Just in time: My best in show in '09!

30 December 2009 9:56 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

I find myself getting crazy reflective as the year draws to a close. Maybe because I'm just that deep. Or maybe just because there is less new stuff to write about this time of year, so I need to fill this column with something. So today, I offer you my picks for the best of the best of the last 12 months. (Fyi: I tried to limit the acting categories to one winner and one runner-up, but in some cases ties were simply unavoidable.) Best Drama Series: Mad Men. Marital drama hasn't been this honestly and gut-wrenchingly depicted since Tony and Carmella came thisclose to divorcing. »

‘Alvin And The Chipmunks’ 2 Movie Brought Laughs & Entertainment

26 December 2009 7:06 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

'Alvin And The Chipmunks' 2 movie brought laughs & entertainment. 20th Century Fox's new "Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakuel" movie hit theaters this weekend. I just got through checking it out. Contrary to other reviews I read,it was quite entertaining and brought plenty of laughs and entertainment. It stars: Jason Lee, Justin Long, David Cross, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Anna Faris, Christina Applegate, Amy Poehler, and Zachary Levi. In "Alvin and The Chipmunks: The squeakuel," the chipmunks are now being taken care of by Toby (Zachary Levi) because Dave is in the hospital. They now have to go to school,which seemed a bit too unrealistic,even for this type of movie,but oh well. »

'Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel' Introduces Rodent Love Interests, The Chipettes!

23 December 2009 9:30 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

From MTV.Com: You'd be hard-pressed to find three more fun, bubbly, beautiful blondes than Anna Faris, Amy Poehler and Christina Applegate. This week, millions will go and see their new movie, but not actually see them. Or really hear them — at least not their God-given voices.

The ladies, who play the Chipettes in "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," say the film is a unique opportunity for an actor to infuse a character solely with personality, unencumbered by the usual limitations of voice and physicality. Such lofty thoughts, however, went right out the window when we recently sat down with Poehler and Applegate, two good friends who could barely contain their laughter long enough to give us their thoughts on the sexiest Chipmunk, their old-tim

Beverly Hills, California — You'd be hard-pressed to find three more fun, bubbly, beautiful blondes than Anna Faris, Amy Poehler and Christina Applegate. This week, millions will go and see their new movie, but not actually see them. Or really hear them — at least not their God-given voices.

Review: Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel

22 December 2009 8:38 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When last we left Alvin And The Chipmunks, they were living with David Seville (Jason Lee), rocking and rolling and being as cute and cuddly as CGI can possibly be.  To be honest, I don’t really remember how 2007’s Alvin And The Chipmunks ended.  It was a forgettable, clear cut waste of time, resources and any excess film stock that happened to be laying around.  It’s pretty much how I feel now about Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, a movie whose dispensable nature leaves it aimlessly reaching for our attention or that of our children.  It probably gets theirs, especially if your kid’s the kind who rattles and hums at the thought of adults getting hit in the head.  For the rest of us, though, the ones who actually put down the money so our kids can be slightly amused for 90 minutes, it’s tedious and »

Running Amunk for the Holidays

22 December 2009 11:59 AM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Happy holidays, everyone! Those willing and able to drag themselves away from the huge pile of swag under the tree can enjoy the late Heath Ledger's final performance, a Jude Law double bill and a drolly comic Romanian police procedural underneath among other holiday presents that await at the multiplex.

"Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel"

With the tagline "Munk Yourself" sounding more like a threat than a come-on, the high-pitched trio of singing rodents return just in time for exhausted moms to plunk the rugrats down at the multiplex after the presents are unwrapped while they snore quietly in the back row. Betty Thomas, who has some kid-themed kid-themed hijinks with on her CV, steps in for the first film's helmer Tim Hill and trades out her experience with real critters on "Dr. Dolittle" for these much less messy (not to mention non-union) digital substitutes. Jason Lee reprises his role as Dave, »

Exclusive Video: Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel Cast Featurette

22 December 2009 12:34 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ross Bagdasarian, Jr. created America's favorite singing chipmunks, Alvin and the Chipmunks to be exact, in 1958 when he discovered that if he sped up his musical recordings the high-pitch voices would sound like singing chipmunks, thus the Chipmunks were born. Since then, the furry musical group have had hit songs, popular TV shows, a blockbuster live-action/CGI film and have even earned a Grammy. Now the trio has returned for a "Squeakquel" to their 2007 hit Alvin and the Chipmunks, which went on to make over $300 million worldwide, entitled Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, opening in theaters on December 23rd. Not only will the film mark the cinematic return of the brothers Chipmunk but will also introduce to the big screen for the very first time their famous female counterparts, the Chipettes. We recently had the great opportunity to sit down with the true stars of the film, Alvin, Simon and Theodore, »

Jennifer Lopez in The Back-Up Plan

Photo: CBS Films Now, before you read any further realize some of what is described going forward may be considered a bit salty for workplace or sensitive consumption, but considering we are discussing the content of an MPAA approved trailer it can't be too bad? Right? Well let's find out...

Today the trailer for Jennifer Lopez's upcoming film The Back-Up Plan, in which her character wants to become a mother and decides to go the route of artificial insemination, debuted online. This is where the discussion comes in based on the question posed in the headline, and also where I am going to hand it off to the perceptive eyes of Vince over at Film Drunk. Here's what he brought up in his posting of the trailer and I have included the same image he references at the top of this post: I'm »

"Alvin and the Chipmunks" sequel hits flat note

20 December 2009 1:19 PM, PST | Filmicafe | See recent Filmicafe news »

The tune selection might be different, but otherwise it's the same old song with "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," which Fox opens on Wednesday.Having successfully made the full-length CGI transition with their 2007 smash hit (grossing more than $350 million worldwide), Alvin and the boys apparently had nothing left to prove, judging how very little about this contractual obligation of a sequel feels fresh or inventive.That obviously shouldn't deter families looking for a little harmless holiday distraction, but it would have been nice if more of an effort had been made for their hard-earned money. Would, say, even 3D have been too much to ask?Instead, the concept of new and different takes the form of the Chipettes. The chipper but ambitious Destiny's Child-like girl group -- they made their debut back in 1983 for the "Alvin and The Chipmunks" animated series -- provides potential competition, »

Why Parks and Recreation Is the Best Sitcom of the Year

14 December 2009 10:31 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

NBC comedy Parks and Recreation has been named sitcom of the year by men's magazine GQ - and I couldn't agree more. The dark horse comedy has earned the praise: despite a slow start, the show has found its groove in the second season. "It just takes time," Rashida Jones told me in an interview a couple of months ago, and she nailed it - Parks and Rec is just now finding its own humor and utilizing each actor to his or her best. To see my reasons why Parks and Recreation has come into its own this season, just read more. Four words: The pit is gone. The writers have found the humor that works best for each character. Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope is probably most improved. Now sweet and funny (and a feminist!), Leslie no longer acts like a direct mix of Michael Scott and Liz Lemon. »
