There’s no silence quieter than the one in a movie theater during an bad comedy. At times during Mother’s Day, director Garry Marshall’s newest debasement of a beloved holiday, a hush fell over the theater to rival the quietude at a Benedictine monastery. When the laughter finally came, it’s always at the movie’s expense. This disaster is less deliberately funny than the last movie titled Mother’s Day, and that was a violent horror film.

In what will probably result in a much more amusing film than the last time the two appeared on screen together, Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman are reuniting for a new comedy titled Significant Other. Bateman will direct, produce and co-star in the upcoming film with Aniston, who will also serve as executive producer. Based on the strength of Bateman’s directorial debut, Bad Words, we can at least take comfort knowing that this has to be better than The Switch, right?

NBC’s Friends may have given us one of the last great three-camera sitcoms, but might it have been so successful under the original title, Insomnia Café? Or with Jon Cryer as Chandler? Find an extra capable of working the espresso machine, as the 33rd episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ commandeers the couch at Central Perk for some friendly facts from Friends.

‘Mother’s Day’ Is the Next Holiday Garry Marshall Will Make a Movie About

What is the worst franchise in Hollywood? Transformers? Alvin and the Chipmunks? Underworld? They’re all pretty crummy, but they pale before the abject awfulness of the unnamed franchise Garry Marshall’s been working on for the last couple years, where he takes a holiday everyone loves, cast a bunch of movie stars everyone loves, and puts them in a terrible, terrible movie that everyone hates (but which make a ton of money). First came Valentine’s Day featuring Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, and Jamie Foxx, and it was bad. Then there was New Year’s Day, with Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, and Robert freaking De Niro and it was, somehow, much, much worse. Now Marshall’s reign of calendarian terror will continue with Mother’s Day.

Tina Fey’s Mean Girls was based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabes, by Rosalind Wiseman. And now another one of Wiseman’s books about dealing with mean ladies is getting the big screen treatment: Queen Bee Moms And Kingpin Dads: Dealing With The Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future (whew, that’s a title) is being adapted as Mean Moms, with Jennifer Aniston in a leading role.

The Age of Revivals spurred along by the likes of Netflix’s Fuller House or whatever NBC drags out of the dumpster next has many hopeful that Friends will finally get its oft-discussed reunion. Nope! Co-creator Marta Kauffman bluntly states “reunions suck,” at last putting an end to speculation.

‘She’s Funny That Way’ Trailer: Owen Wilson Screwballs With Imogen Poots

My favorite line in this trailer for ‘She’s Funny That Way,’ the new film by Peter Bogdanovich (and his first in eight years), is “This is all very confusing.” Because it is! It took me two viewings to start to pin it all down. So Owen Wilson plays a theater director, who hires a prostitute (Imogen Poots). She only, uh, “escorts” to pay the bills while she tries to make it as an actress, and then she’s hired to star in Wilson’s new play. And then Will Forte (who, according to Wikipedia, is the play’s writer) falls for Poots, and then Kathryn Hahn is involved as well (Wikipedia, which is never wrong, says she plays Wilson’s wife). So everyone is either working with or sleeping with everyone else. Shenanigans!
