Jennifer Aniston Is A Bad Girl & Goes Topless In 'Horrible Bosses' (Watch Trailer)

May 12th, 2011 7:00pm EDT
Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston has given up her good-girl image for her latest film, Horrible Bosses, and plays the role of a sex-crazed dentist who ruthlessly harasses her dental assistant, played by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Charlie Day.

America's sweetheart prances around in sexy lingerie & garters in one scene - suggestively eating a banana, licking an ice pop, and then seductively wrapping her lips around a hot dog.

The former Friends star reportedly shot a nude scene for the film as well, but that footage may not make it into the final cut of the movie.

Review: Seth Rogen Steals Scenes With Caustic Sarcasm In 'Paul'

March 18th, 2011 12:38pm EDT
Paul
If E.T. spent enough time on Earth adapting to our language and customs, he probably would have become a wisecracking rebel just like Paul, the title character in director Greg Mottola’s latest buddy comedy. This alien with attitude, voiced by the gravelly Seth Rogen, steals scenes with his caustic sarcasm, penchant for practical jokes, and his gross personal habits. Paul is neither naive nor innocent, but his maturity or lack thereof is what makes him so hilarious.

While Rogen is humorous in the film, it helps that Brits Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pen the screenplay for “Paul.” The two...

Hopelessly neurotic and unrepentantly narcissistic, he gets no joy out of life except for the time he spends with his best friend Kassie (Jennifer Aniston). However, despite the fact that Wally pines to be more than just friends with Kassie, she isn't convinced they'd make a good couple. When Kassi...

Jennifer Aniston Flick 'The Switch' Is A Box Office Flop

August 23rd, 2010 8:26am EDT
The Switch
Jennifer Aniston's new sperm donor comedy has flopped at the box office, despite the actress' massive publicity campaign and her spat with newsman Bill O' Reilly.

O'Reilly took issue with comments Aniston made about wannabe mums seeking out donors, making her movie "The Switch" a big talking point - but even that wasn't enough to lure in film fans.

The movie, which co-stars Jason Bateman, opened with a disappointing $8.1 million and didn't even make the top five. It landed in eighth spot behind the debuts of "Twilight" spoof "Vampires Suck," "Lottery Ticket" and "Piranha 3D."

Oops! Jennifer Aniston Says 'Retard' On Regis & Kelly (Video)

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is under attack from a disability group for using the word "retard" in a TV interview.

The actress was talking about dressing up as her heroine Barbra Streisand for the upcoming issue of Harper's Bazaar on "Live with Regis and Kelly" on Thursday when she made the slip-up.

She said, "I play dress up. I do it for a living - like a retard!"

The off-hand remark has upset officials at The Arc, a non-profit advocate for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and CEO Pete Burns has taken aim at Aniston.

He tells UsMagazine.com, "It was extraordinarily offensiv...

Can Jennifer Aniston Redeem Herself With 'The Switch'?

This weekend “The Switch,” starring Jennifer Aniston, will open in theaters and if early reviews are an indicator, Aniston has yet another flop on her hands. Aniston, who was once a promising leading lady, has become a punch line for moviegoers who are as likely to expect good movies from her as they are a decent stand-up act from Carrot Top.

There was a time when Hollywood and fans expected great things from Aniston who was riding high from the success of “Friends.” Aniston’s only real quality films have been the few independent movies she did early in her career. Without argument, “The G...

Fashion Fail: Juliette Lewis' Blue Hair And Messy Dress

Juliette Lewis attended "The Switch" premiere in Hollywood on Monday with blue hair. Is she channeling Katy Perry? And what's up with the dress? She looks like an electrician was sticking used pieces of electrical tape to her. What do you think?

Juliette stars in the movie with her new gal pal Jennifer Aniston. And in case you forgot, they are both exes of Brad Pitt.

However, Juliette insists they two didn't talk about him. She explained: "There's an obvious history we share but while we didn't share stories about Brad, we did have an instant connection and mutual affection. I love her. F...

Hot Legs: Jennifer Aniston At The Premiere Of Her New Film, 'The Switch'

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston was simply stylish at "The Switch" premiere in Hollywood on Monday. She showed off her sexy legs in a black and beige strapless little number.

In the upcoming film Jen plays an unmarried woman who chooses artificial insemination to have children. She has defended single women who opt to use a sperm donor to have a child, insisting there's nothing wrong with raising a family alone.

