'White Collar' Season 3 premiere: A 'Phoebe Cates' and the stolen Nazi loot

7 June 2011 8:17 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

After last season's cliffhanger of priceless Nazi-plundered art seemingly going ka-boom, then popping up in a storage locker from an anonymous source, the "White Collar" Season 3 premiere is back and guess who stole the art? Mozzie. Which should have come as less of a surprise than it did, I think.

Mozzie comes clean as the thief to Neal and they decide to run with the loot. Peter's big clue to who stole the stuff is the scrap of one of Neal's paintings he saw at the explosion. It turns out Mozzie used Neal's art in the swap so the forensic tests would find paint and canvas in the warehouse and Neal is sweating. Peter can't go to the Bureau with his suspicions yet, so Elle offers to call in a favor at a gallery to test the scrap and see if it's old or new.

Guys Choice Awards: Blake Griffin, Judge Reinhold and more talk man-crushes

6 June 2011 5:13 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

It was a guys' night out on Saturday (June 4) at Spike TV's annual "Guys Choice Awards." Among the honorees of the evening were "Funniest Mother F***er" Jim Carrey, "Rookie of the Year" Blake Griffin and "Brass Balls" recipient, Keith Richards.

Zap2it was on the red carpet asking a few of the attendees about some of their biggest man-crushes. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.

We can think of plenty of guys who have a man crush on L.A. Clipper, Griffin, but when we spoke with the him, the athlete revealed a soft spot for teammate DeAndre Jordan. The two arrived, walked the carpet and sat together during the show. Dare we call them "dates?"

"Reno 911's" Tom Lennon and Ben Garant were amped to present the "Manvention of the Year" award for 3D Japanese pornography... or something. [Related: Stay tuned for our "Being a Girl at Guys Choice" perspective post coming later this week.]

Choice Moments: Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn Reunite, Justin Timberlake Talks Dirty

5 June 2011 11:47 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's nice to know that Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson are handling their breakup pretty well. At least that's what it seemed like last night at the taping of Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards… Penn was on hand for the induction of Fast Times at Ridgemont High into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame, while ScarJo hit the stage with her Avengers costar Chris Evans (looking super cute in a pair of Simon Spurr jeans, by the way) to honor the U.S. military. Penn and Johansson ran into each other backstage. "Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn took a pic together backstage," tweeted my pal Jared Eng of Just Jared.

Jennifer, Ben, Jt, and Cameron Make For a Rowdy Guys Choice Awards

5 June 2011 11:19 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

The Sony lot in Culver City was transformed into a mix of Key West and Havana Cuba last night for the fifth annual Guys Choice Awards. It's always an unconventional affair and last night was no different, with Cameron Diaz kicking things off in a sexy sheer suit and setting up the evening with a few rules a la Bad Teacher. She came out again later to present Jim Carrey with the Funniest MFer award, and he pushed the boundaries with his acceptance speech. Justin Timberlake preached to the crowd about finding the Holy Grail of Hotness winner, his Friends With Benefits costar Mila Kunis, who defeated Minka Kelly for the crown. It was Jennifer Aniston, however, who got the ultimate accolades for her sexy status: the Decade of Hotness award. She thanked her yoga teacher for keeping her in such great shape and gave big hugs to all her Horrible Bosses costars, »

Penn And Johansson Avoid Reunion At Guys' Choice Awards

5 June 2011 7:06 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Newly single stars Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson avoided a face-to-face reunion on Saturday as the former lovers both attended the Spike Guys' Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

The actors were said to have enjoyed a brief romance before news of the break-up emerged earlier this week.

But there was no awkward meet-up at the glitzy California bash - Johansson walked the red carpet, while Penn arrived late to accept an award from Robert De Niro as his 1982 movie Fast Times At Ridgemont High was inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.

Johansson opted not to talk about her love life to reporters and instead turned the focus onto her latest movie project.

She told, "I just flew in from New Mexico, where I've been shooting The Avengers. A bunch of the cast is here tonight but I'm here to support the troops. (Co-star) Chris Evans and I are presenting. We're right in the middle of scenes and figuring a lot of stuff out. I've been training a lot and doing all sorts of exercises."

