Muddling through the monologue, diarrhea jokes with Danica Patrick, singing an “Endless Love” duet with Reign Over Me co-star Don Cheadle – all should provide a nice little opening weekend bump for Mr. Barry Egan.

— And if you’ve missed the tales of I Heart Huckabees director David O. Russell’s epic showdowns with Lily Tomlin, these videos (via Gawker) are both absolute must sees. Russell’s frothing, desk clearing tirade, and Tomlin’s F bombs directed at (an off-screen) Russell, Dustin Hoffman, and any motherfucker in the vicinity – time to Netflix queue up Huckabees with the newfound insight on why it was such a complete mess.
