Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore take their families on safari in Blended.

Two families—led by two single parents—will have to survive their vacation in the 2014 film Blended, the third comedy collaboration between stars Adam Sandler (Grown Ups) and Drew Barrymore (Going the Distance).

After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again.

If You Miss Orange Is the New Black, Watch Weeds

8 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Orange Is the New Black is wonderful. If you haven't watched it, you should watch it. If you've only watched it once, watch it again! There are jokes you missed. But if you feel you've wrung all the joy you can out of its 26 episodes, and you're feeling bereft and lonely, one other show can scratch some of those same itches: Weeds. That shouldn't be too shocking — both shows are from creator Jenji Kohan, after all — but the similarities wind up being stronger than you might think.For those who don't remember, Weeds debuted on Showtime in 2005; Mary Louise Parker stars as the recently widowed Nancy Botwin, mother of two boys and resident of the oppressively tony California suburb of Agrestic. After her husband died, Nancy decided to start selling pot as a way to make money. This, of course, turns out to be more fraught than »

Sandra Bernhard to Guest Star on FX Comedy ‘You’re the Worst’

27 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sandra Bernhard has signed on to appear in FX’s new comedy “You’re the Worst.”

Bernhard will play herself in an episode titled ‘Equally Dead Inside.”  Some of her previous television credits include “Rosanne,” “The L Word,” and “Switched at Birth.”

“You’re the Worst” is an original comedy from “Weeds” writer Stephen Falk.  A dark romantic comedy, the show follows two people who haven’t been very successful with love or happiness.

Narcissistic and self-destructive, Jimmy (Chris Geere) thinks that all relationships are doomed, while the cynical but people-pleasing Gretchen (Aya Cash) knows that relationships aren’t for her.  So when the two meet at a wedding, it’s only natural that they go home together and, despite their better judgement, begin to find themselves falling for each other.

“You’re the Worst” premieres at 10:30 p.m. July 17 on FX.

Bernhard is repped by Genesis Entertainment.

Orange Is the New Black, Ep 2.13: “We Have Manners. We Are Polite.” is like two different shows in one

24 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Orange Is the New Black, Season 2, Episode 13: “We Have Manners. We Are Polite.”

Written by Jenji Kohan

Directed by Contantine Makris

Released Friday, June 6 on Netflix Instant

Bad seed,” “insane,” “psycho,” “the real evil”—these are just some of the ways in which Vee is referred to this episode. Strangely, it is a finale that works hard in its side stories to show a fuzzy line between good people and bad people, and mostly succeeds in doing so. So why exactly it features a central story that works to prove the complete opposite, about a sociopath with no redeeming qualities who is treated like a cancer on the prison, is a mystery. Are we really supposed to cheer her death after we just learned our lesson over the course of two seasons that life is not so clear cut? Close out the story singing “Ding Dong the Witch Is »

Piper Chapman and Nancy Botwin Have a Weird Amount of Things in Common

24 June 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If Orange Is the New Black has ever reminded you of Weeds, consider this: Jenji Kohan created both hits. Even though the shows have two totally different premises and characters, we can't help but notice the similarities between their deeply flawed yet lovable heroines, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker). After bidding farewell to Nancy in the Weeds series finale in 2012, we couldn't wait to see what Kohan had in store for us next. Fortunately, she hasn't disappointed with Oitnb, giving us a badass who carries Nancy's torch. Keep reading to see all the times Piper reminded us of Nancy. Source: Netflix, Showtime »

You’re The Worst Red-Band Trailer Turns Up The Raunch

23 June 2014 5:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Middle Eastern political drama Tyrant, vampire thriller The Strain and Judy Greer-Nat Faxon comedy Married all on the way this summer, You’re the Worst almost certainly holds the unfortunate title of least-anticipated FX show. The raunchy comedy follows two self-destructive individuals (Aya Cash and Chris Geere) who attempt to turn their one-night stand into a relationship, despite each preferring purely physical interactions with the opposite sex.

