Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this holiday weekend!

Here at The Frisky, we love going to the movies. We also love free stuff. We KNOW we’re not alone here, so we’re giving away 50 pairs of movie tickets to our loyal fans! Yes, that’s 100 free tickets. BOOM!
The first 50 people to sign up for a set of tickets will see “Obvious Child,” a comedy starring Jenny Slate as an aspiring comedian whose everyday life as a twenty-something provides ample material for her act. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna gets dumped, loses her job and finds herself pregnant just before Valentine’s Day, she has to navigate the murky waters of adulthood for the first time. As she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy and a surprising new suitor, Donna discovers that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn’t facing it on her own. It’s allowing herself to accept the love and support of others, while still finding humor in every situation.
Want in? Here’s how to snag your tix… Keep reading »
We’ve got 15 months to go until “Magic Mike XXL” hits theaters, but the movie’s Big Dick Richie has something to whet your appetite in the meantime. Joe Manganiello — who plays the well-endowed Richie in “Magic Mike” — directed “La Bare,” a documentary about the world’s most popular male strip club, La Bare Dallas, which hits theaters on June 27. “Men wanted to see naked women, women want a show,” one person notes in the Red Band trailer above, and the film takes a look behind the curtain (and beneath the banana hammock) at just how that show comes — oh whatever, blah blah blah, SHOW ME SOME ASS.
New Ryan Gosling photos? NEW RYAN GOSLING PHOTOS. So they’re not very interesting. Who cares! My man has emerged from Eva Mendes’s dungeon! No, that is not a vag reference, I literally think he has been kept prisoner for the last few months. Please tell me he was headed to New York City so that Lucca and I can begin Gosling Watch 2014.

Speaking of watching Gosling, the actor’s directorial debut, “Lost River” (previously: “How To Catch A Monster”), premieres at Cannes this week, and the first trailer was just posted online. Check it out after the jump! Keep reading »
Matthew McConaughey sure is on a roll, isn’t he? The actor just won the Oscar for “Dallas Buyers Club” and is practically guaranteed an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his role on “True Detective,” not to mention blew critics away in ”Mud,” “Magic Mike,” and “Killer Joe” — so what’s next? Oh, just Christopher Nolan’s first post-Batman film, “Interstellar,” the trailer for which just dropped today. Dudes, I got chills. Astronaut Rust Cohle is going to save the Earth with science! [MTV]

“Magic Mike XXL” – yes, we choose to embrace this pun – will officially be arriving in theaters on July 3, 2015, leaving us over a year to fantasize about it. Here’s how to spend the 15 long months between now and the next time we see Channing Tatum’s … adapted screenplay. Keep reading »
The Cannes Film Festival begins today in France. Movie stars along the French Riviera sounds lovely, of course. But Cannes, and every other film festival, is always a reminder of women director’s underrepresentation in the movie business. In the past decade at Cannes, there have been several years when ZERO female directors have had a feature film screened — and that’s in pools of, like, 22 competing films. Keep reading »
Truth be told, the last 10 months of my life have been pretty difficult. I’m talking sucky… Real craptastic…. A fucking turd parade. In nearly every area of my life—personal or professional—nothing’s been going my way. Sure, I have my health and all my basic needs are accommodated blah blah blah, but I’m not ashamed to say I’ve been the hostess of many-a pity party thrown in my honor.
So when I curl up on the couch, sporting the pajamas I’ve been wearing non-stop for the past three days and momentarily pausing to think how long it’s been since I’ve taken a shower or talk to a real human being, I like to put something on the television that’s going to be comforting. Soothing, even. Something that’ll make me feel just a centimeter better about my stupid, no-good, very bad life—and that, my friends, is usually a documentary about unsolved murders, substance abuse, undiscovered pedophilia and/or other light-hearted areas of interest.

The full trailer for Melissa McCarthy’s upcoming film ”Tammy” has arrived and, surprise, surprise, I was sold within just a few seconds of watching the hilarious comedienne strut her Croc-clad feet to the tune of Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise.” Donning a fast food bag on her head, the titular character bossily robs a fast food joint and then has to deal with the fallout of this sloppily performed heist, going on the run with her drunk grandma. (The grandma is actually played by Susan Sarandon, and I can’t help but hope her performance is an octogenarian take on her character in “Thelma & Louise.”) “Tammy” is co-produced and co-written by McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone, who also directed, and opens on July 4. Consider it your patriotic duty to laugh your ass off. [NYMag.com]
Lupita Nyong’o has it all as Hollywood’s “It” girl, but her film resumé is kind of lacking. Besides playing Patsey in “12 Years A Slave” — for which she won the Oscar – the 31-year-old actress only has two other roles to speak of. She was a flight attendant in the Liam Neeson thriller, “Non Stop,” and will voice a wolf mother in the upcoming adaptation of “The Jungle Book.”
So, why can’t Hollywood find that stellar leading role for this year’s Best Supporting Actress Academy Award winner? Is it sexism? Is it racism? Or is it because Hollywood’s run by a bunch of idiots? We’re going with a mix of all three, because we can think of at least seven different plum parts that Hollywood could cast Lupita Nyong’o in right now. Keep reading »
