B.J. Novak Responds to Mindy Kaling's Revelation That She Once Wanted to Marry Him

8 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If there's ever a When Harry Met Sally... remake, it should star B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling. The amicable exes met as writers on NBC's The Office, and to this day, they continue to support each other both on- and off-screen. On Tuesday, in fact, Kaling tweeted a picture of herself holding Novak's The Book With No Pictures. "No one bother me," the Mindy Project star wrote. "I'm reading it all day." Later that night, Novak was asked how he felt about Kaling revealing she once considered marrying him. "I thought it was...it sounded to me an honest and heartfelt account of a complicated and mostly wonderful relationship," the author said on Bravo's Watch What Happens »

John Mellencamp on Meg Ryan Split: 'I Never Say Die for Anything'

27 September 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Mellencamp apparently still carries a torch for Meg Ryan. The Indiana-based musician, 62, responded with an expletive when asked about reports circulating this summer that he and the When Harry Met Sally actress had split up after more than three years of dating, although he didn't explicitly address their status. "I'm very happy with the time I've spent with Meg Ryan," he told The Associated Press. "She's a beautiful girl and I know that I will never, ever, ever be with a funnier girl than her. Not gonna happen. I'm grateful for the three and a half years we've been together. »

This is the Part I Really Like: Top ten movie-in-movie moments

23 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sometimes it’s just a joke, sometimes it has hidden meaning, and sometimes it’s simply the director showing off their eclectic taste in all things celluloid (read: Quentin Tarantino). But one thing’s for sure: the annals of cinema history are littered with movie-in-movie moments.

The granddaddy of movie-in-movie moments comes from The Shawshank Redemption – released twenty years ago today. So in honour of its anniversary, we thought we’d go all “meta” by looking back at ten of the most memorable movie-in-movie moments to grace the multiplex.

Gilda (1946) in The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Though it’s probably a little bit cruel to show prison inmates Rita Hayworth at her finest, this 40’s classic plays a prominent role in the film’s plot as Andy later uses a poster from the 1946 noir to cover the entrance to the tunnel that he’s painstakingly carved out of the prison walls.

Watch: Billy Crystal and Jimmy Fallon Flip Lips for Goofy Banter

19 September 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Jimmy Fallon spent his last day as a 39-year-old getting silly with comedic stalwart Billy Crystal. On Thursday, the birthday boy invited Crystal on The Tonight Show to flip lips. With a little help from the TV control booth, Fallon and the When Harry Met Sally actor switched mouths and took turns speaking for one another. "I just bought a Tesla. It makes no sound," Crystal's lips said while pasted onto Fallon's face. This isn't the first time the host has relied on this goofy switcheroo. Fallon and Crystal pulled the same trick on his previous show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. »

James Franco re-enacts film scenes for fun, postmodernism in 'Making a Scene'

16 September 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

AOL Original’s new series Making a Scene with James Franco debuts this Wednesday, and it features James Franco doing what he does best: art-like mini-projects that require more than a sentence to explain. Despite a title that sounds like something dry and conversational and hosted by James Lipton, the 10-episode first season actually showcases Franco & Co. taking a variety of famous scenes from famous movies, mashing them up, and staging the result. The key is that they won’t have total control over what they’ll be enacting.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

‘Playing it Cool’ Trailer: Chris Evans & Anthony Mackie Reunite

12 September 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Over the years there have been many romantic comedies that tried to subvert their own genre – from When Harry Met Sally to No Strings Attached. Despite pages upon pages of wry commentary and gentle mocking of romance tropes, however, even the most meta-humorous of these romcoms have a tendency to snap back into formula by the time they reach their closing chapter. Men and women can be just friends, and they can be just friends with benefits, but not as far as Hollywood is concerned.

The number of well-known romcoms where the guy doesn’t get the girl (or vice versa) can probably be counted on the fingers of one hand, and based on the trailer it doesn’t look like Playing it Cool (formerly titled A Many Splintered Thing), a new romcom starring Chris Evans ...

Revisiting So I Married An Axe Murderer

8 September 2014 1:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One of Mike Myers' lesser-known films, 1993's So I Married An Axe Murderer is well worth revisiting, Aliya writes...

