When 'SNL' is on point, there are few live, late night variety shows that skewer American politics so well (but then again, it really does have that category all to itself). There was no way the show was going to miss an opportunity to make fun of the recent government shutdown and there was no way they weren't going to use guest host Miley Cyrus to help do it. The result? A truly bizarre and inspired parody of the music video for Cyrus' "We Don't Stop," which puts Michele Bachmann and John Boehner front and center. Naturally, the new song is called "We Did Stop."
There are few 'SNL' sketches as reliably funny as fake screen tests, which give the cast the opportunity to show off their best and craziest celebrity impersonations. It felt especially important in the most recent Miley Cyrus-hosted episode of the show -- with so many of the big names gone, this was a chance for the lesser known cast members to step up to the plate. And you know what? They did. Mostly.
Well, it looks like the 'Fantastic Four' reboot may not make that proposed March 6, 2015 release date. 'Chronicle' director Josh Trank's take on Marvel's first family of superheroes is currently undergoing a major rewrite from screenwriter Simon Kinberg, which makes us really wonder what the heck is going on behind the scenes of this movie.
Three years after 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' seemingly killed off the franchise, it looks like we'll be heading back to Narnia for a fourth time. For better or for worse, 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair' has been announced and is entering development as we speak.
'The Wolverine' was one of the most pleasant surprises of the summer, a shockingly low key and self-contained superhero story that valued its characters above action. Well, at least until the third act, but that's a complaint for another time and place. The good news is that 'The Wolverine' DVD and Blu-ray will arrive on December 3 with an unrated version, allowing for more Wolverine-stabs-ninjas action than ever before!
There's nothing like a family-friendly animated movie to help shake off the September doldrums and 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' performed as expected. Although Sony's big release effortlessly took the number one spot, this weekend had a few other bright spots, namely a handful of independent films doing quite well in more limited release.
Now that Bill Hader and Stefon have departed the show, we find ourselves treasuring every other recurring 'SNL' character and treating every appearance as if it's their last. That's just a long-winded way of saying "Welcome back, Drunk Uncle!" Bobby Moynihan's rambling, all-too honest (and all-too real) character once again graced the Weekend Update desk with his presence, updating us with his thoughts on current events and introducing us to a member of his extended family.
We're not entirely sure when Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong's porn stars turned TV saleswomen become two of our favorite recurring 'SNL' characters, but bless 'em: we're so glad that these bizarre people get to grace our television a couple times a year. Of course, the only way to possibly make it better is to add Tina Fey, and wouldn't you know it, the legendary 'SNL' alum stepped in quite gamely in the 39th season premiere!
'SNL' is nothing if not timely. With the Tina Fey-hosted season premiere airing less than a day before the final episode of AMC's 'Breaking Bad,' it was only natural that they'd put together a meth-themed sketch. And since this is the world's most famous comedy and variety show, someone was able to pull the right strings and snag Jesse Pinkman himself -- Aaron Paul -- to make an appearance.
'SNL' has never been shy about taking on some of the most popular and controversial topics in the modern world, so it's about time it finally got around to making fun of HBO's divisive 'Girls.' In a fake promo for a new season of Lena Dunham's acclaimed show, guest host Tina Fey and the rest of the cast propose some changes to the program's dynamic that we can't help but wish would actually come to pass.
September may traditionally be a wasteland of half-baked films unfit to open in a proper month, but the lack of competition can actually be a good thing. Could 'Prisoners,' a film made specifically for an adult audience, have opened as well as it did if it was released in a busier month? Probably not.
