'SNL' Review: A Step Back with Cameron Diaz

Well, that didn't last long.

Just one week after seemingly proclaiming its transitional era to be over, SNL reaffirmed viewers' perennial skepticism with an episode that made Woody Harrelson's excellent outing look like that much more of a fluke. Cameron Diaz's hosting gig wasn't quite the disaster the show is capable of, but it exhibited all the symptoms of a bland episode that no one will remember by the end of the season: a game-for-anything host that the writers didn't know what to do with (despite this being her fourth time), a dependence on watered-down recurring bits that the actors seem to love more than audiences do, and a general miscalculation by producers on [...]

Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann Have a Gigglefest on 'Late Night'

If you're unsure whether or not Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann have good comedic chemistry together in their new movie The Other Woman, look no further than their shared interview on Late Night last night, where they told Meyers about drawing all over a sleeping Kate Upton's face, how Mann discovered she was allergic to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and how different their centers of body are. It's hard to tell whether they had a bunch of cocktails before this interview or are just in a perpetual gigglefest, but at least Mann didn't break down in adorably awkward tears this time.

Bad Teacher Review Round-Up: Significantly More Laughs Than Stand And Deliver

The Bad Teacher reviews are in, and they are mixed like the shots and weed Diaz's character sucks down as her students watch Dead Poets Society. In Roger Ebert's Bad Teacher review, as in many others, the film seems to invite comparisons between the awful educator and the terrible Saint Nick in Bad Santa. Bad Santa, it aint'. Writes Ebert, "Its bad person is neither bad enough or likable enough. The transgressions of Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz) are more or less what you'd expect, but what's surprising is that she's so nasty and unpleasant." The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday agrees, drawing the inevitable comparison to The Lady [...]

Feel Better About Your Own Job Performance With New Horrible Bosses Trailer, Bad Teacher Clips

If you're anything like me, you are constantly afraid of losing your job and having to move back into your parents' house. Outside Cleveland. That's why these new Bad Teacher and Horrible Bosses clips are so reassuring. These people are literally horrible monsters and they're still somehow gainfully employed. Horrible Bosses also has a new trailer with some new footage, predominantly Jennifer Aniston expounding upon the ways in which she is a huge predatory creep. I don't know about you, but that makes me feel a little better overall.

Cameron Diaz and Bobby Moynihan Buddy Up in These 'SNL' Promos

Cameron Diaz is hosting SNL this week for the first time in nearly ten years with musical guests Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. NBC just released the first round of promos today featuring Diaz and Bobby Moynihan, who may or may not have rewritten some of the cue cards in crayon.

Here's the Trailer for Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel's New Movie, 'Sex Tape'

How I Met Your Mother may have ended last night, but you'll be seeing Jason Segel in things again soon enough. This is the first trailer for Sex Tape, a new comedy from director Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard, Bad Teacher) that comes out this July and stars Segel and Cameron Diaz as a married couple who film a sex tape, only to accidentally distribute it to their friends and family via Apple products.

Jennifer Lopez, Ed Helms, and Isla Fisher Cast in Movie You Will Avoid

Because Hollywood hates new ideas and loves making movies about things that you may have heard of once, there is a What to Expect When You're Expecting movie being made. And now the cast includes Jennifer Lopez, Ed Helms, and Isla Fisher in addition to the previously announced Cameron Diaz. OK.

Cameron Diaz In Talks For What To Expect When You're Expecting

As Hollywood burns through the last of humanity's source material, Deadline reports that Cameron Diaz is in talks for What To Expect When You're Expecting, a Love Actually-style ensemble rom-com based on the popular pregnancy manual. Time to bust out that rubber vagina from Knocked Up! Actually, call up the rubber vagina factory and tell them get ready for the biggest order of their lives!

Cameron Diaz to Host 'SNL' November 22nd

SNL just added another returning host for this season. THR reports that Cameron Diaz is officially set to host SNL's Thanksgiving episode on November 22nd with musical guests Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. This will make Diaz's fourth hosting stint — she previously hosted episodes in 1998, 2002, and 2005. Prior to Diaz, Woody Harrelson will host on November 15th with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.

Check out one of Diaz's most memorable sketches from '98 "Jingleheimer Junction" below:

'Bad Teacher 2' Is Going to Be a Thing

A sequel to the 2011 Cameron Diaz comedy Bad Teacher is on the way. The studio announced today that they're developing a sequel with Jake Kasdan returning to direct and Cameron Diaz expected to return also. There's also a Bad Teacher TV show in production now, starring Ari Graynor (For a Good Time, Call) and expected to premiere midseason on CBS. It seems strange that everyone's so gung ho about turning Bad Teacher into a giant franchise considering that the original was only a modest hit and received mixed reviews from critics but for those of you who loved the first movie, however, there are plenty more chapters in the [...]

Bad Teacher/Questionable Doctor: Cameron Diaz Removes Jon Stewart's Stitches

If The Daily Show is as committed to preventing typhoid as they claim to be, I really question the wisdom of having Cameron Diaz remove Jon Stewart's stitches with a pair of safety scissors and a mouthful of anticipation saliva. "This is why talk shows plan a conversation," Stewart realizes towards the end of the seven minute bit. Who can focus on Cameron's new film about Phyllis being awesome when all I can look at is the puffy inflamed skin around Jon Stewart's healing wound? Apparently Justin Timberlake is in the movie too? Didn't see him; too busy wound-gazing.

Cameron Diaz Ruins Young Lives in the Red Band Trailer for Bad Teacher

Here's the first (red band) trailer for Bad Teacher, the new movie written by Gene Stupinsky and Lee Eisenberg (The Office, Year One, Ghostbusters 3) that stars Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel and Phyllis Smith (Phyllis from The Office). The plot looks to center around Diaz as a foul-mouthed and kid-hating teacher who ends up changing her ways in order to win a teaching competition and save up enough money for a boob job in order to impress substitute dreamboat Timberlake. You know, normal high school stuff. Premise aside, this looks pretty densely packed with jokes and has a great cast. We'll see! In any case, we've [...]
