Getting drunk and making a fool of yourself is far different from watching other drunk people make fools of themselves. This is true especially in films: when an actor is behaving outrageously, you can’t help but laugh. To mark next Friday’s (December 14th) release of Smashed, a film about a young couple and their penchant for drinking, we have compiled our favourite scenes of on-screen drunkenness.
Old School is a story of three friends, disillusioned by the reality of their lives, who decide to form their own fraternity to relive their college days. This is the scene where Frank (Will Ferrell) gets absolutely wasted at their frat party and goes streaking. He is so drunkenly disillusioned that he thinks the entire party has followed suit, only to be found running down a major road, stark naked, by his wife and her friends.

Molly Ringwald is developing a Lifetime series about a mom who moves back to her hometown and has to deal with some lingering social baggage from her high school days. According to Variety, Ringwald's character will be "evocative" of her characters in John Hughes movies, though it's not clear if that means she's rich and misunderstood, poor and misunderstood, or middle class and largely ignored. »

Have you ever thought "that would be the most perfect job for me... if only it existed?" Well, this week's Happy Endings brought us the most ideal job Brad and Max could ever ask for.
Yes, in "Boys II Menorah" they were Bar Mitzvah Hype Guys. Dancing, emceeing and generating excitement at a teen party - could you think of anything more perfect for these two?
Dare I say Boyz 2 Menorah was the second coming of "The Lonely Island?" Especially with that promotional video at the end? I hope that it means "Boyz II Menorah" wasn't finished after all.
Penny was about to pull a Sixteen Candles move in that coatroom in order to do damage control. You know when Anthony Michael Hall shows the other freshman Molly Ringwald's underwear in order to save his reputation? It makes perfect sense that there would be a John Hughes reference on Happy Endings. »

Demi Moore's brat pack days are far behind her -- she turns 50 years old today!

While Demi definitely made a name for herself in "St. Elmo’s Fire," it wasn’t until 1990’s "Ghost" where she starred alongside Patrick Swayze that really launched Moore into the spotlight.

"The OutKast Mc's latest single rides an electro-funk groove so spry, Prince-ly and '80s-inspired that you can practically see Molly Ringwald roller-skating to it. Big Boi sounds typically light on his feet, speed-drawling comparisons between himself, Mozart and Van Gogh, while Kelly Rowland plays airy hook girl, reciting 'Mama's' practical advice. It's neon-lit pop fun - a straightforward crowd pleaser from a rap hall of famer." (Rolling Stone "Top Singles," Oct. 25, 2012) In advance of Big Boi's second stand-alone solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors - arriving in stores December 11th on Purple Ribbon/Def Jam Recordings, Diamond-selling, seven-time Grammy Award®-winning General has released a new single to overwhelming critical reception, "Mama Told Me" featuring fellow Grammy®-winner Kelly »

Ever watch a TV show or movie and think "wow, this actor is perfect for this role"?Well, if some studios and directors had their way, some of your favorite characters would have been played by different actors.Virgin Mobile Live has collected 15 surprising original casting choices. See five of the most unexpected below, and then check out their full list here.Bryan Cranston has won three consecutive Emmys for playing meth manufacturer Walter White on "Breaking Bad," and it's hard to imagine anyone else in the role. The brass at AMC were concerned about Cranston's association with comedy "Malcolm in the Middle," and preferred John Cusack and Matthew Broderick for the lead. Luckily, "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan cast Cranston after seeing him on "The X-Files."See 15 surprising original casting choices hereScarlett Johansson wasn't the first choice to play Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in "Iron Man 2."

He was the Brat Pack actor who oozed charm as the perfect boyfriend in films such as Pretty in Pink and St Elmo's Fire. But in reality he was a celebrity-shy loner who has turned to travel writing to find himself
"So if there's a lull in the conversation feel free to fill it by giving him my number."
"Can you just tell him that I love him?"
This is just a small selection of emails I received from my thirtysomething female friends – all generally sensible members of society – when they heard that I was to interview the actor Andrew McCarthy. If you are from a similar demographic, there is a high chance that you yourself are making various similar squeaks and bleats now. If you are not, your face is likely to be something of a question mark.
So for the benefit of those in the latter group, let »

