The Last Meatball: The Extinction of Harold Ramisnew

Ramis went missing several years ago after back-to-back flops and now, thanks to his arguable heir, Judd Apatow, Ramis returns. The problem is that he's awakened in a future much different than the time he knew.

'Year One' Tries (and Fails) to be a Monty Python Movienew

Harold Ramis has had a hand in some seriously great comedies -- Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day -- but, lest we forget, he was also responsible for Club Paradise and Stuart Saves His Family. Year One might be better than either of those movies, but not by much.

Weather Alert

The Ice Harvest certainly knows what kind of movie it is. In this Mob-world heist comedy, everyone's in on the scam.

Slush Fundnew

It's perfectly possible to enjoy The Ice Harvest, just as soon as you recognize it as Harold Ramis's willful attempt to thwart every expectation he's built up in his career as a cineplex funster.

Common Coldnew

Director Harold Ramis says his film is about far more than two men swindling a mobster out of $2 million on Christmas Eve: It's about the fact that no one can be trusted anymore.

Lack of Big Laughs and True Grit Put Film on Thin Icenew

The slick adaptation of Scott Phillips' well-received noir novel feels more like a vehicle for 61-year-old director and his screenwriters to work out their macho midlife crises.

Holiday on Icenew

Instead of an action comedy that’s as slick as ice, Harold Ramis’ sardonic new comedy is more like an uncongealed river of slush.
