"It's always a fun time at the movies when they appear in their own films, but when they team up, the fun increases exponentially and the laughter doesn't let up from start to finish."

The pair will be presented with the award at the convention's Big Screen Achievement Awards ceremony on Thursday, April 18, at The Colosseum at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Vince and Owen are both members of the group of Hollywood funnymen dubbed The Frat Pack, along with Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell and Steve Carell.
