Just like Jay Leno did for his Tonight Show farewell, Chelsea Handler enlisted her celebrity friends to close out her time over at E!. After seven years, the 39-year-old hosted the final episode of her talk show Chelsea Lately! She’ll head over to Netflix to launch the streaming service’s first ever talk show, set to debut in early 2016.

Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock and Mary McCormack mocked Handler in a segment which included a surprise by Chelsea’s former flame, 50 Cent. In another bit, Ellen DeGeneres surprised Chelsea in the shower asking why she had never been invited as a guest and wondered if it was because of her sexual orientation.

As amusing as those segments were, my favorite part featured Handler being serenaded by a whackload of stars singing revised lyrics to “We Are The World.” Gwen Stefani kicked things off with solos by Fergie, Avril Lavigne, Trace Adkins, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morrissette, LeAnn Rimes and Tim Gunn.

They were joined in the chorus by Vanessa Hudgens, 50 Cent, Joel McHale, Naya Rivera, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Miley Cyrus, Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Josh Gad, Kathy Griffin, Leah Remini, Wiz Khalifa, Anna Faris, Chloe Grace Moretz, Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Johnny Knoxville and Kelly Osbourne. Marlee Matlin was also on hand singing along using sign language. Check out all the clips below.

Melissa McCarthy & Susan Sarandon Team Up For Tammy

Since her breakthrough role in Bridesmaids, Melissa McCarthy has been unstoppable at the box office. She’s delivered hit after hit including The Identity Thief and The Heat. This July, the 43-year-old actress hopes to keep the streak alive with her latest film, Tammy, directed by her husband, Ben Falcone.

McCarthy stars as Tammy, a woman who thinks she’s living a nice steady life until she loses her job and then learns about her husband’s adulterous ways. Pretty soon she becomes unhinged and goes on a road trip with her alcoholic grandmother played by the wonderful Susan Sarandon. The two run into mischief along the way, including robbing a fast food joint.

If the combo of Melissa and Susan doesn’t do the trick, perhaps the insane amount of talent appearing in the film will. Joining the duo are Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janney, Kathy Bates, Toni Collette, Mark Duplass, and Sandra Oh to name a few. Tammy hits theaters on July 4, 2014. Check out the first teaser trailer below.

It was the end of an era last night on Saturday Night Live. Seth Meyers anchored his last Weekend Update. The 40-year-old comedian holds the record for hosting the segment the longest. His tenure spans eight seasons and 154 episodes. His former co-anchor Amy Poehler dropped by for his last sketch. Andy Samberg and Bill Hader also make a surprise appearance.

Check out Meyers’ final show below along with guest host Melissa McCarthy’s sketches. My favorites include the Super Bowl halftime show skit, the women’s group sketch and girlfriends talk show. Though she didn’t appear in “28 Reasons to Hug a Black Guy,” the video commemorating Black History Month was another highlight. Which ones were your favorite? Weigh in afterward.

Melissa McCarthy hosts Saturday Night Live for the third time this weekend. She’ll be joined by recent Grammy winners, Imagine Dragons, as the episode’s musical guest. Lorne Michaels was wise to enlist McCarthy once again. She’s proven she can deliver huge laughs and fits in quite well with the cast.

As amusing as the sight of McCarthy sucker punching Thompson is, the funniest parts of the clips are the creative ways the two hype the show without using the words ‘Super Bowl‘ or ‘Olympics.’ Since the big game is airing on FOX this year, the peacock network can’t actually say the phrase. For legal reasons, the IOC is equality stringent in how the term Olympics is used. That’s why McCarthy talks about buying an ‘official torch’ as opposed to saying the ‘o’ word. Check out the series of promos below.

Movie Review: The Heat

In: Matt, Movies

Melissa McCarthy returns to the big screen today alongside Sandra Bullock in the new comedy, The Heat. Bridesmaids director Paul Feig directs the film, so naturally I went in expecting another hilarious comedy.

The story has Sandra Bullock reprise her role from Miss Congeniality 1 and 2 as the stuck up FBI agent Sarah Ashburn, while McCarthy plays her unlikely, rough around the edges partner Shannon Mullins. The two have been unwillingly paired up and assigned to catching a drug lord. The two clashing personalities make for a hilarious combination and while predictable, garnered many laughs from yours truly.

One of Hollywood’s leading funny ladies right now, Melissa McCarthy recently stopped by Sesame Street to hang out with Elmo and learn some choreography. Why? Because the word of the day was “Choreographer.”

In the clip below, Melissa and Elmo decide they want to learn some dance moves and Elmo says he knows a good choreographer that can help them. When Elmo comes back with the choreographer is confused. “That’s a penguin…” Elmo responds, “A penguin who loves to make up dance moves!” The first move on the agenda is the “Flappawappa Boom Boom.

Watch Elmo, Melissa and the Penguin all dancing together below.

Tonight (Friday, February 8), the highly anticipated comedy, Identity Thief is opening in theaters starring the hilarious Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman. I’m so excited to see this movie because it looks so funny and also because I’ll watch anything with Melissa McCarthy in it.

The film centers around a man named Sandy (Bateman) and a woman named Diana (McCarthy) who steals his identity. When Sandy finds out who has stolen his identity, it’s his mission to track her down and stop her. Once he’s found her, they end up having to travel together to get the whole situation resolved. The following is a scene from the movie when the two are at a restaurant and Diana uses some of her techniques to get what she wants from the server, played by Ellie Kemper (The Office, Bridesmaids)

As I mentioned, the film comes out tonight and it’s bound to do some damage at the box office this weekend. Enjoy the hilarious scene below!

Although I haven’t seen This Is 40 yet myself, I love a good blooper reel. I’ve heard mixed reviews for the movie but one thing is for certain, bloopers are always a hit.

In the following video, cast members Jason Segal, Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Chris O’Dowd, Megan Fox, Melissa McCarthy & more breakout in laughter as they try to push through some very awkward scenes or hilariously obscene dialogue. One hilarious scene is with Segal, O’Dowd and Fox. When the guys learn that Fox is single, O’Dowd says, “We both would like to know for one…we both want to make love in you.” Needless to say, they all burst out in laughter. Seriously, how could you deliver a line like that and not laugh? I sure couldn’t.

Watch the video below if you want a good laugh to wrap up your week. Enjoy!
