“Live at the Foxes Den” is a film with a noir soul trapped in an episode of “Glee” as told by Instagram. First-time writer-director Michael Kristoff and writer/co-star Jack Holmes serve up Jackson Rathbone as a wannabe-Sinatra-type lounge singer in this tale of a man with a past, but the film is rather reminiscent of Joan Cusack’s line of advice in “Working Girl”: “Sometimes I sing and dance around the house in my underwear. Doesn’t make me Madonna. Never will.” “Foxes Den” debuts day-and-date on VOD and in 13 markets including Los Angeles and New York on Dec. 6. It’ll soon arrive at a Redbox kiosk near you.
The film is bookended by the arrival of a mysterious package, which turns out to be intended for youthful-looking attorney Bobby (Rathbone, from the “Twilight” series), who opens it and furrows an unlined brow, accompanied by a portentous orchestral crescendo. »

Hard to believe it's been 30 years since the Griswold family first took to the road in "National Lampoon's Vacation." Ever since its release on July 29, 1983, the landmark comedy seems a permanent fixture of pop culture, having created the signature roles of Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, and Randy Quaid's careers, having helped make stars out of Anthony Michael Hall and Jane Krakowski, and having helped launch the filmmaking career of John Hughes. The movie seems to play on an endless loop on TV, like the neighbors' slideshow of a nightmarish trip you were grateful not to have taken yourself. (Except, let's face it, you probably have a family road trip this disastrous in your past.)
Still, as many times as you've seen the film, there are some details you may have missed. Read on to learn about the in-jokes you haven't spotted, the scenes you didn't get to see, »

Myers is known to have fallen out with Spheeris over editing decisions of the first film, while he later blocked her directing the sequel.
However, there was no signs of any issues with the filmmakers on stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday (April 23), states The Hollywood Reporter.
The two reunited at a special screening and panel discussion, programmed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, celebrating the 21st anniversary of "Wayne's World." They were joined by co-star Rob Lowe, director Penelope Spheeris, producer Lorne Michaels and executive producer (and current Academy president) Hawk Koch.
Myers and Spheeris had a falling out following "Wayne's World" after the director accused the comedian of vetoing her from directing the movie's sequel. In a 2008 interview, Spheeris admitted to "hating" Myers for years following the movie. Meanwhile, Carvey allegedly believes that Myers took one of his characters to use as the voice of Dr. Evil in the "Austin Powers" series.
Moderated by Koch, the panel mostly avoided discussing any hot button topics, instead focusing on the characters' rise to »

Koch will introduce the evening, while the other four will discuss the making of Ww. (Pictured above: Myers, Carvey in Wayne's World. Please scroll down to check out more Ww images.) Myers, later best known for providing his voice in the animated feature Shrek and for the satire Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, launched his film-star career alongside fellow Saturday Night Live comedian Dana Carvey. The big-screen Wayne's was a version of the duo's TV comedy sketch about two dumb, ugly, metal-head teenagers, Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar, who are the hosts »

The story is essentially a hybrid of a sequel and a reboot, with Ed Helms portraying a grown-up Rusty Griswold, who takes his own family on a vacation to Walley World, just like his childhood trip portrayed in 1983's Vacation. Christina Applegate will play Rusty's wife who may be losing interest in her husband.
The character Rusty Griswold was portrayed by a number of very different actors throughout the original franchise, including Anthony Michael Hall in Vacation, Jason Lively in European Vacation, Johnny Galecki in Christmas Vacation, and Ethan Embry in Vegas Vacation.
