'Two And A Half Men' Recap – Who’s Getting The Pickle?

December 6th, 2011 11:49am EST
TWO AND A HALF MEN
This week on Two and a Half Men: Well, it seems we’re not done with Zoe, the gorgeous British woman who wisely told Walden that he’s not yet ready to date other women. She sensed that he’s still mourning his ex-wife Bridget. With a child of her own, she won’t let Walden into her life.

But wisdom comes with age and maturity, neither of which burden Walden. So this week, he tries again to capture Zoe’s heart. At a coffee shop, Walden narrowly prevents a chair-jacking when Zoe is late, having had a meeting about a kindergarten she’d like her five year old daughter to attend.

Walden’s big pla...

'Two And A Half Men' – Life Without Charlie – Season Premiere Recap

September 20th, 2011 8:57am EDT
Two And A Half Men
If you tuned into the season premiere of "Two And A Half Men" last night expecting one last glimpse of Charlie Harper, you were sadly disappointed. Rather, you were treated to an array of guest stars, and Charlie’s replacement, Ashton Kutcher, as Walden Schmidt, a hairy, gangly innocent, who apparently is “hung like an elephant.” Oh dear. It’s never a good sign when a show chooses casual nudity over clever, biting repartee. By offering up Kutcher as a classic ‘himbo’ over Charlie Sheen’s cynical roué, the show has drawn a line in the sand. Sadly, there may not be many who wish to step over...

Review: 'Win Win' 'Two Jews On Film' Agree This Is Definitely A Winning Movie (Video)

March 18th, 2011 2:06pm EDT
Winn Winn
'Win Win' directed and written by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor and The Station Agent) explores the depths and nuances of human relationships. It shows us how under certain circumstances, even the most unlikely characters can come together and form a bond that is life changing.

Attorney Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti) is your typical Everyman. He has a loving wife Jackie ( brilliant Amy Ryan) and two small kids who adore him. The only thing Mike loves almost as much as his family is...'Wrestling'. Too bad the high school wrestling team Mike coaches along with his law partner, Stephen (Jeffr...

2009 Fall Movie Previews
With summer coming to an end, there's one major thing to consider: what's going to be entertaining for the next three months? We assume you're thinking the same thing (great minds being alike and all), so here's the rundown of what Hollywood has coming:

Gamer (09/04/09)

Director: Mark Neveldine, Brian Taylor

Starring: Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall

Gamer will be one of the coolest movies of the season because it actually manages to bring a fairly new concept to the action genre. In the near future, with mind control technology pretty much commonplace, billionaire Ken Castle (Michael...

TV Shows On The Verge Of Jumping The Shark

July 15th, 2009 11:23am EDT
24
The concept of 'jumping the shark' is a fatal one for many involved in television. It all began in the tragic episode of 'Happy Days' in which iconic character, The Fonz, literally jumps over a shark, thus placing a death toll on the rest of the series. Decades later, some TV writers have playfully used the term in decidedly ironic tones, both 'The X-Files' and 'Supernatural' have episodes titled 'Jump the Shark' (Note: a portion of 'Supernatural's' crew are 'X-Files' alum) that tiptoe the line of throwing a series into oblivion.

We will have a few current TV shows that we believe ar...

The Best And Worst Of Kate Winslet

December 22nd, 2008 10:18am EST
Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet is one of the most respected actresses of modern day, and she is also remarkable in her excellent list of film roles from start to finish. There were very few movies that could even be considered 'bad' on her resume, and even the less successful ones garnered praise for her performance alone. Beautiful, intelligent, picky, and somewhat of an indie film darling, Winslet has a wicked sense of humor to go along with her sweet smile. Just watch her guest appearance on "Extras!" This British spitfire has been nominated for five Oscars with no wins ... yet. We'll have to see what the...

Five Shows You Aren't Watching...But Should Be

November 14th, 2008 10:00am EST
5 TV Shows You Should Watch
There are plenty of great television shows out there but let's face it - we don't all have the time to watch every single one. Here are the top five shows that you should check out.

5. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX)

This off-the-wall sitcom is often underrated because it doesn't air on a major primetime network. Similar to the pointless yet hilarious humor of Seinfeld, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is about four friends living and working in Philly. Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney), Dennis (Glenn Howerton) and Dee (Kaitlin O...

Fifteen Flicks to Avoid on Family Movie Night

Fifteen Flicks to Avoid on Family Movie Night
Picture this: There's nothing on network so Mom or Pop finds a movie on a premium channel or slides in a DVD from the local video store. Everything's fine until two actors start a simulated bump-n-grind in 53 unavoidable inches of high def skin on parade.

The room gets quiet. Your face gets hot. You do your best not to look at anyone else while your insides curdle and you long to be anywhere but in that room. Sound familiar? Whether your 15 or 50, watching certain subject matter with your elders can equal sheer mortification; with that in mind, we've compiled a list of twenty films too a...
