2005 Summer Movie Preview Part I premium
The summer movie season is upon us and that means you should get ready for an event even more predictable than Coral bitch-slapping another contestant on the latest installment of the Real World/Road Rules Inferno. Yes that’s right, it’s time for the obligatory 2005 Summer Movie Preview! Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the […]

I’m Still Waiting for The Snowball Express II premium
Miss Lohan, I watched Dean Jones in Disney movies. I knew Dean Jones. Dean Jones was a friend of mine. Miss Lohan, you’re no Dean Jones.

Saving Grace premium
Debra Messing, star of NBC’s sitcom Will & Grace, is throwing her hat into the lead actress in a romantic screen comedy ring. Sure, Messing has appeared in other big-screen classics such as McHale’s Navy, and….. uh…. well did I already mention McHale’s Navy? Regardless, this is Messing’s first foray into the world of film […]

That’s Why They Call it a Career ARC premium
Take note Halle Berry. Keep making the wrong choices and you’ll end up losing second billing in a creepy Robert De Niro movie to the tow-headed moppet of the moment. Consider for a moment the career of Elisabeth Shue, the dirty blonde ingenue of 1980’s celluloid classics such as the Karate Kid (playing the beautiful […]

Extravadanza Redux premium
A few months ago I posted an entry about the new daytime talker hosted by everybody’s favorite sitcom Tony, Tony Danza. The name of the post was “ExtravaDanza.” It now appears as though the Tony Danza Show now features a “Plinko-style” game on their program. Guess what they called it? That’s right, Extravadanza. In a […]

Swimming Up the Mainstream premium
It appears I am very much out of tune with the rest of America. Their actions this month continue to baffle and amaze me. How can they turn out in droves to support something I can’t even imagine being a part of? They’re zealous passion makes me a little uneasy, and quite frankly, scares me. […]

Charlie Hustle premium
I’m getting pretty excited about ESPN’s upcoming tv biopic of Pete Rose. It’s not that I’m really all that interested in the rise and fall of Major League Baseball’s all-time career hits leader. It’s that the friendly folks over at ESPN Original Entertainment always go that extra mile to make sure the casting of their […]

Tony’s production staff has released some of the topics and guests we can expect to see on his upcoming shows: Special Guest – Judd Hirsch stops by for a stark reminder of how old we’re getting. Brainstorming your new sitcom character names? Look no […]

George Carlin Shouldn’t Act premium
I saw the Ben Affleck flick Jersey Girl this evening. I do believe this is one of the first times I’ve seen Liv Tyler in an entertainment vehicle that didn’t prominently involve either Aerosmith or Hobbits. You would think a movie in which J-Lo dies within the first 10 minutes would have been more deeply […]

Part Deux premium
Follow the money. The sage advice given to Woodward and Bernstein by Deep Throat during the Watergate investigation is applicable to the tracking of any despicable act committed by those in unchecked seats of power. That’s why I say ‘follow the money’ to find the studio executives responsible for hoisting, not one, but two almost […]
