Jim Carrey Returns to ‘SNL’

17 December 2010 9:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

-

On January 8th, Jim Carrey will host Saturday Night Live with musical guests The Black Keys. This marks the return to his sketch comedy roots which made him famous when he got his break on the series In Living Color. Carrey had actually auditioned to be a cast member for the 1980–1981 season of NBC’s Saturday Night Live but was not selected for the position. It wasn’t until May 1996 that he finally made his mark appearing in some memorable sketches alongside Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan (as the head-bobbing duo from A Night at the Roxbury) and as old man Jimmy Stewart on the Joe Pesci Show.

Jim Carrey to Host Saturday Night Live in January

17 December 2010 11:57 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back when Jim Carrey was raucously hilarious throughout the 90's, it was my pleasure as a younger lad to enjoy his comedic stylings not just in films like Liar, Liar and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective but also as host of Saturday Night Live. Carrey took to the sketch comedy show like wildfire by appearing in great sketches with the Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan as the head-bobbing duo from A Night at the Roxbury and as an old frail Jimmy Stewart on the Joe Pesci Show. Now it looks like he's returning to his sketch comedy roots (since Carrey got a big break on the series In Living Color) for his second sting hosting SNL. On January 8th, Carrey will take to the stage with musical guest The Black Keys for a run on late night TV that will hopefully be funnier than his recent work in films like Yes Man. »

The Very Adult World of Todd Phillips

21 September 2010 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ed Helms and Todd Phillips on the set of The HangoverThe other day I was reading an article in Salon magazine. The article was titled "Why we need more 'adult' movies?" and it addressed the need for more films with themes that "kids won't understand" according to the author. Then he went on to sing the praises of two recent movies, The American with George Clooney and The Romantics with Katie Holmes. I have to say I agreed with the premise, we could use more films with adult themes, but I couldn't agree with what he was saying.

First of all, the author seemed to equate slow pacing with "adult", going so far as to cite a scene in The Romantics where the camera lingers on Anna Paquin for almost a minute. Slow does not mean adult. (Many of the comments left for the author echoed my sentiments as well »

Adam Sandler's 'Jack and Jill' Grabs Al Pacino, Katie Holmes

25 August 2010 7:45 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Jack and Jill first popped up in the news in 2006, when it was but a spec script bought by Columbia that would be produced by Adam Sandler's production company, Happy Madison. After a few years of radio silence, Jack and Jill popped up on our radar again with news that Sandler would play twins -- yes, Jack and Jill -- in a romantic comedy written by Steve Koren (Saturday Night Live, A Night at the Roxbury, Superstar, and Click, among others). Director Dennis Dugan is a frequent Sandler collaborator whom we can hold at least partially responsible for Grown Ups, You Don't Mess With the Zohan, and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.

More details have emerged, and thankfully we won't be subjected to any Sandler-on-Sandler twin-cest in Jack and Jill; the premise is that Jack's wacky twin Jill comes for Thanksgiving and just won't leave. Hijinks ensue, »

Will Ferrell set to defuse last boxoffice bomb

4 August 2010 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York -- Is it a coincidence that the name of Will Ferrell's character in "The Other Guys" is Gamble?

With his newest big-budget comedy hitting theaters today, the A-list funnyman is betting he can deliver not just another hit, but one gigantic enough to erase memories of his most recent movie, the financial tar pit that was "Land of the Lost."

In the decade since he loosened himself from the "Saturday Night Live" tether, Ferrell has delivered half a dozen unqualified mainstream film hits. But last summer, he finally was forced to endure the sudden indignity of an unqualified disaster. "Lost," which Universal released during a prime early-summer June weekend, couldn't break the measly $50 million domestic barrier while carrying a production budget more than twice that.

Adding insult to injury, "The Hangover" crashed theaters that same weekend -- with relatively unknown stars at a quarter of the cost »

San Diego Comic-Con, Scott Pilgrim And Mel Gibson In Today's Twitter-Wood

22 July 2010 3:05 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

If you don't know about the cosplay and people watching available in San Diego this week thanks to Comic-Con International, you're in luck because pictures and insights have been rolling in from across the Twitter-Wood feed today. Sean Patrick Flanery posed for a shot with some Halo Spartans, Patton Oswalt spotted Superman, and Anna Kendrick's just happy to be among friends.

Kal Penn, meanwhile, finally got to check out "Human Centipede." You can find out he had to say below along with shot of Tyrese Gibson hanging out with Mel Gibson, another actor's tweet from the "Guns, Girls and Gambling" location and much more.

'Eclipse' Criticism, The 'Toy Story 3' Cast And Wimbledon In Today's Twitter-Wood

24 June 2010 2:14 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Snooki and the "Eclipse" cast may be jazzed about the new "Twilight" sequel's release this week, but Chris Kattan is not impressed, assuming his Twitter post today was meant to be sarcastic. If it wasn't meant as sarcasm, he may have just declared himself to be one of the biggest lovers of sparkling vampires in all of Twitter-Wood.

