Charlie Sheen Reprising Classic Role on a Sitcom...but It's Not What You Think

17 December 2014 9:08 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Charlie Sheen is heading to The Goldbergs in one totally rad and unexpected role. Sheen will reprise his Ferris Bueller's Day Off role of "Boy in the Police Station" in an upcoming Ferris Bueller-themed episode of the hit ABC sitcom, E! News has confirmed. In the episode, Barry (Troy Gentile) tries to stage his own Ferris Bueller-style day off. Of course it doesn't go well. Look for Erica (Hayley Orrantia) to meet Sheen's character. The Goldbergs also stars George Segal, Sean Giambrone, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Jeff Garlin. In the flick, Sheen appeared opposite Jennifer Grey. You can see the clip below. This is certainly not the role viewers were expecting Sheen to reprise. In »

Film Review: ‘Laggies’ Lags Behind With Connect-the-Dots Story

7 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – Apparently “Laggies” is a term which does mean one is “lagging behind” in the growing-up-to-be-an-adult requirement. The term is the title of a new comedy, which places the main character in a high concept situation, which only resides in the parallel universe of movieland.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Keira Knightley, the highly appealing British film actress, tries on her American accent in this one, as the character who practices the lagging behind of her very young adulthood (that accent is fairly exaggerated, as if she winked a bit at America). She is terrific to experience in a movie, and she has considerable charm in this one. But she’s also asked to do some things that are highly improbable for a adult woman to do – of any age – and that situational unlikelihood derails the story. This film is a prime example of decent performers unable to rise above the words and actions on the paper. »

Laggies – The Review

6 November 2014 9:37 PM, PST | | See recent news »

A frequent staple of recent big-screen comedies has been the “boy-man”, who almost joins Peter Pan in defiantly singing “I won’t grow up” as he stumbles through life. Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell have played variations of this throughout their movie careers, along with other members of the “frat pack” and Judd Apatow’s repertory company. Now it seems that this role is not an exclusive male domain. Kristen Wiig in The Girl Most Likely and Jenny Slate in Obvious Child could be referred to as “girl-women” as they were supported by their folks and bounced between jobs. Now, from indie film-making queen Lynn Shelton, maker of 2011’s delightful Your Sister’S Sister, comes another, slightly younger, post-college twenty-something, who’s having a tough time with adulthood. But, she not only drops out as she befriends a girl almost a decade younger, she hides out. This new film’s »

Movie Review – Say When (2014)

Say When (a.k.a. Laggies), 2014

Directed by Lynn Shelton

Starring Keira Knightley, Chloë Grace Moretz, Sam Rockwell, Mark Webber, Jeff Garlin, Gretchen Mol, Ellie Kemper, Eric Riedmann


A woman in her late twenties experiences a quarter-age crisis, setting her off on a path to rediscover her youth and enthusiasm for life…

When do you know that you’re an adult? Is it when you have to pay for everything and realise few things are worth it, or, is it when you know you have to try a different approach?

Originally known as ‘Laggies‘ in the Us, this charming and intermittently insightful romantic comedy offers an amusing study of how it can feel when life feels likes it’s slipping you by. Featuring a likeable lead performance from Keira Knightley as the 28 year old ‘lagging’ behind her peers, the film is based around the idea that there is no »

Say When review: Keira Knightley has a quarter-life crisis

5 November 2014 7:55 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Lynn Shelton; Screenwriter: Andrea Seigel; Starring: Keira Knightley, Chloë Grace Moretz, Sam Rockwell, Mark Webber, Ellie Kemper, Jeff Garlin; Running time: 99 mins; Certificate: 15

An affably slouchy turn by Keira Knightley holds this slacker yarn together, although director Lynn Shelton (Your Sister's Sister, Humpday) also makes a virtue of a loosely constructed story. Life is something that just happens by accident rather than design for our heroine, who is dizzied without being dumb.

On the contrary, middle class American gal Megan (Knightley) is accused of being overeducated and she is certainly underemployed, drifting towards the big 3-0 with no clue about what to do with the rest of her life. Her long-time, live-in boyfriend (Mark Webber) gives her encouragement and advice, which she accepts with a strained smile, but the killer blow is his offer of an engagement ring. Megan decides she needs a timeout and too cowardly to ask for it, »

TheWrap Screening Series: Jeff Garlin on Producing Doc ‘Finding Vivian Maier’ for Free – ‘There Was No Ego’ (Video)

29 October 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Serendipity played a part in turning Vivian Maier into a celebrated photographer, as well as turning comedic actor Jeff Garlin into a documentary filmmaker. “I'm not known for my documentaries,” Garlin admitted at TheWrap‘s Award Series screening of “Finding Vivian Maier.” But after watching a news report about Maier — a mysterious woman who spent her life as a nanny but secretly took extraordinary street photography — Garlin said he instantly realized, “Wow. This would make a great documentary. That was my first thought.” See photos: The Scene at TheGrill 2014: TheWrap's Media Leadership Conference “Finding Vivian Maier” is one of five. »

