8 Life Lessons From Romantic Comedies

The Princess Bride A rich woman (Robin Wright) wants to marry a poor man (Cary Elwes). In order to do so, the woman makes the man go on a crazy adventure to get money.

Which Best Part Of 'Love Actually' Is Actually The Best?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Feel it in your fingers: On Nov. 7, 2003, "Love Actually" was released in 576 theaters in North America. Written and directed by Richard Curtis, the film earned $6,886,080, over its debut frame, a pittance of what would come: $246 million in global grosses and a permanent place alongside "It's A Wonderful Life," "Scrooged," "The Muppet Christmas Carol," "A Christmas Story" and "Elf" as a must-watch movie during the holiday season. While "Love Actually" fans can agree that the romantic comedy is a modern-day classic of the genre, one debate is much more combative: Just which of the film's nine story threads is actually the best?

One Last Word On 'Happy Endings'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Happy Endings" is officially canceled, but ABC is still getting heat for it. At his executive session, ABC president Paul Lee discussed the series and the struggles it had on the network. "Happy Endings" got its highest ratings airing after "Modern Family," and according to Lee, the series couldn't find its "sea legs" away from the popular series. Lee said any show "has to sort of earn its right" to stay after the Emmy-winning comedy and has to "attract an audience on its own," something "Happy Endings" didn't do. Paul Lee says #HappyEndings was canceled because "it couldn't find its sea legs away from a strong lead in" #TCAs13 — TV Guide Magazine (@TVGuideMagazine) August 4, 2013 "Obviously we were thrilled with #HappyEndings behind #Modern Family but a show has to earn its right to attract audience on its own," Lee — Danielle Turchiano (@danielletbd) August 4, 2013 Launching the new season in the fall of 2012 in a new timeslot also proved "extremely challenging, ...

A 'Happy Endings' Revival? Not So Fast ...
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Losing "Happy Endings" totes sooks. But in the complicated world of television, this may not be the end. When ABC pulled the plug on "Happy Endings" after three seasons and lots of scheduling moves, USA Network emerged as a frontrunner to save the beloved comedy. But when that fell through, Sony tried to find the show a new home. Sadly, that was unsuccessful as well. "We don’t know the specifics; that's all sort of above our pay grade. But there were ongoing talks with a lot of places. It just didn’t work out," "Happy Endings" creator David Caspe told TVLine. "The truth is, how many shows have moved networks ever? It’s very difficult to do, and there’s probably some financial algorithmic reason for that that I don’t even understand." While canceled shows usually don't move networks -- it's only been done a handful of times with shows like "Cougar Town," "Friday Night Lights" and "Damages" -- some do get a revival down the line. Fox brought "Family Guy" back to life, Come ...

No 'Happy Endings' For USA
Huffington Post - over 3 years
There won't be any "Happy Endings" for USA Network. A source confirmed to The Huffington Post that "Happy Endings" will not move to USA for a fourth season. Deadline first reported that USA and Sony Pictures Television officially ceased talks to bring "Happy Endings" over after being canceled by ABC. Before ABC axed the cult-hit comedy, talk of USA saving it emerged and Deadline reports USA entered talks immediately after ABC canceled the series. However, while the two parties have confirmed there were talks, no deal was made in the weeks following ABC's official cancellation of the comedy. "Happy Endings" starred Casey Wilson, Damon Wayans Jr., Elisha Cuthbert, Eliza Coupe, Adam Pally and Zachary Knighton. The series, which ran for three years on ABC, followed a group of six friends in Chicago. The series bounced around ABC's schedule before finally being exiled to Friday night back-to-back airings. The network aired commercials asking viewers to watch the show to s ...

Are Broadcast Networks Killing Comedy -- Is Its Future On Cable?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
"Happy Endings" is more than just a funny, flailing show on ABC. Its wobbly situation provides an object lesson in what ails broadcast network comedies more generally.  The show is adored by its fans, saddled with a checkered ratings history that earned it an iffy Friday night slot and it may be on its way to a new cable home. It's something of a poster child for the state of half-hour comedies on the Big Four networks. As television transitions to whatever's next with all the grace of the show's resident klutz, Penny (Casey Wilson), it's worth looking at what the ABC program may tell us about where the half-hour show is going -- and whether, as happened with one-hour dramas over the last decade, comedy's center of gravity is shifting to cable.  I recently spoke to the "Happy Endings" team and to other writer/producers about the state of not only this show but of comedies on the broadcast networks more generally. Many hour-long dramas on network TV are clearly struggling ...

    More Details Hide Details The film grossed $10.9 million at the box office. The critic Stephen Whitty of the Newark Star-Ledger said, "When, in the last few minutes, Cuthbert finally slipped her bonds and began looking for her tormentors, I knew exactly how she felt." The View London published: "The Worst Cuthbert struggles to make her character sympathetic because the script doesn't give her anything to work with, while Daniel Gillies is too creepy-looking to convince as a potential love interest." In He Was a Quiet Man, Cuthbert played Vanessa, a quadriplegic, starring with Christian Slater. The film was in limited release in 2007, and it was released on DVD in early 2008.
  • 2006
    Age 23

  • 2005
    Age 22
    In her next film, Cuthbert starred with Paris Hilton and Chad Michael Murray in the 2005 remake of the horror film House of Wax.
    More Details Hide Details In one scene, her character attempted to open her mouth while her lips were sealed with glue. For realism, she used Superglue over prosthetics. House of Wax was largely panned, critics citing a range of flaws. It was called "notable for having some of the most moronic protagonists ever to populate a horror film," though of those characters, critics tended to think Cuthbert "fares the best." Though it received negative reviews the film was a box office success, which grossed $70 million worldwide. The Houston Chronicle cited Cuthbert as an exception. Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle said of the film, "Elisha Cuthbert's matter-of-fact, likable quality helps. Seeing her turn into wax would be as bad as seeing that happen to Glenda Farrell (the star of the 1933 version)." The Movie said: "The performances are always professional and understated in their believable cogency, particularly Cuthbert, a talented, beautiful young actress who has proven time and again just what a multilayered and promising future she has ahead of her. Cuthbert digs into the role of Carly with strength, determination, and horrified realism; you believe as you watch her that she is going through these things and forget all about the actor playing the part, which is the biggest compliment of all. Sergio Leone of Filmjerk.com said: "Paris Hilton and only plays her known personality in the film. She's overshadowed by the strong work from the rest of the cast, notably Chad Michael Murray and especially Elisha Cuthbert, who gives the film a strong dose of enthusiasm with her Jamie Lee Curtis esque performance."
  • 2004
    Age 21
    Her first break in a major film role was in 2004, The Girl Next Door.
    More Details Hide Details She played an ex–porn star, Danielle, opposite Emile Hirsch. She had reservations about the part, but was persuaded by director Luke Greenfield. She researched the role, speaking to adult actresses from Wicked Pictures and Vivid Entertainment. The film was compared to Risky Business, although Cuthbert said her character was not directly based on Rebecca De Mornay's. Critics were divided; some praised the film for boldness, others, notably Roger Ebert, called it gimmicky and exploitative. Ebert wrote that he saw Cuthbert's character as "quite the most unpleasant character I have seen in some time." The View London said: Cuthbert is surprisingly good, too – aside from being Drop Dead Gorgeous, she also proves herself a capable comic actress in the Cameron Diaz mould. (Though, sadly, for those of you who like to know these things, her kit remains resolutely on throughout). Cuthbert won two nominations for the MTV Movie Awards:Best Kiss and Best Breakthrough Performance.
  • TEENAGE
