Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle

Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle


There’s no doubt that drugs are bad, kids. In plenty of film scenes, we’ve seen how using controlled substances can lead to some seriously dangerous circumstances. However, there are flicks like Scarlett Johansson‘s Lucy that fuel suppressed desires to get a little blazed.

In ScarJo’s upcoming film, her character uses a wonder drug giving her access to her brain’s full potential. Lucy also features some amazing effects that we imagine will look so much better while in an altered state.

In that vein, we gathered some of the trippiest films from the 2000s and 2010s that feature mind-bending visuals and storylines that take us outside of the box.

WTF: Naya Rivera Got Married To Someone Who Isn’t Big Sean

Naya Rivera Joins Get Schooled To Recognize Student Success At Collins Family High School

Much to everyone’s surprise, Glee star Naya Rivera got married just three months after breaking up with Big Sean. The actress wed actor Ryan Dorsey on July 19 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in front of a small group of family. People exclusively reports that the two have been longtime friends, and began a serious relationship after Rivera’s brief engagement to the rapper ended in April. Now that we got all of those details out of the way, we need to take a moment to digest this news. Who is Ryan Dorsey, and how did Big Sean react to all of this?

Originally from Charleston, W.Va, Dorsey attended the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and then moved to Los Angeles, where he met Rivera four years ago. He’s appeared on TV series like Mob City, Parks and Recreation, and Southland, and will next be seen in the 2015 film Blood Father. “We feel truly blessed to be joined as husband and wife,” the couple said in an official statement. The bride wore a Monique Lhuillier gown and the groom wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit. After the intimate wedding, Naya went on Instagram to tease the rest of the world with photos of the couple’s honeymoon.

But what does Big Sean have to say? Twitter has an idea:

Congratulations, Naya! You looked gorgeous on your wedding day. As an added bonus to this beautiful couple’s announcement, we’ll leave you with these sexy selfies from the newlywed herself.

15 Years Later: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Drop Dead Gorgeous

ddggallery

The year was 1999 and by the summer, teen films were all the rage. The year kicked off with two unexpected box office success, Varsity Blues and She’s All That, before studios started pumping out hit after hit. In the same year, Drop Dead Gorgeous, a dark comedy about teenage girls competing in a local Minnesota beauty pageant, bombed at the box office. Unable to capture the same excitement as American Pie or 10 Things I Hate About You, the film quickly disappeared from theaters after earning a dismal .5 million at the box office.

It was only later, when released on DVD and VHS, did the movie become a cult classic. Similarly to Jawbreaker, which also came out in 1999, Drop Dead Gorgeous proved to be a pivotal film — introducing audiences to Amy Adams, making use of the mockumentary style — even if it was overlooked at the time.

On the 15th anniversary of the theatrical release, we talk to cast members, including Allison Janney, Denise Richards, and Mindy Sterling, who all shared tidbits from the set.

The film is a parody of the real life beauty pageant experience.

Taking place in Mount Rose, Minnesota, the film parodies the real life experiences of screenwriter Lona Williams, who grew up Rosemount. Williams was a beauty pageant survivor, winning runner up (and a ,000 scholarship) at America’s Junior Miss in 1985. Like the character Amber Atkins, Williams was only in it for the money.

“It wasn’t a dream. It was a way out,” Williams told BuzzFeed. “I used my scholarship to go to the University of Minnesota, and that was great.”

Goldie Hawn and Sigourney Weaver were wanted for the main adult roles.

Director Michael Patrick Jann and producers originally wanted Hawn as Kirsten Dunst’s mother, a role that later went to Ellen Barkin. As for Kirstie Alley’s character, the murderous Gladys Leeman, the studio wanted Weaver.

Melissa Joan Hart reportedly auditioned for Amber Atkins.

The role ultimately went to Kirsten Dunst, who followed up the role with Bring It On a year later.

Extras walked out on Denise Richards’ performance of “Can’t Take My Eyes of You.”

