Film Feature: The 10 Worst Films of 2010

31 December 2010 2:07 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Happy New Year’s Eve! The glorious life of the film critic – swimming pools, movies stars, etc. – unfortunately includes the necessary but cruel viewing of 2010’s worst films. Ten candidates made the low grade even after thankfully avoiding some of the more egregious sins (“Marmaduke” comes to mind). This list represents my personal worst from 2010.

To mollify the assignment, I’m adding a “mitigating factor” – a single piece of hope within each piece of dreck – to find the silver lining in losing precious time.

10. Sex and the City 2

Sex and the City 2

This über-popular HBO series, which started “innocently” enough as four single gals on the town in New York City, morphed into the type of relationships and situations that makes every sitcom jump the shark – marriages, babies, menopause. The first film breakout was a surprise hit in 2008, but had the aforementioned »

Give us back this day our Daily Show | Sarfraz Manzoor

The decision to drop Jon Stewart's show is a huge loss for all those who treasure proper television

So, 2010, a miserable year that has given us David Cameron and the vajazzle, ends with the news that The Daily Show, my favourite TV programme, is being taken off the air. More4 has announced it would no longer broadcast it every night; instead, it would run a weekly round-up edition.

It is a joke that would probably amuse the show's host, Jon Stewart: a programme with "daily" in the title is being broadcast weekly. I would laugh if I wasn't feeling so sad. I am a man of ritual. During the last five years, my life has seen plenty of changes – I have moved home, written a book and got married – but one ritual I have maintained is every evening I have stopped to watch The Daily Show "with Jon Stewart »

Jon Stewart: Demagogue Or The Most Rational Man On Television?

23 December 2010 9:39 AM, PST | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart is being credited by many for igniting the media and public outcry that ultimately resulted in passage of the 9/11 First Responders Bill. However, not everyone is praising the comedic host, as John McCormack of The Weekly Standard suggests Stewart's crusade for legislation and self-appointment as the "arbiter of what political beliefs are 'insane'" have made Stewart more of a demagogue than a respected journalist. No matter what you call Stewart, his growing influence is proving hard for anyone to ignore. »

Ed Helms Leaves His Comfort Zone In ‘Cedar Rapids’ Trailer

23 December 2010 8:24 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Tim Lippe clearly doesn’t get out much… like, ever. The man has been cooped up in his quiet little hometown of Brown Valley, Wisconsin his entire life, selling insurance, never venturing into the outside world.

Now, in order to save his company, Tim has to leave his safety zone to attend an insurance convention in the bustling big city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and in true fish out of water fashion he is completely clueless.

Playing Tim in the February comedy “Cedar Rapids” is “The Daily Show’s” Ed Helms, who has made repressed goobers his specialty in “The Office” and “The Hangover.” Also along for this adventure of discovery is the great John C. Reilly as a hotshot salesman and Sigourney Weaver as the 7th grade teacher Tim is “pre-engaged” to. Fans of “The Wire” will appreciate one moment in particular from Isiah Whitlock Jr. in the trailer. »

First Trailer For Cedar Rapids Turns Ed Helms Into A Leading Man

22 December 2010 4:17 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ed Helms is the perfect example of how someone with a lot of talent can find his way into the film industry. Kicking off his career on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart back in 2002, the comedian has slowly been climbing up the ranks, joining the cast of The Office before landing his first major film role in The Hangover. Playing Dr. Stu Price was only a supporting role, however. Now he's the leading man in Cedar Rapids. Apple has posted the first trailer for the Fox Searchlight release which will have its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month. In the film, Helms plays Tim Lippe, a naive insurance salesman who tries to make his father proud when traveling to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for an Insurance Conference. Never having traveled out of his home town, his father drives home one very important piece of advice: stay away from »

As if Jon Stewart hasn't won enough awards ...

