Every now and then, we’ll see a new movie based on characters from the sketches of Saturday Night Live. We got MacGruber in 2010, and before that it was The Ladies Man in 2000. So here we are in a new decade, and it’s about time we had another SNL movie. Though there’s nothing official coming from the late night sketch show, the new comedy Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar starring Kristen Wiig and Bridesmaids co-writer Annie Mumolo feels like an SNL movie that escaped from another dimension, and I think I’m totally on board for it.

This past weekend brought the final episode in the 42nd season of Saturday Night Live. The show was hosted by Dwayne Johnson, and while it was a solid collection of sketches, it didn’t feel like it quite had the pomp and circumstance that usually comes with the show’s season finales. But it was the last episode for a few cast members.
We already knew that Bobby Moynihan was leaving Saturday Night Live thanks to his new sitcom getting picked up for the upcoming 2017-2018 television season at CBS. But before the new episode of SNL aired this past weekend, it was revealed that Vanessa Bayer was also leaving the show. Then on Sunday, Sasheer Zamata became the third cast member to leave the sketch series.
We’ll have more on Sasheer Zamata’s exit from the series a little later today, but for now watch the Saturday Night Live goodbye to Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer after the jump. Read More »
This past weekend the 42nd season finale of Saturday Night Live arrived with host Dwayne Johnson joining the Five Timers Club, just like Melissa McCarthy did last week. Not only did Johnson get his honorary jacket, but he was joined by fellow Five Timers Club members Alec Baldwin and Tom Hanks, and he picked one of them to be his running mate when announcing his candidacy for president in 2020.

Welcome the museum of American Independent Film. Have you been here before? Oh, good! Then you know that the Middle-Aged Sad Sack Comedian wing is to the left and the Quirky New York Girl Learns How To Break Out Of Her Shell wing is to the right. May I recommend a visit to the latter? There’s a new exhibit on display: the trailer for Carrie Pilby, which features Diary of a Teenage Girl star Bel Powley as a hyper-intelligent, neurotic young woman who learns how to navigate life and love in the Big Apple.

While many are looking ahead a couple weeks to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in just two weeks, some may be looking forward to getting absolutey crazy with a raunchy, R-rated holiday comedy, and Office Christmas Party will try to come through next week.
A new trailer for the comedy from Blades of Glory directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck has just arrived, and while it shows more of the party shenanigans that happen in an office in downtown Chicago, it also shows more of the outside happenings, including Jennifer Aniston assaulting some guy, and Karan Soni (the cab driver from Deadpool) trying to get a hooker from Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street).

With December just around the corner, it’s time for your office to start planning their annual office party, but I can almost guarantee that yours won’t be quite as epic as the festivities that will unfold in Office Christmas Party.
The new R-rated holiday comedy is coming to theaters next week, and to help spread the cheer; three new clips have just debuted online. There’s no new peeks at the impending holiday party, but these are clips from earlier in the film leading up to the massive shindig that will go awry in Chicago. The first two are tame enough, but the last one has some potentially NSFW language if you’re not listening with headphones.

Not too long ago, a couple tracks from the soundtrack of this summer’s mockumentary comedy Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping debuted online, showcasing the latest tunes crafted by The Lonely Island. The rap trio formed by Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer and Jorma Taccone got their start on Saturday Night Live with signature tracks like “Lazy Sunday” and “I’m On a Boat.” For the season finale this past weekend, they brought their rhymes back to SNL in a new music video for yet another track from Popstar. With subject matter that tackles sex and Osama Bin Laden, it’s the most ridiculous one yet.

Knowing the comedy of Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow, you get the feeling there aren’t many clips from the upcoming Trainwreck that are safe for work. They did manage to find one, though. It features Bill Hader‘s character calling Schumer’s character the day after they sleep together. Notoriously promiscuous, Schumer’s character and her friend (Vanessa Bayer) are very confused at the seemingly normal, kind gesture. Hader’s friend, on the other hand, is loving it. Oh, and his friend is NBA MVP Lebron James.
Trainwreck opens July 17. Watch the first Trainwreck clip below. Read More »
