The Good Wife

Not being picked up, but still not cancelled, are The Mentalist, Intelligence, Hostages, and The Crazy Ones. I would definitely rule out Intelligence and Hostages. Both failed to grab huge audiences. I think The Mentalist will prob...

5 Best Movies On The Humorous Side Of Child Endangerment

December 9th, 2011 10:00am EST
The Sitter Poster
Why do we love R-rated comedy? Answer: The swearing is better. This sex is more comical. The shenanigans are more extreme. What makes any R-rated comedy better? Answer: Children.

The addition of children to any hilarious movie only makes that movie more hilarious. Having kids along for the ride takes all the things we love about these films and intensifies them. Having a kid in the car during a chase scene makes the danger more real and more frightening (hence the title of this column). Swearing, the lifeblood of any R-rated comedy, seems all the more taboo when it’s done in front of kids....

‘Bad Teacher’ Forcibly Pushes The Comedic Envelope

June 26th, 2011 5:40pm EDT
Bad Teacher 1
If “Bad Santa,” uh…excuse me, “Bad Teacher,” is on your must-see list, it’s probably because you’re curious to watch Cameron Diaz as an unapologetically rude teacher. Don’t feel ashamed though.

Your interest is logical, since there’s serious comedic potential whenever an actor breaks away from normal type casting. It can be risky if the actor flops, though it can be a real treat if he or she successfully plays a new type of role. At first, “Bad Teacher” rewards you for taking the plunge, by creating laughs with some subtle humor and great editing.

You’re initially introduced to the te...

The Strange And Surprising Career Of Cameron Diaz

June 23rd, 2011 1:00pm EDT
Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz is anything but a predictable actor. This Friday, “Bad Teacher” opens and will showcase Diaz’s R-rated comedy skills opposite Justin Timerlake and Jason Segel, an alumnus of the Judd Apatow school of raunchy humor. Directed by Jake Kasdan (“Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story”), Diaz stars as the world’s worst teacher who would rather get high in her car than teach her kids anything. While most moviegoers see her as just a pretty face who pops up in mediocre films, Diaz has had an incredibly unique and varied career in Hollywood over the last two decades.

Cameron Diaz Filmed 'Least Sexy Sex Scene Ever' With Ex Justin Timberlake

June 21st, 2011 3:12pm EDT
Bad Teacher
Cameron Diaz says she had no trouble filming a sex scene with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake for the film Bad Teacher - because the scene wasn't going to be sexy at all!

She tells BlackBook, "Justin and I wanted to create the least sexy sex scene ever seen on film, ever. And to show the total lack of chemistry between these two people, and I think that we succeeded."

Cameron also never felt awkward filming a movie with someone she previously dated. "Yes, we went out, and yes, people think, Oh, shouldn’t that be awkward? It really isn’t. We’re friends. We haven’t gone out with each othe...

Cameron Diaz sizzled at the "Bad Teacher" world premiere in New York City yesterday. She wore a very short black and white mini dress that was sheer enough to reveal a little bit of what's underneath.

The actress, who turns 39 in August, told the new issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, "I think you get better as you age. You know what you want, and you become stronger mentally, emotionally, and physically."

Well, with the way she looks these days (and pushing 40!) we'd have to agree. What do you think?

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Cars 2,' 'Bad Teacher' & More

Cars 2
The long-awaited superhero flick “Green Lantern” was a huge disappointment last week. Normally I love Ryan Reynolds for his smug sarcasm and his lovable slacker type characters, but not even he could save this exercise in superficial storytelling. If you haven’t already read it, check out my review, for my complete thoughts.

Arriving in theaters this week are the Disney Pixar sequel “Cars 2,” the R-rated Cameron Diaz comedy “Bad Teacher,” and the Los Angeles drama “A Better Life.” I will be attending a screening of “Bad Teacher,” so definitely watch out for a review later in the week. ...

Acting--The One Thing Justin Timberlake Can't Do?

I have been…well, I’ll call it an extremely passionate fan of Justin Timberlake since Dec. 8, 1998. I remember the exact date for two reasons: my mother actually let me go to the 'N Snyc concert on a school night, and because I went in mocking the then booming boyband craze and I left positively infatuated. Being a pop culture maven in training, I marveled at 'N Sync's bleach blond, beatboxing youngest member, Justin. I knew then what has been proven to be overwhelmingly true now: Justin Timberlake is one of the most talented and business savvy stars in the eccentric universe that is Hol...

Cameron Diaz relished the bad language her character in upcoming movie "Bad Teacher" uses.

She explained, "The swearing was great. It's nice because usually I'm ruining takes because somehow it slips out when you're in the moment. To be able to do a film where they're like, 'Could you do that a little bit more?' I'm like, 'Really?' So, it's a lot of fun."
