Robert Kelly’s ‘Live At The Village Underground’ Will Premiere At The Rhode Island International Film Festival

Robert Kelly is the best comedian you have yet to fall in love with, and even if you have I am sure there is room in your heart to love him just a bit more.

Weird Al Flips The Script On “Blurred Lines,” Teaches Grammar In “Word Crimes”

Weird Al” Yankovic released a new album today. Bearing the oxymoronic title Mandatory Fun, the album is Yankovic’s last on his current contract with RCA, making him an independent artist for the time being. He’s been doing the rounds on podcasts – Comedy Bang Bang, Doug Loves Movies, and more – to promote the album. More notably, though, Weird Al is releasing eight music videos in eight days.

For the first one, the “Happy”-aping “Tacky,” Weird Al enlisted Jack Black, Kristen Schaal, Eric Stonestreet, Margaret Cho, and Aisha Tyler to get gaudy and dance. That …

Kristen Wiig And Bill Hader Shine In ‘The Skeleton Twins’ Trailer

Since showing at Sundance, The Skeleton Twins has had the internet buzzing about the impeccable chemistry of its stars. Those stars are Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, who are once-estranged siblings now reunited in the wake of tragedy. The Craig Johnson-directed film follows the two as they work out their not insubstantial issues and the various skeletons (ahem) they’ve hidden away, dragging along hapless fiance Lance (Luke Wilson) and others (including Ty Burrell) in the process.

The film is, as many have noted, a dramatic turn for the two Saturday Night Live alums, both of whom are known …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Blended’

Film: Blended
Directed by: Frank Coraci
Starring: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore

I had hope walking into Blended. The reteaming of Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, and Frank Coraci (who also directed The Wedding Singer) gave me hope that we might see a return to form after so many failed Sandler outings. Unfortunately, not only did I not laugh heartily once during the film’s 117 minute running time but I cowered into my sweatshirt. I wanted this amalgam of Sandler film career references, off-colored jokes, muddled family messages, and misrepresentation of an entire country to end.…

Will Forte is All Alone in ‘The Last Man on Earth’ Trailer

It looks like Fox is ready to get weird. The TV station will be picking up a new comedy series called The Last Man on Earth later this year which stars Will Forte and whose pilot was directed by the guys behind The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Seth Cohen is also an executive producer. The show follows Phil Miller (Forte) who is literally the last man on Earth… making Forte the only star of the show. Yes, really.

Considering there’s only so much one person can do, we’ll see how this show pans out. Forte is, …
