ONTD Original: 6 RomComs with problematic, misogynistic, and/or racist storylines


Here on ONTD, we love our romcoms. Well, at least a good portion does. They have all the common and cheesy tropes that we love and expect. However, some romcoms take things to another problematic level. Let’s take a look at six of them, and yes, I’m aware that there are so many others. This post is so that we can get that conversation going and you’re always welcome to share others you feel should be mentioned and discussed in the comments. :)



The Big Wedding (2013)
Where the fuck do I begin? Brownface, racist dialogue, casting choices, etc. An all-star white cast and nobody said, hey! This seems wrong. British actor Ben Barnes plays Alejandro in brownface, Don (Robert De Niro) and Ellie Griffin’s (Diane Keaton) adopted son from Colombia. He has two siblings Jared (Topher Grace) and Lyla (Katherine Heigl). Alejandro is engaged to Missy (Amanda Seyfried) and her Southern-born parents are less-than-thrilled about their daughter marrying a brown guy and their future “half-beige” grandchildren – as described by Katherine Heigl’s character.

There’s a problem however, his strict catholic birth mother (Patricia Rae) from Colombia doesn’t know his adoptive parents are now divorced and she wants to attend the wedding. Alejandro thinks it’s best to lie to her and have his parents pretend to still be married as to not cause problems with him and his birth mom. The entire film is a mess from beginning to end.

ONTD, which other problematic romcoms are worth mentioning?

Mindy Kaling's 'Late Night' Premieres at Sundance, Acquired by Amazon for $13 Million


  • The Mindy Kaling written Late Night made its debut at Sundance to excellent reviews and an immediate pickup by Amazon for a record breaking $13 million dollar sale for the North American rights.

  • Kaling and Emma Thompson star in the Nisha Ganatra directed film. Thompson plays a long-running late night talk show host with slipping ratings. Her character thinks of herself as being from the old school, and hasn't caught up with the changes to the genre - which is where Kaling's character comes in.

  • Ganatra understood Kaling's references and point-of-view, and brought her own images to the table, and they clicked right away.

  • Mindy references the idea that used to permeate about women in writer's rooms as capuccino machines - "We already have one, why would we get another?" - and how that is slowly changing for the better.

ONTD Original: The Celebrity Chefs & Restaurants that fed furloughed workers




Most people know Chef Jose Andres from organizing an effort to feed Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria in 2017. What people don't know, is that Chef Andres founded World Central Kitchen (WCK) after the Haiti earthquake in 2007. He saw that after a disaster, feeding people seemed to be at the bottom of the list of priorities by those in charge. WCK is a non-profit organization that works to end hunger.

Naturally, the government shuts down and WCK & Chef Jose Andres steps up. They opened a kitchen down the street from the White House to feed furloughed workers. And then, other Chefs opened their restaurants to feed these workers (Full list of participating restaurants). Over the past few weeks, WCK has seen high profile volunteers distributing food like Congressman Joe Kennedy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Freshman Congresswoman Deb Haaland, David Hogg, Congressman Joaquin Castro, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Congressman Eric Swalwell, and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser.

James McAvoy talks to Men's Journal about a recent health scare and promotes SNL

Screenshot 2019-01-26 at 14.32.45

INTERVIEW AND PHOTOSHOOT

He almost died last April. He went in for a regular check-up, then had to do a lung biopsy and the would became seriously infected so he ended up spending three weeks in the hospital. Even after he recovered the doctors wouldn’t give him straight answers, when he told them that one of his abdominal muscles appeared to have gone missing after the surgery, they asked him: “Hmm, are you sure it was there before the surgery?” [What the fuck??]

• There have been a few major live events recently: his divorce from Anne-Marie Duff in 2016, the death of his mother in 2018 etc., and he admits that his illness really shook him up: “Don’t get me wrong, I’m not slagging off my industry. I love my job. But there’s got to be more balance.

• Balance means: more British movies (and less time away from home), possibly directing, only working with directors who possess a field marshal’s sense of what they want to achieve, never abusing his own or anybody’s else’s time. And it means, whenever possible, picking his kid up from school.

+ A casting call reveals that they're looking for a Caucasian, Latino or Asian actor who is 40 to 55 to play Deathstroke. Meanwhile Rose, otherwise known as Ravager, will be a mixed Asian or Latina actress from ages 18 to 21. Earlier this week, another casting call also teased that they were looking to hire a deaf or hard of hearing actor (21-24, Mixed Latino or Mixed Asian) to take on the role of Deathstroke's son, Joe Wilson/Jericho.
+ Titans' Slade will be former military man whose aggressive nature ripped apart his family. Slade was dismissed from the military and now is on a mission of vengeance and wealth as the mercenary Deathstroke. Rose, meanwhile, is a "strong but damaged" woman looking to put her past and the family her father destroyed behind her. Joe Wilson aka Jericho, on the other hand, is described as a misfit who’s always longed for acceptance and love, but never found it, always suffering betrayal by those he dared to believe in most.
+ Titans S2 begins filming next March.

