Kudrow and Merchant kept making each other laugh during the filming of new comedy 'Table 19'.
In terms of best buds in the movie scene, American star Lisa Kudrow and English comedian Stephen Merchant don’t necessarily seem on the surface like natural friends – but the pair of them got on like a house on fire on the set of new comedy Table 19.

Released in the UK last week, the Jeffrey Blitz-directed comedy tells the story of a load of odd-ones-out thrown together on one wedding table.

There isn't a lot of subtlety in this madcap animated comedy, which is more aimed at nostalgic adults than young kids who will miss the rapid-fire movie references. But it's also silly and busy, and cute enough to make everyone in the audience sigh a few times. And it's anchored by a terrific vocal performance from Alec Baldwin that channels his infantile Donald Trump impersonation to hilarious effect.
The story is told through the eyes of a creative 7-year-old named Tim (Tobey Maguire as the film's narrator, Miles Bakshi as the character), who has enjoyed growing up as the only child of his playful, loving parents (Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel). Then a little baby brother (Alec Baldwin) arrives, and Tim discovers that he can walk and talk, and also that he's the CEO of Baby Corp, sent on a secret mission to spy on Puppyco, where Tim's parents work. Apparently, puppies are becoming more popular than babies, and now the Puppyco boss (Steve Buscemi) is preparing to launch a breed of puppy that will forever steal the love of parents from their children. In a panic, Tim teams up with the Boss Baby to get rid of him for good.
It's clear to grown-ups in the audience that all of this is happening in Tim's wildly imaginative head, which kind of eliminates any tension in the crazed action mayhem that follows. Younger viewers may find the premise itself rather baffling, but will enjoy the hyperactive pacing and snappy dialogue. The only problem with this is that it means that the movie remains resolutely superficial, touching on big issues like sibling rivalry and corporate greed without ever dealing with them. And it presents a baby as an aggressive invader, which may be how it sometimes feels to an older sibling, even if we know better.

The cast of the classic sitcom all got together, away from the cameras.
Lisa Kudrow has revealed that the long-awaited ‘Friends’ cast reunion has happened, but sadly it was in private.
Speaking on the ‘Today’ show the actress, who played Phoebe Buffay in the classic sitcom, said that the whole cast got together recently for a private dinner, away from cameras.

What happens when a baby takes the top position? Seven-year-old Tim Templeton was doing just fine until his parents brought home his new baby brother, who seemed determined to attract as much attention as possible and steer their parents' sights away from poor Tim. Sibling rivalry is a natural thing, but Tim is exasperated by his mom and dad's blindness towards the baby, who happens to be constantly dressed in a business suit and carries a mini briefcase. It seemed inevitable that the baby would grow up to be a boss someday, though everyone expected him to actually grow up first. One day, Tim discovers that the baby can talk, though it's less 'goo goo ga ga' and more 'let's strike a deal'. As much as this news rocks Tim's world, he must team up with his bossy little brother when they discover that the CEO of Puppy Co., Francis E. Francis, wants to take over the world.

As the director of The Help, Tate Taylor may seem like an odd choice to make a movie based on Paula Hawkins' sexy mystery thriller bestseller. While the film features three central female characters, it also has a dark and twisty plot. Taylor manages to bring out plenty of insinuating textures in the characters to keep the audience intrigued, but he never quite gets a grip on the Hitchcockian elements of this story about identity and life expectations.
The title character is Rachel (Emily Blunt), who commutes into Manhattan every day, observing life in the suburban homes along the train line. She's particularly fascinated by one house and the blonde woman (Haley Bennett) who lives there with her lusty husband (Luke Evans). But the fact is that Rachel knows this woman: she's Megan, the nanny who takes care of the infant daughter of Rachel's ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux) and his new wife Anna (Rebecca Ferguson), who live just a few doors down. And Rachel has a history of stalking them. Then she spots Megan with another man (Edgar Ramirez), just before Megan goes missing. So when Rachel emerges from yet another black-out drunken stupor, she begins to worry about what she might have done.
This is another challenging role for Blunt, who plays the shattered Rachel with raw grit. This is a woman who doesn't trust her own mind, knows that she drinks far too much and feels incapable of getting over her past mistakes. The film also occasionally circles around to show scenes from Megan's and Anna's perspectives, and both Bennett and Ferguson bring superbly unsteady textures to the roles. These are three complex, flawed women dealing with very big issues in their lives. And there are smaller but pivotal roles for the gifted Alison Janney (as a detective), Laura Prepon (as Rachel's flatmate) and Lisa Kudrow (as an old friend). By comparison the men are a bit simplistic.