Few celebs have dared to trash "Toy Story 3," meanwhile. Christopher Mintz-Plasse wrote down some thoughts after seeing it, and director Lee Unkrich shared a photo with a few of the film's voice actors. Meanwhile, almost everyone else in our feed has been watching Wimbeldon or the World Cup. You can check out some match reactions and the jump along with another use Linsday Lohan has discovered for her iPad and Rainn Wilson's suggestions for the war in Afghanistan

All of this and more appears in Twitter-Wood for June 24, 2010.

The Stanley Cup, The Cmt Music Awards And IMAX 'Eclipse' In Today's Twitter-Wood

10 June 2010 2:00 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The fun part about watching Kevin Smith's hockey tweets is that that he's actually a fan of the sport in general, as opposed to just the New Jersey Devils. Jeremy Piven and Dave Coulier, meanwhile were a little more explicit with their praise last night when the Chicago Blackhawks took home the Stanley Cup.

Some country music performers took home some accolades last night, too, over at the Cmt Music Awards. David Spade and Snooki saw some friends while they were there from the looks of their tweets. Check out who they were hanging out with after the jump along with a shot of Julia Roberts and a glimpse of what "Eclipse" looks like in IMAX.

'MacGruber' Fails to Defuse Bomb

27 May 2010 1:02 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

To a startling degree, audiences either rejected or were indifferent to MacGruber, the latest Saturday Night Live adaptation. Despite a boatload of promotion (particularly on SNL home NBC), MacGruber mustered just $4 million on its opening weekend at 2,551 theaters. MacGruber's start ranks as the worst-to-date for 2010 among 1,000-theater-plus launches. It's also the ninth worst start ever for a picture playing at more than 2,500 sites. The news is even worse in terms of estimated attendance. On that front, MacGruber had the third poorest 2,500-plus site debut, behind only The Rocker and Lucky You. The key reason for MacGruber's failure may have been an inability to transcend the rote one-joke nature of its source material. Like most recurring SNL sketches, the show's MacGruber interstitials repeat the same gag of the MacGyver-like main character being distracted from defusing a bomb that's about to explode over and over again.

Is 'MacGruber' the last 'Saturday Night Live' movie?

25 May 2010 10:38 AM, PDT | EW.com - The Movie Critics | See recent EW.com - The Movie Critics news »

You knew that the blood was on the floor the moment the critics, like Lisa, took out the long knives and began to slash away. Yet even given the worst. dumb. movie. ever. spitballs that were hurled at it, the box office returns for MacGruber had to be scary, and a bit of a shock, even for those who avidly follow the genre it belongs to: the bad Saturday Night Live movie. Now, I’m tempted to say that “bad Saturday Night Live movie” is a perfectly redundant phrase. I mean, just let your mind drift back over all the Lorne Michaels-mentored, »

Weekend Box Office: 'Shrek' Wins the Weekend, 'MacGruber' Flops

24 May 2010 7:48 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

The Shrek franchise -- which has by now grossed over a billion dollars domestically -- made another splash at the box office this weekend, though not as emphatically as the last two outings. I doubt anyone will complain about Shrek Forever After's $71 million opening, but it is some $50 million less than Shrek the Third's and around $40 million less than overall series champ Shrek 2's. The fourth film will almost certainly be the lowest-grossing in the franchise, which I think may be suffering from good, old-fashioned audience fatigue. (That Shrek the Third played a bit like a sitcom, albeit a funny one, probably didn't help.) The movie does look like it will end How to Train Your Dragon's tremendous run, as the new competition finally made that film drop like a stone in its ninth week of release.

Iron Man 2 fell to second place with $26 million »

[Movie Review] MacGruber

22 May 2010 2:17 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Just like with The Simpsons, there’s a line dividing audiences when it comes to Saturday Night Live. Is it still funny? Are its glory days behind it? Or has the show finally come into its own? Still others think it’s never been funny. Whatever your opinion, the movies that have stemmed from SNL are just as mixed. The Coneheads, Wayne’s World, its sequel, A Night at the Roxbury, Superstar, Ladies Man, It’s Pat, The Blues Brothers (and its god awful sequel), and now MacGruber are part of a dubious history of filmmaking. While often critically panned (since The Blues Brothers and Wayne’s World, no SNL film has reached above a 60% at RottenTomatoes), their box office performances are even worse. It certainly lends some credibility to the idea that SNL’s best days are far behind it. So what of MacGruber? Does it fit within the »

'MacGruber' Gets Us Thinking About Other 'SNL' Sketches That Should Be Movies

21 May 2010 12:01 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

If the existence of the "MacGruber" movie teaches me anything, it's you can turn absolutely any "Saturday Night Live" sketch—no matter how short and how much they always end with the title character (presumably) dying in a huge explosion—into a full-fledged film. It certainly isn't the first time a movie came out based on an "SNL" concept; previous outings include "Blue Brothers," "Wayne's World," "Superstar" "A Night at the Roxbury" and "The Ladies Man."

