    Keira Knightley's "Last Night" Opens, the Weekend's Best Romance

    Like so many megastars, Keira Knightley drops into a little indie now and then, but unlike so many she has chosen well. Last Night is a slight but charming romantic drama about a married couple (Knightley and Sam Worthington) who, during one night apart, are tempted by her dashing French ex-boyfrien...

    Vince Vaughn Will 'Lay The Favorite' With Stephen Frears

    It's a been a while since Vince Vaughn truly stepped outside his comfort zone. Oh sure, he was very briefly in "Into The Wild," but for the past decade he's been phoning it in with films like "The Break Up," "Fred Claus," "Couples Retreat" and this year's "The Dilemma," so color us very pleasantly s...

    Judy McGrath has been with MTV practically since its inception, and yesterday, after 30 years she abruptly resigned as the chairwoman and chief executive of MTV Networks. I can't remember a time when McGrath didn't set the tone at MTV which in turn set the tone for two generations of pop culture an...

    Review: 'Daydream Nation' Is An Emo, Teenage Angst Mixtape & An Insufferable Afterschool Special

    Featuring a dreamy indie-rock soundtrack that quickly turns sour, a sense of disenfranchised teenage romanticism that curdles under its own emo, twee-ness and some occasionally charming performances and admittedly clever quips, the indie film, “Daydream Nation” can’t hide the fact that it is absolutely callow -- riddled with vapid coming-of-age cliches expressed first and foremost by a rather painful voice-over and endless slo-motion music-video montages. Directed and written by Canadian filmmaker Michael Goldbach (co-writer of Don McKellar’s "Childstar"), the tedious and cloying picture reads and sounds like the diary of a deluded and guilel...

    In 1995, Tupac Shakur Wrote A Screenplay; In 2011, It's Been Acquired For Production

    Hmm... very interesting... I'm very well aware that he was multi-talented, but I had no idea Tupac Shakur wrote a screenplay; the only one he ever penned. And, the rights to that screenplay have been acquired by a production team planning to make a filmed version of it.

    Review: 'Something Borrowed' Is Something Truly Awful

    From its empty soul to its poorly framed shots ready for pan-and-scan conversion, “Something Borrowed” seems primed to play on Saturday afternoons on E!, sandwiched between reruns of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Bridalplasty.” Based on the chick-lit hit of the same name by Emily Giffin, th...

    Remembering Jackie Cooper

    I feel as if I’ve known Jackie Cooper my whole life. Like many baby boomers, I grew up on a daily diet of The Little Rascals (originally known as Our Gang) on television, and also watched reruns of his 1950s TV series The People’s Choice, which I liked because it featured a dog named Cleo who “talke...

    Soon, Tina Fey will have to slow down long enough to give birth, but until then she's wildly busy. Last night she was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, appearing with Amy Poehler in a very funny Jersey Shore satire callled Jersey Floor, (watch it here) along with plugging her bestselling book...
