"Rv" (2006): Certainly there are families who enjoy being trapped together in tight quarters and on wheels, but the Munro family is not, initially, among them. Dad (Robin Williams) has the idea for this trip, and daughter Cassie (JoJo Levesque) sets the tone with: "Mom, some idiot just parked this ugly Rv outside our house." Soon they learn just how awful their Rv is and encounter rogue raccoons and an overly friendly family, the Gornickes, played by Jeff Daniels, Kristin Chenoweth and Hunter Parrish. It's one of those films that no matter how bad your vacation is, this could make it seem like paradise.
"Dirty Dancing" (1987): The movie that made Patrick Swayze a star and made everyone who ever danced to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" try to do that lift. Swayze plays the older, slightly dangerous dance instructor Johnny Castle, with whom Dr. Houseman's (Jerry Orbach »
Could this be the Balls of Fury sequel no one was clamoring for? Unlikely, though Deadline does say that Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon will be involved with Ping-Pong Summer, a feature Michael Tully plans to direct from his own script. It.s being described as a coming-of-stage story of a New Jersey teen with a passion for table tennis and hip-hop music who embarks on a family vacation in the summer of 1985 and contends with his entire life changing before his very eyes. Get me a young John Cusack on the phone! Let.s hope Sarandon doesn.t play a seasoned beach comber who helps trigger a sexual awakening in the young protagonist in Tully.s screenplay. Will this be The Wackness, or One Crazy Summer? We.ll find out as more details emerge. If you think it.s strange that Sarandon would commit to a ping-pong-themed project, you don.t »
With origins in Chicago’s Second City Theater, appearances in films like One Crazy Summer and The Artist, and TV shows like “Dharma & Greg,” “Mad Men” and “Shameless,” actor Joel Murray has seen many different aspects of Hollywood. A self-professed character actor, the hardworking Murray (brother of Bill) now has a lead role in God Bless America, a film written and directed by his long-term pal Bobcat Goldthwait.
In Goldthwait’s latest film, Murray plays a divorced father named Frank who decides he has had enough of bratty reality TV stars, jackass political commentators, people who talk during movies, etc. With the help of a young girl named Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), Frank decides to kill some people in hopes of making our world a nicer place.

Chicago – Joel Murray, as most people know, comes from the Murray clan of Wilmette, Illinois, which includes his fellow actor brothers Brian Doyle and Bill. He has established himself as a memorable TV and movie character actor, and portrays a man gone wild in the Bobcat Goldthwait-directed “God Bless America.”
Murray is Frank, a middle aged man recently divorced, fired from his job and possibly terminally ill. With nothing much left to live for, he decides to take out his frustrations on what he considers the idiotic in society – he begins a shooting spree by targeting reality TV stars. He finds an unusual accomplice in a high school student named Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr), and together they embark on a nationwide assault on the pseudo-celebrities of America. This is Murray’s second film collaboration with director/writer Bobcat Goldthwait, having appeared in “Shakes the Clown” in 1992.
Joel Murray was one of nine Murray siblings, »

Earlier today the folks over at EatSleepLiveFilm put up a list of what they called the ’100 Best Films of the 80s’ and whilst their list was full of awesome films – covering a plethora of genres and touching base on a number of the decades best and most-loved movies – upon reading it, and as a 80s aficionado, I found there to be quite a few glaring omissions. Hence this “rebuttal” – a list of 50 films (in no particular order) that Didn’T make Eslf’s Top 100 that I think are some of the best of the 80s, including some that might surprise you…

This week on House of Lies, Marty and his team had a plus-one, as Roscoe accompanied them on their latest case. I'm not sure I can agree that San Francisco has the best food trucks, but it definitely was a fitting stage for the treat of an episode "Mini-Mogul" dished up.
First things first: don't be fooled by the rocks that Jeannie's got. As soon as her fiance was out of sight she hid her ring away and once again became Jeannie from the block, asking Clyde to email her the video of his latest tryst with a Tsa employee. Thanks to Kurt's (Nick Stahl) cerebral intuition, which he no doubt honed while playing the coffee house circuit, we learned that in addition to being a connoisseur of cannabis, Jeannie also has some major daddy issues.
This will certainly stoke the already smoldering flame between her and Marty, who we »
