Big Stone Gap - Trailer


In the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia lies a blue-collar coal-mining town called Big Stone Gap, full of hard-workers and morally upstanding citizens. Ave Maria Mulligan isn't getting any younger, but she's no qualms about living life as a spinster while working at the local pharmacy. She has plenty of friends and more than enough stability, but all that's about to change with the death of her mother. She discovers secrets she never knew about her family, including the truth about her Italian father who she's determined to travel to Europe to visit. Then out of nowhere her only love interest wants to marry her, but she's not sure if she's ready for that. This woman has enough on her plate to keep her busy, but she's really got to think about what she wants from her life now.

1600 Penn Premiere: You're Not Going To Laugh Very Much


Bill Pullman Jenna Elfman Josh Gad

Bull Pullman's new political drama 1600 Penn premieres on NBC tonight (December 18, 2012) and the first reviews have begun trickling in. The Independence Day actor plays the President of the United States, while Jenna Elfman plays his wife, the First Lady. Critics haven't exactly jumped for joy after watching the pilot, though Pullman fans shouldn't despair, there looks to be more to 1600 Penn than meets eye.

Entertainment Weekly has seen a handful of the first series and despite beginning its review with, "Here's the thing: You're not going to laugh very much, I'm guessing, at the 1600 Penn that premieres tonight," quickly adds, "But the show gets better; by the third episode, I liked the characters and I was laughing." The problem lies in the fact that masses of viewers probably aren't going to tune in for the first two episodes over the Christmas period - 1600 Penn could sink without trace. Though Pullman is the big draw, it's the performance of Josh Gad as the First Lady's stepson that appears to be winning all the plaudits. The American actor was lauded for his role in Broadway's The Book of Mormon and seems to be a natural when it comes to comedic timing. 

The Hollywood Reporter disagreed that it takes 1600 Penn three episodes to find its feet, saying, "By the second episode, 1600 Penn neatly has found its compass on how to be a show about the first family and how to define the ensemble." The San Francisco Chronicle almost avoided the predictable comparison to Armando Iannucci's Veep, saying, "1600 Penn may not be as sophisticated as the hysterical HBO series 'Veep,' but it's still pretty funny when all the cylinders are firing." The Boston Globe offered a similar review of the show, saying, "Then the second episode, and then the third, come along, and 1600 Penn evolves into a surprisingly likable single-camera comedy."

‘Not A Political Show’ - Bill Pullman Stars In White House Comedy '1600 Penn'


Bill Pullman Jenna Elfman

1600 Penn may be set in the most famous residence in the US – The White House – but the show’s cast and producers have insisted that it’s not a political show. ‘How on earth can a show set in The White House NOT be political?’ you may well ask… well, according to the show’s co-creator Josh Gad, it’s all about the family that live there and the pressures that they’re under, trying to live their life under the intense glare of the media.

“It’s absolutely, absolutely not a political show, and I can’t emphasize that enough,” Gad told the Washington Post, who continued “We never set out to make a political show. . . . We wanted to make a show about a family that happens to live in a world where they are surrounded by politics.” Instead of a strong political bent, what you get is a comedy based on a dysfunctional family – brought to you by Modern Family’s Jason Winer, Men of a Certain Age’s Mike Royce and Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for President Obama, just in case you were worried that the reality of life in the White House would be completely overlooked in the pursuit of a cheap laugh.

1600 Penn will star Bill Pullman as the president and Jenna Elfman as his wife and step-mom to his kids (much of the comedy will come from Elfman trying to win her step-kids affections, it would seem). The pilot airs Monday, December 17, 2012 at 9:30pm on NBC and the official series will run on Thursdays at 9:30pm, from January 10, 2013.

Friends With Benefits Review


Good
A smart, witty script and a likable cast help overcome the deep-seated rom-com cliches the filmmakers set out to deconstruct. But the central couple's strong chemistry and a stream of lively side characters keep us involved and entertained.

After a humiliating breakup, Dylan (Timberlake) meets with high-achieving headhunter Jamie (Kunis) about a new job. Friendship blossoms, and since Jamie is emotionally damaged after a recent split and Dylan is emotionally unavailable, they decide to sleep together without any deeper attachment.

Meanwhile, they get increasingly involved in each others' lives, most notably as Dylan and his sister (Elfman) cope with their senile father (Jenkins). Of course, the main question is whether Dylan and Jamie can remain friends even if they have sex.

Obsessed (2002) Review


Good
A quarter century ago, John Badham was directing classics like Saturday Night Fever and WarGames. It's a tragedy, then, to find him directing made for TV movies these days -- for Lifetime, no less.

At least he's got the comely Jenna Elfman on his side in this true crime drama, which thank God is not nearly as horrible as you might be expecting. The pitch: He (Charles Powell) is a fancy pants doctor and says she's been stalking him mercilessly. She (Elfman) says they had a long-term relationship and she just got a little upset there at the end.

Cyberworld Review


Extraordinary
The critique of an IMAX film defies many of the standards against which traditional films are judged, if only because no IMAX picture to date has attempted anything like real storytelling (aside from maybe Wings of Courage, but that's another story). Nevertheless, these are films and it is our responsibility to give them our earnest criticism.

CyberWorld, brought to us in large part by the good people at Intel, is a lush visual trip in the spirit of The Mind's Eye and Beyond the Mind's Eye. In fact, some of the content appears to have been lifted directly out of these films.

Looney Tunes: Back In Action Review


Bad
There's a scene near the end of Joe Dante's Looney Tunes movie where a beleaguered Wile E. Coyote ends up behind the wheel of a locomotive that's loaded to the gills with dynamite. Seconds before an explosion reduces him to a smoldering pile of ashes for the umpteenth time, he holds up a sign that reads, "They don't pay me enough."

My sentiments exactly, pal. The Federal Reserve couldn't pay you enough to sit through Technicolor gobbledygook like this. Dante has a technical feat on his hand, crafting a vigorous cartoon hybrid that seamlessly merges beloved Warner Bros. animated characters with unlucky C-list actors who apparently made their agents very angry and are being punished.
