  • -My first guest tonight is

  • an Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actor.

  • She directed and stars in the new movie "Moxie,"

  • which is streaming now on Netflix.

  • You have to watch it. It is so good.

  • Here is Amy Poehler!

  • Ah, that's what I'm talking about.

  • See? Ah, I missed you, buddy. So good to see you.

  • -Hi! Hi, Jimmy. I'm so happy to be here.

  • -I want to get into "Moxie"

  • and what a great job you did directing that.

  • But it was so great to see you hosting the Golden Globes.

  • You were fantastic. You were so funny.

  • You looked great.

  • But I know, from hosting these awards shows,

  • it is a lot of work.

  • I can't imagine what it was like hosting one during a pandemic.

  • -Yeah, you know what it's like.

  • There's a lot of things that can go wrong.

  • And I had -- It was interesting,

  • 'cause I had, like, new stress dreams.

  • You know, usually, your dreams are that

  • you're going to, you know, say the wrong thing

  • or you're gonna, you know, fall.

  • But I kept having these, like, technological stress dreams

  • that, you know, was just going to disappear.

  • Just like bloop!

  • -Like, bad edit-- Like, the audio going out or something

  • or people cutting to the wrong camera?

  • -Mm! All those.

  • Like, basically like a living Zoom nightmare

  • is what I was having.

  • -But it was kind of -- It was like a Kubrick film,

  • because every -- The audience was masked and quiet

  • and spread out and just kind of staring at us.

  • -Wowsers.

  • It's a lot, a lot, a lot of work.

  • And, man, I can't --

  • On behalf of everyone who saw it, thank you so much.

  • Like a lot of people during this past year,

  • I've heard that you've gotten into TikTok.

  • Is that right? -Yeah. Big-time.

  • -Whoa! -Big Tok.

  • -Talk to me. -Big-time.

  • -Really?

  • -Well, you know what I do like about it a lot?

  • Is that I like that it takes an idea, audio,

  • and it kind of -- You know, like,

  • people just decide how they're going to deconstruct something.

  • And so I like that, you know,

  • a joke just keeps getting done

  • and then change into something else

  • or the pastiche of it all.

  • Someone takes someone's audio and someone's video

  • and then comments.

  • -It just, like -- It feels very D.I.Y.

  • And then, speaking of the Golden Globes,

  • I saw La'Ron Hines, the great, sweet La'Ron Hines,

  • who is, like, a TikTok star, dare I say.

  • And he interviews kids at his mom's daycare in Mississippi.

  • And we ended up having him on the Golden Globes.

  • -Isn't that cool?

  • That's amazing that you -- I loved that part.

  • That was great. That's wild. -Yeah. Thank you.

  • -I did -- I'm doing more TikToks.

  • But I did my first one,

  • and I want to say it took me like three hours to do.

  • I go...

  • -Yeah, I don't do any. I don't do any.

  • I don't. I don't add any value to TikTok.

  • I just watch it and go, "Good for him.

  • She's right." -Right?

  • That's good. You got to love it.

  • -I'm like, "Oh, that's what that button does."

  • Stuff like that.

  • That's what TikTok helps me with.

  • "Oh, that's how I can clean my sink."

  • -Yeah! That's what I -- Dude, I love the hacks.

  • -Show me a better way to fold my chip bag,

  • and you got me for life.

  • -Dude, what's this thing about frying cheese?

  • I never knew that you -- If you fry cheese, like, really thin,

  • you can use that as kind of like the bread almost.

  • -Oh, boy, that's gonna -- -No, it's insane.

  • I've already -- I was just watching it.

  • -What if I just -- I immediately ran out of frame,

  • and you started -- You heard the sizzling sound of cheese.

  • -Look, I know you as a great comedian, a writer, an actor.

  • And I know you directed,

  • but now you directed your second movie, "Moxie."

  • It is on Netflix now. It is fantastic.

  • And I just want to say I love it,

  • because I have two girls now.

  • And I don't know -- I'm also a coming-of-age-movie fan.

  • But I don't know if there is a movie

  • that's kind of like this movie,

  • that's for girls, where -- It's for everybody,

  • I mean, but I feel like there's nothing out there

  • for my girls to watch where they go like,

  • "Oh, yeah, that's an awesome message."

  • That is so cool. I just loved it.

  • I thought it was well-done, top to bottom.

  • -Thank you very much.

  • I mean, we grew up with the same movies, right?

  • So, I always loved those high-school movies that had,

  • you know, kind of the quiet female protagonist,

  • like Molly Ringwald, if you will,

  • who was watching the action

  • and trying to figure out how to participate in it.

  • And, you know, the book that it was based on is, you know,

  • written by a high-school teacher.

  • And we really wanted it to feel like

  • what high school feels like -- high stakes, big feelings.

  • -It really is high stakes.

  • I mean, when you're --

  • especially when you're in high school.

  • It's like, you don't -- Now we're older,

  • I don't think about that, but you're like,

  • "Oh, no, no, this is the biggest thing in the world."

  • -Oh, big-time.

  • I mean I have a feeling you and I

  • had very similar high-school experiences.

  • I mean, I don't know about you,

  • but I had a big high school, lots of different groups.

  • -Yeah.

  • -You really had to kind of declare who you were.

  • There was a lot of lists.

  • Like, a lot of superlatives --

  • like, inappropriate superlatives.

  • -Yeah, I'm trying to think of what I can even say anymore.

  • But yeah. -I know, you can't.

  • Like, I know we had, like, Class Flirt

  • and Best Couple and Best Eyes and Cutest.

  • And it was like, "God!

  • Why don't you just put Nice Rack on there and call it a day."

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -That's what I won!

  • -You got Nice Rack?! -Yeah, in high school.

  • That was me. -Congratulations!

  • -Thank you. I was excited.

  • I'll take what I can get, though.

  • -You had a really nice rack on your car,

  • on the top of your car?

  • -Like, horns and stuff.

  • It wasn't real animal, of course.

  • -Yeah, it was a nice rack. It should win.

  • -Can you tell everyone what "Moxie" is about?

  • -Sure. So, it's -- "Moxie" is about a 16-year-old girl

  • who is trying to figure out how she fits into her high school.

  • She has a mom who is a more extroverted, rebel-girl past.

  • And she doesn't know how to speak up

  • and speak out against the things that are bothering her

  • and that are dangerous in her school.

  • So she gets inspired by a zine and she makes one

  • and she leaves it in her school.

  • And it's taken over by the other women in the school.

  • And together, they try to bring the system down.

  • -I want to show everyone a clip.

  • Here's Amy Poehler in her new movie, "Moxie."

  • Take a look at this.

  • -Me and my friends, we protested everything.

  • One time, someone told our friend Sarah

  • that she smelled, and none of us showered for two weeks.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • Yeah.

  • -But how do you know what to do,

  • like, how to protest something?

  • -We didn't.

  • You know, we made a ton of mistakes.

  • We argued with each other.

  • We weren't intersectional enough.

  • We called our meetings pow-wows.

  • -Oh, no. -Mm-hmm.

  • -But you're glad you did it all, right?

  • -Of course.

  • What are you going to do? Nothing?

  • -Amy Poehler, everybody!

  • "Moxie" is streaming now on Netflix.

  • By the way, congrats on it being

  • the number-1 movie on Netflix, bud.

  • That's the way to do it. -How cool?

  • -That is the way to do it, Amy Poehler!

-My first guest tonight is
