Mitchum Makes Film Debut in The Wedding Ringer with Kevin Hart

About The Wedding Ringer

Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man.  With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need.  What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

In Splash, Darryl Hannah called herself “Madison” after seeing a street sign; Robin Williams chose the moniker “Mrs. Doubtfire” after reading the newspaper headline “Police Doubt Fire Was Accidental;” and Jan Brady invented her fictional boyfriend “George Glass” after spying a glass of water on the table. In the upcoming film The Wedding Ringer (opening in theaters nationwide this Friday, Jan. 16), Kevin Hart’s alter ego is “Bic Mitchum,” a name inspired by a tube of Mitchum deodorant. Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting’s character, Gretchen Palmer, becomes suspicious after discovering Mitchum deodorant in the medicine cabinet next to a pack of razors.

Cate Blanchett & Lily James in Disney's Cinderella

While we all know the story of Cinderella, this movie trailer does exactly what a trailer should do, make you want to see the film! Disney's Cinderella, directed by Kenneth Branagh, appears to be wickedly fabulous.

Cate Blanchett plays the wicked stepmother who also seems to be quite the fashionista. She is stunning in this emerald green gown. I think they're about to go to the Ball. Blanchett's character insists that Cinderella address her as "madam." What a bitch. The wicked stepsisters may be prettier than in the storybook but definitely mean. Or maybe meaner.

And possibly my favorite... talk about great casting...Helena Bonham Carter is Cinderella's fairy godmother. Doesn't she look gorgeous as a blond?! Love!

Lily James stars as Cinderella and her Prince Charming is Game of Thrones' Richard Madden. Cinderella hits theaters on March 13, 2015!

“Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

AND we did. On Better Mornings Atlanta on CBS Atl today. Well, the fashion of it all, not the decadence or debauchery! [Not at 9am.]

Robanne Schulman, Dafina Smith and I talked trends, 1920s style and Gatsby's influence on current fashion with BMA anchor Tracye Hutchins. From designer looks to clothing right out of our closet(s) we contributed to the Gatsby rage that's taking over America.

A Good Day To Die Hard

Director: John Moore

Starring: Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney


Die Hard

franchise is one of the most succsessful action series in cinema history.  

Bruce Willis'

sharp tounged New York police officer, John Mclane, has been killing bad guys since 1988.  

Die Hard (


Die Hard 2

(1990), and

Die Hard With A Vengance

(1995) were all well written, acted, and directed.  The characters were vulnerable and most importantly there was real danger.  

Live Free Or Die Hard

(2007) took the franchise in a new direction.  A

Good Day To Die Hard

has officially  jumped the shark.

After reconnecting with his daughter in the last film, this time around McLane heads off to Russia to spend time with his estranged son played by

Jai Courtney (Jack Reacher).

The action begins with McLane walking in to a violent confrontation between Russian militants and his son.  The opening sequence is a wild car chase through the streets of Moscow with enough property damage to bankrupt any insurance company on the planet.

Die Hard has now been elevated to the ridiculous.  Remember McLane fighting a hover jet with a semi in the last movie?  Bruce Willis does things now that Batman would have trouble pulling off. 

This film is Die Hard in name only.  It could have stared any actor and been given any name and you would not even know the difference.  Director

John Moore (Max Payne)

really missed the mark.  He had the chance to take Die Hard back to its roots, but he chose to make a cartoon.

Jai Courtney is great to look at, and he does a nice job when he is not running from massive explosions.  Willis should be able to play this role in his sleep but at times it looked like he needed a nudge.  I still hold out hope that this series can return to its former glory.  But I would not be shocked if they sent McLane to outer space in the next sequel. If they can't come up with something better than these last two films then it would truly be a good day to let this series die hard.
