Steve Carell and Tina Fey play a married couple in this week's release, "Date Night." So when MTV News got a hold of the duo, it seemed fitting that we have them take a compatibility test. Why? Well, because it's totally useful to know how perfect these two would be together if they were, you know, actually in love in real life. Plus, as Tina put it: "We are [really] married people, but I like this test."
Question 1: "Star Trek" or "Star Wars"
Both: "Star Wars"
It's funny to think that, 10 years ago, Justin Timberlake was just the Jheri Curled fan favorite from the hit boy band 'N Sync. While we might have thought back then that Justin would be around for a long time (and, of course, we were right), we weren't expecting 'N Sync to be long out of commission and Justin to be making quite a name for himself in movies.
Up until now, JTims has been best known for his awesome surprise appearances on "SNL" Digital Shorts (who could have seen "Dick in a Box" ever being an actual song really?) as well as taking secondary roles in "Alpha Dog" and "The Love Guru." He has some pretty big projects coming up, like "The Social Network" and "Yogi Bear," but again, neither has offered him the role of leading man. But it looks like Justin's stars might be changing.
Matt Bomer on the big screen? Yes please. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the "White Collar" star (and former Hump Day Hottie) is in talks to join the Anna Faris R-rated comedy "What's Your Number?"
In the flick, about a woman who visits all her ex-boyfriends to make sure none of them are the man of her dreams. Matt's set to play Anna's dream guy, to which we say "duh." Of course he's her dream guy. He's ours too.
James Franco has proven over the past few years he's far from just a pretty (OK, very pretty) face by starring in dramatic fare such as "Milk," and "Howl," but we think it's his comedic chops that put him a step above the rest. From his early roots on "Freaks and Geeks" to his Golden Globe nominated turn in the stoner comedy "Pineapple Express," James has made dopey so darn endearing. In the new screwball comedy "Date Night," it looks as though James is poised to have us rolling in the aisles yet again.
In our exclusive clip from the film, a tattooed, sleeveless Taste (James) and his girlfriend Whippit (Mila Kunis) are getting ready to make an escape from their apartment where a couple named Phil and Claire (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) whose date night has gone terribly awry, are seeking their help.

We make lists all the time, whether it’s a shopping list, grocery store list, a to-do list, a check list … but has anyone ever made a break up list? In the new film, “Breaking Upwards,” which screened at the South by Southwest film festival, real-life NYC couple, Daryl Wein and Zoe Lister Jones do just that — strategize a plan for their own separation. Interesting to say the least!
In this exclusive clip of the film, we see Daryl and Zoe sit down to come up with their own “goals” that range from what one might expect, such as trying new things, to control over one’s Netflix queue and stating claim over public space.
Gerard Butler wants all of you to know that the reason he signed on to do "The Bounty Hunter" was not because it starred a hot lady (Jennifer Aniston) or because it had a love story, it's because he really wanted to go on an adventure. "At that point, I didn't have an interest in doing a straight up rom com," he recalled of being cast. "I wanted to make a movie that I would go and see. It's really a guy's movie as well."
A guys movie, really? Please enlighten us. "There's romance in it, but it's definitely first and foremost an action comedy," he explained to Hollywood Crush. "That's what was so appealing about it. It felt like it was a throwback to a lot of those great 80s comedies — 'Midnight Run,' 'Lethal Weapon,' 'Beverly Hills Cop' — where there's a great mixture of all of those things."
Like screenwriter Allan Loeb promised, the Jennifer Aniston/Jason Bateman comedy "The Baster" did indeed have a name change, and today the first trailer for "The Switch" debuted (see it after the jump!). Something must be in the air, because today has been a really good day for debut trailers, and we're loving what "The Switch" has to offer.
Love, you say? Let us count the ways:
1. Jen and Jason do have"When Harry Met Sally" chemistry, though we're thinking Jason's character Wally is a bit more of a sap over Jen's character Kassie than Harry was over Sally. But we love seeing the two of them in action together because it makes the plot of the film seem a lot more grounded.

Is Anna Faris the new go to girl for female focused versions of male-driven comedies? Two weeks ago we learned the “House Bunny” actress will co-star with Jennifer Garner in “The Bachelorette Party,” a comedy pitched as a female version of “The Hangover."
She remains a rumored choice for the role of the first female Ghostbuster in “Ghostbusters III.” And now she’s set for an R-rated rom-com titled “What’s Your Number?” that sounds loosely like a woman’s take on “High Fidelity.”
The whole relationship advisor thing worked for Will Smith in “Hitch,” but can Nicole Kidman pull it off as well? As reported by New York Magazine's Vulture, Nicole is set to star in Relativity Media’s “The Wedding Doctor.” The film is exactly what it sounds like, Nicole’s character is a wedding doctor, someone who advises couples on their relationships pre-nuptials. A problem arises when she assesses her newest clients and concludes that she’s the better match for the groom-to-be. Now she and his fiancée are in the midst of an intense showdown.
Vulture points out the clear difference between Nicole and Will. No, not their skin tone, but Will’s booming career as opposed to Nicoles’s recent series of flops. Her last romantic comedy, a film adaptation of the popular show “Bewitched,” didn’t work any magic on the box office. So, why go for such a high cost actress when positive results aren’t guaranteed? There are tons of leading ladies who’ve found success in the genre. There’s Katherine Heigl, Anna Faris, Amy Adams or how about Leslie Mann? She’s certainly earned an opportunity to take a starring role.
There are three months until the anticipated release of "Sex and the City 2" and not much is known about the project. A theatrical trailer has been released, along with the information that Miley Cyrus and Penelope Cruz are going to make cameo appearances, but beyond that, few details have been available. Fortunately, when we caught up with She's Out Of My League" star Alice Eve, she was willing to spill a few of the beans about her previously unnamed character.
"There's only like three and a half things that I can say, but I am really excited about it," Alice said with a laugh. The 28-year-old Brit plays Charlotte's Irish nanny, Erin. "I spice things up a bit," she explained as her third secret.
