CINEMA’S GOLDEN AGE: You’re My Boy, Ricky Bobby!

by

rickybobby.jpg1. The trailer alone had more funny in it than every comedy Hollywood has crapped out so far this year (except for Little Man – that was HILARIOUS!), so this isn’t particularly surprising. And people really, really love watching Will Ferrell yell and scream – $47 million

2. I guess Babe, Chicken Run and Racing Stripes just couldn’t feed America’s insatiable appetite for animated manure$16 million

3. Man, do you guys have any idea what a person can do with eleventy bajillion dollars? Cause there are a couple dudes at Disney who would really love to know – $11 million

4. Seeing that Miami Vice had dropped three places after last week’s #1 opening, Don Johnson threw down his morning paper, punched his maid in the face, and spent the rest of the day leaving Colin Farrell nasty voice messages about what happens when you try to f*ck over Don Johnson – $9.7 million

5. This movie is almost as scary as the fact that M. Night Shamalamadingdong thinks he’s still an important filmmaker – $8.8 million

  • Samuel L. Jackson‘s follow-up movie to Snakes on a Plane is called Black Snake Moan. Jackson plays a musician who cures a young nymphomaniac, played by Christina Ricci, of her addiction. While producers of BSM won’t admit to using the publicity from Jackon’s other snake movie to boost ticket sales, it’s kind of odd that the movie’s tagline is “Get my motherf***in’ snake out your motherf***in’ brain, bitch!”
  • The New York Times gives a lesson in Celebrity Gay Denial 101: 1. Say you’re not. 2. Laugh it off. 3. Come out on the cover of People.
  • Is Pamela Anderson already pregnant? You know her breasts are gonna be soooo jealous when the new globe growing out of her body starts getting all the attention.
  • Speaking of which, is Britney Spears pregnant with a baby girl? And, if so, do they make thong underwear for fetuses?
  • Patrick Swayze, clearly outraged by the sentiments of Rob Schneider, stands by his old buddy Mel Gibson and says he’s a good man. We see this for what it really is: A clever ruse to get Gibson to co-star in Road House 2.
  • Mary-Kate Olsen is smiling! Looks like somebody drank the blood of orphans this weekend!

ICYMI: Britney’s Home Movies Are Abstract Art

by

If you gathered up Spike Jonze, Charlie Kaufman, Michel Gondry, Matthew Barney, John Waters and Salvador Dali, fed them large doses of psychedelic mushrooms, strapped video equipment to each of them, and sent the entire group into a NASCAR race, you’d still never be able to capture video footage as absolutely bizarre and completely surreal as this 3-minute clip of Britney Spears casually chatting/burping about her fears and frustrations:

Carmen Electra Whores For Pills Less Literally

by

carmenbefore.jpg

After making a name for herself as a rite of sexual passage for every hair metal has-been with a hit song between 1983 and 1989, Carmen Electra is using her pseudo-celebrity sex appeal for a much greater purpose: selling “the world’s first weight loss beauty pill”. So if any of you ladies have low self-esteem, feel fat and ugly, and are willing to do whatever is necessary to conform to the unrealistic expections society has placed on your appearance, there are now drugs you can buy that will magically transform you into a sultry sex object for eyeliner-wearing unemployed rockstars, just like Carmen Electra! This miracle drug is available for $49.99 a bottle, and can be found right next to Anna Nicole’s TrimSpa at any store selling useless products that don’t work. Side effects may include nausea, night terrors, mental retardation, manic depression, anorexia, bulimia, nymphomania, syphillis, herpes, loss of dignity and respect, low self-esteem, sex tape appearances, constant burning sensations, and ending up in a ridiculous marriage to some guy with lots of tattoos whose entire vocabulary consists of the words “dude”, “party” and “rock”. But you could also enjoy the same successul results of the product’s very first customer – Pamela Anderson Lee Rock!

Project Runway: Loose Threads

by

GUNN2.JPGIt’s Friday, and it’s summer, and you know what that means: A news update for the most enjoyable summertime show, Project Runway!

  • The recently disqualified Keith Michael* insists that just because he happen to have some illegal instructional design booklets, and just because he happen to think he’s better than Gandhi, does not mean that he is a dirty, dirty liar.
  • Michael Slezak at Entertainment Weekly claims to be the biggest Project Runway fan. (Cut to me removing my Tim Gunn facemask Scooby Doo-style and looking pissed.) But the man does bring up a good point: ENOUGH WITH THE GROUP CHALLENGES!
  • Wednesday night’s grande scandale pulled in Bravo’s biggest ratings in history. It was also the most watched basic cable show of the night, beating out PAX’s Supermarket Sweep and TV One’s 227 rerun. David Ruprecht will have his revenge, Bravo.
  • Tim Gunn compares our favorite show to cilantro. Speaking of which, you’ve got a piece of Project Runway in your teeth… no, higher… little lower… look, just go to the bathroom, you’re nauseating me.

*Ed. Note: The nickname assigned to Keith a few weeks back, “Jude Kinnear” (a reference to his resemblance to Jude Law and Greg Kinnear) has been stricken from the record. Why? Because she’s a real person.
