You know how some people get excited about the next big superhero film coming out? I get excited about those too since they are usually thrill-packed action flicks, but I’m very excited this week since I’ve been waiting for the new Paul Rudd movie to come out. For those that have read my site know that I have a fascination with Paul Rudd. I have come to love him very much so I’m thrilled that he’s headlining a movie that looks very funny. Sure there is a movie coming out this week with sexy Clive Owen, but he’s no Paul Rudd. The other big movie coming out this week is one where Nicolas Cage once again keeps getting older, but his wives/girlfriends in movies keep getting younger.
