Baby-Sitters Club Cast Reunited to Watch the Golden Globes
The Baby-Sitters Club movie that hit theaters in 1995 is based on the insanely popular children's book series. Though the movie was not a box office sensation, it was still very popular amongst young girls and had another life on home video as a perfect companion to the novels. It's been nearly 23 years since the movie hit theaters and now a partial reunion has taken place while getting together to watch the Golden Globes. Larisa Oleynik (Dawn Schafer), Bre Blair (Stacey McGill), director Melanie Mayron, Rachael Leigh Cook (Mary Anne Spier), and Schuyler Fisk (Kristy Thomas) all got together at Mayron's house to watch the awards ceremony.

The BFFs from the 90s are still friends to this day and get together when they can, but careers and families make the times that they get together less frequent. Baby-Sitter's Club president Schuyler Fisk posted the picture of the reunited crew with a caption that reads,

A Midsummer Night's Dream Trailer Introduces a Real Butthead

A Midsummer Night's Dream Trailer Introduces a Real Butthead
William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is set for a new adaptation and it features a literal butthead. Head of an ass is supposed to be the head of a donkey, but this "fresh" new take will feature a literal interpretation on the age-old pun. Bottom will have an actual ass for a face and you can see it in the picture below, no pun intended. Shakespeare wrote the comedy in 1595/1596 and it portrays the events surrounding the marriage of Thseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons. The events include the adventures of six amateur actors, aka the Mechanics and four Athenian lovers who are controlled and manipulated by fairies who live in the forest where most of the play is set.

The trailer for A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to us courtesy of Entertainment Weekly and in addition to the previously mentioned ass face,

Best Teen Movie Kisses

Best Teen Movie Kisses
We prefer to remember these monumental moments in teen film makeouts instead of our own high school experiences. Please join us on a butterfly-inducing trip down memory lane.

A Walk to Remember (2002)

Shortly before making us collapse in tears, A Walk to Remember has us swooning at the sight of Jamie (Mandy Moore) and Landon’s (Shane West) first non-theater obligated kiss. Like the entirety of the first date Landon planned, the kiss is perfect.

A Hilarious Video Essay on the Movie “She’s All That”

When you look back in the Pantheon of teenage movies from the 90s, She’s all That is Way up there. First of all, let’s get into the obscene amount of famous people cast in this movie. Freddie Prinze Jr, Rachael Leigh Cook, Matthew Lillard, Paul Walker, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Kevin Pollak, Anna Paquin, Kieran Culkin, Usher Raymond, Lil’ Kim, and Gabrielle Union. So we’ve got that out of the way. Now let’s get into the film itself. It’s absurd.

Rachel Leigh Cook Brings Back “Your Brain on Drugs” Role for New Drugs Commercial

I’ve always been a tremendous fan of Rachel Leigh Cook. While she never necessarily made it as a leading lady in Hollywood, her brief time on top from the movie She’s All That was a special time for me. I had a crush on her then and I’m pretty sure the older me still has a little crush on the older Rachel Leigh Cook. It’s kind of in one of those, “I could never get her in high school but maybe I’ll have a shot with her at our 20 year reunion” kind of vibe. In any event you might

Rachael Leigh Cook Reprises One of Her Famous Roles in Drug Policy Video

If you grew up in the '90s, there's a good chance you remember She's All That star Rachael Leigh Cook's "this is your brain" anti-drug commercial. It was ubiquitous, thanks to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America's campaign to get it seen by as many people as possible. Here's a refresher:

Now, Cook has reprised that famous role in a new video. This time, instead of attempting to curb drug usage altogether (a ludicrous goal), this one shines a spotlight on the unfair enforcement of the rules against people of color. Heavy stuff, I know, but it's important.

Ok, Ok — I'll throw a bone to those of you who think this is too serious for this site. Here's another instance where Cook reprised that character...on an episode of Robot Chicken:

29 Celebrity Baby Names That Are More Common Than You Think
Kate Middleton and Prince William announced their daughter's name as Charlotte Elizabeth Diana in May 2015, just days after the princess's birth. But she's not the only famous baby with the traditional moniker, since Chelsea Clinton, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Sarah Michelle Gellar all have girls who go by the same name. Other stars have kids who share names too: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are not the first parents to come up with "Saint," and many more stars - like Angelina Jolie and Gisele Bündchen or Sheryl Crow and Mila Kunis - have also picked a name that's previously been snagged by another celebrity parent.
