Worst of 2011: Worst hair in movies and TV?

Ugh, hair. Sometimes you have luscious, deep-conditioned, well-highlighted tresses like Sarah Braverman and the male and female stars of Twilight, and sometimes you look like Bradley Cooper at the beginning of Limitless. We all have our bad days, but sometimes actors must endure entire bad hair seasons. It’s hard out there for a star! Below, our scraggly shortlists for 2011’s Worst Movie and TV Hair. READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011: Who's the biggest badass of the year?

You may be feeling warm and fuzzy with the holiday season, but we’ll knock that right out of you with our polls crowning the biggest movie and TV badasses of the year. Let’s take a look at the movie nominees first:  READ FULL STORY

A possible 'Horrible Bosses' sequel? We shoot around some ideas.

It’s been the summer of the sequel, and no we don’t mean just because of The Hangover 2, Kung Fu Panda 2, Cars 2 or No Strings Attached 2 (okay, fine, Friends with Benefits). Actually, to be more precise, it’s been the summer of talking about the possibility of the sequel.

We’ve already gotten word that Thor will return to theaters in 2013, but elsewhere there’s been chatter about bringing the ladies of Bridesmaids back for more and a debate on whether or not Something Borrowed will — or should — be continued.

Now it seems Horrible Bosses, which in three weeks has already pulled in over $80 million at the box office, could be the latest to join the sequel society. READ FULL STORY

Summer Movie Body Count: R-rated 'Horrible Bosses' has fewer casualties than 'Cars 2'

Week 10 of of EW’s 2011 Summer Movie Body Count moves along with the raunchy comedy ‘Horrible Bosses’. While the characters in this funny flick don’t abide by any laws, morals, or rules, we most definitely do. Well, at least when it comes to the Body Count (give yourself a refresher on our guidelines for how this whole operation works here.) Now, as we always warn, there are some MAJOR SPOILERS ahead, so if you don’t want to know which characters don’t make it to the end credits, stop right here. Or, at the very least, duck out of work right now and take in a matinée. Your boss will understand.

Summer Movie Body Count is sort of like an Oprah giveaway episode in that it’s always full of surprises (and they may make you totally freak out.) We don’t just mean crazy, unexpected deaths, like when someone literally gets surprised to death. Rather, we refer to the difficulty of predicting how many (or how few) people will die. They just don’t make it easy on us like they used to. 8 Heads in a Duffle Bag? We could have easily guessed how many people die in that one (…eight, right?). READ FULL STORY

When 'The Good Girl' goes bad: Will audiences embrace a naughty Jennifer Aniston?

In the raucous new comedy Horrible Bosses (in theaters today) Jennifer Aniston pulls off, in addition to her clothes, some rather impressive comedic feats. Playing against-type as a sexually aggressive dentist, she not only holds her own against a top-notch boys club, but she also silences her skeptics who argue she’s nothing more than a hair-do.

Even though Aniston is one of the most famous faces in the world, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a trace of her sweetness in Horrible Bosses. (And no, not because her hair looks different.) While the 42-year-old has done some fine work in lighter fare like Marley & Me, The Break-Up, and The Switch, it’s sometimes difficult not to see Aniston, or more specifically, traces of her Friends character Rachel Green. Heck, even in the cult classic Office Space, her chain restaurant employee, Joanna, seemed a close cousin to Central Perk-dwelling Rachel. READ FULL STORY

'Horrible Bosses' co-writer John Francis Daley makes McKinley High proud

It’s hard not to be proud of John Francis Daley in a way not dissimilar to how you would for your little brother. After all, he wasn’t just Lindsay Weir’s (Linda Cardellini) nerdy, sweet, but often-tortured little brother Sam on the beloved Freaks and Geeks. For fans of the criminally short-lived series, Daley’s Sam resembled the little brother we had or wished we had, because he perfectly encapsulated what it felt like to be a younger sibling.

With the good reviews pouring in for the hilarious Horrible Bosses, we can’t help but feel like a beaming older sibling for Daley, who penned the raunchy script along with Jonathan Goldstein and Michael Markowitz. While it’s hardly Daley’s first post-Freaks and Geeks triumphBones fans have been rather sweet on his character Lance for the past four seasons — it’s just another success for the wildly successful McKinley High, whose alums include James Franco, Jason Segel, Seth Rogen, Busy Philipps, and Martin Starr. If there were any justice for the all-too-short-lived series, their current run in Hollywood may be it. READ FULL STORY

'Horrible Bosses' premiere: The best and worst moments, as recalled by its screenwriters -- EXCLUSIVE

Horrible Bosses won’t hit theaters until July 8, but the R-rated comedy starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day as three friends who decide to try to off each other’s soul-crushing superiors held its premiere in Los Angeles Thursday night. We asked cowriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (yes, Bones and Freaks and Geeks fans, he’s a screenwriter too) to pen a list of the five best and five worst moments of their evening. Having an eye for comedy, they naturally chose to lead with the bad… READ FULL STORY
