After her sister Shannon returns to Fresno, California following her stint in rehab for sex addiction (which in turn came after she was fired as a schoolteacher), Martha takes it upon herself to help her get a fresh start. She invites her to stay with her and gets her a job as a hotel maid in Fresno Suites where Martha also works. It isn't long before Shannon relapses big time, and her failure to maintain responsibility results in her accidentally killing a hotel guest, who also happens to be an Olympic hammer-thrower. She manages to persuade Martha to help hide the body, but before they can get very far they are discovered by a couple named Ruby and Gerald - and they want $25,000 in three days to stay quiet about the incident. The only option they have is to commit more crime, and so they rob a sex shop in order to flog the stock and make up the money. They're hardly professionals and they'll be lucky to escape this mess scot free, but maybe Shannon can finally learn to think about others before herself.

After seven seasons, it’s time to say our teary goodbyes to Pawnee
It’s all over for ‘Parks and Recreation’ sadly, as the acclaimed series ended its seven season run last night, with final episode, ‘One Last Ride’. The comedy had received numerous accolades during its tenure on NBC, as well as amassing a devoted fanbase and helping elevate the careers of stars Amy Poehler and Chris Pratt.

Appearing on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ immediately after the final episode ended, the cast along with the show’s co-creator Michael Schur, dished on some of their storyline pitches which didn't end up making the final series.
When a priceless painting is stolen with the presumable intention of being sold to fund terrorist activities, England needs a hero. Enter, Mortdecai. Lord Charles Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) is a well-known and barely liked art dealer. He is also on the verge of bankruptcy. Well, 'on the verge' may be a little too generous. Mortdecai's extravagant lifestyle ensures that he is in desperate need of money - so much so, that he is willing to take on the job of tracking down and returning the painting. Or, perhaps, he'll steal it himself when he gets the chance. Either way, he'll have to get his hands on it first, and that is going to be far from easy. Or safe.

Without Aubrey Plaza's voice, Grumpy Cat was considerably grumpier and a bit more mysterious.
Tardar Sauce, better known around the internet as Grumpy Cat might look like the most annoyed, over-it-all animal to ever walk the earth, but don’t let it ever be said that she isn’t good to her fans – or the press for that matter. Ahead of her new movie – Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever – the perpetually dour cat hit San Francisco, did 11 interviews with various news outlets and, of course, a meet and greet with some of her 7 million+ devoted fans.
She might only have one facial expression, but it's pretty priceless.
The event was intended to coincide with Macy’s Holiday Windows, an annual event where adoptable cats and dogs are showcased in the department store's windows. Tardar Sauce (which, bar the borderline slur, might be an even better name than Grumpy Cat), even posed – posed – for some photos with her adoring fans. Forgetting the fact that she only actually has about one pose, this might be the cutest thing you’ve read all week.
Christmas is entirely overrated and Grumpy Cat's new movie will show you why.
Good morning (depending on your time zone), it’s time for some inner conflict re: Grumpy Cat’s upcoming Christmas movie. If you haven’t heard of the furious feline, crowned ruler of the internet, I’ll chalk that up to your internet privileges being a bit recent and send you off to get learned.
Introducing Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat.
For the rest of you... here’s the new trailer for Grumpy Cat’s Angriest Christmas.

Grumpy Cat is graduating from the computer screen to the television screen when she stars in a Lifetime movie entitled Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.

