The video was reportedly filmed in January 2020 by Lamb, who had a body-worn camera on during the police response to the call made in Lilburn, a Georgia city 25 miles from Atlanta. As the video shows, Borat was questioned by Lamb, who asked him for his identification during the interaction. Sacha Baron Cohen’s character first took out an “honor certificate” that he claimed proved his daughter was “one of my properties.”
Terry Nolan – Big Momma’s House
By the time the 21st Century rolled around, Martin Lawrence was a massive star and his summer 2000 hit comedy Big Momma’s House only made a stronger case for the box office draw. Seriously, the movie remains one of the funniest of Lawrence’s career and that era in general, 20 years later. In addition to Lawrence, the movie also featured a star-in-the-making with Terrence Howard, Paul Giamatti, Nia Long, and none other than Anthony Anderson.
Appearing as Terry Nolan, the dim-witted security guard who always finds himself at the wrong place at the wrong time, Anthony Anderson pretty much steals every scene he’s in, but those appearances are few and far between. Anderson wasn’t quite the movie star he would become when he appeared in Big Momma’s House, which is probably why he’s not as remembered here.
An Actual Mountain In Space
The first Disneyland roller coaster was the Matterhorn, built to resemble the actual mountain found in the Alps. So, since then, the major Disney attractions of significant size, mostly roller coasters, all were given the name “mountain.” Some of them, like Thunder Mountain Railroad, make some sense, as there is an actual, albeit scaled-down, mountain in the attraction. But what exactly is a Space Mountain anyway? Clearly the only reason it has that name is that it’s a large roller coaster. The coaster itself is the “mountain.”
Pat Heywood and Jamil McGinnis have made four short films together, including Gramercy, and the two have developed a friendship in addition to their positive working relationship. I spoke with the two of them about the making of Gramercy, and they explained how the idea and topic came to them. McGinnis explained:
The 158-piece lingerie collection—which Zara is calling The Female Gaze—fuses classic pieces (bras, underwear, camisoles, silk robes) with loungewear (pajamas, scarves, socks, bodysuits) and fabrics range from silk, alpaca, wool, cashmere, and cotton.
With the pandemic as an obvious impetus (it’s truly end of an era for many women’s relationships with their underwire bras), Zara delivers with its focus on comfort—everything is designed to be loose-fitting and elevated, with a soft color palette that includes cream, silver, black, and blush. The price range is somewhat reasonable, with starting prices of $17.90 though the silk items aren’t exactly impulse buys, with underwear coming in at $36 and topping out at $199 for a pajama set. But hey, if ever there was a time to treat yourself to small luxuries if you can swing it, it’s now.
What’s a little disappointing is that Zara missed the mark on true size-diversity—most pieces fall within the brand’s standard small, medium, and large range. Surprising, given the overwhelming success of Savage x Fenty, ThirdLove, and other modern lingerie brands that have embraced inclusivity in a way that feels organic and business-savvy: Lingerie is set to become a $59 billion market globally by 2024, up from $38 billion in 2017, according to Zion Market Research. Not to mention, women are increasingly aware of and invested in the core values of brands they like, and are shopping accordingly. This would have been the perfect moment and an ideal category for Zara—a store we all love to shop—to expand its sizing.
Still, it’s hard to argue with the fact that the pieces do seem easy to wear and versatile, so if you’re into what Zara is offering—and it seems plenty of shoppers are since most pieces are already sold out—shop some of our favorite items above and below, then head over to the brand’s site to see more.
It was claustrophobic. [laughs] We didn’t do any of it on a soundstage. Everything that we shot on the boat was on that teeny little boat, and you couldn’t take out a wall to fit in the camera. Like, everyone that was in the scene needed to fit in there. And then all of the equipment needed to fit in there. And our DP, Raquel Nuñez, is just such a superhero. And I feel like she has shapeshifting abilities because she would cram herself into corners to try to get a certain shot and she would climb up on top of things and hang over things. And that was definitely helpful for us as actors, to actually be in that tiny space. And to be honest, to feel like we were on a boat that could sink at any minute because that thing was so beat up. So that was very helpful, and I’m glad that it came across as feeling claustrophobic. We also did a lot of the shots kind of in the middle of the night out in the San Francisco Bay area. So getting to actually shoot at night, getting to feel that claustrophobic space? It was very helpful in actually conveying that.
Just a few days ago, director Kevin Smith’s second movie, Mallrats, celebrated its 25th anniversary. With the filmmaker having recently returned to his View Askewniverse through Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, he’s gearing up to jump back into this shared continuity through Mallrats 2, which was initially envisioned as a movie, then shifted to a TV series, and is now back to being a movie.
While speaking with Seth Meyers, the late night talk show host shared with Adam Sandler his attempts to watch Uncut Gems with his parents, who are massive fans of “The Sandman.” Due to the movie being the anxiety-induced ride that it is, they turned the movie off. Here’s what Sandler said in response:
For those that don’t recall, the prosthetic in discussion here is part of the costume that Lea Thompson wears as the alternate 1985 version of Lorraine, a.k.a. Lorraine Baines Tannen. In the horrible timeline created when 1955 Biff gets a sports almanac from his future self, Lorraine winds up marrying him and lives like a prisoner in a hotel/casino penthouse that her husband owns. When Marty shows up, it winds up causing a major fight, during which Lorraine reveals that Biff basically forced her to get breast implants. She yells in anger that her rotten spouse can “keep them,” which is funny to think about now knowing that Lea Thompson was actually the one who kept them. This delightful moment is captured in the screenshot below:
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds posted an Instagram about voting on Thursday, October 22. But it’s not their message that has the internet talking; it’s Lively’s choice of footwear—or should I say lack thereof.
“It was Ryan’s first time [voting],” Lively captioned the below Instagram, trolling her hubby like she always does. “He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friend. #voteearly.”
In the pic Lively is wearing a grey plaid coat, pink pants, and what appears to be a pair of high heels. But they’re not actual shoes. Nope! It appears Lively used her iPhone to literally draw a pair of shoes on her bare feet. The reason for this is unknown.
But Reynolds’s Instagram, which includes Lively’s bare feet sans drawn-on shoes, proves it:
Lively is seemingly in on her own joke. Is it a joke? I don’t know what’s going on. “@LouboutinWorld, are you hiring? Barefoot iPhone doodler with vast experience avail,” she wrote on Instagram Stories, copping to her quirky (?) stunt. This time she drew herself a pair of boots.
“I don’t see the issue,” she wrote on another IG Story.
Again, I have to ask: Why did she do this? Quarantine boredom? To troll the entire internet? Regardless, it’s harmless and…funny? I guess? Anyway, people have thoughts.
“Someone please tell me I’m not crazy and that Blake Lively actually photoshopped a pair of heels on her feet for her photo,” one person wrote. Another added, “Being wildly rich and famous surely breaks your brain in strange ways, and ‘drawing on heels instead of putting on shoes’ is one of them, apparently! i love it!!!” A media outlet quipped, “We too are @blakelively when we just can’t find the perfect shoes.” Sure?!
You do you, Blake Lively. You draw on those shoes. 2020 is a wild year.
