Penelope Cruz Is Mistaken For Salma Hayek At The Oscars 2014


Penelope Cruz Salma Hayek

Whoever was running the Oscar’s official Instagram page last night is due a telling off after they mistook actress Penelope Cruz for Salma Hayek when they shared a backstage picture.

A picture of Penelope backstage with Robert De Niro, whom she was presenting an award with, was erroneously captioned, ‘Hayek and De Niro prepping backstage #Oscars.’ The photo has since been removed from The Academy’s Instagram page, leaving them more than a little red faced about the embarrassing gaffe.

Sacha Baron Cohen Pretends To Kill Elderly Actress In Britannia Awards Stunt [Video]


Sacha Baron Cohen Isla Fisher Salma Hayek

Sacha Baron Cohen was honoured for his contribution to comedy at the weekend's Britannia Awards in LA. The actor, who is most famous for his Ali G and Borat characters, was called to the stage by actress Salma Hayek and a wheelchair-bound elderly lady, introduced as the 87 year-old Grace Collington, the supposed former child star of Charlie Chaplin silent movies.

Hayek spoke warmly of Cohen, praising his ability to immerse himself in a role and make his comedy believable and hilarious. Dressed in a sharp suit, he leapt up to collect his award but not before Grace had given a special gift of her own. "This is the cane from City Lights," she said, handing Sacha the iconic hooked cane. The crowd "Aww'd" as the actor took the cane and began to tap dance.

Sacha Baron Cohen Leaves Britannia Award Goers Shocked After 'Killing' Veteran Actress Grace Collington


Sacha Baron Cohen Salma Hayek Charlie Chaplin

Sacha Baron Cohen shocks once again by apparently killing 87-year-old actress Grace Collington as he rolls her wheelchair off the stage during his acceptance of the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award.

The 'Borat' comedian just can't take a day off, can he? The award-giving for Excellence in Comedy started out so nicely with 'Savages' actress Salma Hayek giving a speech about how brilliantly authentic a comedian and actor Sacha is. "Sacha has consistently demonstrated total fearlessness as an artist", she told the audience. "He has literally risked his life to make us laugh." However, while the star filled audience wiped away their tears, Sacha was concocting a dastardly plan to totally ruin the moment.

On meeting Grace Collington, who appeared in Charlie Chaplin's 'City Lights' in 1931 at the age of 5 and is the oldest living actress to have worked with the star, he accepted the gift of Chaplin's actual cane from the movie and proceeded to test it out with a little tap dance. The spectators' expressions turned from delighted amusement to utter shock in seconds when Sasha proceeded to accidentally push Grace's wheelchair off the stage, apparently leaving her landing flat on her face on the floor motionless.

Sacha Baron Cohen not only left the Beverly Hilton with the highest honour awarded for comedy by the BAFTA-LA ‘s annual Britannia Awards, but also left with the audience either still in shock or holding on to their sides with laughter following an inspired practical joke. Los Angeles' British alliance was out in force for the Saturday (9 Nov.) night ceremony, and there were even a few non-Brit Hollywood heavyweights doing their best to pretent to be from the other side of the Atlantic for the awards show.

Airing on BBC America on Sunday (10 Nov.) night, host Rob Brydon had the job of handling the more raucous than usual crowd, which had plenty to do with Cohen's stunt. It began when Salma Hayek came on stage with an elderly woman to present the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award For Excellence In Comedy award. Confined to a wheelchair, she was identified as Grace Collington, an actress she said appeared with Charlie Chaplin in 1931′s City Lights when she was just 5-years-old. She very believably told the audience, “At 87, she’s the oldest surviving actor to have worked with Chaplin in a silent movie,” at which point Cohen climbed to the stage to accept the honour. The elderly woman presented Cohen with one of Chaplin's trademark canes, at which point Cohen pushed her from the stage and began his acceptance speech as 'Collington' lied motionless on the ground.

However, as can be expected from the rabble-rousing Muppets, things don't run smoothly and they manage to get embroiled in an organised jewellery heist behind which sits Kermit's mean doppelganger and his equally evil sidekick. When Kermit gets into some serious trouble after a terrible mix up, it's up to the Muppets to once again face their enemies just like they did with oil magnate Tex Richman when he threatened to drill into the Muppets' theatre for oil. Will they succeed once again? Or will their new troubles prove too much for the feisty characters?

