'Psych' 5.16 'Yin 3 In 2D' Review

December 23rd, 2010 9:53am EST
In my years of writing, I've developed a theory when it comes to villains: as long as it takes to develop a good one, it can take no time at all to overuse them. Wisely, Psych has decided to conclude its ongoing Yin/Yang story with this third installment. Yet there's a tall order to fill, considering the two previous episodes have seen both Shawn's mom and his now-girlfriend Juliet in the line of fire. What could top that?

A woman named Allison (Mena Suvari) claims that she was abducted by the mysterious Mr. Yin, bringing back memories for the SBPD crew, and it isn't long before sh...

Movie Remakes: 'Heartbreak Kid' Fails While Others Have Succeeded

October 10th, 2007 11:54am EDT
The Heartbreak Kid
The Heartbreak Kid, the latest collaboration between Ben Stiller and the Farrelly brothers, debuted in second place this past weekend with a modest $14 million haul at the box office. The last Stiller-Farrelly project, 1998's There's Something About Mary, pulled in $176.5 million that year.

But Shepherd admits she hasn't followed Willis' kissing techniques since the show ended in 1989, and after his split ...
