Ellen Albertini Dow
Ellen Albertini Dow, best known as Rosie the rapping grandmother at the end of one of Adam Sandler's last good movies, The Wedding Singer, has died at the age of 101.

Dow graduated with a master's degree in theater from Cornell University in 1935, but she wouldn't make her screen debut until 50 years later, after she retired from teaching dance and drama when she appeared in American Drive-In in 1985.

The actress went on to guest star in numerous late 80s sitcoms, including Mr. Belvedere, Webster and The Wonder Years, but was most known for her small part in The Wedding Singer, when she t...

Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler's publicist has dismissed reports the actor/movie mogul reneged on a deal with a small restaurant to cater two meals for the cast and crew of his latest film.

The owner of A Taste of Italy in Massachusetts claims Sandler's company, Happy Madison Productions, made a deal with him to cater for two big BBQs following a meal at the restaurant.

However, the big meals never happened and he was left $2,500 out of pocket, prompting him to slap a poster on his shop window, stating, 'Adam Sandler ate here and never paid.'

Nonetheless, representatives for The Wedding Singer star, who...

My Best Friend
This weekend Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds light up the screen with a brand new romantic comedy titled The Proposal.

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."


A Look At Adam Sandler's Standout Movies

Adam Sandler
Of all the major stars today, not many cause such a divisive "love him or hate him" argument like Adam Sandler. Though if one can make it through the outstretched arms of his rabid fan base, and before you reach the angry mobs of critics and "haters" there is a very fascinating middle ground of people who are "intrigued" to say the least with Sandler's acting ability (in full disclosure the author of this piece falls into that "intrigued middle ground"). When given the right script Sander has proven time after time that he has true acting ability (see numbers 1, 3 and 5), and the intrigue ...

Hollywood's Sexiest Funnymen

Adam Sandler
In Hollywood there seems to be an everlasting stereotype that actors are extremely good looking and almost immortal. They are the untouchable eye candy on the screen. It doesn't matter what their personalities are like, we still idolize them and their looks.

Then there are those actors who seem to have very down-to-earth personalities and are so funny that you can't help but find them sexy. According to Psychology Today online, "The allure of male humor is so strong that female laughter may have evolved as a signal of sexual interest."

Here is our list of the top Hollywood sexy ...

Oldies But Goodies: Older Stars Who Keep On Acting

Dustin Hoffman
Everyone basically accepts that the entertainment biz is youth oriented. But in spite of the Hollywood bias, there are some older actors who keep at it. Below is a top 10 list of older folks who are still making it in showbiz (and we dare say these actors could teach Hollywood's current young whippersnappers a thing or two about how to have a long career).

10. Ellen Albertini Dow, age 89.

What's that? Her name doesn't ring a bell? Well, trust us, you know who she is. She had to make our list because at almost 90 Ellen is still lining up project after project. With her cute voice, b...

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)....

The Best & Worst Films Starring Drew Barrymore

Drew in 50 First Dates
There is perhaps no greater polarizing figure in the film world than Drew Barrymore. Very few waffle on Drew Barrymore's ability as an actress - you either love or hate her.

Some are entranced by the starlet's positive attitude and sunny demeanor. Others see that personality as a perfect compliment to her blonde hair. (Personally, we're pro-Drew, for who can hate a genuine sweetheart)? Either way, no one can deny that the actress has engaged her audience her entire life - from childhood celebrity to teenage addict to serial bride to nude poser. All the while, and quite amazingly, Barr...
