It's only Wednesday, but it's been a rough week already for all of us. We lost "The King of Queens" ("I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" can't come quick enough, can it?) and "Gilmore Girls" said adieu (the biggest loss to fast-talking freaks since those Micro Machines commercials went off the air). But to every dark storm cloud, there is a silver lining.
And that lining today, my friends, comes in the form of news that Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher are set to star in a romantic comedy called "What Happens in Vegas," about a couple who get married after a night of debauchery.
Methinks Hollywood is on to something here! How about some other slogans or license plate quips inspiring films all their own?!?
Vacationland (Maine) -- The year is 2063. Bowing to the demands of a increasingly debaucherous society, the United States has erected (pun intended) a wall around Maine, creating a land where your every desire is yours for the asking. Welcome to "Vacationland." Starring Matthew McConaughey and Jessica Biel as two pleasure-bots who have just learned there is more to life than carnal desires, "Vacationland" is a journey into our very hearts and minds (and loins). Adrian Lyne helms.
...On My Mind (Georgia) -- Dave Briars is just your average joe with your average problems. That is until a mishap at the local power plant grants Dave the power to read minds. Ray Romano stars in this crazy comedy from the makers of "Phenomenon" and "Sweet Home Alabama."
Great Potatoes. Tasty Destinations. (Idaho) -- Christopher Guest and company cordially invite you to The 147th Great Idaho Potato Fest. A gaggle of eccentrics (Fred Willard's Spud Whirlybird will have you shaking your head) competes for the most coveted prize in all the state. The only sure winner? Your aching sides.
Restart Your Engines (Indiana) -- Wallace Gaines (Josh Lucas) is a race car driver with a problem. His wife just left him for his pit crew captain. Now, with the sponsors threatening to quit on him and the big race looming, he's ready to take the biggest risk of all...starting from scratch.
