*** (out of four) I fell madly in love with the best scenes in “Like Crazy,” and there are several of them. So it's nearly as heartbreaking as the film itself to recognize that it's merely a good movie with some greatness in it.   To call the plot simple would be suggesting that relationships are simple, and the whole point of writer-director Drake Doremus' fourth film is that they're not. At least, not as simple as they should be,...

In Fox's "The Following," Wilmette native Nico Tortorella plays one-third of a serial killer love triangle that henceforth shall be called "Jemmaul. " "Jemmaul, I like that," the 24-year-old told me, laughing, when I suggested that nickname, PauJaMma (pronounced Paw-jam-ma) and Jacmaul. "That's definitely the best one. " "Jemmaul" is Jacob (Tortorella's character), Emma (Valorie Curry) and Paul (Adan Canto), three people who have fallen under the spell of serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy)

*1/2 (out of four)   It's a miracle! Not one of those happy miracles, though. More like, “Sorry, Bella, there's now a vampire growing inside you.”   That's because 18-year-old Bella (Kristen Stewart) and her new, much-older-than-that vampire husband Edward (Robert Pattinson) didn't think she could get pregnant. Their error puts a major damper on a Brazilian honeymoon that cools off after Edward decides any more sex will make him murder his wife.   So after just a few days of bliss following a rushed,...

*1/2 (out of four) For a B-movie about street fighting, titles don't get much better than “Welcome to the Punch.” Unless you call your movie, I don't know, “The Time Your Balls Met My Foot.” Sadly, the Punch is just a location in “Welcome to the Punch,” which is actually a serious and seriously clichéd British crime flick with cops and criminals who have never heard of a trap. Obsessive cop Max Lewinsky (James McAvoy, pulling double duty with this week's “Trance”)

In the first season of "Chosen" ( 2:01 a.m. Thursday, crackle.com; 3 stars out of 4 ), a Los Angeles lawyer and his family couldn't avoid a deadly game of kill-or-be-killed, finally succumbing to the twisted desires of the mysterious puppet master who was pulling their strings. The second season continues the story of Ian Mitchell (Milo Ventimiglia), his ex-wife Laura (Nicky Whelan), and their daughter, who are all on the run after Laura received an order she did not wish to carry out in the Season 1 cliffhanger.

Zero stars (out of four) A Chicago-native filmmaker with any loyalty to hometown crowds should never, ever claim a scene takes place in Detroit while blatantly displaying the exterior of Ukrainian Village's Rainbo Club and the Division Street sign. In director/co-writer Bob Meyer's horribly written, shockingly amateur “Drunkboat,” the embarrassment to our city doesn't end there. Following an introductory scene in which he wears a mop on his head, Vietnam vet Mort (John Malkovich)

**1/2 (out of four) What a week for bad behavior. While Denzel Washington's heroic, drug- and alcohol-addicted pilot in “Flight” is getting raves, “The Details” presents a character study with rougher edges and more to say than, “It's difficult but important to admit when you have a problem.” Doing no favors for stereotypes about priorities that drive the male brain, Jeff (Tobey Maguire) digs himself into an increasingly deeper hole with multiple fouls. He sleeps with his gorgeous friend,...

Dahling, you don't look a day over 28. Ryan Gosling celebrates his 33rd birthday Tuesday, and while his friends and family are sure to get him some thoughtful gifts, rabid fans probably want to get in on the action too. (JK, only the ones who also are rabid stalkers.) To help them in their quest toward a restraining order, we've compiled a list of thoughtful presents to get the Gos, based on his movies. Blow-up doll Obvi. Longtime rumor has it that Gosling took his rubberized “Lars and the Real Girl” co-star home with him, but he's probably due for a new one by now. Nicotine patches ...

“Don't do it,” whispers “Like Crazy” star Felicity Jones. “Stay away!” urges co-star Anton Yelchin. That's their advice for people thinking of getting into a long-distance relationship, and the actors are only sort of kidding. The romantic, sad “Like Crazy,” opening Nov. 4, demonstrates that bridging a love across London and Los Angeles isn't as easy as just knowing the other person cares about you. When British college student Anna (Jones) violates her visa to spend the summer with her American...
