FLICK: It's about time the Wachowski brothers gave us something good. Three years after V for Vendetta, they unleash Speed Racer (out May 9), the cinematic version of the Tatsuo Yoshida-drawn anime turned American cartoon classic. Dreamy Emile Hirsch (above) resurfaces after the success of Into The Wild to portray Speed, while Christina Ricci sports a fabulous, future-friendly bob as his supportive girlfriend, Trixie. Loyal to his family, Speed turns down the maniacal Royalton Industries owner's offer to race for his team and then struggles through sabotage to cross the finish line first. Bonus: Matthew Fox and Scott Porter make eye-pleasing appearances too. See the trailer here.
LAUGHS: Kathy Griffin is downright unstoppable. She just nabbed a GLAAD award for Outstanding Reality Program, will soon grace our TV screens again with the premiere of the fourth season of Bravo's Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, and she's still touring! This season she's hellbent on winning a Grammy because an Emmy just isn't enough. Perhaps she'll perfect her routine for a comedy album as she tours America now, delighting with her signature storytelling, dish, and foul language. Get tickets for her double spots in San Diego and Reno, May 9 and 10 respectively, here.
STAGE: Deborah Gibson first graced our malls and radios in 1987 with "Only In My Dreams" and "Shake Your Love," hits she's sure to perform in her three-week stay at Harrah's in Atlantic City, May 4-24. With over a half-dozen studio albums under her belt, the mature and talented Ms. Gibson is bound to electrify youth and seniors alike on the New Jersey coast. Get your tickets here.
SCREEN: A Shot at Love 2 With Tila Tequila is a total bisexual train wreck -- and we can't get enough. Simply put, it's 15 lesbians and 15 straight guys battling for Tila's affection. So where does that leave the gays? Well, there's certainly a fair share of hot straight boy skin, and, frankly, that's worth watching on its own. But when the lesbians start dishing out anti-man sass and exhibiting penile discomfort, that's when the show reaches its greatest laughable heights. As if one season weren't enough, we get a second helping as Tila (above) strives to find love again. This time for real, we're sure. Watch full episodes, roundups, and previews here.
