Our first look at a trailer for Rick. "From best-selling children's author, Daniel Handler (aka "Lemony Snicket"), comes a morally reprehensible movie that's definitely not for children. It's a fairy tale of New York all about internet porn, carnivorous capitalism and cold-blooded murder, just in time for the holiday season. Meet Rick (Bill Pullman). Trapped in an upper management job that's paid him buckets of cash in exchange for his soul, he's dominated by a boss who's a third his age, adrift on a sea of corporate testosterone, brutalizing his employees every time he opens his mouth. His only connection to humanity is his daughter, Eve, who's growing up and drifting away from her dad, downing before-dinner cocktails and cruising older men on the internet. Like all of us, Rick has given the best years of his life to a company that couldn't care less, he's alienated from the people he loves, and he faces daily humiliation. And like all of us, he gets through the day by contemplating revenge on those he blames for his failed life. Unlike us, however, Rick not only has revenge's business card, he's been offered a promotional discount."

Are there ethnic slurs in 'Shark Tale'? Dreamworks Studio says no. DreamWorks defended its upcoming animated "Shark Tale" against mounting criticism from Italian-American groups who say the movie's gangster-like Shark characters foster ethnic stereotypes. A spokesman for the protesters, Vincent "Fat Vinny" Garagiola, said that DreamWorks better "fix da fuckin' problem". He added, "if they like underwater adventure so fuckin' much, maybe they'd like to meet Luca Brazzi"

The Australian questions Viagra's use of a tiger as their commercial spokesman for virility.
  • They actually suggest replacing the tiger with Kirk's dik-dik. I didn't make that up.
  • You mean there really is a Kirk's dik-dik which is not attached to William Shatner?
  • "According to one website devoted to tiger mating habits, males of the species are unfaithful pedophiles whose flirtation rituals involve domestic violence and spraying large quantities of anal gland excretions and urine."
  • Oh, sorry, no. That was actually a website about the mating habits of Catholic priests.

JoBlo asks: "Is Paul Bettany set to replace Hugh Grant as the reigning British male romantic comedy lead? " Well, I'm thinking it would be better if the top comedy star were actually funny, but what do I know? Hugh Grant may be a douchebag, but he does have some gift for comedy. From what I've seen of Bettany, he's about as funny as Dick Cheney.
