    Weekend Box Office: 'Gnomeo' Leapfrogs 'Hall Pass,' Audiences Not 'Angry' Enough To 'Drive'

The Disney Touchstone release, populated almost entirely by British actors, is something of a surprise hit, sin...

    Happy Oscar weekend! This Sunday brings the apex of Hollywood's season, rewarding those 2010 films we've been talking about for so long. Who will wear what? What upsets will we be rooting for? Will James Franco perform some kind of bizarre performance art stunt as part of his hosting duties (all signs point to YES). We will be live blogging the events of Sunday evening, so check back in for the rockin'est Oscar commentary your computer has seen. In the meantime, get your highbrow on and rent those remaining DVDs of the Oscar contenders you missed.

    Review: 'Hall Pass' A Raunchy Sex Comedy That's Afraid Of Sex

    It might seem like a distant memory, but at one time the Farrelly Brothers were the leading the pack -- and were possibly the only players of note -- in the arena of progressive, raunchy comedies. The trifecta of "Dumb & Dumber," "There's Something About Mary" and "Kingpin" put the sibling duo on the map but ever since, they've been chasing past glory to lesser and lesser effect which now brings us to "Hall Pass." Coming barely a month after "No Strings Attached," the Farrellys' film may be all dressed up in the trappings of a taboo breaking comedy but by comparison, it makes the Natalie Portman/Ashton Kutcher vehicle look positively avant ga...

    The Farrelly Brothers Say 'Hall Pass' Is A Chick Flick

    Why Armie Hammer Was Cut From The Film And Other Revelations From The Filmmakers, Owen Wilson & Jason Sudeikis "Hall Pass," the upcoming comedy from Peter and Bobby Farrelly ("There's Something About Mary," "Kingpin," "Dumb And Dumber"), sees Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis as two friends given a week-long hall pass from their wives (played by Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate). They have one week off from marriage and thus the freedom to chase the girls they constantly ogle and lust after. If anything, this is a movie for those that have, in a way, been growing up with the Farrellys: with a mix of the outrageous humor they're known for, ...

    Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'Hall Pass' Slightly Better, Proves Richard Jenkins Is Amazing

    We've always got a lot of hope for the Farrelly Brothers but we're unsure why. The duo haven't made a decent comedy in over a decade, and their recent output has paled greatly to the new school raunch comedy directors led by Judd Apatow and his merry band of filthy mouthed thesps. So here we have "H...

    First Looks At 'The Hangover 2,' 'Horrible Bosses,' 'Hall Pass' & 'Something Borrowed'

    It's almost December, which means that 2010 is already starting to sneak out from under the covers, before putting its clothes on and disappearing forever. That in turn means that the studios are starting to send out their promotional materials for their 2011 slates. Between these and the 2011 previ...

    Watch: Trailer For 'Hall Pass' Needs To Go Straight To The Principal's Office

    We have to admit, we did have some hopes for this one. Directed by the Farrelly Brothers, who are still chasing the early trifecta of funny "Dumb & Dumber," "Kingpin" and "There's Something About Mary," we kept our optimism slightly raised with the likes of Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer...
