Andy Warhol famously said, "Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets," but clearly he never saw "Monster's Ball." If uncomfortably awkward love scenes don't bother you, this weekend's indie offerings may be just for you.
Check out "The Sessions," featuring an oft-naked Helen Hunt as a sexual surrogate trying to pleasure a disabled virgin (John Hawkes). And, if that's not enough, there's also "The First Time," which highlights a laughably awful (or realistic, depending on your experience) adolescent deflowering.
From the comedic to the absurd to the downright depressing, here are 12 cringe-inducing sex scenes we've compiled for your viewing (dis)pleasure. Get More »
The first full-length glimpse of "This Is 40," Judd Apatow's (unofficial) sequel to "Knocked Up," is finally here. Well, it's online anyway.
The trailer reveals a story based on the day-to-day lives of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann,who happens to be Apatow's real-life wife)—Katherine Heigl's sister and brother-in-law from the 2007 hit "Knocked Up." It aims to show the reality of aging-- your kids growing up, your body dropping down-- with enough laughs to make us all feel better about our inevitable decline becoming older and wiser. Get More »
You've often heard women who are pregnant say they've never felt more feminine or sexier. But how does that work when they're just acting like they're pregnant?
With the group of pregnancies being showcased in the new ensemble comedy "What to Expect When You're Expecting," with Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, Brooklyn Decker and Anna Kendrick all with child, we decided to take a look at some other movies where hot actresses are sporting a baby bump on screen.
Just how hot are they within those nine months leading up to the big event? You be the judge.
With only a few leading roles under his belt, 27-year-old Jonah Hill has secured his place as one of young Hollywood's top funnymen by crafting characters who are crude, horny yet eerily relatable to most audiences.
His recent move to dramatic fare like “Moneyball” -- and his even more dramatic weight loss -- hasn't robbed him of his comedic talents (see "21 Jump Street" trailer); and with "The Sitter," we see Hill in his usual form. Yes, he shot it before losing the weight, but we mean his knack for being playfully offensive while also portraying a lovable guy next door.
In only six years, Hill has compiled an impressive number of funny moments on screen. Here we take a look at his top nine (warning: some videos are NSFW). Get More »
As we're all aware, Hollywood movies don't just play in U.S. theaters; they get released all over the world. And they make big bucks all over the world, too.
But obviously, the rest of the globe doesn't necessarily speak English, so the titles we're familiar with here get translated abroad. At times, something gets lost in translation. Hilariously so.
Can you guess which movie "If You Leave Me, I Delete You" is? How about "Santa Is a Pervert"? In honor of the Israeli title for "Puss in Boots," i.e., "Shrek's Cat" (ooh, Puss wouldn't like that one), we re-designed posters for 15 twisted title translations that made us laugh in multiple languages.
Everyone has their own personal favorite genre, but comedy is arguably the most universal. Have you ever met someone who's said, "I don't like to laugh"? Neither have we.
The past decade has seen filmmakers like Adam McKay and Judd Apatow rise from obscurity onto the A-list, while actors like Seth Rogen and Zach Galifianakis have gone from esoteric television shows to big-budget movies.
But enough talk. Read. Argue. Yell at us. You can debate the order of these films all you want, but you can't deny the humor of any of them. Get More »
Every once in awhile, the Comedy Gods put together a director/star combo so pitch-perfect that the world can't help but rejoice, be it John Landis and Eddie Murphy, Harold Ramis and Bill Murray, or Renny Harlin and those sharks in "Deep Blue Sea."
Matching Judd Apatow and Albert Brooks is just such an instance.
Deadline has served us the good news that Brooks will be joining Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, and the just-cast Megan Fox in writer/director Apatow's non-sequel sequel to "Knocked Up." Brooks will play the father of Paul Rudd's character, perhaps in only a minor few scenes like Harold Ramis had with Rogen in the first one, but hopefully a more substantial role involving shenanigans of some kind.

The current king of big screencomedy, Judd Apatow, loves him some semi-sequels.
This past year, he produced "Get Him to the Greek," a tangent movie to "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" that followed Russell Brand and 2009, there were early rumblings of a "Funny People" spin-off starring Aziz Ansari's Randy character. Now he's brewing up a don't-call-it-a-sequel sequel to "Knocked Up" - but will star Seth Rogen return?
Oh, that devious Judd Apatow.
Remember way back when it was announced that Russell Brand would be reprising his role as rocker Aldous Snow in a new movie, only it turned out to be "Get Him to the Greek" instead of, you know, "Forgetting Sarah Marshall 2?" Well, now he's announced the details of his latest project and it seems to be a sequel to "Knocked Up."
Or is it? Get More »
In "Life As We Know It," Holly (Katherine Heigl) and Eric (Josh Duhamel) find that life as they know it comes to a screeching halt when their friends, who named them as godparents and guardians of their daughter, die. The pair, who've disliked each other since going on a disastrous date, become an instant family with baby Sophie, but they have no clue what parenting involves.
Too bad they didn't reorder their Netflix queue, because, as that famous saying goes (OK, the famous saying we just made up), everything we ever needed to know about parenting, we learned from baby movies. Get More »
