The MTV Movie Awards turns 22 this Sunday, April 14, which means yes, our beloved awards show has been drinking legally for a year.
In people years, the MTV Movie Awards still wouldn't be able to rent a car at the regular rate; but in the accolades-passing-out universe, 22 consecutive years of awarding popcorn statues to the A-list, producing the funniest movie spoofs ever, trying to wrangle Jim Carrey through his many stunts and witnessing the horror that was Borat's booty in Eminem's face has made it one of the most fun, most can't-be-missed awards shows in all Awards Show Land.

This week, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner reprise their beloved "Twilight" characters on screen one last time in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the final chapter in the young-adult series based on the books by Stephenie Meyer.
In "Take This Waltz," Margot (Michelle Williams) has a good life. She’s happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), the successful author of a chicken cookbook, and they’re living comfortably. If you were a fly on the wall in their home, you’d assume this young couple was so passionate for each other that their young romance would last 'till death do them part. But something soon seems off with Margot. She’s empty inside.
Coming home from a business trip, she meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), a passionate painter who makes ends meet as a rickshaw driver. Margot and Daniel immediately hit it off, transcending into an unconventional friendship farther than she and Lou could ever reach. She starts to fall for Daniel, but fights -- hard -- to resist the temptation of getting physically and mentally involved with another man. As the days go by, the temptation gets harder and the emptiness grows. "Take This Waltz" is a remarkable, offbeat love story about how not all perfect romances have a fairy tale beginning or end.

For decades, video game fans have loved to stomp, shoot and otherwise cream the various bad guys that crop up in their way. Try to keep us from eating them there dots? Sorry, Blinky, but it's curtains for you.
But just how do video game bad guys feel about this neverending cycle?
That's the premise behind the new animated hit "Wreck-It Ralph" — and as the first trailer shows, this is one film that's ready to take you to the next level. Get More »
Michelle Williams is just totally amazeballs.
Seriously, after watching her performances in films like "My Week with Marilyn" (Oscar nomination), "Blue Valentine" (Oscar nomination) or "Brokeback Mountain" (Oscar... you get the drift), we'll pretty much follow her anywhere at this point. Which is just one reason we're so happy to see the trailer for her newest indie film.
For women, breaking into comedy is a tough enough nut to crack without the chauvinistic "women aren't funny" comments. Not only is it not true, but with a male-dominated writers' field in Hollywood (73 percent of the WGA's film writers are men) it's only too clear that if women aren't funny on-screen, it's probably because the only funny thing they had to do in the script was fall down and go boom boom.
The widely accepted paradigm in movies (not to mention TV) is having an out-of-shape or mildly attractive but funny husband and his hot, not-as-funny wife. And it's getting stale, baby. In order for a woman to go against that grain takes massive ovaries, the ability to generate her own material, and absolutely no fear of looking stupid. Get More »
She's written and performed on "Saturday Night Live," had a self-titled program on Comedy Central and f**ed Matt Damon (in song, we mean, on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"), so it's about time Sarah Silverman gets "serious" about a movie career.
Silverman follows up sporadic screen roles in "School of Rock," "Rent" and "School for Scoundrels" with "Peep World," a new dysfunctional family comedy co-starring Michael C. Hall, Rainn Wilson and Ben Schwartz. She plays one of the three siblings devastated by their younger brother's tell-all novel, which exposes many intimate family secrets, as the family gathers for their father's 70th birthday.

"That's impossible! I have to puke out a bunch: 'Ordinary People,' 'The Squid and the Whale,' 'Goodfellas,' 'King of Comedy,' 'Defending Your Life,' 'Crimes and Misdemeanors' and 'Rushmore.' That's a good first spew.
"I also enjoy any two-and-a-half star thriller from the '80s and early '90s. I could watch 'Sleeping with the Enemy' on a loop."
Sarah Silverman can be seen in the dysfunctional-family comedy "Peep World," which opens in theaters on March 25.
How would you react to all of your deep, dark secrets being mined for a fictional bestseller? Probably just like the poor Meyerowitz family in IFC's comedy "Peep World," but with a lot more screaming, and fewer memorable wisecracks.
They find themselves in that exact situation, and are stuck confronting the little brother who penned it at their father's 70th birthday party.
IFC has put out a new trailer for "Peep World," which we've embedded below. Starring a widely talented cast (including Michael C. Hall, Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, Judy Greer, Taraji P. Henson and Kate Mara) it received pretty good reviews on the festival circuit and is finally getting a wide release. Get More »
Ah, the dysfunctional family—arguably one of the most beloved movie topics of all time. There's hardly anything we enjoy more than the chance to sit back, relax and watch someone else's family duke-it-out on the silver screen.
But in between the requisite bickering and sibling rivalry, how does one of these dramedies make sure to stand out?
Perhaps our first look at "Peep World" can give us some clues. Get More »
