Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Shutter Island,' 'The Ghost Writer,'

February 15th, 2010 3:50pm EST
Last week I caught Steve Buscemi's dark comedy "St. John of Las Vegas" which was slightly disappointing. While the right brand of humor was there; twisted laughs and awkward moments that inspire chuckles

, I felt that the film did not have much to say.

The overarching story seemed to be building up to some kind of life altering self-realization or dramatic event taking place in Las Vegas for Buscemi's character John Alighieri. This moment never really came, and as a result the entire film seemed very anti-climactic.

Buscemi and Romany Malco make a hilarious team, as Malco's chara...

More Crazy Hijinks On 'The Sarah Silverman Program' Season 3

February 11th, 2010 10:10am EST
Sarah Silverman
Sarah Silverman fought for a third season of her Comedy Central show The Sarah Silverman Program. It was certainly worth the wait, as she has plenty of highbrow social commentary coming up this season.

"I get in trouble for peeing in a mailbox," Silverman explained. "Or what I thought was an old timey e-mail machine, a box for one of those old timey e-mails I think."

To be fair, she did know that whatever it was wasn't a toilet. "Knew it wasn't a toilet, that's true."

That episode also pokes fun at Silverman's penchant for calling people "retarded." "That is the episode where I fin...

Why Sarah Silverman's New Boyfriend Is Better Than Jimmy Kimmel

February 10th, 2010 9:33am EST
Jimmy Kimmel Should Reevaluate the State of Things
In this month's edition of Page Six Magazine, Sarah Silverman gives an interview in which she discusses the difficulty of dating after the end of her five-year relationship with comedian, Jimmy Kimmel. Not surprisingly, getting back in the game after so many years proved to be challenging but apparently starting over with her new, unnamed boyfriend has been better for her ego than dating Jimmy.

"The guy I'm dating now, who is so awesome, is not my typical fare. He's really skinny. Usually I like pudgy, macho-ish guys (sic) I think he's the first guy in a decade who's given me any kind o...

Steve Buscemi, Romany Malco & Hue Rhodes Discuss 'Saint John of Las Vegas'

January 29th, 2010 9:11am EST
Saint John of Las Vegas
"Saint John of Las Vegas," the debut film of writer/director Hue Rhodes, stars Steve Buscemi as John, a former gambling addict who escapes his messy life in Las Vegas to live out his twilight years in New Mexico

as a non-descript auto insurance claims adjustor. But when John's boss (Peter Dinklage) sends him off with a humorless fraud investigator Virgil (Romany Malco) to investigate a suspicious claim from outside Las Vegas, John is sent spiraling in an eccentric world of addiction, nude militants and burning carnival folk. Starpulse recently sat with Rhodes, Buscemi and Malco and discu...

Rosie O'Donnell, Ricky Gervais & Sarah Silverman Sound Off Against Jay Leno

Comedians sound off against Leno
Now that the whole NBC late night debacle is settled, Conan O'Brien is free to look for new work. While his fate was still uncertain, comedians were asked for their opinions on the matter. It seems like most of Hollywood was on Team CoCo's side.

Rosie O'Donnell: "If you're privileged enough to get asked to drive the bus, you should say thank you and drive it to the best of your ability. And when it's time for them to hire a new driver, you should say, 'Thank you for allowing me to drive this for as long as I did' and pass the keys to the new guy with red hair and not try to flatten his ...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies -'When in Rome,' 'Edge of Darkness' & More

January 25th, 2010 10:59am EST
Edge of Darkness
I took a break from the movies last week, since nothing in theaters was particularly calling out to me as worthwhile. Instead I saw a release on video I wanted to catch: the new "Family Guy" "Star Wars" parody "Something Something Something Dark Side." I found "Dark Side" to be pretty hilarious, although perhaps not quite as novel as "Blue Harvest." As a lifelong "Star Wars" fan, I've always had an appreciation for shows and movies that deftly lampoon the series.

This last week in January Kristen Bell portrays a workaholic skeptical about love in the romantic comedy "When in Rome," Me...

Fearless Females in Comedy

November 18th, 2009 11:23am EST
Leslie Mann
Buried under a mountain of dick jokes and sweaty, hairy men, the one shining go-to for laughs in Universal Studios' "Funny People" was supporting actress Leslie Mann. No stranger to the boys' club, Mann is a graduate of the "Apatow School" but has proved herself to be more than a worthy opponent when stealing scenes - regardless of whether or not the man behind the camera was in her family (the two have been married since 1997). Though she has been in this business for almost twenty years, Mann has only been getting the critical acclaim she so richly deserves in the last few.

Mann can be...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Mac And Dennis Break Up

November 13th, 2009 4:00pm EST
Last week's episode of Sunny, with its dick towels and "frame bangs" (a euphemistic Dennis-ism for late night rapes performed for blackmailing purposes, his casual use of which still makes me cringe), started to make me worry that the show might be headed down the wrong path - being raunchy just for raunchiness' sake. While I enjoy a good teabag joke as much as anyone else, crude does not automatically equal funny. (Are you listening, Sarah Silverman?) So, I was relieved to find that this week's episode managed to be one of the funniest this season, while keeping things as close to PG-13 as...

Emmy Nomination Surprises, Snubs And Shouldn't Be Nominated

July 16th, 2009 3:17pm EDT
How I Met Your Mother
To paraphrase Ned Flanders, apparently an Emmy nomination is easier to get than an acceptance letter from Arizona State.

This morning, Emmy tried to one-up Oscar's new rule of ten by including six nominees in the acting categories and a whopping seven in the series categories. Yes, if you made a television series this year, or appeared on one, chances are you heard your name called in North Hollywood this morning.

With so many nominess, it seems impossible that any deserving performances or series were left out. Right? Sadly, no. And, of course, there are plenty of nominees who sh...

Spotlight On Comedic Couples

Amy Poehler & Will Arnett
Who digs funny couples? Not the awkward, laughing-at-you kind that might be clueless or socially weird but the legitimately engaging, entertaining and hilarious ying and yang of Mr. & Mrs. Whomever. Rarely will the life of the party date the other life of the party - at times there's not enough attention to go around. But sometimes it happens, and if we're lucky they'll go into showbiz.

Sarah Silverman stars as...Sarah Silverman in the The Sarah Silverman Program. Her everyday life--which is just that much more exciting than yours--is played out through scripted scenes, animation, and absurd songs. Without a care in the world, Sarah spends her time with her sister (played by real-life sister Laura Silverman), geeky neighbors who may or may not be gay (Brian Posehn and Steve Agee), and the kindhearted and mustachioed Officer Jay (Jay Johnston). Without caring for anyone but herself, Sarah skates by on her good looks, quick wit and uncompromising immaturity.
