Drinking Buddies is part of new modern rom-com that ditches the tropes in hopes of making a great comedy about romance, not a romantic comedy.

Thankfully New Girl, “Neighbors” did not delve further into Jess and Nick’s admission that they are attracted to one another…occasionally.  Maybe the writers can pull this part of the story off this early without becoming clichéd or irritating, but only time will tell.  No mention of one or the other dating

New Girl, “Fluffer” continues this season’s beginning theme of a “new Jess” who can randomly have sex with no emotional attachment.  How long did we really think that would last?  Jess just can’t become another version of the myriad of Sex in the City-esque characters that seem to be everywhere.

Last season’s clear hit was New Girl on Fox. Not only did it have solid ratings throughout, but it continually improved as the season progressed. While Zooey Deschanel is the titualar character, it was when the roommates became full-fledged characters and it functioned more as an ensemble that the show finally hit the high

New Girl is back and is changing things up for Jess, keeping things fresh to start Season Two by throwing her a curve ball of life changing proportions.  Fox was clever about bringing the show back in not one but two installments on the same night, but thirty minutes apart

Safety Not Guaranteed is such a great film! The film got fantastic reviews out of the Sundance Film Festival, which made me very jealous since I wasn’t there to enjoy it. Luckily, it was selected to come to SXSW this year and I was in attendance for that particular festival.

The Safety Not Guaranteed red carpet promised a lot of talented actors, as well as a director and writer that I admire for their concept and ability to bring together an amazing cast, so this was a big deal for me. Never having been on a red carpet before, I assumed that

Day two of SXSW 2012 came and went quite fast. My day was fun-filled with four films total. At SXSW they have these things called SXXpress Pass (pronounced South by Express Pass) that you can get on the day of any particular showing. The box office opens at 9am with

I love the inspiration for Safety Not Guaranteed and that it seems the filmmakers have really managed to take such an odd occurence and use it to create a film with substance and heart.  This film came out of an ad placed in 1997 in Backwoods Home Magazine in which a

I have made it no secret that I am very fickle when it comes to this show and Deschanel’s character.  I really want to like this show, and I hoped that the break would help resuscitate the show after the disappointing Christmas episode, “The 23rd”.  I started last night’s episode, “The
