Lazy Friday News is a weekly round-up of stories from across the spectrum of entertainment, or whatever happens to tickle my funny bone. This week: the first demo from The Beatles has resurfaced after 50 years; Emma Stone may have a sex tape out there somewhere; Judd Apatow’s 22-year-old Simpsons script is finally being made; $299 could earn you a celebrity voicemail message; Chevy Chase is walking away from Community; and expect the next Riddick film to come with a hard-R rating.
Summer is here and whether you’re looking for a funny film to lighten your weekend, or something to keep you amused on a rainy day at the cottage, this week I take a look at 13 classic comedies perfect for the warm days ahead.
Available this week on store shelves: Michael Cera plays a very familiar character in Youth In Revolt; Denzel Washington and Mila Kunis try to survive a barren future in The Book of Eli; and a look at Caddyshack on Blu-ray.
Opening this week in theatres, John Cusack stars in the farce, Hot Tub Time Machine; Dreamworks goes mythic once more in the animated tale, How to Train Your Dragon; and Atom Egoyan debuts his latest erotic drama, Chloe.
