This confirmed what Universal Pictures said all along that "...the scene was shot a bunch of different ways, and we have the best possible version."
The original scene featured Aniston going topless in front of TV news cameras.
"...'George' and 'Linda' are an overextended, stressed out Manhattan couple. After George is downsized out of his job, they find themselves with only one option: to move in with George’s awful brother in Atlanta.
"On the way there, they stumble upon 'Elysium', an idyllic community populated by colorful characters who embrace a different way of looking at things. »

Fifteen years in, a show isn't supposed to be this great.
The first hour of the season opener of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" Wednesday (Sept. 25) is haunting, terrifying and Emmy-worthy. A second, unrelated episode followed, but it's the first half of the premiere, the conclusion to last season's finale, people will be talking about.
When last season ended, serial rapist William Lewis (Pablo Schreiber) had kidnapped Olivia (Mariska Hargitay) after a crime spree that included raping and torturing an older photographer (Judith Ivey).
Cragen (Dann Florek) ordered Benson to take off two days because she was so furious and frustrated that Lewis kept evading prosecution. Benson followed orders and went home -- where Lewis was waiting for her, gun drawn.
When the season opens, Benson is tied up and has duct tape over her mouth. She's woozy from drugs, and her face is swollen and bloodied. She knows »

Amid the desolate Las Vegas skyline, a young single mother must decide what sacrifices need to be made in order for the survival of herself and child in writer/director Bryan Wizemann's feature-length debut film About Sunny, which Austin Film Society will screen Thursday at 7:30 pm in the Afs Screening Room as part of its Best of the Fests series.
The drama, which premiered on the festival circuit under the less emotional and more unfocused title Think of Me, is based on Wizemann's childhood experiences with his single mother in Las Vegas.
As a child of a single mother myself, I was drawn to the relationship between Angela (Lauren Ambrose) and her eight-year-old daughter Sunny, played by newcomer and Texan Audrey P. Scott. The duo's interactions with each other involve relatively little dialogue, and when they are having a conversation it feels trite and one-sided, making it apparent »

On June 12, 1998, Can’t Hardly Wait premiered in theaters. Though it was hardly a runaway hit at the box office, it helped launch the careers of many stars and kicked off several years of highly popular teen films that would be responsible for shaping our high school (and college) years. The film was particularly known for its ensemble cast that was filled with tons of “before they were famous” stars including Jason Segel (Watermelon Guy), Sean Patrick Thomas (Jock Friend) and Ethan Embry (Preston Meyers), who was emerging from a world of child acting into adulthood. Fifteen years later, Embry took the time out of filming a werewolf thriller, Late Phases, to chat with VH1 Celebrity about the vibe on set, his “altered” state and what the movie was actually about.

On June 12, 1998, "Can't Hardly Wait" took teen movies down to Paradise City.
Directed by Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan, the high school comedy is certainly of its era -- not just because of its jokes (lolers here include one-liners about Brad Pitt's relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow and Pearl Jam), but its cast as well. To wit: Jennifer Love Hewitt, at the height of her "Party of Five" powers, is the unattainable attainable dream girl, while Jerry O'Connell and his erstwhile secret identity is the former high school star now in struggling in college (always remember to bring rubber flip-flops for the shower). O'Connell, of course, isn't the only famous face to make a quick appearance in "Can't Hardly Wait" alongside stars Love-Hewitt, Lauren Ambrose, Seth Green and Ethan Embry. To celebrate the film's 15th anniversary, check out 11 other actors who showed up in "Can't Hardly Wait."

While it might not be the definitive high school comedy (that’s a discussion for another time), 1998′s Can’t Hardly Wait is a damn good one, and a strangely enduring new classic. Sure, the nineties-set production is dipped in era-appropriate fashion, slang, and cultural nods (X-Files, anyone?) and its cast is positively peppered by awesomely nineties talents (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ethan Embry, Seth Green, Melissa Joan Hart, the list goes on and on, but Can’t Hardly Wait still feels applicable to teens today. Or, at the very least, it still feels like a very good approximation of the high school experience that we remember. The film turns a staggering fifteen years old this week (it was released on June 12, 1998), and in appreciation of the film that gave us a stoned Jason Segel as “Watermelon Guy,” reaffirmed the cultural relevance of Barry Manilow, and saw the wonderful Lauren Ambrose get hit in the face with a »

Live Athletics: Diamond League, Rome
Round five of the elite athletics series. All eyes, and cameraphones, will be trained as ever on the loping figure of Usain Bolt who, despite recently recording his worst ever 100m final time – a measly 10.09, though he did win the race – is still the man to beat. Elsewhere, Olympic gold medallist Allyson Felix competes in the 200m, while British hopes include Christine Ohuruogu in the 400m, Shara Proctor in the long jump, and Steven Lewis in the pole vault. Gwilym Mumford
The search is on for Britain's Ultimate Shopper, a title that will surely put an end to fears about the dearth of genuine talent on reality TV. »

Chicago – In the annals of bad parenting portrayed on film, the heroine of Bryan Wizemann’s 2011 indie drama is a special case indeed. Though we watch helplessly as she makes countless bad decisions guaranteed to send her young daughter to intensive therapy, we don’t regard her a sinister figure on the order of Monique’s monstrous matriarch in “Precious.” Our gaze is one of empathy.
That’s because Wizemann’s film is remarkably observant in its exploration of the factors that led this single mother, Angela, to commit such desperate acts. She embodies the anxiety and rage of a working class that feels utterly abandoned by its own country. It’s difficult to be a nurturing parent when you’re living from paycheck to paycheck while struggling to keep your head above water in a society consistently at odds with your needs. Yet instead of transforming the tale into a political polemic, »
