Curtiss, Allegra Clegg, Charles Newirth, Devorah Moos-Hankin, Marsha Garces Williams, Marvin Minoff, Mike Farrell, Steve Oedekerk, Tom Shadyac Screenwriter: Maureen Mylander, Patch Adams, Steve Oedekerk Film Description: Patch Adams is a 1998 comedy-drama film starring Robin Williams. Directed by Tom Shadyac, it tells the true life story of Dr. Hunter "Patch" Adams and the book Gesundheit: Good Health is a Laughing Matter by Adams and Maureen Mylander. The film is generally considered a box-office success, grossing over twice its budget in the United States alone. However, it was poorly received by most critics. Plot: The film tells the story of Hunter "Patch" Adams (Williams), a medical doctor who became famous for his unconventional approach to medicine. After attempting suicide, he checks himself into a mental institution, where he gradually bonds with his fellow patients. During this time he is inspired to become a medical doctor, and discovers that he is able to forget his own problems by helping others. Two years later, he enrolls at Virginia Medical University (a fictitious school shot at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus) and he is the oldest first year student. He questions the school's approach to medical care, and clashes with the school's Dean Walcott (Bob Gunton), who believes that doctors must distance themselves from patients. Because of this and other incidents, including a prank during a medical conference, he is expelled from the school, although he is later reinstated. Adams develops a relationship with a fellow student, Carin Fisher (Monica Potter), and develops his idea for a medical clinic built around his philosophy of treating patients through humor and compassion. With the help of Arthur Mendelson (Harold Gould), a wealthy man who was a patient whom Patch met while in the mental hospital, he purchases 105 acres (425,000 m²) in West Virginia to construct the future Gesundheit! Institute. Together with Corin, medical student Truman Schiff (Daniel London), and some old friends, he renovates an old cottage. When they get the clinic running, they treat walk-in patients without medical insurance, Patch performs comedy sketches for the patients, such as wearing thick glasses and pretending to be near-sighted. Corin is fascinated by Patch's talent, and their friendship turns into romance. She reveals to him that she had been molested as a child and had always wanted to become a butterfly to escape her torment; Patch reassures her that she can overcome her pain to help others. More encouraged than ever by Patch and his spirit, Corin wants to help a disturbed patient, Lawrence "Larry" Silver (Douglas Roberts), by visiting him at home. Larry turns out to be far more disturbed than anybody had expected, and he murders her, turning the shotgun on himself soon after. Patch is devastated and guilt-ridden by Corin's death, reconsiders his outlook, and questions the goodness of humanity. He contemplates suicide, but tells God that Heaven is "not worth it" and turns to see a butterfly. He then realizes how Corin mentioned to him that she always wanted to be a butterfly, and decides to continue his work in her honor. Dismissed from the school for a second time because he ran a clinic and practiced medicine without a license, he files a grievance with the state medical board at the advice of his former med school roommate, Mitch Roman (Philip Seymour Hoffman), and must attend a hearing where it is decided whether he can graduate. Patch is able to convince the board in a final speech that he did his best to help the people that came to him, stating that treating a disease of the body is a win-or-lose situation, but treating a person's spirit guarantees a win regardless of the outcome. He encourages medical students to cultivate relationships with nurses and learn their interviewing skills early, and argues that death should be treated with dignity and even humor. In the end the jury accepts Patch's medical methods and decides to allow him to graduate. He receives a standing ovation from the packed hearing room. Even at graduation, Patch cannot help but be a non-conformist. After handing Adams a diploma, Wolcott...

Erickson, Irving Azoff Screenwriter: Cameron Crowe Film Description: Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a 1982 American coming-of-age teen comedy film written by Cameron Crowe and adapted from Crowe's 1981 book. As a freelance writer for Rolling Stone magazine, Crowe went undercover at a California high school and wrote about his experiences. The film was directed by Amy Heckerling and chronicles a school year in the lives of freshmen Stacy Hamilton (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and Mark Ratner (Brian Backer) and their respective older friends Linda Barrett (Phoebe Cates) and Mike Damone (Robert Romanus), both of whom believe themselves wiser in the ways of romance than their younger counterparts. The ensemble cast of characters form two subplots with Jeff Spicoli (Sean Penn), a perpetually stoned surfer, facing off against uptight history teacher Mr. Hand (Ray Walston), and Stacy's brother, Brad (Judge Reinhold), a senior who obsesses about paying off his car and easing out of his relationship with his girlfriend. In addition to Penn, Reinhold, Cates and Leigh, this movie marks early appearances by several actors who also became stars, including Eric Stoltz, Nicolas Cage, Anthony Edwards and Forest Whitaker. Three of the actors who appeared in the film -- Cage, Penn, and Whitaker -- won the Academy Award for Best Actor later in their careers, with Penn winning twice. Crowe later became a celebrated Hollywood director and screenwriter, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his movie Almost Famous.