Richards said that a number of extras had not read the script prior to filming. Her tone-deaf rendition of the Frankie Valli hit while dancing with a Jesus doll on a crucifix did not sit well with unsuspecting audience members. “Halfway through my performance they were offended and actually walked off the set and left,” Richards told VH1. But it turned out the worst Richards was at singing, the better. “That was the fun of the movie.”

Being on set was like being at camp.

“It was like being at camp,” Richards said. “It was a really fun environment.”

The fun environment carried over to most of the cast in the film. Mindy Sterling, who played Iris Clark, echoed that sentiment. “I remember hanging out with all the girls on the set,” Sterling told VH1. She also recalled really connecting with the male cast, including Mike McShane.

Everyone had a sense that Amy Adams was a star.

Making her big screen debut, Adams was hardly remembered in the film until fans revisited the cult classic years later. However, her co-stars knew she was a star-in-the-making. “I remember Amy coming in, and immediately I was like, ‘Well, that’s it, she’s got that part,’” Jann told BuzzFeed.

Janney also remembered there was something special about her but didn’t put it together until many years later when they filmed The West Wing. “We were filming in Pittsburgh and we went out to dinner together and she was like, ‘Do you remember I was in [Drop Dead Gorgeous]?’” Janney recalled with a laugh to VH1.

The movie proved to be a breeding ground of Hollywood stars.

In addition to Adams, the film cast a number of up-and-comers, including Allison Janney (The West Wing), Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!), Brittany Murphy (8 Mile), and Will Sasso (MADtv).

Critics ripped apart the movie.

Cult films tend to come out of a dismal box office or just missing the moment. But not helping Drop Dead Gorgeous were the harsh reviews from critics, including Roger Ebert, The New York Times, and Entertainment Weekly, which gave it a “D”.

“Sometimes I wonder how anyone could have thought a screenplay was funny enough to film,” Ebert wrote. “The script for Drop Dead Gorgeous, on the other hand, must have been a funny read. It’s the movie that somehow never achieves takeoff speed.”

Despite the negative feedback from media, fans on Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a 75 percent freshness rating.

The movie came out at the wrong time.

As to why it flopped at the box office? It didn’t hit at the right time, at least, that’s according to Sterling. If it came out a few years later, maybe it would have been saved through social media much like The Notebook was when it first stalled in theaters.

The movie is not available on Netflix or iTunes.

Prepare to drop some money on the DVD copy of the film, which can be found at Amazon or big box retailer (if you’re lucky). The film has not been transferred to streaming devices despite other late-’90s cult classic, such as Jawbreaker and Dazed and Confused, finding their way onto digital providers.

10 Ways Reality TV Couples Can (Actually) Make It Work

couples-feat

Since LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are just beginning the exciting journey of reality television, we thought we’d give them (and other couples out there) a few pointers on how to make your relationship last once America is in your living room.

Over the years, we’ve seen couple after couple grow dysfunctional and fall apart once they let the cameras into their life. Whether they’re singers, actors, or professional athletes, stars in the spotlight are unfortunately prone to the lying, cheating and divorce that comes with the territory of fame. However, certain TV couples have managed to survive, emerging out of the reality TV fog happier than ever. From The Bachelorette‘s Trista and Ryan Sutter to the titular stars of Giuliana and Bill, these lovebirds are still going strong, providing us with 10 rules any reality TV couple can use to make their relationship work. We suggest they take note.

 

1. Keep hold of your traditional values.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes tells it how it is, and we like that. She has a firecracker personality, but still holds traditional values near and dear to her heart, no matter how she chooses to express them. “Your marriage is supposed to just compliment and enhance who you are,” NeNe said last year. “Like, if you want to jump over the damn moon, your partner should support you jumpin’ over the damn moon.” Despite divorcing her husband of 15 years in 2011, NeNe remarried Gregg Leakes in 2013.

Today marks Selena Gomez‘s golden birthday. As the singer and former Disney actress turns 22, we can’t help but think that she doesn’t look markedly different from when she was a kid. However, she’s not the only grown celebrity that has retained cherubic features well into adulthood.

Watch the video below to see the birthday girl talk about Justin Bieber, her on-and-off boyfriend who also looks pretty young and is still trying to shed his former saccharine image.
