Tom Hanks Rita Wilson

Chet Hanks insists he's kicked his drug and alcohol habit since becoming a dad.

The 26-year-old son of Hollywood actor Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson fathered a daughter in April and she's inspired him to turn his life around and stay on the wagon.

In a video message shared with his fans on Instagram, he said: ''I want to share something today because it's about to be shared anyway in the press, which is the fact that I have a daughter. I do have a daughter, she's the best thing that's ever happened to me, she's the reason why I turned my life around and got sober. I've been sober for over a year and a half from everything.''

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 Review

OK

It's been 14 years since Nia Vardalos' warm comedy about her raucous extended family became the sleeper hit of the 2002, and now she's back with more of the same silliness. It all feels rather predictable this time around, although there are some terrific comical moments along the way. And the cast is genuinely likeable, even if the characters are fairly thin.

So after all this time, Toula (Vardalos) and her husband Ian (John Corbett) are still living on the same street as Toula's many relatives. She's also running the family cafe with her parents Gus and Maria (Michael Constantine and Lainie Kazan), who are bickering because they just discovered that they're not legally married. Meanwhile, Toula and Ian are struggling to rekindle the spark in their marriage as they both worry about the coming day when their 17-year-old daughter Paris (Elena Kampouris) goes off to university. As meddling Aunt Voula (Andrea Martin) tries to find a suitable Greek boy for Paris, everyone is planning Gus and Maria's wedding. Which of course can't be a small occasion.

None of the movie's interwoven plot threads has any tension at all in it, so the film meanders amiably along. There's never any doubt that Toula and Ian will reawaken their romance, that Gus and Maria will renew their vows or that Paris will find her independence. And without any proper conflict, the film struggles to get the audience involved in any meaningful way beyond laughing at the engaging characters. Director Kirk Jones (who made the original Nanny McPhee) occasionally tips things over into physical slapstick or full-on farce, plus several very cheap gags, but most of the humour is centred on the wacky cultural antics of these colourful family members. The actors invest plenty of charm into their roles, with Martin once again stealing the film as the uproariously over-involved Voula.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - First Look Trailer


It’s been fourteen years since Toula Portokalos-Miller had her Big Fat Greek Wedding, but now it’s time to round up the family and do it all over again. Except this time there’s a difference.

When we join Toula and Ian again, they’re now parents to a teenage daughter who’s all set to go to college (as far away from her family as possible).

As they struggle to find the balance between being good parents and making time for each other, the couple still must deal with Toula’s ever-present, overbearing Greek family.

Tom Hanks and Rita WilsonWilson and Tom Hanks have been married for 27 years.

“Who knew it would make you even closer?” Wilson told the New York Times. “You never know how your spouse is going to react in a situation like this. I was so amazed, so blown away by the care my husband gave me. It was such a normal, intimate time.”

Lena Dunham And Adam Driver On Sight For 'Girls' Season Four Premiere

The American Museum of Natural History in New York was the sight of something pretty spectacular on 5th January 2015. And no, it wasn't because Ben Stiller was running around at night with a magical tablet and entourage of historical waxworks that look oddly like famous film stars. The Museum was, however, the location for the premiere for season four of HBO's 'Girls'.

As well as the majority of the main cast, the premiere saw members of the supporting cast and various additional celebrities arriving to support the premiere. In addition to Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet and Adam Driver posing on the red carpet and with one another, 'Mad Men''s Jon Hamm and 'Star Trek''s Zachary Quinto also made an appearance. The event was similar to the way in which the premiere for season three took place at The Lincoln Centre in Manhattan and also saw a string on celebrities checking in to show support.

The Art Of Getting By Review


OK
Mopey, style-free filmmaking undermines what might have been an engaging coming-of-age movie. The bright cast holds our interest, but the corny, too-cute plot will only be of interest to pre-teen girls.

In his senior year at a Manhattan prep school, George (Highmore) can't muster up the energy to do his schoolwork. A bright kid with serious artistic talent, he's in trouble with the principal (Underwood) for failing his classes. He's also uninterested in communicating with his mother (Wilson) or stepdad (Robards). The class' hot bad girl Sally (Roberts) takes an interest in him, but he can't do much more than follow her around, even when his mentor painter (Angarano) urges him to make a move.

Jingle All The Way Review


Bad
Jingle All the Way, the Christmas-themed 1996 Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy, is ideal for kids because it's broad and silly. As for the adults watching, they should make sure their eggnog contains a little extra rum. I understand that the movie is for kids -- after all, Christmas is the ultimate kids' holiday -- but can the adults have some fun? For director Brian Levant the answer is no, meaning any viewer over the age of 10 is in for some rough sledding.

For the movie's hero, Howard Langston (Schwarzenegger), his current situation is slightly less trying. A workaholic, Howard has become a lousy husband and father, missing a series of obligations and special events. His young son, Jamie (Jake Lloyd), takes Howard's absences especially hard.

The Glass House Review


Weak

Remember that string of "...from hell" psycho flicks in the early 1990s? There was "The Hand That Rocks The Cradle" (nanny from hell) and "Single White Female" (roommate from hell). Well, here's one that was missed at the time: legal guardians from hell.

"The Glass House" is a failed spine-tingler about a teenage girl (Leelee Sobieski) whose parents die in a car crash leaving her and her little brother a $4 million trust -- money their surrogate parents are just itching to get their hands on.

Following the funeral, Ruby and Rhett Baker (Sobieski and Trevor Morgan, "Jurassic Park III") move in with Terry and Erin Glass (Stellan Skarsgard and Diane Lane), seemingly wealthy old friends of their parents who live in a expensive, ultra-modern, ultra-stylish, windows-and-concrete house in the Malibu hills.
