Can You Ever Forgive Me Review

“Who’s the master, the painter or the forger?” asked Christian Bale’s Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle as he looked at a fake Rembrandt hanging on the walls of a major museum. Director Marielle Heller’s Can You Ever Forgive Me? asks the same question, albeit from a much less cynical perspective. The film tells the true-life tale of Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy), a writer who began crafting forged letters from dead celebrities when her literary career plummeted. As Lee buries herself deeper into a pit of deception, Heller finds both entertainment and involving drama.

Happytime Murders Red Band Trailer

Since the first red band trailer exploded on the big screen before Deadpool 2 earlier this summer, we haven’t seen much more footage from the raunchy puppet comedy The Happytime Murders. However, a new red band trailer has arrived to showcase some more of the inappropriate humor coming in the film from Jim Henson’s son, Brian Henson. The only problem is that most of it just seems to be more footage from the scenes we glimpsed in the first trailer. Read More »

happytime murders

Last October, I visited the set of Brian Henson‘s The Happytime Murders and was shocked and appalled by the puppet naughtiness. Today, I present to you our roundtable interview with human star Melissa McCarthy talked about having “real” moments with puppet characters, working with the Henson Company, wanting to make the movie after reading two pages, navigating a set built for puppets, the social message of the film, hilarious puppet bloopers, and being directed from a guy in a garbage can.

Amy Schumer Hosted Saturday Night Live

Thought not quite as celebrated as the Christmas episode, Saturday Night Live always does something special for Mother’s Day. This time they pulled out pull the stops for the cold open, opting to avoid all of the typical political satire (kind of) and deliver a heartwarming tribute to the cast members’ mothers. In fact, the episode as a whole pretty much steered clear of politics entirely.

As for Amy Schumer, in her second time hosting the comedian was extremely comfortable. This should come as no surprise since Inside Amy Schumer gave her plenty of sketch comedy experience, but unfortunately this time the episode as a whole wasn’t quite as good as her hosting debut. There were still some big laughs to be had, especially when Melissa McCarthy showed up for a surprise cameo. Read More »
