The Incredible Jessica James is a Netflix original movie. It premiers July 28. The heroine of The Incredible Jessica James is freaking dope and it looks like the whole movie will be freaking dope, too.
Jessica Williams stars in the film. She has the star power to do a movie all by herself, but she is joined in this one by Lakeith Stanfield, Chris O’Dowd, Noël Wells, Megan Ketch, and Sarah Jones playing herself.
Netflix publicity describes Jessica James as “fierce, passionate, and unapologetic.” The film’s synopsis is, “An aspiring playwright in New York strikes up a friendship with a guy while on the rebound from a break-up.”
If I had one wish for The Incredible Jessica James beyond hoping the incredibly dope leading lady can charm me with the same gusto that the trailer makes be believe in, I would wish the title character’s name looked less like Jessica Jones at first glance. She could be Jessica White or Jessica Chastain or Jessica Lange or Jessica Williams – wait, those are all taken. Okay. She could be Jesse James – wait, that one’s taken. Forget it, she’s Jessica James. Do a double take and read both words carefully. You’ll figure it out.
