The world is watching the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson‘s personal physician, Conrad Murray. It’s off to an emotional start as the case built against the doctor is being presented. As Murray awaits his fate, we’d like to ask who is really at fault here? Clearly, it’s doctors from movies.

Yes, he did give his patient dangerous drugs. Whether he realized the harm they would cause is beside the point, because Conrad Murray could easily be considered a victim too. A victim of Hollywood’s depiction of doctors. With role models like these, it’s no wonder he turned out negligent.

Dr. Evil

You can’t make an accurate list of evil doctors without including Dr. Evil. Turns out that it’s not an unfortunate name, as Evil has been the brains behind several plots to take over the world and extort its governments. Although, he can’t really be blamed for his evil leanings. He was raised by the Dutch after all.

Dr. Christian Szell

As a former SS dentist at Auschwitz, Dr. Christian Szell uses pain as his paintbrush. That and he looks slightly like a giant sea turtle. But back to the pain thing. A skilled interrogator, Szell drills Dustin Hoffman‘s teeth without anesthetic in Marathon Man while repeatedly asking his confused captive, “Is it safe?” Years later, Hoffman would go on to make Meet The Fockers. When will his suffering end?

Dr. Giggles

Easily dismissed due to his persistent giggle and gimmicky methods of killing victims with over-sized medical tools like giant needles, thermometers, Band-Aids, and blood-pressure arm bands, Dr. Giggle gets a bad rap. He’s perhaps the most insane doctor on this list and therefore one of the most dangerous. In one night, his house-calls severely cut down and entire town’s population. I can’t think of any other time where it was so easy to see a doctor.

Wilson, Martin, And Black Have Birdemic In ‘The Big Year’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/wilson-martin-and-black-have-birdemic-in-the-big-year/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/wilson-martin-and-black-have-birdemic-in-the-big-year/#comments Wed, 07 Sep 2011 13:57:35 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=227312 Surprisingly, it's not a Wes Anderson movie.

The casting of Owen Wilson, Steve Martin, and Jack Black against the backdrop of competitive bird watching had me excited to check out the trailer for The Big Year. But only because I assumed it was a new Wes Anderson film. But then I saw the fat one fall down and realized my mistake. The Big Year is actually the latest from Th Devil Wears Prada director, David Frankel, and follows three men in various states of crises as they take a year off in search of birds… and perhaps, themselves.

I would like to do the same but instead of birds, I’d go in search of McRib.

‘¡Three Amigos!’ Ride Again! http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/%c2%a1three-amigos-ride-again/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/%c2%a1three-amigos-ride-again/#comments Fri, 29 Apr 2011 19:34:46 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Gallery&p=209753 But not for any kind of film project. At least not until Judd Apatow decides he wants to reboot.

Recently, Empire got John Landis, Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chevy Chase together in one room to reconfirm that Chevy Chase remains the tallest. Outcome: he does!

While there, they also figured they may as well have a ¡Three Amigos! mini-reunion. Look how old everyone got!! Look how Steve Martin looks exactly the same!! And why is John Landis posing with his arms on his chest like that? That’s the position I imagine Martin Landau sleeps in.

‘Apes’ Will Muscle-In On Your Thanksgiving http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/apes-will-muscle-in-on-your-thanksgiving/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/apes-will-muscle-in-on-your-thanksgiving/#comments Sat, 15 Jan 2011 02:19:09 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17034 Fox Studios is switching up 'Apes' and 'Penguins.' Scheduling movies sounds like running a damn, dirty zoo.

Fox is switching up Apes and Penguins. No, that’s not a line from Madagascar 4: Mo’ Monkeys, Mo’ Problems. It’s Twentieth Century Fox switching around their 2011 schedule of movie releases.

The studio’s Planet of the Apes origin story, Rise of the Apes, is moving from June 24th to November 23rd. That makes sense, because Thanksgiving reminds us about how we took over this land from the Native Americans, so it makes karmic sense that we’d see a movie about apes taking over the world from us. Shame us with a big screen analogy, Fox!

Meanwhile, Fox must have a lot of faith in the Jim Carrey comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins. They’re moving it from August 12th (the Baltic Avenue of summer movie spots) to June 17th (pure Boardwalk, baby). Let’s hope Carry’s penguins don’t… slip up!

Do you get that joke? It’s a joke about penguins being slippery.

Other notable mentions from Fox’s new calendar:

- The Sitter, a new “R”-rated Jonah Hill comedy, gets bumped from July 15th to August 5th. (Ouch.)

- What’s Your Number?, a new “R”-rated Anna Faris comedy, got moved from April 29th to September 30th. (Meee-ouch!)

- The Big Year, starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson as bird-watchers, officially has my attention starting Oct. 15th. (Deadline)

Steve Martin & Alec Baldwin To Co-Host The Oscars http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/steve-martin-alec-baldwin-to-co-host-the-oscars/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/steve-martin-alec-baldwin-to-co-host-the-oscars/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This morning Variety reports that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will be double-teaming the 82nd Academy Awards. Oscar co-producers Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman didn't waste much time in snagging the duo as we told you yesterday that Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr. had turned down the offer to co-host. Martin has the experience of both hosting and having had worked with Shankman in the past on Bringing Down the House. Sounds like two pretty solid hosts but oh, how we do wish that Baldwin were splitting hosting duties with Tracy Morgan.BALDWIN: "Are you excited to be here tonight, Tracy?"MORGAN: "I'm gonna get Oscar pregnant!"BALDWIN: "Ha ha. Now Tracy, stick to the script."MORGAN: "Sure thing, Alec B.. (long pause) I wanna break Helen Mirren's water!!"
