Best of Late Night TV: 'Parks and Recreation' Cast Kisses Goodbye; Josh Duhamel, Gabrielle Union Throw Food (Video)

24 February 2015 11:05 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Seth Meyers had the cast of "Parks and Recreation" on his show Tuesday night for their big final goodbye. Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Retta, Jim O'Heir and Mike Schur discussed filming the finale, and revealed their own pitches for how they wanted the show to end. Since it's also the one-year anniversary of Seth's show, they sang an anniversary song for him, but they didn't rehearse it, so it didn't go too well. What did go very well was their "Bye, Bye Li'l Sebastian" song on the way out -- complete with Jim (Gerry) and Aubrey (April) making out, to the surprise of everyone around them. »

Classroom Chaos: Top Ten High School Outsiders

23 February 2015 6:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One of the hardest bouts of growing pains experienced by adolescents is that rite of passage known as the high school experience. In high school one is subject to discovering their own sense of self-identity and purpose. In fact, sometimes the social factor is crucial because the cost of belonging in social-related circles is vital in a four-year commitment to belonging among your peers.

The tension is high to belong and get along as your search for excellence in good grades, social interaction and the overall learning experience is important. However, not every youngster can cope with what they are faced as the obstacles to excel are demanding in high school. Hence, the potential to become “an outsider” is inevitable and the unlikeliest label that no one can overcome no matter how much they try.

The movies have been instrumental in capturing such heavy-handed angst and frustration of the tortured »

Watch Martin Short, Fallon Trade Fake Bill Paxton Stories in 'Word Sneak'

20 February 2015 6:41 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Martin Short and Jimmy Fallon exchanged hilariously fake tales about actor Bill Paxton on Thursday night during a Tonight Show round of "Word Sneak." The game's objective is simple: work a series of random words and phrases into a conversation "as casually and as seamlessly as possible" – and in this case, it led to an extended back-and-forth on Paxton's back hair and public drunkenness. 

In the above clip, Fallon opens by asking Short what it's like working on Broadway opposite Matthew Broderick in It's Only a Play. Short sneaks in »

Interview: Husbands of the Stage Musical ‘The First Wives Club’

18 February 2015 11:33 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Like the recent movie-to-stage-musical adaptations, “The Producers” and “Young Frankenstein,” Chicago has become the proving ground before a Broadway premiere. The latest is almost a no-brainer, “The First Wives Club,” adapted from the 1996 film that starred Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.

The big news is that the original song writing team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland (Holland-Dozier-Holland) have reunited to write new music for the show, adding to their familiar hits “Stop in the Name of Love,” and “Reach Out I’ll Be There.” 22 new songs have been added to “The First Wives Club” stage musical, representing the first new output in years from the famous songwriting trio.

Sarah Jessica Parker has some very stylish children

15 February 2015 5:29 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Sarah Jessica Parker has some very stylish children. The 'Sex in the City' star says her three children - James, twelve and five-year-old twins Tabitha and Marion with Matthew Broderick - have their ''own identity'' when it comes to fashion and they get to choose what they want to wear. She told People magazine: ''They're at an age - and have been for many years - where they really have their own identity. ''So Sunday through Thursday, the rule is they can wear whatever they want. And if we go to the theatre or to the ballet, I get a say. But it's really among choices that they approve of.'' Meanwhile, the 47-year-old actress previously admitted that children can ''distract'' from a relationship. She said: ''Kids can really distract you from your relationship. Maybe in good ways and bad ways. It's important to have all eyes on all parts of the relationship. »

‘The Breakfast Club’ at 30: The Best and Worst Films of John Hughes

13 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Few films have captured the complex inner lives of American teenagers better than John Hughes’ “The Breakfast Club.” Released three decades ago on February 15, the movie, with its expert casting, pitch-perfect dialogue and refreshing sincerity, helped pave the way for others like “Heathers,” “Say Anything” and “Mean Girls,” as well as groundbreaking TV shows like “My So Called Life” and “Freaks and Geeks.” Virtually overnight, Hughes became the poet laureate of teen angst and a passionate chronicler of the modern high school experience. On the 30th anniversary of “The Breakfast Club,” here’s a look back at John Hughes’ 10 finest films, plus five that didn’t quite make the grade.

