Joan Allen Stars in ABC's The Family, an Exciting New Thriller About Domestic Politics – and Domestic Lies
Originally posted 03/03/2016 09:00PM
Consider The Family's Claire Warren (Joan Allen), mayor of Red Pines, Maine, and a potential governor. She lost her son Adam (Liam James) a decade ago: He was abducted and murdered by their neighbor. Then Adam turns up, confused but alive. That hand-over-heart can now be raised in a fist of victory: What a miracle! And what a campaign windfall for Claire!
But wait – how was the neighbor wrongfully convicted in the first place? Why does Adam's sister (Alison Pill), who happens to be Claire's media strategist, race off to confession, her brow pinched in concern? Why is everyone so preoccupied with a ship in a bottle that was entered into evidence? And is Adam, in fact, Adam?
The premiere of The Family is so sensationally entertaining, it may even make you forget this crazy election cycle.

Pretty in Pink isn't just a good '80s movie. It isn't just a good teen movie. And it isn't just a good romantic movie. It's just a good movie, period. The John Hughes classic first hit theaters on Feb. 28, 1986, and it turns 30 years old this weekend.

On July 5, 1989 – 25 years ago – two yuppies went to their boss's beach house in the Hamptons, and the world of dressing up corpses to pretend they're still alive would never be the same.
Weekend at Bernie's was neither the best nor the most popular comedy of 1989, but much like Bernie himself, the corpse-centric movie has had a longer shelf life than anyone would have guessed at the time. Thanks to home video and cable TV, over the course of two-plus decades Weekend at Bernie's has managed to age into something close to respectability.
But while other comedies of the time have spawned cults that obsess over their every line and prop, Weekend at Bernie's hasn't received quite this same level of attention. So let's rectify that, with 11 things you never knew about this classic-ish film.

In Spike Jonze's acclaimed new film Her, the titular pronoun refers to the female voice of a computer operating system, with whom a lonely writer (Joaquin Phoenix) falls in love. Sexy Scarlett Johansson plays the Siri-esque tool, making the premise a little more plausible.
In honor of Her's release this week, let's look back at some of the other movie characters who've been smitten with inanimate objects over the years.

Weekend at Bernie's, this wasn't.
Andrew McCarthy had a harrowing experience while on assignment for the travel magazine Afar recently, as he was escorted at gunpoint out of an historic underground church for intruding without documentation.
On the second day of his visit, having already witnessed an exorcism at the famed Lalibela church, McCarthy, 47, was accosted by a guard. The star of NBC's Lipstick Jungle had bought a ticket to visit Lalibela, but had left it in his hotel.
"His gun [was] pointed at my back," McCarthy writes. "I thought his reaction to my offense was extreme; I tried to say as much. He grunted something in Amharic and prodded me with the tip of his rifle."
