New comedy Ode To Joy stars Martin Freeman, Morena Baccarin, Jake Lacy and Melissa Rauch.

A Jason Winer directed film, at the centre of the story is Charlie. (Freeman). Whenever Charlie experiences strong emotions – namely joy, a sudden bout of paralysis occurs. As a result, Charlie has developed techniques to avoid too much happiness and pleasure . It all appears to be working, but then he falls in love…

The premise is simply too interesting for me to ignore. I myself can’t quite imagine a life devoid of joy. I therefore can’t wait to see how Charlie’s story unfolds. I’d actually watch this movie right this very minute if that were an option.

Ellis Rubin, Jane Curtin, Shannon Woodward, Jackie Seiden, Adam Shapiro, Tyler Bourke, Jason Altman and Alex Perez also star.

Ode To Joy Release Dates: August 9th, 2019 (US)…

WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT (2016): New Trailer Starring Tina Fey & Margot Robbie

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.

Release Date (s): March 4th, 2016 (US & UK)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
