The premise behind Paramount's "Dinner for Schmucks," which involves a businessman bringing a socially inept companion to a company dinner in hopes of winning the “I brought the biggest loser" contest, sounds like it rides the line between clever and tasteless.
Yet plot worries aside, “Dinner” also has Paul Rudd and Steve Carell, who tend to be worth the gamble, and according to one reviewer they may be the movie’s saving grace.
The Washington Post assures moviegoers that, despite the offensive Yiddish word in the film’s title, “this comedy of humiliation…isn’t nearly as off-putting as it might have been,” with “Rudd and Carell bringing out its most toothsome delights.”
Director Zack Snyder usually delivers comic book-based action, most memorably in the testosterone-fueled box office hit "300."
This time he's gone the opposite route with the all-female action movie "Sucker Punch," starring Emily Browning ("Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events"), Vanessa Hudgens and Jena Malone ("Saved!").
Former "Roseanne" star Sara Gilbert is returning to TV as one of the celebrity mothers on the panel of the new fall daytime chat show “The Talk.”
What sets her apart from the other women, however, is that Gilbert’s kids have two mommies.
While promoting the new show at a Television Critics Association press event in L.A. on Wednesday, Gilbert, who has a son and daughter with her TV producer partner Allison Adler, confirmed that she is a lesbian.
Legendary author Anne Rice has announced that she’s quitting Christianity.
The “Interview with a Vampire” author, who wrote a book about her spirituality titled "Called Out of Darkness: A Spiritual Confession" in 2008, said Wednesday that she refuses to be “anti-gay,” “anti-feminist," “anti-science” and “anti-Democrat.”
Rice wrote, “For those who care, and I understand if you don't: Today I quit being a Christian ... It's simply impossible for me to ‘belong’ to this quarrelsome, hostile, disputatious, and deservedly infamous group. For ten years, I've tried. I've failed. I'm an outsider. My conscience will allow nothing else.”
Jennifer Aniston wasn't the only "Friends" star who gave a lot of attention to her tresses - Matt LeBlanc has revealed that he dyed his hair dark all 10 seasons.
At a Television Critics' Panel in Beverly Hills for his upcoming Showtime series "Episodes," the now silver-haired 43-year-old, who played actor Joey Tribbiani on the '90s sitcom, said, "I dyed my hair the whole time on Friends."
Once the hit show went off the air, however, he stopped hitting the bottle. "I just was sick of doing it," LeBlanc said of his decision to stop darkening his do.
If "Sister, Sister's" Roger Evans was real, we know he’d be just devastated: Tamera Mowry, 32, who was part of the sitcom duo, is engaged to Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, 38.

"We love Adam and love him being a part of our family. He is a wonderful person and has a wonderful heart,” her parents said in a statement.
According to Mowry’s rep, Adam proposed in Venice, Italy, and Mowry is "beyond thrilled and feels so blessed to have him in her life.”
The actress added, “Not only is he my love, but also my best friend."
