Dinner For Schmucks: We’re Gonna Need Another Place Setting

There aren’t many careers that have a shelf life as short as a top American comic actor. You probably get 5 to 6 years tops before for whatever reason you start making films that aren’t funny. It’s always sad to see this happen, but Steve Carell seems to be deliberately trying to break my heart.

The A-Team: If you have a problem, if no one else can help…just blow it up!

You know that time is getting on when your childhood television memories are being raided by Hollywood for blockbuster material.
