Quiz: The Films of Jason Bateman

12 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s widely agreed that there is no shortage of comedic talent in the film industry today. With actors like Jason Segel, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Tina Fey, and Paul Rudd showing no sign of taking any time off from their day jobs, at any given time one can typically find at least one comedy featuring one of these popular leads in theatres.

Jason Bateman is one of the stand-out actors working today, building a solid reputation as one of the industry’s funniest leading men. He started acting in comedy at a young age, working in a number of television shows in the 80s and 90s. In 2003, he took on the role of Michael Bluth in a little show called "Arrested Development". This went on to become one of his most critically acclaimed performances, and the demand to bring the Bluths back was so high that another season was released on Netflix last year. »

Jimmy Fallon, Jason Segel, The Roots Play Family Feud With Steve Harvey

11 September 2014 4:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Jimmy Fallon gave the reins of his program over to Steve Harvey, and the result is the funniest 12 minutes of television I’ve seen in months. Harvey hosts a special Tonight Show edition of Family Feud with Jason Segel, Jimmy and Higgins of the Fallon family facing off against Questlove, Tarik and James of The Roots family. The game featured three rounds of questions, with survey answers provided by The Tonight Show’s studio audience. In the first round, the teams had to name other terms for marijuana; in the second, they had to list instruments that were least likely to get band members groupies; and in the third, they were asked to fill in a blank sentence. The expressions on Harvey’s face are priceless. Watch the video below. Enjoy!

Sex Tape Finds Much Needed Success In The U.K.

9 September 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Despite being fronted by such beloved comedy stars as Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz, Sex Tape flopped at the domestic box office. But its reputation could well be saved thanks to some enthusiastic fans across the pond. THR reports Sex Tape is thriving in the United Kingdom. While the comedy opened without a bang in the Us last July, it has just hit in the U.K., and it's hitting hard. Box office tracker Rentrak estimates the Jason Segel/Cameron Diaz rom-com has pulled in $2.3 million in its UK debut, where it played on just 441 screens. That may not sound like an impressive number when compared to the fat figures that typically mark U.S. box office winners, but it's great news for the Sony comedy. The saucy Sex Tape has Diaz and Segel playing a married couple in desperate need of a jolt to their sex life. A wild »

Steve Harvey was flabbergasted while hosting 'Family Feud' on 'The Tonight Show'

9 September 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you ever wondered what game show hosts really think of their contestants, look no further than Steve Harvey. For years he has been wearing his heart on his sleeve and his look of "Are you serious right now?" on his face for "Family Feud." Last night, Harvey brought all that magic to "The Tonight Show" with questions like "What's another name for marijuana?" Can Team Fallon — with guest star Jason Segel — win or will Team Questlove take home the glory? »

'Sex Tape' Scores in U.K. After Flopping in U.S.

9 September 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Despite a somewhat limp performance in the U.S., debuting in fourth place in July and scoring just $38.1 million so far, Sex Tape has won the top spot on its opening weekend in the U.K. Sony’s Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel-starring romantic comedy may have been described in the U.K. press as “depressingly dreary” (The Guardian) and "never on full thrust, settling for tentative gags with underwear firmly in place” (The Telegraph), but it still scored $2.3 million (£1.43 million) on 441 screens, including $717,000 in previews, according to figures from box-

Best of Late Night TV: Mel Brooks Dons Drag for Joan Rivers's 'Late Show,' Jason Segel and Steve Harvey Play 'Family Feud' (Video)

9 September 2014 12:51 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Mel Brooks stopped by "Conan" to reminisce about his dearly departed friend Joan Rivers, who the comedian praised as "sharp, very brilliant, and very funny." Brooks said part of Rivers's brilliance was her willingness to make jokes about dark or unfamiliar subject matter with a fearlessness that was inspiring. Host Conan O'Brien then cued up a clip from when the comedian guest-hosted Rivers's "Late Show" in 1986, and Brooks took a unique approach to the job: donning one of Rivers's dresses, and doing the show in full drag, complete with wig, jewelry, makeup, nail polish, and heels. It's a great gag, and a fun way to remember just how eventful »

