Word has it that a 4-year-old came up with the idea for this unapologetically silly action movie. And it's a proper guilty pleasure. From the director of Ice Age, it never takes itself seriously, so disarms even the grouchiest members of the audience with its energetic mayhem and characters. It's very childish, and sometimes rather too cute, but it's also a lot of fun.
In rural North Dakota, an oil drilling company has unearthed something from deep underground. And it's teenage loner Tripp (Lucas Till) who discovers a huge octopus-type creature that turns out to be friendly, intelligent and rather adorable. It immediately takes refuge in the empty engine cavity of the truck Tripp is building, and it provides more power than Tripp imagined. All of which drags Tripp's popular-girl lab partner Meredith (Jane Levy) into the adventure as the oil company boss (Rob Lowe) sends his henchman (Holt McCallany) to find and dispose of the creature before the environmental officials can shut him down. But his chief scientist Bill (Thomas Lennon) is having doubts about killing the two endearing monsters they've already captured.
Yes, it sounds like a premise a 4-year-old might come up with, mixed with an ecological message for our times and some surprisingly impressive digital effects. The script breezes through all of this, as the cast and crew blithely charge forward through a series of laughably entertaining action set-pieces. It's never terribly thrilling, but the scenes are so good-natured that they keep us smiling. Till and Levy are charming heroes, and their strong chemistry is thankfully allowed to simmer in the background. Pepper is initially the film's antagonist as Tripp's harsh sheriff stepdad, but he hands over these reins to an enjoyably evil Lowe. And Lennon provides some nice moments of comic relief as the sensitive scientist won over by these blobby beasts.

Everything from his career to his sex tape were fair game.
Rob Lowe is the latest subject of the infamous 'Comedy Central Roast', whereby a number of comedians, fellow actors, musicians and public figures took to ripping him apart piece by piece on Monday night (September 5th 2016). His friends and co-stars refused to hold back even in regards to his most scandalous moments.
Rob Lowe parodies his own sex tape on his roast
The 'Parks and Recreation' star was mocked (to put it way too lightly) for everything from his waning career, his good looks, and his past indescretions including his leaked sex tape which featured him having sex with a 16-year-old girl in 1988.

Comedy Central's 'Roast of Rob Lowe' is broadcast on Labor Day.
Rob Lowe has spoken of his relief of having survived his first professional roasting, after he received humorous taunts and jibes at his expense during filming of the upcoming Comedy Central special this weekend.
“I'm just glad there's something left of me,” Lowe told reporters backstage after the filming of the roast in Los Angeles on Saturday (August 27th). “I think I'm in tatters still up there on that stage.”

Lowe received the honour in a small, star-studded ceremony on Tuesday.
Hollywood mainstay Rob Lowe has been honoured for his contribution to cinema with a star on the iconic Walk of Fame. He unveiled the 2,567th such paving stone in a small star-studded ceremony on Tuesday (December 8th).
Lowe, 51, rose to prominence in the 1980s with films like St. Elmo’s Fire, Oxford Blues and The Outsiders as one of the so-called ‘Brat Pack’, alongside a new wave of actors like Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy.
However, Lowe transcended that label where some of his cohort failed, and went on to star in a number of other memorable movies and TV shows, including Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Wayne’s World and, most recently, stealing the limelight in Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra as a pill-popping plastic surgeon.

The 50 year-old former teen idol admit that Bieber "makes really good music," but has "tremendous empathy" for him.
Unlike many of the legions of critics Justin Bieber has, Rob Lowe is one of the only people who experienced similar amounts of fame when being a teenager.
When drawing from his own experiences the 50 year-old seems to be more understanding towards the 'Baby' singer's recent personal downfall, rather than publically slamming him.
Lowe recently sat down with Oprah Winfrey, which aired on Sunday night (April 6th) to promote his new book 'Love Life', but it didn't take along for the interview to switch gears and talk about Bieber's issues.
Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe have left 'Parks and Recreations' but after months of fans preparing for their departure, nothing can quite prepare one for the bitter sweet moments throughout their final episode.
Rashida Jones promised fans there was going to be "a lot of crying (on and off screen) during tonight's Parks and Recreation." And the episode certainly delivered!
Rashida Jones tweeted about the emotional episode.
Fans of the show have known about the inevitable goodbye scenes since July of last year but, for those who love Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe's characters, Ann and Chris, yesterday's (20th January) episode was still heart rending.

