“Live from New York, it’s the Tribeca Film Festival.”
I’m sure that is how some people’s coverage of this year’s Tff started off. It makes sense considering the opening night film was a documentary about Saturday Night Live! Plus, some writers can’t help but resort to puns and cheap gimmicks to appear witty. Hell, I used it and haven’t even seen the film yet. But my TriBeCa experience didn’t start off with belly laughs. Instead it began with a double feature of films about shitty parents.
The Adderall Diaries stars James Franco as an author struggling with writer’s block, which could be the inspiration for my deconstruction of an opening to this recap. The film is based on the memoir of the same title by Stephen Elliott. Franco’s version of Elliott deals with drug addiction (mostly Adderall), a Bdsm fetish that could ruin a burgeoning relationship, »

Cougar Town just aired its final episode on Tuesday, but it seems Courteney Cox is already onto bigger and better things. No, sadly, she's not orchestrating a Friends reunion. But she is releasing her big directorial debut. The new flick is called Just Before Go, and it's certainly a bit of a change for the actress. The film follows Ted Morgan (played by American Pie's Seann William Scott), a depressed man who's returned to his hometown to settle up a few scores before comitting suicide. See? Dark. But Just Before I Go isn't all tears—there's a good amount of that signature Courteney Cox irreverent humor. There's the run-in with Ted's »
Some flights are annoying and horrible. And some flights become the starting point of a wild and crazy adventure. Enter rapper Crichy Crich and Tara Reid. Crichy Crich was on a Virgin America flight flying back to Los Angeles from Miami, where he attended the Ultra Music Festival, when he ultimately ended up meeting the American Pie star and getting her name tattooed on him! Wait, what?! Yeah, we couldn't make this up. Clearly, a lot of questions arise, so luckily Crich filled E! News in on everything that went down that magical day (and yes, he says a lot of alcohol was involved). "Virgin Airlines has this thing where you can invite people to a chat on their seats. Me and my buddy Ross thought it »
Tara Reid is making headlines after photos of the 39-year-old actress showing off her bikini bod on the beach in Miami surfaced today. The images, which see the Sharknado star all smiles as she flaunts her figure, have sparked concern among fans due to Reid's alarmingly thin frame. Sporting a colorful bikini and makeup at the beach, the American Pie star, who is no stranger to posting swimsuit shots, displayed her super-skinny thighs and her extremely tiny shape while strolling on the beach.

Just beachy! Tara Reid made a splash in Miami on Monday, March 30, when she threw on a bikini and hit up the coast for some sun, sand, and surf. The American Pie alum, 39, displayed her thin frame in a paisley and pink-striped two-piece bathing suit, which boasted a plunging halter-style top and matching low-slung bottoms. Her long blonde hair hung straight down her back, and she wore a silver watch and heart-shaped necklace with neon-green nail polish. Reid looked thinner than she has in recent months [...] »
"It can be fun, but it's not a game... What you want is a partner to return the ball."
You know the lovable father from "American Pie" (1999)? Turns out, he was originally super creepy. The part of Jim's dad, played by veteran actor Eugene Levy, was mostly improvised to give him that "real, corny dad" feel. And thankfully, we still got plenty of amazing -- and awkward -- moments from the goofy patriarch.

At last, the question on everyone’s lips has been answered! At least, the Star Wars-related question. The one related to the Star Wars spin-off films. Which were strongly rumoured amidst the news that Disney had bought the rights to George Lucas’s space opera franchise of diminishing returns, and finally confirmed a while ago now.
Then the slow drip of news came through, with American Pie and The Golden Compass’s Chris Weitz in line to write one of the multiple spin-offs, and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards all set up to direct. That was all anyone knew, however, with the rumours as to their plots being everything from a Young Han Solo story to a bounty hunter team up.

