People Places Things is the brainchild of writer / director, James C. Strouse. It’s also a film that does a good and entertaining job of navigating that complicated space between a significant break up and the next potential relationship.
Starring Jermaine Clement, Regina Hall, Stephanie Allynne and Jessica Williams; Strouse’s comedy possesses a kooky and pleasantly offbeat quality. A quality that can be partly attributed to the limbo state a few of the characters find themselves in, as well as the unapologetic directness and honesty in the way they communicate with each other.
The things that make People Places Things good remind me of my favourite sitcom of all time, Peep Show. Peeps Show is a British comedy series in which the audience hears the dialogue spoken by all the speaking characters, in addition to the internal dialogue of the show’s two stars – everything they think but never dare say.
Watch it for a cast that are amply gifted with good comic timing, the chance to see Regina Hall in a refreshingly different kind of role, to discover the talents of Jermaine Clement and because People Places Things is good and funny.
There’s a new Tina Fey comedy and it’s not Sisters (2015). Starring Fey, Alfred Molina, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, Whiskey, Tango Foxtrot tells the story of Kim Barker (Fey), a US journalist stationed in Afghanistan and Pakistan…
I really must give full points for the music in this trailer. It does a great job of setting the tone. Generally, I’m most excited about the humour which I think will work as an antidote to the tension-filled Kilo Two Bravo (2014), another war region movie – though certainly not a comedy.
My fingers crossed the film works, especially since the last comedy set in Afghanistan (Rock the Kasbah (2015) apparently didn’t do so well.
Kelsey Grammer and Andy Samberg are the stars of Storks, a new and intriguing comedy/ animation, Storks…
This movie looks like fun and I’m excited to learn more about the history behind how storks came to be known for delivering babies. I’m also looking forward to meeting the stork I imagine Adam Samberg will be playing.
Good news for Melissa McCarthy fans, for she has a new comedy trailer…
I couldn’t get through ten minutes of Tammy (2014) but I’m giving The Boss a chance because, well, how fascinating is that red wig? In all seriousness however, this trailer good and I did love Spy 2015.
Written and directed byBen Falcone, The Boss also stars Peter Dinklage and the lovely kristen Bell, an actress I last saw and loved inStuck In Love (2012).
