Drew Magary Is Here To Judge Our Attempts At Vegetarian Cooking

Drew Magary is the fun type of renaissance man. A guy who’s down to try just about anything, tackle any thought, wrestle with wide-ranging ideas, and distill it down for our reading pleasure. The best part is he does it all without ever getting to that “I have enough expertise to be insufferable about this”-level. […]

Shia LaBeouf Got His Chest Tattooed For *This*? ‘The Tax Collector’ Is A Dour Mexploitation Disaster

If I had gone into The Tax Collector not having seen Training Day or Fury I probably would’ve come away assuming that David Ayer was some knucklehead townie with a Scarface tattoo. Insomuch as Ayer’s latest movie has principles or themes at all, it seems to worship power, wealth, cartoon masculinity and cartoon religion; a […]

‘An American Pickle’ Is Seth Rogen’s Truly Inspired Jewish ‘Encino Man’

The feeling that seems to have spawned Seth Rogen’s new movie for HBO (which he wrote and stars in) is, essentially, “What would your resilient, industrious ancestors who fled pogroms to preserve their culture and make a life in the new world think of a sniveling, irreligious weakling like you?” It’s a funny thought, and […]

Watch Jason Momoa Stun Wife Lisa Bonet After Completely Restoring Her First Car, A 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible

In the words of the folks over at The Cut, “there’s no real reason to get a husband if he isn’t Jason Momoa.” The Game of Thrones and Aquaman star already has quite a reputation for being a big, sweet Teddy bear of a human, and a pretty solid husband as well. He helps Girl […]

A Swan Song For Boomer Innocence: Reckoning With ‘Caddyshack’ At The Time Of Its 40th Anniversary

By the time I saw Caddyshack, I probably already knew dozens of Caddyshack quotes by heart. It’s just that kind of movie, one that lends itself easily to endless repetition. Bill Murray’s mushy, crooked-mouthed rendering of “It’s in the hole!” is to the 80s what “oh behave” or “my wife!” were to later generations. As […]

The ‘Stuntwomen’ Trailer Spotlights One Of Hollywood’s Most Dangerous Jobs

Let’s list some good movies. The Matrix, John Wick, Kill Bill, Charlie’s Angels, and Furious 7 are good movies, and one of the reasons why they’re good movies is because of the stuntwomen doing impossibly dangerous and entertaining stunts for little acclaim. Their time has come, however, in the trailer for Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood […]

$400k And Years Of Harassment: Tyler Shultz Tells Us What He Went Through To Expose Elizabeth Holmes

After John Carreyrou’s book, an Alex Gibney documentary, an episode of 20/20, and multiple podcasts and articles, it wouldn’t be crazy to think that the story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos has been pretty well covered. That would be true for most stories, but Theranos, seemingly the perfect nexus of unchecked crony-capitalism and Silicon Valley’s […]

‘Caddyshack’ Star Michael O’Keefe Regales Us With Stories From The Cocaine-Addled Set Of The Movie

In trying to write about Caddyshack this past week I fell deep down a rabbit hole I’m only now clawing my way out of. Stories about the making of movies usually aren’t that interesting, but this one sends you in all different directions. Chevy? Bill? Douglas Kenney? The National Lampoon? When you try to pin […]

Steve-O’s Often Disgusting New ‘Comedy’ Special Is A Weirdly Emotional Journey

Steve-O from Jackass has a new comedy special out and, at first, I had reservations. (For the record, you can stream it from his website, starting July 30th, no middle man necessary). Steve-O appears live onstage from Denver, with a tasteful part in his hair and clad in a snuggly red flannel, discussing the tribulations […]

Jake Weisman On The ‘Corporate’ Final Season And Getting Really, Really Dark One Last Time

Corporate begins its third season and final on Comedy Central this week, and if it has slid somewhat under the radar, that’s arguably because it doesn’t look like anything else on TV. Of the most popular comedies of the past 10-15 years, most carry the obvious whiff of their spiritual forebears. 30 Rock had the […]
