I always find that strange because the bulk of her movie roles have been terrible and she has been terrible in them. Freaky Friday, The Parent Trap and Mean Girls were exceptional but aside from that she is mostly or exclusively been in bad movies.
New Years Eve is a time of new beginnings, new romance, new resolutions, blah, blah, etc. NYE can be totally fun if you have good plans but for most people I think, the expectations get turned way up when the reality is any NYE party you go to will probably be just like any of other parties you've gone to.
According to just about everything and everyone, the Mayans, various religious groups, global warming reports,etc., we're at the end of times. If the world ends sometime in the next few weeks, be it from hostile takeovers from other countries, alien attacks, zombies, climate change or whatever, I'd like for a band of fictional characters to come together and save the day. Here's a gallery of who I'd want on my team. Which characters would you want to save you? Enjoy!
Who doesn't love the movie Clueless? It is a quintessential '90s fim with amazing fashion, dry and snappy humor and teenage girl/first world problems. I highly recommend seeing the film - quite possibly with a bottle of wine and your BFFs. Anyway, for your friends who quote Clueless like they do Mean Girls these will make some great gifts and stocking stuffers.
The Golden Globe nominations have been announced. I personally am not into awards ceremonies because it's like going to someone's graduation or wedding that you don't know. It's very boring. But if you're into it, then that's cool. Movies are awesome, but it kind of seems like the same people always win (many of them are talented, yes). That's some bourgeoisie shiz.
OK, I'm not going to lie. I haven't seen a lot of these movies, but I think the movie posters and synopsis speak for themselves. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe these are comparable to Dickensian classics. Probs not, though - probs not. At the very least we can agree that these movies look terrible.
After having her son, Noah, Megan has rethought her past roles which (ahem - Transformers) highlighted her body instead of her acting chops. She has resigned to covering up so that when her son gets older he doesn't have to deal with the "humiliation." She said, "I'm going to be more cautious about choosing films because I'm already thinking about when he's in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he's going to be horrified. So that will deter me from making some of the choices I made before."
Why is it that the best guys seem to be fictional? I know because the guys are fictional characters that they seem super put together or adorably flawed but a girl can't help but fantasize.

Fun little tidbit of personal history: When I was little The Wizard of Oz was my favorite movie. I used to pretend I was Dorothy and would get irrationally upset when anyone actually referred to me as Molly.
Before this week, one of the most popular Sandys was Sandy Olsen, the iconic lead actress in Grease. We’ve all seen it, memorized it, and sang along to the songs with confidence.
From the comfy clothes, to the massive amounts of junk food we're allowed to eat, to the take out and the wine. (Because you just can't have girls night without wine, right?) I love cozying up on the couch to chat about life, sharing secrets, and watching girly nostalgic movies.
Have you ever read a really great book and thought, "Wow, that would make a great movie"? Or maybe one of your favorite books has already been turned into a movie, but it was only so-so.
While Mother Nature may still be busy making up her mind, one thing is for certain: spring is here. It’s safe to say we can finally store our UGGs away for the season and bring out our flip-flops and dresses from the closet.
Anne Hathaway is reportedly following a diet of only 500 calories per day, and is said to have lost 16 pounds for her role in Les Miserables. That's a substantial amount of weight to lose, especially for someone who was thin to begin with. Anne's not the first celeb to transform her body for a movie role. Check out our list of 10 actors who went to extremes to look the part.
I live in NYC, and my crippling fear of bedbugs prevents me from going to see the movies. Which means I haven't gone to a movie in a long time. But this summer I'm heading home to visit my family in a town where no one has ever gotten bedbugs. So in honor of my summer of freedom, here are the trailers from a few movies that I can't wait to see.
Here in NYC, we've had a strangely warm winter. For the most part, it's been pretty great. Who could complain about sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s during winter? But there is one sad part – no snow. And even worse, there's rain. Few things are more depressing than cold winter rain.
Are you guys excited to see The Vow? I've heard some of my friends say they're hesitant because all "these type" of movies end the same way. Well, I hear the movie ends in a way that we wouldn't quite expect. Since I haven't seen it yet, I can only guess about how things turn out. Here are a few possible scenarios I've come up with...
• Newt Gingrich thinks Brad Pitt should play him in a movie. • Do teen girls need more "protection"? • Miley Cyrus bought a new car... with cash. • Look cute while watching the Superbowl. • 7 perfect V-day gifts! • Are your psychological problems determined by your favorite princess?
I'm a dancer, so you can bet that the second anyone starts to dance in a movie, I'm paying attention. Sometimes I go on YouTube binges where I spend hours and hours looking at dance videos. But I don't just enjoy watching videos of professional dancers onstage – I love movie dance scenes, too. And believe it or not, great dancing pops up in unexpected places.
In honor of my childhood dream for just one snow day, here’s a list of movies for the perfect snow day marathon. I recommend combining this list of comedies, thrillers, and childhood flashbacks with some hot chocolate and a cute cuddle partner!
New Year's Eve is seriously THE most overrated holiday of the year. Valentine's Day is the day that all lazy boyfriends have to get up off their asses and remind their girlfriends why they should stick around, and Halloween is the night to dress up like someone else and make out with someone whose face you don't ever really want to see. So why celebrate NYE?
If you're looking for a way to spend time with family members without actually interacting with them, do as you did on those dates back in high school: go to a movie. There are plenty of feel-good flicks conveniently released for the holiday season, but here are a few films that might have flown under your radar and are definitely worth your attention.
Oh, god. Who needs yet another romantic comedy the world? Is it seriously necessary to make every member the single girl society feel horrible about themselves and feed today’s tweens with more unrealistic expectations about love? Well, The 'Five-Year Engagement' stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt. And it’s from the same filmmakers that enlightened us all with 'Bridesmaids,' 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' and 'Knocked Up.' I take back everything I just said—this movie is COMPLETELY necessary.