Today, a new red-band trailer has landed online, making You’re the Worst seem more like a hard-r comedy than a network show. In the trailer, there are copious amounts of sex scenes and sex jokes, with lots of partial nudity and foul language. Whether that will be a winning formula for the show, from Weeds writer Stephen Falk, remains to be seen. Cash is clearly going to be a draw for the male audience, as is Geere for the female audience, »

The True Story Behind Orange Is the New Black

17 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you're a fan of Orange Is the New Black, then you know by now that it's based on the real experiences of Piper Kerman. Kerman, known as Piper Chapman (and played by Taylor Schilling) on the show, published a bestselling memoir by the same name. While Kerman says the show, headed by Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, is not a docudrama whatsoever, her real-life experience does come through in the series. Without giving too much away, here are factual details behind the series. Source: Getty / Charles Norfleet The Crime After college, the real Piper Kerman fell for a woman caught up in an international drug ring. In the book, she calls her Nora, and if you watch the show, you know her as Alex (played by Laura Prepon). The real Piper smuggled $10,000 from Chicago to Brussels, Belgium, during her time with Nora, and 10 years later, the law caught up with her. »

16 June 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's currently being reported that Steve Martin will be reprising his role as cynical businessman George Banks in Father of the Bride 3.

Martin is tipped to return alongside Diane Keaton as wife Nina Banks in the comedy, which will see the couple's son Matty revealing his plans to marry the son of a Us Navy Seal.

1991's Father of the Bride was based on the 1950 movie of the same, while 1995's sequel was loosely based on 1951's Father's Little Dividend.

As we anticipate a potential Part III, catch up on the major stars' exploits since - and compare how they looked then and now:

Steve Martin - already an established Hollywood name before Father of the Bride - plays hapless patriarch George Banks, who suffers a series of ridiculous misfortunes (and a mild breakdown - the too-plentiful pack of hotdogs springs to mind) after his daughter announces that she's getting married. »

Nickelodeon Renews ‘Sanjay and Craig’ for Season 3 (Exclusive)

11 June 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Annecy –Nickelodeon has renewed “Sanjay and Craig,” featuring voice stars Maulik Pancholy (“30 Rock,” “Weeds”) and Chris Hardwick (“The Talking Dead,” “Attack of the Show!”), for a 20 half-hour-episode Season 3.

The third season order comes before Season 2 (pictured) has begun to air next month. That’s a big show of confidence from the cable channel for an animated comedy about 12-year-old Indian-American Sanjay and his best friend, who happens to be a talking snake (Hardwick).

But the early renewal makes large sense. Created by Jim Dirschberger, Jay Howell and Andreas Trolf, and first broadcast May 2013, “Sanjay and Craig” has rapidly morphed into a ratings leader.

In the U.S., year-to-date through May, it is Nickelodeon’s No. 2 animated show across all TV, only trailing ratings stalwart “SpongeBob SquarePants.” Year-to-date episode premieres have averaged a 4.9 kids 2-11 rating and three million total viewers, per Nickelodeon sources.

“We really believe in the property, are very happy with the results. »

Orange Is the New Black, Ep 2.06: “You Also Have a Pizza” is marking characters and time

Orange Is the New Black, Season 2, Episode 2: “You Also Have a Pizza”

Written by Stephen Falk

Directed by Allison Anders

Released Friday, June 6 on Netflix Instant

“Would the moon do this?” Larry asks Polly as he kisses her, trying to prove to Piper and the world that he carries his own light and not just reflecting other people’s. Usually, if you have to ask that question, then the answer is yes, the moon would do that, and you are looking desperate trying to find a way not to be the exact parasite you are. But at least taking some action is something to move forward with, if only for an inch—and that’s what seems to be happening with a lot of Orange Is the New Black’s story lines this season. Little by little, inmates and officers are trying to move through the world around them, »

Radio Free Albemuth Debuts Poster

10 June 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

One of the truly nagging difficulties with indie films is that it is often quite a while before you actually get the chance to catch them. Such is the case with Radio Free Albemuth, which made the festival rounds a few years ago now, and is finally getting released. If nothing else, it should be enough for many to know that it is based on a Philip K. Dick work. If that isn’t enough, it managed quite a lot of praise from those who caught it during that festival tour.

Starring Jonathan Scarfe, Alanis Morissette, and Boardwalk Empire’s Shea Whigham, the film is hitting in select theaters on June 27th, and has released a new poster.

Any Sci-Fi fans out there need to take a look at this one, and make sure you get to it if you can. Philip K. Dick stories may sometimes get twisted around in the film adaptation, »

'Orange Is the New Black' Season 2: Color Us Impressed

10 June 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Going to jail" is always a more compelling TV premise than "still being in jail." So the whole idea of a second season for Orange Is The New Black might have posed a challenge. But the Netflix drama's second season, released as one big ruin-your-life binge, is even stronger than the already-amazing first one. The female inmates of Litchfield Penitentiary are unlike any other characters on TV — everywhere you look, some dynamic actress is gnawing the marrow out of a role she's spent her whole career fighting for. There's hardly »
