Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip - Redfoo Featurette


Redfoo talks about some of the ups and downs of working with three mischievous characters, Simon, Alvin and Theodore. Constant practical jokes and partying can become tiresome even for the likes of Redfoo!

Alvin, Theodore & Simon have spent their lives living with Dave, their adoptive father and they've never been happier. None more so than Dave, who's happily in a relationship - when the three Chipmunks think Dave's about to propose to his partner, they have feelings of doubt as to if they want new step brother who loves nothing more than antagonising the Chipmunks and decide there's nothing left to do but journey to the other side of the country and stop Dave from proposing to his Doctor girlfriend Samantha.

Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip is released in the UK 12 February 2016.

Amanda Seyfried Justin Long Desmond Harrington Dominic Cooper Drew Barrymore

Amanda Seyfried is allegedly dating actor Justin Long. Sources, speaking to US Weekly, say the couple were seen together at the Lovelace premiere, the recently released film in which Seyfried stars. The source, who was allegedly at the premiere, said "they weren't making out or anything like that, but they were just inseparable during the event. He hung out when she talked with others" and that "Justin stayed close to Amanda all night."

The arrivals for the premiere 'A Case of You' at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York seemed to be expecting some new arrivals as three of the women working on the movie are heavily pregnant. One of the stars, Evan Rachel Wood ('Thirteen'), showed off her bump in a floral Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress while another actress, Busy Philipps ('Cougar Town'), was looking quite far on in a black jumpsuit. The director herself, Kat Coiro ('L!fe Happens'), was snapped gleefully clutching her own bump with her husband, Rhys Coiro, in tow.

Evan Rachel Wood Has Pregnant Tummy Cradled By A Lion (Snoop Lion)


Evan Rachel Wood Snoop Dogg Kat Coiro Jamie Bell Justin Long

Evan Rachel Wood's unborn child sure has a story to tell his or her college buddies in years to come. The two-time Golden Globe nominee is expecting her first child with husband Jamie Bell, and showed off her baby bump at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday (April 22, 2013).

The 25-year-old starlet tweeted, "Me and @KatCoiro just had our babies blessed by @snoopdogg today. No big deal" before posting a snap of herself and director Kat Coiro (also pregnant) with Snoop Dogg himself. The hip-hop superstar was at the film festival to promote his new album Reincarnated. Rachel Wood and Coiro glowed as they posed with the hip-hop superstar in Tribeca's press room. Snoop also had time to pose with actor Justin Long, who appeared equally as delighted to be in the presence of the man himself.

Of course, Evan Rachel Wood was attending the festival to promote her new movie A Case of You, which premiered Sunday night. It follows the story of a young writer who lures a girl online based on his embellished profile. The movie also stars Peter Dinklage, Sienna Miller, Sam Rockwell, Vince Vaughn, Brendan Fraser and Busy Philipps.

10 Years Trailer


'10 Years' is the story of group of former high school friends that reunite ten years after their graduation. The reunion brings together best friends Jake, Cully, Reeves, AJ, and Marty; Jake is now in a happy relationship with his girlfriend Jess who he wishes to marry, former jock Cully is now married to his cheerleader girlfriend from school, Sam, Reeves is now a famous musician with fans everywhere while pranksters AJ and Marty haven't really changed in the slightest and are still trying to gain the attention of the beautiful and popular Anna. Things take a heavy turn when Jake's high school sweetheart Mary shows up at the reunion bash and he can't seem to switch off his feelings for the sake of his girlfriend who is clearly troubled by the situation. On the other hand, a new romance looks set to ignite when Reeves runs into his old crush Elise and the group begin to realise that they have far from grown up in the last decade; it's as if their high school lives had been put on standby until they were all together again and could finally pick up where they left off.

Going The Distance Review


Very Good
It might not be particularly original, but this rom-com at least takes a fresh approach to the formula. It also features two superbly winning actors in the lead roles, and the chemistry between them is utterly charming.

