Overboard Remake Happening with Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez

Overboard Remake Happening with Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez
MGM has brought on Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez to star in the studio's remake of the 1987 comedy classic Overboard, which starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Pantelion Films is also producing this comedy remake, which is already aiming to start production this May in Vancouver. This new comedy takes the conceit from the original classic, though and turns it on its ear.

The original movie followed Goldie Hawn as a snobby, wealthy woman who suffers a head injury when she falls off of her yacht, and is taken to the hospital by a working-class carpenter, played by Kurt Russell. When she wakes up in the hospital, she has amnesia, with the carpenter convincing the woman that she is his wife. This reboot flips the script, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Eugenio Derbez playing a spoiled playboy from one of Mexico's wealthiest families, who falls off his yacht and becomes convinced by a single,

Friends Ugly Naked Guy Identity Finally Revealed

NBC's iconic sitcom Friends is considered by many to be one of the best comedy shows ever, with a legacy that has stood the test of time, even 12 years after the show went off the air. The cast made headlines earlier this year when they reunited for an NBC special honoring longtime TV director James Burrows. While the show continues to enjoy a huge fan base, there is one mystery that fans have been seeking the answer to, which has finally been revealed.

The Huffington Post conducted a year-long investigation into the identity of the character known as "Ugly Naked Guy." The character was often referred to on the show, but he only appeared in two episodes, and his face was never shown. The show never credited the role to any actor, and no one came forward. A popular Friends TV Show Wikia site credited actor Mike Hagerty, who also played Mr.

Lucky Louie, Ep. 1.12, “Kim Moves Out”

Lucky Louie, Season 1, Episode 12: “Kim Moves Out”

Written by Louie C.K.

Directed by Andrew D. Weyman

Aired on August 27th, 2006 on HBO

“Kim Moves Out” is the final episode of Lucky Louie aired by HBO during the show’s initial run (there’s an unaired episode released with the DVD set which I’ll review next week), and it was a fitting way for the sitcom to go out. Lucky Louie had a remarkably inconsistent first and only season, and “Kim Moves Out” comes across as the perfect ending due to the light it sheds on both what made the show so good and what made it so bad. As harsh as I’ve been on Lucky Louie, it’s hard not to see any potential in its concept, and this episode features some perfect examples of the style realized at its finest. On the other hand, Lucky Louie

"Speed 3"--Winner of my 1999 contest

No favorable review I've ever written has inspired more disbelief than my three stars for "Speed 2." Even its star, Sandra Bullock, started mentioning in interviews her disgust with herself for agreeing to star in it. It's frequently cited as an example of what a lousy critic I am. (Note well: Siskel also gave it thumbs up.) All the same, I'm grateful to movies that show me what I haven't seen before, and "Speed 2" had a cruise ship plowing right up the main street of a Caribbean village. In the spring of 1999, at the University of Colorado's Conference on World Affairs, I argued that movies like this weren't as easy to make as it might appear. In a moment of madness I announced in self defense a contest for a new "Speed 3." The rules were: It should be on VHS, no longer than five minutes long, and must involve something that cannot stop moving.

Louie Premieres On FX, Instantly Justifies Season Pass

Louis C.K.’s new show Louie premiered on FX last night with back-to-back half-hour episodes, and after a tense 60 minutes of doing my usual “really want to like this” versus “I hope I don’t just pretend to like this because I love Louis C.K. and want to enjoy anything he does” tension, I can happily say that the show more than earned itself a Season Pass from the get-go. My reviewy-type thoughts on the Louie premiere, after the jump: Louis C.K.’s prior attempt at a personal tv show, HBO’s Lucky Louie, failed the aforementioned test; as much as I wanted to like it, and it certainly did have its legit moments (and veteran character-actor Mike Hagerty was awesome), the three-camera sitcom format really put a lot of pressure on the actors, and the show just never felt comfortable. The discrepancy between the wacky stock-sitcom format and the mature,
