Foul-mouthed without being particularly funny, involved without being compelling, Judd Apatow's This Is 40 wants to be deeper than it really is. Which is an Apatowian trademark.

Regina Weinreich

The Campaign plays the current election season for laughs. Candidates for Congress, Will Ferrell as Cam Brady and Zach Galifianakis as Marty Huggins vie for votes in a how-low-can-you-go campaign.

Stage Door: Ghost, The Columnist

Fern Siegel | Posted 06.28.2012 | Arts
Fern Siegel

There is a difference between an apparition and the real thing -- and the same can be said of a Broadway show. It can be rendered cinematically, as in Ghost, The Musical, thereby becoming a musical that thinks it's a movie.
