  • -Welcome back, everybody. I'm talking with Melissa McCarthy.

  • Melissa, thanks again for being here.

  • I want to talk about your new movie, "Superintelligence."

  • It's out tomorrow, Thanksgiving Day, on HBO Max.

  • You star in it. You're super funny.

  • Your husband, Ben, directed it.

  • How do we set it up? It's a great plot.

  • -Oh, it's a great -- Our dear friend Steve Mallory wrote it.

  • It is about, an A.I. becomes aware

  • and decides to pick the most average of average people,

  • which is played by me. I play Carol Peters.

  • And he watches me

  • and says that he's going to watch me for three days

  • to see if humans are worth saving

  • or if people are worth saving,

  • because he's like, "You don't take care of the planet.

  • You don't do all these things. Maybe --"

  • And James Corden does the voice.

  • -Oh, he's great. -At one point, he said,

  • "Do I just kind of Clorox wipe the Earth of humans

  • and start over?" -Gosh.

  • -And really, it's about what I would do

  • if I had three more days and I want to make things right

  • with George, who is like my true love that got away,

  • played by Bobby Cannavale.

  • -Oh. -And it's really sweet,

  • it's really funny, and I just -- I really love this movie.

  • I don't know if that's crazy to say --

  • -It's got a lot of heart in it, too,

  • 'cause you go, "Oh, yeah."

  • By the end, you're like, "Come on."

  • It's just well done, well directed,

  • well written, well acted.

  • But I was going to ask you, is it trickier to play

  • kind of taking it down, like, a notch?

  • It's like, "Okay, just go in normally.

  • Like, Melissa, just open the door."

  • Or do you have to go, like, "Well, here's the way I would --

  • If I was being funny, I could open the door --"

  • -There's a scene in the -- It opens the movie.

  • I have a dog in a Babybjorn. -Yep.

  • -Which was like two seconds before we're about to shoot,

  • and I was like [Gasps] "Can I get -- What if we --

  • Can we get a Babybjorn? Can I put the dog in?"

  • Ben's like, "Don't put the dog in a Babybjorn."

  • He's like, "It'll never match. The dogs want to get out.

  • We're gonna be here for six hours."

  • -"We're already over budget now."

  • -He's like, "Yeah, no Babybjorn.

  • We don't have one. We have to start shooting."

  • I'm like, "You got it."

  • He said literally, it's like I spun around,

  • and on the way back, I had a Babybjorn on.

  • He goes, "I don't know where you got it,"

  • but I found a Babybjorn. I put that dog in it.

  • And that dog literally was like,

  • "I'm never going to walk with my own legs again."

  • -"This is paradise." -That dog loved it.

  • -It's so funny, man. Everyone's got to watch it.

  • And your character also enjoys

  • singing the song, "One week since you looked at me,"

  • Barenaked Ladies.

  • How'd you land on that jam?

  • -Well, you know, 'cause it's such a great --

  • I love that song, and it's also a song

  • that, like, everybody thinks they know,

  • but it's almost impossible to sing.

  • -I have the lyrics on my cards here,

  • and I sent it to you through Zoom,

  • if you can see your teleprompter.

  • I thought it'd be fun if we could both try to see

  • how long we can go without messing up.

  • "One Week," by Barenaked Ladies. -It's gonna be short, but --

  • [ Both clear throat ] -Alright, here we go. Ready?

  • [ Clears throat ] -Okay.

  • -1, 2, 3.

  • -♪ It's been one week since you looked at me

  • Cocked your head to the side and said I'm angry

  • Five days since you laughed at me

  • Saying, get that together, come back and see me

  • Three days since the living room

  • ♪ I realized it's all my fault but couldn't tell you

  • Yesterday, you'd forgiven me

  • But it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry

  • Hold it now and watch the hoodwink

  • ♪ I make you stop, think

  • You'll think you're looking at Aquaman

  • ♪ I summon dish to the fish like the Chalet Swiss

  • -♪ I like the sushi 'cause it's never touched a frying pan

  • Chickity China, the Chinese chicken

  • You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin' ♪

  • Watching X-Files with no lights on

  • We're dans la maison, I hope the Smoking Man's in this one

  • Like Harrison Ford ♪ -Yeah, I'll give you that one!

  • Come on.

  • ♪ I hope the Smoking Man's in this one

  • I remember that line. Oh, my gosh.

  • That is fun.

  • Speaking of fun, segue, I want to show a clip.

  • Here's Melissa McCarthy in "Superintelligence."

  • Take a look at this.

  • -Listen, um, I have an AI in my phone.

  • -Yeah, you don't have that. [ Chuckles ]

  • "H-o-o-ope Floats"! -I do.

  • -Okay, Carol, how did you -- how did you, uh, get in here?

  • -Because the AI that is in my phone

  • bypassed all of your security doors.

  • -Okay, see, you -- [ Groans ] Look, you do not --

  • I'm going to back you up, though,

  • 'cause there's a crazy in your eye that I don't --

  • Little bit. Right -- Right -- There's good.

  • Look, uh, you do not have a AI in your phone, okay?

  • It's probably just a prank or a scam.

  • I keep telling you not to give your information away.

  • Remember you donated to that prince of Zamunda?

  • That's an Eddie Murphy country.

  • You could be getting catfished. Ugh.

  • -I'm not getting catfished,

  • because I have been talking to it.

  • It's been talking to --

  • -Okay. Alright. Okay. We're just --

  • -It's coming through my rice cooker and through other --

  • -[ Laughs ] Really --

  • -Did you go on the dark web?

  • -Emily, I'm not discussing this with you.

  • -Don't answer, don't answer.

  • -Melissa McCarthy! "Superintelligence"

  • is available on HBO Max tomorrow.

-Welcome back, everybody. I'm talking with Melissa McCarthy.
