Jon Stewart said goodbye to The Daily Show last night in equal parts star-studded and quiet, personal fashion as former correspondents like Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, John Oliver and Olivia Munn returned to pay their respects, while Bruce Springsteen closed out the slow with a performance — at Stewart’s request — of his 1999 song “The Land of Hopes and Dreams” and, for his fellow New Jerseyan, “Born to Run”.

‘Vacation’ Review: This Sad Sequel Truly Is a Road Trip from Hell

Full disclosure: I missed the last 10 minutes of Vacation. Last night’s press screening started 20 minutes late, then began without any sound, which lead to a 10 minute delay to correct the technical difficulties. With an unbreakable engagement elsewhere, I had to sneak out right before the very last scene. So take this review with as many grains of salt as you’d like. If you think those final minutes might recontextualize everything that came before to transform a generally miserable comedy into a beacon of transcendent hilarity, so be it. Having sat through the previous 90 minutes, I’m of the opinion that nothing short of the long-lost missing footage from Orson Welles’ Magnificent Ambersons could have redeemed this dreadful film.

‘Vacation’ Red-Band Trailer: Meet the New Generation of Griswolds

They are sequels and there are remakes and there is the new Vacation, which manages to somehow be both of those things at the same time. It’s a sequel in that it follows the grown-up Rusty (Ed Helms) and his new family, but it’s a remake because it, once again, tracks the Griswold clan as they embark on a cross-country road trip to visit Walley World. And while the original film had its fair share of off-color jokes, the mere existence of this new red band trailer is all the evidence you need that this remaquel will push the boundaries of the R-rating.

What at first seemed like a silly idea for a reboot/sequel has already proven itself as incredibly promising with just a couple of trailers — a new trailer for Vacation has arrived, and it’s just as funny as the previous ones (although it features less of Chris Hemsworth’s, um, area). A new generation of Griswolds hit the road for Walley World, and the results appear to be even more disastrous than the original gang’s vacation attempts.

The new Vacation may bear the same name as the old Vacation, but it’s actually a sequel, taking place a few decades after the first ill-fated Griswold family trip to Walley World. The first trailer for this new version has arrived and while it has the same title and premise as its predecessor, it bends over backwards to let you know that Ed Helms is the same Rusty Griswold from 32 years ago, all grown up. Can we call this a rebootquel?

David Zucker Says ‘The Naked Gun’ Remake ‘Won’t Be Like’ the Original

They’re making a new version of The Naked Gun, because they’re making a new version of every old movie. And they’re making this one with Ed Helms, because Ed Helms starred in some of the biggest comedies of all time, including The Hangover (and he’s already remaking, or at least updating, National Lampoon’s Vacation). But according to David Zucker, the director of the original Naked Gun, the new film “won’t be like” the old one, because ... honestly, I have no earthly idea.

'Stretch' has gone through a bit of a rough period. The film, directed by Joe Carnahan and produced by Jason Blum, was originally set for a theatrical premiere back in March, but Universal Studios decided to drop it from its release slate, choosing to utilize other creative methods. Now, with an Amazon and iTunes release on October 7, and a VOD release on October 14, the first 'Stetch' trailer has debuted online.

Anyone visiting CollegeHumor within the past few years would no doubt find themselves aware of the long-running 'Jake & Amir, making it all the more puzzling this took so long. Comic duo Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld will take their oddball comedy to TBS with their own series based on the sketch, to be executive produced by 'Hangover' vet and future 'Naked Gun' star Ed Helms.

'The Naked Gun' Returns With Ed Helms in the Lead

Paramount/Warner Bros.
Ed Helms is slowly but surely turning into the face of rebooted films from the '80s. The 'Hangover' star has already signed up to lead a new reboot of 'National Lampoon's Vacation,' and now he's decided to step into the shoes of the late Leslie Nielsen to headline a 'Naked Gun' reboot for Paramount.
As Nielsen remarked in the original 'Naked Gun,' "it's like eating a spoonful of Drano; sure, it’ll clean you out, but it’ll leave you hollow inside." Of course, he was referring to cops getting involved with women, but the intense imagery applies here, as well.

Adult Swim's 'Childrens Hospital' spinoff (if it can even so be called) 'NTSF: SD: SUV::' will soon premiere its third season on Adult Swim beginning July 25, and as per usual the show has recruited a number of impressive guest stars for the short-form action thriller. Not only will 'The Hangover Part III' star Ed Helms show up to reprise an earlier role he'd played on the series (with a new twist), but so too will 'Arrested Development' star Alia Shawkat and '30 Rock' vet Jack McBrayer join the cast!
