10 Sitcom Pilots Inspired by Real People: Which Will You Watch?

23 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week, in the wake of Eddie Huang's complaints that he felt ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" was distorting and softening his childhood experiences, this column examined how hard it is for any biographical or autobiographical sitcom to be true to the life of its source and still be a crowd-pleasing primetime network entertainment. You'd think, after decades of trying, TV writers and network programming executives would be aware of this.

Nonetheless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the networks have no fewer than ten such sitcom pilots in production, as the first episodes of potential 2015-16 primetime series. Some are based on the lives of already famous entertainers, some on the self-referential stand-up comedy routines of not-quite-famous comics, and some on memoirsts who've lived interesting lives.

Here's a rundown of these pilots, with a look at who these shows are about, who's starring in them, what the series might be like, »

Film Review: Imagine What Could Have Been for ‘Danny Collins’

27 March 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Danny Collins” is a shoulda-woulda-coulda film. It was inspired by the true story of a John Lennon letter acquired by a musician 40 years after he was suppose to to have received it, and then re-imagined as a cheap soap opera, punctuated by far superior John Lennon songs.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

There is nothing wrong with changing the story. The musician who actually received the letter thought it was nice, but probably then thought, “I have to pay my mortgage this month.” In “Danny Collins,” the rocker is played with little believability by a too-tan Al Pacino, and he is a filthy rich rock star, “selling out” shows during a dinosaur road tour. Throw in the estranged son with a deathly disease – yeah, they went there – and the whole John Lennon vibe is lost on a sappy, silly story that should have been much more interesting, considering the elements it was given »

Fans Visiting the 'Full House' House Miss Uncle Jesse Standing Right Out Front

7 March 2015 1:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Pretty much everyone who was alive in the '90s watched Full House. To this day, fans like to visit the iconic San Francisco row house that served as the Tanner family residence. On Friday, John Stamos stopped by his former TV home, but didn't receive the warm welcome he might have been expecting.

He posted a photo on Instagram of himself standing in front of the house while oblivious tourists got shots of the facade. (It's been repainted since it appeared on the show.)

"Boy, these youngsters have 0.0 idea what they're missing," he wrote, adding "#Fullhousehouse. #Turnaround."

Pics: John Stamos Just Gets Better With Age

Stamos has been chronicling his visit to the Bay Area on social media. On March 3, he posted this pic of himself on a boat ride.

Flashback: 'Snow Day' Turns 15! Chilling With the Cast in 2000

13 February 2015 4:35 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It's been 15 years since we first wreaked havoc on Snowplowman and listening to the sounds of Hoku in Snow Day. Et chilled with the cast of the frosty flick back in 2000.

“This is my first movie and it couldn't be better!” a then 13-year-old Josh Peck told Et. “To sum up Snow Day in three words – wet, cold and fun!”

SNL alum Chevy Chase played the resident meteorologist in the movie -- and Chase was quite familiar with his own snow day tricks as a kid.

“When I was going to Riverdale in New York we took a couple of buckets of water. We knew it was going to be way below freezing and we just poured it all over the driveway and the next morning the buses couldn't get up because of the frozen tundra,” said Chase.

Movie Review – The Wedding Ringer (2015)

17 January 2015 1:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wedding Ringer, 2015.

Directed by Jeremy Garelick.

Starring Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Olivia Thirlby, Alan Ritchson, Josh Peck, Cloris Leachman and Jorge Garcia.

Synopsis:

Two weeks shy of his wedding, a socially awkward guy enters into a charade by hiring the owner of a company that provides best men for grooms in need.

Confession time: I find Kevin Hart and his unlimited energy for hyperactive comedy antics a hoot. We are talking so funny to the point that I almost automatically to an extent can enjoy anything Kevin Hart is a part of. He knows how to deliver lines, make the most of his limited physical stature for laughs, and how to take his frenetic style of comedy and turn it into a sledgehammer of a weapon.

So it goes without saying that I did find parts of The Wedding Ringer hilarious, but make no mistake about it, »

Film Review: Kevin Hart Takes a Plunge in ‘The Wedding Ringer’

16 January 2015 10:12 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Wedding Ringer” is a Wedding Stinker. It’s a misogynistic trip through a barren land of hackneyed premises, stock characters, female stereotypes and strained physical gags that exemplifies everything that is wrong with big studio comedies today.

The sheer fact that it even lunges out of the starting gate is a credit to the whirlwind of activity from star Kevin Hart. But the little man’s riffing can’t shock this film to life.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

Hart plays Jimmy - a professional best man for hire. He’ll give you the best man of your dreams for a very lucrative price. He’s apparently very successful – despite the fact his business is run out of a basement inside a run-down go-cart track. It’s really just another character that allows for Hart to run his mouth off. In one of the hoariest plot devices to come out of the old Hollywood script-o-matic, »