The Best…

Tony Awards preview: What is ahead for Best Play Revival?

11 February 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There have been several all-star smash Broadway play revivals so far in the 2014-15 season with a few more potential candidates to come before the Tony cut-off date of April 23. So the race for Best Play Revival is a lot hotter than the competition for Best Play which hasn’t featured as many runaway successes -Break- The biggest revival hit with audiences is Terrence McNally’s “It’s Only a Play” which has proved to be such a huge smash it extended its limited run and changed theaters because its previous home, the Schoenfeld, had been reserved for “The Audience” starring Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II. Originally produced Off-Broadway in 1986, “Play” is a wild backstage comedy taking place at the opening night party of the latest work by neurotic playwright Peter Austin (Matthew Broderick).

WarGames remake: director Dean Israelite offers update

9 February 2015 10:57 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Exclusive: Dean Israelite on why he's remaking WarGames, and how he's approaching it.

One of the many remakes working its way through the Hollywood system is a new take on WarGames, John Badham's mix of tic-tac-toe, Matthew Broderick's hacker, and the threat of nuclear warfare.

It still holds up really rather well too, but that hasn't slowed down plans for a new take on the story. The remake, then, is currently in the hands of Project Almanac director Dean Israelite, and he's giving us an update on the project.

He confirmed that it's the film he's developing that "I hope will go next", adding that "we've been developing the script, and I think it's an exciting project. If there's ever a reason to remake a movie, it's WarGames. If there was ever a movie primed to say something new and bold and relevant for our time, it's WarGames. »

23 January 2015 5:01 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Pioneering woman director Lois Weber socially conscious drama 'Shoes' among Library of Congress' Packard Theater movies (photo: Mary MacLaren in 'Shoes') In February 2015, National Film Registry titles will be showcased at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus Theater – aka the Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation – in Culpeper, Virginia. These range from pioneering woman director Lois Weber's socially conscious 1916 drama Shoes to Robert Zemeckis' 1985 blockbuster Back to the Future. Another Packard Theater highlight next month is Sam Peckinpah's ultra-violent Western The Wild Bunch (1969), starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine. Also, Howard Hawks' "anti-High Noon" Western Rio Bravo (1959), toplining John Wayne and Dean Martin. And George Cukor's costly remake of A Star Is Born (1954), featuring Academy Award nominees Judy Garland and James Mason in the old Janet Gaynor and Fredric March roles.

14 January 2015 10:53 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

Reese Witherspoon Is Reuniting With Her Election Director For This Weirdo Movie

8 January 2015 7:03 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Reese Witherspoon has transformed herself from a rom-com queen into an Oscar front-runner. She was nominated for Best Actress by the Golden Globes for Wild, and she seems like a lock for an Oscar nomination, as well. So what.s next for Witherspoon 2.0? She.ll be re-teaming with the director of one of her most famous early works for a story that.s.well, basically like Ant-Man minus the heroics. As reported by The Wrap, Reese Witherspoon is joining the cast of Downsizing, which is directed by Alexander Payne. Aside from some Oscar nominations for his recent Nebraska, Witherspoon also knows Payne from their days working on Election together with Matthew Broderick. Downsizing is a peculiar little film (with emphasis on the "little"): in an alternate future not too far off from our present, humanity has developed size-shrinking technology. They can.t also talk to ants or fight crime »

Chris Brown’s Best of 2014

1 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

In remembrance of 2014, we will be highlighting each of our contributor’s “Best of 2014″ on an individual basis. This isn’t limited to movies & television either. No, no, this bleeds over into memorabilia, music and so much more. Without further ado…

Deliver Us from Evil

Deliver Us from Evil” earns a spot on my list because it wasn’t “The Conjuring” and I still haven’t seen “The Babadook.” I know, shame, but there you have it. This movie, honestly, is here because Eric Bana is an excellent actor and, along with Joel McHale, the generic plotline here is knocked out of the park. Why? Because good actors elevate mediocre scripts, and as far as scripts go, this one isn’t far above the median line, but it has more than just great performances boosting its bottom line. The movie is ugly (tone, color, atmosphere) from the start. We don »
