E13 Holidaze: 'Home for the Holidays' & 'Happiest Season'

“Home for the Holidays” is a 1995 film written by W. D. Richter (based on a story by Chris Radant) and directed by Jodie Foster. It's about a woman named Claudia (Holly Hunter) who loses her art restoration job at a museum before going from Chicago to Baltimore to spend Thanksgiving with her family. Her parents, played by Anne Bancroft (who is fantastic) and Charles Durning, are well-meaning but kind of suffocating and not super attuned to what's going on with their children. Her brother, Tommy (Robert Downey Jr.), is gay and seems to use immature humor as a coping mechanism while with his family. His longtime boyfriend isn't with him and Claudia assumes this means they've broken up. Instead of his boyfriend, he brings some guy he works with named Leo Fish (Dylan McDermott), home. Claudia assumes they are together and treats Leo with a heavy dose of skepticism. Claudia and Tommy's sister, Joanne (Cynthia Stevenson) is a super judgmental homophobe who is unhappy with her life and treats everyone else like garbage as a result. Family tensions collide at Thanksgiving dinner, but there is of course a happy ending. It turns out that Leo is not Tommy's boyfriend, but a friend who saw a picture of Claudia and wanted to meet her. The movie ends with Leo boarding Claudia's flight back to Chicago and asking if they can spend more time together. We also find out that Tommy is actually married to his longtime boyfriend but didn't want to subject him to the madness of his family at Thanksgiving. It's one of those movies that is not super compelling plot-wise but has a lot of great, small moments thanks in great part to the cast. It's also fun to see actors like Claire Danes, who plays Claudia's daughter, and Steve Guttenberg, who plays Joanne's husband, pop up briefly. “Happiest Season” is a 2020 film written by Mary Holland (based on a story by Clea DuVall, who also directed). It's about a Pittsburgh couple named Abby (Kristen Stewart) and Harper (Mackenzie Davis) who have been dating for a while and decide to spend Christmas together for the first time. Harper invites Abby, whose parents are both dead, to her family's house but neglects to mention that they don't know she's gay until they are already en route. Not only does she ask Abby to pretend they're just roommates, she also requests that she pretend to be straight. As you can imagine, this creates several toxic, uncomfortable scenarios for Abby, who spends most of the movie floundering around, neglected, while Harper panders to her pretentious, narcissistic parents (played by Mary Steenburgen and Victor Garber), fights with her competitive sister (Alison Brie), and flirts with her ex-boyfriend (Jake McDorman) who shows up everywhere. Abby's only allies are her hilarious friend, John (Dan Levy), and Riley (Aubrey Plaza), one of Harper's high school ex-girlfriends who was also damaged by her dishonesty. Despite the total shit show that Abby is forced to endure, Harper does eventually come out to her parents and the film ends with everyone magically happy and smiling one year later. Harper and Abby are engaged and the whole blended family (including John) is at the movies together as some horribly cheesy song plays.

Welcome to “Not Couple Goals” where co-hosts Allie Nelson and Tyler McCarthy do a deep dive into a different ridiculous romantic thriller from the vantage point of their long-term relationship.

Tyler, an entertainment reporter and critic, often finds himself drawn in despite his better judgment. Join them as they explore all the ways it's possible to love too hard… like WAY too hard. This week, Allie and Tyler lean into Spooky Season with the Dave Franco-directed thriller, “The Rental,” starring Alison Brie, Jeremy Allen White, Shelia Vand and Dan Stevens.

Alison Brie had one of the luckiest big breaks in the history of television. Before the age of 30, she managed to simultaneously co-star on TV's most celebrated drama (‘Mad Men') and most obsessed over comedy (‘Community') before the age of 30. In the seven years since those two shows ended their iconic runs, she has gone toe-to-toe with both comedy stars like Will Ferrell and acting legends like Meryl Streep on the big screen and rose to the top of the call sheet in her beloved Netflix series ‘GLOW.' In this episode, Brie talks about making the move to indie film screenwriting with ‘Horse Girl' and now her Italy-set comedy ‘Spin Me Round.' She also addresses whether fans can expect to see Chevy Chase in the eventual ‘Community' movie, explains why she felt the need to apologize for her voice work on ‘Bojack Horseman' and a lot more.Follow Alison Brie on Twitter @alisonbrie and Instagram @alisonbrieFollow Matt Wilstein on Twitter @mattwilsteinFollow The Last Laugh on Instagram @lastlaughpodHighlights from this episode and others at The Daily Beast Hosted on Acast.

