On July 29th a big party was held by CBS/The CW/Showtime for the Television Critics Annual Summer Press Tour at The Event, which is actually the upper parking lot where the department store Robinson’s/May in Beverly Hills used to be. Taking pictures before heading inside it was quite a turnout of stars from the three networks of their new shows and returning shows of the three networks CBS, The CW and Showtime. I probably missed a few as I went in as soon as the cast from the CW new show THE ORIGINALS, a spin-off from THE VAMPIRE DAIRIES walked […]Read On »

Stars: Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, Jason Segel, Annie Mumolo, Robert Smigel, Megan Fox, Graham Parker Writer-Director: Judd Apatow Distributor: Universal Pictures It’s hard not to be pulled into the comedic films of Judd Apatow. As a writer-director of THE 40-YEAR OLD VIRGIN, KNOCKED UP, FUNNY PEOPLE and now THIS IS 40, Judd Apatow has created a vision and a voice all of his own. His films are so personal, they conjure up the best work of Woody Allen, James L. Brooks, Cameron Crow and Albert Brooks (who also has a major role in THIS IS 40). […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT

FIVE YEAR ENGAGMENT | © 2012 Universal Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie Writer: Jason Segel & Nicholas Stoller Director: Nicholas Stoller  Distributor: Universal Studios Release Date: April 27, 2012 THE FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT is pretty much what you would (or have come to expect) from this particular niche of comedy. It’s almost like an R rated SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE…which is not really a comparison, but more of an origin for this type of romantic comedy. Certainly BRIDESMAIDS was a big part of the founding of this new off brand of adult comedy that pokes fun at being married, or getting married, […]Read On »

Relatively few actresses create three indelible characters in their careers, but Alyson Hannigan has managed this hat trick and may well enact more in her future. Hannigan, born in Washington, D.C.and raised in Atlanta, started her career early, appearing in commercials before moving into films (including MY STEPMOTHER IS AN ALIEN) and television (FREE SPIRIT). Then, in 1997, Hannigan began her seven-season run as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Willow Rosenberg, who started as a shy brainy high school student and became a very powerful witch, along with achieving real-world lesbian icon status when the character came out. Willow lives on […]Read On »

Is there nothing Justin Timberlake won’t do for a good laugh? Not, say he! In his new movie BAD TEACHER co-starring his ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz, Timberlake plays teacher Scott Delacorte, a somewhat dorky yet endearing teacher who Diaz has her sights on. The 30-year-old Timberlake says he owes his comedy hutzpah to SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. Timberlake, an SNL fan since his early childhood, has watched and mimicked many characters from the show, which came in handy when he finally had a chance to host the show nearly eight years ago. Now he says because of SNL the door has opened […]Read On »
