Kim Kardashian caused chaos at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France on Wednesday, when fans swarmed around the famous Mona Lisa painting to take snaps of the reality TV star.

The brunette beauty stopped by the art gallery with her mother, Kris, during a promotional tour of Europe, but their presence attracted the attention of the paparazzi as they entered the building, putting museum security bosses on high alert.

The Kardashians were assigned their own security guards to escort them to Leonardo Da Vinci's masterpiece, but they failed to maintain a low profile and soon found themselves at t...

Ron Howard Talks 'Arrested Development' & More Dan Brown Movies

Ron Howard
We're still waiting for the "Arrested Development" movie. They finally signed all the cast members, and series creator Mitch Hurtwitz is writing the script. Only producer Ron Howard has any direct information.

"Mitch Hurwitz is working on a story, working on a script and he would direct it," Howard said. "Everyone's hoping but we're not going to go through with anything that we don't think lives up to the standard."

Even Hurwitz is keeping his secrets, but just the tidbits he's shared with Howard are promising. "No clues as to who's in it, no clues as to what the storyline is but every ti...

25 Worst Movies Of 2009

November 27th, 2009 9:46am EST
The Body
Wow, there were some bad movies, like really bad, in 2009 but since we are optimists we like to think the good outnumbered the bad. We already discussed the good movies, and now we will feature the bad and ugly of 2009. Sometimes bad movies are entertaining enough to keep our attention for a few hours but sometimes the movies are so bad we induce vomiting to make us feel better.

Couples Retreat (25) had the cast and the budget to be a funny flick and it came out in the fourth quarter of 2009 when the best movies already came out. This movie was bad, not funny, and it might have marked th...

The summer movie season is finally at its end. Yesterday we listed Part 1 of the first annual "Summer Movie Awards" in categories such as: surprise hit, the bomb nobody noticed, indie hit, and most disappointing. Check out more films that deserve to be recognized for their summer performances:

The Death by Twitter Award

Winner: "Bruno"

This movie made more than 20 percent of its gross in the first night. After that evening, the Twiterrati hit their little squawk box to spread the word that there was far too much spreading of limbs in this bit of borderline pornography. The resul...

'Angels & Demons' Is A Complete Mess

May 18th, 2009 2:41pm EDT
Angels and Demons
Dan Brown's novels have a single extraordinary trick to them that play out in both film adaptations, "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons." Essentially, the movies (and books, respectively) are tours of Europe's most famous landmarks given at break-neck speed and cloaked in a cheesy dinner murder mystery that gives them an edge most museum or Vatican tours don't have. In that context, "Angels & Demons" is a success. In all others however, it fails miserably.

Langdon is a symbolism professor called upon by the Vatican to unravel the symbols that point to the location of four card...

Review: 'Angels & Demons' Is Fun And A Serviceable Summer Thriller

May 14th, 2009 9:37am EDT
Angels and Demons
Remember the movie The Man With One Red Shoe? Tom Hanks played an unsuspecting concert violinist who is mistaken for a spy. It was not particularly well made and it was not particularly funny but, hey, it had Dabney Coleman! What it also had was Hanks in the midst of his kinda-silly-movie era -- which also included Volunteers, Dragnet and The Money Pit -- movies that meant nothing, but at least they sort of realized that. What does this have to do with Hanks' new film, Angels and Demons? Not a lot. Other than I kind of miss silly-movie-era Hanks, at times, and Angels and Demons didn't quite...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

Before we get started on the Mega Oscar Diary, let's go to a few random ramblings from the cadre of pre-shows around the dial:

-Philip Seymour Hoffman's hat probably came with a matching set of fingerless gloves.

-Those who were unable to see the Los Angeles CW affiliate's pre-show missed this exchange.

-The CW's Female Host: What is the role you'd love to do next. If you could do anything following 'The Wrestler' what would it be?

As 2008 comes to an end, it is time to close the book on the entertainment experiences that we have had this year. Yes, Transformers blew our minds. Girls, Sex and the City blew your minds.

Tom Arnold Urges Actors To Stay Out Of Union Dispute

July 11th, 2008 7:00pm EDT
Tom Arnold
True Lies star Tom Arnold has urged his peers to stay out of the feud between actors unions and the movie studios - because their comments aren't helping resolve issues and thwart a strike.

The movie star insists recent public comments made by the likes of George Clooney, Tom Hanks and Sean Penn only serve to hinder union bosses as they attempt to work out new deals on working conditions and royalties for their members.

Arnold feels sure there will be no actors strike - as long as union bosses are allowed to do their job without the input of outspoken stars.

He says, "We've g...
