    Weekend Box Office: Families Complete The Circle Of Life, Pack Theaters For Movie They Own On DVD

    Right now, some jerk at Disney is finding a way to use the term “circle of life” to define how they can release “The Lion King” anytime, and it will always make money. A 3D re-issue of the film became the number one weekend attraction by a very wide margin with $29 million, a huge middle finger to t...

    In Theaters: 'Drive' Looks To Zoom Past 'Straw Dogs' & 'I Don't Know How She Does It'

    Hello friends. Your mission, should you choose to accept it (WHICH YOU WILL CAUSE I SAID SO) is to go see "Drive" this weekend. There is no other movie playing in theaters. Nope, not one. There, this column is over. Done! "Drive" is all there is to see. Worth seeing anyway. And I would be remiss if I didn't champion truly original and excellent filmmaking in this column. Do not go see "Lion King 3D." We are not children (if you are a child, why are you reading this? Stop now). Don't you remember that talk we had back when "Green Whatever" came out? We don't watch movies for kids. Especially not ones we already saw 10 years ago. Ok, rant over....

    Review: 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Is A Pained, Unfunny, Politically Questionable Bore

    One of the "charmingly neurotic" tics of the main character of "I Don't Know How She Does It," played brittlely and with affected strain by Sarah Jessica Parker, is making to-do lists. Since the year is 2011 and editing software has come a long way, we see her visualize the list as the prepares for sleep – everything from arranging her daughter's play date to doing some Kegel exercises (yes, seriously) – with words and small images appearing tattooed on the ceiling of her bohemian chic Boston apartment (accompanied by a never-ending stream of voice-over narration). While watching "I Don't Know How She Does It," which at a swift 89 minutes sti...

    Watch: Sarah Jessica Parker In 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Trailer. We Don't Know How We Did It.

    A few weeks back, "Bridesmaids" struck something of a blow for the female-fronted comedy, by doing what so few have in recent years, and remembering to be funny and touching while failing to be patronizing, unpleasant, one-dimensional and misogynistic in its depiction of its characters. Did it mark an opening of the floodgates? After all, the film's breakout star Melissa McCarthy, not exactly your traditional female lead, has already landed a starring role in a new project, while the more imminent films in the same genre, projects like "Bad Teacher" and "What's Your Number," seem to give some reason for optimism. Were the days of the mind-mel...