Garrett (Long) is struggling to get over a break-up when he meets Erin (Barrymore), a lively woman who connects with him both romantically and as a best friend. But Erin is only in New York for a summer internship, and when she returns to San Francisco their romance is strained by the 3,000 miles between them. Garrett's friends (Day and Sudeikis) aren't much help, while Erin's sister and brother-in-law (Applegate and Gaffigan) don't really get it. And as the months pass, Erin and Garrett have some difficult decisions to make.

Kate and Humphrey are two wolves, they're both members of the same pack but from opposite ends of the scale.

Humphrey, on the other hand, spends his days making jokes and playing about with his other omega friends.

Old Dogs Review


Terrible
To call this comedy a disaster is an understatement. It's aggressively awful, and manages to push its worst gags so numbingly off the scale that we're left slack-jawed in disbelief. Amazingly, the cast members just about get out alive.

Charlie and Dan (Travolta and Williams) are old pals and partners as sports publicists. Charlie is a relentless bachelor, teasing Dan about his impulsive, brief Vegas marriage to Vicki (Preston) eight years earlier. What neither of them knows is that Vicki gave birth to Dan's twins (Ella Bleu Travolta and Rayburn), and now she needs him to watch them for two weeks. Nutty antics ensue as these cute kids upset these men's life, dragging them off for a weekend camping trip and of course slowly winning them over in the process.

Continue reading: Old Dogs Review

Battle For Terra Review


Very Good
Made two years before the similarly themed Avatar, this original, vividly designed sci-fi animation makes an astute commentary on current issues. And this depth of feeling more than makes up for the relatively slack pace and thin characters.

When a giant ship of humans arrives at an isolated planet, they don't really understand that the residents are living in peace with nature and others. So they launch an all-out attack on the world they have named Terra. But a feisty local named Mala (Wood) stands up to them, teaming up with crash-landed earthling Stanton (Wilson) and his robot sidekick (Cross). And earth's General Hemmer (Cox) is more than happy to indulge in annihilation top get his hands on this planet.

Drag Me To Hell Review


Excellent
With the Spider-Man films sitting out there like tarted-up, tawdry trophy wives, it's easy to forget how good a filmmaker Sam Raimi really is. If it weren't for the commercial strictures of the comic book movie, mandates which tend to stifle outright creativity, he might still be churning out the quality spine-tinglers. Instead, he's been lost in a sea of sparkle and spectacle, forgetting us fright fans who propped him up and suggested he might sell to a strict Tinseltown demo. Now, he's back crafting the kind of spook shows that made us all fall in love with him in the first place -- and Drag Me to Hell is quite an act of crazed contrition.

Loan Officer Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) wants the available assistant manager position in her bank. She hopes it will impress the parents of her psychology professor boyfriend Clay Dalton (Justin Long). But when a need for cutthroat tactics causes her to deny a geriatric gypsy woman (Lorna Raver) a third extension on her mortgage, there is literally hell to pay. Seems the old lady places a curse on Christine, guaranteeing that, in three days, a demon will arrive to drag her down to Satan's dominion. Hoping to avoid such a horrible fate, she seeks the aid of psychic Rham Jas (Dileep Rao). He suggests a medium (Adriana Barraza) who had a run in with the same spirit several years before. Unfortunately, it seems Christine's soul is condemned, and nothing can save her.

Battle For Terra Review


Weak
In this day and age, you simply cannot produce unsophisticated animation like the kind on display in the campy Battle for Terra and hope to compete.

Pixar's industry pioneers push the envelope with each new cartoon, while their closest rivals at DreamWorks Animation have narrowed the quality gap. Even Xbox and Playstation video games boast superior visual sequences to those found in Terra, which chokes on its competition's digitally animated dust.

