'The Heat' Director Paul Feig Lists His 'Farm Team' of Funny Ladies

Getty Images Getty Images

Paul Feig knows from funny women. The director of "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat" (the latter of which is available on Blu-ray and DVD now), Feig broke the mold of the typically male-dominated realm of ensemble comedies, and proved that studios could make money while also catering to women.

At a dinner party in New York City celebrating the home release of "The Heat," NextMovie was able to chat one-on-one with Feig in a somewhat-quieter corner of the downtown SoHo House. Feig seems to invite the breathless "here's what they wore" recaps more commonly attached to female stars, so here goes: Charcoal three-piece suit, silky indigo necktie peppered with dainty white dots, a crisp white shirt, a purple pocket square bordered by white and coordinating purple socks.

It's not just a commitment to notable ensembles that Feig has in common with his fairer sex counterparts; he said he also tends to see the world from their point of view, saying that when he's tried writing scripts for a guy's guy movie a la "The Hangover," he didn't "have an honest take on it."

Melissa McCarthy and director Paul Feig are now two for two on successful movie matchings thanks to "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat," so now they're ready to take their money-making machine working relationship to the next level, a méfílme à trois.

For those who don't read semi-comedically butchered French, that loosely translates to they're re-teaming for a threefer, and the project which has brought the dynamic duo together again is Feig's own script, "Susan Cooper." Get More »

Melissa McCarthy went from pooping in a sink in "Bridesmaids" to the Hollywood A-List, co-starring in 2013's first big hit, "Identity Thief." And she owes it all to Matt Damon... Sorta.

Director Paul Feig has revealed the genesis for that bodily-fluids-filled moment. It turns out that Kristen Wiig had a Matt Damon cameo in mind and in an effort to have it make sense, Feig and producer Judd Appatow started kicking around unconventional ideas. Get More »

The 13 Most Hilarious Google Movie Searches

Mel Gibson Getty Images

Ah, Google. The greatest information superhighway, where most of us cruise on the daily, searching for intel only an absurdly complex, fast-acting algorithm can provide (unless you use Bing). We look for recipes, statistics, images, ourselves … pretty much anything and everything.

Google is a judgment-free zone, thus you can ask it whatever you'd like without fear or embarrassment. It's a mostly secret enterprise, as far as your personal search history is concerned. But ever since the search giant introduced the auto-fill drop-down function Google Instant, it's given us delicious insight into what others most commonly seek out around a subject.

Vulture made great use of this last week when it looked at what people most commonly asked about when it came to the Google love-fest "The Internship." It inspired us to look at a broader spectrum of Hollywood, plucking the very best/ most hilarious/ most absurd/ most depressing queries. Really, this list could go on forever ... Get More »

Photoshop Disaster: Horrible 'Heat' Poster Mangles Melissa McCarthy's Face

Melissa McCarthy Heat Poster 300x250 20th C. Fox

Our girl Melissa McCarthy just cannot catch a dang break, can she?

Last time, while she was on the promo train for "Identity Thief," the peachy comedienne fell victim to some very poor critical phrase-age concerning her weight (which we're still kinda reeling over, by the way) and whaddya know? With another movie on the way, the heat is back on the giggly gal once again — this time with her as the subject of one of the most faily Photoshop efforts ever. Seriously, ever. Get More »

Posters: If Melissa McCarthy Stole Jason Bateman's Career

Identity Thief Universal

Oh man, what if Jason Bateman woke up one morning and found the posters that adorn his bedroom walls (you know his bedroom is decorated with his own movie posters) were replaced with these?

In "Identity Thief" (on DVD & Blu-ray now), Melissa McCarthy steals Bateman's credit card number and, from there, his very identity. But what if she didn't stop there? What if she continued her extortion of all that is Bateman beyond just the movie they starred in together? What if she snatched all of his movies (and at least one television show)?

It might look a little like this. Protect your information, people! (And, sheesh, how many existential crises can one guy have?) Get More »
