    SXSW Review: 'I Give It A Year' Is A Woefully Inept Deconstruction Of Romantic Comedies

    There's a certain amount of winky irreverence built into "I Give It A Year," based on its title alone, which is something that people snarl, usually at the weddings of people who they feel are fundamentally incompatible. The title suggests that, while it might appear to be a bouncy romantic comedy, ...

    Watch: ‘I Give It A Year’ Premieres Today In U.K.; Teases U.S. With 3 More Clips

    “I Give It A Year” drops today in the U.K., and while U.S. distribution still hasn’t been secured, the rom-com’s SXSW stateside premiere in March should guarantee that someone picks it up. Witha cast of US-friendly faces including Rose Byrne, Anna Faris, Minnie Driver and Sim...

    Watch: Play Christmas Charades In First Clip From Rom-Com 'I Give It A Year' With Rose Byrne & Rafe Spall

    We’re really looking forward to “I Give It a Year,” particularly after the first couple of trailers, which showed a lot of promise and included Minnie Driver uttering the immortal line: “I’d ruin Bieber.” The film will star a whole host of people who are hard not to like, including Stephen Merchant,...

    Watch: Trailer For 'I Give It A Year' With Rose Byrne & Rafe Spall Promises A Rare Decent Rom-Com

    Perhaps no genre of film has as low a rate of return as the romantic comedy. Even horror films have the occasional subversive festival gem to prop up fan interest every so often, but serious fans of the rom-com are reduced to getting their jollies from the amiable, but botched likes of "Crazy Stupid...

    Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson & Director James Wan Will Return For 'Insidious 2'; Film Set For August 2013 Release

    Considering it was one of the most profitable films of 2011 -- $97 million in ticket sales off a paltry 1. $1.5 million budget, that’s a lot of profit-- we’re surprised this wasn’t announced sooner. Rose Byrne, Patrick Wilson and director James Wan will all return to reprise the...

    Rose Byrne Has An 'Internship' With Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn

    Frankly, you could shoot Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn doing their taxes, then mowing the lawn and having a nap, and we'd probably watch it and love it. Those dudes crack us up ("Wedding Crashers" rules, "Starsky & Hutch" is pretty hilarious) so thank God for Shawn Levy (w...

    Rose Byrne & Anna Faris Say 'I Give It A Year'

    We certainly never saw it coming back when he was turning in small but hilarious performances in Edgar Wright's "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz," but in 2012 Rafe Spall is set to become a leading man in a Working Title rom-com. Neither did we imagine that any offspring of T...

    Guest Post: Damages Returns by Serena Donadoni

    The relationship between Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) on Damages has typically been described as that of a mentor and protégé, but itʼs even deeper and thornier. The FX series created by Todd A. Kessler, Glenn Kessler and Daniel Zelman explores one of the most complex female partnerships on television: an almost maternal bond super-charged by ambition. From the first episode, itʼs clear that as an attorney, Ellen wants to be Patty – she tries to emulate her ferocity and single-minded devotion to that all- important case – but doesnʼt literally want to step into her shoes (this isnʼt All About Eve). Despite fissur...
