Weddings are never easy, but How I Met You Mother proves they can get better/worse when Barney Stinson's involved. “The Rehearsal Dinner” was the kind of spectacle we expect from the Barnacle, mixed with the disappointment this season's taught us to anticipate.
How I Met Your Mother has always been unique, and last night was no different. “Bedtime Stories” helped Carter Bays and Craig Thomas reclaim their title as creative kings with this all rhyming episode. James Van Der Beek returns for a night so special even the theme song was a lullaby.
On this week's How I Met Your Mother, siblings just don’t understand. “Mom and Dad” are something for Barney and his brother to fight over. William Zabka returns and reprises his role as the thorn in Ted’s side. But fortunately, it looks like Sherri Shepherd might be done being a thorn in ours.
That uneasy feeling How I Met Your Mother's been giving us all season has finally disappeared. In “Platonish” we’re starting to see things with new eyes. Bryan Cranston returns to the show as The Mother gets a chance to win our hearts. This is one episode no fan should miss.
There’s a lot to love in this week’s How I Met Your Mother. “The Lighthouse” is the scene for two very different realizations for Ted. Sweet as one may be, the writers may be rushing things just a bit.
This week on How I Met Your Mother the less you ask the better. “No Questions Asked” introduces us to the Night Falcon, and one very common clause. The truth is something your friends can blindly ignore, but how long will that work on the love of your life?
How I Met Your Mother still knows how to surprise. “Knight Vision” rested on the laurels of another classic movie saga parody. Don’t worry, you’ll love every minute of it. Here’s a hint: It’s not exactly Weekend at Bernie’s, and it wants to be Star Wars.
The How I Met Your Mother gang needs a refresher in wedding gift giving. “The Poker Game” deals with more than just Ted and Marshall’s etiquette war — Barney and Robin engage in a family battle of their own. Both are equally hilarious, but someone takes things a little too far.
How I Met Your Mother returns to the pattern of nearly good yet far from great episodes. “The Broken Code” was supposed to be a big deal, but something about Ted and Barney’s confrontation was off. The night wasn’t a complete waste—a Tim Gunn cameo is never a bad thing—but there was definite room for improvement.
If last week’s How I Met Your Mother was surprising, Monday's was a predictable let down. “Last Time in New York” signaled the final trip to the city for one of the gang, but the Big Apple deserved better. It’s not where they went wrong that worries us, it’s how long they’ll keep going in this direction.
The gang's all back for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, which finds Bill Hader's Flint Lockwood returning to the town he overran with food. As a second venture, this isn't on the level of Toy Story 2, which is the gold standard for kids film sequels (and sequels in general). That noted, it's nowhere near as insufferable as a...
How I Met Your Mother is back, but church bells aren’t ringing just yet. The final season will countdown to the hopefully happy ending of Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend. “The Locket” and “Coming Back” gave us a glimpse at the first two hours of festivities. What should be a life changing season could be a great goodbye or an exacerbated exit.
Guillermo Del Toro has finally found a replacement for the leading role in his upcoming thriller Crimson Peak. Late last month, the filmmaker lost Benedict Cumberbatch, but now the awesome Tom Hiddleson has stepped in to replace him. More details on that below. Also, the first trailer for Richard Ayoade's The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg, has hit the web....
Because the universe we inhabit is a vast, frightening expanse in which meaninglessness rules all, chaos reigns, and horrors and terrors befall humanity for no other reason beyond the cruel and simple fact that they can, The Smurfs film nearly made $600,000,000 in 2011. As such, with a belly full of cold indifference, the universe (and Sony Pictures) has amassed its spirit-crushing...
The season finale of How I Met Your Mother has come and gone, but we’re still reeling. “Something New” introduced a character, but not the different direction we were promised. As the gang prepared for the wedding weekend, loose ends were fit to be tied, while others were still unraveling.
As How I Met Your Mother creeps closer to its season finale, troubles a foot. "Something Old" sheds light on Robin's marital fears, while Barney finds a new laser tag partner. While Robin's having problems getting reading for the wedding, we're bothered by a certain impending departure.
On How I Met Your Mother, it's time for the most momentous occasion of a guy’s life. But Barney Stinson isn’t any guy. “The Bro Mitzvah” is for the gentleman that lives by a code, and knows how to wear a suit. When The Karate Kid comes to play, you know things are going to get legen—wait for it—dary!
Soon, wedding bells will ring on How I Met Your Mother, or at least we hope so. “Romeward Bound” had The Captain tempting Lily with an amazing opportunity. Barney and Ted get a surprising ally in their quest to see more of Robin’s wedding planner. All jokes aside, he has us a little worried.
Last night's How I Met Your Mother made the future more exciting. Of course that's not hard to do when there's Future Ted and Barney's are all over the place. If that's not enough, Marshall and Robin do what they do best -- battle. Plus, those time travelers aren't exactly what they seem.
Last night, How I Met Your Mother returned in fantastic fashion. “The Fortress” featured several appearances by Jor-El's floating head from Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. There were also countless cool (and pantent-pending) household amenities. When anything that awesome is involved, Barney’s the main attraction.
