20 July 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Elizabeth Berkley won't be setting her DVR on for The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story on Lifetime. The actress, who played Jessie Spano on Saved By The Bell, said she has no desire to watch the life she led unfold on screen. "I'm not really curious about it," Berkley, 41, told People at the fourth annual Celebration of Dance Gala presented by The Dizzy Feet Foundation on Saturday in Los Angeles. "We know the lives we led. I have no idea what their picture of it is." The tell-all TV movie centers on the behind-the-scenes drama of the '90s series's six young stars: Berkley, »

Glam Slam: Uniform Style

7 July 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

In the midst of all the summer sales, I am starting to see "Back To School" clothes sprinkled in stores.

Back to school shopping was always was one of my favorite times of the year, both for me growing up and now for my daughter. I loved to dress my 5-year-old in adorable outfits for preschool, but this year she switches to a "big kid" school and she will now wear a uniform. She's kind of obsessed with the uniforms and think they are cool.

This will be a bigger adjustment for me than for her.

7 Comedies That Made Pop Culture Cameos the New Norm

20 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

There was a time when the comedic cameo was a special, timeless treat. It would blend fiction and reality in an irresistible way, one that that might accentuate the rant of a neurotic New Yorker, like Marshall McLuhan in Annie Hall, elaborate on the subtext of comic books like Stan Lee in Mallrats, set the scene of the narrative like the many grunge cameos in Singles, or embody the dream of every struggling college student when paper-subject Kurt Vonnegut pops up to give Rodney Dangerfield some help in Back to School. The above are all contextual, rare and so particular that they’re still remembered all these years later. They were both a viewer treat and an addition that added legitimacy to the film’s message. But what about today? Cameos have shifted from the exception to the norm – I Love You Man, This is the End, Veronica Mars, Zombieland and The Hangover are some of the »

11 Times the New 'Girl Meets World' Trailer Disturbed Me

2 May 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Before I announce why the new "Girl Meets World" trailer is giving me shingles, let's reintroduce some reality to the discussion about the legacy of "Boy Meets World." First, it was a very silly show, much like "Girl Meets World" is shaping up to be. Second, "Boy Meets World" was often way too saccharine and quaint, even when its hammy stars tried to fight it with broad humor. The show probably has more in common with "Full House" than "Friends," but the characters saved it from being an all-out schmaltzkrieg. Now we come to first full "Girl Meets World" trailer, which proclaims that the new show will premiere June 27 at 9:45 p.m. With all those caveats about the original show in mind, watch this. Or try. Ughhhhhhhhhhh. This doesn't appear to be working in any way. Here are 11 times that clip disturbed me. 1. Oh, Cory's daughter is in Cory's class? »

Billy Zabka on How I Met Your Mother, the Zabkatage, and Sweeping the Leg

31 March 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Few actors have portrayed a bully quite as convincingly as William Zabka, a.k.a. Billy Zabka. Starting with 1984’s The Karate Kid, in which he played Johnny Lawrence, a headband-wearing rich kid making life a living hell for Ralph Macchio’s pipsqueak underdog, Zabka became Hollywood’s go-to preppy goon, also stealing scenes via pitch-perfect bitchface performances in 1985’s Just One of the Guys and 1986’s Back to School. More recently, the 48-year-old actor has endeared himself to a new generation through small parts in the 2010 comedy Hot Tub Time Machine and the long-running TV shows How I Met Your Mother and USA Network’s Psych. With the Himym finale looming, Vulture spoke to Zabka about the burgeoning Zabka renaissance (that he and his Twitter fans are calling the #Zabkatage), his 2004 Oscar nomination, and, of course, the Cobra Kai.How did your role on How I Met Your Mother come about? »

In Defence Of... Grease 2, Michelle Pfeiffer's much-maligned sequel

22 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A mainstay of worst-sequels-ever-made lists, squirming alongside the likes of Batman & Robin, Speed 2 and Exorcist II: The Heretic, Grease 2 was roundly lambasted upon its 1982 release and its critical reputation has nose-dived ever since. Here's a film that cost $11.2m to make (£6.7m) - almost twice the budget of its much-loved, popular culture-bothering forerunner - and yet failed to secure the return of its two stars, John Travolta and Olivier Newton-John, or its composers, Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey.

