Anna Faris & Dan Fogler Talk About "Take Me Home Tonight!" 


I saw Anna Faris again, this time for "Take Me Home Tonight," a funny comedy that would have made John Hughes proud. Together with co-star Dan Fogler, we talk about their involvement with the film, Fogler's scene-stealing moments in the movie, and their favorite 80s music, movies, and icons.



Here's more info on the film from Yahoo:

Recent MIT grad Matt Franklin should be working for a Fortune 500 company and starting his upward climb to full-fledged yuppie-hood. Instead, the directionless 23-year-old confounds family and friends by taking a part-time job behind the counter of a video store at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. But Matt's silent protest against maturity comes to a screeching halt once his unrequited high school crush, Tori Frederking, walks into the store. When she invites him to an epic, end-of-summer party, Matt thinks he finally might have a chance with the girl of his dreams. With his cynical twin sister Wendy and best friend Barry, Matt embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime evening. From stealing a car to a marriage proposal to an indescribable, no-holds-barred dance-off, these friends share experiences that will change the course of their lives on one unforgettable night in the Go-Go '80s.

Ed Helms Talks About "Cedar Rapids" and Teases Us About "The Hangover 2!" 


The funny Ed Helms talks about his new raunchy but sweet movie, "Cedar Rapids" out in theaters now from Fox Searchlight. In this interview, we talked about his involvement with the movie, working with a great comedic cast, and what we can expect at the upcoming "The Hangover 2!"



Here's more details on "Cedar Rapids" from Yahoo:

To call insurance agent Tim Lippe, "naïve" is a gross understatement. He's never left his small hometown. He's never stayed at a hotel. And he's never experienced anything like Cedar Rapids, Iowa.Sent to represent his company at the annual insurance convention, Tim is soon distracted by three convention veterans who will show him the ropes and push his boundaries. For a guy who plays everything by the book, this convention will be anything but conventional.

Cast and Credits

Starring: Ed Helms, John C. Reilly, Anne Heche, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Stephen Root
Directed by: Miguel Arteta
Produced by: Ed Helms, Alexander Payne, Jim Burke

"Rango" Movie Review! Check Out Johnny Depp as a Reaganesque Hero! 


Johnny Depp has not been on top of his game recently. His performance in the much-maligned “The Tourist” was largely forgettable, and I would argue that his Mad Hatter portrayal in “Alice in Wonderland” was an offshoot of his Willie Wonka role in “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.”


So I’m happy to report that my faith in Depp has been restored with his voice work as a lizard in the new animated tale “Rango.” And it took his “Pirates of the Caribbean” director, Gore Verbinski, to get his groove back. Read More...

"The King's Speech" Triumphant! Film Tops 83rd Academy Awards! Check Out Complete List of Winners and Nominees! 


Tom Hooper's "The King's Speech" lorded over the festivities at the 83rd annual Academy Awards. The film, nominated for 12 Oscars, won 4 including Best Picture, Director for Tom Hooper, Actor for King Colin Firth, and Original Screenplay for David Seidler.

David Fincher's "The Social Network" took home 3 awards including Best Film Editing, Original Score for Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin.

(For my minute-by-minute look at the 2011 Oscars, please click here, trust me, it's fun!)

As expected, Natalie Portman took home Oscar gold for her performance as a delusional ballerina in "Black Swan." "The Fighter" yielded the Best Supporting performances of the year with Christian Bale winning Best Supporting Actor and Melissa Leo taking home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

Christopher Nolan's "Inception" took home most of the technical categories including Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, and Best Cinematography for Wally Pfister.

Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" received two Oscars with Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.

Like I've said before, there was no clear-cut favorite, the Academy shared Oscar wealth among multiple movies. It was fun, zippy awards night and James Franco and Anne Hathaway provided commendable jobs with their hosting duties.
