The mustache isn't just facial hair. It's an art form, one few are able to master.
In honor of Movember, we salute some of the finest examples of the mustache in cinema, from Robert Pattinson's bizarre turn as Salvador Dali in "Little Ashes" to Tom Selleck in just about everything. The extreme levels of testosterone may make you feel a little woozy, but that's all part of the awesome.
Browse the most masculine gallery ever and wish you could grow a mustache as mighty.
As the 2012 presidential election quickly approaches (tomorrow! eek!), Americans must carefully analyze each candidate's policies and personalities to determine who they want to lead the country for the next four years.
And then there's the funnier — but not any less absurd — election at the center of "The Campaign," a new political satire pitting Will Ferrell's charismatic, gaffe-prone incumbent against Zach Galifianakis's Washington outsider in a North Carolina congressional race.
We're not sure we'd vote for either of these guys in real life, but you know who we would vote for? Yoda. And The Dude. And after "The Avengers," Hulk would most definitely get our endorsement.
The Big Apple is feeling Golden Delicious tonight as it celebrates the Giants 21-to-17 victory over the New England Patriots, but Hollywood is also getting a Gatorade shower. The Super Bowl is the biggest advertising day of the year, and the studios blitzed TV viewers with new looks at their coolest flicks.
It's also when different companies trot out serious big gun celebrities to pimp their rides. So are you feeling lucky, punk? We're chugging Pepto Bismol, recycling our empty beer bottles, and looking back at the best movie moments during this year's big game.
Welcome to Super Bowl… PSYCHE!
Universal Studios Hollywood pulled some ol' fakeout interrupted programming, with Optimus Prime and Megatron warning us that we'll perish if we don't hop on "Transformers: The Ride 3-D" this May. Hard sell, guys. Get More »
Everyone's favorite teenage delinquent is back, but this time he's not cruising in some vintage convertible, because he's cruising in a Honda. And, oh yeah, he's not exactly a teenager anymore. That's right: Matthew Broderick has reprised his (possibly) most famous role — as Ferris Bueller.
This time around, instead of skipping class, Bueller is skipping work. Yes, Bueller is a movie star. And yes, the studio is pissed. But Bueller's to cool for school the set. He spends his day off at the carnival, the museum, even… a horse race? Throw in a kiss with a random woman and a giant stuffed panda decoy and you've got the makings of another number one hit.

"Ferris Bueller's Day Off," teen bard John Hughes' timeless ode to seizing the moment, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. That's 25 years of playing hooky, singing "Danke Schön" and impersonating Abe Froman. The 1986 comedy continues to strike such a deep chord because its trio of resourceful high schoolers represents more than just a case of senioritis -- it's about taking time out to smell the roses, even in Chicago.

Have you ever wandered into your grandma's house and, among the endless array of dusty knick-knacks, worn out dedicates and gaudy antiques, thought "Ferris Bueller would fit in great here?"
If so, thank goodness! We knew we weren't the only ones!
Within the sea of John Hughes' '80s oeuvre, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" would seem to be the least emotionally complicated film: High school kid and his friends blow off school, party in Chicago and foil a jerky school principal. It's like an episode of "The Simpsons" (with Ferris as Bart and Rooney as Homer, natch), except with less subtext.
Which is why turning this particular Matthew Broderick vehicle into a moody, coming-of-age drama via the magic of modern video editing (and the fine folks at New York Magazine's Vulture) is so effective. Get More »
The new comedy "Take Me Home Tonight" celebrates the 1980s and all its excesses, from Mercedes-worship to Frankie Goes To Hollywood telling us all to relax.
The '80s was a time of rampant materialism and mohawks, and the only way people got through it -- like WWII -- was with laughter.
In honor of Topher Grace's nostalgic comedy, we're celebrating the 25 most-uniquely only-in-the-80's comedies, the ones where the hair was froofy, Eddie Murphy still brought the funny, and the geek inherited the Earth. Get More »
