The hilarious duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler is back with their new comedy, ‘Sisters.’ Two Jersey girls – and by girls, I mean adult women – return home to empty their childhood bedrooms after their parents sell the house. Before they say their goodbyes, though, they have to throw one last party.
Amy Poehler and Tina Fey plan an outrageous, American teen-esque rager that I’m going to assume goes wrong... not before funny shit happens, though. Plus, Cena tells Fey’s character, “My safe word is ‘keep going. Read More

I’m going to make a blanket statement: any time Amy Poehler is on TV, I want to be watching. Live, recorded via DVR, or streamed online – it doesn’t matter. Everything she does gives me life.
Which brings me to her appearance on Wednesday's episode of Late Night, where Poehler and current host Seth Meyers joined up to revive their infamous segment “Really!?! With Seth and Amy.” Back in the day, “Really!?!” was a rant-y recurring feature on Weekend Update, the notoriously hilarious Saturday Night Live news sketch Poehler and Meyers co-anchored. Read More

When I saw the movie with a few high school friends on Friday night (at 9:30, past the little-kid rush) I wasn’t disappointed. Read More

“OK,” says BUST photographer Ramona Rosales to actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani halfway through their shoot at a bar near his home in L.A. “Now it’s time to bring the sexy.” Raising his extremely expressive eyebrows, the 37-year-old replies, “I thought I was bringing the sexy.

In anticipation of San Diego’s Comic-Con on July 9th, toy company Bif Bang Pow! has created action figures of your favorite superheroes: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.
After all they've done for women in comedy—and for the constant LOLs they've given us—it's no question that they deserve representation as action figures, which are defined as "dolls representing a person or fictional character known for vigorous action, such as soldiers or superheros." Vigorous action? Absolutely. Superheroes? For sure. Read More

So it's officially spring. Instead of celebrating in high-waisted shorts, we're having to celebrate with our jackets on and snacking on office take-out. But we aren't letting snowflakes get us down—we're looking forward to Netflix's new April titles (and the warmer weather that will hopefully follow).
Starting April 1st, Netflix will be removing some pretty longtime favorites: Mystic Pizza, Friday the 13th, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Sense and Sensibility will all sadly, disappear from our queues. Read More
