A cheerleading captain wakes up after two decades in a coma and decides to go back to high school in order to finish her Senior Year. If you have not watched Deep Impact, I suggest turning on HBO Max and watching the disaster thriller. If you don’t have HBO Max, please feel free to rent the movie. Otherwise, there will be Deep Impact spoilers during this film. It’s not a major part of the film…"Senior Year: Rebel Wilson Comedy Has Heart"

Sam Richardson crushes it throughout the entirety of The Afterparty and deserves every accolade for his performance. Chicago improvisers have a few routes. They can stay in Chicago or move to New York or Los Angeles. Comedians moving to New York are the ones who take gigs at Saturday Night Live or the late night talk shows. But for those moving to LA, it’s to try to make it in film or television. After appearances…"Sam Richardson Crushes It In The Afterparty"
Launching on January 28 with its first three episodes, The Afterparty is one of the best new comedy series to arrive this year. My interest is automatically piqued whenever I hear that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are attached to a new project. Knowing their previous work, it also comes with an incredibly high bar of expectations. This comedy series is no exception especially with the talented cast. What I love about it isn’t just…"The Afterparty: One Of The Best New Comedy Series"
Sam Richardson and Ben Schwartz spoke with Solzy at the Movies last week about Lord Miller’s new Apple TV+ series, The Afterparty. Richardson stars as Aniq while Schwartz stars as Yasper. It’s so much fun watching these talented improvisers throughout the series. If you like romantic comedies or movie musicals, the duo get to star in one of their own. I’ve seen the first seven episodes so far and can’t wait to see what happens…"Sam Richardson, Ben Schwartz talk The Afterparty"
The Tomorrow War might not star Will Smith but this sci-fi action film is in the same vein as previous Independence Day releases. As oddly as it sounds, The Tomorrow War is just the type of escapist entertainment we need coming out on the other side of the pandemic. Time travelers travel back in time from 2051 to disrupt a World Cup soccer game and give Earth an urgent message: a deadly alien species is…"The Tomorrow War Would Make Will Smith Proud"
Werewolves Within is a whodunit horror-comedy set in a small town and this film is just as hysterical, albeit scarier, as Knives Out. “Listening is where love begins. Listening to ourselves and then our neighbors.” – Mr. Rogers A Fred Rogers quote probably isn’t the first thing one would think of when it comes to this film. But as far as on-screen quotes go, it’s not as way out there as one would think. That being said,…"Werewolves Within – Tribeca 2021"
Hooking Up manages to hit all the familiar romantic comedy beats while finding a way to freshen up the genre in the film. Darla Beene (Brittany Snow) isn’t your typical writer for a lifestyle magazine. No, the “Oprah of orgasms” is a sex addict. It just so happens that her court-ordered sex addict support group shares a building with a cancer support group. This is how Darla meets Bailey Brighton (Sam Richardson). While the diagnosis…"Hooking Up Hits Familiar Beats With Fresh Story"
If there’s a film that you should go into without watching a trailer or reading reviews, Promising Young Woman is that film. The large majority of filmgoers will have until mid-April December before they can see this film. As a result, I’m going to be extra careful in writing about this film. It’s a film that ought to be treated like that of a Marvel or Star Wars film. Go into it knowing very little…"Sundance 2020: Promising Young Woman"
Maribeth Monroe, Sam Richardson, Stephanie Laing, and Dave Hill sat down during the 2019 Sundance Film Festival to discuss Bootstrapped, an Indie Episodic. Unfortunately, series creator and star Danielle Uhlarik was unable to make the trip due to her pregnancy. Bootstrapped is a very funny pilot set in Kansas City. The pilot alone features so many alumni of the Chicago and Detroit improv families in minor and cameo roles–including Brad Morris, Andy St. Clair, Jaime…"Sundance 2019: Bootstrapped Interview"
