It’s a strange time we live in where two of the non-‘Transformers’ movies released this weekend are considered small indie films, yet one is a romantic comedy (sort of) staring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and the other - 'Snowpiercer' - is an action movie starring the guy who plays Captain America.

Netflix has long since earned its reputation as the patron saint of canceled TV series, owing to its resurrections of both 'Arrested Development' and 'The Killing,' but the latest property pulled from the scrap heap is wet, hot, and altogether unexpected. Might Netflix look to reunite the A-list (and 40+) cast of cult classic 'Wet Hot American Summer' for a prequel TV series?

'SNL' Scorecard: Andy Samberg Brings Back The Old Gang For The Season Finale

The truth is, I don’t particularly enjoy reviewing ‘Saturday Night Live’ – something I’ve done now for four full seasons at three different outlets. Now, I’ve loved the show for my entire life and I love writing about the show, but it’s not easy to be critical of what these people do every week because it really is remarkable what they can pull off in less than one week on live television. (I’ve attended ‘SNL’ twice: Once in 2009 and then again for dress rehearsal last night. Watching the organized chaos that unfolds in person is almost overwhelming.)
The 2013-2014 season is now over and, no, it won’t go down in history as one of the better seasons in ‘SNL’ history. The show has lost too many stars over the past couple of years to recover that quickly, but they will recover. They always do. ‘SNL’ has always leaned heavily on recurring sketches, but what’s weird is how many recurring sketches are in rotation right now that not that many people love. When you think back, there’s always been a ‘Church Lady’ or ‘Wayne’s World’ or ‘Cheerleaders’ or ‘Stefon’ – but now, they don’t have that, and without that it’s been hard to sustain an identity.

On Wednesday evening at the Apple Store in Soho, I hosted a chat with Jon Favreau about his new film, ‘Chef’ (which premiered at SXSW and is playing this week at the Tribeca Film Festival -- opening May 9 in New York and L.A., then expanding on May 16), which is a return for Favreau to his indie roots that began with films like ‘Swingers’ and ‘Made.’

Unsurprisingly, Jimmy Fallon brought along his famous "Lip Sync Battles" when he moved over to host 'The Tonight Show' as Jay Leno's successor. To kick things off with his first installment in his new late-night hour, Fallon challenged 'Anchorman 2' and future 'Ant-Man' star Paul Rudd, and you can watch their battle right here.

If you watched too much 80s TV, you're familiar with 'Bosom Buddies,' the short-lived ABC sitcom that is best known for launching the career of Tom Hanks...and also for it's classic opening credits. To pay homage to that classic opening, Paul Rudd and Adam Scott decided to recreate the entire thing, shot-for-shot, with a little help from some friends.

'Anchorman 2' Review

[This review contains some minor spoilers of 'Anchorman 2.']
There are a handful of extremely funny, laugh-out-loud moments in 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.' One happens early – the reveal that David Koechner now runs a cut-rate fast-food joint that saves money by serving fried bats (or, as he calls it, “chicken of the cave"). Another is a retread from the first film – a battle royale of news teams from various networks, but this time even more extreme. There's also great humor in what I suppose passes for “the point” of this movie – that lowest common denominator attitudes like those of Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy are what inadvertently invented the cesspool of modern cable news.
Of course, what you will find funny is entirely dependent on your own taste, but these highlighted scenes (and several others, I must point out) really landed with me. It struck me later, as I was trying to piece together why the movie felt about six hours long, that these moments were all dependent on gags that could not have been ad-libbed. Ferrell, Koechner, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and the rest of the gang are deservedly respected for their quick-thinking comedy chops. When they get together and riff, few can top them. The problem is that 'Anchorman 2' relies on this far, far too much. It's like a a dessert plate where mounds of fluffy whipped cream obscures the fact that, underneath, there's only a tiny bite of pie.
