We love movies and we especially love movies with great ensemble casts. There's nothing better than seeing our favorite actors and actresses sharing screen time with one another, feeding off of each others' performances and upping each others' game. With a decent script and the right director, a great ensemble cast can create cinematic gold.
It's because of our love for movies with great ensemble casts that we are eagerly anticipating writer-director Martin McDonagh's (In Bruges) new black comedy, Seven Psychopaths. The plot is a bit out there, but with a cast that includes Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, we're sure to be treated to some combustible onscreen chemistry. Seven Psychopaths doesn't come out until next week, so help us pass the time until its release by rating the Top 10 Great Ensembles in Good Movies.

Just how difficult has career advancement gotten in the 21st century? In Dinner for Schmucks — based on the French movie The Dinner Game — Tim (Paul Rudd) is desperate to get ahead in his career, but the only way to do so is to curry favor with his boss, who likes nothing better than to throw dinner parties where his execs bring along out-and-out idiots as their very special guests. Fortunately, Tim's found a perfect candidate in IRS employee Barry (Steve Carell). Unfortunately, that means Tim is going to be spending quite a bit of time with a guy whose intellectual engagement with the world doesn't rise much above giggling at monkeys on the TV.
