    'Crazy Stupid Love' Team Of Steve Carell, Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Reteaming For Backpacker Comedy

    Directing Duo Turned Down 'Bad Santa 2'While the third act plot twist to "Crazy Stupid Love" is hugely contrived and runs against the careful blend of comedy and drama that runs through everything before, the nicely crafted tone from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, and the engaging performan...

    Review: Chemistry Really Cooks In The Uneven, But Super Charming 'Crazy Stupid Love'

    Precariously mixing elements of broad comedy, bittersweet heartache, charming romance and soulful, surprisingly mature dramatic moments, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is an endearing and winning summer comedic drama. It succeeds in spite of some messy plotting, dicey adulteration of tones, and too convenien...

    Universal Wants To Go On An FBI Wedding With Steve Carell

    There is probably no comic leading man in Hollywood right now hotter than Steve Carell. It seems each week there is another project announced with the actor/comedian attached and this week is no different.

    Poster For 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Reveals It Stars Steve Carell's Crotch & A High-Heeled Shoe

    We know it's pretty much the heart of the summer, but if you have plans to spend the last weekend of July doing anything other than sit in a movie theater, you might want to consider rearranging them. On one of the busiest release dates in recent memory, there seems to be something for everyone: blockbuster fans get "Cowboys & Aliens," lovers of cult films get "Attack the Block," those who like "Scarface"-esque dramas with breakout lead performances get Dominic Cooper in "The Devil's Double," indie types get Miranda July's "The Future" or Brendan Gleeson in sweary Irish action-comedy "The Guard," subtitle-philes get French thriller "Point Bla...

    Jason Reitman To Rewrite Steve Carell Magician Comedy 'Burt Wonderstone'

    Considering how long it takes to actually get a movie made -- even the most hard-working of filmmakers can go three or four years between projects, through no fault of their own -- it's not surprising that many A-list screenwriters, or writer-directors, get through the lean years by taking script doctor gigs. It's fast, well-paid work, it rarely amounts to more than a dialogue polish, as the films are generally too close to production for major structural changes to take place, and, if the film turns out badly, it doesn't reflect badly on you, as any doctoring generally goes uncredited, which is why names from John Sayles to Joss Whedon have ...

    Al Pacino To Star In Rocker Dramedy 'Imagine'

    Well, this is an interesting bit of casting. With Steve Carell busier than ever with "The Office" now in the rearview mirror, the comic actor has had to shed one of the many projects he's been linked to in the past few months. Dude has to eat and sleep sometime. Stepping away as an actor, but remain...

    William Petersen, Adam Brody & Rob Corddry Join 'Seeking A Friend At The End Of The World'

    Most comedians, once they're anointed stars, use their newfound fame to sign on to seemingly dozens of projects, reaching a kind of overexposure in speedy time. After the success of "The 40 Year Old Virgin," it seemed as though Steve Carell was heading that way, with the likes of "Evan Almighty" and "Get Smart," roles that could have been filled by any comic star, clogging up his big screen appearances. But to his credit, now that he's freeing up his schedule by departing "The Office" last week, he's taking on more interesting roles -- the excellent-looking comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" lands this summer, and he's got more dramatic projects li...
