Sausage Party

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's "Book of Mormon" moment — a marvelously animated, ecumenically equal-opportunity offender with hope, heart, humor, heroism & heft.

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

"Popstar" tips more sacred cows than it slaughters, but it's also not a satire of the way we live now. It's a wise, wicked satire of the way we leisure now.
David Patrick Kelly gets the upper hand on Ben Stiller in "Flirting with Disaster," writer-director David O. Russell's 1996 screwball comedy for Miramax Films.
