It's a situation that virtually every couple with a healthy, long term relationship has faced. You and your loved one go home to visit the family and find yourself forced to sleep in your childhood room, most likely on the tiny twin bed that was barely tolerable when you were half your current size. Since this is a 'SNL' sketch, this predicament takes the form of music video, where the ladies of the show invite their men for some sexy time on a bed that has no business being the location of an, uh, adult encounter.
Since 2003, the "Barry Gibb Talk Show" sketches on 'SNL' have popped up whenever Justin Timberlake or Jimmy Fallon have appeared on the show, with Fallon playing Bee Gees lead singer Bary Gibb and Timberlake taking on his brother, Robin Gibb. The last time we saw these characters was in 2011 and its return seemed unlikely following the death of Robin Gibb in 2012. However, the sketch made its big return last night and it brought a handful of surprise cameos along for the ride.
Few guest performers seem to get 'SNL' quite like Justin Timberlake, who has a wonderful habit of showing up on the stage and creating classic sketches and characters with seemingly no effort. In most cases, he would easily overshadow the actual guest host, but when that guest host is show alum (and current late night superstar) Jimmy Fallon, there is less overshadowing and more comedic awesomeness.
On paper, 'The Other Woman' sounds like the set-up for a low key domestic drama: Cameron Diaz plays a woman who realizes that the man in her life is already married. However, the trailer for the film immediately takes this premise in a very different direction, as Diaz and the spurned wife (Leslie Mann) team up to take down the lying man in their lives.
Arnold Schwarzenegger said he'd be back, but so far audiences haven't exactly welcomed him with open arms. 'The Last Stand' and 'Escape Plan' may have underperformed at the box office, but that's not stopping the Austrian Oak from continuing his post-Governor action career and 'Sabotage' looks like more of the same, for better or for worse. A new poster for the film debuted at IGN and it's exactly what you'd expect from this kind of movie.
As far as one-room thrillers go, you don't get much crazier or ambitious than 'Grand Piano,' which sees Elijah Wood spending the bulk of the running time sitting behind the titular instrument. If you're curious how such a thing is possible, the new trailer for the film should fill in some blanks. You see, this isn't just a movie about a disgraced master pianist (Wood) making his grand comeback, this is a movie about a disgraced master pianist making his grand comeback while a sniper (John Cusack) threatens to kill him if he misses a single note.
Few leading men are as reliable as Kevin Costner, who can fluctuate between icy badass and adoring father figure at the drop of a hat. So what happens when you cast him as a tough secret agent and a dad who just wants to spend time with his daughter? Well, the new '3 Days to Kill' trailer gives us a peek at such a scenario.
If it's set in Middle Earth, it's going to open at number one. That's common knowledge. The big question is always how big or how small it's going to open at number one. 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' did open at number one this weekend, but it's a number that's going to feel controversial for people who like to bicker about box office numbers. Is it good? Is it bad? Is it disappointing? Honestly, you could make a case for all of those.
You don't have to be a foodie to know that Guy Fieri is one of the worst things to happen to televised cooking entertainment (and food in general), so the platinum-haired douche bag of the Food Network is the perfect guy to skewer on 'SNL' and the show doesn't pull its punches. Fieri isn't even the main target: his viewers and everything else they watch get torn to shreds.
It's not every day that an actor of John Goodman's caliber hosts 'SNL,' but whatever the odds, it's not nearly as uncommon as him being joined by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro for a holiday-themed sketch that sees the three silver screen icons re-imagined as tough-talking guys on the way to visit the baby Jesus. Yep, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...
