Justin Long, the actor who took a few to the head in the 2004 film “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story,” has sold his Hollywood Hills house for $2.055 million. Long works on both coasts and no longer needed the house. The contemporary Mediterranean was built in 1990 and sits on nearly a third of an acre.  Hand-hewn wooden doors open to an enclosed courtyard.

JUSTIN LONG has about an hour and a half before he has to drive from Santa Monica to Burbank to shoot some footage for the website of his upcoming movie "Accepted." And though the hip and trendy Urth Caffe on Main Street does have awesome soup, and he is very into soup, the line is prohibitively long so he suggests Mani's Bakery, which is just a few doors down, as an alternative.

And I thought the manic pixie dream girl had run her course. Apparently not, for she rears her cute, perky head again in "A Case of You," star Justin Long's debut as a writer and producer. Here, Brooklynite Sam (Long) has tired of writing novelizations for movies like "Teen Vampire. " He finds inspiration in Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood), the friendly barista at his neighborhood coffee shop with artsy friends. But instead of risking that she won't like the real him, he shapes himself into her dream guy based on her Facebook page, learning judo, French cooking and how to strum Joan Baez on the guitar.

The afterlife in "After.Life" is deadly. Really.Deadly. It's where the not-quite dead exist before they finally cease to, specifically a cold back room in a ghastly funeral home somewhere in the Midwest. According to "After.Life," which stars Christina Ricci and Liam Neeson, it takes a human being about four days to stop being, depending on scheduling and how long the undertaker wants to chat. The afterlife is not, however, nearly as deadly or as ghastly as the movie itself, an undertaking so tortured that it digs a deeper grave with every passing scene.

The largely engaging class-reunion dramedy "10 Years" allows audiences to pretend they went to high school with the likes of Channing Tatum, Justin Long, Rosario Dawson, Anthony Mackie and Kate Mara. But at some point, they are also going to have to pretend the film, written and directed by Jamie Linden (the screenwriter of "Dear John" and the fine "We Are Marshall"), is deeper and more essential than it actually is; there's a lot of been-there, done-that going on. That said, this very distant, slightly more youthful cousin to "The Big Chill" presents a convincing version of a 10-year high school reunion, one that eschews excess and melodrama for a wistful visit with a clutch of decent guys and gals who've chugged forward over the last decade, some more happily - and expectedly - than others.

Like many comic actors, when he doesn't have to be "on," Charlie Day can be almost unrecognizably normal. "People have to remember that we write and produce that television show, which is a pretty heavy workload," says the calm, bearded star of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and costar of the new romantic comedy "Going the Distance. " "So when I'm not playing a character that is huffing glue and eating cat food and sleeping in my long underwear with Danny DeVito [as on the show]
