How much of an underrated presence has Steve Buscemi been in all of our lives?
Over the span of 25 years, he's gone from "King of the That Guys" (current co-Kings: Bruce McGill and James Cromwell) to "Oh, right — that's an actor named Steve Buscemi" to "Steve Buscemi" to "Golden Globe-Winning Steve Buscemi" to, finally, "Champion of Our Hearts Steve Buscemi." Get More »
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 »
At this year's Cannes Film Festival, a steady stream of chatter swirled around "The Paperboy" due to a scene in which Nicole Kidman pees on Zac Efron's face.
"Dear Lord, why?" you might ask. Well, aside from the fact that an Oscar winner urinating on your head grants you thespian superpowers and cures migraines, the starlet's saintly spray also cured the searing pain of a jellyfish sting.
We're sure you're all now bursting to witness this degrading spectacle, and, thankfully, "The Paperboy" opens in select theaters this Friday. So while waiting to go — and you gotta go — let's revisit some timeless tinkles from tinseltown. Because while these golden moments might be listed as our Top 9, but they're all #1 in our book.

Let's face it, most of us have been, as David Lee Roth once so eloquently put it, "Hot For Teacher." And while we adore the earnest and inspirational wisdom of teachers in movies like "Dead Poets Society," "Stand and Deliver" and "Mr. Holland's Opus," that's not what we're talking about here.
If our favorite educators had looked like these 12 big-screen teachers ranked in the gallery below, we would have been happy flunking year after year just to keep watching them draw on the chalkboard.

Many of us go to the movies to escape our daily grinds by putting ourselves in the shoes of a stranger. And if that stranger happens to be loaded? Even better! Just call it wishful thinking.
In honor of "one percenter" Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. Batman), who is set to show off his latest expensive bat toys in the highly anticipated final entry to Christopher Nolan's trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," we've weeded through the most memorable tycoons to grace the silver screen to bring you our picks for the top nine "one percenters" ever committed to celluloid.

From the looks of it, the party at the center of "Project X" is an epic teen throwdown to rival the best of them. No wonder, since it's produced by "The Hangover" director Todd Phillips.
To mark this Friday's release of the sure-to-be raucous flick, we've weeded through some of our favorite party films of all time to pick the 13 best movie parties we wish we'd attended. From "Animal House"s' infamous toga party to Will Ferrell streaking at a Snoop Dogg concert in "Old School," one thing's for certain: These parties rocked.

They say the U.S. doesn't make things anymore -- that we've lost our way and are no longer No. 1.
Well, "they" are wrong. No country on Earth is capable of producing the quantity, quality and quantity of idiots that our fair land churns out with alarming regularity.
Affable favorite Paul Rudd continues the proud tradition of representing our country's most common commodity in "Our Idiot Brother," nwe on DVD and Blu-ray this week. But can he be stupid enough to join the ranks of elite morons, or does he still have a few more brain cells to kill? Let's review his imbecilic competition. Get More »
