Oh look, another slasher flick full of half-naked women. Obviously not the most original horror film theme, but, yet again, here it is. The Nurse 3D trailer is, as you guessed, chock-full of scantily clad nurses. The twist? Paz de la Huerta's character kills a bunch of people while dressed as a sexy nurse. See, a thoroughly original and well developed plot twist. Anyway, check out the trailer below.
After you've managed to stop laughing at this absurdly bad trailer we can ponder the the two most obvious questions we all have about this film. Firstly, why is Corbin Bleu in this? Bleu will probably never be associated with anything other than High School Musical, and his participation in this film makes me really uncomfortable. Secondly, who the hell came up with the idea to release this film the week before Valentine's Day? Honestly, this movie is not a prime candidate for becoming a box-office blockbuster, and releasing it for an audience of lovey-dovey couples is like asking for this film to fail. Throw it out during Halloween weekend and maybe you'll make some of your money back... but seriously, Valentine's Day?
Anyway, while the actors and release date aren't exactly great choices, the film itself could be highly entertaining for those of you excited to see Katrina Bowden and de la Huerta in all their half-naked 3D glory. Otherwise, the weak plot of a hot nurse (Bowden) trying to stop another hot nurse (de la Huerta) from killing people probably won't being enticing enough to make you run out and see this film.
Nurse 3D will hit theaters February 7, 2014.

"We're going to plan a trip to Hawaii. We're going in a couple of months. We don't have everything locked down yet. We wanted to decompress before going... It's too stressful for me, personally. It takes a lot of planning and I'm not that organised." Newlywed actress Katrina Bowden is delaying her honeymoon. The 30 Rock star married Ben Jorgensen in New York last weekend (19May13).
Newlywed actress Katrina Bowden walked down the aisle to Aerosmith's I Don't Want To Miss A Thing and enjoyed her first dance as Mrs. Ben Jorgensen to the sounds of Ryan Adams' cover of Wonderwall. The 30 Rock star wed the musician last weekend (19May13) in a romantic ceremony at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York and has since shared photos from her big day with readers of Us Weekly magazine.
30 Rock star Katrina Bowden walked down the aisle with her rocker beau in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday (19May13). The actress exchanged vows with musician Ben Jorgensen in a romantic ceremony at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, a year and a half after they became engaged.
The bride and groom and their guests braved the rainy Big Apple weather for the private nuptials, but the newlyweds have some heat to look forward to - they are heading to Hawaii for their honeymoon.
Before their big day, Bowden admitted she was overwhelmed with her wedding plans. She revealed, "It's just crazy. I didn't know anything about weddings, and now I'm starting to learn everything and it's just kind of nuts. There's a lot that goes into it. I don't have a planner, so I'm doing it myself.
"(The biggest challenge) is just figuring out when you need to do everything. Picking a day is really difficult, too. People book things years in advance. I think everything about it is difficult."
Actress Katrina Bowden will reportedly wed her musician fiance Ben Jorgensen in New York next weekend (18-19May13). The 30 Rock star and Jorgensen, who became engaged last year (12) after dating for seven years, will exchange vows at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on 19 May, according to the New York Daily News.
A source tells the publication, "She's keeping it private, but it's happening."
Bowden recently admitted she was overwhelmed by all of the wedding planning after deciding against hiring a professional to organise her big day.
She said, "It's just crazy. I didn't know anything about weddings, and now I'm starting to learn everything and it's just kind of nuts. There's a lot that goes into it. I don't have a planner, so I'm doing it myself."
The star has been engaged to musician Ben Jorgensen for a year, but she admits planning for their nuptials fell behind on her list of priorities as she focused on filming the seventh and final season of TV comedy 30 Rock.
She says, "It's just crazy. I didn't know anything about weddings, and now I'm starting to learn everything and it's just kind of nuts. There's a lot that goes into it. I don't have a planner, so I'm doing it myself.
"(The biggest challenge) is just figuring out when you need to do everything. Picking a day is really difficult, too. People book things years in advance. I think everything about it is difficult. We don't have a date set, we need the timing to be right, we need our family to be able to go."
Filming on 30 Rock officially wrapped in December (12), freeing up Bowden to work on her next project, her wedding - and now she's no longer stressing about the whole event, she's starting to enjoy the planning process.
She tells People.com, "It's hard when you're working, but now that I'm not working, I have a little more time. It's exciting. It's fun."
But Bowden reveals there's one aspect of the reception she already has sorted, thanks to a 30 Rock co-star: "Tracy Morgan has told me he'd like to sing at the wedding at some point. I was like, 'If you do, I will love you forever.'"
