Written by Raphael Hayes, Norman Maurer

Directed by Sidney Salkow, Edward Bernds, Norman Maurer

A frenetic mix of baggy-pants vaudeville and the Spanish Inquisition, the eye-poking exploits of The Three Stooges have appalled faint-hearted sophisticates and overprotective mothers for close to a century.

The team’s lowdown influence still lingers – not in the brutal roughhousing demonstrated by the lads in their most frantic moments but in their low class assault on upper class sensibilities – from the semen-sculpted hair-do of the Farrelly Brothers’s There’s Something About Mary to Johnny Knoxville’s Jackass to the mortifying contagion of diarrhea suffered by Paul Feig’s Bridesmaids, the Stooge abides.

And then there’s the Farrelly’s ode to brainlessness,

Quote of the Day: Melissa McCarthy Talks Negotiating and Equal Pay

McCarthy in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

Melissa McCarthy is known for her sense of humor, but her business savvy has also played a major part in landing her among the world’s highest-paid actresses. In a candid conversation with Glamour, the Oscar-nominated actress spoke about how she went from being a “farm girl in Illinois” racking up credit card debt to one of Hollywood’s biggest earners.

“There were some jobs when I was paid what most [of my co-stars were]. And then people who climbed the ladder with me were suddenly making 15 times what I made. I was like, ‘Wait, wait, wait.’ I thought, ‘This is based on bullshit. This is not based on anything factual to me,’” the “Ghostbusters” star told the mag. “I hated that feeling of not being in control and not being able to do anything about it. I think that feeling is what keeps the fight in me.

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ woos Emmy voters at Fyc showcase at Hollywood Athletic Club

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ woos Emmy voters at Fyc showcase at Hollywood Athletic Club
Female empowerment and the #MeToo movement were top of mind at a Q&A panel for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” held Saturday at the Hollywood Athletic Club. Stars Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Borstein, Michael Zegen, Marin Hinkle, and Tony Shalhoub joined creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino for a panel discussion moderated by director Paul Feig.

The comedy series centers on a 1950s housewife (Brosnahan) who becomes a stand-up comedian after her husband (Zegen) runs off with his secretary. Sherman-Palladino revealed that she wanted to explore what would happen when “a woman who really has a specific place and a specific role to play decides to break out of that role and go against the time.”

The male-dominated world of stand-up comedy — which Sherman-Palladino learned about firsthand from her father, the late comedian Don Sherman — felt like the perfect arena for her convention-bucking heroine. “If you’re going to

Lynda Carter Is in Active Talks for Wonder Woman 2

Lynda Carter Is in Active Talks for Wonder Woman 2
Will Lynda Carter actually appear in Wonder Woman 2? The ball is totally in director Patty Jenkins' court, but the discussions have been happening. Carter originally portrayed the iconic DC hero on the Wonder Woman TV series in the 70s, decades before Gal Gadot would appear in the record-breaking, live-action movie. Fans really want to see her at least make a cameo, if not in a more significant role and it sounds like that may well happen, if all goes well.

The 66-year-old actress, who a little while back got a sorely-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, recently appeared on an episode of Today. During the course of the conversation, talk turned to Wonder Woman 2. Lynda Carter discussed her possible inclusion, confirming that talks have been happening between her and Patty Jenkins, but that nothing is set just yet. Here's what she had to say about it.

Emmys: Laura Linney (‘Ozark’) is a dark horse in Best Drama Actress

Emmys: Laura Linney (‘Ozark’) is a dark horse in Best Drama Actress
When it comes to Emmy favorites, few top Laura Linney. She may not be the most awarded performer (yet), but she has one of the best winning percentages, having converted four of her five nominations into hardware. So you definitely shouldn’t completely discount her for a fifth win this year.

Linney is currently in the sixth and final Best Drama Actress slot in our predictions for “Ozark.” She received a surprise SAG nomination, putting her in good stead for an Emmy run, not to mention the fact that she’s a widely respected star across all mediums. And while not a wild hit, the Netflix series has also been low-key embraced, nabbing Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her co-star Jason Bateman and a Writers Guild Award nomination for Best New Series.

Melissa McCarthy is heading another action comedy. The “Ghostbusters” star will topline and produce New Line’s “Super-Intelligence,” The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Slated to begin production in July, the project sees the Oscar nominee playing Carol Peters, a former corporate exec whose life changes overnight when she’s “selected for observation by the world’s first super-intelligence — an artificial intelligence that may or may not take over the world.”

