No other decade seems to represent teen comedies as well as the 1980s. Not that the actors or screenwriters were any more talented back then, but the teen comedy had come into its own and the ideas were fresh.
The holidays are here and if you’re lucky enough to be employed this season you very well may find yourself invited to an office holiday party. First off, congratulations on not being a social reject.
Packing up the station wagon and hitting the open road stopping at tourist traps “Clark Griswold style” is basically a thing of the past. However, relics of classic Americana that linger on forgotten highways and back roads and can provide a great opportunity to take in the weird, the campy or just make for a cool new Facebook photo.
Tormented for their odd behavior and rejected for their over sized IQs, sitcom nerds have it pretty rough sometimes. Their foibles can often yield some of the best laughs in a series and bring a touch of vulnerability to a shows cast.
As great as summer is, it can’t all be bikinis and Long Island Iced Teas. There are a few negative things about the season that no matter how hard we to try to avoid, will return each year.
Generally, men get most of the credit for being the tough ones out there fighting wars, conquering uncharted wilderness and other testosterone driven stuff. (Mostly we do it to impress women.) However, nobody’s denying that women aren’t tough as well.
Not a lot of explanation needed here. These ten TV moms make tuning into the boob tube just that much more enjoyable. Most of us weren’t fortunate enough to have friend’s growing up with moms that could have posed for Maxim magazine in between tee-ball games and Cub Scout trips.

Everyone has their own opinion on what the perfect dream job entails, but some of those require big fancy degrees and incredibly long hours. And let’s be honest, a lot of Guyism readers (myself included) may not have the chops to cut it as a heart surgeon or fighter pilot.
We hear more about big time art and jewel heists in the movies than in the news simply for the fact that the main objective of any good burglar is to not get caught.
Fast food is an American way of life. And so are heart attacks and obesity, giving the U.S. of A. top bragging rights. We love to bash the fast food industry in films and books like Super Size Me and Fast Food Nation. However, at 3am after a night of throwing back two-for-one well drinks, nothing really sounds better than a greasy burger.
Video games and Hollywood have had a rocky relationship for going on two decades now. Mario, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter all had their chance to shine on the big screen but were met with lackluster response from critics and audiences alike. Perhaps, not all hope is lost for a video game to make the successful transition to the big screen and earn a 1up before it’s game over.