The stars of the popular comedy shot their final scenes on Wednesday (19Dec12) and Friedlander celebrated the occasion by handing out trucker hats like the ones his character Frank wore throughout the series.
Actress Katrina Bowden tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Everyone on the crew and everyone in the cast got a hat. Mine said 'Italian Senator' on it because there was a Halloween episode and I was wearing a bikini that said 'Italian Senator'... Jane (Krakowski)'s hat said 'Cam-er-a' on it and Tina (Fey)'s said 'Cupcake Sandwich,' which is a reference to a recent episode.
"(Friedlander) has so many hats... he has garbage bags full of letters."
The cast went on to celebrate with a big party on Thursday (20Dec12) at New York City venue Capitale, where show bosses recreated one of the sitcom's sets for guests.
Bowden adds of the party, "It was a good time for us to celebrate instead of cry."
30 Rock will finish at the end of the seventh season, with the last episode, an hour-long special, due to air in the U.S. on 31 January (13).
Over the past seven years, we've spend a good amount of time on the sixth floor of the GE Building, seated in the TGS with Tracy Jordan writers room, watching the churning out of brilliant concepts like Tyke Myson: Baby Boxer, Wonder Woman Gets Her Period, and oh so many Fart Doctors. As we know, the television program that introduced us to such comedic wonder, 30 Rock, is coming to a close this season.
On Thursday morning, Kevin Brown (who plays the NBC sitcom's most well-read character, Walter "Dot Com" Slattery) tweeted the below image of the cast and crew banding together for one last set photo, in bittersweet celebration of 30 Rock's final wrap on shooting — as confirmed in a tweet by another of the show's supporting stars, Katrina Bowden (pictured), who posted on Thursday, "Yesterday was our very last day of shooting #30Rock laugher,tears,emotional speeches &a lot of cake. Tonight we celebrate 7 great years :)"
Now, we're sure that everyone was truly broken up over the conclusion of their long-running, critically acclaimed program. But why, then, can no one seem to focus on the fact that their picture is being taken? If you take a good look at the picture, you'll see many familiar faces from the TGS writers room — those of Cerie (Bowden), Frank (Judah Friedlander), Twofer (Keith Powell), Lutz (J.D. Lutz), and Sue (Sue Galloway) mesmerized by some bizarre offscreen phenomenon. Oddly, the usually befuddled Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan) seems focused, with his reliable entouragee Dot Com following suit. So what exactly might all of these people be so engrossed by?
Here are a few theories...
What is Cerie looking at?
Back from a nine-month voyage with his Somali pirate cronies, Cerie's socialite husband Aris has started an off-camera brawl with NBC page Kenneth Parcell... a long-gestating rivalry, fueled by an ill-conceived kiss Kenneth gave Cerie back in Season 1 of 30 Rock.
What is Frank looking at?
Having caught a glimpse of the one NBC cleaning lady with whom he has not fostered a romantic fling, Frank has taken to studying her habits diligently in order to win her heart before his days in the GE Building are over for good.
What is Twofer looking at?
Upon hearing someone shout something defamatory about his alma mater (he went to school in Boston... well, not in Boston, but nearby... no, not Tufts), and refuses to take that sort of codswallop lying down.
What is Lutz looking at?
Any semblance of a friend he might make before the final wrap of the show.
What is Sue looking at?
Whatever the English translation of a "fondruke" is.
What isn't Tracy Jordan looking at?
Captivated for once by the task he's been asked to undertake (smiling and staring straight ahead, kind of his wheelhouse), Tracy seems to be missing whatever is keeping his colleagues so enrapt. Perhaps he was sedated by a Diet Slice and some pita chips.
What is Dot Com ruminating about?
Having come to terms with his romantic inadequacies and personal insecurities, the sage prophet that is Walter Slattery can now smile big, thinking back upon a life of artistic expression in The Seagull and Angels in America. You've done well, Dot Com. You deserve a smile.

Over the next few months, we’ll see new series soar, old series sour, and so much Jersey Shore madness, we’ll want to shower. Let’s face it: The Fall TV season is intimidating. With dozens of new and returning shows hitting our small screens, we know we have some big choices to make. So, to help you determine what to watch, we’re digging deep into the most notable series premiering this season. Where did each show leave off? Where is it headed? And who should you watch it with? Today, we're checking out the return of 30 Rock. But can it pick up the pieces?
Series: 30 Rock
Premiere Date: Thursday, Oct. 4 at 8 PM ET
Number of Seasons: Entering its seventh — and final — season.
