Not Your Usual Rom-Com: Jenny Slate Is Having An Abortion In “Obvious Child”

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 18, 2014
Considering that one in three women will have an abortion during her lifetime, we don't see too many on the big screen. Even in "Knocked Up" and "Juno," two of the biggest movies in the last decade about unplanned pregnancies, the characters barely discussed terminations. That's one of the few reasons I'm very curious to… More »


HBO’s “The Normal Heart” Visits The Start Of The AIDS Crisis

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 18, 2014
As a child of the '90s who learned about HIV in elementary school (from a puppet, I believe), sometimes it's difficult to imagine a world where HIV/AIDS was so misunderstood. There was once a time when people used the word "quarantine" when talking about this public health crisis. And it's painful to remember that i… More »


The “Happy” Music Video Without Music Is Bizarrely Captivating

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 18, 2014
It might sound crazy what I'm about to say ... but the video for Pharrell Williams' "Happy" is a bit creepy without any music. Here are parts of the video with Pharrell and others singing the song without any musical backing, which sounds less like a cappella than you would expect. I'm fairly certain that… More »

John Mayer’s Acoustic Cover Of “XO” Isn’t Too Shabby

By: Claire Hannum / April 17, 2014
Like many members of the female population, I have some misgivings about John Mayer. I've pretty much lost my ability to enjoy his music for what it is without thoughts of his douchey personality tainting my experience. That said, his cover of Beyonce's "XO" is quite nice. If you like John's musical style, you'll love hi… More »

“Tuition,” A Cover Of Beyoncé’s Song “Partition” About Student Loans, Is Beyond Real

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 17, 2014
Beyoncé may have already sung about someone "callin' like a collector" but she's probably never wondered "if I owe Sallie Mae or I owe the mob." That's what Chanel Carroll sings in her completely on point parody cover of "Partition" called (duh) "Tuition" about the loan giant Sallie Mae. Pay all my loans please, I justMore »


Beauty Test Drive: LORAC Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 17, 2014
As a lady with more than a little redness on her face, concealer is one of my must-have beauty products. Concealers come in many forms, like sticks, tubes, and pots, but my particular favorite is a pen or wand. With a foundation wand, you can apply it directly onto your skin and pat it dow… More »

Here’s How You Can Help Make “Fattitude,” A Documentary About Sizeism, A Reality

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 16, 2014
Fat people can't win in popular culture. Either they are the subject of reality TV shows about often-extreme weight loss ("The Biggest Loser," "Heavy, "I Used To Be Fat"), they're headless bodies in news segments about obesity (or chunky cheerleaders), or they're the butt of some hack's lame joke. Fortunately, one new documentary currently raising… More »

Sky Ferreira's new video for her song "I Blame Myself" is a fun one to watch, but it's even more fun to shop. Shot in Compton, this ode to "early ’90s gangster rap videos" features the pop singer as the neighborhood's queen bee, driving around with her crew in a hydraulic car. But she's still got plenty of… More »


Would You Watch A Documentary About Blogging?

By: Claire Hannum / April 16, 2014
Filmmaker Christopher Wiegand drove all over the United States interviewing bloggers (mostly of the "mommy blog" variety, it seems) about why they do what they do, and I'm cautiously curious. As someone who is a bit infatuated with the land of blogging -- I even wrote my thesis on it! -- I'd like to see… More »


Jon Hamm Brings His Emotions To “Sesame Street”

By: Jessica Wakeman / April 16, 2014
I thought the first time I'd see Jon Hamm look "amazed" would be after a roll in the hay with me ... but watching him act out facial expressions for a puppet on "Sesame Street" isn't a bad consolation prize. Here's Jon explaining the meaning of the words "guilty," "frustrated" and "amazed" and showing what… More »


Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

By: Claire Hannum / April 15, 2014
Am I the only who didn't love "American Hustle"? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O'Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards. Christian Bale's meticulous hairstyling routine in the film is funny and all, but Conan's is a… More »

We're big documentary nerds here at The Frisky and one doc I'm dying to see is "Bombay Movie," directed by my friend and former coworker Alex Eaton.

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / April 15, 2014
Okay, okay, I get it, California, you want me to move back. I'm in! I'm game! And even if I wasn't, the "Mad Men" premiere would have convinced me.

The trailer for "Gone Girl," the bestseller by Gillian Flynn, is finally here.
