CHEVY CHASE, RICHARD DREYFUSS, ANDIE MACDOWELL, LEWIS BLACK, KATE MICUCCI AND CHRIS PARNELL WILL STAR IN GREG PRITIKIN’S "THE LAST LAUGH"



Emmy Award Winner® Chevy Chase (Caddyshack, Fletch, National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise and TV’s Saturday Night Live), Academy Award Winner® Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Jaws), Andie MacDowell (Groundhog Day, Four Weddings and A Funeral, Sex, Lies and Videotape), Lewis Black (TV Miniseries Madoff, Inside Out, The Aristocrats), Kate Micucci (The Lego Batman Movie, The Little Hours, Don’t Think Twice) and Chris Parnell (Battle of the Sexes, Sisters, “Archer”) have boarded comedy The Last Laugh. Written and directed by Greg Pritikin (Dummy), the Netflix Original from producer Rob Paris of Paris Film, Inc. starts shooting today in New Orleans.

After 50 years, talent manager and widower Al Hart reunites with former client Buddy Green who gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian and instead settled down to have a family.  After Al convinces Buddy to perform on a bucket list tour of classic standup venues across the U.S., Buddy gets on last taste of the life he could have had.  The Last Laugh shows the rollercoaster ride of two men rekindling friendships, careers and ideas of the past while traveling around the country together.

“It’s not surprising a script as poignant and funny as this attracted such award-winning talent,” said Paris.  “It’s a perfect fit for a distributor like Netflix because it has universal themes and internationally-recognizable stars. I’m beyond excited to begin production with our amazing team in New Orleans and our dream cast.”

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all.

Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.

Internet Trolls and Critics in the Age of Rotten Tomatoes - A Look at the Critical Response to GOTTI

Hate, intolerance, and cruelty are the most valued currencies in the digital age. Online publications deal in the same eye-catching tabloid headlines that were once exclusive to rags like WEEKLY WORLD NEWS and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The monetization of clicks is ruining many forms of journalism and film criticism is just one of them. When organizations can see what headlines are generating revenue its only natural that sensationalism would start to rise. There is no consorted hivemind like conspiracy to destroy certain films but rather internet activity that has boosted a certain type of writer. From the outside, online film critics share quite a bit with their Twitter troll counterparts.

The critical response to John Travolta's passion project Gotti has been less than favorable, in fact, it has been downright abysmal. A project over ten years in the making, Travolta has poured his heart and soul into this venture. And many writers seem to take pleasure in the film's failure.
