We recently posed the question of Amy Adams: Hot or Not?, and as the verdict ended up being a rather enthusiastic HOT!, we thought we'd follow-up accordingly with her very own Hot People Looking Hot gallery. Just as, you know, a visual aid and all. Yeah.
Check out our collection of the "Man of Steel" beauty looking you-know-what in movies, in photoshoots and on the red carpet. We can't wait to see her busybodying about again as Lois Lane in the inevitable "Man of Steel 2."
It's probably safe to assume that the most-quoted genre in all of cinema is probably comedy. A good comedy — and there have been many over the years — can come up with at least five or or six above-average zingers, lines that are sure to be remembered, cherished and repeated to the point where it stops being funny ... and then comes around to being even funnier.
Here are some of the funniest quotes from 50 of our favorite comedies — in meme form, for your re-posting convenience. Share the laughter, why don'tcha?
1. 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' (2005)
If you haven't already heard someone suggest, "Let's go to Paris'. I wanna rob," then, sorry, we don't know where you've been for the past few months. The Sofia Coppola-directed film "The Bling Ring" opens nationally this weekend, and the film's infinitely quotable, meme-ready lines are like catnip to the selfie-snapping, celebrity-obsessed zeitgeist. The film follows the titular ring, a teenage gang that allegedly walked casually into celebrities' homes — armed with TMZ-gleaned knowledge that the stars are out of town — and back out with armfuls of designer goods, jewelry and more. The real-life burglars even made off with Orlando Bloom's rug.
Katie Chang and Israel Broussard, both 18, may play the two alleged masterminds of the crew in "Bling Ring," snotty yet fashionable young people based on Rachel Lee and Nick Prugo, but in a chat with NextMovie in Manhattan the morning of the film's New York premiere, the duo couldn't have seemed farther from their characters. Both newcomers to the screen, the two goofed around, riffing on whether they felt bad for the real-life Bling Ring kids, what it was like to act alongside Hermione herself and, of course, tips on how to take the perfect selfie.

Billy Crystal has hosted nine Academy Awards ceremonies and starred in box office hits like "When Harry Met Sally," "City Slickers" and "Analyze This," but even that resume wasn't enough to earn the 65-year-old respect from his grandchildren.
In a recent interview at the Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, Calif. to promote the upcoming "Monsters University," Crystal told a group of reporters what cool customers his four grandchildren are. They didn't know that their grandpa had any kind of special status until a paparazzo was following the actor and kids around The Grove, an upscale outdoor mall in L.A., taking pictures, prompting the kids to ask what the fuss was about.

Generally, screenwriting is reserved for a thankless group of nerds who spend most of their waking hours making "Star Wars" references and lamenting their low position on the Hollywood totem pole.
But once in a while, the ladies and gentlemen behind the scripts end up becoming household name ... or move on from other successful careers to take a stab at screenwriting. And whether it's to make a buck, help out a buddy or take on a new challenge, these scribes sometimes end up scoring some pretty unexpected gigs. Get More »
In 2013, you don't have to be the "Man of Steel." If you're even a moderately noteworthy superhero, you're probably going to get your own movie. If that movie does well — and it probably will, since it's a superhero movie and the world loves superheroes — you're going to get a sequel, maybe even two, and those will probably do well, too. In short, being a superhero is, generally, a good thing.
That's why it's so surprising that the following nine superheroes don't already have movie deals, just by virtue of dawning their respective costumes. I'm sorry, I thought this was 'Merica! Someone get these people to a movie studio, stat!
9. Banana Man
With the glasses, you know already that Banana Man has superhuman vision abilities, so that's an easy check mark. You better believe those are glasses for near-sighted people. But it doesn't stop there: Banana Man dishes out empty banana peels like they're going out of style right at his enemies. You think that s**t is just in Mario Kart? Please. Finally, if there is a Banana Man movie made, I'm going to insist that this gentleman is cast as the title character. He clearly has the charisma to carry the role for as many movies as the studio allows. This may as well be Robert Downey III, who hangs at graveyards sometimes because why not.
Pixar is about once again show other animation studios how it's done with this weekend's release of "Monsters University," which chronicles the college years of Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sullivan (John Goodman) as they hone their scary skills in the haunted halls of academia. Get More »
Every movie has a rumor mill, but when your main character is Superman, it naturally becomes a super rumor mill. As anyone who has been following Zack Snyder's film over the past couple of years knows, rarely has there been a film with so many completely random, crazy and unsubstantiated rumors as "Man of Steel."
Which, of course, just made us even more curious to see the movie, if only to find out: Would all of those rumors turn out to be true? Would any of them turn out to be true? Get More »
WARNING: SPOILERS GALORE.
By not simply rolling to "The End," "They all lived happily ever after," etc. after Frodo made a three-pointer chucking The One Ring into Mount Doom, Peter Jackson set a pretty bad precedent in "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King." Every time it seemed like all was well and we were fading to credits, another five-minute scene would roll in. Toss in a few Oscars and you've got a bunch of blockbuster directors wanting to add 20 endings to their genre films, too. Get More »
This week: Bryan Singer adapts the British fairy tale of "Jack and the Beanstalk" into the underappreciated action-adventure "Jack the Giant Slayer," starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor.
Also new this week is the coming-of-age comedy "21 & Over," the psychosexual drama "Stoker" with Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, the quirky morality play "The Brass Teapot" with Juno Temple and the celebrity-riddled anthology film "Movie 43" starring, well, half of Hollywood. Get More »
