Movies We Miss: Men at Work (1990)

I’ve mentioned before that I hit a wave of nostalgia at least once a day. Well, that happened yesterday while flipping through the channels and a 90s comedy classic came on. I hope you guys remember the movie Men at Work from 1990. The film was directed and written by none other than Emilio Estevez. Who did it star? Brothers Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen. It was probably the only movie that made being a garbage man in La look cool and make being an Lapd officer look completely lame. If you’ll recall the movie centers on two garbage men

New Flash Character Is Not Human

A new character will debut in Flash episode 13 and will stick around at least until episode 14, that being the good intentioned leader of Gorilla City (The home of the sentient Apes in the comics, and apparently the CW show Flash), another ape, Solovar. If your left hand is evil, you hold Grodd, and if your right hand has good intentions then you cradle Solovar. This ape has been around the comics for a long time, and while he has had evil tendencies at times, Solovar is typically the logically thinking leader controlling Gorilla City.

Today, we learn that Solovar will join us, and I for one being an Apetivist am happy to learn that not all Gorillas will be evil in the show. Or so we are led to believe. For all we know, Solovar could be highly irritated that Barry threw Grodd into their world, disrupting their ape-lives and Solovar now seeks revenge.

7 Movies That Should've Starred Charlie Sheen

Love him or hate him, you have to admit one thing about Charlie Sheen: The guy is pretty damn entertaining.

The man who stole the 2011 media spotlight from every other celebrity with his bizarre behavior and madcap yammerings is currently making a comeback on the big screen, continuing this weekend with his turn in "Scary Movie 5." If the trailers and clips are any indication, Charlie doesn't do much in the movie beyond hang out in bed with Lindsay Lohan — which is, of course, just fine.

It's not enough, though. We want even more Charlie Sheen movies. So while we continue to wait patiently for real Charlie Sheen movies like "Machete Kills" (he plays the President of the United States in that one) and make-believe Charlie Sheen movies like "Hot Shots! Part Trois" (or even the fraternal reunion "Men at Work 2: Still Working"), here are seven movies that could've used some Sheen.

9 Secretly Beautiful Hollywood Screenwriters

If you're stoked on "Stoker," you can thank "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller, who is making his screenwriting debut with the gothic Park Chan-wook affair. Miller wrote the script under a pseudonym, and the results ended up on the 2010 Black List of hot screenplays that weren't yet snagged by studios.

Wentworth, we hardly knew ye!

Miller isn't the only surprising star doing double-duty as a writer, either. He joins an impressive list of famous, Hollywood faces that wield a mean pen or, more likely, the latest version of Final Draft.

Rashida Jones

Her "Parks and Rec" alter ego Ann Perkins is "a beautiful tropical fish" and "a beautiful, rule-breaking moth," and even "a beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox," on occasion, according to her Bff Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler). Off-screen, Rashida Jones is proving to be a rather formidable creative force as well. She and writing partner Will McCormack penned

Exclusive: Thn Talk To ‘Brooklyn Brothers’ Ryan O’Nan & Michael Weston

Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best is currently touring the Us in two fashions, one as they promote their indie movie, that we recently reviewed, and secondly as the band that’s become a reality after following it fictionally through the film. It’s the debut feature for Ryan O’Nan on directorial and writing duty and competently accompanied by Michael Weston, the more experienced of the pair in the acting arena, and both of them equally a little crazy.

We caught up with them recently, to delve a little more into the film and confirm their equal, yet brilliant, madness.

Tell us a little more about Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best and how it came to be?

Ryan: It’s about two misfit musicians and they’re at a point where they’re about to give up and, instead and somehow, put together a make-shift tour and try to come out the other end.

Summer Recap: From Olympics To ‘Newsroom,’ The Season’s Highs and Lows

By Rachel Bennett

Television Editor & Columnist

***

A week ago, Breaking Bad finished the first half of its fifth and final season. In other words, summer TV has ended.

Although some shows, such as FX’s Louie and AMC’s Hell on Wheels, still have more episodes to go before their seasons conclude, NBC will be unveiling some of its new fall series this week — and the other networks won’t be too far behind.

To be honest, summer TV isn’t my favorite. I use the season to catch up on TV I’ve missed more than I do to watch such new offerings as TBS’s Men at Work and E!’s Married to Jonas.

However, this doesn’t mean all of summer TV is a bust.

Here are the choices for the brightest and darkest spots of summer TV 2012:

FX automatically gives Charlie Sheen's Anger Management 90 more episodes

With the sound of klaxons blaring and meme airlocks being sealed, Charlie Sheen's Anger Management has triggered its automatic 90-episode pickup, FX relayed in a statement filled with similarly automatically generated platitudes. According to the network, the show has met both its "designated average ratings threshold" and acceptable minimum definition of "comedy," becoming the highest-rated new sitcom on cable in 2012 (to the coincidental chagrin of Men At Work, we guess). The network expressed dutiful excitement about maintaining that plateau and extending its bargain with the self-aware devil for at least the next two years it will take to ...

There are some sets of famous siblings that everyone just knows: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, and Chris and Liam Hemsworth, to name a few.

6 places ‘Community’ Creator Dan Harmon & Like-Minded Showrunners Can Shop a Comedy

It appears NBC’s former problem child, Dan Harmon may have found a new home. TV Guide reported earlier today that the former Community showrunner is close to a deal to bring an untitled multi-camera comedy pilot to Fox, his first major move since being booted from the NBC clever-but-cult-favorite comedy he created. Harmon is also hard at work in developing an animated series called Rick & Morty for Adult Swim.

Since becoming a darling with fans and some of the media, New Girl has expanded Fox’s idea of what makes for a good comedy. For one, it’s Not animated. Animated series are not a bad thing, but outside of Raising Hope, and before New Girl was a hit, the only comedies Fox seemed willing to develop were spinoffs of Family Guy.

Cable Ratings: Anger Management Rebounds, Project Runway Stumbles, Awkward Rises
Anger Management reversed two weeks of downward trending with a visit from Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards — and with nary a champagne bottle in sight.

FX’s freshman comedy this Thursday drew 2.65 million total viewers, with 1.42 mil landing in the coveted 18-49 demo, marking week-to-week gains of 9 and 13 percent, respectively.

The series was also up in the Men 18-34 (+26%) and Women 18-34 (+45%) demos.

Wait, it just hit me: Richards was in Wild Things, and Sheen played “Wild Thing” in Major League. I just let out a Keanu Reeves-like whoa.

Trailer Time: The Way, starring Martin Sheen and directed by Emilio Estevez

People forget, but former Brat Packer Emilio Estevez has been directing films since 1986's Wisdom. He went from that to the underrated garbage men flick, Men at Work, in 1990. I count that as one of the personal favorites of my teen years because it was so damn stupid. Bowling with trash can lids? Who does that? Estevez made his first truly credible film in 2006 with the multi-character JFK film