He's Just Not That Into You Review


Bad
Women are pathetic -- at least, that's the message being preached by a recent rash of horribly misguided motion pictures. In Sex and the City, they're depicted as materialistic sluts who use their fading feminine wiles to weasel all manner of money-based goodies out of their gullible meat puppets. In Mamma Mia!, we experience fading beauty bedeviled by off-key singing and gloppy green-screen romanticism. But both of those films are feminist manifestos when compared to the gender equity awfulness of He's Just Not That Into You. Any film "loosely" based on a baffling self-help tome is already asking for trouble, but once gyno-nation gets a whiff of this effort's "ladies are losers" lament, the fashionable gloves are bound to come off.

Our story centers around Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin), a copywriter for a spices catalog. Unlucky in love, she seeks advice from her equally ineffectual coworkers Janine (Jennifer Connelly) and Beth (Jennifer Aniston). The former is in a sexless marriage with her music industry rep hubby Ben (Bradley Cooper) who happens to be bedding a wannabe singer named Anna (Scarlett Johansson). The latter can't get her live-in partner of seven years, Neil (Ben Affleck), to commit to some form of nuptials. While Janine and Beth pursue their own guidance from gal pal ad editor Mary (Drew Barrymore), Gigi develops a platonic bond with wise guy bar manager Alex (Justin Long). He's a fount of information on how guys treat girls, and with his help, our heroine hopes to find Mr. Right... or at the very least, avoid Mr. Right Now.

Strange Wilderness Review


Weak
Take the second-tier crew from both Adam Sandler's posse (Allen Covert, Peter Dante) and Judd Apatow's regulars (Jonah Hill, Justin Long) and throw them together in a comedic spin on a Wild Kingdom type set and what do you get? A few chuckles rolled in with a lot of gross-out humor.

Steve Zahn headlines the directorial debut of Joe Dirt screenwriter Fred Wolf, playing Peter Gaulke, the stoner son of a famous Crocodile Hunter-like dad whose show Strange Wilderness was once a mega-hit. After dad died and Peter took over, things went downhill, with Peter turning in episodes punctuated by absurd narration and questionable nature... unless you count girls flashing their breasts in the shrubs behind the office building "nature." Peter defends the segment, of course, claiming them to be "natives."

Live Free Or Die Hard Review


Extraordinary
He's back. The fly in the ointment. The monkey in the wrench. The pain in the... well, since Len Wiseman's Live Free or Die Hard is the franchise's first installment saddled with an audience-friendly PG-13 rating, we'll have to dance around that last quote. But that's about the only thing toned down as Bruce Willis resurrects his iconic blue-collar cop character John McClane for a timely, terrifying, and terrifically entertaining popcorn flick.

Chances are I enjoyed this new Die Hard, the fourth in the series, more than you will. Full disclosure time: The original Die Hard is my favorite film. Not my favorite Bruce Willis film. Not my favorite action film. My favorite film, period. And Willis' invulnerable but impossibly human John McClane is, to me, the quintessential movie hero -- a street-smart civil servant with a knack for disrupting the best-laid plans of vicious malcontents.

The Break-Up (2006) Review


Weak
In most romantic comedies, some find themselves pining for the two leads to finally put their differences aside and reunite, slow dancing while an overused R&B tune plays in the background and the comic relief best friend tells a last joke. It's a genre that's been done to death, of course, but perfectly enjoyable when all the elements are in alignment. When the elements aren't there, however, the result is fairly ugly. The Break-Up -- a solid argument against real-life couples being allowed to play opposite each other in purportedly romantic films -- spends about five minutes setting up Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston as a couple and then proceeds to fill the rest of its running time with all the reasons why they really should break up; and well before it's over you'll be wishing they'd just call it quits.

Accomplishing the quite difficult task of neutering the normally volcanic presence that is Vaughn and further dampening Aniston's already meek comedic abilities, The Break-Up takes some quite considerable assets and squanders them completely. Vaughn and Aniston play Gary and Brooke, a couple who meet-cute at a Cubs game, are shacked up together in a nice downtown condo before the end of the credits, and are relentlessly bickering and splitting up just a few minutes later. Vaughn plays Gary as a more muted and oafish version of his standard motormouth self -- not a pleasant creation -- which leads one to believe that the film will eventually allow him to use his charm to win back the uptight and angry but still in-love Brooke. The critic's oath precludes this writer from giving away the admittedly surprising (though not necessarily in a good way) ending, but what can be said is that little in this film goes as expected.

