Sampat Pal Devi is the founder of the Gulabi Gang—the "Pink Gang"—which brings women together to help fight sexual assault in India.

The First Wives Club Franchise

We’re going to shake things up a little in this month’s edition of Casting Couch. Instead of simply remaking a film, we’d like to present the case for a hypothetical franchise. We all know and love The First Wives Club (with the exception of Jazmine, who has not seen this or literally any movie ever). What if the film didn't stop with just the first wives? What if, much like The Fast and The Furious franchise, we simply got 2 Wives 2 Furious? YOU’RE WELCOME, HOLLYWOOD. READ MORE

A League of Their Own

Baseball season is around the corner, so naturally we need to consider a remake of Penny Marshall’s 1992 classic A League of Their Own. Apologies to the many talented actors who didn’t make the team, but remember: there’s no crying in baseball. YOU’RE WELCOME, HOLLWOOD. READ MORE

Sunset Boulevard

No one is safe from a potential remake on our Casting Couch, not even Based God Billy Wilder. The cast for the original Sunset Boulevard was incredibly meta; we're following suit in our proposed update for the TMZ era. You’re welcome, Hollywood. READ MORE

Safe Nominees in Safe Movies: A Roundtable Discussion on the 2015 Oscar Nominations

In the week leading up to the Oscars, we decided we wanted to take a critical, nuanced look at one of the most debated set of nominations in recent memory, reviled for its sheer and utter lack of diversity. We gathered pals-of-the-Pin Fariha Róisín, Pilot Viruet, Durga Chew-Bose to discuss. READ MORE

"Reservoir Bitches"

This week's Casting Couch is by special request—Reservoir Dogs is the favorite movie of one Anna Fitzpatrick, our totally real and not at all imaginary staff writer. And so we present: Ms. White, Ms. Orange, Ms. Blonde, Ms. Pink, Ms. Blue, Ms. Brown, Nice Gal Eddie, and Jo in the all-women version of Reservoir Dogs. YOU’RE WELCOME, HOLLYWOOD. READ MORE

Working Girl

Working Girl has been on my mind lately; after Mike Nichols passed away in November, I was inspired to re-watch the 1988 comedy starring Melanie Griffith, Sigourney Weaver, Harrison Ford, and a super slimy Alec Baldwin. So, let’s Lean In™ (sorry not sorry) and recast it for 2015. You’re welcome, Hollywood. READ MORE

Ocean's Eleven: Ladies Night

Casting Couch is a new column where we re-cast the world's greatest movies. You're welcome, Hollywood. READ MORE

Some Of The Bests

Good morning! As we begin our initial descent toward the Unofficial End of Summer—the season that suddenly feels like it never really got started, and now you're telling me it's almost over?—we're going to spend the week looking back at a few of our favorite Personal Bests. Some of them you will remember fondly, some of them you will have missed the first time around, but in any event, they are all, one way or another, recollections of good times. Or "good times." They're times, at least. Enjoy! And why not? It's too late to do much of anything to salvage your summer now anyway. Oh, well! There's always next year. Probably.

Summer, Sex & Spirits 2014

New York! Great news: we are proud sponsors of tomorrow night's Summer, Sex & Spirits, an annual benefit for Planned Parenthood of New York City. The good-but-also-bad news: tickets are sold out, which means you might not be able to catch the Broad City broads and the THEESatisfaction broads in the flesh, but you can still get on the waiting list here and you can make a donation here.
