‘Celebrity Family Feud’ Photo Diary: Funny Gals vs. Funny Guys in ‘Most Competitive Game Yet’

‘Celebrity Family Feud’ Photo Diary: Funny Gals vs. Funny Guys in ‘Most Competitive Game Yet’
Comedians may make you laugh, but don’t underestimate their competitive spirits. On Sunday’s “Celebrity Family Feud,” the Funny Gals take on the Funny Guys, and it’s far more intense than you’d expect.

The Funny Gals team — June Diane Raphael, Andrea Savage, Kristen Schaal, Nicole Byer, and Carla Gallo — and the Funny Guys team — Paul Scheer, John Gemberling, Adam Pally, Eugene Cordero, Horatio Sanz — compete in what has been reportedly been the most competitive match in the history of the show. We say reportedly because that’s what Scheer himself said, and he’s clearly biased. (Editor’s Note: IndieWire is also biased towards Scheer because he conducted one of the best interviews and photo shoots with “BacheloretteRachel Lindsay ever.)

‘The Bachelorette’: Why The Show’s Parodies Are Better — Yet Hard to Separate From Reality
A grown man wears a penguin onesie. An gimmicky moron shrieks his catchphrase (which, if you happen to forget it, is emblazoned on his T-shirt). A puppet expresses his existential crisis in French, with subtitles. It sounds like a “Saturday Night Live” sketch, but those are all things that really happened during the season premiere of “The Bachelorette.” You know, the real show.

Even if you’ve never seen a complete episode of either “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette,” ABC’s legendary reality franchises, you probably know them well thanks to the depth of its penetration within pop culture.

Exclusive: Emily Deschanel Reflects on the 'Bones' Series Finale: 'Nothing Can Prepare You for the Very End'

Exclusive: Emily Deschanel Reflects on the 'Bones' Series Finale: 'Nothing Can Prepare You for the Very End'
Bones said goodbye after 12 seasons on Tuesday night, with a series finale that paid tribute to the brilliant mind of Dr. Temperance Brennan, by showing what life would be like without it.

In the aftermath of the bombing at the Jeffersonian, Brennan (Emily Deschanel) thankfully survives -- as do Booth (David Boreanaz), Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) and Angela (Michaela Conlin) -- but she knows immediately that something’s wrong. Unable to remember what she was doing prior to the explosion or recall what the team was working on, Brennan tearfully insists to Booth that “something is wrong with me.”

And she’s right. Once the foursome escapes the rubble of the Medico-Legal Lab, Cam (Tamara Taylor) informs the forensic anthropologist that she has a contusion on her corpus callosum, the nerves that join the two hemispheres of the brain. Essentially, the brilliant scientist has lost her ability to process complex information, a devastating

'Bones' Says Goodbye After 12 Seasons: How the 'Squint Squad' Passed Every Test (Especially the Bechdel)

'Bones' Says Goodbye After 12 Seasons: How the 'Squint Squad' Passed Every Test (Especially the Bechdel)
When Bones signs off on Tuesday night, after 12 seasons on Fox, it will do so as the network’s longest-running scripted drama, having solved -- according to finale promos -- 275 cases in 246 episodes. And that prolific conviction rate may not even be the most impressive thing that the series accomplished.

Because Bones -- which was based on the life and works of real-life forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs -- did more than just stay on the air, leapfrogging more than 20 different time slots in its 12-year run. In a television landscape populated with morose antiheroes and sarcastic protagonists that often poke fun at the earnestness of cops-and-science procedurals like Bones, sometimes directly by name (see: American Dad, Bojack Horseman, Bob’s Burgers and more), the show was a champion of justice and evidence, science and guts, “brains and heart.” It told new stories every week, while at the same time unfolding its central characters little by little, making

Movie Review – Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dave Franco, Kiersey Clemons, Beanie Feldstein, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Selena Gomez, Carla Gallo and Lisa Kudrow.

Synopsis:

When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is a blindsiding comedy sequel, not just because it is surprisingly a much more enjoyable film than its predecessor from 2014, but for the fact that its crowded team of five different writers actually managed to tell a follow-up story layered with social commentary on hot topics such as feminism, equality and double standards. Of course, all of this is done featuring loads of juvenile shenanigans that are both to be expected. and downright fun to watch.

Wamg Talks ‘Oiled Meats’ With Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne – Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne have returned to theaters with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the follow-up to 2014’s most popular original comedy. Recently, Wamg was invited to the films press day on the Universal Studios Back Lot in sunny California. While there, members of various outlets got to grill the stars in a BBQ, college party type setting… so, naturally the subject of Efron getting greased up with meat came up. For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, please see the clip below for reference.