It entered its 58-day shoot working from an unfinished script, with Didi Conn (reappearing as Frenchy, though she vanishes halfway through the movie) calling the production "rushed, frantic and unorganised". Its stars Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield failed to get along, Pfeiffer later labelling her on-screen lover as "self-adoring". It turned away a young Tom Cruise for the role of T-Birds leader Johnny Nogerelli, instead plumping for the strikingly uncharismatic Adrian Zmed. »

Lakme Fashion Week Sr 2014 Day 4 sees collections from designers like Anushka Khanna, Shantanu & Nikhil and more…

16 March 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Anushka Khanna presents “Boom, Boom, Bloom”

Anushka Khanna’s collection called “Boom, Boom, Bloom,” made great fashionable music on the runway at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014. The designer’s inspiration travelled around the globe and halted in New York where the slips, pyjamas, belted kimono jackets and shorts were seen in summer. Moving to studio 54, Anushka’s jazzy lamé wrap dresses and sexy maxis reflected the look of that era.

The collection dominated by the flower power motif was seen as prints as well as embellishments. A photograph of her mother from the 1970’s was the inspiration for the moody floral hues.

Strappy beaded tube dresses, silver embroidered shifts, two toned kimono dresses, metallic skirt and shirt, cutwork shimmering wrap,  a dazzling gold biker’s jacket with a khaki jersey gown and finally a silver striped one-sleeve orange creation were impressive entries.

Dead Before Dawn (2012) Review

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Dead Before Dawn (2012)

Directed by: April Mullen

Written by: Tim Doiron

Cast: Devon Bostick (Casper Galloway), Martha MacIsaac (Charlotte Baker), Christopher Lloyd (Horace Galloway), Brittany Allen (Lucy Winthrop), Brandon Jay McLaren (Dazzle Darlington), Kyle Schmid (Patrick Bishop), Tim Doiron (Seth Munday)

Curiosity got the best of me for this one. After seeing it on the shelves in DVD form, I noticed that it was streaming on Netflix. “Awesome!” I thought. I can check it out without further monetary commitment, and if I like it, I can buy the DVD copy. I guess it’s kind of like calling it back after a hook up, except no one gets their feelings hurt. Even better. What I really noticed about “Dead Before Dawn” was Devon Bostick. He’s a really familiar face at my house as the completely douchy older brother in the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” films. »

Film Review: ‘HairBrained’

27 February 2014 11:35 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Revenge of the Nerds” meets “Back to School” via “Doogie Howser, M.D.” in “HairBrained,” a campus comedy that tries to transcend its many formulaic elements with an insufficient dose of absurdism. This follow-up feature from the writing-directing team behind 2006′s “The Oh in Ohio” seems unlikely to repeat that film’s modest sleeper success, even with the presence of sometime franchise king Brendan Fraser as the past-40 late bloomer who’s an incoming freshman alongside Alex Wolff’s 13-year-old prodigy. Limited U.S. theatrical launch Feb. 28 will be just a brief prelude for imminent better prospects in home formats.

Dropped by his “terrible mother” at the bus station (it’s depressing straight off to see Parker Posey exit the movie after two minutes), child genius Eli Pettifog (Wolff) has already lowered his expectations for college life, having settled for “the 37th best small liberal-arts college on the East Coast »

27 Things We Learned from Harold Ramis’ ‘Groundhog Day’ Commentary

27 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

I made plans late last week to feature Groundhog Day as my next Commentary Commentary title, and immediately discovered that I didn’t own a copy of the film. A quick trip to a nearby video store graced me with a used Blu-ray which I brought home, watched, and fell in love with all over again. It’s that rare, near-perfect movie where everything seems to fall beautifully in place, a film that never weakens on repeat viewings, and one that says more about humanity than many examples of far more serious cinema. Harold Ramis died this past Monday, and while it’s a tragedy for his wife, children, and friends, it also leaves a void for the millions of fans who’ve loved much of his work over the years. Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, National Lampoon’s VacationGhostbusters, Back to School, Groundhog DayThe Ice Harvest… all fantastically fun films that wouldn’t have been the »

