    Will Jason Segel Be Leslie Mann's Personal Trainer In Judd Apatow's New Film?

    Judd Apatow is currently in the midst of shooting his "Knocked Up" spinoff, the formerly titled "This Is Forty," and thus far, he's done a pretty good job of keeping the plot details under wraps for now. What we do know is that it will pick up with Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) five years after the events of the first film, assembling a cast of mostly new faces like Megan Fox, Albert Brooks, Lena Dunham, Chris O’Dowd, Wyatt Russell, Ryan Lee, Melissa McCarthy and Annie Mumolo with the only returning actor from "Knocked Up" thus far being Charlene Yi, who played the quirky Jodi. However, it looks like Apatow might be trying to keep...

    Review: 'Bad Teacher' Only Deserves A Mildly Passable Grade

    After the critical and commercial success of "Bridesmaids," and an escalation in the discussion of women's place in comedy both in the more niche-y blogosphere and in mainstream popular culture (illuminated most wonderfully earlier this year in a gonzo episode of "30 Rock"), "Bad Teacher," about a foul-mouthed, irresponsible, self-centered, drug-addled teacher (who also happens to be a woman) seems particularly well-timed. And while the comedy is periodically laugh-out-loud, shoot-soda-out-of-your-nose funny, it also ultimately feels like a missed opportunity; like a substitute that breezes out of your life a semester too soon without ever ma...

    Watch: Full Trailer For 'The Muppets' Is The Best Yet

    It's not been a banner year for The Playlist's inner child. We've been spoiled in recent years, admittedly, but even the better kids flicks of the year so far, like "Rango" and "Kung Fu Panda 2," seem aimed at adults more than children, drawing on the Western and martial arts genres, but neglecting ...

    Mindy Kaling, Chris Parnell & Jim Piddock Join Increasingly Awesome Cast Of 'Five-Year Engagement'

    For the last few years, Hollywood's holy grail has seemed to be the R-rated relationship comedy -- it seems that every other script on the annual Black List is an attempt at the genre, and the summer is stuffed with examples. But only this morning, with the trailer for "What's Your Number?," we've s...

    Max Winkler Talks Jason Reitman's 'Whispers In Bedlam,' 'The Adventurer's Handbook' Still Waiting

    Winkler and Matt Spicer Also Sell 'The First Man' To Paramount Starring Johnny KnoxvilleFledgling filmmaking duo, director/writer Max Winkler and producer/writer Matt Spicer might not be household names at the moment, but if the frequency with which their names keep appearing in the film trades continues, the up-and-coming duo are going to be a familiar force to be reckoned with. The two have their debut feature film, "Ceremony" (which Winkler wrote and directed, Spicer produced) coming to theaters on April 8th starring Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano, and two big name writing projects- "The Ornate Anatomy of Living Things" and "The Adventur...

    'Community' and 'Mad Men' Star Alison Brie Joins Nicholas Stoller's 'Five-Year Engagement'

    Emily Blunt Confirmed As Female Lead Opposite Jason SegelAMC's "Mad Men" is pretty much the best drama series on television; "Breaking Bad" might give it a run for its money, but we reckon the period piece has the edge. While it's more divisive (including within the staff of The Playlist) NBC's "Com...

    Watch: Sidney Fife & Peter Klaven From 'I Love You, Man' Finally Meet Rush

    Ok, so "I Love You, Man" wasn't quite the laff-out-loud comedy we were hoping for, but it provided some good gags and gave Paul Rudd yet another trademark line: "Slappa da bass!"
