7) Confessions of a Shopaholic
6) Definitely, Maybe
5) He's Just Not That Into You
4) Made of Honor

"Parks and Recreation"

Tonight at 8:30, NBC will finally premiere the long awaited semi-spinoff of The Office, Parks and Recreation, starring Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones. Even though the show has been getting some mixed reviews, I will definitely be tuning in, if just to see Amy Poehler on my television screen again. Hopefully, Parks and Recreation will be the next great sitcom and not just a poor-man's version of The Office.
Check out one of the promos below, and tune in tonight to see if the show will be any good:


Mike Judge of Office Space fame has a new movie coming out on September 4th called Extract. The newly-released trailer looks really funny, and gives movie goers another opportunity to see Mila Kunis in a movie role after her great performance in last Spring's brilliant Forgetting Sarah Marshall, as well as Ben Affleck playing a stoner dude. Oh yeah, the always lovable Jason Bateman stars, too. Check out the teaser trailer and see if the film will be as enjoyable as Office Space.

The Real Life Gossip Girl

Earlier in the year, Bravo announced that they were creating a reality show (in the same vein as their hit, The Real Housewives of Orange County) about the fabulous lives' of New York City's most lavish teenagers. Sound familiar? Newly dubbed NYC Prep, this reality show will follow the fascinating lives of several rich teenagers, a la Gossip Girl. Will this show be good TV? Will it be bad TV? Will it be good bad TV? I'm thinking the latter...

A Rugrats Passover

In honor of the Passover holiday, here's a link to watch the Rugrats Passover episode, in its entirety. While I may have gone to Hebrew School for many years, I probably learned more about the Jews and Pharaoh from Grandpa Boris' classic retelling. Enjoy!

"Britney: For The Record"

A few months ago, MTV aired a documentary entitled Britney:For The Record that detailed the day to day life of Britney Spears from the MTV Video Music Awards in August to the eventual filming of her music video, Womanizer, in late September. Though the documentary was not supposed to make you sympathize with Britney, it was supposed to make you understand what her life is like nowadays. Viewers were able to see that Britney was on the road to recovery and more ready than she had ever been for a comeback. This deleted scene from the DVD of Britney: For The Record (out now) shows a tender moment in which Britney is finally able to drive her car again. Let's hope Britney stays healthy and keeps on making good music, folks!

Please Let This Be True!

Mad Men is by far one my favorite shows, so after reading that Lionsgate has trademarked this television show to make into a video game, I was excited, to say the least. Some possible challenges:
1) Smoke as many cigarettes as you can in the allotted time
2) Drink as many drinks as you can in the allotted time
3) Talk down to as many women as you possibly can in the allotted time
4) Bitch slap Pete Campbell for money to buy cigarettes and liquor.


This Saturday, Zac Efron will be hosting Saturday Night Live with musical guest The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Take a look at this promo NBC just released and let's hope we get some good High School Musical parodies:

Eli's Sexy Daisies

ABC just announced that it will, in fact, be airing the final episodes of Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty, Sexy, Money this summer. Beginning on May 20th, ABC will air the remaining episodes of those shows that were canceled way too prematurely. Though I never watched Eli Stone or Dirty, Sexy, Money, Pushing Daisies was easily one of my favorite shows on television--until it was canceled, that is. Pushing Daisies (which starred Lee Pace and Anna Friel) was a quirky television show that combined both the elements of fantasy, humor, satire and drama, all in a Tim Burton-esque fashion. Pushing Daisies was a gem that will be greatly missed.
This scene of supporting character Olive Snook (brilliantly played by Kristin Chenoweth) performing her own rendition of "Hopelessly Devoted To You" is just one of the reasons why I loved this show so much:

Observe and Blog

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend an advanced screening of Seth Rogen's new movie, Observe and Report. While I definitely thought the movie had some pretty funny moments (Anna Faris as blonde bimbo Brandy was hysterical), I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed. The movie was a lot darker than I had expected, and the random violent action scenes seemed a little displaced. But after reading Lisa Scwarzbaum's extremely positive review of the film in this week's Entertainment Weekly, I might have to see it again. The trailer, as well as a great interview with Seth Rogen in which he compares Observe and Report to a comedic Scorsese movie, are posted below:
