They're Just Like Us: Celebrities Who Now Have Regular Jobs


Jonathan Bennett Gary Coleman Nikki Blonsky Charlie Korsmo

It’s sort of assumed that when a celebrity stops being famous they just retire to a celebrity island where they live out the rest of their days watching re-run of their old shows or living off royalties from that movie they starred in that one time. Who knew that they actually have to get real people jobs and go back to living like the rest of us when the acting work dries up? Mind. Blown.

Take Jonathan Bennett AKA Aaron Samuels from Mean Girls for instance. He may have been the object of desire for both Cady and Regina, but in real life Bennett is just your regular indoor cycling instructor. The former heartthrob works at an LA studio as a spinning class instructor, and has credited “group fitness” with helping him recover from the death of his mother. “I wanted to give back to the community and inspire others to be their best selves”, Bennett explained. Perhaps Lindsay Lohan could attend one of his classes.

Hook Review


Weak
In Hook, Steven Spielberg's rather odd and flat update of Peter Pan, Robin Williams plays an adult Peter Pan as one Peter Banning, a big-money mergers and acquisitions attorney who drinks too much and misses his son's little league games because there's always that one last call on his cell. It's trying to be a modern and hip fantasy with the idea that Peter is a yuppie and has completely forgotten the magic and wonder of what we know to be his rather unique childhood.

But Captain Hook (Dustin Hoffman) hasn't forgotten. Since it's Peter's fault he has a hook instead of a hand, he wants revenge, so he kidnaps Peter's children. Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts) appears. She knocks Peter on the floor, ties him into a bed sheet, and then, in a lumpen image if there ever was one, flies him over the rooftops of London into Neverland where she drops him like a sack of coal (it is Christmas) so he can rescue his children from the evils of Hook, Smee, and the rest of the gaudily-costumed pirate crew.

Can't Hardly Wait Review


Excellent
Surprisingly well-realized teen party film about the last night a bunch of high school kids have as, well, high schoolers. Follows a dozen often hilarious stories, the least interesting of which, unfortunately, is the Ethan Embry-Jennifer Love Hewitt wannabe romance. Otherwise, a really good movie and a lot of fun. Recommended.