Political pundit Bill O'Reilly branded her "destructive to our society" for praising artificial insemination. Aniston responded, "Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two par...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Nanny McPhee Returns,' 'Piranha 3D' & More

August 16th, 2010 9:36am EDT
Nanny McPhee
Comparing last week’s films “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” and “The Expendables,” I personally prefer Edgar Wright’s comedy to Stallone’s attempt at an action spectacular. For me “Scott Pilgrim” is the perfect combination of fight scenes, video game references, rock music, and sarcastic humor. If you have not read my review of it yet, check it out here.

“The Expendables” lacks the very minimal character development I think belongs in an action movie. Giant questions remain unanswered such as who these people are, why they are friends, what they have been through together, and why the...

Actor Jason Bateman has successfully shut down a gay porn website using his name without permission.

Fans of the Up in the Air star got a saucy shock when they logged onto JasonBateman.com, which directed followers to an X-rated website.

The star took swift legal action and now the site has been taken offline.

He says, "Jason Bateman was a big gay porn site. JasonBateman.com. It was for a long time. We sent some lawyers on that. It was worse - it wasn't even a gay porn site. It was a gay porn hub. 'From here you can go to thousands of porn sites!'"

Model Suing 'Couples Retreat' Producers Loses

July 10th, 2010 7:11pm EDT
Couples Retreat
A bizarre defamation suit against the producers of Vince Vaughn comedy "Couples Retreat" has been thrown out of court in New York.

Former model Irina Krupnik claimed a snap of her in a bikini, used by one of the film's characters as a sexual aid, is actually a shot she sold to a picture agency in 2001.

In her suit, filed in March, Krupnik insisted she would never have allowed the "commonplace swimwear ad" to be used as "softcore pornography" - and she claimed the film was ruining her reputation.

But NBC Universal bosses maintained they had the rights to use the photo.

Months of waiting for the horror/comedy "Zombieland" were thankfully not spent in vain. Both hilarious and poignant, this film reminds us that even in the post-apocalyptic world that home and family are what you make them.

Narration by the lead character Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) provides a great deal of humor, especially as he expounds upon his rules of survival in the zombie infested world. These rules make frequent appearance on screen during relevant moments, adding additional laughs.

Woody Harrelson is perfect as Tallahassee, the fearless badass with nothing to lose. He's ...

With summer coming to an end, there's one major thing to consider: what's going to be entertaining for the next three months? We assume you're thinking the same thing (great minds being alike and all), so here's the rundown of what Hollywood has coming:

Review: 'Extract' Is Funny But Not What Expected

September 3rd, 2009 9:44am EDT
Extract
"Extract" is not quite what was expected. Sure, it's funny. Sure, the awkward uncomfortableness of previous Mike Judge films ("Office Space," "Idiocracy") is here. There's just something, well, different. Certainly not in a bad way. There's just something a little more Grown Up about "Extract." If "Office Space" is the equivalent of a 25 year old human being, "Extract" represents that same entity at 38. And there are plenty of comparisons to be made to "Office Space."

Jason Bateman plays Joel (a mature and barely less disillusioned Peter Gibbons), the owner of an vanilla extract plant wh...

We've seen the film, and Dustin does his best to steal the scene as male gigolo Brad from co-stars Jason Bateman and Ben Affleck - notorious scene stealers themselves.

Mike Judge Takes The Boss's Side In 'Extract'

Mike Judge stuck it to the man with Office Space. The working man's anthem let the cubicle grunts get revenge on their bosses. Now in his latest comedy Extract, he takes the boss's side. Jason Bateman plays the owner of an extract factory, full of slacker employees.

This represents Judge's own transition from working stiff to media mogul. "I had worked so many jobs, by the time I got into animation, I was pushing 30," Judge said. "I'd already had so many jobs and I was always the employee, never had anybody working for me. Suddenly, when Beavis and Butthead happened, I had 30 to 90 peop...

Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" is my recommendation for the must-see movie of the summer. Anyone who has an appreciation for Tarantino's films will love this WWII epic.

Divided into chapters like his other directorial work, this story follows a much more linear path than earlier movies, but it still reflects his unique style and flair. Musically "Inglourious Basterds" feels like one part spaghetti western, one part 80s rock ballad, elevating the intensity of emotions and violence in a number of scenes.

As Lt. Aldo Raine, Brad Pitt is a crude, ruthless, brutally honest ...

Coming-Of-Age Films That We All Remember

Making the transition from adolescence into adulthood is a critical phase in an individual's life. This coming-of-age period, which has been coined "emerging adulthood" by Clark University research professor, Dr. Jeffrey Arnett, is characterized by identity exploration, self-focus, instability, a belief in boundless possibilities, and feeling in-between. According to Arnett's theory, in industrialized societies the types of experiences that people have who are in their late teens to mid-20's have changed dramatically over the past 50 years. Instead of being quick to make that walk down the ...
