Betty White’s Best Movies And TV Shows (And How To Watch Them)



Betty White’s Best Movies And TV Shows (And How To Watch Them)

We have lost a legend in the world of television, one of the true pioneers of Hollywood, and someone who deserved every ounce of praise that she received while she was living – that’s right, I’m talking about Betty White, the ultimate Golden Girl herself. From her start in radio to her time on television to her hilarious roles in movies, Betty White solidified herself as a force to be reckoned with throughout her eight decades of work in Hollywood. 

Now, in honor of her passing, let’s take a look at some of the best Betty White movies and TV shows that are streaming right now, or that you can rent. Thank you for being a friend, Betty. 

The Golden Girls (1985-1992)

If you’ve ever heard of Betty White, you probably know her from The Golden Girls, a hit sitcom that aired back in the eighties. This popular show follows four older women who were all divorced or widowed from their past husbands. Now, they live together, all under the same roof, with different hobbies and personalities that consistently clash and create hilarious situations. 

If we’re talking about what Betty White is probably known the most for, it’s this show. The Golden Girls is beloved by so many people for the sheer amount of heart and love that was poured into the show, mixed in with its hilarious stars, including Betty White. Her character of Rose, while naive, was such a breath of fresh air to the show and always offered jokes that would make anyone smile, which could only be delivered by Betty White. It’s a classic sitcom anyone would love, so give it a shot if you haven’t seen it. 

Stream The Golden Girls on Hulu.


The Lorax (2012)

Based on the Dr. Seuss novel of the same name, The Lorax takes place in a world that is devoid of anything real – everything is fake, and there’s no real nature anywhere. But when a young boy finds out that the girl of his dreams wishes she could see a real tree for the first time, he sets out on an adventure to find one for her.

Betty White voiced Grammy Norma, one of the eldest people living in their fake world and who has some idea of what the world was like before and knows about the Once-ler, and almost instantly you can hear the character she adds to The Lorax. While the film itself has great messages on the preservation of nature and the importance of learning to care for the Earth, her character always had her funny moments, creating great sequences that make this movie enjoyable to watch. It’s definitely a fun kids movies

Rent The Lorax on Amazon. 

The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1973-1977)

Here, we have two legends working together. The Mary Tyler Moore Show was one of the first sitcoms to ever portray a woman who was independent and living her own life, and of course, Betty White was a part of it. Featuring the starring actress, Mary Tyler Moore, we follow Mary, a young, kind woman who is working towards a long-lasting career in a TV station in Minneapolis, working in a male-dominated field. 

Betty White played Sue Anne Nivens, and while White was already in the TV industry prior to her role in this show, this is one of her breakout roles. Sue was basically the total opposite of Mary, pretending to be the perfect housewife but behind the scenes, was quite the foul-mouthed woman with a thirst for competition. It’s amazing to see someone like Betty White, who is so cheerful, to play someone who is the complete opposite of her, and yet it works so well. 

Stream The Mary Tyler Moore Show on Pluto TV.


The Proposal (2009)

If you’re looking for a hilarious romantic comedy, check out The Proposal. In this film, starring Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock, an executive that hails from Canada is risking her life getting turned upside down when her visa is about to expire. So, in order to stay in the United States and not let all her work go to waste, she makes her assistant pretend to be her fiance – with hysterical results. 

In all of her years of working, I personally love this appearance from Betty White the most. Playing the grandmother of Andrew (the assistant), she whole-heartedly embraced Bullock’s character and offered hilarious scenes in support of the couple, even faking a heart attack near the end so that Andrew could go after the woman that he loved later on in the film. She was funny, sweet, and everything you would expect Betty White to be. You just had to love her in this movie. 

Rent The Proposal on Amazon. 

Hot In Cleveland (2010-2015)

In this hilarious sitcom, Hot in Cleveland follows three best friends, all in their 40s, who are on a plane trip to Paris. But when their plan is forced to land in Cleveland, the three of them come to the realization that their lives back home aren’t as fulfilling, and decide to stick around in the city for now on and start a new life – where they’re considered hot still. 

Betty White plays Elka, the care-taker of the home that the three women are renting out, a sassy older woman who lives to make fun of people, enjoy life and drink plenty. Betty White was actually scheduled to just be in one episode, but her appearance was received so well, she was given a main role, and what a role that was. While the three women who lead Hot in Cleveland are great all on their own, Betty White added that extra bit of spice that this quartet of amazing females needed, and made us laugh every single week. 

