  6. @Thom Yeah, it's amazing that they have never been cast together before this, say like in a late-night comedy sketch show that airs live on the weekends or something. Oh, wait.

  8. Another gay angle-The director's other 1/2 is the blogger Adam Roberts:
    They are cute together,and following their adventures as this movie gains momentum is entertaining and inspiring.

  13. Yep, Bernard, Hader really seems to be expanding his range now that he's left the nest of SNL.

  14. I have to say, that bit with Joanna Gleason, the smashed fish tank, and Wiig's deadpan "Mother..." followed by the pillow scream gave me the biggest laugh I've had in several days.

  16. JARAGO - at least the white fold are not irrelevant.

  17. The film looks great featuring a gay guy who's not necessarily only in heat 24-7.

    Oh, and RICK, take pleasure in how much you have gotten under the skin of so many. I do.

  20. He's gay, so he must be a drag queen. I thought we were moving away from these dated stereotypes.
