Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” Goodbye Was A Total Tearjerker

Hate goodbyes? Total crybaby? Then prepare yourself, because Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” send-off made this goodbye-hating crybaby bawl. Seriously, I cried harder watching this than I did at my own high school graduation — and “SNL” didn’t even use that “125,600 525,600 Minutes” song from “Rent.” The only thing that takes the edge off Wiig&#8217…

Mick Jagger Brings Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘N; Roll To “Saturday Night Live”

The man who taught several generations about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll is hosting this week’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.” Sadly, Mick Jagger’s probably got less of a drug problem these days than certain other recent hosts who shall remain nameless. [Pop Culture Brain]…

The Good, The Bad & The Meh At The 2012 Comedy Awards

This weekend, politicians and D-list celebs like Caroline Manzo hobnobbed at “nerd prom” aka the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but if I could have had my pick, I would have gone to the Comedy Awards instead. Tons of funny and fine-lookin’ ladies were in attendance; we know they brought the jokes, but did they bring…

Style Stealer: Kristen Wiig In Orange And White

I love Kristen Wiig for many reasons, and it’s been so interesting to watch her red carpet style evolve as her career grew from a “Saturday Night Live” cast member to a major movie star and Academy Award nominee. This outfit, which she wore to a “Friends With Kids” after-party, is such a fun throwback…

How To Play The “Bridesmaids” Martin Scorcese Drinking Game

I found last night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards to be terribly dull, aside from learning the rules behind Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, and Melissa McCarthy’s fun drinking game. So, here’s how it works: every time someone says Martin Scorcese’s name (so, you know, often), take a drink! Scorcese! Scorcese! I’m drunk! …

“Friends With Kids”: An Ensemble Cast Movie That Does Not Look God Awful

Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and…

How Could You Do A “Bridesmaids” Sequel Without Kristen Wiig?

If Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy (and Chris O’Dowd and Jon Hamm, yum) were to star in “Bridesmaids 2,” I would buy tickets tomorrow even if the movie hadn’t started filming yet. But Kim Masters from The Hollywood Reporter writes that even though Universal is planning a sequel to 2011’s blockbuster comedy, Wiig has confirmed she i…

“Bridesmaids” Suit Up, Named “Entertainers Of The Year”

I am loving the cover of Entertainment Weekly, featuring the cast of “Bridesmaids” in tuxedos. The six funny gals were named “Entertainers of the Year” by the magazine and I can’t help but agree. Based purely on the number of times the movie made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants, “Bridesmaids” get…

Kristen Wiig Named GQ’s “Bro Of The Year,” Is Actually Very Shy

“For a lot of comics, there’s a persona they’re not comfortable revealing unless they’re performing. Kristen is incredibly shy; she has her hoodie pulled up and her sleeves pulled over her hands. But this is a woman who wore coconuts on her tits on SNL; she can go to the craziest, most grotesque places o…

Anna Faris Knows What’s Wrong With Tanya On “SNL”

Whether you’re surrounded by suburban moms or you get your suburban mom fix from Lifetime’s signature “women in peril” made-for-TV movies, you had to love this “Saturday Night Live” skit about a game show called “What’s Wrong With Tanya?” Anna Faris, Kristen Wiig and Vanessa Bayer fretted and panicked over just what’s wrong with a…

“Farts Are Not A Solid”: The “Bridesmaids” Bonus Scene

The Kwanzaa fairy came early this year: there’s a 10-minute-long “Bridesmaids” outtake! It’s packed with the most obscure insults to ever pour forth from Kristen Wiig’s brain during that scene where she fights with a snotty teenaged girl in the jewelry shop. You could either watch it here … or grab yourself the “Bridesmaids” Blu-ray…

What’s Up Next For Kristen Wiig?

It’s exciting to see that, in a post-“Bridesmaids” world, Kristen Wiig is starting to get major clout in Hollywood. For years, she has apparently wanted to do a movie called “Imogen,” and it has finally been picked up. Written by the husband and wife team behind “American Splendor,” Kristen describes “Imogen” as such: “It’s basically…

Russell Brand And Kristen Wiig Are The World’s Sexiest Vegetarians

For 10 years now, PETA has crowned one man and one woman as the Sexiest Vegetarians of the Year. And for their decade-iversary, the organization has chosen two of my favorite celebrities for the honor—Russell Brand and Kristen Wiig. Brand has apparently been a vegetarian since age 14 and when asked recently by Kelly Ripa…

“Bridesmaids” Stars Kristen Wiig And Maya Rudolph Can’t Stop Talking About Farting On French TV

There is so much to love about about this French TV interview with “Bridesmaids”‘ stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph. For starters, “Bridesmaids” is called a raunchy comedy, which apparently translates to “les comedies pee-pee, ca-ca coo” or something in French. And then somehow the interview devolves into a discussion about possible film plot…

The Kristen Wiig/Maya Rudolph comedy “Bridesmaids” blew the roof off all expectations, raking in $24.4 million at the box office on opening weekend — the most important barometer in all of Hollywood.

We See Chick Flicks: “Bridesmaids”

Starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd, Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kempner

When Jon Hamm shirtless is not the best part of the movie, you know it’s a good one.

That’s my summary of “Bridesmaids” in one sentence.

But of course, there’s more to say…

Sacha Baron Cohen’s New Movie Is Based On Saddam Hussein’s Romance Novel

Sacha Baron Cohen is all about controversy. I mean, it takes balls to kiss another man in a cage fighting ring and start a near riot of fans outside the wires. But Sacha’s new project, “The Dictator,” is a little different. The movie’s source material is Zabibah and the King. Yes, the romance novel writte…

The “Bridesmaids” Trailer Gets A Naughty Version

I can’t wait — like, cannot wait — for “Bridesmaids” to come out. Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jon Hamm (!!!), and food poisoning jokes? Yes, please. Also, three golden retriever puppies appeal to my inner nine-year-old girl. This “dirty version” of the “Bridesmaids” trailer — NSFW on account of salty language and Jo…
