Jane (Meryl Streep) is the mother of three grown kids, owns a
thriving Santa Barbara bakery restaurant and has, after a decade of divorce, an
amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake (Alec Baldwin).
But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son's college
graduation, things start to get complicated. An innocent meal together turns
into the unimaginable, an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness,

renewed romance is Adam (Steve Martin), an architect hired to
remodel Jane's kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his own, Adam starts to fall
for Jane, but soon realizes he's become part of a love triangle. Should Jane and
Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around?
Three time World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali defeated almost
every top fighter of the golden age of boxing and symbolized the sport for
generations of fans. Now, ten of his acclaimed rivals pay tribute to perhaps the
world's most beloved and inspiring athlete. From the moment he captured the gold
at the 1960 Summer Olympics, the fighter who first came to prominence as Cassius
Clay electrified the world and transformed the art of boxing. Articulate,
handsome, charismatic and outspoken, he became an icon of the burgeoning civil
rights movement and a hero to millions around the globe. A master showman and a
brilliant strategist, Ali won as much by getting inside his opponents' heads as
by his astounding physical talents. With exclusive interviews and vintage
footage from the champ's unmatched career, "Facing Ali" recreates his most
unforgettable rivalries, and recounts his triumphs, tragedies and unstoppable
Brooke Mueller's Aspen social schedule hasn't been cramped by her
ugly Christmas incident with Charlie Sheen. After attending a
cocktail party at her mother's home last night, Brooke headed to the Caribou
Club, a celeb hot spot in the small ski town. "Brooke was low-key," a source
tells E! News. "She was talking to friends and walking around the small club,
but she stayed until closing time." Although Paris Hilton, Doug
Reinhardt and Gerard Butler were all partying at the same
place, Brooke hung with her own group and stayed under the radar.

their way, James McAvoy will be playing the man who created James
The box office gods were not kind to Rob Marshall's Nine
over the weekend. After expanding from four to 1,412 theaters, the movie musical
grossed only $5.4 million with an incredibly disappointing $3,862 average. If
The Weinstein Company and Relativity Media production had been a
low budget indie along the lines of The Hurt Locker, A
Single Man or Crazy Heart this wouldn't be that big a concern.
However, Nine cost $65 million to make.
You might as well mothball those Tay-Tay and Team Swifter T-shirts you were
printing out for the new year, Taylor Swift and Taylor
Lautner have split, and were never all that serious in the first place. "It

is," a source close to Swift says. "They went out on a few dates and realized
this was just not going anywhere." A Lautner source corroborated that
perspective, adding that the fact the two rising stars lived nearly a continent

natural causes on Monday in Huntington Beach.
You don't usually see the #1 cable debut get canceled in its first season, but
that's what has happened to The Jeff Dunham Show. Comedy

Vanessa Hudgens is giving leaked nude photos of herself some extra
publicity in the name of justice. The High School Musical star is suing
the owners of www.moejackson.com for posting some very revealing pictures
of Hudgens on their site. According to the lawsuit, “the photos were obtained by
unknown methods and posted on the internet by an unknown person without Hudgens’
knowledge or consent.” TMZ reports that the actress also registered the
photos with the U.S. Copyright Office so if you see a nude pic of Vanessa
Hudgens on a postage stamp, rest assured she’s getting paid.
