The Reviews are “Eh” For Da Vinci Code, Over the Hedge

by

dav.jpgTwo big movies are premiering this week: Over the Hedge and The Da Vinci Code. Both have big star power(Tom Hanks, Steve Carell) and affiliations with powerful rulers(The Pope, WalMart). The only difference is that one challenges the fundamental tenets of Christianity and the other deals with a raccoon on a lawn. Nevertheless, both films are getting equally tepid reviews. Can you guess which review belongs with which movie?

“a rather narrowly conceived tale”
“There was too much music”
“feels a bit old-hat”

ICYMI: Katharine Goes Over The Rainbow

by

So everybody’s talking about Katharine McPhee’s amazing performance of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” last night. Was it enough to keep her on the show another week? Watch this slideshow with the audio (no video = YouTube not taking it down) and let me know what you think.

I’m pulling for Katharine all the way. I love this chick– and NOT just because she looks like Victoria Beckham in a fat suit.

It’s May 17th; What’s up?

by

tv set3.jpgDoes anybody else find it a little messed up that the couples on The Amazing Race travel through 10 countries and rack up 59,000 miles to win $1 million? The idiots on Deal or No Deal can win the same amount just by saying (wait for) Deal or No Deal. CBS really makes you work for your money.

Well, tonight one lucky couple will walk away with the money as The Amazing Race 9 comes to a close. Other shows ending their season tonight: Bones, Top Model, Law & Order, CSI: NY, and Invasion. Good stuff, but you’re probably going to be too busy checking to see who gets kicked off American Idol (please let it be Taylor.) So what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!

SIZZLER: Britney’s a Gangsta Mom

by

britbrit.jpgYes Britney almost killed her baby the other day when she strapped him into her convertible in a caseat facing the wrong direction. But we swear, there’s a reasonable explanation for this: Britney’s recording a rap album. The pop star reportedly signed on 50 Cent’s producer Jonathan “JR” Rotem to record an album that reveals a whole new side of Britney, a harder side. She’s not a Slave 4 U anymore, and the drive she took with Sean P. the other day proved it. She may not have grown up on the streets of Compton like The Game, or been riddled with bullets like 50, but based on the way she’s been treating her son, she may just be a cold-blooded killa.

Is Diva Beef Having the Best Week Ever?

by

divafeuds.JPGWell, first of all the Internet was set aflame by today’s earlier report that Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan might have – gasp! – said nasty things to each other at some Hollywood nightclub. Nicole Richie is still talking smack about her ex-friend. Mandy Moore calls Wilmer a lying creep. Now we have this story suggesting that Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera aren’t super BFF? What is the world coming to when uber-famous, over-blown diva starlets can’t play nice with each other? Didn’t these girls learn anything from Tupac and Biggie? How far does this East Coast/West Coast style beefing have to go before somebody’s jewel-encrusted Blackberry REALLY gets hurt?

Your catfights are probably having the Best Week Ever. Now please, ladies – stop the violence!

PROPPED: Doherty Squirts Blood on MTV

by

pete.jpg
And today in Pete Doherty news: the Babyshambles rocker squirted a syringe full of blood all over an MTV camera crew after injecting himself chock full o’ heroin. Even though we Viacom minions are a sturdy bunch, the stint forced the camera crew to sterilize thousands of pounds of equipment. Even Doherty’s bandmates took offense to Pete’s antics, apologizing to MTV for his behavior. Props to jim for dropping off today’s requisite Doherty story, but we think we liked Pete better yesterday, when he was a woman.

If you live in the UK, not only do you get free healthcare, you also get to watch the footage of Pete’s blood squirt here on MTV UK.
