BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
As 30 Rock draws to a close, fans of consummate comedienne Tina Fey have been having a tough time. Working on our night cheese, lizzing over episodes old and new, and bitterly bellowing "blergh!" as the end approaches, we are nearly inconsolable. But last night at the SAG Awards Fey gave us new cause to rejoice: Mean Girls: The Musical.
A funny joke that was also a barb, but one that didn't alienate anybody in the room? Even Joaquin Phoenix almost laughed! Who knew that was even still possible? Fey and Poehler did, of course.
In the wake of this morning's shocking Oscar nomination announcements, many flabbergasted film lovers are ready for a drink. Thankfully, this weekend we can briefly forget the spotlight-hoarding Academy Awards, and focus on their less stern and oft-drunk cousin, The Golden Globes.
Adding Tina Fey to just about anything makes it better – from the Golden Globes (which she’ll host alongside BFF Amy Poehler) to an episode of iCarley where she memorably played herself. Now she’s joining a project that we already were pretty geeked about, making a potential sequel that much more memorable
It's a good year for people who like to see unexpected names take over awards show, now that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has been tapped to host the Oscars, while at the Golden Globes old pals and funny ladies Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be holding court. It gives a lot of reason to be excited about both shows in a way we wouldn't be otherwise
The Intern has been set up at Paramount. It will star Fey as the founder of a cyber-business that has a fashion slant. She learns, as the company grows, that she’s getting an intern, but instead of working with the usual high school or college-aged up-an-comer, Fey’s character gets a senior citizen.
The plot description as provided by the Times reads a little differently, revealing that Rudd's character would be someone Fey knew in high school but never got to know, and that Rudd has been thinking about her all this time. That sounds even more complicated than the initial love triangle we learned about, but also way more fun to watch
Though Tina Fey is an undisputed queen of TV comedy, the 30 Rock creator and star has been less successful in translating her wonderful brand of humor to the big screen with such middling, broad comedies as Baby Mama and Date Night. However Fey fans may soon have reason to rejoice, as their favorite comedienne is currently considering committing to Paul Weitz’s probable next feature Admission, an adaptation of Jean Hanff Korelitz's insightful novel.
When news first broke that Fox had brought Shawn Levy on board to produce their adaptation of the beloved picture book series Fancy Nancy, I'd voiced concern that Levy, whose last directorial effort was the testosterone-fueled action flick Real Steel, was not the best choice to translate the decidedly girly material. Now, Fox is in talks with Tina Fey, hoping to have her help develop the project alongside Levy, who directed her in the 2010 action-comedy Date Night, as a producer.
Fey is in talks to star in an adaptation of the popular Jean Hanff Korelitz novel. The basic plot follows a Princeton admissions officer that finds herself in hot water after her relationship with a
There’s a pretty eye-popping flying sequence, in particular, where Jonah Hill shows up as a third super-powered character named Tighten (so far left out of the trailers)
Following the release of the first theatrical trailer for Megamind, I was actually fairly high on the film. It appeared to have some genuinely funny moments while playing with the Superman-Lex Luthor
Dreamworks’ Megamind has managed to put two things I don’t particularly enjoy, Will Ferrell and 3D, into something I’m actually pretty intrigued by. The film takes a shot at the superhero movie
Sorry to sound like a ridiculously uncritical fangirl right now, but let me put this in superhero terms you can understand: this is like if The Avengers and the Justice League teamed up together to fight Kim Jong-Il and Hitler
The highlights of the Q&A that followed didn't really have much to do with the movie itself-- Jonah Hill "defending" Mel Gibson by saying the Jews killed Christ, Will Ferrell admitting Charlize Theron is his nemesis
This summer's Despicable Me will be the first animated film to take on the task of sympathizing with the villain, but really, I'm already looking past that one to Megamind
Thanks to some clever casting, a few good jokes and some very awkward dancing, there are moments in Date Night that will make you feel it was worth spending the money
This Friday, I’m going to see Date Night. Not because I love Romantic Comedies, not because Mark Wahlberg is shirtless, and definitely not because The Office isn’t enough awkward Steve Carell humor for me
We have eight clips from Steve Carrell and Tina Fey’s new adventure comedy Date Night. It’s kind of like Adventures in Babysitting for couples, and that’s pretty awesome
Movies like Clash of the Titans are hard to get a handle on from trailers because the effects tend to dominate in the teaser's couple minutes of screen time. It's difficult to know how those effects will translate
Making this new photo from Shawn Levy’s Date Night even more lackluster is that the trailer doesn’t live up to expectations. It has some decent jokes, but the whole run-away-from-the-bad-guys thing is a little too silly
In spite of the fact that it is being written by the same guy who did Shrek The Third, directed by the guy who did The Pink Panther, and marketed by a lackluster trailer, I have high hopes for Date Night
Not that it won't be worth watching-- anything that brings together Steve Carell and Tina Fey is an automatic win, and the trailer looks pretty funny in its own way. But I was expecting more of a madcap adventure
Most surprising of all? They really did want Tina Fey to host it, and Baldwin might have been a second choice to be paired with Martin. Shankman explains, "It wasn’t that she turned us down but her work schedule right in that time
Speaking of amazing, we have six new clips from The Invention of Lying, a movie which promises to be even better than Ricky’s previously fantastic movie Ghost Town and hopefully twice as successful
