Never one to mince his words, Mike Huckabee attacked Best Actress winner Natalie Portman for glamorizing single parenthood. Clearly he's just jealous she looks better than him in a tutu.

Huckabee was speaking on conservative commentator Michael Medved's radio show on Monday when he launched his critique. Medved brought up Portman's best actress acceptance speech, saying that is was "really a problem" that Portman was so visibly pregnant. He quoted Portman as saying "I want to thank my love and he's given me the most wonderful gift," responding that "He didn't give her the most wonderful gift, which would be a wedding ring."

Huckabee agreed with Medved, saying that it was "troubling" the way Portman and "other Hollywood starlets" boasted of having children out of wedlock, and that it "distorted the image" of what being a single mom is really like. "Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care," said Huckabee. "It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of children out of wedlock." The potential presidential candidate didn't think the fact that Portman is engaged to the father of her child was enough.

Portman met Benjamin Millipied on the set of Black Swan, the movie for which she won Best Actress at the Oscars, where he was working as a choreographer and dancer. He also plays her on-screen dance partner in the film. In her acceptance speech, Portman thanked her fiancé "who choreographed the flim, and has now given me my most important role of my life."

Portman is yet to comment on Huckabee's attack. With the baby due soon, she probably has more important things to think about.

Poor Matt and Meredith. Even ripped paper is funnier than they are!

The hosts of the Today show tried their best to charm 10-month-old Micah McArthur, YouTube's latest favorite "laughing baby," when he visited their show on Friday, along with his parents Marcus and Amanda, but he wasn't having it.

Baby Micah became a hit when his dad uploaded a video of him laughing hysterically over the destruction of a job rejection letter. Unfortunately for the morning hosts, they just couldn't replicate the baby's joy a second time around.

The original clip is definitely cute, so it's easy to understand why the video has been viewed almost 6 million times. Then again, if we've learned anything from YouTube, it's that babies love to laugh over ripping paper, and the Internet loves laughing babies. So Matt and Meredith just might get a shot at making the next baby-sensation crack a smile.

Movie Synopsis:
A sheltered chameleon, living as an ordinary family pet, faces a major identity crisis. After all, how high can you... aim when your whole purpose in life is to blend in? When Rango accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt -- a lawless outpost populated by the desert's most wily and whimsical creatures -- the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly finds he stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt -- until, in a blaze of action-packed situations and encounters with outrageous characters, Rango starts to become the hero he once only pretended to be.

Helmer Gore Verbinksi (Pirates of the Caribbean) directs this family-oriented animated adventure starring the voice of Johnny Depp as a family pet who leaves the comfort of home in order to explore the outside world. John Logan (The Aviator) provides the script for the Paramount Pictures production. Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, Ray Winstone, Harry Dean Stanton, and Ned Beatty provide the voices for the rest of the cast.

Movie Info:
Rango 2011 Movie is an Animated movie .Rango 2011 Movie is all about fun comedy.Johnny Depp is going to be the main chreactor.In the film, Rango is a pet chameleon who lives in a terrarium. He has long thought himself a hero, but then finds himself removed from his contemporary American southwest surroundings and ending up in an Old West town called Dirt, which is populated by various desert critters garbed like characters out of a spaghetti western. As he’s always thought himself a hero, Rango establishes himself as the lawman, strolling the streets as a sheriff-like character. Unknown to him, the “good guy” role doesn’t do very well in Dirt — with a whole cemetery filled with good guy tombstones. But that doesn’t stop Rango from trying, constantly seeking to fit in with his surroundings, no matter how challenging. At a certain point in the narrative, Rango will come to question everything about himself. Beans (Isla Fisher) Rango’s female counterpart and friend of Missy.

Movie Review:
The cast, led by the crack-voiced Depp and the Dolly Parton--channeling Fisher, is flat-out flawless. But that's not surprising; they're all gifted veterans. Rango, though, is the first animated feature from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) and the special-effects wizards at ILM. These novices built on the motion-capture technology used in The Polar Express and 300, and somehow they figured out how to turn pixels into natural western landscapes; this looks like the most gorgeous live action movie. The scaly skin on its reptiles and the filthy hair on its rodents have a realism that's tactile, even if you wouldn't want to touch them.

