Our Favorite High School Movies

September 18th, 2008 10:00am EDT
The Breakfast Club
Perhaps you've heard about "Assassination of a High School President," the Bruce Willis/Mischa Barton movie that darkly satirizes high school politics. While much of the high school set is eagerly anticipating the film's theatrical release in early 2009, early reviews from its January screening at Sundance have been mixed. MTV has praised it as a cross between "Rushmore" and "The Usual Suspects," while Variety labeled it an "uninventive," "muddled parody." Only time will tell if the movie becomes an instant classic or ends up in the bargain DVD bin next to "Encino Man."

There has been...

Nothing is a secret when Gossip Girl is around. With all her little pre-teen minions running around Manhattan snapping photos, she definitely has all the help she can get in delving into the secrets of New York's elite. This, of course, includes favorite 'it' couple, lonely boy Dan (Penn Badgley) and Serena (Blake Lively) who still haven't seemed to make their relationship official, again.

Gossip Girl keeps nothing to herself for long and posts a picture of the two lip-locked, letting everyone know that they are, in fact, together. This leads to nothing but scrutiny from family and fr...

Character Additions That Nearly Ruined A TV Show (Or Did)

June 10th, 2008 8:45am EDT
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
It's been said that a TV show is only as good as the characters that occupy it. During the first season of series, the writers introduce us to certain main characters that the show is going to revolve around. Once a season ends and a new one is about to start all bets are off because the writers don't want to see the ratings drop.

Their solution? Bring in new characters.

Whether they were added in advance or brought on spontaneously, new characters are added in hopes of appealing to an even bigger audience and to increase a particular show's ratings. This doesn't always turn out ...

Celebrity Fashion Review: Summer Calling

Emmanuelle Chriqui
It is officially summer time. What a better season for celebrities to expose more skin than usual? Hold on, we take that back. Celebrities are always showing off skin. It's a 365 day job; however, while some are willing to show off their assets others are not always as keen. Or, if they do show off anything, it would have been best if they hadn't at all.

Summer Dos

At the 2008 World Ocean Day event on June 4, Amber Valletta was all legs in a simple black pencil skirt with a head turning side split. We love how she kept it feminine with a lovely lace deep v-neckline top. Ke...

Though it may currently be trendy, Kermit the Frog said it best: It ain't easy being green. Committing to be more conscious environmentally takes sacrifice, dedication and consistency. We should all stop a moment - April 22 is as good a day as any - and examine our lifestyles and what changes, ...

What Are Your Favorite TV Bloopers?

Bloopers. We all laugh at them. Sometimes we can't help but watch closely for them. Some bloopers are harder to notice, but we still spot them. Here is a sampling of some great TV bloopers.

Gilmore Girls

During the first season viewers hear Lane (Keiko Agena) talking about her parents, but we never meet her father. In one episode, after Lane moved out, she snuck back home and into her mom's room and only her mother was sleeping in the bed.