The evening saw Justin Timberlake present his Friends with Benefits co-star Mila Kunis with the Holy Grail of Hotness Award, while Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards stepped onstage to accept the humorously titled Brass Balls Award, as well as a literary prize for his autobiography, Life.

Jim Carrey took home the Funniest M.F. Award, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was named the Biggest Ass Kicker and British model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley picked up the Our New Girlfriend trophy.

Mark Wahlberg, who turns 40 on Sunday, kicked off his celebrations early as he was named Guy of the Year and his movie The Fighter was branded Guy Movie of the Year.

Pineapple Express star Danny McBride was hailed the Comedy Mvp, while Modern Family TV babe Sofia Vergara accepted the Hot and Funny prize, and Jennifer Aniston was lauded with the Decade of Hotness title. »

Hey Bud! Guys Choice Awards to Reunite 'Fast Times' Gang

3 June 2011 3:56 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

The cast of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" will reunite to party at the Guys Choice Awards. Jeff Spicoli would most definitely approve.

Sean Penn, Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer, Forest Whitaker and director Amy Heckerling will be present at Spike TV's Guy Choice Awards to witness "Fast Times" being inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame, according to Inside TV.

Hopefully, they'll play Sammy Hagar's title song as they approach the stage. Or at least Billy Squier's "Fast Times (The Best Years of Our Lives)."

Bummer, though, that Stacy and Linda won't be able to make it, as Jennifer Jason Leigh is in New York starring in a Broadway production of "The House of Blue Leaves" and Phoebe Cates is unavailable.

We wonder if Phoebe still has that red bathing suit? We wonder that quite often, actually...

The Guys Choice Awards will air on Spike TV on Friday, »

'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' reunion? Spike to honor film with Guys Choice Award

3 June 2011 2:53 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn may have called it quits, but they'll still both be on hand for Saturday's taping of the Spike Guys Choice Awards.

Johansson is signed on to present (along with Justin Timberlake, Jason Bateman, Eva Mendes and more), but now EW is reporting that Penn will be on hand to be inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.

"Fast Times at Ridgemont High" will reportedly be honored at the testosterone fueled award ceremony. Penn will be joined by director Amy Heckerling and castmates Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus, Brian Backer and Forest Whitaker.

If you thought this couldn't get any cooler, you'd be wrong. The award will be doled out by none other than Robert De Niro, who will also be presenting Keith Richards with the coveted Brass Balls award.

Shannon Elizabeth Caves In and Completes ‘American Reunion’ Cast

27 May 2011 10:57 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

An American Pie movie just isn’t the same without the entire cast. Watching one without all of its key members is like squeezing blood from a stone. American Reunion has locked in the original cast members from American Pie for the eighth film in the franchise.

If you missed the last four spin-offs (American Pie Presents: Bandcamp, The Nake Mile, Beta House and The Book of Love) that’s because they went straight to video, but fear not, Everyone is back for the Reunion. Shannon Elizabeth (That 70′s Show) was one of the last holdouts–probably because (we’re guessing) she’d have to get nude–but signed to join co-stars Jason Biggs (Mad Love), Chris Klein (We Were Soldiers), Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother), Thomas Ian Nicholas (Let the Game Begin), Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Dad), Natasha Lyonne (Blade: Trinity), Seann William Scott (Role Models, Goon »

Bad Movies We Love: Shanghai Surprise

25 May 2011 8:00 AM, PDT | Movieline | See recent Movieline news »

I tried so hard to find an Oprah-themed Bad Movie We Love this week. Bad news, my darlings: they're all not good enough. Beloved is too boring, Native Son is too serious, and The Color Purple is too funny. (Trust me.) So I rallied and made big choices. This week I'm commemorating Tree of Life star Sean Penn's filthy past and Oprah's biggest finale guest: the ineffable, the insufferable, La Sleaza Bonita herself, Madonna. Read: This Is A Great Day. And the movie is a legend among awful, latrine-stink cinema, a rancid little misfortune cookie called Shanghai Surprise. Or as I prefer to call it: Not-So-Fast Times with Frigid Wife. »

