If at first you don’t succeed at Secret Santa-ing, do like Danny: Dust yourself off and try again!*
Warning: May cause heart-melt.
According to Danny, Mindy’s constant replaying of Aaliyah’s “Try Again” was one of the very first things about her that truly annoyed him. He must find himself quite unbearable by now, because the man is a Genius Aalyiah Impersonator.
(The reaction shots of Mindy are romantic and all, but why would you ever cut away from his brilliance?!)
They almost kissed after this, but Adam Pally had to bust in and ruin the moment »

Miley Cyrus continued to take the world by storm by performing her hit single, "Wrecking Ball," on the stage of "The X Factor UK" on Saturday (Nov. 16). There were, however, some small changes to the near-ubiquitous singer and song.
For those familiar with Miley's recent performances and videos, this version may have seemed a little odd. Miley Cyrus was fully clothed, first of all. Also, she wore a turban-like bit of headgear. There's probably some significance to that, but it's a new change.
Considering how many singers choose to fake their performances to pre-recorded tracks, the slight quaver in Cyrus' voice during the song has to be taken as a bit of a positive. Reports indicate that the singer has been sick -- hence the less-than-powerful voice.

It's not the easiest question to answer. Parts of the episode felt cheesy and forced. Other parts were devastating in the raw sadness shown. Overall, we may have gotten a great tribute but not a truly great episode. At least they left the auto-tune out of this one -- not hearing the real voices would have been an awful tribute to anyone.
But hey, sometimes things don't work out quite the way they were planned. That's what this episode is all about, isn't it?
Here's what happened.
Just dive right in, why don't we?
If you expected some story to start off an episode that has a big one, you would be disappointed. "Glee" didn't go that route. »
I will never understand why the world does not embrace "The Neighbors" as one of the funniest shows on television. The Season 2 premiere, "Family Conference," for example, has far more and far cleverer laughs than almost anything on television.
Also, you can watch it with very old or very young relatives and not be embarrassed. That's a big win.
Whatever the bizarre reasons are that not everyone loves "The Neighbors," at least we can say that those fools are missing out on greatness yet again in Season 2. "Family Conference" makes that very clear.
Amber and Reggie Jackson have managed to keep their "Romeo and Juliet"-esque romance a secret all summer. Alas, this comes crashing to the ground when their parents see them and scream a lot.
So of course the aliens need to have a family conference in order to vote on Amber and Reggie's relationship status. »
Nicole Kidman is back at it again, wearing luxurious costumes for a historical period film with Grace Of Monaco, based on the real-life exploits of actress Grace Kelly in her marriage to Prince Rainier III during the French Invasion of Monaco. Kidman playing Kelly is sure to rile up those who adore the classic actress who became a princess, but that's to be expected with most biopics. For me, Kidman is a reliable presence to anything she does (okay, except Just Go With It), so this »

One of the worst reviewed movies of the 2013 summer season, Grown Ups 2 still grossed a very healthy $131 million when it ran in theaters.
The attraction no doubt comes from the stars, of which this film is loaded. Adam Sandler (That’s My Boy), Kevin James (Here Comes the Boom), Chris Rock (2 Days in New York), David Spade (TV’s Rules of Engagement), Rob Schneider (The Reef) and Steve Buscemi (The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) star alongside Salma Hayek (Savages), Maria Bello (Carjacked) and Maya Rudolph (The Way, Way Back). And added to the cast this time around are Jon Lovitz (A League of Their Own), Shaquille O’Neal and Twilight heartthrob Taylor Lautner.
The story of Grown Ups 2 is basically the same as the original film, except instead of taking his friends and family back to his hometown, »
Ja from Mnpp here - I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but don't you just love forever besties Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts? I saw them once walking into the movie theater in Union Square in New York and I spent weeks contemplating what they were going to see. I mean, I can't be the only one who spends an unhealthy amount of time imagining them laying on a sofa, both in sweatpants, Naomi's head in Nicole's lap, a comically enormous bowl of popcorn on Naomi's belly, as they nosh and watch some difficult and demanding foreign film and see who can call dibs on the director first, right? That's totally how it rolls.
Anyway, picture that. Only this time Naomi rolls over, spilling some kernels on the floor, super sad. "Aww, what's wrong, puss-puss?" Nicole Asks. Nicole calls Naomi "puss-puss" in this scenario. Just go with it. »
After walking into our lives dripping wet as Rachel Green, the runaway bride looking to form a life of her own on Friends, Jennifer Aniston has become one of America’s biggest movie stars. It can be difficult to break out from the small screen, but Jen has played a myriad of roles in different films (almost as many as she’s had hairstyles), arguably becoming the most successful female star to transition from television to the big screen.
With five titles banked for 2014 and beyond, her name is still a go-to for casting directors. But how many of her films have you actually seen? Do you even know what they’re about? (Yes, one was about a dog and probably made you cry.) Test your knowledge below by matching the generic, spoiler-free Jennifer Aniston movie description with the real-life Jennifer Aniston movie title. Good luck!

