Yo, parking attendant. "How long you gonna be here?" queries the uniformed young man in the Mann's Chinese parking lot, preparing to write me a stub. "Um, uh, about 12 hours," I reply tentatively, a hint of shame in my voice, even as my firm look no doubt tells him: Yes, I am going to sit through all five "Rocky" movies in a row of my own free will, and what of it , punk? It is the ultimate exercise in superfluousness.

In the late 1920s, a USC football player named Marion Morrison was hired as a prop man on a John Ford movie at the old Fox lot on Western Avenue. This was common practice for the studios in those days when USC football was the only big-time game in town and Hollywood was only too happy to help out with the recruiting by providing (legal but lucky for the coaches) jobs for star players. Marion Mitchell Morrison's football career ended with a broken leg on the practice field.

The thought of "Rocky V" may leave some moviegoers feeling pummeled, pounded and downright punchy. But if it's easy to take jabs at the Rocky series--and the critics have dealt plenty of kidney punches--there is no denying the series' popularity. Consider: the total worldwide purse tops $762 million. Fans have made star/creator Sylvester Stallone a household name, and the films have launched the careers of a trio of athletic actors who've portrayed his opponents.

An ex-fighter filed a $600,000-plus plagiarism suit Tuesday against Sylvester Stallone, accusing him of stealing the story of his controversial boxing career for the upcoming "Rocky V" movie. The suit filed in U.S. District Court on behalf of Joey Barnum said the "Rocky V" script represents an episode in the life of Barnum, a 1940s-era prizefighter who was the No. 3 contender in the lightweight division.

The California Lottery is hoping to milk a cash cow named Spot for about $58 million. Spot is the comely Holstein on the lottery's new scratcher ticket, Moo-La Mania. For $1 a pop, bettors rub off miniature milk bottles to spell out C-O-W and win from $2 to $10,000. But she is no common pasture variety cow. Spot's a very California cow, peering through mirror sunglasses and munching dollar bills.
