In the post Travolta described Jett as ‘my everything’ adding, ‘those 16 years of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally.’

John TravoltaA Facebook post reportedly written by John Travolta about his late son Jett has gone viral.

"They say the hardest thing in the world is losing a parent. I can now say that isn’t true. The hardest thing in the world is losing a child,” the 61-year-old reportedly wrote (via The Express). "Someone you raised and watched grow everyday. Someone you taught how to walk and talk. Someone you showed how to love.”

Video - Kelly Preston Takes Time To Talk With Photographers Outside ABC Studios


Actress and model Kelly Preston (Jerry Maguire; Twins; Jack Frost) outside the ABC Studios in New York for 'Good Morning America'. She arrives at the studios in a brown dress and smiles as she talks and waves to the photographers. When she leaves later on, she is now wearing a long coat and gloves. She signs a few autographs and talks to another photographer before she gets into the waiting car.

Kelly is married to John Travolta (Grease; Get Smart; Saturday Night Fever). They have three children together: Jett; Ella Bleu and Benjamin Hunter Kaleo. Unfortunately for the couple, their oldest child Jett died in 2009, reportedly from a seizure

The Last Song Trailer


Author Nicholas Sparks is certainly a popular man in Hollywood at the moment his hugely popular books Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe and Dear John have all been turned into movies and now the latest addition to his catalogue The Last Song will receive the same treatment.

Old Dogs Review


Terrible
To call this comedy a disaster is an understatement. It's aggressively awful, and manages to push its worst gags so numbingly off the scale that we're left slack-jawed in disbelief. Amazingly, the cast members just about get out alive.

Charlie and Dan (Travolta and Williams) are old pals and partners as sports publicists. Charlie is a relentless bachelor, teasing Dan about his impulsive, brief Vegas marriage to Vicki (Preston) eight years earlier. What neither of them knows is that Vicki gave birth to Dan's twins (Ella Bleu Travolta and Rayburn), and now she needs him to watch them for two weeks. Nutty antics ensue as these cute kids upset these men's life, dragging them off for a weekend camping trip and of course slowly winning them over in the process.

Death Sentence Review


Weak
In Paul Talbot's excellent Bronson's Loose! The Making of the Death Wish Films, Brian Garfield, author of the original Death Wish novel, says he was disappointed in the 1974 Charles Bronson film of his book because it lacked subtlety. In fact, he wrote the sequel, Death Sentence, to counteract what he saw as the negative effects of the film. Death Sentence, the book, is about reformation and going legit. It's about why vigilantism just doesn't work. Man, did this movie screw up that message.

Director James Wan's (Saw) version of Death Sentence is practically a celebration of vigilantism. Sure, the film hammers home the message that the business of revenge is soul-rotting, but it doesn't offer up any other solutions. The legal system doesn't work. Cops are lazy and slow. Worse, they are helpless. And the bad guys always can and will find you. The only place a person is safe today is behind the barrel of a gun.

Holy Man Review


Terrible
Pop quiz. You're Eddie Murphy, a popular comedian who makes about a decade of bad movies. You then do a remake of a Jerry Lewis classic and you're back in the swing of things. People start to like you again. Why would you do Holy Man?

In this awful, Saturday Night Live sketch gone bad, Jeff Goldblum stars in a thankless role as an infomercial executive who needs to find good product or he'll be fired. He stumbles upon G (Murphy), a mysterious man in a white sheet who speaks eloquently about.... uh....stuff. Goldblum has the inevitable romance with co-worker Kelly Preston, who are about as compatible as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Walter Mathau.

Jerry Maguire Review


Good
Let's all breathe a sigh of relief that we've got Almost Famous, for without that giddy skip down music's memory lane, there's a chance Jerry Maguire would have been considered the quintessential Cameron Crowe movie.

Not that Maguire is a bad movie ... it isn't. Nor is it an overwhelmingly fantastic movie, despite what its five Academy Award nominations would have you believe (the film was nominated for Best Picture and Tom Cruise for Best Actor, but only co-star Cuba Gooding Jr. walked away with a statuette). It's just not Crowe's most complete, recognized picture, a distinction that ultimately belongs to Famous. Hence the sigh of relief.

Jack Frost Review


Bad
Not to be confused with the horror film of the same name, this Jack Frost is still so frightening I'd hesitate to put it before any child who ever plans to see a snowman. In this bizarre and god-awful tale, a conveniently-named Colorado blues singer (Colorado blues singer???) called Jack Frost (Keaton) gets his big break on Christmas Day and has to abandon his family to sign the record deal. Naturally, storm hits, car goes off road, Jack dies, and naturally he comes back to life as a snowman. He eats frozen vegetables and tries not to melt, while getting in some quality time with son Charlie (Cross), including hockey lessons with a tree branch. Hideous effects and a just-plain-bad premise make this one to stay away from.

