Judd Apatow, Hollywood's godfather of raunchy and sophisticated humor, is responsible for producing last year's breakout comedy "Bridesmaids." So it's no surprise that this year's best bet to succeed the wedding-centered laughfest is "The Five-Year Engagement," yet another marriage-minded, Apatow-produced movie.
Written by Jason Segel and his screenwriting partner Nicholas Stoller, who also directed, "The Five-Year Engagement" follows Tom (Segel) and Violet (Emily Blunt), a San Francisco couple whose engagement is postponed again and again when Violet is offered a postdoctorate fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
The plot might sound like dozens of stereotypical rom-coms, but here are five reasons "The Five-Year Engagement" could be this year's "Bridesmaids." Get More »

Of course, that film is "Friends With Kids" and the writer-director-star is Jennifer Westfeldt, Hamm's girlfriend of 14 years.
"Kids" is an ensemble indie comedy about best buds (Westfeldt and Adam Scott) who, after watching all their couple friends start families, decide to procreate platonically. In a strange, bizarro world twist on "Bridesmaids," Hamm and Kristen Wiig make one of those friend pairings, while co-stars of the summer hit, Maya Rudolph and Chris O'Dowd, form another.
Hamm – who also produced – told us about working with his woman in creating an anti-explosion, anti-"Twilight," full-on adult movie. And get your mind out of the gutter, he doesn't mean porn. Get More »

Here's some inside intel for casual movie fans contemplating their Oscar predictions: By the time the Academy Awards roll around, we know who's going to win in pretty much every major category.
Sure, there can be surprises and the occasional too-close-to-call race, but after so many other award functions play out in the lead-up to Oscar night, from the Critics Choice to the Golden Globes to the all the guild gatherings, patterns emerge and some favorites appear unbeatable.
That's why if you're about to head to Vegas (Editor's note: NextMovie does not condone gambling, unless you're sharing …) and lay down some scratch on "The Artist" winning Best Picture, the rewards, at this point, won't be too tempting. Get More »
