Movies & TV links: Put down the auto-tune Trebek!

Posted By on Thu, Jun 24, 2010 at 1:19 PM

» “Only in my dreams have I been able to have a catfight with Debbie Gibson…until now! This is soo MEGA cool!” said ’80s pop star Tiffany in a statement quoted on the New York Times' Arts Beat blog, where Dave Itzkoff reports that the two ’80s icons will co-star in the porny-sounding SyFy channel TV movie Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.

» New York Mag's Vulture blog notes that there is most definitely a difference between good and crap auto-tune, as showcased on last night's "Jeopardy!" in one of the show's — and Trebek's — most awkward moments. (And that's saying something). Vulture's also got one of the most frightening displays of photoshop we've ever seen.

» And holy cow wow are folks talking about Bristol Palin's upcoming cameo on the "Secret Life of the American Teenager," that Lifetime show where pregnancy's just something that happens these days after lunch and before football games. Wonkette's posted a clip Palin's performance, which is so creepy and monotone, you'd think she had some freakish, bad-analogy-making robo-mom or something. Full episode airs July 5 if you can take it.

» The Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz spy-shoot-’em-up-romantic-comedy-thriller-blockbuster Knight & Day opened yesterday to mixed reviews. While CL's Curt Holman found the flick passable, NYT critic A.O. Scott basically gives the film the finger in a review that will remind you why sarcasm is fun.
