‘Fun Mom Dinner’ VOD Review

8 August 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Molly Shannon, Bridget Everett, Katie Aselton, Toni Collette, Adam Levine, Paul Rust, Paul Rudd, David Wain | Written by Julie Rudd | Directed by Alethea Jones

Four moms, whose only common ground is their kids’ preschool class, arrange a fun mom dinner with the sole aim to drink wine, gossip, and bond without worrying about their kids, husbands and housework for the night. The dinner guests include the newly divorced Jamie (Molly Shannon), super mom Melanie (Bridget Everett), the stressed-out Emily (Katie Aselton), and Emily’s best friend and social outcast Kate (Toni Collette), who was more than a little reluctant in accepting the invite. The night begins as a disaster, but the combination of alcohol, karaoke, and a very cute bartender (Maroon 5′s Adam Levine), leads to an unforgettable night where these seemingly different women realise they have more in common than just motherhood, mess and men.

Fun Mom Dinner Trailer: These Mothers Are Even Worse

5 July 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Momentum Pictures has debuted the first trailer, poster and photos for Fun Mom Dinner, which premieres in select theaters, On Demand and on Digital HD August 4th. This movie arrives a few months before Stx Entertainment's sequel A Bad Moms Christmas, a follow-up to last year's R-rated comedy hit Bad Moms, with this new comedy showcasing another group of hard-partying mothers, who just need a break from their families every once and awhile. This comedy also marks the feature debuts for a new writer and director, one of whom has a unique comedic connection.

Fun Mom Dinner marks the feature film debut for both director Alethea Jones and writer Julie Rudd. You may recognize the writer's last name, since Julie Rudd is the wife of comedic superstar Paul Rudd, who has a "must-see cameo" in the comedy. He also serves as an executive producer alongside another co-star, Adam Scott, with »

Official Trailer for Another Wild Women Comedy 'Fun Mom Dinner'

5 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Moms - you're on!" Momentum Pictures has debuted an official trailer for the indie party comedy Fun Mom Dinner, which actually (surprisingly) first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and also played at the Sydney Film Festival. This film is the feature directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Alethea Jones, and is fun story of four wild moms who decide to get together for a harmless "fun mom dinner." The primary cast features Toni Collette, Katie Aselton, Molly Shannon, and Bridget Everett as the four moms. This also stars Adam Levine, Adam Scott, Paul Rust, Rob Huebel, David Wain, and Paul Rudd. There are quite a few of these "wild women" movies this year, between another Bad Moms, Rough Night, and Girls Trip. Not sure if this one looks any better or worse, but I do like the cast here. Have fun. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Alethea Jones' Fun Mom Dinner, »

5 July 2017 7:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Momsemble comedy goes indie with this Sundance farce from director Alethea Jones and writer Julie Rudd, which released a raucous first trailer today. It’s full of the kinds of shenanigans one might expect from a comedy about moms letting loose for an epic night: Flying poop, competitive bickering, clueless dads, and a trip to a weed dispensary. What could possibly go wrong?

Exclusive: Judd Apatow on 'The Big Sick' and Clean Movies Censorship: 'It's Pretty Sleazy'

21 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Mentorship is not a new hat for Judd Apatow -- after all, he's the guy who helped guide a then-unknown Lena Dunham and Girls to success. Lately though, he's only increased his efforts, with Pete Holmes on Crashing, Paul Rust on Love and now Kumail Nanjiani's first feature film, The Big Sick.

"I think it's among the best movies we've ever been a part of," Apatow says of The Big Sick, out June 23. "It's »

Emmy Actor Contenders Like Aziz Ansari, William H. Macy Find Drama in Humor

31 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While television dramas are meant to make you think, their comedy counterparts have long held dual roles: they have to make you think and they have to make you laugh. This poses an exciting challenge for an actor, who must find the choice funny moments in pages of scripted sadness. The past two years, Jeffrey Tambor has taken home the Emmy for lead actor in a comedy for his work on “Transparent,” which balances humor with deeply emotional scenes. Other actors, including Aziz Ansari on “Master of None” and Zack Galifianakis on “Baskets,” also tackle some serious issues.

