Celebrate St. Patrick's Day without leaving your house with this 24-hour movie marathon!


Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! It’s a day of national Irish pride that also somehow gives people an excuse to vomit up their green beer by 10 a.m. If you’re looking to celebrate the Emerald Isle but don’t want to get stomach bile on your Adidas, here’s the alternative: Your four-leaf-clover wielding friends at EW have programmed a 24-hour movie marathon that will not only give you a full range of St. Paddy’s Day-related tie-ins, but also an excellent reason not to leave the house.

So stock up on snacks, grab some like-minded friends, and dive right in! The marathon begins at 10 p.m. on Saturday night and wraps up at 10 p.m. on Sunday night (just in time for a brand new episode of The Client List). Feel free to sneak in some e-mail checks and bathroom breaks in between titles, but no showering — though you’ll still smell better than the dude in the green Dr. Seuss hat double-fisting fifths of Jameson.

All of the films below are available via Netflix or iTunes, for your convenience. Away we go! READ FULL STORY

Sam Malone go Braugh? Irish language adaptation of 'Cheers' is in development

Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name… only they pronounce it with an Irish accent.

The Irish Film and Television Network recently announced that casting is underway on an Irish language version of Cheers, the classic NBC sitcom set in a Boston bar. Dublin-based production company Sideline is behind the Emerald Isle reboot.

“I know some people think it’s crazy,” Sideline creative director Billy McGrath told IFTN, “but Sideline is now focused on both scripted and non-scripted formats. Is re-producing Cheers any different than us producing a version of Mastermind, Take Me Out or The Great British Bake Off for Irish viewers?” If we had a clue what any of those things were, we’d certainly have an opinion!