In a sleepy Australian beach community shoppers at the underground Oceania supermarket are under attack by a crazed bandit. Suddenly, the unimaginable happens. A monster freak tsunami swallows up the town hook, line and sinker. Now trapped, with rushing waves threatening to entomb them in a watery grave, the survivors discover they are not alone. For the tsunami has brought unwanted visitors up from the depths. Not only must they overcome the threat of drowning and the psycho robber in their midst, but also a hazard far more deadly and bloodthirsty – a pack of hungry sharks.
Halloween is a month for the macabre, and you know what that means: I'm thinking about Winona Ryder's career. I still have the feathers in my mouth from her traumatizing Black Swan appearance. Shivers. Remember when Natalie Portman won an Oscar for playing a one-dimensional lunatic in what amounted to an overcooked, below-average Bjork video? I'm traumatized by that too.
But more importantly I'm thinking about Heathers, which I proclaim the definitive high school black comedy of all time -- so take that, uh, John Tucker Must Die! In retrospect, the unabashed kookiness of Ryder, Christian Slater, and the titular croquet-loving trio was sort of a slap in the face to the humdrum, half-snarling teens of John Hughes films. With Heathers came a refreshing burst of real cynicism. Smugness. Droopy anarchy. And not the kind that involves punching the air because you locked lips with Molly Ringwald in Saturday detention. »
Katey and Joe attended the sneak Lincoln preview at the Nyff and lived to tell the cel-phone free tale. Nick forces yours truly, Nathaniel, into an aca-awkward confession and the only movie that everyone has seen is Pitch Perfect which is clearly 100% appropriate for an Oscar-focused podcast. Certain to sweep!
Topics include but are not limited to:
Anna Kendrick being so over it in Pitch Perfect. Sally Field being over the top of it in Lincoln. Helen Hunt being on top of it (John Hawkes) in The Sessions. Nicole Kidman killing it in The Paperboy. Supporting Actress doubling up on it. Elle Fanning giggling through it for Ginger & Rosa Ben Affleck, Amy Adams, Molly Ringwald (???) and More!

This week's "Saturday Night Live" didn't have many high points, but one everyone seemed to agree on was the fake commercial for the "Bond 50" collection.
In a classic "SNL" setup, the premise of the pre-taped sketch was that the Blu-ray set included every Bond girl, including ones we may have forgotten. This led to a wonderful string of impersonations from Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer, plus another turn from Fred Armisen as Penny Marshall.
It also allowed Craig to do what he does best: Bond.
Check out the sketch after the jump!
The fake movie titles seal the deal:
Diane Keaton in "Never Die Twice Tomorrow"
Jodie Foster in "Kill Me Once, Shame On You"
Lea Michele in "Hippopotopussy"
Molly Ringwald in "The Man Who Was a Gun"
Ellen DeGeneres in "Honey I Killed the Spy"
Penny Marshall in "Quantum of Leap"

The cold open took on the first presidential debate, which is the perfect topic for the show opening. Unfortunately, the hook of the sketch was that President Obama spent the entire time in his head worrying about his anniversary present for Michelle, or the altitude. Does anybody else think the skewering of the debate could've been a bit sharper?
Daniel Craig's monologue also fell a little flat. It was an In Memoriam reel of the people he's killed in the movies he's done, ending with a joke that he killed a real sound engineer and a dog. Hmm.

The days are shorter, the mornings are crisper and Halloween is right around the corner. That can mean only one thing: It's time once again for SplatterFest, Houston's premier horror film fest.
Now in its third year, SplatterFest is the brainchild of filmmakers Kerry Beyer and Kelly Byrns. But this year, Byrns and Beyer have made their SplatterFest even bigger and better than ever. I know what you're thinking — after last year's ultra-groovy Bruce Campbell orgy-a-thon, how is that even possible?
Here's how: SplatterFest 2012 has expanded and created AmazingFest, destined to be one of the Southwest's top pop culture conventions, for a trip back to the days of shoulder pads, parachute pants and mullets...oh yes, my friends, SplatterFest is headed to the 1980s. And the guest of honor will be none other than that close, personal friend of Molly Ringwald and ultimate king of the geeks: the one, the only Farmer Ted. »
Grace has to contend with hostility not only from her own enlisted men but from the country she's sworn to serve, after her captain (Andre Braugher) disobeys a direct order and the sub is attacked.
Betts, an Australian native and relative newcomer to U.S. TV, is a standout in "Last Resort's" strong (and sexy) ensemble cast, and one of Zap2it's Ones to Watch for the 2012-13 season.
We guarantee you'll learn much more about Betts soon, but we asked the important questions. Read on for all her answers, direct from the Hawaii set of "Last Resort"...

TV fans already know Anna Camp from her turns on HBO's "True Blood" and CBS' "The Good Wife," but this fall she's testing out her comedy chops as Mindy Kaling's level-headed Bff on Fox's "The Mindy Project."
The show, which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9:30 p.m. Et, features Camp as the perfectly coiffed, married gal who seems to have it all together, which should provide for a funny foil to Kaling's lovelorn Mindy.
Camp is also part of Zap2it's new batch of Ones to Watch this fall. We asked her about everything from which celeb she'd switch teams for to which "Breakfast Club" character she would've been pals with in high school (paging Molly Ringwald!).
Check out her responses below, and catch her on "The Mindy Project."
What's the most embarrassing song is on your iPod?
"This Is Ponderous" by 2nu, the weirdest song ever written.
