Back in 1998, a subversive new comedy show South Park lampooned star of stage and screen Barbra Streisand in the episode “Mecha-Streisand.” In the episode, a monstrous Streisand terrorizes Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman with her warbling singing voice and inflated sense of self. None of the boys know who she is or why she thinks she is a superstar, but she keeps singing her greatest hits, expecting them to know who she is. The episode satirized Barbra Streisand's public persona, and it played on the fact that most young people are unfamiliar with her as a performer and know less about her career. If I hadn't grown up with Streisand's films, I wouldn't have believed that this Hollywood ego-maniac was ever a great leading lady. For that reason, Funny Girl should be required viewing for anyone who loves movie musicals. Correction, it should be required viewing for anyone who loves movies. »

As The Hangover Part III looks set to clean up at the box office, Simon wonders why comedies can't aim a bit higher....
Amongst the many majestic scenes in Carl Reiner's hugely underappreciated comedy classic All Of Me is one where Steve Martin has to go the toilet. By this time, he's sharing a body with Lily Tomlin, with each of them controlling one half of it. Thus, Martin needs Tomlin to, bluntly, do the necessaries.
It's brilliantly and simply shot, with Tomlin's face the reflection in the mirror, delivering a difficult performance pitch perfectly. Martin, not for the first time in his career, is genuinely astounding too, one of the most gifted comedy actors of all time. They take a simple scene, and turn it into something special. Basically, two gifted performers sell you a superb, very funny scene about a man having a pee. »
Gluten intolerance, it turns out, is no laughing matter. In a headline you’d expect more from an episode of South Park, or some such other source of non-political correctness, the Disney’s Channel offering, Jessie, gets one of its episodes pulled from the airwaves thanks to some ill humored pokes at the real life medical problem. An apology has also been issued.
“To our viewers, we received your feedback about tonight’s Jessie episode which some of you accessed early on Video-on-Demand. We are removing this particular episode from our regular programming schedule and will re-evaluate its references to gluten restrictions in the character’s diet. Please accept our apologies for the upset this episode caused you and your family. We value your feedback and thank you for watching Disney Channel.”
The statement appeared on the Disney Channel’s official Facebook page and read to me as very contrite. »

I'll warn you right now; this film trailer lacks the quality of a big budget movie. That being said it does feature a crazy puppet, former WCW star Diamond Dallas Page, pro football player Josh Cribbs, Scrubs' little janitor Martin Klebba, and friend of South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, Dian Bachar. The film looks to be serious, and in some portions it does succeed in looking very creepy. I'm sure this one will at least get a Netflix release so watch the trailer and be on the lookout for it sometime next year.

Since these were some of the first images to be ingrained in our little style psyches, we decided to shine the spotlight on some very deserving 'toons. See our list below and tell us if we missed any of your favorites!
1. Arnold from "Hey Arnold!"
That plaid shirt, those skinny pants and the semi-ironic baseball cap: Was he not the original hipster?
2. Quinn Morgendorffer from "Daria"
Quinn's smiley face crop top was definitely one of the coolest garments in cartoon existence. She said it best herself: "I want to be a role model for all you people, even the ones who need makeup really badly."
She certainly did march in her own parade, didn't she?

There's a fair amount of discussion on the interwebs about which clichéd line appears more frequently than any other in the movies. While there are a few contenders, one that's cited again and again is "Let's get out of here!" One enthusiastic movie fan created a supercut of people saying the line or variations of it, and it's amazing how often it's used. By the way, it's Friday afternoon. Are you still at the office? Get out of there!

Fox has one of its better slates coming your way with the new season, especially if you take the midseason shows into account. Some of these shows may not jump out at you now as must-see, but some of them are going to take over, if I’m any judge anyway.
Clear showcase offerings Dads, Almost Human, and Us & Them are guaranteed to take off early. Almost Human has J.J. Abrams recognition to pull people in, though it looks to be a show that could flounder after a few episodes, even if I hope it doesn’t. The other two are going to become hits. Unfortunately, we have to wait until mid-season for the Gavin & Stacey remake.
Rake also looks like a winner, as long as the translation can be made to work as an Americanized product, and the show actually delivers what made the Australian original so brilliant.