'Parks and Recreation' star Rob Lowe arrives outside the New York studios for 'The Late Show With David Letterman' and is seen signing autographs and talking to fans. He doesn't stop for photos on his way into the building by smiles and insists he'll come back for pictures after the show.
Rashida Jones will be leaving the show Parks and Recreation, the series' creator Mike Schur confirmed on Wednesday (31st July). She is not the only actor to be bidding Pawnee farewell as her on-screen boyfriend Rob Lowe is also leaving.
Rashida Jones is leaving the show Parks and Recreation during season 6. She will be joined by Rob Lowe, according to an announcement made by creator Mike Schur. The pair will exit by the middle of season 6, definitely before episode 13.

Parks & Rec loses a two actors at the end of this season.
Parks and Recreation – Amy Poehler’s masterpiece of an ABC comedy is set to lose a pair of castmembers after its current season. Rashida Jones – who plays the conscientious nurse-turned-Pawnee-city-council member and Rob Lowe – the council’s extremely health-conscious city manager – are both leaving the show at the end of its current 13-episode run. The lineup change has been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. It will happen sometime in February 2014. Tears will be shed.
No explanation was given for the actors' departure.
Jones and Lowe’s characters have been dating on and off for some time in the series, so this could at least provide an easy way for the writing team to tie up the loose ends around their departure. Fans might find additional comfort in the numerous cameos, already announced for this upcoming season. During the premiere, on September 26 this year, the action will take place in London and it will reportedly involve appearances from Heidi Klum and the Happy Days icon Henry Winkler.

Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will be leaving NBC's comedy 'Parks and Recreation', sources have confirmed.
Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will be leaving NBC's comedy Parks and Recreation in the middle of the sixth episode. The serie's creator, Mike Schur, released a statement on Wednesday (31st July) confirming actors would be leaving and that they would be missed.
Rob Lowe at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences hosts a 'Wayne's World' Reunion in L.A.
Parks and Recreation, which airs on NBC, centres on Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) who is the deputy director of the Parks and Recreation department of the fictional town of Pawnee. She is supported by a number of friends and employees, including local nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) and a former state auditor Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe). Parks and Recreation also features Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Audrey Plaza, Paul Schneider and Chris Platt.
Parks & Recreation actor Rob Lowe will play one of America’s most beloved and famed Presidents; John F. Kennedy, in an upcoming docu-drama detailing the events of his assassination in 1963. Lowe will star along-side Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays his wife, Jackie, in the made-for-Tv feature for National Geographic, with the programme airing in November this year to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Jfk’s death.
Lowe and Goodwin have had their first character portraits taken and released online this week, with Lowe recreating the famous, pensive-looking portrait of the former-president for his press-shot, whilst Goodwin takes on a side-angled shot as she pulls off a convincing looking Jacqueline Kennedy. Although his facial make-up is somewhat ambiguous in the promo shot, Lowe also looks incredibly convincing as the 35th US President, looking eerily like his presidential character. The actor has also gone on to commend his co-star this week, Tweeting on Tuesday (June 11) this week, “Just saw @ginnygoodwin as Jackie Kennedy in the sad and awful blood-stained dress. Extremely emotional.”
The Tv-movie, titled Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot, is to follow the same formula as the popular Killing Lincoln, with both docu-dramas based on the Bill O’Reilly books of the same name. As with the Lincoln feature, O’Reilly was on hand to adapt the story for the screen and to the book. It will follow the lead-up and the immediate after affects of the day former-Marine Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed the President as he was being paraded through the streets of Dallas, Texas in an open top car on 22 November 1963.

An extraordinary tale of friendship and romance is set to hit our screens as the secret affair between world-class entertainer Liberace and his faithful young assistant Scott Thorson is brought to film. When Scott met the flamboyant pianist almost 40 years his senior, he was spellbound by the grandeur and luxury amidst which he lived. Equally, Liberace was charmed by the youth and beauty he saw in Scott and embraced him as a companion, a brother, a son and, later, his lover. However, the romance was not without its turmoil, with the couple regularly engaging in blazing rows mostly due to drugs and alcohol on Scott's part, the secrecy of their relationship and Liberace's shocking insistence that Scott undergo facial surgery to resemble a younger version of himself. Over their five year relationship, this unlikely pair went through every emotion possible while Liberace vehemently denied any passion between himself and his driver.

