We could stretch it to more than four, but let’s stay focused. All ears, of course, will be on Ricky Gervais, as we wonder what he can possibly do to top his hilarious, irreverent turn as host last year. The first five minutes should tell.

Ricky Gervais has been making the media rounds pumping up his Golden Globes appearance on Sunday, and has played it fairly safe while insisting he’s going to take risks as host.

Edward Burns’ latest film, Newlyweds, is a delightfully witty, sharply observed romance that comes with its own amazing origin story. Although you wouldn’t guess it from the film’s clear, bright look, it was shot for a pittance -- around $9,000, yes that’s thousand – in recognizable locations around Tribeca (that's the Franklin St. subway stop in the background of the photo above). Shoestring budgets don’t get stringier.
