    Review, "Last Night": Keira Knightley In An Enjoyable Little Romance

    From its long delay in getting here, you’d expect the 2009 Keira Knightley romantic drama, Last Night, to be a disaster, but not at all. It’s merely small and slight, the kind of blithe little relationship film that feels more European than American.

    Jim Carrey Latest Big Star To Join Season Finale Of 'The Office'

    It may have suffered somewhat in recent seasons from a dip in form, especially compared to the superior nature of most of the rest of the NBC comedy line-up -- "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock" -- but for the most part, we've immensely enjoyed the last seven seasons of "The Office." While it may not be as near-flawless as the BBC series on which it was based, it's remained remarkably consistent across over ten times the length, thanks to a star-making performance from lead Steve Carell, and one of the deepest, richest comedic ensembles around, one that's helped to launch names like John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms, a...

    Watch: Paul Rudd As A Lovable Stoner In 'Our Idiot Brother' Trailer

    If you weren't one of the lucky few who made it out to Park City a few months ago, this past week has been a good time to get a taste of what you missed.

    Updated: Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst Won't Re-Team On New Project 'Secret Door'

    Update: Sorry, Coppola fans, looks like we've been had by a hoaxer. When we ran the story yesterday, the account looked genuine enough, but subsequent tweets were more suspicious, in particular 8 pages of script 'leaked' onto the account, 8 pages of some of the worst writing we've ever seen (Sample:...

    Elvis Mitchell Ankles Movieline: Why?

    Elvis Mitchell is such a fascinating, complicated character that he deserves a mini-series. I am not kidding. I could have predicted--would have placed bets--that he wouldn't last as film critic at Movieline, that it was a bad match--mainly because Mitchell is not internet savvy. To succeed online, you have to be able to interact with your readers on Twitter and Facebook, market yourself, have an instinct for building traffic for your stories. Mention Twitter to Mitchell and his eyes go blank. Why did he go there as co-chief film critic with ex-Salon scribe Stephanie Zacharek? For the money. Well, the trouble with making a hefty sala...
