David is a night guard for a company that sells armoured vehicles (known as Loomis Fargo & Company) in North Carolina; and he's not exactly what you'd call a genius. Desperate for a lifestyle away from his routine, low paid job, he sets up a massive heist; intending to break into a vault containing millions of dollars with his co-conspirators Kelly and Steve. They manage to make off with more than $17 million, making it one of the largest bank heists in American history (technically so, as most of the money belonged to the bank). Initially, the police have no leads and David hopes that using the money for something good will redeem him in the eyes of God. The FBI has other ideas when it becomes clear whose behind the robbery.

Dwayne Johnson Turns SNL On Its Head


Dwayne Johnson Kate McKinnon

Saturday Night Live came back with a bang (you'll see what I mean) last night, with an episode hosted by Dwayne Johnson himself. Clearly, any attempts at subtlety were thrown out the window. Basically, Johnson spent a significant chunk of the show with his face thrust in another man's crotch in a "standing 69."

Dwayne Johnson
Remember, guys, the Rock is a serious actor now.

Yep, it was one of those episodes. The golden moment came during a segment depicting an "Indiana Jones" knockoff movie, "Escape From Jungle Island." Johnson, playing "Dr. Bones" - get it? Huh? You got it - plays an adventurer who finds himself on an island with a male companion, Shortlong, and a female companion, who's desperate for Dr. Bones' attention.

JK Simmons Was Just the Worst - and the Best - on Last Night's SNL


J.K Simmons Kate McKinnon

If you don’t instantly remember J.K. Simmons’ name and career, don’t feel too bad – with roles like the Farmers insurance guy and the yellow M&M, Simmons’ sharp wit (or face for that matter) don’t immediately spring to mind. But after his SNL monologue from last night, it will.

J. K. Simmons
Despite his surly character, Simmons is kind of the best.

It was Simmons' tyrannical music conductor from Whiplash who came out when he hosted this week's "Saturday Night Live." Whiplash is, of course a music-themed drama about a young drummer (Miles Teller), who enters a conservatory under the tutelage of a tyrannical, perfectionist mentor (Simmons).

Kate McKinnon Might Be a Better Justin Bieber than Bieber Himself


Justin Bieber Kate McKinnon

The collective consciousness seems to be pretty much over Justin Bieber, but Saturday Night Live sure isn’t. It helped that Calvin Klein recently launched a new ad campaign starring the disgraced teen pop star.

Kate McKinnon
Kate McKinnon does an excellent Justin Bieber impression, just FYI

In what was probably the funniest part of last night’s show, Kate McKinnon reprised her infamous Justin Bieber impression to point out what we’ve all been thinking – Justin Bieber is kind of a man child and the ad is kind of ridiculous.

Jim Carrey Does Sia's 'Chandelier' on 'SNL'. Scarily Well.

Jim Carrey's third appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' at the weekend (October 25th 2014) proved to be another eye-wateringly hilarious episode - though we know we'll be stuck with an image of the actor in a nude unitard and blonde wig forever more.

Jim Carrey does 'Chandelier' rather well

Yes, Saturday's 'SNL' highlight was the Halloween themed office party sketch, which saw the 'Dumb and Dumber' star re-enact the video for Sia's Platinum hit 'Chandelier', alongside identically dressed cast member Kate Mckinnon as they attempted to battle it out for the right to wear the costume. The pair performed the energetic dance routine of 'Dance Moms' star Maddie Ziegler who starred in the video, and while it has to be said that it really is a remarkable rendition, Jim Carrey's customary absurd facial expressions made it a truly unmissable show - that and musical guest Iggy Azalea's unexpected cameo.

Lena Dunham Kate McKinnon The National

The Girls writer appears in the comedy clip with SNL cast member Kate McKinnon but, unlike her character Hannah, this time it wasn't Dunham who was the butt of all the jokes. "I recently went on a Girls ride at a theme park," says McKinnon, her arm linked with Lena's. "Um, I don't think there is a Girls ride," replies an awkward-looking Lena.

The Saturday Night Live Promos With Jimmy Fallon Are Here! Time To Be Excited


Jimmy Fallon Justin Timberlake Kenan Thompson Kate McKinnon

Are you counting down the days until Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake host/guest on Saturday Night Live? Of course you are. We all are. Only three days left. Despite Fallon being an SNL alumn himself, he wasn’t spared from having to brave the NY cold and record some promos for the Dec 21 event alongside Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon. And we’re glad for that, because, predictably, Fallon’s promos are pretty hilarious.

Jimmy Fallon, Macy's Thanksgiving Day ParadeJustin Timberlake, 20/20 Experience Release Party
Brace yourselves, the SNL show you didn't even know you needed is almost here.

And, uh, we hate to break it to you... but JT won’t be there, because of a cancelled flight. Nah, of course he’ll be there, but they did give us a start with that particular joke. Though Fallon and Thompson would be forgiven, since they were apparently forced to stand in the snow (or pigeon droppings, as Jimmy joked in true NY style) for hours to film those promos.
