    32 Movies with the Most Memorable Food Scenes

    While eating a highly custom sandwich at the famed Katz’s Deli in New York City, Sally (Meg Ryan) fakes an orgasm to prove to her pal Harry that women are great actresses in the bedroom. When you’re not used to being the nanny, let alone a woman, it’s inevitable that there will be a mishap or two in the kitchen—and there’s nothing funnier than Robin Williams dressed as Mrs. Doubtfire setting his burgeoning bosoms on fire while cooking! An honorable mention from this amazing flick is when Williams plants his face into a whipped-cream pie in order to disguise himself. Is there anything more glamorous than Holly Golightly in her famous little black dress, sunglasses, and updo, enjoying a pastry and coffee while looking in the window of Tiffany’s on Fifth Avenue in the opening scene of the classic movie?

    The crazy story behind the third Addams Family film that went straight-to-VHS

    The first two big-screen adaptations of Charles Addams’ comic strip about a spooky clan were box office successes. Here’s the story behind ‘Addams Family Reunion’ from the man who directed it, Dave Payne. Based on a comic strip and in turn the 1960s TV series, Paramount’s ‘The Addams Family’ (1991) and 1993’s ‘Addams Family Values’ were both solid hits, making a combined £191million for the studio.

    Casino Royale turns 10: Remember when people HATED Daniel Craig as Bond?

    With ‘Casino Royale’ about to celebrate its 10th anniversary, we look back the crazy anti-Craig fan reaction that greeted the announcement he would take over from Pierce Brosnan as 007. The trolling began the moment Daniel Craig arrived by speedboat at the London press conference unveiling him as the new James Bond – wearing a life jacket. Immediately, so-called 007 fans started whinging that James would never be such a wuss, clearly confused that the ‘Layer Cake’ star was a 37-year-old actor from Chester and not a real secret agent.

    The tragic real life of Sloth from The Goonies

    Lovable ‘Goonies’ giant Sloth is about as iconic a movie character as it’s possible to be, but the man behind the make-up lived a tragic life worthy of its own Hollywood story. Every time a noteworthy anniversary rolls around, it’s fun to catch up with the stars of Richard Donner’s seminal 80s adventure 'The Goonies’. The young cast had more than its fair share of characters: from a teenage Josh Brolin to an already-famous Corey Feldman to proto-hobbit Sean Astin, 'The Goonies’ – now 30 years old – feels like one of those dyed-in-the-wool genre classics, the kind you just can’t make any more.

    When ‘Crocodile Dundee’ became a sleeper phenomenon in 1986, earning the equivalent of £292million at the worldwide box office, Paul Hogan briefly became one of the biggest stars in the world. Aged 46, he then gathered his telly collaborators together to write and produce ‘Crocodile Dundee’. Shot on a budget of £7.5m, it was the second-highest-grossing movie of 1986 – Hogan won a Golden Globe for Best Actor and was nominated for the Best Screenplay Oscar.

    The Most Un-PC Scenes From The Carry On Movies

    The 17th movie in the franchise, released in 1969, is one of the most iconic, primarily for the moment in which Barbara Windsor’s bikini flies off while she exercises. James was 56 by the time the film was made, but that didn’t stop his character falling for the luscious Babs. Which is fine, apart from the fact that Babs is at Chayste Place Finishing School and is thus, we guess, supposed to be in her late teens.

    Born Norbert Grupe in 1940, von Homburg’s father Richard was a famous German boxer who was also (he said reluctantly) a Nazi soldier during World War II, even working at the Buchenwald death camp. Norbert lived with his father and never talked to his mother who had been a passing fling, leading to a difficult childhood before he and Richard moved to California. The pair worked as a wrestling tag team and young Norbert changed his name to von Homburg, a move he later regretted because he worried it made him sound like a Nazi nobleman.
