'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' co-creator on Holt's promotion, Jake and Amy's slow-burn romance & more

17 May 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" just wrapped up its strong second season with its best episode of the year, dealing with Jake and Amy's awkward attraction for each other, Captain Holt trying to avoid being promoted out of the Nine-Nine by Chief Wuntch, and Boyle helping Diaz on her birthday. Rather than do a review, I reached out to "Brooklyn" co-creator and showrunner Dan Goor with some emailed questions about both the events of the finale and season 2 as a whole, coming up just as soon as I Don Johnson it... Did you know when you made the finale who the new captain would be? If not, do you know now, whether the specific performer or at least the type of character it is? And what are you comfortable saying?   Dan Goor: We did not know who the new captain would be when we came up with the finale.  We were really »

Ricky Gervais to Play David Brent Again in Life On The Road

13 May 2015 9:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There's The Office and then there's The Office. For many, that name conjures up images of Steve Carell and John Krasinski's hijinks, Mindy Kaling obsessing over B.J. Novak, and Craig Robinson routinely being the funniest person in the room. For others, however, the first thing that pops into their minds is Ricky Gervais's inexplicable David Brent, dancing and gyrating to calcified pop rock, or the great Martin Freeman flirting with Lucy Davis at the front desk. The former bid farewell to network television a few years ago, but the return of David Brent is seemingly imminent, as Entertainment One and BBC Films announced today that they will be co-funding and distributing Life on the Road, a feature-length film wherein a documentary crew catches up with Brent once again.

Watch: Trailer Debuts for NBC's 'Mr. Robinson' & 'The Carmichael Show' (Shaking Up Wednesday Nights)

9 May 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

NBC has set Wednesday, August 5, for the season debuts of a new hour-long block of comedies, with "Mr. Robinson" at 9 pm, immediately followed by "The Carmichael Show" at 9:30 pm. And we now have our first look at footage from both upcoming new series. "Mr Robinson" follows the lead singer and keyboardist of the funk band Nasty Delicious, Craig (played by Craig Robinson) who knows a thing or two about working the crowd, but his day job is where he really makes his money, while he waits for that big break. So when Craig finds himself short on cash, he takes a job as a substitute high school music teacher. The school principal (played by Peri Gilpin) believes that rules were made to be strictly upheld. She’s none too fond of Craig’s unorthodox teaching style, or his crush on the pretty English teacher (played by Meagan Good). It »

Comedy 'People Are Talking' gets an NBC series order

7 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Adding to its growing haul of new shows for the 2015-2016 season, NBC has given a series order to "People Are Talking," the network's first new comedy order of the spring. "People Are Talking" comes from writer DJ Nash and executive producer Will Packer ("Ride Along") and the multi-cam pilot was directed by "How I Met Your Mother" veteran Pamela Fryman. The Universal TV series looks at two couples who are neighbors and best friends, prone to "analyze and obsess about everything." The core quartet is played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Meaghan Rath, Tone Bell and Bresha Webb. Last week, NBC kicked off the spring pick-up season with series orders for the dramas "Chicago Med," "Blindspot" and "Heartbreaker."  NBC previously ordered the drama "Shade of Blue," starring Jennifer Lopez, to series, while the Eva Longoria comedy "Telenovela" was picked up in January. The venerable comedy "Coach" got a surprise resurrection notice back in March. »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Bubbling Up to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 19

29 April 2015 6:04 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Strip down to your skivvies and fire up the jets because Paramount Home Entertainment is bringing the raunchy comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 19 in a new "Hotter and Wetter Unrated Cut."

Craig RobinsonClark Duke and Rob Corddry are back for more time traveling shenanigans in the sequel to the goofy comedy hit. The film misfired at the box office with only $12 million in domestic tickets sales, but Paramount knew what they were getting into seeing as how the sequel had a budget roughly 1/3 of the original.

The Blu-ray combo edition of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 will be presented in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-hd Master Audio. Bonus features are fairly robust as you see below:

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Review

10 April 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

If the words “Ball Juice” and “Hot Tub” get you all excited, then you’re in for a treat with the sequel nobody asked for. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 has arrived, in what is obvious glitch in the space time continuum. The movie continues more or less where the original left off with our hapless fuck wits being incredibly successful and wealthy, after changing history in the last movie. Craig Robinson, Clarke Duke and Rob Corddry all reprise their roles with the obvious exception of John Cusack who appears in a photograph only. Robinson’s character Nick, is after recording every huge pop track in history and taking all the credit, and Lou (Corddry) has invented Lougle, with Jacob (Duke) being his long suffering son of sorts. When Lou finds himself in a spot of bother, the unlikely trio find themselves once again time travelling in a hot tub »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 movie review: time to say goodbye

9 April 2015 3:16 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Not so much a movie as a mismatched mix of dick jokes and rampant homophobia. I’m kidding: There aren’t any actual jokes here. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s not so much a movie as a collection of dick jokes and — and this is mildly interesting, in a way psychologically revealing of the creators — rampant homophobia, as if what we’re intended to hear is “Hey! You! Look at my penis! Unless you’re a dude, that would be gross.” Or maybe it’s “My penis is awesome! But not in a gay way!” Wait, I lie: There aren’t any actual jokes in Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Scenes sort of ramble on for long, humor-free minutes, getting nowhere near a joke, or even near the setup for a potential punchline. »

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 review: Stick to your DeLoreans and phone boxes

8 April 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Steve Pink; Screenwriter: Josh Heald; Starring: Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

2010's Hot Tub Time Machine came as a pleasant surprise. What looked like a dreadful frat-boy comedy with a silly premise was actually a genuinely funny and (at times) clever sci-fi comedy. It was only a matter of time for a sequel to be made, but has it come five years too late?

The sequel picks up where the first instalment left off, in a fantasy world where Lou (Rob Corddry) invented Google and Nick (Craig Robinson) has ripped off loads of pop songs years before they were meant to come out.

Sadly, John Cusack sat this one out as Adam, which is a shame as he brought a certain essence of seniority and was the gang's de facto leader. Without him there is a small void and the three main »

'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Unrated Cut Gag Reel | Exclusive

7 April 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Scott makes Clark Duke crack up by revealing a few hit "family shows" in the future in our exclusive gag reel for the 'Hotter and Wetter' Unrated Cut of Hot Tub Time Machine 2, which debuts on Digital HD formats and iTunes today before its Blu-ray and DVD release later this spring. Apparently, in this comedy sequel's version of the future, shows such as Butthole Party, Vagina Pander, Vagina Panda and Butthole Fiesta air at 7 Pm on Sunday nights. Adam Scott is one of the new cast members for this sequel, playing Adam Jr., the son of John Cusack's character from the 2010 comedy Hot Tub Time Machine.

Nick (Craig Robinson), Jacob (Clark Duke) and Lou (Rob Corddry) have all changed their lives thanks to the power of the hot tub time machine. Everything is going well until tragedy befalls Lou, who is now the inventor of the Internet. »
