Tiffany Haddish: Why The ‘Girls Trip’ Star Is This Year’s Comedy Wonder Woman

19 July 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

To watch Tiffany Haddish is to get the vicarious sense that you, too, can do anything, be anything, including yourself. It comes down to just two words: “She ready.”

Read More‘Girls Trip’ Review: Tiffany Haddish Is the Summer’s Biggest Breakout In This Raunchy Comedy

You hear Haddish say “she ready” a lot, in interviews, in her upcoming Showtime stand-up special — Haddish’s production company is even called She Ready Productions. When she says it, don’t think of it as a catchphrase. Really, it’s a mantra.

“Me and my cousins, we came up with it when we were young and trying to sneak into clubs,” she told IndieWire in a phone interview. “When we would come out of the house and you looked cute we’d be like, ‘Yeah, she ready.’ And if you looked bad, we’d be like, ‘Uh uh, she not ready, go back in the house. »

Dicks Before Chicks: The Toxic Romantic Comedy Sub-Genre That Just Won’t Die

14 July 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

Sandwiched in between the summer’s biggest blockbuster offerings and superhero tentpoles are a pair of outrageously funny outliers — comedies that, for all their raunchy gags and wild behavior, center squarely on women and their friendships — in the form of “Rough Night” and the upcoming release “Girls Trip.” Although both films lean hard on their comedic trappings, often in the form of booze-fueled bad behavior from their leading ladies, they also both find unexpected heart and charm in their deeper explorations of the relationships between the very different women that populate them.

But even with films like “Rough Night” and “Girls Trip” hitting the multiplex with a welcome dose of girl power, it seems that even this summer isn’t immune from the most tired and toxic of lady-centric comedy tropes: the dicks before chicks sub-genre. »

Film Review: ‘Girls Trip’

12 July 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Move over, Tyler Perry. Let “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee show you how it’s done. In what could easily prove to be the summer’s word-of-mouth comedy sensation, Lee sends four black ladies — Aka the “Flossy Posse” — on a long-overdue weekend getaway, where “Madea’s Class Reunion” meets “The Hangover” for a raunchy mix of empowerment and intoxication at Essence Fest, New Orleans. There’s girl fighting, male nudity, multiple self-help lessons, an impromptu prayer session and not one but two musical numbers — all of it so consistently outrageous that audiences shouldn’t even miss the absence of a cross-dressing black lady.

Whereas Perry’s work serves mostly as counter-programming “for colored girls who have considered suicide when the rainbow is enuf,” appealing to those who typically feel more comfortable going to church than going to the movies, “Girls Trip” has something for everyone — provided that they’re old enough to see a hard-r-rated comedy »

Ok, We Need to Talk About How Darn Adorable Melissa McCarthy and Hubby Ben Falcone Are

10 July 2017 11:10 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

You may know Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone for their hilarious onscreen moments, like the semi-awkward yet chuckle-worthy sex scene that played during the ending credits of Bridesmaids (you know, the one that involved a gigantic sandwich). Oh, and let's not forget the time Ben made a cameo in The Heat for a quick bar makeout session with Melissa's character, Shannon Mullins. But there's way more to Ben and Melissa than what's been captured for the movies. The dynamic duo met during improv school in 1998 and tied the knot in 2005. Since then, they've welcomed two daughters into the world and have enjoyed an 11-year marriage that we have to imagine has been filled with plenty of laughs. Read on to witness the sweet evolution of their relationship. Related19 Funny Couples Who Know That Nothing's Sexier Than a Sense of Humor »

Megan Leavey movie review: a soldier and her dog

23 June 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… This deeply satisfying military drama demonstrates that a simple, even familiar story can be powerfully effective when told with big heart and solid craft. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for stories about women; I’m a sucker for stories about dogs

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I might have had something in my eye there by the end of this deeply satisfying military drama, which demonstrates that a simple story — even a familiar one — can be powerfully effective when told with big heart and solid craft.

This one isn’t entirely familiar, however. The honking big freshness to Megan Leavey is right there in the title: here it’s a young woman with no direction in life and few skills for coping with adult relationships who gains confidence and finds purpose when she joins the Marines, »

Geena Davis-Backed Common Sense Media Introduces New Gender Equality Rating

21 June 2017 11:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Fun Home” author Alison Bechdel coined the Bechdel Test over thirty years ago as a simple way to measure a story’s gender equity. The test is simple: Does a movie or TV show have more than two female characters who talk to each other about something other than a man? Surprisingly few pass the bar, although things have been changing. Now, the nonprofit media watchdog group Common Sense Media has introduced their own test to determine whether or not a movie or TV show defies gender stereotypes.

“This matters because these rigid stereotypes are holding us back — politically, economically and socially,” reads a report released by Common Sense Media yesterday. “Gender stereotypes riddle our movies, TV shows, online videos, games, and more, telling our boys that it’s Ok to use aggression to solve problems and our girls that their self-worth is tied to their appearance.”

“Everyone I encountered in the industry tried to tell me it wasn’t a problem any more, that it had been fixed,” actress Geena Davis told the New York Times. Davis is an advisor on the project and founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. “Even people making these products are sure they’re gender-balanced when they’re profoundly not.”

The group already evaluates media in seven different categories: Positive messages, positive role models, violence, sex, language, consumerism and drinking, drugs and smoking. They will add an eighth metric to highlight positive gender representation.

