Welcome to summer kids!

What do you mean you thought it was already summer.

Never mind the 100+ degree temperatures we've been having, summer officially started on Tuesday.  Tuesday was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year and the official start of summer.

Of course, Hollywood's summer began sometime in late April so I can see how you'd be confused.

We are hip deep in the summer movie season.  This week's big studio offerings are Cars 2 (Animated Boogaloo?) and Bad Teacher.  I didn't want to get into any weird Pixar hentai vibe this week.  Instead, I chose to go with the Bad Teacher herself.

Please say hello to Cameron Diaz.

According to the Movie Times, Ms. Diaz is the second highest grossing actress of all time.  I'd hasten to add I think she's the second most annoying actress of all time.  You can disagree.  That's fine.  Unfortunately, I'm the one writing this.

Since bursting on the scene as Jim Carrey's love interest in 1994's The Mask, Ms. Diaz has racked up the hits.  She was one of Charlie's Angels.  She voiced Princess Fiona in the Shrek franchise.  She stalked Tom Cruise in Cameron Crowe's Vanilla Sky.  Perhaps most famously, she used Ben Stiller's man goo to style her hair in There's Something About Mary.

That's not to say she hasn't taken a few chances.  She starred opposite John Cusack in Being John Malkovich.  She was the Bridezilla in Very Bad Things.  She was in one of Ed Burns' early movies, She's the One.

She was linked to her Bad Teacher co-star Justin Timberlake, which apparently led to some awkward moments during their love scenes.  She's currently involved with New York Yankee, Alex Rodriguez, because, I guess, someone has to be.

On to the links.
