn Gregorski, Jane said, “had the illustrious job of checking toes…I don’t know if it was ringworm or athlete’s foot, or what in the heck they were checking for!-but when I was a kid growing up…and even before…when I was a twinkle in my father’s eye, toes had to be checked before you went into the swimming pool. And that was my mother’s job.”
Jane donated her appearance at the Green Gala as well as the $1,000 honorarium she received the previous evening from Fuel Milwaukee to Park People.

This has to be one of the most random Malcolm in the Middle related events of the year. Back in March a French electro group Le Crest held a club night dedicated to Dewey. Also before this they showed their love of Malcolm in the Middle by creating this song, based on the classic scene from season 2 episode 6 Convention when Dewey does a dance and sings the Poupi Poupi/Poupeepou/Boo-Bee (depending on language or understanding) song.
Here is the scene the song is based upon. Keep in mind the above remix is based on the French dubbed episode.
Now, Malcolm in the Middle has many very dedicated fans around the world however for reasons I can’t quite understand Dewey seems to be loved by the French much more than anywhere else and the above scene and song has entered pop culture there.
As we reported last year Chris is starring in a new film Made for Each Other. It’s a comedy which centers around Dan (Masterson), a newlywed who cheats on his wife, Marcy (Bijou Phillips), and decides the only way to redeem himself is for her to cheat back — so he sets off to find the right man for the job.
