    'Chipmunks 2' & 'Doctor Doolittle' Helmer Betty Thomas Eyes 'Desperados' With Isla Fisher

    With "The Hangover" proving to studios that an R-rated comedy can bring in the big bucks, executives are now trying the concept with a female twist. "Bridesmaids" -- which recently unspooled at SXSW and met our expectations head on -- will be the first R-rated, women driven comedy in ages but it won...

His last truly great performance was...

In moving to an earlier date, producers only lined the film up against Fox's expected smash hit "X-Men: First Class." Though at first they probably thought the two films were different enough to draw their respective audiences, it looks like...
