Film Review: ‘All Roads Lead to Rome’

5 February 2016 8:28 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sarah Jessica Parker flies from New York to Italy for a picturesque getaway under the Tuscan sun, but Hollywood cliches follow her through customs in “All Roads Lead to Rome,” a combination romance, farce and road movie that whiffs in all three departments. Though Parker’s assured performance, along with the enchanting backdrop, eases the action toward harmless gentility, they’re hijacked by a plot that mimics the plate-spinning business of classic screwball, but moves at agonizing half-speed. The journey to Rome is a long one, but the audience is always 300 kilometers ahead, sipping cappuccino on the Piazza Navona while waiting for the filmmakers to catch up. Little revenue will squeeze through its brief theatrical window in February, but the Parker name might carry this modest excursion further on home video and streaming.

Before the title “All Roads Lead to Rome” even appears on the screen, the film is already breathlessly laying out the plot, »

Sarah Jessica Parker Defends Sex and the City's Ending After Darren Star Expresses Regrets About It

4 February 2016 12:58 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Despite Sex and the City creator Darren Star's recent comments, Sarah Jessica Parker still believes Carrie Bradshaw's marriage to Mr. Big at the end of the series played the perfect conclusion. Star had previously expressed that their wedding diminished the message of the show: that women can find happiness without a man or marriage. However, Parker says she still believes Carrie did just that. The actress sat down with Yahoo! Style and explained, "As I recall, the way Carrie and Big married was something she wanted rather than a feeling that life was slipping away and she best settle quickly. I don't think of it as someone diminishing herself by letting a man marry her—it always »

Lisa Edelstein Almost Played Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City and Still Isn't Over It

3 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Can you picture Lisa Edelstein as Carrie Bradshaw? Because we can, and apparently so could the producers back in the '90s when they were casting the series.  The Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce star revealed to Access Hollywood that she was almost cast as the iconic tutu-wearing writer. In fact, she was so close to the role that she had a deal in place and everything. There was just one problem, and her name was Sarah Jessica Parker.  "I was either going to do it or not. It all depended on whether she said yes," Edelstein said. "My contract was complete. I was waiting."  The rest is history, obviously.  Unfortunately, losing out on a »

We've all been that person watching a movie and torturing our friends with a bunch of "why don't they just to this" and "they should have just done that" comments. (No? Just us?)

Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw Wasn’t Supposed to End Up With Mr. Big

16 January 2016 2:12 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For anyone who thought Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker)'s marriage to Mr. Big (Chris Noth) was a betrayal of what the show was about, you're not alone. In a recent Kindle Singles interview, series creator Darren Starr said that, in his prime position, he had to give up some power if he wanted the writer's room to be a collaborative environment. "At a certain point, you've got to let [the writers] follow their vision. … But I think the show ultimately betrayed what it was about, which was that women don't ultimately find happiness from marriage. Not that they can't. But the show initially was going off script from the romantic comedies that had come before it. That's what had made women so attached." We guess he's Team Manolo Blahnik, then. »

Sex and the City Creator Darren Star Says the Show's Ending 'Betrayed What It Was About'

15 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Et tu, Satc? While plenty of Big-and-Carrie endgamers swooned over the unavailable businessman's long-awaited "I love you" in the Sex and the City finale, Darren Star personally finds the moment bittersweet. In a new Kindle Singles interview, the series creator proposes that Satc's shipper-friendly ending was, in fact, a betrayal of the series he created.Said Star, "For me, in a way - and I didn't [write] those last episodes - if you're empowering other people to write and produce your show, you can't ... say certain things." He continued, "At a certain point, you've got to let them follow their vision. »

By the time Darren Star was a ripe old 30, he’d already made the TV big-time: His creations Beverly Hills, 90210 and spinoff Melrose Place were hits on then-nascent Fox network. Then came the HBO’s pop-culture phenom Sex And The City. In a new Kindle Singles Interview, Star talks about the actress who would have played Carrie Bradshaw in Satc if Sarah Jessica Parker had turned down the role; the woman originally cast as Samantha; and a few regrets about his misses — and… »

Project Runway's fashion aspirations fall short (but it's not necessarily a bad thing)

15 January 2016 9:47 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The reality show’s claim that it is a launch pad for the ‘next great American fashion designer’ looks suspect, but it does stand as proof that you don’t need to be a superstar to make a living doing what you love

Lifetime has announced that season five of Project Runway All Stars will debut on 11 February, featuring, most notably, 2013 season 12 winner Dom Streater. As a fan of Dom and her designs, I’m pleased – but her inclusion, and the regular return of former winners to the All Stars lineup, raises some questions. Project Runway is supposed to be a launching pad for the “next great American fashion designer”, as one of the show’s taglines insists. So if season 12 did what it was supposed to and turned Dom into America’s next great American fashion designer, what is she doing on reality television?

Alas, the truth is that »

For the record, Sarah Jessica Parker is not that much like her Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw. "People probably don't realize that Carrie Bradshaw was radically different from who I was, who I continue to be," Parker told Wsg Magazine. "I think that sometimes because we look alike and live in the same city and haunt the same neighborhoods, that it was sort of like I was playing in the sandbox, when in truth it took real work every day to be her, to understand her, to not judge her."

Sarah Jessica Parker Says It Was Hard For Her to "Not Judge" Carrie Bradshaw

14 January 2016 3:23 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Sarah Jessica Parker is currently filming her new HBO series, Divorce, and a recent glimpse at the set gave us major Carrie Bradshaw vibes. Though her new character and show are much different from Sex and the City, the actress has still managed to draw comparisons to the iconic role she played from 1998 to 2004. In a new interview about "transformation" with WSJ Magazine, Parker opened up about the extreme differences between her and Carrie Bradshaw and how it was often hard "to not judge her" for a lot of the things she said and did during the course of the show. She said: "I love the process of becoming somebody else, but the work to become so, and to be convincing, is still very challenging. Every project is brand new and scary. People probably don't realize that Carrie Bradshaw was radically different from who I was, who I continue to be. »
