Tina Fey has a proven track record of tickling many an audience’s funny bone. Not only is she a seasoned comedian but she is one who never shies away from controversial or awkward humor. Her newest film Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a unique and entertaining adventure that places Fey’s character in a rather precarious situation: the war on terror. It is a fun and smart vehicle for the former SNL player and will appeal to most audiences, especially those who appreciate thought-provoking war comedies peppered with subtle humor and gritty action. Fans of Fey’s will eat this up and so will casual admirers of the gifted funny woman.
Saturday Night Live turned 40 this year and during those four decades, the legendary sketch comedy show has been famous for showcasing young talent and quickly ushering them to new and often exciting heights. The new Lorne Michaels-produced sex comedy film Staten Island Summer is a perfect example of this pushing of budding comedic actors into stardom. The film is overflowing with SNL cast members, both young and old. In fact, there are so many SNL players in this movie that at times, it does feel like a massive sketch put on by its players… and it essentially is, with SNL-writer/performer Colin Jost responsible for the raunchy script. Staten Island Summer is a fun, no holds barred, laugh fest that is sure to entertain many an audience.
