The screenplay was written by Tina Fey and was based in part on Rosalind Wiseman's non-fiction book "Queen Bees and Wannabes." Every school has a pack of girls who believe their way is the best and dissuade outsiders from attempting to break into their cliques. As in many John Hughes films, the film has a female protagonist who in the end is the one person who can unite the un-uniteable. Today, the film continues to be a favorite of tween ...

The Andrew Garfield-Batkid Situation: You may have heard the rumors swirling around the reason Batkid's surprise appearance at The Oscars was cut.

'Parks And Recreation' - 'London Part I & II' Review

Parks and Recreation
“Parks and Recreation” is back and we could not be happier, especially when the new season kicks off with such a fantastic episode. How is it that a series that can be so ridiculously funny and silly also have me tearing up by the closing credits? It still amazes me that the show manages to sustain such a perfect combination of comedy and real emotion without ever crossing the line into sappy or overwrought. The writers balance the two facets of the show exceptionally and “London Part I & II” are great examples of their skill. Starting out with the greatest wedding ever televised, real or f...

This week’s episode of Parks and Recreation brought to mind an interview I read recently with Chris Onstad, the writer-artist behind Achewood, a popular web comic about cats who make fun of The Cure. After nine years of churning out content for Achewood—comics, blog posts, books, t-shirts, mugs—Onstad’s output started to trickle until, suddenly, it stopped. To put it mildly, his fans freaked out. The reason why he stopped doesn’t really matter in this context, but in the interview, Onstad touches on how the small amount of negative feedback he received negated much of the wild praise that h...

Tonight, we meet perhaps the most delightfully dumb specimen to ever cross paths with the Parks department: city council candidate and heir to the Sweetums candy fortune Bobby Newport, played by the wonderful Paul Rudd.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
