Now It's Time to Ruin Mother's Day With All-Star Ensemble Movie

1 July 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As if ruining Valentine's Day and New Year's Eve wasn't enough, director Garry Marshall has set his sights on taking down another holiday with a star-studded movie featuring insipid, loosely-connected stories.

Deadline reports Marshall is helming "Mother's Day," with Julia Roberts on board to star. Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis are in talks to join her. The film will tell "intertwining stories about the lives of several mothers as the title holiday approaches." Ugh. What did mothers ever do to you, Garry?

If you recall, Marshall has wreaked this havoc before with "Valentine's Day," which also starred Roberts (as well as Bradley Cooper and Taylor Swift), and "New Year's Eve" with Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Zac Efron. The former has an 18 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes; the latter has 7 percent.

Of "New Year's Eve," the great Roger Ebert wrote: It "is a dreary plod through the »

Movie Review – Accidental Love (2015)

22 June 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Accidental Love, 2015.

Directed by David O. Russell (as Stephen Greene).

Starring Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Marsden, Catherine Keener, Tracy Morgan and James Brolin.

Synopsis:

A small town waitress gets a nail accidentally lodged in her head causing unpredictable behavior that leads her to Washington, D.C., where sparks fly when she meets a clueless young senator who takes up her cause – but what happens when love interferes with what you stand for?

Every other film released today seems to come with a narrative built around it, filling the minds of audiences with predestined verdicts before the film is even seen; It’s a remake, it’s a reboot, it’s a restarting franchise, it’s been pushed back, it’s blown its budget etc. In the case of Accidental Love, the chequered history to get the film seen is a story unto itself, with all involved having moved on »

Accidental Love review – toothless, bawdy and aggravatingly zany

21 June 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This Washington farce about an uninsured waitress seeking redress for a workplace injury is never less than annoying

“I have a nail in my head so I need a Moon Base.” In the days before The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook, David O Russell started shooting the healthcare satire Nailed (from Kristin Gore’s novel Sammy’s Hill), only to see the production shut down amid financial chaos. Now, seven years later, we have the retitled Accidental Love, completed (without Russell’s further input) under the pseudonymous director credit “Stephen Greene”.

Unsurprisingly, it’s a mess. Fleeting fragments hint at a superior work while others suggest it was a misfire from the outset. Jessica Biel is rollerskating Indiana waitress Alice who goes to Washington seeking help from congressman Howard Birdwell (Jake Gyllenhaal) following a medically uninsured accident. With a nail lodged in her skull causing mood swings and inhibition loss, »

Accidental Love – video review

In an extract from this week's Guardian film show, Peter Bradshaw and Henry Barnes join Xan Brooks to review Accidental Love, which was shot in 2008 under the title Nailed but languished in post-production hell for seven years. David O Russell's movie involves a roller-skating waitress (Jessica Biel) who meets with an unfortunate accident and is torn between James Marsden's hot cop and Jake Gyllenhaal's hot potato congressman Continue reading »

Accidental Love review: This bafflingly bad nail fail is irredeemably bad

19 June 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Stephen Greene; Screenwriters: Kristin Gore, Matthew Silverstein, Dave Jeser; Starring: Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Hader, Tracy Morgan; Running time: 100 mins; Certificate: 15

Be careful what you wish for. Abandoned due to financial reasons before production could be completed in 2010, Academy Award-winning director David O. Russell's Nailed has finally emerged in the form of Accidental Love. It's so irredeemably bad that even Alan Smithee wouldn't touch it. The directorial pseudonym of choice here is Stephen Greene, and the movie was completed without O'Russell's involvement or blessing.

The premise is an intriguing one and the cast is impressive, hence the understandable clamour for this abomination to be seen. It involves Jessica Biel's rollerskating waitress Alice receiving a nail to a head in a freak accident, causing her to have an increased sex drive that sways her hips away from her loser lover and thrusts her into the path of Jake Gyllenhaal's creepy Congressman. »

When Alice realizes that she doesn’t have any health insurance to cover her operation, a race against time will start in which she will try to convince Howard Birdwell, a young senator from D.C (Jake Gyllenhaal) to pass a »

Accidental Love Review

18 June 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: David O’Russell (as Stephen Green).

Cast: Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, Kurt Fuller, Malinda Williams, Catherine Keener, Paul Reubens, James Brolin.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 101 minutes

Synopsis: Alice (Biel), gets a nail in her head and must travel to Washington to get help from a naive senator (Gyllenhaal).

