4 As we know from the Ladybird Book for Grown-Ups, a Mum has two very important jobs to do. One is to look after her children. The other is to do everything else as well. And so exhausted Julia (Anna Maxwell Martin in permanent grimace mode) was tested to her limits in the second episode of the mom-com, when she unwittingly became involved in that very special hell - the school fundraiser. “We need alcohol. Proper measures,” said friend Liz (Diane Morgan), whose nonchalant attitude to parenting provides much of the programme’s humour, especially in an episode that detailed the sort of excruciating forced fun that could drive many a stressed-out parent to reach for the bottle, and indeed a packet of 15-year-old Onion Rings. Sharon Horgan and Graham Linehan’s new six-part sitcom delicately mines the depths of working motherhood and spits it out in all its blunt, uncensored, chaotic glory. Following Pulling and Catastrophe, we’ve begun to … [Read more...] about Motherland, episode 2 review: magnifying a very special hell in this messy mom-com
Paris St. Germain travel to the Bernabeu tonight to face Zinedine Zidane's out-of-sorts Real Madrid side, with many tipping the French side to go on and win this year's competition. If there wasn't already enough buzz around the match, GentingBet.com are offering an incredible 5/1 price boost that Neymar will score anytime (was 6/5). Here are five reasons why we think the Brazilian will get his name on the scoresheet: Goals galore. Since his world record move from Barcelona, Neymar has lived up to the hype. He's already been involved in 44 goals for the Parisiens, scoring 28 times himself and adding 16 assists for his teammates. Six of those strikes have come in the Champions League this season as PSG topped Group B ahead of Bayern Munich, Celtic and Anderlecht. Record v Real. Neymar has a phenomenal record against Real Madrid - the numbers speak for themselves. In the eight matches he's played against Los Blancos, he's been involved in eight goals, scoring three … [Read more...] about GentingBet.com new customer offer: Neymar to score anytime against Real Madrid at 5/1
Updated 1:58 PM ET, Thu February 22, 2018 (CNN)"The best movies are ones that make me sort of feel everything... I like movies that really kind of put you through the wringer. And I don't mean that in a necessarily negative, sad way. I mean movies that exhilarate you, movies that surprise you." In a perfect world, Kumail Nanjiani's musings on the term "rom-com" would be turned into their own college course. The subject comes up as something of an aside during his interview with CNN, but he takes the bait with the passion of a philosopher who's been asked the meaning of life. It's fitting, of course, because "The Big Sick," an Oscar-nominated story co-written by Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon, in many ways reinvigorated the genre when it was released in June 2017. "Now, I think 'rom-com' is sort of being used to mean something that's unimportant, or trifle, or surface, or shallow and so it has sort of become this negative connotation," he said.

Amanda Stauffer knows a thing or two about first dates. The Manhattan writer’s debut novel, “Match Made in Manhattan” (Jan. 23, Skyhorse Publishing), follows 20-something New Yorker Alison as she ventures into online dating. The book is inspired by the first year the author was single in NYC. “I loved that year madly and deeply for all the heady excitement it entailed, as well as for all the corners and enclaves of the city it introduced me to,” Stauffer says. “Part of the beauty and allure of the city is that there are literally hundreds of off-the-beaten path activities, classes, concerts and exhibits to sample on any given day.” Stauffer shares her go-to first dates, all of which make an appearance in “Match Made in Manhattan”: Coffee at La Lanterna di Vittorio “With vines and foliage creeping up the walls, a garden lit by lanterns, and a blazing fireplace in the winter months, La Lanterna di Vittorio fosters … [Read more...] about Rom-com author shares her go-to first dates
