    AMC’s Rubicon: Pattern Recognition, Left-Wing 24?

    The cable series Rubicon debuts Sunday night. Reviewer David Chute recommends it: "After the two excellent back-to-back episodes that comprise its Sunday night 'premiere event,' Rubicon promises to be a worthy stable-mate for the channel’s Emmy-dominating Mad Men and Breaking Bad."

    film review: Dinner For Schmucks

    I’d like to extoll the virtues of a great comedy, but this isn’t it. A word of explanation: I come to Dinner for Schmucks at a disadvantage, because I love the French film on which it’s based, The Dinner Game (1998). I’ve also heard its creator, the brilliant writer-director Francis Veber, describe his filmmaking philosophy, and criticize Hollywood colleagues for always wanting to expand and complicate his material. (The Birdcage is the best translation ever made of a Veber property, but I still prefer his original, La Cage aux Folles.)

    As 'Dinner For Schmucks' Opens, We Run Down 15 Notable Hollywood Foreign Films Remakes

    The Steve Carell/Paul Rudd comedy "Dinner for Schmucks" hits theaters this weekend, and like many films since the dawn of Hollywood, it's an attempt to Anglicize a film which proved to be a hit abroad, but perhaps had too many of those tricky words at the bottom of the screen to cross over to mainstream audiences — in this case, the 1998 smash hit "Le dîner de cons." And while by most accounts, Jay Roach's film is something of a wash-out, the process has occasionally seen some victories, or at least some fascinating films.
