‘That Thing You Do!’ Twenty-One Years Later: The Gay Subplot That Never Made it Into Theaters

‘That Thing You Do!’ Twenty-One Years Later: The Gay Subplot That Never Made it Into Theaters
They just don’t make ’em like they used to. When “That Thing You Do!” waltzed into our hearts twenty-one years ago today, it heralded the arrival of Tom Hanks — screenwriter and director. A commercial and critical success, “That Thing You Do!” is the kind of low-budget runaway hit that major Hollywood studios just don’t make anymore. An addictively fun tale of one adorable boy band’s rise to fame, decorated with stylish 1960s period panache, the movie starred Hanks as the band’s kind-hearted manager, Mr. White. What many people don’t know, however, is that Mr. White originally had a hunky boyfriend (hilariously played by former NFL player Howie Long).

In a deleted scene included in the director’s cut, Mr. White finds lead singer Guy (“La La Land” star Tom Everett Scott) stumbling drunkenly out of the convertible of an alluring waitress (played by Hanks’ wife,

‘I’m Sorry’: Andrea Savage Created a Comedy Filled With Uncomfortable Moments, But Is Never Dark

‘I’m Sorry’: Andrea Savage Created a Comedy Filled With Uncomfortable Moments, But Is Never Dark
“The whole show is not about buttholes, I promise you.”

An unconventional reassurance, but Andrea Savage is right. “I’m Sorry,” the latest, freshest comedy from TruTV, is about family, love, and the strange ways we have of sharing strange moments with each other. Savage stars as a comedy writer in La, making her way through the colliding perils that come with being a parent and living with a minimal filter. Andrea (the character’s name, as well) has a loving family, made up of husband Mike (Tom Everett Scott) and daughter Amelia (Olive Petrucci).

This particular day on set, though, they’re filming a scene at a poker table where the between-hands banter turns to some unconventional bedroom habits. We’ll let guest star Jason Mantzoukas take it from here.

Kyle's idea of the perfect date is also a great way to get brain freeze. Watch a sneak peek from Wednesday's all-new #ImSorryTV!

‘I’m Sorry’ Review: A Sweet and Filthy Tribute to the Messiness of Being a Constant Comedian

  • Indiewire
‘I’m Sorry’ Review: A Sweet and Filthy Tribute to the Messiness of Being a Constant Comedian
Andrea and Mike aren’t perfect parents, but they’re trying. Maybe a little too hard at times. Such is the joy of “I’m Sorry,” the new TruTV series from writer/producer Andrea Savage, who stars as a dramatized version of herself, navigating life in La as a working comedian.

“I’m Sorry” follows Andrea on the everyday journey through a very specific La parenting world. With husband Mike (Tom Everett Scott) and a preschool-aged daughter Amelia (Olive Petrucci), Andrea navigates a world where preschool birthday parties can occasionally dovetail with unexpected conversations about the careers of adult film stars. Andrea the character is a comedy writer, and her penchant for joking her way out of awkward situations frequently catches the disapproving eyes of fellow parents.

TV Review: ‘I’m Sorry,’ From Andrea Savage

Andrea Warren (Andrea Savage) is a happily married mom with intermittent work and chronic verbal diarrhea. That’s it, that’s the show. Savage — who created, executive produces, writes, and stars in the show — is a delightful, energetic screen presence, with a brand of humor that somehow delivers butt jokes with charm. But there’s otherwise very little to distinguish this sweet little show from other Los Angeles-based autobiographical single-camera comedies about the unfunny business of parenting, marriage, and being in your 40s: In betweenBetter Things,” “St. George,” “Maron,” “Nobodies,” “Lady Dynamite,” “Take My Wife,” and significant chunks of “One Mississippi” — the list goes on and on and on — a show would have to be particularly entrancing to stand out from the crowd. But while the show is lightweight and enjoyable in all the right ways, it’s more of this same well-trodden genre.

The highlight of the series are Andrea’s relationships — such as the

The Last Word Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Richard Phippen

So you’re reaching the end of your life, you wonder how you’re going to be remembered, if at all. Then you realise, everyone hates you. Your legacy is so utterly negative that your best hope is to be forgotten. What do you do? In journeyman director Mark Pellington’s film, based of first-time writer Stuart Ross Fink’s script, the answer is to write your own obituary.

Or at least, that’s what retired and rich businesswoman Harriet Lauler (Shirley MacLaine) decides to do when she realises she doesn’t have much many miles left on her clock. Indeed, Harriet bullies local newspaper editor Ron (Tom Everett Scott) into sending his obits writer Anne (Amanda Seyfried) to meet Harriet at home, get to know her, talk to friends and family and focus a life story article on the good stuff. Sadly for Harriet, there’s

Newswire: Tituss Burgess to play a psychic in I Hate Kids

  • The AV Club
On Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Tituss Burgess’ Titus Andromedon is an unstoppable force of nature, but he has frustratingly few actual superpowers. Thankfully, that will change for Burgess’ appearance in I Hate Kids, a new comedy film starring Tom Everett Scott (from That Thing You Do and the end of La La Land). The movie is about a writer who doesn’t like kids and is about to get married, but on the night of his rehearsal dinner, a young boy arrives and claims to be his son. According to Deadline, Burgess will play a psychic named The Amazing Fabular who confirms that the boy is telling the truth, because everyone knows that the word of a psychic is the only reliable metric for determining one’s parentage.

Trailer Watch: Andrea Savage Is a Funny Mom in “I’m Sorry”

Andrea Savage: trutv.com

“Sorry. I forgot moms aren’t supposed to be funny,” Andrea Savage tells her TV husband in a new trailer for “I’m Sorry.” Created by Savage, the TruTV series sees the “Veep” alumna playing a comedy writer, wife, and undeniably funny mom.

The spot is full of great one-liners from Andrea (Savage), who makes her husband (Tom Everett Scott, “Reign”), daughter (Olive Petrucci), and friends simultaneously laugh and wince when she sounds off on everything from the folks who hired a model-looking woman to care for their children (“Who was insane enough to hire Gigi Hadid as their nanny?”) to her husband’s animal counterpart (“You’re like a raccoon. You look super cute, but inside you’re garbage.”).

“Andrea draws storytelling inspiration from her own life and has a unique ability to make horrifying moments somehow charming and hilarious,” said truTV head of programming Marissa Ronca when the comedy was first picked up. “We love this project and her point of view because it’s smart, nuanced, relatable, and, most importantly, funny — and the perfect fit for the type of distinct, creator-driven comedy we’re curating at truTV.”

Savage’s recent credits include “iZombie,” “Episodes,” and “The Hotwives of Las Vegas.”

Watch the trailer for “I’m Sorry” to see guest star Judy Greer give Andrea some much-needed advice about social cues and to hear Andrea tell her daughter about how babies are born. The series premieres July 12.

Trailer Watch: Andrea Savage Is a Funny Mom in “I’m Sorry” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
