The Night Before Review

Good

This blending of the stoner bromance with the Christmas comedy works surprisingly well, layering gross-out humour with holiday sentimentality. So it's a bit of a shame that the script is thin and ultimately rather pointless. There are observations about the nature of friendship and maturity, but nothing very deep. But along the way, the cast and crew pack in a riotous sense of humour that mainly centres on drugs and genitalia, plus a whiff of Christmas magic.

The movie centres on three best buddies in New York: Ethan, Isaac and Chris (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie). Over the past several years, they've celebrated Christmas together with a series of traditions including karaoke, Chinese food and loudly festive sweaters. But now Isaac's wife Betsy (Jillian Bell) is about to give birth to their first child, and Chris' pro-football career is beginning to take off. So this will be their last Christmas Eve together, and they plan to make it an epic one. Ethan has secured tickets to New York's most exclusive secret holiday party, which he learns that his not-quite-ex girlfriend Diana (Lizzy Caplan) is attending. Meanwhile, Betsy has given Isaac a box of drugs for a last blow-out, and Chris scores a stash of weed from a mythical dealer (Michael Shannon).

The premise is certainly packed with possibility, and the filmmakers have a ball with the druggy excesses as the night unfolds, including wildly anarchic set-pieces that throw these likeable characters into all kinds of messy situations. The three lead actors make the most of their roles, adding layers of complexity that aren't in the script while indulging in rampant silliness at every turn. And the supporting cast are up for it as well, fully committing to the movie's crazed atmosphere. There are also hilarious extended cameos from James Franco and Miley Cyrus.

'Homeland' & 'Masters Of Sex' Picked Up For New Seasons By Showtime


Damian Lewis Claire Danes Michael Sheen Lizzy Caplan

Showtime has renewed two of it's most popular shows, Homeland and Masters of Sex, for additional seasons past their current run. The network announced their plans to continue each series by at least one more season by a public statement, released via Entertainment Weekly, on Tuesday, 22 October.

Homeland
The cast of Homeland won't be going anywhere soon

David Nevins, President of entertainment on Showtime, said in the statement, “Homeland continues to prove its strength for Showtime, and is one of television’s most exciting, provocative and widely-discussed shows. It has grown its audience significantly in each of its three seasons. The critical and audience reaction to Masters of Sex since its great launch has been incredibly gratifying. It’s a privilege to get to work with such talented and creative people as Alex Gansa and Michelle Ashford, as well as their tremendous casts. They have each created truly original shows, with distinctive voices that are among the most admired series on television.”

How 'Masters Of Sex' Is Turning Into One Of This Year's Best TV Shows


Michael Sheen Lizzy Caplan

Showtime's newest series, Masters of Sex, is only two episodes old, but already the series is being routinely heralded as one of the network's best shows on offer. And it isn't just the critics who are falling for the new drama series, as audience numbers are on the up too, making the series look more and more like one of the year's brightest newcomers.

Masters of Sex
Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan star as pioneering sex researchers.

According to the Nielsen ratings, as reported by Variety, the show managed to draw in 1.1 million viewers during last night's episode, which seems like a much more impressive number when placed alongside the already-successful Homeland's 1.8 million viewer numbers. At it's peak, the show amassed as many as 1.5 million viewers, 100k more than the peak it attained in it's first week. Being placed right after Homeland in the listings may have worked to it's benefit, but there must be more to the shows success than a million people too lazy to turn their televisions over when Homeland ends. So what is it that make Masters of Sex so good?

'Masters Of Sex': Can You Feel The Excitement?


Michael Sheen Lizzy Caplan

Brand new drama Masters of Sex aims to get between the sheets by looking at the two 1950s researchers who played a key part in the sexual revolution of the 20th century. Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan play William Masters and Virginia Johnson, two unlikely colleagues who go in search of the rhythm and reason behind the sex lives of American couples.

Masters Of Sex
The Show Is Slick, Stylish, Funny & Employs A Phenomenal Cast.

Airing on Showtime in the US and set to air soon on the UK's Channel 4, the show will focus on a pivotal time in human behaviour research where the subject of sex was still taboo and sexual therapy didn't exist as it does today.

Is Michael Sheen's 'Masters Of Sex' The Finest TV Show Of The Year?


Michael Sheen Lizzy Caplan

TV is where it's at. It just is. With Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead thriving and the likes of Robert De Niro and Matthew McConaughey turning to television roles, the small-screen is beginning to match its big brother for sheer quality and in most cases, provides far more in terms of character and story. Can you imagine Walter White unfolding over just 2 hours of cinemas?

Lizzy Caplan Masters of SexMichael Sheen and Lizzie Caplan in 'Masters of Sex'

And that brings us on to Masters of Sex, a 1950s set drama based on the book by Thomas Maier and stars the Welsh actor Michael Sheen as a pioneering human sexuality researcher. Bolstering Showtime's fall offering (it will premiere Homeland season three on Sunday), Masters of Sex is easily one of the best reviewed TV shows of the year.

How Masterful Is Lizzy Caplan In Showtime's 'Masters Of Sex?'


