This Is 40 is Judd Apatow's hilarious love letter to the people he loves most: his wife, Leslie Mann, and two daughters, Maude and Iris Apatow.

In This Is 40, Judd Apatow's sort-of sequel to Knocked Up, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd reprise their roles as the neurotic Debbie and Pete. Albert Brooks joins them as Pete's inappropriate, money-sucking father; and Megan Fox wears a bikini. (All in all, great casting.) At the film's press day, we got the chance to talk to some of the cast members, and talked to us about...

If Elgin James had written for MTV's Skins, the show might've lasted more than 10 episodes. His debut feature Little Birds understands the American teenager the way Skins UK understands the English teenager. The film properly captures angst and anger, has superb acting and its cinematography looks...

Judd Apatow’s latest salvo in making sure he casts wife Leslie Mann in absolutely everything, This is 40 is the “sort of sequel” to Knocked Up, featuring as it does the return of Mann and Paul Rudd’s supporting characters from that film—a turbulently married couple with two children.  And, once again, we get the story of a wacky man-child and...

Every year, we're flooded with a pocket of animated movies aimed towards the younger demographic. Luckily, creative companies like Laika, produce films that everybody can enjoy.

Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann in 'This is 40'
It didn't take long for Judd Apatow to segue into Dramedy, did it? The director, who launched Steve Carell and Seth Rogen into stardom with The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, seems to want to add a little more pathos into the mix, and maybe that's why there are no laugh out loud moments in the trailer for his upcoming film...

From fairy tales on, the supernatural and scary elements of children's entertainment has long been celebrated and decried. It all depends on the kids, but for every scaredy cat, there's the child who wants to watch Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas on a loop. ParaNorman is the latest entry in the genre of macabre children's tales, and...

I Love You Phillip Morris: Our Two Lovers Meet
For those of you mulling over the purchase of a ticket to this outrageously stupid film, listen up: Typically we associate Jim Carrey with unwavering humor and Ewan McGregor with infectious charm. In the sheer disaster that is I Love You Phillip Morris, both actors give performances utterly barren of the aforementioned qualities. Co-written/directed by longtime creative...

This weekend we get Judd Apatow's new star-studded comedy Funny People with Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, Eric Bana, Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, and Jason Schwartzman.

New Funny People Trailer Shows Promise

I was a little worried about this film but after watching this trailer I think there is hope. Not because of the "I'm dying" plot line, but because they are making Eric Bana and not Adam Sandler the comic relief. I prefer serious Sandler, he's more funny. It seems like they're not trying to force humor onto us. They've given us a simple pitch, with some subtle...

I Love You Phillip Morris: Jim Carrey
OK. I've heard about this film. About the passionate sex scenes and the great acting, but this trailer sure as hell doesn't really show much promise. It looks a cheesy romantic comedy. Adding a homosexual "edge" does not make it any better. I will say I am interested in seeing Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor's chemistry though. But, with directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Bad Santa), maybe...