Continue reading: The Break-Up (2006) Review

Happy Campers Review


Good
It may be a bit of an acquired taste, but Happy Campers (from Heathers writer Daniel Waters), but the film definitely deserved a better fate than being dumped on home video. Nonetheless it's worth a spin if you happen to come across it: It's the usual hijinks at Camp Bleeding Dove, with horny counselors running amok when camp leader (Peter Stormare) is incapacitated and a hurricane strikes the grounds. Dominique Swain steals the show as a Jan Brady-like innocent who wants to entertain her young charges and keep them pristine, but also pines for Wichita (Brad Renfro) all the same. The film gets a little muddy as the movie gets weirder, suffering from the same problems that made Wet Hot American Summer a curious oddity instead of a cult classic. Characters make abrupt personality shifts, and the in-joke just goes a bit too far. Funny? Yes. Another Heathers? Not quite.

Accepted Review


Weak
On paper, there's little doubt that the idea of combining Animal House and Camp Nowhere sounded like a good idea. Both films are entertaining, though the former obviously much more than the latter. Not too surprisingly, Accepted takes the scant mundane parts of Animal House and pastes them on the Camp Nowhere plot, and then decides to throw in a little Van Wilder for old time's sake. If you saw any of these films, expect an uneasy feeling of recycling.

Bartleby (Justin Long) is a clever high school student, but not specifically good at working. He can trick people and has an unnatural ability with words, but he can't get into a college to save his life. Several of his fellow friends and classmates are finding the same problem. After a failed plan to trick his parents, Bartleby decides that the only way to quell his parents' worries is to get an acceptance letter from a fake college. So, on a whim, he and a pack of ravenously creative friends set up a website, buy a space, remodel it, and make it look about as college-like as possible. It works for Bartleby's parents, but soon, hundreds of students are at the gates of the school, ready to learn.

Waiting Review


Weak
Those who have worked in food service know the challenges and difficulties the trade involves. They also know, as patrons, how to conduct themselves at a restaurant. More likely than not, they have observed a few incidences in which an employee at a restaurant -- quite possibly themselves -- has sought revenge on an especially difficult customer by tampering with the food in nasty, nauseating, stomach-churning ways, and they don't want something similar to happen to them.

I've never worked in food service myself. After watching Waiting, I thank my lucky stars for that. It does not appear to be an overly gratifying profession. Strenuous hours. Difficult bosses. Whining customers. Demanding environment. I have, however, been a difficult customer in the past. Waiting has woken me up to the reality of my nature, and the possible consequences I could receive. It goes without saying that my days as an obstinate customer are over.

Jeepers Creepers Review


Excellent
What's with Hollywood and road trips? Lately it seems like everything evolves from adventures while traveling across highways and small towns. To the credit of the filmmakers who think of these common ideas, most of the time, at least for the time being, these ideas work well.

This year alone, we have seen plenty of eventful stuff occur on the road. From the comedy Jay and Silent Bob to the thriller Joy Ride, it's been anything but your ordinary drive across the nation. This time out, fear takes the road trip in the surprisingly effective monster movie Jeepers Creepers.

Herbie: Fully Loaded Review


Good
Every time Lindsay Lohan and Disney join forces to updatea kiddie movie from the studio's slap-dash period of the 1960s and '70s,they've come away with a winner.

1998's remake of "The Parent Trap" showed a savvy sense of humorwhere the original was merely cutesy-poo. 2003's hilarious "FreakyFriday" expanded on its predecessor's body-swapconcept to hit the nail on the head of mother-daughter relationships. Nowcomes "Herbie: Fully Loaded," a witty and creative follow-upto the dumb but endearing "Love Bug" movies about a race-crazyVolkswagen Beetle that comes to life.

