Cameron Diaz first shot onto the Hollywood scene like a beautiful firecracker in the fantasy comedy The Mask. Though she may have ultimately been overshadowed by the wild antics of Jim Carrey at maximum insanity, the role was the beginning of a successful career that would see her become a leading lady just a few years later. However, we may have seen the last of Cameron Diaz on the big screen without even knowing it.
Earlier this month, there was an interview with Selma Blair going around where the actress said that her The Sweetest Thing co-star and good friend had quietly retired from acting. However, she then came out shortly after to say that she was just joking. But now we have word from Cameron Diaz herself that she really has retired from acting. Read More »

Imagine if Mean Girls‘ Regina George never got hit by that bus, and instead continued along the path she’d been on before she met Cady Heron. Imagine the smug, gossipy, mean mom she’d grow up to be. That’s more or less the character Christina Applegate plays in Bad Moms, the new comedy from 21 & Over writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Together with her two besties (Jada Pinkett-Smith and Annie Mumolo), Gwendolyn rules the PTA with an iron fist.
But they aren’t the “bad moms” of the title. That’d be Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn, three stressed-out suburban moms. Fed up with the pressure to be perfect parents, they decide to indulge themselves for a change. When Gwendolyn stands in their way, they realize they’ve got to take her down. Watch the Bad Moms trailer after the jump.

There wouldn’t be a road trip in Vacation without a reliable vehicle for grown up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) and his family to take across the country from Chicago to Walley World in California. Well, reliable might be too strong of a word for the 2015 Tartan Prancer, the new family truckster in the comedy reboot.
Touted as the Honda of Albania, it comes with all the latest Albanian technology, like a CB radio, outside door handles that double as cupholders and a removable steering wheel. The Batmobile has nothing on the Tartan Prancer. Meet the new Vacation family truckster after the jump! Read More »