Bill Hader's departure from NBC's Saturday Night Live is timely enough after seven healthy seasons on the show, though quite inconveniently as his most memorable character—the flamboyantly eccentric Weekend Update clubber Stefon—hits his peak and further cements Hader as a household name.
"It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point," Hader told The New York Times. "It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it’s just time to go.'"
Though Hader may be best known for his status as a leading player on NBC's Saturday Night Live since 2005, his breakout roles in comedy flicks like Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Tropic Thunder and behind-the-scenes work on South Park have also elevated his status as a comedic superstar.
But the attention now turns to two other SNL veterans who may be leaving the hallowed stage for greener pastures: while the »

Justin agreed to lend his voice to the long-running Fox comedy — but did he know he was going to be the butt of a joke?
Eight little words don’t usually elicit a strong reaction from people — unless they’re spoken by Justin Bieber. The Canadian superstar made a brief appearance on the May 13 episode of The Simpsons, alongside the likeness of manager Scooter Braun, and Beliebers are raging out over the 10-second cameo.
Ok, here’s what went down, in cased you missed it: Springfield was holding a “10 and below” talent show, which the Biebs tried to enter. But when the security guard pointed out Justin was clearly older than 10, and “clearly Justin Bieber,” the actor shrugged and stormed off.
“That’s another 25 bucks we’ll never see,” he said, with Scooter standing by his side. “God!”
So where did the diss come in, »

In a pre Breaking-Bad summer where exceptional shows like Mad Men and Game of Thrones come but once a week, alot of viewers are left with fantastic amounts of time to invest in great programming. So for whoever’s got the time here are the 5 best experiences British television has to offer. Each entry has a distinctively British feel and excels to varying degrees in how well they capture the essence of the genre. In other words crime thrillers should be suspenseful, comedies should be funny etc, all while staying as British as possible.
5) Little Britain – 3 seasons – 27 episodes
If this list was based solely on British authenticity then Little Britain would be number 1. The shows comedic parodying of everything British is absolutely hysterical, highlighting some of British media’s best covered archetypes. From the Prime Minister, to sassy urban school girls, to pubs and bar maids, Little Britain’s got a take on them all. »

With the fates of most of their existing shows already decided, Fox has announced four new dramas and five new sitcoms for the 2013-14 season. One of the comedies is called Enlisted. It stars Geoff Stults and was created by Cougar Town's Kevin Biegel.
Here's the network's description and a photo from the pilot:
Enlisted is an irreverent and heartfelt military-set single-camera family comedy starring Geoff Stults that follows three brothers getting to know each other again on a small Florida Army base and the group of misfits who surround them.
Enlisted is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, and written and created by Kevin Biegel ("Cougar Town," "Scrubs," "South Park"). The series is executive-produced by Biegel and Mike Royce ("Men of a Certain Age," "Everybody Loves Raymond"). The pilot was directed by Phil Traill ("Suburgatory," Raising Hope).
The series orders include Seth MacFarlane’s live-action entry “Dads,” which already had a six-episode commitment that has now been bumped up to 13 segs. The 20th Century Fox TV series revolves around two best friends, played by Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi, whose lives change when their fathers move in with them.

“Us and Them,” from Sony Pictures TV and BBC Worldwide Prods., is the only detour from the male-focus. It’s a wrong rom-com remake of the BBC2 series “Gavin and Stacey” starring Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel.

Baby… baby… baby… d’oh! Will you tune in for Justin’s big debut?
Justin Bieber may be in the middle of a world tour, but it looks like he’s taking a quick detour through Springfield this weekend. The Biebs is playing himself — though he’s sporting his out-dated swag-cut for some reason — on the May 12 episode of The Simpsons, where he’ll tangle with the original prankster Bart Simpson.

Eight-day event on the Italian island of Sicily is gearing up to showcase 30 films, seven shorts and five docus, along with 10 master class programs.
This year fest explores horror and comedy as the deepest appeals of the bigscreen, per general manager Tiziana Rocca.
Rocca joins artistic director Mario Sesti — both in their second year — at the helm.
The fest will continue to shine the spotlight, as it did last year, on web cinema. Preems will include skeins such as Amanda Flor’s “Marduk,” described as a combo of caustic cynicism and “South Park”-esque antics, among others.
“This year’s program features novelties aimed at attracting people from all over the world with ad hoc initiatives and the involvement of many leading foreign partners who »
