LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Moana Wins Thanksgiving Box Office

Disney's very good year continued apace across the typically busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend – which for movies usually stretches from the Wednesday before the actual celebration. Moana , the company's latest animated offering, got off to a strong start at the American box office, earning $55.5 million for the weekend and $81.1 million across the period from its release on Wednesday, according to studio estimates. That figure means Moana enters the charts as Disney's second-highest opening in the Thanksgiving period, behind just Frozen, and seems likely to have the same longevity – adding in its overseas totals, the movie is sailing towards $100 million after just a few days. With the all-powerful 'toon sweeping into the top spot, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them had to vacate its throne after just one week, but still earned a healthy $45.1 million across the three-day weekend. And Doctor Strange slipped to third with $13.3 million after four weeks in th

Movie Review: BAD SANTA 2 Movie Is F**king hilarious!

F**king hilarious! Rama is back. Pardon my French but BAD SANTA 2 is f**king hilarious! As a fan of the first film who had been waiting for more than a decade, this sequel is every bit as funny as I expected it to be. Billy Bob Thornton is back in his not-giving-a-sh*t attitude, Tony Cox cusses up a storm like a maestro, and Kathy Bates is downright irreverent. There’s a certain irresistible appeal that comes with being unapologetic and that’s what BAD SANTA 2 gives ya! Billy Bob Thornton returns as the nasty drunken loser Willie Soke who once again teams up with his angry little sidekick Marcus, played by Tony Cox. This time, their heist target is a charity organization in Chicago, run by the curvaceous Diane (Christina Hendricks) who seems decent from the outside but can actually be horny at times. That place is also where Willie discovers that his mom, Sunny Soke, (Kathy Bates) is actually the brain behind this little criminal operation of theirs. Let’s just say that t

Billy Bob Talks Bad Santa 2

Billy Bob Thornton is in negotiations to reprise his foul-mouthed role in a sequel to 2003's " Bad Santa ," TheWrap has learned. "We feel that it’s a Christmas perennial for the R-rated crowd," a Weinstein Company spokesperson confirmed. "Everyone loves the character and Billy Bob’s excited to be in talks with us." Thornton let the cat out of the bag during a panel at this year's SXSW festival where he was promoting his Willie Nelson documentary " The King of Luck ." The actor has made no secret of his desire to play the alcoholic, safe-cracking department store Claus again, but it seems that a deal will now happen sooner rather than later. In December, Miramax announced that it would partner with the Weinstein Company on a follow up to " Bad Santa ," as well as sequels to " Swingers " and " Rounders ." No word yet on when filming will take place and if Terry Zwigoff ("Ghost World") will re
