11 Great Movies With Truly Terrible Plot Twists

11 Great Movies With Truly Terrible Plot Twists
In most cases, the quality of a plot twist usually determines the quality of a movie. Bruce Willis was a ghost the whole time in The Sixth Sense. Great twist, great movie. Robert Pattinson was actually a 9/11 victim the whole time in Remember Me. Awful twist, borderline offensive movie.

But sometimes things don't add up. Sometimes, in going for that perfect little story zigzag, a film will overshoot (undershooting is also an issue) and leave us with a big twist that either makes no sense, or makes plenty of sense and is just monstrously stupid.

So prepare yourself, as we travel through a ...

Fans Hit Back After Disney's 'Frozen' Lead Animator Calls Female Characters 'Difficult'

10/10/2013 4:07pm EDT
Disney has a princess problem. After catching some flack over the years for their depiction of women in their animated films, one of their lead animators has created another controversy with his latest comments.

While talking to Fan Voice's Jenna Busch, head of Animation on the film Frozen Lino Disalvo had some questionable comments. "Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, 'cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very qu...

Lindsay Lohan Stars In 'The Real Housewives Of Disney' In Hilarious 'SNL' Spoof (Video)

SNL Real Housewives Of Disney
Lindsay Lohan made her return to television Saturday night hosting a rather lackluster episode of Saturday Night Live; but the star did have one gem up her sleeve - a parody of Bravo TV's Real Housewives.

Lohan, along with cast regulars Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott, Nasim Pedrad and Vanessa Bayer, starred as Disney Princesses Rapunzel (Tangled), Cinderella, Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Jasmine (Aladdin) and Snow White, respectively, in the skit, and they mocked the usual drama of the hit Bravo series (watch it below).

During her opening monologue, the Mean Girls star unsurprisingly poked f...

Mandy Moore Rules Out Romantic Comedies

Mandy Moore
Mandy Moore has no plans to star in any more romantic comedies - because she's convinced there is "nothing to learn" from making light-hearted movies.

The singer-turned-movie star wants to seek out more challenging scripts and establish herself as a serious actress after turns in films including A Walk To Remember and License to Wed.

She tells Digital Spy, "I've had fun doing romantic comedies but I just can't anymore. There's nothing fulfilling creatively, there's nowhere to grow, nothing to learn from it or for yourself. I'd rather just be home with my family or write music until tha...

It's that time of year...Hollywood's super fun award show, The Golden Globes...where anything can happen.

Actor Zachary Levi "freaked out" when he was put up for the male lead in new animated movie musical Tangled - because he has always loved Disney movies.

The star voices the prince charming character opposite Mandy Moore's Princess Rapunzel, but Levi was convinced he'd miss out on the role - so he decided to give the audition his all.

He tells, "I heard about this from my agent and then freaked out. I mean, I think everyone in our generation grew up with these movies and loved them."

This holiday weekend, Disney releases their 50th animated film, Tangled. Another musical based on a fairy tale, this retelling of Rapunzel features more catchy music by Alan Menken, the composer behind Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and Enchanted.

Mandy Moore provides the voice of Rapunzel and sings many songs.

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies- 'Tangled,' 'Burlesque' & More

I caught “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” last Monday, which turned out to be largely uneventful. While there are moments in the beginning and end that are quite stimulating, most of the movie involves tedious set up for the final film. If you have not seen my review yet definitely check it out here.

In addition to “Deathly Hallows: Part 1” I had the opportunity to see the Paul Haggis thriller “The Next Three Days,” starring Russell Crowe. Crowe is surprisingly believable as an everyman character forced to make tough choices to save his family. That’s why it’s so surpris...

'Tangled' Review: Disney's Magic Is Back With Charming, Rousing Songs & Storyline

11/22/2010 9:21am EST
Disney has had some hits and misses with animated films in recent memory. Sure, the mighty house of mouse made “Beauty and The Beast” “Aladdin” and “The Lion King” but “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” was sad, “Pocahontas” was oddly animated, “Hercules” was grotesque, and “Mulan” was lacking in song quality. The less said about “Home on The Range” the better.

So Disney went to CGI animated films and tried to play catch up to Pixar. The results thus far have been mixed. “Meet the Robinsons” was cute, “Bolt” was adorable, “Chicken Little” was middling, and nothing really captured the 90's magic...

Mandy Moore wore a fuschia one-shouldered dress to the "Tangled" world premiere in Los Angeles yesterday. She paired it with gold, sparkly shoes. We're not crazy about the fit of the dress. It doesn't show off her figure quite right.

What do you think?

The classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale gets a lavish CG makeover as directors Byron Howard and Nathan Greno team up to tell the tale of a fair-haired beauty (voiced by Moore) with long-flowing locks, a gallant hero with a heart of gold, and the evil witch who plots to keep these lovelorn innocents apart.

November will unleash on moviegoers some of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. Sure to be the biggest opener of the month will be “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” which will ease fans into the end of the “Harry Potter” movie franchise.
