Of all the movies kicking off the summer this year, there aren’t many aiming at your funny bone, and none look better than She’s Funny That Way. Of course, a stellar cast and a whimsical situation is no guarantee, but this one could be the surprise hit of the first half of the year.
Most notably, from the trailer, Owen Wilson ought to be able to run with this role, and we’re apparently getting a multi-faceted character from Imogen Poots, who is going to have to sell us on a lot of different angles as the plot progresses.
It should be a lot of fun. Check out the trailer, and let me know what you think. Is this going to be one that can attract audiences as we gear up for the summer blockbusters?
Gearing up for the production of his latest play, Broadway director Arnold Albertson »

When a lot of talented people decide to come together on a project, the first instinctual thought is: it must be good! Why would they all sign on if they didn't each see something in the film? Unfortunately, that idea doesn't always come to its logical conclusion, and there are many titles out there that are far from being the sum of their parts. From the looks of its first trailer, Peter Bogdanovich's She's Funny That Way appears to be one of these titles. It's entirely plausible that this is just a really terrible trailer for what winds up being a passable movie, but it's honestly hard to feel anything positive towards this film. Peter Bogdanovich is a terrific filmmaker, and there is obviously some ensemble work going on here - Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Imogen Poots, Rhys Ifans, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, and Michael Shannon just to name »
Today we have the trailer for the upcoming "She's Funny That Way" comedy, starring Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Imogen Poots, Will Forte, Lucy Punch, Kathryn Hahn, and Rhys Ifans.

The new movie is directed by Peter Bogdanovich (Paper Moon) and is set to hit theaters on May 1st. Trailer: »

She's Funny That Way features the story of a married Broadway director (Wilson), who falls for a prostitute-turned-actress and tries to help her advance her career.

Meanwhile, Wilson can currently be seen in the third and final film in the Night At The Museum series. »
Lots of people get laid in the teaser — and also slapped and punched
The “She’s Funny That Way” trailer takes slapstick comedy to a whole new level.

The list of funny stars and comical antics are endless in Peter Bogdanovich’s “She’s Funny That Way,” which marks his return to directing a theatrical feature after a 13-year absence.
The relationship comedy reunites “Marley & Me” co-stars Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston and also stars Imogen Poots, Kathryn Hahn, Will Forte and Rhys Ifans. Wilson plays a married Broadway director who falls in love with a prostitute (Poots) and helps advance her acting career.
The project premiered last August at the Venice Film Festival, but was first conceived in the 1990s as a starring vehicle for John Ritter. It was shelved after the actor’s untimely death in 2003. Bogdanovich co-scripted the screwball comedy with his ex-wife Louise Stratten.
Previously titled “Squirrels to the Nuts,” “She’s Funny That Way” hits theaters on April 10.

Owen Wilson has been relatively quiet over the past few years. He's popped up in projects here and there, but they've mostly been forgettable (The Night at the Museum sequels), solid films in which he has a small role (Inherent Vice, The Grand Budapest Hotel), or just downright awful (The Internship). But he's back in a lead role in She's Funny That Way, an ensemble comedy from legendary filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich (Paper Moon, The Last Picture Show). The film also stars Imogen Poots, Kathryn Hahn, Will Forte, Rhys Ifans, and Jennifer Aniston.
This project has been brewing for years. We have a casting piece about it from two years ago, when it was still called Squirrels to the Nuts, but Bogdanovich has actually been trying to get it off the ground since the late 90s. John Ritter was going to star at one point but he passed away before production began, »

Peter Bogdanovich, who helmed the brilliant The Last Picture Show and comedy classic What’s Up Doc?, has stepped behind the camera for his first feature in 14 years. After the lengthy break he took following The Cat’s Meow, he’s back with a throwback to the screwball comedies of yesteryear, She’s Funny That Way.
A unique blend of character, comedy and homage, Bogdanovich has assembled the type of starry cast that works to rouse moviegoers from their instant streaming and into theaters. The film stars Owen Wilson as a Broadway director who sleeps with a prostitute (Imogen Poots) who’s keen to make a break into acting. He falls for the youngster and makes a promise to help advance her career from the streets to the stage, until things go awry when the starlet winds up auditioning for a play starring his wife. Or, at least, that’s »

The director of such classics as The Last Picture Show and Paper Moon is finally making a return after 14 years of absence from features, but after watching the trailer for She’s Funny That Way, I wonder if it’s anything to celebrate. Peter Bogdanovich has been keeping plenty busy over the past decade and a half, doing a little more acting, some hosting duties on TCM, maintaining a blog at Indiewire and helming some TV movies, namely biopics about Natalie Wood and Pete Rose, and a documentary on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. But his last true picture show, as far as a theatrical narrative release, was the 2001 historically inspired jazz-age farce The Cat’s Meow. For his comeback, Bogdanovich has written another wild comedy, this time with ex-wife Louise Stratten, and he’s corralled a very impressive cast, as someone of his background can easily do. Imogen Poots stars as a high-class prostitute-turned-Broadway star who »

Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Imogen Poots, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, Lucy Punch, and Rhys Ifans are just a few of the recognizable faces in the trailer for Peter Bogdanovich's new comedy, She's Funny That Way. There are a lot of moving parts to this movie, but basically Isabelle (Poots) is an aspiring actress who accidentally sleeps with the married director of a play she's auditioning for. She's also a prostitute on the side, and her therapist (Aniston) is a bit unconventional. The movie opens on April 10, and if you've liked Bogdanovich's previous comedies like Noises Off . . . , you should check out the trailer below and see even more trailers for this year's upcoming movies. »
When you pack Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Jennifer Aniston, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, Lucy Punch, Debi Mazar, Rhys Ifans, Cybill Shepherd, Colleen Camp, Illeana Douglas and Tatum O’Neal in the same movie, things are bound to get a little hairy, but that's just the right tempo Peter Bogdanovich was going for in "She's Funny That Way." And the first trailer for the star-studded, screwball comedy has arrived. The story revolves around call girl/aspiring actress Isabelle Patterson who has a one night stand with married-with-kids Broadway director Albert. But it gets far more complicated for Albert when Isabelle shows up for an audition for this latest play, which also happens to star his current wife. The plot also includes private eyes, therapists, and no shortage of tangled threads. The result? Well, we called it "manufactured, sweet and unpretentious" though it contains "next to no nutritional value." "She's Funny That Way" arrives on April. »
