Here’s the pitch: two women with grudges from their past reunite at a party years later. Fueled by alcohol and gallons of rage, they start beating the living crap out of each other. I’m not talking about some light hair-pulling or petty slapping; I’m talking full-on rampant violence that would make Quentin Tarantino wince. That’s Onur Tukel’s ‘Catfight,’ a pitch-black comedy and political satire about two women with an insatiable hunger for revenge, where head-butts and punches are their only form of therapy.
It’s not often that we get a female-driven black comedy that centers solely around its two protagonists beating the living daylights out of each other. Actually, I can’t even think of one. Onur Turkel’s Catfight stars Sandra Oh and Anne Heche as college nemeses who reunite accidentally at a dinner party, and after more than a few drinks and a couple stairwell meltdowns, they begin a tooth-and-nail battle royale that’ll last for the next few years.
“The Boogie Nights of gay porn” sounds like a high bar to live up to, but the trailer for King Cobra makes it look like the film will do just that. It’s a true crime drama about a man breaking onto the gay internet porn scene in the mid-2000s, full of sex, intrigue, manipulation, betrayal, Christian Slater, James Franco, and, really, what more could you want?

April Fools’ Day is an occasion marked by silliness. Many websites choose to celebrate by tricking their readers with goofy pranks. But for every one of these hoaxes that’s funny, there are ten more that are terrible (plus our budget would not allow us to turn the site into ScreenFlush, the #1 place on the Internet dedicated to movie toilets, for a single day). So instead, let’s honor some humor professionals; the men and women who’ve made the best comedies of the last 25 years.
Alicia Silverstone reuniting with her ‘Clueless’ director, Amy Heckerling, for a cheeky vampire comedy should be generating a fair amount of buzz. Perhaps now that the first official trailer for ‘Vamps’ has arrived online, people will begin talking the film up and anticipating its inevitable release?
There are lots of ways to feed a baby, but actress Alicia Silverstone certainly has a novel approach: she chews up the food herself before she spits it into the mouth of her young son, 10-month-old Bear Blu.
