Have fun! Don’t Cheat! Cheating is bad mmmkay?

Just one more thing… if you ever wondered what Harry Potter in “Da’ Hood” might look like…. WATCH THIS!!

Saving Grace …. ?

Try more like Saving My Ass, from ever watching that again. Okay, okay, that might not be all that fair. That may have been a little harsh. I love Holly Hunter. I do. I think she could stand to eat a sandwich, and pack on a few pounds like normal a human being, instead of suffering from the Olsen Syndrome, but that’s neither here nor there when it comes to her acting capabilities. Holly Hunter has graced the big screen in several fantastic roles such as these. I also find it amazing that someone who never watches television is now the leading role of this new dramatic series on TNT.

However, Saving Grace, is not my bag. Not. Even. A. Little.

Okay, okay, so that’s not really true either. The detective aspect is hot. The over sexed, stereotypical drunk (as in slugging Jack Daniels straight from the bottle) yet manages to stay a brilliant detective. The single member of the police force that can crack a case with the smallest piece of evidence, and stay awake for days, has not been done to death, by a women.

But…why? Did they have to ruin it all? With that angel, sent from G-d above. Not just any angel either. No. They decided on an aging, homeless looking, tobacco chewing angel. I am guessing that was an effort to appease the “bible belt” target audience?

And, what exactly is so wrong with her character that she needs to be granted one last chance to redeem herself, pa-leeze. So she drinks too much and has way too much sex. On the flip side, she’s a great Aunt, and catches the real criminals that roam the streets. Oh wait, there was that scene when she did run over that pedestrian in the middle of the road while driving drunk, rendering him dead. Oh, I get it. She needs to be saved to get into heaven. Right?

Yeah, I am all for religion, if that’s what gets you through your day. I am all for g-d and heaven and rainbows and unicorns, but I don’t want to watch a television show about it. This is a PASS for me.

HairSpray The Movie

Normally we don’t “do movies” over here, but when one of the stars from Welcome Back Kotter lands on the silver screen, we must take notice and at least mention such news. That’s right…Vinnie Barbarino otherwise known as John Travolta, gets raves reviews for his role as Edna Turnblad in HairSpray, The Movie.

How did one of the sexiest leading men feel about dressing up as Edna Turnblad? In his own words:

“I can say being Edna was fun, but becoming Edna was not fun,” says Travolta. “I loved the effect the look had on people when they would see me on set as Edna, but I did not love the process involving the prosthetics and the fat suit. It was very uncomfortable and very hot. It was like wearing seven layers of very uncomfortable clothing, and I remember thinking I would never want to be a woman if that was the case.”

[Like singing to the choir. If only he really knew what it took to actually dress up like a woman every day.]

Will you watch it? Have you watched it? If so, please let us know your review in the comments!

Other excellent movies Travolta has starred in over the years:

Saturday Night Fever”, “Urban Cowboy”, “Carrie” and “Blowout.” He’s was nominated for an Academy Award for his riveting performance of a hit-man in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his delivery – the ultra cool Chili Palmer, in “Get Shorty.”

I Now Pronounce You Chuck, And Larry.

I just love it when two of my favorite comedic TV stars land on the big screen! It’s guaranteed to be worth that second mortgage I will need to finance the purchase of movie theater tickets. I don’t expect these two will disappoint!

Kevin James and Adam Sandler star in this summer’s comedy: I Now Pronounce You Chuck, And Larry. (Opening Nation-Wide, this Friday July 20th 2007.)

Plot:
Ladies’ man, Chuck Levine (Adam Sandler) and single father Larry Valentine (Kevin James) are
New York firefighters and best friends. They have to pretend to be gay partners when Larry has problems with his pension, when trying to name his kids as the beneficiaries to his life insurance policy. Chuck offers to lend a helping hand. (In marriage!) Since they have to please an over eager bureaucrat, the two men must prove that they’re actually homosexuals so that the policy doesn’t become void. When the city questions the legitimacy of the couples sexuality, they hire a smoking hot lawyer (Jessica Biel) to try to help them get around a more than nosey city investigator (Steve Buscemi).
