Behold, an oral history of "Scotty Doesn't Know" and Matt Damon's weird-ass Eurotrip cameo

Eurotrip, the 2004 teen sex comedy from Jeff Schaffer, is just a miserable film. It’s undercooked, unimaginative, and roughly 75% gay panic jokes. It’s redeemed, however, by two things: A very catchy song, and a genuinely surprising, all-in cameo from a Hollywood A-lister. At a high school graduation party in the…

Disney says James Gunn will absolutely not be directing Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3

Sorry, folks, but Mickey’s put his big, yellow loafer down: James Gunn will not be directing Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3. Despite rumors of positive “back channel talks,” the overwhelming support of the Guardians cast, and what have no doubt been some intimidating glares from Dave Bautista, Disney has made it…

This satirical trip into "Trump country" is a New York Times op-ed come to life

As the Democratic party flails to find an identity in the wake of Donald Trump’s presidential victory, a number of journalists have tried to “make sense” of his victory by visiting Trump-voting towns and writing braindead editorials that only serve to expose how closed off they are from the realities of the poverty…

Here's how Justin Timberlake and Pusha T helped create McDonald's "I'm Lovin It" jingle

It’s just five notes—ba-da-ba-ba-baaaa—but you know it. It’s invaded your dreams, hijacked your thoughts, and, in moments of pure distress, perhaps even brought you comfort. Those five notes form the spine of McDonald’s “I’m Lovin’ It” slogan, and, though they may sound simple, they form the basis for a story of…

Superman died so Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman could live 

It’s been 25 years since the death of Superman, a cultural event that shocked a nation, swept comic books into the mainstream, and, we’re guessing, inspired that one Our Lady Peace song. The crossover event, which spanned a number of DC publications, is still remembered fondly and, in a bid to make something watchable…

Sacha Baron Cohen delivers the laughs, but overplays his hand on an uneven Who Is America? 

Who Is America? wants headlines. It wants to entertain, sure, but it really wants to see its stunts ripple throughout the 24-hour news cycle. That’s a key difference between this show and Sacha Baron Cohen’s Da Ali G Show—where the latter sought (mostly) to investigate humanity, politeness, and professional behaviors…

Betsy DeVos' massive summer home gets an appropriately brutal architectural critique

Betsy DeVos is very, very bad at her job as President Trump’s Secretary of Education, but that’s okay because she’s also very, very rich, with ties to totally on-the-up institutions like multilevel marketing cult Amway and Blackwater, a mercenary training camp. We learned a bit about her ten—yes, ten—yachts recently…

Judd Apatow didn't think Bryan Cranston seemed "scary enough" to play a drug lord

Breaking Bad was a journey. It wasn’t an exploration of the drug trade or those within it so much as it was a chronicle of corruption. Watching the pilot, you wouldn’t expect Bryan Cranston’s Walter White to evolve in the drastic, violent ways he does, both behaviorally and physically. Creator Vince Gilligan took a…