As a number of box office reports will recognize, this was one of the weirdest weekends ever for new releases. For one thing, a documentary topped the chart for the three-day frame (there’s a chance it won’t win the whole four-day Labor Day weekend, however), and for another thing, a Spanish-language movie in limited release rounded out the top five highest grossing pics. Both of these bettered all other openers, including the action thriller Getaway and the British terrorism thriller Closed Circuit, which debuted Wednesday in a low-end yet still-wide release. It’s certainly the most curious weekend for box office numbers since a Bollywood movie opened in the top ten back in June. The doc at #1 is One Direction: This Is Us, and as far as I’m aware this is only the seventh nonfiction feature to open this high (the others are Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Jackson: This Is It, Hannah Montana »

Just when you thought it was safe to... oh, never mind. Seriously, no one is safe from the imagination of Roger Corman. Just go with it. Not too long ago we had a sit-down with the cult movie legend (check out the interview here) to chat about the launch of “Corman's Drive-In,” a YouTube subscription channel where fans can watch hundreds of feature films from the Corman vaults, ranging from '70s and '80s drive-in faves to his millennial monster mashups – including the infamous Sharktopus, which will now face off against the even more insane-sounding “Mermantula.” The latter was selected by fans from an online poll as their favorite new monster concept, and true to form, Corman's studio has already busted out a feature film about it. Our story finds the Sharktopus returning to invade a Caribbean town, where a mad scientist (Catherine Oxenberg, Lair of the White Worm »

Kevin Hudson, one of two stage managers at Sony Studios, mans all 18 of the lot’s stages and checks every morning to see if there are any flaws or potential problems. His day starts at 7 a.m. — sometimes earlier if there’s a location shoot — and he’s on the job well into the evening, keeping things running smoothly. If there is anything that interferes with the shoot, be it an intrusive
animal, bird or structural problem on a soundstage, Hudson is on it. “I’m the person they call for anything,” he says. “If anybody here has a leak, they’ll call me and I’ll help.” In the past year or so, he’s worked on “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Jeopardy!” “Wheel of Fortune” and “Just Go With It.”

From mainstream movies to indie flicks, Jennifer Aniston has made a big screen career out of unexpected choices. She’s popped up as a globe hopping free spirit in Along Came Polly, as Adam Sandler’s love interest in Just Go With It and most memorably as a twisted employer in Horrible Bosses.
Her latest role is no less surprising: playing a stripper passing as a soccer mom in We’re the Millers. But there is one area Jen’s not so risky: her wardrobe.
Whether on the red carpet or in real life, her classic sense of style has been on lockdown for years. Fuss free frocks, jeans and lots of black are always in heavy rotation. Here’s how her preference for simple pieces manages to look simply amazing. »

