Who's seeing 'Red' this weekend?

As is the case with “The Incredible Hulk” and “Top Gun,” just because something was hot way back when doesn’t mean that it can’t experience a resurrection and hopefully once again kick some ass.

That’s more or less the premise behind “Red,” an action comedy starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren as retired CIA agents who get back in the game ("red" itself stands for "retired and extremely dangerous").

The reviews have averaged out to a solid “meh, not too bad," with critics finding it a passable film should you desire to see an action flick this weekend.

'Sesame Street' videos hit with adults as well

If we’d had the ability to tweet, Facebook “like” and otherwise share stuff we think is awesome online back in the ‘70s and ‘80s, no doubt classic "Sesame Street" clips like the “Pinball Number Count” would have gone viral like some of the “Street’s” latest segments.

Aside from the Katy Perry cleavage debacle (a video that made its Web rounds despite the fact that it won’t actually air on the children’s program), there have been a string of other videos passed around like lightning online, like Grover’s take on the now iconic Old Spice commercial “Smell like a Monster” and this week’s ode to rocking what you’ve got, “I Love My Hair.”

The Old Spice parody falls in the vein of some of “Sesame Street’s” other spoofs on more adult themes, like when HBO’s “True Blood” turned into “True Mud,” or when they did a riff on the AMC hit “Mad Men.”

HBO considering Tea Leoni style comedy

It looks like Tea Leoni is getting ready to follow in Carrie Bradshaw's well-heeled footsteps: The actress is in talks to star in a new fashion-based series for HBO.

Deadline.com reports that the cable network has designs on "Spring/Fall," a glitzy "Sex and the City"-esque comedy that follows the adventures of style-savvy Manhattanites.

Leoni - whose last TV gig was the '90s sitcom "The Naked Truth" - is producing the project and would play one half of a fashion partnership between two women with completely different approaches to career, family, and friendship.

Adding to the show's glam factor is filmmaker R.J. Cutler (director of last year's Vogue magazine documentary "The September Issue"), who has also signed on as a producer.

Déjà vu on 'Jersey Shore'

What’s up with The Situation?

Last week he was slapping Snooki across the face and trying to steal Vinny’s date, and this week he was disrespecting women - more so than usual - and preventing Pauly D from “getting it in.” Not cool, Sitch.

As the episode kicked off, Vinny gushed about his amazing new girl, Ramona, while Snooki and Ryder said their goodbyes. Snooki cried to JWoww, saying that Ryder made her realize how much she misses home. JWoww tried to cheer her up by suggesting they go tanning, but no such luck. Only two things could dry Snooki’s eyes at a time like this: Gorillas and juiceheads.
