>> is this for adults and children? ?

>> this is really a kids film. adults will like the way it looks and frankly they've spent a lot of time getting the 3-d animation right. you might wish they spent more time on the story.

>> tina fey and paul rudd , they have a new movie.

>> it's got a little more substance. tina fey is a princeton admissions officer, all about getting into college and also about family.

>> not a date night movie but "olympus has fallen" trouble at the white house and this seems like a shoot 'em up from start to finish.

>> not only does it seem a shoot 'em up, it seems a little bit like "die hard" a butter in the white house , a secret service agent, the white house has been captured. the president, what's going to happen?

>> i got the message. let's go to music, blake shelton , start with him.

>> three women just passed out in the corner and a cameraman, that's weird. if he wants to reassess things, he's lost perspective. he's been acting since he was 8 years old on "the mickey mouse club ." we can expect one movie before he disappears.

>> he wants to take a break, not quit forever.

>> he hasn't said how long but maybe a few months.

>>> jessica chastain has a new ad campaign overseas. when i was in rome i saw it everywhere.

"mirrors" came out, a tribute to his grandparents, they were together for 63 years, his grandfather passed away sadly in december but it's a tear-jerker, it's eight minutes long but he's only in the last two minutes of the video, so grab some tissues, it can be a little sad. he's getting to gear up for a tour with jay-z in the summer so he's rockin' it.
