Contest: Win 'Adult Beginners' Starring Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne, And Bobby Cannavale On Blu-ray

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It may not have had all the trappings of a major studio comedy, but it had talent. This year's indie comedy wonder "Adult Beginners" brought together the talent of Nick Kroll, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Jane Krakowski, Bobby Moynihan, Joel McHale, Mike Birbiglia and more for a sweet tale of arrested development. And if you missed it, we've got several Blu-ray copies for some lucky readers. Directed by Ross Katz, the story follows a young, hipster entrepreneur who crashes and burns on the eve of his company’s big launch. With his entire life in disarray, he leaves Manhattan to move in with his estranged pregnant sister, brother-in-law and three year-old nephew in the suburbs—only to become their manny. Faced with real responsibility, he may finally have to grow up—but not without some bad behavior first. The movie is funny and charming (read our review) and it's worth carving some time out for. »

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Tituss Burgess entertained his Twitter followers with a lip sync rendition of a Beyoncé song, and got co-star Jane Krakowski and the Netflix sitcom’s co-creator Tina Fey in on the action, too. The three actors, who all scored Emmy nominations for their performances in the sitcom nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, moved their lips along to the 2013 hit single “Flawless” before cracking up. “Kimmy Schmidt,” which stars Ellie Kemper (“The Office”) as the eponymous lead, follows the survivor of a doomsday cult trying to live a normal life in New York City.

Tituss Burgess Lip-Syncing Beyonce With Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski Is Flawless

30 July 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Tituss Burgess deservedly earned an Emmy nomination for his hilarious work on Netflix comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," including his now-iconic music video for the ridiculous, wonderful tune "Peeno Noir." But Burgess has been lighting up social media lately with his own real-life videos, too, including a recent ode to Beyonce's "Flawless."

Burgess posted a short clip to Instagram this week featuring him lip-syncing along to that Queen Bee song. But the actor, who was sitting on a plane at the time, couldn't help but bring in a couple famous friends to help him out, panning over to include "Kimmy" co-creator Tina Fey and his co-star, Jane Krakowski, who also got in on the fun, mouthing along to the tune's chorus and mugging for the camera.

The Kids of National Lampoon's 'Vacation' Films -- Where Are They Now?!

28 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's hard to believe it's been more than 20 years since we first met the Griswolds in National Lampoon's "Vacation." The 1983 original followed Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold, an overly enthusiastic dad who just wants to have a fun family trip to Wally World, a California amusement park. Unfortunately, it all goes to hell as they encounter a series of misadventures along the journey. The film sparked a number of sequels, including "European Vacation," "Christmas Vacation" and "Vegas Vacation." Fast forward to 2015, as the latest installment in the hilarious franchise, "Vacation," his theaters today. The new film focuses on a fully-grown (and once again recast) Rusty Griswold, as he takes his own family on a disastrous getaway. Ed Helms is taking over the lead role, Christina Applegate plays his wife and Leslie Mann fills the role of sister Audrey.  Before we welcome the Griswolds back to the big screen, we're taking »

Watch the original Pixels short film

25 July 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of Adam Sandler’s 80s arcade game actioneer Pixels this week (to less than stellar reviews – read Robert Kojder’s ★ ★ one here), it might be a good time to rewatch the original short film on which it’s based.

“But it’s a Futurama episode!” you cry. Yes. Yes, it is. 2002’s Season 3 episode 18 ‘Anthology of Interest II‘, to be precise. But Sander’s Happy Madison Productions’ direct inspiration was the below 2010 film, directed by Patrick Jean. And at a lean 2 minutes 35 seconds, it sounds a lot more bearable than the feature-length adaptation. Check it out…

Pixels is directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) and stars Adam Sandler (Grown Ups 2), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), Michelle Monaghan (Playing it Cool), Sean Bean (Jupiter Ascending), Josh Gad (Frozen) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity »

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

The King of Kong: Columbus Peddles Dopey Sandler Comedy

Hailing from some parallel universe where Never Never Land must be the capital is Pixels, a Chris Columbus directed Adam Sandler comedy pasted together by his usual writer, Tim Herlihy and returning collaborator Timothy Dowling (Just Go With It, 2011). If there’s anyone to pity here, it’s Patrick Jean, the director of the 2010 short film upon which this concept is based. As far as Sandler’s handlers go, it’s uncertain who or what this feature length version is geared towards, a family friendly package severely dumbed down for the enjoyment of today’s tots yet emblazoned with obsolete video games two generations removed from the only audience members unoffended by the laziness and stupidity of the final product. Though some supporting players escape less scathed by this misbegotten lump of a film, Sandler and co. seem tone deaf »

Movie Review – Pixels (2015)

24 July 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pixels, 2015.

Directed by Chris Columbus.

Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad, Brian Cox, Ashley Benson and Jane Krakowski.

Synopsis:

When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.

Pixels has a wonderful nostalgia influenced concept but it is, sadly, as we all predicted suffocated in quality due to the unfortunate presence of Adam Sandler and company. That does not mean I completely hated Pixels though. It’s true that it is insincere with its affection for video games and general nerd culture, but that doesn’t stop the movie from having its fair share of creativity and entertaining moments.

Let’s just get the obvious negatives out of the way first; Adam Sandler is here and is playing another man-child, insulting people for no reason, and gets to win »

'Pixels' (2015) Movie Review

23 July 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Even as an Adam Sandler/Kevin James-vehicle, Pixels deserves to be more inspired. The arcade-loving, '80s-centric action-comedy transitioned to the big screen from Patrick Jean's inventive world-domination-by-8-bits short film wields the fine set pieces, tech resources and token-required games to earn a top score. But Sandler and his team don't even attempt to advance to the next level, constantly drawing on the comedian's trademark sophomoric cheat codes to hastily produce what's essentially the poor man's Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, global-annihilation movie. Make no mistake: this is a Happy Madison production through-and-through. Minus extensive pratfall jokes with James or unnecessary Rob Schneider or Steve Buscemi pop-ups, almost every check mark from the Sandler production list is marked. Cheap insults directed towards one physical trait from different supporting charactersc Check. Sandler getting the out-of-his-league girl (in this case, Michelle Monaghan) because he's our main slubby do-gooderc You bet. »

Film Review: ‘Pixels’

22 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An adorable life-sized version of Q*bert is easily the most engaging character in “Pixels,” a dimwitted ’80s nostalgia trip best appreciated by those who have waited years for Adam Sandler’s fine-grained intelligence and Chris Columbus’ filmmaking mastery to finally converge. For the remaining 99% of the moviegoing population, this slapdash, casually sexist revenge-of-the-nerds fantasy offers some mild visual distraction with its massive CGI renderings of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and other old-school videogame characters that have been co-opted here by malevolent space invaders, challenging Earth to the mother of all intergalactic arcade battles. Commercially, the somewhat novel combination of Sandler’s bro-comedy antics and an unexpected dose of geek appeal should help Sony’s July 24 Stateside release enjoy a few late-summer bonus rounds at the box office, aided by strong awareness and 3D ticket premiums.

Commercial returns should remain steady even if word-of-mouth reactions fail to rise much above the level of “Well, »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series

21 July 2015 12:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A six-time winner (including two in 2014), Allison Janney has almost as many trophies as she does competitors in 2015. Thanks to the TV Academy implementing its two-percent rule — stating any nominee within two percent of the next nominee is considered a tie, and both are included — across the acting categories this year, Janney will face more competition than ever in her fight to retain the title of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Many of the 2015 nominees have been here before, with Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Anna Chlumsky, and Kate McKinnon all returning from 2014 (and earlier). Only Bowen has won before (twice), but Jane Krakowski is making her triumphant return to the Emmys after earning four nominations throughout "30 Rock's" impressive aughts-era run. She could finally snag a win this year thanks to re-teaming with Tina Fey, but there are plenty of new faces who are just as eager to make their mark. »

Adam Sandler discusses The Ridiculous 6 controversy

20 July 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Speaking to The Associated Press (via The Hollywood Reporter), Adam Sandler has addressed the controversy on the set of his latest film, The Ridiculous 6, which is the comedian’s first venture with Netflix.

At the premiere of his new film Pixels, Sandler was asked about the Native American actors who walked off the set of Ridiculous 6 in April due to the offensive content of the film to their culture. Some actors were reportedly upset over the names of some of the characters, as well as a scene where a Native American woman smokes a peace pipe while urinating.

“It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up,” Sandler said over the weekend, while also saying the film was “100 percent pro-American Indian”.

The Ridiculous Six is a spoof-comedy which pokes fun at the Western genre, including the classic The Magnificent Seven.
