At a time when so many comedies try to push the boundary lines of raunchiness as far as they can, this one deals in another, much rarer, commodity: sheer silliness.

"Prince Avalanche" is a difficult film to pigeonhole, and that's part of its appeal.

Fearless, funny, sprawling, messy, vulgar and honest: those are just a few adjectives that describe Judd Apatow’s 'This Is 40'. The film earns its stripes as a raunchy, R-rated comedy even before the main title appears onscreen.

If you’re a fan of the comedy generated by The State and 'Stella’s' David Wain, Ken Marino, and their performer pals, you’ll either be the perfect audience for 'Wanderlust' or you may find the humor overly familiar. I am not a diehard fan, and I found the film mildly amusing.

film review: Dinner For Schmucks

I’d like to extoll the virtues of a great comedy, but this isn’t it. A word of explanation: I come to Dinner for Schmucks at a disadvantage, because I love the French film on which it’s based, The Dinner Game (1998). I’ve also heard its creator, the brilliant writer-director Francis Veber, describe his filmmaking philosophy, and criticize Hollywood colleagues for always wanting to expand and complicate his material. (The Birdcage is the best translation ever made of a Veber property, but I still prefer his original, La Cage aux Folles.)
