She knows where Hollywood keeps its skeletons, and she’s not afraid to throw open closet doors and drag out what she finds within. She’s an absolute master of the stinging put-down, she can belt a big brassy ballad second to none, do a bit of hoofing and is an Academy Award nominee to boot. Read More

Mister D: I don’t think there will be an outcry. This place is not a stadium. If you have to see faces and such….get binoculars. Better yet, just stay home and watch it on TV when it hopefully comes out on DVD.
