Yesterday was Sarah Michelle Gellar’s 45th birthday, and she spent it with some old friends who had some Cruel Intentions. As in her co-stars, Ryan Phillippe and Selma Blair, from the 1999 movie.

Seeing them together makes me want to see them do a sequel. Let’s see how cruel they are in their 40s.

Do you know how they say people start to look like dogs over time? Well, Reese Witherspoon looks just like her best friend, Minnie Pearl. It could be because they are both wearing the same sweater, or it could be because her doghter looks more like her than her daughter. What do you think?

MacGruber is back and better than ever
December 16th, 2021 under Peacock, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe, Will Forte. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2007, the World got to know super soldier MacGruber on Saturday Night Live. Three years later, he graduated to the big screen for a feature film. Now, eleven years after, he has his own series on Peacock, and it starts streaming today.

When we last left off, it was MacGruber’s (Will Forte) wedding day to Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig). However, his mortal enemy Cunth showed up and tried to kill them. But MacGruber threw him off a cliff, shot him, and peed on his corpse. So everyone got a happy ending.

Or so we thought. MacGruber has been in prison for killing Cunth. However, he is about to get out because Queeth (Billy Zane) has kidnapped the President’s daughter. In order for POTUS to get her back, Queeth wants MacGruber. So the President says that MacGruber can get out for the exchange.

MacGruber agrees, even though he knows it will be a suicide mission. General Barrett Fasoose (Laurence Fishburne), who is now married to Vicki, takes him to the desert for the exchange. Unfortunately, things go wrong, and Queeth takes MacGruber.

Eventually, he escapes and is reunited with Vicki and Piper (Ryan Phillipe). They decide to take down Queeth, who is planning on destroying the World with a bioweapon.

MacGruber also wants to take out Queeth because he killed his mother and destroyed his father (Sam Elliott). But is he smart enough to do it? We are talking about MacGruber, who is good at blowing things up, and I am not only talking about with explosions. Thankfully, he is not doing it alone. He has Vicki and Piper to help him out with every hair-brained scheme he comes with to take down Queeth.

MacGruber is full of twists and turns. Just when you think you know what is going to happen next, they surprise you. That is what makes this the type of show you can binge in one sitting. Well, that and all the laughs that you will get by watching.

Even though it is Forte’s show, he shares the spotlight with his co-stars. How Phillippe doesn’t break down in hysterics through the eight episodes is beyond me. He deserves an award just for that. Wiig is also impressive with the role because she can keep up with Forte, even in the scenes where they are making love. And on that note, there is nudity. Did that get you to tune in?

MacGruber is just silly fun. There are days you need that, and this series delivers.

If you haven’t seen the movie, and are afraid you won’t know what is going on, don’t worry. Maya Rudolph, who played his first wife, sings a song to catch you up. So you are ready to go.

However, if you have seen the movie, then just like the film. It is Forte doing what he does best, and that is making us laugh with his wit. He is smart while playing stupid. That is not an easy task, but he is so good at it.

Her pale blue suit was covered with them. And because of that, she deserves another award on her mantle. This one for Most Fowl costume!

The Morning Show’s second season is so much better than the first one
September 17th, 2021 under Apple TV+, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]

I have to admit I was late to The Morning Show game because I am not a fan of Jennifer Aniston nor Reese Witherspoon. However, I gave in because of my hard news background and working at a national news network.

I was happy I did because I enjoyed it. I thought Aniston perfectly played the self I perceive her to be. A bitch! That and I liked how the story played out during the first season.

As much I adored it, the second season kicks the first one’s a$$. It is so good; I could not wait to see what happened next after each episode. It even made me even like Aniston, and I never thought that would happen. Damn you.

Before we get to all of that, you have to watch the season premiere episode, which is streaming on Apple TV+ now.

It starts out immediately after the season finale when Alex Levy (Aniston) and Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon) broke the news that the CEO knew that Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) was using his power to sexually harass and sleep with several women on the show. The powder keg just went off, and there will be a lot of bodies left in its wake.

One of them being Alex. She lost her husband via divorce and her job, all in a short period of time. Now, she is living far away from New York City, writing a book. However, there is a book coming out about the UBA scandal from Maggie Brener (Marcia Gay Harden), and Alex is terrified by what is in it. All of that has caused her to basically have a mental breakdown. However, she is liking her private life the way it is.

Then there is Corey Ellison (Billy Crudup), who is the new CEO of UBA. The ratings for The Morning Show are down, and he needs to get them up. He thinks he can do that by bringing Alex back.

That is something Bradley is not going to want. The two of them have not spoken in months. Plus, there is another opening at UBA, and she wants it. Anything not to do another song and dance number in the morning. Oh yes, there is a song and dance number at the beginning of the episode. It is as magnificent as you think it will be.

Now that Chip (Mark Duplass) is working in local news somewhere tiny; he has been replaced. Stella Bak (Greta Lee) is the new President of News. She is 33 and came from the online world. She is sick of the old way and wants to bring UBA into the 21st Century. However, no one respects her from Cory all the way down the chain. Mia (Karen Pittman) has been promoted to EP of The Morning Show, and no one respects her either.

Basically, it is all a mess. But since the episode takes place on New Year’s Eve, everyone is looking forward to 2020 and starting anew. If only they knew the sh!t storm that will be coming their way in two months.

That’s right; they deal with the beginning of COVID-19 as the season goes on. They, like us. watched it go from something that was happening to China to happening in our own backyard.

I wish I could tell that COVID-19 was the worst thing they deal with throughout the season, but it is far from it. There is still so much going on behind the scenes that it is amazing any of them will come out of this alive.

But I have said too much. All I will say is that it is worth subscribing to Apple TV+, if you don’t have it already, for The Morning Show. Seriously, I still can’t believe I am saying this about a show Aniston is on, but her character is really vulnerable, and she plays it perfectly. But, again, I said too much.

So I will stop talking now and tell you to stream new episodes every Friday. It is just so so good.
