Not all movie stars are created equal. Some are tall. Some are short. Some spend their free time on philanthropy. Some spend their free time in jail. And some secretly gave children up for adoption. Wait; that's actually Tina Fey's character in "Admission" — not to be confused with the real Tina Fey, who (at the time of this posting) has not put any of her offspring up for adoption. Get More »
Okay, so here's a movie pitch for you: Take a group of mismatched friends, send them out for an evening of drunken revelry and then watch the hilarity ensue when they try to figure out just what the heck they did. Guaranteed hit, right?
But we're not describing the plot of "The Hangover" — we're actually describing the plot of the upcoming teen comedy "21 and Over," which is basically exactly like "The Hangover" except, you know, with college students in it.
"21 and Over" is hardly the first film to blantly remake another movie, book or play for a teenage crowd; it's actually a longstanding tradition in Hollywood. So in honor of "21 and Over's" brazen replication, here's a closer look at it and six other films like it. Get More »

There are about a billion tumblrs out there, covering everything from hilarious cat pictures (there are quite a few of those, actually) to how to restore a first generation Ford Mustang to stunning facts about the sun.

Ah, Hanukah! Festival of Lights! A time for Jews everywhere to get together in a spirit of peace, give gifts and sing songs. It's also a time for gentiles everywhere to ask questions like "So... what's the deal with Hanukah?" and "How do you spell Chanukah?" and "Why does it keep moving around the calendar like a celebratory hobo?"
These are good questions; deep questions. And who better to ask than Hollywood's Jewish stars! But who's Jewish? It's no shock that certain actors are from the tribe (shalom, Sasha Baron Cohen!), but Zac Efron? Get More »
This week: Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy that began with "Batman Begins" and earned Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar for his performance in "The Dark Knight" concludes with "The Dark Knight Rises," which introduces the metal-masked Bane (Tom Hardy) and Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Anne Hathaway) to Gotham City.
With the overwhelming success of "The Avengers" this summer, it pretty much became a no-brainer that Warner Bros. would be fast-tracking a "Justice League" movie starring their own iconic superheroes, such as Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. But while Marvel has spent years carefully creating their shared universe, Warner Bros. has been going the opposite direction, with none of their superhero films having any connection to each other. So how are they going to set up "Justice League?"
Well, how about by making it a direct sequel to "The Dark Knight Rises?" Get More »
Truly, to not love Joseph Gordon-Levitt is to not be a carbon-based form of life. Which is a cool way of saying it's just not possible.
He stole our hearts in "(500) Days of Summer," he broke our hearts in "50/50" and he picked up where Batman left off in "The Dark Knight Rises." He also floated around a hotel hallway in a perfectly tailored three-piece suit in "Inception" and sometimes wears bow ties to premieres without any sense of irony whatsoever. How could this guy not be a total heartthrob?
