“Annie Hall” has been named the funniest screenplay in voting by the members of the Writers Guild of America.
The script by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman topped “Some Like it Hot,” “Groundhog Day,” “Airplane!” and “Tootsie,” which make up the rest of the top five. “Young Frankenstein,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “National Lampoon’s Animal House” rounded out the top 10.
The awards for the 101 funniest screenplays were announced at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood at the conclusion of two hours of panel discussions and clips, hosted by Rob Reiner. He noted that his “This Is Spinal Tap” script had finished at the No. 11 spot — a coincidence that recalled the “go to 11” amplifier joke in the film.

Rob Riggle and Ken Jeong used Adele’s powerful new ballad “Hello” to help make their picks for this week’s Fox NFL Sunday. In the video, the comedic actors who both appeared in “The Hangover” make fun of the teams in the Nfc East. “I think I finally get Adele/because loving and losing’s hard as hell,” Jeong sings in the parody. “Late game interceptions fill D.C. with shame/but at least they distract folks, from our racist name/eit’s soooo racist.” See Video: Ellen DeGeneres Spoofs Herself Into Adele's Music Video For 'Hello' Riggle chimes »

Last year, the top twelve films tallied a mere $79.9 million over the final weekend in October. It was the sixth worst weekend of 2014. Looking over the list of newcomers hitting theaters this weekend*Burnt, Our Brand is Crisis and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse*and the lackluster returns of last week's new releases, it appears this weekend's top twelve will be even worse by about $10 million. Despite four new wide releases last weekend, none of them were able to crack the top three. The Martian has taken the #1 spot three out of the last four weekends, returning to the top position last weekend after briefly ceding to Sony's Goosebumps the week prior. Both films have shown small, weekend-to-weekend drops and it appears they'll be jockeying for first and second place again. Managing to play to two different audiences, both films should drop in the 33% range for weekend's just north of $10 million. »

You’ve gotta hand it to Bradley Cooper. In five short years, he’s gone from being “that douchey guy from The Hangover” to a bona fide A-list movie star and perennial Oscar nominee. He hit a bit of a rough patch this summer with the Aloha fiasco, but he’s hoping to bounce back this fall with the John Wells-directed dramedy Burnt. The […]

Jon Lucas & Scott Moore ("The Hangover") will helm the project about a woman with a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, overachieving kids, beautiful home, stunning looks and still holding down a career. However she's over-worked, over committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap.
Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms and all go on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities, going on a wild un-mom like binge of freedom, fun and self-indulgence - putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

Good idea, Hollywood. "Bad Moms" began life as a film with Leslie Mann set to star and Judd Apatow producing, but that's changed now. Instead, writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore of "The Hangover" have managed to move the film from Paramount to Stx Entertainment, and they've got Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell, and Mila Kunis all set to star. That's as strong a trio of comic performers as any male-driven movie you can point at in development right now. One of the best set visits I've ever been on was for "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." Yes, part of that is because the film was shooting in Hawaii at the Turtle Bay Resort, and we stayed at the resort for the week I was there watching them work. That helped. But part of it was also because it was a group of people who all seemed determined to prove just how »

Initially hatched at Paramount Pictures, the comedy feature formerly known as Bad Moms has undergone something of a rebranding, now that The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the project has been given a new lease of life at Stx Entertainment, with Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Christina Applegate joining the cast.
Pulling the comedy back from the brink, many feared that Bad Moms would be condemned to development Hell rather quickly after both Leslie Mann and producer Judd Apatow exited the project earlier this year. Upon acquiring the project, Stx announced that The Hangover‘s Jon Lucas & Scott Moore would write and direct the “timely picture,” and the studio mapped out plans to cast “half-dozen strong female lead roles.”

Stx Entertainment has picked up and is running with the film rights to the movie formerly known as Bad Moms, the R-rated comedy written and to be directed by The Hangover duo Jon Lucas and Scott Moore that had been set up at Paramount with Leslie Mann starring and Judd Apatow producing. Scheduling thwarted the Mann-Apatow plans, though. But now the movie is back in business at Stx, with Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell aboard to star. Suzanne Todd and Bill… »
Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate, Kristen Bell have signed on to star in an untitled comedy for Stx Entertainment that was previously known as “Bad Moms,” TheWrap has learned. “The Hangover” writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore will direct from their own screenplay. Suzanne Todd is producing with Bill Block. Like most modern mothers, Amy (Kunis) takes care of everyone but herself. Her life is perfect — a happy marriage, overachieving kids, a beautiful home, and 365 good-hair days a year. She bakes for the school bake sale and chairs every committee, all the while holding down a career. And, she makes it all. »

You can’t stop Bad Moms. The comedy project, which was to have starred Leslie Mann and be produced by Judd Apatow for Paramount but languished after the duo left, is back on, this time with Mila Kunis, Christina Applegate and Kristen Bell. Stx Entertainment has stepped up to pick up the project, which is now untitled, with Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers behind The Hangover, remaining on board to direct. The duo also penned the script. The story centers on an over-achieving mother with a seemingly perfect life whose stress lines are one bad day from cracking.

