Jim Carrey Facts: 29 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the 'Dumb and Dumber To' Star

14 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Believe it or not, Jim Carrey has graced the big screen for over 30 years.

Carrey started off as a stand-up comic in Canada, but veered towards TV and film a few years after his move to Hollywood. The actor landed a variety of roles in no time, and Carrey's big break came in the early '90s on the popular sketch comedy show "In Living Color" (1990-1994). After becoming a featured player on the show, Carrey was offered the lead roles in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask," and "Dumb and Dumber" -- all in 1994. Yeah, he did all right. This fall, Carrey returns to one of his landmark roles, playing the affable goof Lloyd Christmas in "Dumb and Dumber To."

From his friendship with Tupac to his co-star romances, here are 29 things you probably don't know about Jim Carrey.

1. James Eugene Carrey was born January 17, 1962 in Ontario, Canada to Kathleen Oram and Percy Carrey. »

Five reasons why we love Bill Murray

17 October 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With St. Vincent in theatres this weekend and Ghostbusters reboot news flooding Twitter, it’s seems like everything’s coming up Bill Murray lately.

Though an enigma off-screen, Murray has long-established his position as one of the funniest and most consistent comedic actors in film history with an output of modern classics like Groundhog DayGhostbustersCaddyshack,Rushmore, and Lost In Translation.

According to Emma Stone in Zombieland, Bill "has a direct line to my funny bone." We agree with you, Emma – though we probably wouldn’t go so far as punching a child for not knowing who Bill Murray is, Woody Harrelson.

So, yes -- with the exception of some the participants of his infamous "Saturday Night Live" era feuds -- everybody loves Bill Murray. But why exactly is Bill so universally loved?

We try to pare down our reasons for loving Bill Murray down to five, but we fail, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Bill Murray Reveals the Secret to His Success on Bill Murray Day

5 September 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Instead of a crown, Bill Murray wore a hunting cap, but the actor and comedian received a royal welcome at a question and answer session Friday as part of the Toronto Film Festival’s “Bill Murray Day” celebration.

Fans flocked into the Tiff Bell Lightbox, spilling out into the aisles, to watch as the actor riffed, reminisced and philosophized alongside “Ghostbusters” director Ivan Reitman and “Scrooged” screenwriter Mitch Glazer, ostensibly the evening’s moderator, but with Murray there’s no riding herd.

They came wearing proton packs, ghostbusters outfits and t-shirts bearing Murray catchphrases from films such as “Groundhog Day” and “Caddyshack.” There was even a baby outfitted in a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man costume — “That’s a good looking baby,” Murray deadpanned.

He entered, at his insistence, singing along to Prince’s “Raspberry Beret.”

There were gifts too. One audience member gave Murray a drawing he said he’d »

The 10 Best Improvised Scenes in Film

21 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Even though scripts play an incredibly important part of the movie making process, sometimes a little improvisation is just what a movie scene needs to take it from good to great. CineFix has put together a fantastic video that highlights the 10 greatest improvised scenes in film history. I think they did a great job putting this together, and I can't think of anything that I would add to it. Check it out! I've included the list of films mentioned in the video below.

Bridesmaids (2011)

A lot of this movie was the talented comedic actresses in the cast going off book, but Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s “Air Marshall” exchange takes the cake.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Marlon Brando’s performance as Col Kurtz was largely made up on the spot. And while we don’t endorse actors not learning their lines, we can’t fault what came of it in this instance… »

5 less-heralded Robin Williams films

11 August 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Robin Williams’ long filmography has more than its share of high-profile roles—but IMDb lists 102 total acting credits stretching all the way back to 1977. (That first one? A pair of parts in something called Can I Do It ‘Till I Need Glasses?, which the site describes as “a comedy are comprised of short sexually suggestive skits.”) Williams’ triumphs (Good Will Hunting) and failures (Popeye) are well-known, but it’s worth digging through some of his less-heralded work to find the occasional gem. 

1. Insomnia (2002)

Williams had been an animated Disney character, a silly cross-dressing nanny, Peter Pan, and an Oscar-winner before »

Bill Murray to Play Baloo in Disney's New 'Jungle Book'

2 August 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Bill Murray is set to give voice to the lovably laid-back bear Baloo in Disney's upcoming reboot of The Jungle Book. Deadline reports that the actor will be joining the Jon Favreau-directed production, which is set for release on October 9th, 2015.

