Rob Reiner’s incredible directing hot streak

Simon Brew Nov 30, 2016

From Spinal Tap and The Princess Bride to Misery and A Few Good Men: we revisit director Rob Reiner's incredible hot streak...

On the rare occasions where we’re let out of our shed, and allowed to go and sit in places that serve beverages, the topic of conversation has a habit of veering towards movies. One regular subject is directing hot streaks. That is the filmmakers who had a run of terrific movie after terrific movie. Within half a pint of shandy and some slightly dated crisps, one name has inevitably been cited: Rob Reiner.

With good reason, too. Many directors have hot streaks. What was incredible about the run of films that Reiner enjoyed between 1984 and 1994 was that the films not only enjoyed acclaim, but they tended to be successful too. Furthermore, Reiner wasn’t tying himself to an individual genre. He zipped »

The Ultimate Rom-Com Showdown: Why When Harry Met Sally Is Still the Best Ever

23 November 2016 5:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Annie Hall. Harold and Maude. Pretty Woman. Manhattan. What do all those movies have in common? Women in fashion vests, for one. But they are also widely agreed up on as part of the upper echelon of romantic comedies. The actual order of ranking is a topic up for discussion—and, let's be honest, argument—and will probably never be settled. But movies of this caliber are solid in their quality and their longstanding fandom. But, we're here to bring a little certitude to this space. We're here to say something...drastic. Overreaching. Unfeigned. We're here to announce once and for all that When Harry Met Sally is the best romantic comedy of all time.  We'll let the »

‘Good Girls Revolt’ Spotlights the Real-Life Women Who Fought for Newsroom Equality

31 October 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s no coincidence that Amazon released its period drama “Good Girls Revolt,” about 1960s-era female employees seeking equality in the newsroom, less than two weeks before Election Day. Although the feminist-friendly series is set over 40 years ago, the issues its characters rally behind are still as relevant today – and, in fact, have been a key part of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign platform.

“[Amazon] immediately knew that they wanted to market it before the election, that it would be the Year of the Woman, that Hillary would be running,” executive producer Lynda Obst told IndieWire earlier this summer.

All In The Family at 45: The Show That Couldn’t Be Made Today

16 October 2016 6:51 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 45 years ago, one of the most divisive shows ever made debuted and became the biggest hit of the 1970s. All In The Family hit the airwaves in 1971 and created a maelstrom of controversy. The non-pc humor of the show would never be tolerated today. However, was the show really racially insensitive or was it just using humor to cast some light on the ignorance and prejudices of the world? 

 Based on the Brit-com Till Death Do Us Part (which had debuted in 1965), the CBS series All In The Family (1971-1979) was a no-holds barred sitcom about working-class bigot Archie Bunker, an unapologetic racist, homophobic, sexist lout from Astoria, NY. Archie had an opinion on everything, and never failed to offend everyone. The character used inflammatory, non-pc language on a weekly basis. He regularly squared off with his liberal Democrat son-in law Mike in heated arguments about minorities, immigrants, women, non-Christians »

'Awards Chatter' Podcast — Rob Reiner ('Lbj')

19 September 2016 6:11 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

"A man and a number — if you don't have that [in your title], and you're not making an R-rated sex comedy, then they don't want it," cracks Rob Reiner, the star of All in the Family (1971-1979) who went on to direct the instant-classics This Is Spinal Tap (1984), Stand by Me (1986), The Princess Bride (1987), When Harry Met Sally... (1989), Misery (1990), A Few Good Men (1992) and The American President (1995). These days, not even someone with a track record like Reiner's can easily secure financing and distribution for a passion project,

Rob Reiner on Trump, Rebelling Against Father Carl and Why He Won't Go Into Film Remakes

8 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Back in 1966, exactly 50 years ago, Rob Reiner, then a student at UCLA, formed a comedy troupe, The Session, with his pals Richard Dreyfuss and Larry Bishop (Joey Bishop's kid) and officially entered show business. But it wasn't a leap. As the son of Carl Reiner, he already had Hollywood in his genes. Now a partner in Castle Rock Entertainment, which has produced hits from When Harry Met Sally … to Seinfeld, the politically engaged Reiner, 69, will unveil Lbj, his 19th feature as a director, in Toronto.

Queen Sugar

September 6, 2016 on Own

What Is It? Ava DuVernay has teamed with Oprah for this series about a family reunited by tragedy in Louisiana, and she’s brought with her an entirely female director roster (a first).

I’ll Like It If I Like… Stories set in the South, stories that feature strong female characters and stories that aren’t afraid of taking on big issues head-on.

Why Should I Care? “Queen Sugar” has its flaws, but there’s some rich filmmaking on display and there’s potential for growth with these characters.

Harry Connick Jr. Takes His Southern Charm and Wit to Daytime TV

31 August 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whenever Harry Connick Jr.’s name popped up on the guest list for “The Late Show With David Letterman,” Eric and Justin Stangel didn’t worry about that night’s show.