Lizzy Caplan Michael Sheen

Lizzy Caplan is one actress, whose career has been a joy to watch through the years – from a sour rebel highschooler on Mean Girls, through a droll caterer on Party Down, through to her hilarious/outrageous/endearing take on a bridesmaid in Bachelorette. Every role Caplan has done has benefited from her trademark wit and snark and now, the actress lends those same qualities to sex researcher Virginia Johnson on Masters of Sex.

The new Showtime series follows researcher William Masters and his assistant, Johnson, as they venture to explore the largely unknown field of human sexuality back in the 1950s – a time when talk of anything vaguely sexual was virtually taboo in most circles. But we know from her previous work that Caplan in particular has no problem with bending and breaking taboos. She has appeared nude in some of her other roles and is, in fact, not even interested in the question of nudity anymore.

Michael Sheen & Lizzy Caplan Are 'Masters Of Sex' In New TV Show


Michael Sheen Lizzy Caplan

Showtime's Masters of Sex will focus on the relationship between two sex researchers who devote their careers to putting others' sex lives under the microscope. William Masters and Virginia Johnson were two unlikely partners who worked together during the middle of the 20th century in a period of time now recognised as the sexual revolution. The pair, played by Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan, began studying human sexual behaviour in the late 50s when the subject of sex was taboo and sex therapy didn't exist as it does today.

Michael Sheen

Masters was a socially awkward doctor who had trouble persuading his patients to open up about their private lives; that's where Johnson came in. Virginia had been pursuing a difficult career as a country singer but her talents lay in that she was able to make people feel comfortable enough around her to share their sexual experiences and troubles.

'Masters Of Sex', Showtime's Upcoming Drama, Has Some "Decidely Unsexy" Intimate Scenes


Michael Sheen Teddy Sears Lizzy Caplan

Showtime's latest drama Masters of Sex follows the lives of two sex researchers in the 1950s. Based on the lives of William Masters and Virginia Johnson the series will depict their life and work. As sex sells it's likely to be successful, if not somewhat controversial for more conservative viewers.

Michael Sheen

Masters of Sex will follow the early working relationship of Masters and Johnson. It draws heavily from Thomas Maier's non-fiction book of the same name which documents the pair's research into sex. Their research centred on the theory that sex could lead to more intimate feelings which they attempted to test whilst monitoring and observing couples in coitus.

127 Hours Review


Essential
Danny Boyle brings his considerable filmmaking energy to bear on this claustrophobic true story, and the result is a bracing thriller that puts us right into the mind of a man trapped in an unthinkable situation.

In April 2003, adventure sportsman Aron Ralston (Franco) heads into Utah's Blue John Canyon for a day of hiking. He meets two girls (Mara and Tamblyn) along the way, and stops to show them a cool underwater lake. Then he heads on his own into a narrow slit in the earth where a bolder falls and pins his right arm against the wall. Unable to move, he spends the next five days pondering for the first time his own humanity and mortality. And after trying everything imaginable, he only has one option left.

Cloverfield Review


Excellent
We should have seen this coming. Team Cloverfield dropped more than enough hints suggesting they knew what they were doing, from the inspired viral marketing campaign to the seeds of a deeper mythology planted on message boards. But with hype meters peaking, cautiously optimistic fanboys willing to entertain the notion that a good movie could be released in January sharpened swords for a potential backlash.

With apologies to Public Enemy, believe the hype. Cloverfield director Matt Reeves has created an abnormality, a visceral monster movie that doesn't overly concern itself with its actual monster. The filmmaker certainly doesn't go out of his way to show his beast. Not because he doesn't want to, but because he can't. That's not the movie he decided to tell.

Mean Girls Review


Very Good
When I was in high school, I didn't have many friends. Instead, I analyzed the cliques from a distance. I even created a little chart showing where everyone sat in the cafeteria. Seeing a similar map surface about 20 minutes into Mean Girls, I can see the filmmakers and I are starting out on the same page.

Lindsay Lohan stars as new-kid-in-town Cady Heron, fresh from the plains of Africa where her parents have been studying wildlife. When her mother gets a position at Northwestern, it's back to the States where she must attend classes like everyone else. Customary first-day humiliation ensues.

Mean Girls Review


OK

The stinging wit of first-time screenwriter Tina Fey -- acerbic co-host of Weekend Update on "Saturday Night Live," and the show's head writer -- gives "Mean Girls" a zest and zing few high school comedies ever muster.

An outwardly stereotypical teen movie about the new girl in school (Lindsay Lohan) being torn between arty out-crowd real friends who initially welcome her and the catty, curvy, callous queen bees of the campus, who covet her knockout looks to bolster their ranks, it's a flick with a surprisingly subversive nature: Cady (Lohan) begins socially canoodling with the elitist "plastics" not because she wants to be popular, but because she wants to help bring them down.

Invited into the "cool" clique by Barbie-doll blonde Regina (Rachel McAdams, "The Hot Chick") and her clingy cohorts (Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried), Cady reports back on their "Heathers"-like cruelty to her outcast pals, Janis the coal-eyed punker chick (Lizzy Caplan) and Damian the big, burly, proudly queeny teddy bear (Daniel Franzese).
