Do you still watch “Pretty Woman” every time you need a good laugh and a good cry? We do, too.
Our favorite opposites attract story is somehow already 23 years old, so in honor of this classic Garry Marshall rom com, we dug up 23 little known facts about the movie. Check them out on Your Tango…
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

“You’re a virgin?” he breathes. I nod, flushing again. He closes his eyes and looks to be counting to ten. When he opens them again, he’s angry, glaring at me. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me?”
I don’t know if that’s the scene “Fifty Shades Of Grey” stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are filming, but it is so much more fun to look at photos of them onset and imagine the shitty bits of dialogue coming out of their mouths. Can’t wait for all 90+ minutes to hit theaters! See a few more pics after the jump… [Photos: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
The perfect way to promote the much anticipated sequel “Anchorman 2″? Send star Will Ferrell to read the news in Bismarck, North Dakota, of all places, as his character Ron Burgundy. Ron was joined by KXMB’s Amber Schatz, who was seriously having the best day at work ever. But HOW did Ron resist making a joke about her last name? A glorious opportunity MISSED. “Anchorman 2″ is in theaters December 20. See part of Burgundy’s newscast above, and more here. [TIME]
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage, as the nursery rhyme goes. Eh, except when it doesn’t. The road to parenthood is a bumpy one for many, and as a 34-year-old woman with no man and babies on the brain, I’m instantly drawn to any film that depicts the non-traditional avenues some couples and singles take towards their dream of having a child. That’s why I’m psyched to see the upcoming film “Expecting,” starring Radha Mitchell and Michelle Monaghan, about a woman named Andie (Monaghan) who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand and decides to have the baby and give it to her reproductively challenged BFF Lizzie. And we’re lucky enough to have an exclusive (sorta NSFW) clip from the Jessie McCormack-directed film! In the clip, Andie — who has moved in with Lizzie and her husband for the duration of her pregnancy — is, um, getting to know Lizzie’s brother-in-law (i.e. with her mouth around his penis) when the couple walks in on them mid-job. Awkwardness ensues! Check out the full trailer for “Expecting” — which is available on VOD/iTunes tomorrow, November 26, and opens in select theaters on December 6 — after the jump! Keep reading »
“Gravity” co-screenwriter Jonás Cuarón, son of the film’s director Alfonso, has made a short film of his own. “Aningaaq” gives us a peek at who was on the other side of Ryan Stone’s (Sandra Bullock’s) distress call. Aningaaq, a fisherman in Greenland, picks up; he and Ryan can barely understand one another, but the connection they share is still comforting and I can’t help but love it. [NYMag.com]
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is premiering this weekend, which means we get to welcome Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) back into our lives for a second time. Check out 15 spoiler free “Catching Fire“ GIFs to get you pumped for the movie on College Candy…
The Hunger Games book series and movies are hugely popular with a wide audience, but I was still surprised (and delighted!) to learn the legendary rock star and poet Patti Smith counts herself amongst its fans. In fact, Smith enjoys the series so much, she:
- Wears a mockingjay pin on her lapel and carries a mockingjay iPhone case.
- Has been known to hold her fingers up in the District 12 salute, which she says is “beautiful” and “brings tears” to her eyes, at concerts.
- She wrote a song for the “Catching Fire” soundtrack called “Capital Letter,” which, she explains, “[Is] like a letter to the Capitol, warning them about Katniss, but warning them in a proud way.” It includes the lyrics, “Rebellion has a heart / Breaking like the dawn / Bursting into song” and “She’s the silent one / In her silent boots / Racing through the flames.”
One question remains: Team Peeta or Team Gale? [Vanity Fair]
It doesn’t yet have a release date, but allow me to make a prediction about the upcoming Atom Egoyan film ”Devil’s Knot,” about the now infamous West Memphis Three murder case — stars Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth will be on the short list of possible Oscar nominees. “Devil’s Knot” is based on the true events surrounding the West Memphis Three case, in which three teens were convicted of the murder of three children in the early-’90s in West Memphis, Arkansas, despite copious evidence that they were innocent. The young men, now adults, long maintained their innocence, but did not see have their convictions overturned and were not released from jail until 2011. I lovvvve Reese Witherspoon as a dramatic actress, especially when she has such fantastic material to work with. And director Atom Egoyan — who’s done a string of strange but genius movies — is an interesting choice to helm the film, but that makes me all the more interested in seeing it. As for Colin Firth? Bonus! Check out the trailer above. [NYMag.com]
