The 25 Most Iconic Things About ‘Pretty Woman’

23 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s been 25 years since the release of Garry Marshall‘s timeless fairytale, Pretty Woman. When it arrived in theaters back in 1990, the film opened to mixed reviews, but the dramedy starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere would become a box office smash and a cultural touchstone.Twenty five years later, Pretty Woman is a beloved classic, not to mention a pop culture reference in movies like Romy and Michele’s High School reunion and TV shows like Broad City and Parks and Recreation. From those unforgettable outfits to those endlessly re-quotable lines, we’ve picked the 25 most iconic things from Pretty Woman.

1. It Turned Julia Roberts Into a Full-Fledged Movie Star

Yes, the actress broke out in Hollywood in the late ’80s thanks to her work in Mystic Pizza and Steel Magnolias, but it wasn’t until she nabbed the role as bubbly, sexy hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold Vivian Ward that she became an A-list leading lady. »

SXSW 2015: Hollywood Heads to Austin for Annual Festivities

20 March 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.

SXSW kicked off on Friday the 13th, very fittingly with a haunted house party, hosted by Wgn America’s supernatural thriller “Salem.”

“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.

“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

Watch Trailer for Rashida Jones’ New TV Comedy 'Angie Tribeca' (There’s Just That One Thing Though...)

17 March 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Here is the first trailer for the new TBS comedy series "Angie Tribeca," starring Rashida Jones as a cop on the Los Angeles Police force in the Rhcu (Really Heinous Crimes Unit). It’s obvious from the trailer that the show is trying to recapture that joke-a-second, off-the wall absurdist humor from other similar TV police comedies of the 1980’s, such as the still classic "Police Squad" with Leslie Nielsen (which became the basis for those hysterical "Naked Gun" comedy movies) and "Sledgehammer." However something seems off in this trailer. The humor feels too forced and not absurdist enough, and Jones, at least to me, is woefully miscast in »

Steve and Nancy Carell’s upcoming TBS comedy “Angie Tribeca” premiered at SXSW on Saturday, as part of the Episodic screening category for SXSW Film, launched last year to premiere new television series, which fit the bill of the festival’s edgy and unique feature material.

“We had a great time putting this together and shooting this,” Steve Carell said, as he and Nancy were greeted by loud applause from the tech fest crowd. He joked, “We have the second one if you want to see it — it’s on my iPhone.”
