Maya Rudolph & Danny McBride’s Awkward Family Photo Album

Comedians Maya Rudolph and Danny McBride posed for a series of awkward family photos for GQ. The safari family and the goths are my two favorites, but as you can imagine, they’re all pretty ridiculous. The most awkward part of it all, according to McBride, was the casting announcement for their fake children.

Maya Rudolph Kills It On “Saturday Night Live,” Justin Timberlake Nails Bon Iver Impression

Look, I am not one of those people who is nostalgic for the good ol’ days of “Saturday Night Live,” when the Coneheads and Pat were making everyone laugh. No, I like “SNL” now. But that doesn’t mean it always cracks me up. Usually I watch the show on Sunday mornings, with my coffee and…

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

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…

Is “Up All Night” The Most Feminist New Show On Television?

It’s a good time to be a woman holding the remote: We are supposedly in a renaissance of women producing, writing and starring in their own TV shows. There’s “Whitney,” produced by and starring comic Whitney Cummings; there’s “Two Broke Girls,” written and produced by Cummings and starring the amazing Kat Dennings; “Pan Am,” starring…

“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…

“I think I’m 25 months pregnant. [I’m due in] two more months … in dog years, so that’s 25. Honestly, because it’s my third, I feel like I’ve been pregnant for like six years, seriously … [A homebirth] was not my plan, but that’s what happened because the baby came out really fast. Luckily, she…

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.

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…

Who’s America’s Sexiest Comedienne?

Obviously, we are big Tina Fey, Amy Sedaris, and Aisha Tyler enthusiasts. So we immediately clicked on this Huffington Post poll about 15 of the leading ladies of funny. But—wait—it asks readers to rate the women on their looks? Even HuffPo acknowledges that it’s a “poll of ridiculous proportions.” Sure, these women are beautiful. But…
