    Watch: Robert Downey Jr. Needs To Save Robert Duvall In 2 New Trailers For 'The Judge'

    The phrase "they don't make 'em like this anymore" can be taken two ways. When a movie works as an effective throwback to a style in which Hollywood used to excel, it can be a welcome pleasure. When it doesn't work, you get a movie like "The Judge" (read our review), a slickly produced dramedy encom...

    "Well, I know it's going to happen," Robert Downey Jr. said last year about his chances of eventually winning an Oscar.

    David Dobkin To Helm Hugh 'Hefner' Biopic While Paul Feig Lines Up Another Comedy

    Hugh Hefner has been many things during his life and career — champion of free speech and civil rights, night club entrepreneur and yes, peddler of naked ladies — so it was only a matter of time before his story made its way to the big screen. And time it's indeed taking. Universal first had "Hefner...

    'The Change-Up' Director David Dobkin Says R-Rated Comedies Should Make You Feel "A Little Sick"

    We're certainly not the first to say it, but the R-rated Comedy New Wave (La Nouvelle Vulgaire?) is raking in the dough. Once something you had to watch on Comedy Central after midnight, the turn of the century has seen the raunchy comedy genre steadily edging its way into guaranteed box office (and DVD sales) gold. And, arguably, "The Change-Up" director David Dobkin was amongst its pioneers. With 2005's "Wedding Crashers," the filmmaker managed to create an R-rated comedy but with enough broad appeal that it provided quality laughs, as well as ticket sales -- a lot of ticket sales (over $280 million worldwide). Since then, similar comedies...

Kicking off the summer was the box office smash “Bri...

    Point Counter-Point Review: 'The Change-Up' Is Gross-Out Unfunny Or Messy But With Amusing Laughs

    “The Change-Up” is nothing if not honest. Before the title card has even popped up on screen, Jason Bateman, playing a stressed out husband, father, and (pivotally) lawyer, gets poop sprayed onto his face and, seconds later, into his mouth. It’s a very gross gag very early on and sets the stage for ...

    David Dobkin Says 'The Change-Up' Isn't Exactly 'Face/Off' Or 'Freaky Friday'

    CGI Babies, The Freedom Of The R-Rating & More We Learned From Jason Bateman & Ryan Reynolds About the Body-Switching ComedyThis weekend sees the release of another candidate for the R-rated comedy of the summer: bro-rific body-switcheroo film “The Change-Up.” Starring Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, the story centers on two friends living polar opposite lives; Bateman as Dave, a family man and lawyer on the rise, and Reynolds as Mitch, his best friend, who makes a meager living as an actor, but mostly uses his charisma and physique to bang anything with two legs. After a night of drinking the two friends -- ahem -- relieve themselves, in w...
