Jared "Gay as a goose" Leto is not quite as gay today as he was yesterday. He's only around merganser level.

The Trailer from The Namesake
  • "THE NAMESAKE is the story of the Ganguli family whose move from Calcutta to New York evokes a lifelong balancing act to meld to a new world without forgetting the old. Paradoxically, their son Gogol is torn between finding his own unique identity without losing his heritage. Even Gogol's name represents the family's journey into the unknown"

Box Office results for Cannes Film Festival Palme D'Or winners
  • Interesting chart. Only two of the winners have opened in more than 800 theaters. (Although a third film, Apocalypse Now, also became a hit, and a fourth, The Pianist, eventually reached 800 screens and won some Oscars along with commercial respectability.

Weekend Box Office Results, May 26-29
  • The big news, of course, is that X-Men Three broke the Memorial Day weekend record by a country mile. The previous record was $90 million and X-Men grossed $120 million.
  • Despite that phenomenal performance, the box office was only about even with last year (up 1%).
  • DaVinci was the biggest loser among the carry-overs, dropping 56% from the previous weekend, but that was within its predicted range.

Drought order leaves British clowns high and dry.
  • Britain's temporary water regulations forbid non-essential use of water - and the Water Lord is not kidding around. Clowns who drench each other with lapel flowers or seltzer bottles or buckets had better find an alternate source of humor!
  • "The water board has had a complete sense of humour failure," said Zippo the Clown.

Next week's movie (it's the only new wide release, and will be on 3000+ screens): The Break-Up - NO positive reviews. Vince Vaughn's hot streak is over. The general consensus is that this comedy could not be any worse if it starred Carrot Top and Jeff Fahey.
  • Hollywood Reporter: "Audiences expecting a good time will instead be rewarded with wildly unsympathetic lead characters and uncomfortably long stretches without a laugh in sight."
  • Variety: "... painfully awkward and often not the least bit funny."
  • Levy: "crappy and unfunny comedy"
