‘An American Pickle’, the Film Where Seth Rogen is Pickled for 100 Years, Headed to HBO Max

Almost two years ago, word broke that Seth Rogen was set to star in a movie where he falls into a pickle vat and is brined for 100 years.

The Infamous ‘Dolittle’ Dragon Fart Scene Was Apparently Robert Downey Jr.’s Idea

The post-mortem for Universal’s big-budget disaster Dolittle continues, as the film continues to flounder at the box office and lose millions for the studio. More reports have emerged of the behind-the-scenes troubles that plagued Dolittle, which has struggled to break even with its costly $175 million budget. However, surprisingly, this wasn’t a case of too much studio interference or bad test screenings, but of a star who pitched the idea of a dragon farting in his face. A new report from ...

Even though the script for Bad Boys II was written by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump) and Jerry Stahl (Moonlighting, Twin Peaks), there was a rewrite done by The 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up writer/director Judd Apatow, and he asked Superbad and Pineapple Express writers Seth Rogen and Evan Go...

The 10 Best Romantic Comedies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) In some ways, the past decade was a bit of a desert when it comes to romantic comedies. The rom-com’s mainstream heyday was over with the onset of our current millennium, which brought about dreck like Gigli and The Hottie and the Nottie . But with the dearth of quality mainstream rom-coms came the birth of the indie and the subversive rom-com – and that’s when things got interesting.  So let’s talk about the ten best romantic c...

David Chang’s new Netflix show

Anthony Bourdain’s television shows No Reservations and Parts Unknown were, on paper, supposed to be about food. The chef-turned-globe-trotter traveled the world trying cuisines unfamiliar to many Americans, offering his witty and insightful commentary along the way. Sounds like a pretty straightforward premise, but the Emmy- and Peabody-award-winning shows ended up remaking the travel docu-series genre. It’s difficult to overstate Bourdain’s influence: He merged food and politics in the pub...

How ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ fulfills a childhood dream — with explosions — for O’Shea Jackson Jr.

O’Shea Jackson Jr. had a clear plan after he made his screen debut in “Straight Outta Compton,” playing his own father, the rapper Ice Cube, in the 2015 biopic about the influential rap group NWA. “I wanted to take a bunch of roles that were night and day,” Jackson says. “I just wanted to show versatility.” So he signed onto the dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West” and then flexed his action movie muscles in the heist flick “Den Of Thieves,” and then, well, Godzilla stomped all over his plans, Jackson...

Long Shot Review – Hollywood Contrivance Misses An Opportunity

Long Shot is a movie that is going to fly under the radar for a lot of folks, despite stars that should be able to pull in decent crowds, and that’s owing in part to the fact that audiences know what to expect from workaday rom-coms that can’t help but feel like they’re created by crowdsourcing. That’s unfortunate here, because Long Shot actually has a lot going for it, and could have managed to revitalize a staple genre… if it hadn’t, well, been created at least by an overlarge committee, if...

Calling All Adults

If you're a lover of romantic comedy, and you've been complaining about the dearth of rom-coms that have the sophistication, the wordplay and banter, and the substantive subject matter - let alone the laughs - that harken back to the genre's golden age, now is the time for you to do the equivalent of showing up at the ballot box for the next election: Go to your local theater and see Long Shot. I suggest this not because Long Shot is the best romantic comedy ever (it's not), but...
