Jason Bateman: Greatest Career Resurrection Ever?

7/7/2011 3:00pm EDT
jason bateman
One of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now was practically living in obscurity 15 years ago. The second act of Jason Bateman’s career is almost as unbelievable as it is well-deserved. After a career-boosting (heck, career-reviving) role on Fox’s short-lived sitcom “Arrested Development,” Bateman has become ubiquitous in Hollywood comedies and pretty much synonymous with the passive-aggressive straight man character. This weekend, his new movie “Horrible Bosses” opens nationwide co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey. The cast, which mi...

'X-Men: First Class' Named The Most Blunder-Filled Movie Of 2011, So Far

X-Men: First Class
X-Men: First Class is leading a Hollywood list of shame - it's the most mistake-filled film of 2011 so far.

At the halfway stage of website's annual rundown of blunder-full pictures, the superhero blockbuster - starring James McAvoy - leads the field with 24 errors.

The howlers include a wrongly-dated Nazi coin, a character's hand changing position after it has been stabbed and pinned to a table with a knife, and an actress' hairstyle changing mid-scene.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is second in the list, with 13 mistakes including a plateful of cream ...

Review: Seth Rogen Steals Scenes With Caustic Sarcasm In 'Paul'

3/18/2011 12:38pm EDT
If E.T. spent enough time on Earth adapting to our language and customs, he probably would have become a wisecracking rebel just like Paul, the title character in director Greg Mottola’s latest buddy comedy. This alien with attitude, voiced by the gravelly Seth Rogen, steals scenes with his caustic sarcasm, penchant for practical jokes, and his gross personal habits. Paul is neither naive nor innocent, but his maturity or lack thereof is what makes him so hilarious.

While Rogen is humorous in the film, it helps that Brits Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pen the screenplay for “Paul.” The two...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Limitless,' 'Paul,' & More

3/14/2011 10:00am EDT
Last week I was able to interview director Cary Fukunaga and actress Mia Wasikowska about their most recent project “Jane Eyre.” I got to talk with them about their motives for remaking a classic story like Jane Eyre, about working with Judi Dench, and about life on the road promoting movies. If you have not already read it, check out my interview with them, and my review of the film.

I’ve already seen “Paul,” starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, which debuts this week, and I have plans to see two other films coming out: “The Lincoln Lawyer” and “Limitless.” I will also be interviewing ...

Rango was released in theaters today, and so far the critical reception has been positive. However, it's not the first comedy based in a desert by a longshot - in fact, these barren stretches of Earth are actually fertile grounds for scenes that make us laugh. Here are some of the best comedic film moments in the desert.

no strings attached
2011 is going to be a big year for movies, and if you’re anything like me, you tend to forget what’s coming out and wind up missing everything. So I took the liberty of compiling a list of movies that, in my opinion, are must-sees for 2011. In chronological order of release dates, we’ll start with...

The Green Hornet (Now playing)
The only superhero movie on this list, and it’s only on this list because it looks funny (like “Ironman”) instead of trying to be a cross between “Batman Begins” and “Watchman’ (I’m looking at you, “Thor”...). If you don’t know anything about “The Green Hornet...
