Depp indulges inner clown in charmless 'Mortdecai'

Any film credited with its own "mustache wrangler" really should have been much more fun than Johnny Depp's latest misfiring action-comedy.


'The Boy Next Door': Jennifer Lopez brings the unintentional humor

If you've seen the deliciously bad trailer for "The Boy Next Door," you already know some of the film's best – which is to say its worst – lines. "I love your mom's cookies" may go down in history as the most hilariously inappropriate double-entendre ever spoken by one high school student to another after the first one has slept with his schoolmate's mother.


No piece of ‘Cake,’ despite Aniston

A wintry pall enshrouds even the sunniest Los Angeles locales in “Cake,” a drab, dramatically inert redemption story enlivened by a sharp performance by Jennifer Aniston.


'Birdman,' 'Budapest' top Oscar nominations with 9 nods each

January is when studios generally release their low-expectation titles to wither and die against award-nominated fare, so it’s a considerable gamble to watch a film starring a CGI-talking animal released in the first weeks of the year. But this live-action “Paddington” adaptation pays off.


'Taken 3': Liam Neeson's trilogy races to a choppy finish

One has certain expectations of a "Taken" movie – really, of almost any Liam Neeson action film, but especially this popular franchise, which, as advertised on the posters for "Taken 3," "ends here."


'Boyhood' tops Globes; 'Grand Budapest' upsets 'Birdman' (With list of the winners)

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The Golden Globes inched closer to legitimacy in its 72nd show, giving awards not just to A-List celebrities, but to the edgier productions that unequivocally deserved recognition, including "Boyhood," ''The Grand Budapest Hotel," and "Birdman."
