Ex-partner Nick Loeb is taking their custody battle a step further.
The custody battle between Sofia Vergara and her ex Nick Loeb over the actress' frozen embryos has reached ridiculous new levels as a right-to-live lawsuit is filed on their behalf against Sofia. Loeb wants the embryos to be allowed to be born and subsequently raised by him alone.
Sofia Vergara's embryo custody battle rages on
Nick Loeb previously sued for custody of the embryos last year, but it was revealed yesterday (December 6th 2016) that the lawsuit has developed further. The female embryos have been listed as plaintiffs under the names Emma and Isabella and, given that the case is being followed in Louisiana, they've got a good chance of success given that the state has various pro-life laws.

Sofia Vergara, appearing on a radio talk show, has spoken out about the lawsuit involving her embryos.
Sofia Vergara has opened up about the embryo lawsuit with her ex-fiancé, businessman Nick Loeb. Although the suit was filed last year, the news only came to light last month. The 42-year-old Modern Family star has remained silent about the suit since the news broke but she has spoken out whilst appearing on Howard Stern's SiriusXM show on Monday (4th May).
Sofia Vergara addressed the embryo suit whilst appearing on Howard Stern's radio show.
The Columbian-born star also revealed how she made the hunky actor fall in love with her.
Only a month after Sofia Vergara split from ex-fiancé Nick Loeb, it was reported that she was already embarking on a new romance with actor Joe Manganiello, and as they are now in a solid relationship the 'Modern Family' actress reveals some of those awkward first dates.
Joe and Sofia began dating in July
Well, this particular incident wasn't a date, just more of an awkward situation. Unfortunately, when the 'True Blood' star first met Vergara at the White House Correspondents Dinner in May, he was quite clearly photographed checking out her behind, and Vergara addressed this when appearing on the Meredith Vieira Show.
Sofia Vergara is easily the highest paid star in television, earning $37 million last year.
Who said cutthroat corridors of U.S television was a man's world? Sofia Vergara has proved that the era of the disgustingly high-paid leading man (Laurie, Sheen) may well be over, by not only topping the highest paid TV actress list for a tired consecutive , but taking the top-spot overall.

The actress earned $37 million last year, that's some $11 million more than the top-earning TV actor Ashton Kutcher. The Colombian-born star earns a reported $325,000 per episode for 'Modern Family' - way off the reported $1 million per episode deal that Kaley Cuoco signed on 'The Big Bang Theory' - but Vergara's earnings come from endorsements and licensing deals with Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, AT&T and Synthroid. As Forbes note, the actress is also the co-founder of Latin World Entertainment - a huge multi-million dollar episode.

Jon Favreau's 'Chef' is probably the best movie to be released this weekend.
Jon Favreau's latest movie Chef is very...now. It follows the story of a fine-dining chef in Los Angeles who gets tired of the shackles imposed on him by a money-mad restaurateur and so decides to follow his heart and cook from a food van. It's basically the story of every chef in London. If you love Pitt Cue Co, Hawksmoor, Meat Liquor and Bubbledogs, then you'll love Favreau's new movie.
Jon Favreau [centre] in 'Chef'
The rise of the food blogger has created a new critical landscape for restaurants, and some writers - including Chris Pople of Cheese & Biscuits - can now heavily influence how a new eatery performs upon opening.
Continue reading: Jon Favreau Tackles Food Bloggers In Hipsterish 'Chef'
The stars of food comedy 'Chef' are seen arriving on the red carpet at the movie's Tribeca Film Festival premiere in New York.
You've had your warning, now watch the trailer below
You know the supermarket rule – don’t go food shopping when you’re hungry? Well the same applies to watching the trailer for Jon Favreau’s Chef. The beautifully shot, beautifully prepared food will have you attempting a rare venison sandwich with horseradish foam and wild rocket puree, and we all know that can’t happen.
It's all about the food in 'Chef'
The story for ‘Chef’ sees Carl Casper (Favreau) given an ultimatum: cook Dustin Hoffman’s menu or don’t cook in his restaurant. Of course, the film would be pretty boring if he went ahead gave in to his mean boss, so instead he decides to fall off the wagon somewhat, become the laughing stock of an already snobbish culinary zeitgeist, and win back his respect and friends through an intrepid street food venture.
Continue reading: 'Chef' Trailer: Do Not Watch While Hungry [Trailer + Pictures]
Carl Casper is a chef working at one of the top restaurants of Miami. Food is his ultimate passion in life and so he is utterly heartbroken when his boss forces him to cook a 'safer' menu, bypassing his usually ambitious creations. The change came about when it was found that a formidable food critic would be visiting the establishment, but, as it turns out, the menu switch was a bad idea and Carl doesn't take his subsequent criticism very well at all. After reading his bad review and going viral, he sends out a badly judged post over Twitter and is thus forced to leave his post at the eatery. Instead, he sets up his own food truck, delivering his food on wheels to anyone willing to try a new culinary experience, and along the way uses it to reconnect with his young son and ex-wife.
'Chef' is brilliant comedy about self-discovery, passion and drive. The movie's main star, Primetime Emmy nominated Jon Favreau ('Cowboys & Aliens', 'Iron Man', 'Elf', 'Zathura: A Space Adventure'), was also responsible for the direction, production and screenplay and it made its premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March. It is due for UK release on June 18th 2014.
For Favreau, chefs are blue collar rockstars, and that's something he wanted to capture in this film
When you’re the man behind the camera of $1.2 billion worth of films (Iron Man 1 & 2) then you keep on churning out sequels until you can buy a country and name it after yourself, don’t you? Jon Favreau doesn’t: he walked from Marvel to make films about Cowboys & Aliens, and ‘Chef’, which you can see more of with the fantastic new clip below.
Behind the scenes of 'Chef': from left to right, John Leguizame, Jon Favreau, Bobby Cannavale and Roy Choi
‘Chef’ tells the story of a disgruntled chef, dismissed from his flagging restaurant and seemingly back to square one in the cookery game. But instead of stepping getting back on the ladder – ready to climb and climb – our chef decides to take his cooking to the streets by opening up a food van, capturing the current zeitgeist of ‘street eats’ enjoyed by foodies and hipsters alike.
Carl Casper is a well-known chef from Miami who works in a trendy LA restaurant much lauded by critics. However, when one particularly formidable critic shows up to taste Casper's food, his culinary creativity is thrown into question when his boss requests he make something a little more 'safe' than his usual creations. Unfortunately for Casper, he doesn't take criticism too well and loses his cool in a tirade which is captured on film and subsequently goes viral across all social mediums. Now jobless and unsure of his own passions, he returns to Miami to set up a food truck by the name of El Jefe Cubanos in a bid to regain some of his ingenuity and, of course, respect. The journey also sees him reconnect with his wealthy ex-wife and young son as the family attempt to rebuild the bonds between them.

Fioravante is paid to sleep with beautiful women, what could get stale?
The trailer has been released for upcoming comedy drama Fading Gigolo, the movie that sets out to test one man's endurance of having someone find and pay for women to sleep with him. It's actually skint florist worker Fioravante who gets paid for sex though, as the movie twists the common assumptions of prostitution.
John Turturro's Fioravante Is Paid To Sleep With Beautiful But Lonely Women.
John Turturro's character decides to accept a rather unusual job offer from his friend Murray (Woody Allen) who recently learned that his dermatologist and her friend were looking for a stranger to try out new sexual experiences with. After Fioravante consents, Murray charges the women $1,000, sends his friend to carry out his assigned task whilst keeping a portion of the cash for himself.
Strapped for cash, handsome but middle-aged bookshop worker Fioravante decides to accept an offer of an unusual job from his friend Murray, who recently had a brainwave after his dermatologist and her friend admitted to wanting a new sexual experience with a stranger. Murray charged them a huge $1,000, offering the modest Fioravante the chance to be a male escort for a large paycheque while keeping a portion himself. After realising that he quite enjoys the experience of worshipping single and lonely women in the bedroom, Fioravante continues his exploits with Murray and ends up meeting a particularly shy woman named Avigal. Consumed by loneliness, Avigal seeks comfort and recognition, but just how deep does her solitude go?

