Just Like Heaven (Reese Witherspoon as a spirit) wins the Daily Box Office for Friday.
  • Its performance was mediocre. In fact, it did less per screen than The Exorcism of Emily Rose, but amassed the greater total gross by being on more screens.
  • Lord of War (Nic Cage as an arms dealer)was third, Cry Wolf (teen slasher flick) fifth.
  • An Unfinished Life finished(Redford, Freeman, J-Lo) tenth in total revenues, but would be a more encouraging fourth if the films were to be ranked by the revenues per screen.

Remember when kazoos used to be simple little instruments? The Japanese thought that could be improved.

Fuck you. Show us some pussy Buffy, or get the fuck out. You're not fresh anymore.

Thought she was supposed to show a little T&A to jump start her career into better roles?

Actually, since she is Jewish, she's obeying the old joke about why Jews love to be prostitutes:

Why?

"Ya got it, ya sell it,
ya still got it!"

She's a pretty shrewd tease; she won't be 'taking it all off', no matter how much she'd like us to think.

Sounds like they're trying to make Bond more serious. Why? The Brosnan films made a ton of money. The last serious Bond film, "License to Kill," flopped, and I don't think it was because of Timothy Dalton, who was a good Bond. THe movie was just too gritty and realistic, and that's not what people want.

Also, I can't think of any 28 year old actors who have the stature to pull off playing Bond.

Looks like the Zellweger-Chesney split could get mighty ugly
  • "In California, where Zellweger filed, annulments are rare, seemingly by design, among the famous and non-famous. The state that invented the no-fault divorce is a stickler on annulments. 'You've got to prove your grounds,' Rabenn said. 'You've got to go to court.'"
  • In this case, Zellweger filed "fraud" as her grounds for annulment, and nobody has any idea what the hell that could mean, or what kind of fraud Chesney could be guilty of.
  • "Fraud is a very high standard. For a court to accept this for fraud, it's going to have to be a very egregious situation."
  • The stars will, of course, try to keep their secret, whatever it might be.

The only way I can see that she can win a "fraud" claim is if Chesney represented himself to her as a heterosexual and he isn't. Can anyone else think of another explanation?

Maybe he said he had a big cock and didn't.

 

This isn't quite as tough as kicking the shit out of a Great White, but it ranks up there pretty high. "OK, just have the trainer stitch up my dick so I can play."

Here's the trailer for Kinky Boots
  • "Charlie Price faces the impending shut down of the Northampton shoe factory that his family has owned and operated for generations. Just when he feels that all is lost, he has a chance encounter with Lola, a flamboyant transvestite cabaret star. Lola's desire for stylish, kinky boots for herself and her colleagues provides a glimmer of hope for the factory and its employees."
  • Yesssss! I have already reserved my tickets for this one. I may even fly to whatever dreary place they hold the premiere, because I just can't wait until it comes to a theater near me!

Four clips and a featurette from that must-see roller disco classic, Roll Bounce.
  • In the late '70s, when roller skating was a way of life, X (Bow Wow) and his pals ruled supreme. But when the doors of their local skating rink close, it marks the end of an era and the beginning of another that sees the boys venture into foreign territory -- uptown's Sweetwater Roller Rink, complete with its over-the-top skaters and beautiful girls. Through his preparation for the showdown of the season -- the Roller Jam skate off with the Sweetwater crew -- X manages to find himself and also help his dad (Chi McBride) get back on track.

Perv or not, Polanski used to be great. Now he's just doing costume dramas to impress the Academy.

"The facade that Firefox is the cure to the Internet Explorer security blues is quickly fading." In the past six months, there have been more vulnerabilities and exploits of Firefox than MSIE, despite the fact that MSIE is used by eight times as many people.

This is all because MS has hired people to hack Firefox to hold onto the lucrative browser market. They are in it with the One-Worlders and the Aliens, I tell you!
