Busy Philipps and Ali Larter - Ali Larter wearing a geometric-patterned black and white mini skirt showing her toned legs meets up with Busy Philipps in West Hollywood - Los Angeles, United States - Tuesday 2nd June 2015
Fashion icon twins Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were among the famous faces at the 2014 Cfda Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall in New York. The duo looked typically well-coordinated in loose black gowns with tied waists, slicked back hair, statement earrings and near matching clutch bags.
An improvement on 2006's The Reef, this underwater adventure doesn't hold a candle to big studio animation, but its deeply ridiculous plot is charmingly scruffy. Compared to Pixar or DreamWorks, the animation here is fairly ropey, mainly in the design stage as the artists place human faces on the fish, but the surprisingly deranged humour keeps us smiling.
In the first film, plucky little Pi (voiced by Bell) managed to banish nasty shark Troy (Logue) from the reef. But Troy has now escaped from his human captors, who beefed him up with bulking-up drugs. During low tide, he can't get into the reef, so he sends the tiny shark Ronny (Kennedy) in disguise to prepare for his grand return at high tide in four days. Ronny's main job is to prevent Pi from teaching the other fish how to harness the "power of the sea" to defeat Troy, so Ronny distracts them by staging an elaborate variety show. This disrupts Pi's bootcamp, sparking the hammy performer in his wife Cordelia (Philipps), so Pi turns to his guru, the wise turtle Narissa (Schneider), for help.
Clearly, Ronny's undersea stage show was conceived as a way for the animators to go completely wild with music and colour, and it works. These scenes are hilariously silly, packed with breakdancing prawns and jellyfish choreography. There are also movie references and watery puns (like a reference to "Buoyancé Knowles"), plus a stream of military gags, as everyone prepares for battle. Most of these jokes are funny in a way the imagery can't live up to. Animated in Korea, the direction is often awkward and the imagery sometimes plasticky.

The arrivals for the premiere 'A Case of You' at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival in New York seemed to be expecting some new arrivals as three of the women working on the movie are heavily pregnant. One of the stars, Evan Rachel Wood ('Thirteen'), showed off her bump in a floral Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress while another actress, Busy Philipps ('Cougar Town'), was looking quite far on in a black jumpsuit. The director herself, Kat Coiro ('L!fe Happens'), was snapped gleefully clutching her own bump with her husband, Rhys Coiro, in tow.
