Friday List: Dumbest Movie Moments

I've been saving this Friday list topic for a rainy day and, at least in D.C., that day is today. I can think of nothing I'd rather do than curl up with my laptop and a hot cup of tea and spend the day getting listy with you. To that end, please turn your attention to exhibit A: Amazing Planet's list of the 49 Dumbest Movie Moments. Though a dumb enough skydiving sequence from "Point Break" tops this list, some entries are a stretch. For instance, I don't think I'd have included Jodie Foster's space travel scene from "Contact" or "Cape Fear's" climax. Where are the moments that completely ruin the mood and shatter movie magic? Where is Patrick Swayze saying "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" in "Dirty Dancing" or "Top Gun's" Tom Cruise singing "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" or pretty much any scene from "Waterworld?" I think...

Angelina Jolie: Purty as a Picture

"Blessed Art Thou" by Kate Kretz. (Source: Kate's Studio) When I saw this painting of Angelina Jolie by North Carolina artist Kate Kretz (on display starting tomorrow at Art Miami 2007), I immediately regretted my lunch of three-alarm Tofurkey chili. There ought to be some kind of warning, you know, because a nice bland broth would've been a lot easier on my churning stomach. See, I pride myself on being a highly creative person who, if I so chose, would produce incredibly relevant, stunning art that would probably change the world in some significant way. I, however, am way too lazy to apply paint to canvas, but feel my hidden talents qualify me to compare this painting unfavorably to a velvet Elvis. To be fair, though, I sought the opinion of a real critic, someone attuned to the peculiarities of the art world, and someone who might interpret an...

Celebrity Baby Boom

Kutcher and Moore. (AP) Demi Moore, 44, already has three children -- Rumer, 18, Scout, 15, and Tallulah, 12 -- with ex-husband Bruce Willis, but in the latest issue of Vanity Fair she said she definitely plans to have more kids with Ashton Kutcher, 28. Says Moore in the article, "Once you hit three, where you're outnumbered, it's really, like, 'What's the difference between (three or) four or five?" You gotta be punking me, right? Wrong. Forget contentious foreign adoptions and Scientology births, Moore and Kutcher could be part of a quietly growing celebrity trend: families big enough to run a small farm or recreate "The Sound of Music's" Von Trapp family singers. Julia Roberts recently announced she's pregnant with baby number three, too, but she's got a ways to go before catching up with Mia Farrow -- who has presided over a family of 14 for some time...

A Desperate K-Fed Kicks Off 2007

I was a little worried about my first day back on the blog. I've been out of touch for a week -- that's like a decade in celebrity time -- and it's a brand new year. Would 2007 feel the same as 2006? Would I be thrown into some strange, altered entertainment landscape and have to get my bearings all over again? Would the subjects of so many outrageously good headlines in 2006 suddenly get their acts together, forcing me to write about something else? Kevin Federline, restoring my faith in celebrity news. (AP) Then last night, while contemplating how to hijack White House Briefing, the answer hit me. Or, rather, it hit Kevin Federline. Don't worry, the hit was a fake, courtesy of professional wrestler John Cena. See, Federline (who now says he doesn't want to be called "K-Fed") somehow found the time in his busy schedule to fit...
