This week: Moe, Larry and Curly get reinvented for the 21st century in "The Three Stooges," an old-school slapstick comedy directed by the Farrelly brothers.
Also new this week is the sci-fi action thriller "Lockout" starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace, Mel Gibson in "Get the Gringo," Will Ferrell's Spanish-language comedy "Casa de mi Padre," the ensemble comedy "Friends with Kids," the quirky romantic dramedy "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt, and the Blu-ray debut of Gene Kelly in "Singin' in the Rain" in celebration of the film's 60th anniversary.

Adam Scott's never have trouble landing roles over the course of his 17-year career, with the inevitable highs (partying on TV in "Party of Five" and "Party Down") and lows (paycheck movie fare like "Hellraiser: Bloodline" and "Piranha").
But Scott is on a roll now, thanks in large part to his lovable turn as Leslie Knope's love interest on NBC's beloved mocku-com "Parks and Recreation." Now movie offers are coming fast and furiously.
The affable Scott says he's grateful for every gig, but he especially enjoyed "Friends With Kids" (about a platonic pair of friends who decide to make a baby since all of their friends have them), a comedy he made with longtime friends/ power couple Jennifer Westfeldt (who wrote, directed and stars) and Jon Hamm (who produces and co-stars). Also: He gets to make out with Megan Fox. A lot. Get More »
Fans of "Arrested Development" know there is "always money in the banana stand," but now we know something else you could find there: Megan Fox.
On a recent episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show " the jaw-dropping "Transformers" star revealed that the only job outside the movie industry she ever held was at a smoothie stand during her formative years in Florida (and boy was she well formed). 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 »
Stop the presses! Apparently 'Edith Fartsberg' isn't Megan Fox's real name.
MTV grilled Fox and her "Friends with Kids" co-star Adam Scott on "The Yes/No Show," where the guests are limited to answers in the form of ... well, you get it.
Fox might be the only human on Earth who can explain the plot of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," though this is coming from an actress who claims she's never sexted before. Adams, on the other hand, enjoys bro handshakes and joy riding in cars with Paul Rudd while injuring homeless people.
Watch the quippy interview, courtesy of MTV Movies Blog, and really consider this: would you also sacrifice Scott's hand for a lifetime supply of mozzarella?
Megan Fox insists it's not a conscious career move, but take one look at the "Transformers" alum's 2012 movie lineup and you'll notice a pattern: comedy, comedy, comedy.
It all begins this week with "Friends With Kids," an indie ensemble co-starring Jennifer Westfeldt (who also wrote and directed), Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm, Adam Scott, Maya Rudolph and more, in which Fox plays the sultry young girlfriend to new father Scott. Next comes what promises to be a hilarious cameo in summer's "The Dictator" before a more prominent role in Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" spin-off "This Is Forty."
The famously candid Fox did not disappoint when we sat down with her at the Toronto International Film Festival, discussing everything from her "boring" life away from the party scene to judging her replacement in "Transformers 3" to the possibility of playing Wonder Woman (sorry fanboys … it ain't looking good).

We love the fantasy worlds we get to visit in the movies. Who can't help but get lost in the sweeping majesty of Middle-earth, the magical halls of Hogwarts and the alternate-universe Central Park where a guy can pick up a conveniently single Megan Fox.
"Friends With Kids" follows two BFFs (Adam Scott and writer-director Jennifer Westfeldt) who decide to have a baby together while keeping their relationship strictly platonic so they can date other people. This decision seems to be inspired by the fact that their newlywed pals (Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm) had sex in the bathroom of a restaurant before joining them at the table. Get More »
Megan Fox can't seem to give an interview without seeing some tiny nugget of quotage being spun into controversy.
Just look at some of the latest Fox news headlines, which quote the "Transformers" actress as saying she's removing the tattoo of Marilyn Monroe she has on her right forearm because the late icon is "a negative character" who suffered from "personal disorders and was bipolar."
"The point I was trying to make is that I feel like this person, her death was surrounded in negativity and she lived a hard and difficult life and I feel like inking something like that on your skin may not be the best thing to do," Fox told NextMovie exclusively in an interview at the Toronto Film Festival for her upcoming romantic dramedy "Friends With Kids."
"As I've grown I feel like I want very positive things around me and I feel like she suffered, not because I don't love her, but she clearly suffered as a human being." Get More »
It's that time of the year again. With summer officially over and awards season brewing, the Toronto International Film Festival launches its assault on the moviegoing masses of the world.
And what an assault it's going to be. From Ryan Gosling putting the pedal to the medal in "Drive" to George Clooney breaking hearts in "The Descendants," to both of them starring in the political drama "The Ides of March," this year's edition promises to be a doozy with a little bit of something for everyone.

It happens eventually to everyone: you're living your life, having a good time when suddenly your friends all get married and start having babies. And just like that, poof: your friends, though some mysterious mutation, suddenly aren't people at all -- they're parents.
Luckily, Hollywood has finally found an answer to the problem: Megan Fox.
We know what you're thinking. Megan Fox? Babe, yes; babies, wtf? But, it's true: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has signed on to co-star in the upcoming romcom "Friends With Kids" opposite Jon Hamm. Get More »
