Movie depictions of the dark angel have ranged from serious to hilarious to downright chilling.

Here are our picks for the 12 best portrayals of...

She explains to Britain's Daily Mirror, "Johnny and I are both fans of South Park and the character Mr. Hankey the Christmas Poo. It's absurd but very funny. Johnny ma...

'Modern Family': Why Aren’t You Watching It!?

Then coworkers let down their guard and a bit of their normalcy showed through, "Haven't you heard of Modern Family?" Apparently I had to watch this show about a giant dysfunctional family that includes gays, giant age gaps in marriages, and a shooting style akin to "The Office." One caveat; it was on ABC. Nothing edgy or incredible hilarious happens on regular TV channels anymore!
