"Up All Night:" Finally, A Relatable Set Of Parents On TV

There is one new show that seems more realistic than, say, Zooey Deschanel being single for longer than 36 seconds. It's "Up All Night," the new comedy on NBC starring Christina Applegate, Maya Rudolph and Will Arnett (aka Mr. Amy Poehler). It's funny, it's original, and I think it might just be the most feminist new show on television right now.

Maya Rudolph Gives Birth To A Boy, Jenna Fischer Is Expecting One

There are a lot of congratulations to go around and blue-themed baby rooms to paint in Hollywood these days. Not only did Kate Hudson recently give birth to a baby boy named Bingham Russell, but former SNL actress Maya Rudolph also welcomed a son into her family, reportedly named Jack. This is the third child for the 38-year-old funny lady, who stars in the upcoming NBC TV show, Up All Night. (Maya plays the best friend of Christina Applegate, who attempts to balance work, marriage, and a newborn baby.) Maya and her husband, director Paul Thomas Anderson, also have two girls, 5-year-old Pearl and 20-month-old Lucille.

'Bridesmaids' & The Secret Women Hate To Admit

If I hear one more person describe Bridesmaids as "the female version of The Hangover," I'm going to Kristen Wiig out. Why do we have to label a movie that's hilarious in its own right as the female version of something else? Well, actually I know why. Because a lot of comedies starring women aren't exactly thought of as "funny." And a lot of wedding-related movies are cheesier than they are clever and witty. Bridesmaids is a long overdue exception. Despite its title and premise, it's not really about a wedding, either. We don't even really meet the groom. The movie is about two best friends growing in different directions. Annie (Kristen Wiig) is stuck in a dead-end job after the bakery she opened—and the boyfriend who helped her run it—both go out of business. Her best friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph) has always been her cheerleader and confidante. But their relationship changes when Lillian gets engaged and asks Annie to be the maid of honor.

"Bridesmaids:" Not Your Average Chick Flick

This is God's perfect movie. (OK, maybe it's Kristen Wiig and Judd Apatow's perfect movie, but whatever.) Amelia and I laughed from the opening credits to the closing credits, when she turned to me and said, "I would watch that all over again right now!" And we both would have. You could see “Bridesmaids” on date night, you could see it on girls' night, or you could see it with your parents (if an extended, gross-out scene about food poisoning and diarrhea is something you can stomach next to your parents).

'Bridesmaids' Stars Offer Advice To Real-Life Bridesmaids

It’s those five little words that can simultaneously strike dread, joy, fear, and a slew of other emotions in any woman: “Will you be my bridesmaid?” In what some are calling the chicks’ answer to The Hangover, Bridesmaids assembles a motley crew of female comedians—from SNL stars Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph to Office receptionist Ellie Kemper—to explore the perks and pitfalls of this time-tested tradition. (We’re talking $800 dresses, serious one-upping between bridesmaids, disastrous Vegas jaunts, and fluffy purse dogs as bridal shower gifts!) And not, surprisingly, the cast has plenty of real-life anecdotes and advice to share with those who say “yes” to the bridesmaid dress.