The film is about a misfit group of fraternity men who challenge their college's administrators. The screenplay was adapted by Douglas Kenney, Chris Miller and Harold Ramis from stories written by Miller and published in National Lampoon magazine based on Miller's experiences in the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity at Dartmouth College (the character Pinto is a thinly veiled version of Miller, whose actual fraternity nickname was, in fact, "Pinto"), Ramis' experiences in the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at Washington University in St. Louis, and producer Ivan Reitman's experiences at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Of the young lead actors only John Belushi was an established star; several of the actors, including Tom Hulce, Karen Allen, and Kevin Bacon, were early in their careers. Upon its initial release, Animal House received generally mixed reviews from critics, but Time and Roger Ebert proclaimed it one of the year's best. Filmed for $2.7 million, it is one of the most profitable movies of all time; since its initial release, Animal House has garnered an estimated return of more than $141 million in the form of video and DVDs, not including merchandising. The film launched the gross-out genre. In 2001, the United States Library of Congress deemed Animal House "culturally significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. This film was #1 on Bravo's 100 Funniest Movies. It was number 36 on AFI's 100 Years... 100 Laughs list of the 100 best American comedies. In 2008, Empire magazine selected Animal House as one of The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time. Plot: Two freshmen, Larry Kroger (Thomas Hulce) and Kent Dorfman (Stephen Furst), seek to join a fraternity at Faber College in 1962. They visit the prestigious Omega Theta Pi House's invitational party but are unwelcome. They then try next door at the Delta Tau Chi House ("I hear it's the worst house on campus"), where Kent's brother was once a member. They meet John "Bluto" Blutarsky (John Belushi), urinating outside the building. The Deltas "need the dues" and permit Larry and Kent to pledge. They receive the fraternity names "Pinto" (Larry) and "Flounder" (Kent). Dean Vernon Wormer (John Vernon) wants to remove the Delta fraternity from campus due to repeated conduct violations. Since they are already on probation, he puts the Deltas on "Double Secret Probation" and orders the clean-cut Omega president Greg Marmalard (James Daughton) to find a way to get rid of the Deltas permanently. After Omega member and ROTC cadet commander Doug Neidermeyer (Mark Metcalf) bullies cadet Flounder, Bluto and Daniel Simpson "D-Day" Day (Bruce McGill) persuade Flounder to sneak Neidermeyer's horse into Wormer's office late at night. They give him a gun and tell him to shoot it. Flounder does not know that the gun is loaded with blanks. He cannot bring himself to kill the horse and fires into the ceiling, but the noise frightens the horse so much that it dies. In the cafeteria the next day, Bluto provokes Marmalard with his impression of a popping zit. This starts a food fight that engulfs the cafeteria. Bluto and D-Day steal the answers to an upcoming psychology test. However, the Omegas planted the exam stencil and the Deltas get every answer wrong. Their grade point averages drop so low that Wormer only needs one more incident to revoke the charter that allows them to remain on campus. Undaunted, the Deltas organize a toga party, during which Otis Day and the Knights perform "Shout". The dean's drunken wife, Marion (Verna Bloom), attends the party at Otter's invitation and sleeps with him. Due to the party Wormer revokes the fraternity's charter, and their belongings are confiscated. To take their minds off their troubles, Otter, Boon, Flounder, and Pinto go on a road trip. Otter picks up some girls from Emily Dickinson College by pretending to be the boyfriend of Fawn Liebowitz, a girl who recently died on campus. They stop at a roadhouse because Otis Day and the Knights are performing there, not realizing that it caters to an exclusively black clientèle. The hulking patrons intimidate the guys into fleeing, leaving their frightened dates behind ("The Negroes took our dates!"). Things go from...

