Adam Sandler & Chris Rock in Teaser Trailer for Netflix's 'The Week Of'

"Also, I would crank up the A/C, just gimme a nod." Netflix has debuted the first teaser trailer for the new Adam Sandler comedy premiering on the streaming service, titled The Week Of. As much as this should make you groan, this comedy is actually directed by the great Robert Smigel, most well known for his work on "Saturday Night Life". Adam Sandler and Chris Rock star as two "very different" fathers who come together to marry their children together, resulting in a crazy weird, wild, hilarious "week of" the wedding. The full cast includes Steve Buscemi, Rob Morgan, Rachel Dratch, Scott Cohen, Patricia Belcher, and Melanie Nicholls-King. This teaser doesn't show much, but thankfully this doesn't look as awful as Sandler's other Netflix movies. So, that's something. Hopefully it's not a disaster. Get your first look below. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Robert Smigel's The Week Of,

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mary Goes Round’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mary Goes Round’
A prodigal daughter returns in “Mary Goes Round,” discovering that the personal problems she’s been studiously ignoring only grow more inescapable in the presence of the estranged family members who more or less caused them. Molly McGlynn’s somewhat autobiographically inspired debut feature bears a certain resemblance to James Ponsoldt’s 2012 “Smashed,” with a similar young, middle-class alcoholic as heroine. But this film is lighter in tone, successfully blending drama and humor in a way that skirts pat dramedy. This modest but winning effort should do well on the festival circuit, and possibly beyond.

Mary (Aya Cash) is a 29-year-old Toronto resident with a serious partying jones. When after a latest inebriate night we see her among an addicts’ support group, we assume she’s ready to mend her ways. Then we realize she’s the meeting’s (not very good) facilitator. Working as a professional substance-abuse counselor gives Mary additional incentive to deny she’s

Montclair Review: ‘The Strange Ones’ is Exceptionally-Directed, Maddeningly Plotted

The Strange Ones is a maddening, yet exceptionally-directed debut feature from acclaimed short filmmaking duo Lauren Wolkstein and Christopher Radcliff, adapted from their 2011 short the film of the same name. Opening with a series of images, The Strange Ones never gives away the story, allowing us to wonder with two guys whom seem to be brothers, Nick (Alex Pettyfer), the protective older one, and Jeremiah (James Freedson-Jackson), the younger one. Running from a burning house revealed to us quickly in the film’s evocative opening sequence, they soon find themselves in a motel where desk clerk Kelly (Emily Althaus) offers to let them stay for free off-season. Nick, it would appear, has been providing additional compensation to Kelly, although looks can be incredibly deceiving as Jeremiah berates Kelly for trusting Nick, claiming him to be cruel, violent, and gay in a chilling monologue.

Nick seemingly holds special supernatural powers, telling

Rookie Blue: Season Five Ratings

There doesn't seem to be much danger of ABC's Rookie Blue being cancelled any time soon. The show is produced in Canada and the fifth season has 22 episodes (instead of the usual 13). However, they're being split into two parts -- half will air this summer while the rest will run at a later date. This kind of move often spells the end for a series. Will there be a sixth season? Stay tuned.

Rookie Blue continues to follow a group of newbie cops as they work at the fictional 15 Division. The cast includes Missy Peregrym, Gregory Smith, Ben Bass, Travis Milne, Enuka Okuma, Charlotte Sullivan, Peter Mooney, Priscilla Faia, Matt Gordon, Rachel Ancheril, Melanie Nicholls-King, Adam MacDonald, Aliyah O’Brien, Oliver Becker, and Matt Murray.

'Orphan Black' finale: Were our questions answered?

Turns out being the offspring of a genetically-modified clone has its upsides - after being flattened by a speeding car last week, Sarah's sprog Kira (Skyler Wexler) makes a miraculous recovery as Orphan Black's final double-bill begins…

Except Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) doesn't believe in miracles and neither do we - does Kira possess some sort of healing ability or enhanced durability as a result of what's been done to her mother?

In the aftermath of the accident, Sarah has her sights set on Helena, while Tomas (Daniel Kash) has his sights set on Sarah - but he doesn't reckon on his unhinged clone-killer turning on him and soon Tomas is left cowering - brutalised and locked in the same cage where he once kept Helena…

With all this going on, episode nine 'Unconscious Selection' just has time to pack in one final humongous twist - possibly the biggest jaw-dropper

'Rookie Blue' Season 4, Episode 8: Noelle and Frank's wedding plans go 'For Better, For Worse'

Rarely do things run smoothly for the "Rookie Blue" cops -- even their own nuptials.

