The heart has its reasons. This, the moral of Jean Renoir's bittersweet souffle The Rules of the Game, enables viewers to enjoy the writer/director's unsurpassed social comedy without passing judgment on its inconsistent, incorrigible and indelible characters. The story is simple, the drama is complex. During a weekend house party, hosts, guests and help at a country chateau commingle, inflaming passions in an accelerated minuet of flirtation and infidelity. Made in France on the eve of World War II, the film stars Marcel Dalio as a courtly count, Nora Gregor as his wife, and Renoir himself as the bearish Octave, whose clumsiness of body and poetry of spirit are our entree to the social awkwardnesses and grace of this occasion.

"To Sleep with Anger" and "House Party" - two very different views of black, middle-class America - paced a diverse field of nominees Monday for the sixth Independent Spirit Awards. Each received seven nominations for the awards, presented by the Independent Feature Project/West to honor excellence in independent filmmaking. The controversial "Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer" and the resurrected '60s black comedy, "The Plot Against Harry," received six nominations apiece, followed by "Pump Up the Volume" with four and "Metropolitan" with three.

North Carolina State concentrated on shutting down one player to reach the third round of the National Invitation Tournament. It didn't totally succeed - Arizona State's Eddie House still got his eighth 30-point game of the season - but the Wolfpack (19-12) still had enough to win, 60-57, over the visiting Sun Devils last night. House scored 32 points, but only two over the final 12 minutes. He missed the front end of a one-and-one with 1:18 left that could have given Arizona State a three-point lead, then missed a last-second shot after breaking open in the corner.

Kid 'N Play were among the first Rap Stars to break into mainstream movies, and among the few to actually perform Rap onscreen recently. Their debut picture, "House Party," was built around their rap and dance routines. The silly plot was incidental to the numbers they performed. "House Party 2" is another story. It's the rap numbers that are incidental here - they don't occur until the movie is nearly over. The silly plot dominates the sequel, which is good news only for those of you who are entertained by constant references to the crotch area (and judging by the Clarence Thomas Hearings, there are a lot of you)

More than 100 people gathered outside a house party in Logan Saturday night when gunshots erupted, injuring three people, including a 2-year-old girl. Ebony Stratton, 25, who was at the cookout in the middle of the block on 12th Street near Courtland, said on Sunday that the booming sounds first appeared to be fireworks, and a deejay told everyone to stay calm. But then, it was clear gunshots were being fired, and her first reaction was to "drop and get cover. " It was about 9 p.m. and everyone started running, she said.

One of my daughter's teachers had to leave the classroom unexpectedly. The party started as soon as the door closed on her behind. Music, laughing, screaming, wrestling, dancing, dancing on tables and desks, bad language spoken, then shouted, then written on the floor in some medium that would not wash off. In short, it was exactly what you expect when you leave a class of 8th graders to supervise themselves. It reminded me, of course, of Congress. According to the U.S. Constitution, the House of Representatives picks the president if no candidate receives a majority of Electoral College votes in the November election.

Last year, you partied like it was 1999. This year, with all the cosmic navel-gazing over the significance of a simple date change in the Roman calendar, and all the anxiety over the Y2K bug when the clock strikes 12 tonight, many of us seem content to party like it's, well. . .Monday. For most of us. that means ringing in the New Year at HOME. You know, where the heart(burn) is, in addition to the TV, free booze, your own bed and a three-month supply of Dinty Moore, just in case.

President Bush couldn't attend Barbara Macdonald's backyard party last week in Downingtown, but he said hello on the phone. Two nights later, as Margaret Boyce-Furey hosted a party for John Kerry in her Whitemarsh living room, the senator from Massachusetts offered his greetings, also on the phone. Thanks to the Internet and other technology - in these cases, the means to link hundreds or even thousands of homes into a single nationwide conference call - the candidates for president have been able to connect with supporters this year in a newly intimate way. The old political house party, or kaffeeklatsch, in which a host invited over the neighbors to have cake and meet a candidate, has been reinvented in 2004 as a tool of mass mobilization.

In September 2008, word on the street was that Marcellus "Ant North" Jones had shot and killed Tyrek Taylor, his sometime sidekick in crime. So when Jones walked into a family gathering at his aunt's house in Germantown that month, he was greeted by a passel of curious cousins who wanted to know why he killed "Reek. " Jones' alleged response - that Taylor wouldn't stop talking about how Jones had killed Beau Zabel three months earlier - did not stay in the family. Listening quietly in the marijuana-steeped haze was Bruce Mattox, longtime boyfriend of Jones' younger sister, Tiffany.

Rutgers University is reining in Greek life at its largest campus in reaction to several alcohol-related incidents that have brought criticism and scrutiny to the school. The university last week banned house parties at the 86 officially recognized fraternities and sororities on its New Brunswick campus for the rest of the year - a moratorium intended to ensure "the health and safety of our students," a spokesman said. "Rutgers takes seriously its commitment to maintaining a healthy and safe campus environment," E.J. Miranda said Monday in a statement.

It's time you knew I had fleas. As if I weren't single enough. Apparently, being single is like being broke. You don't think you can get broker than broke, but you can. Just ask the government. Oh. Wait. They're closed. Oh, sorry. They're open again. Phew. Anyway, it's not my fault I have fleas, it's my dogs' fault. As you may know, I have five dogs: Ruby the Crazy Corgi, dysfunctional couple Little Tony and Ms. Peach, and bromantic puppies Boone and Kit. I don't know which dog is to blame for our fleas and have questioned them repeatedly, but none of them is confessing.

LEWISBURG, Pa. - House Party at Bucknell University was a springtime rite of passage for decades of students, a weekend of live outdoor music, grilled food, and a festival atmosphere on campus. But the weekend was also known as a hazy few days of debauchery. Among the tamer pastimes: shots, beer pong, daytime boxed wine, sometimes all three. While the tradition of House Party appeared sacred on Bucknell's campus, university president John Bravman canceled the event in August, joining a growing band of officials across the state taking action against alcohol abuse.

THERE'S JUST ONE undisputed fact: Montgomery County resident Richard Dodds shot Ian Hirst-Hermans, then a student at Temple, in the chest on Halloween weekend in 2010. Now, the jury has to decide whether Dodds acted in self-defense, or if he is guilty of attempted murder. "Thank God Ian Hirst-Hermans recovered," Christopher Phillips, Dodds' attorney, said yesterday on the last day of the trial. "But his injuries are not the legal responsibility of Ricky Dodds. " Dodds is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and possession of an instrument of crime.

BERKS STREET near 16th, just west of Temple's main campus, looked hungover Thursday afternoon. Abandoned plastic cups dotted its sparse lawns and a cracked Keystone Light cup leaned against Carver High School's fence. A lonely, half-full cup of beer sat forgotten on a windowsill on 17th Street, next to a trash can full of bottles. It was a sobering morning-after, as the neighborhood, booming with off-campus housing, recovered from a Temple Spring Fling that was marred by tragedy.

A Cherry Hill man was sentenced Friday to 17 years in state prison for killing a township firefighter, stabbing him 15 times at a party last year, authorities said. Naqueebullah Habibi, 20, of the 800 block of Cooper Landing Road, must serve 85 percent of the sentence before he is eligible for parole, Superior Court Judge Samuel Natal said. Habibi pleaded guilty in July to aggravated manslaughter, admitting to slaying William Walker Jr., 21, of Cherry Hill. The two were at a house party on East Kay Drive in Cherry Hill on May 30, 2011, when the defendant and another person became embroiled in a minor dispute.
