    Charlie Kaufman's Ambitious Meta-Musical 'Frank Or Francis' Is Not Dead, But It Has Been Postponed

    What To Expect When You’re Expecting—movie review

    I’m as susceptible as anyone to watching highly attractive people onscreen, which this movie has in abundance, but it took time for 'What to Expect When You’re Expecting' to win me over.

    Watch: Trailer For 'Star Trek' Writer Alex Kurtzman's Directorial Debut 'People Like Us,' With Chris Pine, Elizabeth Banks & Michelle Pfieffer

    We're only about a month away from the start of the summer movie season, and the onslaught of noisy effects-heavy pictures that come with it.
