Kris Jenner got an offer even she didn't see coming.
On Sunday's Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the mother of six receives a letter from a lawyer whose married clients are interested in buying the reality star's eggs, citing that she has an "impressive track record in producing successful and outstanding offspring." Finding the offer flattering, Kris looks into whether she can donate eggs at her age but is told by her doctor that it is not an option.
"It's definitely a compliment that somebody wants to purchase your eggs, but she's 61," Kourtney Kardashian says of the request. "I don't think she has any eggs. That is absolutely ridiculous."

It's a tight race at the top as weekend estimates have Alien: Covenant holding a narrow lead over Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for the #1 spot at the weekend box office. Considering Guardians has been underestimated the past two weekends by $1.46 million and $2.25 million, tomorrow afternoon's actuals will be something to look out for as less than $1 million separates the two films. Meanwhile, WB and MGM's Everything, Everything delivered on the high end of industry expectations while Fox's Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul will be looking to next weekend, hoping the upcoming four-day holiday will improve what was a rather weak debut. At #1, Fox's Alien: Covenant debuted with an estimated $36 million, nearly 43% of which came from its Friday performance, which included $4.2 million from Thursday previews. An opening less than $40 million is somewhat disappointing considering the $51 million opening for its predecessor, Prometheus, five years ago. Yet, the »

At time when we are at war in Syria and our relationship with world leaders could best be described as "iffy," it seems patently obvious that we all need a good laugh. And what better way to do this than with all the 2017 comedy movies coming out this Summer? The theaters are going to be littered with laughs for people young and old, and this might be exactly what is needed.
Making the 2017 Summer comedies stand out is the eclectic nature of the releases. There's tales of Cars trying to show their worth, a Rough Night that would test even Wonder Woman, and a film about the life of an emoji. This doesn't even look at the cutting satire of comedies like War Machine, the screwball tinged The House, and the raw and visceral laughs in a movie like Girls Trip or Rough Night.
What makes a movie really funny? »
The plot is simple: two white women (Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer, our wacky mother-daughter duo) go on a package holiday to Ecuador, where they are snatched (get it?) by a band of brown-skinned thugs. They end up marooned on the Amazon. It’s a “comedy”. Hawn, who hasn’t appeared in a movie since 2002’s The Banger Sisters, came back for this?
“We’re gonna put the fun in non-refundable!” Schumer’s Emily insists. Sadly, there’s very little fun to be found. For a film that tries to assert its girl-power position by way of endless, increasingly crude jokes, it comes down surprisingly hard on its female characters’ bodies and sex lives. Emily’s American ignorance is acknowledged and excused; she’s “never voted” and doesn’t “speak Spanish”. At least she’s not racist, »

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has been the No. 1 movie in America for the past two weekends straight, but Ridley Scott seems poised to take the wheel away from captain James Gunn. That’s because Fox’s “Alien: Covenant” is on track to win its opening weekend with an estimated $40.2 million.
After taking in $4.2 million in Thursday night previews alone, the sixth film in the “Alien” franchise added another $15.35 million to its domestic cume in Friday night showings from 3,761 theaters. Still, the high-flying Marvel-Disney sequel is expected to finish in second at $35.2 million. “Guardians” pulled in another $8.8 million from 4,347 theaters for a grand total of $275.5 million in just three weeks on Friday. »

What to see on the long weekend!What to see on the long weekend!Jenny Bullough5/19/2017 4:32:00 Pm In most of Canada, this weekend marks Victoria Day, the first long weekend of the summer and the unofficial kickoff to the season of patios, barbeques, and cottages. It’s a perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors, and it’s also a perfect opportunity to get caught up on movies! Cineplex theatres are open on the holiday Monday, and if the weather where you are is less than ideal for flipping burgers or enjoying cold beverages, it’s a great time to relax and unwind while you watch a new movie on the big screen. If you plan to head to the theatre this weekend, here are our recommendations! If you’re bringing family Beauty and the Beast If you haven’t yet seen this live-action remake of the classic Oscar-winning animated Disney film, »

That’s more than enough to deny a third straight box office title to Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which is heading for about $32 million at 4,347 sites. The tentpole sequel’s taking in about half of its gross from last weekend and should push “Guardians 2” to nearly $300 million by the end of this weekend — trailing only Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” among 2017 titles.
The launch of Warner Bros.-MGM’s teen romance “Everything, Everything” was performing somewhat above modest estimates with a projection of about $13 million at 2,850 sites. Fox’s debut of family comedy “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul” appeared to be in line with expectations with about $10 million at 3,157 venues. Fox’s second weekend of Amy Schumer- »

