Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are back at it again in The Internship, recreating their dynamic duo energy as sort of post-Wedding Crashers Luddite salesmen who need to learn the ways of the modern, tech-filled world before they become unemployable dinosaurs. So these losers grown men land an internship… at Google. Hijinx follow. Vaughn’s third [...]

New Art Correspondent Freddi C hits up MOCA for opening night

We previewed the Transmission LA: AV CLUB last week, and sent new Art Correspondent Freddi C with mic and camera in tow to check out the exhibit. This was her recap… As the sun set downtown at the Geffen Contemporary MOCA, the Veuve flowed under an enormous shiny Mercedes-Benz logo suspended to look like a giant [...]

We were guests of Mercedes-Benz last night at their Transmission LA: AV CLUB exhibit, and the show was by all means a great success.

The Invention of Lying, Twilight New Moon, Couples Retreat and Sherlock Holmes in short blast format

While flying to Italy for another top secret mission (to be disclosed in the very near future) I was forced to suffer through Lufthansa’s in-flight entertianment, which actually isn’t all that bad.
