Has it actually been ten years already since we have been engaged in the realm of films dating back to 2004? A decade is certainly a long period of time to build our appreciation for cinema up until this critical point in 2014. In looking back at 2004, one can recall fondly some of the more desirable releases to come out at that time. For instance, the superb Million Dollar Baby was the Academy Award-winning film for 2004. Even the comedies that were released that year gave movie audiences cause to rejoice with such ditties as the sleeper indie hit Napoleon Dynamite and well as mainstream laughers in Mean Girls and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy.
Unfortunately for every gem there is a dud and then some. And 2004 had its share to say the least. So how about getting nostalgic and recalling some of the notable misses that were heaped on misled moviegoers »

Elizabeth Banks just wanted to borrow someone's phone, okay?
In this exclusive (and very R-rated) clip for "Walk of Shame," Elizabeth Banks's character, Meghan, is lost and trying to make a phone call after a particularly eventful evening. See also: the title of the movie. In modern parlance, the walk of shame is what one does after having intimate relations with another person that they've just met. A walk of shame is usually done in one's clothes and/or makeup from the night before, unless it's Halloween, in which case the walk of shame is done in one's Halloween costume.
Unfortunately for Meghan, her walk of shame is much more complicated. The recognizable TV reporter has to navigate Los Angeles without cash, a car, her phone, or even her ID. And she has to do it in time to make a really important job interview for a network news anchor gig! »

Following a somewhat underwhelming trailer earlier this year for the comedy Walk of Shame starring Elizabeth Banks, a second red band trailer offers a slightly better look at the comedy. While the terrible audio editing in the first half of the trailer is thoroughly distracting, Banks shines as she runs around Los Angeles, trying to get her car back in order to make it to the most important job interview of her career as a news anchorwoman. Meanwhile, her one-night-stand James Marsden and friends Gillian Jacobs and Sarah Wright are in hot pursuit, trying to end her long night from hell with a happy ending. Watch below! Here's the new red band trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Us Magazine: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, Drillbit Taylor, Without a Paddle). Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games franchise, Pitch Perfect) stars »

Every adventurous college student is familiar with the walk of shame, to the point where stumbling back to one’s dorm in disheveled clothing after a night on the town is considered a rite of passage by many. However, most one night stands don’t result in as much trouble as Elizabeth Banks’s does, in the appropriately titled Walk of Shame.
The first trailer for the film, which you can check out below, was released today and it gives us a peek at her truly disastrous morning after:
Banks plays aspiring reporter Meghan Miles (Banks), who encounters many obstacles as she attempts to make the trek from the home of a random hook-up (James Marsden) through downtown L.A. to get to the most important job interview of her career.
It’s nice to see Banks taking on a leading role for the first time in what feels like a long while. »

While Elizabeth Banks has mostly been relegated to meaty supporting roles in films like People Like Us, The Hunger Games, The Next Three Days and Role Models, this time she's taking the lead on the comedy Walk of Shame. It's a classic race against time as Banks plays a local news reporter who has the sudden opportunity to become a network news anchor. The only problem is after her car is towed following a one night stand (with James Marsden), she has no phone, ID or money, and finds herself stranded and desperate to make it to the interview. This trailer reminds me of that movie Trojan War from 1997 with "Boy Meets World" star Will Friedle looking everywhere for a condom. And that's not a compliment. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Yahoo: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, »
