Candice Bergen Wanted To Be Completely Honest In Second Memoir "A Fine Romance"


Candice Bergen

World, rejoice! Candice Bergen has penned a second memoir, three decades after her first, Knock Wood. The new chapters in A Fine Romance offer a poignant, charming and funny glimpse into Bergen's later years and her marriage to French director Louis Malle. 

Candice Bergen
Bergen has spent the past three decades working in theatre, film, TV and on her biggest role - Murphy Brown.

The book also focuses on motherhood - Bergen had her daughter, Chloe, at 39 - and the success she found later in her career with the CBS sitcom Murphy Brown, which ran between 1988 and 1998. Long before Tina Fey's Liz Lemon, Murphy Brown became the example of a driven, funny, complex career woman, trying to have it all. Bergen was the perfect actress to play her.

Bride Wars Review


OK
Code Name: The Cleaner. BloodRayne. Grandma's Boy. White Noise. Elektra. Are We There Yet?

These are not preliminary selections for the inaugural class of an as-yet-unfounded Hollywood Hall of Shame. They are instead the most recent cinematic abominations to have been released in the early weeks of the new year, dating back to 2005. My colleagues and I regularly joke that if a studio hopes to bury a movie in the cold, efficient style of the mob hiding Jimmy Hoffa, they release it in early January (late August is a suitable alternative). And I've long believed if an intelligent studio sought a surefire hit, they'd counter-program a halfway decent film against the post-holiday garbage, then sit back and watch the box-office receipts pour in.

The Women (2008) Review


Unbearable
Longtime Murphy Brown scribe Diane English dips her toes into bigger waters as she attempts to remake The Women, George Cukor's 1939 comedy classic that saw housewives Norma Shearer and Rosalind Russell face off against shopgirl/mistress Joan Crawford. In English's estrogen-enhanced retooling, it is now Meg Ryan and Annette Bening, career girls flanked by lesbian Jada Pinkett-Smith and mommy Debra Messing, up against husband-baiting "spritz girl" Eva Mendes. Unfair and useless comparisons between the legendary Cukor and newbie English aside, this movie had me for a solid ten minutes before I was considering throwing myself head-first into a tank of Venezuelan red-bellied piranhas.

Like Cukor's film, English's effort boasts an all-female cast that ranges from raging, single Manhattanites to pot-smoking, transplanted Angelenos to Connecticut-rich ladies who lunch. The latter would be Mary Haines (Ryan), a fashion designer who gets the axe from her father after expecting him to hand over the keys to the castle. Before Mary even finds out, her best friend Sylvia (Bening) receives drive-by gossip about Mary's husband's affair with a counter girl at Saks named (appropriately) Crystal (Mendes). Mary's mother (Candice Bergen) expected it, and her lesbian friend Alex (Pinkett-Smith) wants to convert her. Needless to say, she finds her way through the fog of familial uprooting and finds herself a better mother, friend, and daughter for it.

The In-Laws (2003) Review


Excellent
Has Michael Douglas found The Fountain of Youth in Catherine Zeta-Jones? Since the Gordon Gekko days of Wall Street fame, his body is certainly a little less nimble, his face a little more wrinkled, and his hair a shade too light. But the guy looks great, and he's once again an action hero. That bumps him up from "silver spoon" to "ageless wonder" in the Hollywood classification book - ever closer to the royalty of perennial good lookers Redford and Basinger.

In The In-Laws (based on the 1979 film of the same name), like most other Michael Douglas vehicles, his gaunt face is rarely off the camera. Wisely, director Andrew Fleming inserts a hilarious Albert Brooks as the perfect remedy for Douglas's self-absorption.

The Sand Pebbles Review


OK
A three hour epic about a U.S. patrol in 1926 China? Minghella and Bertolucci still make movies like this. Back in 1966 the auteur of the day was Robert Wise, who'd just come off of The Sound of Music. and this story of a ship headed upriver in revolution-torn China is as plodding as the engine on its gunboat. Much of the running time consists of engineer Steve McQueen working on the boat and trying to communicate with the local "slope heads," notably including a young Mako as a local co-worker. The last half of the movie has McQueen on the most protracted search and rescue mission imaginable. Wise has no handle on the out-of-control, yawn-inducing scenes, but McQueen helps to keep things generally interesting. Nominated for eight Oscars, The Sand Pebbles ultimately won none.

Unbearable
Assume crash positions, people. We're going down.

Bruno Barreto's View from the Top begins with small-town beauty Donna's (a miscast Gwyneth Paltrow) head planted firmly in the clouds. She enrolls in flight school as a means for escaping her monotonous life, but turbulence lies ahead. She finds - and then loses - true love with a ruggedly handsome law student (Mark Ruffalo), and encounters opposition from a rival stewardess (Christina Applegate) she once considered a friend. These obstacles stand in the way of Donna's ultimate goal: to work the first-class cabin on the Paris flight for Royal Airlines.

Sweet Home Alabama Review


Good
In Sweet Home Alabama, Reese Witherspoon plays Melanie Carmichael, a talented and rising New York fashion designer who suddenly finds herself engaged to the city's most coveted bachelor, Andrew (Patrick Dempsey). Son of the city's Mayor (Candice Bergen), Andrew can give Melanie anything her heart desires. However, Melanie's past holds many secrets, including Jake (Josh Lucas), the redneck loser that she married in Alabama during high school and who refuses to divorce her.

Melanie immediately travels to her hometown and confronts Jake in an attempt to end their relationship once and for all, but fond memories of the Alabama locals and her old husband offer an unlikely alternative to her future in the big apple. As Andrew awaits her return, Melanie unexpectedly struggles over her choice between the two vastly different lifestyles.