New Release: Fast Times at Ridgemont High Blu-ray

11 May 2011 12:08 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

That classic high school movie, 1982’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High, will arrive on Blu-ray on Aug. 9 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Sean Penn is wasted as Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Fast Times remains the definitive film about American high school life in the 1980s and stars such soon-to-be-popular performers as Sean Penn (Fair Game), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Greenberg), Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas), Forest Whitaker (Repo Men), Eric Stoltz (TV’s Caprica) and the very hot Phoebe Cates (Gremlins).

But the film also had comedy pedigree behind the camera. The movie was directed by Amy Heckerling (European Vacation) and written by Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous) based on his own book.

The Blu-ray won’t have any new special features, but it will have the extras from the Collector’s Edition DVD released in 2003:

Disney's 'Prom': Can the House of Mouse tell an edgy teen story without sex, nudity or drugs?

29 April 2011 7:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

There were plenty of doubters when Disney said last year that the new film Prom aspired to follow the tradition of John Hughes and Cameron Crowe. Studio chairman Rich Ross said he wanted the movie to be “honest and authentic,” an announcement that would make any of the kids from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Breakfast Club, or any of those daring — and, in hindsight, extremely risque — ’80s teen flicks say, “Yuh, sure.”

Could the home of the ultra-peppy High School Musical franchise tell a heartfelt high school story without an R-rating?

That’s the question faced by director »

Five 1980s Flicks That Need Sequels (Other Than Bill & Ted)—Like Totally for Sure!

26 April 2011 7:08 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Per the late-breaking tweet from Bill, er, Alex Winter, the semi-long-planned new Bill & Ted sequel is coming together.  With that project (and Keanu Reeves) in a good place, it's time to turn our attention to more pressing matters. Like, which other seminal 1980s films should be sequelized before we get too bogged down in mid-1990s nostalgia: 1. Return of the Jedi: One, the prequels weren't sequels. Two, they weren't any good. Three, we're owed. Four, we want to know what happened to Han and Leia, but we don't want to read the books. (Do we look like geeks to you?) Five, we have no idea how we'd cast. Six, that's not our problem. 2. Fast Times at Ridgemont High: We are »

Tff'11: James Westby's Rid Of Me

22 April 2011 12:10 AM, PDT | Screen Comment | See recent Screen Comment news »

By Sam Weisberg - April 22, 2011

At the beginning of James Westby's “Rid of Me,” a frowning, diminutive thirty-something woman—rendered alarmingly feline by bursts of Goth makeup—and an icy blonde princess stride past each other, in slow motion, in a supermarket. “You bitch,” the blonde mutters under her breath. Upon which, the Goth girl, without breaking a sweat, jams her hands down her skirt and smears menstrual blood all over the blonde's face.

This prologue is, like much of the rest of “Rid of Me,” jarringly funny yet punishingly shrill. Westby has a great deal of malicious, playful energy; his sheer joy at making this movie electrifies almost every frame. But though you share in his enthusiasm at times, Westby is ultimately hampered by the same hyperkinetic overconfidence that marred “Run Lola Run” and similar movies; it confuses breathlessness with boldness. The movie needs a massive dose of Ritalin. »

Screw The Potheads, Four Normal Dudes I'd Get High With For 4-20 And One Moron

Ask potheads which movie character they.d most like to get high with and at least half the time you.ll hear Cheech and Chong or Jeffrey .The Dude. Lebowski. On the one hand, it makes sense given been long exalted as great advocates for the weed cause, but on the other hand, it makes no goddamn sense whatsoever. If you could have sex with any woman in the world, would you really pick a porn star? If you could get drunk with any person in history, would you pick a known alcoholic? I certainly wouldn.t. Fast Times At Ridgemont High.s Spicolli might be fun to watch on film, but in real life, I wouldn.t have the slightest interest in passing him a joint and hearing him talk about how worthless Us History is. The same thing goes for Slater from Dazed And Confused and »
