    In Theaters: 'The Lorax' Stands Up To 'Project X,' 'Being Flynn' & 'Tim And Eric's Billion Dollar Movie'

    Being Flynn: Yes, De Niro's Still Great

    While it's a drag that the title of the novel it's based off of -- "Another Bullshit Night In Suck City" -- couldn't stick for the big screen adaptation, things are looking good for "Being Flynn." The first trailer that dropped last fall was a pleasant surprise, promi...
