There were mixed reviews for Broken Lizard's Club Dread (2004). I should point out that achieving 42% good reviews is quite positive for sophomoric comedies. This film is from the same group which did Super Troopers, and that movie received only 35% good reviews. There is a solid group of critics with no sense of humor who automatically pan every lowbrow comedy. There's Something About Mary, arguably the greatest comedy of the past 20 years, got only 57% good reviews from the so-called "cream of the crop" at Rotten Tomatoes.

President Bush backs a new TV Series, hopes that one of the boys gets to make it with Ginger or Mary Anne this time. Actually, in what would be a highly unusual action for a president, George W. Bush is apparently giving the White House seal of approval to a television series about Homeland Security. This leads me to suspect it will not have steamy NYPD Blue action.

You can't make up stuff better than this. U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown uses racist remarks to accuse the administration of racism! She called Secretary Roger Noriega a racist white man. He said he was Hispanic. She said "you all look alike to me"! Noriega, by the way, is only the Assistant Secretary of State, and was simply there to represent the policy of his bosses - the Secretary of State and the National Security Adviser, Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice.

Norwegian King is just one of the guys: "The average spectator walking around busy Miami Beach Marina this week, probably would not be able to make King Harald for royalty. He wears a faded red baseball cap from a past Antigua Race Week that says ''Sail fast; live slow.'' He laughs and jokes with American sailors in unaccented English." These people are probably the most beloved and down-to-earth monarchs in the world. Harald's father was famous for riding the public transportation. In modern times, Norway became an independent country in 1905, after centuries of Danish and Swedish hegemony, and has only had three kings. Harald's grandfather (Haakon, 1905-1957) ruled through two world wars and rallied the country from the UK during the German occupation. His father (Olav) was king from 1957-1991. I was living and working in Norway when he died. It was a "JFK experience". Like everyone else with an emotional link to the country, I can remember exactly where I was when I first heard about Olav's death.

Chloe Sevigny has been tapped to co-star in HBO's drama pilot 'Big Love,' playing one of a polygamist's three wives. Additionally, the actress has been cast opposite Ben Kingsley and Annette Bening in the indie feature "Mrs. Harris," and in Lars von Trier's "Manderlay. It doesn't sound like her on-screen BJ in The Brown Bunny hurt her career at all.

The reviews are absolutely brutal for Twisted Based on the early reviews, we're talkin' Gigli level, despite Ashley Judd, Samuel L. Jackson, and director Philip Kaufman. What the hell happened to Kaufman? This guy used to make some good movies.
