2 hours ago

Sean Spicer criticized Melissa McCarthy's Saturday Night Live "malicious" portrayal of him in an interview that occurred just hours after the White House press secretary resigned from the role.

"I'm a prankster, I like a good joke. I think when it's funny, it's funny. Sometimes it goes from funny to mean," Spicer told Sean Hannity Friday night.

"I think that there were parts of it that were funny, but there's a lot of it that was over the line. It wasn't funny. It was stupid, or silly, or malicious. »

'Girls Trip' Review: Comedy About Four Besties in Nola Hits All the Right Notes

21 July 2017 6:17 AM, PDT

Call me surprised with a cherry on top. Girls Trip is not what it looks like on the surface – a black-demo take on Rough Night, Scarlett Johansson's recent white–ish-girls-gone-wild romp in Miami which hit a wall of critical apathy and audience indifference. Not this time. In all the ways ScarJo & co.'s film went wrong (the dead male stripper – ugh!), Malcolm D. Lee's comedy goes hilariously right. Starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish as former college besties doing the reunion thing in New Orleans, »

See Will Smith, Mystical Creatures in New 'Bright' Trailer

20 July 2017 8:16 PM, PDT

"Everyone's just trying to get along and have a good life," Will Smith's cop character says in a new trailer for Netflix's forthcoming film, Bright. "All of the races are different. Just 'cause they're different doesn't mean anyone's better or worse than anybody."

In the present-day alternate universe where Bright takes place, humans, fairies, orcs, elves and other mystical creatures attempt to peacefully coexist and even work together, such as human character Smith and orc police officer (played by Joel Edgerton) begrudgingly and humorously do in the trailer.

Watch Conan's Goofy 'Wonder Woman' Spoof at Comic-Con

20 July 2017 7:04 AM, PDT

Conan set up shop at Comic-Con this week, and the show celebrated on Wednesday by airing an amusing spoof of the summer blockbuster Wonder Woman. The skit plays as one long joke about Conan's lack of macho male attributes.

The preamble is dispensed with quickly: following the path of Wonder Woman's male star Chris Pine, Conan gets lost flying an antiquated biplane, crash-lands in the ocean and swims ashore on "Themyscira, the hidden island of the Amazons." The Amazon warriors are instantly puzzled by their guest's puny physique and blindingly pale skin. »

Watch Samantha Bee Dismantle Trump's Suspect Voter Fraud Commission

20 July 2017 7:02 AM, PDT

Samantha Bee scrutinized the people in charge of President Donald Trump's dubious Voter Integrity Commission and their long track records of race-baiting and voter suppression on Full Frontal Wednesday. Trump launched the commission in an effort to root out the millions of people he falsely claims have been voting illegally.

Heading up the Voter Integrity Commission is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, whom Bee noted spent his college years writing an anti-divestment thesis under the tutelage of a professor who also advised the white South African apartheid regime. »

Watch Stephen Colbert Ask Nets Owner How to Be a Russian Billionaire

20 July 2017 6:12 AM, PDT

For day three of "Russia Week" on The Late Show, Stephen Colbert visited Mikhail Prokhorov – the Russian billionaire who owns the Brooklyn Nets – to gain a better understanding of power in a country ruled largely by a small cadre of the uber-rich.

"This is how things work over in Russia: over there, the political system is controlled by wealthy elites who buy influence and pull strings of the government," Colbert explained. "Whereas in America," he deadpanned, "we speak English."

The rest of the segment lacked that political bite. During his time with Prokhorov, »

'Landline' Review: Indie 1990s Dramedy About Dysfunctional Family Falls Short

20 July 2017 6:05 AM, PDT

Talk about a hard act to follow: Landline brings together the same sublime actress (Jenny Slate) and filmmaker (Gillian Robespierre) who put a sting in the tail of every joke in Obvious Child, their 2014 romcom about abortion. Ok, their movie about a stand-up comedian negotiating the pitfalls of 21st-century romance dug deeper than that pithy description – and the duo's follow-up also offers far more than meets the eye. But there's something missing that’s hard to pin down.

Set long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away – that would »

'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' Review: Luc Besson Makes a Sci-Fi Mess

19 July 2017 8:55 AM, PDT

Confession: There are times when I've been loyally in Luc Besson's corner – the visual splendor of Subway (1985), The Big Blue (1988) and La Femme Nikita (1990) established him as a master of what the French call Cinéma du Look. And 1994's The Professional – with Jean Reno teaching the assassin's game to a very young Natalie Portman – went deeper, blending style with a nurturing sense of humanity. Plus, there's a lot to be said in favor of both his sci-fi extravaganza The Fifth Element (1997) and last year's next-level ScarJo-evolution whatsit Lucy. »

Merman Love Highlights Guillermo del Toro's 'The Shape of Water' Trailer

19 July 2017 8:41 AM, PDT

Director Guillermo del Toro has unveiled the trailer for his upcoming film The Shape of Water, an imaginative and offbeat love story between a mute woman and a sea creature.

Sally Hawkins plays the morose woman hired to clean up a Cold War-era government laboratory, where she encounters the merman-like monster. Michael Shannon plays a mad scientist who torments the creature through hellish experiments, and as the trailer shows, Hawkins' Elisa attempts to free the intelligent monster from its captors before it's dissected.