Shia LaBeouf is well-cast in this freewheeling combination of comedy, romance and action. He plays a scruffy guy with no plans and nothing to lose, lost in a strange culture while falling in love with the wrong woman. It's not a particularly original premise, and much of what happens feels wildly improbable, but the characters and situations are so entertaining that we can't help but hold on for the ride.
It opens in Chicago, where Charlie (LaBeouf) watches helplessly as his mother (Melissa Leo) dies in hospital, asking her what he should do next. Then there she is appearing to him, telling him to visit Bucharest. "That's weirdly specific," he replies, but he follows her advice, and on the flight over has another encounter with a dead person. This one asks him to look up his daughter Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood) and give her a message. Of course, Charlie is instantly smitten, but tries to ignore the fact that Gabi's psychopathic husband Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen) looks easily capable of murder. As does the mobster club owner Darko (Til Schweiger) Charlie has a run in with while out on the town with his youth hostel roommates, two chucklehead Brits (Rupert Grint and James Buckley).
As the title suggests, Charlie feels like death is inevitable for him, especially now that he seems to have caught whatever that kid from The Sixth Sense had. LaBeouf gives Charlie just the right mix of hapless loser and quick-thinking resourcefulness, and his chemistry with Wood is tetchy and fun to watch. Meanwhile, the scene-stealing supporting stars Mikkelsen, Schweiger, Grint and Buckley add a terrific mixture of comedy silliness and dark peril. This seems to be director Fredrik Bond's main goal here: to blend genres from grim drama to sweet romance to goofy slapstick to Taken-style action violence.

While zombie rom-coms aren't original (see Shaun of the Dead or Warm Bodies), this take on the genre has such a deadpan tone that it feels refreshingly unpredictable. While the plot sometimes seems like it's going to spin completely out of control, writer-director Jeff Baena (who wrote I Heart Huckabees) holds it together with clever twists and turns and smart, witty dialogue. And the terrific cast helps balance the humour and horror with a hint of emotional depth.
It opens as soulful teenager Zach (Dane DeHaan) is grieving about his recently deceased girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza), who was killed by a snake bite. As Zach and Beth's parents (John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon) help each other get over the shock, they are startled when she arrives back home as if nothing happened. Utterly unaware that she's undead, Beth can't understand why Zach is looking at her strangely, while her parents become super protective, refusing to let her outside for fear that someone will spot a dead girl walking around. Then Zach begins to notice that Beth isn't the only person in town who has come back to life. And when he runs into old friend Erica (Anna Kendrick), Beth's jealousy seems to trigger a full-on zombie invasion.
By focussing on the warped relationships between the characters, the film keeps the audience both involved and entertained. The humour is a mix of bone-dry dialogue and riotously nutty visual gags that escalate as the story progresses. And there are constant wrinkles in the plot, such as how Beth conveniently can't remember breaking up with Zach before she died. Or how Zach's gung-ho brother (a scene stealing Matthew Gray Gubler) reacts to the growing threat of the walking-dead. And by combining real heart with silly comedy and even some genuine scariness, filmmaker Baena manages to make some sharp observations about both love and grief.

With zombie movies steadily taking over the cinema, ‘Life After Beth’ strives to stand out from the undead crowd.
Zombie movies are as old as cinema itself, kicking off with 1930s hits like 'White Zombies' and 'The Devil's Daughter'. The genre came to mainstream prominence with George A. Romero's 'Night of the Living Dead' in 1968, after which the undead onslaught has been fairly unceasing. But a subset is just as venerable: the zombie comedy, or zom-com, can trace its roots back to 1941's 'King of the Zombies' and 1945's 'Zombies on Broadway'. More recent examples include Peter Jackson's 'Braindead' (1992) and 'Zombieland' (2009).
The most memorable recent zom-com is obviously Edgar Wright's 'Shaun of the Dead' (2004), which introduced a further sub-genre: the zom-rom-com. This paved the way for the likes of the Spanish romp 'Juan of the Dead' (2010), 'Warm Bodies' (2013) and 'All Cheerleaders Die' (also 2013).

More nude photographs reportedly of another group of female celebrities have been leaked online. The latest victims of what appears to be the same group of hackers as the August leak include Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Avril Lavigne and Mary-Kate Olsen.
The FBI may be hot on the trail of the hackers (or so we hope) but that hasn't stopped what appears to be the perpetrators of 'The Fappening' from leaking yet more nude celebrity photographs.
Kim Kardashian has reportedly become a victim of the hackers.