Born on the 24th March 1974 (making her forty years old, can you believe that?!), in Washington D.C., Alyson Hannigan is the daughter (and only child) of Emilie Haas, a Jewish real estate agent, and Al Hannigan, a truck driver with Irish ancestry. Her parents divorced when she was just two years old and she was brought up by her mother in Atlanta, Georgia as a result.
Hannigan began performing very early – even as a baby she appeared in photoshoots and an instructional video for parenting – and started appearing in commercials when she was just four years old.
After a handful of minor television jobs, she made her first major film appearance in 1988’s My Stepmother Is An Alien, in which she starred alongside the likes of Kim Basinger, Dan Aykroyd and Seth Green – the latter whom played her boyfriend, just like he would go on to do »

So…Tara Reid is sporting a whole new look! The Sharknado star posted a photo of herself on Instagram that showed her arms and neck completely covered in tattoos. Reid seems to be sporting the ink temporarily for a new project, however, and isn't jumping onto the permanent bandwagon just yet. "Thank you @hannyeisen for your awesome tattoo make up for me it's awesome you're the best," the blond actress wrote alongside the snapshot. Eisen, who works as a body painter and makeup artist, also shared a picture of the American Pie star flaunting her latest accessories. "Somebody really likes her new ink," she explained before giving a shoutout to all of the »
The Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off, which will be the first big screen movie in the franchise not to be included as part of a trilogy, is heating up and should start shooting this spring for a 2016 release date. It will go into production at Pinewood Studios in England just as Spectre begins to wrap. As you may know, original screenwriter Gary Whitta was recently replaced by American Pie co-creator Chris Weitz. Now, speaking with /film about his work on Disney's live-action Cinderella, the writer opens up about this first in a long line of planned Star Wars standalone movies, and he tells fans to 'expect everything!'
Chris Weitz doesn't go into specifics about the storyline, but we've heard recently that the movie will either involve a young Han Solo, Boba Fett, space pirates, or a spy mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. In fact, »
Some of the greatest (or at least heavily favored) American television shows got the big screen treatment when they were selected to have their small screen following turn into a cinematic experience. Unfortunately, for every beloved nostalgic television show that translated successfully in movie theaters (The Brady Bunch Movie, Star Trek, Batman, etc.) there are boob tube stinkers that overtake the good crop. Sure, there are middle-of-the-road movie adaptations of television programs that have a mixed bag reception (1997’s Leave It To Beaver, 1987’s Dragnet, 2012’s Dark Shadows, etc.). Nevertheless, it is always the unflattering fare that receive the bulk of the attention (do you register, 1999’s The Wild, Wild West ?).

In the wake of the Alien 5 news, here are 10 franchise sequels that also ignored at least one previous film.
We all have moments in our lives we'd prefer to forget, and so too do filmmakers. So what do you do when a movie franchise starts to go off the rails? Simple, just forget that the lesser films in the series never happened.
News recently broke that director Neill Blomkamp's taking this approach to the Alien universe. Recent interviews with both he and returning star Sigourney Weaver have revealed that Blomkamp's forthcoming sequel will not necessarily follow the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection, and pick up the story from Aliens instead (although he has since given a brief update on that).
Of course, we'll have to wait and see exactly how all this pans out. But it's by no means the first time in history that a film's »
The story follows a type-a couple in an idyllic suburban neighborhood who discover that their new, seemingly perfect neighbors are undercover agents. Mike LeSieur wrote the script. [Source: Heat Vision]

It's official, Jason Biggs will not be returning to "Orange is the New Black" next season! The actor -- who plays Larry Bloom, aka Piper Chapman's (Taylor Schilling) fiance -- has confirmed that he will not be on Season 3 of the hit Netflix show. "They're not focusing on Larry at the moment," he revealed to New York's Daily News. "Larry will not be in season 3. But there's always a possibility he can come back." We have a feeling the "American Pie" star will be back though. The series is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, "Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison," which details Kerman's real-life experiences behind bars. Kerman is married to Larry Smith (who "Oitnb" Larry Bloom's character is based on), so we'd bet that Jason will return ... eventually. What do you think of Biggs' news?

Get ready for lots of 6-second bikini selfies from Tara Reid! The 39-year-old Sharknado star joined Vine Wednesday, and although she is fully clothed in her first two videos, she's every bit as entertaining as she is on her other scantily-clad social media accounts. In her very first Vine, the former American Pie star essentially makes herself into a human Gif, acting out, "When Girls Go to the Hair Salon they be like..." She wails dramatically in the clip as a stylist fusses over her hair. "Ah, you're ripping out my hair," she cries (although if you watch closely, you'll see it's actually Tara playfully removing her own extensions). Tara's second Vine doesn't »

"I'm a human. If you cut me I bleed," Tara said. "I'm just like everyone else. I think that when people are famous, they don't realize that they are actually human."
Along with her figure, her nights out on the town have also been a topic of tabloid fodder, which Tara said keeps her in the house.
