The 44-year-old actor questioned whether the Disney animation is "doing some serious damage" to his eldest child due to its characters.
Just like millions of children around the world, Vince Vaughn's young daughter, Lochlyn, is a huge fan of Disney's 'Frozen', but it sounds like the 4-year-old fan may be taking the animated fairy-tale a bit too seriously.
Vince Vaughn says 'Frozen' may be "doing some serious damage" to his daughter
While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (March 4th), the 'Unfinished Business' actor revealed his eldest child watches 'Frozen' "like it is her job" and that Elsa is her favourite character.

Urgh. Unfinished Business. Just Urgh.
Early contender! We have an early contender for worst movie of 2015 and a potential nominee for the Razzies next year. Unfinished Business - the new comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Dave Franco - has a 14% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes after a slew of excoriating reviews.
Vince Vaughn heads up the cast in Unfinished Business
It tells the story of a small business owner (Vaughn) and his two associates (Tom Wilkinson, who should know better, and Dave Franco, who probably shouldn't) who travel to Europe to close an important deal. However, the business trip goes off the trails with the boys ending up a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit. It's funny because they are two different things.
Continue reading: Is 'Unfinished Business' The Worst Movie Of 2015?
More than just a misfire, this attempt at a rude comedy goes so spectacularly wrong that it actually contradicts its own jokes even as it's telling them. But then it undermines everything as it goes along, for example indulging rampantly in comical cruelty before trying to say something meaningful about the dangers of bullying. The real question is how the cast members could have agreed to make a movie in which they all come across as incoherent idiots.
The story opens as Dan (Vince Vaughn) clashes with his boss Chuck (Sienna Miller) then quits dramatically, taking newly retired Tim (Tom Wilkinson) and airhead newbie Mike (Dave Franco) with him to start a new sales company. But after a year, business isn't good, and the future hinges on making a massive deal with Bill and Jim (Nick Frost and James Marsden). The problem is that Chuck is also bidding for the business, so Dan, Tim and Mike fly off to Maine and then Berlin to seal the deal with a handshake. Impossibly they arrive in Berlin at the same time as Oktoberfest, the marathon, a gay S&M festival and the G8 Summit, with its accompanying anarchist protest. Meanwhile back home, Dan's wife (June Diane Raphael) is having problems with the kids.
Frankly, there is so much going on in this film that it's exhausting. It's as if screenwriter Conrad just threw everything he could think of onto the page and didn't worry if it made even a lick of sense. Every scene feels interrupted by a bit of random chaos that isn't remotely amusing. And despite making a movie that's obsessed with sex, the filmmakers are unable to decide whether they want to make fun of it or are terrified of it (so they end up being both at the same time). Each time something interesting or funny threatens to happen, it's sideswiped by something so breathtakingly bungled that we don't know where to look.

Vince Vaughn says 'True Detective' season 2 is "very different" to first.
Nobody expects True Detective season 2 to capture the mood and atmosphere of the critically acclaimed first season. The magic that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson created from Nic Pizzolatto's script and Cari Fukunaga's stunning direction was unprecedented for a television crime drama.
Vince Vaughn says True Detective season 2 is "very different"
However, season 2 has the potential and opportunity to take the series in another direction and armed with the creative talents of Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly, it would be risky to bet against the second outing reaching the heights of its predecessor.

