Taking a few hours to watch a flick can bring you from tears to smiles in no time.
Last month, director Rob Epstein denied reports that Lindsay Lohan would play Linda Lovelace in his biopic, Lovelace. We've now learned that she will be portraying the "Deep Throat" star but in a completely different film: "Inferno." The very bubbly Anna Faris reportedly dropped out because the role was too "heavy" for her. So, what might it do to someone with LiLo's obvious issues?
During a recent appearance on The Late Show, Robert Downey Jr. joked with David Letterman about the possibility that Sherlock Holmes—the famous sleuth he portrays in Guy Ritchie's latest film—might have been gay. When Letterman asked Robert if he thought Holmes and Watson (Jude Law) were partners in more ways than one, the quirky actor answered, "Why don't we observe the clip and let the audience decide if he just happens to be a very butch homosexual?" According to PopEater, the studio isn't too happy about Robert's innuendos and are worried that he's misrepresenting the film. An insider explained,

Some of you told me I wouldn’t like Twilight, but I bought the book anyway just to see what all the hoopla was about. Well, I finally finished it, and…I appreciated the romance-factor, but I couldn’t help thinking it was giving girls the wrong idea about love and relationships. I did a feminist reading of Twilight and here’s what bugged me:
Movies from the John Hughes collection didn't just mimic but shaped an entire generation of young people. His archetypal teens (and other scamps) have come to represent how we actually remember the 1980s (a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal). While JH wrote some classic films (including Mr. Mom, Vacation, Home Alone, Pretty In Pink, Some Kind Of Wonderful), his greatest impact was in his in his directorial efforts. Here are John Hughes' most romantic films in order from least to most romantic.
The New York Times is lamenting the lack of film making in today's porn. Evidently, contemporary skin movies lack things like plot, dialogue and acting that made classics like Debbie Does Dallas, well, classics. It's all business these days. And who's to blame? Is it free, amateur porn? Is it the national attention span? Or do blockbuster movies bear some of the blame?
It's a plot as old as the movies themselves: girl meets boy, boy needs to be married for some reason or another, girl agrees to marry boy as a business-only arrangement, wackiness (and maybe a bit of love) ensues.

But one can't help but wonder when watching such movies, how many of us would do the same thing if faced with similar circumstances?
