Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

Some of them were nasty characters, but other ones told me they were worried about me... One of them told me I was going to have to answer for s**t.

10/12/2010 10:41am EDT
Robert De Niro and Edward Norton’s latest collaboration “Stone” turned out to be a serious disappointment.

Norton plays Stone, a convict seeking parole, who employs his attractive wife (Milla Jovovich) to seduce his parole officer (De Niro). Over the course of the film it’s never quite clear S...
