Al Pacino and Greta Gerwig star in this comedy drama adapted from Philip Roth's novel 'The Humbling'. Ageing actor Simon Axler (Pacino) is suffering from mental health problems and, with his once-successful career in decline, he considers suicide. He finds a new lease of life when he encounters Pegeen (Gerwig), a much younger gay woman who is the daughter of his friends, and the two embark on an unlikely affair. As their relationship develops Axler is given the opportunity to return to the stage, but can he successfully revive his career?
This rollicking and slightly absurd comedy from director Jesse Peretz (FIRST LOVE, LAST RITES) begins when Tom Reilly (Zach Braff) loses his promising chef job at a swanky New York restaurant. He is compelled to move to small-town Ohio to take a job with his father-in-law (Charles Grodin) at an advertising agency to support his wife, Sofia (Amanda Peet), and newborn son. Tom's adjustment to the rhythms and rituals of the office world is awkward at best, and complicated by the presence of an old high-school flame of Sofia's (Jason Bateman), a passive-aggressive paraplegic who schemes to get Sofia back. Meanwhile, Sofia must cope with the shock of switching roles from powerful big-city lawyer to stay-at-home suburban mother. Young working parents will identify with the familiar conflicts presented here as the embattled Tom and frustrated Sofia struggle to make sense of their new responsibilities. Braff purveys his patented nerdy charm as a nice guy whose behaviour becomes more and more manic as the rug gets continually pulled out from under him, and Peet is a lovely screen presence even as her character's patience and enthusiasm fade in less than attractive ways. Their performances blend wry intelligence with out-and-out slapstick, and they are supported by a superb ensemble cast including Amy Poehler, Amy Adams, Paul Rudd, Donal Logue, and Mia Farrow. While some of the situations and jokes border on tasteless, it's the smart kind of gross-out humor of a Farrelly Brothers or Jay Roach film, and the film never never loses its heart, as embodied by Braff and Peet.
Noah Baumbach writes and directs this comedy starring Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a childless married couple living in New York who befriend a younger and more exciting couple. Fed up of their friends who pressure them into beginning a family of their own, documentary film-maker Josh (Stiller) and wife Cornelia (Watts) meet hipster couple Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried) and start to enjoy the new and refreshing experiences that come with the territory. However, are Jamie and Darby's motivations for spending time with the older couple as harmless as they seem?
Beethoven, a cute, small St Bernard puppy, finds refuge from animal experimenter Dr Varnick in the tidy household of George Newton (Charles Grodin). There Beethoven grows very big and causes near chaos. Meanwhile Dr Varnick thinks Beethoven an ideal subject on which to test some new ammunition.
Jeff Bridges, Jessica Lange and Charles Grodin star in this remake of the adventure classic from director John Guillermin. Oil executive Fred Wilson (Grodin) sees the chance to make his fortune when he stumbles upon a remote island whose inhabitants worship a giant ape-god named Kong. Capturing the mighty beast, Wilson brings Kong back to New York, earmarking him as the greatest attraction to come to Broadway. The ape has other ideas, however, as he looks to escape and goes on the rampage through the streets of the Big Apple.
Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin star in this classic '80s comedy directed by Martin Brest. Bounty hunter Jack Walsh (De Niro) is assigned a case that involves catching an accountant (Grodin) who has jumped bail. However, the Mafia and a rival bounty hunter are also after the same target, and when Jack catches up with him, he finds himself cast in the unlikely role of his charge's protector.

As Charles Grodin says, "If you don't get wiser as you get older,
then you just get older." The core of this book is about
identifying our mistakes, learning from them, and not repeating
them. Charles Grodin, a very funny individual who has appeared in
movies, television and currently is on WCBS Radio every day, has
asked his friends (and friends of friends)--from Robert Redford,
Paul Newman, Shirley MacLaine, Alan Alda, Regis Philbin, Ben
Stiller, and others--to share sometimes very revealing memories of
the biggest mistake they've made.
