    Review: ‘The Watch’ Is A Lifeless Sci-Fi Comedy With Moments Of Spirited Improv

    From the outside, 20th Century Fox's comedy "The Watch" seems to have its cup runneth over with the talent at its disposal. The film stars the quartet of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and celebrated British director/writer/comedian Richard Ayoade (director of “Submarine”). It's directed by A...

    Ben Stiller & Jonah Hill Say 'Aloha'

    Ben Stiller is sort of the comedy version of Brad Pitt, in the sense that if he enjoys the experience of working with someone on one project, chances are he'll do it again. And he seems to have found that in Jonah Hill. The actor first popped up in a little cameo in "Night at the Museum: Ba...

    EW Lists '50 Greatest Movies You've Never Seen'... Made After 1991

    Entertainment Weekly has compiled a list of the "50 Greatest Movies You've Never Seen." The list only spans the past two decades, which is unfortunate because, chances are, many of the 50 greatest films you haven't seen were made before 1992...

    It was just yesterday that we were wondering when 20th Century Fox was going to get the marketing ball rolling on "The Watch," the comedy starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. The tragic killing of Trayvon Martin made selling a movie about a rogue neighborhood ...

    So, Ben Stiller Pretty Much Made Sure Todd Louiso's 'The Marc Pease Experience' Didn't Get A Proper Release

    You would think that a comedy starring Ben Stiller, Jason Schwartzman and Anna Kendrick would be a no brainer for some kind of a release, even if modest, but back in 2009, "The Marc Pease Experience" was unceremoniously dumped on ten screens for one week only (and not even in standard rele...

    Review: 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted' Is Surprisingly Satisfying And Frantically Fun (If Wildly Uneven)

    The "Madagascar" franchise, with its skeletal, if somewhat clever plot mechanics (animals from the Central Park zoo are mistakenly shipped to exotic lands – first Madagascar, then Africa proper – all the while longing for their urban environments), and characters almost exclusively defined by outdat...

    There Goes The 'Neighborhood Watch' In New Red Band Trailer With Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill & More

    Partly due to the Trayvon Martin case and also because their hands are already full with "Prometheus," which comes out a month before, Fox has been kind of quiet on "Neighborhood Watch." Until now. They've dropped a foul-mouthed and pretty fucking hilarious red band trailer f...

    Kathryn Hahn Joins Ben Stiller In 'The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty'

    Though already quite funny on his own, Ben Stiller has always been very smart about surrounding himself with other top-shelf players, not only taking the entire pressure of carrying a movie off his shoulders, but earning big comic rewards from the chemistry of collaboration. And that is certainly be...

    Will Ferrell Is 'The Flamingo Thief'

    When Will Ferrell goes the dramedy route, wives have not always done him well. In last year's "Everything Must Go," an impending divorce found his character fully embracing his alcoholism while in Woody Allen's "Melinda & Melinda" (an underrated movie and performance)...

    Ben Stiller Heads To HBO To Produce, Direct & Star In Jonathan Safran Foer-Penned Comedy Pilot 'All Talk'

    We're reaching something of a watershed moment when it comes to the divide between TV and film. While the likes of "The Sopranos" and "The Wire" have seen the small screen gain more and more prestige over the last decade, and names like Martin Scorsese and Michael Mann have l...