We couldn't find a single negative review for this picture
Side Effects was supposed to be Steven Soderbergh’s last film, but the sequence of events that led it from being a TV movie to a fully fledged feature conspired in the director’s favor, as Behind The Candelabra is much better way to say goodbye.
The critics have well and truly fallen in love with Soderbergh’s depiction of Liberace in Behind The Candelabra. “Buffed to a typical HBO high gloss, Candelabra is a visual feast,” say USA Today. “It shines brightest in those moments where it captures the rhythms of a relationship in its first blush of affection and its seemingly inevitable collapse.” This never happens, but if you peruse the reviews of this film on Rotten Tomatoes, you won’t see a green splat; just shiny red tomatoes. With 93%, this film is certified fresh. “Who'd have thought Michael Douglas and Matt Damon would make such an astonishing, convincing on-screen couple? Steven Soderbergh, that's who...” say Empire Magazine. “If showbusiness is the business of showing off, nobody did it better than Liberace,” comment the Financial Times.
This biopic about the pianist-showman Liberace may look almost painfully camp, and sometimes it is, but it's also a remarkably honest depiction of an intimate relationship. In the hands of Steven Soderbergh, the flaming excess is never made the butt of the joke; instead we get a strong dose of gritty humour, dark emotion and even a revealing look into the smoke and mirrors of show business. And the astute performances from both Douglas and Damon continually catch us off guard with their resonance.
It was 1977 when the 57-year-old entertainer (Douglas) met 17-year-old Scott Thorson (Damon). There was an instant spark as Liberace, known to his friends as Lee, offered Scott a job as a companion: on the stage, in his bed and running his household. But their relationship wasn't easy. Lee coaxed Scott into joining him under the knife of a plastic surgeon (Lowe) who reshaped Scott's face to look like a younger Liberace. Afterwards, Scott became addicted to a variety of drugs, which strained their romance to the breaking point. And it didn't help that Lee had an eye for ever-younger boys, all while insisting to the world that he was straight. "People see what they want to see," he said.
While the production design overflows with Liberace's "palatial kitsch" design sensibility, Soderbergh keeps the story and characters grounded, finding humour in unexpected places (Lowe's over-lifted face is hilarious). And despite the outrageous costumes and hair, the actors never camp up their performances, which cleverly holds the story in a delicate balance between sharp comedy and involving drama. In this sense, LaGravenese's script is particularly clever, peppering the dialog with telling details that gives us a remarkably well-rounded picture of the interaction between these men. And it continually resists becoming another stereotypical gay romance, celebrity biopic or drugs odyssey.

The actor will be joined by Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Trachtenberg in the follow-up to 'Killing Lincoln' that is expected to air in November
Actor Rob Lowe will take on one of his most famous roles to date, with the Parks and Recreation star lined up to portray the 35th President of the United States in the upcoming Bill O'Reilly helmed docu-drama Killing Kennedy. Variety reported that Lowe will be joined by co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald, Lee Harvey Oswald's wife.
Fresh from the success of the National Geographic's Killing Lincoln one-off, the network will follow-up the show with a tell-all account of the nation's second most famous assassination of all time. Clearly they have spared no expense by bringing in one of television's biggest stars to portray the deceased President, the show will be based on the O'Reilly novel of the same name and will follow the same formula used in Killing Lincoln.
Variety's report goes on to state that filming for the one-off special will begin in June this year, with the show expected to air on Nat Geo in November to coincide with the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. The docu-drama is likely to be one of many special on the assassination of President Kennedy, half a century after he was assassinated by former-Marine Oswald whilst being paraded through the streets of Dallas, Texas in an open top car.

See Michael Douglas, Matt Damon and Rob Lowe as you've never seen them before in Behind The Candelabra!
Steven Soderbergh lands in sunny Cannes this week with his HBO movie Behind the Candelabra, a biopic of the flamboyant pianist Liberace, played by Michael Douglas. The American entertainer's personal life was embroiled in scandal with rumors of homosexuality which he always vehemently denied - this despite his close relationship with a young chauffeur named Scott, 39-years his junior.
Scott, played by Matt Damon, becomes an important figure in the pianist's life and he is even persuaded to under facial surgery by the pianist. It led to a desperate struggle with drugs and various fiery arguments between the pair. "I didn't want to do a biopic in the traditional sense. I wanted to go narrow and deep," Soderbergh told the Los Angeles Times of the movie, "It's Alice going down the rabbit hole. That's a much more elegant way to get into Liberace's life." On his love scenes with Damon, Michael Douglas told the New York Magazine, "Once you get that first kiss in, you are comfortable.Matt and I didn't rehearse the love scenes. We said, 'Well - we've read the script, haven't we?"
Watch the 'Behind the Candelabra' trailer!
Liberace was an American pianist and entertainer well-known for his flamboyant lifestyle and the sense of grandiose he carried about with him. His personal life was embroiled in scandal with rumours of homosexuality which he vehemently denied. While everyone saw him as a figure of extravagance and individuality, behind closed doors was a turbulent relationship with a young chauffeur 39 years his junior. Scott Thorson became an important figure in Liberace's life; not only as a driver, but also like a son, a brother and a best friend. They embarked on a 5 year affair that saw Liberace persuade Scott into facial surgery to resemble himself, something which led to a desperate struggle with drugs on Scott's part and many a fiery argument between them. Just what was life for Liberace like behind the glitz and glamour of his luxurious existence?

