90s Family Comedy Problem Child To Be Rebooted By NBC

16 September 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems Problem Child has been adopted from the orphanage once more as NBC are reportedly in talks to bring back the 90s family comedy to the small screen.

News comes by way of The Hollywood Reporter, who tell us that the network is currently putting out the proverbial feelers in search of a screenwriter.

Based on the John Ritter film of the same name, Problem Child is a half-hour, single-camera comedy that orbits around a couple’s trials and tribulations with a young adopted prankster named Junior — a devil in disguise that has been adopted from a local orphanage thirty times.

The film spawned two sequels — Problem Child 2 and Problem Child 3: Junior in Love — that were released in 1991 and 1995, respectively. In fact, the franchise also resulted in a spin-off TV show that was sandwiched in between the two aforementioned sequels, which underpins the IP’s lasting appeal — in the 90s, »

Ray Rice -- The Jokes Begin ... Gilbert Gottfried Zings NFL Star

10 September 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Too soon? Apparently not ... according to Gilbert Gottfried who finally decided to put Ray Rice in the comedy crosshairs. "Obviously Ray Rice misunderstood me when I said 'She's hot, you should definitely hit that!'" ... Gilbert tweeted. Cracking jokes on timely news stories is kinda Gilbert's thing -- and he also knows there can be consequences ... like when he was fired from his job as the voice of the Aflac duck back in 2011 after joking about the tsunami in Japan. »

Lifetime's The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story aired Monday night, and the Internet had a great many thoughts on it.

Catch Gilbert Gottfried Doing The Epic Speech From Independence Day

22 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Gilbert Gottfried has made a career out of his unique voice and comedic time, creating some of memorable.and amusing.characters in film over the years. He.s probably best known for voicing Iago in Aladdin, but more recently, he decided to do redo a famous speech from another nineties hit, Independence Day. The result turns the rousing speech into a comedy goldmine, and is definitely worth a watch. In the short, 2-minute video, the footage from Independence Day is exactly what you will remember, with Bill Pullman standing in front of a ragtag band of civilians willing to get into janky planes and give up their lives in order to potentially save humanity from the threat of an alien invasion. Pullman.s speech ties freedom and Independence Day together in ways that are not the least bit cornball and actually, understandably, gets a group of random assholes to want »

Recap: 'Big Brother' Wednesday - Who's Most Embarrassing?

14 August 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I wish Gilbert Gottfried, who voiced Otev last night in "Big Brother's" traditional Pov challenge centered around the fictional boss, had really ripped into the houseguests and said in his trademark screech, "What an annoying bunch of houseguests this year! What horrible voices! For Christ's sake! Morons."   Because they are annoying this year. Frankly, with Jocasta out of the house for now, we're really missing a core type of personality in the game: a happy person. Yeah, Cody is sort of affable. Christine seems friendly, and I loved her Hoh blog this week. Donny is part possum, and possums always seem satisfied. But Jocasta truly beamed. She was never dogged by being on the block, and she usually responded to the threat of elimination by dialing herself up on a fake phone and throwing down an incoherent one-liner about God. Oh, how I miss it. Rumor is God does too. »

Time is putting out a special commemorative issue on late actor comedian Robin Williams, who succumbed to depression and took his own life on Monday. Due on Friday, August 15, the magazine is packed with tributes from Alan AldaPatch Adams, Lewis BlackDick Cavett, Richard Corliss, Margaret Cho, Gilbert GottfriedNathan LaneBill MaherJim Norton, James Poniewozik, Joan Rivers, among others. Corliss writes in his obituary: “He could play anyone, but not just one: not ‘just’ Robin Williams. All those voices in the head of this comic Hamlet must have told him it was time to be quiet. The rest is silence.” Dick Cavett: “Robin and I agreed once that it’s galling to hear — when you’re ‘in it’ — the question: ‘What have you got to be depressed about?’ The great British actor and comedian, Stephen Fry, a fellow sufferer, replies ‘And what have you got to have asthma about? »

'Last Comic Standing' Recap: Leno's Words of Wisdom

31 July 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

If you thought that Gilbert Gottfried was a great guest, you'll be falling out of your seats tonight. The one and only Jay Leno is on deck to mentor our remaining comedians, and the competition is starting to get pretty tight.

Jb Smoove starts the show by trying to bust into the judges' lounge. Russell Peters has a cup of coffee in hand, as he tries to tell Jb he's not allowed in. "Judges only," Russell recites. Jb then calls him racist, and says he's going in the room for some coffee anyway. Judge Milian from The People's Court comes out for some unexplained reason, and challenges entry once again. Roseanne also spouts out a few lines, and Jb mentions that he just wants some hot cocoa. My gosh, this is a painful and unnecessary bit. 

It turns out that Jay's mentoring was all pre-taped, as we're shown clips of »

Hannibal @ Comic-Con: A Huge Return, Much Gillian Anderson and (Hopefully) Clarice Feed the Thriller's Future

24 July 2014 5:54 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Hannibal fans were hungry for scoop at Comic-Con on Thursday, so executive producer Bryan Fuller sated them with tasty morsels at the show’s panel discussion.

Related NBC Execs Talk Hannibal Season 3

As an appetizer, the Ep unveiled a surprise guest who’ll be a “huge part of Season 3”: Raul Esparza, who played the presumed dead Dr. Frederick Chilton. (Eddie Izzard will also return in a flashback.)

“I can’t believe how much people fell in love with Chilton this season,” Esparza effused. “I love playing the part because he’s a total douchebag.”

'Last Comic Standing' Recap: The Roast with the Most

24 July 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

This week, our fearless comedians will be competing in a challenge that seems kind of easy. They'll be roasting none other than the legendary Gilbert Gottfried. I say easy, because --come on. That guy has both purposely and accidentally created so much roast material throughout his career. I seriously hope someone mentions his stint as Iago in the Aladdin films.

There are only six comics left this week, and the contestants are under pressure. Jb Smoove starts out by discussing the idea behind a roast. It's about "honoring and ribbing at the same time," he says. Then he breaks the news that the honored guest will be Gilbert. And in case the comics (and the viewing audience) are unfamiliar with Gilbert, Jb rolls a montage of memorable Gilbert moments and trivia. For over 40 years, Gilbert's squint and voice helped him "succeed in everything!" his video states. "If masturbation is a crime, »

Guy Sings Original Song in 29 Celebrity Voices

9 July 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If you haven't seen this yet, you've got to check it out! It's been on my list of things to watch the last couple of days. I finally got around to watching it, and I wish I would have done it sooner! The video features Rob Cantor impressively singing an original song in 29 different voices. He hits each one of them perfectly, including the female voices such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. It's amazing to hear what this guy can pull off. 

Update: This video is actually done by several other voice impersonators that Cantor lip-syncs too. Here's the full list of impersonators. I've also included a making-of video that you can watch.

Brock Baker: Jack Black, Kermit the Frog, Smeagol / Gollum, Peter Griffin, Adam Sandler, Patrick Warburton, Jon Lovitz

Gilbert Gauthier: Frank Sinatra

Amanda Gari: Cher, Flipper

Reagan James: Gwen Stefani

Bora Karaca: Whistle

Film Review: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ Suffers Because Seth MacFarlane Casts Himself

31 May 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – A feature-length comedy is a daunting undertaking. But being consistently funny for 2 straight hours is like climbing Mount Everest blindfolded with no arms while taking selfies using your feet.

Special effects mean nothing in the land of comedy. It’s all about the writing and the acting (in that order). To give you a sense of who you’re working with here, I find “Anchorman” hilarious and “Burn After Reading” for a dark comedy. Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted” hits more than it misses, but his return accomplishes the reverse with “A Million Ways to Die in the West” without a reason for being.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Double entendres like “That’s horseshit!” (referring to intentionally placed manure in the middle of a statement of disdain) fall flat while a game at the fair called “Runaway Slave” is genuinely funny (and finds a way for a recently unchained man to appear for a perfect post-credits cameo). Likewise, »