For those of you returning for the second time, can you talk about what it was like to work as a team as opposed to adversaries… and Rose, what was it rubbing Zac? You’ve gotta tell us…

Rose Byrne: It was a new experience. I never felt anything quite as hard. [Laughs]

Angry Birds Finally Takes Down Captain America: Civil War at the Box Office

Angry Birds Finally Takes Down Captain America: Civil War at the Box Office
Marvel's massive Phase 3 blockbuster Captain America: Civil War has already made a huge splash at the box office in a short amount of time, crossing $300 million domestically and $1 billion mark at the global box office, after two impressive weekends in release. Despite these huge numbers, the superhero adventure couldn't pull off a third straight win in theaters, going up against Sony's The Angry Birds Movie, Universal's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Warner Bros.' The Nice Guys. Captain America: Civil War was bested by Sony's animated adventure The Angry Birds Movie, which earned an estimated $39 million in its first weekend.

Box Office Mojo reports that The Angry Birds Movie opened in 3,932, which is still significantly lower than Captain America's 4,226-theater rollout, but it's the biggest debut Cap and The Avengers have faced thus far. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising debuted in 3,384 theaters, while The Nice Guys arrived in 2,865 theaters. The

Rose Byrne: Oiling Up Shirtless Zac Efron Was 'Disgusting'

Rose Byrne is a comedy star on the rise, whether you (or she) realizes it or not.

With comedically supercharged co-stars like Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, Ike Barinholtz, Carla Gallo, and Lisa Kudrow, the actress is in hilarious company in "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," but let's not forget that Byrne herself has an enviable Hollywood comedy career, with huge hits like "Bridesmaids," "Neighbors," and "Spy" under her belt. And she's showing no signs of slowing down.

We recently sat down with Byrne to talk about why it made sense for her to do a sequel to 2014's comedy hit "Neighbors," why she and Seth make such a great team, how her pregnancy affected filming, and what oiling up a shirtless Zac Efron is really like (hint: it's not as sexy as it sounds).

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Review

Despite opening with Seth Rogen’s familiar grunts of passion, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising has no intention of safely lambasting Greek Life culture for a second time. The boys may be back, but it’s the women who take Nicholas Stoller’s hilarious sequel by the balls, demanding comedic equality while eviscerating skewed perceptions. Refreshingly, female characters are granted the hard-earned respect they deserve. Pro-feminist, pro-lgbt, pro-whatever, this is no mere movie. It’s a damning response that hears a growing chorus of voices, and loudens their cries with a Hollywood megaphone. Sure, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s five-man writing team may aggressively force their agenda at times, but that doesn’t make their message any less true – or necessary.

You saw Neighbors, so Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising shouldn’t come as a structural surprise. Once again, Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) square off against rowdy college kids living next door.

Can Angry Birds Take Down Captain America at the Box Office?

Can Angry Birds Take Down Captain America at the Box Office?
Later this week, Marvel's massive Phase 3 blockbuster Captain America: Civil War will cross $300 million domestically while passing the $1 billion mark at the global box office, after two impressive weekends in release. But it's possible that it may fall out of the top spot this weekend. The superhero adventure faces its biggest threat to the crown thus far, going up against three highly-anticipated new releases, Sony's The Angry Birds Movie, Universal's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Warner Bros.' The Nice Guys. While it all depends on how much Marvel's Civil War drops in its third frame, we're predicting that The Angry Birds Movie will come out on top.

According to Box Office Mojo, The Angry Birds Movie will open in more than 3,700 theaters, which is still roughly 500 theaters fewer than Captain America's 4,226-theater rollout, but it's the biggest debut Cap and The Avengers have faced thus far. Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising

Seth Rogen has a surprisingly progressive comedy sequel hit in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”

I’m fairly certain that no one was calling for a sequel to the comedy hit Neighbors. That being said, I think that Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is probably better than anyone could have expected it to be. Opening this week, the film is a surprising triumph, a comedy sequel that might even be better than the original. At the very least, it stands tall among comedy sequels, which more or less is a cinematic wasteland, quality wise. It’s also a surprisingly progressive film, which really makes it stand apart. Seth Rogen and his cohorts will likely have another big hit on their hands, and deservedly so. The movie is, obviously, a sequel to Neighbors. We once again see Mac Radner (Rogen) and his wife Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) fighting with a Greek organization that’s taken up residence next door to their home. This time though, it’s a sorority,

Second Opinion – Bad Neighbours 2 (2016)

Bad Neighbours 2, 2016.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller.

Starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Chloe Grace Moretz, Dave Franco, Kiersey Clemons, Ike Barinholtz, Selena Gomez, Carla Gallo and Lisa Kudrow.

Synopsis:

After a sorority moves in next door, which is even more debaucherous than the fraternity before it, Mac and Kelly have to ask for help from their former enemy, Teddy.

Following on from 2014’s Bad Neighbours, its sequel is a pro-feminism, gross out, debauched and at times hilarious comedy.

Set a few years after the original, Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne) are going through escrow as they’re set to move to a bigger house and all is going well until a sorority move in next door. The jokes and set pieces come thick and fast, ensuring that this sequel stands up to its predecessor.

The plot is thin, but for a comedy of this style you’re not exactly
