‘Moana’ Clip: Dwayne Johnson Is a Hero to All

Moana clip (Maui)

Disney’s Moana is inspired by many things, like the rich mythology of ancient Oceania and the irresistible charisma of Dwayne Johnson. The first Moana clip leans on both, as Maui (Johnson) meets Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) for the first time and teaches her how to make a proper introduction.

The Boss Baby teaser trailer

It’s a familiar joke that the baby is the real head of the household. Family life revolves around the whims of its youngest, most unpredictable member, and all the attention in the room immediately goes to him or her. But what if the baby weren’t just a metaphorical boss? What if the baby were a real boss, with a tiny business suit and a mean coffee addiction and the voice of Alec Baldwin and everything?

That’s the premise of The Boss Baby, the new animated comedy from DreamWorks. Baldwin voices a bratty little baby whose arrival upends the life of his older brother, 7-year-old Tim. Sadly, this is not an adaptation of Beck Bennett’s hilarious “office boss” recurring sketch from Saturday Night Live. Watch the Boss Baby teaser trailer below. Read More »

Daniel Stern Rookie of the Year Video

It doesn’t feel like there are nearly as many sports comedies geared towards kids as there were in the 90s. The decade brought hits such as The Mighty Ducks, The Sandlot, Angels in the Outfield, The Big Green, Space Jam, Cool Runnings and more. But one of my favorites as a child of that time was Rookie of the Year. The movie follows a young Thomas Ian Nicholas (a future American Pie star) as Henry Gardenhoser Henry Rowengartner as an aspiring baseball player who really isn’t all that good at the game. But when a broken arm heals in a way that causes him to pitch insanely fast, he’s recruited by the Chicago Cubs as their new pitcher. Pretty believable, right?

The Chicago Cubs go on to win their division and eventually the World Series, though that last part happens off-camera. Well, it just so happens that the Chicago Cubs are making a run for the championship again in real life as they’re in the Major League Baseball playoffs (they’re even up 2-0 against the San Francisco Giants). They may not have a young kid as their pitcher, but they’re doing pretty well, and Rookie of the Year co-star Daniel Stern (Home Alone) thought this was a good time to bring back his wacky pitching coach character Phil Brickma to maybe help guide the Cubbies to the championship.
