Jonah and Justin, penitent together . . . If you're Jonah Hill , you might be wishin' you'd kept your burrito chute zipped. Irritated by a pair o' paparazzis dogging him 'round L.A. and commenting on his fetching floral-print shorts, Jonah invited one to perform an intimate act. It was, it says here, "a homophobic slur," and Jonah, a vociferous supporter of gay rights, went on both Howard Stern 's show and Jimmy Fallon 's Tonight Show...

Lately Jonah Hill, the potty-mouthed teddy bear of Superbad , resembles a stuffed animal that's lost its stuffing and gained muscle tone. Did Hill shed those pounds by running the bases on the set of Moneyball ? In the movie that opened Friday he is Peter Brand, statistics wonk, a composite of all the real-life wonks who helped Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) spot baseball players with high on-base percentages and low salaries. Baseball, however, is not responsible for Hill's newly slim silhouette.

IN "THE SITTER," Jonah Hill and David Gordon Green deliver a massively raunchy update of the B-movie miniclassic "Adventures in Baby Sitting. " "Sitter" is, from its bawdy opening sequence (watch out, Mom and Dad), a decidedly more vulgar movie, but I wouldn't say funnier. Hill plays a college dropout who, against his will, ends up sitting for a neighbor's three kids. The laughs are built around the idea that Hill's shiftless, irresponsible character is completely ill-suited for the task at hand.

"Cyrus" takes its name from one of its characters, a stay-at-home-with-mom twentysomething played by Jonah Hill. The set-up would seem to be topical - the lousy economy has kept many post-grads at home, saving on rent, sharing the car, getting a free meal and laundry. But Cyrus - who's backstory is intentionally left blank - seems to be something more complicated. He's a socially awkward hermit, friendless, needy, incredibly jealous of his single mother's attention, which causes problems when mom (Marisa Tomei)

In "Get Him to the Greek," Russell Brand reprises his role as the wild-maned and out-of-control rock star from "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (a movie I'd like to forget). This time out, hilarity ensues when the easily-flummoxed Jonah Hill is charged with getting Brand's character - you guessed it - to the Greek Theater in L.A. But the poster works. Really. I know exactly that this movie's about and why I want to see it. It's also clearly the modern version of "My Favorite Year," a great movie with Peter O'Toole, whose larger-than-life character imparts a lifetime of wisdom to his much-younger handler.

FINDING THE biggest loser in the airplane-hoax dust-up between Kenneth W. Smith and Christopher Shell is difficult, but we're going to have to go with the poor woman who had the bad taste to hook up with both of them. First, our beleagured bachelorette dates and dumps Shell, who posts a Facebook photo of his ex, described by an attorney as "the kind of photo that would incense a boyfriend. " (Lesson one: Do not let your loser boyfriend take compromising pictures of you.) Smith allegedly retaliates by falsely accusing Shell of bringing a bomb on an airplane.

Superbad is a high school comedy that takes place over 24 hours during that most anxious of seasons, post-college acceptance but pre-graduation. Intermittently hilarious if also interminable, the film is about guys who get sloppy drunk one night and, on the morning after, see the errors of excess. What distinguishes Superbad, produced by Judd Apatow (Knocked Up), from most other teen comedies about backward boys trying to be sexually forward is that instead of losing their virginity, they gain emotional maturity.

THE "JUMP STREET" movie franchise - there's a phrase you'd never thought you'd hear - is an inverted-energy dynamo that somehow runs on the power of low expectations. The 2012 "original" was the unclamored-for adaptation of a '90s Fox show whose own star (Johnny Depp) moved to France so he wouldn't have to see any reruns. The proposition was so dubious that it gave reboot writer-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller a genius idea - let's make the movie's absurd existence the actual subject of the film.

