The Approval Matrix: Week of October 1, 2007

Dane Cook's Movie

Plot Outline for "Good Luck Chuck": In order to keep the woman of his dreams from falling for another guy, Charlie Logan (Dane Cook) has to break the curse that has made him wildly popular with single women: Sleep with Charlie once, and the next man you meet will be your true love. (IMDb)

Kyle Smith of the New York Post said, "The sex jokes, all of them clammy and stale, are reminiscent not of Wedding Crashers but of an Eighth Avenue peep-show booth in 1979."

The movie received a Critics Tomatometer score of 3%.

Billy Walsh in "Tell Me You Love Me"

Jamie, trapped in a lease for an apartment she won't be sharing with Hugo, hangs out with Mason, smoking pot. Mason suggests having sex with someone to get over her engagement, "just like a hangover." Jamie calls a handful of past hookups, eventually ending up at Marcus's (Billy Walsh (Rhys Coiro) from "Entourage!") apartment after work. But, after a few minutes of making out, she can't go through with it and takes off, leaving another angry voicemail for Hugo on her way home. [Marcus immediately calls someone else when she leaves.] (HBO)

Ryan McGee of Zap2It described the scene as, “…awkward almost-sex…”

Heidi and Spencer's "Body Language"

Pop Dirt reported that Heidi Montag's fiance and manager Spencer Pratt spoke with People magazine about the leaked release of 'Body Language' on KIIS FM in Los Angeles on Thursday, and how 'The Hills' star is not happy about its release.

"We did it as a joke," Pratt explained. "It's not her single at all. It was never meant to be heard by anyone but us. Over my dead body would I rap on Heidi's first single. Heidi is so upset because this was not the first sound she wanted people to hear from her."

White Stripes

The White Stripes have canceled all remaining tour dates through the end of the year, including fall dates in Britain.

"They thank you for your understanding and well wishes," said a posting on the duo's Web site.

Singer-guitarist Jack White and drummer Meg White had previously canceled their September shows, saying "Meg White is suffering from acute anxiety and is unable to travel at this time."

Spokeswoman Chloe Walsh, in an e-mail Tuesday to The Associated Press, said she had no further comment on the tour cancellation and White's illness. (CNN)

Manilow vs. Hasselbeck

Barry Manilow pulled out of his scheduled appearance on "The View," because he strongly disagrees with host Elisabeth Hasselbeck's conservative views. In an exclusive statement to TMZ, Barry says,

"I strongly disagree with her views. I think she's dangerous and offensive. I will not be on the same stage as her." Barry, taking a stand!

Barry released the following statement to E! News:

"I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be on "The View" tomorrow as scheduled. I had made a request that I be interviewed by Joy, Barbara or Whoopi but not Elisabeth Hasselback. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to accommodate this simple request, so I bowed out."
