The Big Sick is insanely funny. It’s also incredibly touching. Somehow the film manages to be equal parts both at once — not an easy balancing act to pull off — which is why it has been one of the best early surprises in Park City after premiering to a standing ovation for cowriters Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival. (The film was acquired Saturday by Amazon Studios for $12 million in one of the biggest deals in Sundance history.)
Director-writer-producer Judd Apatow has been among Hollywood’s most vocal opponents of Donald Trump’s candidacy. As the reality of election returns set in Wednesday, Apatow said that the creative community has a responsibility to “speak up louder now than ever” and use the forums of media and celebrity to hold the Trump administration accountable in the eyes... <a href="http://variety.com/2016/biz/news/judd-apatow-on-donald-trump-people-are-going-to-see-they-got-conned-1201914278/" title="Read Judd Apatow on Donald Trump: ‘People Are Going to See They Got Conned’">Read more »</a><img src="http://media.zenfs.com/en_US/Entertainment/Variety/pc17#038;c26035310#038;c310000#038;cv2.0#038;cj1" class="editorial"/>
Lonely Island’s PopStar: Never Stop Never Stopping lampoons much more than just pop stars. The ex-Saturday Night Live gang comprised of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone take satirical aim at every facet of social media, celebrity culture, corporate sponsorships, and more. One of PopStar’s biggest targets is the celeb gossip empire TMZ, reborn in the film’s universe as “CMZ” and gleefully mocked via Will Arnett (perfectly cast as a Harvey Levin surrogate) and comedians Mike Birbiglia, Chelsea Peretti, and Eric Andre (as the TV show’s cackling reporters mercilessly tracking Samberg’s character, Conner4Real).
Judd Apatow has waded into the impromptu criticism over the new ‘Ghostbusters’ film by insisting that those who are already hating the reboot probably support Donald Trump. The ‘Popstar Never Stop Never Stopping’ producer made this comparison to Uproxx, declaring, “I would assume there’s a very large crossover of people who are doubtful ‘Ghostbusters’ will be great and people excited about the Donald Trump candidacy.
During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show Tuesday, Katherine Heigl cleared up some comments she made about Knocked Up in 2008, calling the movie “a little sexist.” In the interview, Heigl said that she’d meant to frame her comments as a criticism of the way she chose to portray the character, not the movie itself. “[Heigl’s character Alison Scott] was so judgmental and uptight and controlling and all these things,” Heigl said. Talking to Stern, Heigl said that her full quote was a comment about the way the movie “exaggerated stereotypes” for humor.

In much the way that Star Wars: The Force Awakens channeled A New Hope to stoke fans’ nostalgia and enthusiasm, this first trailer for Paul Reubens’ long-awaited return, Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, makes a whole lot of nods to 1985’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. The film, which returns Reubens as the inventive and joyful man-child in an ill-fitting suit, is being produced by long-time fan Judd Apatow, whose reverence for the original film is very obvious here. As with Big Adventure, the trailer for Big Holiday (which is directed by John Lee) opens on an alarm clock that sets off a Rube Goldberg machine of a wakeup call, with springs and strings and catapults that transport Pee-wee from his bed to the great big world outside.
We didn’t think it was possible, but Gillian Jacobs‘ new TV character might be even worse at relationships than Community‘s Britta.

Steve Carell has revealed that Universal almost pulled the plug on ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’ just five days into filming. Because executives thought that he looked like a serial killer.

Judd Apatow brought Trainwreck to the South by Southwest Film Festival as a “work in progress.” Yeah, he’s probably not going to have to change much.

The early consensus is that Trainwreck marks Apatow’s best comedy in years.
