    Hollywood's Glass Ceiling: Why Doesn't the Film Industry Trust Women?

    'Monsters University' and 'The Heat' Battle for Top Spot at Lagging Summer Box Office

    The release calendar is crowded, and Friday's numbers show that the intense competition for the top films is not expanding the marketplace. The end result is not the box office bonanza many have been predicting. In fact, the total numbers for the top 10 yesterday fell just under 20% from the same Fr...

    The Heat - Written by Katie Dippold

    Yesterday, I wrote a piece that gave my argument about why you need to go and see The Heat this weekend. What I didn't share since I was embargoed was the fact that I really liked the movie and it made me laugh so hard, harder than I have done in a long, long time.

    Melissa McCarthy came to our collective attention in Paul Feig's “Bridesmaids,” in a supporting role so good that even in a movie full of brilliant, breakout performances, hers was the brilliantest and breakingoutest. Hers was also, in a sense, the most satisfying: suddenly a larger, older actress (...
