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 »
Now that it’s finally been released on DVD, we look at the TV shows that built on The Wonder Years’ foundations…
The Wonder Years, famous for being the show that made a generation of kids nostalgic for a decade they’d never even set foot in, finally arrived on DVD this month following the resolution of a years-long music rights tangle. Neal Marlens and Carol Black’s comedy drama ran for six seasons between 1988 and 1993 on ABC, following Fred Savage’s Kevin Arnold through his late-sixties and early-seventies suburban adolescence.
Thematically, stylistically, and tonally, The Wonder Years blazed a trail for television comedy and teen-focused drama that was subsequently traipsed down by numerous shows, from the superlative Freaks And Geeks and My So-Called Life to How I Met Your Mother, Malcolm In The Middle and countless others. Its innovative film-style use of a single-camera, lack of laughter track, fourth-wall breaking, »

Synopsis: A group of cub scouts go camping in the woods, but could it be that the local story of a wolf boy named Kai is more than a story.
Belgium are known for fantastic chips, magnificent waffles, beautiful cities, and astonishing beers. They’re not as well known for their cinematic output, which is such a shame given some of the great films that come from the country. Recently though things have strarted to change, with the excellent Bullhead and Two Days, One Night gaining international attention, usually reserved for Belgium’s greatest cinematic export, the Dardenne brothers.

Hey y'all, listen up: tickets for Stagecoach Music Festival go on sale tomorrow! Stagecoach is the other - and for country fans, ultimate - music festival to take place in Indio, CA, typically the weekend following Coachella. (Check out photos from this year's Stagecoach here.) The 2015 lineup was announced last week, and it features badass country couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert as headliners Saturday and Sunday, respectively; a throwback to 2012 when they also had back-to-back performances at the desert fest. Country dreamboat - who has aged like a fine wine - Tim McGraw kicks off the weekend as Friday's headliner. Other performers include Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, The Band Perry, Sara Evans, and Justin Moore, along with a plethora of other legends (including Zz Top, Merle Haggard, and George Thorogood and the Destroyers of "Bad to the Bone" fame) and breakout stars like Maddie & Tae.

After the huge success of "Breaking Bad," many were very interested in seeing which direction Aaron Paul would take his career. His big studio film was "Need For Speed," but before that smash-em-up film played there was a smaller, more intimate tale of a father trying to do right by his young, rebellious son.
Kat Candler's "Hellion" played well at Sundance, and this stark independent film is now making its way to home video this month. Last January, Moviefone Canada got to speak with Paul about this project, and we were joined by Candler as well as the young lead, Josh Wiggins.
Much of the conversation surrounded discussion of Wiggins, an actor Aaron was almost evangelical about in his enthusiasm.
Moviefone Canada: Mr. Paul, you've been a huge proponent of Josh's work -- what does Josh's performance mean to you, and what did you see in his performance that »

Released in 2012, Grabbers was an immediate cult gem: an alien invasion comedy in which the inhabitants of a small Irish town avoid the attention of astral monsters by getting drunk down the pub.
Two years later, Grabbers director Jon Wright is back with another science fiction piece: Robot Overlords, an adventure that looks like The Goonies and Stand By Me with additional giant robots. Years after mechanical beings take over the Earth, and its citizens are strictly controlled by tracking devices planted in their heads, a group of teenagers decide to head out and discover what's really going on.
Directors: Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkin; Screenwriters: Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkin; Starring: David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, Billy, Connolly, Emilia Jones, Bobby Smalldridge, Harriet Turnbull, Ben Miller; Running time: 95 mins; Certificate: 12A
Rosamund Pike is about to hit it big thanks to Gone Girl, but before that she'll be seen in What We Did On Our Holiday, an off-kilter family comedy from the creators of Outnumbered. With its story of a marriage under strain, media storm and dramatic mid-point twist, it could easily be paired up with David Fincher's thriller for a slightly eccentric double-bill.
Holiday is proof of the adage 'never judge a book by its cover'. Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin's movie is not the film its trailer makes it out to be, it's a lot more surprising and ambition than the sedate fare you'd expect based on the promos. This is a comedy that turns its clichéd »
Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. We Are the Best Three girls form a tight friendship over their shared interest in hairstyles, punk music lyrics and remaining true to themselves in a sea of disco-loving, brightly dressed automatons. Two members of the trio have never even held an instrument before, but their infectious determination drives them forward and helps them navigate the all too recognizable perils of being a twelve to fourteen year old. Lukas Moodysson‘s latest film is an absolute pleasure to watch and experience, a rare treat that fully immerses you in a world that’s foreign yet familiar with its story of the time in our lives when we still believed anything and everything was possible. Watching We Are the Best! is a genuinely positive experience, one that leaves you smiling inside and out even days later »

