Illness can't stop Jeffrey Dean Morgan from talking about 'Rampage'

Both TV and film audiences know that Jeffrey Dean Morgan can play tough guys. There are few characters on television now – or ever – who is a much of a switch hitter as Morgan is playing the bat-swinging Negan on "The Walking Dead." This goes along with hard-charging characters who should have a bad asterisk by their name from films like "The Losers," "Watchmen" and "Red Dawn."

Movie review: Offensively bad 'Super Troopers 2' shows Broken Lizard hasn't aged well

Like many of a certain age, I was a fan of Broken Lizard's 2001 stoner cop cult classic "Super Troopers," which circulated smoky dorm rooms in the early 2000s. The energetic, silly and wordy comedy of the then-unknown troupe was absurd, naughty and endlessly quotable. Coming 17 years later, the crowdfunded sequel "Super Troopers 2" is a whole lot more of the same, resplendent mustaches and all. But have I grown up? Or is it that Broken Lizard hasn't? Because the second time around is an exercise in diminishing returns.

'I Feel Pretty' review: Amy Schumer's fable about fat-shaming is frankly depressing

In a 2015 sketch aired on Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer," the one called "New Body," Schumer played a woman shopping for a wardrobe for the body she's always wanted. The clothing store clerk, thin and deadpan, is the perfect foil for Schumer's chipper, play-along reactions. With those two perfect minutes you don't realize the first time through how much Schumer and her writers are actually saying about the culture's omnipresent assault on female self-image.
