Review: Ride Along 2

PLOT: Atlanta cop James Payton and his imminent brother-in-law Ben Barber travel to Miami to bust up a drug ring. Hilarity ensues. REVIEW: RIDE ALONG 2 is such a bummer to sit through.

Granted, it's still a few people talking and pontificating about the possibilities, but that's how these projects come together quickly.

Reese Witherspoon would be down to do Legally Blonde 3

It's no secret that studios are mining their property archives like mad in the hopes of reviving something that people liked once upon a time. If it worked then, maybe it could work again now, with the nosalgia factor being a big key in hopefully luring back that once-game audience. So why wouldn't LEGALLY BLONDE 3 be a possibility? The first two movies worked well enough for fans...