Hulu‘s original content doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but things may change soon as Stephen King and J.J. Abrams join the mix. They’ve announced a series order for the nine-episode event based on King’s 11/22/63. The alt-history novel that surrounds the Kennedy assassination is not only a great story, and one that King himself believes fits the format, it will be an interesting series that may open some doors.
There are a lot of alt-history works that I’d like to see, whether as series or films, and something has to sell the genre to the money people. Plus, Hulu has several fantastic shows, and you don’t hear enough about them. Maybe something that has a lot of roads to attention will pull in a big range of new potential Hulu fans, who will then check out more content.

Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is set to star in an upcoming crime thriller called The Thicket. The movie is based on a book by Joe Lansdale, and according to the press release, the book is apparently one of the "best American crime novels to emerge in recent years." If you're not familiar with the book, it has been compared to other stories such as Stand By Me and True Grit. Here's a breakdown of the story:
Set in tough, turbulent and feral East Texas in the early 20th century, this dark thriller follows the story of Jack, an innocent young man, who goes on an epic quest to rescue his sister after she has been kidnapped by a violent killer, Cut Throat Bill, and his gang. Jack enlists the help of a crafty bounty hunter named Shorty (Dinklage), a grave-digging alcoholic son of an ex-slave, and a street-smart prostitute. »

Like far-reaching ripples made by a stone plopped in a still pond, three shots in Dallas changed the course of America’s history on November 22nd, 1963. The assassination of President Kennedy has been debated and analyzed for decades, but in Stephen King’s novel, 11/22/63, one man has the chance to erase it from history in a time-bending journey that’s now being adapted into a new series for Hulu.
An upcoming Hulu original series, the adaptation of 11/22/63 will be executive produced by Stephen King, J. J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, and Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who will also script the project. J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television are backing the adaptation, which is being developed as a nine-hour event series. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements.

Chad Hodge, the creator of the Fox TV series Wayward Pines, has been tapped to adapt the first book of the Darkest Minds Ya trilogy by Alexandra Bracken. Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps banner are producing.

Minds is set after a pandemic kills most of America’s children and teenagers. When some survivors develop various superpowers, they are deemed too dangerous for society, taken from their families and placed inside internment camps. The first book tells of a

I had the amazing opportunity to attend a Q&A session with the cast of The Maze Runner, and I just had to know: If the cast could pick an ensemble of movie characters, drop them inside the Glade, and have them interact with their own characters, what movie would it be?
Their answers were quite interesting, with quite a lot of laughs in between.
Dylan O'Brien [laughing]: He wouldn't be very good at running, would he?
Kaya Scodelario: Can we have some girls, please?
Join Thomas, Dylan, Will and Kaya in the Maze, The Maze Runner opens in theaters September 19! »

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. »

Soon after the film was announced in June, there were murmurs coming from country music fans that director Marc Abraham made a mistake in casting British thespian Tom Hiddleston as the legendary Hank Williams in the upcoming biopic “I Saw The Light.” The “Avengers” actor looked to mollify the critics, telling The Daily Mail, ”It's a huge role for me and a huge responsibility. I'm going to give it everything I've got.” See video: Loki Can Sing! ‘Thor 2' Star Tom Hiddleston Karaokes ‘Stand By Me’ Over the weekend, Hiddleston proved that, at the very least, he's most definitely going »

The 1993 thriller The Vanishing directed by George Sluizier and starring Kiefer Sutherland (Stand By Me), Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart), Nancy Travis (Internal Affairs) and (briefly) Sandra Bullock (Gravity) is an American of a 1988 Franco-Dutch film also called The Vanishing…and also directed by George Sluizer!
In the remake, as in the original, a seemingly nice guy (Sutherland) goes on vacation with his girlfriend (Bullock), who vanishes without a trace at a gas station. Three years later, the nice guy is still obsessed with finding out what happened. One day, a stranger (Bridges) arrives at Jeff’s door and admits that he was responsible for her disappearance. He promises to show the now-very-addled nice guy what happened to his girl, but only if he agrees to go through exactly the same thing she did… »

"King's great to adapt," Cusack told Total Film (via ComicBook.com).
