Oh, and let's not forget the atrocious "Veronica," where a grocery store clerk (Kieran Culkin) profanely spars with, then seduces, his ex-girlfriend (Emma Stone) over the intercom speaker.
Save for a well-placed tear rolling down Emma Stone's (2013's "Gangster Squad") cheek at just the right time, this story couldn't be any more flat and trivial.
In "Homeschooled," Naomi Watts (2012's "The Impossible") and Liev Schreiber (2010's "Repo Men") play parents determined to give their son (Jeremy Allen White) the full teenage experience without him ever leaving the houseand yes, he reaches first base with his mother.
In "The Proposition," Anna Faris (2012's "The Dictator") stars as a sunshiny scat fetishist who wants her boyfriend (Chris Pratt) to poop on her.
Directed by Steven Brill, Peter Farrelly, Steve Carr, Griffin Dunne, James Duffy, Jonathan van Tulleken, Elizabeth Banks, Patrik Forsberg, Brett Ratner, Rusty Cundieff, James Gunn.At first, he talks about his desire to make "a smart movie with heart" and "a movie about something," then proceeds to rattle off the most obscene and pointless treatments imaginable.In "The Catch," the aforementioned Kate Winslet plays a single fashion designer on a disastrous blind date with a man (Hugh Jackman) who would be absolutely charming if he didn't have a scrotum hanging from his neck.Years from now, it may be viewed as a curiosity piece, a barren and empty cry for help from stars who should have known better.Nevertheless, in close to every way that it could go wrong, it does, and that's got to be worth a dubious footnote if nothing else.
