Take a Tour Inside All the Iconic Homes Made Famous by Movies

Owning a house that was featured in a famous movie is definitely a brag-worthy accomplishment, but living in a piece of pop culture history definitely has its downsides. The lucky people who snatch up properties featured in movies like Mean Girls and Harry Potter might get to enjoy the pleasure of chilling in Regina George's crib, but they also have to deal with pesky tourists, which can get out of hand. That was definitely the case for the owner of Carrie Bradshaw's townhouse in Sex and the City. The famous steps attracted hordes of crowds who clogged the famous staircase and treated the neighborhood like it was Disneyland. The owners got so angry, they eventually banned fans from going on the steps. But for some people, the draw of wanting to tour a famous house is too hard to pass up, and hey, we can't blame them.

“Mean Girls” is Taking the Stage on Broadway

That’s right, Mean Girls is going to Broadway. The high school adventure will be featuring much of the same material that was in the feature-length movie with an obviously different cast. Tina Fey, who created the original story, will be presiding over the play as well, and will be bringing back all of the feelings of high school that were highlighted in the film in an attempt to make the play something great but still unique enough to be called its own entity. So far the cast have already bonded and are on board with what has to happen. A

"Wig" Is Our New Favorite Saying Thanks to Noah Davis and Katy Perry on 'American Idol'

The American Idol reboot is officially back — and we already have our new favorite sayings thanks to new judge Katy Perry and hopeful Noah Davis. The 18-year-old contestant from Arkansas impressed the panel during his audition on the reality singing competition and shared his excitement by uttering the word "wig" and Katy was loving it. "Did you just say wig?" Katy asked Noah during his audition. "I know. Wig. I feel that already." Unfortunately, fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie had no idea what the saying meant — and Katy and Noah did not want to explain. "It's not your language. It's just for us. Wig." So, what does wig mean? Luckily, the "Firework" singer finally shared the secret message behind her and Noah's word. A post shared by American Idol (@americanidol) on Mar 11, 2018 at 9:22pm Pdt "It's a language that sometimes the kids and I speak. It's a

Worst National Anthem Singer Harper Grace Hopes to Redeem Herself on 'American Idol'

She's coming for her second chance! When she was just 11 years old, aspiring singer Harper Grace went viral in the most embarrassing way. Back in 2012, Harper got what she thought would be her big break — singing the national anthem at major league soccer game that was televised nationwide. But it quickly went viral for all the wrong reasons and ever since, she was known as the girl who performed one of the worst national anthem renditions ever — and now she's hoping to redeem herself on American Idol. "If you search the worst national anthem, mine is the very first that ever pops up next to Christina Aguilera and Roseanne Barr, so I was like, 'You know what? At least my name's out there,'" the McKinney, TX native told Ryan Seacrest. The story made headlines and 11-year-old Harper was even interviewed for a segment on ABC News shortly after the

Exclusive: Listen to Waz-jackson’s genre-bending score for YouTube Red’s newest series Youth & Consequences

In honor of the recent premiere of Youtube Red’s newest sitcom, Youth & Consequences, we decided to share with you an exclusive playlist with a few of the show’s tracks by composing duo Waz and Jamie Jackson, known as Waz-jackson.

Youth & Consequences is billed as a “woke” version of Mean Girls. It is described as a series that boldly tackles hot-button issues like feminism, gender identity and the seemingly life-or-death stakes of adolescence in the Digital Age. It follows Farrah Cutney (Anna Akana), the girl everyone wishes they were in school: a master of her domain, queen of “spin” and the resident “fixer” — at the center of a rumor storm that she can no longer control.

Aside from Youth & Consequences, Waz-jackson is currently scoring The CW’s Life Sentence starring Lucy Hale. They also have two documentary films in post-production, Cancer Rebellion produced by Roger Daltrey of The

Will Supple Might Be 'American Idol's' Next Breakout Star but He Can Also Quote the Entire 'Mean Girls' Movie

Get ready American Idol fans because the singing competition is returning to ABC on March 11, and there is already one potential breakout star everyone should have on their radar. His name is Will Supple and part of his audition is already going for viral — although it's not because of anything he sang. American Idol judge Katy Perry asked Will if he had any special talents to which he admitted he can quote the entire Mean Girls movie from start to finish. Katy then proceeded to show him her own secret talent which mainly consisted of puffing out part of her neck so she looked like a giant bullfrog. (Photo Credit: ABC) Judging by Will's face, it's safe to say he was impressed. But, there is a lot more to know about Will than just his love for Mean Girls.

Film Review: ‘Thoroughbreds’

Film Review: ‘Thoroughbreds’
Remember the name Cory Finley. The astonishingly gifted writer-director of “Thoroughbreds” is going places, which could also be said for Olivia Cooke (“Vanity Fair”) and Anya Taylor-Joy (“Split”), the two note-perfect lead actresses who star in Finley’s icy psychological thriller — a refined, upper-class riff on “Heavenly Creatures,” “Fun,” and the entire wicked subgenre in which two girls, perfectly harmless on their own, prove to be homicidal in one another’s company. That dynamic may be familiar, but Finley’s unsettling, slow-burn debut has a voice and feel all its own — like Emily Post with fangs — heralding this dark-minded dramatist as a talent to watch.

Some people are born with a silver spoon, while others go straight for the steak knives. The latter could be said of Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke), childhood best friends from posh Connecticut families whose days of horseback riding are far behind them.

Game Night review – sibling rivalry takes a dark turn

Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman star in a witty comedy about couple dynamics that turns into a game of dangerous one-upmanship

Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (who played Sam, Lindsay Weir’s nerdy little brother in Judd Apatow’s small-but-perfectly-formed TV series Freaks and Geeks), this surprisingly zingy, throwback studio comedy is witty and observant on the dynamics between couples. Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman are Annie and Max, a competitive, board games-obsessed couple who are struggling to conceive. It’s a blow to Max’s ego when his sexy, wealthy older brother Brooks (Kyle Chandler) zips into town in a flashy red corvette to attend their weekly game night and even worse when he decides to throw his own murder mystery party in an act of smug one-upmanship. (“Sibling rivalry can be very powerful,” deadpans the couple’s fertility doctor.)

Game Night review

Ready for the comedy surprise of the year so far? Get yourself a ticket to the really impressive Game Night...

A couple of days on from seeing Game Night, it's still making me laugh. It's been a long time since we've seen something this consistently funny come out of a Hollywood studio, but for once, it's terrific to see a comedy that doesn't pile all of its jokes in the trailer and doesn't get bogged down in meanness. For those of us who still shudder at the memory of Office Christmas Party, Jason Bateman most definitely redeems himself here.

The film opens with his character Max meeting Annie (Rachel McAdams) at a pub quiz, where they match wits over Tinky Winky from Teletubbies. It's love at first sight, and their matching competitive streak makes them formidable hosts of a regular game night for their friends. Regrettably, Max's sibling rivalry with

Rachel McAdams is sitting in the parking lot of Martins Millwork, a purveyor of fine home building materials, in rural Georgia where she’s visiting some friends just before Christmas.

“I was coming back from Target. I was just getting suction cups for our Christmas wreaths and I’m now pulled over in the middle of, I don’t really know where,” she says with a laugh, apologizing for being 10 minutes late for our call. Halfway through our interview she has to placate a curious Martins employee who wants her to move on. She gives him a little wave and tells him sorry, that she’ll be gone soon. So Canadian.
