Here is our list of the worst chick flicks:

Failure to Launch

AKA "Failure to Make Money at the Box Office" had potential to be a good chick flick but bombed badly. Sarah Jessica Parker plays a therapist/interventionist who ...

Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts has laughed off rumours of a sequel to her 1990 hit movie Pretty Woman, insisting at 41 she's too old to play a prostitute.

Roberts' role as a 'hooker with a heart of gold' alongside Richard Gere catapulted her into Hollywood's A-list.

But she has no plans to return to the streets of Los Angeles, telling TV show Extra at a charity event in California on Monday night, "No one wants to see an old hooker! Do they?"

Say What? Most Bizarre Celebrity Rumors & Myths

Richard Gere
Who hasn't heard the infamous rumor about Richard Gere and the gerbil? Is it true that Michael Jackson sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber? Did Tom Cruise really use sperm specimens of late Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard to father Suri?

These are simply a taste of some of the wacky, tacky and downright bizarre celebrity rumors that have circulated the mill at some point. So which of these celebrity myths can be debunked and which hold a grain of truth?


Intriguingly salacious though it was, the mid 1980's rumor that Gere, the handsome young star of An Officer and a ...

The 'That Guy' Encyclopedia, Letters L Through Z

Danny Trejo
Throughout cinematic history, there has been a plethora of actors that, for some reason or another, never become a household name. So here is a cheat sheet of sorts, a brief encyclopedia on "That Guy." Part Two: Letters L-Z. If you missed the first installment, you can check it out here.

Stubborn General or Muslim, Harry Lennix

Lennix played Lock, the unbelieving general in Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions. He appeared in short bursts in TV shows such as Diagnosis Murder and ER before a longer stay on Commander in Chief. He played a Moor in Titus and a Muslim in 24. He is currently s...

'The Hills' Finale: A Farewell To Blondes

The Hills
This mini-season of The Hills came to a close last night, and my grade would be a C+. The highlights of this season - Kelly Cutrone, Kelly Cutrone, and more Kelly Cutrone. The lowlights - Stephanie Pratt, Spencer Pratt, the complete Barbie-fication of Heidi, and LC's lackluster turn as a jobless, student-less, sometimes heartless reality celeb.

It's almost as if the Paris Hilton syndrome infected the "Hills" stars this mini season. Symptoms of the Paris Hilton syndrome include a complete lack of purpose, no will or drive to succeed, and an especially cavalier attitude towards life...

Ever seen a movie with some little-known or vaguely recognizable actor and then had to ask yourself, 'Who WAS that person?'

Following is a list of some of our favorite career-making performances in no particular order:

1) Julia Roberts in "Pretty Woman"

It's probably one of the most obvious "career launching" roles of the last 30 years, but no compilation of career-defining movies would be complete without i...

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

4/17/2008 8:00am EDT
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Well "Hills" fans, we've made it through a barren, frigid winter, and now spring has delivered us unto Paris, home of "The Hills" season premiere.

15 Memorable Music Scenes On Film

William Shakespeare
As a film junkie and music geek I always look forward to seeing what songs directors will put in certain scenes to create the right mood. Finding the perfect song isn't always easy. The song has to fit that key moment or it could ruin the movie.

Following is a list of songs that have really made a movie scene stand out. I'm sure you will notice two things about me: I love chick flicks and 80's movies. This wasn't an easy task. I found over 50 songs and cut the list down to 15 with a few honorable mentions.

15) "Kissing You" by Des'Ree from the movie "Romeo + Juliet" (1996)

Julia Roberts Wears The 'Hairy Armpit' Dress Again

6/20/2006 9:33am EDT
Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts caused a stir by greeting fans on Broadway wearing a seven-year-old dress. The actress last wore the red sequinned garment to the London premiere of Notting Hill, in 1999, where she shocked onlookers by revealing her hairy armpits as she waved to the crowd.

Roberts slipped into the knee-length Vivienne Tam shift dress again last weekend to greet fans before her final performance in Broadway show Three Days Of Rain.

Back in 1999, Roberts was dating actor Benjamin Bratt and revealed she didn't shave her armpits because he found it a "turn on". The Pretty Woman star is ...

Julia Roberts Not Famous Enough For Perfume

Julia Roberts has been dropped from Dior's Hollywood wish-list - because she's not famous enough. The Pretty Woman star - who is currently starring in the hit Broadway show, Three Days Of Rain - was in negotiations to be the face of a new perfume due to be launched next year, but the firm has apparently pulled out of talks. An insider told New York Post newspaper: "We are not so interested anymore.

"We are looking at lots of famous women to maybe be the face."

Meanwhile, two other A-list stars have been luckier in securing lucrative advertising deals. Oscar-winning actress Rachel ...
