Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson Get Their "Hustle" On

By Spencer Coile

Rebel Wilson recently took to Instagram to reveal the title of her latest film, The Hustle. Originally named Nasty Women, this female-led remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will star Wilson and Anne Hathaway as two con-women who team up to scam a tech billionaire (Alex Sharp) out of all his money.

Originally slated for an August release, Wilson also declared that The Hustle will be out early on June 29, writing: 

Get ready for this beaut... The CON is ON xx

This Chris Addison directed comedy has so much potential to be a summer hit, but we're still buzzing with questions: Will Hathaway and Wilson have chemistry? Will the material feel fresh? And perhaps most importantly, will this inspire another stage musical adaptation?

Your 8 favorite lines from "Mean Girls" ?

W magazine convinced Lindsay Lohan to recite her* 8 favorite lines from Mean Girls. Picking 8 definitive favorites is impossible so herewith a list of the lines that probably get quoted most often amongst my friends in no particular order. Would love to hear yours in the comments.

• "It's just gonna be a few cool people and you better be one of them biotch."
• "Oh my god, that was one time!"
• "I'm not, like, a regular mom, I'm a cool mom"
• "But you love Ladysmith Black Mambazo!"
• "She doesn't even go here."
• "I'm sorry that people are so jealous of me. But I can't help it that I'm popular"
• "Trang Pak is a grotsky, little byotch."
• "I can't go out, I'm sick *fakecough*"

* Or did they just give her 8 lines... considering she wants to change one of them.

Blueprints: "Juno"

This week Juno celebrated its tenth anniversary, so Jorge takes a look at how Diablo Cody’s iconic dialogue was inflicted with meaning by the cast.

Juno first hit theaters ten years ago as a low budget indie hopeful. It ended its run as a major box office hit and Oscar favorite. It was the movie that put Ellen Page on the map, boosted Jason Reitman’s career, and gave us arguably the definitive Jennifer Garner performance. 

Screenwriter Diablo Cody won the Oscar for her debut screenplay, and she instantly became a recognizable name, the way many directors but few writers are. And not without merit. One of Juno’s biggest legacy is its quick-witted, snarky dialogue that, many times since then, has tried to be replicated...

The (Truly) Marvelous Mrs. Maisel 

By Spencer Coile 

The year is 1958, and Miriam "Midge" Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) lives on the Upper West Side with her wealthy husband (Michael Zegen) and two children. Her parents (Tony Shaloub and Marin Hinkle) live in the same apartment complex to watch the kids for her. She is dressed to the nines for all occasions, supports her husband's (flailing) career in stand-up comedy, and still has time to whip up a mean brisket. Why would she ever want her life to change? 

Which is to say, of course, that it will and does.

When her husband leaves her for his secretary, Midge angrily (and drunkenly) takes to the stage of the Gaslight, a downtown bar her husband frequently played at, to rant to her audience about this sudden shift. Her improvised venting, though, has the crowd in stitches. And it soon becomes clear that not only is she performing a stand-up routine, she is also quite good at it...

Tweetweek: Grapefruit, Given Names, Wisdom 

Three truths.

so sad but all true observations. The latter I've noticed in social discussions so many times. Okay on to funnier or at least less depressing things after the jump including more Tiffany Haddish, Captain America's beard, Lady Bird, Ava DuVernay being inspiring (what else is new), and so on...
