While the gossip site boasts their story has “All the Details!” there are in fact, no event-related details included in the piece.

Andy Samberg Has Advice for New SNL Cast Members

For a long time Andy Samberg was one of the only good parts of "Saturday Night Live." For the better part of three to five years (he was there for seven, but surely it took him some time to become one of the stars), he and Kristen Wiig carried that show with Target Lady and Digital Shorts, respectively. This was probably due in part to the fact that his fellow members of The Lonely Island were writers on the show, but he’s also just a really funny guy. Now Samberg, like many standout cast members before …More

There is something terribly nostalgic about Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg’s new movie “That’s My Boy.” Whether it’s memories of walking out of “Billy Madison” with a strained chest from laughing so hard or quoting lines from “Happy Gilmore” for weeks on end, this movie marks the return of Adam Sandler and Co. to their rightful place among the comedy camps of Hollywood. And it could not come soon enough. For tried and true Adam Sandler fans, a dark cloud has …More

As if “That’s My Boy” didn’t look unfunny enough—featuring a return to the classic and grating Adam Sandler juvenile voice—Funny or Die had to go and cut a new trailer that is even unfunny-er. The upside? The new version is only one minute long. The conceit is stunningly stupid. Andy Samberg appears on screen, displaying the same level of discomfort that he enjoys in the film itself, and explains that he’s taken it upon himself to cut a trailer for “That’s …More