Noelle (Melanie Nicholls-King) and Frank's (Lyriq Bent) wedding wasn't exactly like clockwork in Thursday's (Aug. 8) episode of the ABC drama, "For Better, For Worse." Even with the ceremony taking place that evening, much remained in flux, prompting Andy (Missy Peregrym) to try to take the organizational lead. 

Meanwhile, claiming she was getting "lying hives," Chloe (Priscilla Faia) begged Dov (Gregory Smith) to tell Frank -- her godfather and their boss -- about their off-duty relationship. It wouldn't be an easy day for Chloe in another way; she was partnered with angry-as-usual Gail (Charlotte Sullivan), whom Chloe had informed about the crush that Gail's now-ex-boyfriend Nick (Peter Mooney) had on Andy.

Andy and Nick also were partners for the day, with Andy starting it by crooning along to Extreme's "More Than Words" -- the tune she

'Rookie Blue' recap: 'Homecoming' for Andy ... and a bank robber

"You're Andy McNally. You don't give up."

You said it, Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon) ... and his fellow cop McNally (Missy Peregrym) proved it several times over Thursday (May 30) as ABC's "Rookie Blue" aired episode 2 of Season 4, "Homecoming." And the story, respectively written and directed by series veterans Russ Cochrane and David Wellington, reaffirmed that the show continually succeeds by being as much (if not more) about the regular characters as the given week's crime.

On her first day back on the job after the undercover mission that took her and Nick Collins (Peter Mooney) away from 15 Division for several months, Andy wasted no time getting back into literal action. Spared by Oliver's quick intervention from having to ride with Marlo Cruz (Rachael Ancheril) -- the new flame of Andy's ex, Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) -- Andy sensed trouble upon seeing someone flee from a bank.

Of course, she was correct: robbery in progress.

Denette Wilford: Why I'm Happy For the Return of 'Rookie Blue'
William Shatner may be best known for playing Captain Kirk, T.J. Hooker, Denny Crane and the dad that was notorious for saying a whole bunch of shat $#*!, but the actor is out to prove he's more than just his legendary characters (well, three legends and a one-season grump).

The Emmy winner guest-stars on the season 3 premiere of "Rookie Blue" as Henry McLeod, and as ABC's press release describes him, he's "a belligerent drunk driver with a haunting secret." Punching Dov (Gregory Smith) in the face, while reeking of whisky? Definitely. But there's so much more to his character. More on that in a bit.

I've loved "Rookie Blue" since it debuted two years ago. I have a real fondness for the stars, who I've spoken to on numerous occasions (whether it's on location or in a fancy hotel suite), but there's something about the series that makes me proud. Sure,

ABC Announces Summer 2012 Schedule – Duets, Secret Millionaire, Rookie Blue, And More

ABC announced their summer offering schedule, though the big kick is coming as early May 14th with The Bachelorette. New and returning shows are likely to get a fair amount of marketing love, as summer programming, especially with the influx of cable hotlist shows, has taken off over the last few years.

Rookie Blue looks fairly interesting, and Secret Millionaire did pretty well before, so we’ve got that at least. Keep a close eye on Trust Us With Your Life, and mark your calendars. The odd spin on improv comedy could be hilarious.

Check out the rundown below.

Thursday, May 24:

8:00-10:00 p.m. “Duets” (series premiere) 10:00-11:00 p.m. “Rookie Blue

Rookie Blue Round Table: "God's Good Grace"

  • TVfanatic
Welcome to the first-ever edition of the Rookie Blue Round Table!

Below, staff writer Christine Orlando is joined by three TV Fanatic readers - Jen, Ashley and Sam - as they dissect, "God's Good Grace," the second season finale. As always, fan feedback is encouraged on the following topics...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Would you prefer to see Gail paired romantically with Chris, Dov, or Luke? Why?

Jen: I'm not really sure she should be with anyone right now. It would be kinda cool to see her with Dov but then there's a downside to Dov and Gail potentially being together, Chris would probably go back to being mad at Dov and Gail.

Ashley: Dov. Although they are always arguing and disagreeing, I really saw more of a connection between Dov and Gail this season. They have that whole butting heads thing going on right now, and sometimes that's how it starts. Earlier in the season,

Global, a Canadian TV network, will renew Rookie Blue, a dramatic series about five rookie cops, for a third season.

Hi everyone, I've been lurking on this site for a while but have decided that it's time to have more of a presence. This is my very first blog post ever. This site is such a great way for TV fans to connect with one another I thought I would write about my favourite show- Rookie Blue.For those of you not familiar with the show it's a Canadian creation airing on ABC in the States & Global TV in Canada. It follows the training period (which can be as long as five years) of five new police recruits or 'rookies' as they find their feet in 'fifteen division' in Toronto. The show has a stellar cast of mostly Canadian talent, I first started watching this show when it aired here at the start of the year & it quickly became my favourite, the thing I like about
