    Get Out Your Handkerchiefs: 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Review and Roundup

    There's a reason The Weinstein Co. is opening "Lee Daniels' The Butler" ahead of film festival season, even if it does have Oscars in mind. They recognize that this crowd pleaser will play better, like the similarly accessible "The Help," for a wide audience than critics. It's a four-hankie tearjerk...

    Review: 'Clear History' Starring Larry David, Jon Hamm, Danny McBride, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton & Eva Mendes
