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

    Jason Bateman Has A 'Disconnect' & Joins 'The Longest Week' With Olivia Wilde

    There are probably no two busier people right now in Hollywood than Jason Bateman and Olivia Wilde -- except for maybe Bryan Cranston -- but we like 'em both so no complaints from us, though their choice of upcoming projects does give us pause.
