The Nutty Professor (1996)
Her death followed a battle with ovarian cancer and was first reported on the website StarTrek.com. In 2014 and 2015, Yarnall wrote several guest columns for the website about her diagnosis.
Yarnall, a familiar presence in later years on the Star Trek convention and autograph circuit, also has a firm, if small, place in Elvis Presley history: In 1968’s Live a Little, Love a Little, the actress — beautifully decked out in a glittery silver mini-dress and, briefly, a white fur coat — played a party-goer who draws Presley’s single-minded attention. He sings “A Little Less Conversation” to her in perhaps the film’s most memorable scene, a
The trailers and posters for Fat Buddies aren't provided in the English language. But the humor translates well enough. Let's face facts. Farts are hilarious in any language, as the teaser footage proves. We're sure that, as more people 'catch wind' of this action comedy, there will be complains of fat shaming and skinny-washing, since the leads are obviously two fit dudes in fat suits.
Bei-Er Bao is an audacious filmmaker who dares subvert the social media norms of what's executable and what's not. He's trying to remember an antiquated time when
One of those is the locally based Brian Banks, which marks a return to narrative filmmaking by director Tom Shadyac, whose most recent work with the spiritual documentary I Am and whose mosat recent commercial film was 2007’s Evan Almighty. A powerful and inspiring film, Brian Banks is a decided departure for the man whose filmography includes Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty, Dragonfly and Eddie Murphy’s The Nutty Professor. Independently made, Brian Banks stars Aldis Hodge in the title role alog with Greg Kinnear, Sherri Shepherd, Melanie Liburd,
Knott died June 29 in Portland, Oregon, his son, Brian, told The Hollywood Reporter. His death was due to complications from the accident that occurred in 2006 during a visit to Micronesia, when Knott got the bends and became paralyzed from the waist down, he said.
Knott helped build the giant Animal puppet with a 15-foot head that came crashing through a roof after accidentally ingesting one ...

“The professionally offended have decided that even though it’s a movie by women filmmakers, presenting a pro-woman message, it’s does it the wrong way,” Maher said. “Schumer remade ‘The Nutty Professor,’ where someone not thin, and not cool, magically sees themselves as better looking and gains confidence. Except, when Eddie Murphy did it, he didn’t have the Purity Police up his ass.”
“I Feel Pretty” has been accused of promoting unhealthy messages about body image. Some outlets even
“These people have Groundhog Day Syndrome. Every year it’s ‘Let’s hire a comedian to tell jokes! And the day after it’s ‘Why did we hire a comedian to tell jokes?!'”
The Real Time host reminded viewers he had been the comedian at the dinner in 1996. “They were doing the same thing: getting mad at the comedian for telling jokes. They should get a juggler – something non controversial.”
Noting there’ also talk of getting rid of the dinner altogether, Maher cast his vote to instead get rid of that other event White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attends: the daily press briefing. “I heard from people in the press this week they’re just fed up with [her] at this point,

It's newborn and … It's Alive … and murder is what it knows best! A proud couple's bundle of joy is really a newborn terror in filmmaker Larry Cohen's cautionary cult hit that tapped into environmental fears. The horror grows when multiple child monsters rampage in the first sequel It Lives Again as two brave parents try to stop

The first time I saw Jerry Lewis, it was on television with his partner Dean Martin. This was in the late 40s when TV was just beginning – the medium was new and so were Martin and Lewis. We were used to comedy “teams” such as Abbott and Costello, the straight man who fed the lines to the comedian, which grew out of vaudeville. Martin and Lewis took it all to another level. Martin himself was funny, and he was also smooth, romantic, and he sang. They got into a groove and Lewis would take off into pure anarchy. Pretty soon, they were stars of the big screen as well – they started in the My Friend Irma pictures and then they

When the gawky 19 year-old Lewis met the suave singer Dean Martin in 1946, little did they know that they would become the most popular act in America for several years, and make 16 films together between 1949 through 1956. Their box office draw was white-hot, so much so that neither of them could keep up with the blur of what happened to them. “Martin & Lewis” eventually broke up at the height of their fame in 1956, during which Martin famously said, “Jer, when I look at you,
For the inquisitive Jerry fan, Shawn Levy’s 1997 King of Comedy: The Life and Art of Jerry Lewis, remains the first and last stop for the straight scoop on America’s premiere nudnik. Levy, who endured the full fury of the comedian’s legendary wrath to get his story, is as admiring of his subject’s accomplishments as he was repelled by his whiplash mood swings. The hard knock apprenticeship in the Catskills, the Freudian-fueled soap opera of his partnership with Dean Martin, the boastful sex-capades, they’re all there and then some.
With the saddening news of Jerry Lewis departing us a few days ago, it bought to mind not only his fine cinematic outputs as a leading comedic star in the 50’s and 60’s (including classics such as The Nutty Professor and The Bellboy) but also his role in the oft overlooked Martin Scorsese classic, The King of Comedy. Often cast along with Dean Martin in his earlier career, Lewis would later step out of Martin’s shadow and forge a career as a leading man. Though as many will know, as his popularity in the Us waned, he picked up more fans in Europe (particularly France). His brand of physical clowning translated well across the world. In fact his films would later become popular across Asia too given his visual comedy was universally appreciated.
Whilst Lewis may
Featuring canonical classics such as Some Like It Hot, Dr. Strangelove, Annie Hall, Duck Soup, Playtime, and more in the top 10, there’s some interesting observations looking at the rest of the list. Toni Erdmann is the most recent inclusion, while the highest Wes Anderson pick is The Royal Tenenbaums. There’s also a healthy dose of Chaplin and Lubitsch with four films each, and the recently departed Jerry Lewis has a pair of inclusions.
Check out the list below (and my ballot) and see more on their official site.