Cast: The thinking woman's superhero Tina Fey leads a large, wildly talented, and eclectic ensemble that includes Words with Friends aficionado Alec Baldwin, song-and-dance woman Jane Krakowski, everyman Scott Adsit, human Muppet Jack McBrayer, human sad trombone John Lutz, slacker extraordinaire Judah Friedlander, token hottie Katrina Bowden, and the man who got you pregnant while you were reading this, Tracy Morgan.
Synopsis: Liz Lemon (Fey) is the overworked, underappreciated head writer of a late night sketch comedy show called TGS on NBC (owned by the illustrious KableTown). She's surrounded by her merry (well, sometimes) band of misfits that includes her business tycoon boss Jack Donaghy (Baldwin), the self-absorbed cast members of the show, Tracy and Jenna (Morgan and Krakowski), and fellow loony coworkers like loyal page Kenneth (McBrayer) and intellectual hired goons Grizz and Dot Com (Grizz Chapman and Kevin Brown). Liz is trying to juggle her crazy work life in addition to her equally crazy love life, which has included dating the likes of a beeper salesman who appeared on To Catch a Predator, a handsome doctor with a hook for a hand, Wesley Snipes (not that Wesley Snipes), and a ficus plant that resembled Bon Jovi.
Where We Left Off Last Season: Liz seemed to be on the baby track with her adorable, sane, IKEA-hating, hot dog-selling live-in boyfriend Criss (James Marsden, at long last getting the girl); Jack and Avery (Elizabeth Banks) became happily divorced; Jenna was blissfully engaged to Paul (Will Forte); Kenneth and Hazel (Kristen Schaal) all made us wildly uncomfortable with their first kiss; finally, Tracy chose Tyler Perry as his new role model in life.
What Might Happen This Season: From the looks of that spectacular photo above, Jenna goes through with marrying Paul (who will presumably have the same dress as his bride). Whether or not Liz marries Criss is still up for debate, though pictures released from the set of 30 Rock this summer implied that they — or, at least, she — goes through with adopting a baby. Elsewhere, Jack might finally convince Nancy (Julianne Moore) to move out of Bah-stin and live with him in New York, where he's the CEO of KableTown, while Angie (Sherri Shepherd) and Tracy continue their television dominance. And Dr. Spaceman will, naturally, become the Surgeon General.
You'll Like It If: You like quick-witted comedy that's as smart as it is silly.
You Won't Like It If:You're a dummy, dummy.
Emmy Love: Thus far, 30 Rock has received 57 Primetime Emmy nominations and have gone home with 14. From 2007 to 2009 it won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, the same three years Alec Baldwin won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Tina Fey earned Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2008 and Elaine Stritch won the 2007 Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her performance as Jack's unrelentingly judgmental mother Colleen.
Ratings: While 30 Rock has always been an awards show and critical darling, the series never went far beyond its cult status to become a major ratings player. In its first year, it averaged only 5.8 million viewers, while Season 6 had its lower viewership yet with 4.5 million. (It came in at a dismal #130 for the 2011-2012 season). 30 Rock had its biggest ratings year back in Season 3, averaging 7.5 million viewers. Still, despite low ratings, the popularity of Fey, the show's fervent fan base, and the fact that it's available on Watch Instantly on Netflix, kept the show alive.
Key Soundbites: "I want to go to there!", "Blergh!", "HAM!", "What the what?", "Lizzing!"
Key Facial Expression:
Wine/Food Pairing:Whatever wine Angie throws in your face during an episode of Queen of Jordan, paired with Night Cheese.
What to wear while watching it: A tux… it's on after six — what are you, a farmer?
What to yell at the TV: "Good God, Lemon!"
The Tao of Lemon: "I believe all anyone really wants in this life… is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich."
Inspired Halloween costume: If you're single, go as Liz Lemon as Princess Leia on jury duty. If you're in a couple, go as James Franco and his body pillow Kamiko.
Who to Watch it With: Your equally nerdy, comedy-loving friends.
Who Not to Watch It With: Someone who doesn't know how to shotgun a pizza if the moment calls for it and/or a Canadian.

As the benignly clueless receptionist, Cerie, on the breakout comedy hit "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006- ), actress Katrina Bowden launched a career based on a unique premise for a beautiful actress - playing a character whose potent physical attractiveness is played for laughs. Whether it was grown men gazing at her as she walks by, or her own unwittingly revealing wardrobe choices, Bowden's character represented a comedic step up from most screen sirens - she appeared to seriously have no idea of the effect she was having on the lascivious men and jealous women in her workplace. The result of Bowden's unique take on an old caricature paved the wave for the young actress to have a long and viable career as a talented comedic actress.
