Watch Bill Murray Lead 'West Side Story' Medley on 'Colbert'

13 October 2017 9:44 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Bill Murray fronted a hilarious, empowering West Side Story medley on Thursday's Late Show alongside his recent musical collaborator, German cellist Jan Vogler. The performance, which capped off a zany late-night takeover, included spoken word/classical renditions of Sondheim-Bernstein classics "Somewhere," "I Feel Pretty" and "America."

Murray opened the mini-set in lounge crooner mode, theatrically smirking and wandering around the stage to a soundtrack of sawing strings and stomping piano. The actor drastic utilized tonal shifts for comedic effect, moving from the drama of "Somewhere" to the silliness of "I »

10 Things You Didn’t Know about “Back to School”

12 October 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

This had to be one of Rodney Dangerfield’s best movies, if not The best. I dunno, Caddyshack was pretty good but then again he wasn’t the star. This film allowed him to just go nuts and do what he did in a big way. His supporting cast was great and the costars he was paired with did a wonderful job of letting him shine and adding in their own two cents as well when it was time. It had kind of a slow start to it but it got rolling quickly after a couple of minutes and it didn’t stop

The 100 Greatest Comedies of All-Time, According to BBC’s Critics Poll

22 August 2017 5:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After polling critics from around the world for the greatest American films of all-time, BBC has now forged ahead in the attempt to get a consensus on the best comedies of all-time. After polling 253 film critics, including 118 women and 135 men, from 52 countries and six continents a simple, the list of the 100 greatest is now here.

Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.

Check out the list below (and my ballot) and see more on their official site.

'Caddyshack': THR's 1980 Review

25 July 2017 8:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On July 25, 1980, Warner Bros. unveiled the Harold Ramis-directed, R-rated comedy Caddyshack in theaters. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below: 

To attempt a critical evaluation of Orion's new Caddyshack is a little like describing the esthetic qualities of an outhouse. Its jokes are almost entirely scatological, deriving from such socially questionable practices as farting, vomiting and nose-picking. In one protracted sequence, a chocolate candy bar afloat in a swimming pool is mistaken for a turd, causing the pool to empty in a Jaws parody; it closes with Bill Murray finding the bar and biting into it, causing a »

Newswire: Bill Murray invites fans to join him on the golf course

8 February 2017 6:59 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Bill Murray—who loves golf almost as much as he loves the Chicago Cubs, cracking wise, and appearing in urban legends that no one will ever believe, despite the fact that everybody secretly believes them—is offering up a chance for a couple of fans to hit the links with him. Murray is selling off a round of golf and lunch with himself to the lucky—i.e., rich—winner of this Charitybuzz auction, in order to provide funds for the Murray Bros. Foundation. The group, which was founded by Murray and his brothers, and which also runs the annual Murray Bros. Caddyshack Charity Golf Tournament, raises cash for “medical services, educational programs, lifesaving equipment, and fundraising opportunities to better the lives in communities across the country.”

Bidding for the charity package, which allows two people to golf with Murray on South Carolina’s Daniel Island Club, share a meal »

‘When the Street Lights Go On’ Review: Eerie ’80s Murder-Mystery Blends ‘Stranger Things’ with ‘The Night Of’ — Sundance 2017

20 January 2017 3:01 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nostalgia may be based in the past, but it’s the future of entertainment. That’s how the media landscape has felt of late, with decades-old film franchises like “Star Wars” coming back to a very prosperous life, revivals like “Gilmore Girls” and “Will & Grace” dominating television, and everything from superhero movies to “Stranger Things” mining our childhoods for fresh material.

So as “When the Street Lights Go On” began and a familiar ’80s melody played over a montage of well-known events from 1983, wariness was the first feeling to set in: Here comes another attempt at manipulating our shared memories into “new” entertainment built on old ideas. But the deliberate and distinctive pacing combined with a uniquely mysterious presentation elevates the Paramount pilot above more overt nostalgia traps. And, more shocking still, its clever blend of on-the-nose songs from 1983 and lesser known numbers of the same year quickly and decisively help ground the pilot. »

Great Job, Internet!: Read This: Notorious asshole Jon Peters thinks he’s the Trump of Hollywood

13 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, rich asshole Jon Peters went into great detail about his wealth and relished in his reputation as shamelessly money-hungry. When asked about parallels drawn between him and Donald Trump, he proudly told Hollywood Reporter, “I am the Trump of Hollywood.”

His life has boggled those in Hollywood for years. From his humble beginnings as Barbra Streisand’s hairdresser to launching the Batman and Superman movie franchises, Peters is a true rags-to-riches story, albeit without an ounce of humility. He’s so influential that he was credited as being the inspiration behind the films Shampoo and American Gigolo, and he’s had a hand in everything from Caddyshack to Flashdance. The Hollywood Reporter profile on him is not only full of great quotes from Peters about his love for smoking pot, but it also includes descriptions like this that perfectly set the scene »

Man of Steel Producer Was Paid $80M to Do Nothing

13 January 2017 1:18 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many DC fans won't know who Jon Peters is by name, but they will probably know his work, since he produced movies like Caddyshack, Batman and technically Man of Steel. Though, he didn't actually work on that latter movie. He started out, oddly enough, as a hairdresser and eventually wound up as a bit time Hollywood producer. So how successful is he? Well, he was good enough, or at least smart enough, to make about $80 million for doing absolutely nothing on both Superman Returns and Man of Steel.

After spending quite a long time away from the limelight, Jon Peters recently granted an interview to The Hollywood Reporter. Just to give an idea of the kind of reputation Jon Peters has, the THR report noted that he had a loaded gun on the table during the interview. The publication reported a while back that he was paid somewhere between $10 and $15 million for Man of Steel, »