From ‘Ninotchka' to ‘Love Actually': A celebration of the romantic comedy

The Colin McEnroe Show

In his new book, From Hollywood with Love, critic Scott Meslow lays out two ways to tell if a given movie is a rom-com. First, his own definition: “A romantic comedy is a movie where (1) the central plot is focused on at least one romantic love story; and (2) the goal is to make you laugh at least as much as the goal is to make you cry.” And then, The Donald Petrie Test, named for the director of some rom-coms, like Mystic Pizza and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but also some edge cases, like Miss Congeniality and Grumpy Old Men: “If you removed the love story from this [comedy], would you still have a movie? If the answer is no, it's a romantic comedy. […] If the answer is yes, it's a comedy with a romantic subplot.” So those are the litmus tests. Now, does that make Broadcast News a rom-com, or no? What about Annie Hall? Or something like Grosse Pointe Blank? How about His Girl Friday? Or even, actually, Love Actually? This hour, a deconstruction — and celebration — of the romantic comedy. Some favorite rom-coms from some of the people on this show: Illeana DouglasTheodora Goes Wild (1936)Bringing Up Baby (1938)Ninotchka (1939)Too Many Husbands (1940)The More the Merrier (1943)Christmas in Connecticut (1945)Cluny Brown (1946)Pillow Talk (1959)The Apartment (1960)What's Up, Doc?

Sleeping with Other People (2015)Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis are at the peak of their charms in this witty rom-com about two friends who reunite years after losing their virginities to each other — the rare rom-com to get the balance of raunchy and sweet just right. Man Up (2015)Ignore the lame title — this rom-com, in which Lake Bell plays an unlucky-in-love woman who pretends to be a man's blind date, is pure, fizzy fun (and is also the only rom-com I've seen to borrow a plot point from The Silence of the Lambs). Destination Wedding (2018)Other critics weren't as high on this extremely stripped down rom-com, in which Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves snark their way through a wedding they'd both prefer not to be attending — but in a genre in which so many characters have “negative” qualities that are actually just adorable, I appreciated this movie's deliberately sour tone. Plus One (2019)A delightfully unapologetic throwback to the genre's '90s heyday, but with a modern touch, as two platonic friends (Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine) agree to be each other's plus-ones for a packed wedding season before realizing they may actually have a spark after all. Colin's 5 (or 6) favorite rom-coms Heaven Can Wait (1978)I realize this is assailable on the basis of Julie Christie not being an especially memorable character and getting less screen time than, say, Jack Warden. Warren Beatty is so vain, he probably thinks this movie is about him, and he's sort of right. But it is very nearly perfect and enriched by an amazing ensemble of supporting players. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)I surprised myself by ranking SLP this high, but I love the frank and funny handling of mental illness and its indistinguishability from being an Eagles fan. I've seen it quite a few times, and I invariably cry at the end. I love what J-Law does with her part, and Chris Tucker and John Ortiz are standouts among the fine supporting cast. Shout out to Kevin Lowry for his work as dolly grip on the “A” camera. The Lady Eve (1941) / Intolerable Cruelty (2003)These are both “rom-cons” involving grifts by a femme fatale who is usually a few steps ahead of the male lead. Barbara Stanwyck actually generates more sexual heat than the smoldering Catherine Zeta-Jones. She was still doing that 42 years later, hitting on a rain-streaked, bare-chested priest played by Richard Chamberlain in The Thorn Birds. But I do love Intolerable Cruelty. I think it's the only Coen brothers rom-com and definitely an homage to the '30s and '40s. Say Anything (1989)I loved John Cusack during this period. A few years later, I was seeing a psychotherapist who looked exactly like him. It was distracting. I've learned that Cusack didn't really see himself as a romcom person and even pushed back against the iconic boombox scene. That has something to do with why this movie works so well. Bringing Up Baby (1938)Grant. Hepburn. Two leopards. Thirty pounds of sirloin. What's not to love?

A four-time collaborator of writer-director Jeff Baena, the pair have just put out Spin Me Round, a masterful and modern rom-com with a titanic twist, for IFC Films. Our captivating cover star is equal parts fan favorite and actor's-actor, and on this podcast we discuss specific roles she's played, her big body of work, roles on Mad Men, Community, GLOW and so much more.

We talk to the two-time Golden Globe and five-time SAG Award-nominated actor about what it's truly like, being widely and publicly recognized for your work. We talk about her turn as a writer;  about how she does it, where she writes from (literally and figuratively), and about creative partnership. We discuss refueling and recharging as an artist, and the important role exercise plays in her life. You'll hear about the kinds of work Alison would like to take part in making in the future, as a writer, director and producer, and also as an actor, including her desire for doing something “dangerous and messy” when it comes to film. We talk working with women, basking in all things GLOW, Promising Young Woman, and exciting new project, Somebody I Used To Know, including the story about co-writing it in quarantine with her husband Dave, who is also director. Alison explains why fans of Community will get a kick out of its casting. She shares her special moment with Spielberg, all the details about unlike-anything-you've-seen Spin Me Round, down to Molly Shannon's crazy costumes and how part of the film's premise was sparked by an article about a certain Italian restaurant chain, and more. Then there's her #Obsixed list of latest obsessions, spanning skincare and touting tv. It's an incredible conversation with Story + Rain cover star, Alison Brie.

