NEW YORK (AP) — Matthew McConaughey notched one of the worst debuts of his career, Oscar nominees saw only modest bumps and M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass" easily remained No. 1 on a quiet weekend in movie theaters.

NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Hart isn't hosting the Oscars, but he's got a number one movie. "The Upside," starring Hart and Bryan Cranston, surpassed expectations to open with $19.6 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday.
It's said that January is one of the prime months that Hollywood chooses to dump its most embarrassing films and "The Upside" doesn't exactly disprove that notion.
Few films in memory have squandered so much acting talent in such a cliche-ridden, exploitative and dishonest way. It deserves its frozen grave.

Thanks to required intimacy training sessions to help them appear more natural as a married couple for their new film "Wakefield," Garner discovered a lot about Cranston.
Have you ever fantasized about one day walking away from your well-ordered life? Just ditching work and the humdrum routine of life? You have? Then, before you go, you need to see the curiously brilliant film "Wakefield."
