Review by Barbara Snitzer
Weddings are supposed to be happy occasions, and not just because they are a cash cow for all the meaningless businesses depicted on reality shows. Our culture inculcates the ceremony as a benchmark that will enhance our lives and our society. If it were not so important, those who have been denied the right to marry would not be fighting so hard to be allowed to. The marriage ceremony has been the subject of many movies, particularly comedies, as it is such a universal experience.
Considering these points, one would think that a comedy called The Big Wedding starring A-list and Oscar-winning actors would be a slam-dunk hit, welcomed by critics and audiences with open arms.
One would be wrong.
The Big Wedding is generating much scorn from the critics; it remains to be seen whether moviegoers will be turned off by their censure.
Why all the hate? »

Admission movie: Domestic Box office bomb Paul Rudd hasn't been at all lucky at the Us/Canada box office. His latest star vehicle, the Paul Weitz-directed (About a Boy, In Good Company) comedy Admission, co-starring 30 Rock's Tina Fey, is his most recent box-office flop, following the costly James L. Brooks / Reese Witherspoon comedy How Do You Know ($30.21m), Jesse Peretz's Our Idiot Brother ($24.81m domestic), and David Wain / Jennifer Aniston's Wanderlust ($17.45m), plus Judd Apatow's commercial disappointment This Is 40 ($67.54m). (Pictured above: The likable Paul Rudd in the un-liked Admission.) Weitz's film pulled in an estimated $6.44 million at 2,160 Us and Canada sites this weekend (March 22 - 24), as per studio figures found on the web site Box Office Mojo. That's represents Rudd's second worst wide-release debut ever (movie screening at more than 1,000 venues), trailing only another comedy, Jeff Lowell's Over Her Dead Body, starring / Lake Bell and Eva Longoria, »

Review Luke Savage 12 Mar 2013 - 06:52
I blame Anchorman. Nine years on, Adam McKay and Will Ferrell’s newsroom masterpiece is still the torch bearer for how good we can have it. How inspired and offbeat a comedy ensemble can be when it tries hard enough.
It’s also a marker for what to do with Steve Carrell when you’re not having him be the put-upon everyman, the sad sucker forced to deal with more than he wants to. In Anchorman, his Brick Tamland was like a pre-cursor to Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk in Avengers Assemble: ‘Hey, let’s give this guy the movie’s killer moments, but not have him be on screen that much’.
It went against his stock-in-trade that’s worked pretty well for the most part (‘Be a spy! »
Douglas, Rudd, Aniston, and Foxx: 85th Academy Awards ceremony presenters Paul Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, and Best Actor Academy Award winners Jamie Foxx and Michael Douglas will be presenters at the 85th Academy Awards show, producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have said. A former TV star (Friends), Aniston's film appearances includes those in The Break-Up, The Switch, Bruce Almighty, Marley and Me, with Owen Wilson, Along Came Polly, The Good Girl and Office Space. Most recently, Aniston and Paul Rudd were featured in the critical and box-office flop Wanderlust. The screen couple had better luck with the romantic comedy-drama The Object of My Affection, which came out in the late 1990s. Rudd, for his part, has been featured in both leading and supporting roles in more than 50 motion pictures, frequently in broad, low-brow comedies. Among his credits are the Judd Apatow-directed comedy This Is 40, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, I Love You, »

Exclusive: Comedy Central has put in development River Dogs, a comedy written, executive produced by and starring actress-comedian Andrea Savage (Dinner For Schmucks). Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Prods, River Dogs follows an odd group of young poker pros who are dying to prove to the world that they are legitimate “athletes,” but the very thing that makes them great at poker makes them totally awkward in real life. The project reunites Savage with Gary Sanchez — she is probably best known for her role in the company’s comedy feature Step Brothers. Savage, repped by UTA and Mosaic, sold a comedy project to ABC through Sony TV and Fanfare earlier this season and will next be seen in You’re Not You opposite Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum. »

Check out the trailer below the details to see if it might be something up your alley. I think it is. Even though it's not a genre film, it appears to promise an ample amount of blood and sadistic tendencies.
When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naïve college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches her breaking point, and is drawn into coworker Lu’s (Nicole Laliberte) twisted plan for revenge. Together, the two embark on a gruesome killing spree, terrorizing and brutally murdering not just their attackers, »
"Bad Girls Don't Cry. They Get Even."
Here's a trailer for an interestingly twisted looking revenge thriller called Girls Against Boys that follows a couple of girls who go on a man torture and killing spree. The movie looks like it's pretty crazy, I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie when I first heard about it, but damn.

Bad Girls Don't Cry. They Get Even. Something a little wicked to kick off this week. Anchor Bay Films has released a full trailer for Austin Chick's Girls Against Boys, an indie revenge horror thriller about the girls being the bad guys this time. Danielle Panabaker (seen in Sky High, Mr. Brooks, The Crazies, The Ward, Piranha 3Dd) stars as a college student who gets into a plan of revenge with her friend Lu, played by Nicole Laliberte (seen in Dinner for Schmucks, Shouting Secrets - the red head). This actually looks a lot crazier than I was expecting, but seductively entertaining with guns, swords, and everything else. Have fun! Watch the official Us trailer for Austin Chick's Girls Against Boys, in high def from Apple: When Shae (Danielle Panabaker), a naive college student, is tormented by several men in a matter of days, she reaches a breaking »
