As one of the most critically acclaimed comedians in the business today (running one of the most critically lauded shows on television), Louie C.K. has the ability to pull in just about anyone he wants for a bit role in one of his episodes, be it Susan Sarandon, Jerry SeinfeldYvonne Strahovski… the list goes on and on. What’s most impressive, however, is how Louie utilizes these cameos, using recognizable faces as jumping-off points for important, often existential discussions. Here are five of Louie‘s best guest stars, and the ingenious ways they’re used on the show to upset Louie’s status quo (note: Pamela Adlon appears so frequently, we didn’t count her as a »

11 November 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In this monthly column we spotlight new Blu-ray/DVD releases by interviewing directors about the scenes that stood out most for them while making their movies. This month, we talk to Ben Falcone about the Melissa McCarthy comedy Tammy (on sale November 11). Though Tammy is a zany comedy starring Melissa McCarthy in the title role as a down-on-her-luck outcast who after getting fired from her job and catching her husband cheating embarks on a road trip with her drunken grandmother (Susan Sarandon), for director Ben Falcone it’s not the comedy that stands out for him but the dramatic third act. In this point of the film, Tammy is on the run from the cops after robbing a fast food joint to get enough money to bail her grandmother out of jail. Tammy and grandma Pearl find...

Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates

Running Time: 1 hr 37 mins

Rating: R

Due Out: November 11, 2014

Own “Tammy” on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital HD on November 11th

Plot (courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment): After losing her job, husband and car in one day, Tammy Banks (McCarthy) wants out of her small town existence. With no money or transportation, her only way out is with her hard-partying grandmother, Pearl (Sarandon). Their misadventures and brushes with the law lead them on a funny and heartfelt road trip to remember.

Movie:

I believe this is the closest we will see Melissa McCarthy achieve her The Jerk. What I mean is, you can feel how personal this is for McCarthy. I don’t mean the particular journey of an oddball woman taking her grandmother on a road trip, what I’m talking about it the humor, »

Tammy Blu-Ray Review

10 November 2014 9:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Melissa McCarthy stands as the most polarizing comedic force currently circulating Hollywood, and no film better represents her “love me or hate me” personality more than hubby Ben Falcone’s directorial debut, Tammy. Written by the husband and wife team, McCarthy’s signature brand of unkempt comedy “comes in hot” for the films entirety, barraging audiences with the titular character’s uneducated, vulgar, and sometimes moronic “charms.” Where The Heat let McCarthy flex her badass-cop muscles, and where Bridesmaids allowed McCarthy’s vulgarity to be counterbalanced by numerous clashing personalities, Tammy takes the “lovable dimwit” route a bit too emphatically, presenting audiences with a comedic helping three sizes too large.

McCarthy pairs up with the legendary Susan Sarandon for a self-reflective road trip filled with trials and tribulations, as Sarandon plays Tammy’s grandmother (Pearl). After finding herself in a rut, Pearl allows Tammy to escape using her car, but »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"How To Train Your Dragon 2"

This sequel to the popular DreamWorks animated film isn't quite as winning as the original, but the adventures of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon Toothless still manage to please. Gerard Butler returns as the voice of Hiccup's dad Stoick, with Djimon Hounsou as the voice of a baddie named Drago and Cate Blanchett as a mysterious dragon rider named Valka.

"Tammy"

Melissa McCarthy co-wrote this comedy/drama with her husband Ben Falcone, who also directs. Marketed as a broad comedy with lots of physical humor, "Tammy" has more to it than McCarthy's pratfalls and naughty humor. Susan Sarandon co-stars as Tammy's alcoholic grandmother Pearl, who accompanies Tammy on an ill-fated road trip. This included »
