Justin Timberlake hosted "Saturday Night Live" for the fifth time last night and to celebrate, several other members of the 5-Timers Club showed up in person to welcome him to the fold — including all three members of the 1986 cult classic comedy "Three Amigos."
But let's just say that Martin Short seemed much more excited about it than Steve Martin and Chevy Chase. Get More »
Dads are good guys. They put together our complicated toys, they taught us to drive, and they took us camping. But we've always considered him to be a total dork, or the big bad guy who Mom would call on to deliver the harshest punishments.
We wanted a father who was more like ones in movies. Why didn't we have a dad who built a magical baseball field, was fabulously wealthy, and who greeted crises with jokes, hugs, or lethal force instead of groundings?
We know our dads were cool, always there for us, and making us better people. We love them dearly. But in honor of Father's Day, here are 13 movie dads we still find ourselves admiring for their humor, cuddliness, special talents, and in some cases, bank vaults full of money. Get More »
Comedic stars come and go. Some prove a flash in the pan, while others ride a good streak before their schtick eventually fizzles out. Only a select few reach legendary status in Hollywood.
In celebration of tonight's airing of the 2012 Comedy Awards on Comedy Central, our mate Old Red Jalopy designed these five faux comic book covers illustrating how we view five of these such icons: as heroes. Get More »
Steve Martin has the right idea. First, become an international movie star. Second, write a book. Third, turn that book into a charming and successful movie. Fourth... do that again.
You may remember a lovely little movie called "Shopgirl" with Claire Danes and Jason Schwartzman — it was based on a book that Mr. Martin wrote.
Impressed? We were. Which is why we're so excited that Martin is at it again—this time with his veteran literary effort, "An Object of Beauty."
If you think making New Year's resolutions is for the birds, you're right — and as our awesome new "The Big Year" giveaway proves, it's never been easier or cooler to join the flock.
Just ask Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin.
Those three, of course, headlined last fall's acclaimed comedy "The Big Year," which tells the story of three very different men who embark on a year-long quest to win the annual national bird watching championship. Along the way, though, they discover more than the inner life of birds — they also discover what's important in their own lives. Get More »
They say the U.S. doesn't make things anymore -- that we've lost our way and are no longer No. 1.
Well, "they" are wrong. No country on Earth is capable of producing the quantity, quality and quantity of idiots that our fair land churns out with alarming regularity.
Affable favorite Paul Rudd continues the proud tradition of representing our country's most common commodity in "Our Idiot Brother," nwe on DVD and Blu-ray this week. But can he be stupid enough to join the ranks of elite morons, or does he still have a few more brain cells to kill? Let's review his imbecilic competition. Get More »
Funnymen Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are a trio of birders looking for the rarest species on Earth and finding big laughs in "The Big Year."
Based on the book "The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature and Fowl Obsession" by Mark Obmascik, the comedy follows three men at a crossroads in their lives who wind up competing with each other, in what some would call the trivial pursuit of viewing as many different kinds of birds as possible through binoculars. After many trials and errors, they wind up discovering something even rarer: friendship. Or do they? Get More »
Steve Martin hasn't exactly been cranking out the comedies this century. So if you're, say, under 25, you'd be forgiven (maybe) for referring to the guy merely as "the white-haired guy" in the new laugher "The Big Year."
Sure, Steve Martin may be older than your average "Twilight" star, but the dude was and still is hee-larious. He's been cracking up movie audiences for over 30 years.
From cursing out a rental car agent in "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" to singing about the joys of molar extractions in "Little Shop of Horrors" to marveling over the great wonders of phone books in "The Jerk," these are 10 of Steve Martin's funniest movie moments (plus a few extras). Fair warning: This list might inspire you to dust off your parents' VHS collection. We approve. Get More »
When he's not touring with his bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers, three-time Academy Awards host Steve Martin uses his spare time to give advice to people in need. People like Eddie Murphy.
Martin, star of upcoming comedy "The Big Year" and just general, all-around funnyman, co-starred with Murphy in 1999's "Bowfinger," considered to be one of either actors' better efforts in recent years. Get More »
It would be pretty sweet to be able to just toss away all of your responsibilities (and all concept of reality) and dedicate a year to chasing your dreams.
We can't indulge in such an adventure ourselves (nor do we know anyone who can, really), so we'll have to make do with watching Steve Martin, Owen Wilson and Jack Black trot the globe in search of exotic bird life and existential meaning in "The Big Year." Get More »
