Feelin’ Hot Hot Hot! 15 Movies That Take Place In A Heat Wave

15 Movies With Heatwaves

Here on the East Coast, the Smash Mouth cut “Walking on the Sun” has been our personal anthem for the past week. Yes, it is HOT. Summer in the city (or anywhere) can be pretty grueling, especially when sweaty shirtless guys get shoved up against us on a crowded subway. If you can’t stand the heat, it seems like the best method is to just stay in a dark, air-conditioned room and watch movies!

30 Oscar Winners Who Have Also Been Nominated For Razzies


Do your movies keep filling up the direct-to-DVD dollar bin? Do they often complete the phrase “the worst film since…”? Do they make less money than we did that time we went to a Coinstar? Well, don’t let that get you down, because you could still be in the running for Oscar glory! Every year, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation names the most terrible films and performances of the year. Sure, it’s gotta hurt to be named the absolute worst of Hollywood, but just know that you’re in surprisingly good company. Check out the gallery below to see some Oscar winners who have also been up for a Razzie!

The Situation Wants To Be The Next De Niro. Or The Rock

Not content with merely being a a stomach flashing reality tycoon, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino wants a chance to flex his acting muscles, which he seems to think are as big as his biceps. In fact, he wants to follow in the footsteps of great thespians like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio…and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Let’s aim for The Rock and see what happens, Mike. To be fair, he does have some similarities with this list of masters. He shares the Italian heritage with Rob, Al and Leo, and both The Sitch and The Rock are known for being shirtless. Plus they both have “The” in their names. He’ll be a natural!

He recently opened up to In Touch Online about his next career move. “Obviously, I look up to De Niro and Pacino, and for someone who’s closer in age Leo [DiCaprio] — I’d eventually like to make great movies someday,” told “But I’m trying to go in a trajectory similar to ‘The Rock,’ [Dwayne Johnson], who took his bold personality and phrases from the WWE into film.”  We’re not sure if you can jump from the Rock track to the De Niro track, but Mike’s sure gonna try! He’s making his acting debut with a cameo in the upcoming Three Stooges remake. Maybe someday he’ll be trading those vodka bottles for Oscars.

TONY Awards Red Carpet: The Older Ladies Do It Better

What was in the water when these ladies were growing up? ‘Cause we’ll have some! The 2011 TONY Awards took place yesterday at the Beacon Theatre in New York City and we’re in awe of the slew of all the “older” actresses that walked the carpet. We’re not being derogatory about age at all. We genuinely think that the so called young Hollywood lot could learn a thing or two from ladies like Edie Falco (aged 47), Ellen Barkin (57), Brooke Shields (46) and Marg Helgenberger (52) because they looked incredible. Christie Brinkley looked pretty damn fine too, but we didn’t like the strapless blue gown she wore. And God Bless her soul, we love you Whoopi Goldberg, but what the hell were you wearing? She had some bizarre hat and an outfit that looked like it was made from cheap curtains on, which you’ll able to see in our gallery below.

A word about the gentlemen during the evening. Could Neil Patrick Harris (he was the host of the show) and partner David Burtka get any more handsome? Al Pacino could have taken a couple of styling tips considering he wore a weird headband, but his girlfriend, gorgeous Lucila Sola (who is 40 years younger than him) didn’t seem to mind. Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Rock, Matthew Broderick, Don Cheadle all suited up too, so take a look at the pictures and tell us what you think.

Al Pacino Joins, Adds Instant Credibility To Gotti Biopic

We hope this doesn’t earn us a severed horse head in our bed (we just got new sheets from Ikea) but up until today we thought Linday Lohan’s Gotti: Three Generations movie was sort of…not going to happen. No offense to Lilo! It’s just that after months of hearing about how she was going to play Deep Throat‘s Linda Lovelace or Sharon Tate, we’ve learn not to get our hopes up that any film Lindsay is attached to will every actually get to see the light of day. Now that Al Pacino’s Gotti biopic role is confirmed, however, we’re going to have to reconsider our assumption that Lindsay’s involvement is the kiss of death.

Pacino will play Gambino crime boss Neil Dellacroce, joining Lohan, John Travolta, Joe Pesci and Kelly Preston in the gangster flick. The movie is set to starting filming in early 2012, and we can only hope it’ll be less of a mess than Lohan’s more recent projects such as I Know Who Killed Me. Unless Lindsay drops out, then the movie will immediately win Best Picture in 2013.

Katie Holmes Movie Bombs At Sundance

At the Sundance Film Festival, two things occur annually. One, celebrities bust out their most stylish and furry cold-weather gear, and two, it’s where independent films go to find an audience and a distributor. Unfortunately, not every film that appears at the festival is stellar, and it looks like we can confirm that there’s at least one flop to come out of Sundance so far. The Son Of No One, a film starring the power trio of Katie Holmes, Al Pacino and Tracy Morgan (in a dramatic role!), prompted several distributors to walk out before the film had ended and — this is so sad — only one person reportedly applauded when the film ended. (Do you want to bet it was Tom Cruise?)

The film is a crime drama and also stars Channing Tatum, Juliette Binoche and Ray Liotta. Not a bad cast, so now we’re actually kind of intrigued to see just how bad it is.

Guess Who This Hirsute Actor Is?

It’s Al Pacino! If you recognized him, we’re impressed, because we couldn’t figure out who the hell he was. Pacino’s shooting Jack and Jill in L.A along with Adam Sandler, David Spade andKatie Holmes. There’s not much information out there yet, but it’s a modern day twist of the old rhyme, set to release later on this year. We’re curious to see where Pacino fits into all of this, especially looking as he is. Apparently, Sandler’s playing both the parts of the twin brother and sister – Jack and Jill! We’re intrigued by Spade’s role as well, considering what we saw him dressed like. A truly hilarious un-missable photo of David in DRAG after the jump… Read more…

Who Took Home Trophies At The 2011 Golden Globes (And What Was Up With Nat Port’s Laugh)?

natport-clairedanes

Did you forget to watch the 2011 Golden Globes this evening? Well, aside from missing out on Ricky Gervais committing career hara kiri in front of an audience filled with Hollywood’s biggest power players, you missed a whole bunch of acceptance speeches with varying levels of grace and aplomb.

Before we get into the tonight’s full list of winners, we would be remiss if we didn’t call attention to Natalie Portman’s bizarre laugh. As TheFABLife buddy Molly Lambert over at This Recording noted on Twitter, Portman’s guttural guffaw sounded a lot like Charlene Yi in Knocked Up. Practice your laugh game before the Oscars, girl!

And now, for the winners…

Zach Braff And Fellow Thespians Celebrate The Public Theater

Just  the other day, we were thinking how it really takes a special person to be able to pull off a fedora. On some people, the hats look fresh, summery and cool. On others, they’re just kinda douchey. Maybe we have an irrational hate because Scrubs got so effing bad these past couple years, but we’re thinking that the combination of Zach Braff, his hat, his sunglasses and his date’s annoying forehead-headband are in the douchey camp.

Braff and his girlfriend, model Taylor Bagley, were at the Public Theater Gala along with a who’s who of theater-types, including Al Pacino, Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber and David Schwimmer. Schwimmer, by the by, debuted some new bangs that are somewhat Bieber-esque but still better than Ross Geller’s gelmet head  that so haunted us during Friends. Check out all the ac-TORs in attendance in the gallery below.
