Jamie McCourt wants nearly $1 million per month in temporary support from her estranged husband, an amount disclosed in a court filing in which her lawyers allege Frank McCourt has engaged in a "carefully calculated subterfuge designed to mislead the court" about his financial resources. The filing, unsealed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, includes details of how Frank McCourt hopes to transform the Dodgers from a baseball team into the anchor of a sports business empire that could include cable television channels broadcast in English and Spanish; homes, shops and a football stadium within the Dodger Stadium parking lots; and the purchase of a soccer club in China and another in the English Premier League.

After the box-office success of their comedy "Ride Along," Kevin Hart and director Tim Story are saddling up again. Hart is in talks to reunite with Story as well as team up with Jamie Foxx in the hitman movie "Black Phantom," according to a Variety report. The new movie would tell the tale of "a double-crossed mob hitman who enlists the help of the Black Phantom, the same African-American hitman who had been sent to kill him," the report says .  Hart might be the busiest buddy in Hollywood, still riding high from the $130-million cop comedy "Ride Along" and having earned kudos from critics for stealing scenes in the rom-com "About Last Night.

Those honors belong to the youngest of the four Morris brothers, Jamie, according to Mike, a standout sprinter, who ran in the 60-yard dash in the Millrose Games Friday night at Madison Square Garden, provided a sprained right knee does not sideline him.

As a May 24 trial date was set to determine who owns the Dodgers, the lawyer for Jamie McCourt called into question Frank McCourt's bookkeeping and promised "bombshell" allegations against him. "Mr. McCourt is not spending all of his income on his family and on the team," attorney Dennis Wasser said at Tuesday's hearing. Wasser declined to elaborate, other than to say he intends to present those allegations to debunk McCourt's claims that he is low on cash. Wasser opened his statement by saying that Frank McCourt had contracted RAIDS: "recently acquired income deficiency syndrome."

Frank McCourt took the witness stand in his divorce trial Tuesday, a day on which the most riveting testimony shed light on the collapse of a marriage that lasted nearly 30 years. McCourt considered for months whether to sign a document that would have granted shared ownership of the Dodgers to his wife, Jamie. He said no on May 12, 2009, and later that day Jamie sent an e-mail to Leah Bishop, the attorney who had drafted the proposed document. Bishop's response: "You have only two tools at your disposal — a civil conversation with Frank or a nuclear bomb.

PARK CITY, Utah -- Michael Cera has embarked on some pretty quirky adventures in recent years - “Paper Heart,” or the collected canon of George Michael Bluth. But he's up for some serious noodling in “Crystal Fairy,” a new road trip dramatic comedy that helped open the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday night and is told in a mix of English and Spanish. (Cera speaks mostly the former.) For one thing, the film was shot in Chile, over a period of 12 days, with nothing close to a script.

It was his third victory in his last 14 starts on the PGA Tour and he had the lead heading into the final round in all three. “To go wire to wire in a field like this means a lot,” said Reed, who started the day with a two-shot lead and shot an even-par 72 to win by one shot over Jamie Donaldson and Bubba Watson.

SOCHI, Russia - The team that bulldozed its way through the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament while averaging five goals a game exited the semifinals meekly, unable to score once. Team USA's speed was neutralized and its in-your-face attitude pushed right back in its own face by Canada, which had been pushed to the brink by Latvia - Latvia? - in the quarterfinals and has been subjected to daily roastings from armchair critics back home. In a dramatic turnaround, Canada raised its game to an art Friday.

SOCHI, Russia -- It was a gold-medal sweep for U.S. snowboarders in the slopestyle event this weekend at the Winter Olympics. Whereas Sage Kotsenburg's trip to the top of the podium was unexpected, Jamie Anderson was one of the favorites on the women's side in the newly minted Olympic sport. Still, it was anything but straightforward at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park on Sunday afternoon. Anderson pulled it out late, in stirring fashion, putting down a 95.25 score on her second and final run. Enni Rukajarvi of Finland took the silver (92.50)

Call it a tale of two sides of the capitalist system: JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s Jamie Dimon got $20 million for being CEO in 2013; each Oakland Raiderette got $1,250 for kicking up her heels in the same year. The Raiderettes are suing ; presumably, Dimon is smiling - all the way to the bank. True, the Raiders had another lousy year in 2013, though I'm not sure how much blame can be put on the cheerleaders. But as Forbes' Halah Touryalai wrote about our banker friend : “Despite what was arguably the bank's worst year under Dimon's reign, JPM's board is awarding the CEO a 74% raise which includes over $18 million in restricted stock.” Or, to quote a Raiderette: “Sis, boom, boooooooo.” It isn't fair.

If ever there were a movie betting on the idea that sex sells it is "Friends With Benefits," emphasis on the "benefits. " The naked truth? Slipping a buff Justin Timberlake and a toned Mila Kunis between the sheets as the naughty but nice romantic pair turns the heat up considerably in this happily never after tale. And yet, even with all their huffing and puffing, this very salty, often funny affair is never quite as satisfying as it should be. There was certainly the prospect of pleasure with Will Gluck in the director's chair.

"Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus" is an amusing booze-and-drug-fueled road trip, its travelers on a quest to experience the Holy Grail of highs. Starring Michael Cera, Gaby Hoffmann and a trio of irresistibly charming Chilean brothers, the search for a slice of the famed San Pedro cactus with legendary hallucinogenic powers takes us through northern Chile's corner of the Atacama Desert. Scenic, short and slight, the film manages to avoid the tendency to make these sort of big-screen excursions more tedious than actual road trips.
