This is the story of ME (Chris Evans), a young man disillusioned by love, who meets a breathtaking young woman, HER (Michelle Monaghan), at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist. Only one problem: she’s engaged. Yet, he engages into a platonic relationship to be able to keep seeing her. Like a young Walter Mitty using the power of imagination and wild vignettes, HE will stop at nothing to conquer HER heart.

Director: Justin Reardon
Cast: Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Luke Wilson, Topher Grace, Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Phillip Baker Hall

This looks really cute! Great cast! I tend to favor drama’s but every once in a while I really enjoy a good romantic comedy. I couldn’t find a release date for the U.S., so we could see this one released directly onto blu-ray or digital download. Either way, I’m looking forward to see it.

How about you? Do you think you’ll watch Playing it Cool?

“This is Where I Leave You” New TV spot & Prize Pack giveaway #TIWILY

A couple of weeks ago I shared the movie poster, trailer and book club information for “This is Where I Leave You”. Now I have a fun new TV spot and prize package giveaway to share with my readers.

About the film:
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

Check out this new TV spot!

This Is Where I Leave You stars Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard and Jane Fonda
Based on the novel “This Is Where I Leave You” by Jonathan Tropper.
