Your belly is stuffed. Presents are unwrapped. Family conversation is dwindling. Is there a better idea than going to your local cinema? The movie studios don’t think so, as they’re unleashing a gluttonous amount of flicks on December 25th. Can’t decide between fantastical Ben Button or the cute pooch named Marley? Here are our picks for the top five films to consume while digesting and unwinding after the holiday festivities:
5. Bedtime Stories: Need to get the kiddies out of the house? Have an affinity for animated wide-eyed guinea pigs? Then this Adam Sandler a la Disney pic may be for you. Not safe for viewing sans children under 13.

1. Battle of the Sexes: The guys and girls compete against one another to see who is superior. (Blow-up dolls figure prominently into resolving this age-old question, obviously.)
2. Girls are better. So boys are banished to a faux “Trailer Park.”
3. Girls are rewarded with a sexy pool party, aka quality time spent with their clothing off.

7. Another make out session inspired by that make out session occurs between Vikki and Rebekah.
8. Once that’s out of the way, Rebekah tells Vikki she’d rather be “besties.”
9. Contestants compete in a stamina challenge and fools get injured.
10. Trevor makes an astute observation: “It makes me think that I have a double shot at love here.” Welcome to the show Trevor, the show that you’ve been on for three episodes now. Welcome.
11. Testosterone rules during elimination, fists are thrown and tears are shed.

After a birthday celebration at LAX in Las Vegas on Friday and a second celebration with a cake in the lobby of the Luxor hotel, it seemed as though Holly Madison‘s joint birthday party with illusionist boyfriend Criss Angel couldn’t get any better. When they got home however, Criss surprised Holly with a ring!
“It’s a diamond ring shaped like her favorite flower,” Criss said. “When we were at Disneyland, she made me a paper ring, and I wore it on the fourth finger of my right hand. She had no idea I was getting her one to match,” Criss shared.
Although Holly has made it very clear that she is hoping for a diamond ring, it is not THAT kind of ring, Criss emphasizes.
“Everybody is going to think the ring is an engagement ring when they see it. Don’t let all the rumors start. This is a beautiful piece of jewelry for her birthday, but when I do get engaged, I’d have a much bigger ring that would really be bank-busting expensive,” Criss says.

Although Lance Armstrong has had romances with high profile hotties like Kate Hudson, Sheryl Crow, and Mary-Kate Olsen, the seven time Tour d’ France winner has chosen a much more low key lady for his babymama.
His current girlfriend Anna Hansen, with whom he is expecting a baby, is no red carpet regular. Anna is a Program Manager and Recruiter for First Descents, which provides whitewater kayaking and other outdoor adventure experiences to promote emotional, psychological, and physical healing for young adults with cancer. Anna, an avid mountainbiker and snowboarder, hails from Vail, Colorado. She has a degree in biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder, has been a volunteer at the Children’s Hospital in Denver and serves on the board of directors for camp Wapiyapi, a foundation providing hope and support for families with childhood cancer. Lance and Anna began quietly dating in July, when they met through charity work. Check out our gallery of Lance’s ladies of the past! [Source: First Descents, Photo: First Descents, Getty Images]
Ricky Martin spent his childhood in Menudo before making a name for himself as a pop star in the late ’90s. Will Oldham spent his childhood in movies like Matewan before making a name for himself as an indie rock star in the late ’90s. Both singers were born on December 24th, but which one is older?
Lance Armstrong is going to be a father again. He and his girlfriend, Anna Hansen, are expecting a child.
“Anna and I are thrilled to confirm that we are expecting in June and our families are ecstatic and grateful,” a rep for Lance confirmed.
Lance already has three children with ex-wife Kristen Richards, who were conceived with sperm Lance had banked before he underwent chemotherapy for cancer. [Source: LA Times; Photo: Getty Images]
Paris Hilton just wants her jewelry back. Of the burglar who broke into her house and stole $2 million in jewels and sentimental items, Paris says, “They just have to anonymously have a taxi drop it off in my front gate in a box with my jewelry and everything and they won’t get in trouble.”
Paris thinks the robbery was definitely an inside job. “I think whoever did this, definitely has been there before,” the heiress says. She also reveals they already have an idea of who may be the culprit. “We have some suspects that I’m thinking of,” she says.
Early Friday morning, when Paris was out on the town, nearly $2 million in jewels and sentimental items were stolen from her Hollywood Hills home. The thief was captured on surveillance cameras, but was wearing a black hoodie, and at this time has not been caught.
Paris has upped her security drastically since the burglary. “No one is going to be coming into my house,” Paris warns. [Source: E! News; Photo: Getty Images]
