It was the trickle of pee heard around the world. Cannes attendees were aghast and/or amused an infamous scene from The Paperboy that shows Nicole Kidman urinating on Zac Efron; this is apparently a great salve for jellyfish burns which were covering our Ken Doll-like protagonist. (In fact the term protagonist should be used very loosely for Efron's character Jack who is mostly acted upon than active throughout.)
Lurid! Sexy! Perverse! Trashy! Whether or not it's actually effective is overshadowed by all the hubbub that's attached itself to the movie for better or worse. In fact the movie is all of these things — but that's actually not a compliment. What could have become somethingmemorable is jaw-droppingly bad (when it's not hilarious). Director Lee Daniels uses a few different visual styles throughout from a stark black and white palette for a crime scene recreation at the beginning to a '70s porno aesthetic that oscillates between psychedelic and straight-up sweaty with an emphasis on Efron's tighty-whiteys. This only enhances the sloppiness of the script which uses lines like narrator/housekeeper/nanny Anita's (Macy Gray) "You ain't tired enough to be retired " to conjure up the down-home wisdom of the South. Despite Gray's musical talents she is not a good choice for a narrator or an actor for that matter. In a way — insofar as they're perhaps the only female characters given a chunk of screen time — her foil is Charlotte Bless Nicole Kidman's character. Anita is the mother figure who wears as we see in an early scene control-top pantyhose whereas Charlotte is all clam diggers and Barbie doll make-up. Or as Anita puts it "an oversexed Barbie doll."
The slapdash plot is that Jack's older brother Ward (Matthew McConaughey) comes back to town with his colleague Yardley (David Oyelowo) to investigate the case of a death row criminal named Hillary Van Wetter. Yardley is black and British which seems to confuse many of the people he meets in this backwoods town. Hillary (John Cusack) hidden under a mop of greasy black hair) is a slack-jawed yokel who could care less if he's going to be killed for a crime he might or might not have committed. He is way more interested in his bride-to-be Charlotte who has fallen in love with him through letters — this is her thing apparently writing letters and falling in love with inmates — and has rushed to help Ward and Yardley free her man. In the meantime we're subjected to at least one simulated sex scene that will haunt your dreams forever. Besides Hillary's shortcomings as a character that could rustle up any sort of empathy the case itself is so boring it begs the question why a respected journalist would be interested enough to pursue it.
The rest of the movie is filled with longing an attempt to place any the story in some sort of social context via class and race even more Zac Efron's underwear sexual violence alligator innards swamp people in comically ramshackle homes and a glimpse of one glistening McConaughey 'tock. Harmony Korine called and he wants his Gummo back.
It's probably tantalizing for this cast to take on "serious" "edgy" work by an Oscar-nominated director. Cusack ditched his boombox blasting "In Your Eyes" long ago and Efron's been trying to shed his squeaky clean image for so long that he finally dropped a condom on the red carpet for The Lorax so we'd know he's not smooth like a Ken doll despite how he was filmed by Daniels. On the other hand Nicole Kidman has been making interesting and varied career choices for years so it's confounding why she'd be interested in a one-dimensional character like Charlotte. McConaughey's on a roll and like the rest of the cast he's got plenty of interesting projects worth watching so this probably won't slow him down. Even Daniels is already shooting a new film The Butler as we can see from Oprah's dazzling Instagram feed. It's as if they all want to put The Paperboy behind them as soon as possible. It's hard to blame them.
Producers behind the hit TV show, which stars Steve Buscemi as a corrupt politician, allowed the NYPD access to the 1920s-style set in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for a massive training exercise.
Armed officers acted out a rescue situation with cadets posing as hostages inside the show's famous Ritz Carlton Hotel location.
A helicopter swooped in to mock up the rescue of a wounded officer and six decoy terrorists were apprehended.
Lieutenant Ken Beatty, of the New York Police Department, tells NBC New York, "There were helicopters involved, ground teams moving on the boardwalk. So there was a lot going on... I've never seen the show, but there was certainly a wow factor there... We train in the Empire State Building, Liberty Island, anywhere in New York City that has the cool factor."
