Paramount provided some big updates on Noah and a couple of Tom Cruise movies when some company brass talked to THR — and those are things I look forward to, in different and separate ways. This, though? Perhaps a little less promising.

Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
