5. Fight Club for Kids
How do you take an R-rated, hyper-violent cult classic and turn it into something kid-friendly? Make it “Tickle Fight Club.” This animated spoof sets Fight Club in grade-school and is sure to tickle fans of the hardcore original.

Everyone loves Friends. And everyone loves Taylor Swift. So when Taylor Swift brought Lisa Kudrow on stage, in character as Phoebe, to sing “Smelly Cat,” that was pretty much the greatest thing that has ever happened.
3. Banksy Goes to ‘Dismaland’
Enigmatic artist Banksy’s latest creation is “Dismaland,” an attraction designed to look like a Disney theme park’s rotting corpse. If the pictures of it aren’t creepy enough, watch this ad for it. It’s unpleasant, unnerving, and impossible to look away from: everything art should be.
2. Amy and Jen Meet The Piano Man
Amy Schumer was invited on stage at fellow Long Island native Billy Joel’s concert. She brought her new BFF Jennifer Lawrence with her. After doing a kickline with other fans of the Piano Man, they climbed atop his piano and danced to, of course, “Uptown Girl.” We should all have a night like that.
1. Key & Peele Write Gremlins Sequel
1984’s Gremlins was a good time: edgy, scary but still kid-suitable fun. 1990’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch was, shall we say, sorely lacking in the original’s spirit.
What went wrong? Key & Peele have a theory, which is hilarious if you’ve seen the ill-conceived Gremlins 2, and might even be funnier if you haven’t.
