If the phrase ‘Adam Sandler-starring romantic comedy’ doesn’t fill your heart with dread and terror then you’ve probably not been paying too much attention to film criticism in recent years. That’s okay, neither has Adam Sandler. The reviews are generally terrible and yet Sandler has rolled out at least one comedy every year since 1998, which is undeniably impressive.

I wouldn’t include myself as a member of the critical fraternity, by the way. I »

“Saturday Night Live” returned for its landmark fortieth season with a new announcer, a revived “Weekend Update” and a couple of digs at the National Football League. But the show continued to serve up something it largely avoided when it launched way back in 1975: The expected.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt altered the opening proceedings slightly when he gave a monologue that eschewed the traditional words about how great it is for the host to be in New York City, but then ended the segment on a business-as-usual tone by playing a ditty about hosting the program while accompanying himself on acoustic guitar.
From there, the show – as it does most weeks – bounced along. Sketches featuring Taran Killam and Pratt as sexually hyperactive cartoon superstars He-Man and the Thundercats’ Lion-o was just strange enough to warrant a laugh and a fake commercial lampooning Marvel superhero movies was an obvious success. »

Kevin Nealon stopped by Conan O'Brien's show last night and the duo got to talking about their former Saturday Night Live days. O'Brien asked Nealon about the recent revival of popular SNL characters Hans and Franz in new State Farm commercials, leading Nealon to recount a funny story of the first time he spoke with Arnold Schwarzenegger about the skit. The nostalgia-session hit a high note when Nealon revealed that the plans to turn Hans and Franz into a girlie men musical were completely thwarted by Schwarzenegger, who got cold feet and backed out. We don't know whether to

Who wasn't on the 'Chelsea Lately' finale?!
Who wasn't on the Chelsea Lately finale?!
On Tuesday night, Chelsea Handler wrapped up "seven years of ridiculous stupidity" with her hour-long series finale of her late-night talk show. It was such a special occasion that Chelsea wore white and Chuy wore a tux -- and to say there were a few A-listers in attendance is an understatement.

Blended - Warner Bros. - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Frank Coraci Cast: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Joel McHale, Kevin Nealon, Wendi McLendon-Covey. Full cast + crew Adam Sandler's been on autopilot for awhile now, with each lame new comedy drying up the well of good will he earned in the '90s and early '00s. So you'd expect Blended, his latest rom-com with costar Drew Barrymore, to be yet another Grown Ups or That's My Boy, but it's actually kind of a sweet movie about two single parents past their prime trying to move on with their lives. It's also got an absurd premise and is way too long at nearly two hours in length, but it's charming, Barrymore is delightful and it isn't riddled with a lot of...