Grown Ups 2 Review


Terrible

There was nothing remotely notable about 2010's Grown Ups, and now we have a sequel that's even lazier. Without any actual plot to speak of, the movie merely strings together a series of unfunny scenes that include cheap gags and childish vulgarity but never a punchline. Sure, the scattershot approach might occasionally touch on recognisable situations, but there isn't a genuine laugh in the whole film.

After the reunion in the original movie, Lenny (Sandler) has moved back to his hometown with pals Eric, Kurt and Marcus (James, Rock and Spade). They're planning a big party just like in the old days, complete with a 1980s theme. But their children are getting older and have their own issues, including first dates and driving tests. And in Marcus' case, the kid is a teen thug (Ludwig) he only just discovered he had. But the real problem is that the guys have just sparked a turf war with a gang of idiotic fratboys from the nearby university. And now they have to prove once and for all who's really cool.

As with the first movie, you get the feeling that everyone on screen has somewhere better to be. There's no character development at all, since there are so many people spread across so many short scenes. Hayek, Bello and Rudolph are back as the guys' wives, but get exactly one thankless thing to do each. And it's not much better for the supporting cast of A-list cameo players like Buscemi (as a driving instructor), Lautner (as the fraternity leader) and so many more recognisable actors that you begin to wonder what dirt Sandler has on all of them.

'Grown Ups 2' Reviews: Adam Sandler's Comedy Is "Lazy", "Gross" And "Lousy"


Adam Sandler Kevin James Salma Hayek David Spade Chris Rock

Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 has been universally panned by critics. The movie is released today (12th July) in US cinemas. Early reviews indicate the movie will be a huge success with teenagers across the States but will do anything but impress grown-ups.

New York Post's Sara Stewart said the film "lurches from one gross-out scene to another" without any regard for "continuity or logic". Following in a similar line of thought is Claudia Puig of USA Today, who said Grown Ups 2 is "lazy, scattershot and anything-but-mature".

The comedy sequel to 2010's Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, is ready to hit cinemas this summer. All of the film's stars showed up on the red carpet in New York last night at the premiere of the new movie that looks to be hilarious. According to Yahoo!

Directed by Dennis Dugan, in Grown Ups 2 we'll see Lenny Feder (Sandler) three years on from the events of Grown Ups where he has moved back to his small hometown with his wife (Hayek) and kids to reunite with his old friends (Rock/James/Spade) and their families. The film will focus on the kids' last day of the school year and the inevitable mishaps and unpredictable surprises. The tagline for the film is "Just because they're a little older doesn't mean they've grown up" and certainly, don't expect any high-brow humour here.

Mommy's Girl: Beyonce Owes Everything To Tina Knowles


Beyonce Knowles Salma Hayek Destiny's Child Tina Knowles

Beyonce has paid tribute to her mother Tina Knowles in a new video for Chime for Change, Gucci's global campaign for women's empowerment. The 31-year-old R&B superstar cited her mother as the most influential female in her life, saying, "My mother's gift is finding the best qualities in every human being.I think her gift is understanding and helping people get to their best selves," Beyonce said of her mother, who used to design the costumes for Destiny's Child.

At the end of the new clip, a banner asks viewers, "Who do you chime for?" It was launched in support of an upcoming concert The Sound of Change Live, which will see Beyonce, Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine and Rita Ora highlight women's issues at London's Twickenham Stadium. "Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible," said Beyonce, adding that the event was a chance to "bring the issues of education, health and justice for girls and women to the world stage."

Chime for Change was launched in February by Beyonce and co-founders Salma Hayek and Frida Giannini, Creative Director at Gucci, in partnership with the fashion label. Beyonce added, "Girls have to be taught from early on that they are strong and capable of being anything they want to be. It's up to us to change the statistics for women around the world."

Globes Globes Best Dressed 2013: Who Got It Right? (Pictures)

Ok, so we know you fickle bunch want to know who the Golden Globes' best dressed stars were for 2013. You don't give a damn about Argo winning Best Picture, or Ben Affleck winning Best Director right? You want to know who got it right on the red carpet, and we don't blame you.

One thing particularly apparent at the Golden Globes 2013 was that actresses were prepared to take style chances. Not every outfit worked out, but it was worth the risk for many of Hollywood's biggest names. Cherry red was a favored color, while cut-out dresses, black gowns and intricate detailing were in abundance.

