Watch Kate Beckinsale and Judy Greer Parody Republicans’ War on Women

By

Sometimes the news about reproductive rights is so weird that you have to laugh about it (if only to prevent yourself from crying). Kate Beckinsale, Judy Greer, and Andrea Savage do just that in a new Funny or Die video that parodies Republicans’ obsession with women’s private parts. As a trio of GOP women, they explain that they don’t want government interfering in their classrooms or banks — but they do want it “way, way deep up there in my vagina.” We don’t want to ruin this by quoting too much (OK, just one more: “Let the Oval Office take care of your Oval Office”), so just watch the hilarious video after the jump.

What If The Expendables Were Women?

By

The Expendables opens today, and if you didn’t know already, it’s an action movie that features a leather bag brimming with bundled cash, a helpless woman with an accent, and lots of bad-ass dudes dressed in black running around killing other men lesser than themselves. Sylvester Stallone directs the cast of scowling veterans — whose average age must be around 50 — in a film that is sure to be about exactly what it looks like it’ll be about. We, however, wondered if this movie would be doing better with critics if the male action superstars were replaced by their female counterparts. Click past the jump to witness the possible genesis of The Expendables II.

By

In this remake of Guiseppe Tornatore’s Stanno Tutti Bene, Robert De Niro plays a widower who takes a road trip to reconnect with his grown children (Drew Barrymore, Kate Beckinsale, and Sam Rockwell), when they simultaneously cancel their trips home for the holidays. In the wake of their mother’s death, his kids have all become a bit estranged — and lead him to believe that they’re much happier and more successful than they really are. All he wants is the truth.
