Us Weekend Guide: Khloe Kardashian Calls Scott Disick a "Deadbeat" on TV
Fear not, reality TV junkies! Keeping Up With the Kardashians is back for its fourth season starting this weekend, and the catfights and shenanigans of TV's shallowest family are just as compelling as usual.
Even Kardashian bashers will soak up the drama that surrounds sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney in the hour-long opener, which premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. on E!. A sampling: Lovelorn Kim laments, "I feel like the world is over!" while new bride Khloe calls Kourtney's baby daddy, Scott Disick, a "deadbeat."
If you're not in the mood for a reality TV binge this weekend, check out the film adaptation of Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones. Us' film critic Thelma Adams praises the redemptive Mark Wahlberg-Rachel Weisz drama for staying true to the book that bears its name, calling the tale of a murdered teen (Saoirse Ronan) "harrowing and well-acted."
One flick to skip? The disappointing Invictus, which hits theaters on Friday.
Morgan Freeman steps into the role of former South African president Nelson Mandela and while he offers a compassionate portrayal, the film doesn't live up to the true story that inspired it. In the flick, Freeman's Mandela works with a privileged white rugby captain (Matt Damon) to integrate the country in time for the 1995 World Cup. The film's downfall comes, says Us' Adams, when the drama tries to push themes of unity as if it were teaching the ABC's to a kindergarten class.
