Dinner for Schmucks

Is everyone as excited as I about the movie 'Dinner for Schmucks' now playing at a theater near you? Steve Carell is one of my favorite actors. I loved him in 'Bruce Almighty'. And whenever I think of Paul Rudd, I think of 'Clueless' (a modern twist on William Shakespeare's 'Taming of the Shrew')

What to learn more about this movie or what these actors have done check them out here.


Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Justin Long

Inhabiting the role like a second skin, Justin Long has played the nerdy teen to perfection in a growing list of films (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) and TV shows ("Ed").

Born June 2, 1978, in Fairfield, Conn., to a philosophy professor and a Broadway actress, Long developed an interest in acting early but resisted turning to it full time until he graduated from college -- which he did in 2000 from Vassar. Making his professional debut with the comedy troupe Laughing Stock while still in school, Long soon found himself cast as Warren Cheswick on the TV series "Ed" -- a role he would play for four years.

In 2001, Long nabbed his first leading role in a feature film in the hit horror outing Jeepers Creepers, and in 2005, he played Lindsay Lohan's nice-guy mechanic boyfriend in Herbie: Fully Loaded. Other recent films include The Break-Up and Dreamland

Weekend box office: 'Despicable Me' triumphs over 'Twilight'

The animated, moon-heist adventure "Despicable Me" outdoes the vamps and werewolves of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" to become the weekend's No. 1 movie. Meanwhile, "Predators" gets a relatively decent start, "The Last Airbender" moves beyond the $100 million mark and some excellent indies have something to celebrate, too. Keep reading for more details on the weekend box office.

"Despicable"? Try profitable. (Universal)

"Despicable Me" raked in $60.1 million, opening way ahead of studio projectons. Though, really, this shouldn't be that much of a surprise. The movie has been promoted extensively, starting way back in February with a high-profile Super Bowl commercial. It appeals to families. And the reviews and audience buzz were strong. The Steve Carell-voiced film played a key role in the overall box office performance, which was up roughly 43 percent compared to the same weekend last year, according to Box Office Mojo. (more)

SPOILER ALERT!!! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

This is the first of the two last movies for the entire series, corresponding to the first half of book 7. In this one, Harry, Ron, and Hermione go on the trek that Dumbledore sent them on to find and destroy all of the lost Horcruxes, but it won't be easy.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are fugitives from the law when the Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry of Magic and there is a 10,000 galleon price for anyone who turns in Harry to the Death Eaters so Voldemort can kill him. The Dark Lord told all Death Eaters not to kill Harry because he wants Harry for himself.

Harry doesn't know what the horcruxes look like, where they are, and he doesn't have any means of destroying them. While Harry is on this quest, he keeps having little glimpses into Voldemorts mind and he sees that The Dark Lord is also on a quest, but Voldemort's quest is to find a wand that Harry has never heard of, and when Harry investigates this a bit, his leads take him to a mysterious story about "The Deathly Hallows". So, while Harry is looking for the Horcruxes and learning more about "The Deathly Hallows", he finds himself in more danger that he's ever been in before. And when danger calls, people die... and in the last thriller of the Harry Potter series, fight breaks out and a lot of people die, and you will be in tears during every minute of this movie only to be in even more tears when it's over.