Between Harry Potter, Bridesmaids, and what will now be known as the Ryan Gosling 2011 Breakout Year Film Collection, this was a phenomenal year for the movies. I laughed, I cried, and I regretted buying a $6 soda all at the movie theater this year.
Breaking Dawn came out on Thursday night and in it's four-day span in the box office, it's already earned $140 million. Now, I know Twilight is really awesome to Twilight fans, and I used to be one. But I simply can't bear seeing Kristen Stewart be awkward anymore, and it still bums me out that Robert Pattinson has forgotten his Harry Potter roots.
I cannot express how excited I am for the new Muppet movie coming out on November 23rd. What's even more exciting is that Jason Segel co-wrote it and is starring along side our favorite furry characters.
I’m a pop culture junkie who just graduated from college, moved to LA and rediscovered the magic of television. Because seriously, who has time to keep up with the Kardashians—or any of our favorite celebrities—amidst midterms, internships, rush week and grad school applications? Well from now on, I’m gonna make sure that you do.
Picking the perfect film for a girl's night always comes down to how you want the party to go. Comforting a friend with a broken heart? Avoid the dramas and rom-coms. All the girls feeling stressed due to boys, bills, and work? I recommend a Disney classic. Feeling nostalgic? Anything 80s or anything that was released when we were in high school.
The first time I tuned into ABC Family was years and years ago. Other channels had been showing previews for an ABC Family drama about a girl and a horse. Still heartbroken over the loss of my beloved Caitlin’s Way (they totally stole the plotline!), I decided to give Wildfire a try.

It might be because I spend too much time in the realm of fiction (reading novels, watching movies, obsessing over tv), but I've been known to spend more than my fair share of time considering the pros and cons of men that don't actually exist. The good. The bad. What they do right. What they do wrong. Why I can't actually meet the men that Carrie Bradshaw dated.
Now, normally I'm a tough movie critic, especially when it comes to movies which target women. Often those movies are predictable, one dimensional, and full of supposedly comedic moments which tend to fall flat. So when I went to see Bridesmaids, one of the most anticipated female movies in a long time, I was hopeful but also skeptical.
Everyone loves a good movie quote. Here's lookin at you kid. Tomorrow is another day. If you build it he will come. I love lamp. They work their way into our lives and our vocabulary without us even realizing it.
Lifetime movies, like eating frosting out of the tub with a spoon, are one of those guilty pleasures we all indulge in that only our closet friends know about. However, let's be real: we all love watching those cheesy movies that our favorite D-list actors star in to revive their long-lost careers. And tonight's newest addition, 'Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy' is no exception.
