20 October 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Oscar winners Michael Douglas (Behind the Candelabra) and Diane Keaton (Morning Glory) star in the romantic comedy drama directed by the estimable Rob Reiner (Stand By Me)  and written by Mark Andrus.

When his estranged son leaves his daughter for him to raise, obnoxious realtor Oren Little (Douglas) recruits his sweet neighbor Leah (Keaton) to help out. In the process, he realizes it may not be too late to begin appreciating the people in his life – and even allowing a few new ones into it!

Yikes, this one did really badly, garnering a 4.1/10 rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 82 published reviews. One particularly stinging review came from Time’s Richard Corliss, who said “And So It Goes may touch the frayed heartstrings of some older viewers, but it’s pretty »

Top 10 Musicals That Should Be Made Into Movies

20 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are two upcoming movie musicals that, for a long time, I've wanted to make into motion pictures, should someone with money be willing to give me the funds to make them -- Into The Woods and The Last 5 Years. I'm both nervous and excited to see how directors Rob Marshall and Richard Lagravenese, respectfully, have interpreted the material I hold so close to my heart. I am especially nervous for Into The Woods, given Marshall's less than impressive track record. If someone is going to screw up something I cherish, it should be me. Of course, there are far more than two musicals I have a deep connection to. Some have already been made into films, like Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Les Miserables, but there is a vast collection of musicals I have thought could make fantastic films, but have never been made. »

Film Review: ‘Love, Rosie’

18 October 2014 3:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A full quarter-century has passed since Nora Ephron deftly articulated the pitfalls of platonic friendship between men and women in “When Harry Met Sally…”. Yet if “Love, Rosie” is to be believed, a whole new generation of adults has arrived at much the same conclusion Ephron did: In the movies, at least, the sex part always gets in the way. A thoroughly likeable English-language debut for German comedy helmer Christian Ditter, this marzipan-sweet adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 bestseller “Where Rainbows End” is elevated by vibrant visuals and the winsome chemistry of Lily Collins and Sam Claflin. Cast as childhood BFFs who dance around their true feelings for each other through multiple decades, countries and partners, this inordinately pretty star pairing lends youthful appeal to a rom-com that could also woo the adult chick-lit crowd.

With its twelve-year narrative timeframe, comfy middle-class Britishisms and sparky pairing of striving, pure-hearted girl and raffish, »

Robert Redford to Receive Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Chaplin Award

11 October 2014 3:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center, the Gotham nonprofit that presents the New York Film Festival, has tapped Robert Redford to receive its 42nd annual Chaplin Award.

The laurel, which honors the film industry’s most notable talents, will lionize Redford for a career that has included iconic acting work (“Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “All the President’s Men,” “The Sting,” “The Natural”); a string of films as a director (“Ordinary People,” “A River Runs Through It,” “The Company You Keep”); Broadway credits (“Barefoot in the Park”); and staunch support of independent cinema as the founder of the Sundance Institute and its influential film festival.

Last year’s “All is Lost,” the J.C. Chandor film that Redford toplined, had a slot in the 2013 New York Film Festival. He just wrapped “A Walk in the Woods,” based on the Bill Bryson memoir, and is now at work on “Truth, »

The Greatest Spinal Tap Songs Ever Recorded

11 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In 1984 commercial director Marty Dibergi took a film crew and followed the ill-fated “Smell the Glove” tour by English heavy metal act Spinal Tap. The resulting film went on to become a classic for its depiction of rock and roll excess — and for Dibergi’s unflinching voyeur’s gaze into the decaying emotional state of a band struggling with its own success (or lack thereof). To celebrate the 30th anniversary of This Is Spinal Tap, we’ve taken a look back at the history of the seminal metal outfit, and revisited some of the very best rock songs the world

Six Picks With Michael McKean: Documentary Recommendations From a Mockumentary Legend