'Machete Kills' boosts an ensemble cast as Robert Rodriguez's action comedy looks to pack a punch at the theatres.
The first Latino action hero returns to the big screen as Danny Trejo reprises 'Machete Cortez' in 'Machete Kills' and yields his deadly blade in this sequel to the 2010 film 'Machete'. The upcoming movie is also the third based from the exploitation 'Grindhouse' fake trailers and is directed, produced and co-written by Ricardo Rodriquez.
Trejo as the Mexican spy 'Machete Cortez'
Other actors who will be reprising their roles are Michelle Rodriquez as the one -eyed rebel, Jessica Alba and Tom savini, and the new comers to the bloody epic are Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson, Lady GaGa, Antonio Banderas and many more.
Continue reading: 'Machete Kills' With Its Star-Studded Cast In An Action-Packed Sequel
Over the top, excessive action apparently isn't for everybody, as 'Machete Kills' is given a savage write-up by critics.
Machete Cortez is back, and this time he's got the President of the United States for a boss as he embarks on his most outrageous and dangerous adventure yet. In the sequel to 2010's Machete, Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo are both back as director and star respectively, in a film that has plenty to offer if you're up for a B-movie spectacle. It not, you should probably heed the words of warning from most critics, and avoid Machete Kills at all costs. Just go see Gravity or Captain Phillips this weekend instead.
Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez star in the outlandish action movie
The most badass killer every known (in this movie universe at least), Machete has teamed up with the President of the USA (played by Charlie Sheen, who adopted his birth name, Carlos Estévez, for the credits) to stop a plot from anarchist mentalist named Mendez (Demian Bichir) to destroy Washington D.C. with a nuclear bomb.
Watch the video below; beware, it's ridiculous.
Lady GaGa is all-action at the moment. She appeared as the sultry siren in the Machete Kills trailer, and now the film has a music video to match. Aura is a strange amalgamation of dance, pop and retro, much like the film is a mix of action, comedy and all out gore.
The Sultry Lady Gaga in Machete Kills
The lyric video features kitsch silhouettes of the female figure, graphics of the song’s lyrics spliced with footage and action from the film itself including scenes from her co-stars Charlie Sheen, Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Amber Heard.
Robert Rodriguez returns to Grindhouse territory with this B-movie spoof sequel that mixes hilariously knowing jokes with painfully stiff storytelling. Fans of the genre will love it, but those expecting a sense of narrative momentum will find themselves bored when the plot stalls about halfway in. And the rampant misogynistic smirking should be too much for anyone.
After the events of the 2010 original (which itself was based on a mock-trailer from 2007's Grindhouse double bill), the former Mexican agent Machete (Trejo) has been secretly working with US Immigration. After a bust goes badly wrong, he is assigned by the US President (Sheen, performing under his birth-name Carlos Estevez) to capture psychotic drug kingpin Mendez (Bichir) in Mexico. Working with his beauty-queen contact (Heard), he heads into the danger zone pursued by the master-of-disguise Camaleon and immediately running afoul of a vindictive brothel madame (Vergara). Along the way he discovers that the real villain is a defence contractor (Gibson) back in America, so he asks his former partner-in-crime (Michelle Rodriguez) for some help.
Every scene overflows with hyper-violent action and near-naked babes with guns. And the fast-paced mayhem is frequently played out as wacky slapstick, with movie in-jokes and a general sense of chaos. Aside from the amusingly straight-faced Trejo, the actors play everything for laughs. Gibson chomps mercilessly on the scenery during his overlong scenes, while Sheen plays with his own personal history while winking knowingly to the camera. There's also a continuous parade of A-list cameos, including Gaga, Gooding and Banderas hamming up their silly scenes for all they're worth.

The 'Modern Family' star will star and executive produce the upcoming ABC comedy, 'Raising Mom'
Sofia Vergara has been handed her own series by ABC; an autobiographical sitcom about a young mother and her 21-year-old son who have to learn how to live life separately following a tightly-knit upbringing. The show, titled Raising Mom, has been influenced by Vergara's own experiences with bringing up her own son, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoll Vergara, and is being written by Raising Hope scribe Christine Zander.
Sofia has a good relationship with her son, Manolo
The news of the news series was broken by Deadline last week, who also reported that Vergara will serve as executive producer on the show alongside Zander, Kenchy Ragsdale, Ben Silverman, Jimmy Fox and Luis Balaguer. The show's premise will follow the mother-son dynamic between a single mother and her 21-year-old son who learn that both have done a good job in raising each other over the years as the pair get ready for a life of independence from each other for the first time. The show was devised by Balaguer, who came up with the premise along with Vergara after watching the two grow up together over the last two decades.