Mixed Martial Arts Made A Huge Impression On Kevin James Ahead Of 'Here Comes The Boom'


Kevin James Salma Hayek

Kevin James' 'Here Comes The Boom' comes out this weekend, and the actor has been giving his thoughts on it. The comic actor's role sees him play a high school biology teacher aiming to become a successful mixed-martial arts fighter in an effort to raise money to save extra-curricular activities from being axed from the school he works at. Also, The Fonz seems to be appearing in it.

"I did a little karate and I was into sports but I didn't discover UFC until 1993" said James of his previous experience with MMA to Fox. "[I] was kind of blown away by how crazy this sport is. Just watching it and meeting the fighters and getting to know them." He added. "What really impressed me about them was they're like these gladiators but they're regular people when you get to know them and finding the inspiration that they're fighting for. Some of them are fighting to put food on the table for their kids."

James also quizzed about his co-star Salma Hayek, joking "I worked with Salma a few times and we just have a great chemistry with her. I adore her. Our families get along so well. She's really funny. When we got her I said, 'We got to ugly you up somehow because I've never met a nurse who looks like that,' but we weren't able to do it."


Kevin James Fails To 'Boom' In New Film 'Here Comes'


Kevin James Will Smith Salma Hayek

Kevin James' career is a very strange landscape to traverse, with a solid base in US sitcom 'The King of Queens' which was funny if not brilliant. It's also littered with the odd incredible superstar such as Will Smith, opposite whom he starred in 2005 RomCom 'Hitch' and yet marred by some very strange script choices such Zookeeper and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. The premise of his new film 'Here Comes the Boom' leaves us bewildered as to which side of the fence this movie will fall. This time James is starring with Salma Hayek, another Hollywood heavyweight.

The film follows James playing a teacher at a failing high school who chooses to take up MMA wrestling to help pay for the music program that was going to be cut due to the school's financial cut-backs. Like any average comedy- which this certainly seems to be- there are sentimental moments, punch lines that don't hit hard enough and a tenuous love story to tie it all together.

Fox News has criticized “the stabs at genuine moments” and the holes in the story and characterization. However, it does say that there are some “decent gags and laughs” . Clearly, while this film certainly isn't the fireworks that the 'boom' of the title might imply, it's not quite a misfire either. Indeed, as Fox News says “Yeah, it's just dopey comedy. We should accept it and move on.”

Savages Review


Bad

Oliver Stone takes a stab at returning to a nastier, more edgy filmmaking style, but simply can't escape his moralising ways. Indeed, this film looks great, with whizzy camerawork and kinetic editing, and a willingness to travel to some very dark places. So it's even more annoying that it's all such a cop out. Not only are the plot and characters undermined by half-hearted preachiness, but the film has an appallingly trite voice-over narration plus a climactic plot point that feels like a cheat.

The story opens with a scene of domestic bliss, as sexy beach babe O (Lively) cuddles with her hunky ex-military boyfriend Chon (Kitsch) in their spectacular seaside home in Orange County. Then Ben (Taylor) arrives home - he's Chon's best friend and O's other boyfriend, a tree-hugging scientist who has created the perfect marijuana plant. They've made their fortune as local drug dealers, and now a Mexican cartel wants in on the action. They're visited by a goon (Bichir) who makes them an offer they can't refuse. So when they Chon and Ben say no, the cartel henchman Lado (Del Toro) kidnaps O to whip boys in line. But they go into action mode instead. Calling the shots is cartel boss Elena (Hayek). And there's also a Federal agent (Travolta) working everyone against each other.

The plot has promise, and the film starts well, with sun-drenched photography and some strong character-establishing scenes with Kitsch, Johnson and Lively. But once we learn each one's main trait (Chon's tough tenacity, Ben's peace-loving passion and O's annoying stupidity), the script abandons them completely. We never have a clue why Chon and Ben would fall for O, let alone risk their lives to rescue her. We never know why Lado is such a cold-hearted brute. And we can't understand how Travolta's character has survived this long. The only person we enjoy watching is the scene-chewing Hayek, who seems to be the only actor having any fun.

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists! Review


Very Good
Aardman returns to hand-crafted clay-mation for this riotous seafaring romp.

The film is almost too crowded with witty visual and verbal gags to catch on a single viewing. Although it's also too corny to be a real classic.

The Pirate Captain (voiced by Grant) never gets any respect, especially with the Pirate of the Year competition gearing up. But his first mate (Freeman) and rag-tag crew (Tovey, Gleeson and Jenson) are fearlessly loyal. While accumulating plunder to win the award, they accidentally hijack a scientific ship and then travel with Charles Darwin (Tennant) to win a science prize in London. But this means that the crew needs to get dangerously close to venomous pirate-hater Queen Victoria (Staunton).

