‘Friends From College’ Season 2 Ordered by Netflix

22 August 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Netflix has renewed director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and writer Francesca Delbanco‘s comedy series, Friends from College, for a second season. Stoller and Delbanco’s show wasn’t reviewed kindly by most critics, but with a season 2 on the way, the sad comedy must’ve found its audience. The Netflix program features an excellent cast as a very flawed group of friends. […]

BBC Culture Names the Top 100 Comedies of All Time, From ‘Some Like It Hot’ to ‘Airplane!’

22 August 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Well, nobody’s perfect,” may be the last line of “Some Like It Hot,” but BBC Culture’s newest list of the 100 greatest comedies of all time comes pretty darn close. Billy Wilder’s cross-dressing buddy comedy earned the most votes, but the rest of the list is as robust and varied as one would hope, containing slam dunk smash hits as well as lesser known hidden gems.

Judd Apatow interview: The Big Sick

27 July 2017 3:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matt Edwards Jul 28, 2017

Judd Apatow chats to us about The Big Sick, directing, stand-up comics and bad interviews...

Heading into UK cinemas this week, The Big Sick is a reinvigorating romantic comedy. It has a brilliant cast of characters, a unique pitch (boy meets girl, boy loses girl, awkward situations and a medically induced coma ensue) and a balance of drama and comedy that means you never know whether to brace yourself for a broken heart or split sides. A breath of fresh air, it’s the sort of film regular cinema goers need. It’s also the sort of film that needs regular cinema goers; it needs those that see it and enjoy it to shout about it, to tell people that it’s worth paying attention to.

Directed by Michael Showalter, the film stars Kumail Nanjiani, who co-wrote the script with his real life spouse Emily V. Gordon »

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie review

26 July 2017 1:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Captain Underpants is the family movie of the summer. Here's our review...

Unless you have fond memories of Dav Pilkey's series of books, it's entirely possible that Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie has tra-la-laaa'd its way into cinemas under your radar. Hopefully, you'll seek it out, because this is the funniest and most creative film to come out of DreamWorks Animation in a long time.

The imaginations fuelling the story are fourth-grade children George and Harold (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch), who break up the monotony of their life at the unusually austere Jerome Horwitz Elementary School by drawing comics, playing pranks and generally trying to make each other laugh.

Their principal, Mr. Krupp (Ed Helms) hates them for it and on the brink of banishing them to separate classes, an unexpectedly powerful cereal box gift enables the boys to hypnotise him. He comes to believe »

Friends from College: why Generation X can’t grow up

17 July 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The latest screen depiction of midlife crisis shows it’s not just the characters who are in denial about getting older – it’s the film-makers, too

‘I am 40 years old. The drawbridge is going up, man. It’s now or never for me,” says a panicked Keegan-Michael Key in Friends from College, Netflix’s self-explanatory new sitcom. As a young man, Key’s character, Ethan, was destined to write the Great American Novel; now he’s trying to get his head around writing Ya fiction, which brings him to the shocking revelation that he is no longer a young adult himself.

For viewers of a similar demographic, Friends from College might well be too close for comfort. The fact that Ethan and his buddies are entitled Harvard graduates makes them easier to laugh at, but this is Generation X heading into middle age, and they’re really not handling it well. »

The Big Sick – Review

6 July 2017 7:34 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I’m battling a 1,400-year-old culture!” lead actor Kumail Nanijani yells amid an emotional dispute with his girlfriend in the Sundance-praised film The Big Sick. This culture he’s specifically referencing is the Pakistani-born, Muslim belief household that believes in arranged marriage with another woman from his own country. And yet, this culture can also allude to the romantic-comedy genre that American filmgoers are used to viewing on the big screen. It’s not every day where a Middle Eastern actor gets top billing in a motion picture released across the country, and it’s quite another thing to see that someone play opposite a blonde-haired, blue-eyed American woman. The genre tends to skew predominantly white across the board. So, it’s with great fortitude that Kumail is willing to put aside his personal fears and squash cinematic norms to share a story about his and screenwriter Emily V. Gordon’s real-life romantic courtship. »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in July 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 July 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. “Friends From College” Season 1 (available July 14)

