Total Recall: The Heartbreak Kid and the Movies of Neil Simon
After toning down the crude and turning up the cute for the last three years, the Farrelly brothers return to R-rated raunch territory with The Heartbreak Kid, opening this Friday. It's a remake of the 1972 Neil Simon film of the same name and this week we'll journey through the New York playwright's presence throughout cinematic history.

Richard Pryor Passes Away at 65
Richard Pryor passed away yesterday morning, and while he's probably best remembered for his incendiary stand-up material (as evidenced in 1979's "Live in Concert," 1982's "Live on the Sunset Strip," and 1983's "Here and Now") and his also-incendiary battle with an exploding freebase pipe, I'll always remember the guy as one of my favorite move-time comedians. And I know I'm not alone with that opinion.
