When Good Movies Turn Bad: The Movie Version Of Jumping The Shark

August 13th, 2009 11:34am EDT
Funny People
Ordinarily, an article such as this warrants a spoiler alert, but since the only thing giving away plot details of the last hour of "Funny People" would spoil is a good nap, that disclaimer is null in this instance.

There's a moment in this film, about three-fifths of the way through it, when Adam Sandler's George Simmons calls Seth Rogen's Ira Wright (née Weiner), and tells him in a strange pirate voice that they're to set sail for San Francisco the next day to perform a comedy show. He then makes a funny phallus-related joke and the camera cuts away.

Unexpected Celebrity Career Changes

Joaquin Phoenix
In the celebrity world, career dabbling is a relatively common occurrence. Once a person has risen to celebrity status, they have easy access to the necessary resources, such as agents, publicists, and various other in-the-biz connections, that will allow them to change careers almost as often as they change their bed sheets - think celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Hilary Duff who oscillate between being actresses and singers. Career changes like these are made especially possible in today's celebrity world thanks to contraptions like auto-tune, which has lead to the replacement of talen...

Why Are So Many Rappers Acting?

August 27th, 2008 11:46am EDT
Hancock
This isn't to bash rappers, nor is it to say that these artists aren't allowed to pursue different paths in Hollywood. With so many prominent rappers acquiring roles in big movies though, it begs the question-why?

It's not as if rappers in movies are a new thing. In 1991, Mario Van Peebles cast Ice-T as a cop in "New Jack City," a film that is beloved by many. That same year, director John Singleton cast Ice Cube as a Los Angeles gangbanger in "Boyz N the Hood." These two movies helped open the floodgates for rappers to enter the world of acting.

Soon, Will Smith went from rap...

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Is Connecticut the new Hollywood? Probably not, but it has become a hotspot for filmmaking. The quaint, colonial towns and Yale's impressive architecture led director Steven Spielberg to direct a portion of his highly anticipated "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" in New Haven. Director Sam Mendes admits that the state is a central character in his latest movie, "Revolutionary Road," starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Sure, the New England state is beautiful in the fall with its crimson leaves, pumpkin patches, and white picket fences. It features beautifu...

Jean Claude Van Damme
Jean Claude Van Damme had an affair with Kylie Minogue. The action hero romanced the diminutive pop star when the pair filmed the 1994 movie Street Fighter together. Although Van Damme regrets appearing in the much derided movie he is glad he did because he got to get up close and personal to Kylie.

He told Britain's Empire magazine: "'Street Fighter' was corny to me. But there were nice things. I got to see the land of Australia and had a mini-affair with Kylie Minogue. If you ever see her, say hello for me to Kylie."

The martial arts expert also insists he is a lover, not a figh...
