5 Reasons Lena Dunham Shouldn't Let Taylor Swift Appear on Girls

It's a testament to the incredible popularity of Taylor Swift that people keep asking her to get onscreen and "act." We use that term in the loosest possible sense, of course, since Swift has all the acting chops of an…

"The Guilt Trip": Seth Rogen Takes his Centrum Silver

Once comic actors reach a particular career stage, they often choose one of two paths: A) They stop being funny and start being all Hallmark heartwarming, i.e., by growing a beard and playing a psychiatrist; B) They accept unambitious, work-for-hire…

Oh Hell Yi

Charlyne Yi is like a bumblebee. She defies all the laws of her environment, yet totally exists. The laws of comedy say that women standups must style and groom themselves to please predictable men, not themselves, for example. Yi does…

Seth Rogen's rent-a-cop rides the bipolar express in Observe and Report

Observe and Report writer-director Jody Hill makes mean-spirited tragedies that studios market as inane comedies because otherwise no one would pay a cent to see them. That's more or less what happened to Hill's The Foot Fist Way in 2008,…

True Bromance

On the surface, Pineapple Express offers precisely what it advertises: a roll-'em-up, smoke-'em-up, blow-'em-up bromantic comedy from the freaks and geeks who have made Judd Apatow's brand of stunted-man yuks a global franchise. Once more, Seth Rogen's red-rimmed, half-shut eyes…

It's a ... Hit!

A few friends of mine who've adored Judd Apatow's Knocked Up at early screenings have nonetheless voiced a similar complaint: There's no way pin-up-pretty Katherine Heigl would end up with soaked-in-bongwater Seth Rogen, not even while drunk on a gallon…
