"Love and Other Drugs" is a testament to the talent and appeal of its stars, Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal.

‘Faster’ is cars, guns, muscles — and cliches

Here's all you need to know about the new Dwayne Johnson star vehicle, "Faster."

Potter ‘Part 1’ pauses action, delivers heart

Haven't they toyed with us long enough? Isn't it time to bring the Harry Potter saga to an end?

‘Due Date’ swings hard, strikes out

In theory, the New York Yankees should win the World Series every year. Their total payroll is more than double that of 21 of the 29 other teams in Major League Baseball, and over $40 million more than the team with the second highest payroll. Which means every year they field more talent than each of their competitors. It also means their fans expect them to be perfect.

At last, the big blue head arrives.

‘Hornets Nest’ a fitting end to trilogy

One of the most exciting movie events of the decade is entering its endgame this month. The last chapter of the Millenium trilogy, "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest," hits limited theatrical release this week and will hopefully spread out over the coming weeks.

‘Jackass 3D’ is the worst movie ever

Sitting through "Jackass 3D" was the worst 90 minutes I've spent in a movie theater. Hands down, no contest, ever. I can't imagine a more disgusting, stupid, pointless movie ever making it to mainstream theaters.

‘Red’ is ridiculous, campy fun with lots of action

It's fashionable these days to say that 40 is the new 30, 50 is the new 40, and so on. In "Red," however, 50 is still 50, 60 is still 60, and that's the whole point.

‘Let Me In’ a chilling adaptation

One of my greatest pet peeves is American remakes of great foreign films. I know there are people, probably plenty of you reading this, who simply don't enjoy reading subtitles. But I will never understand why it's better to watch an inferior remake just to avoid having to glance down to briefly read some dialogue.

'The Social Network' is worth friending

Because it doesn't already consume enough of our lives, Facebook will now take over movie theaters beginning this Friday. If the very idea of a Facebook movie makes you groan, believe me, I understand. That was my initial reaction, too.

Wall Street not a revealing investment

At first glance, Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" seems to be hitting the market at exactly the right moment. But the timing might not be perfect after all.

'Easy A' a romp worth talking about

I don't think I've ever been so glad to have grown up male. If surviving high school is really as difficult for girls as "Easy A" makes it seem, young women should receive medals along with their diplomas.

Subdued spy film divides audiences

A man in plain clothes walks alone through the dim, narrow cobblestone streets of a small Italian town. His name might be Jack or it might be Edward. He is handsome but otherwise unremarkable, able to blend into crowds easily.

‘The Last Exorcism’ short on scare tactics

In most ways, "The Last Exorcism" is not a typical horror movie. Whether that's a good thing will be up to you.

Fall will be hotter than summer

I can't remember when I've been so happy for a summer movie season to end. It may have been the hottest summer on record outside the theater, but it was ice cold inside. As in, usually the air conditioning was the best part of the movie.

‘Lucy’ way too out of this world

You're going to hear strange popping sounds Friday afternoon around the time "Lucy" has its first showing. They will be the sounds of scientists' heads exploding all around the world.

Politics and horror film mix

"The Purge: Anarchy" is a political polemic disguised as a horror film. I view that as a good thing, but horror fans may not.