Addicted To Love Review


Very Good
The idea of a "revenge comedy" naturally appeals to my dark side, and I've always been a Matthew Broderick fan -- so what could keep me from getting out to this little film? Not much. Not the fact that the first act feels like it was put together while the writer was under anesthetic. Not the fact that the film's editing is better described as butchery. Not the fact that Broderick as a hick astronomer is a bit far-fetched. Not the fact that Kelly Preston is an unbelievable bore to watch.

No, none of this could keep me from laughing at the hysterics of Broderick and Meg Ryan trying to win back and irrevocably destroy their respective lovers. While Addicted to Love has more gaping plot holes than you can shake a stick at, it's still awfully funny when it wants to be, largely carried on the shoulders of Broderick's natural charm and a cast of thousands (of roaches). And Meg Ryan ain't bad, either.

Bar Hopping Review


Weak
Scott Baio, Sally Kellerman, Kevin Healon, and John Henson!!! Together again for the first time. And likely the last. This homage to the L.A. single bar scene has its moments, but it's mostly just pathetic. Tom Arnold narrates the action -- if you can call it that; it's really just a series of disjointed vignettes that end up in the same bar at last call -- with a snide, yet utterly ambivalent, sneer. Will Scott Baio get the girl? Where's Joanie when you need her?

Eulogy Review


OK
Michael Clancy's Eulogy is sort of a sitcom version of The Royal Tenenbaums, with its estranged family united by a dying (well, in this case, dead) patriarch who no one particularly likes (played here, briefly, by Rip Torn). The most sympathetic and grounded member of the family is Kate (Zooey Deschanel); she is chosen to deliver her grandfather's eulogy, and must extract scarce fond memories from her father Daniel (Hank Azaria) and his siblings Skip, Lucy, and Alice (Ray Romano, Kelly Preston, and Debra Winger, respectively).

Standard black-comedy stuff, then, though not without promise. Clancy doesn't have a strong directorial touch, operating only a level or two above the point-and-shoot techniques of an actual sitcom -- and a little lower when it comes to the laugh-track ready entrances and exits. But he does capture the feel -- the shabby decor, the lines of cereal boxes, the personal trepidation -- of a reluctant and unkempt family gathering. The Collins family is trapped in the family home until the funeral is over, foraging for emotional connections purely out of necessity. Whether this authenticity is achieved through close observation or a low budget is not immediately apparent; regardless, Eulogy's distaff family unit is more or less convincing -- as a whole, at least.

For Love Of The Game Review


Excellent
My brother says I shouldn't review sports movies. Because I'm not a sports fan, he says, I can't be objective.

He may have a point, but I don't think For Love of the Game is fundamentally a sports movie. Sure, suit Kevin Costner up in a baseball uniform and you might think you're looking at another Field of Dreams, but For Love of the Game is something we don't see a lot of. Allow me to explain.

Continue reading: For Love Of The Game Review

Citizen Ruth Review


Good
It's been a while since I've anticipated a film this greatly and been let down so much by the actual product. Filmed from Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor's extremely entertaining script, Citizen Ruth had a lot to live up to. Of course, in some ways, it does, and in some, it doesn't. Geez, you'd think I would be used to disappointment by now!

Citizen Ruth is the story of Ruth Stoops (Laura Dern), a "huffer" (paint/glue/other hazardous vapor sniffer) who finds herself the unlikely center of a modern morality play. Ruth, pregnant for the fifth time and up on drug charges once again, is given a choice by an unsympathetic judge: go to jail for criminally endangering her fetus, or have an abortion and face a lighter sentence. Immediately, ires are raised and banners are crafted from both sides of the abortion issue -- with Ruth Stoops, the lowest of the low, right in the middle.

The Cat In The Hat Review


Terrible
Make a movie about a black cat, and you're just asking to be cursed with a streak of bad luck. Yet even the most hardened cynic will be surprised at how far Universal's The Cat in the Hat strays from the childish antics of Dr. Seuss' original work. Judging from this humorless monstrosity, the Cat team spent 10 years working on their film's decorative appearance and a combined 10 minutes writing sleazy jokes and a catastrophic script that I wouldn't use to line a litter box.

Director Bo Welch and production designer Alex McDowell earn a few points for their visions. Welch perfected his craft on lavishly bizarre features like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, and McDowell's design work on Cat literally sets Seuss's story free from the page. The gorgeous sets form a pastel feast for the eyes. They're a sight to be seen, yet they're inserted into an unwatchable bomb that shouldn't be seen by anyone.

Battlefield Earth Review


Terrible
There are two things the American film industry should avoid at all costs. One is letting an ambitious actor convert one of his or her favorite novels into a feature film. Two is never greenlight a sci-fi film starring John Travolta. To wit, we present the disaster that is Battlefield Earth.

