Happy to see Elisha Cuthbert`s Happy Endings
She was headlining that cool little 'tween magazine show along with some kid named Jay Baruchell when I first interviewed her in Toronto 14 years ago--or, in her terms, half a lifetime ago.
Tonight she stars in Happy Endings, the best of the rom-coms that have been comin' 'atcha all winter and spring. It premieres at 9:30 p.m. ET on Citytv and ABC.
A lot of critics are calling it a Friends ripoff. It reminds me more of How I Met Your Mother, but I find it edgier than either of those shows. The dialogue is pretty damn snappy tonight, you`ll want to PVR it to keep up with some of the twentysomething put downs.
I wrote more about Cuthbert and her Happy Endings in a story for The Canadian Press. You can read the full story here.
