If Dirty Harry were shorter, heavier, sassier and a woman, then he might have been Melissa McCarthy in The Heat, a very funny new film that irreverently puts a bullet in the head of stereotypical cop-buddy movie conventions.
Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy finish second in the Box Office this weekend, starring in “The Heat”.
While The Hangover Part III may seem like a retread of very familiar ground, this “final” film in the Hangover trilogy completely abandons the trademark formula that typically sets Phil, Stu and Alan up to figure out what the heck happened the night before. Instead they are still recovering from the debauchery that occurred in the first film from 2009. Nevertheless, this is still a very funny movie.
In recent years, there have been some really good Oscar hosts like Hugh Jackman, some acceptable hosts like John Stewart, some disappointing hosts like Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin, and some flat-out horrendous hosts like James Franco & Anne Hathaway. Despite the best efforts of some, none have come close to capturing the same wit, timing, and showmanship of reoccurring hosts like Bob Hope, Johnny Carson, or Billy Crystal. At the 85th Annual Academy Awards ceremony however, Seth MacFarlane of “Ted” and “Family Guy” emerged as the single most entertaining first-time Oscar host of the 21st century.
After achieving a $35 million opening weekend, the Seth Gordon-directed "Identity Thief" has staked its claim on the pockets and purses of the public. The new release falls into the sub-genres of buddy films and road comedies such as "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles," "Dumb and Dumber," and "Tommy Boy".
While “Knocked Up” established Seth Rogan and Katherine Heigl as major movie stars, it was Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd who stole the entire show. Rogan and Heigl’s characters are nowhere to be found in the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up.”
