Chicago – “Keeping Up With The Joneses” illustrates how hard it really is to make a funny action comedy. After watching this, I have begun to think that the ones that work are something of anomaly – more often than not they’re like this. An amiable but aimless project that can’t quite grasp what it wants to be and doesn’t have the vision or the laughs to sustain itself.
The film’s inspirations begin and sadly end with the casting. I have no problem with Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher as a domesticated suburban couple who have settled into boring routine. With the kids away at summer camp, they finally have some time to themselves. But all visions of out of control lovemaking are dismissed in a single montage by fears and worry. So they settle in to watch the Good Wife instead, but they’re intrigued and »

How’d that beloved tune from the “pre-fab four” go? “Another Pleasant Valley Sunday, here in status-symbol land”. Well, they might’ve been crooning about the locale of this new comedy. Everybody’s lawn is perfect, right out of American Beauty. Maybe even “picture perfect”, but more than a bit dull. Some of the residents perhaps secretly hope that things will get shaken up a tad. Ah, be careful what you wish for, so goes the old saying. That’s what happened in the final John Belushi/Dan Aykroyd team-up in 1981, Neighbors. But instead of that off-kilter, way-too friendly couple, the new arrivals bore more than a passing resemblance to Mr. & Mrs. Smith (not the Hitchcock comedy, but the first pairing of Pitt and Jolie). That’s the premise, as two “normals” risk life and limb when they’re Keeping Up With The Joneses.

The holiday season is when studios release their big awards contenders, but it's also a great time for an all-star comedy. This year, fans looking for some relief this Christmas can count on Paramount's Office Christmas Party, which looks like a wild time. Today, we have four clips from this outrageous laugh-fest. These new scenes arrive to celebrate National Boss's Day, offering never-before-seen footage from the December 9 release.
Jennifer Aniston stars in Office Christmas Party as the CEO of a company who tries to close her hard-partying brother's (Jason Bateman) branch. This leads the brother and his Chief Technical Officer to rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs. Both Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman lead a diverse cast of comedy and action all-stars, who can be seen in these clips from Paramount Pictures. »

Not a year goes by without the release of a festive-themed ensemble comedy to cram up theaters. It’s a Hollywood tradition that stretches all the way back to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and beyond, and one that will continue with the release of Office Christmas Party come December.
Acting as a welcome tonic to the R-rated shenanigans of Bad Santa 2, Josh Gordon and Will Speck’s star-studded romp is considered the more light-hearted of the two, centering on Jennifer Aniston’s CEO Carol Vanstone as she preps to shut down the company in the build up to the festive season. In a last-ditch effort to reverse their fortunes, Clay (T. J. Miller) and his Chief Technical Officer “must rally their co-workers and host an epic office Christmas party in an effort to impress a potential client and close a sale that will save their jobs.”

It had been reported back in August that Sony weren’t looking to push forward with a sequel to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, instead putting focus on a new animated movie and the cartoon series Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, which will debut in 2018. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Feig has admitted that he’s not heard anything from the studio about a potential sequel.
“Nothing that I am aware of,” he said. “You know, I think everybody is going to wait and see how the DVD sells and how our digital sales are. It’s expensive to make these movies and the people who paid for it, the studio, they’ve got to be the ones who want to make it and so far, no word. But I’m very proud of this film and if this is the only one I get to do and the only one with this team, »

Suspecting something is off with her new neighbor, Karen Gaffney (Isla Fisher) decides to spy on Natalie Jones (Gal Gadot) in a new clip from Keeping Up with the Joneses, in theaters October 21. What Karen doesn't quite realize is that Karen is an actual, real-life spy. After following her to a Bloomingdale's fitting room, Natalie surprises her by coming out of the fitting room wearing some skimpy lingerie.
20th Century Fox debuted this first clip on YouTube earlier today, arriving more than three months after the first trailer debuted. This spy comedy certainly will have quite the challenge when it opens in mid-October, during one of the most crowded weekends of the year. Keeping Up With the Joneses will hit theaters on October 21, going up against Paramount's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, Universal's Ouija: Origins of Evil, Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween and PureFlix's I'm Not Ashamed.

Last night was the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television academy takes the time to recognize some of the greatest accomplishments in the industry for the past season. Not surprisingly, the show that came out on top this year was none other than Game of Thrones, a show that seemingly only gets stronger and stronger as time goes on (despite the absence of source material at this point).
This also marked the year that Game of Thrones surpassed Frasier for the record total of Emmys won during a show run. Frasier previously held the record with 37 wins, and with two seasons left, Game of Thrones has secured the title with 38 wins, a record it's sure to barrel over over the course of the next couple seasons.
Below is the list of nominees and winners for several major categories at this year's Emmys!
Outstanding Drama Series

Just last night, the TV Oscars, the Emmys were dished out in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles. Game of Thrones was the big winner on the night, once again, bagging the top drama prize for the second year in a row (the show’s total number of awards now stands at 38), while Veep did the same in the comedy award. Mr Robot, Orphan Black and even Downton Abbey also received gongs, including one for our own Dame Maggie Smith. She picked up the award for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series, playing Violet Crawley in the show.
Here are the winners in full.

Peak TV finally got the Primetime Emmy Awards that it deserves.
Sure, “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” repeated their wins Sunday in the top drama and comedy series categories (giving HBO its second year of winning both). And legends like Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jeffrey Tambor continued their trophy dominance.
But underneath that, a whole new generation of fresh faces picked up their first-ever Emmys on Sunday night. Actors and actresses that seemed like long-shots just a few years ago were instead embraced by a large voting body that appears ready to embrace the new talent earning raves in this new golden era of Peak TV. Superstars and newbies alike hit the stage, and even the surprise winners were hard to argue.

Emmy voters love lots of shows, but they don’t love any of them all the way. They love “Game of Thrones” enough to give it the award for Outstanding Drama Series for the second consecutive year, but not enough to give acting awards to Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke or Maisie Williams, even though Harington and Headey were considered pre-show favorites. They love “Veep” and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, but not enough to give awards to Tony Hale or Matt Walsh or Anna Chlumsky or the show’s writers and directors, who landed five nominations but no wins. »
