The move clearly solves some significant problems. Comedies, which are always among the year’s top-grossing films, never get a trip to the best picture party — Judd Apatow has always been a bystander when it comes to that storied walk to the dais. And well-made big movies — think “Iron Man,” not just “Dark Knight” — rarely get invited into the exclusive tent. And animated films that break through to become plain old great movies — “Wall-E” and “Ratatouille” come to mind — often end up in the animated category, which is viewed as the little kids’ table at the big show.Who woulda thunk?
Rogen is attached to and developing a road (trip?) comedy called Mother's Curse that he'll co-star in with Barbra Streisand. Yep, you heard that right, the same Barbra Streisand that brought us "Happy Days Are Here Again" and played Mrs. Focker in Meet the Fockers.
