pretty woman reunion
The Today show staged an epic reunion of the cast of the beloved 1990's film "Pretty Woman" and the complete cast was brought together for the first time since filming the romantic comedy.

NBC announced the epic sit-down with a tongue-in-cheek press release which stated, "Matt Lauer sits down with actors Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo, Laura San Giacomo, and director Garry Marshall for the 25th anniversary of the movie," the network said in a news release. "To miss it would be a big mistake. Big. Huge."

Julia Roberts (Vivian Ward) and Richard Gere (Edward Lewis) met up with ...

Sidekicks Are Important On 'Monk'

8/4/2008 1:46pm EDT
When Adrian Monk is at his most vulnerable, he can be pitiful, selfish, heartbreaking, and vicious. He is also the sanest and most human, because his obsessive-compulsive traits are merely a footnote amongst the genuine fear and sorrow.

Take for example last Friday's "Monk" episode "Mr. Monk Gets Lotto Fever" when he is faced with the possible departure of his assistant Natalie. He sits with his new therapist and discusses how she will leave him, how everyone leaves him, reminding the audience of Sharona (a deeply missed presence for early "Monk" fans). Things are never simple for a c...

'Monk' Pays Tribute To Kamel, Introduces New Therapist

7/22/2008 11:08am EDT
Get out some clean wipes, fresh bottled spring water, and detective caps - "Monk" is back for a seventh season! The last time the obsessive-compulsive hero was seen, he was running from the law in an intense two-part episode where Monk was framed for murder. His "death" gave him the freedom to find the real culprit, and for the first time in years he gained a clue in the tragic murder of his wife Trudy. Whether or not the show will get to this investigation quickly or draw it out another seven years is anyone's guess, but hopefully it will be the former.

First of all, it must be known...

Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award winner Shalhoub stars as the titular obsessive-compulsive detective in a series that has cleaned up as a ratings performer at USA since its premiere in 2002 and has cultivated a lo...
