Some nights you browse Tinder hoping for a good match. Other nights you lie in bed with your best friend examining each others' boobs. Or, in the case of Sasha and Paige in Life Partners, you do both. Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester and Community's Gillian Jacobs star as Sasha and Paige in Life Partners, a film that follows two best friends and what happens when one of them gets a boyfriend, played by Meester's real-life husband Adam Brody. It's silly and heartfelt and a surprisingly realistic portrayal of female friendships. Case in point: Sasha yells about how badly »

As if we needed another reason to love and admire Adam Brody. The O.C. alum, who happily calls Leighton Meester his wife, is not afraid to admit his affection for movies. But during an appearance on Tuesday's Meredith Vieira Show, the actor surprised a few admirers with his absolute favorite titles. "I recall really liking the movie Serendipity," he admitted to Meredith Vieira. "I haven't seen it since it came out so does it hold up for me, I don't know." So is it safe to say Brody likes a solid chick flick? "Yeah, sure. It's a romantic comedy," he responded. "I really just like it a lot. I am all for a romantic comedy. I love a good »
Movies about friendships being tested by new romantic interests are nothing new, but Life Partners just about manages not to let that familiarity grate. Credit writer-director Susanna Fogel and her co-writer Joni Lefkowitz, who punch up a rather commonplace premise with honest scripting and a warm sense of humor. Their unidealized depiction of the relationship between long-time friends Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs), is interesting to watch, and that realism also helps Life Partners to navigate some trickier, though no less conventional, narrative territory in its latter half.
In terms of plot, what’s on offer is undeniably standard. Sasha and Paige are close friends of the nail-painting, bed-sharing variety, who have their relationship altered and in some ways threatened by Paige’s blossoming romance with Tim (Adam Brody), a badly dressed but incessantly charming guy who quickly wins Paige over. As much as they have in common, »

Directed by: Susanna Fogel
Long-term friendships are probably the most treasured definition of a kind of ideal relationship that an individual could ever develop in their lives. This is certainly so for late twenty-somethings Sasha and Paige, the perky protagonists in director Susanna Fogel’s spry, down-to-earth dramedy Life Partners. Charming, quirky and breezily spirited, Fogel presents a chippy but honest character study of female empowerment that is certainly infectious and relatable. Life Partners is a precise look at the subtle anxieties of growing up and possibly growing apart relating to contemporary womanhood.
Fogel establishes a clear cut blueprint for long-time best buddies Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) whose closeness and continued bonding are puzzling given the fact that they are opposite souls with different philosophies on life. »

The flick follows the co-dependent friendship between two extremely different girls, Sasha (Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs). Their bond is tested when Paige meets Tim (Brody), a charming, sweet, and young doctor.

Many may know Leighton Meester as the fashion-forward Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl. But almost two years after the popular CW show concluded, the 28-year-old is ready to tackle the music scene once again with a brand new folk-pop album. Despite the disc being filled with more than a few sad songs, Meester is opening up to Noisey about her writing process alongside husband, Adam Brody. "If you didn't have pain then you wouldn't have a record, a movie, or a book, or anything," she shared. "When I'm writing, I can't think about how it comes out. I just do what feels right." And while Mr. and Mrs. Brody have no troubles bonding over music, both parties admit to having »

This sequel to the popular DreamWorks animated film isn't quite as winning as the original, but the adventures of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon Toothless still manage to please.

Melissa McCarthy co-wrote this comedy/drama with her husband Ben Falcone, who also directs. Marketed as a broad comedy with lots of physical humor, "Tammy" has more to it than McCarthy's pratfalls and naughty humor. Susan Sarandon co-stars as Tammy's alcoholic grandmother Pearl, who accompanies Tammy on an ill-fated road trip. This included »

Robert Downey Jr's career resurgence has been a joy to behold. Without it, we wouldn't have his wry, nuanced, endlessly charismatic Tony Stark, and without Tony Stark we wouldn't have the Marvel Cinematic Universe which has, on the whole, been nothing but good news for comic book movies and the audiences that love them. But Downey hasn't shown much range over the past five years of near-relentless Starking, and The Judge looks ostensibly like a breath of fresh air, his first "serious" role since Joe Wright's little-seen The Soloist in 2009.
But what's most disappointing about David Dobkin's drama, which weaves an engaging but hackneyed web of paternal strife and small-town crime, is just how unsurprising every moment of Downey's performance is. He plays city slicker Hank Palmer, »
