The shocking twist atop the final outing of NBC’s Kristen Bell-Ted Danson comedy The Good Place demanded a second season, and NBC isn’t about to argue. The new series from the minds behind Parks and Recreation and The Office officially has its second season order in place, and it’s a good one.
A little less than a week ago, the internet got an eyeful of the trailer for the upcoming remake of seminal ’70s buddy cop program CHiPS. The response was, to put it diplomatically, varied — many groaned at the film’s decision to trot out hoary gay-panic gags, disappointed to learn that Hollywood has not left the whole “two heterosexual men frightened of each other’s bodies” schtick behind. Others, such as star Dax Shepard’s wife Kristen Bell (a skilled comedic actress in her own right, portraying Shepard’s wife in the film), presumably told him it looked real good and she couldn't wait to buy a ticket. One person has been surprisingly vocal in his distaste for the film, however.
You tilted your head to the side and went, “Huh,” when you first heard about it. You said to yourself, “Oh yeah, I’d forgotten about that,” when you saw casting news about it. Now, you can see it for yourself — or, at least, two minutes and forty-two seconds of it: Dax Shepard’s CHiPs movie remake finally has its very first trailer.
They’re moms, they’re bad, and they’re back. Or they will be next Christmas, as STX has announced via press release they’re fast-tracking a holiday-themed sequel that will reunite Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn for A Bad Moms Christmas.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
Bad Moms looks like something akin to The Hangover but, you know, for moms. It's a fair comparison, since the new comedy was written by the guys who brought you The Hangover. In keeping with the good mom / bad mom theme, STX has released green and red band trailers — just in case you feel like Kathryn Hahn's declaration of "I say we go punch that chick right in the t—" is a little too NSFW for your delicate sensibilities. Whatever it is, Bad Moms is definitely not for kids.
Sometimes, a movie’s premise sounds like maybe a little bit it’s been completely structured around an outmoded cultural stereotype. But also sometimes, this same movie is being made by people who have proven themselves intelligent and funny and...
There’s a scene in The Boss where Melissa McCarthy’s character, a disgraced business mogul named Michelle Darnell, tries to rebuild her financial empire by going to a country club to woo potential investors. Her pitch goes badly, from both a practical perspective and a comedic one. Not realizing one of the investors’ wives is dead, she mocks her and calls her terrible names, and basically makes a fool out of herself. None of this is funny. The conversation goes on and on, fumbling for some kind of ending, until Michelle excuses herself and then suddenly and randomly falls down a flight of stairs. End of scene.
Disney took for-ev-er to announce a sequel to their wildly successful animated film Frozen. Since the film’s release in 2013, the studio has released one animated short, and announced plans for another along with a Broadway musical adaptation. It wasn’t until late last year that Disney officially confirmed plans for Frozen 2, and while we still don’t know exactly when we’ll get to see it, Kristen Bell reveals that production is beginning very, very, very soon.
If you weren’t quite sure what to make of The Boss after that green band trailer debuted, then maybe this new red band trailer will give you a better of idea of what Melissa McCarthy & Co. are up to in her latest comedy. Like the underwhelming Tammy before it, The Boss was also written by McCarthy and her husband, Ben Falcone, and while that has us feeling a bit skeptical, there’s something that feels more lively about this film — or maybe it’s just all that profanity.
