The idea that recovery and darkness must go hand in hand is just not true, which is why CBS's year-old sitcom Mom is such a refreshing change to the small-screen landscape.
While Fashion Week finishes up in Milan, the real action took place last night in Los Angeles at the Emmy Awards.
Unlike Jane Austen's novels, which always end with the marriage ceremony, I Give It a Year starts with the orange blossom, embarrassing best man's speech and the groom's ill-advised novelty dance.
The Dictator is further proof that it's important to laugh at tyrants, not just fear and hate them. The problem is that this doesn't necessarily make for a great movie.
In September, I wrote about the transition of the generations between actors and how we're at a moment where we can see it happening.
Four new releases fought for a piece of the box office pie and, with the exception of a lower-profile Christian drama playing in 1,100 screens, none of them had much bite.
How much does a woman's sexual past affect how she feels about herself? We asked Karyn Bosnak, author of the book on which "What's Your Number?" is based.

In 1980, Robert Kolker published his influential work of film criticism, A Cinema of Loneliness, a longstanding bible for film students who were fasc...
Rogen, often a writer and producer on his comedies, is just a gun for hire in Observe and Report. This darker, often violent, bizarre and mostly unfunny movie is not the best choice for him.
Here's an idea. Don't see this movie this weekend. Stand up and say no. Why should we spend our good money watching a movie where we get raped for comedic purposes?
