I'm trying to recall a title for one of the many shows that have
included stereotyped single woman (with cat) eating ice cream out of
container in front of TV...

=20

But in the meantime, I think this one might fit the bill:

Title What's cooking? [videorecording] / Flashpoint ; written by
Gurinder Chadha, Paul Mayeda Berges ; produced by Jeffrey Taylor ;
directed by Gurinder Chadha. Publisher [United States] : Trimark Home
Video, c2000. Physical Details 1 videodisc (109 min.) :=20

Performer Note Joan Chen, Julianna Margulies, Mercedes Ruehl, Kyra
Sedgwick, Alfre Woodard, Maury Chaykin, Estelle Harris, Dennis Haysbert,
Lainie Kazan, Victor Rivers, Douglas Spain.=20

Summary In Los Angeles' Fairfax district, four households celebrate
Thanksgiving amidst family tensions. In the Nguyen family, the
children's acculturation and immigrant parents' fears collide. In the
Avila family, Isabel's son has invited her estranged husband to their
family dinner. Audrey and Ron Williams want to keep their own family's
ruptures secret from Ron's visiting mother. In the Seelig household,
Herb and Ruth are unwilling to discuss that their grown daughter is
living with her lover, Carla.

=20

Dear CW,

Here's a fun one... I've been asked to come up with a list of feature
films for a nutrition counseling class that show how people may use food
to cope, doctor or counselor/patient interaction, or food rituals in the
home. She is not necessarily looking for films where food is an
overarching theme -- rather, films with scenes that can be used as a
discussion-starter to liven up a lecture. A few ideas that the prof.
has come up with already are:

Patch Adams
Soul Food
Two Weeks Notice
Parenthood
The Doctor
Bridget Jones Diary

A couple of others with key scenes that I'm thinking of are:

Candy
Pieces of April
Spanglish (though I haven't seen it)
Fried Green Tomatoes

I keep wanting to recommend the 'Itis episode of The Boondocks, but I
don't quite thing that's what she's after ;) . If anyone can recall /
recommend specific scenes (in case I haven't seen the film in question
recently), I'd be very appreciative.

Thanks in advance,

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