'Machete kills - that's what he does!'
It’s a good thing Machete and its stars don’t take themselves too seriously, because one look at the reviews would be enough to kick off a pretty serious binge. Still, the latest in the franchise – Machete Kills – is more midnight popcorn than early evening wine.
Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez in Machete Kills
The film sees Danny Trejo return as ex-Federale agent Machete. He is taken on by the President of the United States (a certain Charlie Sheen, or Carlos Eztevez -we’ll get on to that later) for an especially dangerous mission. He is charged with a stopping madman revolutionary and eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has a plan to plunge the world into a dystopian nightmare.
Machete Cortez is a formidable former member of the Mexican Federal Police and happens to be one of the most badass, ruthless killers ever known. He is enlisted by the US President on a new mission to save the world, being asked to find a crazed anarchist named Mendez and prevent him from launching a nuclear weapon at Washington DC. However, it soon begins clear that he can't trust everyone around him and discovers that an arms dealer named Luther Voz may actually be the real villain in the situation as he is hatching a dastardly plan to cause chaos in every country in the world. There's something no-one's telling Machete about this business but he'll damn well try to find out what it is.

Sofia Vergara has become the highest paid television actress for the second year in a row, according to Forbes.
According to Forbes, the list is categorised on a specific time period, "...June 2012 through June 2013-and counts cash only for projects completed and contracts made good on during that time". Vergara's estimated earnings during this time are $30 million, gaining her the title of the highest paid television actress of 2013.
The earnings aren't completely based on the 41 year old's 'Modern Family' salary, in her case it takes into account her endorsement deals with Diet Pepsi and Covergirl as well as her clothing line with Kmart. Marketing deals such as these show that Sofia is doing more than the girls from 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' - who own a successful clothing line with Sears. The sisters are well known for their endorsement deals but even they are not able to compete with Vergara as Kim only raked in a 'modest' $10 million.

Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman has been successfully treated for cancer.
Actor Dustin Hoffman can now breathe a sigh of relief after the surgery he underwent to treat his cancer was a success. With little confirmed information regarding the nature or type of cancer, Hoffman's fans should simply be relieved that the twice Oscar-winning actor is still alive and well.
Dustin's Wife Lisa Has Supported The Actor Through Cancer.
In a statement reported by People magazine, Hoffman's publicist Jodi Gottlieb confirmed that the 75 year-old is doing well: "It was detected early and he has been surgically cured," she said, "Dustin is feeling great and is in good health." Apparently the actor and director will undergo doctor-recommended preventative treatments to minimise any chance of a recurrence of what was allegedly throat cancer in the future.

The actress is currently on vacation with her husband in The Hamptons, but has been kind enough to share a few photos
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara left little to the imagination when she posted a rather revealing picture of herself on Twitter showing off a considerable amount of her ample behind. The actress is currently on vacation with her fiance Nick Loeb in The Hamptons and shared the snap of herself lapping up the sun on her Twitter account on Saturday (June 15).
Vergara has been keeping her followers updated on Twitter whilst she was away in the exclusive New York retreat, but it was her last update that was accompanied by the caption "Where @keegankillian and @luisbalaguer cant find me!!!☀☀."
The 40-year-old actress has a penchant for stripping down and sharing the photos online - which we aren't going to complain about any time soon - and has recently been telling papers about her tendency to be a bit wild. The beautiful Latin AMerican actress told US Weekly recently, “I do everything in moderation. I try to enjoy life … I don’t believe in crazy diets or exercise. I believe everything in moderation.”

Machete Cortez, a former Mexican Federale agent, returns on another mission to kill as the President of the United States calls him up to recruit him to take down a dangerous and wealthy arms dealer named Luther Voz who is planning to launch a destructive new weapon into space and wage war on his own planet. With his expert training and a history of taking down the biggest crooks of the world, he is the US government's only hope at saving the planet. However, with understandable issues from being double-crossed several times before, can he really know who to trust on his latest endeavour?

