You may not get all the newspapers. It's possible you left the room or Tivo'ed right over that commercial with the big quotes and the little name who said them on that movie you may or may not have any interest in. Well, welcome to the new weekly feature that is going to get you all caught up on what is being said in Marketing Land. Are the trustworthy critics speaking out because they saw it early and had their embargo lifted? Or are the studios using their old stand-bys and junket junkies to spread the word because no one else will?
Youth In Revolt
"Destruction...sex...laughs. Sweet! Michael Cera gives his best performances yet! A tasty comic treat!" - Peter Travers
"The most outrageous and inspired comedy in years. The laughs keep coming until you're doubled over begging for more. Joyfully funny and subversively smart." - Shawn Edwards
"A can't miss comedy." - Caryn James, Marie Claire
- After over a year of delays and multiple release dates by the Weinstein Company, the adaptation of C.D. Payne's cult novel is finally hitting theaters. The film screened at the Toronto Film Festival back in September and has been receiving its fair share of positive reviews (check out our review here). (It is currently 90% at Rotten Tomatoes) That doesn't mean that Peter Travers will be left out to get an early start on beating a personal best 77 quotes from 2009. But couldn't they find someone, ANYONE, other than Shawn Edwards to praise their quite funny comedy? "The most outrageous and inspired comedy in years," Shawn? Didn't you say that Drillbit Taylor was "The freshest and funniest comedy in a long time" and that last year's guys-in-a-cheerleader-camp-romp, Fired Up, was "The funniest, craziest and zaniest teen movie ever?" So precisely where does Youth In Revolt rank in that scheme then?
