Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, April 24, 2009

“Hey boy, hey boy! You look mighty cute in them jeans . . .”, Eddie Murphy, “Delirious”


It’s been forever and a day since Eddie Murphy was funny, which is a real shame because he was one of the best for a long, long time. Oh well, I’d laugh at virtually anything since it’s Friday, but before I can find a chuckle on some shaded patio serving cold beer in the 85 degree weather, let’s look at hard stories of the week such as:

Bill Murray gave a fan an autographed copy of ‘Caddyshack’ to a fan this week one day after accidentally striking the woman – Gayle DiMaggio - on the head with his golf ball following an errant tee shot.


DiMaggio was thrilled with the gesture, but also requested Murray give her a detailed account about caddying for the Dali Lama, the 12th son of the Lama.

Madonna was injured while riding a horse this past week during a visit to the Hamptons.

She was transported to Southampton Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries and bruises and released, her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said in a statement.

Rosenberg's statement said Madonna's horse "was startled by paparazzi who jumped out of the bushes to photograph the singer."


Meanwhile, the Horse said in a statement that he “was startled when Madonna attempted to reach under and touch his private area” and that’s what caused the accident.

Jackie Chan told an Asian audience at a Business Forum this week that freedom in China might not be a positive thing.

"I'm not sure if it's good to have freedom or not," Chan said Saturday, adding freedoms in his native Hong Kong and Taiwan made those societies "chaotic." "I'm gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we're not being controlled, we'll just do what we want," he said.


Chan soured on freedom when he chose to do what he wanted and those choices resulted in ‘Shanghai Knights.’

Salma Hayek is planning to get married again this weekend in Venice, Italy when she will exchange vows again with French billionaire François-Henri Pinault.

The wedding features a traditional rehearsal dinner Friday, followed by a ceremony Saturday at the Palazzo Grassi, a historic white-marble palace owned by the Pinault family. The duo married for the first time on Valentine’s Day 2009 in Paris.


Once was horribly painful, but now Hayek is just rubbing this in my face and I’ve had enough. Who am I kidding, I could never stay mad at her . . .

Authorities in Mumbai were investigating a British report claiming that the father of a young girl who appeared in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ tried to sell her for adoption for $290,000.

The father, Rafiq Qureshi, has flatly denied the allegations that he attempted to broke the deal for his daughter, Rubina Ali.


I hope this story is false, but if true, someone should explain to Qureshi that $290,000.00 does not make him a ‘Millionaire.’

In this weeks worthless Lindsay Lohan news bulletin, Fox News is reporting that the tabloid-prone actress is in talks to appear in "Peepshow," an allegedly racy-yet-respectable burlesque/musical starring currently playing in Las Vegas with Kelly Monaco and Mel B.


This job would be just another stepping stone in Lohan’s descent into making pornography.

Hugh Jackman, star of the upcoming "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," made Hollywood history on Tuesday by sinking his hand and foot prints into cement outside the famous Mann's Chinese Theater.

"It's a very humbling moment as an actor to be here. You look down at the names, from Fred Astaire to Cary Grant, Clint Eastwood, Al Pacino, Steve McQueen, John Wayne, and to think that those people have been immortalized and pretty soon I'll be putting my hands in wet cement," Jackman said, before planting his palms in the concrete.


He should have worn his Wolverine claws to make the indentions because without them Jackman might be working inside Mann’s theater.

Let’s follow Jackman’s fine achievement with a gold image or two:



I suddenly feel a little muy caliente, an expression I never use because I sound like a buffoon while saying it. But it’s true nonetheless as my temperature is rising just looking at these images. So, don’t be afraid to work up a sweat today, shed clothing if necessary so you don’t trap the moisture and . . . Happy Friday!

  2. Must be a slow week when the biggest story is Madonna having sex with a horse. The Sun also rises in the east, doesn't make it news though.

    Anyhoo... Happy Friday!

    And I feel really sorry for that horse.

  4. I recently aquired a dvd copy of "Delirious" - it's good stuff, although his "Jackson-style" leather outfit cracks me up more than anything else during the show.

    It's a good thing Bill Murray didn't offer her "greasey, grimey gopher guts".

    You got me on the Madonna injury. I was gonna go with, define "riding"...

    I don't mind Chan's views, as long as Chris Tucker DOESN'T have freedom, either.

    I think Hayek is simply requiring François-Henri Pinault to marry the OTHER breast now.

    $ 290,000 ? Hell, I'd sell MY kid for that !

    This would probably be the most "racy-yet-respectable" thing Lohan has done in awhile ! Bring on "Lindsay Pornhan" !

    Oh, you stopped me COLD on the Jackman line !!!

    And in closing, SWEAT IT OUT, BDS !!

    Have a good one.

     
  5. Who should you believe?
    An equine or a jenny?
    Why, the horse, of course.

    Which man was braver?
    First to eat oysters or the
    last to eat Lohan?