The Smurfs are back in a brilliant movie sequel that sees them take on evil magician Gargamel for a second time as he makes another attempt at harnessing the blue power of the Smurf people. This time, he has successfully created a group of similar creatures called Naughties, which he has plans to use to lure the impressionable Smurfette to him in order to finally win their potent magic. Aware of the kidnapping, the rest of the Smurfs band together on a rescue mission alongside their human acquaintances Patrick and Grace Winslow who agree to help them get to Smurfette and convince her that she belongs at home.
Right Said Fred, the nineties duo responsible for the number one 1991 hit 'I'm Too Sexy', has got involved in the promotions for the new film, marking the celebrations of Global Smurfs Day on June 22nd 2013, the day after 'The Smurfs 2' is released on the 21st. They have recorded a brand new track called 'I'm Too Smurfy', which isn't too dissimilar from their debut hit as you'd imagine, in a video featuring people in Smurf costumes getting funky and the duo painting their faces blue in honour of the Smurfs' return.
The Smurfs return following a harrowing experience lost in New York while being pursued by the evil wannabe wizard Gargamel in 'The Smurfs'. Their plight is not over, however, as Gargamel will stop at nothing to harness the power of the blue creatures. Currently an icon of sorcery in Paris, he creates two Smurf-like creatures called Naughties who he uses to tempt the impressionable Smurfette in a life of mischief as she holds the valuable secret of the spell to turn the Naughties into real Smurfs. After she is kidnapped, her family and friends embark on a mission to save her, whether she wants to be or not, and enlists the help of their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow to take down Gargamel once and for all and lead Smurfette back on the straight and narrow.

Apparently the JoBros are fans of the 'Modern Family' actress.
The Jonas Brothers (remember them?) have a new single out after a long hiatus and they claim that the inspiration for this one was quite an unusual one.
The upbeat peppy song does sound similar to the pop anthems that first made the JoBros famous, but they’ve come out with a brand new image. According to Nick Jonas “Pom Poms” was one of the last tracks they wrote for the album, with the intention of creating a brighter song to balance out some of the darker material on the record. On a special called “Jonas Brothers: Live with MTV”, the trio explained their inspiration behind the song. Joe joked that it was written with “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara in mind and Nick agreed. Of course, it was all in jest.
Whether or not the song was about the actress though, it’s already gaining momentum online and there’s even talk about a Jonas Brothers comeback. The trio haven’t exactly been keeping still since they first rose to prominence three years ago, of course. According to MTV, while Joe has been working on some solo music, Kevin has starred in his own E! reality series “Married to Jonas” alongside his wife Dani. Meanwhile, Jo, the youngest brother has been performing on Broadway. Now the trio are just about ready for a reunion it seems and with the new album ready and waiting to thrill teenage girls (or maybe they’ll be aiming for a new demographic now?) it won’t be too long before the Jonas World Tour either.
The actress has no qualms about turning to science to have a baby.
Sofia Vergara is planning ahead – way, way ahead apparently – and keeping her eggs on ice. The 40-year-old actress already has a son from, Manolo Gonzalez, from her previous marriage, but her current boyfriend, 37-year-old Loeb doesn’t have any children. You see how the frozen eggs can come in handy then. Vergara told ABC News that it wasn’t an emergency, since she already has her son, but that she just wants to plan ahead. She might want to expand her family with Loeb.
For now, at least, the eggs remain on ice and Vergara is left to dote over her only son. In the interview, she also talked about the scare she experienced during the Boston bombing. Luckily, Manolo wasn’t in the city at the time: "I was very fortunate my son had come on the train to New York to visit his girlfriend [this weekend]," she said. "He immediately texted me because he knows I can get crazy. It's unbelievable. It’s heartbreaking. So much unnecessary pain. Hopefully, they can overcome this horrible thing."
In a chat with Us Magazine, Vergara also shared her opinion about having a kid at her age. The actress has no problem with turning to science for a bit of help, since nothing happens naturally anymore. When asked by the magazine how far along with the process she was, Vergara explained that her eggs were already in the refrigerator, ready and waiting and that they will be fresh, if and when she needs them. We’ll leave you with the delightful mental image that that probably conjured up.

