    Jason Reitman Calls ‘Labor Day’ "A Misguided Effort"

    Three years ago, you could have forgiven Jason Reitman for having an invincible self-image. His first four features all garnered a degree of critical praise, and “Juno” and “Up In The Air” each got a handful of Oscar nods. Even “Young Adult,” which flopped at the box office, was well regarded —the t...

    Box Office: 'Ride Along' Cruises Along In Top Spot, 'Labor Day' Bakes At Low Heat

    Review: Jason Reitman's Dreary 'Labor Day' Starring Josh Brolin & Kate Winslet

    Short of helming a "Smurfs" sequel, it's tough to imagine writer-director Jason Reitman going for a greater change of pace than he has with "Labor Day," a full-immersion exercise in the old-fashioned women's weepie that skews far closer to Nicholas Sparks' brand of contrivance than Diablo Cody terri...

    Jason Reitman's 'Labor Day' Is a Suspenseful Romantic Heart-Tugger (TRAILER)

    10 Films To See In January

    January is perceived to be a flat-out, no-good month to release a movie. Usually considered the dumping ground for films which would be killed opening up any other time—no disrespect—but if your movie’s being released this month, it will be approached with a greater sense of wariness. However, it's ...
