Lindsay Lohan hit the 'Late Show With David Letterman' last night, and the pair inevitably prank called Oprah (as one does), a gag that could have gone in a very different reaction if Winfrey wasn't so damn wise. Seriously, don't try to pull the wool over Oprah's eyes. She knows what's up.
'Lee Daniels' The Butler' is an eight-course meal of movies served all at once. The entree is a searing racial drama, haunting in its depiction of America's stained history. The other seven courses, delivered without grace, flatten the taste. Fine ingredients — a rousing ensemble and sporadically sharp script — can't make up for a cook's sloppy work. 'The Butler' is a mishmash of prestige qualifiers, unfit to dish out, but plated nonetheless.
