    Why 'Mean Girls' Still Resonates 10 Years Later

    Ten years ago tomorrow, a modestly-budgeted female-led high-school comedy opened across the U.S. Based on the debut feature script from a “Saturday Night Live” writer, adapted from a non-fiction self-help book, starring a coterie of largely unknown faces, and centering on a Disney contract player wh...

    10 Comic Actresses Who Deserve A Big-Screen Leading Role

    Happily, we can say something in 2014 that we haven't been able to for a long while: it's a good time for comedy actresses in movies. What once was a barren, bromance-filled wasteland, has filled up somewhat with the success of "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat," among others, convincing studio executives...

    10 Great Overlooked Films From The 1970s

    'The Other Woman' Alternatives: 5 Female-Led Comedies You May Not Have Seen

    This weekend, "The Other Woman," directed by Nick Cassavetes and starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, comes to theaters. With a plot like a played-for-laughs "Les Diaboliques" (1955)—hey, wasn't that "Diabolique" (1996)?—or an aged-down "First Wives Club," or an aged-up "John Tucker M...

    10 One-Man Show Movies

    If there's any justice in the world, many of you will spend 85 minutes of your upcoming weekend in a car with Tom Hardy. "Locke," the formally-rigorous, real-time Steven-Knight-directed film opens on Friday, and it's terrific: a taut drama that unfolds like a thriller despite being a small, detail-s...

    15 Cinematographers Turned Directors

    This weekend, the Johnny Depp-starring “Transcendence” opens in all its technophobic glory, across the nation, and while the reviews, ours included, so far, have ranged from mildly poisonous to all-out toxic, the proof will as ever be in the box office pudding.
