Addicted to Fresno | Review

But I’m a Sex Addict: Babbitt Returns to Dark Comedy with Mixed Results

Though the film rests rather comfortably on the shoulders of its talented lead actresses, director Jamie Babbit’s latest, Addicted to Fresno, overreaches in its efforts to deliver an endearing yet cynical familial drama about two sisters maturing and growing closer together as they cover up an accidental murder. Written by talented television writer Karey Dornetto (“South Park,” “Portlandia”), here writing her first feature, a number of winning elements are present to constitute a successfully cynical dark comedy, but more often than not, a reliance on too many familiar narrative points tends to mish-mash the highs and lows into a mediocre black comedy. Fans of the notable cast members should find much to appreciate, though one is left with a curiously uninvolved feeling once the credits roll.

Recovering sex addict Shannon (Judy Greer) is having a difficult time staying sex free.

The Woods | Blu-ray Review

Horror director Lucky McKee unfortunately remains one of those unknown, peripheral genre names, mostly thanks to a number of compromised or abandoned projects following his formidable 2002 debut, May. Over the past several years, he’s made headlines for 2011’s The Woman (another underrated gem from his filmography), and most recently the co-directed effort All Cheerleaders Die in 2013, an expansion of his 2001 short film, which is more or less the comically inclined romp you’d assume it to be. Prizing complex female characterizations, usually featuring muse Angela Bettis, McKee’s twisted visions, though few and far between, are enjoyable and entertaining, usually enhanced by a bit of subtext. About a decade ago, McKee’s sophomore feature, The Woods, would finally land on DVD in the Us following a limited festival circuit run, treated to a torturous release platform despite featuring several notable cast members. A period piece set amongst an all-girls

Watch: Judy Greer & Natasha Lyonne in 'Addicted to Fresno' Trailer

"Ya'll ready for this?!" Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for the indie comedy Addicted to Fresno, from filmmaker Jamie Babbit (Breaking the Girls, Itty Bitty Titty Committee). This kooky indie stars Judy Greer & Natasha Lyonne as sisters at a hotel in Fresno, California. When one of them accidentally kills a guy, they go to extreme lengths to cover up the crime. The supporting cast includes Aubrey Plaza, Clea DuVall, Allison Tolman, Ron Livingston, Molly Shannon and Fred Armisen. This looks funny at times, but doesn't seem like anything that stands out in a crowd. At least it's nice to see more of Judy Greer. Here's the official trailer for Jamie Babbit's Addicted to Fresno, found on YouTube (via The Playlist): Synopsis: Two co-dependent sisters, a recovering sex addict and a lonely lesbian (played by Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne) who work as hotel maids, go to ludicrous

Exclusive: Clip From Rom-Com '#Stuck' With Joel David Moore & Madeline Zima Plus New Red Band Trailer

What happens when a one night stand lasts a bit longer than you were expecting? That's the simple idea behind the upcoming comedy "#Stuck," which, as the title implies, finds two people in each other's space for well beyond what they had intended. The partially crowdfunded movie was written and directed by Stuart Acher, stars Joel David Moore ("Avatar," "Shark Night 3D") and Madeline Zima ("Californication," "Breaking The Girls"), and follows a couple whose one evening of passion comes to a grinding halt the next day, when they get stuck in traffic. And as you'll see below in this exclusive clip, it's a scenario that causes the tension to rise between the pair, while right after that, a new Red Band trailer sets the mood for the entire comedy. "#Stuck" opens in theaters and on VOD on October 10th. Watch below.

Review: Sex and Murder Become Dull Bedfellows In Breaking The Girls

Alright Alfred Hitchcock (or Patricia Highsmith) fans, see if you remember this one : Two strangers meet by chance, hit it off and soon realize that each of them has a person in their life that they'd like dead. They get to talking more and realize that if each kills the other's enemy, neither will be suspected and they can both live happily ever after.Yes, we're in Strangers on a Train territory here, only this time, the stranger inciting the murder plot is a rich, hard-partying lesbian, Alex, who seduces a previously straight, financially strapped law student, Sarah. In other words, Breaking the Girls should be sexy, devilish fun -- It takes a classic setup, brings the homoerotic subtext of the original to the surface...

The trailer for Breaking the Girls is like Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train but with bras and panties

  • JoBlo
I had you at bras and panties, didn't I? Breaking The Girls is the latest film from director Jamie Babbit who also directed the cult classic But I'm A Cheerleader. Breaking The Girls doesn't seem to have much of a black comedy feel to it and instead takes the old criss cross plot device from Strangers On A Train and adds a sapphic twist. Madeline Zima (the little girl from The Nanny and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle) is sure to show some major skin in this movie as she has been apt to do...

'But I'm a Cheerleader' Filmmaker Jamie Babbit to Direct Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin's HBO Pilot
Many comedy fans were happy to hear the news last month that former "Fallon" writers Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin were getting a half-hour HBO comedy pilot with Lorne Michaels serving as executive producer. Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the project has a director who's a familiar indie film world name. Jamie Babbit, whose breakout film was 1999's "But I'm a Cheerleader," will helm the still-untitled Atlanta-set pilot, slated to shoot this September. While Babbit's directed several films since "Cheerleader," including 2005's "The Quiet" and 2007 SXSW Competition winner "Itty Bitty Titty Committee," she's been much more active in television, directing episodes of everything from "Gilmore Girls" and "The L Word" to "Drop Dead Diva" and "United States of Tara." Babbit's latest feature, "Breaking the Girls," premiered at Frameline last month (where she also received the 2013 Frameline Award) and is getting a theatrical and VOD release from IFC...

Good morning!

If you're a fan of horor films like I am, then you might already be planning on seeing the Evil Dead remake. Well it appears there is a very bloody lesbian kiss in the film, which you can see at the end of this video. Horrifying!

Erin McKeown is blogging about music this week for Wnyc's Soundcheck.

New York magazine interviewed Dana Rudolph of Mombian.com, saying lesbian mommy blogs are all the rage. Well I guess if they say so! Dana's been at it for years, so she noted the biggest change she's seen since she started blogging:

In general, there's a lot more visibility for Lgbt families both within the gay media and also in the mainstream media. Even mainstream parenting sites usually have at least one Lgbt blogger who writes for them now,
