And the Cunningham household always seemed like a loving home. But here's ten couples who probably weren't so happy showing up to work...

Holding Out for an Ogre: An Appreciation for Shrek 2's Delivery of One of the Most Suspenseful Sequences in Animated History
There are a handful of sequels in film history that may be viewed as superior to their predecessors.

How Far Do Authors Reflect Themselves in Their Protagonists?
When writing fiction, most writers draw upon the clichéd but sage advice to ‘write what you know.’ Some simply explore their native milieu and insert a fictional plot, while others write a roman à clef, skirting the border of fiction and reality.

It is also common for authors to base characters entirely on someone they know, perhaps as a tribute or merely because they fit into the story being told. However how much of the time do authors reflect themselves in their characters?
