'Arrested Development' returns! - New episodes coming to Netflix 

I think I just blue myself. Arrested Development has been off the air for almost six years, but its return is now official. Fox will develop and stream new episodes of the series exclusively for Netflix, beginning in 2013. Series creator Mitchell Hurwitz and all of the principle cast members will return including Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Portia de Rossi, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, and narrator Ron Howard. It looks like the Save Our Bluths campaign finally worked.

Horrible Bosses review - The Hangover meets middle management

Have you ever wanted to kill your boss? We've all thought, abstractly, about how great it would be if we were Mister Manager for a day or, at least, what it might be like if our supervisor wasn't such a bag of douche. How great would that be? Unfortunately, for most of us, it ain't gonna happen. The world of middle management is full of imbeciles, psychopaths, and jackasses (and a few really great people). Some bosses are completely lazy and do nothing at all, while others rule the office with their own unique brand of tyranny. The management in Horrible Bosses is as bad as it gets. Unfortunately for Nick Hendricks, Dale Arbus, and Kurt Buckman, it's a lot harder to kill your boss than you'd think.

"Couples Retreat" is all Vaughn, no vacation (Review)

Score:

I am posting this review late. If you already wasted your money on Couples Retreat, I'm sorry. If you loved it, you're either obsessed with Vince Vaughn, or may be content watching anything.

Before the rest of you spend $8.50 on a ticket to see Couples Retreat, please do me a favor: watch the trailer. The entire plot and almost every joke is in that two minute video. If you start rolling on the floor laughing, watch it again. If you're still dying for more, by all means, go see the movie. Just don't say I didn't warn you: it's boring.

Up in the Air, from the guy who Thank[ed] You For Smoking (Trailer)

Two trailers in one day. When I posted the trailer for A Single Man (watch it), I said trailers were horrible these days. Well, here’s another exception. Once again, I’m very interested, and the trailer didn’t ruin the movie. Up in the Air is written and directed by Jason Reitman, the man behind Juno and Thank You For Smoking. It seems to have a great cast too. I caught a glimpse of Zach Galifianakis there, as well as Jason Bateman. Check it out. Here’s a fantastic review of the script from ScriptShadow, if don’t feel the trailer adequately ruined the plot for you.

Extract is sweet but unfulfilling (Review)

Mike Judge's Extract (R, 91 min.) is hard to dislike. It's full of entertaining and funny characters. Unfortunately, none have any depth. Like the food extract assembly line in the movie, each character has an assigned role, rigidly carries it out, and hands the plot off to whoever's next. Extract provides a funny and sweet taste of its characters, but ultimately left me unfulfilled and craving a comedy with more substance.
