What the hell were any of us thinking making the terrible Batman Forever a huge hit?

You can see how it happened. The executives at Warner Bros. didn’t set out to destroy the Batman mythos or to make unwatchably shitty Batman movies that would put both the character and the superhero movie genre at large into a state of prolonged stasis. They just wanted a hit. Tim Burton’s Batman Returns, from 1992,…

Jim Carrey painted a very rude portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, because that's what he does now

The most recent phase of Jim Carrey’s career has been marked by 1) cosmic declarations about the nature of self in an ever-shifting universe, and 2) the fact that he is a painter now.

Jim & Andy’s long-lost Jim Carrey footage reveals the madness in the Method

There’s acting, and then there’s Method acting, and then, way out on the fringes of what’s considered acceptable and professional, there’s what we might call Xtreme Method Acting.

We bid goodbye to regular coverage of I’m Dying Up Here by marveling at its ambitious failures

Like a lot of second, third, and fourth-tier attempts at prestige television, Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here might have looked a lot better a decade ago, before every cable network went after their own flagship scripted content, before the advent of streaming networks with their own flagship series, and before about…

Jim Carrey defends Kathy Griffin in Trump photo story that will never go away

Kathy Griffin has received no shortage of scorn since the photograph released earlier this week (on Tuesday—what a week) of her holding a decapitated, bloody Donald Trump head. Although Griffin soon released a public and contrite apology, saying, “I beg for your forgiveness,” she also lost her New Year’s Eve hosting…