'Laggies' Sneak Preview Q & A: Lynn Shelton Changes Her Approach

28 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With "Laggies," Seattle filmmaker Lynn Shelton returned to Sundance with her sixth feature. Unlike Shelton's last three Sundance entries, "Touchy Feely," the entirely improvised "Humpday," and 80% improvised "Your Sister's Sister," the writer-director did not write her own script for "Laggies," starring Keira Knightley as a recently engaged woman suffering an identity crisis who befriends a teenager (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her single dad (Sam Rockwell),  For the first time, this was adapted from a book by the writer Andrea Siegel. And Shelton's strong ensemble, including Mark Webber as Knightley's fiance and Jeff Garlin as her father, relied on that script--with just a touch of improvisation as they went.  (My interview with Shelton on "Touchy Feely" is here, "Your Sister's Sister" here.) Shelton was originally going to star Anne Hathaway in the lead role, but when she fell out to do »

We All Float Down Here: Shelton’s Latest Winning Slice of Arrested Development

Remarkable in the sense that this is her third consecutive film to premiere at Sundance, director Lynn Shelton is one of the few female directors bucking the general trend of having laborious stretches of times between features. Her latest, Laggies, is her first directorial outing where Shelton has not also written the screenplay (Andrea Siegel gets her first credit instead), which divorces the film from a body of work largely improvised and often careening off the cuff to mostly enjoyable effect. While this makes her latest film feel a bit more mainstream, featuring an array of well-known names, it’s also a nicely polished example of familiarity, genuine with its intentions and generally pleasing even as it neglects to say anything we haven’t seen repeatedly from both a male and female perspective.

The Goldbergs: Season Two Ratings

23 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, The Goldbergs wasn't a big ratings success but ABC renewed it anyway. This time around, the execs have given it a great timeslot -- sandwiched between The Middle and Modern Family on Wednesdays. Will the ratings rise so that it will be renewed for a third season or will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

Set in the late 1980s, The Goldbergs, revolves around a family from Jenkintown, Pennsylvania. Youngest son Adam (Sean Giambrone) videotapes his family's craziness and provides commentary as an adult (Patton Oswalt). The rest of the cast includes Wendi McLendon-Covey, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia, George Segal, and Jeff Garlin.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes »

Review: 'Laggies' Starring Keira Knightley Is An Uneven, Patchy, Feel-Good, Crowd-Pleasing Comedy

21 October 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given that the arrested development subgenre of comedy is chiefly the domain of men and man children, it’s nice to see the field finally tackled from a refreshing female perspective. However, while an admirable vantage point of the trapped in adultlescence genus, “Laggies,” the new film by director Lynn Shelton, is often wildly implausible (even for a comedy), positions its sympathies in questionable places and is a mess of a movie that lands all over the place. Megan (Keira Knightley) has a posse of pals from high school, which includes her patient and ineffectual boyfriend (Mark Webber) and her prissy, uptight best friend (Ellie Kemper, who needs to find a new archetype to try out stat). Initially BFFs forever, Megan’s lack of growth soon finds herself at odds from her friends, who are planning weddings, having babies and moving forward in their lives. Stunted, with zero direction, she »

Topping off her look with wet hair and dramatic eyeshadow, it's safe to say it would make one of her Wizards of Waverly Place co-stars very upset.

But though she might be sporting a much more mature look nowadays, Selena recently admitted that she's still "trying to figure out" who she is.

Val from 'Survivor' talks about her 'outlandish, ridiculous lie'

2 October 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

She made one of the most inexplicable lies in Survivor history — claiming she had two hidden immunity idols after only 6 days, and thereby immediately and nonsensically paining a huge target right on her own back. And it cost her. Val Collins was the second person voted off of Survivor: San Juan del Sur last night — a victim of her own self-sabotage. But as if being booted from the game wasn’t bad enough, she also had to call into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) this morning to explain her actions, and now you can hear the entire conversation right here on the InsideTV Podcast. »

Jeff Garlin isn't a fan of Selena Gomez's sexy image. 

Selena Gomez certainly started donning sexier styles after leaving Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place, but one of her former co-stars isn't thrilled with her new persona.

Jeff Garlin, who played Uncle Kelbo on the Disney Channel show, had some harsh words to say about the 22-year-old's image during his chat with HuffPost Live. "I worked with [Gomez] for three years, and I love her. She is, at least in terms of what I saw, a great kid," Garlin prefaced.

"But then I see her sexualized. When I see her sexualized, I look at her, and I look at this Ariana Grande... Both beautiful girls, but they have baby fat! They look like kids!"

Speaking on her bikini-clad role in the 2012 film Spring Breakers, the 52-year-old continued, "I'm by myself in the theater, and I couldn't have felt dirtier. Great bikini »