Modern Family star Sophia Vergara will be the latest to join the select clique of Hollywood moms this year.
Kim Kardashian might have sparked another wave of celebrity babies!
Modern Family star Sophia Vergara might be starting a family of her own.

Scorch Supernova is a highly respected astronaut who also happens to be a brawny blue alien from the planet Baab.

However, Scorch's strength and bravery is tested when the BASA chief Lena informs him of an SOS call from one extremely dangerous planet. In spite of Gary's strong warnings, Scorch sets out to rescue his fellow alien from whatever danger might be lurking but finds himself trapped and imprisoned by the planet's inhabitants; one of which is the alien-hating Shanker who vows to rid the universe of all alien lifeforms.

The Peoples Choice Awards give the general public a chance to decide whose acceptance speech they want to hear. Gone are the stuffy critics and 'experts' who normally plump for how good a film, or concentrate on someone's artistic integrity when making award decisions; in are the general public, who like wardrobe malfunctions and when people treat each other awfully.
So who's up for public recognition of the entertainment kind? Perhaps one of the biggest categories is 'favourite movie actor', in which Channing Tatum, Johnny Depp, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Will Smith are all in the running. We think Channing will receive the nod because of his recent Sexiest Man Alive award, but we hope Joseph Gordon-Levitt will win, because of his excellent work in Looper. On a more light-hearted note, the people will have Jane Lynch, Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Sofia Vergara and Zooey Deschanel to choose from in the best comedy actress category. We think Kayley Cuoco will win despite being under pressure from Deschanel in her kooky New Girl role. The Big Bang Theory's clout should prevail, though.
The film portion of the night features a list of blockbusters, and is 80% comprised of movies beginning with 'the'; people like stuff with 'the' stuck on. The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Huntsman are fighting it out. We hope Snow White wins. We won't tell you why. Catch the awards live on CBS, January 9th, 2012.
Two-and-a-Half Men is the show that forks out the most for its lead actors; last year Charlie Sheen topped Forbes' list of TV's Highest-Paid TV Actors list with $40m and this year its new lead Ashton Kutcher has taken over the prestigious spot, albeit with a decidedly smaller sum of just $26m.
Hugh Laurie for his role in 'House' and Ray Romano, for a now cancelled 'Men of a Certain Age' were runners up to Kutcher, each raking in $18m. We'd all be happy to plum for second place in this race. Aside from Laurie, it was entirely sitcom actors that scored the bigtime in this list, with stars of 30 Rock, Last Man Standing, Men, and The Big Bang Theory - Alec Baldwin, family favourite Tim Allen, Jon Cryer, and Jim Parsons and Alan Galecki, respectively, all managing to make it into the top ten.
However, as much as it's always great to celebrate in the successes of others, for women in the equivalent category, financial success seems to not be quite so easy. Sophia Vergara from Modern Family is this year's female top earner, but at just (ha! just?) $19m, she's lagging behind Kutcher by $7m! Plus, the genres in which these women find their careers is far more varied than men - still including comedy, but also drama, reality and medical dramas all find their way into the list. Desperate Housewives is one show that truly shows women multitasking, and Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria, two stars of the show, both appear in the top ten. Although men still earn more than women, it seems the ladies can take the prize for versatility.
The story starts as we watch Larry, Moe and Curly (Hayes, Diamantopoulos and Sasso) growing up in an orphanage, watched over by Mother Superior (Lynch) and several rather frazzled nuns (including Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson and Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David). But when the orphanage is threatened with closure, the clueless trio heads out to raise the cash needed to save it. They immediately run into the shamelessly wealthy Lydia (Vergara), who hires them to bump off her husband so she can run off with his business partner (Bierko). But of course everything goes crazily wrong.

