It’s Time for TV Rom-Coms

18 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

FX's new comedy You're the Worst is about two awful shitbags who kind of fall in love. He's a British writer with a serious immaturity problem; she's a publicist to the stars, with a deep fear of commitment. They meet at a wedding and, as it often does, the misanthropy leads to festive boning. Maybe we're so wrong for each other that it's almost right, they decide. It's a rom-com setup, vaguely reminiscent of a Friends With Benefits kind of idea, but it's also surprisingly fun and sexy. It has a strong cynical side, but that's tempered by an overwhelming sense of romance. These two crazy kids are gonna make a go of things! I'm genuinely rooting for them, partially because I'm a softie and partially because the leads' chemistry is fantastic, but mostly because I want You're the Worst to kick off an era of TV romance.

'You're the Worst' gives the rom-com formula a mild case of crabs

17 July 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Suggested alternate title: Love in the Time of Cynicism.

From the moment you see Jimmy Shive-Overly (Chris Geere) taking pictures of his junk during a wedding toast, it’s pretty clear You’re the Worst doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. To wit, Jimmy is mid-waltz with the bride—his ex—when he informs her he’s only come to her wedding to gawk at the imminent “disaster” of love and marriage.

The surly new half-hour rom-com from Stephen Falk (Orange Is the New Black) presents a challenge for itself by offering up a character like Jimmy as its entrée into the series. »

Mistresses Recap: Psychiatrist Walks Into a Bar...

23 June 2014 8:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

An all-important, brand-spankin’-new fifth lead character arrived on the scene during tonight’s installment of Mistresses. That she did so in a slinky black dress, with a fresh glass of chardonnay (in. her. hand.), lies slipping off her tongue and a hint of danger in her eyes makes said arrival a cause for celebration. So let’s give a slow clap for (and raise a glass of, well, anything to)… Jennifer!

Deutschmarks or dollars… American Express will do nicely, thank you!

Wait, I take back that Tina Turner lyric. I don’t mean to make light of Karen Kim’s pain, »

‘What If’ Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan Are ‘Just Friends’

29 May 2014 3:35 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

One of the problems with romantic comedies that ask questions like “Can men and women just be friends?” or “Can friends have sex without it becoming romantic?” is that, no matter how subversive things might get along the way, the answer is almost always “No.” Movies like Friends With Benefits, When Harry Met Sally and No Strings Attached have tried to break the mold, but ultimately Hollywood romantic comedies always end up gravitating towards a happy ending where the couple falls into each other’s arms.

It would be nice to think that What If - a new romantic comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks) – will have the guts to break this pattern. Based on the new trailer, however, it seems likely to follow a more traditional formula. Radcliffe plays Wallace, ...

The Sun Comes Out In The New Annie Trailer

15 April 2014 2:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, you might be forgiven for feeling a serious case of remake-fatigue. It seems every other film these days is a re-boot or a re-imagining of some beloved classic or other, with very little in the way of originality on display. With the release of its new trailer, however, it seems that it would be inadvisable to dismiss the upcoming new adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, Annie, as one of those tedious revisits. This one actually looks kind of awesome.

Annie is a comic book character. Well, a comic strip character, to be exact. Created by Harold Gray in his ‘Little Orphan Annie’ comic strip which debuted in August 1924, Annie was first adapted for radio in 1931, while David O Selznick produced a film adaptation for Rko in 1932. It was not until 1977 that Annie made her first ever appearance on Broadway, however – with its now iconic musical format »

'The Vampire Diaries': Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder tease Damon and Elena's 'friends with benefits' experiment and more

27 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Even though Elena and Damon tried to break up at the end of last week's episode of "The Vampire Diaries," it's pretty safe to say that it didn't stick seeing as how the two vampires fell right back into bed with each other the next second. The biggest question on everyone's mind: Is Delena broken up or back together?

Neither, it would seem. That's right, Elena and Damon are going to try being friends with benefits, although "Tvd" star Ian Somerhalder doesn't have the highest of hopes for that experiment. "Friends with benefits never ultimately work," Somerhalder tells Zap2it. "They are wonderful for a spell. But hey, you never know."

His co-star Nina Dobrev feels the same way. "Well, we've all seen the movie 'Friends With Benefits' with Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake, right?" Dobrev tells Zap2it. "Everyone always goes into that whole arrangement with optimistic »
