    Watch: Electric Cars Aren't Gay In The International Trailer For 'The Dilemma'

    While the battle for comedic free expression has been won on the back of a pretty dumb joke, the international trailer for Ron Howard's "The Dilemma" plays it safe and doesn't reference the "electric cars are gay" joke at all, but actually, surprisingly, did make us chuckle more than the first spot ...

    Watch: First Trailer For Natalie Portman & Ashton Kutcher Rom-Com 'No Strings Attached'

    Ever since we read Liz Meriwether's Black Listed script (originally titled "Fuckbuddies") for the Ivan Reitman-helmed romantic-comedy "No Strings Attached," we've been cautiously looking forward to the film.
