Last week, I wrote a piece about Taran Killam being the future of "SNL." So of course in the Charles Barkley-hosted episode, which featured 13 segments, Killam was barely seen.
This was Charles Barkley's third time as host. He's had his memorable moments - like his Jay Mohr written 1993 monologue in which he plays basketball against Barney the dinosaur - and I'm sure that he's fun to be around, but, like most athletes, leaves something to be desired as a host. Last night was no different (But he is a lot better than most.)
After the 2005-2006 season of "Saturday Night Live," five cast members -- Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Finesse Mitchell, Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz ...
Michele Bachmann had a wild ride in 2011, from her embarrassingly off-center Tea Party response to her last gasp attempt to rebrand herself as "America's Iron Lady."
As the awards season brings a renewed -- and mostly well-deserved -- attention to the film Bridesmaids, I feel it might be worth revisiting.
Over the life of this here Relevancy Poll, no week has been harder to rank than Jimmy Fallon's show from this past weekend. With a show that featured not just Fallon, but Tracy Morgan, Chris Kattan, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Hartio Sanz and Amy Poehler - yeah, we're basically dealing with 21 cast members fighting for airtime. So take this week with a grain of salt because, really, nobody had a great week. Well, actually, I can make the case for one cast member:
Last night's SNL wasn't listed as an official reunion show of the 2002-2003 season, but, yeah, that was a reunion show.
Apparently, posing nude -- or mostly nude -- in a mens' magazine is still some sort of rite of passage for female entertainers, and there has been a spate of female comedians stripping down recently. We have to admit, as fans of comedy and women in comedy especially, my fellow editors and I die a little bit every time this happens.
In September, I wrote about the transition of the generations between actors and how we're at a moment where we can see it happening.
Paul is a comedy adventure film about two British sci-fi geeks who stumble across an alien. Recently, Paul's star and co-writer Simon Pegg, along with the director Greg Mottola, sat down to talk about the film.
I continue to be nostalgic for comedy that doesn't require constant profanity or a surfeit of fart gags to succeed, that relies instead on subtle, clever scripts and witty dialogue; movies that in the end give their audiences some credit for brains and taste.
If your summer reading includes Ron Chernow's MASSIVE George Washington: A Life, you're going to need some relief, aren't you? Here are a few biographies that are sometimes edifying and a bit more, uhhh, recreational.
Naughty, funny boys have dominated the big screen for a while now. They frolic through Judd Apatow's and Adam Sandler's comedic masterpieces, charming...
There are those who will scream "DISAPPOINTMENT!" because Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opened with $200 million in its first five days two years ago. If $180 million in six days is disappointment, sign me up for failure anytime.
While worth seeing, some will find Bridesmaids, as I did, a little too raunchy. Having a woman defecate in a sink was too much for me.
