Not to be outdone by HBO's announcement of a standalone streaming service (although totally outdone by Warner Bros.' DC slate), Netflix has picked up a few 'Friends' of its own, 236 to be exact. The streaming service confirms today that all episodes of Monica, Chandler, Joe, Rachel, Phoebe and Ross will be ready to watch in time for New Years' 2015, as announced by Gunther and the Rembrandts.
Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Wiig and Jennifer Aniston - three big name female actresses - all had new movies at the Toronto International Film Festival and each performance indicates a bold new direction for each of them.
Like anyone who lived through the '90s, Jimmy Kimmel loved 'Friends,' but while being a fan of the television staple is wholly understandable, the depth of his affection is, well, perhaps not. Kimmel hosted 'Friends' star Jennifer Aniston on his show last night, and while she might have expected to chat about her latest movie, 'Life of Crime,' and share some fun tidbits and anecdotes, the host had other ideas.
Quick question: what were you doing last night? Were you on 'Chelsea Lately' to celebrate Chelsea Handler's final show? No? Are you sure? Because everyone was there.
Remember Quentin Tarantino's 'Jackie Brown,' in which Pam Grir plays a flight attendant wrapped up in a scheme to smuggle drugs into the US? Well, what were two of those scheming bad guys, the ones played by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro, like when they were younger? What kind of shenanigans would they get themselves into? 'Life of Crime' tries to answer that question, and the first trailer is full of laughs and semi-failed schemes.
'We're the Millers 2' seemed like a given, since the first one starring Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts and Will Poulter did so well at the box office, but New Line only now took the first step into making this happen -- getting a script together. That's where Adam Sztykiel steps in.
'We're the Millers' is a vexing film. It's just funny enough to keep from being truly bad, but too preposterous and predictable to be anything close to good. For every laugh there's something that will make you want to hurl an object at the screen. When it flubs, it flubs hard, allowing each of the four main characters a chance to embarrass themselves. And yet, if you wait 'til the next scene, there's the possibility that whoever just served up a would-be joke in a humiliating fashion will do something inspired. As such, 'We're the Millers' wins some respect for at least being a very odd moviegoing experience.
A small-time pot dealer attempts to clear his debts by smuggling a large amount of drugs across the US-Mexico border under the guise of a fake family vacation.
Understandably, 2013 has become a banner year for TV reunion in that 'Arrested Development' will finally dish out Netflix's revival season on May 26, while even the dormant 'Veronica Mars' got its act together for a fan-funded feature film, but the latest rumors have little merit, despite their long reach. Sources lacking credibility yesterday spread news of a 'Friends' reunion season, but despite the rumor's prevalence, no such thing will likely ever take place. Find out why inside!
