    Tribeca Review: Morgan Spurlock's Crowd-Pleasing 'Mansome' Is Cute, But Unilluminating

    What makes a man shave his chest? Sport a hirsute, ridiculously long and absurd-looking beard?

    Jason Bateman Out, Jennifer Aniston In For 'We're The Millers'; Jason Sudeikis Also Eyeing Role

    Melissa McCarthy & Jason Bateman's 'Identity Thief' Steals May 10, 2013 Release Date

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. With "Bridesmaids" arriving in theaters on May 13th last year and becoming one of the biggest comedies of 2011, and suprisingly, an awards season player, Universal isn't rocking the boat with the next big Melissa McCarthy comedy.

    While everyone likes to trumpet the summer success stories of "The Hangover Part II" and "Bridesmaids," one other R-rated comedy fared quite well also, though it hasn't been mentioned as often. "Horrible Bosses" was also a super-sized smash, with the workplace comed...
