Perez Reviews: If/Then

If Idina Menzel were not so super talented, then If/Then would be such a Debbie Downer of a show - more so than it already is!

Unfortunately, this is no Wicked or Rent.

If/Then fails to serve the greatness that is its leading lady and her big Broadway return in 10 years is dampened by a show that is underwhelming at best and laborious throughout.

The whole concept of the show, a musical ripoff of the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors, does a disservice to the material and actors. If/Then would have worked A LOT better as a musical comedy! The show is a dramatic musical, but you're not very invested in the characters because you don't have time to be. The action is split into two alternating stories that explore the different consequences Idina's character would have been faced with if she made different decisions in her life.

Brian Yorkey's book literally made us groan repeatedly. There were so many moments we wanted to pull our hair out throughout the show, but then - thankfully - Idina would sing and all would be temporarily better.

Note to Mr. Yorkey: cursing repeatedly does not make your show "cool" or "edgy".

And even worse and more distracting than the book was the choreography by Larry Keigwin. It is just embarrassingly cheesy and bad!

Sigh.

THANKFULLY, though, there are some real standout performances. James Snyder brings so much warmth to his role as the love interest that you can't help but fall in love with him. And LaChanze brings so much humor and personality to her role as the best friend that she almost steals the
show!

Annmarie Milazzo did a FANTASTIC job with the vocal arrangements and she must be applauded for truly giving the audience what they want - to hear Idina sing and really show off that big and iconic voice of hers!

Menzel is at the top of her game vocally, and despite the show itself being lackluster, she will still likely get a Tony nomination!

Hopefully next in line for her… Menzel with a Z! Or something like that!

A Menzel one-woman show would have a lot more appeal and would be such a universally loved hit!

Do it! Do it! Do it!

Kate Gosselin's Cookbook Love Is In The Mix DESTROYED By Online Reviewers

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness BlitzBookzKate Gosselin

kate gosselin cookbook reviews

At 38 years old, Kate Gosselin decided that she wasn't going to try and make a living through television anymore, and instead she thought she'd try writing about something she loves — so she wrote a cookbook!

She took that cookbook to a publisher, who agreed that it was a good idea, and now the book is available in many places, including Amazon.

Success, right?

Well… no, not exactly! If the online reviews have any weight on whether or not something is going to be a hit, then we're seriously worried about Kate's latest profession!

The new cookbook is called Love Is In The Mix, and it was released in September. Here's some of what people are saying about it (ouch!):

Watermelon Oreos Sound Awful Despite Positive Reviews!

oreo watermelon flavor cookie business decision

Oreo simply does not give a flying fuzz whether or not a new flavor of theirs sounds disgusting — they're going to go ahead with it anyway, and still spend money on making it available!

Last year it was the Candy Corn Oreo that had everyone dry heaving after just thinking about it, and now it's the bizarre WATERMELON flavor that has everyone reaching for a trash can instead of their wallets… even though the reviews coming in have been mostly positive!

Megan Fox's Boobs Make An Appearance In This Is 40's Blooper Reel!

Filed under: Film FlickersSilly!Megan FoxPaul Rudd

This Is 40 got suuuuuper mixed reviews.

That's okay, because at least not all of them were bad, right? Right!

Either way, when you get a hilarious cast like that together (we will forever have a huge crush on Paul Rudd), you're bound to get some hilarious gold. It's just too bad it all wound up in the blooper reel (above)…

… which is absolutely a riot! LOLz!

We kinda wish they'd start making entire movies out of blooper reels. It'd be super weird, but we'd probably puke from laughing so hard! Ha!

Check it out — either way, you get a glimpse of Megan Fox's boobiez!

Lindsay Lohan's The Canyons Director Too Scared To Release Film??

Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm Flickers

Lindsay Lohan Canyons Director Movie Release Delayed

In old westerns, outlaws always seem to hide out in the canyons. Well, this time it's The Canyons that are hiding!

After the Lindsay Lohan indie film didn't get accepted into the Sundance Film Festival, director Paul Schrader is rethinking the film's release.

And it's looking like we may not get to see Lindsay's canyons for quite some time. Paul says:

Critics Wish The Spice Girls' Viva Forever! Would Just END Already!

critics-slam-spice-girls-musical-viva-forever

Yeesh! Maybe Victoria Beckham showed up late on the red carpet because she knew what was coming!

And believe us, it DOES NOT sound good!

The much-hyped new musical, Viva Forever!, which is based around the music of our beloved Spice Girls, premiered last night in London, and while critics were delighted to once again see Posh, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, and Geri Halliwell all together once again…that was about it!

The show has been absolutely torn to SHREDS in pretty much every review released so far!

Here are some HIGHlights:

Katie Holmes Bad Reviews Dead Accounts

Katie Holmes might have escaped Scientology, but one thing she can never manage to run from are the critics!

Mz. Holmes recently made her return to Broadway, with the opening of Dead Accounts just last week!

However, it seems the actress is getting less than AH-Mazing reviews for her performance in the play… and it’s really taking a toll on her!

An insider revealed:
