Brittany Murphy's Dad Angelo Bertolotti Slams Lifetime's "Trashy" Biopic Of Late Daughter


Brittany Murphy

Since Brittany Murphy became the latest celebrity to land a biopic that will air on Lifetime, 'The Brittany Murphy Story,' her father has not kept quiet about his disgust with the entire project when viewing commercials that are leading up to its Sept. 6th premiere.

Bertolotti has been taking to Twitter to rant about the "cheap" biopic, taking aim at the plot as well as the actress who was cast as his late daughter, Amanda Fuller.

Brittany Murphy's Final Movie, 'Something Wicked,' Is To Be Released In April.

"The first months of reviewing the footage and starting to put things together and then seeing her and hearing her voice, it's very emotional," said Something Wicked writer and producer Joe Colleran, via NY Daily News. "It has been an extremely protracted process, but here we are," he added.

Brittany Murphy's Death Was No Accident, Her Father Claims


Brittany Murphy

Brittany Murphy, the popular Hollywood actress know best for her roles in 8 Mile and Clueless, was believed to have passed away from natural causes in her Los Angeles home in 2009. It was widely believed, and was noted in the coroners report taken after her death, that she died from pneumonia and iron-deficiency anemia, with her intake of prescription drugs a possible stimulant for her death. That is until now, however.

It was at the end of last week that rumours began to become noticeable around the web, rumours that suggested there was more to Brittany's death than the report from the coroners office suggests. Appearing on Tuesday (19 Nov.) morning's edition of Good Morning America, Brittany's father, Angelo Bertolotti, weighed in on his daughter's death, and admitted that he is sure that there were unseen forces at work when his daughter died, admitting that he too believes Brittany was murdered.

"I have a feeling that there was definitely a murder situation here," Angelo told GMA (via ABC News). "Yeah, it's poison. Yes, yes, I know that."

Bongwater Review


Weak
Unfortunately poorly realized, this tale of a pot dealer/artist (Luke Wilson) who ends up going all goofy for a local crazy (Alicia Witt) never really works -- throwing a pile of nutty character actors like Brittany Murphy, Andy Dick, and Jack Black at us in the hopes of making us forget there's no story here. That works from time to time, and Witt is always a charmer, but otherwise this one's a throwaway. Dig that video cover!

Little Black Book Review


Weak
Fall is approaching, and with it comes the next wave of lighthearted romantic comedies that are all that stands between the lonely, desperate women of America and a long, cold winter of depression and self-loathing. First out of the gate is Little Black Book, a cutesy comedy that offers about as much insight into the perils and wonder of human relationships as just about any daytime drama, but with a few laughs thrown in.

As the opening credits roll, we meet Stacy (Brittany Murphy), a young college grad heading out into the exciting world of low-budget television production. She dreams of one day working with her childhood idol, Diane Sawyer. And her mother loves Carly Simon. I don't know why the part about Carly Simon is important, but it's a recurring theme throughout the film. If her mother ever actually got any screen time, perhaps the Carly Simon thing would become at least marginally relevant to the story. But no dice. Even so, we're treated to several inexplicable Carly Simon moments that have nothing to do with anything, really, and don't add anything of substance to the film.

Uptown Girls Review


Weak

The last thing I wrote in my notes at the preview screening of "Uptown Girls" was "could have been worse." I guess that means some part of me was somewhat charmed by this silly, weightless yet self-serious modern fairy tale of a dead rock star's impetuously carefree daughter who must come to terms with the real world when her accountant absconds with her inheritance.

But the contrived story gets by only on the middling magnetism of its stars: Brittany Murphy as flighty, Peter-Pan-syndromed Molly Gunn and 8-year-old Dakota Fanning as Ray, an uptight little rich girl who slowly loosens up when Molly takes a job as her nanny.

As they learn neatly packaged life lessons from each other and grow into more well-round people, the laughs are often predicated on either Murphy's pratfalls (beautiful actresses playing clumsy is Hollywood's idea of making them seem "common") or the cuteness quotient of a pretty blonde child wearing Chanel, listening to Mozart, acting snooty and speaking in multi-syllabic words she can hardly wrap her mouth around.

Drop Dead Gorgeous Review


Weak

Leaning hard into ham-fisted mockery of beauty pageants and Midwesterners, "Drop Dead Gorgeous" is an exercise in frustration.

It's frustrating because this mocumentary condemnation of the objectification of teenage girls is ripe with thick, delicious layers of irony, but director Michael Patrick Jann -- whose background is in sketch comedy -- allows that irony to be beaten to death by cheap, madcap overacting.

Following two frontrunners in the fictional American Teen Princess Pageant, "Gorgeous" applies its comedy with all the precision of a paint roller. Wide swaths of disposable laughs come from parading the absurdly varied and one-dimensional contestants before the camera. There's a showtune freak with a drag queen brother, a fat chick, an American girl adopted by Japanese immigrants, a brainiac who wants to do a Shakespeare soliloquy in the talent competition, an interpretive dancer and a soccer dyke -- whose death in a farming accident sets up the plot, revolving around how far one girl might go to win.
