Fate intervenes when she meets Charlie (Schwarzenegger)… »
Hotel Transylvania 2, 2015.
Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.
Starring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, David Spade, Keegan Michael Key, Fran Drescher, Molly Shannon, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, Dana Carvey, Rob Riggle, Chris Kattan, Sadie Sandler, Sunny Sandler, Jon Lovitz, and Mel Brooks.
Dracula and his friends try to bring out the monster in his half human, half vampire grandson in order to keep Mavis from leaving the hotel.
Full disclosure, I have not seen the first Hotel Transylvania, but decided to give the sequel, simply titled Hotel Transylvania 2 a shot, partly because I take some pleasure in coming online and professionally trashing Adam Sandler’s recent lazy output. I can’t really do that this time though, because I kind of enjoyed what I saw, despite the fact that it’s clear Adam Sandler has brought his friends along again for another easy paycheck. »

Made Man’s yearly, man-powered charity drive is back. The Defy Media-owned entertainment destination, which focuses on content aimed at men, has announced its second annual Gentleman Up campaign to support Career Gear.
Gentleman Up debuted last November, when Rob Riggle implored all men to dress up nice on a Friday to support charity. This year, the campaign has been moved up a month, but the spokesperson and the message are the same. On October 9th, Riggle will say no to casual Friday and instead don formalwear. For everyone who joins him--and posts a picture of their attire on social media with the hashtag #FormalFriday--Made Man will make a $1 donation to Career Gear, which provides clothing and job counseling for men in need.
#FormalFriday is just one part of an entire slate of Gentleman Up programming. Five series will arrive on the Made Man channel, and they all home »

'Hotel Transylvania 2.' 'Hotel Transylvania 2' far surpasses expectations at domestic box office: Adam Sandler a hit when heard but not seen Adam Sandler has been having his share of domestic box office flops lately. Chris Columbus' Pixels, which opened in late July to scathing reviews and indifferent audiences, was the latest one: a reported $88 million production (plus marketing and distribution expenses) that earned $76.67 million in the U.S. and Canada (plus an estimated $145.1 million elsewhere). But now comes the Sony Pictures release Hotel Transylvania 2, the concisely titled sequel to the late Sept. 2012 hit Hotel Transylvania. Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the $80-85 million-budgeted animated feature should open around $48 million from 3,754 theaters according to early weekend box office estimates found at Deadline.com. The report adds that some “rival studio box office analysts” believe Hotel Transylvania 2 may actually pass the $50 million mark. On Friday, Sept. 25, '15, it collected a better than expected (estimated) $13.5 million. »

The Show | Playing House
The Episode | “Knotty Pine” (Aug. 18)
The Performance | When you think of USA Network’s Jessica St. Clair-Lennon Parham comedy, a few choice phrases might instantly come to mind — “totes kewl” and “body be bangin'” among them. “Heartbreaking dramatic performances,” however, might not be included on the list. That is, until we saw Keegan-Michael Key’s work in Tuesday’s episode.
New posters and a Nsfw trailer are here for Hell And Back.
In the outrageous R rated animated comedy from the Animation studio that brought you “Robot Chicken,” “Triptank” and “Bojack Horseman,” three friends embark on a wayward journey into the deepest, darkest depths of hell to rescue one of their own.
While navigating their escape, they provoke a slew of misfit demons, a super sexy angel, infamous Greek legends, and the Devil himself; Hell has never been hotter!
In the film, T.J. Miller plays a not-so-svelte guy named Augie who gets pulled into Hades along with his best friend Remy (stand-up comedian Nick Swardson). The thing is, this Hell is pretty hilarious, raunchy, and boasts an all-star cast that includes Mila Kunis as a devious demon who leads the two mortals on an odyssey through Satan’s inferno. Bob Odenkirk voices the devil, and Susan Sarandon plays his angel of desire. »

T.J. Miller, Nick Swardson and Rob Riggle lend their voices to three friends who literally find themselves in hell in the first red band trailer for Hell & Back. We got our first look at Hell & Back with new photos that debuted back in May, but this age-restricted trailer shows off the film's adult-themed humor. This stop-motion animated comedy hails from the same company that produces Adult Swim's Robot Chicken. Yahoo! Movies also spoke with T.J. Miller about how voice over work takes away his biggest comedic asset.
"I lose the most valuable asset to my comedic skill set, which is how weird looking I am. You only have your voice. You can't make a stupid face. In Silicon Valley a lot of my laughs come from Erlich just giving a sort of look. It really is a lot what he looks like, even my facial hair."

Playing House, Season 2, Episode 4, “Knotty Pine”
Written by Vera Santamaria
Directed by Stuart McDonald
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm (Est) on USA Network
“Knotty Pine,” the fourth episode of Playing House, marks the mid-point for the season and is the show’s finest installment, deftly moving between comedy and drama to deliver the best of both genres. The episode showcases the blossoming friendship between Tina, Maggie, and Emma, as they go on shopping dates and attend all-female woodworking classes. While the women’s friendship grows closer, Mark and Tina continue to drift apart. “Knotty Pine” culminates with an emotional conversation between Tina and Mark about the future of their relationship, a powerfully broken moment for a comedy, but one that feels completely at home in the world of Playing House.
While Playing House is a comedy, it is unlike other shows that pack a dense number of rapid-fire jokes into every scene. »

Absolutely Anything has been on comedy fans' radars for a long time. Terry Jones' first directorial effort since 1996's The Wind In The Willows is touted as a zany sci-fi comedy with shades of Douglas Adams and Monty Python's Flying Circus, with a cast that includes Jones' fellow Pythons, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin, alongside other comedy stars like Simon Pegg, Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley and Robin Williams.
Alas, the material doesn't live up to the star calibre, nor the literally limitless potential suggested by the title. Loosely based on H.G. Wells' fantastical comedy short story The Man Who Could Work Miracles, the film begins when a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by the Pythons) discover a probe with information on Earth's culture and decide »
Director: Terry Jones; Screenwriters: Gavin Scott, Terry Jones; Starring: Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Robin Williams, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, Michael Palin; Running time: 86 mins; Certificate: 12A
Legendary studio mogul Jack Warner once described the film Bonnie and Clyde as "a three piss picture", so disengaged was he with what was happening on screen he'd duck out multiple times for a bathroom break. Simon Pegg's latest comedy boasts a bladder-friendly 86-minute running time, but this is very much a "check-your-watch-three-times" kind of affair. You'll want to be absolutely anywhere else but sat in a darkened theatre witnessing this comedic travesty.
On paper, it all sounds much more appealing. Pegg takes the lead as school teacher Neil Clarke, a fortysomething ordinary Joe who's hand-picked by a group of aliens (voiced by the surviving Monty Python cast) to test out Earth's value in the cosmos. Granted infinite power, »
Absolutely Anything, 2015.
Directed by Terry Jones.
A group of eccentric aliens give a man the power to do absolutely anything in order to determine if the Earth is worth saving.
The premise of Absolutely Anything will be familiar to fans of South Park. In one particularly brilliant episode of Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s irreverently astute show, “Pinewood Derby”, a self-professed intergalactic bank robbing alien called Baby Fark McGee-zax (which is of no relevance but is too good to ignore) lands on Earth to take everyone hostage while forcing Stan and Randy to recreate the warp speed that drew him there in the first place, so that he can make good his escape with his massive haul of space cash. It turns out that *spoiler alert* it’s all an »

Released: August 14th (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Absolutely Anything follows a disillusioned school teacher (Simon Pegg) who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin & Eric Idle), watching him from space. As he struggles to deal with these new found powers and the events. »
