"GETAWAY" takes place in Sofia, Bulgaria, where apparently life is cheap, and automobiles even cheaper. The filmmakers crash a couple hundred cars to tell the story of a former race car driver (Ethan Hawke) blackmailed into driving a hot rod around the city, leading police on a wild Mustang chase. The movie has the happily idiotic plot of a summer B movie. And if "Getaway" had been satisfied to wow us with its prodigiously high auto body count, surely a modern record, that would have been fine.

While Octomom Nadya Suleman's money woes continue, she's decided to try online dating. TMZ.com reports that Octo has created an online dating profile for WhatsYourPrice.com, a site where users (formerly called johns) can pay other users to go out with them.

The much-lusted-after stars of the Twilight film franchise have yo-yo'd us all since 2008: Were they together? Apart? Was it all a dream? Then, last summer, K-Stew got naughty with director Rupert Sanders , R-Patt got hurt, and they split.

Diaz: Monogamy's for the birds Prospective Cameron Diaz mates may want to pay close attention to the Charlie's Angels angel's chat with InStyle. "I don't know if anyone is really naturally monogamous," Diaz, 41, tells the mag. "We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it's been ingrained in us to do these things. " Diaz, whose dating portfolio includes Matt Dillon , Jared Leto , Justin Timberlake , and Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez , says people chase after monogamy "because they've been told, 'This equals happiness.' " Instead, we end up with a big bowl of misery.
