By Shea Conner "Saturday Night Live" kicked off its season with a big show this past weekend. Swimming superstar Michael Phelps hosted and Tina Fey's impersonation of Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin was spot-on. Some are already calling it an instant classic. I have to admit, the "I can see Russia from my house" line had me laughing hysterically. With that said, I knew it was time to come up with another top 10 movie countdown. In the spirit of "SNL," I give you the top 10...

By Jeff Vice Deseret News THE HOUSE BUNNY -- ** -- Anna Faris, Emma Stone, Colin Hanks; rated PG-13 (vulgarity, profanity, slapstick violence, slurs, brief partial nudity) Anna Faris, you're a funny person. Or at least you can be funny in the right material, which is why you deserve better than "The House Bunny." We all deserve much better than this dumb comedy, actually.

He may be famous for his slapstick schtick, but this time Sandler, the film's lead actor, producer and writer, has decided to push both himself and...

By Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY T he superheroes have flown. Send in the clowns. Sure, there have been a few jokers out there this summer besides the one in The Dark Knight.
