"The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough is love." — Henry Miller
Today is Valentine's Day and love is in the air. And we're not talking about platonic love or brotherly love, tough love or self-love, but romantic love — the real hearts-and-flowers, butterlies-in-your-stomach type of love that sets your soul on fire and makes you feel like you're walking on air. Scientists may say that the euphoria we feel when we are in the embrace of romantic love is merely a chemical response with evolutionary advantages, but anyone who has truly experienced it knows that it feels far more like magic than science. Though romantic love is nearly impossible to define or describe to others, great filmmakers are often capable of capturing just enough of that magic feeling that we recognize it in their films and respond to it with our sighs and our laughs and our tears. Light a few candles, pour a couple glasses of wine or sparkling cider and help us select the most romantic movies of the past twenty years.

Attention men everywhere: all you need to do to look like Ryan Gosling (and make ladies swoon) is follow a few easy steps. According to stand-up comedian Joey Thompson, looking like the Drive heartthrob is effortless, and he shows us how to do it in his YouTube tutorial.
First, change your wardrobe. Next, "shave your face to a length that's more GQ than it is Grizzly." Then poke your jaw out "a tiny little bit" and keep your smile "thin and simple." If you're feeling confident, you can even attempt to converse like Gosling, who is known for his East Coast smooth-talking accent.
However, it seems as though Thompson is forgetting one important element — how does one acquire those photo-shopped looking abs he sports in last year's romantic-comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love? And we're sure all the men are wondering how they can land A-list hotties such as Rachel McAdams and Eva Mendes.

"Between the writing, acting, directing and the rest, it works. Not crazy, not stupid, and filled with love. Period."— Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"...there's a fresh, insightful feel to this multigenerational love story..."— Peter Debruge, Variety
"...remarkably sane and reasonably smart."— A. O. Scott, New York Times

Back in 2006, Tina Fey made an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote her show, 30 Rock. During the course of the interview Fey and Stewart mentioned both Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, two former Daily Show correspondents, and Fey made the statement "one of the two, and I will not say which one, was a notorious ladies' man."
So which Steve was it? After a recent press junket for the upcoming Crazy, Stupid, Love we might have the answer. While sitting down with our own Patrick Stinson, it looks like Carell kind of let the cat out of the bag. Watch the interview >> Posted 07.27.11 by Mandy

It's been a long, brutal winter in most parts of the country, so it's no surprise that even Hollywood is looking to get a jump on summer. The rollout of blockbuster movies starts this Friday, a full month before the Memorial Day Weekend.
As you'd expect (and hope), the mix of movies being offered up is heavy on the Action/Adventure movies (11) and Comedies (10). There's also plenty of offerings for Kids/Families (8). What's new this year is the addition of more R-rated comedies, thanks in no small measure to The Hangover's runaway success two summers back. Along with it's sequel, see what else is playing this summer — complete with trailers and photo galleries.

Crazy, Stupid, Love is the latest comedy where Steve Carell plays a man in his forties who finds his love life in complete upheaval. This time, however, Carell isn't a 40-Year-Old Virgin or falling for his brother's girlfriend (Dan in Real Life). Here Carell is the average family man who suddenly finds himself divorced and back on the singles scene. It's the unlikely comedic foil of Ryan Gosling who teaches Carell how to pick up women.
