Anna Kendrick and Jon Stewart Delight Each Other On The Daily Show

Anna Kendrick visited the Daily Show last night, A-game in tow, to promote Into The Woods. We learn that vocal warmups are just embarrassing noises that everyone takes out of context ("like I'm really bad at being exasperated, like I'm new to passive aggression"), that corsets are akin to "being temporarily… » 12/18/14 9:30am 12/18/14 9:30am

The Daily Show Reminds You That Everyone Dies in the Story of Noah

The movie Noah has stirred up all kinds of hubbub over whether it's "Biblically accurate" or a godless Hollywood perversion of the almighty word of God.

Jon Stewart's Megyn Kelly Takedown Is So, So Good

Fox News sure is determined to fight this War on Christmas, huh?
