  • 'Being Flynn'

    'Being Flynn'
    A writer (Paul Dano) working in a homeless shelter has a very surprising reunion with his father (Robert De Niro), whose con-artist tendencies make him not the most reliable shoulder to lean on, in this comedy-drama from director and screenwriter Paul...
  • Ted

    Ted
    Sometimes I see a movie and know that I’ll be saying something every other critic in the country is going to say. With this film it’s the phrase “If you love Family Guy, you’ll love this.” I love Family Guy, and liked this a...
  • Upcoming Movies in 2012

    Upcoming Movies in 2012
    When I was asked to come up with movies I was looking forward to in 2012, I was first at a loss. As a critic, I find it a lot of fun to do lists of the best/worst of the previous years; but we try not to watch too many trailers. They give away key plot...

    'Being Flynn' review: A chip off the old, miserable block
    **1/2 (out of four) I’m not faulting Paul Dano for being one of the less (to put it nicely) screen-friendly presences in Hollywood. I am faulting “Being Flynn” for shoving Denise (Olivia Thirlby, excellent), a cute and extremely...
  • Being Flynn

    Being Flynn
    I didn’t have high hopes for this movie. Writer/producer/director Paul Weitz impressed me with About a Boy, but the last time he worked with Robert De Niro it was for Little Fockers. I am glad I was pleasantly surprised by this story, based on...

  • Cowboys & Aliens

    Cowboys & Aliens
    I had the same feeling watching the first 15 minutes of this movie as I did with Inglourious Basterds. I wished Quentin Tarantino had just made a straight war picture. In this, I was thinking director Jon Favreau should’ve just done a straight...
  • Video/Q&A: 'For a Good Time, Call' star Ari Graynor and star/co-writer Lauren Anne Miller

    Video/Q&A: 'For a Good Time, Call' star Ari Graynor and star/co-writer Lauren Anne Miller
    You may lament missing “For A Good Time, Call” star Ari Graynor when she spent a few days in Chicago earlier this month. Until you learn that the 29-year-old Boston native, best known for playing drunken mess Caroline in “Nick and Norah&...
  • Q&A: 'Ruby Sparks' star/writer Zoe Kazan

    Q&A: 'Ruby Sparks' star/writer Zoe Kazan
    Some have asked Zoe Kazan why “Ruby Sparks,” a comedy/drama about a male author who considers if and how to change a character he writes and then comes to life as his real girlfriend, doesn’t feature a female writer controlling a man....
  • Q&A: 'Ruby Sparks' star Paul Dano

    Q&A: 'Ruby Sparks' star Paul Dano
    Yes, Paul Dano’s real-life girlfriend Zoe Kazan deliberately wrote certain things for him in “Ruby Sparks,” in which the real-life couple plays a couple. The movie is not about them, though. “When I read scenes, it was like,...

    'Ruby Sparks' review: She's alive! And easy to adore
    *** (out of four) Plenty of fictional creations have sprung from imagination to reality in the minds of movie characters. Look at the computer-generated woman in “Weird Science.” Or, last month, the living teddy bear in “Ted.”...