Why Should I Watch It? Ivy League graduates are largely insufferable, but Netflix is challenging that notion by assembling the most likable cast in recent memory to play a bunch of Harvard alumni reuniting in their late 30s. (Ok, so this list pretty much proves that all famous Ivy Leaguers are awesome, but you know the non-famous are impossible bores. No? Just me? Damn it.) Anyway, “Friends From College” brings together Keegan-Michael Key (Ethan), Cobie Smulders (Lisa), Annie Parisse (Sam), Nat Faxon (Nick), Fred Savage (Max), and Jae Suh Park (Marianne) — plus Kate McKinnon and Ike Barinholtz as guest stars — in a comedic exploration of old friendships from the creative minds of Nicholas Stoller (“Neighbors: Sorority Rising,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and Francesca Delbanco. Sounds like an ideal mixer, no? Good — at least we can agree on something.

‘The Big Sick’ Producer Judd Apatow: Inside His Unlikely Comedy Empire

20 June 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Editor’s Note: This article is presented in partnership with Amazon and Lionsgate’s release of The Big Sick – opening in theaters June 23rd in New York & Los Angeles and everywhere July 14. Find out more here.

Kumail Nanjiani is about to become a movie star. His film “The Big Sick” was the hit of this year’s Sundance Film Festival and quickly became the best reviewed comedy in recent memory.

Nanjiani is an unlikely star. A Pakistani-American stand up comedian – best known for playing the straight man in supporting roles, most notably as Dinesh in HBO’s “Silicon Valley”. Instead, the way he got his breakout role in “The Big Sick” was writing it himself. Under the mentorship of producer of Judd Apatow, Nanjiani and his wife, co-writer Emily V. Gordon, spent three years developing the story of their unusual real life courtship and Nanjiani’s conflict of keeping his »

Netflix has released the first trailer for the upcoming comedy series Friends from College. The show revolves around a group of friends from Harvard who are facing down their forties and having trouble navigating old friendships, romantic relationships, and growing older. Keegan-Michael Key and Cobie Smulders lead the ensemble, and the series hails from creator Nicholas Stoller, the director behind thoughtful romantic comedies like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and The Five-Year Engagement. Stoller directed all eight episodes of this first season, and while this trailer is funny and engaging, that’s the real draw for me here. His breakout … »

Rock Dog Review

13 June 2017 5:06 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Blending the coming-of-age formula with a musical journey makes for a fitting collaboration. During those formative years, when we as teenagers attempt to discover exactly who we are and how we fit into this world, our own quest is often enriched, and illustrated by a soundtrack, as our change in mentality and outlook is matched by our musical choices, constantly discovering new sounds, bands and artists that change our own perception of the world we inhabit. Then there’s the social element, epitomised in Almost Famous – in how this art-form brings us together with other likeminded individuals – and this is what lays down the foundations for Ash Brannon’s animation Rock Dog to thrive off, steeped in relatable themes. Only difference is, our protagonist is a dog.

Summer TV Preview: 20 New and Returning Comedies Worth Watching

6 June 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Television used to take a breather during the summer, letting audiences focus instead on intermittent relaxation, sun-drenched weekends, various fruit-based drinks and more life beyond the screen.

But there’s no such thing as summer vacation any more in TV land. Not only are plenty of spring series continuing into the summer (or even the fall, in the case of “Twin Peaks”), but the broadcast and cable networks, plus the streaming services, have a jam-packed lineup of new shows waiting in the wings.

In other words, put away your swimsuit. You won’t be needing it — there’s too much to watch. As part of IndieWire’s annual tradition to highlight the best of what television has to offer in the summer months, our team has lined up highlights of the best new and returning programs. Crank up the AC, pull down the blinds and dig in.

Movie Review – Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (2017)

1 June 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, 2017.

Directed by David Soren.

Featuring the voice talents of Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms, Nick Kroll, Jordan Peele, and Kristen Schaal.

Synopsis:

Two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold, hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.

As superhero films shift more in the direction of mature themes (even the PG-13 offerings are starting to push the envelope), a specifically child-friendly hopeful franchise starter such as Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie is an appreciated gift. Based on the series of novels by Dav Pilkey, directed by David Soren (Turbo), and notably written by Nicholas Stoller (most known for critically acclaimed R-rated comedic efforts such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall, also having successfully proven himself at adapting material for younger ones by writing both The Muppets Movies), the animated feature expectedly embraces lowbrow toilet humor, »
