Take one part Hollywood glamour, one part NYC culture, add a healthy sprinkling of late-night bashes, mixed with the first signs of warm spring weather and what have you got? The Tribeca Film Festival. This year's fest kicks off tonight and runs through Apr. 27. Here's what we're looking forward to most: The Movies: She's great in front of the camera, but now Courteney Cox is now trying her hand behind the scenes, too. Her first directorial feature debut, Just Before I Go, will debut at Tiff and stars American Pie's Seann William Scott and Private Practice's Kate Walsh. Are you a fan of Chinese food? We are, too—which is why we're looking forward to The Search for General Tso, a »
I think that there’s a rule in Hollywood that movies that start with the word “American” must have amazing ensemble casts (see: American Hustle, American Beauty, American Pie, American Gangster, American Graffiti). This week, the action-comedy American Ultra adds three new members to an already bustling line-up: Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman and Arrested Development‘s Tony Hale. They join Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Justified‘s Walton Goggins, Topher Grace and John Leguizamo in a film for Project X director Nima Nourizadeh.
The low-budget Lionsgate movie, picked up for a cool $7 million in March, stars Eisenberg as Mike, a stoner and slacker living in a small town whose past as a highly-trained secret agent comes back to interfere with his new, quieter existence. He becomes the target of a top secret government operation, which naturally does not sit well with his girlfriend, Phoebe (played by Eisenberg’s Adventureland co-star, Stewart »

So here’s the premise – a guy and his best friend are down on their luck, struggling to pay rent, and looking for a new means of income. One of the chums hears that sexual services are in demand, he recommends the other fellow, and they become a pimp and gigolo team sweeping New York City. Sounds like perfect fodder for two young funnymen like Jonah Hill as the pimp and Channing Tatum as the gigolo, right? Ha, you couldn’t be more wrong. Try imagining Woody Allen as the pimp and John Turturro as the gigolo, and then wrap your mind around Sofía Vergara and Sharon Stone paying Turturro for a time-restricted session of love-making. If Fading Gigolo isn’t an unfair tease to mild-mannered men around the globe, I don’t know what is.
There’s far more emotionality in Fading Gigolo than the simple premise suggests, as »

It comes to a pretty pass if the most rebellious thing in your life is eating a banana outside of lunch. A monkey wouldn't think twice about eating a banana whether it's 10am, 3pm or 11.30 at night. Eric would throw lunchtime caution to the wind when gobbling a banana to turn into superhero Bananaman. But for Willow Rosenberg, chomping on a banana whenever she pleases depressingly sums up her current mid-teen crisis. Her friends are taking her for granted. The new Slayer in town is a double-crossing sleaze. Worst of all, Snyder's using her in his ongoing plan to give a free pass to every arrogant jock gracing the halls of Sunnydale High with only tinned meat for brains.
It's fitting that Buffy The Vampire Slayer's 50th episode pays tribute to one of it's best loved characters. Ironically, I've come across many an article and list that puts Willow »
I love how movies make you feel certain emotions as you watch them. It's one of my favorite parts about going to the movies. I always find it interesting, though, when I get vicariously embarrassed during awkward moments. Meaning I am embarrassed for the characters in the movie in the positions that they are put in. I started thinking about this while I was watching Goodfellas over the weekend. Is it just me, or does it seem like this movie is on every other day? Anyway, There's a scene where Joe Pesci starts to get pissed off at Ray Liotta for telling him he was a funny guy. The scene went from being fun to uncomfortable very fast, and I started to feel embarrassed for Liotta's character.
I started to think of what other movies that made me feel like that, and came up with the following list of films. »

Whether it be the result of lingering egotism from their distant heyday or complete ignorance of any sentiment with which to ground them in reality, the musical landscape is littered with bands clawing onto past successes and yearning after halcyon days where their popularity was referred to in the present tense.
Just imagine if music’s most luminary figures – your Cobain’s, your Morrison’s and your Joplin’s – were conducting their umpteenth greatest hits tour which sees them reeling off the big songs night after night, year after year rather than bowing out by getting their 27 Club membership card. Would the world remember them with such fondness and reverence? I think not.
The acts gathered here should take a leaf out of Keane’s book and realise when their tenure at the helm of pop culture is exhausted. Slipping into the integrity-eroding position of the nostalgia act – existing »