The brothers — head writers for “The Late Show” for 17 years — knew that Connick was money as a guest. He was a favorite of Letterman’s because he was funny, fearless, and fast on his feet. The New Orleans native proved a natural raconteur who could effortlessly roll with whatever Letterman tossed at him over 21 appearances between 1993 and 2014.

Starting Sept. 12, those qualities will get a workout from the other side of the desk when Connick debuts as host of “Harry,” a syndicated daytime series that he promises will be unlike any other hour on television. The Stangel brothers developed the show with Connick, and the three share executive producer credit.

In the estimation of one who knows what it takes to last as a TV host, connick »

There’s Something About Rom-Coms review – this isn't The One

22 August 2016 12:23 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The only real chemistry in Channel 4’s take on straight, white people falling in love was that between talking heads Hugh Grant and Richard Curtis. Plus, Posh Pawn returns

If there is anything more boring than actors saying nice things about other actors, I have yet to be subjected to it. There was quite a lot of that in Channel 4’s There’s Something About Rom-Coms .

There is a definitive documentary to be made on the history and development of romcoms – and what they say about the relationships of their eras – but, like a disappointing love affair, this was not The One. There were brief mentions of films such as Bringing Up Baby and Some Like It Hot, before heading straight to When Harry Met Sally. Annie Hall was dumped.

Emmy Nonfiction Contenders: Portraits of the Artist, from Nora Ephron to Nina Simone

17 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Watching “Everything Is Copy” (HBO), on the life of Nora Ephron, it’s clear that the late writer and filmmaker was willing to use, and to massage, the truth. Of the narrator’s hamster-loving first husband, in her 1983 novel “Heartburn,” Ephron’s own ex-, Dan Greenberg, says the strange trait is an invention; of 1989’s “When Harry Met Sally…” the screenwriter admits that Meg Ryan’s cheerful, high-strung co-lead is based “more or less” on herself. As New Yorker editor David Remnick remarks of Ephron’s inimitable essays, “her voice in print really replicated her voice—almost—in life.”

Indeed, in “Everything Is Copy,” as in the other films nominated for Outstanding Documentary/Nonfiction Special at this year’s Emmys, the subject’s work inhabits this space between the dashes, the “almost” and the “more or less.” It’s where the biographical blurs into the fictional, where fact and craft diverge. »

‘Little Men’ Review: Ira Sachs’ Smallest Movie Might Also Be His Best

3 August 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It takes 12 minutes and 23 seconds to run from Jake’s apartment to Tony’s, but there’s an entire world in the space between their two Brooklyn homes. Thirteen-year-old Jake (a sensitive and severely empathetic Theo Taplitz) is a white fourth or fifth generation American kid whose grandfather — the longtime owner of a small apartment building — has just passed away. Tony (Michael Barbieri, a pint-sized Robert De Niro) is the son of a Chilean immigrant, and his mother — a sharp seamstress played by “Gloria” star Paulina García — has rented the retail space on the ground floor of that same apartment building for as long as anyone can remember.

For years, the two families of these new friends have lived in harmony, but the times they are a-changin.’ And when Jake’s father (Greg Kinnear), a struggling actor, inherits the real estate and insists that his tenants actually begin paying their full rent, »

‘Stand by Me’ Oral History: Rob Reiner and Cast on River Phoenix and How Coming-of-Age Classic Almost Didn’t Happen

28 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s been three decades since “Stand By Me” became the little drama that could, catapulting River Phoenix to stardom, establishing Rob Reiner as a director on the rise, and racking up big ticket sales on a paltry budget.

The story of four friends from small town in Oregon, hiking into the countryside in search of the body of a boy who has been hit and killed by a train, is an unlikely coming-of-age tale. Yet in Reiner’s sensitive hands, it becomes a meditation on mortality — one that transcends its 1950s setting to have a universal appeal.

Stand By Me” is unique in other ways. For one thing, it rivals “The 400 Blows” in its ability to evoke complex characterizations from young actors. Not only Phoenix as spiritual leader Chris Chambers, but co-stars Wil Wheaton as sensitive Gordie Lachance, Jerry O’Connell as wisecracking Vern Tessio, and Corey Feldman as hot-tempered Teddy Duchamp, »

Meg Ryan’s directorial debut Ithaca gets a trailer and poster

27 July 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After working in Hollywood for over three decades, primarily as an actress, Meg Ryan has finally decided to take a step behind the camera to make her directorial debut with Ithaca, an adaptation of William Saroyan’s 1943 book The Human Comedy. The first trailer and new poster for the film have been released and can both be seen below…

Ryan rose to fame in the mid-to-late 80s with roles in such now-classics as Top Gun and When Harry Met Sally and continued her success in the 90s with Sleepless in SeattleCourage Under Fire and You’ve Got Mail. Her most famous performances are generally considered to be those alongside Tom Hanks, who, as a matter of fact, has a role in the film. Those expecting to see a lot of Hanks when they go to the theaters should temper their expectations, however, as he is only briefly in the »

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

17 July 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life. »