Sergeant Gerard Flood adds, "It looked like you were walking into the 1920s, on to the boardwalk. It was very, very realistic."
The Bourne Identity star was persuaded to take part in the Family Reach Foundation benefit by his brother, even though he's a terrible cook.
He told USA Today, "I suck... Growing up, our mother used to make us cook one night a week. I would try to manipulate my way out of it. But she was pretty good about making us do it. Beef Stroganoff was my signature dish."
The event, CookingLive!, at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in downtown New York, benefits the families of cancer-stricken kids.
The Bourne Identity star will swap the film set for the kitchen for the Food Network's Cooking Live!, on which he will serve as Chef Ming Tsai's sous chef to help prepare a six course meal.
The event will take place at The Ritz-Carlton hotel in downtown New York to raise funds for the Family Reach Foundation, which aids poverty-stricken families with their medical expenses.
The former The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star, who played lovable Carlton in the show, was inundated with calls from loved ones after rumours suggesting he was killed off began spreading.
In a post on Twitter.com on Saturday (08Sep12), he writes, "I guess FB (facebook) has a page saying I died. I wonder what people are gonna say at my funeral? It's crazy how many people are calling me about this rumor."
Ribeiro went on to thank followers for their concern, writing, "Thanks for all the love. In every situation you must find the positive."
The star, 46, was fired from his popular sitcom Two and a Half Men last year (11) following a series of bizarre antics, which began in September, 2010 when Sheen famously destroyed his suite at the Big Apple's posh Plaza Hotel while in the company of a female escort.
He has since turned his back on his hellraising and managed to get his life on track with his new TV show, Anger Management, which is set to premiere in the U.S. on Thursday (28Jun12).
Sheen's reformed lifestyle came under scrutiny on Tuesday (26Jun12) when reports emerged accusing him of turning a planned family stay at the Manhattan Ritz hotel over the weekend (22-24Jun12) into a big party.
A source told America's Us Weekly magazine, "He totally trashed the hotel room! Escorts were seen coming and leaving. In the end, Charlie was told that he wasn't welcome at another Ritz property ever again."
However, the actor's manager Mark Burg has denied the claims, insisting Sheen was on his best behaviour during the trip and enjoyed spending time with his daughters Lola, three, and Sam, eight.
Burg tells the New York Daily News, "It's not true. I spoke to the hotel and there was no damage to the room. We checked out and everything was fine. There were no escorts. There was nothing."
Allison Sitch, a public relations spokeswoman for the Ritz hotel, is also adamant Sheen has not been banned from the global chain, adding, "There has been no issue there. Mr. Sheen is absolutely welcome in any Ritz-Carlton hotel in the portfolio."
The Walk The Line Oscar winner attended an event at the city's Ritz-Carlton Hotel, where she was presented with The Gene Siskel Film Center's Renaissance Award by The Descendants director Alexander Payne.
A spokesperson for the annual ceremony says, "Reese Witherspoon is truly a Renaissance woman, demonstrated by her wide range of memorable roles in such varied films as Pleasantville, Cruel Intentions, Election, and the Legally Blonde films.
"Her extraordinary performance as June Carter Cash in Walk The Line earned her the 2006 Academy Award for Best Actress, a BAFTA, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, New York Film Critics Award, Broadcast Film Critics Award, People's Choice Award in addition to 11 other honours."
Previous recipients include Robert Downey, Jr. and Jamie Foxx.
The Mean Girls star sparked concern after reports suggested she had been found unconscious in her penthouse suite at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey, California, where she has been filming her official comeback movie, TV project Liz & Dick.
Producers failed to get hold of Lohan and called an ambulance to the scene, but the emergency workers left after discovering the actress was alive and well.
Now Lohan has taken to Twitter.com to reassure fans she's alright.
She writes, "Note to self... After working 85 hours in 4 days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & 7 paramedics MIGHT show up (at) your door... Hopefully theyre (sic) cute. Otherwise it would be a real let down... back on set."