The film blends elements of comedy as well as more serious themes common in drama films. Upon release, the film was a major critical success, and went on to be nominated for four Academy Awards, including: Best Picture, Best Actor for Bill Murray, and Best Director for Sofia Coppola; Coppola won for Best Original Screenplay. The film centers on an aging actor (Bill Murray) and a recent college-graduate (Scarlett Johansson) who develop a unique closeness after a chance meeting in a grand Tokyo hotel. The movie explores themes of loneliness, alienation, insomnia, existential ennui, and culture shock against the backdrop of a modern Japanese cityscape. Plot: Bob Harris (Bill Murray), an aging American movie star, arrives in Tokyo to film a Suntory whisky advertisement. Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), a young recent Yale graduate, is left behind in her hotel room by her husband, John (Giovanni Ribisi), a celebrity photographer on assignment in Tokyo. Charlotte is unsure of her present and her future and about the man she has married. Bob's own 25-year marriage is tired and lacking in romance as he goes through a midlife crisis. One night, Bob finds himself unable to sleep and goes to the hotel bar where he meets Charlotte, who also cannot sleep. The two had previously seen each other throughout their days earlier at the hotel, but strike a friendship bond through their adventures in Tokyo together while experiencing the differences between Japanese and American culture, and between their own generations. On the penultimate night of his stay, Bob attracts the attention of the resident vocalist. The next morning, Bob awakens to find this woman in his room, having apparently slept with her. Charlotte arrives at his room to go out for breakfast only to find the woman in his room, leading to conflict and tension over a subsequent lunch. Later that night, during a fire alarm at the hotel, Bob and Charlotte reconcile and express how they will miss each other as they make one more trip back to the hotel bar. On the following morning, Bob is set for his depature back to the United States. He tells Charlotte goodbye at the hotel lobby shortly before checking out and sadly watches her retreat back to an elevator. While riding in a taxi to the airport, Bob sees Charlotte on a crowded street and he gets out and goes to her. Bob embraces Charlotte and whispers something (substantially inaudible to the audience) in the tearful Charlotte's ear. The two share a kiss, say goodbye and Bob departs.

As E.T. raids the refrigerator at home, he starts to drink beer and Elliott (Henry Thomas) feels the drunken effects in class. TM & © Universal (2011) Buy Movie: *******www.amazon****/gp/search?ie=UTF8&keywords=E.T.%3A%20The%20Extra-Terrestrial&tag=movieclipscom-20&index=dvd&linkCode=ur2 Scene: Getting Drunk - *******movieclips****/bANfn-et-the-extra-terrestrial-movie-getting-drunk/ Movie Details: E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) - *******movieclips****/SwRj-et-the-extra-terrestrial-movie-videos/ Cast: Henry Thomas, Erika Eleniak Director: Steven Spielberg Producer: Melissa Mathison, Steven Spielberg Screenwriter: Melissa Mathison Film Description: E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is a 1982 American science fiction film co-produced and directed by Steven Spielberg, written by Melissa Mathison and starring Henry Thomas, Dee Wallace, Robert MacNaughton, Drew Barrymore and Peter Coyote. It tells the story of Elliott (played by Thomas), a lonely boy who befriends a friendly extraterrestrial, dubbed "E.T.", who is stranded on Earth. Elliott and his siblings help the extraterrestrial return home while attempting to keep it hidden from their mother and the government. The concept for E.T. was based on an imaginary friend Spielberg created after his parents' divorce in 1960. In 1980, Spielberg met Mathison and developed a new story from the stalled science fiction/horror film project Night Skies. The film was shot from September to December 1981 in California on a budget of US$10.5 million. Unlike most motion pictures, the film was shot in roughly chronological order, to facilitate convincing emotional performances from the young cast. Released by Universal Pictures, E.T. was a blockbuster, surpassing Star Wars to become the most financially successful film released to that point. Critics acclaimed it as a timeless story of friendship, and it ranks as the greatest science fiction film ever made in a Rotten Tomatoes survey. The film was re-released in 1985, and then again in 2002 with altered special effects and additional scenes. Spielberg believes E.T. epitomizes his work. Plot: The film opens in a California forest as a group of alien botanists collect flora samples. U.S. government agents appear and the aliens flee in their spaceship, leaving one of their own behind in their haste. The scene shifts to a suburban California home, where a boy named Elliott plays servant to his older brother, Michael, and his friends. As he fetches pizza, Elliott