As far as comedy sequels go, “Horrible Bosses 2” gives you lots more of what you liked in the first film.
The title really should be “Dumb and Dumber Idea”, which describes the progression of this tedious and wholly unnecessary sequel.
Get ready for a British invasion on you late night line-up when “The Late Late Show with James Corden” debuts on CBS.
Like the family at its center, “This is Where I Leave You” is a hilarious and charmingly cluttered mess.
Though it has some clever moments, “And So It Goes” is neither wickedly nasty enough nor sweet and romantic enough to leave any sort of lasting impression.
“Sex Tape” has its moments of genuine hilarity, but for the most part it aims low and goes for easy laughs that it hopes will appeal to its target fortysomething audience.
“Tammy”, the latest big screen comedy from “Mike & Molly” star Melissa McCarthy, is as a film as big a sloppy mess as its main character. It’s a surprisingly unamusing and uninteresting film, especially considering the talent that McCarthy and writer/director Ben Falcone have to work with, and perhaps the best thing that can be said about it is that a scant 96 minutes, it’s mercifully short.

Dave Chappelle made his first late-night appearance in more than six years Tuesday, and one of the first questions he was asked was why he quit his cult sketch comedy show “Chappelle’s Show.”
“A Million Ways to Die in the West”, Seth MacFarlane’s eagerly-anticipated follow-up to his 2012 hit Ted, should really have been titled “A Million Ways to Gross Out Audiences in a Western.”
