Being unpopular in high school can really suck, but when you think about it, there are a lot more unpopular people than the popular type. So what if all the different factions of geek (oh yes, there are different factions) came together as a kind of rebel alliance to gain control of the school once and for all? Jodi and Mindy are well and truly sick of being pushed around by mean girl Whitney and her cronies, and want to put aside their differences and maybe even get along for the rest of their school life. However, when she responds with a horrible prank, Jodi and Mindy decide enough is enough. They decide to gather together all the misfits, weirdos, sci-fi nerds and fantasy geeks - despite the fact that none of them would ever hang out with each other - and make a pact to take over the school halls so they can't be pushed around anymore. But despite their newfound power, as it turns out, popularity isn't everything and they soon find their own friendships tested in a way they never could have imagined before.

Matt Bomer, Kelly Ripa , Ted McGinley - Kelly Ripa honored with star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame at The Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Walk Of Fame - Los Angeles, California, United States - Monday 12th October 2015
Matthew is a preacher of the Lord who finds himself questioning faith when he is confronted by a street preacher carrying a large wooden cross. He decides that belief in God requires action, and he attempts to find new ways of reminding people that belief is forgiveness, redemption and unconditional love. Meanwhile, a couple mourn the untimely loss of their daughter, a woman finds herself on the street with her child, a man miraculously recovers from a coma in his hospital bed while a doctor questions whether it should be God who gets the credit or him. Then there's two partners in crime, who find themselves making the wrong decisions and paying for it. All of these people need guidance from God, and it's Matthew who has to be the one to lead them to it. Will the power of the cross, ultimately, save them all?

Ted McGinley - Ted McGinley and Gigi Rice Hollywood, Los Angeles - The 80th Anniversary of The Hollywood Christmas Parade benefiting Marine Toys For Tots on Hollywood Boulevard Sunday 27th November 2011
In many ways, it's hard to figure out exactly why. It's not, on the surface, particularly well made. It doesn't feature an exceptional amount of skin. Nor is it even really all that funny. It even has Ted McGinley in it. But it's about nerds, and for better or worse, that's a subculture that doesn't easily let go of its icons. Especially pioneering ones, like this film.

Sadly, all the thrills to be had in Physical Evidence are found on its cover. Put simply, it's one of the lamest and least compelling courtroom dramas ever to hit the screen. Burt Reynolds (as the ultimately stereotyped retired, alcoholic cop) is only half the problem. It's author Michael Crichton, directing would would be his last film (at least up to now), who obviously saw reason to throw in the towel after this nightmare.

Imagine a pair of bubble-headed teenage girls plunked down in the middle of "All the President's Men," then transform the major Watergate players (Nixon, Woodward, Bernstein, Liddy, et al) into oafs, and you have the recipe for "Dick," a nimbly-witted marriage of teenage social slapstick and political satire.
A cross-generational comedy that quickly lays out historical details for the uninitiated, then sets about clowning with the fuzzier facts, the movie stars Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams as a couple of dim and giggly 15-year-olds who stumble onto the Watergate break-in (one of them lives in the hotel), then become witnesses to President Nixon's cover-up, after being spotted on a White House tour and appointed "official White House dog-walkers" in order to keep them close and find out what they know.
Since their lives revolve around lip gloss and Bobby Sherman, it takes these two ditzes a while to catch on. After getting lost in the executive mansion, their new buddy President Nixon (a perfectly cast Dan Hedaya) plays off the document-shredding they've seen as a crafts project. "Paper mache is a hobby of mine," he grunts, momentarily unfurrowing his brow.