Venice Film Review: ‘No One’s Child’

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It takes a pack of wolves to raise the young protagonist of “No One’s Child,” and the dogs of of war to drop him back into the abyss. Such is the cruel arc of Serbian writer-director Vuk Rsumovic’s captivating debut feature, based on the true story of a feral boy’s gradual assimilation into supposed civilization after being discovered in the Bosnian wilderness. Integrating universal human drama with pointed political context whileBoosted by a deserved Critics’ Week victory at Venice, this “Child” is unlikely to go unclaimed by distributors and further fest programmers for long.

The premise of “No One’s Child” might lead savvy viewers to expect a virtual rerun of Francois Truffaut’s neglected 1970 gem “The Wild Child.” Indeed, the films do open similarly, with a title card solemnly establishing the story’s fact-based credentials leading into a tense, agitated sequence depicting the woodland flush-out of »

Jason Segel: 5 Awesome Performances & 5 That Sucked

6 September 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

At the relatively young age of 34, Jason Segel has worked wonders for his career: even if you’re not convinced by that goofy face and offhand charisma, chances are you’re familiar with at least some of his work. A talented individual in a number of creative avenues, Segel first came to us as a character in Judd Apatow’s daftly underrated and short-lived TV classic Freaks & Geeks. Since then, he’s made us laugh time and time again, and – best -of all – brought The Muppets back to mainstream popularity.

Segel is also perhaps best known to the masses for his turn in TV’s How I Met Your Mother, in which he played the role of loveable schmuck Marshall Eriksen for a whopping 209 episodes. He’s also one of a small bunch of actors – many of whom worked on Freaks & Geeks – who, for some reason, is allowed »

Sex Tape movie review: for shame

4 September 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Color me absolutely astonished that this is genuinely sweet and wholly sex-positive. Unfortunately, it’s also completely unfunny. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of what passes for comedy in Hollywood

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

Annie (Cameron Diaz: The Other Woman, The Counsellor) and Jay (Jason Segel: This Is the End, The Five-Year Engagement) need to spice up their bedroom time: they’re still madly in love with each other, but their busy lives — including two rambunctious gradeschoolers — have left them just plain physically exhausted. So they decide to video themselves running through all the positions in The Joy of Sex. It works: they have a wonderful night. But a mishap with the Cloud and some iPads that they had given away as gifts — to family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances — sees the file accidentally distributed to all those other devices. »

Film Review: 'Sex Tape'

4 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆

Sex Tape (2014), the new Us comedy from Jake Kasdan, starts off on the front foot with some funny sight gags and its leads fully invested. However, just as it seems the film is going to pick up its pace, it loses its metaphorical erection, and becomes as limp as a Singapore noodle Newly coupled Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) spend their college downtime having sex in almost every room of their university, even the student library. Telling each other that they are not only in love but want to continue their sexual arrangement till death do they part, they're a perfect match. That changes when Annie falls pregnant and the two get married, and soon enough that vital spark in the bedroom is lost.

Cameron Diaz Speaks about Celeb Nude Photo Leaks

3 September 2014 9:04 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are speaking out against the mass hacking and leak of celebrity nude photos.

Following the unauthorized release of Nsfw pics featuring Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and dozens of other female stars, Diaz and Segel, who deal with a similar situation in their comedy Sex Tape, are defending the victims of the leak.

"What has happened in real life is a terrible crime," Jason said this week on the U.K. talk show This Morning. "It's very easy when you use the word 'celebrity' to take away the human aspect that that is an actual person, with a life. The whole tabloid culture to some extent dehumanizes the idea of what a celebrity is. This is a person."

"The movie is about a couple who has a self-inflicted technology fail, it's a very different thing," he added.