discovers the stranded alien, who promptly flees. Despite his family's disbelief, Elliott leaves Reese's Pieces candy in the forest to lure it into his bedroom. Before he goes to bed, Elliott notices the alien imitating his movements. Elliott feigns illness the next morning to avoid school so he can play with the alien. That afternoon, Michael and their younger sister, Gertie, meet the alien. Their mother, Mary, hears the noise and comes upstairs. Michael, Gertie, and the alien hide in the closet while Elliott assures his mother that everything is all right. Michael and Gertie promise to keep the alien a secret from their mother. Deciding to keep the alien, the children begin to ask it about its origin. It answers by levitating balls to represent its solar system, and further demonstrates its powers by reviving a dead plant. At school the next day, Elliott begins to experience a psychic connection with the alien. Elliott becomes irrational due partly to the alien's intoxication from drinking beer. Elliott then begins freeing all the frogs from a dissection class. As the alien watches John Wayne kiss Maureen O'Hara in The Quiet Man, Elliott's psychic link causes him to kiss a girl he likes in the same manner. Makeshift communicator used by E.T. to phone home The alien learns to speak English by repeating what Gertie says in response to her watching Sesame Street and, through Elliott's urging, dubs itself as "E.T." It enlists Elliott's help in building a device to "phone home" by using a Speak & Spell toy. Michael starts to notice that E.T.'s health is declining and that Elliott is referring to himself as "we." On Halloween, Michael and Elliott dress E.T. as a ghost so they can sneak it out of the house. Elliott and E.T. ride a bicycle to the forest, where E.T. makes a successful call home. The next morning, Elliott wakes up to find E.T. gone, and returns home to his distressed family. Michael finds E.T. dying in the forest, and takes the alien to Elliott, who is also dying. Mary becomes frightened when she discovers her son's illness and the dying alien, before government agents invade the house. Scientists set up a medical facility in the house, quarantining Elliott and E.T. The link between E.T. and Elliott disappears as E.T. appears to die. Elliott is left alone with the motionless alien when he notices a dead flower, the plant E.T. had previously revived, coming back to life. E.T. reanimates and reveals that its people...

The screenplay by William Broyles, Jr. and Al Reinert is an adaptation of the book Lost Moon by astronaut Jim Lovell (the story's primary protagonist) and Jeffrey Kluger. The film, directed by Ron Howard, stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, Kathleen Quinlan and Ed Harris. Released in the United States on June 30, 1995, Apollo 13 garnered critical acclaim and was nominated for many awards, most notably nine Academy Awards including Best Picture; it won for Best Film Editing and Best Sound Mixing. In total, the film ended up grossing over $355 million worldwide during its theatrical releases. Plot: Archival footage (narrated by Walter Cronkite) reflects on President John F. Kennedy's call to action to commit the American space program to landing a man on the Moon by the end of the 1960s, as well as the tragedy of the fire in the Apollo 1 spacecraft that killed three U.S. astronauts, followed soon thereafter by America's return to space. On July 20, 1969, veteran astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) watches Neil Armstrong's historic first steps on the moon in Apollo 11 from a party for other astronauts and their families and friends at his home in Houston. Lovell tells his wife, Marilyn (Kathleen Quinlan), of his intent to return to the Moon to walk on it himself. A few months later, Lovell, expecting to fly Apollo 14, is giving a VIP tour of NASA's towering Vehicle Assembly Building while the massive Saturn V rocket is being assembled. As the US senators question the need for any further Moon landings after beating the Soviet Union to the Moon, Lovell is informed by Deke Slayton (Chris Ellis) that he and his crew have been bumped up to be prime crew of Apollo 13. After informing his family of his new assignment, Lovell and his crew, Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) and Ken Mattingly (Gary Sinise) begin training for Apollo 13 instead of 14. As the launch date approaches, Marilyn's fears for her husband's fourth space mission are manifest in nightmares, resulting in her unwillingness to go to the launch. Two days before launch, Lovell is informed that Mattingly had been exposed to German measles. Despite his efforts to overrule the flight surgeon's recommendations, Lovell bumps Mattingly off the flight. Mattingly is replaced by the backup Command Module Pilot Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon), much to the chagrin of Haise and Mattingly. The night before launch, Marilyn surprises Jim by coming to Cape Kennedy to see him off, despite her fears. However, she receives another bad omen