Alan Alda On Why He'd Work With Woody Allen Again



In a recent Hollywood Reporter interview veteran actor Alan Alda, among other things, was asked how did he feel about some of the actors like Mira Sorvino (who won an Oscar for her performance in 'Mighty Aphrodite') and Colin Firth (who did yellowface in 'Magic in the Moonlight') who have expressed regret about working with Woody Allen. His answer as you can imagine was pretty much your typical bs excuse most Hollywoat actors give when confronted with that question, saying: "I'd work with him again if he wanted me. I'm not qualified to judge him. I don't know all the facts. I don't know if he's guilty or innocent. But you can be uncertain — that's what I go on. I just don't have enough information to convince me I shouldn't work with him. And he's an enormously talented guy."

‘Leaving Neverland’ Premieres; Michael Jackson Accuser Wade Robson Responds to Disbelieving Fans



This year's Sundance Film Festival saw the premiere of Dan Reed's devastating new documentary ‘Leaving Neverland’ that gives a look inside the experiences of Wade Robson and James Safechuck who allege that Michael Jackson sexually abused them during their youth. The announcement of the doc premiering at Sundance was met with criticism from the Michael Jackson estate calling it ‘tabloid character assassination’, his nephew Taj Jackson using GoFundMe to produce a documentary of his own that would exonerate Michael and of course MJ's fans who were quick to label the victims as "liars" and "opportunists".

Despite the fans' threats to organize protests during the ‘Leaving Neverland’ premiere which resulted in having Park City Police on alert, the protest was sparse and the documentary premiered as planned. After the film's premiere, Dan Reed, Wade Robson and James Safechuck showed up for a 15-minute q&a. Both Robson and Safechuck explained that they received no financial compensation for the project, and their involvement in it was inspired by the hope that it would help other victims of childhood sexual abuse. “This was really just trying to tell the story and shine light on it,” Safechuck said. “The same way, knowing that Wade went through it, if we can give other people that same connection and comfort that we’ve gone through something like this, that’s the point.” Robson added, “That was the goal of deciding to try the [legal] case route, was just looking for a platform to be able to tell the truth. … We can’t change what happened to us, and we can’t do particularly anything about stopping Michael. I mean, he’s dead, that’s gone. What happened, happened. So the feeling is, what can do with it now? How can we use this platform to tell the story? And hopefully, it helps other survivors feel less isolated, and it’s something they relate to and validates their story.”

Asked about the MJ fans who were trying to boycott the film and those involved in it, Robson said “I understand that it’s really hard for them to believe because, in a way, not that long ago, I was in the same position they were in. Even though it happened to me, I still couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that what Michael did was a bad thing up until six years ago. So I understand. We can only accept and understand something when we’re ready, and maybe we’ll never be ready. Maybe we will. So that’s their journey.”

Katy Perry to return to music this year with Zedd collaboration “365”



Rumors have been swirling over the past few days that Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, better know as Katy Perry, will be returning to music much sooner than expected. Last year, the “Roulette” singer admitted she was taking a break from music after her last studio album Witness failed to achieve similar success to previous albums. The song is a collaboration with EDM producer & DJ Zedd titled “365.”

Last year during an interview Zedd had this to say about Hudson, “I’m always relatively open about the fact that I make a lot of music with people. It doesn’t always come out. But we’ve been working. And still wanting to release a song with her. I’ve always wanted to. So if we all get lucky maybe we’ll finish a song, and it will come out.” The song will allegedly drop on February 7th but has yet to be officially confirmed by a reliable source.

Trace Cyrus Rants After Instagram Photo Of Fiancee Reported As Porn



Trace Cyrus is not pleased with his fans, he blames for reporting a racy Instagram photo of his girlfriend as a pornographic image.
He posted a photo of fiancee Taylor Lauren Sanders on Instagram, in which he appears to be grasping her by the throat while she wears only a lacy pink bra.
After complaints, the post was removed, so he re-posted it on his Instagram Stories.

Daniel Radcliffe has some choice words against Patroits' Tom Brady




While promoting something or another at the Sundance Film Festival, Daniel Radcliffe - a huge football fan - was asked who'd he be rooting for at next weekend's Super Bowl.

Radcliffe, like most of the world, are sick of the Patroits always winning so he's on the Rams, and was a fan of Brady's till that infamous locker room photo from a couple of years ago came out, where Brady had a MAGA hat in his locker. Radcliffe doesn't want Brady to retire (???) but is just sick of him fucking winning all the time.

I'd avoid the comments in the Variety tweet if I was you.
