The lowbrow comedy "Lost and Found in Armenia" so shamelessly wallows in its broad humor, silly contrivances and retrograde stereotypes it almost dares you to be annoyed. Mission accomplished. A kind of pale, reverse twist on "The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming," the movie finds Bill (Jamie Kennedy), a lovelorn American vacationing in Turkey, crash-landing across the border in Armenia after, let's just say, a highly improbable parasailing fiasco. The nuttiness escalates once the hapless Bill wakes up amid a group of hostile, dim-witted villagers absurdly convinced he's a Turkish spy (the film offers a slapdash history lesson on Armenian-Turkish rancor)

While the major Hollywood studios claim that the profit outlook for Internet offerings is too sketchy to give writers a percentage, an increasing number of big-media veterans are investing in the Web. The latest example is MyBlueCollar.com, a website launched Wednesday that has dozens of professionally made humor videos headlined by stars Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and the comic known as Larry the Cable Guy, Dan Whitney. The site is funded by the comics; Will Ferrell's FunnyOrDie .