The summer season may be winding down but Erik Childress and Steve Prokopy found 11 movies to talk about this week. They revisit their thoughts on the bizarre Alison Brie/Aubrey Plaza Italy film from SXSW (Spin Me Round). Steve checks out a couple of documentaries about Indigenous leaders trying to take back the Amazon rainforest (The Territory) and one on the career of musical artist, Courtney Barnett (Anonymous Club). Erik looks at a struggling married couple on a yacht to nowhere (Get Away If You Can) and a whole town that experiences the effects of drinking horny water (Love In Kilneery). Steve has Emile Hirsch and Kate Bosworth isolated for cash prizes (The Immaculate Room) and the pair look at another two-hander involving Ryan Kwanten, J.K. Simmons' voice through a glory hole and the end of the world (Glorious). Lili Rinehart stars in a gutless Sliding Doors scenario (Look Both Ways) and a mentally challenged Stephan James tries to solve the death of his sister (Delia's Gone). Isabelle Fuhrmann returns to the role of the con artist who looks like a child (Orphan: First Kill) and Idris Elba tries to protect his daughters in the Cujo for Lions tale (Beast). 0:00 – Intro 3:41 – Spin Me Round 16:31 – The Territory 22:02 – Love In Kilneery 31:29 – Anonymous Club 39:26 – Get Away If You Can 46:41 – The Immaculate Room 54:03 – Glorious 1:02:32 – Look Both Ways 1:16:13 – Delia's Gone 1:29:13 – Orphan: First Kill 1:41:19 – Beast 1:57:55 – Outro

In this episode of The Discourse Podcast, we talk to actress Alison Brie (“Community”) and director Jeff Baena (“The Little Hours”), both of whom are currently out promoting their latest project that they co-wrote together, “Spin Me Round.” It's their third collaboration following "The Little Hours" (2017) and "Horse Girl" (2020), the latter of which Brie starred in and co-wrote. “Spin Me Round” stars Alison Brie as a manager of a well-known Italian chain restaurant who wins an all-expenses-paid getaway to the restaurant's “institute” outside of Florence, Italy. While there, she meets and has a brief romance with the charismatic owner of the chain and slips into a potentially sinister unraveling of her trip. The film has a jam-packed cast filled with comedic heavy-hitters like Aubrey Plaza (who happens to be Baena's wife), Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker, Molly Shannon, Debby Ryan, Tricia Helfer, and Alessandro Nivola.

The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are examining Netflix's 2020 indie sci-fi thriller "Horse Girl" co-written and starring Alison Brie as a woman who thinks she may be abducted by aliens, and they're watching for the first time the supposed classic from 1974 "The Conversation," the Francis Ford Coppola movie he mad between the two "Godfathers"s. Available on Spotify and Apple Episode 351 includes: -Me Too updates: David O. Russell, R. Kelly, and James Franco still bad humans -Is there any realistic hope at all for Rob Zombie's "The Munsters"? -"Jerry and Marge Go Large" is sweet and shockingly almost conflict-free. -"Thor: Love and Thunder" has the right parts but is trying too hard to rekindle your memory of "Ragnarok." -Switch the Pitch -- "Horse Girl" / "The Conversation" -What exactly is 2020's "Horse Girl" really going for? Is 1974's "The Conversation" a victim of our sensibilities about a surveilance state and a conspiracy thriller moving beyond what it can do? The guys discuss their misgivings about both movies and then pitch a brand-new project combining elements from both movies.

‘Tis the season for holiday romantic comedies (not to mention those airing nightly on the Hallmark Channel) which also feature ALL of the cliches and rom-com tropes you have come to know and love!  Here's a Christmas movie that broke out last year for a few reasons: 1) it features an A-List cast, better production values (it's actually shot on-location), and….2) at its center is a lesbian couple played by Kristen Stewart and MacKenzie Davis.  Abby (Stewart) and Harper (Davis) – are in love and Harper is finally bringing Abby home to meet her parents for Christmas….or is she?  And of course, Harper hasn't been honest with Abby OR her pretentious family and what results has often been described as the “Lesbian Christmas Version of Meet the Parents.”   Let's find out how this crazy holiday rom-com holds up against the rest! Host: Geoff Gershon Producer: Marlene Gershonhttps://livingforthecinema.com/#livingforthecinema #kristenstewart #mackenziedavis #christmasmovie #moviereviews

There are a lot of themes running throughout 2020's Promising Young Woman; we're just not sure what the ultimate message is. That being said, this is a film that places an uncomfortable mirror in front of the viewer and forces you to look into it. And we'll do our best to try to look inward and address the many problems with the film and ourselves with returning guest Jennie Lee. We'll also discuss the quintessential home decor of your typical East LA douchebag, our Bo Burnham/Freddy Krueger musical pitch, sexist golf clubs, and much more. And lastly; it's totally okay to not like this movie.If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual assault or abuse, the National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).Promising Young Woman stars Carey Mulligan, Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Adam Brody, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Max Greenfield, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Sam Richardson, Molly Shannon, Clancy Brown, Chris Lowell, and Steve Monroe.

The adage “you can never go home again” didn't apply to Cecily Strong. She did, and it's what got her on Saturday Night Live. Cecily tells Marc why she didn't stick around in Los Angeles after studying acting at CalArts, a move that people told her was a mistake. They also talk about why she got kicked out of her high school, how she battles her depression, what it was like to perform for the Obamas, and why she was in a Chinese opera with Alison Brie.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
