John Travolta's Sister Ends 30-Year Onscreen Relationship With Scott Baio


John Travolta Scott Baio Ellen Travolta

Ellen Travolta, the sister of 'Pulp Fiction' star John Travolta, has ended a 30-year working relationship with actor Scott Baio, after playing his onscreen mother in three separate television series. Travolta and Baio became colleagues in 1981 when they landed the roles of Louisa Arcola and Chachi Arcola, respectively, on the US television sitcom 'Happy Days'. They then portrayed the same family dynamic on both 'Joanie Loves Chachi' and 'Charles in Charge'.

Travolta was supposedly going to collaborate with Baio again on his new show, 'See Dad Run', however Michele Lee, star of 'Knot's Landing', received the part instead. With Biao becoming the show's executive producer, it fell upon him to break the news to Travolta that their long-time collaboration was at an end.

Meat Loaf Attaches Himself To The 'List of Celebs Who Support Romney'


Meat Loaf Clint Eastwood Scott Baio Stacey Dash Sylvester Stallone Nicki Minaj

On Thursday night (Oct 25) during a rally for Mitt Romney held in Defiance, Ohio, Meat Loaf came like a bat out of Hell to announce himself as the latest high profile star to show their support for Romney at the upcoming US presidential elections, Entertainment Weekly reports.

The singer/actor opened up his pro-Romney statement by stating: "There has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms -- and I mean major hail storms -- in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere."

He followed up his broken-English plagued weather report with a few big ups for the Presidential hopeful, before wailing out some bars of 'America the Beautiful.' It still doesn't top Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair for an unprecedented amount of time though.

Bugsy Malone Review


Grim
Fourteen-year-old Jodie Foster had a very busy and very weird year in 1976. There was Freaky Friday for Disney, there was Taxi Driver for Scorsese, and then there was this. Thirty years after its release, Bugsy Malone, an adult gangster comedy/musical in which all the roles are played by children, can make you nostalgic for the '70s and the '30s at the same time. That this oddity was directed by Alan "Midnight Express" Parker, only makes the whole thing more bizarre. Watching the always amazing Jodie vamp it up with her co-star, '70s teen dreamboat Scott Baio, as they lip sync to tracks of the adults who sing for them is one of the stranger cinematic experiences you'll ever have. Forgive me if I pause a moment to go look up more synonyms for "weird."

Basically a story of warring gangs, Bugsy Malone introduces us to Fat Sam (John Cassisi) and Dandy Dan (Martin Lev), who are battling for turf. Bugsy (Baio) shows up at Sam's bar and meets Blousey Brown (Florrie Duggal), who wants to be a star. When the bar is raided, Dandy Dan breaks out his new weapon, a "Splurge gun" that shoots whipped cream. Bugsy and Blousey hit it off, but he's also caught the eye of sexy vamp Talullah (Foster), who always gets her man. Do you care?

SuperBabies: Baby Geniuses 2 Review


Unbearable
There's already talk about SuperBabies: Baby Geniuses 2 being one of the worst movies of all time. I can't make that claim, but it is one of the saddest movies I've ever seen. The concept of dressing up toddlers and tykes in super hero costumes, dubbing their voices, moving their lips to talk, and having them beating up bad guys... well, the whole affair made me feel like I was privy to some fetishist's fantasy sprung to life. The movie is creepy, unoriginal (remember Look Who's Talking?), and bare of any real human emotion, so the prior thought seems even more valid.

I felt sorry for the kids onscreen, who one day will be hiding this film among those dark secrets of the soul that we read about in great novels. And I felt really sorry for Jon Voight. He was one of the 1960s and 1970s signature actors, and in 2004 he's getting repeatedly kicked in the face by a seven-year-old. Does he need money? If you or I wrote a movie, could we get Voight to participate for $100 and unlimited runs to the craft services table? Someone should write him a letter or send him flowers. He's a good actor and he's starring in the sequel to Baby Geniuses with Chachi? Something is very, very wrong here.

The Bread, My Sweet Review


Grim
Love loves to love love. The Bread, My Sweet is a cutesy romance set within an Italian-American family, has a cute old matriarch (Rosemary Prinz) dying of cancer, a mentally retarded savant (Shuler Hensley), and an MBA corporate raider (played by Scott Baio!) who rediscovers his heart and soul by devoting his attention to the family bakery. What's not to love? Bittersweet to the point of cloying, and sappy past the breaking point of saccharine, The Bread, My Sweet is altogether too much Hallmark Card and not enough lived-in ethnic authenticity in the courtship.

Domenic Pyzola (Baio) is a hatchet man in the business world of unchecked ambition. In his double life, he works for the family bakery helping out his brothers. His neighbor Bella (Prinz) has become a surrogate mom, and a shoulder for him to lean on. But he won't have her forever. That soap opera device of terminal cancer rears its ugly head, and to comfort her in these ailing months Domenic proposes a false marriage to Bella's daughter Lucca (Kristen Minter). This arrangement is meant to last only until Bella passes away, but love is unpredictable and complex. Lucca and Domenic find they have deeper feeling than this straightforward business arrangement, and love loves to love love indeed...

Bar Hopping Review


Grim
Scott Baio, Sally Kellerman, Kevin Healon, and John Henson!!! Together again for the first time. And likely the last. This homage to the L.A. single bar scene has its moments, but it's mostly just pathetic. Tom Arnold narrates the action -- if you can call it that; it's really just a series of disjointed vignettes that end up in the same bar at last call -- with a snide, yet utterly ambivalent, sneer. Will Scott Baio get the girl? Where's Joanie when you need her?

Cursed Review


Zero
Friday, February 25, 2005

If you're looking for a review of "Cursed" or "Man of the House" in your newspaper this morning, you're not going to find one -- in any newspaper anywhere. Opening in theaters nationwide today, these two movies have been kept hidden from critics because, to be blunt, the studios think they're garbage and want to rake in as much money as they can before word gets out.

Of course, nobody will admit to this at Dimension Films or Columbia Pictures, which are releasing the junkers. But it's no coincidence that every movie Hollywood doesn't screen in advance -- either by not holding previews until the night before opening or not holding them at all -- is largely lambasted once critics and audiences have caught up with it.