The 44-year-old actor only had pleasant words to say about his time dating the 'Friends' alum, but he did admit the media attention strained their relationship.
Back in 2006, almost one year after Jennifer Aniston went through a very public divorce with Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn began dating the 'Friends' alum and they soon became one of Hollywood's most talking about new couples.
Vaughn says Aniston was "great" when they dated in 2006
While speaking with Playboy magazine almost one decade later, the 44-year-old actor only had pleasant words to say about Aniston, whom he dated for over a year, but he also recalled the hardest part about being intimate with a fellow A-Lister.
Starry line-ups hit the red carpet to premiere Exodus and The Hobbit 3, London is transformed into Vienna for M:I 5, fanboys go into meltdown about James Bond and Star Wars, and new trailers land for Unfinished Business and Big Eyes...
Ridley Scott was on hand for the premiere of his new biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings in London this week. Also on the red carpet were cast members Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, Maria Valverde and Golshifteh Farahani, plus other guests like Salma Hayek and Andy Serkis. The film opens next week in America and on Boxing Day in Britain.
Another new gig for Colin Farrel - do you see a pattern here?
Colin Farrell – heartthrob, new star of True Detective and now, the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s scent Intenso. It’s a perfect fit, right?
Colin Farrell joining forces with Dolce & Gabbana - why is this just happening now.
Designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana thought so too and said as much in their statement: “We are incredibly happy to be working with such a great talent. When we created this fragrance, we immediately thought of Colin. He is the perfect embodiment of male strength and sensuality.”
If you only watch one video this week, make it this one. True Detective fans, this is required viewing.
Ellen Page and Kate Mara are two of Hollywood’s favourite sweethearts, but we love them even more (if that’s even possible) after their True Detective parody for Funny or Die. Possibly inspired by the news from earlier this week that Vince Vaughn and Collin Farrell will be joining the HBO hit, the starlets filmed their own take on the show. It’s called Tiny Detectives and it’s exactly what it sounds like.
If Ellen Page doesn't star in True Detective, HBO should definitely consider a spinoff, based on Tiny Detective.
The premise: since people were unhappy with the new True Detective cast, HBO have decided to re-cast. But with Page at 5’1’’ and Mara not exactly towering at 5’2’’, their characters have had to take a very… creative approach to detective work. For one, they can’t see the evidence half the time. Also, they sometimes have to sit on magazines to see over the dashboard of their cop car. And I won’t spoil the rest, but you won’t make it past the 1:10 mark without laughing, that’s for sure. Basically, go watch the video right now. You know, just in case you needed a reminder of why these two are awesome. Or if you have an afternoon or so, you could just dive straight into a pit of three-minute comedy videos. No judgement.
Rachel McAdams is reportedly in talks with the makers of 'True Detective' for the lead female role in the second season of the Emmy Award winning show.
Rachel McAdams is rumoured to be in talks with the makers of the second series of True Detective. The 35-year-old Canadian actor is not the only star reportedly being considered and other names in the mix include Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Michelle Forbes (The Killing).

Who's playing who in True Detective season 2?
The True Detective season 2 plot has been shrouded in secrecy since Nic Pizzolato announced the follow up to the ground-breaking HBO drama, though, in a week that has seen both Vince Vaughn and Elisabeth Moss linked to roles, it appears industry mag The Wrap have stumbled upon a breakdown of the narrative.

Apparently the second season of True Detective will follow the death of Ben Caspar, a corrupt city manager in a fictional Californian city. He's found brutally murdered amid a huge transportation deal that would change freeway gridlock in the state. Now - and this is where the new cast members come in - three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out the identity of the murderer, though they soon discover that the investigation has darker implications than initially thought.

Vince Vaughn for 'True Detective' season 2: really?

According to one source who spoke with E! News, Vaughn is in "preliminary discussions" to play one of four lead roles, with Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch also thought to be in talks. Casting rumors for True Detective season two have been rife since the season one finale. Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt were reportedly attached to the project though it appears neither will now appear.

In remaking his 2011 French Canadian surprise hit Starbuck, filmmaker Ken Scott doesn't really try to do anything new. Aside from transplanting the story to New York and casting Hollywood star Vince Vaughn, it's exactly the same movie: likeable enough, even without attempting to do anything new or solve the problems of the original film.
Vaughn plays David, a slacker trying to pay off his debts and support his newly pregnant girlfriend (Smulders) by delivering meat for his butcher dad (Blumenfeld). Then David learns that, after donating sperm 20 years earlier, he has 533 biological children. When 142 file a class-action suit to learn the identity of the donor "Starbuck", David hires his inexperienced lawyer pal Brett (Pratt) to represent him in court. In the mean time, he begins to quietly follow his "kids" around like a sort of guardian angel. Then the press gets hold of the story, and he worries that his identity will be revealed.
Without trying too hard, Vaughn brings considerable charm to this character, so we like him even though David has no direction in his life. Vaughn is great at balancing the comical and dramatic elements of the story, notably in his hilarious scenes with Pratt and the more emotional interaction with three of the kids (Reynor, Robertson and Chanler-Berat). There's also a significant, moving sequence at the end between Vaughn and Blumenfeld.

