THE PAPERBOY--OMG. This is the darkest thing I've seen in years. I'm calling it "swamp noir." Written and directed by Lee Daniels who gave us the acclaimed PRECIOUS, THE PAPERBOY gets even murkier. The film held me in its terrible grip for more than two hours. Evocatively shot and compellingly told, THE PAPERBOY features an A-list [...]

Gwyneth can sing. This performance with Vince Gill earned her a standing "O" at the recent Country Music Awards. Remember that single Paltrow once recorded with Huey Lewis in 2000 from the movie DUETS?
