    AFI Picks Top TV Shows and Films of the Year

    This list reminds me that even though they have been upteen articles about how women are making great strides, there is still such a long way to go, because as I look at the lists I notice that there are very few female directors and creators.

    Bridesmaids is a Big Fat Hit!

    Women took up the mantle and went to see the film. The gross was about $24.5 (UPDATE - $26.2) million about $10 million more than predicted. I don't know who does the predicting on these types of films but they missed the boat on this one big time. I know they wanted to keep expectations down because the mantra was (and seems always is with a film about women) that this is unprecedented and there is nothing to compare it to. I'd like to now retire these delusional thoughts. Women have starred in successful franchises, action movies and comedies. Maybe we just need to start keeping our own statistics to help people out.

    In Praise of Melissa McCarthy

    I finally saw Bridesmaids last night. LOVED IT. Will have a longer piece later this week, but I wanted to single out Melissa McCarthy for a gush of love immediately. She almost stole the movie from Kristen Wiig. Almost, but not quite. I was so impressed with how they handled the different chara...

    Why Bridesmaids Matters

    This feels like another cultural watershed moment for women on screen. A big studio comedy that is about women. We all know the difficulties women in comedy have faced. Gone are the days of Goldie Hawn and Madeline Kahn and Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin. Women who were allowed to be stars and all...

    Trailer Alert: Bridesmaids (The Dirty Version)

    2 more weeks until Bridesmaids. I'm going to see it next week and I am psyched. This has potential cross over for male and female audiences. Here's what Russ Fischer said on /Film: "This movie is great. It’s my favorite comedy of the year without any competition at all."

    This film is shaping up to be the one of the movies I am most looking forward to seeing this year. Now I know that it is a movie about a wedding, and I have said that I would be perfectly fine with my life never seeing another wedding movie EVER, but this report from Jen Yamato at Cinematical/Movie...
