Film review: 'Interview' deserves to be seen

By JAKE COYLE The Associated Press That I was one of the relative few to see "The Interview" is not a boast I take any pleasure in.

The movie's prospects of ever seeing the light of day are ...

A sweet 'Night at the Museum' bids farewell to Robin Williams

By LINDSEY BAHR The Associated Press Take heed: There are at least two acutely sad moments involving Robin Williams' Teddy Roosevelt in the latest "Night at the Museum." The movie, subtitled "Secret of the Tomb," is imbued with the unshakable inevitability that even though we're still having fun, it's time to move on--a narrative made only more poignant by Williams's sudden and shocking death earlier this year. It's hard not to concentrate on his ...
