hate to say it but this looks D.O.A.
Are you kidding? It looks hilarious and a good idea for any Female Actor.
Thought I would hate this, but it actually looks pretty darn good…
Stay Classy Minnesota
It seemed like Charlize Theron disappeared off the face of the planet. And she comes back in THIS? I don’t know, it looks a little dull to me.
Not a winner by any stretch of the imagination.
Is it an INDIE film.. because it looks like an INDIE film. I don’t know. Maybe the next trailer will speak to me. This doesn’t make me want to rush to the theater. But hmmmmm
I don’t know..
was looking forward to this. now…
I love how Jason Reitman’s ads always say, “From the Director of Thank You for Smoking.” Dude, that’s a decent movie that no one really cares about. Promote JUNO and UP IN THE AIR, which itself really had nothing that great about it. It was a little boring. I’m excited for this, even if the trailer was boring/had no funny moments.
this is actually a movie trailer? Usually you’re supposed to have a good idea what the movie is about after seeing the trailer. this just looks BAD
This isn’t an indy film. There’s a Macy’s product placement in the trailer.
Is it possible for Patton Oswalt to steal a movie from Charlize Theron? “I would keep all of this to yourself. I would find a therapist…”
Did I miss any “Diablo Codyisms”?
Can’t imagine anyone feeling sympathetic towards Charlize’s character in this.
Yeah!!!!! POMERANIANS ROCK!!! And you can fit them into so many things….
The draw to this for me was that she is playing a writer of Young Adult fiction. That is nowhere to be found in this trailer (except the title, I guess).
Cannot wait to see this. It looks so dark and funny and (dare I say it given the title) very mature work from Reitman and Cody. And the cast is intriguing, Charlize is so talented. Count me in bitches.
I auditioned for a tiny part in this film (didn’t get it), but I read the script and it was really, really good. Theron’s Mavis is a misdirected, misanthropic, delusional anti-hero. I’m gonna see it for sure.
Look out, Nancy Meyers. You’ve got a LOT of competition this year, even from the youngsters.
I enjoyed it and the tone. It’s a tough film to market from what i’ve heard as the lead character is hard to sympathise with ie she’s borderline bi-polar and it’s not a broad comedy like bad teacher (terrible piece of shit.) I trust the calibre of people behind and in front of the camera to give this a look. Has Reitman ever swung and missed?
Maybe this should be called “Lifetime Original Movie.”
And why just give the guy a newborn baby? Why not a daughter who reads Charlize’s young adult books and worships her. What’s worse than you idol trying to bust up your parents’ marriage?
The newborn baby fits with the story. Wait to watch the movie before you rewrite a version for yourself.
Another nail in Diablo Cody’s coffin. To be fair, it’s not all her fault. Never before have I seen Hollywood set someone up for such an epic failure. To give a crap film like Juno an Oscar for best original screenplay was actually kind of cruel.
In what world do you live in does winning an oscar — cruel? I don’t care if you have had no more success after that, you’ve one an oscar.
Cruel in that it was undeserved, and will be impossible for her to ever top, essentially guaranteeing that she will always be considered a one hit wonder.
I don’t know, it looks good to me; the dialogue doesn’t seem as terrible as Juno, and I tend to think if Charlize is there it must be worth checking out.
Maybe it’ll win an Oscar for best picture! It always got my goat that Juno, the cinematic masterpiece of the new century, didn’t win best picture!
Seriously, this flick is certainly not genius but I’d go see it and I’m glad to see Charlize out and about.
what is this movie about? i remember reading theron plays a young-adult fiction writer, but it isn’t even hinted in the trailer.
This looks like a sub par “Bad Teacher 2″
