The Happytime Murders is an upcoming “raunchy” movie about puppets who team up with Melissa McCarthy to stop their compatriots from being murdered, while simultaneously appearing to ejaculate silly string from their soft puppet parts. Unfortunately, the above trailer’s cursing, drug use, and aforementioned puppet…
If strung-out puppets are your thing, if plush sex workers with hands already up their asses rev your engine, if you like watching stuffed things suffer...well, I hope you’re familiar with Peter Jackson’s 1989 feature-length bad trip, Meet the Feebles. If not, get on it: It’ll make you feel like you have fingernail…
Forgive me, self-assigned arbiters of taste, but I’m about to lay one on you: Life of the Party, for all it’s simplistic script-flipping, is kinda great. At the very least, it’s a pleasant ride and doesn’t ask to be anything else.
Finally, a role for Melissa McCarthy that does her talent for drama justice.
Here is the trailer for Melissa McCarthy’s latest coproduction with husband Ben Falcone, Life of the Party, which follows the adventures of a newly single mother who decides to return to college for her degree. The same college, in fact, as her daughter attends.

As we know, Adele isn’t particularly interested in broadcasting her every personal milestone. And that’s cool — so long as she continues to sing songs that make me cry, I demand nothing else. But you may be interested to know that she got married.
Melissa McCarthy reprised her guest role as Sean ‘Spicey’ Spicer in Saturday Night Live’s cold open.

The occasional distraction in the form of quality entertainment can be very sustaining. Some of our finest comedy ladies are answering the call.
Jennifer Lawrence made $52 million in 2015. That number is slightly down this year, but she’s still leaving most leading woman actors in the dust.
We’ve had to sit through months of sexist Ghostbusters fanboys in a full-blown outrage woody because the new Ghostbusters is comprised of four very capable, very funny women instead of men. The mommy-fear was palpable there, and perhaps a plant, because even despite Missy Elliott, the real thing Ghostbusters fans have…
