CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

Here is the synopsis for “R.I.P.D.”:
Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds headline the 3D supernatural action/adventure “R.I.P.D.” as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest in Peace Department. They are charged with protecting and serving the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side.
Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary R.I.P.D. police force tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth.
Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.
“R.I.P.D.” is directed by Robert Schwentke (“Red”) and produced by Neal H. Moritz (“Fast & Furious” series, “I Am Legend”), Mike Richardson (“Hellboy,” “Hellboy II: The Golden Army”) and Michael Fottrell (“Fast & Furious” series, “Live Free or Die Hard”).