Whilst Eloise was in a relationship with Francie's brother, they were the best of friends; they were so close that Francie asked Eloise to be the Maid Of Honour at her wedding to her fiancé Doug. When Eloise is dumped (via text) by her boyfriend she loses the friendship of Francie too and finds herself being removed from the coveted role of Maid Of Honour.
The wedding date draws closer and Eloise battles with the decision as to if she should go to Francie's big day or not - even RSVPing with a scribbled out 'not attending' box. Finally the day arrives and Eloise instantly becomes regretful about attending.
With no plus one to keep her company and the only people she knows quite clearly distancing themselves from Eloise, she feels very alone and the day suddenly becomes one that she must 'just get through'. As their table places are assigned she sees that she's at the back of the room on table 19 along with all the other ragtag guests.

No it was not Michael Hagerty, he played superintendent Mr Treeger.
A great TV mystery has finally been solved, as the man who was known to millions of ‘Friends’ viewers as Ugly Naked Guy has finally revealed himself (no, not in that way). After a year long search, Todd Van Luling from The Huffington Post tracked down the man whose face we never saw and confirmed his identity as actor Jon Haugen.

While it's amusing and sometimes very funny, there's an air of desperation about this sequel to the 2014 breakout hit comedy. The main problem is that, instead of pushing the characters forward in any way, the plot is basically a rehash of the exact same series of events. So the cast and crew rush through it in the hopes that audiences might not notice, throwing in issues like girl power and gay marriage to make it look like they noticed the criticisms of the first movie.
It's been a year or so, and now Mac and Kelly (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are selling their house to move to the suburbs before the birth their second child. But just as the sale is agreed, a sorority moves in next door, founded by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) in defiance of the usual frat-house rules. They get help from former fraternity leader Teddy (Zac Efron), who's aimless because his best pal Pete (Dave Franco) has just agreed to marry his boyfriend. So Mac and Kelly are worried that the loud parties are going to jeopardise the sale, and when talking with Shelby fails, the stand-off escalates into all-out war. And when the girls turn on him, Teddy swaps sides to help take them down.
The dialogue is packed with hilariously wrong humour, mainly adult gags that are spoken around very young children. The idea of a little girl who chooses a pink dildo as her favourite toy is good for one laugh, but perhaps not the next 10 the filmmakers try to wring from it. Meanwhile, there's a strange exhaustion in the air, as both Teddy and Mac seem tired of all of this nonsense. Efron and Rogen play the roles with impeccable timing, but both seem aware that they've already pushed these characters as far as they possibly can. Byrne has a lot more spark, and provides most of the best laughs. And Moretz shows some skill at spiky silliness.

We're not joking. 'Friends' is coming back for one more episode.

The duet even managed to eclipse guest spots by Selena Gomez and Justin Timberlake during the fifth of her five nights at the Staples Center.
Taylor Swift ended her five-night run at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Wednesday night by inviting yet another clutch of guest stars onstage to perform with her – including ‘Friends’ actress Lisa Kudrow for a totally awesome rendition of ‘Smelly Cat’. Yes, really.
Swifty may have also invited A-lister BFF Selena Gomez on stage as well as Justin Timberlake, but the evening was unquestionably stolen by Phoebe Buffay, at last getting her big break at the massive L.A. arena. It did really happen, if you want to check out this amazing fan video on Twitter, with the crowd joining in to help belt out the classic ditty.
Taylor Swift's guest stars on her 1989 World Tour have been some of the highlights