in the motel shower when her wedding ring comes off and falls down the drain. On April 11, 1970, Lovell, Haise and Swigert are suited up for the launch. In Houston's Mission Control Center, Apollo 13 flight director Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) prepares Mission Control for the flight. After the crew has been secured inside the spacecraft, the mission is given the go ahead. During launch the center engine on the Saturn V's S-II second stage cuts off prematurely. Lovell considers pulling the abort handle, but is told the rocket can correct for the cutoff, and a successful Earth parking orbit is reached without further problems. Lovell comments, "I think we've had our glitch for this mission." After the third stage re-fires to send Apollo 13 on a trajectory to the Moon, Swigert maneuvers the Command/Service Module Odyssey to dock with the Lunar Module Aquarius and pull it away from the spent stage. Three days into the mission the crew make their first live television transmission from Odyssey, but the networks refuse to broadcast this live, since they believe the general public has come to regard lunar flight as routine. After the transmission, as part of in-flight housekeeping, Swigert is asked to stir the liquid oxygen tanks, suddenly and unexpectedly leading to an explosion in the Service Module. The crew and Mission Control find that the oxygen tanks aboard Odyssey are leaking, prompting Mission Control to abort the Moon landing, and the crew must rush to shut down Odyssey and power up Aquarius to act as a lifeboat so the crew can get home. Their first order of business in Aquarius is to fire its engine so they will return to Earth after...

He sneaks into Memnon's camp and finds his way to the sorcerer's tent, where he discovers that Memnon's sorcerer is actually a beautiful sorceress called Cassandra (Hu). Unfortunately, Mathayus is discovered and caught by the guards, thanks to a tip-off by Pheron's treacherous son, Takmet (Facinelli), leading to Mathayus's half-brother and friend being killed. Before Memnon can kill Mathayus, Cassandra protests, saying it wouldn't be wise because the gods favor him and to kill him would bring misfortune. Unable to kill Mathayus himself, Memnon has him buried to his neck in sand for fire ants to come eat his head. With the help of the horse thief Arpid (Heslov), he manages to escape. Now free again, Mathayus decides to avenge his brothers and kill Memnon. At Memnon's palace, Cassandra tells Memnon that his armies will conquer the west and that Queen Isis (Howard) and her soldiers will scatter to the four winds. Memnon then gives orders to his men to have his soldiers prepare for the final campaign. When Cassandra tells Memnon that rivers of blood will never bring peace, Memnon responds that they can bring obedience and that when he becomes the King of Legends, Cassandra will take her place beside him as his queen. Cassandra tells him that if she becomes his lover, she will lose her prophetic sight, but Memnon says that once he destroys all his enemies, he will no longer need her gift of sight. Mathayus gets into Gomorrah with the help of Arpid and a thieving little boy. Mathayus then sneaks into Memnon's castle along with the boy. He attempts to kill Memnon with his arrows during his daily practice routine, but when the boy who helped him gets caught and charged with stealing, Mathayus saves the boy by shooting the axe out of Tekmet's hands as he was about to cut the boy's hands off. This exposes him, and Mathayus is forced to retreat. After evading the guards, he literally falls into Cassandra's bath house and kidnaps her by going through its drain. Both Mathayus and Cassandra emerge from a water fountain in the city, the latter naked. Mathayus manages to wrap her up and get her into another outfit. He reveals that while he was hired to kill her, he thinks she can be more useful as bait to catch Memnon. The pair escape the city and meet up with Arpid and Mathayus's camel, heading out to the Valley of the Dead. Later that night, Cassandra tries to escape only to be tripped by a rope that is tied from her ankle to Mathayus. During their struggle, Cassandra tells Mathayus that she's not planning on returning to Memnon since he had enslaved her since she was a child. Mathayus frees her, but warns her that as long as she remains with him, she will be protected against even more dangers. The next day, in the Valley of the Dead, Mathayus spots a small group of Memnon's soldiers looking for them, led by Memnon's right-hand man, Thorak (Moeller). Mathayus hides Arpid and Cassandra under a blanket, and rides off to challenge the soldiers under cover of a sandstorm. Mathayus brings down all of the soldiers in a cave until Thorak is apparently the only one left. After a brief struggle, Mathayus impales Thorak in the stomach, but Thorak uses his last moments to use his secret weapon: An arrow drenched in scorpion venom, which he uses to stab Mathayus in the leg before dying. The sandstorm passes, and Arpid and Cassandra find...

