Sandy Wexler Trailer #2 Has Adam Sandler Stuck in the 1990s

16 February 2017 4:56 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the brief teaser trailer released last month, Netflix has now unleashed a full trailer for their upcoming comedy Sandy Wexler, starring Adam Sandler as the title character. This comedy marks the third movie in his four-picture deal with the streaming service, which has already yielded the 2015 Western The Ridiculous Six and last year's The Do-Over. While the comedy superstar reunites with several of his frequent collaborators, this movie shows Adam Sandler sharing the spotlight with Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson.

Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler) is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, diligently representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.

The Weekend Warrior 2/10/17: The Lego Batman Movie, 50 Shades Darker, John Wick 2

8 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:                                                                

Bomb, bomb bomb bomb, Boooooomb!  Things just kept getting worse and worse at the box office as this past weekend saw more new releases not meeting up to their potential. The horribly-reviewed horror movie Rings (Paramount) ended up around where I predicted with $13 million, taking second place to M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. The sci-fi romance The Space Between Us (Stx Entertainment) didn’t make much of a mark, opening in ninth place with just $3.8 million with about $1,300 per theater. Robert De Niro’s The Comedian (Sony Classics) tanked worse than many recent movies, making less than a million in 848 theaters or about $1,000 per theater. By comparison, the doc I Am Not Your Negro made about 78% of that amount in 800 less theaters. »

Netflix Lands The Eggplant Emoji With Ben Stiller As Producer

27 January 2017 8:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a curious development, Netflix has beaten out several other broadcasters in a fierce bidding war for The Eggplant Emoji – a new, dark comedy from Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider (Gentlemen Lobsters). The project will be a co-production between Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films, and the talent behind WorkaholicsBlake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Kyle Newacheck.

The Eggplant Emoji looks to be a move on the part of Netflix to expand its original comedy slate in the direction of broader humour than it perhaps has been noted for in the past. While few details have been confirmed, it’s reported that the writers will seek to adopt a tone that is similar to Superbad – featuring R-rated shenanigans against a backdrop of male friendship and bonding. At the current time, the only specific element of the plot that is known is that the story will involve a teenage »

Newswire: Netflix grabs Ben Stiller’s chopped-off-dick comedy

26 January 2017 4:38 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Netflix has come out on top in a competitive bidding war for Eggplant Emoji, a new film from Ben Stiller and the Workaholics crew. Penned by Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider, who produce the bizarro web series Gentlemen Lobsters for GQ and Seeso, the film is about a group of teens working to overcome the usual adolescent problems: girls, peer pressure, and one of their members getting his dick chopped off in the middle of a camping trip. “The intent is to make a comedy in the vein of Superbad, something that focused on friendship but throbbed with insane situations and R-rated language,” described The Hollywood Reporter, using up several of the better penis puns, and forcing the rest of us to scrabble in the dirt for material.

Stiller will produce the film, along with Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Kyle Newacheck, all from Comedy Central’s Workaholics »

From TV Star to Executive: Mary Tyler Moore’s Most Iconic Moments

26 January 2017 6:18 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Mary Tyler Moore never set out to be one of the pioneers of television, but with her warmth and comedic chops, she cemented a legacy for generations of fans thanks to her groundbreaking work in the medium, both onscreen and behind the camera. Moore died on Wednesday from a cardiopulmonary arrest after contracting pneumonia, her publicist confirmed to Et. She was 80.  

Moore first rose to prominence on The Dick Van Dyke Show, playing the slightly daffy wife to Van Dyke’s TV writer character from 1961-66. She then branched out on her own with The Mary Tyler Moore Show, on which she became a feminist icon as a single, working woman. During the show’s run, from 1970 to 1977, she was nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series every year and won a total of three awards. 

After her eponymous show ended, Moore deftly moved into films and Broadway shows, working with the »

Actress Mary Tyler Moore Dead at 80

25 January 2017 5:44 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A TV icon for sure,  star one of the best sitcoms of all time, but Mary Tyler Moore left a mark with her big screen work including her Oscar-nominated turn in the 1980 Best Picture winner Ordinary People. She co-starred with Charles Bronson in X-15, Elvis in a A Change Of Habit, Julie Andrews in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and played Ben Stiller’s mom in David O. Russel’s Flirting With Disaster. Her Ordinary People performance was wonderful and incredibly surprising at the time but it’s her TV work, from Happy Hotpoint, the Hotpoint Appliance elf in the mid-50’s, to The Dick Van Dyke Show to her winning three Emmys as Mary Richards on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Ms Moore live for many years with Type 1 diabetes and passed away this morning at age 80.

Watch Mary Tyler Moore Flash Patricia Arquette in ‘Flirting With Disaster’ (Video)

Mary Tyler Moore was never afraid to let it all hang out. In addition to paving the way for a generation of women on television, the iconic actress also understood the importance of a good bra, as seen in the above clip from the 1996 film “Flirting with Disaster.” In the comedy, Moore played Pearl, the adoptive mother of Mel (Ben Stiller). In the scene, Pearl is counseling Mel’s wife Nancy (Patricia Arquette) about how the ravages of time can affect the female body. Since Nancy was clearly not getting the point, Pearl raised her shirt to show just what a. »

Hail Mary: Why Mary Tyler Moore Was the Greatest

25 January 2017 3:15 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The most unforgettable moment from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, out of dozens of contenders: Mary sits at the bar with her newsroom co-workers, drinking their sorrows away. They've had a grim day – her cranky boss Lou Grant just attended his ex-wife's wedding, while he's still reeling from the divorce, so the others tagged along for moral support. Pompous anchorman Ted Baxter tries to lighten the mood with a knock-knock joke. Lou growls, "Ted, this better be a pretty funny knock-knock joke. I lost a wife today." It's a godawful joke. »

‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ Blu-ray Review

24 January 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Anjelica Huston, Luke Wilson | Written and Directed by Wes Anderson

The final part of Wes Anderson’s “Owen Wilson trilogy” (the last Wilson co-wrote) is a typically oddball family opera. From the opening scene we see the Anderson tropes: A muzaked cover of a classic rock tune (Hey Jude); an erudite narrator (Alec Baldwin) presenting a cast of quirky characters; meticulously stage-crafted framing; precision pans and zooms; and photography swathed in bold primary colours.

The Tenenbaum children were once destined for social excellence. Chas was a precocious business genius; Richie was a champion tennis player; and adopted daughter Margot was a promising playwright. Jump past their 20s, however, and we find that Chas (Ben Stiller) is a widower who’s so obsessed with his children’s safety that he’s forgotten how to live; Richie (Luke Wilson) threw away »

Newswire: The Razzies assert their continued relevance by making fun of Zoolander 2

23 January 2017 12:10 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Hey, remember Zoolander 2? Exactly. So it’s sort of ironically perfect that the Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. The Razzies, the awards show honoring the worst in cinema as picked by the people who write those “1001 Jokes” books that was founded in 1980 and hasn’t really updated its comedic style since, is hitching its wagon to that underperforming, decades-late Ben Stiller vehicle. The big news this year is that the Razzies have followed the Oscars’ lead in expanding their category sizes; as organizers put it, “2016 was so overfull of bad movies that we had to expand every category from five movies to six.”

However, despite their widened scope, this year’s Razzies nominations have followed the usual pattern of fixating upon a handful of critically panned-but-profitable titles, allowing the awards show to have it both ways in terms of capitalizing upon the films’ popularity while ...
