Will Ferrell
Funnyman Will Ferrell has been named Hollywood's Most Overpaid Star for the second year running.

When he topped the annual list last year, Ferrell was pulling in just $3.29 per dollar he took home.

Eddie Murphy was second on the new countdown - his films drew $4.45 for every dollar, although Forbes' editors ruled out animated movies and therefore did not include his hit "Shrek" films.

The "Shrek" movies are known for the recognizable voices of their celebrity stars as much as they are for their touching, irreverent fairy tales. By the time they got to do "Shrek Forever After," the actors had some war stories of meeting families and having to turn it on in public.

There’s no separating Antonio Banderas from Puss in Boots.

“I remember a couple of times where, a woman came to me once in a supermarket with her kid who was like five years old and said to me, ‘Look! Look! It’s Puss in Boots!,’” Banderas said. “The kid looks up to me and says, ‘No mom, that’s Zorro.’ You don...

The Ten Greatest Movies Of The Decade
So far, we've given you lists of the Ten Greatest TV Shows, Songs, and Albums of the decade. Now it's time to turn our focus to the Silver Screen.

This decade, moviemaking became incredibly fractured. After the Indie Boom of the nineties there suddenly wasn't much of a difference between an independent/art film and the mainstream movies from blockbuster studios. Many of these studios were now attempting to make their own indies, blurring the lines and resulting in more failures than successes.

Of course, there were still plenty of good movies to go around. The following is a list ...

Blockbusters, Comedies & Animated Films To Benefit From New Oscar Rule

In a move that had everybody checking their calendars to make sure it wasn't still April 1, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just announced that this year there will be TEN Best Picture nominees instead of the five-film shortlist that's existed since 1944.

So what does this mean exactly? That is, apart from the additional five minutes of clips at the Oscar show and the inevitable surprise of a bleary-eyed Oscar Nominee presenter who realizes they aren't finished after reading the name of the fifth film off the TelePrompTer? Plenty.

Are The Best Days Of 'The Simpsons' Over?

March 25th, 2009 1:05pm EDT
The Simpsons
The longest running animated series in television history has given Americans (mostly) and the world (partly) something to laugh about since the late '80s. To be exact, they appeared in all their grainy glory in 1987 in shorts on "The Tracey Ullman Show" and in half-hour nuggets on Fox in 1989. Somehow, through the evolution of the middle class family and the de-evolution of American culture, they have stayed smart, relevant and humorous for years...or have they?