All the news teams engage in violent warfare for supremacy over San Diego. TM & © Dreamworks (2011) Buy Movie: *******www.amazon****/gp/search?ie=UTF8&keywords=Anchorman%3A%20The%20Legend%20of%20Ron%20Burgundy&tag=movieclipscom-20&index=dvd&linkCode=ur2 Scene: The News Team Battle - *******movieclips****/R6TZK-anchorman-the-legend-of-ron-burgundy-movie-the-news-team-battle/ Movie Details: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) - *******movieclips****/MJFK-anchorman-the-legend-of-ron-burgundy-movie-videos/ Cast: Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller, Tim Robbins, Vince Vaughn Director: Adam McKay Producer: David B. Householter, David O. Russell, Judd Apatow, Shauna Robertson Screenwriter: Adam McKay, Will Ferrell Film Description: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, or simply Anchorman, is a 2004 American comedy film, directed by Adam McKay and starring Will Ferrell. The film, which was also written by Ferrell and McKay, is a tongue-in-cheek take on the culture of the 1970s, particularly the then-new Action News format. It portrays a San Diego TV station where Ferrell's title character clashes with his new female counterpart (Christina Applegate). This film is number 100 on Bravo's 100 funniest movies, and 113 on Empire's 500 Greatest Movies of All Time. The film made $28.4 million in its opening weekend, and $89.3 million worldwide in its total theatrical run. A companion film assembled from outtakes and abandoned subplots, titled Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie, was released straight-to-DVD in late 2004. In May 2008, it was confirmed that a sequel to Anchorman was in the planning stages, but in April 2010, it was announced that the sequel had been scrapped. Plot: In 1975 San Diego, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is the famous and successful anchorman for KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News. He works alongside his friends on the news team: fashion-oriented lead field reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), sportscaster Champion "Champ" Kind (David Koechner), and mentally retarded chief meteorologist Brick Tamland (Steve Carell). The team is notified by their boss, Ed Harken (Fred Willard), that their station has maintained its long-held status as the highest-rated news program in San Diego, leading them to throw a wild party. While getting drunk, Ron sees an attractive blond woman and immediately tries to hit on her. After an awkward, failed pick-up attempt, the woman leaves. The next day, Ed informs the team that he has been forced by the network to hire Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), a female news reporter from Asheville, North Carolina -- and the same woman Ron had tried to pick up the night before. The news team attempts to seduce Veronica using various inept, arrogant and sexist methods, all of which backfire. Ron ends up asking her out under the guise of helping out a new co-worker, which she accepts. During their date, Ron woos Veronica by playing jazz flute (actually played by Los Angeles based musician, Katisse Buckingham) in his friend Tino's (Fred Armisen) club. Veronica goes against her policy of not dating co-workers and sleeps with Ron. The next day, despite agreeing with Veronica to keep the relationship discreet, Ron tells the entire news room that he and Veronica are in a sexual relationship (and later announces it on the air). The next day when Ron is one his way to the station, he throws a burrito out his car window, accidentally hitting a motorcyclist (Jack Black) in the head, causing him to crash. In a fit of rage, the biker retaliates by punting Ron's dog, Baxter, off a bridge. A distressed and incoherent Ron calls Brian from a pay phone and tells him what happened. Since Ron is now late, Brian frantically tells him to come to the station because Veronica is about to take his place. Despite Ron's efforts to arrive early, Veronica goes on air. After Ron arrives, he has an argument with Veronica about the situation and they break up. The next day, Veronica is made co-anchor, much to the entire news team's disgust. The co-anchors soon become fierce rivals and argue with each other both on and off the air. One day while feeling down on themselves, the News team decides to buy new suits. However on the way to the suit shop Brick, who was leading the way, gets them lost ending up in a shady part of town. They are then confronted by Wes Mantooth and the Evening news team. Tired of their rudeness and petty anger Ron challenges them to a fight. All armed with crude weapons the two teams are about to fight when they are joined by Channel 2 news team with lead anchor Frank Vitchard, the public news team and their lead anchor and the Spanish language news with lead anchor Arturo Mendez. A full on melee ensues between the five teams until they all flee when police sirens are heard. While in a restaurant celebrating Veronica's success, one of Veronica's co-workers tells her that Ron will read...

