Review: The Kitchen

The Kitchen, with its small budget, big names stars, and comic book roots, is the kind of August movie that sounds like it could turn into a sleeper classic. It's got the the low-budget but high-quality feel to it that always seems to lead ...

Holmes & Watson lose big at the Razzies

You know awards season is winding down when it's time for the annual beat up on the popular bad movies awards show, also known as the Razzies. It's not that I'm against the Razzies, since making fun of bad movies is always such a fun experi...

Review: Can You Ever Forgive Me?

It’s been thrown around a lot that this would be the defining performance of Melissa McCarthy’s career, and I have to admit that I entirely believe this to be the case. Ironically, even as unrecognizable as she was, her perfor...

Sesame Street might murder Melissa McCarthy

Don't fuck with the street. That's the message Sesame Street producers are sending to the makers of Melissa McCarthy's forthcoming puppet comedy, The Happytime Murders, with a brand-new lawsuit featuring undisclosed damages. Citing th...

See Life of the Party early and free

You know, every Melissa McCarthy movie just looks more derivative than the next. I use to look forward to her movies, but it just seems now that she's making the same thing over and over or making someone else's same thing over and over. It...

Watch Melissa McCarthy savage Sean Spicer again on SNL

Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live over the weekend to portray White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Like the previous Spicer sketch, McCarthy went to town on that prevaricating jabroni, and it just got more and more absurd...

Review: Ghostbusters

Look, I wasn't that excited for a Ghostbusters reboot. It had nothing to do with the cast being women and everything to do with my boredom of Hollywood reboots and a really terrible initial trailer. It just didn't look good and so I ha...

The Boss edges out Batman v Superman at the box office

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice would inevitably drop to second place at the box office--such is the law of diminishing returns--yet who would have predicted that Melissa McCarthy's The Boss would knock the boys out? The Boss made $23.48...

 
 
The Boss Review photo

Review: The Boss

The first time I saw a trailer for The Boss was just a few weeks ago. I'd kind of generally ignored its existence, because... why wouldn't I have? I mean, honestly, it looked terrible. I saw that trailer and thought, "Yup," and that wa...

First Ghostbusters trailer doesn't know who to call

I've been going back and forth with Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot each time we get a new look at the film. On the one hand, it's a new Ghostbusters so it'll at least be entertaining (and coupled with the fact they're a group of women bump...

Four new Ghostbusters photos accompany first official image

The new, all-female Ghostbusters is coming and it is probably going to fantastic considering the cast is awesome and Paul Feig is directing. However, we haven't had any official looks outside of a few social media posts. Now they are c...

Official reveal of dem new Ghostbusters

You may have seen some blurry, not so great images of the new lady Ghostbusters floating around, but Paul Feig is having none of that. As he's been doing over the past week (like with the Ecto-1) he just released our first look at the new t...

Review: Spy

Over the past few years I've grown increasingly tired of Melissa McCarthy's shtick. I figured this was because I was tired of her, but it turns out she's just been making mediocre movies. Her shtick still works when someone is actually maki...

See Spy early and free

Do you still find Melissa McCarthy hilarious? If so we've got some tickets for a movie you'll want to see. Spy is about McCarthy being a spy, which is funny because she's overweight, I think. Hopefully it turns out to be funny because ...

All female Ghostbuster reboot nearly cast

We've heard plenty of rumblings about Paul Feig's upcoming Ghostbusters reboot that puts four female leads into the act of busting ghosts. Kirsten Wiig and Melissa McCarthy have both been rumored for quite some time, but today Variety is co...

You've been sitting around thinking about how you'd love to see Bill Murray in another quirky comedy/drama, haven't you? Flixist is here to grant your wishes because we have passes for St. Vincent a quirky comedy starring Bill Murray, ...

 
 
Tammy Review photo

Review: Tammy

Tammy is a film you really want to be good. An almost entirely female led cast in a raunchy comedy is still a rarity despite Bridesmaids showing us all it can be done successfully. This is the kind of movie we need to diversify th...

 
 
Tammy Trailer 2 photo

Second trailer for Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy

I really, really want to love this trailer for Tammy, but I can't find it in my heart to do so. It's got everything I'm supposed to love: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, PIE, but I've just been let down by McCarthy's string ...