Diversity is in the news!
Warner Bros. spent an estimated $145 million on a movie about King Arthur, directed by Guy Ritchie, hoping to have a new tentpole hit like his Sherlock Holmes films. Instead, the movie opened in third place, far behind Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which had already been out for two weeks, and Snatched, starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn.
In other words, a movie based on a male hero of white culture (albeit one with a random but beautiful black man) flopped behind a movie about a multi-racial multi-species space gang and a movie about two women, one of them old enough to have grown children and one of them not conventionally movie-star beautiful.
I’m not here to say that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, failed because it is not a good movie, or that the two other movies I mentioned here are of higher quality. »

In her first appearance since her split from Ben Hanisch, Amy Schumer revealed she prefers a “nice guy” over a bad boy.
The actress and furniture designer, who were together for nearly a year and a half, confirmed their amicable split to People on Tuesday. On Thursday, Schumer, 35, appeared alongside her Snatched costar Goldie Hawn on the U.K.’s Loose Women.
During a game of “What Do You Prefer,” Schumer told the hosts that given the choice between a good guy or bad boy, she prefers the safer option. “I’ll go for nice guy,” she said, according to multiple U. »

Goldie Hawn confirms her first date with Kurt Russell was a memorable one! In April, 66-year-old “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” star Russell was on Harry Connick, Jr.’s talk show when he shared the intimate details of his first date with long-time love Hawn, whom he met on the 1983 set of “Swing Shift”.

Katie Dippold is the screenwriter who gave us The Heat and worked on Ghostbusters and TV’s Parks and Recreation; now she has scripted an action comedy with the neat idea of pairing up Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer as a hopeless mother-daughter duo. Linda and Emily Middleton are two single women going on a highly unwise intergenerational “bonding” vacation in Ecuador. And then something scary happens.
This movie has two sensational gags at the beginning: one with Schumer making conversation while trying on clothes in a store (a supporting cameo here for Katie Dippold herself) and one where Goldie Hawn misunderstands the hotel’s tradition of the welcome cocktail. But, as with most comedies, the material is frontloaded into the premise and the opening 20 minutes. Once the action starts, »

Goldie Hawn returned to the big screen after 15 years in this month's mother-daughter comedy Snatched alongside Amy Schumer. The 71-year-old has been hitting the press rounds hard, and continued her streak of giving insightful, hilarious interviews in the June issue of Harper's Bazaar, out May 23. In addition to looking stunning on the cover, Goldie also showed off a few moves for the inside shot, which calls back to her days as a young go-go dancer and star of the '60s sketch comedy Laugh-In. RelatedGoldie Hawn's Hollywood Evolution Proves Her Life Has Always Been, Well, Golden In her interview, Goldie recalls being approached by the editor of a women's magazine during her time on the show, when she was just 22 years old.

Goldie Hawn is getting candid about her thoughts on aging in show business.
The 71-year-old actress opens up in Harper's Bazaar's June/July issue about her long career, and explains why she isn't angry about ageism when it comes to roles for older actresses.
"You think you're going to fight the system?" she asks. "You think you're going to prove to Hollywood when you hit 45 that you’re still a sexy, viable object? No. There's a certain reality."
"Does it make me angry? No. I’m not an angry person," she adds. "I’m not a militant person. Anger doesn’t get you anywhere. It’s not productive."
As for criticism that she's faced in the types of roles she chooses, such as her ditzy bombshell character in the '60s series Laugh-In, Hawn is similarly »
On Tuesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the Quantico star recalled what it was like to have the 24-year-old singer escort her to fashion's biggest night, noting that while they both got ready at the same hotel, they did not get ready together. In fact, the two agreed to attend the gala together because they were both wearing styles from the Ralph Lauren Collection.
When Cohen asked if there were any "flirtatious vibes" between the good-looking stars, Chopra coyly replied, "We didn't have time yet, maybe next time we meet."
The host pointed out that the Met Gala is several hours long, but the 34-year-old actress noted that she and [link »

The action comedy genre is one that rarely breeds positive results. Comedy so often thrives in subtlety, driven by the characters. When you add action into the narrative, there’s an obligation for laughs to derive from overstated set pieces, absurd situations our calamitous protagonists have gotten themselves into yet again – and what transpires is contrivance, and a lot of it. Jonathan Levine’s Snatched, unfortunately, fails to buck the trend.
Amy Schumer plays Emily Middleton (no relationship to the Princess, believe me) – who is dumped by her boyfriend, leaving her alone in her already booked, forthcoming vacation to Ecuador. No friend seems to fancy the trip, so she settles for her last resort, managing to convince her mother Linda (Goldie Hawn) to do something adventurous for a change, and join her. The pair set off, and while the latter comes equipped with a dog whistle for safety measures, »
