The Top Buzzy Films At Sundance 2014

January 16th, 2014 2:03pm EST
Boyhood
With the Sundance Film Festival starting today, we decided to take a look at some of the most anticipated films set to make an appearance. Expect to hear from many of these films in the coming year, whether it is a wide release or awards talk.

Boyhood - Richard Linklater proves he's in it for the long haul. Boyhood follows exactly what the title implies, but Linklater made the film over 12 years and used the same cast to reveal the true effects of aging.

Camp X-Ray - Kristen Stewart and Guantanamo Bay add up to one controversial film. Stewart stars as a guard that strikes up a friendship ...

Celebrities That Turn 40 In 2014

January 1st, 2014 11:00am EST
Leonardo DiCaprio
Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

It's that time of year for our annual "who is turning 40" this year extravaganza. Truth is, lots of people do, but we'll just keep it to the more famous variety of peeps in the world.

Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

For those of you who weren't around that year, the mantra of 74' and the world was energy crisis -gasoline was a little hard to get and lines at gas stations were blocks long. Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

Nielsen passed away in 2010, aged 84.

Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Ed Helms And Jason Sudeikis Star In Mumford & Sons' 'Hopeless Wanderer'

August 5th, 2013 3:07pm EDT
Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Ed Helms, Jason Sudeikis as Mumford &
Mumford & Sons hired a few body doubles for their latest music video, "Hopeless Wanderer."

Jason Bateman, Will Forte, Ed Helms and Jason Sudeikis star in a video poking fun at the folk rock band, although it isn't obvious at first. It seems like a normal music video, even if the faces of the band members are obscured by the glaring son or sneaky camera edits.

Once the stars are revealed, the music video still retains some authenticity, even if you can get over Will Forte's awesome beard tribute to Ted Dwane and a few lustful stares. However, around the three-minute mark, things begin to g...

Review: 'The Hangover Part III' - Someone Forgot The Funny

May 23rd, 2013 4:00pm EDT
The Hangover Part III
I judge how good a comedy is, by how much I laugh, as well as how much the audience laughs...or doesn't, as was the case last night, sitting in the theatre, watching 'The Hangover Park 3'.

It's been two years since our guys...Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) have had any encounters with strippers, weird tigers, monkeys, gangsters or drugs.  In fact, they are all happily married and living the good life in suburbia.

The only member of the Wolf Pack who doesn't have his life together is (unsurprisingly)...Alan (Zach Galifianakis.) And now, he's off his meds. He...

The Hangover Part III
The latest trailer for The Hangover Part III is finally out, and the new promo reveals a lot more of the movie's plot than the first teaser that was released early last month.

This time around, the "Wolfpack" -- Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) -- returns to where it all started -- Las Vegas.

This time around a crime boss (John Goodman) tracks down the Wolfpack and takes Doug (Justin Bartha) hostage until the guys can deliver Chow (Ken Jeong), who stole $21 million from the kingpin.

Heather Graham (Jade) and Mike Epps (Black Doug) reprise their roles fro...

The Office
The upcoming ninth season of hit comedy The Office will be its last.

The Emmy Award-winning series, based on comedian Ricky Gervais' hit British incarnation of the same name, premiered in 2005, essentially launching the careers of several little-known actors, including Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling and Jenna Fischer.

The program has gained a large following ever since, thanks to lead characters Ed Helms and Steve Carell, who quit the series last year, but on Tuesday, executive producer Greg Daniels shocked fans by announcing they are calling it quits.

'The Office' Recap: 'Free Family Portrait Studio'

Angela Kinsey
‘The Office’ has limped to the season-ending finish line with ‘Free Family Portrait Studio.’ With only a couple of laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of change ahead, it makes one worry for the series’ future. But let’s start with what actually happens.

Andy returns to Dunder Mifflin (again) looking pathetic as ever. He’s dressed like a janitor and asks Nellie for any sort of work. She allows him to be a carpet cleaner, for which he appears grateful. As it turns out, though, he’s just putting on an act. He knows David Wallace has bought Dunder Mifflin and that he will be returned to the pos...

'The Office' Recap: 'Turf Wars'

The Office
A lot of people seem to think that if ‘The Office’ jumped the shark, it was with the “Michael Scott Paper Company” phase. Those who weren’t a fan of that storyline were probably a bit miffed by ‘Turf Wars,’ which sees Andy do practically the same thing.

Clearly, he’s still missing working at Dunder Mifflin. He comes into the office randomly one day to make lunch for his former coworkers. While he’s there, he sees quite a bit of drama unfold.

Robert California walks in and seems to be in a hung over stupor, vomiting in a trash can. He “celebrated” the night before upon finding out his divo...

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We've been laying down some demos and kicking them back and forth. We've been playing together so long, we have so many original tunes. We’ve made recordings for friends and family for years but we’ve never done a proper alb...

Public functions don’t seem to go well with ‘The Office’ folk. Numerous embarrassing situations typically emerge, and ‘The Fundraiser’ is no exception.

Robert California announces that he’s bought two tables at a fundraiser for an animal welfare society, an event hosted by Angela’s (state) senator husband. Let’s see, where should we start with all the awkwardness?

Andy shows up uninvited. He ends up heckling Robert and announces his exciting plans for the rock opera he’s been writing in his spare time. In an effort to show everyone that he’s okay after being fired, he aims to impress. He ...

