13 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. – both of “New Girl” fame – fake their way onto the police force to get the girl (“The Vampire Diaries”’ Nina Dobrev) and the bad guys in this weekend’s Let’s Be Cops. Dressing up as officers of the law for a costume party has some pretty unexpected consequences for Ryan (Johnson) and Justin (Wayans), but we’ve got a special glimpse into what’s in store for the duo!

Check out the below clips from the buddy cop comedy below, and don’t forget: This is all kinds of illegal.

Let’s Be Cops also stars Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street), James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas), “MADtv”’s Keegan-Michael Key, and Andy Garcia (Ocean’s 11, The Godfather: Part III). It hits theatres this Friday, August 15. »

Comic-Con: Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele and Director/Producer Peter Atencio Talk Key And Peele Season 4, Animated Spinoffs, Fargo, and More

26 July 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele may well be the best damn comedy team working today.  After honing their skills on MadTV for five seasons, the duo struck out on their own to create Key and Peele.  Within months of premiering, the series produced a viral hit so popular that President Barrack Obama felt the need to comment on it publicly. Three seasons, (with Key and Peele Season 4 coming this fall), two Emmy nominations, and one Peabody Award later, these funnymen are just getting started. Now they’re branching out into dramedy with turns on Fargo, features with Judd Apatow and even animated spin-offs of their meta-textual YouTube characters Vandaveon and Mike.  Yesterday afternoon, Collider sat down with the comedians and their Director/Producer Peter Atencio at Comic-Con to discuss all of the above.  And Cyrano de Bergerac by way of Cholo culture.  Read on for the full interview and some video snippets. »

15 Years Later: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Drop Dead Gorgeous

23 July 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

The year was 1999 and by the summer, teen films were all the rage. The year kicked off with two unexpected box office successes, Varsity Blues and She’s All That, before studios started pumping out hit after hit. In the same year, Drop Dead Gorgeous, a dark comedy about teenage girls competing in a local Minnesota beauty pageant, bombed at the box office. Unable to capture the same excitement as American Pie or 10 Things I Hate About You, the film quickly disappeared from theaters after earning a dismal $10.5 million at the box office.

It was only later, when released on DVD and VHS, did the movie become a cult classic. Similarly to Jawbreaker, which also came out in 1999, Drop Dead Gorgeous proved to be a pivotal film — introducing audiences to Amy Adams, making use of the mockumentary style — even if it was overlooked at the time.

On the 15th anniversary of the theatrical release, »

With Obama Sketches and 'Les Miserables' Parodies, Key and Peele Do Comedy Like No One Else

13 June 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Comedian Patton Oswalt, during a recent Paley Center for Media conversation with Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, was less moderator and more unabashed fanboy for their Comedy Central series, which will return for its fourth season this fall. But Oswalt's approach highlighted one of the factors that makes the Comedy Central sketch series "Key and Peele" -- and Key and Peele themselves -- such a fresh voice in the comedy atmosphere: The fact that no one is doing comedy like them.  While the duo's background includes stints on "Mad TV," Key and Peele said that they work hard to draw on their unique experiences for the show. "The way we look at creating a 'Key and Peele' sketch is, what is something that only Keegan and I could do -- or that only Keegan and I would do?"

To mark the release of Family Guy Season 13 on 9th June, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Reaching new heights of outrageous comedy Season 13 of Family Guy delivers 22 jaw-droppingly funny episodes, including fan-favourite Into Fat Air, where the Griffins climb that small hill, Mount Everest.

Emmy Award® winning creator Seth MacFarlane (Ted, A Million Ways to Die in The West) continues to flaunt the creatively absurd as Lois battles mid-life crisis and Meg face’s a love triangle with a boy and her own brother Chris.

'Riot': Steve Carell and cast on the new improv game show that's taking comedy to the extreme

13 May 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

I think it’s safe to say that Steve Carell is a master of physical comedy. This is the man who famously once waxed his chest hair on the big screen. So it makes sense that The Office star is an executive producer and one of the first celebrity guests on Riot, a new extreme game show premiering tonight on Fox.

“I have no idea what I’m getting myself into,” Carell jokingly told EW before filming alongside his Office co-star Andy Buckley. The show is based on the international hit franchise Slide Show and puts two teams of celebrities »

Film Review: ‘Moms’ Night Out’

2 May 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s nothing wrong with “Moms’ Night Out” that couldn’t be fixed by a massive rewrite, preferably one that involves a lobotomy for the main character. Capturing the chaos that ensues when three overworked mothers decide to take a breather, this dismally unfunny comedy features barely a single instance of what most adults would recognize as human behavior — a curious failure for a movie aiming to resonate with all the frazzled mothers and fathers in the audience. Basically a shrill feature-length sitcom for the faith-based family-values crowd, if nowhere near as good as that sounds, Sony/TriStar’s Mother’s Day-timed release could get some mileage out of its high-profile Christian backers (namely co-star Patricia Heaton) but won’t exactly follow in the blessed B.O. footsteps of “Heaven Is for Real” and “God’s Not Dead.”

Key And Peele: Seasons One & Two Blu-ray Review

18 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Comedy is the most subjective of mediums, and one man's hilarious genius is another man's desperate hack. Widely successful comics often water down their material in order to appeal to the broadest possible demographic, while niche comics tailor their message to much that they can't break out of their established audience. Key and Peele seem to have avoided that fate by finding the right mixture of intelligence, critical thinking and personal passion with their Comedy Central series. The jokes feel like they come from your clever best friend: accessible without being so bland that they fall flat. Their new Blu-ray set – covering the first two seasons – puts some of their best routines on display, which are more than enough to excuse the occasional failure. Hit the jump for my full Key & Peele Blu-ray review of seasons one and two. Their partnership plays a huge role in their success. Keegan-Michael Key »
