"The Screen is Bigger, But Nothing is Better"

The new Entourage movie hits theaters on Friday.

But if you believe the review in yesterday's New York Times, it could land with a thud.

The Times reviewer, A.O. Scott, shows little mercy:

"It's about Hollywood, which is to say about the narcissism, neediness and sexual entitlement of men. It sometimes pretends to make fun of those things, but let's not kid ourselves. You could accuse it of glamorizing the shallow hedonism it depicts, but that charge would only stick if the movie had any genuine flair, romance or imagination."

Ouch.

What do you think? You can read the review here, if you like.

Will this stop you from seeing Entourage? Were you even planning on seeing it?

Stolen Thunder, Maybe?

Kim Kardashian took to Twitter today for a couple of f-bombing tweets.

First, she was f-ing sick.

Then she wanted a live-streaming website of her own so she can blast the f out of anyone talking s about her.

Say what you will, but that was sort of out of character for the Kimster.

What caused her to rant? No one's sure, really.

But my money says she's ticked that her step-dad's Vogue cover diminished the coverage of her just-announced second pregnancy.

By the way, the ranting was so out of character, even Twitter was concerned. Or so she says...

Say Whatabee?

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is a presidential candidate on the Republican side.

Following the internet-breaking appearance of Caitlyn Jenner on the cover of Vogue earlier this week, someone dug up a video of the governor where he addresses transgendersim in a less than embracing manner.

"Now I wish that someone told me that when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in PE. I'm pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, 'Coach, I think I'd rather shower with the girls today.'"

Watch the video for the rest of the comments.

It's pretty clear he won't be asking Ru Paul to be his running mate - if he gets that far.

Next Up in the Octagon...

Be careful what you say, Shaquille O'Neal.

During one of the NBA finals broadcasts, Shaq predicted that he could last 45 seconds with UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.

In the Octagon. Turns out Shaq's got some training in MMA and Brazilian jiu jitsu, but is he ready to take on one of the fiercest fighters ever to enter the Octagon.



The folks at TMZ caught up with Ronda at LAX after Shaq said that, and asked her about it. And she thinks Shaq could last 45 seconds.

No predictions from her on what would happen afterwards though...

Were These Comedies Written by Nostradamus?

So social media's been going wild these past couple of days about Bruce Jenner's transformation to Caitlyn Jenner.

And yesterday, social media turned up a couple of references from television comedies that may have foreshadowed the change.

First, Married With Children...



Then, Family Guy...



Someone check the writing credits - I think Nostradamus was hanging around those writer rooms.

Caitlyn Jenner Breaks Twitter Record

Caitlyn Jenner - the transformed Bruce Jenner - joined Twitter on Monday.

Within four hours and three minutes, she hit a million followers.

At this writing, she has 2.4 million followers - and has only written four tweets.

This is one of them. The record had previously been held by President Barack Obama, who joined Twittter on May 18 and hit a million followers in four-and-a-half hours.

The president even welcomed Caitlyn to Twitter - well, sort of... It even looks like he might have been among the first million.

Blessed by Carl Reiner

Carl Reiner is truly a comedy legend.

He's been a TV staple for decades.Writer, performer, producer, director - he's done it all.

The folks at HuffPost.com had him on, talking about the current state of late night television.

And he seems to like everything. Click here to watch the interview - looks like the HuffPosters don't like to share!

But he's especially fond of James Corden, new host of The Late Late Show on CBS.

And when Carl Reiner says you're unbelievable, you'd better throw that on your resume.

Can You Get More Grey?

EL James, the best-selling author of the "50 Shades" trilogy, announced her newest literary endeavor yesterday.

"Grey," the fourth book in the series, is the original "50 Shades" story, but told from Christian Grey's point-of-view.

EL issued a statement about the event, quoted by US Weekly:
"This book is dedicated to those readers who asked...and asked... and asked... and asked for this," James said in a statement. "Christian is a complex character and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It's been a great pleasure to return to my happy place-writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe."

"Grey" hits the bookstores on June 18 - if you're a real fan, you know that's Christian's birthday.

(For the record, I didn't know that - it's in EL's Instagram post.)

"JUST DO IT!"

I wish I had an explanation for this.

A minute or so of Shia LaBeouf screaming "just do it!" in front of a green screen and telling me not to give up on my dreams.

Um, thanks, Shia?

It's hard to tell what exactly he's trying to accomplish here:
  1. Truly motivate people?
  2. Score a gig with World Wrestling Entertainment?
  3. Get a sponsorship from Nike?
Yeah, I have no idea...
