    Weekend Box Office: Audiences Get Their Strings Attached To 'No Strings Attached'

    Not much news to report during this quiet January weekend. One wide release opened to numbers that a studio would expect given two publicity-heavy stars in January ($20.3 million). “No Strings Attached” matched industry expectations, bringing good news to all involved, though if you're the only wide...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Green Hornet' Nests At #1, 'Dilemma' Disappoints

    This is how business works in Hollywood: you break records or else. "The Green Hornet" was a big ticket for Sony, opening at #1 as everyone expected. But that isn't enough for the film, which set the studio back somewhere between $90 (before reshoots?) and $140 million (after?). As such, simply maki...

    In Theaters: 'The Green Hornet,' 'The Dilemma,' 'Barney's Version,' 'Ong Bak 3'

    Screw Serious Cinema, It's Time for Some Laffs 'n Action Ah January, what a curious moviegoing month you are.

    Review: 'The Dilemma' Chooses Wacky Hijinks Over Intelligent Comedy

    Overrated screenwriter Allan Loeb is curiously one of the most in-demand writers in Hollywood right now, and we're beginning to understand why. His screenplays tend to sell high-concept work which makes executives and producers feel good about themselves, but the actual execution undermines whatever originality and vigor the original premise may have had, keeping things safe for mainstream audiences to embrace without thinking too much, which makes studio heads happy. But if you look closer, Allan Loeb seems to be writing the same script over and over with entire plots hanging on one character struggling to tell somebody the secret he's holdi...

    Watch: Electric Cars Aren't Gay In The International Trailer For 'The Dilemma'

    While the battle for comedic free expression has been won on the back of a pretty dumb joke, the international trailer for Ron Howard's "The Dilemma" plays it safe and doesn't reference the "electric cars are gay" joke at all, but actually, surprisingly, did make us chuckle more than the first spot ...

    Electric Cars Will Continue To Be Gay, Ron Howard Keeping Joke In 'The Dilemma'

    Sometimes taking a stand means siding with a pretty lame joke, and such is the case for Ron Howard who in the name of comedic expression, will be keeping the "electric cars are gay" joke in his upcoming "The Dilemma."
