I can think of few things more awkward than showing up for work and finding out that my new colleague is someone I used to date. Is there a special HR procedure for dealing with that kind of cringeworthy situation? I don’t think so. But such is the case on the new CW show, “Emily Owens M.D.” (which begins Tuesday, October 16 at 9/8C). Mamie Gummer (that’s Meryl Streep’s daughter!) plays Emily, a first-year intern at a hospital in Denver, who shows up at work to discover that the guy she was in love with in med school is her new coworker. (Extra, extra awkward: so is her high school nemesis. Small world!) Alas, depending on where you live and what field you work in, this might not be all that much of a coincidence, as it’s pretty common to end up dating someone you met through work. I mean, this kind of awkwardness happens all the time in Hollywood. Just look at the 10 former celeb couples who had to deal with costarring alongside their ex after their relationship was over — many of them even had to fake being in love on screen. I would pity them if they weren’t getting paid so much. Keep reading »
Sometimes good guys are actually “good” guys. They treat people well, they help old ladies across the street, their good intentions are matched by their positive (not necessarily chipper or anything, but at leastnice) personality.
And sometimes good guys are just jerks. Keep reading »
You guys, can you believe that “The Princess Bride” is 25 years old? It’s easily one of my favorite movies — and, actually, I really love the book too — that I can watch over and over again. Rob Reiner, Robin Wright, and Cary Elwes (who, sniff, is just not as dashing as he used to be) sat down for an interview on “The Today Show” and revealed that the chemistry between Buttercup and Wesley was legit. Quick clip above!
When it comes to Anna Kendrick, believe the buzz. The girl is all that and a bag of chips. Girl crush alert!
Chances are, you’ve been hearing her name a lot lately, and it’s no surprise. From “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” to “ParaNorman” to “End of Watch,” she’s had a lot of flicks make way to the cinema this year, and she’s not slowing down just yet.
Her latest is the college a cappella competition movie “Pitch Perfect,” in which she not only puts her acting chops on the table but also gives her vocal chords some serious exercise. With her sharp wit, self-deprecating sensibility and sheer talent, the girl’s going places at lightning speed (she may even be the newest badass of the “Captain America” franchise).
So, to extol the Anna Kendrick-ness of Anna Kendrick, here are 10 reasons why she’s better than you, us and just about everybody else. Read more…
I loved ”Mamma Mia!”, the ABBA movie. I loved “Hairspray.” So of course I also loved “Pitch Perfect.” Watching a group of misfits perform everything from Ace of Base to Rihanna together is infectiously, vicariously fun. But aside from the singing (though the singing is so good!) this is a story of unexpected friendships and life-changing love.
The plot is simple: Aubrey (Anna Camp), the Queen Bee of the Barden Bellas, an all-women’s college a cappella group, desperately tries to revive the girls’ reputation after an unfortunate incident at last year’s finals competition: You only have to YouTube “a cappella barf” to find out what that is. Will they or won’t they triumph in finals this time around? Keep reading »
