Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Wanderlust,' 'Good Deeds,' & More

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
Leading into the Academy Awards this upcoming Sunday, I’m trying to catch up on all the Best Picture nominees which I missed in 2011. Last night I watched the Alexander Payne drama “The Descendants” starring George Clooney, which I liked immensely. I found its Best Picture and Best Actor nods much deserved, though I felt it was a bit too heavy on the narration and the Hawaiian music for my taste. My Grade: A-

Dropping in at the box office this week are the David Wain comedy “Wanderlust,” the Tyler Perry inspirational story “Good Deeds,” Amanda Seyfried crime thriller “Gone,” the mili...

It's No Optical Illusion: Jennifer Aniston Wows At 'Wanderlust' Premiere

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston attended the "Wanderlust" Los Angeles premiere yesterday wearing a black and white strapless dress. We like the geometric print that looks almost like an optical illusion.

In the film an overtaxed Manhattan couple (Aniston & Paul Rudd) move to a free-spirited community that rejects the rules of contemporary society.

She recently told GQ about her own "Wanderlust"-like hippie experience. She explained, "In Laurel Canyon, we were very familiar with hippies. I mean, I bathed. But I also wouldn't call myself a Beverly Hills person in any way. I was a more earthy girl for su...

Interview: 'Our Idiot Brother' Director Jesse Peretz On Paul Rudd, Emotional Truths And What He Loves Doing Most

12/5/2011 11:30am EST
Our Idiot Brother
When one thinks of actor Paul Rudd these days, comedy definitely comes to mind. But in the new Rudd outing "Our Idiot Brother" (out now on DVD/Blu-ray from The Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay Entertainment), thanks to Director Jesse Peretz there is also a definite dramatic sweetness that adds a unique touch to the surprisingly endearing film. The movie tells the story of joyful idealist Ned (played by Rudd) who ends up newly involved in the lives of his three very different but equally uptight sisters, played by Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel and Emil Mortimer. Add to that a supportin...

Seth Rogen in My Mothers Curse
Seth Rogen has had many comedy costars: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, James Franco. Next he has a true diva. Barbra Streisand plays his mother in My Mother’s Curse. Not many people get to call Babs mom.

“I didn’t call her that that often but it was great,” Rogen said while promoting this week’s new release 50/50 at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We actually worked very well together I think. It was a lot like Joe [Gordon-Levitt] in that she really was into being a comedy team. She really embraced the idea that it was a buddy comedy with a mother and son.”

We spotted a stylish Jennifer Aniston in all black as she attended the premiere of "Five" at the Skylight Soho Theater in New York last night. Her ensemble is simple yet sexy, don't you think?

Paul Rudd: 'A Male A** Shot Is The Cheapest & Best Laugh Ever'

9/15/2011 9:53am EDT
Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd finds male nudity in movies hilarious - except when it's his bare bottom on show.

He explained, "I'm a big fan of movie nudity. A male ass shot is the cheapest and best laugh ever. But it's mortifying to do. When I showed my butt in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, all I could think was, 'This is going to be up on all those big screens.' I was very self-conscious about doing it."

Rudd most recently starred in "Our Idiot Brother" about scruffy idealist Ned who wreaks havoc on the lives of his mother and three sisters, Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), and Liz (Emily Mo...

Zooey Deschanel Looks Like A Clown At 'Our Idiot Brother' Premiere

Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel is usually cute as a button, but we do not approve of her look at the "Our Idiot Brother" premiere in Los Angeles yesterday.

The actress wore a black and white dress with a huge ruffled collar paired with heavy eye make-up. Do you think she looks ready for the circus?

In the film, scruffy idealist Ned (Paul Rudd) wreaks havoc on the lives of his mother (Shirley Knight) and three sisters, Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie (Deschanel), and Liz (Emily Mortimer), while overstaying his welcome in each of their homes and voicing his opinions when they aren't wanted.

Rashida Jones
Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones steams up the June issue of GQ magazine and discusses her hit NBC show and her latest film.

