Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Michael Gambon, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, and the rest of the cast you’ve come to expect from the Potter movies
Harry (Radcliffe) begins his sixth year at Hogwarts in a whirlwind. Dumbledore (Gambon) pops up out of nowhere with his hand mangled.

The plot moves along a lot of important details and character development, and love interests show up all over the place. ….

The largely famous comedian realizes Ira’s comedic talent and asks him to write material for him and be his opening act. The laughs then begin to rapidly snowball between the two character’s (and company’s) delivery of Apatow’s familiar, witty, clever and reference-filled written humor. A- (Misty Johnson)
