Fox Aims to Make ‘Star Wars’ Jealous With ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip’

Apparently Fox has a lot of confidence in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. The studio heads believe in this movie so much that they have intentionally bumped up the release date to compete head-to-head with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is a ballsy fucking move for the pun-based franchise. It’s already been accepted that Star Wars is going to be the biggest movie of the holiday – if not all time. Whether or not...

The problem is, its second episode didn’t seem to do anything to improve upon the...

Why is ‘Mulaney’ So Bad?

John Mulaney is one of the best stand-ups working today. If you look up any of his sets or specials, what you’ll find is carefully crafted bits with precision delivery. Along with Bill Hader, he also created and co-wrote the character Stefon, one of SNL’s best recent bits. He knows what he’s doing and he does it very well. Which is why it’s not only sad but confusing for me to say that his new sitcom, Mulaney,...