22 December 2010 11:42 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

As if Jon Stewart hasn't won enough awards, now he suggests he might win one more – for his aimless, (but very funny) rambling with recent "Daily Show" guest Ricky Gervais. Stewart and Gervais acted completely silly throughout the segment, making fun of everything from Stephen Hawking to Jay Leno to HBO's slogan. Acknowledging that they had ventured off script, Stewart referred to how other TV emcees shun improvisation. "So many of these hosts of these shows prepare," he giggled to Gervais. "Who needs that?" "Are you saying that we're going to put this interview out? What we just said?" Gervais gasped. "I wouldn't be surprised if we win some type of award," Stewart said. "I don't know what that award would be …" Gervais suggested it would be called the "F---ed up Idiots Award." The audience cheered. Maybe even an Emmy – even for this loosey-goosey episode? »

Stewart Stirred the Pot on 9/11 Health Bill: White House

22 December 2010 5:45 AM, PST | newser.com | See recent newser news »

Jon Stewart is getting a lot of credit for the attention he brought to the 9/11 first responders bill—including the White House itself. The Daily Show host “put the awareness around this legislation,” says Robert Gibbs. “If there's the ability for that to sort of break through in our political environment, I think there's a good chance that he can help do that.” Others on Capitol Hill are bestowing similar praise upon Stewart for devoting an entire show to the health bill , turning it “into the national issue it always should have been,” says Sen. Chuck Schumer. “He did »

Shep Smith Calls Out Sen. Coburn Over His Threat To Block 9/11 First-Responders Bill

21 December 2010 12:43 PM, PST | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

Fox News Shepard Smith has been way out ahead of the 9/11 First-Responders Bill. Last Friday, after The Daily Show dedicated most of the previous night's program to the oddly controversial bill, Smith piled on by asking how congressional members who have held up the bill providing health care to emergency relief workers on 9/11 "sleep at night." Yesterday he called out ever single Gop lawmaker by name who turned down a request to join him on his show. Today? It was Senator Tom Coburn who drew Shep's ire. »

Movie Ads: The Worst Puns Of 2010

21 December 2010 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Features, Cinematical

On the Nov. 29 episode of 'The Daily Show', Jon Stewart dedicated a segment to various newscasters using the most deadly of segues to introduce their stories -- the pun. It was a glorious thrashing of cheap writing -- some of which outlined serious subject matter -- designed to make its mouthpieces appear clever. Except nobody looks clever delivering a pun without the wink-wink of its ridiculousness.

The film criticism side of journalism just waved goodbye to "The King of the Pun", Gene Shalit, who left 'The Today Show' just a few weeks before the above episode aired. Where would the medium be today without films like 'Blood Diamond' being referred to as "a gem of a movie," or that 'Bee Movie' "is an A"? Probably better off. Especially since Shalit's brand of criticism is not dead yet, since we can see in »

Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn Join Sarah Jessica Parker Comedy

21 December 2010 5:27 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sarah Jessica Parker’s latest rom-com, I Don’t Know How She Does It, based on the popular Allison Pearson book, will have the stylish actress playing a Wall Street financial type, who has to juggle work, raising her kids, and–one assumes—finding true love. So, this flick will not likely be something men line up for.

But hey, men! Don’t be put off by the lame plot, the fact that Sjp tends to make truly terrible movies, or that this will feature a bunch of characters painfully unaware of financial troubles. (Recession? What recession? That’s Sarah’s motto!) Because the La Times reports, that the producers have added some incentive just for you!

Christina Hendricks (the gorgeous Joan from Mad Men) and “Twitter sensation” Olivia Munn (whose addition to The Daily Show sparked a wild—but thankfully brief—backlash from some female viewers) have joined the cast, »

Betty White named 'Entertainer Of The Year'

The Associated Press has voted Betty White 'Entertainer Of The Year'. Voters were asked to choose stars who had the most influence on culture and the entertainment world in 2010. The 88-year-old actress called the honour "ridiculous", adding: "They haven't caught on to me, and I hope they never do." White beat out top contenders including the cast of Glee, who got the second-most votes, while James Cameron, Conan O’Brien and the iPod all tied for third. The Daily Show host Jon (more) »

Jack Black Dominates The Holiday Version Of The 'Late Night Lineup'

20 December 2010 6:30 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

With Christmas on a Saturday this year, that means that the actual holiday is this Friday, December 24. And with the holiday pushed up a day, that means that it's essentially a short week for most people — including late night talk shows hosts. The ones who are working this week (and a handful are on vacation entirely) are running short, even though there are plenty of Christmas movies and year-end events to promote. David Letterman is taking Friday off but working the rest of the week, with shows featuring Jack Black (Monday, December 20), Jamie Foxx (Tuesday, December 21) and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals (Wednesday, December 22). Over on "The Tonight Show," Jay Leno is countering with the recently-retired Larry King (Monday), Emma Stone (Tuesday) and Javier Bardem (Wednesday).

Jimmy Kimmel is taking a vacation, but the other Jimmy (that's Fallon) is hard at work this week with Jason Segel and "True Grit" phenom »
