Quotable: Jason Segel’s Mom Defends His Full-Frontal Nudity As “Essential”

“In true motherly fashion, [my mom] sent out a mass e-mail to my family saying, ‘I just want you all to know that in Jason’s upcoming film, he has chosen to do full frontal nudity, but please note, it is not gratuitous and is essential to the plot.’”

– Jason Segel on how his mother handled his infamous nude scene in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” Aww, moms — so supportive. [USA Today] Keep reading »

Why Are Penises Always Funny In Movies?

After seeing “Bruno,” one of my male friends went on a 5-minute rant about how penises in movies are always played for laughs. In his opinion, the nudity law of cinema is that when a woman’s naked, it’s completely serious or titillating, but when a peen pops up on screen, it’s meant to be hilarious. He repeatedly asked the question—why? Keep reading »

The Best Cries Of 2008

2008 was a year filled with ups and downs. We laughed, we cried, and we captured it all on camera! While 2009 promises plenty of tears — thanks to Brody Jenner’s upcoming show “Bromance,”, we must honor the whimper that was the past 12 months. So, to commemorate those who weren’t afraid to just let it all out, here are the Best Cries Of 2008:

10. Kenley Was Finally Humbled On “Project Runway”

Project Runway’s most hatable hack, Kenley, wouldn’t even tone it down when Tim Gunn gave her a talking to, but Diane von Furstenberg was finally able to break her! Just the mere sight of the fashion icon turned Kenley into mush. Damn, wrap dresses really do amazing things for women! Keep reading »

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of September 30th 2008

MUSIC

  • Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson
    I don’t want to hate on American Apparel, because I love it, but seriously, Oscar-winning Jennifer Hudson needs to fire her stylist. On the cover of her first solo record, she’s in a basic dress that hipsters have been humping in for years — boring! She’s too fabulous for that fashion faux pas! Maybe she’s just surrounding herself with the wrong kind of people, like her fiancé, Punk, from VH1’s “I Love New York 2.” Anyway, my apologies for putting the look over the sound, but the music isn’t much to write about. It’s just Top 40-style R&B. Still, she’s got a great voice and I’m sure you’ll be hearing “Spotlight” while you’re shopping at your drug store in the near future.

Who IS Russell Brand, Anyway?

Russell Brand quotes Oscar Wilde as easily as he rocks his ridiculously teased hair. He’s sexy, he’s suave, but, above all, he’s smart and he isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Despite getting flack for openly teasing the Jonas Brothers about their chastity rings and the “retarded cowboy President” Bush at the VMA’s last night, I thought [Me too! -- Editor] Brand stole the show with his off-handed hilarious comments — of course an accent makes everything sound better. Sure, the hole in the ozone is probably caused by the amount of hairspray he uses on his hair-do, but damn the boy is fine and funny! From guyliner to his groovy anti-establishment attitude, who is this one man British invasion named Russell Brand?

Feature: Pathetic Male Movie Leads, Get Lost!

Picture for a moment, if you will, the opening sequence of a film. A romantic comedy. Close, on the female lead, she stands in her apartment a puzzled look on her face – darn it! She wants love! Dating is hilarious! Sex is hilarious! People chase other people through airports and make embarrassing speeches at corporate functions all in the name of L-O-V-E. This female lead is unemployed. She is a slacker. She’s uncertain what she wants to do with her life, but she is certain that she’s ten to fifteen pounds overweight. She engages in recreational drug use, sometimes even drinking bong water. She fears change and cries at the drop of a hat. But boy is she lovable!

Frisky Chatter: Dish From The Frisky Forums

Hello pretty people! We hereby order you to take five minutes out of your precious time and to go over to the Frisky forums for three extremely important reasons:

  • We’re desperate from your thoughts on summer shorts. We’re going to be doing a slideshow based on your recommendations, so don’t leave us hanging. We cry very easily.
  • Now that you have hopefully had a chance to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall, we’re super curious if you think that showing peen in the movies is degrading to men. I think you know where we stand, but we still would love for you to weigh in.
  • Elle wants to know whether you’d date a guy who’d been around the block with 100 women. FYI, the guy is not Johnny Depp in Don Juan DeMarco.
  • Enjoy the weekend, lovelies! Keep reading »

    The Hard & Soul Of Forgetting Sarah Marshall

    Yesterday we posted a review of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, a movie which has an R-rating despite the fact that there’s a whole lotta peen to be seen. Apparently, the film was able to avoid an NC-17 rating because the ratings board told the filmmakers that star Jason Segal’s penis would have to remain flaccid during the scene in which it’s exposed — an erect penis would have garnered an NC-17 rating. We’re not quite sure why a shriveled penis is less “offensive” than a hard one. Is it because a hard penis implies sexual arousal and THAT is what is inappropriate for children under 17? Segal says that in order to comply with the board’s standards, while still not embarrassing himself on a celluloid with a cold and shriveled package, he went for just slightly engorged. We asked our friend Jon how he would do such a thing, and Jon said that he probably got himself aroused and then let his boner subside a bit before filming began, getting that “meaty” effect. We swear, we have not learned so much about penises in our entire life as we have in the last two days. Anyway, what do you think about how this movie is rated? Do you think it’s strange that the film ratings board makes such a, um, stiff distinction between the two? Keep reading »

    We See Chick Flicks: Forgetting Sarah Marshall

    Forgetting Sarah Marshall
    Starring Jason Segel, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell
    Okay, ladies this is a very special addition of “We See Chick Flicks”. Both because I loved, loved, loved this movie and for the PENIS factor. Yup, you’ve probably heard about it, and maybe some of you have already seen it, but this movie is very, how shall I put it, frontally loaded. And we’re not talking a little peek, we’re talking the WHOLE pecker (and might we add, the 6-foot-something actor shows his…height). We’re talking full view, slightly hard schlong. Most movies who deign to show the whole male form, wimp out with a little glimpse of the turtle head, but Jason worked hard (pun intended) to show us his full potential. While getting fully hard would have warranted an X-rating, he got right up to that point, a point which we will refer to as “getting long” [Meaty! -- Editor], and let me tell you, he’s got nothing to be ashamed of. Now. Moving on. Keep reading »

    The Daily Hotness: Jason Segal

    I am so excited to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall, especially since the star, Jason Segal (who also stars on How I Met Your Mother), has an entire scene in full-frontal exposure. He’s hot, in a funny, goofy guy sort of way. Keep reading »
