Watch: First Trailer for Comedy 'Amateur Night' Starring Jason Biggs

6 May 2016 7:48 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You ready for your 15 minutes, Big Daddy?" Cinedigm has released an official trailer for the upcoming comedy Amateur Night, which feels more like a mainstream studio movie even though it's an indie film. Jason Biggs plays Guy Carter, an insecure expectant father who, unable to find work in his field, accepts a job driving hookers around Los Angeles. The cast includes Janet Montgomery, Ashley Tisdale, Bria L. Murphy, Jenny Mollen and Steven Weber. The synopsis even so cheesy it says, "one long and crazy evening proves to our hero that he is, in fact, up to the task of fatherhood." Yep, looks pretty bad. Have fun. Here's the first trailer for Lisa Addario & Joe Syracuse's Amateur Night, direct from YouTube: Jason Biggs stars as Guy, an out-of-work expectant father desperate to find a job to support his growing family. At the urging of his wife (Jenny Mollen), he answers »

Jason Biggs stars as Guy Carter, a promising graduate student studying architecture, who has been having trouble finding work in his chosen field, which leads to him taking on a unique "driver" job, which is much more complicated than he had imagined. Cinedigm has released the first trailer for this comedy, while announcing that the film will get a limited theatrical release on August 5, before expanding on August 12th digitally, on demand and in 8 other select markets. We also have the first poster and photos from this upcoming comedy.

This new comedy from Cinedigm centers on Guy Carter (Jason Biggs), an award-winning graduate student of architecture. He's got a beautiful wife and a baby on the way. The problem? »

The 'iZombie' finale staged a massacre that was like 'Walking Dead' — but fun

12 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

iZombie wrapped up its second season tonight with back-to-back episodes. I already offered some overall thoughts on the season after last week's outing, so let's get specific on the finale, coming up just as soon as I'm a squad leader of my Call of Duty World League challenge team... We know from the Meat Cute massacre in the season 1 finale that this show can do impressive zombie action when it's of a mind to. But the carnage at the Max Rager party was much bigger and more elaborate than I'd have expected. If it wasn't as technically impressive as the Walking Dead version would have been, it was so much fun, and so character-focused — whether Clive declining to be scratched, Liv being forced to kill the Romero'ed Drake (who only wound up that way because he was the good guy Liv always believed him to be), or Major finally getting »

Extended Promo For iZombie’s Two-Hour Season Finale

6 April 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It looks as though every plot thread established on iZombie will explode in grand fashion when the two-hour season finale arrives next week. One view of the extended preview, which can be seen at the top of the page, will likely cause fans to countdown the days.

As we can see in the trailer, things aren’t going all too well for Major, who was arrested at the end of last night’s episode. Seeing as how he has reverted back to zombie form, going without adequate brain food could ultimately prove dangerous for both he and his fellow inmates. We all remember how rough it was for Liv when she found herself temporarily incarcerated earlier this season.

It also looks like we need to keep our eyes on those rowdy looking zombies in Max Rager’s secret basement. Will they break free and take a tour of the city? »

'iZombie' doesn't always make sense. Here's why that really doesn't matter.

6 April 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I haven't checked in on iZombie in a while, so let's talk about last night's episode — and season 2 as a whole as we wait for next week's finale — coming up just as soon as I clear cases like Frank Drebin but get treated like Nordberg... "Reflections of the Way Liv Used to Be" was the first iZombie episode I can recall to not use the full (and excellent) opening credits sequence, which is a move shows make when an hour is particularly busy. Given all the stories the show has been spinning this year about Max Rager, Major's side career turning zombies into popsicles, the war for Seattle drug supremacy, Ravi working on a cure, etc., not to mention how much time the Brain of the Week mystery eats up, it's a wonder the show doesn't have to shave down those credits every week to fit everything in. If I'm being honest, »

‘A Night at Sardi’s’ Closes With Jason Alexander, Eric McCormack, Steven Weber and a ‘Big Bang’

10 March 2016 10:34 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Tonight we honor Peter Grad, who passed away suddenly last summer,” began David Hyde Pierce on Wednesday at the final “A Night at Sardi’s” benefit — founded by Laurie Burrows (daughter of playwright Abe Burrows) and her late husband Grad (an Mtm Television executive) 23 years prior, to support the Alzheimer’s Association. “His example as a charitable and loving man inspires us and lives with any of us who ever came in contact with him. Many of his jokes live with us too, and for that, we will never forgive him.”

What will also clearly live on is the “A Night at Sardi’s” legacy, evidenced by the loyal alum from Peter Gallagher to Jason Alexander to Eric McCormack — “No one had ever heard of me when this first began!” McCormack said — who returned to reenact their favorite numbers, which helped to generate $28 million over the 23 years, for the show »

Beauty vs Beast: Crazy Comes Classified

1 February 2016 2:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here with this week's "Beauty vs Beast" for your consideration -- Jennifer Jason Leigh will be celebrating her 54th birthday this upcoming Friday February 5th, after finally earning a long overdue Oscar nomination this year with her joyously profane work as "Daisy Dahmer-goo" (sorry I can only type it like Kurt Russell says it) in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

But Daisy's hardly my favorite villainous turn from the actress - she's always been willing to tap into the crazy, and that was a willingness that reaped righteously trashy rewards with 1992's psycho-roomate-thriller Single White Female, one of my favorites from the "psycho [fill in the blank] genre" that dominated in the early 90s. And meeting her all the way was a terrifically sweet and dazed Bridget Fonda (good god I miss Bridget Fonda), slinking around foolishly in that silver coat that haunts my dreams.
