UT Austin Study Says Men Horn-Dogs, Women Floozies

Jeff Prince
This just in! Men and women are different. Blame it on lactation. Hard-toiling psychologists at the University of Texas at Austin performed a cross-cultural study of 4,764 men and 5,389 women in 33 countries and 37 cultures. Wh...

Breaking News: Sex is Fun

JIMMY FOWLER
Much confusion surrounds the ongoing scandal of Gen. David Petraeus, who had to resign from the CIA after a fling with his biographer Paula Broadwell, and Afghanistan commander Gen. John Allen, who may or may not have talked di...


Dangerous Method: Jungian Slip

Psychological titans clash in this drama. Spanking ensues.
KRISTIAN LIN
More than 50 years after his death, Carl Jung seems to have reasserted himself in the zeitgeist, with the recent publication of his famously bizarre The Red Book in German, a display of its illustrated pages in New York, and no...



Smoke Screen

Big Ticket

Please Give Weaves a Guilt-Edged Story

Charity begins at home in this richly observed comedy.
KRISTIAN LIN
If there’s any doubt that Nicole Holofcener should have filmed the Sex and the City movie, her latest comedy Please Give should remove it. The independent filmmaker directed episodes of the TV show in the 1990s, presumably to...



Sex and the City 2: Hanging On

Despite bad writing, the franchise keeps its buddy-buddy heart.
COLE WILLIAMS
Sex and the City 2 picks up two years after the first, with the wedding of Stanford (Willie Garson) and Anthony (Mario Cantone), Carrie’s and Charlotte’s gay best friends. Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and John “...


Death at a Funeral: Back from the Grave

A British farce returns, African-Americanized and slightly better.
KRISTIAN LIN
Marginally less annoying than the British movie that it’s based on, Death at a Funeral stars Chris Rock as a tax accountant/unpublished novelist named Aaron who’s dealing with a host of troublesome family issues after his f...
