Dinner for Schmucks
Anytime you’ve got Steve Carell and Paul Rudd sitting around a table breaking bread, it’s going to be a unique and hilarious dining experience. At least that's what audiences will be counting on when they sit down to watch the comedy “Dinner for Schmucks.” The film, which opens Friday, July 30, stars Rudd as an executive, who brings Carell’s character to his boss’s monthly dinner party for idiots.

This got us thinking about some of the most memorable meals we’ve seen at the movies. Take a look, and let us know which of your favorites weren’t on the menu!

Ten Greatest Entertainers of the Decade

December 18th, 2009 9:39am EST
Greatest Entertainers of the Decade
This week, we've brought you the Ten Greatest TV Shows, Songs, Albums and Movies of the Decade. Now it's time to roll it all into one with the Ten Greatest Entertainers of the Decade.

This was a decade where entertainment became increasingly fractured. With 500 channels 500 bazillion websites and every medium on-demand, bringing together any significant chunk of people to one thing was a true sign of greatness. In an era when nobody had to agree - making them agree took something beyond the level of entertainer we saw in the past.

With that in mind, here are the Ten Greatest Entert...

Fictional Characters We Wish Were Real

Fictional Characters Who Need To Be Real
While we all have dealt with our own Michael Scotts, here are fictional characters we all wish were on our plane of reality.


Claire Huxtable ('The Cosby Show')

A dramatic improvement from the current reality TV mom, Kate Gosselin, Claire would be a role model for moms and lawyers everywhere.

Patton Oswalt: 'Big Fan' Of Comics, Not Sports

August 27th, 2009 1:59pm EDT
Big Fan
In Big Fan, comedian Patton Oswalt plays a huge New York Giants fan. The problem is, he doesn't exactly root for a team on Sunday in real life. So in his exclusive chat with PopEater, he summed up how he got into character: "Basically I had to draw on my geeky love for comics. It's the same spark, just different fuel."

Big Fan has been riding a wave of buzz since its Sundance Film Festival debut - even drawing implications of a Golden Globe or Oscar nod. "I honestly don't know what to do when you're nominated. I'm assuming they send a car for you, and you go to some parties.

"I'd be...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

May 26th, 2009 8:57am EDT
This week is probably the least exciting of the summer movie season so far because we don't have an epic blockbuster premiering. There are three movies coming out, two of which are mainstream releases. Pixar fans will be happy to see the group's latest animated feature, and Sam Raimi aficionados will get their fix with something that thankfully isn't another "Spider-Man" movie.

While I tend to like Pixar's movies, I never generally get super excited about seeing them in the movie theater. Aside from "Wall-E" and "Toy Story," which I saw in theaters, I've enjoyed their other films ...

Final Oscar Nominee Predictions

January 21st, 2009 10:46am EST
Slumdog Millionaire
The time has come, after several months of campaigning and voting, we're finally set for the big day. No, not the inauguration. Please. We're talking about Oscar morning.

Those fifteen minutes at the crack of dawn where overly-caffeinated celebs awkwardly read the names of the top five in each category. Always gripping. Also, this is prime time for predictions. All the returns are in, the precursor season is over, so there's not excuses left. Without delay, here are my final Oscar Predictions.

Okay, one delay. I should note that I hate being right. I hate getting predictio...

Underrated & Overrated Films Of The $300 Million Club

August 1st, 2008 12:55pm EDT
"Iron Man", "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and "The Dark Knight" all joined the $300 Million Club this year, swelling its membership to 29 films.

The films in this select group are made up of big-budget action extravaganzas, animated new classics and even some prestige pictures that touched a nerve with a wide audience. Whatever the movie may be, once it hits the triple-century mark, it's a bona fide smash and destined to become a classic.

This milestone is not always a sign of quality; however, as many films that become so popular simply stink. It also is...

'WALL-E' Earns Accolade as 2008’s First Perfect Film

June 26th, 2008 9:24am EDT
(Hollywoodchicago) – While perfection can be characterized in many ways, there’s only one way to define perfect in the world of film: a picture that has everything you could ask for with nothing you could cut. Though this is a highly unlikely proposition, “WALL-E” has become 2008’s first perfect film and one of the best Pixar projects of all time.

The man with the ingeniously imaginative story and the decisive direction to be credited with every inch of success “WALL-E” is destined to reap is none other than Andrew Stanton.

Indeed, Stanton is intimately familiar with w...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

April 17th, 2008 8:00am EDT
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

More Fire Starters Than Passionate Cooks On This Season's 'Top Chef'

March 20th, 2008 11:52am EDT
Top Chef
Top Chef is one of the best cooking shows out there. While many argue that this show is unrealistic, I argue that it takes a creative person to be able to make something incredible during one of these challenges, and what is a chef without creativity? C'mon, haven't you seen Ratatouille?

After Stephanie's big win on the first episode, we are starting to get a peek at these people's personalities, and it sounds like there are a lot more fire starters than passionate cooks on this season. There's a lot of cockiness coming out of some of these cooks, and we shall have to see if some of th...

PETA Blasts Sharon Stone For Wearing Rat's Foot

February 25th, 2008 3:04pm EST
Sharon Stone
Hollywood star Sharon Stone has been slammed by animal rights campaigners for wearing a broach made from a rat's foot to Elton John's post-Oscars party on Sunday night.

The Basic Instinct actress picked up the 'lucky' charm after hearing it was an item Scotsmen wore on their wedding day.

But her choice of accessory has left activists at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals fuming.

In a scathing attack on Stone for her fashion attire, PETA campaigners said: "Maybe Sharon, passed over by the Academy yet again, was jealous of Ratatouille's Oscar win and thought a rode...

Point/Counterpoint: Should There Be A Separate Comedic Category For The Academy Awards?

February 13th, 2008 1:00pm EST
Think of your favorite comedies. Whether it be Monty Python And The Holy Grail, Caddyshack, Animal House, or recent films like Dumb and Dumber, Anchorman, The 40-Year-Old Virgin or Borat, they all have something in common. Each film boasts incredible performances, and the Academy has not recognized any of them. How is this fair? Bill Murray, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller - all the successful comic actors should get their due.

It is equally hard to create a great comedy as it is to make a gripping drama. The Golden Globes have a separate category for comedic perfo...
