    Interview: John C. Reilly Talks The Hardships Of Being A Guidance Counselor In 'Terri'

    High school is painfully dull, incredibly awkward, and definitely not what teen-comedies make them out to be. Sure there are parties and sex, but as far as the day-to-day routine goes, it's less like "American Pie" and more in tune with the "Elephant" (well, at least the film's first two thirds…) Ma...

    So, just how similar are Ivan Reitman's "No Strings Attached" and Will Gluck's "Friends With Benefits"?

    'Captain America' Gets Terrible New PosterLet's rewind the clock a bit. Last summer, a rumor cropped up that Marvel had a plan to make live-action short films as a way to introduce the characters to audiences who may not be familiar with them — pretty much everyone who's not an avid comic book reader. The this bit info was notable, because just a few weeks earlier word was being knocked around that Marvel was planning to make lower budget movies centered around their second and their tier characters like Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, Ka-Zar, Power Pack & Luke Cage -- in essence, a short film introduction seemed like a good way to go to get mainstre...

    The film opens next week, but Q-Tip has thus far continued to stand by his decision to not support it, and hasn't done any publicity for it either, leaving that up to his partners in crime, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Jarobi White, who have all gotten behind director Michael Rapaport's dire...