Stream Hot In Cleveland on Paramount Plus.


Life With Elizabeth (1953-1955)

When we say that Betty White had a very long, active career in television, we are not lying. Life With Elizabeth was one of Betty White’s first ever TV shows, showing the daily life of a wedded couple, showing different situations in their everyday world, often involving something silly happening later on. 

While the show didn’t run for very long compared to some of her other work, Life With Elizabeth is what put Betty on the map. What made this show even more interesting is that instead of a regular one-story episode, the show was always split up into three separate segments, showing new stories every ten minutes. And, this was one of the earliest forms of fourth-well breaking, where the characters would actually talk to the audience.

Stream Life With Elizabeth on Pluto TV.

Lake Placid (1999)

I bet you didn’t think you’d see a wicked horror movie on here, but here we are. Lake Placid tells the story of the ancient legend of a supposed crocodile that is rumored to be 30 feet long, and constantly terrifies the visitors of Black Lake in Maine. Deciding that this is the end of this terror, a group takes it upon themselves to take out this monster and kill it, somehow ending its reign of horror. 

While she wasn’t a main character in the movie, White’s supporting role is hard to forget once you see it. Playing Delores, a seemingly innocent older woman who lives by the lake, was perfect for her because the character isn’t what she seems, and she has secrets. You’d never expect someone like Betty White to end up playing someone like this, but she does a great job of it. It’s also worth it just to see Betty White cuss. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder. 

Stream Lake Placid on AMC+ via Amazon Prime. 
Rent Lake Placid on Amazon.


Toy Story 4 (2019)

It’s hard to top the masterpiece that was Toy Story 3, but the sequel that came out in 2019 got very close to it. Toy Story 4 is the fourth installment in the Toy Story series, this time following Woody, Buzz and the gang with their new owner, Bonnie, on a crazy adventure that takes them to a new world that they never would have imagined. 

While Betty White wasn’t featured in the movie for long, her cameo is great. She plays Bitey White (see what they did?), a child’s teething toy that was put away in the closet once Bonnie got older, fashioned as a tiger. What makes this even better is that she was paired alongside several other comedy legends in that one cameo role, like Carol Burnett, Mel Brooks, and Carl Reiner, all speaking about how they wished they could be played with by Bonnie again. It’s a “blink and you’ll miss it” kind of moment, but such a great inclusion of her voice as well as several other great voice actors. 

Stream Toy Story 4 on Disney+. 
Rent Toy Story 4 on Amazon.

Her Saturday Night Live Episode (2010)

Saturday Night Live has been around for decades now, so it was only a matter of time before one of the queens of TV comedy herself, White, appeared on an episode. If you’ve lived under a rock for several years, SNL is a primetime comedy sketch show that airs on Saturday nights (hence the name), creating spoofs of pop culture, politics, and more. 

Betty White hosted an episode of the popular sketch show back in 2010, and to this day I still consider it to be one of the best episodes out. Not only was her comedic timing perfect, her interactions with the cast members of that time (such as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and more) were so funny. The sketch of her getting interviewed by the Census worker still makes me laugh every time I watch it.

Stream Her Saturday Night Live episode on Hulu.


Bones (2015-2017)

Next up, we have the popular crime procedural, Bones, that ran for several seasons. In this series, a forensic anthropologist, nicknamed “Bones,” and an FBI agent team up to try and solve murders through examining the remains of victims, with a new mystery every episode. 

Betty White portrayed Dr. Beth Mayer, another forensic anthropologist within the world of Bones, during Seasons 11-12. While she was only in two episodes (“The Radioactive Panthers in the Party” and “The Carpals in Coy-Wolves”), her character was so memorable for her hilarious backstory about her past lovers or husbands and everything in between. I wish they had her on for more episodes but we can at least enjoy the time she was on there now. 

Stream Bones on Hulu.

The Bold And The Beautiful (2006-2009)

Last but not least, let’s take a look at The Bold and the Beautiful, a long-running soap opera that featured Betty White from Seasons 20 to 23. This show follows the Forrester family, known for their famous fashion line. But even if it looks like they have everything in the world, scandals, cheating, and more cause drama within their homes and around each other. 

Betty White played Ann Douglas, the mother of Stephanie Forrester and Pam Douglas, in The Bold and the Beautiful popping up for several episodes throughout her three-season run on the show. She gave just the right amount of soapy lines, crazy drama, and everything else you would expect from a show like this, leading up to one of the most dramatic death scenes in soap opera history.  

