Georgie Henley

Mira Sorvino

Many people may off-handedly say they want to kill their mother, but the two sisters who were the subject of Toronto Star reporter Bob Mitchell’s book “The Class Project: How to Kill a Mother: The True Story of Canada’s Infamous Bathtub Girls,” well, they were pretty serious about it. The book tells the story of a pair of girls whose lives had been torturous for as long as they could remember due to the various abuses committed against them by their alcoholic mom and her string of sleazy boyfriends, so they hatched a scheme to rub mommy out and collect the insurance money. First time director Stanley M. Brooks has already got Abigail Breslin (Zombieland) and Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia) signed on to play the sisters in a film adaptation, and now Variety is reporting that Oscar winning actress Mira Sorvino has just joined the cast in the role of the abusive mother.



This week, Fat Guy Kevin Carr heads to the movie theater to enjoy the holiday releases and the award films. But how do they stack up against each other. After being swept into Narnia in post-converted 3D, Kevin takes a trip to Venice where he watches a portly Johnny Depp play an everyman to Angelina Jolie walking around a lot. Finally, he takes another award season trip to Boston to watch Mark Wahlberg get punch drunk..



I write this with all due respect to director Michael Apted, his actors, the rest of his creative team and even C.S. Lewis himself. But, really, is there anyone out there who actually cares about these Narnia movies? Was there a big clamoring for this second sequel? Would anyone’s world end if the last four books remained where they’ve probably always belonged – on bookshelves? There must be a devoted audience somewhere, as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian raked in some serious box office cash. Surely, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will surpass Tangled and the infinitely superior latest Harry Potter to own the weekend, giving Fox and Walden Media sufficient cause to dial up the next one.



This week we take our Who’s That Hottie column to a place where we really shouldn’t go: Narnia. We check in with two saucy young gals that make up the softer side of the Pevensie family.