THE WEATHER is beautiful and so are the celebs who are busy with new, highly-anticipated projects (We're talking to YOU, Lupita and Lady Brienne), sharing painful revelations and apologizing for talking too darn much. Welcome to Celebrityville. Friday Jennifer Lopez and her boytoy Casper Smart are officially done-zo after two years together, TMZ.com reported. They reportedly split two months ago, but decided to keep it quiet. Before the reports surfaced, Smart had responded to claims that he had flirted with transgender model Sofie Vissa behind J.Lo's back, insisting on his Instagram page that the story is "nasty.

A LITTLE hard news from Tattle: After throwing a first pitch that would have shamed an uncoordinated toddler, 50 Cent (a/k/a Curtis Jackson) revealed in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" the reason for his horrible toss. "I have a skeletal muscle injury on my left shoulder from excessive masturbation. " Maybe instead of pitching, 50 Cent should try batting practice. He obviously has a nice stroke. * The Los Angeles Times reports that 50 Cent will accept bitcoin for his newest album, "Animal Ambition.

IF ONLY Tattle could be this adept at predicting the stock market. Yesterday's final item, dealing with the Las Vegas marriage of Francesca Eastwood ( Clint 's daughter) and Jordan Feldstein ( Jonah Hill 's brother) ended with "Tattle will be surprised if this one lasts a year. " Well . . . make that a week. TMZ.com reports that 20-year-old Francesca is reportedly looking to get the marriage annulled. Francesca and music manager Jordan, 35, who looks a little like Jonah before he lost all the weight, reportedly had a booze-fueled "wild night in Vegas," which ended up at a chapel with an Elvis impersonator, according to Us Weekly . Francesca, however, says that she doesn't drink, a denial, which, if true, makes her decision-making even more questionable.

"THANKS FOR Sharing" has been described as an exploration of society's problem with sex addiction and pornography, but that casts too narrow a net. Josh Gad's character, for instance, doggy-rubs women on the subway, and uses homemade recording devices to photograph the undercarriages of his female co-workers. This is invasive, public sexual assault, and suggests he has issues that transcend addiction, and require the immediate intervention of law enforcement. It's also not funny, although "Sharing" seems to think so. Thus "Sharing" has hired Gad, the roly-poly guy you hire when you can't get Jonah Hill or Jack Black, and positioned his grotesque activities as the sort of incorrigible behavior Hill might outgrow during an Apatow comedy.

  Alien invasion? Zombie attack? A massive, catastrophic earthquake? Nope, in This Is the End it really is the end - an old-fashioned, New Testament apocalypse, straight out of the Book of Revelation and happening right now, in plain sight of the Hollywood sign. But not to worry. "Who do they rescue first?" asks Jonah Hill, the Oscar-nominated thespian, trying to reassure his fellow real-life movie, TV, and music biz stars, all of whom have flocked to James Franco's new million-dollar digs for an unfortunately timed housewarming party.

C HARLES BARKLEY may be turning 50 Wednesday, but he doesn't foresee any midlife crisis. "I don't even know what that is. I've heard about it, technically," the Round Mound of Rebound told me. "My life, if you want to talk about fairy tales, mine's it. " Barkley's one plan: Be more reflective in the future. That goal starts tonight as Barkley looks back on his life in a Comcast Sportsnet special at 7 p.m., called "Barkley at 50. " Barkley will be joined by CSN's Neil Hartman and Jim Lynam , Barkley's former coach, who traded him out of Philly in '92. Barkley doesn't usually celebrate his b-day, but he did share one birthday buddy during his NBA heyday: Michael Jordan , who also recently turned 50. "He's three days older than me," Barkley said.

"SideShow" favorite Kenneth Branagh , who a lot of people think is royalty, he's played royals so often, was knighted Friday by Queen Elizabeth II at a dump called Buckingham Palace. Born in Belfast, he's eligible, you see. He's chuffed it happened in this, the year of the queen's Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics: "It's been a hell of a year for the U.K. and I feel very honored to be a tiny part of it. " He got it for his charity work, not his acting. Maybe Elizabeth can give him another!