A science-fiction opus starring the Barbarino of the Actors Guild, Battlefield Earth should be shown only at maximum-security prisons when a prisoner is tossed in solitary for bad behavior. Sci-fi is always a tricky beast: Tight script, a good director, an ensemble cast of decent actors, and the ability to suspend even the most difficult of disbeliefs. Battlefield Earth fails at achieving even one of these attributes.

Continue reading: Battlefield Earth Review

What A Girl Wants Review


Weak
Don't be fooled by the title. Despite being named after a Christina Aguilera song, What a Girl Wants is not a movie about a good-girl-turned-trashy-ho. Rather, it's the story of a sweet, all-American girl who generally enjoys her life but can't get past one thing: She's never met her father. As her high school days come to an end, young Daphne Reynolds (Amanda Bynes) decides it's time to meet this mysterious man who managed to woo her mother so many years ago, and so she throws her passport into her backpack and heads off to London.

What ensues is a standard fairy tale: Daphne quickly finds her father, Henry (Colin Firth), but is hindered in her attempt to forge a meaningful relationship thanks to an evil stepmother and debutante stepsister who are only interested in Henry's status and wealth. Fortunately, Daphne's got her American charm on her side and, with the help of her wise grandmother and cute new boyfriend, she's able to win Henry's heart and even manages to get him back together with mom. They all live happily ever after, as we are told at the end.

Sky High Review


OK
Sky High" must have felt like something of a homecomingfor Kurt Russell. Just like the cheap, low-standards kiddie flicks he starredin as a teenager ("The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes," "NowYou See Him, Now You Don't"), it's a cliche-dependent, high-conceptDisney cheapy that aims no higher than the unsophisticated standards ofits pre-adolescent target audience -- and somehow succeeds in spite ofitself.

One of many family-oriented superhero movies rushed intoproduction after the boffo box office of "TheIncredibles," this story revolves aroundWill Stronghold (talented Michael Angarano, "AlmostFamous"), the 15-year-old son of CommanderStronghold (Russell) and Josie Jetstream (Kelly Preston), the world's greatestsuperheroes.

Will has yet to hit superhero puberty -- Dad's colossalstrength and Mom's ability to fly elude him -- so he's instantly an outcastwhen he begins his freshman year at Sky High, a cloud-floating school forthe super-powered. Despite having legendary parents, he's stuck in a classfor sidekicks (sorry, "Hero Support"), along with other teenagerswhose gifts (for, say, glowing in the dark or commanding plant life) aren'tadequately impressive.

Beyond blessing the picture with the occasional rib-ticklingone-liner, screenwriters Robert Schooley and Mark McCorkle (veterans ofDisney Channel's "Kim Possible" cartoon) rely almost entirelyon tedious 'tween-movie staples for their plot: Will develops an instantcrush on a beautiful, popular senior (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), therebyalienating his equally cute, long-term best friend (Danielle Panabaker)who, in turn, not so secretly pines for him.

View From The Top Review


Bad

To the endless soundtrack of grating girl-empowerment country music ditties and romantic '80s hair-band rock, Gwyneth Paltrow crash-lands in "View From the Top," playing a Nevada-bred white-trash ditz who dreams of a "glamorous" life as a flight attendant.

There were no survivors (at least in terms of pride) among the cast that includes Christina Applegate, Mark Ruffalo, Candice Bergen and Kelly Preston -- all of whom certainly must have signed on to a script that looked very different from this inept and lifeless comedy.

Having sat on a shelf for more than a year and having been edited down to what feels like an endless 87 minutes (a run-time that short is often a tell-tale sign of desperate post-production rescue attempts), "View From the Top" finds few fresh jokes in its formulaic plot (think "Legally Blonde" at 30,000 feet). Paltrow's career path is challenged by a catty competitor (Applegate) who gets her assigned to puddle-jumpers. A love interest (Ruffalo) in Cleveland (a backwater berg from the movie's point of view) forces her to choose between following her heart and chasing a prestige stewardessing gig on "Paris first class international" flights.

For Love Of The Game Review


OK

It's hard not to admire Kevin Costner for his stanch dedication to making old-fashioned movies that defy our acidic modern world.

Unapologetically sentimental, he insists through films like "Field of Dreams," "The Postman," "Message in a Bottle" and now "For Love of the Game," that melodrama is not outdated, and the man has an aptitude for jerking tears from even the most reluctant ducts.

Sometimes he tries too hard, and frequently he tries too long (it's been 10 years since he made a movie under two hours), but chick flick or cautionary futurist yarn, he almost always succeeds in taking hold of the viewer's heart, even as some of us wince at his methods.
