With many movies, especially the recent glut of remakes, it’s easy to figure out why they’re being made. But others, including three releases from this week — Passion Play, The Beaver, and Hobo with a Shotgun — have plots so implausible that they must be jokes, we thought, until they actually came to theaters. Find out how aliens, hand puppets, angel wings, deadly snakes, and mythical characters all made it to the big screen, and whether they made good on their promises to entertain. More

In case you’ve been living under a rock in the past week, you’ve probably heard about designer John Galliano‘s getting suspended from Christian Dior after he reportedly unleashed a string of anti-Semitic remarks in a cafe and was arrested. Now, another woman is stepping forward and released a video of him ranting, saying to her, “I love Hitler” and “People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers, would all be f****** gassed.” He also calls her ugly. None of the people he insulted actually were Jewish, but John Galliano must have believed they were (stereotype much?). Nevertheless, everyone who was on the receiving end of the remarks was horrified at his hateful words.
It appears that John Galliano might be an anti-Semite, or at the very least, a giant asshole. Unfortunately, he’s not the one to make himself look like an anti-Semite, or at least put his foot in his mouth big-time. Here are some celebrities who have made anti-Semitic statements in the past. More

After Mel Gibson‘s DUI-related anti-semitic rant four years ago, the world seemed pretty shocked to hear of the actor’s apparently deeply-rooted racism. But Winona Ryder claims she’s known about Mel’s bigotry for years, claiming he’s both anti-semitic and homophobic — and in no way shy about letting those opinions out. In an interview with GQ, Winona explained: More

Yesterday, we reported the modern-day Prince and Pauper tale of a pair of similar Beaver parody videos: One, a humble Funny or Die web piece and the other a segment from ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. Both intercut the trailer with chioce portions of Mel Gibson‘s infamous phone calls to Oksana Grigorieva. Our interview with the Funny or Die video’s creator led us to believe that his idea may have been thefted by Jimmy and co., but the show’ co-head writer, Gary Greenberg, cleared the rumor up:
“While it may seem implausible that more than one party could conceive such a groundbreaking idea simultaneously, that is the case. In fact, five of our nine writers pitched the identical idea. We have never stolen anything from anyone.”
Over the weekend, a video parodying the trailer for Mel Gibson’s new movie, Beaver, hit the web. On Monday, a very similar video aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The two vids, brilliant in their obviousness, intercut the trailer with Mel Gibson’s infamous phone calls to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
The trailer on Kimmel wasn’t the exact same one but rather makes use of the phone call conceit. Of course it’s possible that Jimmy’s writers simply had the same idea — it is the logical joke, after all. However, the original video was on the front page of Funny or Die and heavily linked around the web. And here’s the kicker: On Monday, one of the video’s creators, Dan Samiljan, tweeted a link to the video at Jimmy Kimmel. Then, a day later, he was blocked from Jimmy’s account. Dan explained the situation to us: More