11 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Actor, writer, musician, comedian — Michael McKean seems to have done it all over his extensive career. From his early work in television, including an iconic role as Lenny on Laverne and Shirley, he soon established himself as part of the ensemble responsible for bringing the term “mockumentary” to the masses. Starting with Rob Reiner’s sublime This Is Spinal Tap (which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year), McKean joined bandmates Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer and a group of improvisatory geniuses in a string of features that toy with nonfiction filmmaking conventions, including modern classics such as Best In Show and A Mighty Wind. For the first part of our new “Pick 6” series, Nonfics reached out to McKean for a selection of films to recommend to our readers. The goal with this series isn’t to create some definitive, “best in show” list, but to bring to light works that quickly come to mind when artists, actors »

Golden Icon Winner Diane Keaton Gets Real at Zurich Film Fest

3 October 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Clambering onto the stage at Zurich's Corso Cinema to a rousing reception, and wearing a typically idiosyncratic ensemble (trilby, houndstooth blazer and leather skirt with white socks and precarious black heels), Keaton charmed the Swiss crowd, breaking into a breathy rendition of 'Seems Like Old Times' and brandishing her trademark goofy humour. Naming Ryan Gosling as the actor she'd most like to work with ("He can't wait to have a love scene with me"), she also heaped praise on her "age-appropriate" co-star Michael Douglas in Rob Reiner's "And So It Goes", which screened after Keaton accepted her award. "As far as our [screen] kiss goes," said Keaton, "it worked really well for me. The older I get the more I enjoy the kisses because I realize in my own personal life that's probably not going to happen. I told Rob Reiner he needed to do a lot of takes. »

Review: 'New Girl' - 'Julie Berkman's Older Sister'

1 October 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A quick review of last night's "New Girl" coming up just as soon as I save you from a hideous river disease... "Julie Berkman's Older Sister" was the plottiest of the three episodes we've gotten so far. Or, at least, it was the one with stories that in their broadest strokes — Jess disapproves of her father's younger new girlfriend, Schmidt takes desperate measures to win an account — you could see other sitcoms doing. But it was also a reminder of how easily "New Girl" can get distracted from its own storylines in favor of letting the actors do and say random things — and also of why they tend to lean that way, because that tends to be when the show is most fun. So pretty much everything about the Schmidt/sponge story was a mess on a plot level, yet the whole story was clearly just an excuse for scenes »

See Kaitlin Olson of 'It's Always Sunny' get bawdy over brunch on 'New Girl'

30 September 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The first two episodes of New Girl's fourth season focused on Jess Day's (Zooey Deschanel) pursuit of love, but the latest installment takes Jess's eyes off her own romantic conquests when her father Bob (Rob Reiner) breezes into town with a new girlfriend who has plenty of high school history with Jess. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson, who plays the girlfriend in question, talked to EW about crashing the loft tonight for the first of a three-episode arc. "When they offered it to me, I said, 'Only if there's full frontal with Rob Reiner,'" she laughs. »

Want to see the underbelly of the movie business? John Cusack will show you. With 76 credited roles under his belt, Cusack knows the lights and darks of Hollywood, and his experience - along with that of screenwriter Bruce Wagner - enables him to sketch a grim portrait of the industry in the new film, Maps to the Stars. Cusack has been a household name since the release of Say Anything 25 years ago, and he says he'll have the privilege of performing for awhile longer. "I got another 15, 20 years before they say I'm old. For women it's brutal. Bruce [Wagner's] thing about if you're 26, you're menopausal? »

New Girl: Kaitlin Olson Sees the Sunny Side of Playing Jess' Future Stepmom

30 September 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

When a teenage Jessica Day flipped through her high school yearbook, little did she know that one of those pages featured her unlikely future stepmother: This week’s New Girl (Fox, Tuesday at 9/8c) introduces Ashley, the young new fiancée of Jess’ dad, Bob.

Pros: Ashley is played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Kaitlin Olson, who’ll be back for more episodes later in the season. Cons: Ashley is Jess and Cece’s high school nemesis… though she doesn’t remember it that way.

