People have been talking about this movie and I have been waiting to get a glimpse of the trailer. I’d seen a short clip of the film somewhere but nothing to really dig into. Finally the full trailer is out and it is good. The quick official description of the movie: ‘A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends, and church, develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to find happiness and intimacy with his potential true love.’
This marks the full length writing and directing debut for Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I’ve always thought there was something special about JGL. He is one of the few chameleon actors that are working in the industry today. I love the choices he has made in acting and I love his ‘HitRecord’ production company. He is helping artists of all mediums get moving on whatever it is they are trying to do. What a great idea. There should be a lot more of this type of collaborative effort.
As far as this movie goes, I know I want to see it. Tony Danza departs from his true good guy nature and plays a bit of a slimeball which will be an interesting transformation to watch on film. JGL is JGL. I will always want to watch him perform. And of course there’s ScarJo. One of the few ‘bombshells’ out there, Scarlett Johansson is a talented woman who can play at action, drama and comedy equally well. Plus she is stunning. I will be at the theaters in October to see this one.
