    A full half century has passed since Doris Day first bickered with Rock Hudson across the widescreen—meaning that Pillow Talk now feels about 75 years old. A sexually retrograde affair even in 1959 (when hard-charging Angie Dickinson beguiled view...

    A watered-down adaptation that’s embarrassed to be wet, Fifty Shades of Grey is a sex-positive but hopelessly soft-core erotic drama that fails to be even a fraction as titillating as the E.L. James books that inspired it. And yet, that’s exactly ...

    Spoofing James Bond is hardly a new idea (see Woody Allen in the 1967 Casino Royale, not to mention the entire Austin Powers franchise), but that hasn’t stopped writer-director Matthew Vaughn from trying his hand at a little counterespionage with ...

    Disney has clearly had enough of these bold princesses getting all empowered and messing with their fairy tales. After Frozen and Into the Woods, it’s back to basics with director Kenneth Branagh’s lavish, sappily sweet version of Cinderella. That...

    Like a small child with a set of steak knives, Get Hard gleefully wields sharp ideas but doesn’t inspire confidence. It’s a please-don’t-let-me-get-raped-in-prison comedy—there’s really no other way to put it—on top of which is layered a mock coat...

    A dusky lady looks quizzically out from a mosaic of gold leaf in the Klimt canvas once thought of as Austria’s Mona Lisa. For elderly Los Angeles resident Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), the painting’s a uniquely personal touchstone. A portrait of h...
