Ride Along Exclusive: Ice Cube Says There’s No Place For Kevin Hart In N.W.A

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are the perfect odd couple in Ride Along, which follows a bumbling wannabe police officer/gamer as he hangs with his girlfriend’s protective cop brother for a day to prove he’s worthy of her hand in marriage. Hilarity ensues (duh) and most of it stems from the on-screen chemistry of Hart and Cube, whom we should thank (along with the women of The Heat) for bringing back the buddy action-comedy in full force.

After Jack Ryan: Here Are The Film Franchises We Really Want To See Rebooted

View Photo Gallery

Every couple of years, when Hollywood runs out of fresh ideas it returns to the well of franchises that have proved to be hits. However, a few are in serious updating and, with the main stars aging, a fresh crop of actors to take over the series. However, we’re not suggesting that all of them follow the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit route and star from point zero. That’s been done before, multiple times (see: Batman, Superman).

Varsity Blues 15 Years Later: James Van Der Beek “Couldn’t Throw” + Other Things You Didn’t Know

View Photo Gallery

It’s hard to believe that 15 years ago today, Varsity Blues, a teen high school drama starring James Van Der Beek debuted in theaters. The first of a string of a 1999 MTV Films releases, the movie told the story of a small football town in Texas where losing wasn’t an option. Van Der Beek portrayed Jonathan Moxon, the intelligent yet rebellious second-string quarterback who had to step up when Lance Harbor (Paul Walker) was injured. His team included Billy Bob (Ron Lester), the sensitive offensive guard, Charlie Tweeder (Scott Caan), the rightfully-cocky wide receiver and Wendell Brown (Eliel Swinton), the talented running back. As we look back on the life we always wanted, Lester shares things you may have not known about the film, such as who was up for the Van Der Beek’s role.

Ride Along’s Ice Cube And Kevin Hart Pick Up A Pair Of Unusual Criminals

“This ain’t the prom limo, they going to jail,” Ice Cube’s James Payton tells Kevin Hart’s Ben Barber. Well, you could have fooled Best Week Ever’s Michelle Buteau and Girl Code’s Carly Aquilino as they partied it up in the back of the Ride Along squad car. Strangely, this is not an actual scene from the movie, which opens in theaters this Friday, January 17. If you ask us, these ladies should have cameos in ALL of the movies. But enjoy their brief moment of cinematic history right here, then head over to the VH1 Tumblr for behind-the-scenes photos of the girls’ high jinks on the set.

Curls On Film: The Most Epic Perms In Movie History

View Photo Gallery

Ah, the perm. A remnant of ’70s and ’80s “fashion” that we can be glad to have left behind. But have we really let go of the perm? With Bradley Cooper sporting an impressive man-perm in American Hustle recently, a nostalgia has been sparked for the admittedly stupid, but strangely endearing, hairstyle.

globes-moments-main

The 2014 Golden Globe Awards are all wrapped up, and we’re about ready to grab our own cocktails after spending the evening watching actors drink. But first, we decided we should probably help those of you who’ve been boozing it up all night remember what was ACTUALLY funny (not just beer goggles funny) about everyone’s favorite drunk awards show. Whether it was laughs scripted for hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, spontaneous live-show errors (sorry, Wolf of Wall Street girl we don’t know) or awesome victory speeches (Matthew McConaughey ftw), the Globes lived up to their reputation. Here we count down the 10 most hilarious moments. (Also, here are the best GIFs of the Golden Globes.)

What Taylor Kitsch Texted Mark Wahlberg + Other Reasons Women Should See Lone Survivor

Let us be clear: Lone Survivor is a serious war movie, a brutal look at the violence of combat in Afghanistan based on the tragic true story as told by Navy SEALs veteran Marcus Luttrell. But even if, like us, you’re not normally into war movies, this movie from director Peter Berg deserves your attention, for reasons both serious and completely NOT. Take, for instance, Mark Wahlberg’s complaint (in the video above) about what went down between this all-male cast on location in the mountains of New Mexico.

Awards season is kicking off this week, with the one-two punch of the People’s Choice Awards and the Golden Globes, and we are giddy with anticipation. And no, not to see our favorite movies and TV shows collect some hardware as their stars and creators thank their agents — c’mon, you know us better than that. We watch for those magical unscripted moments that happen thanks to someone pre-partying a little too hard, or, in the case of the Globes, hitting that free bubbly at the tables (Glenn Close GIF, we love you forever). It’s a magical thing that happens to stars big (Liz Taylor!) and small (aw, Lil Mama), at all kinds of kudosfests. Here we’re counting down our 10 favoritesssst munk droments:
