This is what happens when you an interview a celebrity and haven't watched their movie

Film actors do prefer it if you’ve seen their movie, before you interview them about it. To be fair to film companies, they do try to ensure that’s possible, by offering private, embargoed screenings to film journalists. Of course, for non-specialist journalists, it might be harder to fit that into their schedules, particularly if they’re a local news reporter and they can’t get to the screening.

Here’s just one example of what happens when a celeb finds out they haven’t seen their movie – in this case, it’s Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader torturing Denver entertainment reporter Chris Parente. He should just be glad it wasn’t Harrison Ford.

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
