Comes now “Cruella,” which stars wall-to-wall Emmas. Emma Stone plays two characters, plus there’s Emma Thompson.
Emma Stone: “My notation — mousy Estella and roaring Cruella — have two sides so it’s two variegated hairdos. One’s woebegone hair, one’s white. As Cruella, I took pictures of myself, which seemed narcissistic, but perfect as Cruella.“I liked wearing the PETA unfriendly Dalmatian coat, but the mind-blowing 40-foot train garbage dress, which you only imagine but don’t think you’ll overly put on and siphon overdue you on a sanitation truck?”
Emma Thompson, playing a meanspirited Anna Wintour type character, says: “Cruella is everything my weft can’t bear. But it’s nonflexible for me to have friction with Emma Stone considering we’re good friends and love each other.”
Opening the 28th, it runs two hours, 15 minutes — Cruella and unusual punishment.
Russell Crowe. Has an ex-wife plus sons Charles, 17, and Tennyson, 14, both of whom squint like him. He moreover widow a fluffy villus and flabby pounds. He’s shedding that — the whiskers and weight, not the kids — to star in a new film.

I only know Fresco by Scotto reopens first week in June. It’s now getting an uplift, face-lift, kitchen-lift. Even a newly widow outside dining zone rejuiced by party planner Larry Scott.
Psst … the ‘Password’ is: back
Civilization’s in luck. “Password” is grabbing its sixth shot. The show began in the early ’60s — surpassing America had demonstrations and presidents to alimony them entertained — so producers were then scratching for something like parlor games to rivet eyeballs onto television. It had two teams. Plain humans vs. celebs like Paul Anka, Joel Grey, Betty White, Lucille Ball. Each had to guess some secret password thing without stuff fed a one-word clue.

The United Nations plus China are upset well-nigh Israel’s “disproportionate response” versus Hamas, which fired 3,000 rockets last week. China’s occupied and colonized Tibet 70 years and the UN says nothing. What’s a proportionate response if, say, Tibet fired 3,000 rockets into Beijing?
