  • MTV Movie Awards Celebrate Fun of Films

    Jessica Alba played starring roles in "King Kong," "Mission Impossible: III" and "The Da Vinci Code." At least she did on Saturday, when she parodied the three blockbusters as the host of the 2006 MTV Movie Awards, known for taking a lighthearted look at the industry it honors. This is the awards show where a teen-is-king attitude reigns, where stars step out in jeans and use the f-word in acceptance speeches. "It's not even like an awards show," said actor Zach Braff. "It feels like a birthday party." The unconventional ceremony, held on a soundstage at Sony Studios, celebrates the...

    Hollywood's problems at the box office last year may come down not so much to quality (or the lack thereof), as many have supposed, but to taste. There are plenty of talented craftsman in Hollywood, butóand this will come as no surpriseóthe prevailing tastes in Hollywood may not match those of the general movie-going public. Just look at the films that people actually went to see last year, and compare that list to what Hollywood is now recognizing as 2005's best. The 15 top-grossing films released in 2005, in descending order, were: Star Wars: Episode IIIóRevenge of the Sith; Harry...

    The Library of Congress - Bills Resolutions ^ | 2005 | Congressman John Salazar
    In July, Congressman Salazar introduced HR 3352 - the Stolen Valor Act of 2005. His bill aims to expand federal law enforcement's ability to prosecute individuals who claim to have received military medals they did not earn. These imposters degrade the meaning of medals earned in service to our nation and sometimes use their "standing" as a medal recipient to commit further fraud and more dangerous crimes. Congressman Salazarís Stolen Valor bill already has bipartisan support. In the first week alone, more than 50 Members of Congress signed up to help defend the honor of our veterans.
  • Some Vets Condemn 'Wedding Crashers' Site

    DENVER (AP) - Some military veterans and law enforcement officials are angry about a Web site promoting Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn's comedy "Wedding Crashers." To win the affections of attractive bridesmaids in the movie, two fun-loving partiers pretend to be Purple Heart recipients. New Line Cinema's movie Web site includes a fake, paper Purple Heart to cut out, with the spoof: "Carrying a Purple Heart in your jacket guarantees you attention, admiration and plenty of free booze." "I challenge the producer of that movie to go to Walter Reed Hospital and walk through the ward and see if he...
  • John McCain's Staff in Damage Control Over 'Wedding Crashers'

    He's a movie star now. Yes, Arizona senator and aspiring presidential candidate John McCain recently made his cinematic debut in this summer's bawdy romantic comedy "Wedding Crashers." The cameo appearance may create a big-screen problem for McCain, though, and it doesn't have anything to do with his Clinton-defending cameo co-star James Carville. It has to do with the flick's thoroughly warranted R rating. In the movie, Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn portray divorce mediators who crash weddings and seduce bridal attendants. There's a fast-moving montage in the film, done in the style of a music video, where Vaughn and Wilson's...

    McCain on sexy film: 'I work with boobs every day' Republican senator defends role in breast-laden 'Wedding Crashers' Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., is defending his cameo appearance in "Wedding Crashers," the sexy comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn. "In Washington, I work with boobs every day," said McCain during an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show with Jay Leno." McCain was responding to Leno, who noted the Drudge Report ran a headline last week screaming that the Republican was starring in a "boob raunch fest." "I think that pushes the limits of his imagination," said McCain of the headline. Drudge...

    US Senator, author, presidential candidate and now movie star--Senator John McCain makes his feature film debut in 'Wedding Crashers.' And not since Richard Nixon appeared on 'Laugh In' has politics made a stranger set of bedfellows.The New Line film follows the exploits of two divorce mediators, played by Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, as they charm their way into one wedding after another.Their goal: the bed bridal attendants whose inhibitions have been worn down by champagne, tight shoes and bridal envy. In one montage, Owen and Wilson are seen throwing down giggly scantily clad women one after another.Not the most...

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 7/15/2005 | Roger Ebert
    "Wedding Crashers" is all runway and no takeoff. It assembles the elements for a laugh-out-loud comedy, but it can't make them fly. There are individual moments that are very funny. But it takes a merciless focus to make a good comedy, and the director, David Dobkin, has too much else on his mind. There are sequences involving Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson where you sense that the actors should have just broken into the cockpit and taken over the controls. There are few lonelier sights than a good comedian being funny in a movie that doesn't know what funny is.

    McCain to Star in Boob Raunch Fest," read the headline in the Drudge Report. I don't even know what that is, but it certainly sounds like something that someone who's running in a process dominated by Christian conservatives would prefer not to be caught in. It turns out McCain has a cameo role playing himself attending the big wedding in the raunchiest R-rated movie of the weekend, "Wedding Crashers." We've been exposed to the trailers and ads for weeks. My kids are eager to see it, all the more so because it is R-rated. You know how that works: It...

    NEW YORK ó This summer, hide your bridesmaids. So warns the promo for this weekend's new movie, "Wedding Crashers", which is about a couple of bachelors who show up at weddings uninvited to prey on lonely bridesmaids and especially desperate female guests. The movie cashes in on two common stereotypes about weddings: that women hate attending nuptials alone, and that men, realizing how vulnerable weddings make single women feel, use the occasions to their advantage. But how are true are these generalizations?
