Fact-Checking 'Lee Daniels' The Butler'

Posted By Gary Susman on August 08, 2013
TWC For all the unlikely casting of U.S. presidents in "Lee Daniels' The Butler" (Robin Williams as Ike? James Marsden as JFK? Uh... okay...), the movie's highly subjective recreation of history actually seems to work. Maybe the actors aren't up to the task of playing such formidable real-life titans, but then, as seen by the long-serving White House manservant of the movie's title, these...

Horrible Bosses & Other Signs Hollywood Noticed the Jobs Crisis

Posted By Sharon Knolle on July 07, 2011
Losing your job is usually pretty damn traumatic, but in the recent wave of recession-themed movies like 'Larry Crowne' and 'The Company Men,' it's just the first step in creating a happier, more fulfilled life than you had in the first place. Yeah, right. While we appreciate Hollywood's attempt to sympathize with us common folk who are struggling to make ends meet, seeing Tom Hanks or Ben...

The Oldest Students in Movies: Going 'Back to School' When You're Older Than the Professor

Posted By Sharon Knolle on July 07, 2011
There's no statute of limitations on education, otherwise disruptive (and much-older-than-the-norm) co-eds the Marx Brothers, Rodney Dangerfield, and rappers Method Man and Redman would never have been let onto campus. As middle-aged college student Larry Crowne, 54-year-old Tom Hanks isn't hitting the books just for laughs, but for the life lessons, something we students of inspirational...

Megan Fox Wasn't Fired, She Quit (and That Shia Fling Wasn't Cheating)

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
Megan Fox isn't even in the new 'Transformers' film, and yet she's still grabbing all the headlines as the movie hits theaters. Shia LaBeouf just admitted in a no-holds-barred Details magazine interview that his romance with Fox continued off-screen. When asked how Fox's now-husband Brian Austin Green factored into that love triangle, LaBeouf could only say, "I don't know." Now, according to...

A Moviefone Salute to Guys Named Hal

Posted By Sharon Knolle on June 06, 2011
What's in a name? We asked that recently in our Moviefone Salute to Guys Named Leonard. Now with two new films starring guys named Hal -- the comic-book extravaganza 'Green Lantern' and the indie 'Beginners' -- it seemed like a good time to review who else has borne the sometimes princely name. There are hunks, heroes and even a few inspired by real-life Hals. And the most famous Hal of...

'The Conspirator': An Historic Who's Who

Posted By Monika Bartyzel on May 05, 2011
President Abraham Lincoln's story is on the rise in Hollywood. Ol' Honest Abe is set to fight the fangs in 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'; director Steven Spielberg is still itching to bring the 16th president's real-life, fang-free world to the big screen with 'Lincoln'; and currently playing in theaters, we have 'The Conspirator.' The latter isn't directly about Lincoln, but rather the...

Courteney Cox Dishes on 'Scream 4,' Twitter and Whether Anything Scares Her

Posted By Laura Prudom on April 04, 2011
It's been 11 years since the last installment of Wes Craven's genre-redefining 'Scream' franchise hit screens, and time has been kinder to some of its stars than others. Though Neve Campbell has been out of the spotlight of late, the slasher series' other leading lady is enjoying the kind of career longevity that would put Gale Weathers to shame. Back in 2000, when 'Scream 3' was released,...

'Hop' Review: The Easter Bunny Lays an Egg

Posted By Eric D. Snider on April 04, 2011
While the world's desperate cries for more sequels to 'The Santa Clause' go unanswered, Universal Pictures brings us the next best thing: the same basic concept, changed to the Easter Bunny, mixed with 'Alvin and the Chipmunks,' and executed without distinction. This is 'Hop,' a forgettable family comedy -- live-action save for the animated talking animals -- that will be tossed out in a few...

The film is intentionally ambiguous –- we never find out exactly...

'Rango' Review: Must Be Something in the Water

Posted By Eric D. Snider on March 03, 2011
With 'Rango,' the only thing more astonishing than its subversive sense of humor and general anarchy is the fact that a studio is putting it in wide release. It's a cartoon about talking animals, but I don't know if kids will like it. I'm not even sure it's intended for them. Some of the jokes are surprisingly grown-up. The story has direct references to 'Chinatown,' 'Blazing Saddles,' 'Star...
