Review: The Little Hours

I need to say right off the mark that The Little Hours won’t appeal to everyone. If you are the kind of person whose favorite movie is The Princess Bride and reruns of Monte Python are your go-to late night fare, then The Little Hours is for you. Continue reading “Review: The Little Hours”

Watch This: Trailer for Addicted to Fresno

I don’t know when I’ve been quite this excited about a movie. Addicted to Fresno is so perfect!

Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne are co-dependent sisters in "Addicted to Fresno."
Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne are co-dependent sisters in “Addicted to Fresno.”

What exactly do I mean by perfect? Well, it stars Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne as sisters who are completely nutso – funny already, that. Then there’s the rest of the cast: Molly Shannon, Aubrey Plaza, Clea DuVall, Allison Tolman and Jessica St. Clair. Don’t forget the writer Karey Dornetto and the director Jamie Babbitt. It’s an explosion of brilliant women. See? Perfect.

Oh, wait. I think there are some guys in the film, too. Maybe Ron Livingston, Fred Armisen, and Malcolm Barrett.

Lyonne’s character is a hotel maid. Her sister, Greer’s character, is a sex addict who blows into Fresno and gets a job in the hotel with her sister. They have a mishap of sorts with a dead body. It isn’t clear from the trailer what the mishap is or why a cart full of sex toys is the solution, but I cannot wait to find out.

Addicted to Fresno will be available on demand September 1 and will be released in theaters October 2. Laughter will be allowed.
