Tom Hanks Does 'Big' Chopsticks Scene with Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock might've given Tom Hanks the box office smack-down treatment this weekend — her hit 3D space adventure "Gravity" handily toppled his dramatic pirate takeover pic "Captain Phillips" — but there's no love lost between these "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" stars.

While promoting their respective shippy films on The Jonathan Ross Show this weekend, the pair teamed up to recreate one of Hanks' earliest and most memorable movie scenes ever. No, he didn't spit tobacco into her face whilst screeching about tears and baseball; they did the one where he played "Chopsticks" on an over-sized toy keyboard mat a la "Big." Brace for excessive cuteness.

12 Movie Posters Recreated With Their Original Titles

Remember back when everyone's favorite rom-com was "$3000" starring Richard Gere and hot new star Julia Roberts?

Not every movie starts out being called the movie we've come to know and love. In fact, it's rather common for movies to have "working titles," or titles that just ended up getting changed somewhere between conception and distribution.

(Huh?)

There are those in her lineage who want nothing more than for her to join the dark side upon turning the dreaded age of 16, but the gal's got eyes for a little human boy named Ethan and just wants to play nice, for crying out loud.

Most of her predecessors in cinematic spell-casting, however, were not quite so noble. In fact, a lot of them would just do some downright effed up stuff. Let's review some of the worst. Get More »

10 Movies You Didn't Realize Were Directed by Women

Point Break (1991) 20th Century Fox

When people refer to "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow as a "female director," it seems a little weird for 2013, doesn't it? Do you know any dudes named Kathryn? Does anyone refer to Bruce Willis as a "male actor?" Our good pal and male writer Max Evry touched on this topic more in-depth and without mediocre jokes in a must-read over at our female sister site. Get More »

The 25 Most Essential '80s Comedies

Take Me Home Tonight
Relativity Media

The new comedy "Take Me Home Tonight" celebrates the 1980s and all its excesses, from Mercedes-worship to Frankie Goes To Hollywood telling us all to relax.

The '80s was a time of rampant materialism and mohawks, and the only way people got through it -- like WWII -- was with laughter. 

In honor of Topher Grace's nostalgic comedy, we're celebrating the 25 most-uniquely only-in-the-80's comedies, the ones where the hair was froofy, Eddie Murphy still brought the funny, and the geek inherited the Earth. Get More »