Jonathan; Ron; Richard and Tim met at college 25 years ago and have been friends ever since. Jonathan is a doctor; Ron is a banker and Richard is a English teacher at a high school.

Why? Well, besides star Aaron Eckhart's flawlessly sumptuous performance as Naylor, I'll just quote a line from Naylor himself: "The beauty of argument is that if you argue correctly, you're never wrong." In the end, Nick Naylor is not just right; he's unquestionably the most passionate, most seductive man on the screen, and everyone else just looks limp and dull beside him.

Tommy "Boy" Callahan (Farley) has just graduated from college after seven years, much to the delight of his beloved father Big Tom (Brian Dennehy), buy no sooner does the widowed Big Tom marry his second wife (Bo Derek) than he drops dead of a heart attack. Now Tommy Boy has to rescue the family's brake shoe business before it's devoured by arch-rival Ray Zalinksy (Dan Aykroyd) while he also keeps an eye on the evil Beverly's schemes and her equally evil son Paul's (Rob Lowe) sabotage.

The original film takes Hinton's spare 1967 novel of young gangs in Tulsa and turns it into grand melodrama, with gorgeous CinemaScope sunsets, sweeping orchestral score, and teen scuffles that take on all the clashing importance of medieval battles. On the crap side of town live the working-class greasers, with their black t-shirts and slicked-back hair, always getting hassled by the socs, preppie bastards with family money and nicer cars. The film centers on the greasers, particularly the sensitive 13-year-old orphan Ponyboy Curtis (C. Thomas Howell) who lives with his older brothers Sodapop (Rob Lowe) and Darrell (Patrick Swayze). The surrogate family hanging around the Curtis' ramshackle house also includes Emilio Estevez and Tom Cruise, while their friend, born-to-lose Dally Winston (Matt Dillon) has just been released from jail. Almost as childlike as Ponyboy is his best friend, Johnny (Ralph Macchio), an angelically bruised kid from a troubled home who provides the film's most emotional moments.

Instead of Bond, it's super-groovy spy Austin Powers (Myers) making his triumphant return to the silver screen, the British secret agent frozen in the 60's and thawed in the 90's, where/when he returned to active duty. The Spy Who Shagged Me picks up right where the original left off, with Dr. Evil (also Myers) banished to space in his Big Boy statue/spaceship, and Austin settling down with new wife Vanessa (Elizabeth Hurley, in a cameo re-appearance).
Continue reading: Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me Review
It's a shame Mike Myers didn't invent Austin Powers during his "SaturdayNight Live" tenure. The occasionally funny sketch bits he stringsweakly together with about six minutes of plot in his "Austin Powers"James Bond spoofs might have played well as short gags in a recurring "SNL"routine.
Imagine, if you will, a skit in which Dr. Evil (Myers'mock-Blofeld) goes on "Jerry Springer" to confront his disgruntledson, who (god forbid!) has no ambition to take over the world. Or an episodehosted by the unbelievably beautiful yet seemingly accessible Heather Graham,in which she dons Urusla Andress' bikini from "Dr. No" and ultra-tossablehair extensions to play a CIA sexpot named Felicity Shagwell opposite Myers'ribald, randy, chest toupee- and cravat-wearing super-spy.
Continue reading: Austin Powers: The Shagged Me Review
The cameo-driven, "Mission: Impossible 2"-spoofing, movie-within-a-movie, pre-title sequence of "Austin Powers in Goldmember" is the funniest five minutes to date in this spy comedy franchise. Then Mike Myers shows up and ruins everything.
Still trapped in a skit-comedy frame of mind all these years after leaving "Saturday Night Live," his short attention span has made the "Austin Powers" movies little more than a string of brief, loosely-related set pieces which are often 98 percent setup and 2 percent punch line.
Myers goes miles out of his way to make a reference to the 1983 song "Mr. Roboto" by the band Styx, for example. Then he spends nebulously unfunny gaps between such gags to make fleeting mentions of the plot, which in this case concerns Dr. Evil -- Myers cueball goofball homage to James Bond's maniacal bald nemesis Blofeld -- teaming up with an scabby Dutch roller-disco owner named Goldmember whom Evil has transported from the 1970s.
