They may not be Hepburn and Tracy, but Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston are quietly building up a catalog of films. "The Switch," and two "Horrible Bosses" movies have featured their talents (so too has "The Break-Up"), and now they're back again for what sounds like another middling movie.

Since its debut in 1978, Battlestar Galactica has never really been absent from popular culture. That first series may have only run for one season, but it has been rebooted, re-imagined and re-worked more times than anyone over the age of 35 would probably care to remember.