“Funny and sad or comedy and drama; some mixture of those two is the bet way to tell stories,” says William H. Macy, who relishes these contradictions in his thrice-consecutive Emmy-nominated role as a drunken, drug-addled con artist (and decades-long loser of Father of the Year) Frank Gallagher on Showtime dramedy “Shameless.” “Every »

Emmy Contenders 2017: Lead Actor in a Comedy

31 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It remains to be seen if anyone can break Jeffrey Tambor’s two-year winning streak for “Transparent,” but there’s a formidable group that will make a strong effort. In fact, this category could be an exact repeat of last year’s lineup, with Anthony Anderson (“Black-ish”), Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Will Forte (“The Last Man On Earth”), William H. Macy (“Shameless”), and Thomas Middleditch (“Silicon Valley”) all eligible. But it’s likely at least one will be displaced by Donald Glover’s star turn on the FX comedy “Atlanta,” which won dual Golden Globe Awards for best comedy series and comedy actor this year. Glover has been busy at work on the high-profile Han Solo prequel, which certainly puts him front and center in voters’ minds. But never count out Jim Parsons, who could return for his work on “The Big Bang Theory,” which has already landed him four Emmys. And »

Judd Apatow TV: How ‘Girls,’ ‘Crashing’ and ‘Love’ Mix His Comedy DNA with Other People’s Stories

30 March 2017 7:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

What’s it like when Judd Apatow asks to put your soul on screen? It’s a question that gets a laugh from his series stars and creators.

“I’d already given mine away,” Gillian Jacobs said.

Paul Rust agreed: “Soon as you step in L.A., man.”

Like a lot of jokes in a typical Apatow project, it’s funny because while it might not be true, it still feels real.

Love: how Judd Apatow rewrote the rom-com rulebook

21 March 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 22, 2017

Judd Apatow, Lesley Arfin and Paul Rust have subverted expectations with Love, a thoughtful, funny and fearless Netflix series...

Love is one of Netflix’s finest original comedies. It’s certainly right up there with Master Of None and BoJack Horseman in the category of comedies that aren’t afraid to tackle tough topics.

See related  The Last Kingdom series 2 episode 1 review The Last Kingdom series 2: politics, battles and arselings What can we expect from new BBC drama, The Last Kingdom?

The show’s vague title means that Love may have flown under your radar, but it also comes with benefits. Due to the broad scope of its moniker, Love is a show without a gimmick, allowing the writing team to go down any path they wish to develop their characters, mine for laughs and tug on our heartstrings. It succeeds regularly on all three counts. »

Which TV Show Is the Most Challenging to Write About? — IndieWire Critics Survey

21 March 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which show do you find the most difficult to write about and why? (This was inspired by a tweet by Alan Sepinwall.)

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall), Uproxx

First, I apologize to the other critics for sticking them with this question, though it’ll be a relief to hear if they have similar blind spots.

But for me… man, is writing about “The Americans” like pulling teeth, in the laundry room, with only some vodka for anesthetic. It’s a great show, and consistently near the top of my best-of lists each season, yet it can take me half a day or more to make significant headway on »

‘May It Last’ Review: Avett Brothers Doc Shows That Music Doesn’t Need Turmoil to Be Compelling — SXSW 2017

18 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With most behind-the-scenes, making-of music docs, you can feel something ominous in the air. Either the artists on display are on the verge of a schism or someone’s personal life is threatening to undo the collective goals of the group. “May It Last,” a documentary from Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio about the North Carolina-based folk-rock group The Avett Brothers, never stumbles on that central, driving conflict. Instead, the film presents the story of two brothers, Scott and Seth Avett, who have lived their separate lives without being fueled by the need to bring seismic change to the music industry or each other. “May It Last” still places The Avett Brothers in the context of a musical quest but finds an equally satisfying path in the ordinary elements of their lives.

Most of the in-process footage from “May It Last” follows the recording of the band’s 2016 album “True »