Cindy Lou Who (Taylor Momsen) catches The Grinch (Jim Carrey), dressed as Santa, stealing her Christmas Tree, and asks him to visit The Grinch. TM & © Universal (2011) Buy Movie: *******www.amazon****/gp/search?ie=UTF8&keywords=How%20the%20Grinch%20Stole%20Christmas&tag=movieclipscom-20&index=dvd&linkCode=ur2 Scene: What's Christmas Really About? - *******movieclips****/S5bh-how-the-grinch-stole-christmas-movie-whats-christmas-really-about/ Movie Details: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000) - *******movieclips****/u6ha-how-the-grinch-stole-christmas-movie-videos/ Cast: Jim Carrey, Anthony Hopkins, Taylor Momsen Director: Ron Howard Producer: Aldric La'Auli Porter, Brian Grazer, David Womark, Louisa Velis, Ron Howard, Todd Hallowell Screenwriter: Dr. Seuss, Jeffrey Price, Peter S. Seaman Film Description: Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (known as The Grinch for promotional purposes), is a 2000 American live-action film from Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment, based on the 1957 book of the same name by Dr. Seuss. Because the film is based on a children's picture book, many additions had to be made to the storyline to bring it up to feature-length, including some information about the backstory of the title character. Most of the rhymes used in the book were used in the film, though some were slightly changed, and new rhymes were put in as well. Directed by Ron Howard, produced by Howard and Brian Grazer, and starring Jim Carrey, it is the first Dr. Seuss story made into a feature film. The film received mixed reviews from critics, but spent four weeks as the #1 film in the United States. Plot: The movie begins with a celebration in the microscopical city of Whoville, where everyone celebrates Christmas with as much happiness and joy, with the exception of the cynical and misanthropical Grinch, who despises Christmas and the Whos with great wrath and occasionally pulls dangerous and harmful pranks on them. As a result, no one likes or cares for him. Cindy Lou, after becoming aware of the Grinch's existence, starts to create interest in the Grinch and his history and asks everyone what they know about him, and soon discovers that he has a tragic past. He actually comes from a mistake by a wrong wind when he was a baby, and is adopted by a group of ladies. Although he shows some sadistic tendencies as a child, he was not the cruel and selfish person who he became; he simply was ridiculed by all his classmates (mostly by Augustus May Who) because of his appearance (with the exception of Martha May Whovier), and goes on a rampage against Christmas. Cindy, touched by this story, decides to make the Grinch the main participant of the party before Christmas, to the great displeasure of Augustus, who has no choice but to agree to the idea. But when she offers an invitation to the Grinch, he only grumbles and sends her out of his cave. However, after much gossip and debate with himself, he (with a "little help" from Max, his dog) goes to the party anyway. While he is initially disgusted with the party, he start to genuinally enjoy himself until Augustus proposes to Martha in marriage and gives the Grinch an electric shaver as a Christmas present, something that makes him remember his traumatic childhood and go on rampage again, spoiling the party and upsetting Cindy Lou. The Grinch is pleased with his rampage, but much to his dismay, he soon realizes that his attack does not remove the spirit of Christmas from them, and that they will do the commemoration of the Christmas tomorrow without any trouble. Angry with the idea of spending another annoying Christmas in his cave, the Grinch deduces that the Whos only celebrate Christmas because of their extravagant gifts, and he (with the unintended help of Max) decides to steal all their belongings while they sleep. He does this successfully, but ends up forcing Max to pull all the things stolen when his flying sleigh breaks. In the next day, when the Whos wake up and notices that they were robbed, Augustus gets mad and openly accuses Cindy Lou as the person responsible for "ruining Christmas!", but her father, Lou Lou Who openly defends her by arguing that she did nothing wrong and that the principal meaning of Christmas is to spend it with family and friends, and not to give or receive gifts and do decorations. The people agree with this remark and begin to sing. Meanwhile, the Grinch, unaware of what is happening in the town, believes that he destroyed Christmas and decides to destroy all the stolen gifts after he hears the Whos crying, but much to his shock and chagrin, he actually hears the joyful singing of the Whos and realizes that his plan has backfired. Disgusted and puzzled, the Grinch starts to ask why his plan fail and, after a moment of reflection, he realizes that Christmas means much more than mere "material gifts", an insight that profoundly touched him and (literally) makes his heart grew up...
