Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD


"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

"Carousel" and "Spongebob" lead the Drama Desk Nominations

by Nathaniel R

Jessie Mueller and Joshua Henry in Rodges & Hammerstein's revived "CAROUSEL" which led the nominations

As discussed in a previous recent post, most theatrical awards don't have as direct a correlation to the Tony Awards as film awards do to the Oscars. At the Drama Desk Awards, which have been around almost as long as the Tonys, Off Broadway is also considered so their nominations naturally differ quite a lot. Expected Tony frontrunner The Band's Visit received zero nominations due to its previous Off Broadway run (i.e. eligible last season instead with the Drama Desk)

The nominations are after the jump...

See "Mean Girls" on the big screen!

by Nathaniel R

"Get in loser we're going shopping to the movies." Just popping in to tell NYC readers about a chance to see Mean Girls on the big screen. I didn't want you to miss the opportunity because...

Show-Score.com is hosting a screening of the 2004 classic this Sunday (March 25th) at the lovely SVA theater in Chelsea. You can watch the movie with your own clique and here's the extra worth-the-almost-free-price-of-admission part:

UPDATED NEWS -Before the screening, I will be moderating a Q & A with a guest from the Mean Girls musical about adapting the film for the Broadway stage!

Here's the link to buy $5 tickets. Make sure to click on the blue "book now" box on that page so that you get this special private offer that I'm passing on intead of the normal price. If you come make sure to say "hi" to me as I am definitely more of a Cady than a Regina and won't talk about your effing ugly skirt behind your back. 

P.S. If you're somewhat new to The Film Experience and missed our massive 10th anniversary celebration of the film a few years back, make sure to check out that six post party. It was so fetch.

Your 8 favorite lines from "Mean Girls" ?

W magazine convinced Lindsay Lohan to recite her* 8 favorite lines from Mean Girls. Picking 8 definitive favorites is impossible so herewith a list of the lines that probably get quoted most often amongst my friends in no particular order. Would love to hear yours in the comments.

• "It's just gonna be a few cool people and you better be one of them biotch."
• "Oh my god, that was one time!"
• "I'm not, like, a regular mom, I'm a cool mom"
• "But you love Ladysmith Black Mambazo!"
• "She doesn't even go here."
• "I'm sorry that people are so jealous of me. But I can't help it that I'm popular"
• "Trang Pak is a grotsky, little byotch."
• "I can't go out, I'm sick *fakecough*"

* Or did they just give her 8 lines... considering she wants to change one of them.

Blueprints: "Mean Girls"

Hi everyone, Jorge here. Welcome to the first installment of Blueprints, a new weekly series where we'll discuss the relationship between the pages of a script and the finalized cinematic products. To start things off, an audience-favorite and one of the most quotable films of all time.

 

Tina Fey’s cult-classic satire on teenage girlhood, cliques, and cheese fries has quickly become an indispensable presence inside the ranks of Most Quotable Films lists. Behind-the-scenes recognition has fallen more on the writer than on director Mark Waters (brother of Heathers’ helmer Daniel Waters; for those keeping tabs on your clique movies). Almost every single line has become a chant for people to drop on each other, so much that Quote-Along screenings of the film have become widely popular.

But what is it about Mean Girls that made it not only memorable, but practically irresistible to mouth along to?

The Top 100 Comedies: Screwball Dames and Male Auteurs

by Seán McGovern

The limit of list culture is the absolute bias of the person compiling it (except of course the Dewey Decimal System which is without imperfection). To compile theirs, the BBC polled 253 film critics - 118 women and 135 men -  from 52 countries to determine what exactly are the "100 Greatest Comedies".

It's good to look at these lists to remind ourselves that since the majority of films are made by men, so too is the work that's considered both the funniest and the best. Right-on caveat aside, some great, female-centred comedies make the list: 2016's Toni Erdmann at 59; Mean Girls, which we can now call a modern classic, at 57; and Clueless (iconic) at a very healthy 34...
