    Watch: Ryan Gosling & Will Ferrell Are 'Knife Guys'

    This weekend "Gangster Squad" is hitting theaters, and we strong suggest that you catch up with some of these classic gangster movies instead, instead of sitting through the star-studded disappointment. But at least the promo cycle for the movie has allowed a bit of late night comedy to ge...

    Will Ferrell And Kevin Hart Attached To Star In The Comedy ‘Get Hard’; Warner Bros. May Acquire

    For years, at least in some circles, comedian Kevin Hart was known as the uppity Smart Tech Customer who almost clapped up Jay (Romany Malco) in Judd Apatow's “The 40 Year Old Virgin.” The scene is hilarious, now a classic in some circles (definitely around The Playlist watercooler), and Hart stole ...

    The best SNL political impersonations capture some essential truth about that person’s character, hilariously exaggerated: Darrell Hammond’s gleeful,hound dog Clinton, Will Ferrell’s squinty-eyed doofus W. spouting words like “strategery.” Fred Armisen’s Obam...

    The Campaign—movie review

    'The Campaign' has a lot of genuine laughs. Too bad it doesn’t have enough to carry it over the finish line, a mere 85 minutes after it begins. The biggest mystery to me is how experienced comedy hands, on both sides of the camera, can allow their movie to end with a punchline joke that doesn’t get ...

    Review: 'The Campaign' Is A Laughless And Cowardly Political Comedy

    There’s always been something insidious about the MPAA ratings system.

    'The Campaign' Asks: Does Baby-Punching Kill A Political Career? (Review)

    The funniest scene in the political spoof The Campaign  -- and there are plenty -- has nothing to do with politics even though it takes place at a debate. The Democratic candidate played by Will Ferrell is clueless, womanizing Cam Brady, desperate to save his Congressional seat, not to men...

    All snark aside, the recent personal life revelations about "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart, and its implications on her real-life relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson, have made sad reading, just as it's always sad to hear that any nice-seeming young couple are having difficulties. There's al...
