Giving a Friend a Helping–and Painfully Insightful–Hand

There were five claps in the ‘Friends’ theme song, right?

Anyways, ‘Friends’ ended in 2004 yet its shining pop cultural legacy continues to be as bright as its original run beginning in the nostalgic, distant yesteryear of 1994.

One of those real-life friends is Matt LeBlanc who played the non-real-life “How you doin’?” goofball ladies man Joey Tribbiani. And despite his current CBS sitcom ‘Man with a Plan,’ it’s been a while since he’s returned to his beloved character. He played a hilariously obnoxious version of himself in ‘Episodes’ with ‘Friends’ alums David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik, but that’s not enough.

Maybe it was four claps in “I’ll Be There for You”?

While we will never be treated to a ‘Friends’ reunion–just the harsh reality of a fictional world–we should take a minute to enjoy any brief return visits related to the hit show when they come to us.

Speaking of which, Matt LeBlanc just appeared on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.’

Talk about the ultimate friendly slap bet.

Tune into tonight’s ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ to see the full interview with Matt LeBlanc at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Merry Christmas!

‘Tis the season to celebrate the birth of Christ.

‘Tis the season to celebrate being with the ones we love.

And ‘Tis the season to watch those classic Christmas movies alongside family.

The following clip from 1990 cinematic magic known as ‘Home Alone’–masterfully created by director Chris Columbus and screenwriter John Hughes–sparked great laughter from kids and adults alike this evening.

That’s what you call a money clip.

Yup…still got it.

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! 

A Noisy Cricket Told Me About a New MIB Trailer

‘Tis the season for…’90s nostalgia?

Yesterday, it was Google’s fantastic modern recreation of Kevin McCallister’s ‘Home Alone’ plan that brought us all back to that 1990 Chris Columbus classic. Today, it’s Sony Pictures Entertainment that released–a matter of minutes ago–the first trailer for this summer’s latest throwback adventure.

Admittedly, there is no Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones in sight, which is hard not to see in this film series. Regardless, franchise newcomers Chris Hemsworth (comedic role in ‘Ghostbuster’s remake) and Tessa Thompson (‘Westworld’) are teaming up again like in 2017s ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ just with a more sophisticated style.

Oh, and add in Liam Neeson and Emma Thompson for good measure.

We’ll be able to see what ‘Men in Black: International’ is made of this summer.

P.S. The Thor hammer bit at the end of the trailer was a fantastic ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ tie-in. 

Kevin’s Wireless Plan Guarantees You’re Never Home Alone

If you Google “greatest commercial ever,” then this brand new video will be the top result. Just give it a couple days.

1990 nostalgia gold for the win.

Well played, Google and Kevin McCallister…well played!