    First image, priceless.
    The Master will study it
    and find hidden truths.

  7. My husband just got back from Vegas and they were supposed to meet the "Peepshow" cast at some meet and greet but it never panned out. Probably no big loss with Monaco and Mel B. ha I think that last final image is former supermodel Stephanie Seymour.. You know, Axl's former flame? ;)
    Have a great weekend.

     
  8. WIGSF – It did feel like a slow news week as these things tend to run in cycles. I also feel bad for the horse, but he did extract some measure of revenge. Happy Friday & enjoy it.

    Heff – I appreciate the detail, so that leather outfit was awesome for 1984 (or whenever it came out), I could quote ‘Caddyshack’ all day, the riding would be have been a good one, thought about using ‘Rush Hour,’ that makes sense with Hayek as I wouldn’t play favorites, that’s a fine porn name for Lohan, glad to get you with the closing & I think we can all sweat it out to that one. Happy Friday Heff.

    Master Basho – Whole comment made me laugh, especially the oyster part. And I agree about the image as that was my favorite in quite some time & felt lucky to come across it. Good luck deciphering the hidden parts. Happy Friday.

    Jlee – I kind of like Monaco myself as she seems in fine shape. Ha. I have no idea about that last image, but it could be now that you mention it. I remember the name because of the Rose connection, but can’t exactly recall what she looks like. I’ll have to investigate this difficult issue . . . Happy Friday.

  10. bwahahahahah to Eddie Murphy in “Delirious. We STILL quote the rest of the "cute jean" joke. Too bad he sold out and starting make crappy Disney movies.

    I'm thinking I'd like Johnny Depp to whack me in the head with a golf ball, because I wouldn't be asking for an autographed picture.

    ;-)

    Have a great weekend!

  12. Eddie always cracked me on on those ridiculous SNL sketches. Of course they were all reruns by the time I got to them. I have yet to see him in anything worthwhile since oh the 70's.

     
  13. nobich Says:
  14. Happy Friday!

     
  15. BostonPobble Says:
  16. God, I miss Eddie Murphy's funny days...

    Is it just me or has Madonna gotten really creepy ~ and creepy-looking ~ in the last couple years? I will defer to your superior pop culture knowledge on this one.

    Lindsey...ah Lindsey.

    Jackman is actually amazing when doing live theatre. The talent doesn't translate as well onto the big screen, admittedly, but on stage the man is stunning. Of course, on the big screen, you can see those eyes of his better so, um, yeah. Were there other pictures in this post, because I don't remember them.

     
  17. Boxer - "Now, get on over here and . . . " there's a reason I didn't finish that in the post. Ha. And to my knowledge, Depp doesn't play golf, although I'm not an expert, so I could be wrong. Regardless, Happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - Me too on the 'SNL' bits as that was in his high point, but he had some good stuff in the 80s for sure: Trading Places, Beverly Hills Cop, etc. The 2000s, however, have been nothing short of abysmal.

    Nobich - Happy Friday to you & sorry about missing your response to the email post as my brain must have been going sideways. Ha. Enjoy the weekend.

    Bostonbpobble - Madonna has been turning creepy indeed as it's just going to be a mash-up experiment as she ages and continues to stay in the public eye and screw 17-year-olds (maybe her dancer is slighly older, but still . . . ). And I do like Jackman as he seems like a reasonably nice guy, which might be slightly different from the attributes that you seem to admire. Ha. And yes, there were definitely other pictures past him. Definitely. Happy Friday.

     
  18. Nobich - Meant Password post . . . brain still foggy.

     
  19. I wonder if that means Lindsay Lohan will be moving into my neighborhood. I might actually like her if I got to see her naked.

     
  20. Linda Says:
  21. Yeah,I remember when Eddie Murphy was funny. Little too full of himself these days.

    Good God, when will the media lose interest in Lohan? After watching her interviewed recently, I think she's just an attention addict, and I'm not sure they have a rehab for that.

    Does Hayek really have to get married again? Most of us just call it a party. These celebs who sneak off for a "private" wedding, then come home and throw a big hoop-dee-doo wedding seem to be a trend. Ahhh the lives of the rich and famous.

    Always thank you for any image of Hugh Jackman *sigh*.

    Happy Friday!!!

     
  22. Farzan Says:
  23. Good for Jackman, but bad for Lohan

     
  24. Native Minnow – She’s still pretty good looking in a trashy kind of a way. She would at least be fun to hit the nightlife with in Vegas. I guarantee you that . . .

    Linda – Yep. I agree about Murphy and Lohan as the latter just baffles me that she continues to make so many media waves with no product to plug. You’re welcome on the Jackman image as I tend to like Hugh even though I’m not overly excited about Wolverine (thought I’ll probably go see it). Happy Belated Friday.

    Farzan – Agreed. I’d say Jackman has the brighter career ahead of him. Ha.

     
  25. I would, with Madge and the horse!
