    Review: Animated Thanksgiving Comedy 'Free Birds' Is A Turkey

    In the first fifteen minutes of "Free Birds," a jarringly awful, new animated comedy loosely centered around a bunch of historical anachronisms about Thanksgiving, we're introduced to Reggie (Owen Wilson), a turkey who is seemingly the only bird on the farm to realize that they're getting fattened u...

    Owen Wilson Teases That Hansel Suffers 'Vanilla Sky' Type Injury In 'Zoolander 2'

    While Paramount has the script co-written by Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux, and are still trying to decide whether or not to go ahead with "Zoolander 2" (c'mon guys, is a decision on this one really that difficult? Hint: Do it), we'll take whatever morsels of info we can and the latest comes from H...

    Who Were The Winners And Losers Of The Summer Of 2011?

    As the summer winds die down with a flat and uninspired whimper, the realization sets in: the summer of 2011 was for the birds. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was the last major tent-pole to open, followed by sleeper hits like "The Help" and the not-so-successful R-rated action comedy, "30 Minutes or Less." Many had forecast that the overstuffed summer would prove disastrous, with Jon Favreau predicting that, "There’s not a weekend where there won’t be teeth on the floor," but ironically it's Favreau's film that proved to be one of the biggest box-office disappointments. Financially, films did very well with three billion-dollar blockbuster...

    With beleaguered film press heading back home from SXSW, all eyes are now being turned to the Croisette for the Cannes Film Festival, which is less than two months away.

    It's Up To You Paramount: Ben Stiller Says 'Zoolander 2' Script Has Been Handed In, Awaiting Reply

    While Paramount rejected plans for an "Anchorman 2," Ben Stiller and Justin Theroux have been hard at work to the sequel of their own hit comedy, "Zoolander." For much of last year, the project played second fiddle to the Will Ferrell vehicle, but no matter, as Stiller and Theroux have been plugging...

    Review: 'Little Fockers' Is That Lump of Coal You (Apparently) Asked For

    A blatant cash grab from studio logos to closing credits, “Little Fockers” takes the money-making formula of "Meet the Parents" and "Meet the Fockers" and adds adorable kids, Jessica Alba, and glorified cameos from Harvey Keitel and Laura Dern into the mix. Families will flock to the holiday release with gusto, but it’s up for debate whether 100 minutes with the Focker and Byrnes families is worse than quality time with your own dysfunctional clan. Sure, there are a few laughs, but we’re not talking minor discomfort on the level with your aunt having spinach casserole stuck in her teeth and blithely smiling for the camera. “Little Fockers” is...

    Review: 'How Do You Know' Is An Uneven But Ultimately Pleasant Experience

    With a recent influx of middling romantic comedies, it's easy to forget how different the genre used to be. Now very polished and only a success if it stars 40 different actors/actresses each with three minutes of screen time, movies including "Green Card" and "Crossing Delancey" showed a different side of things. Instead of drowning audiences in star power, they offered a down-to-earth and complex female individual with an unfortunate penchant for choosing the wrong guy. It was easy to figure out who to root for, but there was something more to it. It may have been the comfortable aura the movies had about them, or the fact that their protag...
