Unfortunately, that makes Funny People the lowest-grossing film to reach No. 1 this Read More

In a somewhat shocking turn of events, G-Force—heretofore known to adults-with-children as “that movie we were dragged to with the talking guinea pigs”—topped the charts this weekend with an estimated $32.1 million in ticket sales, which was enough to knock boy wizard Harry Potter into second place. With Up Read More
Sometimes it’s hard to hate Katherine Heigl.
