Q&A: More 'Pretend Time' With Nick Swardson

October 4th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
 'Pretend Time' With Nick Swardson
Nick Swardson is going to push your buttons and enjoy doing it. With Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, he's got a platform to cover everything from a parody of 16 and Pregnant to alien paternity tests.

As the show returns for its second season tomorrow night on Comedy Central, Nick recently stopped by to chat with me about what makes up one of the most twisted shows on television and who he finds funny.

Now that you're working on the second season of Pretend Time, what are some of the differences between season one and season two?

The content I think is even more aggressive, which I d...

Jason Bateman: Greatest Career Resurrection Ever?

July 7th, 2011 3:00pm EDT
jason bateman
One of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now was practically living in obscurity 15 years ago. The second act of Jason Bateman’s career is almost as unbelievable as it is well-deserved. After a career-boosting (heck, career-reviving) role on Fox’s short-lived sitcom “Arrested Development,” Bateman has become ubiquitous in Hollywood comedies and pretty much synonymous with the passive-aggressive straight man character. This weekend, his new movie “Horrible Bosses” opens nationwide co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. The cast, which mi...

Model Suing 'Couples Retreat' Producers Loses

July 10th, 2010 7:11pm EDT
Couples Retreat
A bizarre defamation suit against the producers of Vince Vaughn comedy "Couples Retreat" has been thrown out of court in New York.

Former model Irina Krupnik claimed a snap of her in a bikini, used by one of the film's characters as a sexual aid, is actually a shot she sold to a picture agency in 2001.

In her suit, filed in March, Krupnik insisted she would never have allowed the "commonplace swimwear ad" to be used as "softcore pornography" - and she claimed the film was ruining her reputation.

But NBC Universal bosses maintained they had the rights to use the photo.

And a Manhattan ju...

25 Worst Movies Of 2009

November 27th, 2009 9:46am EST
The Body
Wow, there were some bad movies, like really bad, in 2009 but since we are optimists we like to think the good outnumbered the bad. We already discussed the good movies, and now we will feature the bad and ugly of 2009. Sometimes bad movies are entertaining enough to keep our attention for a few hours but sometimes the movies are so bad we induce vomiting to make us feel better.

Couples Retreat (25) had the cast and the budget to be a funny flick and it came out in the fourth quarter of 2009 when the best movies already came out. This movie was bad, not funny, and it might have marked th...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Couples Retreat,' 'An Education' & More

October 5th, 2009 9:04am EDT
Couples Retreat
Months of waiting for the horror/comedy "Zombieland" were thankfully not spent in vain. Both hilarious and poignant, this film reminds us that even in the post-apocalyptic world that home and family are what you make them.

Narration by the lead character Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) provides a great deal of humor, especially as he expounds upon his rules of survival in the zombie infested world. These rules make frequent appearance on screen during relevant moments, adding additional laughs.

Woody Harrelson is perfect as Tallahassee, the fearless badass with nothing to lose. He's ...

'Arrested Development' Cast: Where Are They Now?

Arrested Development
The family that chicken dances together, stays together. With the February 24 announcement that Michael Cera - the lone holdout - had finally signed on for the long-rumored Arrested Development movie, message boards went bonkers for Bluth bananas.

Cera is easily the most successful and visible post-Bluth. With SuperBad, Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Sundance darling Paper Heart, this kid has perfected the tentatively awkward comedic timing that made you root for the love story of George Michael and his cousin Maeby.

Where have the Bluths been since we last laughed a...