Fear of commitment is one of those topics that pops up a lot in the world of romantic comedies. Jerry Maguire (1996) shows Tom Cruise struggling to say "I love you" in a convincing fashion, and in When Harry Met Sally (1989) Billy Crystal makes terrible excuses to leave early in the morning after each date. Failure To Launch (2006) spelled it out more bluntly than perhaps we needed – in Hollywood, men are afraid of love. Love is a scary business. Even so, it rarely comes with a health warning.

So I Married An Axe Murderer is that rare film. It suggests that the lead character is right to be terrified of commitment. In fact, running away might just save his life. This is a tricky idea to get right, because the audience »

When Harry Met Sally... (1989) Food for Thought

29 August 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Anne Marie here on the 25th anniversary of a genre classic.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that any romcom made after 1989 owes large thematic debts to When Harry Met Sally… From the Meet Cute to the Bickering Couple to the Final Romantic Gesture (usually involving holidays and/or running), When Harry Met Sally… set a template that has defined an entire genre, and--depending on who you ask--killed that genre as well. But despite the cliches, Rob Reiner and Nora Ephron’s Oscar-nominated comedy script continues to sparkle 25 years later, because it is not a movie about romantic gestures. It is a story about people; their observations, their oversights, and most importantly, their food.

Watching When Harry Met Sally… for the first time, you’d be forgiven for thinking New Yorkers do nothing but eat and argue. As Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) meet, separate, meet again, fall into friendship, »

What If Review

21 August 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming from Goon director Michael Dowse, What If (previously titled The F Word) tackles that age old question: can a man and a woman be just friends? When Harry Met Sally asked it, and it was about time it was thrown out into the open again, this time with a witty, yet melancholy, hard candy shell, hiding a gooey romantic comedy at it's centre. When Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), still struggling to get over his break up from a year previously, meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan), he immediately falls for her, but is hampered by the fact that she has a boyfriend, Ben (Rafe Spall). Willing to have nothing to do with her ever again, Wallace finds life doesn't have the same plan, as a random encounter between the pair blossoms into a full blown friendship, with the spectre of their growing mutual attraction to each other looming large in the background. »

Daniel Radcliffe: 'I'd never say never to Harry Potter return'

What If review: Daniel Radcliffe's rom-com with Zoe Kazan

Girls meets When Harry Met Sally in Daniel Radcliffe's latest film What If, a romantic comedy that sees his character Wallace struggle to hide his feelings for pal Chantry (Zoe Kazan).

The film marks a departure for Radcliffe, who in recent years has played a wizard, a widowed lawyer haunted by a woman in black, Allen Ginsberg and a warped version of himself who fires a condom onto Diana Rigg's head in Extras.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Radcliffe confirmed that he recently rejected an approach to reprise his role as Harry Potter for Universal Orlando's theme park, but refused to definitively say "never" about going back to the role.

"I would never say never… the hypothetical thing people come up with is if a book was written one day and the story was continued at an age you were appropriate to do it, »

What If review: Daniel Radcliffe gets trapped in the Friend Zone

20 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Michael Dowse; Screenwriter: Elan Mastai; Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Rafe Spall, Megan Park Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 15

Can men and women ever be 'just friends'? Director Rob Reiner asked the question in 1989 with When Harry Met Sally and we knew the answer then, just as we do from the very beginning of What If. After all, much of the comedy springs like the sweat of desperation from Daniel Radcliffe's brow as he tries to contain his feelings for Zoe Kazan (aka Ruby Sparks), playing the typically cute, clever but kooky heroine who keeps him dangling.

Wallace (Radcliffe) is a med school dropout, which might imply issues around commitment, except that he's split from his long-term college sweetheart and can't get over it. That is until he claps eyes on cartoonist Chantry (Kazan) at one of those cosy, dimly lit parties that only exist »

‘What If’ Press Conference Report

14 August 2014 4:38 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The age-old dilemma: can guys and girls really just be friends, no sexual tension involved. That is just one question Daniel Radcliffe, star of new rom-com What If, tackled at this week’s press conference. Read on for more details.

Question: Were you actively looking for a rom-com. You seem to be someone shifting from genre to genre – were you looking for something to tick off?

