‘Isn’t It Romantic’ Review: A Clever and Charming Rom-Com Parody With a Wonderful Rebel Wilson Performance

“This is like The Matrix for lonely women,” retorts Natalie, the clever lead of the affable new romantic-comedy spoof Isn’t It Romantic . The “this” in question is the inexplicable alternate universe in which Natalie finds herself, a version of New York City that’s straight out of the romantic-comedy playbook. Isn’t It Romantic isn’t the first film-length parody of rom-coms, nor is it the sharpest or wittiest, but the film’s ebullience and the sheer charm offensive courtesy of lead ac...

Netflix's 'Russian Doll' creators have ideas for multiple seasons of the hit series

"Russian Doll" co-creators Natasha Lyonne and Leslye Headland told The Hollywood Reporter that they originally pitched the series as three seasons. They said they have ideas for a potential season two, but aren't sure if it would continue Nadia's story, or follow another character. Netflix's "Russian Doll" is the streamer's latest critically acclaimed series with a 100% Rotten Tomatoes critic score after debuting on Friday. It would be surprising if Netflix didn't renew the series, and if it ...

27 Galentine's Day Gifts To Get Your Inner Circle

Valentine's Day is one of those things, like sushi or Pete Davidson, that you either love or really hate — for good reason. If you're blissfully matched, February 14th is an excuse to get dressed up, drink a little too much Champagne and pull out that sexy little lingerie set you got on markdown during one of last month's Boxing Day sale s. But, if you're not romantically attached, it can be kind of cringey. Or rather, it was, until people (a.k.a. the writers behind Parks and Recreation) wised...

Netflix's new hit show 'Russian Doll' started with a phone call from Amy Poehler 7 years ago

Netflix's "Russian Doll" co-creator and star Natasha Lyonne told E! News that the concept for the series began with a phone call from Amy Poehler seven years ago. "Any chance to get to mind meld with Amy is something I can't even believe is an option in this life," she said. Lyonne added that the series had an all-women writers' room, and that is feels like a four-hour movie more than a TV series. Netflix's latest hit series, "Russian Doll," has been seven years in the making. Star and co-cre...

As ‘Broad City’ Ends, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer Preview Their Big Plans for the Future

Ten years ago, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer wrote themselves a web series about their close friendship and the glorious paradox of being dirtbag ladies in New York City. With Jacobson playing the game Mary Tyler Moore character to Glazer’s wilder Rhoda, “Broad City” was frank, incisive and, most of all, funny as hell. But […]

TV Review: ‘Russian Doll’

This is a particularly tricky review to write, but not because the merits of “Russian Doll” are at all ambiguous. On the contrary, the show is so striking and smart that I made a note to include it on my favorite TV shows of 2019 immediately after blowing through the season — which is saying […]

‘Russian Doll’ Trailer: Natasha Lyonne Gets Her Own ‘Groundhog Day’ with a Lethally Clumsy Twist

Groundhog Day is the cornerstone of movies that repeat a certain event over and over again. Movies like Source Code, Edge of Tomorrow, Happy Death Day and more have run with the formula and put fun twists on it. But we’ve rarely seen that formula applied to an entire series (ABC’s canceled Day Break comes to mind), and now it’s Netflix’s turn to take a crack at reliving the say day over and over again. Russian Doll is a new Netflix comedy series co-created by Orange is the New Black star Natash...

These Are the 2018 TV Shows and Movies With 100% Rotten Tomatoes Scores

Universal acclaim is hard to come by. Even the most beloved film or TV show will have a few detractors.

As 2018 draws to a close, here are the handful of this year’s lucky TV shows and movies with 100% Rotten Tomatoes scores. Before we dive into this, a disclaimer: not every critic is on Rotten Tomatoes. In fact, there are many arts critics who aren’t accredited to the...

In a Dark Year, 2018’s Film and Television Made the Case for Kindness and Decency

You don’t need me to tell you that 2018, like 2017, has been a uniquely dark time. (Well, you shouldn’t need me to tell you that.) One purpose of an entertainment website, and indeed popular culture in general, is to provide a distraction from or a refraction of the world at large. But as that world grows grimmer, it’s unsurprising to see a lot of popular culture that serves as a funhouse-mirror version of our world’s grimness. I mention this not because I want to wallow in that grimness; inst...

If you somehow got your hands on an original pressing of their first single “Cooky Puss”—released in 1981 when the then-foursome was a New York hardcore band—congratulations, you’re a legend. If you first bought 1986’s Licensed to Ill—their major label debut and coming-out as a crude rap-rock parody threesome (minus fired drummer Kate Schellenbach), precision-engineered to freak your parents out—congrats...
