    'This is the End' is rude, crude -- and funny ★★★ 1/2
    The "Hangover" movies, even the third one no one defends, barely qualify as comedies in the traditional sense. They're more like grimy action pictures with a joke or two tossed in to avoid the charge of false labeling. Their ugliness of spirit compounds a...

    Review: 'Grown Ups 2' refuses to leave the sandbox
    It is just a few minutes into "Grown Ups 2" when star Adam Sandler is peed on in the face by a deer. How one feels about that — is it funny, is it cheap, is it a weird curiosity? — will likely be an accurate litmus test for responses to the...

    Critics agree: 'Grown Ups 2' is summer's worst movie
    The critics have spoken, and “Grown Ups 2” is the winner -- as the worst movie of the summer so far. Although the Adam Sandler comedy is expected to do good business in its debut this weekend, the sequel has attracted a blizzard of...

    A new project for 'Runway' producer Heidi Klum
    Heidi Klum has bought the Sherman Oaks estate of Ed Weinberger, one of the creators of "The Cosby Show," and his wife, television actress Carlene Watkins, for $9.875 million. The red-brick Georgian-style mansion sits on 5 acres that take in canyon,...
  • 'Blended' continues a love-hate relationship with Adam Sandler

    There are movies you love, movies you hate, movies you love to love, movies you love to hate and some sliding scale in between of awfulness, indifference and awesome. And then there are the movies of Adam Sandler, which seem to exist on their very own...
  • Judd Apatow misses chance to go deeper with 'This Is 40' ★★ 1/2

    Judd Apatow misses chance to go deeper with 'This Is 40' ★★ 1/2
    More like "This Is Whiny," "This Is 40" has its share of clever, zingy material, proving that writer-director Judd Apatow has lost none of his ability to land a punch line with the right, unexpected turn of phrase. "My boobs are just ... gone," bemoans...

    Movie Projector: 'Madagascar 3' to top 'Rock' musical, Sandler comedy
    "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" will be at the top of the box office food chain for the second consecutive weekend, beating out two new star-studded arrivals. DreamWorks Animation's 3-D sequel is expected to gross at least $30 million this...
  • 'Funny People'

    When Judd Apatow put his producer-promoter's hat on to publicize Jake Kasdan's very funny (and underrated) parody of biopics, "Walk Hard," he said that it was "fun to make fun of movies that reek of the filmmakers' belief that they were going to win the...

    Review: 'Funny People'
    "Funny People" was supposed to be Judd Apatow's coming out party. The movie in which "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up" writer-director, who has long made his bread and butter on the back of immature guys and their raunchy talk, shows his grown-...
  • Box office: 'Funny People' neither hits nor misses

    "Funny People" generated the box office equivalent of a light chuckle, opening to a studio-estimated $23.4 million on its opening weekend. That's below what tracking had indicated and what some of the biggest summer comedies starring Adam Sandler ("You...
