    Watch: Kristen Wiig Is The 'Girl Most Likely' In Trailer For The New Comedy From The Directors Of 'American Splendor'

    Kristen Wiig exploded after the massive success of "Bridesmaids," but unlike Melissa McCarthy, we have yet to see the cinematic rewards be reaped. Her only notable post-'Bridesmaids' turns were a small part in "Friends With Kids" and another little bit in "Friends With Jolly!," but by the end of yea...

    Tobey Maguire and Kristen Wiig Will Star in IFC's Will Ferrell-Produced Miniseries Spoof 'Spoils Of Babylon'

    Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig & Tobey Maguire To Star In IFC Miniseries 'The Spoils Of Babylon'

    When "Casa De Mi Padre" dropped last spring, it more or less died on the vine, and was forgotten about. And that's a shame, because in my opinion, it was outrageously hilarious and go for broke, in the way that only a spoof of Mexican telenovelas could be.

    Watch: Trailer For Wacky Comedy 'Revenge For Jolly!' Featuring Oscar Isaac, Kristen Wiig, Elijah Wood & More

    Every year, amongst the countless films that see a theatrical release -- no matter how small -- there are a select few that are destined for that no man’s land known as direct-to-video. The latest entry in this grand tradition is “Revenge For Jolly!,” a film which our man in Tribeca was not a fan of...