Harry Shearer, who is probably best known for voicing a total of 23 characters on The Simpsons for over two decades (including Mr. Burns and Ned Flanders) has just joined the cast of the feature comedy Bastards. The film marks the directorial debut of cinematographer Lawrence Sher (The Hangover). Justin Malen (Bad Teacher 2) wrote the screenplay for the film about twin brothers (Ed Helms and Owen Wilson) who start searching for their real father when they realize their… »
Lego Batman has found its Batgirl! In a move that will only add on to her already illustrious Cbm career, Rosario Dawson has signed on to voice Barbara Gordon a.k.a. Batgirl in Warner Bros.' upcoming The Lego Movie spin-off. She joins an impressive cast that already features Will Arnett (Arrested Development) reprising his role as the Dark Knight, Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) as his sidekick Robin, and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) as the villainous Joker. This will be Dawson's latest foray into the Cbm genre after her role in two Sin City movies, voicing Wonder Woman in DC's animated feature Justice League: Throne Of Atlantis, and voicing Artemis in DC's animated Wonder Woman film. In addition to those roles, she also currently stars as the Night Nurse on three of Marvel's Netflix series: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, & Luke Cage. Chris McKay (Robot Chicken) will direct »
Fresh off of “Community’s” Yahoo season, Ken Jeong is headlining and producing his own show, ABC’s medical comedy “Dr. Ken.” Formerly a doctor in real life, the one he plays on TV is loosely based on his life. Jeong was leaving pre-production on the Sony lot when he called Variety: “I’m in the writers’ room every day, so the show has taken over my life now,” he says, “In a good way.”
How much does your life influence the show?
It’s loosely based on my life working as a physician in L.A., and loosely based on my family life. I’m married with two children, although in real life I have two beautiful twin daughters, and there’s no conflict — (but) no show is necessary if you don’t show any conflict.
Do you enjoy being behind the camera?
This is the first time I »

If you were to ask me, I.d tell you that Rocket Raccoon . the sarcastic anti-hero from James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy -- sounds nothing like Bradley Cooper. The Oscar nominee affects some type of off-key accent when voicing his lines for Guardians, so there.s no trace of the native Philadelphian accent that can be heard in films like American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook or The Hangover. However, Rocket Raccoon almost sounded very, very different. though he still would have had Philadelphia ties. During a recent, and impromptu, Q-and-a event held on his Facebook page, James Gunn revealed that none other than Danny DeVito was one of the voices that they considered when looking for Rocket. But for obvious reasons, it didn.t work out. Gunn explained: In all honesty, Danny DeVito is one of the voices we tried out. But Danny DeVito is an older man »
ABC’s new offering “Dr. Ken” lives and dies by the energy of its lead Ken Jeong. The actor, who played drug addled in “The Hangover” and borderline on “Community,” does an about-face as family-man Hmo physician Dr. Ken Park, who resents his whiny patients and frets about the hypothetical (so far) misadventures of his teenage daughter. The show’s other players gently orbit Jeong’s bright star and are sometimes scorched by his flares of humor in an otherwise formulaic sitcom with its canned laughter and bright, uniformly lit set. That “Dr. Ken” should be so unexciting seems both a shame and somewhat. »

Perhaps your first, um, exposure to the work of Ken Jeong came in The Hangover, when he, as the flamboyant gangster Mr. Chow, pounced out of a car’s trunk wearing nothing but socks. A select audience knows Jeong as Spanish instructor Señor Chang on Community. Still others may know Jeong as the doctor who gave them an annual physical exam. What? Yes, Jeong is also a real-life physician (he keeps his medical license current during his screen career), and he’s the leading man in ABC’s sitcom Dr. Ken (premiering Friday, Oct. 2, at 8:30pm Et/Pt), loosely based on his professional … Continue reading →

Ken Jeong was a doctor before becoming a comic and actor, a bit of biographical trivia that’s about the first and last interesting thing associated with “Dr. Ken.” Designed to trade off Jeong’s profile from “Community” and “The Hangover” movies, the sitcom does build on ABC’s recent run of shows with minority leads. And, in the search to find a mate for “Last Man Standing,” it features another father who seldom knows best. Sitting through many episodes beyond the pilot would require extremely low expectations, but at least no one would worry about fracturing their funny bone.
Jeong plays Dr. Ken Park, who still has patients despite behaving like a Don Rickles-style insult comic at work. That’s demonstrated by an opening in which he chides a man about needing a colonoscopy, which provides an excuse for a flurry of jokes regarding the targeted area, and »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.
In the opening scene of ABC’s new half-hour sitcom Dr. Ken, allegedly brilliant physician Ken Park diagnoses a patient suffering from hemorrhoids with a pun about him being a “Web M.D.-bag” for using the internet to self-diagnose, mimicking the patients cries of dissension as they storm out of the office, refusing his treatment. So, you may be thinking, it’s a searing look into the life of a curmudgeon doctor and his attempts at balancing family and work? No, that’s what it wants to be – House meets Modern Family – but the only condition it’ll alleviate is insomnia and the only humor it’ll rustle from you is the thought of its script getting greenlit.
ABC has been on a decent streak of family sitcoms that not only populate themselves with endearingly familiar characters, but are fueled by a certain affinity for diversity (Blackish, »