And it's in glorious 2-D, so the images retain their full, sere radiance. No goggles, no gloom. And no competition for the coolest, orneriest, funniest, best-looking movie of early 2011.

Hollywood movie online English movie online Comedy movie Romantic movie online movie Review movie story Fantasy Movie Adventure Movie Hollywood Movie Take Me Home Tonight Movie Take Me Home Tonight Directed By Michael Dowse

The film follows the adventures of recent college graduate Matt Franklin (Topher Grace), his twin sister Wendy (Anna Faris), and his best friend Barry Nathan (Dan Fogler) as they attempt to come to a conclusion about what they should do with their lives. Matt also pursues his dream girl Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer) at a wild Labor Day party in 1988 by telling her that he works for Goldman Sachs when in all actuality, he works at Suncoast Video.

Topher Grace and Anna Faris star in It's All Gone Pete Tong screenwriter/director Michael Dowse's coming of age comedy drama concerning a rowdy group of recent college graduates who venture out for one last night of fun before accepting the responsibilities of adulthood.

Take Me Home Tonight is an upcoming American retro comedy movie. The movie was previously titled Kids in America, directed by Michael Dowse.
The movie stars Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Teresa Palmer, Dan Fogler, Chris Pratt and Robert Hoffman. Also appearing in the movie is Nathalie Kelley and Michelle Trachtenberg.

Movie Info:
Generally, when a film sits around as long as “Take Me Home Tonight” (formerly known as “Kids In America”) has (filming wrapped way back in 2007), the perception is that it’s a road apple. But as Topher Grace related in December, it was actually the film’s wanton approach to drugs that caused the hold up.

“It tested really well,” Grace said. “It’s an audience film. It’s not drama, but there was a real hesitation because there is so much cocaine in it, and our feeling at the time was, ‘You can’t do a movie about Prohibition without alcohol, and you really can’t do a movie about partying in the ‘80s, at the age these kids are, without showing cocaine use.” The movie floundered a bit until mega-producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer from Imagine Entertainment came in and encouraged Grace (who is an executive producer on the film) to keep the cut of the film with the final boost of approval coming from Ryan Kavanaugh, the CEO of Relativity Media who let them deliver the film they wanted.

Directed by Michael Dowse (”Fubar,” “It’s All Gone Pete Tong”)—no stranger to drug use in his movies—the film chronicles the events of one crazy night in 1988 when Matt (Grace) bluffs his way into a massive end-of-summer party where he hopes to impress his high school crush Tori (Teresa Palmer). And you know what? This looks like a blast. The red band trailer is outrageous fun that put a dumb grin on our face and it didn’t lose our attention when it veered to the sappy stuff at the end (also full points for the excellent, well-edited use of N.W.A.‘s “Straight Outta Compton”). It plays like an ‘80s teen movie with an Apatow-inspired sense of raunch. So yeah, count us in.
The film will hit on March 4th, and you might not want to watch this one at work.

Matt Damon and Emily Blunt headline this romantic sci-fi drama based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, and detailing the troubled love affair between a rising congressman and a gorgeous ballerina. The closer these two lovers get, the harder shadowy forces work to drive them apart by altering the very fabric of time and space.

The Adjustment Bureau Movie Review:
By Daniel Hubschman:
The age-old debate over fate vs. free will has been and always will be a tough theme to crack in any medium, but with the benefits of modern filmmaking technology the theory can be explored in ways that Philip K. Dick never imagined. However, when one relies too heavily on spectacle to tell a story, a piece of cerebral science fiction can quickly become just another action extravaganza. In this day and age there’s a fine line between the two; The Matrix walked that tightrope with style and grace while Next never found its footing in the first place. Fortunately, the precious work of novelist Dick has, for the most part, been treated with respect by Hollywood (the aforementioned Nic Cage dud notwithstanding), but that doesn’t necessarily mean movies based on his stories are completely faithful to his vision.

