If you don’t love Almost Famous as much as most of the staff of /Film does, then you might not know that the original title for the film was Untitled. If you watch “The Bootleg Cut” (or director’s cut) that was released on DVD back in 2001 and re-released on Blu-ray in 2011, you’ll see the real title appear, as it was preferred by director Cameron Crowe (who is the one doing the handwritten opening credits as well).
Before the title Almost Famous was settled upon, there was a time when Cameron Crowe was trying to figure out what else he could call the movie, since Untitled was not the most desirable name for the studio to sell. One person who tried to help Cameron Crowe figure out a satisfying alternate title was supporting star Jimmy Fallon, and the director recently revealed the full list of options he was presented with by the man who would go on to host The Tonight Show.

Last night, Saturday Night Live went live coast-to-coast for the first time in the show’s 42-year history with host Jimmy Fallon. The late night sketch series seems anxious to capitalize on all the buzz their political satire has been getting lately with all the Donald Trump presidency fueling the writers room for a couple sketches each week, and they want everyone to experience the show at the same time rather than having half the country on a tape delay.
Though last night’s episode did offer some amusing moments lampooning the headlines that came from the White House this week, SNL was strongest with their non-political sketches, and that’s despite the fact that both Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy returned as Donald Trump and Sean Spicer respectively. In fact, the best sketch mocked another headline-making even that had nothing to do with politics at all.

Saturday Night Live only has four episodes left before season 42 is in the books, and the sketch comedy series is going out with a bang in a couple different ways. Not only will SNL end the season with four all-star hosts, but all of the remaining episodes will be broadcast live across the country at the same time for the first time in the show’s history.
Find out about the plan to have Saturday Night Live airing live across the country and who the final hosts of the season will be below. Read More »
Last night, Hollywood got drunk as hell and received Golden Globes from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. You can get the full list of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards winners right here, but if you missed the ceremony last night, then you missed out on a rather delightful opening musical number led by ceremony host Jimmy Fallon.
Inspired by several of the musical sequences from La La Land, the opening number features Jimmy Fallon and a long line of Hollywood’s finest singing and dancing through all the big movies and TV shows of 2016. And for all you Stranger Things fans out there, you’ll be happy to see one of your favorite characters make a surprise comeback.

Sing is the latest animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment, and it’s in theaters now. If somehow after the onslaught of musically charged TV spots that have been all over the place this holiday season you weren’t aware of that, here’s another reminder.
The voice cast of Sing (including Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane and Tori Kelly) appeared on The Tonight Show to perform an a cappella version of Paul McCartney‘s signature holiday tune “Wonderful Christmastime” with the help of Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Oh, and the former member of The Beatles popped up to help out too.

Universal Studios‘ greatest gift may also be its greatest curse. While Disney theme parks move at a notoriously slow pace, Universal creative is constantly on the ball, updating their parks and adding new attractions and viewing almost nothing as a sacred cow. The result: parks that are constantly evolving, pushing the envelope, and giving visitors something new to experience, like the warmly received Skull Island: Reign of Kong. It also means attractions like the upcoming Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon, a ride concept that feels like the result of accountants and market testing more than anything else.
And yet, here I am, eagerly looking at the new details Universal has released about their new Jimmy Fallon ride. Because even when the subject matter isn’t my cup of tea, a new Universal Studios ride always has my attention.

Stranger Things creators Matt and Ross Duffer were promising “justice for Barb” in season two before Netflix even got around to confirming there’d be a season two. But it looks like Jimmy Fallon beat the Duffers to the punch. In a Tonight Show parody, Barb returns to the Wheelers’ basement to give Mike, Eleven, and the rest of the gang a piece of her mind. Turns out she’s none too pleased about how things went down last season.
Watch the Jimmy Fallon Stranger Things parody below. Be warned there are MAJOR SPOILERS ahead for season one. Read More »
Some people wonder why Saturday Night Live is still a program that is put together in just a week when the comedy that comes from the show can be so hit or miss. For superfans of the show like myself, that’s actually one of the most exciting aspects of the show. It’s impressive to see what this talented group of people can put together in such a short amount of time, and no one makes show like this anywhere else on television.
Another fun element of the live aspect of the show is that anything can happen while it’s on the air, and that includes cast members “breaking” in the middle of a scene. Sometimes the SNL cast members just can’t help but laugh at themselves or their co-stars and they break the reality of the scene. Usually it just results in the sketch getting funnier, and the audience always loves to see it happen. Now you can relive some of the best moments of breaking from SNL with a couple supercuts spanning decades of sketches. Read More »
