10 Unforgettable Awkward Movie Moments

That_Awkward_MomentAccording to That Awkward Moment, there’s a point in a relationship when someone busts out “The So.” One party kicks off the conversation with “so …” and then follows it up with a question that will determine the fate of the relationship – where is this going, what are we doing, etc. We can’t help you avoid “The So” or stop you from tripping and falling, pressing send on an e-mail prematurely or getting caught up in a big fat lie, but at least for the next few minutes you can steer clear of any self-created misunderstandings by indulging in this string of big-screen mishaps that rival the awkwardness of “The So.”

Dress Shopping in Bridesmaids

Doing your business all over expensive bridesmaid dresses is devastating no matter what the circumstances, but what really makes the post-Brazilian feast calamity in Bridesmaids even more effective is the build-up. At first the schvitzing, fidgeting and tummy rumbling seems harmless, especially when you’re discussing whether or not to buy a Fritz Bernaise, but the second one bridesmaid can’t hold it in any longer, it’s a chain reaction of mind-blowingly unladylike incidents until poor Lillian is in the middle of the street, pooping her high-end wedding dress. The two-year-old Lady JuJu gown was too poofy anyway.

Movie Tips: What Not to Bring to a New Year’s Party

Project_XNew Year’s Eve prep should be as simple as keeping good company and having enough champagne and food to carry you through the night, but bringing the wrong person or thing could turn the night into one you’d rather forget. Take a cue from these movies and you should be home free as you make your way into 2014.

Project X – Video Camera

Of course you hope that every night out will be the night of your life and there are good reasons to want to remember it, but when that night involves an excessive amount of illegal activity, booze and destruction like in Project X, you’re better off holding onto your memories rather than hard evidence.

The Good, the Bad, and the Bogus: Big Screen Villainesses

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen Julia Roberts back on the big screen – well, in an enjoyable and lucrative type of way. It’s tough to say whether or not Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror will get this iconic A-lister back on track, but based on all the promotional material that’s hit thus far, it sure looks like Roberts had a blast playing the Evil Queen.

Before we find out whether or not Roberts does do this big time baddie justice, let’s check out what she’s up against by taking a look at the good, bad and bogus of big screen villainesses.

Good: The Wicked Witch of the West

Do anything remotely mean to a dog and you’re evil to the max in my book. But not only does The Wizard of Oz’s Wicked Witch of the West threaten poor Toto, she unleashes her wrath upon just about everyone in the film, a band of the most innocent and loveable characters cinema has to offer. Sure, Dorothy had a little something to do with the death of the Wicked Witch’s sister, but a simple “I’m sorry” and “I forgive you” might have been the more appropriate route. The Wicked Witch of the West is evil in the purest form and, in turn, has become one of the most iconic villainesses in film history.

9 Big-Screen Bad Girls You Love To Hate

Who doesn’t love a big-screen bad girl?

On October 7th, Juno Temple hits the big screen as Danielle in Dirty Girl, a sassy teen growing up in Oklahoma and a self-proclaimed whore. Living up to her bad reputation, Danielle convinces another school outcast Clarke (Jeremy Dozier) to steal his father’s car with which the two make a mad dash to Los Angeles so Clarke can escape the ridicule and she can find her father.

Most prefer to steer clear of firebrands like Danielle in real life, but on film they can be some of the most colorful people to spend time with. While Temple’s character isn’t nearly as ruthless and mean-spirited as some of these ladies, Dirty Girl is certainly an excellent excuse to look back at some awesome big-screen female baddies.

8 Great Big-Screen Teachers

After going through years and years of schooling, how many in-class lessons do you actually remember? Now, after years and years of moviegoing, how many big-screen lessons do you remember? While I can barely recall my French vocabulary words, standard high school mathematics or chemistry formulas, I’ve got no problem recounting some of the best of the best from on-screen educators like Harry Potter’s Professor Dumbledore and even School of Rock’s so-called Mr. Ned Schneebly.

In honor of the June 24th release of Bad Teacher, in which Cameron Diaz will likely taint our minds as a “booze-swilling, pot-smoking, hard-swearing” middle school teacher, why not take a look back at some big-screen lessons that actually ring true? (And maybe some that are just downright hilarious, too.)

Lindsay Lohan Will Fail At Porn Because She’s Only Good At Playing Good Girls

Lindsay,

Being an actress can be a tough occupation, particularly for someone who grows up in the spotlight, but that’s no reason to let your career spiral out of control. Whether it’s mommy trouble, daddy trouble, drug trouble, or mental trouble, it’s never too late to do a turnaround and make a comeback. However, playing a porn star is not the kind of comeback I’m talking about. Whether or not the rumors are true, the mounds of gossip you’re drowning in are not going to dry up by putting Inferno on your resume.

You had such a fantastic start. Not only do you headline The Parent Trap (twice) and share screen time with prominent actors like Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson, but you’re excellent in it. You were good, the industry recognized it, and work continued to come your way. You further solidified that bond with Freaky Friday, a grander scale film carried by the natural, genuine chemistry between you and Jamie Lee Curtis. Then it was bye-bye Disney, hello Mean Girls. The Santa’s Little Helper outfit and naughty behavior pushed the boundaries of your good girl image, but, at heart, Cady Heron is just a good girl who loses her way in the high school jungle and your natural talent for playing a fresh-faced young woman makes her an endearing heroine.
