Julie Andrews Celebrates 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' In NYC

September 19th, 2011 12:40pm EDT
Julie Andrews Breakfast at Tiffany's 50th Anniversary Screening
“Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is the kind of movie that feels familiar the first time you watch it, and seems fresher and brighter every time afterwards. It’s iconic. It’s Audrey Hepburn. It’s fashion and the little black dress.

It’s Moon River, a song “Sex & the City” fans may remember Carrie and Big dancing to in the show’s post-9/11 love letter to New York.

It’s New York at its most beautiful, romantic, and hopeful.

While the city has changed and there are certain details (Mickey Rooney) that may not be considered “timeless,” Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly is the type of stylish modern w...

Gobble, Gobble: Time To Serve Up TV Thanksgiving Classics

November 19th, 2010 1:45pm EST
How I Met Your Mother
With the holiday approaching next week, we'd like to know: what are your favorite Thanksgiving episodes? The very best will always be up for debate – maybe you think it's Brad Pitt's appearance on 'Friends,' or perhaps you think it's a drama from the 1950s. To others, 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' holds a special place in their hearts.

Most of my favorites come from comedies – maybe because half-hour sitcoms just know how to nail the absurdities of holiday stress, drinking too much Thanksgiving cheer, and that ridiculously long wait for the Turkey thermometer to pop.

September 23rd, 2009 10:15am EDT
Fame
There are a lot of movies about the angst and the hope of high school, and even a few musicals set in that time period, but none of them were quite as devastating or as memorable as "Fame." The film came out in 1980 and is about the life of an ensemble cast of talented teenagers as they enroll in an extremely competitive performing arts high school. Only the best of the best get into the New York High School of Performing Arts, and those that do get in must prepare for four years of grueling practice and soul crushing criticism. The students learn that they must lean on one another and on a...