Murray is taking up the post in an already-impressive cast that includes Christopher Walken as the orangutan King Louie, Scarlett Johansson as the snake Kaa, Ben Kingsley as the panther Bagheera, Lupita Nyong'o as the wolf Raksha and Idris Elba as the tiger Shere Khan. The film, based »

Bill Murray Cast As Baloo In The Jungle Book

1 August 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

You never really know when or where Bill Murray might turn up. Unless it's a Wes Anderson movie, in which case, there's a pretty good chance. But The Jungle Book isn't a Wes Anderson movie, it's a Disney movie directed by Jon Favreau, and Bill Murray is voicing the role of Baloo. Murray joins a top-notch cast of voices that already includes Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Idris Elba,and Scarlett Johansson, the latter of whom starred alongside Murray in Lost in Translation. To celebrate the news, Jon Favreau posted this teasy announcement, offering a nod to Caddyshack, but no direct mention of Murray...

23 Times Bill Murray Was Just the Greatest, From the Golf Course to the Oscars to His Impeccable Taste in Hats

29 July 2014 3:50 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Bill Murray is having a killer second act. Already forever a comedy icon thanks to his work in Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters and Groundhogs Day, et al., Murray had a career renaissance thanks both to Wes Anderson in general and his turn as a jaded actor in the 2003 indie darling Lost in Translation, for which he earned an Oscar nod for his uncharacteristically dramatic (though liberally peppered with humor) efforts. Now, in addition to being at the top of every director's wish list, the 63-year-old actor is enjoying a new kind of renaissance in which he is more than just a reliably versatile movie star. He's a downright pop-culture darling! Basically, Bill Murray makes everything »

It could have been the Greatest golf movie of all time ... even better than "Happy Gilmore" ... but the one thing holding back "Caddyshack" is that stupid Gopher ... so says Shooter McGavin himself. A mustachioed Christopher McDonald  was rollin' through Lax -- when he channeled Bill Murray and took aim at the gopher ... telling TMZ Sports it's the one flaw in an otherwise great flick. Meantime, the movie producers loved the gopher so much ... they gave »

The Three Stages of Bill Murray's Brilliantly Bittersweet Career

26 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Bill Murray became a movie star 35 years ago this week, upon the release of "Meatballs" on June 29, 1979. His lead role as the head counselor at a sub-par summer camp marked a number of firsts: his first of four movies with director Ivan Reitman (the others were "Stripes" and the two "Ghostbusters"), his first of six movies with writer Harold Ramis (the four Reitman films, plus "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day"), and his first taste of mega-stardom beyond his TV fame on "Saturday Night Live."

Since then, his career has taken on a trajectory unique in the history of film, one in which he's gone from comic goofball to dramatic thespian, from universally beloved to acquired taste, and from manic cynic to soft-spoken spiritual seeker. Through it all, however, there have been a few constants; no matter whether he's a grubby groundskeeper or a morose mogul: Murray's character is always the coolest »

A Field Guide to Tracking Bill Murray in the Wild

12 June 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This post originally ran in October 2012. Bill Murray is the embodiment of the #Yolo phenomenon. A legend in his own right (see his work in Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Rushmore, Saturday Night Live, Caddyshack, Lost in Translation, etc.), the guy has made a habit of using his very public profile to gleefully mess with people. Urban folklore finds him showing up randomly, pulling stunts, and telling the starstruck that no one will believe their story, even if it shows up on a comprehensive blog recording that very same series of events. We at Vulture have done our research, setting out to find the perfect strategy to help you lure the Williamabus Murrayadon into your snare trap. Try any of these or all of them at the same time. Just get married. (Photo via Or rather, simply have a bachelor party. Hate on the Green Bay packers, invite heckling. Attend »

Watching Robbie Senior, Robbie Junior, Shaggy and the rest of the Robbie’s First Base crew handle some of the rarest, most sought-after sports memorabilia on each episode of our new reality series Ball Boys got us to thinking about the type of rare sports items we would die to get our hands on to decorate our homes and offices. What we realized was that all of the sports memorabilia that we would really love to own actually comes, not from the gridiron, green or rink, but from the silver screen. In no particular order, we present to you the "Ultimate 8," iconic sports props from movies about sports and movies in which sports are central to the plot. Check out the list below and then be sure to tune in to Ball Boys on Reelz.

The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

20 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.

And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Ghostbusters'

18 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Every summer has a dominant blockbuster, but it’s not every year that the season’s biggest movie inspires a legitimate mania. Ghostbusters, which surrounded some of the funniest guys on the planet with expensive — though slightly cheesy — special effects, was a certifiable phenomenon. In 1984, your classmates, your teacher, your pen-pal in Nairobi, even your half-deaf grandmother knew the emphatic, enthusiastic chanted response to the winking question, “Who you gonna call?” Thirty years later, everyone still knows the answer.

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis played the trio of disgraced parapsychologists who pick the perfect time to go into »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Animal House'

17 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Fat, drunk, and stupid may not be the best way to go through life, but it sure does create one memorable film character!

Movies have often been set in and around college campuses, but none quite like Animal House. From toga parties to food fights, the film not only introduced us to many collegiate cinematic clichés, but pretty much reinvented the entire genre. When you think of a college movie, you think of Animal House.