Stream The Bold and the Beautiful on Paramount Plus.


While Betty White is gone now, we will always have her iconic roles to remember her by. I’ll be watching The Proposal again in honor of her on her upcoming birthday – and maybe, you’ll have found a new show to love as well.

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its $70 Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling




Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its  Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

After years of anticipation from DC fans, Warner Bros finally found a way to introduce Barbara Gordon to live-action, announcing a solo movie for the hero with the developing Leslie Grace-led film. Batgirl, which finished filming earlier this year, has been scheduled to hit HBO Max sometime this year, however according to a number of new reports, Warner Bros doesn’t want Batgirl to see the light of day. Outlets are reporting that $70 million project is being scrapped after test screenings scared off the studio on the movie. 

Batgirl has been called “irredeemable” by a reported “top Hollywood source” found by The NY Post. Per the report, the movie will be “shelved,” but it has yet to be confirmed by the studio if it’s purely a rumor or a bombshell piece of news for one of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC movies.  

The Wrap backed up this report, sharing it had additionally heard via insiders that the movie “did not work” for studio executives – made by Bad Boys For Life and Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah for a reported budget of over $70 million (though it may have ultimately cost the studio $90 million by the time cameras finished rolling). 

The news could perhaps be the product of the recent change in Warner Bros’ leadership, with CEO David Zaslav becoming the new big boss since WB merged with Discovery. There was some rumored talk of the previous WB chair Toby Emmerich considering Batgirl for a theatrical release rather than a HBO Max exclusive, however, but the new reports suggest the film isn’t testing to the level of a big-screen project and may be removed from getting any kind of release. 

Batgirl would not only introduce Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, but is features a stacked cast including the return of Michael Keaton as Batman and J.K. Simmons as James Gordon. Brendan Fraser plays the film’s villain, Ted Carson a.k.a. Firefly. It’s arguably unheard of for a project as high-profile as this one to lose any form of avenue for distribution. 


Apparently, a move like this is not uncharacteristic for Warner Bros’ new CEO, however, who previously shut down the failed streaming service CNN+ weeks after it launched (it reportedly cost $300 million to put together). There is some restructuring of DC projects currently underway behind the scenes, with David Zaslav on the search for a someone to fill a role much like Marvel boss Kevin Feige has at Marvel Studios. 

Coming off San Diego Comic-Con late last month, Marvel Studios announced and showcased a lineup of projects planned until 2025 including two more Avengers films, whilst DC did not bring anything from Batgirl to its panel. Instead, Warner Bros chose to only focus on Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, both of which have set release dates later this year. Warner Bros. Discovery is set to report its earnings for this past business quarter on Thursday; it’s possible we’ll learn more then.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere




High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

What time is it? Summer time!

Well, that’s what the students of East High are saying in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. I know, the name is a mouthful, but honestly, this show is a whole lot of fun and if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. The first two seasons were great, from the songs in Season 1 to the drama in Season 2, and when it was announced that the series would be getting a Season 3 and 4, I was all on board. 

Now that I have watched the first episode of Season 3, I am even more excited for the next episodes to come, and that premiere has me all in my feelings – specifically these five. 


Man, this show makes me so nostalgic for when I was younger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I would never travel back in time to then, just because I was so young and didn’t know half the stuff I know now, but there is just something about listening to the soundtrack of some of these original songs from the High School Musical movies that just get me. While we don’t get many songs in the first episode, we get the classic, “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2 within the few three minutes of the show and ugh, the memories. 


If you were a tween or kid back in 2007 and watched HSM2 when it premiered on Disney Channel, you know this song just as well as I do. And for years, I sang this song on the last day of school – heck, I still sing it now whenever warm weather comes around and I’m two years out of college. I love this music, and I can already tell from just this first episode that this season is going to make me so nostalgic. 


I’m really curious to see what they’re going to do with this camp in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

For those who don’t know, the first two seasons of this series were pretty much based around the first film’s premise. The show takes place in a world where the movies exist, but instead of the actors from the High School Musical cast that we’re familiar with, we are introduced to students who are auditioning for those iconic roles. And over the last two seasons, we’ve watched them grow into brilliant performers while singing in productions of both High School Musical and Beauty and the Beast, with covers and original songs all along the way. 

