Despicable Me 2's Box Office Conquest Over Grown Ups 2


Steve Carell Adam Sandler Guillermo Del Toro Chris Rock David Spade Kevin James

In this weekend's battle of the light-hearted sequels, Despicable Me 2 has come out on top of the weekend's movie charts in the United States and Canada beating Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups 2, despite the children's animation having been released on July 3rd in both countries. Despicable Me 2 raked in $44.8 million (£29.6m) from Friday to Sunday, leaving Grown Ups 2 slightly behind with takings of $42.5 million (£28.1m) in its first US weekend, according to Reuters. Though Grown Ups 2 is only marginally behind on its first days of release, it can't be an easy pill to swallow for actor Sandler who not only had his movie panned by critics before it was even released, but also had to relive the ordeal of being mauled by a cheetah whilst on safari in Africa on David Letterman's show.

Guillermo Del Toro's big-budget monsters vs. robots movie, Pacific Rim looked set to be a box office smash after it's exciting trailers and intriguing premise but had to contend with third place in a weekend dominated by the friendlier comedies. In an audience break-down provided by Forbes, "The film played 19% IMAX, 50% 3D, 61% male and 47% under-25 years old," showing a promising chunk of younger theatregoers.

Men Dominate Most Bankable Stars List, But Topped By Women.


Natalie Portman Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Daniel Radcliffe Taylor Lautner Bradley Cooper Eddie Murphy Kevin James Dwayne Johnson Amy Adams

Forbes has released their most bankable Hollywood stars list for 2012, and topping the list is Natalie Portman

Portman brings back $42.70 for every $1 she's paid which makes her a very lucrative investment for any film maker. Her first movie was Leon: The Professional way back in 1994, which was not only successful at the time but has gained something of a cult status. Her roles since have been diverse and interesting, including V for Vendetta, the Star Wars prequel trilogy and the multi-award winning Black Swan. However, as Forbes notes, it's that she's simply not being paid enough for her talents and appeal that push her to the top of the table. To put her numbers in perspective, the most overpaid actor in Hollywood is Eddie Murphy who brings back just $2.30 for every $1 he's paid. 

Following close behind in second place is Kristen Stewart largely for her starring role in the Twilight Saga, she makes film companies $40.60 for every dollar paid. In third is Shia LaBoeuf, perhaps a little surprising, but his roles in The Transformers movies - enormous summer blockbusters that have never failed to make millions upon millions of dollars- have pushed him into the top 5. He'll probably not be seen here again having said that he'll not be appearing in anymore movies of the franchise.

The Dilemma Review


Weak
A lack of focus leaves this film neither funny enough to be a comedy nor astute enough to be a drama. Although it's clearly trying to be both, there's nothing about the story or characters that grabs our attention.

Best buddies Ronny and Nick (Vaughn and James) are trying to get their business off the ground, creating muscle-car effects for electric vehicles. One day Ronny spots Nick's wife Geneva (Ryder) kissing another man (Tatum). He's afraid to tell Nick because they're bidding for their first big contract. And he can't tell his own girlfriend Beth (Connelly), because he's planning to propose. So he confronts Geneva, who tells Ronny that her marriage is complicated. So what should Ronny do next?

Grown Ups Review


Weak
Why is it that comedies about middle-aged men regressing to their childhood so rarely, if ever, work? Not much more than an in-joke between the actors, this film is amiable but never funny. And despite some hackneyed moralising, it has nothing to say.

Five school buddies return home 30 years later for their beloved coach's funeral. Lenny (Sandler) is now a high-powered Beverly Hills agent married to a hot fashionista (Hayek). Eric (James) is an average guy with a lively wife (Bello) and unruly kids. Kurt (Rock) is a frazzled househusband married to a high-powered shrew (Rudolph). Marcus (Spade) is still the same lothario. And Rob (Schneider) is an overly emotional goofball with a much-older wife (Van Patten). Altogether, they head to a lake house for a week of wacky antics and shallow soul-searching.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop Review


Weak
Some celebrities aren't meant to cross over into different mediums. While they may look good on a concert stage or in a series of small-screen comedy sketches, that doesn't mean they're headed for cinematic superstardom. Certain performers need to stay well within their audience-gauged abilities. Take Kevin James, for example. He's a wonderful stand-up comedian and a decent sitcom spouse. But put him in movies, and suddenly the limitations start showing up. This is definitely the case in Paul Blart: Mall Cop. While this PG romp is clearly aimed at a less sophisticated crowd, the comic's genial nature constantly tries to lift the material. It doesn't work.

Overweight and desperately lonely, mall security guard Paul Blart (James) just wants to get through Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. He's worried about protecting the customers. Having failed the police academy obstacle course a record eight times, the mall job is all he has. Yet his daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez) knows he needs someone to spend his life with outside of work. Paul specifically has eyes for kiosk salesgirl Amy (Jayma Mays) but he's just too shy to ask her out. But when a group of criminals led by Veck Sims (Keir O'Donnell) enters the facility and takes hostages, it's up to Blart to save the day... if he can.

I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry Review


Bad
We were barely getting over 300, and now this: a movie about two straight firemen who pretend to be gay to ensure that one's life insurance policy won't go to spit if he should die. This all sounds nice on paper, but the execution could be lightly described as flippin' horrendous. While twits are raging against John Travolta slipping into a fat suit to replace Divine in Hairspray, they're missing out on Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and a veritable who's-who of cameo stars sinking in an overblown, patently-ridiculous monolith of fag jokes and gay stereotypes. In I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Director Dennis Dugan has moved quickly from sentimental spoon-feeding into the realm of absolute absurdity.

