Kristen Bell Dresses Up As Mary Poppins, Addresses Her Minimum-Wage Status In Funny Or Die Parody

24 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Kristen Bell plays Mary Poppins in a new Funny or Die skit that has the iconic Disney nanny singing a revised version of "A Spoonful of Sugar" about her minimum wage pay.

Kristen Bell Plays Mary Poppins

Bell, closely resembling Julie Andrews in the 1964 feature film, tells Jane and Michael Banks that she’s quitting the nanny business because, as her tape measurer points out, “Mary Poppins Practically Perfect In Every Way Except Grossly Underpaid. “But you’ve got magical powers,” the kids protest, to which she replies, “You’d think that would entitle me to more than $7.25 an hour.

“Please don’t leave this choice position,” sings Jane, “We will die of malnutrition.”

After telling her ward not to be so dramatic, Mary Poppins launches into her song, singing, "In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun.” Replacing “a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down, »

See Kristen Bell Dress Up as a Politically Active Mary Poppins for Funny or Die Parody

24 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Mary Poppins Quits with Kristen Bell from Funny Or Die Apparently, a spoonful of sugar helps the message go down. That's what Kristen Bell and Funny or Die are hoping at least, with their new Mary Poppins parody about the minimum wage. In the spoof, the Frozen star dresses up as Julie Andrews to sing a little ditty in support of raising the federal minimum wage. "In every job that must be done, you must be paid in more than fun," Bell says. At the current level of $7.25, many domestic workers like Poppins are living below the poverty line, but »

Kristen Bell's Musical Funny or Die Video Will Give You Frozen Flashbacks

24 July 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down - unless you're at Funny or Die, in which case, who cares about sugar? Kristen Bell stars in the site's latest video, singing about the importance of a minimum-wage increase. She's dressed in full-on Mary Poppins gear, and it's both funny and surprisingly informative. I have to say, hearing her hit the high notes here really makes me want to watch Frozen again. Mary Poppins Quits with Kristen Bell from Funny Or Die »

Kristen Bell's Mary Poppins Quits Her Minimum-Wage Job (Video)

24 July 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

You think this economy is giving you the squeeze? Just ask Mary Poppins. The jokesters at Funny or Die imagined how the musical nanny, played by Kristen Bell, would fare in today's economy. In the new video, Bell's Poppins quits her job because apparently Mr. Banks is only paying her the minimum wage. To the tune of the iconic “Just a Spoonful of Sugar,” Bell sings, “Just a three-dollar increase can make a living wage … I don't get these birds for free.” Also Read: Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson Square Off and Meltdown in Funny or Die Play (Video) In addition to letting. »

Mary Poppins gets political in Funny or Die bit starring Kristen Bell

24 July 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In a new Funny or Die short, Frozen star Kristen Bell plays iconic nanny Mary Poppins—and she performs a version of “A Spoonful of Sugar,” but instead of trying to coax children into cleaning their room, the perpetually cheery caregiver is trying to coax the government into raising the minimum wage. Turns out poor Miss Poppins is underpaid, which is, as she puts it as she opens her broken umbrella, “supercalifragilisticexpiali-bulls–t.” »

Kristen Bell Sounds Great As Mary Poppins in This Mary Poppins Parody

24 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Parodies are fun and all, but let's not hide the fact that Kristen Bell sounds great as Mary Poppins. It's actually quite distracting from the song's main purpose, which appears to be something about raising mimimum wage. Mary is quitting unless you give her more money, but Bell would probably consider doing a live version of Mary Poppins for NBC. Whaddaya say, NBC? »

Bethenny Frankel is proving a point once more through her clothing choices. This past Sunday, the former Real Housewives of New York City star started some controversy after putting up a picture of herself in her four-year-old daughter's Hello Kitty pajamas, and asked if they were ready to share clothes.

Many of her followers saw this is a negative body-image message for her daughter, but Frankel responded on Twitter by saying her daughter asked her to put on the pajamas.

When Aliens Invade: 8 Great Invasion Movies

9 July 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The alien invasion scenario is a common one in cinema – and for good reason. If movies are a mirror, reflecting social anxieties and regrets, then the alien invasion trope is one of the most adaptable allegories imaginable. For decades, filmmakers have used it to discuss military policies, fear of technology and concern over environmental abuses. Our scientific progress as a species, in conflict with the moral progress of our conscience, and our natural fear of change, are all to be found in the alien invasion movie. There are three main types of cinematic alien invasion – each serving a different purpose – although variations and combinations do occasionally appear. These are Occupation, Infiltration and Raid.

The Occupation alien invasion movie addresses two main concerns about the human condition. First, are the films featuring aliens that want our planet, and are entirely disinterested in us. We are inconsequential, and serve no purpose. We »

Academy Salutes Designers in Hollywood Costume Exhibit

8 July 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences will present 145 pieces of film history in the exhibition Hollywood Costume, which is the organization’s first, and probably last, show at the May Co. space.

The show, running Oct. 2-March 2, includes works representing 25 Oscar winners for costume design, as well as such notable pieces as the original ruby slippers from “The Wizard of Oz” (Adrian, 1939), which the Academy hails as “the most famous shoes in the world.”

The multimedia exhibit was organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London, and then showed at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Australian Centre of the Moving Image and Phoenix Art Museum. This is the final stop, and the Academy has added more than 30 costumes from recent films for this show. The new additions include Jared Leto’s costume from “Dallas Buyers Club” (designed by Kurt & Bart) – a recent acquisition from the »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

10 Great Fireworks Scenes from Movies

4 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Happy 4th of July everyone! It's not hard to imagine that my favorite part about this holiday is the fireworks! I love lighting them up and watching them go off. I even attempted to make my own at one point… I'll never do that again. As a tribute to this patriotic American holiday celebrating our independence, I've put together a top 10 list of great fireworks scenes from the movies. 

The Sandlot

This is by far one of the most American 4th of July scenes ever put on film. You've got a group of kids playing baseball in the 1950s on the 4th of July. 

An American Tail

Behold, the Giant Mouse of Minsk! This scene is both thrilling and incredibly scary. It's such a cool fireworks scene though.

To Catch a Thief

Alfred Hitchcock was a filmmaking genius, and this scene features fireworks going on in the background as Cary Grant »

Gor blimey! Us stars attempt the English accent - Best and worst

3 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Beginning tonight at 9pm, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars in BBC Two's new eight-part thriller The Honourable Woman.

In the drama from The Shadow Line writer Hugo Blick, New York-born Maggie boasts an impressive English accent in her role as Nessa Stein.

This got us to thinking - which other Us stars have attempted to mimic the Brit twang... and how did they fare?

Gillian Anderson - The Fall

Bit of a cheat, this one. If you've ever wondered how Chicago-born X-Files star Anderson manages to pull off that flawless English intonation in the BBC's The Fall and Great Expectations, it's more than just her considerable acting talent - Gillian spent her childhood in the United Kingdom and continues to divide her time between England and the States.

Gwyneth Paltrow - Sliding Doors

Gwynnie's near-perfect cutglass vocals would end up winning her an Oscar in 1998's Shakespeare in Love, but the »