Kaitlin Olson on Her New Girl Guest Role, It’s Always Sunny Season 10, and Why Drinking and Acting Don’t Mix

30 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Jess Day had a high-school nemesis. It’s hard to believe that Jess — glitter-loving, always-hugging, everybody-get-along Jess — could have had a mortal enemy in her teenage years, but she did. Or, at least, she thinks she did. Ashley, played by It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Kaitlin Olson, doesn’t remember things the same way. Technically speaking, she doesn’t remember Jess, like, at all. Ashley, a recovered sex addict (it only took her four tries to break the habit!), is only back in Jess’s life because of the most awkward reason possible: She’s dating Jess’s dad (played by Rob Reiner). Olson talked to Vulture about teen mean-girls, playing drunk, and switching gears from a show where everyone is constantly vicious to the sunny, supportive universe of New Girl. You play Jess’s high-school nemesis and her dad’s new girlfriend, which sounds like a very uncomfortable combination. »

Meet Jess' Worst Nightmare on New Girl—Her Dad's Very Young and "Loose" New Girlfriend!

It's always difficult when kids watch their divorced parents date other people. But Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is about to live through her worst nightmare on New Girl when her dad (Rob Reiner) brings his new girlfriend Ashley over to the loft. Because his new arm candy is none other than It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson! While we would be jumping up and down at the chance to welcome Olson into our family, Jess is less than thrilled for a couple reasons: 1. Ashley went to high school with Jess and is the same age as Jess. 2. Ashley was...ahem, loose, in high school. And still is. And even though Jess is not happy with her dad's choice in love interests, »

John Cusack Slams Hollywood, Compares It to a "Whorehouse" Where "People Go Mad"

29 September 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

All the lights and cameras may give Hollywood a glamorous feeling from the outside. But from John Cusack's perspective, the the place isn't too shiny inside. "You can't make it up," he told The Guardian while promoting his new movie Map to the Stars. "It's a whorehouse and people go mad." He added, "The culture just eats young actors up and spits them out. It's a hard thing to survive without finding safe harbour." The 48-year-old actor credits legends like Al Pacino and Rob Reiner for getting him on the right track when he was a young actor. Unfortunately, Cusack believes that times have changed for up and coming stars.  One young »

John Cusack: 'Hollywood eats young actors and spits them out'

29 September 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

John Cusack has spoken out against the modern film industry, describing Hollywood as a "whorehouse".

He said that there is no longer the support for young actors that existed when he was getting into the business.

"You can't make it up," the 48-year-old told The Guardian. "It's a whorehouse and people go mad.

"I got another 15, 20 years before they say I'm old," he continued. "For women it's brutal. [Screenwriter] Bruce [Wagner]'s thing about if you're 26, you're menopausal? It's only absurd because it's a little bit further than the truth.

"I have actress friends who are being put out to pasture at 29. They just want to open up another can of hot 22. It's becoming almost like kiddie porn. It's fucking weird.

"People would look after you when I was a kid. There were good people in the business. When I came to La Rob Reiner said: 'Come stay at my house'. He taught me. »

John Cusack Talks Movie Industry Problems

Move over Miles Teller, John Cusack is taking the heat off you.

The much beloved actor, currently out doing promotion for David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars," used an interview with The Guardian as a chance to frankly talk about the current state of the Hollywood industry - specifically its attitude to both ageing and women.

"It's a whorehouse and people go mad. I got another 15, 20 years before they say I'm old. For women it's brutal. [Screenwriter] Bruce [Wagner]'s thing about if you're 26, you're menopausal?

'The Equalizer' (2014) Movie Review

25 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The fact The Equalizer is an adaptation of a 1980s television series is meaningless to me. My only familiarity with the show is watching Rob Reiner in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, piss and moan after a phone call causes him to miss a portion of an episode. That said, it seems a working knowledge of the show would be of little use, that is unless there was more to the series than themes ridiculously ripped from classic literature and a trail of dead bodies left in the wake of a one man wrecking crew as he doles out his own brand of justice in a film that's not exactly good, not exactly bad, a little too long and violently fun. How's that for a mixed bag of descriptorsc What's best about The Equalizer is the fact Denzel Washington still makes movies like this. Denzel is a »
