LAIKA, the studio that brought us the Oscar-nominated animated feature 'ParaNorman,' is reuniting with Focus Features for a new animated project called 'The Boxtrolls' and it sounds too cute. Are these guys the new Pixar?
Fans of NBC's long-running meta series '30 Rock' no doubt appreciate the manic celebrity humor of Tracy Jordan, which unquestionably owes to the real-life quirkiness of star and former 'SNL' player Tracy Morgan.

Tina Fey certainly seems to think so, but why?
You'd think that a film starring a recent Academy Award winner (Melissa Leo), one of the best young actors of his generation (Jesse Eisenberg), the biggest comic on television (Tracy Morgan) and a celebrated actor from on of TV's best serials ('The Wire''s Isiah Whitlock) would be a lock. But the alleged comedy 'Why Stop Now' is here to prove that when a movie tries really, really hard to be awful it can overcome the obstacle of having a terrific ensemble cast.
