Landline (2017) – Review

It’s nostalgia time at the ole’ multiplex once again. So, is it a tender coming of age story set in the 50’s, or a raunchy comedy with the stoners of the 60’s? Nope, it’s a family “dramedy” set in the long ago 1990’s !?! Aw, come on! I can get the 80’s “throwbacks’ with TV shows like “The Goldbergs” and “Stranger Things”. And this Summer’s big animated hit Despicable Me 3 even has a villain (Balthazar Bratt) whose whole schtick was that tacky decade. But the 90’s already? Excuse the venting, I know I now know how my folks must’ve felt about “Happy Days” in the 70’s. Despite the era, this new flick seems closer to the NYC intellectual upper class (upper East side) quirky slice of life cinema forged by Woody Allen. So. let’s set the cinema “way-back” machine to 1995, when few folks had cellular phones,

The Tool This Comedian Uses to Bring People Together

Writing good comedy is hard. Beyond grappling with stage fright and memorizing your material, there's an entirely new challenge built around your audience. How well do you know them? Will you be able to make them laugh? On Knock Knock, Rachel Antonoff's new series from Popsugar and Watchable, New York-based actor and comedian Jordan Carlos talks about how he uses comedy to bring people together. He spends a lot of time prepping - sometimes a minute of comedy can take him days and weeks to complete - and sticks with benign topics. "If you talk about the most basic things that are universal, then we can have a great hour together," he explains to Rachel. "What I try to do is give people an escape, so I'll be like, 'let's talk about animals.'" What exactly does he say about animals? It walks the line, so you'll have to

Sandra Oh vs. Anne Heche in the UK trailer and poster for Catfight

Ahead of its release next month, a new UK poster and trailer have arrived online for writer-director Onur Tukel’s upcoming action comedy Catfight which stars Sandra Oh and Anne Heche; check them out here…

In this action comedy, two former college friends, who now find themselves in very different walks of life, meet up at a fancy cocktail party: Veronica (Sandra Oh) has become the entitled, wine-loving wife of a rich businessman, while Ashley (Anne Heche), along with her lover Lisa (Alicia Silverstone), struggles to make ends meet as an artist. As the two women reconnect, long-buried hostilities, jealousy, and anger explode into a vicious, bloody fight that leaves both of them battered and bruised – and ready for more.

On top of Oh and Heche, Alicia Silverstone, Dylan Baker, Tituss Burgess, Justin Ahdoot and Jordan Carlos also star. Onur Tukel (Summer of Blood) wrote and directed the film, which

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche duke it out in first trailer for Catfight

Two former college friends, played by Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) and Anne Heche (Hung), engage in a brawl that will consume their lives for years to come in the first trailer for Catfight. Check out the funny and violent trailer here…

Last year, the action comedy emerged out of the Toronto International Film Festival with relatively positive reception from critics; most reviews for the film praised the two lead performances and action scenes but weren’t entirely fond of the film’s more satirical elements.

Larry Wilmore Vows to Return to Late Night: ‘I’m Not Done Yet’

Larry Wilmore Vows to Return to Late Night: ‘I’m Not Done Yet’
Larry Wilmore isn’t letting a little thing like cancellation get him down.

During his last broadcast on Comedy Central Thursday night, the “Nightly Show” host was unbowed, telling viewers he was proud of the work he and his staff of contributors produced in an attempt to feature voices that don’t normally get an airing during late-night television. “As a culture, we’ve all agreed with the opinion that the world should be seen in a certain way. So at ‘The Nightly Show,’ our chief mission was to disagree with that premise, and to see the world in a way that may not make everybody comfortable,” he said. “And to present it with a cast of people who don’t always get to have a voice on that. On that front, I feel we’ve been very successful, and I couldn’t be prouder of what we accomplished.”

