Things to Do


Flashback brings you up to speed with the buzz and latest news on all things arts and entertainment you may have missed during the weekend.

Michael Cera is just as awkward and shy as you’d expect him to be . . .

. . . But his awkward charm, coupled with the lovely looks of Kat Dennings, wasn’t enough to place Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, at the top of the movie box office. That place belongs to (we can’t believe we’re typing this) . . . Beverly Hills Chihuaha.
Bill Maher and Borat director Larry Charles’s take on Jesus. (Most) people cheer!

Tina Fey once again reprised her role as Sarah Palin for a Saturday Night Live skit. Our favorite moment? When Queen Latifah, playing debate moderator Gwen Ifill, asks Palin if she’d extend equal rights to gay couples, the latter deadpans, “I would be afraid of where that would lead. I believe marriage is meant to be a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers.” Ouch!

Kevin Spacey has said he’ll once again play Lex Luthor in a sequel to 2006’s tepid Superman Returns. It’s still unclear whether Brandon Routh, Kate Bosworth, and director Bryan Singer will also be back for a second film.
