    10 Reasons Why '21 Jump Street' Exceeded Expectations

    On paper, "21 Jump Street" was not an enticing proposition. A reboot of a 1980s TV series with a ludicrous premise -- fresh-faced cops go undercover as high school students. Produced by Neal Moritz, a man whose last attempt at an action-comedy reboot of a famous property was the dreadful &...

    Bill Hader Says Script For Les Grossman-Centric 'Tropic Thunder' Spin-Off Is Done

    Considering that it was both a reasonable box office success -- it took in close to $200 million worldwide -- and fairly warmly received (even picking up an Oscar nomination for Robert Downey Jr), it's surprising the extent to which the 2008 all-star comedy "Tropic Thunder" has slipped from memory -...