Puss In Boots Review


Very Good
This Shrek spin-off continues the theme of mashing up fairy tales with movie genres, and while there's a slightly stale odour lingering through this prequel, it's also witty enough to keep us laughing.

Puss (Banderas) is a notorious outlaw looking for a way to clear his name and repay an old debt when he hears that redneck thugs Jack and Jill (Thornton and Sedaris) have some magic beans that can be used to find a golden-egg-laying goose. Then he discovers that sexy thief Kitty Softpaws (Hayek) is also after them. And worse yet, she's working with Humpty Dumpty (Galifianakis), Puss' childhood cohort who once betrayed him. When Humpty convinces Puss that he's now a good egg, the trio makes an elaborate plan to get the beans together.

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists Trailer


The Pirate Captain, although relentlessly optimistic, has never won the Pirate of the Year Award. Perhaps it has something to do with his crew - many of them are pirates but some aren't (and one is a fish dressed in a pirate hat). Or maybe it's because he doesn't have much of a success rate when it comes to stealing treasure.

Bandidas Review


Bad
In the history of really silly wigs, Dwight Yoakam's long, crimped black hair in Bandidas has gone and snuck its way into the top ten. It's part of the silliness of the film that stops it from being a truly terrible movie. That being said, there's no other compliments I can ratchet out for this sucker.

It's the old west and things aren't well. Tyler Jackson (Yoakam) has used a six-shooter to take over much of the land in Mexico, and wants to use all of this to make connections and money through big time land developers. He makes a mistake when he shoots the father of Maria (Penélope Cruz) and poisons the wealthy father of Sara (Selma Hayek). After some squabbling over class, they decide to pair up as bank robbers and steal all of Jackson's money, getting tips from retired bank robber Bill Buck (Sam Shepard, why?). They eventually pair with a forensic psychologist (Steve Zahn) who starts falling for both the girls as they plan to breach Jackson's big vault.

Frida Review


Very Good
After withstanding a decade of development, a race between two competing projects, and the mural-sized egos of Jennifer Lopez and Madonna, a film biography of Frida Kahlo has finally made it to the screen. Who would have guessed that a film about a mustachioed, Mexican woman with a peg leg and an overweight, Communist husband would generate so much interest? Nevertheless Frida's producers, including star Salma Hayek, somehow prevented this unique story from becoming a disastrous vanity project and ended up with an unlikely Hollywood film.

Frida Kahlo's (Salma Hayek) first meeting with Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina) and her injury in a horrible bus accident set in motion the two major forces behind Frida. Bedridden for months in a full-body cast, the young Frida keeps herself busy--and learns to express her internal passions and pain--through drawing and painting. Falling in with the womanizing Rivera and his bohemian cadre of artists and revolutionaries deepens Frida's commitment to her painting and life with the loyal but philandering muralist. Their art carries them from Mexico to New York and back in the company of such impressive historical figures as David Alfaro Siqueiros (Antonio Banderas), Nelson Rockefeller (Ed Norton), and Leon Trotsky (Geoffery Rush).

54 Review


OK
Extremely watery and soap opera-ish, this expose on the inner workings of Studio 54 at the end of the 1970s is pretty tame. Sure, drugs, sex, money, booze, etc. were all free-flowing. But who didn't know that? The fictionalized story of a bartender's rise to power that's weaved in here doesn't make the film any better.

Desperado Review


Excellent
Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez seem to have two things in common: an affection for old surfer-style tunes, and an unconditional love of blood. Both play heavy parts in Rodriguez's eye-popping new flick, Desperado, the $8 million sequel to his $7,000 first feature, El Mariachi, which lives up to the hype surrounding it.

In Desperado, Antonio Banderas takes the role of the mariachi with no name who leads a charmed life while everything around him dies. This sequel is the story of his quest for revenge against the men who killed the woman he loved and shot him in the hand. El Mariachi travels from town to town with a guitar case full of ultra-powerful weapons, in search for tough guy Bucho, leader of the thugs. As he closes in, things get bloodier and bloodier until the final showdown where everything is revealed. Along the way, he encounters Carolina (Salma Hayek), his newfound love interest, who saves his life more than once through some impromptu surgeries.

