Immaturity Stops Being Funny In 'American Reunion'

4/7/2012 11:30am EDT
American Reunion
No one likes getting old. What sucks almost as much as aging though, is doing things which make you feel old, like watching “American Reunion.” Despite its emphasis on sentimental nostalgia, the fourth film in the “American Pie” franchise simply reminds us that we can't live in the past forever.

The premise for reuniting the characters from East Great Falls is surprisingly sound. Their high school missed the group’s 10 year reunion, so they’ve decided to reconvene 13 years later instead. It’s an odd number and an unlucky one, but whatever. This should be a prime opportunity to catch...

Plus: exclusive family photos from Trayvon's parents.

Chris Klein Shrugs Off 'Horrible' 'Mamma Mia!' Audition

3/31/2012 12:00pm EDT
Chris Klein
Chris Klein feared he had upset a Hollywood executive after his self-confessed "dreadful" "Mamma Mia!" audition was leaked online.

The star was left red-faced after video footage of him singing off-key while trying for a role in the ABBA movie musical emerged on the internet in 2010.

The clip went viral and racked up millions of viewers - and Klein admits he was worried the leak was actually a former colleague's idea of revenge.

He recalls, "I thought to myself, 'Wow, did I p**s somebody off?' Or maybe it was too good of an opportunity to pass up...

"It's a horrible audition. And I took...

Klein is currently celebrating 19 months of sobriety as he promotes "American Pie" sequel "American Reunio...

Why is Katie Holmes Still Famous?

8/19/2009 11:51am EDT
Katie Holmes
Katie Holmes owes her career to "Dawson's Creek," cut her real acting teeth in "The Ice Storm," embarrassed herself in movies like "Disturbing Behavior," didn't embarrass herself in "Thank You for Smoking, and even tried her hand at Broadway. But she has yet to do anything that warrants the media's massive favoritism and fixation on her (other than being a very convenient excuse for Tom Cruise, ahem).

Is it her looks?

Some may argue that her looks have gotten her to where she is and kept her there. She did pursue modeling prior to her work as an actress. But take a look at Katie durin...
