'The To Do List' red-band trailer: 'Tea bagging? Must be British' -- NSFW VIDEO

Aubrey Plaza plays Brandy Clark, and Brandy Clark really wants to get laid. That’s the basic, umm, thrust of the latest trailer for The Do List, which is NSFW for a plethora of vulgar language and raw sexual innuendo. It’s the ’90s and all your favorite people are here: Donald Glover, Rachel Bilson, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Connie Britton, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Alia Shawkat, and Scott Porter, as the sexual peak of the movie’s plot-long sexual mountain.

Warning! Watching this trailer is likely to a) make you have skorts-related nightmares; and b) sing Salt ‘N’ Pepa under your breath for the rest of the day.

'Grown Ups 2' trailer: This time with more nudity and hot cheerleaders -- VIDEO

The Grown Ups 2 trailer leaves us with many questions. Is this the most method Taylor Lautner has ever been? Why does Kevin James wear a towel over his shoulders when the rest of his body is supposed to be naked? Could we have gone our entire lives without hearing David Spade yelling ”I was inside you” to Kevin James?

One thing’s for certain, someone’s been reading our dream diaries with this whole The Lonely Island and Taran Killam washing-a-car-in-cheerleading-uniforms thing.

Watch the trailer below:

Andy Samberg on hosting the Spirit Awards and what's up his (ripped-off) sleeve

With the Film Independent Spirit Awards looming on Saturday, Feb. 23 (IFC, 10 p.m), Andy Samberg has been rigorously preparing to shine as the host. Make that rise and shine. “It’s actually filmed at 1:30 in the afternoon, so I’m slowly trying to change my sleep schedule,” says the SNL vet and star of Celeste and Jesse Forever. “Every standup worth his salt will tell you that the best comedy happens at 1:30 p.m., so I’m looking forward to that. Other than that, just trying to eat right, do a lot of crunches and yoga, and get my body and mind right and in tune with one another so I can come out and really dominate the stage, which I’m told is very shallow.”

Keep reading to see what else Samberg told EW about emceeing the indie Oscars. READ FULL STORY

Rashida Jones talks 'Celeste and Jesse Forever' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Warning: Celeste and Jesse Forever may make you cry.

The quirky romantic comedy starring Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg is about two best friends falling out of love with each other and getting divorced, while still trying to remain good friends. “We wanted to show a realistic portrayal about what it’s like to go through a breakup,” said Jones, who in addition to starring in the film co-wrote the script with friend Will McCormack. “And yeah, it’s totally sad. But it’s also weirdly funny.”

Jones discussed with EW her love of classic romantic comedies such as Annie Hall and Broadcast News and how she enjoys that rom-coms can explore the relationship questions of the day, such as when When Harry Met Sally asked if women and men can be “just” friends.

“[I] wanted to see if we could explore a new notion which was, ‘Can you actually go right into being friends with your ex?’” Jones explained. “I feel like I know so many couples who they meet and fall in love right after college and they have that first big adult love. But then they change, and their lives change, and they want their relationships to effect that change and the relationship doesn’t make sense any more. You don’t want to lose them, so what do you do with that relationship? Can you manage to find a way to have them in your life?” READ FULL STORY