The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.
Delving into the science of fathering 533 kids in 'Delivery Man.'
Vince Vaughn plays the biological father to 533 children in his latest movie, Delivery Man. And while the plot doesn’t dictate that a great deal of intercourse led to this ridiculous figure, MTV have investigated, and even the sperm bank story doesn’t add up for this absurd premise.
Vince Vaughn in 'Delivery Man'
"Considering the probability of pregnancy using frozen sperm — 20 to 30 percent and the probability of successful pregnancy with a live birth v10 percent — it would take a minimum of 1,250 vials of sperm to 'make' 500 children," said Dr. Grace Centola, the past president of the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

David Wozniak may be a lazy, middle-aged slob now, but he certainly did enough in his younger years to get himself into a situation that no man could ever dream of happening to them. After donating a vial of sperm to a sperm bank some 20-plus years ago, he is visited by an official from the clinic who informs him that he has in fact managed to father a colossal 533 children. Unfortunately, a good percentage of those 'kids' are now taking legal action in a bid to discover the identity of their biological father, nicknamed Starbuck. His lawyer has managed to pick up an envelope of all their profiles, giving David a strict instruction not to open it. Curiosity overcomes him when he opens it and he suddenly finds himself overwhelmed with a desire to take care of every one of his offspring and help them in any way he can. However, with a sceptical girlfriend, an unsupportive best friend and a lawyer who thinks he should stay away, he has got so many tough decisions to make.
This hilarious and heartwarming movie is based on the recent French film 'Starbuck'. Both were directed and written by Ken Scott ('Sticky Fingers', 'The Rocket: The Legend of Rocket Richard') and it tells a tale of responsibility and the true meaning of parenthood. 'Delivery Man' will be released in the UK on January 10th 2014.
The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.
Ron Burgundy compares a Dodge Durango's horsepower to that of an actually horse before insulting it and challenging it to a staring contest in the new clip from upcoming 'Anchorman' sequel 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'.
This Wedding Crashers reunion has enough snappy dialog to keep us laughing even if the film itself feels like little more than a two-hour Google advert. Thankfully, Vaughn and Wilson are back on form after a number of flabby roles, and they keep the energy levels high enough to distract us from the fact that there's virtually nothing to either the character or the plot.
They play Billy and Nick, salesmen who are left unemployed when their company closes down. Nick finds a new job with his tattooed brother-in-law (Ferrell), but Billy talks him into ditching it for a summer internship at Google, where they join a mob of teen brainiacs in a battle for permanent jobs. Their ethnically diverse team of misfits (including O'Brien, Sircar and Raphael) is led by 23-year-old Lyle (Brener), and after a series of mishaps they begin to work together, surprising their aggressive rival (Minghella) and the intern programme director (Mandvi). Meanwhile, Nick flirts comically with Google exec Dana (Byrne).
This is a deeply lazy script that can't even be bothered to differentiate between the personalities of Billy and Nick, let alone anyone else on screen. Each person is defined by a couple of superficial characteristics, so there are no actual relationships between anyone. Billy and Nick aren't even allowed a hint of bromance. And it's simply insulting how the screenplay makes these two "old" men illiterate about both computers and culture (they've never heard of X-men?). Of course, they also teach the kids a lot about partying away from computer screens.
Continue reading: The Internship Review
Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind have now hit the eighties and things are a little different. The legendary San Diego news anchors are now embarking on a different project, as part of a 24 hour news channel, but now they have fresh competition in the form of a young, handsome and well-dressed fellow anchor. Ron continues to put himself in sticky situations, this time involving some awkward racism with his new girlfriend's family during a social occasion among many other things. Will their antics extend beyond their previous capers involving angry bears and mean bikers? Or will the eighties bring with it a more streetwise news bunch? We doubt the latter.
The sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' is set to hit our screens soon entitled 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'. We'll likely be seeing yet more hijinks from one of Hollywood's favourite comedy casts as they return following at massive $85 million gross from the original movie. Produced again by Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'), Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') also makes a return as director and co-writer alongside Will Ferrell. It is scheduled for release in the UK on December 20th 2013.
Ben Affleck has certainly scored some awards over the past year.
Ben Affleck was awarded with the Spike’s Tv ‘Guy of the Year Award’ on Saturday (aired last night). The ceremony took place in Culver City, California. Affleck was presented his antler shaped (nicknamed ‘mantler’) award by fellow Oscar winning actor and director, Clint Eastwood. This is one of many awards; Affleck has received this year including an Oscar for his film Argo.
The Awards were first held in 2007 and previous winners have included Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Mickey Rourke, Maek Wahlberg and Matt Damon. As you’d expect, the awards are hardly female friendly (there is an award named the ‘holy grail of hot’) yet many turned out for the event including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba.
The awards are hardly on par with the Oscars or a Golden Globes – there was a category in 2012 for ‘Hottest Zo(o)e(y)’. The nominations for this particular award were somewhat limited. However, the award’s lack of prestige did not prevent Affleck celebrating backstage with Snoop Dogg, Vince Vaughn and Jimmy Kimmel.