The 35-year-old actress - and daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones - speaks highly of her Parks and Recreation castmates, but given the context of a sexy GQ photo shoot, her words don't exactly come out right.

"Every week, someone on that show will tickle me in a new and fun way. Wow, that sounds really bad. Please put that next to a topless picture of me in GQ," she says.

Rashida plays Zooey Deschanel's lesbian girlfriend in the upcoming comedy...

This Week's Shining & Falling Stars: Betty White and Reese Witherspoon

Betty White Reese Witherspoon
Shining Star– Betty White: A “Golden Girl” is becoming a pin-up girl. After an incredibly lucrative 2010 - which included a hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live”, a role on the TV Land Show “Hot in Cleveland”, and a much buzzed-about Snickers commercial – Betty White is taking her career to the next level in 2011. The experienced entertainer has her very own calendar.

The kitsch-tastic product is appropriately called “The Betty White Calendar”, and features the seasoned senior citizen posing on the cover with some serious man candy.

And just in case the idea of an 88-year-old actress do...

How Do You Know You've Fallen Out Of Love?

12/16/2010 4:59pm EST
How Do You Know
You feel a deep, seething resentment festering inside of you, and you aren’t positive, but you’re relatively certain it has something to do with that big blob of goo you used to call a man sitting across from you in your apartment watching The Biggest Loser and shoveling Doritos into his gaping maw. CAN’T HE SEE THE IRONY?!

It might be that you’ve fallen out of love. You'll want to be sure, because all relationships have their peaks and valleys.

If you’re Taylor Swift, you might realize that you’ve already squeezed as much material as you can out of a guy. It’s that time-to-move-on nag...

How Do You Know You've Fallen In Love?

How Do You Know
Well, look at you. Walking down the street with a smile on your face. Aren't you something, laughing when pigeons try to steal your sandwich, smiling at the homeless people who use your building as a toilet. Why, you even gave $0.47 to a mariachi band on the train. Could it be? Are you in love?

Everyone knows how exceedingly pleasant it is to fall in love. But that blissful period of infatuation can only last for so long before you have to decide whether it's for real. If not, then it's time to scuttle out the door, shamefully carrying the small armload of possessions you've left at his or...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Tron: Legacy,' 'Yogi Bear,' & More

12/13/2010 9:29am EST
Tron Legacy
Last Thursday I saw “I Love You Philip Morris” starring Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. This film, which is written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and Jon Requa, the team behind “Bad Santa,” advertises itself as a funny movie; however it leans more dramatic than expected. Most of the hilarious lines are spoiled by the trailer, so when you get a chance to see the whole product, you’ll find yourself a bit let down.

Both Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are incredibly convincing as a gay couple from the manner of their speaking down to the body language that they use. Their story is one that pull...

Reese Witherspoon: 'No Superhero Movies For Me'

12/11/2010 1:30pm EST
Reese Witherspoon
Actress Reese Witherspoon has ruled out ever starring in a superhero movie because futuristic films have no roles suitable for women of her age.

The Hollywood star admits the movie industry has changed drastically in the last few years and become more sci-fi oriented - but she has no intention of trying her hand at that genre.

She tells Entertainment Weekly, "The movies that are being made feel different. There are a lot of really, really, really big movies about robots and things - and there's not a part for a 34-year-old woman in a robot movie.

"I've never done the superhero movie. Tha...

Reese Witherspoon
It's been two years since Reese Witherspoon, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 2006 for Walk the Line, has graced a movie, unless you count her voicing a nearly 50-foot-tall animated woman in Monsters vs. Aliens. But while moviegoers may feel like she's been away for a while, Witherspoon has shot three movies that will hit theaters over the next year. In How Do You Know (rated PG-13, opening Dec. 17), she's an Olympic-caliber softball player whose career has hit a wall and who finds herself caught romantically between a rakish star pitcher (Owen Wilson) and a broke businessman (Paul Rudd). It...