With "MacGruber" exploding his way into theaters everywhere today, I took a look at five other relatively recent "SNL" sketches that could work as feature films.

Live From MTV.Com It's Friday Afternoon! ... Always wanted to say that... close enough.

When the hilarious Kristen Wiig joined the "SNL" cast back in 2005, she brought with her a number of delightfully awkward but funny characters. However, none of them beat the insanity and bizarreness of »

“MacGruber” is a bomb, while “The Square” rivets with unpredictable thrills

21 May 2010 4:57 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

MacGruber (*1/2 out of 4)

If Pixar and its animated output is Hollywood’s safest bet, then full-length features derived from brief “Saturday Night Live” skits have to be the industry’s riskiest gamble. It’s possible you’ll end up with a “Blues Brothers” or a “Wayne’s World,” comedies that extend their single-joke premise and expand the universe for their potentially amusing characters. But more often than not, you’re destined for an unimaginative dud like “The Ladies Man,” “It’s Pat,” “A Night at the Roxbury,” “Superstar” and, now, “MacGruber.” Why do studios continue to green light such projects? Russian roulette players have better survival rates.

The running gag in a “MacGruber” sketch is that the incompetent hero, played by Will Forte as a poor-man’s version of Richard Dean Anderson’s television adventurer MacGuyver, usually explodes right before he does something lewd or ridiculous. »

Which SNL Skit Do You Want to See as a Movie?

21 May 2010 4:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Wayne's World made us all schwing. We mocked our parental units during Coneheads. And who didn't wonder, "What is love?" with A Night at the Roxbury? Now, another Saturday Night Live skit is getting the big-screen treatment: MacGruber - a MacGuyver send-up about a bumbling special ops agent, starring Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Ryan Phillippe - has opened at cineplexes this weekend. But which SNL skit do you want 90 minutes of next? Quiz: Cougar vs. MacGruber: Who's Who? »

'Shrek' kicks off the sure-to-be successful summer kid flick biz

20 May 2010 1:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It’s summertime (at least at the box office) and Shrek Forever After kicks off the season’s animated kid flicks. With the Shrek series having grossed over $1 billion domestically, the fourth, and likely final, installment in the popular series is destined to be one of the top-grossing films this summer season. How high it opens is another question. It will be buoyed by the 3-D component, but a little bloom may have worn off this rose considering it’s been three years since we’ve had the green ogre in our theaters. Not to mention that the last two »

Tsr Blog – Trying to Create a ‘Saturday Night Live’ Top 7 Movies of All Time

19 May 2010 12:50 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Every week we look around and try to come up with ideas for Top 7 lists at The Scorecard Review. Some are easy to think of like Top 7 Superhero Sequel Seconds as a nod to Iron Man 2. Other times, we have to dig a little.

With MacGruber opening up on Friday, May 21 and me being a bit of a “Saturday Night Live” geek, I figured there couldn’t be a better time to whip up a “Top 7 SNL Movies of All Time.”

Complete MacGruber coverage including reviews and interviews

Now, when I say “bit” of a SNL geek. What I mean to say is, I haven’t missed an episode in probably a decade. If I had to place a bet on the matter, I would say the over/under on episodes missed in the last 12 years would be three. And I would take the under. Don’t get me wrong, »

Movie Preview & Trailer: MacGruber (2010), Starring Will Forte, Kristen Wiig, Val Kilmer, Ryan Phillippe

12 May 2010 3:16 PM, PDT | ScreenStar | See recent ScreenStar news »

It's been a long, long (long, long, long) time since a movie based on a Saturday Night Live (TV) sketch caused anything but severe pain to those who paid their hard-earned bucks hoping against hope that what amused them for a few minutes once in a while on SNL could provide 90 minutes to two hours of laughter in a theater. The Blues Brothers (1980), Wayne's World (1992), Wayne's World 2 (1993) and the vastly underrated Coneheads (1993) aside, we're talking about non-stop clinkers spanning from It's Pat (1994), Stuart Saves His Family (1994) and A Night at the Roxbury (1998) to Blues Brothers 2000 (1998), Superstar (1999) and The Ladies Man (2000). Now, after a decade free of SNL movies, longtime producer Lorne Michaels has seen fit to bring -- of all things -- MacGruber (2010) to the big screen. Why do we say "of all things?" Well, the sketches are essentially spoofs of MacGyver (TV), with Will Forte as MacGruber, »