But the whole entire point of the first two seasons was that this show took place in the same high school where the movies were filmed. So it’s only natural to think that the second season might end up happening at the country club that was in High School Musical 2, but nope – we are at a summer camp, something that was never talked about in the original movies. 

The arrival of everyone coming to this summer camp is fun, but it makes me wonder how they’re going to include the songs from High School Musical 2 into this season when it’s not at the same location as the film, but it’s still interesting to watch, nonetheless. 


Dude, I love Olivia Rodrigo – and I mean that. This girl has done so much these last two years and watching her in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is always a joy. 


But what really makes me so proud of her is that I’m not even just proud of the actress, but the character as well. Nini is this young star who is a little afraid to take these big risks but she does so anyway, knowing that she has this big break she can’t lose, which was the big theme of this first episode. She goes away on this road trip with a producer over the summer so she can record songs, giving her that shot, and I am so proud of her for doing that. 

Olivia Rodrigo plays her perfectly, and while I know that her character was demoted to a guest role thanks to Rodrigo’s budding music career, I can’t help but be proud, because wow, she has blown up. It makes me want to watch her documentary on Disney+ again


I know I said earlier on that I was curious as to how they’re going to really change up this season with this new location. But, about twenty minutes in, I genuinely was feeling eager to see where this show would go – specifically the dynamics of new characters. 

For two seasons, we have pretty much been surrounded by the same characters, and while we have grown to love them, I think this season was the one where we truly needed a change in not only scenery, but characters as well. And this first episode brought a ton of them in. 

One of the scenes that got me really eager to see what happens with these new characters was when Gina, Ashlyn and Kourtney, three clear as day theater kids, find out they have to share a cabin with Gadget (a new character) and two other girls – and you can clearly tell at first that they are not feeling the vibe, and you can almost smell the problems from a mile away. 

That screams great television, and it’s got me wondering how much more drama this show is going to produce over the next episodes with these new dynamics. I’m so eager to see. 



Seeing Corbin Bleu in the premiere episode made me very excited to see where this fictionalized version of him is going to go next. 

Usually, when it comes to the original members from the High School Musical movies, we’ll get some pictures from them from the old high school – like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron both recently taking pics there in 2022 – but I didn’t think anyone would come back to the show. We had Lucas Grabeel and Kaycee Stroh in Season 1 but no one in Season 2, so I’m super pumped to see Corbin Bleu back for this season.

Not only that, but Jason Earles. Do you guys know who he is? The moment I saw him as Dewey, the director of Camp Shallow Lake, I practically screamed. This man is Disney Channel royalty. He was not only a co-star on Hannah Montana but also on Kickin’ It and I can’t believe he is in another Disney show and it has me so excited. 

I’m not sure how often he and Bleu are going to be on the show, but I know for a fact that those two appearing on that stage has me excited for what this season holds and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Could Zac Efron be next?

What are you guys looking forward to with Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series? All I know is that if I don’t get a cover of “Fabulous” by Carlos in this season, I will riot. I demand it, Disney+!

The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie




The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie

Book adaptations of big-time novels always seem to go over well with audiences, and have for plenty of years, with movie sagas such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings taking over the box office. But, a newcomer is arriving on the movie scene, one which should have been adapted almost as soon as it came out, if you ask me.

The School for Good and Evil, an amazing addition to the fantasy genre, is finally getting its own adaptation into the film world – but not in theaters. However, it will be appearing as a Netflix movie, on the popular streaming website. However, what else do we know about this upcoming film? What is it going to be about? Who is going to be in it? There are plenty of things that you might not know, but we do. Here are some quick things we know about the upcoming Netflix film.

The School For Good And Evil Release Date Is Set For October 21

Mark your calendars, fantasy lovers, as The School for Good and Evil is going to be coming out as part of the 2022 movie release schedule! Announced with the official poster from the Netflix Twitter page, it was confirmed that The School for Good and Evil would release on the popular streaming platform in Fall 2022, specifically on October 21. 

Talk about a great addition to all the fun Halloween movies we’ll be watching during that time of year – I can always use a little good and evil in my life.

