The Interview
All the free publicity given to upcoming comedy The Interview has apparently made it popular enough to get a Christmas release.

The film, originally slated for an October 10 release, will instead hit theaters on Christmas Day, according to a press release. There it will face fierce holiday competition, including R-rated comedy Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Disney's ensemble musical Into the Woods.

Rory Bruer, Sony president of worldwide distribution, said in a statement, "The combination of Seth, Evan and James is pure comedic magic. In our early screenings of The Interview, we’ve seen tha...

This, one top of the 21 Grammy Awards he has won, makes him a force to be reckoned with in the music world. But even huge artists like Kanye West aren't free from parody. Here are the 5 best Kanye West Parodies of all time.

Kim Jong Un Officially Condemns James Franco And Seth Rogen For
That's right folks - the supreme leader of the glorious "People's" Republic of North Korea is officially angry with the two stars behind the upcoming action-comedy The Interview.

Kim Jong-un has been the butt of many, many jokes since his father Kim Jong-il passed away. In fact, with all the emerging horror stories coming out of escaped 'citizens' (more like prisoners) the entire country has quickly become a very sad political joke and a blemish on southeast Asia in general.

But leave it to Hollywood to turn what might be considered a serious problem into a comedy. And there are few actor...

Top 10 Stars Who Are Always Typecast In Their Movies

People tend to judge a movie by its cast. For example, when you see Adam Sandler on the poster of a new movie, you'll expect it to be a family comedy. We all know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover," but how can we not?

We at Starpulse would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our favorite actors and actresses who have been diagnosed with a severe case of typecastitis.

5 Best Movies On The Humorous Side Of Child Endangerment

December 9th, 2011 10:00am EST
The Sitter Poster
Why do we love R-rated comedy? Answer: The swearing is better. This sex is more comical. The shenanigans are more extreme. What makes any R-rated comedy better? Answer: Children.

The addition of children to any hilarious movie only makes that movie more hilarious. Having kids along for the ride takes all the things we love about these films and intensifies them. Having a kid in the car during a chase scene makes the danger more real and more frightening (hence the title of this column). Swearing, the lifeblood of any R-rated comedy, seems all the more taboo when it’s done in front of kids....