Lohan plays fresh college grad Maggie, a speed demon groundedfrom racing by her struggling NASCAR-driver father (Michael Keaton) aftera bad crash in an illegal street race. For her graduation present, Daddytakes her to a junkyard to pick out a fixer-upper car, and she reluctantlychooses a rusty 1963 Volkswagen Beetle with a forgotten history and waymore personality than Maggie bargained for. The moment Maggie turns thekey in Herbie's ignition, the little Bug takes off like an excited puppy-- with his passenger screaming her head off -- and the pair end up ata backwoods body shop where Herbie gets a make-over and Maggie gets a loveinterest (Justin Long).

While looking for parts at a car show, Herbie and Maggiefall into an impromptu street race, which leads to a nitrous-fueled desertshowdown for pink slips, then a demolition derby ("10 cars enter,one car leaves!" chants the crowd in a "Mad Max" tribute)and -- after some serious souping-up with a roll cage, fat tires, a spoiler,and passing mention of a rules loophole -- a shot at NASCAR glory.

Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy Review


Weak

There is a sub-genre of comedy that Saturday Night Live alumni seem to specialize in which I've decided to dub the "wouldn't it be funny if" movie. The defining characteristics are as follows:

1) Begin with flimsy, 25-words-or-less premise. (Wouldn't it be funny if Will Ferrell wore a bad wig and a bushy mustache to play a phony-baloney male chauvinist news anchor in the 1970s?)

2) Expand on this premise and explore its comic possibilities only to the extent of creating an endless supply of sophomoric sex jokes. (Wouldn't it be funny if Christina Applegate played the country's first female news anchor, who threatens Ferrell's insecure manhood?)

Jeepers Creepers Review


Terrible

One of the hallmarks of typical horror movies is that the characters are invariably stupid. No matter how much you holler at the screen, they still open that closet door, they still run the wrong way down that dark hallway and they never get away when given a perfectly good opportunity to do so. Most of the time they're so stupid you find yourself actually hoping they'll get killed just to put them out of your misery.

"Jeepers Creepers" is just such a horror movie -- made all the worse by the fact that writer-director Victor Salva ("Powder") actually tries to justify the idiotic actions of his primary pinheads.

When 20-ish brother and sister (Justin Long and Gina Philips) see a dark figure dumping bloody bodies down a remote roadside culvert while on their way home from college, they spend an entire scene convincing themselves that the right thing to do would be to go back and crawl in the culvert to see if anyone is alive in there. One suggests they just call the police. The other replies, "There's no pay phone for miles!" then adds, "What if it was you?"

Crossroads Review


OK

Freshly graduated from jail bait status, Britney Spears wastes no time getting down to her skivvies for her acting debut in the coming-of-age road movie "Crossroads."

After a prologue in which three little girls bury a box of mementos and pledge to dig it up the night of their high school graduation, the film cuts to eight years later when one of those girls has grown up into Lucy (Spears), who is introduced bouncing around her room, lip-syncing to Madonna songs in her two-sizes-too-small underwear.

Later she appears in an even teeny-weenier pink bra and panties -- then in a towel, then in a wet dress, a bikini and several other low-cut and high-cut outfits. Perhaps this is a concession to the all the reluctant teenage boyfriends that will get dragged to this picture by their Britney-loving girlfriends.

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story Review


Terrible

Can somebody please stop Ben Stiller?

Since becoming a box-office draw with "There's Something About Mary," the guy has been a horrendous ham, devouring scenery with an eye-bugging, eyebrow-stitching schtick so stale and predictable that his last dozen movies have all included the same gag: slow-motion scenes of Stiller madly mugging while dancing, or running, or playing the titular game of schoolyard pain and humiliation in "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story."

The only variation in his on-screen persona is that sometimes he's an irritatingly neurotic, hapless chump ("Along Came Polly," "Envy," "Meet the Parents") and other times he's an irritatingly arrogant, mock-sexy-pouting, self-obsessed moron ("Starsky & Hutch," "Zoolander").