Google "Jennifer Aniston Box Office Poison," and here are some of the headlines on the first page of results: "Jennifer Aniston's 10 Biggest Box Office Failures," "Celebrities With Good Looks Don't Always Translate Box Office Hits" and "Another Box Office Bomb For Jennifer Aniston!"
Which is to say that, for many industry observers, Aniston doesn't carry much box-office clout. "Over the past decade, she dropped one box-office bomb after another during her attempted run as the next America’s Sweetheart," Kevin Fallon wrote for The Daily Beast. "She’s failed as the next rom-com queen. She’s flailing in her attempt at becoming a lascivious leading lady. So what, exactly, do we want from Jennifer Aniston?"
Well, maybe we're already getting it: For instance, Aniston's new film "We're the Millers" is headed toward a debut week tally of about $30 million in North America. It's not like Aniston is fronting movies like "The Lone Ranger. »

So which Jennifer Aniston shows up at the box office Wednesday: the hitmaker from "Horrible Bosses," "Just Go With It" and "Marley and Me" ... or the dudmaker in "Wanderlust," "The Switch" and "Love Happens"? Smart money's on the good Jen -- and that's good news for Warner Bros. and New Line. Co-starring "SNL" alum Jason Sudeikis, the R-rated pot-smuggling comedy "We're the Millers" will wind up with around $35 million for the five days, industry analysts estimate. That should be enough to top Fox's teen-targeting sci-fi fantasy "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," which also »

Both of these talented actresses have terrific fashion sense! They both stepped out onto the red carpet in Santa Monica, Calif. in almost matching ensembles on August 1 when they attended the Young Hollywood Awards. Since Bailee is half of Holland’s age her look was a little more youthful, while Holland opted for a much more mature and sophisticated style. Who do you think looked better on the red carpet?
Holland Roden, 26, looked phenomenal at the Young Hollywood Awards. She opted for Ted Baker long-sleeved top that had a dark black trim. Her slim-fit Ted Baker pants matched perfectly with the floral print on top giving a mature and sophisticated look. Her strappy black sandals and »

Next Wednesday marks the release of Rawson Marshall Thurber’s raunchy comedy, We’re The Millers, a Jason Sudeikis- and Jennifer Aniston-starring affair that aims to make international drug smuggling fun for the whole family (even if that family is a fake one, like the one in the film). It’s also another film that aims to convince America that both Sudeikis and Aniston are bonafide movie stars, a claim that we’re still not entirely sure is true (even if we do think that Sudeikis is well on his way). The problem lies with Aniston, an actress that has never been better, funnier, or more interesting than she was on the television show that made her (we’re talking about Friends here, you’ve probably heard of it). Aniston has starred in plenty of films over the course of her career – including Leprechaun, She’s the One, The Object of My Affection »

• Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3) is in talks to join Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar in a supporting capacity. Naturally, no details were given about the nature of the role, but we’re hoping this could be the beginning of a Topher Grace career reboot. He has a number of projects in the works including The Invitation with Zachary Quinto, The Calling with Susan Sarandon, and A Many Splintered Thing with Aubrey Plaza and Chris Evans, a.k.a. April and not Andy. [Deadline]

Showtime’s Ray Donovan is premiering tonight at 10 p.m. Liev Schreiber’s eponymous character is a “fixer” — I know, I know another one? But in this age of modern technology, a fixer has become more important than ever. You can’t erase your reputation when it’s living on the internet forever.
In honor of Ray Donovan, we’ve put together a list of the best fixers across the country in case you are in need of their services. Whether you’re a bratty child planning a bat mitzvah or someone accused of murdering your beard, we’ve got »

Hang in Hollywood long enough, and you're bound to be typecast every now and then.
But for some actors, playing to type isn't just laziness or the final tremors of a fading career. Keeping their characters close to home is just what they do best, or at least what keeps the money flowing. And anyway, would you really want to see Jason Statham falling head-over-heels for Katherine Heigl in some lame romantic comedy? Neither would we.
Indeed, for some actors, staying in their comfort zone is really for the best. Here are nine of them.
1. Jason Statham The Character: Bald, badass protagonist who's not afraid to get his hands dirty.
The perpetually stone-faced Statham got his start starring in twinsie Guy Ritchie gangster movies "Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch" and eventually elevated to full-on action stardom with the "Transporter" and "Crank" series. In every one of these »