As the countdown to 2012 begins, an executive (Swank) is frazzled about a technical glitch in the iconic Time's Square ball-drop. Meanwhile, a courier (Efron) is trying to help a frumpy secretary (Pfeiffer) achieve her dreams. A chef (Heigl) is catering a glittering event while trying to avoid her rock star ex (Bon Jovi), whose back-up singer (Michele) is stuck in a lift with a lovelorn slacker (Kutcher). A mother (Parker) is worried about her teen daughter (Breslin). And a tuxedoed millionaire (Duhamel) is trying to get to an important event in the city.

The Three Stooges is a comic caper, following the lives of three men who were left on the doorstep of an orphanage when they were babies. This updated version of the 1930s vaudeville act of the same name sees the familiar characters of Larry, Moe and Curly try to save their childhood orphanage from closure. In the process, they become embroiled in a bizarre murder plot, as well as finding themselves somehow starring in a phenomenally successful reality TV show.

Mumble (Wood) thinks he's inadequate as a father since his non-dancing son Erik (Acres) feels like such an outsider. So when Erik runs off to visit the guru Lovelace (Williams) and meet flying penguin star Sven (Azaria), Mumble follows.
Meanwhile back home, an ice-shelf collapse has trapped the entire Emperor colony, so now Mumble, Erik and Lovelace's colony must find a solution. Perhaps some passing humans can help. Or a gang of tetchy sea elephants. Or maybe it'll be down to two renegade krills (Pitt and Damon) who are trying to find their individuality.

Life is idyllic for the tiny blue Smurfs, whose village is hidden from view in a European valley. But the evil-but-hapless wizard Gargamel (Azaria) wants to capture their magical essence and, when he finds their village, he chases six of them through a vortex that dumps them into Manhattan. Lost in the city, the Smurfs befriend Patrick (Harris) and his pregnant wife Grace (Mays), whose help they need to both escape Gargamel and regenerate the vortex to get home.
Meanwhile, Patrick's under pressure from his boss (Vergara) to come up with an ad campaign.

While the Emperor penguins of Antarctica find their mate by singing their 'heartsong', Mumble is different. Instead of singing, he has a talent for tap-dancing and it was this that won the affections of his old friend Gloria. His unique gift also helped ban overfishing in Antarctica which saved the fish population from extinction.

Mark Wahlberg is perfectly cast in "Four Brothers" as an angry, scruffy Detroit greaseball who returns home for the first time in years to avenge his foster-mother's murder during a convenience store robbery.
While not an actor known for his emotional range, here his soft-featured scowl embodies resounding heartbreak without giving an inch on the kind of toughness and bravado that makes his character a loose cannon. How loose? He even tells the investigating cops (one an old friend played by the sublime Terrence Howard) who come to pay their respects that "I'm not here for the funeral."
Reunited with his three brothers -- fellow former delinquents adopted by the kindly but adamant Evelyn Mercer (Fionnula Flanagan), and played by Garrett Hedlund ("Troy") and talented rappers-turned-actors Andre Benjamin and Tyrese Gibson -- it isn't long before they're literally beating a path through the ghetto toward any suspects they can get their hands on. And it isn't long after that before a conspiracy begins to emerge (the details of which are never entirely clear) involving bankruptcy and insurance money, connections to the mob, and crooked cops and city councilmen.

2002's "Dogtownand Z-Boys" (now available in an excellentDVD) was an adrenaline-rush history of the Zephyr Skateboarding Team, adaredevil band of teenage surf bums who were the first to take wave-ridingmoves to the streets and empty swimming pools of drought-stricken SantaMonica in the early 1970s.
This handful of young turks (oneof whom became the director of that film andthe writer of this one) invented the board-gripping, back-scratching, wall-climbingstyle that launched the entire rebel culture of extreme sports -- but youwouldn't know it from "Lords of Dogtown," which concerns itselfmore with fabricated love triangles, unhappy home lives and rivalries thatformed when fame came calling.
While the performances of the young cast members -- keyZ-Boys are played by John Robinson from "Elephant,"Emile Hirsch from "TheGirl Next Door" and Victor Rasuk from "RaisingVictor Vargas" -- are multifaceted, they sometimes have the under-rehearsedfeel of a bawdier after-school special. Or maybe that's just the clumsyexpository dialogue: "Hey, I think we should start a skateboard team,man," says one shirtless, long-haired dude to another. "There'smoney in this!"