The two-time Emmy winner is re-teaming with her husband and frequent collaborator Ben Falcone on “Super-Intelligence.” He’ll direct the pic and produce alongside her via their On the Day banner.

How Kay Cannon Shattered a Glass Ceiling by Directing ‘Blockers’

How Kay Cannon Shattered a Glass Ceiling by Directing ‘Blockers’
Kay Cannon’s “Blockers” scored big at the weekend box office with $21.4 million. The R-rated comedy is like “Bridesmaids” meets “American Pie,” with a script that follows a group of three high school seniors (played by Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan and Gideon Adlon) who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. When their parents (Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz and John Cena) find out about the scheme, they try to foil it.

Blockers” follows in the tradition of Judd Apatow’s “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and “Trainwreck,” as an R-rated comedy that takes no prisoners. But in Hollywood, for the most part, these films are typically made by men. Cannon, a first-time director who produced “Pitch Perfect” and wrote for “30 Rock,” is shattering a glass ceiling by proving female directors can join that club. She spoke to Variety about the film, how it plays in the Time’s

New to Streaming: ‘The Commuter,’ ‘Lover for a Day,’ ‘The Post,’ ‘The Florida Project,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Commuter (Jaume Collet-Serra)

In the world of Hollywood where “action” is often synonymous with CGI-heavy monstrosities splattered across the screen backed by an assaultive sound design, the blissful visual coherence and immaculately-constructed thrills in the films of Jaume Collet-Serra can feel like the third coming of Alfred Hitchcock (after Brian De Palma, of course). Following a trio of films led by Liam Neeson, he shortened his scope

‘Blockers’ Director Kay Cannon on Making Raunchy Teen Comedies From a Female’s Perspective
“Blockers” director Kay Cannon admitted Tuesday night at the Universal film’s premiere that she’s enjoying the increased attention being paid in Hollywood to the female point of view.

“Luckily for me in a way, it’s been very beneficial,” she said on the red carpet at the Regency Village in Los Angeles. “Hopefully, if the movie does well, it’ll shine a light to say women can direct all sorts of things.”

As Cameron Diaz Announces Her Retirement, Her Contributions to Women in Comedy Can’t Be Overstated

As Cameron Diaz Announces Her Retirement, Her Contributions to Women in Comedy Can’t Be Overstated
Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

Consider it official: Cameron Diaz is, in her own words, “actually retired.” The actress’ “Sweetest Thing” co-star Selma Blair made waves earlier this month when she tweeted that her pal had retired from the acting business, a note she later retracted, only for it to be confirmed by Diaz when the actresses (alongside fellow “Sweetest Thing” star Christina Applegate) reunited to chat about their raunchy 2002 feature. Diaz out.

Asked by Entertainment Weekly if the trio has reunited since filming the feature, the actresses were honest: No, but maybe they should. It also gave Diaz the chance to set the record straight on her retirement status, as she chimed in after Applegate joked that she was “semi-retired,” saying, “I’m totally down. I’m semi-retired, too, and I am actually retired, so I would love to see you ladies.

‘Blockers,’ ‘A Quiet Place’ Bet SXSW Buzz Equals Big Box Office

‘Blockers,’ ‘A Quiet Place’ Bet SXSW Buzz Equals Big Box Office
Blockers” and “A Quiet Place” are both hoping to leverage film festival raves into box office success when they open in theaters next month.

On paper, the two films couldn’t be more different. “Blockers,” is a bawdy R-rated comedy about a group of high school girls’ efforts to lose their virginity on prom night. Think of it as a feminist spin on “Superbad.”

In contrast, “A Quiet Place” is a brutal thriller about a dystopian future in which arthropod-like monsters hunt humans using their superior sense of sound. It also functions as a meditation on parenthood and paranoia.

Despite their stylistic differences and divergent subject matters, the two movies share more than just a common release date of April 6. They’re trying to prove that audiences will come out for a movie that isn’t “Black Panther.” So far this winter, that’s the only film that’s really

Gone are the days where you would have to trundle down to the local amusement arcade or if you had more cash to splash, book a flight to Las Vegas or Atlantic City to get the full buzz of the casino world.
