This morning we opined that sometimes "even months before release, [a film] is clearly fated for horrible reviews, worse box office and a quick trip to the bargain bin." It's usually a gut instinct and while "Gods Behaving Badly" could turn out to be great, given the premise and cast assembled here it kind of has camp classic written all over it.

You gotta hand it to Adam Sandler. No matter what you might think of his puerile excuses for movies, he's made a career out of getting paid to hang out with his friends and deliver loosely patched together series of images that he calls "movies." And he's getting another chance to roll with his homies, and this time, he won't even have to put up the pretense of shaving or wearing pants.

Jeremy Piven Was Left On The Cutting Room Floor & More From Sports Illustrated's Oral History Of 'Major League'Baseball movies are a notoriously hard sell, which is why they don't get made very often. But every once in a while, one connects, and 1989's "Major League" was nothing short of a homerun, finding favor with both audiences and diehard baseball fans, kicking off a franchise. Starring Charlie Sheen, Tom Berenger, Wesley Snipes, Corbin Bersen and Rene Russo, and directed by David S. Ward, the film follows the hapless Cleveland Indians, a team of misfits brought together for the sole purpose of drumming up a losing season so the owners can move the team. However, when the players catch wind of the plan, they band together and put together an improbable winning season.

Shocker: Bruce Willis/50 Cent Movie 'Set Up' Going Straight-To-DVDIt's no secret that Harvey Weinstein aka Harvey Scissorhands likes to maximize the movies under his roof to make sure they make the most bang for their buck. There is already the case of Tom Hooper's "The King' Speech" which was edited without his consent down to a PG-13 rating for a post-Oscar re-release. And Harvey admitted he was thinking about tinkering with Richard Ayoade's "Submarine" before it his theaters earlier this year (though wisely, he ultimately kept his hands off). But one recent acquisition has undergone a major overhaul on its way to theaters this fall.

'Atlas Shrugged Pt. 1' Heads To DVD/Blu-Ray In Fall, Producer Insists Sequel Will Arrive In 2012

Oh, "Atlas Shrugged." Promoted as being some kind of fiercely independent film that would find an audience with die hard Tea Party types, it ultimately played for virtually nobody, scraping a mere $4.6 million (on a budget of $20 million) during its five week run this spring, along with plenty of scathing reviews to go with it. Hardly surprising for a film that was launched not as any grand artistic endeavour, but mostly because the rights were about to expire unless something was cobbled together and throw up on screen. No surprise then that the result was an adaptation we called "soulless" and "cut-rate" no matter where you stand on Ayn Rand and her politics. Indeed, it even seemed like the filmmakers had thrown in the towel, with the muted response seemingly killing plans for the planned sequels with producer and financier John Aglialoro saying, “Critics, you won. I’m having deep second thoughts on why I should do Part 2… Why should I put up all of that money if the critics are coming like lemmings? I’ll make my money back and I’ll make a profit, but do I wanna go and do two? Maybe I just wanna see my grandkids and go on strike.” But keep hope alive Randians because another cheapie, rushed movie might on its way to you soon!

Last week documentary film “Salaam Dunk” premiered at Los Angeles Film Festival. A colorful and eye-opening portrait of life in modern Iraq that focuses on the story of the woman’s basketball team at American University of Iraq Sulaimani, we thought it was well worth your time. But going to a dangerous area of the world to film a human interest story has its challenges, and we had the opportunity to sit down with ‘Dunk’ helmer David Fine, to talk more about making the film, the value of stopping for tea and the universality of the sports picture.
