Looking at Bradley Cooper for a couple of hours is never a bad thing, so there’s that. Otherwise, Limitless starts off as an ambitious, gripping, quasi-sci-fi thriller and turns into an over-the-top mess.

Jimmy Fallon has followed up his brilliant, timely Charlie Sheen impression with another priceless parody that couldn't be less timely: here's Fallon as Bob Dylan singing the theme to the totally forgettable old sitcom Charles in Charge.

Movie Review, Paul: Seth Rogen's Voice, E.T.-Shaped Skull

Paul, the CGI alien with Seth Rogen’s voice, is an irresistible creature. With an E.T.-shaped head and big blue eyes, he wears cargo shorts and flip-flops, smokes a cigarette, and best of all has Rogen’s deadpan delivery. When Paul appears to two British fan boys - so geeked out they’ve just left Comic-Con for an RV tour of America’s alien-sighting landmarks - the panicked men try to communicate in ways the English-speaking alien won’t understand. Rogen hilariously, accurately snaps, “Was that Klingon? You psychotic nerd!”

Tiger Woods, Thank Charlie Sheen

Tiger Woods visited Jimmy Fallon last night, and Fallon - who in the monologue called him “The one man out there who can actually say he’s filled with Tiger blood” - praised him for “your courage in coming on a late night comedy show.” Fallon thanked him on behalf of his comedy writers for all those double-entendre golf jokes that wrote themselves (balls!) after the career-decimating scandal that revealed Woods as a master womanizer, but the real thanks should go from Woods to Charlie Sheen.

Movie Review: Matthew McConaughey's Roguish "Lincoln Lawyer"

As a lawyer who’s a half-step away from being a scam artist, Matthew McConaughey’s character works every angle for his clients in The Lincoln Lawyer, just as McConaughey works every scene in this legal thriller. There’s nothing ambitious about it, but this sleek, commercial suspense movie is much more engaging than I expected it to be.

The strong responses from readers about the season premiere of Sister Wives shows how starkly the issue of polygamy divides people, from some who envy the Browns’ communal family to more skeptical readers who point out how much we don’t see on the reality show. (If you missed it, here’s my review and the comments; thanks to everyone for responding and feel free to add more.)

The third Pirates of the Caribbean was nearly unwatchable, so I hadn't given a thought to the fourth until this trailer arrived today. At the very least, Johnny Depp's direct invitation to moviegoers makes you want to follow him. And Ian McShane as Blackbeard looks like a well-cast villain.

Now we have the video proof that Zach Galifianakis really did shave his head backstage during the last break of Saturday Night Live. Of course there was never going to be time for a Mr. T. sketch, but this is the kind of stunt that makes his deadpan comedy work.
