5 Best Movies On The Humorous Side Of Child Endangerment

December 9th, 2011 10:00am EST
The Sitter Poster
Why do we love R-rated comedy? Answer: The swearing is better. This sex is more comical. The shenanigans are more extreme. What makes any R-rated comedy better? Answer: Children.

The addition of children to any hilarious movie only makes that movie more hilarious. Having kids along for the ride takes all the things we love about these films and intensifies them. Having a kid in the car during a chase scene makes the danger more real and more frightening (hence the title of this column). Swearing, the lifeblood of any R-rated comedy, seems all the more taboo when it’s done in front of kids....

There were plenty of good movies and we may have the most fun making fun of the bad and helpless ones, but let's take a look at the best movies of 2009.

Most blockbuster movies are filled with overrated stars (i.e. Will Smith and Tom Cruise) and are seemingly contrived, made only to make money. Thankfully this year there were not as ...

'Community' Recap: An A- For The Tardy & Sperm Jokes

September 25th, 2009 8:00am EDT
Community
The second episode of Community was funnier than the first, meaning I laughed a lot more and it actually tickled me at one point.

This week the ragtag study group anxiously awaits Jeff (Joel McHale), for whom they all have varying degrees of crushes. He shows up late, making the big entrance one would while trying to impress the only one in a crowd who doesn't already love you.

Jeff's indifference toward the band of misfits sets up Pierce Hawthorne (Chevy Chase)'s first big laugh with a highly repeatable pun on the word "tardy." My man Abed makes a meta joke about his character's ten...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

10 Things We're Thankful For This Year - What Are You Thankful For?

Before we fall into the annual Thanksgiving tryptophan coma, we'd like to take a few minutes to give thanks for some of the best pop cultural presents received in 2008.

Paul Rudd

This year, the ubiquitous, sexy-silly actor showed up in “Over Her Dead Body,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “Role Models,” guested on HBO’s “Little Britain USA,” and hosted “Saturday Night Live.” Add to that the near-constant airings of “Knocked Up” on HBO and “Clueless” on every other channel, and it’s virtually impossible to get away from the guy…which is just how we like it!

Paul Rudd's Best Work… That You've Never Seen

November 11th, 2008 11:22am EST
Paul Rudd
In the mid-nineties a skinny, nerdy, somewhat sloppy guy burst into the shiny, chic, coiffed world of Clueless' Cher Horowitz and his quick wit and sparkling eyes managed to win her in the end. That guy was Paul Rudd, and he had tween girls all across the country replacing their JTT and Mark-Paul Gosselaar pin-ups with those of someone with a bit more character. Though Rudd has worked steadily ever since his "break-out" role in Clueless, he was often relegated to supporting roles in big projects with even bigger stars (like Romeo & Juliet, Anchorman, or Friends), burying his knack for dry...