With Andy and Erin on their way back from Florida, the rest of the crew (including Robert) awaits new boss Nellie’s arrival. It seems she slept in, hitting the snooze button nine times, and seems overwhelmed with moving all of her stuff into her apartment “in the suburb of a suburb.” Robert quickly assigns Jim and Dwight to help her unpack, while the rest of the staff is tasked with throwing Nellie a welcome party. Oh joy.

Meanwhile, back on the road, Andy and Erin are rehearsing how Andy should break up with Jessica. He knows Jessica is at her family’s cabin so decides to stop and do it t...

Ed Helms Sticks Up For Civil War Reenactors

March 24th, 2012 3:24pm EDT
Ed Helms
Ed Helms has defended American Civil War re-enactors from critics who accuse them of prolonging the agony of one of history's darkest hours.

The Georgia-born actor and funnyman is a history fan and his father was a Civil War buff - and he insists it's important people relive the past on battlefields dotted across America.

Helms says, "Re-enactors are not trying to relive the war...They're history buffs."

But he accepts some re-enactors take it too far: "There is a pre-occupation with the past as being this nobler time, and I think that is where it does get into sort of a grey, dare I say...

This episode is called “Get the Girl” because of what Andy’s after. But it could have easily been titled regarding what Nellie’s after: Andy’s job. In the end, it looks like they both get what they want.

Andy has ridiculously bad timing by driving down to Florida to tell Erin he loves her and bring her back to Scranton. But Erin has built a (kinda lonely and boring) life for herself caring for her old lady (the sharp Georgia Engel). And, in a rather heartfelt and revealing conversation, she tells Andy that he’s broken her heart too many times and she’s realized it will never work for them....

Jeff Who Lives at Home
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: We are all connected... Everyone and Everything... Nothing is random... There are signs everywhere.

Don't believe it?

Apparently you haven't seen M. Night Shyamalan's film 'Signs'.

Jeff (Jason Segel) has seen it many, many times. In fact, he's obsessed with it. And so Jeff waits... for a sign. While waiting, Jeff spends his days smoking pot and hanging out in his mother's basement apartment where he lives.

Jeff knows he's destined for something. He's just not sure what that 'something is.' But that's about to change, after our slacker gets...

'The Office' Recap: 'Last Day In Florida'

Todd Packer
It’s the end of the line for ‘The Office’ Floridians. Well, at least some of them.

When Jim, Dwight and Nellie join in a game of golf with Robert California (where have you been?) it becomes clear to Jim that Dwight’s job is in jeopardy. Clearly, Robert is not pleased with how things are going, although he oddly does not fault Nellie for this. Jim knows Dwight is as safe as one of Moze’s squirrels.

Back at the Scranton office – and let’s just dwell on this briefly – it’s time to sell Girl Scout cookies. Yes, that sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Toby and Darryl, who both have daughters at abo...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
I can’t believe it took me so long to finally watch 2009’s “Pirate Radio.” Set in the 60s, this period piece superbly captures the spirit, styles, and music of the era. The film tells a compelling story about a group of rebels challenging the system, who are portrayed by a fantastic cast of actors. It’s one of the few movies I’ve watched in recent months, that I had zero complaints about. My Grade: A+

Comedies are in abundance at the box office this week with the 1980s inspired action comedy “21 Jump Street,” the Will Ferrell western comedy “Casa de mi Padre,” the Jason Segel familial...

These two-sided episodes are getting a little old. The stuff going on in Florida is kind of interesting, but that makes everything else back in Scranton seem deadly dull. Let’s start there and get it over with.

A little gang of kids on bikes randomly attack Pam (really?) and when Andy intervenes, a 12-year-old girl punches him straight in the eye. Of course he doesn’t want to own up to it, so he and Pam tell the Office folk that they were attacked by a gang brandishing weapons.

After convincing the gang not to call the police, Andy has Toby conduct a self-defense course, the highlight of ...

Q&A: Zac Efron Says He & His 'Lorax' Character Are Hopeless Romantics, Kind Of Annoying & Pretty Funny

Zac Efron - The Lorax
Zac Efron knows he’s a hit with the high school contingent, and after three High School Musicals, they’re growing up with him. Efron’s done some more grown-up comedies like 17 Again and New Years Eve, and some drama in Charlie St. Cloud and Me and Orson Welles. Now he’s going for an even younger audience.

The Lorax is Efron’s first animated movie. He provides the voice of Ted, a young boy with a crush on Audrey (Taylor Swift). When Ted goes looking for the one last tree outside of town, he learns the story of the Lorax (Danny DeVito) and how an entrepreneur, The Once-ler (Ed Helms) talked ...

“After Hours” takes us back to Tallahassee, where Dwight and Packer are both vying hard for Sabre’s VP job. They key to getting it, they think, is taking Nellie to bed. At first, Packer appears to be on the road to doing that, but Dwight enlists the help of Gabe, of all people. He slips something into Packer’s drink, and before you know it, Packer is blowing chunks (appropriately enough, onto Gabe’s beloved boot-cut pants).

Eventually Dwight manages to get Nellie to invite herself to his room, which is what he wants – sort of. As it turns out, he doesn’t want to go all the way; he just wan...

When you get Dwight involved in a “special project,” you know strange things will happen. When Andy announces Dwight’s “promotion” to lead a three-week project down in Florida, he probably doesn’t know what he’s in for. And neither does anyone else in the office.

Dwight’s initial plan, which includes taking Darryl and Phyllis, among others, is botched for many reasons. Andy doesn’t agree with his choices, and Jim’s got a problem of his own – he gets a text from Robert California telling him to bring his clubs to Florida. Uh oh.
