It's not always smiles behind the camera, as this list of feuding co-stars proves. I Love Trouble, indeed...
It's a fallacy that everyone gets on together on a movie set. Just as in an everyday office, some people get on better with others. That's as you might expect. But when it comes to film, occasionally a disagreement between two stars becomes oh-so-apparent to pretty much anyone in the stalls at their local Odeon.
This isn't designed by any measure to be a definitive list (yep, Swayze and Jennifer Grey weren't best chums making Dirty Dancing), but here are some of the more interesting examples of where co-stars simply didn't get on...
To date, we struggle to think of a more bizarre screen combination for a romantic blockbuster than that of I Love Trouble. The movie, a »
It's finally Labor Day Weekend, which means the summer movie going season is officially closed for business starting this Monday. As summer winds down, and we head into September, many movie fans have made one thing very clear. They think this summer has been a complete wash! But is this summer any different than last summer, or the summer before that? How about a decade removed? Did we have bombs as big as The Lone Ranger, R.I.P.D. and After Earth ten years ago? (Yeah, we did, and it was called Gigli.)
We've decided to take a look at how this summer stacks up to a bygone era. Was 2003 a better year for movies? Or did we actually have it pretty good here in 2013 with Iron Man 3, Man of Steel and Elysium (just to name a few of the better one that have played out over the »
Dennis Burkley, a character actor known for his brawny roles as truckers, bikers and rednecks, along with a stint as the voice of Principal Moss on Fox’s “King of the Hill,” died in his sleep in Sherman Oaks, Calif. on Sunday. He was 67.
Burkley was born in Van Nuys, Calif. but grew up in a small town outside of Dallas, where he picked up his Southern charm. Standing at 6 foot 3 inches, he often wore a scruffy beard and a Southern accent in his character roles, beginning his acting career in the early 1970s that included more than 130 film and TV credits.
After attending high school, he received his master’s in theater at Texas Christian U. in Fort Worth and then headed back to Los Angeles.

Baseball Biopic Surpassing Expectations: Will Easily Top Domestic B.O. Chart This Weekend Written and directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential screenwriter), and starring Chadwick Boseman as pioneering black baseball player Jackie Robinson and veteran Harrison Ford as the Brooklyn Dodgers' team executive Branch Rickey, the biopic 42 was the no. 1 movie at Friday's domestic box office; it'll surely be the weekend's top film, too. As per early, rough estimates found on the web site Deadline.com, the period drama will be the only movie grossing more than $20 million at the domestic box office. (See below more information about Scary Movie 5 and last weekend's holdovers.) (Pictured above are an unrecognizable Ford as the Brooklyn Dodgers' team executive Branch Rickey and Boseman wearing Robinson's baseball uniform.) The 42 movie brought in an estiamted $8.5 million at 3,003 U.S. and Canada venues on Friday (April 12) and by Sunday evening may possibly »

Either David Zucker is trying to distract us from his latest turkey or we're all staring down the barrel of another Naked Gun movie
Trying to sell an inferior product to a sceptical public is no fun. Faced with this task, it's common for people in the movie business to try and distract us by claiming they are reviving a long-lost greatest hit.
To this day, Kiefer Sutherland's strategy for promoting his current series Touch is to bang on relentlessly about how he wants to make a 24 movie. Then there's Harrison Ford, who spent half a decade manfully propping up dreck such as Hollywood Homicide and Firewall by hinting at the return of Indiana Jones. The fact that Indiana Jones did eventually return, but as the world's most disappointing fridge-riding alien hunter, is simply an unfortunate by-product of this.
So there's a chance that David Zucker doesn't really want »

“Tolerating your ridiculousness is an assignment which I am no longer capable of preforming”
Comedy is very hard to pull off. It takes timing, finesse, restraint, and intelligence. Some people have it, and other’s do not. While many comics have funny moments in them, many simply shy away from outright comedy. It’s easier to have epic battles in outer-space with quirky one-liners than it is to have a whole comic devote solely to making the reader laugh. Buddy Cops, a one-shot from Dark Horse Comics is looking to fill that roll, but does it succeed?
The short answer is; sometimes. Since the original 48 Hrs film with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte, the buddy cop formula has been a mainstay of modern movies. Classics, such as Lethal Weapon, and not-so classics, such as Hollywood Homicide, have »