Harold Ramis obituary

25 February 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor, writer and director who changed the course of Us film comedy with movies such as Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day

The writer, director and actor Harold Ramis, who has died aged 69 from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, was responsible for one masterpiece and several influential smash-hits. In each of his creative capacities, he was the eternal quiet man. In front of the camera, his blithe and undemanding presence often disguised his comic skill or made it appear effortless; he seemed happy to hang back and surrender the limelight to more demonstrative and dynamic collaborators, such as his Ghostbusters co-stars Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. In his writing and directing he was adept at capitalising on an audience's love of coarseness without resorting to cruelty or sacrificing his compassion.

Much of his work – including National Lampoon's Animal House (1978), Meatballs (1979) and Ghostbusters (1984), all of which he co-wrote, and Caddyshack (1980), which he co-wrote »

Remembering Comedy Legend Harold Ramis

24 February 2014 1:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We're losing them too fast, aren't we? Today comes the sad news that comedy legend Harold Ramis passed away from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis at age 69. He was old enough to have influenced a generation of comedy writers, from Adam Sandler to Judd Apatow, but gosh, 69 still feels too young. Most viewers will remember Ramis as Egon Spengler, the dry one in his landmark '84 hit Ghostbusters. No, the really dry one - the egghead who strapped Rick Moranis into some sort of cranial contraption to hear him spout about the return of Gozer the Traveler; the one who explained the »

Harold Ramis, comedy legend behind 'Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters,' and 'Groundhog Day,' dies at age 69

24 February 2014 1:03 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

With his sly, Cheshire cat grin and twinkling, half-mast eyes hidden behind owlish glasses, Harold Ramis always gave the impression of a guy who was guarding the punchline to the world’s funniest joke. And it’s quite possible he was. After all, if anyone had the merry-prankster genius to conceive it, polish it into a jeweler-precise gem, and deliver it with crack comic timing, it was Ramis, who passed away early Monday morning at age 69 from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves the swelling of blood vessels.

R.I.P. 'Ghostbuster' Harold Ramis

24 February 2014 11:54 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

This one is kind of a gut punch: actor/writer/director Harold Ramis is dead at age 69.

Probably best known for his role in Ghostbusters, Ramis had a long career in comedy as a writer, director, producer, and actor, including classics like Animal House, Caddyshack, Back to School, and Groundhog Day. But to me, he will always be Dr. Egon Spengler, the "nerdy" Ghostbuster. I watched the Ghostbusters movies - and the animated series - obsessively in my youth. Maybe because I am nerd, but I always felt a kinship with Egon.

Ramis died on Monday of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a condition he battled for several years. He is survived by his wife, three children, and two grandchildren.

No word on what this means for the long-rumored Ghostbusters III, but I can't imagine it could slow the process any more.

"Do, ray, Egon!"

R.I.P. Harold Ramis (1944-2014)

24 February 2014 10:08 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you throw a rock into the comedy world of the '70s, '80s and '90s, you're bound to hit something written, directed or starring (or all three) Harold Ramis. And today you'll want to pull one out and put it on to pay tribute to one of the crucial keys of the American comedy world, as Ramis has passed away today at the age of 69. The Chicago-born Ramis got his start writing and performing on the wildly influential "Sctv" and "The National Lampoon Show," building key relationships the folks he could collaborate with later in his career (notably John Belushi and Bill Murray) before making the leap to writing and directing feature films. And the list of achievements speaks for itself. Screenplays credited to Ramis include: "Meatballs," "Stripes," "Caddyshack," "Back To School," "Ghostbusters," and "Ghostbusters II."  As an actor he'll likely be remembered for playing the delightfully »
