'Sex And The City 2' Will Be An Old-Fashioned Surprise

April 7th, 2010 10:01am EDT
Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, Sarah Jessi
Sex and the City 2 seems like it would be reliable enough. It’s the sequel to a movie based on a TV show, so the format is pretty well established. Co-star Willie Garson, who plays Stanford Blatch, gave it an intriguing twist when he described the new adventure of Carrie Bradshaw.

“I think it’s like a wartime comedy,” Garson said. “It’s like a Bing Crosby/Bob Hope road comedy and I think people will really respond to it. I know the fans will love it. I hope that we bring in some more. Who knows?”

The first Sex and the City movie gave all the series regulars an equal part, and the supporti...

Starpulse's 'Top 10 Christmas Movies Of All Time'

December 1st, 2007 11:00am EST
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
I'm sitting with my family at the Thanksgiving table. At the focus is the bird carcass, a bulging centerpiece surrounded by newly stuffed bodies. The cranberry jello, still quivering in the shape of the can, is the only untouched side dish. There is a settling quiet as the full-stomached groans subside and give way to satisfied smiles, until finally somebody strikes up a conversation. Like the feeding frenzy that preceded it, it starts out slow and steadily grows more frantic.

"Oh you can't put that on there!"

"Says who? You... oh yeah.. Mr. Expert."

"I like Love Actually."...
