No fooling, cinema-goers, April is the first month of 2014 that is absolutely stocked to the gills with (hopefully) quality movies in every genre imaginable. I mean, we know some of these movies are going to stink, but the ratio of success to failure will likely be in our favor.

Ivan Reitman's Draft Day Wins Appeal For PG-13 Rating

Orignally the film was going to have an R-rating due to "brief strong language," which is a polite way of saying that the word "fuck" was used one too many times.

Smallville's Tom Welling Hits The Gridiron In Ivan Reitman's Draft Day

Veep's Timothy Simons Will Add Laughs To Ivan Reitman's Draft Day

Simons is best known as the insufferably proud White House rep Jonah Ryan on HBO’s Veep, which returns April 18.

Ivan Reitman is responsible for directing some of the greatest comedies of all time, from Ghostbusters to Stripes to Dave, but in recent years he has lost his touch a little. Both of his last two films, My Super Ex-Girlfriend and No Strings Attached were dreadful and its hard to come up with a lot of positive adjectives for the two that preceded those, Evolution and Six Days, Seven Nights (not to mention clunkers like Father's Day and Junior).
