I know I’ll catch hell from the Frozen fans for this, but Zootopia is the best move from Disney Animation since The Lion King (it also just set a box office record).  First of all, animals wearing people clothes is always the best, and every movie could be improved by the presence of an animal who thinks it’s people. Full Story

So you know how I was just recently saying that actor-directors are usually bad? Well, funny thing, Joel Edgerton just released his directorial debut, The Gift, and it’s really good. So while yes, fewer actors should become directors, Joel Edgerton gets a pass because he is actually good at it. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was out in LA yesterday supporting her very good friends, Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld, at the Inaugural Los Angeles Fatherhood Lunch to benefit Baby Buggy. They’ve been close for years. They hang out together in the Hamptons. They compare stone wood whatever pizza ovens in the backyard. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston was at a special screening of Cake hosted by American Cinematheque yesterday in Hollywood. The Q&A was moderated by her Horrible Bosses 2 co-star Jason Bateman. Is it corny here to make a joke about having your cake and eating it too? I understand the strategy here. But last week I wrote about Aniston’s hopes for Cake and campaigning for it at the same time as promoting Horrible Bosses 2. Full Story

Nicole Kidman acquired the rights to Kevin Wilson’s The Family Fang almost 3 years ago. Click here for my coverage of the story and my thoughts on the book. Briefly, The Family Fang is about Caleb and Camille Fang, renowned performance artists, who use their children in controversial public stunts (one of them involved the father prostituting his kids in a mall), secretly videotaping the public’s reaction, and then screening the footage at museums and galleries like it’s creative genius. Full Story

Who’s the horrible boss?

Horrible Bosses was a perfectly serviceable comedy that is most notable for featuring Charlie Day, because Charlie Day is a national treasure and any time he’s on screen it’s worth watching. And since it made $209 million at the box office, it got a sequel, which is due in November. Horrible Bosses 2 reunites Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Day, as well as brings back two of the three bosses from the first movie, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston. Full Story

Who is going to go see This Is Where I Leave You with me? It’s kind of hard to know who to take. I mean, this is not The Hunger Games where the companion had to be carefully thought through and it’s not Pitch Perfect where basically, seeing the movie with me became the prize because I was so delighted with the whole enterprise that I squealed and giggled and chortled and basically it was like those YouTube clips where laughing babies make you laugh. Full Story

Check out Jennifer and Justin Theroux arriving in Mexico yesterday with Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka for a double date holiday. Full Story

This is the new video for Hopeless Wanderer from Mumford & Sons. The band didn’t have to do anything. Because they don’t appear at all. Instead, in their places, are Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, and Will Forte. It’s a folk parody. It’s good. Especially the tambourine around Bateman’s neck and the fact that they each are carrying around like 18 instruments on their bodies. Full Story