The Wachowskis' ground-breaking blockbuster The Matrix celebrated its 15th anniversary recently, and for this landmark we couldn't help but cast our mind back to the year of its release 1999.
Call it pre-Millennium anxiety or the finality of a clock ticking over from 99 to 00, but there was something in Hollywood's creative waters that year. American Beauty took home the Best Picture Academy Award the following year, but beyond that there were a slew of incredible films that hit theatres in 1999.
And not just in one particular genre: we saw great works in the blockbuster arena (the aforementioned Matrix), horror (The Sixth Sense), comedy (American Pie) and animation (Toy Story 2). This was a time when great directors - David Fincher, Alexander Payne, Paul Thomas Anderson, Spike Jonze, David O Russell - were all hitting their stride and producing incredible work.
Was 1999 the best ever year for movies? Digital Spy takes a »
It is hard to believe it now but How I Met Your Mother teetered between renewal and cancellation in its first two seasons. On Monday it wrapped up its ninth and final season and it did so as primetime’s third highest rated comedy.
While the very title of the show placed the focus on the story of how Josh Radnor’s Ted Mosby met the mother of his children, it soon became clear that the focus was more on the lives and friendship of Ted and his friends. It was in that element that the show excelled and found its audience of diehard fans, all thanks to its incredibly likeable cast. Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris were no strangers to television after their previous successes in Buffy and Doogie Howser, M.D. respectively, with Hannigan also coming off the back of the American Pie series. They were »

Kiss and tell! While phoning into Australia's "Kyle & Jackie O Show" radio program on Wednesday, Tara Reid took part in a game called "60 Seconds of Kiss" during which the cohosts named several celebs and asked the actress to reveal if she has ever kissed them or would like to kiss them. At one point, Tom Brady was mentioned and Reid replied, "Have kissed," adding, "Yeah, he's pretty good looking." Mind you, such a claim doesn't come as a complete surprise seeing how the 38-year-old American Pie star and the New England Patriots quarterback were rumored to have dated briefly back in 2002. Oh, and speaking of American Pie, Reid was asked if she had »
Exclusive: American Pie alumna Mena Suvari is set as the lead in Amazon Studios‘ drama pilot Hysteria, from Invasion creator Shaun Cassidy and Alcon Entertainment.

Suvari, repped by ICM Partners, Alchemy Entertainment and attorney Darren Trattner, just completed an arc on NBC’s Chicago Fire. »

New York, Mar.17: Every famous scene of a Hollywood movie has a few secrets.
Guyism has compiled and listed some of those steamy scenes and what went behind it.
The sex comedy 'American Pie' had few scenes which showed Jason Biggs' character achieve the 'happy' look and in order to do so prop designers had cooked a sausage, put a pencil through it and wrapped it in a foil and put it down his pants.
In the Oscar winning movie 'Titanic' Kate Winslet wanted Leonardo DiCaprio to feel comfortable before they started filming that scene, so she gave him a sneak peek of what was beneath her robe before the camera started. »

All the latest news from around your TV dial:
- "How I Met Your Dad," the spinoff to CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" series, has added two new cast members: Nick D'Agosto ("Masters of Sex," above middle) and "Mixology's" Andrew Santino. D'Agosto will play Frank, the "Robin" of the group, though Frank's relationship to Sally (the "Ted") is quite different than the Ted-Robin relationship that kicked off "Himym." Santino has been cast as Danny, Sally's older brother. His "Himyd" role is secondary to his "Mixology" role. They join the already-cast Greta Gerwig as Sally. [THR]
- Odette Annable ("Banshee," above right) has been cast in "Astronaut Wives Club," the ABC drama about the women behind the men participating in the 1960s space race. Annable is Trudy Cooper, the youngest of the wives and also a licensed pilot. [Deadline]
It was all things "Orange Is the New Black" at The Dolby Theatre on Friday (March 14) as night two of Paleyfest 2014 feted the hit Netflix series. With a staggering 12 cast members on stage, as well as creator Jenji Kohan, the event revealed a cast that couldn't be having more fun with one another and an audience that couldn't be having more fun watching.
With that many people on stage, it proved hard at times for some to get a word in (poor Michael Harney, who plays the beleaguered Healy, barely spoke once), but the panel was full of hilarity and moments of enlightenment on Season 1, as well as a few teases about the highly-anticipated upcoming second season.
Fan reaction went from 0 to 60 overnight
When asked what life was like once Season 1 was released in 2013, the cast was unanimous on the fact that recognition on the street happened almost immediately. "They've assaulted us! »

Robert Patrick co-stars. »

The British reality show is being adapted for We TV. “In Sex Box, real couples whose relationships are on the rocks enter a soundproof box to have sex and, upon exit, immediately address their issues with a panel of experts.” Okay, Brit readers, what’s your verdict (and don’t tell me you haven’t watched). And have they ever had same sex couples?

Sharknado was the surprise Syfy channel hit of last year, and became a bit of a phenomena, with everyone clamouring to watch it. Easily one of the cheesiest movies ever made, the film was an example of being one of those films that are so bad, it’s good.
The film starred American Pie actress Tara Reid and original Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering. The plot saw La experience a freak tornado storm, made all the worse after it sucked-up a gaggle of blood-thirsty sharks. Shortly after the resounding success became apparent, a sequel was announced days after the originals air date.
Ingeniously titled Sharknado 2: The Second One, the sequel will shift the story to New York. WWE wrestling star Kurt Angle is taking on one of the lead roles, whilst several other celebrities have been announced as having cameos, including the original pair, Kelly Osbourne and Perez Hilton. »
