Every film is a cultural artifact. As singular works of art, movies are their own self-contained contributions to popular culture, but their often essential inclusion of things like music, fashion, and slang within their own narratives puts them into a unique space – art wrapped around art, culture enveloped in culture. It’s why even bad period-set films are so fun to watch, as seeing canny cultural representations is almost always amusing, if not a bit intriguing. Blame it on nostalgia, shared memory, or even a good old-fashioned affection for otherwise forgotten pop culture snippets, but movies that work hard to accurately depict a time period or an era always have an extra it of built-in entertainment.
'SNL' alum Dana Carvey swung by 'The Tonight Show' the other night, and host Jimmy Fallon couldn't resist asking the funnyman to do some impressions -- with a twist, of course. Using not one, but two "Wheel of Impression" spinners, Fallon determined who Carvey would imitate and what he would talk about. Too bad those things seemed weighted towards Al Pacino. Now that's weird, wild stuff.
Acid-tongued comedienne Joan Rivers recently stirred up a little bit of trouble when she walked out of an on-air interview after taking issue with the supposedly "negative" host (who was asking Rivers - who makes her bread and butter by making fun of people - about the negativity in her act and her latest book)
College is a time of exploration, adventure and self-discovery. For some people, that means "doing drugs." Even your new best friend Jenny Slate, star of this summer's charming and daring 'Obvious Child,' turned to marijuana during her college years, and the results were pretty mixed, as she shared with Seth Meyers on last night's 'Late Night.'
Jimmy Fallon's love for turning basic drinking games into outsized (often, quite literally) versions of themselves is well documented, but the 'Tonight Show' host just might have reached the apex of his drinking game adoration when he challenged Pitbull (Mr. Worldwide, please) to a round of Giant Duff Beer Pong. Wait, why Duff? Because Fallon and his show have been camped out at Universal Studios in Orlando all week, and yes, this game is all about Duff Beer, the favorite fictional beer of 'The Simpsons.'
'The Tonight Show' is down in Orlando for the week, and although the 'Harry Potter' theme park they overtook is packed with families, it's really for the kids, because it doesn't seem as if any of the parents in attendance have ever even picked up a book. Need proof? Jimmy Fallon sent out a writer to quiz some park-goers (no kids!) about some basic 'Potter' trivia, and the results were kind of dismal.
Back in 2011, Jimmy Kimmel pranked NBA star Metta World Peace (then known as Ron Artest) so completely that Metta (Mr. World Peace?) must have always had his guard up from that day on. That kind of attitude could have served him well recen
'The Tonight Show' is down in Orlando, Florida, this week, camped out at the Universal Studios backlot for some road-tripping fun, and all the better to serve up some exciting sneak peeks at the theme park's newly expanded Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Jimmy Fallon decided to really get into the spirit of things, dragging his faithful announcer Steve Higgins over to Diagon Alley to pick out some shiny new wizarding wands from master wand shop Ollivanders.
