Kevin Hart Says Moms Aren’t Fun in His ‘SNL’ Monologue and Twitter Isn’t Hearing It (Video)

1 hour ago

Kevin Hart’s third turn as host of “SNL” started out with some controversy, when his opening monologue about his family turned, as many Twitter users thought, sexist. The monologue was primarily about Hart’s kids and how he wasn’t, at first, sold on the idea of having another child (he already has a 10 and a 12-year-old). But it was his take on the roles of men and women in child-rearing that kicked up a social media. You can watch the monologue in the video above.

Here’s What Happened with Luke Skywalker at the End of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

1 hour ago

(Note: This post contains major spoilers for the plot of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and particularly its ending.) Much of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is about Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) coming to terms with his own failures as a Jedi and as a teacher. After Ben Solo (Adam Driver) turned to the Dark Side to become Kylo Ren while Luke was training him, Luke exiled himself to the distant planet of Ahch-To, and obscured the information of where he’d gone from everyone, even Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher).

Minnie Driver Takes Down Matt Damon (Again) Over Mansplaining Sexual Abuse

2 hours ago

Minnie Driver stepped up her condemnation of men trying to mansplain sexual misconduct by judging them on a sliding scale of abhorrence, telling The Guardian, “If good men like Matt Damon are thinking like that then we’re in a lot of f—ing trouble.” Driver was referring to an ABC News interview with Damon on Friday in which he defended Louis C.K. “pleasuring himself” in front of women by saying, “I don’t imagine he’s going to do those things again. You know what I mean? I imagine the price that he’s paid at this point is so beyond anything” Driver, »

‘SNL': Leslie Jones Makes Kevin Hart Tongue Kiss a Stuffed Bear at a Christmas Party (Video)

9 hours ago

A middle class holiday party seemed to be going relatively normally for a while, until Kevin Hart’s Gene didn’t respond quickly enough to a request from his wife Crystal (Leslie Jones) for a kiss under the mistletoe. It had seemed exactly like your run-of-the-mill gathering of friends up until that point, with a few warning signs. Specifically, the restrictions Crystal placed on Gene as soon as they walked in the door, not allowing him to drink alcohol and making him drink Dr. Pepper through a wacky child’s straw. But, hey, that’s the middle class life, right? »

‘SNL': Host Kevin Hart, Who Is Very Short, Delivers Dead-On Impersonation of Shaq (Video)

10 hours ago

Kevin Hart is shot, yes. This is a common joke he makes about himself, being a dude who stands at about 5’4”. That is below average. And it’s about 21 inches short of the Hall of Fame basketball player Shaquille O’Neal — who Hart played during an “SNL” sketch parodying TNT’s “Inside the NBA” postgame show. Hart nailed Shaq’s notoriously rambling style and penchant for going off on tangents at every opportunity, not to mention his faux-feud with co-host Charles Barkley, here played by “SNL” cast member Kenan Thompson. The bit also included Alex Moffat as Ernie Johnson and Chris. »

‘SNL': Host Kevin Hart Pees His Pants During a Meeting (Video)

11 hours ago

This week on “SNL.” we got to see host Kevin Hart struggle to control his bladder during a work meeting — because he was too proud to admit that the reason he needed to bail was because he needed to use the bathroom. The gag in this sketch involved Hart pretending to take a phone call during a meeting in which he was alerted to an important family emergency — but it was all a pretense so he could just go to the bathroom because the meeting was taking place right after lunch. His co-workers were wise to the ruse, »

17 hours ago

Does ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Feature an Homage to ‘The Phantom Menace’?

19 hours ago

(There is a spoiler ahead for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” It’s not really a major spoiler, but you know better than I do what you consider something you don’t want to know before seeing the movie. Do whatever you want with that information.) Whereas “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” operated as though it wanted you to forget the prequels exist by shoving in nods to the original trilogy at every opportunity, “The Last Jedi” doesn’t quite share its predecessor’s disdain for that other trilogy. “The Last Jedi” pays tribute in two ways.