Daniel Radcliffe: Yeah, it’s interesting. I was having this conversation with a friend of mine the other day…as actors, the only time we talk about genre is when we’re promoting a film or when we’re talking to journalists, because I don’t think it’s something that factors into my thought process when I’m picking a film. You’re not thinking “Oh, I want to do a romantic comedy, only show me romantic comedies from now on”. You »

Video: A Spa in the N.Y.C. Subway? Improv Everywhere Supplies Some Comedic Relief

11 August 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's sweltering. You're stuck on public transportation. But wait - what's this? A full-service day spa in the middle of the NYC subway system? Improv Everywhere earned internet infamy with flash mob pranks such as the No Pants Subway Ride and When Harry Met Sally in Real Life, both of which made people stop in their tracks to watch something bizarre happen. This time, however, Improv Everywhere is supplying a less abstract public service: relief from the heat. Setting up a pop-up spa on a subway platform where the temperature hovered around a humid 95 degrees, the group filled the station »

Film Review: An Unnatural Approach to Romance in ‘What If’

8 August 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “What If” is a really bad title, but that is the least of the film’s concerns, apparently, as the old can-man-and-women-be-friends canard rears its indecisive but predictable head (snicker). This time it’s interpreted through Harry Potter and Elia Kazan’s granddaughter, if this is to be believed.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Whenever the man and woman friend question pops up in a romantic comedy, it’s almost certain that the couple are made for each other, which makes the exercise in speculating the question futile. The victims in this one are Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan, and they are game to tackle the mush-mouth dialogue, but as it leads to its inevitability, the speeches and banter gets increasingly annoying. This is a new generation “When Harry Met Sally…,” but it finds no new territory in the subject, and chooses to go high concept to make up for its lack of natural authenticity. »

What If Is a Wonderful Millennial Romance

8 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I suppose we’re obligated to refer to What If as a millennial variation on When Harry Met Sally. It too asks, somewhat disingenuously (since the outcome is never really in doubt), whether men and women can be just friends. It too shows two characters dancing around their obvious attraction for each other as things get more and more complicated. It too has its fair share of wiseass snark, though it also has an earnestness that’s all its own — whenever it threatens to break into moments of full-on romantic wish-fulfillment, something pulls it back down to Earth.Despite that title, What If isn’t a fantasy. Rather, let’s call it a romantic daydream — the kind that gets interrupted by the harsh reality of other people. It starts off with a thoroughly plausible meet-cute. Heartbroken med-school dropout Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) and goofy animator Chantry (Zoe Kazan) meet one night »

Exclusive Interview With Zoe Kazan And Michael Dowse On The F Word (aka What If)

7 August 2014 5:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arriving in theatres this week, in the Us at least (in Canada it hits on August 22nd), is The F Word, the new romantic comedy from director Michael Dowse. Titled What If in the states, the film stars Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan as Wallace and Chantry, respectively. The two young adults meet one night and feel an instant chemistry between them, leading to a new friendship. Wallace, having been burnt recently by a particularly bad relationship, is looking for love and falls head over heels for his beautiful new friend. There’s just one problem: Chantry is currently living with her longtime boyfriend.

Charming, clever and full of great performances from the entire cast, The F Word is a thoroughly enjoyable romantic comedy that should definitely please those who have been jaded by the genre lately. Our very own Sam Woolf gave the film a 4/5, saying in his review »

Watch: Life Complicates Love In New Trailer For 'Love, Rosie' Starring Lily Collins And Sam Claflin

7 August 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last month we asked whether or not the rom-com could be saved. 25 years on from "When Harry Met Sally," the genre has become anemic, though there are bright spots, like this weekend's "What If," an imperfect, but still enjoyable attempt to twist the formula (here's our review). And while the upcoming "Love, Rosie" isn't a total reinvention, it does look to at least have a broader scope than most of these kinds of movies usually do. Lily Collins and Sam Claflin star in the film about two British childhood friends who are inseparable, even as they grow into adulthood. School, pregnancy, and other obstacles in this crazy thing called life, find them split apart, though Rosie's torch still burns for her best friend. The problem? He's married, and she's got a child from another man. Can she get back with the person who was right for her all along? You'll »
