Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

Bewitched

Warning: vicious personal-sounding attacks to follow. I want revenge on those who stole 100 minutes of my life. The motion picture version of Bewitched is a travesty of monumental proportions that belongs in the "What the hell were they thinkin...

Whatever Will Ferrell may or may not be, one can never accuse him of lacking balls. The decision to release Casa de Mi Padre, Ferrell's latest starring vehicle, entirely in Spanish with subtitles, will be an acid test as to whether the actor's popu...

Despicable Me 4
