A TV producer recently contacted me because he's supposedly a big fan and thought I'd be great to pitch a show with. He warned me that I wouldn't make that much money directly off the show.

In fact, that should be prohibited by law! After the two hour mark, even the greatest triumph of cinema (save for Gone With The Wind) begins to grate on your nerves like a party date who won't shut up. I mean, did The Karate Kid really have to weigh in at 2 hours and freakin' 20 minutes?
Federal law gives gay citizens with foreign partners tough choices: Leave the U.S. Lose your love. Break the law.
The Sex and the City 2 gals couldn't exactly be made to romp around the economic ravages of America. That wouldn't be all that appealing. So the sequel sends them to Abu Dhabi!

If you're the kind of person who sometimes asks themselves why some people hate Sex and the City so much, you are either (A) not living in New York or (B) one of the imported creatures or various changes in New York City that Sex and the City is responsible for. Well, in the new movie, Carrie ... More >>
• Poor Fergie gets only $21K a year from her ex husband Prince Andrew and really may not have a "bean to her name." Not that that excuses anything.
Eat their hearts out. More cupcake madness... Forget that you can't walk into a certain kind of bar without being offered a SATC2 Cosmo these days.

Sex and the City author Candance Bushnell has completely fortified herself from criticism, not by hiding behind her endless stacks of money, but by writing in the voice of a teenager.

I went to the cineplex to see a remake last night and got treated to trailers for a whole other bunch of remakes. Hollywood is clearly repeating more than a cheap burrito. There was a trailer for another Karate Kid, this time with Jackie Chan serving the chop socky and chop suey.