So, one day Chuck Levine (Sandler) and Larry Valentine (James) decide to get hitched. The reason is simple: Larry doesn't want to fill-out an insurance form, so he gets Chuck to pose as his "life partner," thus allowing any pension money to go directly to Larry's two kids, a tomboy daughter and a showtune-singing son. Larry still can't get over his saintly wife's death and Chuck has more than likely contracted more STDs than the leather upholstery in Tommy Lee's Jaguar; they're a match made in heaven.

Continue reading: I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry Review

Barnyard: The Original Party Animals Review


Weak
The animals populating Steve Oedekerk's Barnyard: The Original Party Animals remind me of the plastic Little People figurines with which my two-year-old plays. The cows wear snap-on noses and hold objects in synthetically smooth velvet hands that look more like designer gloves than hooves. The bulbous pigs each sport perfectly positioned mud blotches, as if the spots were painted on by toy factory workers.The visuals fit the overall mood, because Oedekerk has penned a Lion King clone that's tailored to the Fisher-Price crowd. Instead of an MPAA rating, the Barnyard poster should carry a warning: "For ages 5 and below."In this environment - as in many animated scenarios - the animals behave like people whenever humans are out of sight. They talk, dance, sing, belch, blow bumblebees from their nostrils, and cower in fear of wild coyotes (because hyenas were already used in the aforementioned King).Our hero, Otis (Kevin James), is an immature teenage cow sowing his wild oats... or whatever it is cows sow. Think of him as Simba. Otis is nagged by dad Ben (Sam Elliott) - or Mufasa - to take more responsibility. But the selfish cow would rather spend his downtime entertaining his adolescent buds during late-night concerts in the barn.Yes, Barynard forces itself to follow a musical format. It mimics Disney's animation formula to the letter, which means every 10 minutes of exposition must be interrupted by a serenade - in this case, it's a series of barnstorming ditties that includes a slow-churning country cover of Tom Petty's plucky pop castoff, "I Won't Back Down."The predictable Barnyard brings some balance to this summer's animated output. We began with Cars and Monster House, enjoyable features that married relevant messages to their impressive art. Since then, we've chipped away at their progress with noisy, colorful but hollow adventures like this and The Ant Bully. Kids are entertained, but parents are cheated.During my Barnyard screening, a boy who had giggled at every kick, drop, and tumble turned to his mom and asked with sincerity, "Why are you not laughing?" She didn't respond. The kid is Oedekerk's ideal audience member - old enough to chuckle and too young to know better.Out, damn spot!

Monster House Review


Excellent

Every perfect and picturesque neighborhood - at least in the movies - has one: that creepy old house that fuels the nightmares and serves as the centerpiece of the double-dog dares for the local kids.

DJ (Mitchel Musso) has made the house his mission. He's set his bedroom up as home base to watch old Mr. Nebbercracker across the street, an irate curmudgeon (voiced by Steve Buscemi) who steals any balls or bikes that find their way into his yard, chases after kids to keep off his lawn, and, presumably, thinks the music kids listen to today is nothing but noise. Within an hour of DJ's parents leaving for the weekend, Nebbercracker is dead (from a heart attack during an apoplectic moment at finding DJ on his lawn) and DJ is finding out that the old coot might not have been the most dangerous part of the creepy old house, because the house itself is starting to... eat people.

Hitch Review


Weak
Hitch asks one question: Just how far can a film coast on Will Smith's charm and some hilariously bad dance moves? The answer is, pretty far, but not nearly far enough.

Smith plays the titular hero, a guy who's so smooth he turned it into a career as a "date doctor," helping a succession of schlubby but good-hearted guys make it into the arms of gorgeous women who otherwise wouldn't have looked twice at them. But although he's like a consultant for romance, Hitch doesn't use his powers to find true love for himself, leaving marriage and lasting relationships for his clients. This leaves him with plenty of energy to devote to his newest project: Albert (Kevin James, very funny), a nervous, fumble-thumbed accountant desperately in love with one of his clients, the ridiculously wealthy and beautiful heiress Allegra (Amber Valletta, who comes closer to approximating an actual actress in each film she's in) and needs help getting her to notice him. A few quick lessons from Hitch, which include a nicely-played Cyrano scene (and a dancing tutorial that contains most of the film's few true laughs), and Albert begins to blossom into a confident, impressive romantic who looks sure to make Allegra fall for him. It's light stuff, to be sure, but often played with a disarmingly sweet touch by both James and Valletta and enjoyable enough. But then the film feels the need to add in a whole other storyline, and that's where the problems start.

Continue reading: Hitch Review

Hitch Review


Good

All the wicked charm and confident charisma that makeWill Smith a movie star are present in spades in "Hitch," a brightand sharp-witted -- if predictable -- romantic comedy about a matchmakerwho coaches lovestruck schmendricks in the wooing of otherwise unattainablegirls of their dreams.

Letting go his action-hero persona, Smith's winning waywith clever come-ons and witty rejoinders becomes the pulse of this smarter-than-averagecrowd-pleaser that revolves around two archetypal love stories told withamusingly atypical details.

One of the romances is orchestrated by Alex "Hitch"Hitchens (Smith) on behalf of a client -- a hapless, nebbish nice-guy accountant("The King of Queens'" Kevin James) who has fallen from afarfor an out-of-his-league heiress (ex-model Amber Valletta), whose assetshe helps oversee.
