Michael Bolton Is A Cinephile

According to this SNL Digital Short. Michael Bolton is probably most famous for providing the inspiration for a character's name in Office Space. But after watching this music video from Andy Samberg et al, I think his designation as a "no-talent assclown" in that movie was a little unfair. Not only is he a good singer, but he does a pretty uncanny Al Pacino in Scarface! It's a pretty funny video, which should be no surprise given that the Digital Shorts are routinely the best part of "SNL" these days. Captain Jack Sparrow!

Andy Samberg and Blake Lively Just Had Sex

The Lonely Island is back with another SNL Digital Short, and like mature, grown men, they're boasting about their sexual conquests in song form. The Lonely Island is back with another SNL Digital Short, and like mature, grown men, they're boasting about their sexual conquests in song form. They always manage to churn out a catchy beat with a glossy, rap cliché-riddled music video. Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone take the verses this time around with Akon handling the infectious hook. If you look hard you can catch Akiva Schaffer, the third Lonely Island member, giving the the guys a pedicure. Let's all scream this groove from the rooftops next time we're lucky enough to lay with a girl, in the biblical sense.


Get Charmed To Death By Chris Pratt In Seven Minutes Of 'SNL' Promos

Macklin, you son of a bitch. In case you didn't know that Chris Pratt is an awesome, funny, and delightful person...HE IS. And rather than go through the many, many examples supporting this thesis, you can just watch this extended video of all the SNL promos Chris Pratt did for his upcoming hosting of the show's 40th season premiere. He's just about the most natural person in front of the camera. The comedy that most actors strive for, as well as their work to portray a level of comfort while being filmed. Ole' Pratty's got that in spades. I mean, who else can make seven minutes of video and have all of it be charming. It's a gift. A gift from him to us. WE LOVE YOU, STARLORD!


'Staten Island Summer' Trailer Goes Off The Deep End

Any party with a flamethrower is going to be classic. While Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp should have Netflix covered in the category of madcap, endless summer tales, they're hedging their bets by also airing Staten Island Summer. This looks to be more of a coming of age tale without any of the Paul Rudd motorcycle negligence you get with Wet Hot. Written by SNL's Colin Jost and produced by Lorne Michaels, Staten Island Summer features Saturday Night Live players Will Forte, Fred Armisen, Kate McKinnon, and Bobby Moynihan in a story about wreckless pool lifeguards throwing one final, historic party. It involves a flame-thrower because, what's the harm? There's a pool right there.


Did Michael Bay Use The Same Incomprehensible Footage In Two Movies?

It's his footage, he'll use it as much as he wants! Alfred Hitchcock once said that "self-plagiarism is style." Well, if that's the case, Michael Bay must be one stylish son of a bitch. YouTube eagle-eye "cinefilojermain23" posted a shot-for-shot comparison of footage in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and Michael Bay's earlier The Island, and as you can see above, the similarities are startling. [post-album postid="218333" item="2"]If this gets the attention of Michael Bay (and at almost 800,000 hits as of this writing, it's likely that it will), he'll probably just laugh it off, since it is his footage, after all. Still, it is pretty unusual for a big-budget blockbuster to use warmed-over footage like an episode of Battlestar Galactica from the 70s. (The Hollywood Reporter)


Here's A Pretty Awesome First Look At Netflix' 'Wet Hot American Summer' Series

It's the first day of Camp Firewood, and H. Jon Benjamin is here to narrate. We knew Wet Hot American Summer was coming to Netflix. Now we can confirm that the bat-sh*t crazy foundation of the original is still in place thanks to this fake promotional video that shows us what's in store for the gang at Camp Firewood. Does it hurt that it's narrated by H. Jon Benjamin? No. No it does not. Here's the clip: Yup. That brief little cutout was a throwback to the Michael Ian Black/Bradley Cooper lovemaking scene from the film. A nice little piece of fan service, which is important, because I'm not sure this is going to find a new audience given its weirdness.


SNL Gives Us An Ebola-Focused 'The Fault In Our Stars 2' Trailer

I really wouldn't know this wasn't the original if it wasn't for the laugh track. And the fact that Silverman is like 40. I don't know much about The Fault in Our Stars, but I know it's about a sick person who falls in love with another person, who I don't believe is sick. That's it. The only other thing I know is that it's supposed to be sad. Well, SNL, took that bit of information, along with the fun little Ebola scare that the US is now in the midst of, and combined the two to give us The Fault in Our Stars 2: Ebola in Our Everything. Sarah Silverman plays the Ebola-stricken girl, who is still highly contagious, and thus not quite as lovable as the original sick girl. These sorts of things never lend themselves to explanations of why they're funny, so just watch.


Dwayne Johnson And 'SNL' Give Us The Real-Life 'Bambi' We Deserve

"It's hunting season." Or something to that effect. We've recently been on the receiving end of a lot of live-action Disney adaptations. Maleficent, Cinderella, and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast just to name a few. Well, let's add one more re-telling to that list. The story of Bambi. As told to us by SNL and The Rock. It's gritty, it's real, and it's no fairy tale. Well, technically Bambi was never a fairy tale, but this version REALLY isn't a fairy tale. The clip isn't "Peyton Manning for the United Way" funny, but it's pretty good. I mean, the Rock even with substandard material is still pretty awesome, as is this.
