Last night, Amanda and I went to a screening of Jeff, Who Lives At Home. The film, from the Duplass brothers, played at the Film Festival last year and stars Jason Segel, Ed Helms and Susan Sarandon. I went in expecting lots of laugh and not too much thinking.
The film delivered in humor, cringe-worthy moments and just complete absurdity. But that’s not what kept me engaged, the script was superb. The way everything tied at the end with a nice little bow you just didn’t see coming and it all was because Jeff (Segel) watched Signs one day and decides when someone calls him as a wrong number, it’s a sign he’s supposed to do something great with his life.
For me, I completely believe in signs, though I’m sure it’s just my imagination making something more in order to make me feel better about my decisions. But I couldn’t help but take it as a sign that I need to finish editing my book and send off when upon exiting the theatre, we walked right by my writing idol, Roger Ebert.
The film opens on Friday, March 16.
Yesterday, The Frisky continued their Nerd Girl Porn series with Funny Men. Basically, funny men who are hot. I must say, I agreed with nearly half of their picks. There is something about someone who can cut a joke (especially if it’s at their expense). I feel like girls always say, “I want someone with a sense of humor.” But it takes a real gal to truly appreciate the gift of side-splitting. And this gal does.
There’s a lot to be said for making people laugh. Did you know that that’s all some people have? It isn’t much, but it’s better than nothing in this cockeyed caravan. ~Sullivan’s Travels
Where in the world was Seth Meyers though?! He’s definitely my #1…Oh and Ben Stiller too…
Here are the ones I whole-heartedly agree with. Thanks The Frisky!
Vince definitely made his mark during "The Break-Up"
He even makes a great looking unibomber.
I'm a sucker for laughs and noses.
Not liking him would be like not liking Macs. Impossible.
He was adorable even as an alien child.
I never knew gray hair could look so good.
He really stepped up in "Away We Go"
An ad man. A funny man. A Missouri boy. Sign me up.
New on the radar. Just really enjoying his face.
See Wilson brothers above.
He's crazy delicious.