Another wee-hours TV veteran appeared to bolster the

‘Sleeping with Other People’ Review

Stars: Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Jordan Carlos, Margarita Levieva, Charles Cain, Adam Brody, Michael Cyril Creighton, Billy Eichner, Jason Mantzoukas, Margaret Odette, Amanda Peet, Victoria Frings, Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne | Written and Directed by Leslye Headland

When it comes to romantic comedies these days you tend to either get the big Hollywood films with big names and often a lack of real connection, or you get the indie ones with lots of talking. Sleeping with Other People finds its place between these styles, with surprising success.

Jake (Jason Sudeikis) is a good-natured man who is a womaniser, and Lainey (Alison Brie) is obsessed with her first love (or at least the one she planned to lose her virginity to). When the two form a platonic relationship to help them deal with their disastrous love lives the signs are all there that an attraction between the two are forming.

Interview: Director Leslye Headland Tries ‘Sleeping with Other People’

Chicago – Leslye Headland is facing the new era head on, by putting a post modern Harry-met-Sally spin on her new film, “Sleeping with Other People.” Her question is how do people connect in the new age of hook-ups and online options? Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie portray the couple trying to answer that question.

Leslye Headland came out of Connecticut, and graduated from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 2002. She worked for four years as an assistant for producer Harvey Weinstein, and first gained notice as a playwright. One of her plays, “Bachelorette” (2012) became her first writing and directing effort in film. She adapted the screenplay for the remake of “About Last Night” in 2014, and premiered “Sleeping with Other People” at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

Everything mentioned from 2008 to 2009 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'
The years 2008 and 2009 really weren’t that long ago. So it seems a bit odd to reflect on Breaking Bad—it just wrapped its final season in September and is an Emmys hopeful this year—or Lady Gaga when they are still relevant today. “Remember when” just doesn’t carry as much meaning here as it does with the earlier episodes in VH1′s I Love the 2000s series.

That being said, the show’s brilliant talking heads brought the last two installments in the series to life. (I certainly wasn’t sorry I spent my Saturday night watching them,

I Just Want My Pants Back: Cancelled, No Season Two

It may be the end of the road for MTV's I Just Want My Pants Back. The cable channel has cancelled the romantic comedy series after one year but the show could live on to see season two.

Based on the book by David J. Rosen, I Just Want My Pants Back revolves around a group of twenty-something hipsters who try to figure out dating and the rest of life in Brooklyn. The cast includes Peter Vack, Elisabeth Hower, Jordan Carlos, Kim Shaw, and Sunkrish Bala. The show was initially developed for NBC.

Pants was previewed back in August 2011 and drew a very healthy 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.13 million total viewers. In retrospect, MTV execs may be wishing that they'd started airing the rest of the season right away.

'I Just Want My Pants Back' finale: What to expect when Jason and Jane reunite

In case there was ever any doubt about the awesomeness of "I Just Want My Pants Back," tonight's Season 1 finale brings out the absolute best in the show. We were laughing out loud by minute three, when Jason (Peter Vack) has a life changing moment -- for real -- while sitting on a toilet.

No, that's not where he encounters his much sought-after fling, Jane. When Jason and Jane do reunite later on, sparks fly -- but things may not end quite as Jason imagined they would. (When do they ever, really?) Elsewhere, Paul is making himself a little too comfortable in Tina's (Kim Shaw) apartment... and in her life. Feeling suffocated, she makes some less-than-ideal choices.

Last week, we saw Eric (Jordan Carlos) grappling with the decision to stay in med school or not. In the finale, Stacey (Elisabeth Hower) -- convinced he's bound for "hobodom" -- stages a

'Pants Back' Cast Teases Blackout, Foursome This Season

Wondering what's next for Jason, Tina and the gang? MTV News got the low-down from the cast.

MTV's new show "I Just Want My Pants Back" immediately sets up a premise: Don't lose your pants to a hot girl after a steamy one-night stand.

Of course, those pants go on to act as a metaphor about a group of twentysomethings who live, love and party in Brooklyn. For the rest of the series, it seems, Jason (Peter Vack's character) is just trying to find that perfect girl, the perfect job and his lost set of trousers.

In fact, all the characters seem to be trying to nail down that special something, whatever it is. And, if you think that what you've seen so far is saucy, from what the "Pants Back" cast tells us,
