Actress Kathy Najimy's billboard bid to steer visitors to her native San Diego, California away from the city's SeaWorld resort has been grounded by airport officials.
The Sister Act star shot a new poster ad for animal rights group Peta urging holiday makers to avoid the tourist attraction in light of last year's (13) Blackfish film, which highlighted the conditions in which killer whales at Seaworlds around the world live.
But San Diego airport officials have banned the billboard, which was supposed to greet visitors to the city.

Virtually impossible to market, this film isn't nearly as wacky and rude as its cast and crew suggest. Despite the presence of Rogen (Pineapple Express) and Streisand (Meet the Fockers), plus writer Fogelman (Crazy Stupid Love), director Fletcher (The Proposal) and producer Goldberg (Superbad), this is actually a warm, gentle comedy about the relationship between a mother and son. Sure, there are moments of inspired silliness, but you're more likely to feel a lump in your throat than a stitch in your side.
Rogen plays the science nerd Andrew, who has just invented an organic cleaning product and is taking a cross-country trip to find a buyer. In a moment of weakness, he invites his meddling mother Joyce (Streisand) to join him on the road from New Jersey to San Francisco. She doesn't know that he has discovered that her old flame now lives in California, and he hopes that sparking her love life might get her off his back. But their time together takes some unexpected turns, which change their relationship forever.
Even in the film's goofier segments, such as a ridiculous beef-eating contest Joyce enters in Texas, Fletcher and Fogelman keep the characters likeable and grounded. Streisand is especially impressive, delivering a layered performance that mixes broad one-liners with more internalised emotions. She's much more than just a pushy Jewish mother: Joyce is a middle-aged woman with needs of her own and real love for her son. Meanwhile, Rogen plays Andrew as a nice guy with social issues. So instead of rooting for Joyce and Andrew to sort out their relationship, or even for Andrew to sell his invention, we are more interested in whether Joyce will be able to reignite her personal life.

Actress Kathy Najimy's funnyman husband Dan Finnerty has shot a new viral video encouraging couples not to take carriage rides around Central Park.
The Wedding Planner star actually shot the promo as he followed one carriage, singing an anti-romance song and urging the couple taking the trip to climb out.
Najimy admits the horse-drawn carriage rides were one of the things she least enjoys about living in New York City.
She says, "We live in Columbus Circle and there are a lot of those carriage horses there and it's the one thing I hate about New York because they're (horses) in the traffic in the exhausts and the fumes and it's dangerous... and they died on the street.

Sister Act star Kathy Najimy shed a staggering 50 pounds (22.6 kilograms) after realising she was too out of shape for a TV movie role she had been offered.
The actress admits scenes that called for her energetic character to run, squat and jump left her out of breath and she decided it was time to watch her weight.
Najimy tells Access Hollywood Live, "I had some joint problems and so I thought, 'I should get healthy,' so I did a lot of exercise... and (ate) low-fat food."
And the star admits a zumba dance class really helped: "Zumba I really like a lot... (It works) if you have a hot teacher like I do... I get there at 11 o'clock with lip-gloss."

Vince Vaughn helped former girlfriend Jennifer Aniston celebrate her 38th birthday at a star-studded party Saturday night (10FEB07).

The star, whose birthday fell on Sunday (11FEB07), arrived at 7pm, followed a half hour later by ex-boyfriend Vaughn.
The actor arrived with a male friend and quickly ducked inside the party, joining guests Sandra Oh, David Spade, Patricia Arquette and Kathy Najimy, but made an early exit, while Aniston stayed until 11:30 pm.
The two began dating in the summer of 2005 while filming THE BREAK-UP and announced in December (06) they had officially split.

After a generation on hiatus, the crazy, ensemble-cast chase comedy is back with an MTV vengeance in "Rat Race," a cornball marathon between a dozen second-tier stars vying for a $2 million booty.
The gimmick: To entertain his high-rolling clientele, a Las Vegas hotelier -- played by John Cleese with a slightly insane, toothy-dentured grin -- recruits an oddball assortment of zealous casino tourists to dash across the desert to New Mexico in search of a bus station locker where the loot has been stashed. The runners think it's all a zany promotion for Cleese's resort, but in the penthouse billionaires from all over the world are placing high-stakes bets on who will get there first, just for rich-guy kicks.
The players: Jon Lovitz is an chintzy, unemployed soccer dad who red-lines his minivan while dragging his family along, on the pretense of a job offer so he doesn't get chewed out for ruining their vacation. He catches hell anyway when the car breaks down outside a "white power" roadside attraction and they steal Hitler's limo to complete the pilgrimage.