Case in point: George Nolfi’s directorial debut The Adjustment Bureau, an adaptation of Dick’s short story “Adjustment Team.” The film stars Matt Damon as David Norris, a successful businessman and rising political candidate who, after a chance encounter with the girl of his dreams (Emily Blunt), loses a crucial election. He happens to run into her on a Manhattan bus the following week before finding his office swarming with masked men who are “adjusting” everyone inside. Richardson (John Slattery), the man in charge, captures Norris, who unsuccessfully flees the scene after seeing behind “a curtain he wasn’t even supposed to know existed” as the enigmatic figure puts it. From that point on, Norris must live with the knowledge that he (and we, for that matter) is not in control of his own life. Rather, the choices he makes fit perfectly into “The Plan” that’s been written by “the Chairman”.

In relation to my earlier statement, I have to say that Nolfi’s picture looks stunning but his natural, urban aesthetic doesn’t overpower the story. Sleek, contemporary production design and elegant costumes characterize the high-concept story and the wraithlike agents who shape our destinies. Topically we’re dealing with some heavy material, but Nolfi and editor Jay Rabinowitz move the action along at a brisk pace that keeps you engaged and entertained without having to try. The film is properly proportioned as a chase thriller, romantic adventure and sci-fi fantasy and, thankfully, no component overshadows another.

Setting the film in the world of politics and big business helps make its larger-than-life revelations a bit more accessible (as do appearances from Michael Bloomberg, Jon Stewart and Chuck Scarborough) while providing sub-text about the corruption involved in elections and campaigns (there are conspicuous shades of The Manchurian Candidate in the movie), but the writer-director often tries too hard for broad appeal. For a film with existential implications as severe as they are here, the dialogue is at times hokey and superficial. Dick’s source material is far more abstract and Nolfi, for the sake of commercial success, panders to the palette of soccer moms and mallrats.

What’s worse is his unwarranted exposition of the Bureau, a shadowy organization whose major allure is anonymity. Some secrets are best kept and less can be so much more when crafting a mysterious atmosphere; Nolfi reaches that level of magnetic curiosity but squanders it as he reveals the truth about the Bureau and its grand scheme. On the other hand, he brushes over the technical lingo between agents Harry Mitchell (Anthony Mackie), McCrady (Anthony Ruivivar) and others without explanation, perhaps hoping that the ambiguous terminology will fool you into thinking that his script is smarter than it really is.

Even though Nolfi’s allegorical conclusions are uncomfortably ham-fisted, the chemistry between Damon and Blunt alone is enough to enchant you; this is one highly watchable cinematic pairing that should be revisited as soon as possible. Their innocent relationship blossoms organically and together they make it seem as natural on screen as it is for their star-crossed characters. Even if you have a hard time believing in higher powers or manipulative Orwellian forces, you’ll have faith in David and Elise’s fated relationship, one of the most captivating couplings I’ve seen on the big-screen in some time.

Beastly Movie Plot Summary:
“When a spell is cast on a handsome egocentric young man (Alex Pettyfer) that physically transforms him into everything he despises, he has one year to find a young woman (Vanessa Hudgens) who will love him despite his hideous form or the spell will last forever.”

The movie is based on Alex Flinn’s book of the same name. Some are touting this film as a potential competitor to Twilight, but it’s unlikely to perform as well… Still the movie Beastly may interest, if not convert, a significant part of the Twilight fans.

Movie Plot Summary:
A curse transforms a handsome and arrogant young man into everything he detests in this contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Wealthy Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has everything a teenager could want in life, but he still gets off on humiliating the weaker and less attractive. When Kyle invites his misfit classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen) to an environmental rally at their school, she questions his motivations but reluctantly accepts. Later, Kyle blows Kendra off, prompting the spurned goth girl to cast a dark spell on the swaggering egotist. The spell causes Kyle to transform into an unsightly creature that strikes fear into the heart of everyone he meets, and the only way to reverse it is for him to find someone who can love him for who he is on the inside. Subsequently sent by his repulsed father to live in Brooklyn, Kyle forges a tenuous friendship with his kindly housekeeper (Lisa Gay Hamilton) and his blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). When Kyle witnesses a drug addict in a desperate struggle with a menacing dealer, he intervenes, promising to protect the addict under the condition that his beautiful daughter, Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens), comes to live with the unsightly recluse in his sprawling Brooklyn home. Over time, the two forge a relationship that grows much deeper than anything Kyle has ever experienced before.

