I had every intention of doing an Ice Bucket Challenge video, but at the time, I was in neck deep in making a movie… and I still am.

Last time on Fun with Google Autocomplete, we learned that Americans were bad at history and distinguishing between fantasy and reality. This time, we see that Google is doing a great job of anticipating our concerns about the NFL and their most notorious players. Read the rest of this entry
If the trailer isn’t evidence enough, Mr. Mom is positively dripping with 1980s situational comedy. It’s even got three 80s powerhouse names: John Hughes, Martin Mull and Teri Garr. It couldn’t be any more 80s unless He-Man was in it riding a flat nosed skateboard while singing "Thriller." Read the rest of this entry
