The Meet the Parents Cast Reunited to Talk Milking Cats and Another Possible Sequel

The Meet the Parents Cast Reunited to Talk Milking Cats and Another Possible Sequel
It's been exactly two decades since Meet the Parents first graced the silver screen, so the cast reunited to celebrate the big anniversary and take a nostalgic walk down memory lane. Hoda Kotb wrangled Robert De Niro (Jack Byrnes), Ben Stiller (Greg Focker), Teri Polo (Pamela Byrnes), Blythe Danner (Dina Byrnes), and director Jay Roach for a joint virtual interview on the Today show, and it felt like they were gathered around that dinner table listening to Greg's cringe-worthy dinner prayer all over again. After discussing the film's staying power through the years, the group reminisced about some of their favorite scenes, including the bit when Greg claims to have milked a cat growing up. This prompted De Niro to toss out a shortened version of his character's famous response: "You wanna milk me, too?"

Some interesting revelations were shared during the reunion, like the fact that Jim Carrey is

Film Review: Senior Moment! On-Air Review of ‘The War with Grandpa’

Film Review: Senior Moment! On-Air Review of ‘The War with Grandpa’
Chicago – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on Wbgr-fm on October 8th, 2020, reviewing the new live action film “The War with Grandpa,” featuring Robert De Niro.

Rob Riggle Doesn't Think Robert De Niro Gets Enough Credit for His Comedy Chops

Rob Riggle Doesn't Think Robert De Niro Gets Enough Credit for His Comedy Chops
The evolution, or rather de-evolution of Robert De Niro's acting career has been the subject of countless internet think pieces. After working with Martin Scorsese on some of the greatest dramas ever made, De Niro has chosen to devote the latter half of his career to one comedy after another. But despite his film choices, the actor's skills have never been in question, and his The War with Grandpa co-star Rob Riggles recently told explained that De Niro's comic stylings do not get enough credit.

"The good thing is that they're all professionals. De Niro doesn't get enough credit for his comedy chops. He knows what's funny and he knows why it's funny, so he knows how to play that. He's not afraid to look foolish. Comedy, you gotta be willing to look foolish. If you're not willing to look foolish, that's a hard sell. That's why they say comedy's hard.

New York Film Festival 2020: Alternating Currents

New York Film Festival 2020: Alternating Currents
Given the complicated situation with film festivals this year, there were obviously a lot of films from 2020 that might have potentially fallen through the cracks. They might have premiered at Rotterdam or Berlin, only to vanish without a trace. Or they could have simply remained on their maker’s hard drive, waiting for next year’s round of submissions, when they’d be competing with a new spate of other films. In light of this, the New York Film Festival is providing a public service with its rather swollen Currents lineup. Without inclusion in this year’s NYFF, many of these films would not receive another high profile screening, and this has consequences for future programming slots, distribution, as well as simply getting seen by viewers like you. Going forward, it’s unlikely that the Currents section will be so sprawling. After all, selectivity is NYFF’s brand.Having said that,

Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Borat’ Sequel Acquired by Amazon Studios

  • The Wrap
Sacha Baron Cohen’s ‘Borat’ Sequel Acquired by Amazon Studios
Amazon Studios has acquired the “Borat” sequel and will debut it late October before Election Day on Amazon Prime, an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.

It was recently reported that actor/comedian Sacha Baron Cohen shot “Borat 2” during the coronavirus lockdown and that the film was being screened for Hollywood executives.

2006’s “Borat,” which was nominated for best adapted screenplay at the 2007 Academy Awards, grossed $262.6 million worldwide on an $18 million production budget.

The satirical film follows fictional Kazakhstan TV talking head Borat (Baron Cohen) who is dispatched to the U.S. with a documentary crew in tow to report on “the greatest country in the world.”

The film was directed by Larry Charles, and paved the way for Baron Cohen to do other films including “Bruno” ($138 million) and “The Dictator” ($179 million), though neither garnered the same level of response or box office success.

Baron Cohen produced “Borat” alongside Jay Roach.

A Sex Scandal Ended Ron Meyer’s Career, but His Old Hollywood Is in Rapid Retreat

A Sex Scandal Ended Ron Meyer’s Career, but His Old Hollywood Is in Rapid Retreat
On August 18, Ron Meyer was forced to resign his chairmanship at Universal Studios in the face of a sexual liaison come to light. As a longtime executive admitting that he paid off a mistress in order to prevent his company from facing embarrassment, it’s hard to imagine who would call him a victim of cancel culture. However unwittingly, he is part of a cultural revolution in Hollywood, one that is seeing the new Hollywood order push aside the old. Expect more veterans to be put out to pasture, victims of their fat paychecks, limited viability, or in the cases of Meyer and respected Warner Bros. studio head Kevin Tsujihara, the lure of the same femme fatale.

Dallying with Charlotte Kirk cost both 25-year studio executives their jobs, after each admitted to having consensual affairs with the British actress, who was trying to leverage a Hollywood career. Like WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey before him,

Issa Rae, Bette Midler Reckon With the ‘New Normal’ in ‘Coastal Elites’ Trailer
HBO has released the first glimpse of Coastal Elites, a “socially distanced satire” created during and focused on the Covid-19 pandemic.

The film stars Sarah Paulson, Bette Midler, Issa Rae, Kaitlyn Dever and Dan Levy as the so-called “coastal elites,” each living in New York or Los Angeles in isolation during the pandemic. Shot remotely, Coastal Elites appears to be made up largely of confessional segments in which the characters discuss their concerns and fears regarding this “new normal.” Granted, Covid isn’t the only subject at play — there are plenty of references to Trump,

The War with Grandpa Trailer Has Robert De Niro Battling Pint-Size Pranksters

The War with Grandpa Trailer Has Robert De Niro Battling Pint-Size Pranksters
The first trailer for The War with Grandpa is here. 101 Studios scooped up the rights to the movie back in June in a deal with Brookdale Studios. They intend to give Robert De Niro's latest a theatrical release this fall, making it one of the early wide-release movies to help theaters potentially draw in audiences after the months-long shutdown. In this case, De Niro is exercising his comedy chops in a family-friendly comedy that pits the legendary actor against a grade-schooler.

We start off with Robert De Niro struggling with a self-checkout machine at the grocery store, which leads to some trouble. To keep him out of trouble, his daughter offers to let him stay at her home with the rest of his family. Unfortunately, his grandson has to give up his room. This is the genesis of the war promised by the title. The two end up

10 Scene-Stealing Cats in Movies, From ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ to ‘Captain Marvel’ (Photos)

10 Scene-Stealing Cats in Movies, From ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ to ‘Captain Marvel’ (Photos)
Goose, “Captain Marvel” (2019)

Okay, Goose is technically not a cat. Carol Danvers’ orange sidekick is actually a flerken (an alien with massive tentacles hidden inside her mouth), but Goose’s fluffy coat and knack for getting into trouble puts her firmly in the cat category.

Binx, “Hocus Pocus” (1993)

Thackery Binx was just a normal teenage boy in 1693 before he was cursed to live forever in the body of a black cat. But hey, everyone goes through weird phases in their teens.

Cat, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961)

Let’s make this clear: Holly Golightly does not own this cat. He belongs to nobody and nobody belongs to him. But that doesn’t stop him from playing a pivotal role in the movie, including the tear-jerking final scene.

Jonesy, “Alien” (1979)

This orange tabby was the unofficial mascot of the Uscss Nostromo and one of the few crew members to survive a Xenomorph attack.
