When the movies by and about women do come out, in equal numbers and with equal budgets, hopefully the men who review them will have evolved enough to see a woman-child doing crass, gross-out comedy with her female co-star and find it funny.
If you are going up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening weekend you had better bring your A game. This is their Z game. The movie just isn't funny overall. There are a few bright spots here and there, but not a lot.
Tina Fey drives Sisters. Amy Poehler steals it. Sisters is a film starring women about women, but is for everyone. (Well, maybe not the teenies.) The ...
It's the year 2000. Marc Maron, in his gruff comic-shout tells you he read Beat poetry growing up in New Mexico. It's a performance of The Jeruselum...
Like the comedy teams of old, Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, Fey and Poehler offer irresistible side splitting guffaws in Sisters, their new movie that opened this week at the Ziegfeld with a party at MoMA.
Created and hosted by ArcLight's Executive Vice President Gretchen McCourt, the Women In Entertainment Summit will feature keynotes by Academy Award winner Geena Davis, founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, and Women In Film President Cathy Schulman.
Our youth reporters have called this Disney / Pixar film, Inside Out a "masterpiece" of animation. They love the storyline which explores the bumpy ...
The occasion is this year's Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival, this weekend, October 24th and 25th, and the delightful subject is Jessica Williams, who will receive -- along with award-winning actress Ebony Jo-Ann -- the inaugural Reel Sisters Hattie McDaniel Award.
Is it possible to have too much comedy? Festival Supreme seems to be insistent on testing that limit, adding a fourth stage this year. The third annual Festival, which took place in downtown Los Angeles, was chock full of comedians, sketch acts, rock bands, and oddities this past weekend.
While Amy's personal experience is in the entertainment industry, her advice about cultivating healthy detachment can benefit anyone -- entrepreneurs in particular.
Even now, days later, I find myself considering Riley and her emotions. I think about the end of the movie when she finally opened up to her parents about how she felt. Instead of her parents simply telling her to be happy -- what most of us are told -- they said they feel the same way.
To this day, I'm hard-pressed to think of an experience as simple yet as satisfying as listening to a beautiful story read aloud. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but judging by the immersive experience these 11 audiobooks give us, a sound can be worth a whole lot more.
May I call you Amy? I know we've never met, but after reading your book, Yes Please, I feel like we just had a two week slumber party. And after you've seen someone in their hypothetical pajamas, it seems we should be on a first-name basis.
Fighting re-animated dinosaurs, threatening creatures from the future and all manner of the undead may be somewhat of a diversion. But more useful and in these cases more entertaining, as well, are those films which provide clues for dealing with our real life, daily challenges!

This is a cute movie - colorful, silly, good storyline. Well-played, Disney. Throw Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, and Mindy Kaling into the mix and there's enough money to feed a gazillion hungry kids (hint, hint). BUT -- let's keep it real -- it's more than just a colorful eyeball party.
