Shirtless Mario Lopez Still Has the Muscles to Make Your Jaw Drop
You may have fallen in love with Mario Lopez as swoon-worthy A.C. Slater in '90s classic Saved by the Bell, and over two decades later, the time has come to reexamine Mario's good looks. On Saturday, the heartthrob looked hotter than ever during a beach day in Miami. While revealing his sexy V-lines in a turquoise bathing suit that hung just low enough, Mario took a dip in the ocean and gave his legs a good burn with a run in the sand. The Extra host also made time for wife Courtney Mazza, holding hands and snapping selfies with her. While it might look like the couple is on a romantic vacation, Mario is actually in town to take on grand marshal duties at the Miami Beach Gay Pride parade on Sunday. Pda aside, it's still been an exciting time for Mario, who took us behind the scenes

Mario Lopez: "I Wasn't In Love" With Ex-Wife Ali Landry

  • TooFab
Mario Lopez:
Mario Lopez is airing even more of his dirty laundry! In his new memoir, "Just Between Us," the "Extra" host reveals details about what went wrong in his relationship with ex-wife Ali Landry.The couple's 2004 marriage lasted less than two weeks after Lopez was caught cheating on Landry during his bachelor party. While the main cause of the split was his infidelity, the actor says there was more to the story. "I thought this was the girl," he wrote. "If I wrote down the criteria of what I wanted in a wife and a mother — back then — she seemed to be it. She was a model, so she always had good style, she knew how to dress. And she was Catholic, very driven, ambitious, hardworking — but also charming and innocent at the same time. I could have been looking at a lot of criteria that were more on the surface than not.

9 Things Revealed by Lifetime's 'Saved by the Bell' Movie

9 Things Revealed by Lifetime's 'Saved by the Bell' Movie
Lifetime achieved the best and worst possible results with "The Unauthorized 'Saved by the Bell' Story," a TV movie that premiered last night: It wasn't exactly a cringe-inducing retelling of Dustin Diamond's memoir about his time as Screech on "Saved by the Bell," but it wasn't titillating or scandalous either. The movie had the stench of looming legal ramifications, as if the producers were terrified of Tiffani(-Amber) Thiessen and Mario Lopez arriving with defamation suits at any moment. (That makes sense considering the original memoir contains its fair share of serious accusations.) Subsequently, the only cast member with any dirt to spill was Diamond, whose woes were still pretty mundane as depicted. In other words: We weren't so excited or so scared, and we needed a few hundred caffeine pills just to stay awake during this damn movie.  But we did pick up a few interesting

Review: Honey 2

  • Pure Movies
This is the Pure Movies review of Honey 2, directed by Bille Woodruff and starring Katerina Graham, Seychelle Gabriel, Mario López, Randy Wayne, Audrina Patridge, Melissa Molinaro, Brandon Molale, Lonette McKee and Laurieann Gibson. If only all disputes in life could be solved with a good old dance-off. The unrest in the Middle East would evaporate in the twist of a hip, the coalition government's slick routine would have an enthralled country bobbing their heads in thrilled agreement and Ryan Giggs would be shaking his Lycra-clad booty to the sickest beats the tabloids could throw at him. Of course, dance-offs raise a few too many problems for the less rhythmic among us - not least, how do you know for sure who wins?

This week's new film

Kaboom (15)

(Gregg Araki, 2010, Us) Thomas Dekker, Haley Bennett, Juno Temple, Chris Zylka, Roxane Mesquida. 86 mins

This could be the best teen movie of the year, or at least the horniest, surely. Set on a sunny Californian college campus with a "beautiful people only" admissions policy, it's a poppy pick'n'mix of uninhibited bi-curious couplings (and triplings), hallucinogenic drug experiences and strange, supernatural events, but none of this is treated as in any way edgy or shocking. Instead, it's warm, witty and guilt-free, even as it gets increasingly, apocalyptically bonkers – prime cult material!

Kung Fu Panda 2 (PG)

(Jennifer Yuh, 2011, Us) Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman. 90 mins

Does the sequel do what you'd expect? Do pandas defecate in the bamboo forest? Actually they don't in this anthropomorphised action animation, but it's a fun and lively tribute to old-school martial arts movies with some darker shadings than its predecessor.

Mother's Day (18)

Review: Get Him To The Greek

  • Pure Movies
This is the Pure Movies review of Get Him To The Greek by critic Dan Higgins. The film stars Russell Brand, Jonah Hill, Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Moss, Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs, Colm Meaney with cameos from Zoe Salmon, Lars Ulrich, Mario López, Pink, Billy Bush, Kurt Loder, Christina Aguilera and is directed by Judd Apatow favourite and Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller. Brand’s performance is more than worthy of the lead role and, it is reminder, that he is a very good actor and, along with Hill who deserves his fair share of the plaudits, it is this screwball-buddy-relationship that brings the film above the level of just another gross-out comedy. Brand is wild, rebellious and utterly irrational; every inch of the moral fibre that makes up his rock star. There may be some who will say how close this particular character resembles his true persona but,

Get Him to the Greek, the outrageous new Rock 'n Roll comedy from Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nick Stoller, is set to make its DVD and Blu-ray debut next week, arriving in a two-disc unrated edition on September 28th. Reuniting Forgetting Sarah Marshall's Russell Brand and Jonah Hill, the insane plot of this wacky road trip adventure finds lowly record company intern Aaron Green forced to retrieve suicidal and eternally blitzed rock god Aldus Snow from London and bring him back to the Greek theater in Los Angeles for a comeback concert. With only 72 hours to get the task done, luck definitely is not on Mr. Green's side.

Nick Stoller talks Stretch ArmstrongGet Him to the Greek arrives on DVD and Blu-ray September 28th, and to help launch the release, director Nick Stoller stopped by to chat about his latest comedy. He was also nice enough to take a few moments out of his time to talk about some of his other upcoming projects including The Muppets and the superhero flick Stretch Armstrong, which is based on the popular Hasbro doll from the late 70s and stars Taylor Lautner in the lead role. We learned quite a bit about this upcoming project from Nick, who was in the midst of working on the Stretch Armstrong screenplay as we chatted with him.

Here is our conversation:

I see that you're writing Stretch Armstrong. Is this something that is actually going to happen soon?

Nick Stoller: I have (the script) open on my computer right now. Rob Letterman is directing.
