Strippers In Pop Culture

After a New York nightclub tried to justify its dancers getting the same “artistic” tax exemptions as ballerinas, New York’s highest court ruled this week that strip clubs will have to pay their state sales taxes (guess the lawmakers don’t see the artistry in stripping). This means the club’s cover charge and lap dances will be taxed. While New York isn’t giving a break to the pole-twirling ladies, Hollywood just can’t get enough of them! Olivia Wilde plays a sharp-tongued stripper who tries her hand at butter carving in the film “Butter,” Vanessa Hudgens will slip into lucite heels for her role as a stripper who escapes a serial killer in next month’s thriller “The Frozen Ground,” and Salma Hayek plays an exotic dancer for the third time in the recent French film “Americano.” Popular culture has a history of fascination with strippers, from tell-all books to R&B songs. So let’s take a look back at some of the most notable stripper moments in pop culture! Read more…

Arrested Development Documentary

I’m not even sure “cult hit” is the right way to describe “Arrested Development,” but that is neither here nor there. Obsessed fans, of which there are many, will be delighted to know there’s going to be “Arrested Development” documentary and the trailer is finally out. It looks to be as much about the characters on the show as it is about the fans. This will be unique, as fan docs go: it was filed after the show got canceled, but before the forthcoming “revival season” of the show airs on Netflix. It’s a self-funded project and you can keep track of how it’s going on their website.  Insert-an-”Arrested Development”-joke here, nerds. [YouTube via BuzzFeed]

The Top 5 Funny Female Screenwriters To Watch

On May 13, 2011, the cinematic landscape was forever changed by that cute little movie about friends, weddings and bowel incontinence. Other than a couple “Saturday Night Live” cast members and the lead guy from “Mad Men,” that cute little movie starred a bunch of relatively unknown—and, up until that time, unappreciated—actors and actresses. Yet, at the end of the day, that cute little movie went on to make over $288 billion million at the box office and finally prove to film studios executives it was okay for women to be depicted as smart, funny, beautiful and a little gross. Call it the “Bridesmaids” Effect.

No matter how you slice it, movie theaters haven’t been the same since Melissa McCarthy pooped in a sink. (And I mean that as the highest compliment.) So, without further adieu, allow me to introduce you to the next crop of illegally talented female screenwriters who are likely to leave you in stitches and (possibly) tears.

What We Missed: The Frisky Staffs Talks About Two Great Documentaries & Wonders How Tim Riggins Would Vote

Wait, Tim Riggins Would Vote?

On this week’s episode of “What We Missed,” I totally bite it! So clutzy. Also, Ami and Jessica were both super pumped about a new documentary they saw called “Girl Model,” which takes a disturbing look at how model scouts go to small Eastern European villages and scout girls as young as 12 and 13, sending them to places like Japan to work.

Snappy & Saucy Lines From Hitchcock Heroines

The trailer for “Hitchcock“ has been released, heightening our already Halloween-inspired itch for an Alfred Hitchcock movie marathon. The film stars Anthony Hopkins as the famed director and centers on his relationship with his wife (played by Helen Mirren) in addition to the hurdles he had to overcome when filming “Psycho.” Scarlett Johansson will star as the shower-scene-stealing Janet Leigh, and if there’s one thing Hitchcock is known for, it’s his stunning — and mostly blond — heroines. Feisty ladies in movies like “Vertigo,” “The Birds,” and “To Catch a Thief” may be dealing with some frightful situations, but they never fail to dish out snappy words of wisdom along the way. Take a trip back through some of the director’s retro thrillers with our favorite lines from Hitchcock heroines. Read more…
