Monk I solved tonight's mystery...

MonkI solved tonight's mystery at precisely 10:07 pm, a new record for me. This was based on my previously outlined theory: recognizable guest star — in this case Nicky Katt — equals guilty. But that meant I could sit back and enjoy the show, which was particularly amusing tonight, despite the serious story line about Stottlemeyer's faltering marriage. Stottlemeyer's stint in anger-management class had more laughs than that awful Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler flick. When the teacher gave him a yo-yo because "no one can stay mad when they play with a yo-yo," I thought Stottlemeyer was going to find a way to use it as a deadly weapon. Other favorite gags included Monk going nuts because the loose change in a fountain equaled $10.03, and the homeless guy whose pet read more

Supernatural Don't even get me...

SupernaturalDon't even get me started on the fact that after a six-week hiatus and only two original episodes, WB — nay, the future CW — throws a repeat on us. Trying to sidestep the two-hour juggernaut that is American Idol, perhaps? Who knows. Luckily, this is a really good Supernatural. It's the one where Sam and Dean investigate a haunted asylum in Rockford, Ill. The brotherly dysfunction really kicks in big time with Dean exhibiting some major daddy issues. And Sam makes it his business to alert Dean to the fact that his blind faith in his pops is way not cool, plus he's sick and tired of BossyDean, so back off. Love Dean's alias: Nigel Tufnel. Although, I admit, it took me more than just a little while to realize that Nigel read more

It's commonly known that A ...

Question: It's commonly known that A Fistful of Dollars is a remake of Yojimbo. But I recall reading somewhere that the inspiration for Yojimbo was the Alan Ladd version of The Glass Key. Is this true?


Answer: I've read that Akira Kurosawa cites the Alan Ladd version of Dashiell Hammett's The Glass Key (1942) as one of his inspirations for Yojimbo (1961). But Yojimbo's plot, which revolves around a masterless samurai (Toshiro Mifune) who blows into a lawless town ruled by warring gangs and r read more

Vince proposed to Mandy Moore?!...

Vince proposed to Mandy Moore?! That is a riot. Even funnier is that it's known as the "Walk to Remember Incident." But really, like he would go so stalker-gaga over Andy Roddick's ex… oh, wait. Yeah, that makes sense. We love her. And we love that his still-shattered ego could cost her the Aquagirl gig. Because once that little pop tart gets wind of his plans to get her bounced from James Cameron's comic-book epic, you know she's gonna whip out some of that good-girl-gone-bad ballsiness that made Saved one of the greatest holy-roller comedies ever. Though I have to say I'm a little concerned about Drama's Jack Nicholson routine on the surfer who cut him off. Road rage can be fun, don't get me wrong. But going full-on golf-club kamikaze? Not pretty. Unless it's Ari hosing Josh Weinstein for spilling his real age to the folks at the "Under 40" photo spread. Now that is going to be gorgeous.

About Nicholson: You Don't Know Jack

In Hollywood circles, Jack Nicholson is rumored to be as talented in the boudoir as he is on the set. But the fact of the matter is, his reputation as a playboy could be somewhat exaggerated. That's right — though he has been linked romantically with A-list sweethearts from Anjelica Huston to Lara Flynn Boyle, the dirty dawg might actually be a pussycat! Here's how we know: Back when the About Schmidt leading man was shooting a scene for 1997's As Good as It Gets with blonde bombshell Julie Benz (Steven Spielberg's Taken), his true colors showed and — surprise, surprise — they weren't red-light-district crimson. "He didn't hit on me," Benz tells TV Guide Online, sounding for all the world like a high school girl stood up on prom night. "I was very disappointed. I think he thought I was really young." Still, the three-time Oscar winner made quite an impression on the baby-faced starlet read more
