Those dance dynamo paperboys of Newsies occupied the Academy of Music in Philly for the kick-off of their boffo 1st National Tour of the 2012 multi-To...
I know, I know, my title may sound a bit redundant but the truth is the first time I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2 I...hated it. Not loudly or emphatically but with a quiet burning dislike.

"What's more offensive, a little girl saying f*ck or the f*ing sexist way society treats girls and women?" ask a 6-year-old in a pink taffeta princess dress and tiara in a new video making the rounds on Facebook.
Since he's a relatively youthful 45-year-old, it's genuinely hard to think of Hal Sparks as an elder statesman of broadcasting.

Halloween is almost here and I've had costumes, not candy, on my mind. Lots of parents have been asking me about the appropriateness of sexy costumes for their tween and teen daughters.
There's a way that things used to work in the television animation universe. First a new show would go on the air. Then viewers would sample a few episodes and decide if they actually liked a program. If that were the case, then the fan base for this new animated series would slowly build over time.
Whether you're a fan of the "casters" found in Beautiful Creatures, or a witch in a modern fairy tale like Spellbound, this list has something for everyone and is sure to satisfy all your spooky needs this fall.
It's the fundraiser that Disney fans happily and willingly get out of bed at 3 a.m. to take part in. The one that people actually schedule their Southern California vacations around, with some participants flying in from as far away as Texas, Illinois and Connecticut.
