No one expected much from Sisters, as it opened against Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but it managed to not entirely face-plant by taking in $13.4 million over the weekend. Even though it opened #3 behind Star Wars and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Road Chip, making it into double digits is a win. It did better than recent bromantic comedy The Night Before, which is a little baffling because The Night Before is a WAY better Full Story

Making good comedy is hard, making good war comedy is…ill advised, most of the time. Louis CK mined his own experience with the USO for a stellar three-episode arc on his TV show, Louie, and Three Kings holds up—though it’s not, strictly speaking, a comedy—but I can’t think of many other examples of contemporary comedies about our contemporary war that are actually good.

Last night was the premiere of Tina Fey’s and Amy Poehler’s new movie, Sisters, which opens next week against New New Star Wars. The opening weekend projection for Star Wars is $190-$225 million, which means no one has a clue what it’s really going to do. There are only three comparables for this movie, both Avengers and Jurassic World, and in each scenario the box office was unpredictable. Full Story

I really had to hold my breath for a second to think of what Tina Fey’s dress reminded me of. The image sprang into my head immediately but I had to wait for it to sort of self-locate, because it was so specific. Ready? There is a part in the book, not the movie, ‘Circle of Friends’, where the character Benny buys a dress for a dance but her parents are going to see it, so her friend makes her a ‘pleated modesty vest’ so that the parents won’t freak out.

The trailer for Sisters is out, and I want to write about it fast because soon the Emmy nominations will be all we can care about. But, after you watch, jockey with your friends for who’s watching it with whom and cackle over the shot of the…is that a clarinet? When you’re done with that, let’s talk about the Important Friendship of it all. Full Story

Since I just pissed you off with those Gerard Butler pictures in the previous post, let me make it up to you. These are photos that, guaranteed, no one will object to. Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Tina Fey all together last night at the Steve Martin AFI Lifetime Award tribute gala. Well, obviously, that was the best table, non? Still 6 months to go before we see all of them in their movie, Sisters, opening in December. Full Story
Winter is here… with Child White Walkers. OMG, Game Of Thrones, I thought #9 was when the crazy sh-t usually goes down…?! So how did you sleep last night? Because I went to bed reminiscing about how Joffrey seems so mild now compared to the juvenile delinquent members of the Dead Army. Sarah’s recap is coming up first.
While some of us – many of us – were desperately hoping for dragons and direwolves to show up, the Drama Awards and the Critics’ Choice Television Awards happened last night. Silicon Valley and Transparent (have you started watching this yet? WHY NOT???) were honoured. Amy Schumer was honoured. Bessie was honoured. And The Americans. At no point were Big Bang Theory or Modern Family honoured. So, basically, this is not the Emmys.
Speaking of Amy Schumer, she wasn’t at the TV Awards because she was busy collecting her Peabody Award over in New York and kissing Tina Fey. Photos from the events will be posted on the main page and on LifeStyle.
Yours in gossip,
Like Saturday Night Live itself, the 40th anniversary celebration show was a mixed bag. Here’s everything that was good. Andy Samberg’s digital short Because they are ALWAYS good, but this one, sung with Adam Sandler featuring an assist from Chris Parnell, highlighted the history of character breaks on the show.

Well yeah. Of course there wasn’t enough of them, either of them. And of course, Tina Fey’s first dress made me want to dig through their castoff pile to see what she should have worn instead, although I liked Amy in Clinton Blue on the red carpet. (Lainey: I did not.) The thing with these two is they knew they were out after this year, so they had to accomplish specific things. Full Story
