Which Nicholas Sparks Films Are Worth Watching?

View Photo Gallery

Nicholas Sparks has created an empire from the hopeful yet tragic loves stories you read on vacation or watch after too many bottles of wine. Like Nancy Meyers, whose films always incorporate droolworthy decor, location is key. And Sparks’ films are almost exclusively set on the coasts of North or South Carolina–a nod to his adopted home of New Bern, NC. Over the years numerous titles have been adapted from breezy beach reads into sugar-coated love stories with a male and female lead much too beautiful to be of this Earth.

Bad Chemistry: The 10 Most Hilariously Unconvincing Movie Couples

View Photo Gallery

Movie couple chemistry is everything. A film could have an abominable script, be shot terribly, and have the dumbest trailer ever, but if we believe that the onscreen duo actually wants to rip each other’s clothes off, it’s a hit. Sadly, no amounting of perfect casting can predict whether or not a pairing will work. Who’s sexier than Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta Jones? And yet, in Oceans Twelve, they behaved like they were just meeting after a few awkward texts on Tinder. And what about Natalie Portman and Hayden Christiansen in the Star Wars series? Their relationship was supposed to be so epic that it begat Luke and Leia — but the duo was so sexless that you almost believed their kids came into the world via immaculate conception. And we won’t even get into the wasted beauty that was Beyonce and Idris Elba in Obsessed

Here, the ten terrible movie couples we love to hate.

Channing Tatum, Ian Somerhalder + More Hot Guys Holding Puppies

It’s been pseudo-scientifically proven over time that a dog of any size can make a handsome dude look even hotter. A dog is a man’s best friend, after all, and the juxtaposition between the fuzziness of said animal and the raw animal magnetism these fine stars exude on stage and screen. Maybe it’s the way in which they care for another living thing, and the hope that if they can be that sweet to a dog, then they’d totally sweep you off your feet if you ever met IRL. And remember to call your mother on her birthday… or something. Not that we’ve thought about it a lot. Really, we swear.

Magic Mike & More: Great Moments In Male Butt History

The great thing about butts is that everyone has one. Women have butts and men have butts, and even though the female derriere gets more attention in music and on movie posters, there have been many great moments in male butt history-and we’re not just talking about the movie Magic Mike.

Bikini Awards: Claudia Jordan Makes Her Case Against Channing Tatum

Claudia Jordan Channing Tatum

Here’s another surprise in the 2013 Bikini Awards: Claudia Jordan, onetime Miss Rhode Island USA, better known to us as a Deal or No Deal model and Celebrity Apprentice contestant, has more rabid fans than Adrianne Curry. The 40-year-old stunner won the Reality TV division with a whopping 52 percent of the votes. Here’s something not surprising: Channing Tatum, reigning Sexiest Man Alive, defeated all the other guys in the mankini division with 47 percent of the votes. Now which of these will advance to the next round?

Though Claudia didn’t advance past round 4 in both of her Apprentice seasons, she might have a good chance of continuing on here, since she’s been rallying her fans on Twitter herself. But we wouldn’t put it past Chan to flash us those Magic Mike abs, or maybe just a peek at baby Everly, to gain an edge.

Who’s your fave? Study those pics carefully and then cast your votes before the poll closes at 11 pm ET on August 20.

Don’t forget to vote in the other Round 2 competitions: Olivia Munn vs. Claudia Romani and Jennie Garth vs. Angela Simmons.
