Managing to elicit genuine belly laughs while playing a blind teenage cancer patient in this summer’s “The Fault in Our Stars,” 19-year-old Nat Wolff has displayed a precocious knack for wringing humor out of the most unfortunate circumstances. And yet, as Tim Garrick’s barrel-bottom teen sex farce “Behaving Badly” illustrates, even he has his limits. Wolff is hardly alone, however, as a surprisingly deep cast of slumming stars (Selena Gomez, Mary-Louise Parker, Elisabeth Shue, Gary Busey, Jason Lee, and even an uncredited Justin Bieber) all fail to lift this ruthlessly unfunny misfire, which should be quickly relegated to an IMDb trivia question after a brief theatrical bow.
Things start out badly for 17-year-old Rick Stevens (Wolff), who opens the film by discovering he has crabs, only to head downstairs and discover his alcoholic mother (Parker) slumped on the couch, with pill bottles, vodka and various suicide notes strewn all around. »

Wolff and fellow co-star Nate Hartley took their movie title name literally, when they decided to cover themselves and surrounding fans with silly string on the red carpet.
Throughout the film, Wolff can be seen in his underwear, his face planted in Shue’s chest, getting crabs and kissing Gomez.
Regardless of the awkward scenes, Wolff said, “It was nice that they hired such good, fun people to hang out with in real life. The hard thing was just trying to stay and react to all these cartoon characters around me. That was basically the challenge of it.”

There has always been an understated rivalry between the mediums of movies and television. Many years ago it was even thought as being somewhat of a drastic career letdown if actors/actresses from film decided to depart for the landscape of television. The truth is that for some performers that had stalled or uneventful momentum in motion pictures that the concept of “slumming it” in television actually saved their show business profession. Hence, the boob tube made them relevant whereas the big screen had unceremoniously passed them by.
However, there is also a mutual respect that cinema and television share that go hand in hand when shaping our appreciation for entertainment on both the big and small screen. When movies depict the aspects of the TV world giving a sociological, psychological or emotional perspective then it is not so uncool to be a proud couch potato after all, right? Let »

This past weekend had the fewest number of reader predictions I can remember and given the lackluster Fourth of July weekend perhaps we've reached a point where no one cares any longer. I mean, we're talking about a weekend where compared to the year prior the $118.5 million combined total of the top 12 was down 47% from last year and, as Box Office Mojo points out, it was the worst Independence Day weekend since 1999 when the top 12 managed $116.5 million, but you adjust for inflation and that comes to $182.5M. In fact, adjusted for inflation, this is the worst Independence Day weekend since 1987, a weekend where there wasn't a single film in the top 12 playing in more than 1,980 theaters and the Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks television remake of Dragnet took the #1 spot with $7 million in its second weekend. The two new films that weekend were Innerspace starring Martin Short in 1,603 theaters and »

Bona fide '80s classic The Karate Kid celebrates its 30th anniversary today (June 22), but what ever happened to the cast of this uplifting martial arts film? Digital Spy goes then and now with the film's lead stars to find out what they did after starring in the original and best Karate Kid.
Ralph Macchio became an instant '80s icon thanks to his role as The Karate Kid's fresh-faced Daniel Larusso. Prior to The Karate Kid's release, he starred in Francis Ford Coppola's The Outsiders alongside Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Tom Cruise. After that, he played Danny again in two Karate Kid sequels. He also starred in My Cousin Vinny (yes, the film that won Marisa Tomei an Oscar) and more recently appeared in Entourage, Ugly Betty and Dancing with the Stars.
Pat Morita was already a veteran screen »
Sorry, Jaden Smith, but to a generation of moviegoers, the Karate Kid will always be Daniel-san, a.k.a. Ralph Macchio, the star of the original "Karate Kid." Released 30 years ago this week (on June 22, 1984), "The Karate Kid" hit pop culture with the force of a flying-crane kick to the chin. It launched a franchise that included three sequels (as well as Smith's 2010 reboot), made stars out of Macchio and Elisabeth Shue, earned an Oscar nomination for Noriyuki "Pat" Morita as the wise and gentle Mr. Miyagi, and stands up today as a great family film and one of the most inspirational sports dramas ever made.
Even so, many of its principals were never able to escape completely from the film's shadow. Macchio, for one, will always be remembered first and foremost for his role as bullied teen-turned-karate champ Daniel Larusso - especially since, 30 years later, he still looks like »

CSI: Miami and CSI: New York are no more, soon we’ll have CSI:Cyber but who would have thought that we would still have CSI: Las Vegas? When reviewing CSI: Complete Season 13 the most noticeable thing is it is a show that survives not only by pure popularity, but that it constantly adapts itself, never letting itself stagnate.
Though this is season thirteen (unlucky for some) I’d say that the big difference came in season twelve with Ted Danson and Elisabeth Shue. My initial surprise really was just how good Ted Danson can act now, but in a way his introduction into CSI brought him back into the shows I take time to watch. With the character of D.B. Russell, Danson moved into CSI: Las Vegas and made the role as head of CSI his own, Laurence Fishburne did well and of course we miss William Petersen as Gil »

A Hollywood crowd of about 150 people, including actresses Jennifer Garner, Rita Wilson and Elizabeth Shue, turned out Thursday evening to meet Texas State Senator Wendy Davis and raise money for her gubernatorial bid. With attendees paying between $150 and $25,000 to attend the event, the group gathered on the rooftop of director J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot production studio in Santa Monica. Davis -- known for filibustering a Texas anti-abortion bill -- addressed the crowd for about a half hour. "She talked about the importance of electing more Democratic women to office," said one attendee. "You could see
