Selena Gomez Breaks Her Own Rotten Tomatoes Record With a Zero for ‘Behaving Badly’

1 hour ago

Selena Gomez might want to stay away from the internet for a few weeks because the reviews for her new comedy are in and they're awful. The 22-year-old stars as Nina Pennington in “Behaving Badly,” which hit select theaters Friday and was promptly panned by every single critic who reviewed it. To be fair, Rotten Tomatoes only has 10 reviews up so the opinion could certainly evolve in a more favorable direction. Improbably enough, this isn't the first time Gomez has found herself dredging the gutter of the popular review aggregate. As TheWrap previously reported, her 2013 flop “The Getaway,” which co-starred Ethan. »

2 hours ago

I had the pleasure of spending time with Eli Wallach because his daughter Roberta, also a fine actress, is a good friend whose voice has been heard in every documentary I have made.