Watch Online Sandra Bullock opens up on life as new mom after split: 'It's made me a better person'

Sandra Bullock presented the award for Best Actor during the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday.

This time last year, newly minted Oscar winner Sandra Bullock became the most talked-about celeb in Hollywood when, just four days after the Academy Awards, her then-husband, Jesse James, was caught in a messy cheating scandal.

The "Blind Side" actress, 46, then revealed she'd been hiding an even bigger secret – new baby Louis, whom she'd slyly adopted months before with James.
Having stayed out of the spotlight ever since, Bullock made a triumphant return to the Oscars on Sunday night, wowing the crowd in a plunging red Vera Wang gown.

"It felt good," she told USA Today's Andrea Mandell, of why she chose her dress. "And I know a little guy who recognized red," she added, in a nod to her son.

While her ex has continued to land himself into the tabloids, getting engaged to his rebound-romance Kat Von D and announcing plans to release a memoir, Bullock has focused on being a mom.

"It's made me a better person," she told NBC's Maria Menounos about her new life. "I'm more patient and accommodating. I really appreciate where I am."

The actress, who took some time off from acting to focus on her son, has just started shooting "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" with co-star Tom Hanks.

"I just did my first day of work in over a year and a half on Friday," she said.
Though she was on hand to present the Best Actor award, Bullock refused to play favorites on the red carpet. "I'm voting for me to have a really good time," she told reporters, in lieu of picking any winners.

As for her own memorable Oscar night? Bullock has already forgotten it.

"When I was presenting last time I'd only had like two hours [of sleep] and I don't remember anything," she told E!'s Ryan Seacrest. "I remember none of it."

The 'American Idol' judges weren't as tough as advertised Thursday.

Call it the Thursday night massacre.
No fewer than 14 singers were sent to the killing fields on Thursday's "American Idol" - though at the last minute three got a stay of execution.
For those keeping count, that means the group promoted all week as the final Top 10 (voted in by viewers) got watered down in the last few minutes by three "wild card" additions shoved in by over-empathic judges.

It made for a long and teary two hour night.
While host Ryan Seacrest promised "drama like you've never seen before," what we got was "padding like we've never seen before."
Still, amidst the drawn-out sadistic tricks, a lucky Top 13 did eventually emerge.

Viewers picked the following:
• Lauren Alaina, the self-described 16-year-old Georgia peach with a country rock growl.
• Karen Rodriguez, a Latina with a Mariah Carey range.
• Casey Abrams, the Seth Rogen look-a-like with an equal sense of humor, not to mention the most musician-ly chops of the crew.
• Jacob Lusk, owner of the biggest voice in the competition, and the most shameless singing style.
• Thia Megia, the youngest player here, who killed by giving the simplest reading this week.
• Paul McDonald, the scratchy-voiced, quirk-meister
• Haley Reinhart, a routine R&B screamer.
• James Durbin, the multi-handicapped guy who's still trying to live down sounding too much like Adam Lambert.
• Pia Toscano, who sang the stuffing out of "I'll Stand By You" in this crucial week.
• Scott McCreery, the deep voiced country bumpkin, who's been milking that character for all its worth.
Of the 14 singers initially sent packing, the judges gave six the chance to grovel, beg, and, oh yes, sing for their lives. These included baby diva Ashthon Jones, sweet-voiced Stefano Langone, shrieky Kendra Chantelle, hunky Jovany Barreto, spitfire Naima Adedapo and Long Island's own Robbie Rosen.
In the end, only three got the call from the governor, including Ashthon, Stefano and Naima.
That left to the gallows, flame haired Brett Loewenstern, karaoke wrangler Clint Jun Gamboa, zombified Tim Halperin, wobbly Jordan Dorsey, strong voiced Lauren Turner, Colombian beauty queen Julie Zorrilla, R&B hottie Ta-Tynisa Wilson, and wash-out Rachel Zevita.

So who got rooked?

Barreto had the chops to go further, as did Turner, who killed on "Seven Day Fool" Wednesday.
On the opposite side of things, Scott McCreery only got into the Top 10 by the always strong Southern vote. And Reinhart has no place here, either. Then again, it wouldn't be "Idol" without at least a few true head-scratchers.
