David Beckham Puts On Disguise, Peddles Cologne At Target


Man, I love it when Ellen DeGeneres plays prank Cyrano de Bergerac and has celebrities do something outrageous to unsuspecting bystanders while she counsels them on what to say via earpiece. In this clip, David Beckham heads to Target undercover to peddle his new cologne. She has him spray it on his leg so a woman can smell it and then has him yell “Howdy partner!” as loud as possible. But the best part is how he keeps slightly misunderstanding her. “If you stink, come and buy cologne” is a great jingle, though. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Christina Ricci Says “Pan Am” Isn’t A “Mad Men” Knockoff

“It’s a great comparison to get; ‘Mad Men‘ is a great show and I’m a huge fan. But that does focus more on a man’s experience of that time period and this is much more about these women. These were really women who were taking control of their lives and living in a very feminist kind of way. They weren’t the average women.”

Christina Ricci in Manhattan magazine about her new show, “Pan Am” and the comparisons it is getting to the critics’ favorite, “Mad Men.” “Pan Am” is just one of two ’60s retro-inspired TV shows debuting this season: the other is “The Playboy Club.” I, for one, am a little skeptical about the influx of “Mad Men” knockoff shows, mostly because “Mad Men” is brilliantly incisive while “The Playboy Club” really looks like it’s glossing over some sexist awfulness and portraying it as really kitschy and fun. But “Pan Am” has always looked like the superior of the two programs and the adventures of four female flight attendants sounds fascinating. And who doesn’t love the idea of Christina Ricci on TV?

The Turducken of Cookies: The ChocoOreoChip Cookie

It’s my birthday this week (you can send all b-day wishes care of The Frisky offices, thanks!) and my mom made me cookies. These are her special chocolate chip Oreo cookies, which are homemade chocolate chip cookies with Oreo cookies baked inside. Blam! I just blew your mind, didn’t I? This is to cookies what the turducken is to novelty Thanksgiving meats. I believe she invented this cookie, but if she didn’t, I don’t want to know. What I do want know is have you ever created a totally off-the-wall baking or cooking innovation? Keep reading »

Movie Shot On iPhone, Snuck Out Of Iran In A Cake, Will Screen In The US

I am kind of fascinated by the movie “This Is Not A Film,” which screened at the Toronto Film Festival and has now been picked up for release in the US. The film is by Iranian director Jafar Panahi, who has been sentenced to six years in jail for allegedly making “propaganda against the Islamic Republic” and banned from filmmaking for 20 years. And so he made “This Is Not A Film” while under house arrest. It’s a 75-minute look at a day in his life as he tried to appeal his verdict. It was shot on an iPhone by a friend and, for its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the movie had to be smuggled out of the country in a cake. Panahi has serious commitment to his craft and I think it’s pretty amazing that audiences will get to see this work. I only hope it doesn’t incur him graver punishment.

“Martha Marcy May Marlene”: Crazy Title, Crazy-Looking Movie


I love a trippy psychological thriller full of raw talent even more than I like mint chip ice cream on a hot September day, and that’s saying a lot. And in this regard, the upcoming film “Martha Marcy May Marlene” looks right up my alley. I’m ready to gobble it down.

The film stars Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister to the Olsen twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, and she looks to be pretty mesmerizing is this role. Olsen plays Martha, and the film follows Martha’s schizophrenic narrative between past and present — past being the time she recently spent living on a farm in an abusive cult and present immediately following her escape from the brutal cult, living with her sister and brother-in-law, who know nothing of her time with the cult, and trying to reconnect in normalcy and come to terms with the terrifying things that happened to her on the farm.
