Hugh Grant returned to screens earlier this year in the low-key, amiable rom-com "The Rewrite." The movie reteamed him writer/director Marc Lawrence ("Two Weeks Notice," "Music And Lyrics," "Did You Hear About The Morgans?") for their fourth movie together, and results were a breezy charmer. If you missed the film, or are a fan, today we've got a special prize. But first, here's what the movie is about... Co-starring Marisa Tomei, Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons, Bella Heathcote, and Chris Elliott, the movie follows Keith Michaels, an Award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, who has hit a personal and professional rut. So when his agent arranges a job as a guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can’t say no. Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students lives, »

The weekend is approaching. You deserve legendary Netflix entertainment. Check out our five picks starring legendary entertainers proving why they're fantastic. Robert Redford is a bad-ass with a ladies' Wimbledon haircut in "Three Days of the Condor" There was a magical time called 1975 in which Robert Redford was indistinguishable from Martina Navratilova. Celebrate that sacred hour with "Three Days of the Condor," the caper starring Redford as a CIA analyst who goes into hiding with a sultry Brooklyn Heights dame (Faye Dunaway) as foes zero in on him. Plenty of Oscar cred here: In addition to Dunaway, John Houseman and Cliff Robertson have key roles, and nominee Max von Sydow scares the hell out of you as an Alsatian assassin. Bill Murray makes monotony a joy in "Groundhog Day" It took me until this year to watch "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and I've decided Andie MacDowell does have a certain something. »

Austin - While it was introduced as a work in progress, Judd Apatow's new film "Trainwreck" looked pretty much locked and ready to release when it played on Sunday afternoon at the Paramount. Since "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" was released, Judd Apatow's filmography has been made up exclusively of films he wrote, many of which felt very personal. "This Is 40" felt to me like a summation of a lot of those ideas and themes, and I'm glad he took some time to decide how to follow that film. "Trainwreck" was written by Amy Schumer, and her voice runs clearly through every part of this movie. What Judd's done here, and it's not as easy as it sounds, is turned his own considerable success into a shield he could use to protect Schumer and guarantee that her voice reached the screen intact. As a result, "Trainwreck" is lacerating, smart, »

Anyone who has ever watched the Godzilla films knows that he isn’t a monster at all. More of a protector really. So this hotel room opening in Tokyo, really is quite soothing to know you have someone looking over you. Not scary at all, honestly.
For just $334 a night on weekdays, you can have Godzilla’s hand looming over you as you sleep and a statue of the kaiju peacefully guarding your doorway. You can even get a room that looks directly out at a Godzilla head mounted on the roof of the hotel.
Ah the Japanese; so like us.

What will March bring to Netflix? Plenty of great TV shows, some killer recent and classic movies, and a slew of highly anticipated Netflix Originals.
First off, there's more amazing TV coming to Netflix in March than we've seen in the past six, with new seasons of "Mad Men," "Glee," and "Archer" coming to the streaming service. What's more? The complete series of "3rd Rock From the Sun" (Yes!) and "A Different World" are also being added. For the latter, I plan on queueing up some "very special episodes" that remind me of my childhood. Also, Marisa Tomei was on it. Remember?! In addition to the shows you know, some spankin' new Netflix Originals are being added: Tina Fey's half-hour comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," starring "The Office's" Ellie Kemper, and "Bloodline," a dramatic thriller starring Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek.
In terms of movies, Netflix is not disappointing. Recent releases »

George Clooney is not particularly known for his feminism, nor his producing of television. These points are set to change, however, with news of an upcoming HBO miniseries – executive produced by Clooney, Grant Heslov and Bruce Cohen – titled Ms. The project will star Marisa Tomei as Gloria Steinem, and Kathy Najimy as Bella Azbug, and will focus specifically on the founding of the groundbreaking Ms Magazine in 1971. Steinem herself will serve as consultant on the series.
Ms Magazine is an American feminist publication which made its debut as an insert in New York Magazine in 1971. Its first full issue hit the news stands in January 1972, with its initial run having sold out in eight days. Now published by the Feminist Majority Foundation, the magazine has a rich history of being at the forefront of the feminist movement, being the first U.S publication to address the subject of domestic violence, »