The School For Good And Evil Has A Star-Studded Cast

With an adaptation like The School for Good and Evil, we all knew that the cast needed to be amazing. And, luckily, there’s no shortage of amazing additions to this Netflix movie. First, let’s take a look at the two leads characters of the film, Sophie and Agatha, where the story begins. These two roles will be played by Sophia Anna Caruso, known for her role in the Broadway musical Beetlejuice, and Sofia Wylie, who stars on a Disney+  show you really should watch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Wylie is especially excited for her role in The School for Good and Evil. In an interview with MTV, she talked about her part as Agatha and how she’s excited to “bring some realness” to the character that hadn’t been seen before. She described Agatha’s struggles with internal and external beauty through her own experience, saying that it’s something she can relate to and that it’s an important message to teach.

That’s something that I personally can really relate to, that voice inside of your head, how much power it has. I deal with those doubts and those insecurities. And I think I can really bring some realness to Agatha in that sense because I know, as a teenage girl, it can be very difficult to overcome that voice.

Adding on to this cast, Deadline reported that two megastars, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, signed on for two of the main roles in the upcoming film. Theron is set to play Lady Lesso, and Washington will portray a teacher at the school, Professor Dovey.

In addition to these two, in another article, Deadline reported that Laurence Fishburne, known for his roles in The Matrix trilogy and many other films, as well as action star Michelle Yeoh, from movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Crazy Rich Asians, and her TV role in Star Trek: Discovery, have stepped up to be in The School for Good and Evil. Fishburne will play the Schoolmaster – a role that sounds quite fitting for someone of his talents, and Yeoh will portray another teacher, Professor Anemone.

Also for the film, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, and Freya Theodora Parks will play Anadil, Dot and Hester, three young women who are a part of The Coven in The School for Good and Evil, as confirmed by a behind-the-scenes look with the author of the original novel, Soman Chainani on YouTube.

Already, this film is shaping up to be filled to the brim with some of the Hollywood elite. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do with the material they are given, because it’s about to get magical.

The School For Good And Evil Will Follow The Bestselling Book Series

For those who don’t know, The School for Good and Evil is composed of several novels in a series. Netflix confirmed that this new movie will be based on the series by Soman Chainani, and from the premise of the film, it’s looking to be exactly like the first novel.

As confirmed by the description from the trailer for the new movie on YouTube, The School for Good and Evil is going to follow two best friends, Sophia and Agatha, who are swept into a world of trying to balance both good and evil when they are given different roles, but this in turn causes their lives to turn upside down. 

I’m already on board for a story like this. Two opposing personalities who end up being trained in styles that they thought they weren’t aligned with? Thrown into unlikely situations? Fantasy elements? My god, I can almost feel the franchise coming. Netflix has a great addition with this one.

Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig Is Directing The School For Good And Evil

I don’t think there could have been another perfect choice for the director for The School for Good and Evil than Paul Feig. The legendary director has produced some of the biggest comedic hits in the last ten years. For example, Feig directed the smash-hit Bridesmaids back in 2011, the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters, the Emilia Clarke Christmas comedy Last Christmas, the comedy thriller, A Simple Favor, and so many others.

Besides movies, Paul Feig has also directed multiple episodes of several incredible sitcoms, such as The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The School for Good and Evil novels have an amazing comedic element to them, and I can only imagine what a comedic director like Paul Feig will bring to the table in this new film.

Finding Neverland Screenwriter David Magee Wrote The Screenplay For The School For Good And Evil

When it comes to an adapted screenplay, you always have to make sure that you find the right person to do it, because with novels, there are so many details that need to somehow make it into the movie. The School for Good and Evil found its screenwriter in David Magee.


Magee is a perfect choice, because not only has he been around the business for some time, he’s had plenty of experience in writing fantasy, working on films such as the Academy-Award winning Life of Pi, the Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, and wrote the screenplay for Finding Neverland, the story of the author who created the legendary character, Peter Pan. Truly, he has great experience up his sleeves, and I’m eager to see what he’ll do with the fantastic story that is The School for Good and Evil.

The School For Good And Evil Has Finished Filming 

As you can expect for a film that already has a trailer, The School for Good and Evil finished production for their film not too long ago. From a tweet on Twitter from Netflix Geeked, it was confirmed back in July of 2021 that filming had wrapped on the film and was entering into the post-production phases. 

Watch The Trailer For The School For Good And Evil 

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for The School for Good and Evil, be sure to watch it now, as you won’t want to miss out on the magic. 

With an amazing cast, awesome story, and some really cool looking set pieces featured in the trailer, The School for Good and Evil is looking to be an amazing addition to Netflix’s original film line-up. I can’t wait for this movie to pop up as part of the 2022 Netflix movie schedule. I’m practically counting down the days.