The rates of measurement are more subjective than the Bechdel Test, causing some complicated choices. Despite depictions of violence and drug use, “Moonlight” received the stamp of approval for its singular and nuanced exploration of black male sexuality. The Fox series “Bones” made the cut for showing women as scientists, while “Bridesmaids” did not. “There wasn’t necessarily an intent to push against gender stereotypes,” said Common Sense executive editor for ratings Betsy Bozdech.

For now, the ratings will mostly be used as a guide for parents who feel frustrated by Hollywood’s use of outdated gender roles. As Common Sense’s influence grows, the seal of approval may guide potential advertisers as well.

Paul Feig hasn’t had the easiest year. After a string of comedy hits—”Bridesmaids,” “The Heat,” “Spy“—the director went blockbuster with “Ghostbusters,” and immediately faced backlash from hardcore fans who feared that women might ruin their precious childhood memories. It didn’t help that the final result didn’t get the best reviews either, nor that Dan Aykroyd publicly slammed the movie.

Film Review: ‘Rough Night’ is More Than Just a Diamond in the Rough

17 June 2017 1:26 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago - The idiotic notion in Hollywood (and in the basements of fanboy mothers everywhere) that women can’t be funny is a joke in itself. Women have been forced to prove themselves on the male-dominated comedic circuit and have come out as successful as their male counterparts. “Rough Night”, despite all of its flaws, is just the most recent example of that.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

There is no looking past some of the more obvious conventions used in this and many other bachelor/bachelorette-party-gone-wrong genre films. The set up is typically the same, with each character playing a specific archetype, and having each of them riff off of each other. This is unavoidable. “Hangover” did it. “Bridesmaids” did it. “Rough Night” does it as well. The only difference between the other films and this one is the humor is much more centered around the female experience, and that is the most refreshing part of it. »

Rough Night – Review

16 June 2017 5:29 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Zoe Kravitz, Ilana Glazer, Scarlett Johansson, and Jillian Bell star in Lucia Aniello’s bachelorette party comedy Rough Night, Photo by Macall Polay. Courtesy of Columbia/Sony Pictures.

Scarlett Johansson leads a cast of raucous women characters in a comedy that does more than just flip the usual bachelor party trope on its head, in Rough Night. The result is a refreshing take on buddy comedy that not only turns the tables on gender but completely nails how women really interact with each other, in a fitfully funny comedy.

Besides a strong female lead cast, Rough Night is directed by a woman, Lucia Aniello, who also co-wrote the script and is one of the producers. Unlike the typical male-written script, these female characters are spot-on and interact like real women do, even if the situation is over-the-top comedy. While the women characters and how they interact is refreshingly accurate, the humor is sometimes uneven. »

'Rough Night' Review: Female 'Hangover' Never Finds Its Comedic Mojo

15 June 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Four women go wild at a Miami bachelorette party for their Bff Jess (Scarlett Johansson), an uptight candidate for state senator who has to work through some control issues. Good premise. It's club time for the ladies – Frankie (Ilana Glazer), a lesbian activist, and her former lover, real-estate diva Blair (Zoë Kravitz); Pippa (SNL Mvp Kate McKinnon), Jess's Aussie bud from her year abroad; and schoolteacher Alice (Jillian Bell), the college party animal who never reformed and still feels no shame over her rep as a "foot-job girl." Great cast. »

Rough Night Review: The Girl Power Version of Very Bad Things

14 June 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rough Night can best be described as the girl power version of Very Bad Things or Stag. It doesn't go as crazy as those films, but has the same premise. The story is disjointed and runs slow at times, but the ensemble cast is quite funny with one standout performance. I will say that all the women in the audience were howling with laughter throughout. That's the target, so Sony may have a big hit. Rough Night is the feature film debut from Lucia Aniello, a writer and director from Comedy Central's Broad City.

Rough Night begins with Jess (Scarlett Johansson), Alice (Jillian Bell), Blair (Zoe Kravitz), and Frankie (Ilana Glazer) going wild at a frat party in college. After the hijinks, they swear to remain best friends forever. Ten years later, Jess is a successful politician running for state senate. She's engaged to be married to the mild and »

Review: ‘Rough Night’ is an Energetic, Derivative Comedy

14 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a title that most studio comedies set over a single evening could adopt, Rough Night riffs on Very Bad Things, Bridesmaids, The Hangover — and even some Jawbreaker and Weekend at Bernie’s, for good measure — as murder and farce coalesce at a bachelorette party. It’s the sort of premise one hopes will wring out a bit of tension and a good deal of laughs as its talented ensemble walk a high-wire act of crime. While Lucia Aniello (one of many from Broad City involved here) brings a certain energy in her directorial debut and the cast do comedically click, Rough Night too often feels watered-down with a blatant disregard for basic logic, resulting in a comedy that’s ultimately more exasperating than clever.

Though they rarely reunite since their party-hard halcyon days of college, Jess (Scarlett Johansson), Alice (Jillian Bell), Frankie (Ilana Glazer), and Blair (Zoë Kravitz) are »

‘Rough Night’ Review: A Dirty But Sex-Positive Comedy In Which Kate McKinnon Steals the Show Yet Again

14 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We’ve yet to see if Kate McKinnon can lead a movie, but she sure as hell can steal one. She did it in “Ghostbusters,” and she did it again in “Rough Night,” which is surprisingly funny despite a wild premise riddled with potential pitfalls. Set over a bachelorette weekend (imagine a mash-up of “The Hangover” and “Bridesmaids”), “Rough Night” isn’t quite as good as either of those movies, but in a sea of shockingly bad big budget comedies and a criminal lack of female-driven anything, “Rough Night” easily surpasses the rest — with a healthy sprinkle of sex positivity making it thoroughly au currant.
