Michael can't explain what's going on in this exclusive The Good Place previewbut Agent Rick Justice can

The Good Place thrives on a sense of manic improvisation, both from its characters, and from itself.

The trailer for Adam Sandler's new Netflix special has a dog, guitars, dancing, no actual jokes

It’s been decades since Adam Sandler last did stand-up on a regular basis, preferring to deliver his laughs in a format more conducive to filmed (and paid) family vacations. So when Netflix announced that it was extending its relationship with Sandler into a big-budget comedy special this year, there were questions…

Tucker Carlson can't go out to eat anymore because people won't stop telling him he sucks

You can now add Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s name to the list of conservatives whose outside-the-home dining options now come with a family style (and complementary) serving of “Consequences.” Carlson complained on a recent podcast appearance that he can no longer eat in public without people yelling at him all the…

Original Aladdin screenwriter highlights some of the shadier aspects of Disney's live-action remake craze

For most of us, the release of the recent teaser for Disney’s live-action, Guy Ritchie-directed Aladdin was little more than a digital comma, a 90-second lacuna in which our brains neutrally registered the thought, “Oh, yep, that’s Aladdin,” and then moved on. But for at least one of the people partially responsible…

Drake praises Pusha T's diss track "chess move," still thinks someone should punch him "in the fucking face"

As with so many places where entertainment and emotion intersect, rap beefs exist in a weird, semi-real space. On the one hand, they’re pure marketing moves—a way for two performers to raise each other’s profiles, show off their lyrical cleverness, and hopefully sell a few extra albums. But they’re also often the…

John Carpenter: No one involved with Dwayne Johnson's Big Trouble In Little China remake "gives a shit about me and my movie"

Amid the thousand or so projects he’s working on at any given moment—which currently include Jungle Cruise, Fast And Furious spin-off Hobbs And Shaw, Black Adam, a Jumanji sequel, and his controversial decision to play black folk hero John Henry for Netflix—you’d be forgiven for letting a few of Dwayne Johnson’s…

Matt Damon is still sad they couldn't afford to stick more whales in Manchester By The Sea

2016 Oscar winner Manchester By The Sea pulled in a lot of accolades—for its gorgeous visuals of New England living, for its unflinching performances, for its messy examination of family bonds.

The Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie is so grim, extras were reportedly forced to pee on subway tracks

Look, we all know our green-haired murder friend The Joker isn’t your most…conventional…of hosts. He’s a little weird. A little wacky. A little—dare we say it?—off-kilter, and he’s got the expensive and painful facial tattoos to prove it. But let’s be clear: There’s plotting the destruction of an entire city via the…
