Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton star in 'And So it Goes' trailer -- VIDEO

Like Something’s Gotta Give and As Good as It GetsAnd So it Goes comes straight from the senior rom-com title blender. But the most crucial element of this trailer for the romantic comedy, starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton, is this phrase: “From the Director of The Bucket List.” This is another AARP-empowerment tale starring some of your parents’ favorite actors — and though it might not draw the attention of the under-30 crowd, it’s one of those movies that might make you wake up one day in August and say, “Whoa. When did And So It Goes get to $75 million?” READ FULL STORY

Meryl Streep 'wins' National Board of Review Awards, takes swipes at Disney

The National Board of Review announced its 2013 honorees on Dec. 4, with Her, Nebraska, and Fruitvale Station claiming some of the top prizes. That meant the only real suspense last night at the organization’s New York City gala was who would win the crowd and earn the best howls. Rob Reiner nearly stole the show, but it was Meryl Streep who brought down the house at Cipriani’s on 42nd Street. Streep, presenting the Best Actress award to Emma Thompson for Saving Mr. Banks, left her friend “nauseous with gratitude” with a heart-felt introduction that also took swipes at Walt Disney and the Disney brand.

'The Princess Bride': 10 INCONCEIVABLE facts from the Academy's live-commentary screening

“If you came tonight hoping to watch The Princess Bride completely uninterrupted, you really should just leave now.”

This was Up in the Air and Juno filmmaker Jason Reitman introducing last night’s live-commentary screening of the 1987 fairy-tale satire at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. As the film played out on the big screen, Reitman sat in the theater with director Rob Reiner interviewing him about the action onscreen.

“Tonight we’re trying an experiment,” Reitman told the crowd. “I thought there must be a way to take a film everyone has seen a million times, that we love, that occupies such a strong part of our hearts, and somehow get more access to what it was like actually making this film. That’s where this idea came from.”

Reiner started out by asking: “How many people here are under 30? Let me see. Raise your hand.” About a third of the moviegoers raised their hands. “Okay, so you are used to multitasking and not paying attention to anything anyway. This should be fine for you! You’ll watch, you’ll talk, you’ll text … You can play a video game. Whatever!”

“We’ll start watching the film and then, uh, see what comes out!”

Here’s what did:

1. At 60, Peter Falk thought he was too young

2. Hidden Spinal Tap easter egg

3. “As you wish” is a coded message

4. An unexpected fan: Mafia henchman

5. Robin Wright’s first day: Set on fire

6. The LEAST Sicilian Sicilian

7. Andre the Giant was fragile

8. The arsonist in the Fire Swamp

9. Buttercup was (briefly) played by a man

10. The ending that almost wasn’t
