Animal rights activists have taken aim at Reese Witherspoon for carrying a bag that appeared to be made of python skin.

The Legally Blonde star was spotted with a $4,000 python skin purse as she strolled through Venice, California last week - and photos of her new accessory have upset officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

A spokeswoman for PETA says, "No matter how much Reese paid for that bag, the animals paid a much higher price. We can't imagine that she'd wish to contribute to this hidden suffering, especially for something as frivolous as a fashion access...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Ghosts Of Hunter's Past

October 15th, 2011 8:54am EDT

Last week’s episode of “Supernatural” ended with the season’s biggest shocker so far when Dean killed Sam’s first crush—a brain-eating demon with a morals—after his little brother had all but begged him to trust in his judgment that she wouldn’t kill again and let her go.

It was an ugly moment for the often self-destructive Dean Winchester, and it spoke to his frayed mental state. His guilt carried over to this week’s episode that felt like classic “Supernatural” and a love letter to the fans who’ve stuck around for seven crazy seasons. “Defending Your Life” had loads of gore, the Winch...

25 Worst Movies Of 2009

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...

DVD Purgatory: 'Spring Breakdown'

Spring Breakdown
In between box-office heaven and unreleased hell lies DVD Purgatory, where movies with popular actors, big budgets and bigger problems rest in eternal damnation on the shelves of your local Blockbuster. Each month we'll take a look at one of these lost souls and figure out what went wrong. This month's unfortunate victim is "Spring Breakdown".

Female-centric comedies are rarely big winners, but the ones that break through - think "Legally Blonde" or "House Bunny" - usually hit it big due to the dearth of funny films targeted toward women.

So, it made sense for Warner Bros. to give th...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

The Ugly Truth
Last Tuesday I had the opportunity to catch "Dead Snow" on Demand, and it was everything I hoped it would be. To enjoy the film though you truly need to suspend your disbelief, because if Nazi zombies are not enough, there are tons of really ridiculous, impossible events that occur.

This self-aware horror film makes many hilarious references both directly and indirectly to other movies of the genre. Characters are incredibly cliché and the dialogue is woefully written, but it is an action packed gore-fest featuring some of the most delightfully brutal horror movie deaths.

Even Oscar winning actresses like Reese Witherspoon have made a few films that aren't worth seeing. Reese is adorable, bubbly and likeable as an actress and as a person. She's probably best known for her role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde because no one could have played that part better than she did. However, there were a few stale moments in her career where her movies failed to leave a mark in Hollywood.

Spotlight On Movies That Became Musicals

The Little Mermaid
Fans of movie musicals know that most of their favorites, like "Grease," "West Side Story," "The Sound of Music," and "Oklahoma!" were adapted from popular Broadway plays. However, the trend in recent years has been to flip that formula around by taking a big-screen hit and trying to turn it into a small-stage sensation.

Disney has had great success with its theatrical adaptations, starting in 1994 with the critically-acclaimed "Beauty and the Beast." The hits kept coming with stage productions of "The Lion King," "Mary Poppins," and, most recently, "The Little Mermaid."
