    The Playlist's 15 Favorite Movie Dance-Offs

    As we embark on another awards pre-season, and anticipate the legions of “For Your Consideration”-style advertising we have to look forward to over the coming months, we felt it an opportune moment to highlight a film that is unlikely to be figuring largely in those conversations: this week’s “Battl...

    Review: 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Is A Pained, Unfunny, Politically Questionable Bore

    One of the "charmingly neurotic" tics of the main character of "I Don't Know How She Does It," played brittlely and with affected strain by Sarah Jessica Parker, is making to-do lists. Since the year is 2011 and editing software has come a long way, we see her visualize the list as the prepares for sleep – everything from arranging her daughter's play date to doing some Kegel exercises (yes, seriously) – with words and small images appearing tattooed on the ceiling of her bohemian chic Boston apartment (accompanied by a never-ending stream of voice-over narration). While watching "I Don't Know How She Does It," which at a swift 89 minutes sti...

    Naomi Watts Looks Dowdy In First Look Photo From Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar'

    Plus New Photos Of Sarah Jessica Parker, Lea Michele & Sofia Vergara In 'New Year's Eve'We suppose she wasn't meant to be glamorous or pretty in this picture. WB has released a first look photo of Naomi Watts in Clint Eastwood's biopic "J. Edgar" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and the actress looks positively dowdy and frumpy. That's by design. She's playing Helen Gandy, a Justice Department file clerk who ended up being Hoover’s personal secretary. Not the sexiest role in the film, though in one version of Dustin Lance Black's screenplay, if we recall correctly, there is one brief sequence where she and Hoover attempt to go out on a date, which...

    Aline Brosh McKenna To Adapt Graphic Novel 'Rust' For 20th Century Fox

    There are quite a few screenwriters that we here at The Playlist think are incredibly overrated. Someone like Allan Loeb ("21," "The Switch") comes to mind, but Aline Brosh McKenna wouldn't be far behind him. She's a rom-com writing star, penning films like "27 Dresses" and "Morning Glory," though s...

    Watch: Sarah Jessica Parker In 'I Don't Know How She Does It' Trailer. We Don't Know How We Did It.

    A few weeks back, "Bridesmaids" struck something of a blow for the female-fronted comedy, by doing what so few have in recent years, and remembering to be funny and touching while failing to be patronizing, unpleasant, one-dimensional and misogynistic in its depiction of its characters. Did it mark an opening of the floodgates? After all, the film's breakout star Melissa McCarthy, not exactly your traditional female lead, has already landed a starring role in a new project, while the more imminent films in the same genre, projects like "Bad Teacher" and "What's Your Number," seem to give some reason for optimism. Were the days of the mind-mel...