It’s been awhile since an absolute monstrosity of a film has graced our presence. I’m not talking about excessively bad films, but the kind of films that should never have existed. Accidental Love may not be the worst film of the year, but it’s certainly the least deserving, especially when you consider its troubled past and the fact it was never truly completed. Shot back in 2008, the film, directed by David O’Russell under a pseudonym, had actors (James Caan) drop out, strikes over pay, stopping and starting of production, and finally in 2010 O’Russell left the project. »

Movie Review – Accidental Love (2015)

17 June 2015 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Accidental Love, 2015.

Directed by David O. Russell (as Stephen Greene).

Starring Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Marsden, Catherine Keener, Tracy Morgan and James Brolin.

Synopsis:

A clueless politician falls in love with a small-town waitress whose erratic behaviour is caused by a nail stuck in her head.

Originally titled Nailed and shot way back in 2008, this has been a project plagued by serious financial difficulties and problems. David O. Russell (The Fighter, American Hustle) – billed here as ‘Stephen Greene’ left the project in 2010 and the film was subsequently finished without his involvement. Seven years from shooting to cinema release? That’s a pretty torturous ER wait…

Which sort of connects with aspects of the – undeniably muddled – story. Focusing on small town waitress Alice’s (Biel) accident with a nail through the skull while at a dinner with fiancé Scott (James Marsden), Accidental Love highlights the undeniably unsavoury aspects of federal »

Accidental Love review

16 June 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal star in the long-shelved comedy, Accidental Love. Ryan finds out whether it was worth the 7-year wait...

In the beginning there was David O Russell's Nailed, a political comedy which began filming in 2008 and, after a disastrous string of financing problems, seemingly died two years later. Deciding to cut his losses, a frustrated Russell abandoned the project in 2010 and moved onto Oscar glory with The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

But like Rasputin, Nailed has lingered on without Russell's involvement. Missing pieces have been shot and put in place, and the finished film - now called Accidental Love - is credited to one Stephen Greene, an Alan Smithee-like pseudonym. The result is a fitfully amusing farce that can't begin to hide the scars of its troubled production.

Jessica Biel stars as Alice, an 25-year-old small-town waitress who's caught the eye of vain local cop, »

Accidental Love: David O Russell’s lost film Nailed should have stayed lost

11 June 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Even before abandoning the troubled movie in 2008, American Hustle director David O Russell was notorious for on-set drama. Now, with the director riding high, the failed film has returned – with a new name – and it’s close to a disaster

There are lots of surprises about David O Russell’s new film. It is, in one sense, David O Russell’s old film, since it was shot in 2008. It is also not really his film at all: his name is nowhere to be found on Accidental Love, which is credited instead to Stephen Greene, presumably a distant relative of Alan Smithee (the name usually invoked when directors disown a movie). Fans who have followed Russell’s career closely, though, will recognise the distinctive plot about a waitress (Jessica Biel) who campaigns for better healthcare after a nail-gun accident relieves her of all sexual inhibitions. She travels to Washington in the »

The rise of Bradley Cooper: From Sex and the City to American Sniper

4 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper has become a huge Hollywood star in recent years. Unlike many top actors, who seem to burst onto the scene, Cooper slipped into our collective consciousness over time, moving from minor TV roles to cult movies until he was a bona fide blockbuster.

With the arrival of his latest hit American Sniper in Sky Store, we look back over the fascinating rise of Bradley Cooper:

The early years

As an unknown actor, Cooper made his television debut in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance in Sex and the City in 1999. His first significant role was opposite Jennifer Garner in Jj Abrams's Alias from 2001-06, not as Sydney Bristow's secret agent love interest but as her mild-mannered and slightly awkward reporter friend.

In 2008, he starred in sinister horror film The Midnight Meat Train, a story of a photographer who becomes obsessed with a New York City serial killer called the 'Subway Butcher'. »

Not coming soon: the films still stuck in purgatory

2 June 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The director’s disowned it, the stars have moved on, but after years of delay David O Russell’s Accidental Love (aka Nailed) is finally getting released. To celebrate Banjamin Lee rounds up the most intriguing prospects still suffering on the shelf

Once you’ve actually got your film made and production has wrapped, you’d be forgiven for expecting that audiences will be given the chance to see it.

But even if your film is blessed with an all-star cast, it could still be placed on a dusty faraway shelf and then kept there for years. This month sees the release of Accidental Love, aka Nailed, a comedy that David O Russell made in 2008, before he became an Academy Bff with The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. A starry cast, including Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal, couldn’t prevent production delays and legal issues that led to »
