    Even the combined adorability and charm of Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski and Colin Egglesfield can't seem to pull any love from reviews of this relationship comedy about a young woman who falls in love with her best friend's fiance, which will only suffer by comparison to the recent ...

    Most comedians, once they're anointed stars, use their newfound fame to sign on to seemingly dozens of projects, reaching a kind of overexposure in speedy time. After the success of "The 40 Year Old Virgin," it seemed as though Steve Carell was heading that way, with the likes of "Evan Almighty" and "Get Smart," roles that could have been filled by any comic star, clogging up his big screen appearances.

    Check Out This Cool New Film Noirish Poster For Congolese Thriller "Viva Riva!"

    I'm loving this brand new poster for Djo Tunda Wa Munga's Congo-Kinshasa-set crime thriller, Viva Riva - a film I saw and reviewed enthusiastically earlier this year (calling it a pulsating look at a post-war city), and which will be released here in the USA this summer - just next month actually.
