“I learned so much,” says Chriqui.

‘You Don’t Mess with the Zohan’
HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON-----CONCEDES
Apparently she was not paying attention when her husband ran for President 16 years ago.
The Democratic Party’s favorite candidate with the majority of the popular vote, Hillary Clinton failed to understand that it’s the delegates that get you a party’s nomination, not the popular majority
Whether its delegates or electorates, the public is more aware now then ever before how candidates win elections.
In her speech tomorrow, Clinton will stand by her family and call for a time of healing.
We will hear how hard we must support Obama because he has so much to do because of…, and again we will hear…, Bush.
She will tell the crowd of supporters she will continue to fight for universal healthcare and that healthcare will be her number one priority.
She will never move on from Bush.
Don’t think for a moment she is going away.
But for now she will step aside and let a man who refuses top wear a pin of the American flag on his lapel, refuses to salute the American flag, admits to using cocaine eight years ago and is the most liberal senator on Capital Hill be her party’s choice for President of the United States.
At Barrack Obama’s press conference he will talk about change, lots, and lots of change and begin his attack on John McCain and McCain on him.

Sandler’s PG-13 comedy has shot at overtaking DreamWorks Animation PG-rated panda
By Robin Rowe
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today)
Paramount is reportedly expecting a $60+ million weekend for ‘Kung Fu Panda’.
That would put it in ‘Finding Nemo’ territory ($60 million).
Despite an impressive $20 million Friday, expect ‘Kung Fu Panda’ to lose steam.
Look for a $50 million weekend like ‘Ratatouille’ ($47 million).
The ‘Kung Fu Panda’ animation is beautiful, and Po seems likable.
But, Jack Black’s pot-bellied panda is the same “decade of the zero” flabby slacker we keep encountering in films such as ‘Knocked Up’.
The loser hero is popular with critics lately.
Not so great for kids is the it’s-ok-to-be-a-glutton message and violence of ‘Kung Fu Panda’.
Columbia’s ‘You Don’t Mess with the Zohan’ is Adam Sandler’s farcical comedy about an Israeli commando who fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream of being a hairdresser in New York City.
‘Entourage’ hottie co-star Emmanuelle Chriqui looks great on screen and was “a presence” on the set, according to Sandler.
Look for an opening weekend of $45 million, coming close to ‘Kung Fu Panda’. Sandler’s ‘Anger Management’ opened at $42 million.
Paramount’s ‘Indiana Jones’ continues to dominate theater counts in its third week.
Last week it drew $45 million to bring its take to $215 million.
Look for ‘Indiana Jones’ to add another $20 million this weekend.
New Line’s ‘Sex and the City’ surprised many last weekend with it’s $57 million opening, tracking very strongly with female audiences of all ages.
Look for ‘Sex and the City’ to add another $30 million this weekenD
Rogue Pictures’ Liv Tyler slasher, ‘The Strangers’, did a better than expected opening last week with $21 million.
Being poorly lit apparently didn’t hurt this horror film, as Liv Tyler fans flocked to see her first picture in years.
The big openings next week are Universal’s ‘The Incredible Hulk’ and Fox’s ‘The Happening’.
Lee Angst’s ‘Hulk’ in 2003 opened at $62 million, before retreating to a domestic total of $132 million.
‘The Incredible Hulk’ 2008 stars Ed Norton, Liv Tyler and Tim Roth.
Fox’s R-rated thriller ‘The Happening’ stars Mark Wahlberg.
