I know we're not supposed to expect anything from Mother's Day, Garry Marshall's followup to Valentine's Day and New Year's Day. I know this even though it stars Julia Roberts, who is arguably the last great movie star, Jennifer Aniston, who gave arguably one of the most endearing and hilarious TV performance of all time, and Kate Hudson, who arguably gave us so much hope in Almost Famous.
Melissa McCarthy is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. This puts me at ease. I think we can confirm that more than any other recurring host, the Spy star commits to ridiculous characters, crafts great moments, and brings a level of shameless audacity that no other performer can touch. The singular weirdness of her characters and their baffling universality is
Look, here she is previewing this week's hosting gig by singing the famous Kanye West jam "Butterscotch Man."
Perhaps her most famous sketch character was Arlene the Office Flirt, a ravenous bandit in a swivel chair who threw herself at Jason Sudeikis and made lewd comments about balloons. It is somehow grosser than I remembered.
While "unsettling" is a key characteristic of many McCarthy renderings, it is particularly awesome to see her irk a wine-guzzling women's group with her grim weirdness. The line about yogurt is hilarious (as is the Jennifer Hudson cameo).
People who eat other people's spare pizza are, indeed, heroes, so please respect Barb's entrepreneurial wisdom here. What is that voice? I respect it.
Tell me if my otherwise flawless pop culture memory is failing me: Besides Sue Sylvester on Glee and Betty Buckley's character in Carrie, we've not had many memorable lady coaches. Well, finally we have a third one. The wardrobe alone is flawless and the brick-throwing is essential. Here's hoping her fourth hosting appearance is as audacious and downright hilarious as her last three outings.
I tend to remember the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire thanks to its flashy trailers, which included Robin Williams vacuuming saucily in schoolmarm drag while "Dude Looks Like a Lady" played. Though he was disguising himself as a woman in order to hang out with his kids amid a bad divorce, I tend to look back on the movie's slapstick moments most of all.
The online comment community and social media have raised all kinds of questions about the new social norms.
Here, Miri Jedeikin, Alicia Malone, and Roth Cornet answer a viewer who wonders if it's appropriate to both appreciate their work and mention their sexual appeal.
Take a look in the player above and the full show below where we chat about the Leslie Mann/Dakota Johnson interview that went viral and more!
You might think of Marcia Gay Harden as that dependable Oscar winner who stars on Code Black, but it's time to shake up your preconceived notions: Marcia is here to wear a skimpy metallic costume and give Fifty Shades of Grey fans a treat.
Harden, who played Christian Grey's (Jamie Dornan) mom in Fifty Shades of Grey, tweeted what I can only call a lovely shout-out to her movie son. I can't tell if this photograph is doctored, but I can tell you this photograph is just right.
Dear Christian: this Halloween costume arrived,but its February. Was it for me? So cute! Trick r treat! Lv Mama Grey pic.twitter.com/IE4rinEt7Q— Marcia Gay Harden (@MGH_8) February 9, 2016
Marcia is here to troll E.L. James fans all day and night, so I hope they'll sign a contract to let the torture continue.
In this edition of THE SNAP, we review what made Lady Gaga's Super Bowl performance so great and wonder if Beyonce, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars lost steam somehow.
In an alternate universe where average (but prestige-conscious) moviegoers decided the Oscar nominations, who'd come out on top? We tried to answer this question by looking at the biggest box office earners of 2015 and picking which movies gave us the most beloved performances. We realized two things: 1) this list looks a lot like what we expect from the upcoming MTV Movie Award nominations; 2) it'd be a bit more diverse than the real Oscars.
