Do you ever just sit around thinking about how Baz Luhrmann's interpretation of "The Great Gatsby" and "Mean Girls" are basically the same movie? Neither did we.
Until we totally did.
It's one of those can't-unsee-once-you-see situations, but it's cool. There's just no arguing with it — the man wears a pink suit, for crying out loud.
Here are 10 memes that will forever unite Tina Fey's classic high school comedy (and Lindsay Lohan's finest work, sigh) and F. Scott Fitzgerald's great American novel in your mind.
The connection between those sassy "Mean Girls" and the downtrodden of "Les Miserables" is a lot stronger than Amanda Seyfried's long, blonde locks. Oh yes. Now that Tina Fey's trying to re-work the zingers of her old high school clique comedy into song lyrics (go Tina, go!), the comparisons are becoming oh-so-clear.
We smell a crossover. Get More »
Tina Fey sure knows how to please a
bunch of us jumpy clapping she-geeks crowd.
After co-owning the stage at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, the "30 Rock" star got to relax a bit and actually enjoy being a nominee (and eventual winner) for Best Actress in a Comedy Series at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday evening.
Jessica Chastain — you go, grrrl!
The Oscar-nominated star of "Zero Dark Thirty" trades her trademark red mane for a short jet-black 'do (complete with accompanying tattoos) for her goth punk turn in "Mama," the Guillermo del Toro-produced frightfest about a rather, shall we say, over-protective ghost.
Jessica's new look has us wanting to start a band that only covers Sex Pistols songs ... and gather some pics of other hot punk rock chicks in flicks. Fight the power and get clickin' through our gallery.

Remember old episodes of "Scooby Doo," where they'd rip off a monster mask to reveal a villain — only to rip off another mask and reveal the real culprit underneath? It defies logic — first of all, where did they find such lifelike masks of Old Mr. Jenkins, the carnival owner?
Logistic issues aside, those were our favorite episodes. There's an inherent charm of people dressed as people dressed as other people that's still pretty funny to us as adults. Jim Carrey? Great. Jim Carrey in "Yes Man?" Terrific.
Jim Carrey dressed as his "Yes Man" character who's dressed as Harry Potter? Phenomenal.
So let's take a look at some more actors — including the stars of this weekend's "Fun Size" — dressed as characters dressed in their costume finery. Happy Halloween!
"The Dark Knight Rises" is one of the most anticipated movies of this summer, not just because it's the epic conclusion to Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" franchise, but also because Anne Hathaway will be playing Catwoman. We're looking forward to seeing Hathaway's take on the beloved character, but we might be even more to excited to see her bring all the sexiness and sass we love about Catwoman to that iconic outfit.
Hathaway is one more in a long line of lovely ladies who have donned catsuits in movies, be it attending a costume party or kicking some serious butt. Not everyone can pull off a skin-tight suit, but these actresses make it look easy.
Flip through this gallery of fierce-looking females, and you're going to wish you had nine lives just so you could look at it over and over again. Meow!

Everyone loves a bad boy. The snarling mustache twirlers get all of the fame and fortune -- the No. 1 spot on movie-geek lists, the Halloween costumes, the cool quotes -- and none of them have to worry about being called a witch.
But here at NextMovie, we're all about the bad girls. We love a lady who isn't afraid to embrace her nasty side in order to get what she wants.
In honor of "Savages" and Salma Hayek's role as a brutal drug cartel leader, we've gathered up the coolest and cruelest women to grace the silver screen. We're a little worried about ranking them, because if there's one thing we know about these vicious villainesses, it's that they don't like competition. But we did. Now, you read. We'll run.

What would happen if The Plastics invaded Panem?
The various production photos and trailer screencaps from "The Hunger Games" have inspired some rather amusing parody captions throughout the 'net, but our favorite playful poke at the nation's still-biggest movie might be this blog that mashes up the dangerous future world of Katniss Everdeen with the equally dangerous halls of North Shore High School in "Mean Girls."

"It's hard because I'm such a movie buff, but 'Mean Girls' is so quotable and so relatable to everything I would do in high school. I can expect text messages from my girlfriends, like, 'Oh my God, I love your bracelet. Where did you get it?' and 'None for Gretchen Wieners. Bye.' I'll see those at least once a day in my inbox. I'm sure we could reenact the whole movie."
Jenn Sterger can currently be seen every Friday night on the Fuel network's "Hometown Throwdown" and in the horror movie "The Tenant."
Everyone has their own personal favorite genre, but comedy is arguably the most universal. Have you ever met someone who's said, "I don't like to laugh"? Neither have we.
The past decade has seen filmmakers like Adam McKay and Judd Apatow rise from obscurity onto the A-list, while actors like Seth Rogen and Zach Galifianakis have gone from esoteric television shows to big-budget movies.
But enough talk. Read. Argue. Yell at us. You can debate the order of these films all you want, but you can't deny the humor of any of them. Get More »