Time Code Review


Good
Sorry, Mr. Lynch, your place at the head of the avant-garde experimental filmmaker table has been given away. Messrs. Jarmusch, Toback, Korine, and Cronenberg, you'll all be eating outside. Mike Figgis will be taking over for all of you, and don't come back.

Figgis, who earned a Best Director Oscar nomination for Leaving Las Vegas in 1996, appears to have gone a little funny in the head last year with his inexplicable and nearly dialogue-free The Loss of Sexual Innocence. Now he's fully gone off the deep end with what may be the most ambitious experiment ever: Time Code.

Frida Review


Good

Most movies about the lives of famous artists never provide a true sense of what drove the person's creativity. Even in a strongly acted, strongly directed biopic like 2000's "Pollock," for example, the closest it came to explaining why heavily splattered canvases were a breakthrough in modern art was when the painter's wife cryptically proclaimed, "You've done it, Pollock! You've cracked it wide open!"

But in "Frida," a transporting cinematic experience about the life and work of Mexican surrealist Frida Kahlo, director Julie Taymor captures the very essence of Kahlo's creative process through a wondrously rich, freeform visual language that fuses the events of her life with the imagery in her paintings so vividly that the artist's work may take on a striking new significance for anyone who sees the film.

Passionately played by Salma Hayek, who has been personally shepherding this project for seven years, Kahlo comes to life in this picture as a complicated, dynamic, proud and intelligent woman whose frequent hardships informed her art. Opening when she was a plucky high school girl (36-year-old Hayek passes for 16 with remarkable ease), Frida is established as a young woman with a spicy individuality even before the 1925 bus wreck that irreversibly altered her life.

Wild Wild West Review


Weak

It is readily apparent that Will Smith, Kevin Kline and Kenneth Branagh had a ball on the set of "Wild Wild West."

Smith -- playing gun-slinging government agent Jim West -- looks so cool in his leather pants, waistcoat, and bolero jacket and hat, that at one point in the movie he's standing next to the voluptuous and nearly naked Salma Hayek (in a largely ornamental role), and your eyes are drawn to him. It's gotta be fun to look that slick.

Kline gets to play government agent Artemus Gordon, an eccentric inventor and master of disguise, which is right up his alley. He can barely keep from cracking himself up in his introductory scene, vamping around in saloon matron drag and pancake makeup.

Spy Kids 3d: Game Over Review


Weak

Since the vast majority of the audience for "Spy Kid 3D: Game Over" has probably never seen a 3D movie with cheap, old-fashioned blue-and-red-lensed cardboard glasses, here's a three-point primer for proper enjoyment of any flick in this format:

1) Sit toward the middle of the theater. Because of the twin-image nature of 3D projection, the more off-center you are from the screen, the more you'll see eye-straining "ghosting" of images through your glasses instead of proper depth of field.

2) The left lens (red) always seems uncomfortably darker than the right (blue). Get used to it.

Once Upon A Time In Mexico Review


Weak

"Desperado," the second eye-poppingly stylish and unabashedly outlandish B-movie in Robert Rodriguez's "El Mariachi" shoot-'em-up trilogy, is one of my all-time favorite action movies, in part because it has its priorities straight: The plot was simple -- a nameless mariachi avenges his girlfriend's murder with a guitar case full of semi-automatic weapons and an endless supply of ammunition -- and the action was non-stop and over-the-top.

Antonio Banderas cut an imposing, mysterious, hell-bent, dangerous and dead sexy figure in his long hair, implacable glower and black suede bandito get-up -- complete with jangling spurs -- as he performed a limber slow-motion ballet of body-twisting, two-fisted gunfire while dodging hails of bullets from evil drug-runners. And all this was set to a steamy, dynamic south-of-the-border score by the great guitaristas of Los Lobos.

But in the new installment, "Once Upon a Time in Mexico," writer-director-editor-composer Rodriguez pollutes the action -- which is uncharacteristically erratic, incongruous and over-edited -- with a needlessly convoluted plot involving 1) a thorny coup attempt against the Mexican president backed by a cartel kingpin (Willem Dafoe) and his turncoat henchman (Mickey Rourke), 2) a crooked and borderline-loco CIA agent (Johnny Depp) playing both sides against the middle, 3) a former FBI agent (Ruben Blades) frustrated with not nailing the kingpin before his retirement, 4) a curvaceous, gung-ho greenhorn federale (Eva Mendez) with ulterior motives, and 5) yet another murder, played out in fantasized-action flashbacks, that the mariachi is out to avenge.
