    The Change-Up

    No one wants to be the one to raise his hand and be so uncool as to say “I’m offended,” but I’m willing to take that risk after seeing The Change-Up. I’ve tried to make my peace with what I call The New Vulgarity, as Hollywood has jumped on the R-rated comedy ...

    Point Counter-Point Review: 'The Change-Up' Is Gross-Out Unfunny Or Messy But With Amusing Laughs

    “The Change-Up” is nothing if not honest. Before the title card has even popped up on screen, Jason Bateman, playing a stressed out husband, father, and (pivotally) lawyer, gets poop sprayed onto his face and, seconds later, into his mouth. It’s a very gross gag very early on and sets the stage for ...

    'Green Lantern' Sequel May Ditch Early Story Outlines And Start From Scratch

    Just Like Audiences Worldwide, WB Reportedly Not Happy With Martin Campbell's DirectionThere is nothing about a prospective "Green Lantern 2" that doesn't reek of flop sweat. DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are scuffling in their race against Marvel/themselves to develop a new chain of franchises based on comic book characters, and the performance of "GL" this summer has certainly hurt momentum. With "The Dark Knight Rises" pegged for next summer and "The Man Of Steel" after that, they're going to want to diversify, lest the studio be forced to greenlight a bunch of actual real movies with interesting original characters not made to sell Ha...

    David Dobkin Says 'The Change-Up' Isn't Exactly 'Face/Off' Or 'Freaky Friday'

    CGI Babies, The Freedom Of The R-Rating & More We Learned From Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds About the Body-Switching ComedyThis weekend sees the release of another candidate for the R-rated comedy of the summer: bro-rific body-switcheroo film “The Change-Up.” Starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, the story centers on two friends living polar opposite lives; Bateman as Dave, a family man and lawyer on the rise, and Reynolds as Mitch, his best friend, who makes a meager living as an actor, but mostly uses his charisma and physique to bang anything with two legs. After a night of drinking the two friends -- ahem -- relieve themselves, in w...

    Jodie Foster Courted To Join Ryan Reynolds & Jeff Bridges In 'R.I.P.D.'?

    After many years of worthy, middlebrow would-be-Oscar pictures and my-daughter-is-in-peril films, it finally seems like Jodie Foster is ready to have fun again. Playing a character described as "a magnificent c**t" in Spike Lee's "Inside Man" seems to have loosened the Oscar-winning actress up a bit...

    Weekend Box-Office: Is 'Green Lantern' The End Of The Superhero Gravy Train?

    Perspective is necessary. $53 million is a whole lotta money. $53 million could buy several houses, it could feed many people, it could save lives. $53 million is also a pretty good opening for a somewhat higher-budgeted film, provided advertising isn’t through the roof and there aren’t a massive am...

    Review: 'Green Lantern' Is A Tale Of Good Versus Evil For Dummies

    Why are superhero and comic book movies so popular? It may be the comfort of believing there is a clear distinction between “good” and “bad” people, that “good” isn’t such an abstract notion within one’s identity and bad, in itself, is an unchanging, sometimes unstoppable force. There is poetry in t...

    Mark Romanek Says He's Already Turned Down 'The Wolverine'

    Ryan Reynolds Confirms 'Deadpool' Will Be 'Nasty,' 'Hard' And 'Cheap'Showing a remarkable amount of diplomacy, director Mark Romanek has confirmed, as reported a few weeks back, that he was a contender for Fox's already-troubled "The Wolverine" but that he has long since turned down the opportunity. Speaking about the Marvel sequel, he tells DigitalSpy, "That's just one of those stories that floated around. I was on their list, I received the script months ago. It didn't seem like my kind of thing." Given that Romanek is a picky and sometimes prickly director, one who famously bailed on his only other big studio assignment merely weeks before...
