The Croods
This weekend’s box office numbers played out pretty predictably, according to the ratings and predicted grosses of the films—this proved to be great news for some of last week’s releases, and not-so-great news for others. The Croods topped the charts this weekend, earning a hefty sum of $44.7 million; when it comes down to what kind of movie earns the most in the box office, it seems that you can’t beat a decent family film.

New 'Admission' Trailer Offers Tina Fey Life After '30 Rock'

Tina Fey is back on the big screen, and she's brought Paul Rudd with her. Unfortunately, if this latest Admission trailer is anything to go on, she's also brought a messy, schizophrenic script and some of director Paul Weitz's most disjointed work -- this 2:23 clip flits from broad goofball comedy to meet-cute rom-com to inspirational dramedy with alarming speed and alacrity, if not skill.
