Olivia Munn's 37th Birthday Trip Is All About Mariah Carey, Dancing in Bikinis and, Ahem, Melons

5 July 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you want to hang with Olivia Munn, you have to be down for three things: “beach, Mariah, interpretive dancing.” So, is there still room in her squad?

The actress celebrated her 37th birthday over Fourth of July weekend with friends in Turks and Caicos, and the girls’ trip was one for the books. After arriving to her beach house on the Caribbean island, she got down to some serious #MunnInTheSun: eating watermelon poolside, lounging on a chic modern chaise, and putting on an impromptu interpretive dance performance to Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.”

This Canada Day our fine country turns 150 years old! A lot has happened in 150 years, including the rise to stardom of scores of talented Canadian actors and actresses.

She may have earned a name for herself while in Hollywood, but she got her start right here at home. Countless Canadian actors have followed in her footsteps, representing Canadian talent on the world’s biggest stage. Comedy, drama, romance, you name it – Canadian actors have done it all.

10 Movies Perfect for Father's Day

16 June 2017 5:49 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We pick 10 movies that honor the fathers in our lives, but they’re also highly entertaining films that dad himself will enjoy!  

Father's Day is a celebration of the fathers that have positively influenced our lives, as well as the impact of fathers on our society as a whole. To show just how important fathers can be, I selected 10 films where fathers play an important role. In selecting these films, I used two criteria. First, they are movies that celebrate all kinds of dads. Some of these movie dads may be selfish or disillusioned, some don’t have the best relationship with their kids, and some of them might seem like they are doing more harm than good. But despite their weaknesses, they all share one thing in common; an unrelenting love for their children. By contrasting different dads, I wanted these films to show us the many different ways »

The Kardashian sisters take Palm Springs!

On Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian decided to take Khloé on a sister’s vacation to Palm Springs, sans all kids and significant others.

The girls take to the road in black unmarked cars so that paparazzi tail them and they wouldn’t have any distractions.

First stop: Dinosaurs. Then it was off to check out their hotel before heading out to vintage shop.

“We’re going to hit the road. Adventure time,” Kourtney, 38, happily told her sisters about vintage shopping before showing off her new rented red Chevy Bel Air. »

13 Bundy Facts for ‘Married With Children’ 30th Anniversary (Photos)

4 April 2017 4:08 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Married… With Children” was a bona fide franchise hit, with novelizations, comic books, action figures and even a board game based on the TV show released as merchandise. The opening credits for the show’s first four seasons included stock footage of highways, and one familiar family car. The Griswold station wagon is briefly glimpsed in a shot re-purposed from the Chevy Chase comedy “Vacation.” The misanthropic, foul-mouthed, vulgar Bundy clan could be best summed up by the pilot’s original title, “Not the Cosbys.” The sitcom was the first primetime show for Fox, and at 11 seasons total, remains the longest-running show to. »

Santa Clarita Diet Review: Un-Death Becomes Her

3 February 2017 12:21 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It seems impossible that a new television show about the undead could possibly offer anything fresh.

The mere thought of the undead bring up visions of a pleathora of zombie shows already on the air. Whether it's violent horror or light-hearted attempt at comedy, we're already doing it.

But before Netflix's Santa Clarita Diet, Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted), hadn't yet joined the fray. Suddenly the smell of death is sweet again.

There are many ways to look at what Fresco is offering with his look at the sudden eruption of undead in suburbia. It's a reminder that life is short – and ironic, too – since it's often under the worst circumstances that we come to realize the beauty that already surrounds us.

It's also an effective tale of a marriage that needed a boost, a look at commitment and what it's like to stand by your partner through the good times and the really, »
